Mike Nichols: 5 Must-See Movies

3 hours ago | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

A movie by Mike Nichols is typically an elegant, unruffled ride across a smooth, even chilly surface - the movie's value glints upward from beneath that ice. The director, who died Wednesday at 83, over the years pared down any attempt at visual flourish - The Graduate, his groundbreaking early film that remains his most famous, is probably also one of his flashiest. What fired him up, what he bored down into, was the intellectual germ (or gem) of the story. This meant that he was willing to consider anything for his camera: erotic werewolves (Wolf), World War II (Catch-22), philandering »

An Intimate Conversation With Mike Nichols

4 hours ago | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Two years ago, on the eve of his eagerly awaited Broadway revival of Death of a Salesman, I sat down with Mike Nichols to look back on his remarkable career. During those two-plus hours together at the Mark Hotel in Manhattan, the legendary director, then 80, reminisced about a life of highs and lows that began as a bright-eyed young boy who fled Nazi Germany for America. "I remember everything about getting on the boat in Germany in 1939," Nichols said. "I was 7, my brother was 3, and my father was already in New York setting up his practice as a doctor. German Jews couldn't leave the country, »

Inside Diane Sawyer and Mike Nichols's Longtime Romance

5 hours ago | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

On the surface, their story reads like something out of a sophisticated 1930s romantic comedy: the urbane stage director, at a low point in his life, meets a younger but highly accomplished and gorgeous journalist. And sparks fly. Only, this was the mid-'80s, and for real. Mike Nichols, already a lion of Broadway and Hollywood, was 54, and Diane Sawyer was 40 and a correspondent on CBS's 60 Minutes, when he first set eyes on her "on the Concorde - if you want to talk about glamorous," Nichols told the Hollywood Reporter in 2012.

Recounting Mike Nichols' climb from comedian to Egot-winner

7 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

When people pass away, we often praise them with, "What couldn’t they do?" Exaggeration. With Mike Nichols, there’s really no answer to the theoretical. A seasoned comedian, a pillar of New York City theater, a successful film director — earning a Best Picture nomination, four Best Director nominations, and one win in the latter category — and one of only 12 people to successfully collect the coveted Egot, when it came to the entertainment industry, there really wasn’t anything he couldn’t do. He went out on a high. Thursday morning, we learned that Nichols passed away at the age of 83. Fleeing Nazi-occupied Germany in 1938, Nichols wound up in New York City and called the city home for nearly his entire life. Attending college in Chicago, he became part of the theater and comedy scenes, joining Second City and forming the comedy duo Nichols and May, along with actress Elaine May. »

Whoopi Goldberg Breaks Down Sobbing Over Director Mike Nichols’ Death

8 hours ago | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

The sudden death of renowned director Mike Nichols is being felt immensely in Hollywood.

Nichols, whose many accolades include The Graduate, Working Girl, Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, Closer, Charlie Wilson's War, Annie, Spamalot and The Birdcage, passed away at age 83 on Wednesday.

The award-winning director/producer is credited with launching Whoopi Goldberg's career when he brought her one-woman show to Broadway. On Thursday's The View, Goldberg broke down in sobs as she attempted to pay tribute to Nichols. Unable to speak, her co-host Nicolle Wallace chimed in, "This man meant the world to her."

The show then flashed back to when the director appeared on the program in 2012 and Goldberg was able to thank her mentor for all he'd done for her. "Whenever I'm with you, I know I'm okay," she said to Nichols at the time, getting teary-eyed during the interview.

New Into The Woods Featurette Shows off Meryl Streep Singing “Stay with Me”

8 hours ago | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Fun fact: Meryl Streep has been nominated for an Oscar five times in the last seven years.  Combine her extraordinary acting ability with the pedigree of Into the Woods, and she could easily lock up yet another nod (which would make it her 18th Oscar nomination over the course of her career; that's what happens when you're a national treasure).  A new featurette for the upcoming musical further pushes her awards chances as Stephen Sondheim, who wrote the music and lyrics, praises her ability "to find colors in lyric."  This featurette shows some of Streep singing "Stay with Me", and it's a beautiful rendition.  I hope the rest of the film is worthy of her immense talent. Hit the jump to check out the new Into the Woods featurette.  The film opens December 25th, and also stars Emily Blunt, James Corden, Anna Kendrick, Chris Pine, Lucy Punch, Christine Baranski, Tracy Ullman, »

Mike Nichols: ‘Angels In America’ Was Like ‘Being in Heaven Early’

9 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

In one of his final interviews, Mike Nichols said he considered “Angels in America”–the sprawling 2003 HBO mini-series adapted from the Tony Kushner play about the AIDs crisis—-as the crowning achievement of his career.

“When I did ‘Angels in America,’ and I had Emma Thompson, Meryl Streep, Mary-Louise Parker and Al Pacino, it was like being in heaven a little early,” Nichols said.

Nichols, the director of classic films “The Graduate,” “Working Girl” and “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?,” died at 83. He spoke to me in November 2013 by phone for a profile I was working on Emma Thompson, who appeared in three of his films.

Remembrances of Nichols pored in from across the entertainment industry on Thursday, with many hailing him as a beloved visionary. But Nichols admitted that he did manage to make an enemy out of Bill Clinton after 1998’s “Primary Colors,” a political comedy starring »

Mike Nichols Movies: 18 Essential Films You Should Watch Right Now

10 hours ago | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Few directors can be said to have changed the way films are made, but Mike Nichols, who died Wednesday at 83, was one of them. His first film, "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?" (1966), ended decades of Hollywood censorship of adult content and freed the movies for mature language and subject matter ever after. His second film, "The Graduate," was the first serious mainstream movie to feature a rock soundtrack (spawning Simon and Garfunkel's hit "Mrs. Robinson") and, through its casting of Dustin Hoffman, expanded Hollywood's notion of what a leading man ought to look and sound like.

Nichols wasn't born in America (he and his family escaped from Nazi Germany when he was a child), but he was one of the best chroniclers of contemporary America -- its politics, its aspirations, its dreams, its aristocracy, and its successes and failures -- in movies. His youth in Manhattan as the son »

Mike Nichols, the brilliant director of great films such as "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf," "The Graduate," "The Working Girl," "The Birdcage" and many more has passed away. He was 83.

Married to ABC News Anchor Diane Sawyer for 26 years, the report of his death was announced on Thursday morning by ABC News President James Goldston. The director died suddenly late Wednesday night.

Nichols was one of the best directors of both stage and film. He was one of the few to win the Egot award -- Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony. When I was a college student at Purdue University, I devoured his movies specifically "The Graduate" and "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf."

In later years, Nichols even brought us the great HBO special "Angels in America" based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning play by Tony Kushner. Nichols was working on a new project for HBO . an adaptation of Terrence McNally »

Mike Nichols (1931-2014)

13 hours ago | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Elaine May & Mike Nichols in the 50s"The Great Work begins..." that's a line from Angels in America but someone should've said it in the 1950s when one of the greatest figures in modern showbusiness began his career on Chicago stages as a university student. Mike Nichols, who died yesterday at 83, first gained fame as half of a celebrated comic duo "Nichols & May" with actress/director Elaine May but comedy sketches were only the beginning. He'd eventually conquer all realms of showbusiness winning a Grammy with May for a comedy album in 1961, the first of several Tony Awards for directing Barefoot in the Park on Broadway (1964), an Oscar for directing The Graduate (1967) which was only his second film, and in the last decade of his career, two Emmys for television triumphs with Wit and the aforementioned Angels.
