1. The Power Couple: J.Lo and A-Rod took their stardom to the next level when they became J-Rod a year ago. “We are very much twins,” Rodriguez told Vanity Fair last year. “We’re both Leos; we’re both from New York; we’re both Latino and about 20 other things.
Cruz, who plays Gianni Versace’s sister Donatella in the new FX show The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story, wore the designer to the event. The long-sleeved white gown flowed to the floor, with her left leg peeking out from a high slit. Metallic embellishments adorned Cruz’s shoulders and highlighted her waist, and she accessorized with matching silver heels and dangling earrings.
The 43-year-old actress wore her brunette locks in waves and
‘Bpm (Beats Per Minute)’
Robin Campillo’s Aids activism drama Bpm (Beats Per Minute) leads nominations in France’s 2018 César awards which were announced in Paris on Wednesday morning (Jan 31).
Scroll down for the key nominations
The feature drama took 13 nominations including best film, best director and best screenplay and best male newcomer for its co-stars Nahuel Pérez Biscayart and Arnaud Valois.
France’s Academy of Cinema Arts and Sciences unveiled the nominations at its traditional news conference at the Le Fouquet’s restaurant on the Champs-Elysées.
The popularity of Campillo’s film among the academy’s members came as little surprise. Although ignored by Oscar and Golden Globe, the Cannes Grand Prix winner has been a critical and box office success in France where the film has drawn more than 800,000 spectators for Memento Distribution.
It also leads the nominations in the upcoming
“Significant parts of the on Gianni Versace’s murder do not reflect the reality of the events that took place,” says D’Amico, 59. “I feel — together with those who know me well — that my character … is a misrepresentation of myself and what our relationship was like.”
In particular, D’Amico points to a scene
“Penelope Cruz has the talent to shine in international productions as much as in [smaller] films, whether [she’s working] for Ridley Scott, Rob Marshall, Kenneth Branagh, Sergio Castellitto, Fernando Trueba or Asghar Farhadi, with whom she has just wrapped ‘Everybody Knows’ (‘Todos Lo Saben’), which will come out in May,” said Alain Terzian, the president of the Academy of Arts and Techniques of Cinema.
In the statement announcing Cruz’s honorary Cesar, Terzian discusses the actress’s relationship with Alejandro Amenábar and especially Pedro Almodóvar, with whom she has done several films, including “Live Flesh,” “All About My Mother,” “I’m So Excited!,””Broken Embraces” and “Volver,” which earned her a best actress prize at Cannes in 2006 and an Oscar nomination.
While working on this installment of the series, costume designers Lou Eyrich and Allison Leach developed a deeper appreciation of the late designer’s artistry as they researched his garments and accessories at the Fidm Museum & Galleries in downtown Los Angeles — home to the Versace Menswear Archive.
“We were able to look at actual garments you couldn’t touch without white gloves,” says Leach. “We were able to see the seam work and the detail and …re-create the garments with integrity.”
The costume designers didn’t have to remake every piece worn by Édgar Ramírez, who plays Gianni Versace, and Penélope Cruz, who was cast as his sister, Donatella. They sourced vintage Versace from vendors at L.A. clothing
According to Nielsen Live+3 data, the launch of the second installment of the Ryan Murphy anthology series drew 5.5 million viewers, including the premiere telecast, three encores, and multiplatform viewing. The premiere telecast alone accounted for 3.6 million of those viewers in Live+3, making it one of the top cable premieres of the last two years. It also ranked number one for the night of Jan. 17 in multiple demographics, including adults 18-49, and total viewers.
Of its 5.5 million viewers, 1.5 million fell in the adults 18-49 demo, making it FX’s most-watched drama or limited series premiere in Live+3 since “Legion” drew 1.8 million last February.
Nevertheless, the series has failed to come close to the record-setting numbers achieved by the first season of the show “The People v. Oj Simpson.” The premiere
Atrescine will begin broadcasting by the end of February or in early March. The announcement was made Wednesday, Jan. 17, at Miami’s Natpe.
The new channel is fruit of a strategic alliance, in which Atresmedia Internacional brings to the table its Latino TV market know-how and Video Mercury its powerful movie catalogue, which encompasses more than 7,000 film titles.
“Being a strategic agreement, not a mere content purchase, both partners aim for Atrescine to become the reference channel of Spanish film,” said Javier Nuche, Atresmedia Internacional general director.
One large question is how Atrescine will sit aside Mis Películas TV, the Spanish film channel Video Mercury launched in 2013, targeting the U.S. and Latin
Penélope Cruz, who will play Versace’s sister Donatella, admits that although the famous fashion designer’s family is not on board with the project, she made sure to be on good terms with Gianni’s sibling before portraying her on-screen. “When Ryan told me, I said to him, ‘This sounds really interesting, but I have to make this call and I have to talk to Donatella,'” she told Entertainment Tonight
During an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Wednesday, Criss opened up about shooting the upcoming FX series, The Assassination of Gianni Versace, which chronicles the 1997 murder of the Italian designer outside his Miami Beach home at the hands of Andrew Cunanan, played by Criss.
“He was a spree killer, a very troubled young man who does not follow the typical prerequisites of a killer,” said Criss, 30, of Cunanan.
The show — which focuses on the final days and murder of the Italian fashion designer — came under fire earlier in the day when the Versace family denounced it, calling it “a work of fiction.”
“The Versace family has neither authorized nor had any involvement whatsoever in the forthcoming TV series about the death of Mr. Gianni Versace,” the brand said in a statement to People. “Since Versace did not
As Versace: American Crime Story‘s premiere date of Jan. 17 nears, the family has denounced the FX adaptation.
“The Versace family has neither authorized nor had any involvement whatsoever in the forthcoming TV series about the death of Mr. Gianni Versace,” the brand says in a statement to People. “Since Versace did not authorize the book on which it is partly based nor has it taken part in the writing of the screenplay, this TV series should only
With the exception of just a few stars, almost every actress who hit the red carpet at The Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles on Sunday was dressed in black, as part of the "Time's Up" blackout, protesting gender inequality and sexual harassment that has long plagued Hollywood.
The red carpet is normally a place where celebrities are put on a pedestal. We marvel over who they're wearing, who had the best (and worst!) head-to-toe looks. But this year, it was about something more. It was about enacting change, and getting people to talk about the issues that celebrities like Rose McGowan, Ashley Judd and Reese Witherspoon have bravely brought to national attention over the past few months.
Needless to say, it worked. The movement got everyone talking, and the A-listers spent their interview time explaining why they chose to speak up
