The Pro Files: Celeb Makeup Artist Rachel Goodwin on Emma Stone, Social Media and Nars Orgasm Blush

24 February 2017 8:12 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Emma Stone’s makeup artist has no concept of time, but that’s probably a good thing — as it’s 10:30 p.m. when the artist picks up my call. With her longtime client at an event for La La Land, Rachel Goodwin finds a quiet spot in a Paris hotel to talk. She’s been on the road for days, and has a cold — but neither that or the hour dampen her mood. Goodwin is game to talk about makeup any time. And after an illustrious 24-year career in the industry, she still speaks about it with a level of drive, »

Cate Blanchett on Crafting a Career, One Choice at a Time: Awards Season Flashback

24 February 2017 7:45 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

[Editor’s Note: This post is presented in partnership with Spectrum. Catch up on this year’s Awards Season contenders and past winners On Demand. Today’s flashback winner is “Lord of the Rings: Return of the King.”]

In a career that already seen five Oscar nominations and one win for a body of work that includes remarkable performances as Queen Elizabeth, Bob Dylan and Katherine Hepburn, no less, Cate Blanchett somehow topped herself this year.

As the title character in Woody Allen’s “Blue Jasmine,” Blanchett plays a woman whose wealthy husband (Alec Baldwin) has lost all their money, forcing her to abandon their upper class Manhattan life to live with her working class sister (Sally Hawkins) in San Francisco. Even at this point, Jasmine is somewhere past the verge of a nervous breakdown, and Blanchett manages her character’s subsequent further spiraling with a tour-de-force authenticity that blew away audiences and critics alike.

Leading into the Oscars, Blanchett has already won a slew of kudos for “Blue Jasmine,” including a Golden Globe, honors from the New York and Los Angeles critics groups and nominations from SAG, »

Marion Cotillard thinks very highly of Jennifer Lawrence!

In a new interview with W Magazine, the Allied star confessed her girl crush on the Passengers actress, sharing, "Jennifer Lawrence is a prodigy."

Thor: Ragnarok - Fans Mad There May Be Humor? Seriously?

22 February 2017 2:00 PM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

I just discovered a few interesting tweets on Taika Waititi's (director of upcoming Thor film) twitter (@TaikaWaititi), where some people are b**ching that, god forbid, Thor: Ragnarok may have some humor involved in it. One fan expressed as much Waititi himself.

@TaikaWaititi Taika, how do you feel knowing that there are angry people by Thor Ragnarok adapting a more comic tone?

— Alvaro S. (@alvarof616) February 21, 2017

Surprisingly enough, Waititi saw the tweet, and even went so far as to respond in a hilarious way:

Sounds like they need to laugh. https://t.co/fCB5AwQoDA

Thor: Ragnarok director responds to concerns over the film’s comedic tone

22 February 2017 12:44 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The director of upcoming Marvel sequel Thor: Ragnarok, Taika Waititi, has weighed in on any fan concerns regarding the film’s recently revealed comedic tone.

You can never please everyone, and those that try and are destined to fail. It seems director of the latest Thor movie Taika Waititi understands this when responding on Twitter to the concerns of a fan, who brought up their reservations over the supposedly heavy comedic tone of Thor’s third solo outing.

Waititi responded by saying “Sounds like some people need to laugh”, and didn’t seem to be in the mood to offer reassurances of any kind. Take a look at the exchange here…

Sounds like they need to laugh. https://t.co/fCB5AwQoDA

Did the 2007 Oscars get it right?

22 February 2017 11:38 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Simon Brew Feb 24, 2017

It’s Oscar weekend! But how well do the Academy Award choices of ten years ago hold up? We’ve taken a look...

The Academy Awards are the highest profile snapshot of what films are highly rated within 12 months of their release. What they can’t predict, however, is how well regarded their choices will age, and only time can tell you that. Which is why I thought it’d be interesting to go back a decade, and see how the winners of the 79th Academy Awards, handed out on February 25th 2007, stack up ten years on…

Best Picture: The Departed

Also nominated:

Babel Letters From Iwo Jima Little Miss Sunshine The Queen

At the time, there was a little bit of acceptance that The Departed was the Scent Of A Woman moment. That just as Al Pacino got rewarded for good work in a film that’s not his finest, »

Seth Meyers’ ‘Oscar Bait’ Movie Spoof is a Great Film Industry Satire — Watch

22 February 2017 8:46 AM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

With the Academy Awards taking place this weekend, awards season is coming to glorious end. But before that, “Late Night with Seth Meyers” is poking some fun at the film industry’s obsession with awards with a fake trailer for “Oscar Bait,” a film that would have all the necessary elements to be Oscar-worthy.

When it comes to making an attempt to win an Oscar, Meyer’s fake film checks off all the boxes. It contains “racial tension, latent homosexuality, and a man staring at trains”. It also includes tragedy, an unhappy marriage and its main character suffers from a rare decease.

Meyer’s film takes some elements from award show darlings such as “Manchester by the Sea,” “Boyhood,” and “Moonlight.” It even steals a scene straight up from the movie “Carol,” starring Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara. »

Watch Cate Blanchett Slay a Lip Sync of "You Don't Own Me" at a Stonewall Inn Drag Show

22 February 2017 8:33 AM, PST | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

The audience at the Stonewall Inn's Tuesday night benefit performance for the Newtown Action Alliance got a special surprise when Cate Blanchett took the stage. In an effort to raise money for the charity, which strives to end gun violence, the Oscar winner slayed a lip sync of Dusty Springfield's version of "You Don't Own Me" wearing a black tuxedo jacket, a sequined bra, and a whole lot of sass. Later on, the Ocean's Eight actress grabbed her pink pussyhat to sing backup on a protest-themed version of Adele's "Hello." In addition to making our day, it has reminded us - admittedly not for the first time - that we're all in dire need of a Carol musical. You hear that, movie studio execs? Make it happen.

Thor: Ragnarok - Why Loki & Thor Have To Team Up Yet Again For This Third Outing

22 February 2017 8:26 AM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

What’s a Thor movie without Loki? Sadly, not much. As great as the character of Thor has become in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, his love-hate relationship with Loki is one of the most compelling things about what makes him so likable. His struggle with Loki is Shakespearean in scope, and their bickering back and forth is something anyone with a sibling can relate to. Plus, given how Thor: The Dark World left off, we knew the mischievous Asgardian would have some role to play in Thor: Ragnarok, the third film in the trilogy.

This was confirmed relatively recently when Doctor Strange hit Digital HD. In the special features, we saw a piece of concept art that showed Loki and Thor once again teaming up — this time against big bad Hela, played by Cate Blanchett. But what are the circumstances surrounding this teamup? What brings these two together yet again, »

Cate Blanchett Reminds You Why She’s A Gay Icon With Powerhouse Drag Bar Lip Sync — Watch

22 February 2017 8:07 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Oscars, be damned. When a drag queen introduces you with, “Chauncey, if we could close down the cans and just do a very tight, tight, spot for this young lady,” that’s how you know you’ve made it.

Though Cate Blanchett has long been beloved by queer audiences for her androgynous look and what she can do with an arched brow, her most recent performance really sealed the deal. The “Carol” actress proved herself worthy of the title “diva” Monday night in New York City, when she thrilled a small crowd at the legendary Stonewall Inn with a surprise performance of Lesley Gore’s “You Don’t Own Me.”

Tom Hiddleston says Loki would “probably dismiss Doctor Strange” and his magic

22 February 2017 7:45 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Tom Hiddleston recently spoke to IGN as part of the Kong: Skull Island promotional campaign, but naturally he was fielded questions regarding the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Specifically, Hiddleston was asked how Loki would react to Doctor Strange and Hela, to which Hiddleston replied:

“I think he probably dismisses Strange. Yes, his sorcery is very impressive, but Loki’s been doing that for centuries so who cares. Hela is a different beast and full of surprises and actually might have been someone with whom at one time he could’ve gotten along, but the circumstances have changed.”

We may find out just how Loki reacts to Doctor Strange later this year, as both Tom Hiddleston and Benedict Cumberbatch are set to feature in Thor: Ragnarok.

Loki Doesn’t Think Much Of Marvel’s Sorcerer Supreme In Thor: Ragnarok, According To Tom Hiddleston

22 February 2017 6:28 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Say what you will about Marvel’s longstanding villain problem – something studio head Kevin Feige has often acknowledged when reflecting on the grand McU – but if there’s one antagonist that stands head and shoulders above the rest, luscious black locks and all, it’s Loki.

Tom Hiddleston’s God of Mischief is arguably one of the highlights of the Thor standalone movies, and his central role in Joss Whedon’s Avengers back in 2012 (“mewling quim!”) was enough to cement his status as a bona fide fan-favorite. Now, Hiddleston is prepped and ready to reprise as Loki for November’s Thor: Ragnarok, and it seems Asgard’s prodigal son isn’t all that impressed by the advent of one Doctor Strange. Yes, Benedict Cumberbatch’s Sorcerer Supreme has secured his place in Taika Waititi’s galactic threequel, and early reports suggest that he’ll enjoy a fairly significant chunk of screentime. »

Cate Blanchett lip-synchs to You Don't Own Me at New York drag show – video

At a benefit to end gun violence organised by the Newtown Action Alliance, Cate Blanchett took to the stage at New York’s historic Stonewall Inn wearing a sparkling gold bra, a blazer and glittering red lips – with her husband Andrew Upton among those in the crowd.

The Australian actor lip-synched to Dusty Springfield’s take on You Don’t Own Me, before returning to the stage for Margeaux Powell’s performance of Adele’s Hello, donning a pink ‘pussy hat’ – the knitted beanies that were prevalent throughout the Women’s March on Washington.

Cate Blanchett Lip-Syncs “You Don’t Own Me” at a Drag Show

It’s pretty hard to not like Cate Blanchett.  I mean if you equate her to some of the characters she’s played in movies I can see where there might be an “elitist” kind of a vibe.  But as long as you detach yourself from the roles she plays what you see in a real life is an extremely intelligent, talented, and overall, solid individual.  But if there’s one thing you probably didn’t think about Cate Blanchett, it’s that she’d by lip syncing at a Drag Show.
