Meet Celebrity Facialist Joanna Vargas, Who Has ‘About 30’ Starry Clients for Oscars

Just in time for the Oscars, New York-based celebrity facialist Joanna Vargas — whose clients include Sofia Coppola, Naomi Watts and Julianne Moore — has opened a chic salon in the Sunset Tower Hotel.

“It was my home away from home for years,” says Vargas, who spends the last week of each month in Los Angeles tending to her West Coast clients, of the iconic L.A. landmark. “I would do awards seasons there, and I always dreamt about being there permanently.

Vargas opened her first L.A. outpost, an unlisted address in West Hollywood, in 2016. The ultra-secretive salon proved so popular, she soon outgrew the space. “The demand was just too great,” Vargas says of the “smaller, more intimate” location. “Having a bit of a wait list is one thing; it’s less chic when you can’t even fit regulars in.”

Vargas readied Greta Gerwig, Elisabeth Moss, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Dakota Johnson, Emma Roberts, [link

Does (possible) Oscar win + no Julia Louis-Dreyfus = 8th Emmy for Allison Janney?

Does (possible) Oscar win + no Julia Louis-Dreyfus = 8th Emmy for Allison Janney?
Following six straight years of dominance by Julia Louis-Dreyfus, there will be a new Best Comedy Actress Emmy winner this year since “Veep” is sitting out the season to accommodate Louis-Dreyfus’ breast cancer treatment. But the “new” winner could very well be an old face: Allison Janney, who would win her record-tying eighth Emmy.

After nabbing two supporting wins for “Mom,” Janney shifted to the lead category last year and faced off with her then-fellow seven-time winner Louis-Dreyfus. Now with Louis-Dreyfus Mia, Janney is in prime position to succeed her, especially if the “I, Tonya” star wins the Best Supporting Actress Oscar as predicted.

Sundance Review: John Cho's Search is a Good Movie with a Disappointing Ending

Search is the story of one family, specifically, a father and daughter, told completely through computer screens. I wasn't entirely sold on the premise either. It seemed too gimmicky, but from the Windows Xp startup screen, I was hooked. The story unfolds through pictures, emails, home videos, you name it. And within the first ten minutes, I was not only completely invested, but crying like I hadn't cried during an opening sequence since Pixar's Up. 

After the family faces a devastating tragedy (no spoilers), the father David (John Cho) and his daughter Margot have a seemingly typical father-daughter relationship, with David pestering his daughter with iMessages about taking out the trash. But all is not as it seems.

One night, Margot, who claimed to be at an all-night study session, disappears. She doesn't respond to calls or texts, and none of her classmates seem to know where she is.

Sundance Review: ‘Search’ Entertainingly Traps John Cho in the Digital World

John Cho should be our next leading man. Above all else does the thriller Search, directed by Aneesh Chaganty, make this abundantly clear. Cho stars as David Kim, recently-widowed father of teenage daughter Margot (Michelle La) and doing his best to keep his composure. Opening on a heartfelt and heartbreaking montage of messages and moments as displayed on a computer screen, Chaganty establishes what will be the aesthetic of the picture.

We never leave the computer screen, following all action from Kim’s communication via Facetime, iMessage, Gmail, etc. When Margot goes missing, Kim enlists the help of an investigator (Debra Messing) to lead the search, while he frantically investigates her laptop. Written by Chaganty and Sev Ohanian, new information moves on screen like a bullet, speaking soundly to the tech hurricane we currently live in. Windows are dragged from left to right, minimized and maximized as David plays detective,

Sundance Film Review: ‘Search’

Sundance Film Review: ‘Search’
“Search” is one of those movies, like “Tarnation” or “The Blair Witch Project,” so unique in its approach that Sundance can only program something of its kind once before the gimmick gets old — in this case, a taut missing-persons investigation that unfolds entirely on computer screens. Good thing then that first-time feature director Aneesh Chaganty has concocted such an exceptionally clever riff on that idea. Cutting to the emotional core of what social media says about us, the result is as much a time capsule of our relationship to (and reliance upon) modern technology as it is a cutting-edge digital thriller.

No wonder then that Sony shelled out $5 million for worldwide rights to a film that others will surely be imitating for years to come. Not that Chaganty invented the big-screen-as-computer-screen conceit — that approach has already been quite lucrative for Timur Bekmambetov, who produced both “Search” and the “Unfriended” franchise, with countless

‘Search’ Review: John Cho Stars In Thrilling Abduction Drama That Exists Entirely on a Computer Screen — Sundance 2018

‘Search’ Review: John Cho Stars In Thrilling Abduction Drama That Exists Entirely on a Computer Screen — Sundance 2018
As technology has infiltrated every aspect of modern living, a number of films have attempted to integrate its influence into their storytelling methods. However, few have gone beyond mastering the basics, like making an on-screen text message look believable. In 2015, the horror outing “Unfriended” took the idea to a new level: the entire feature takes place on a laptop screen and plays off the weird interconnectivity that allows cyber-stalking – in this case, seemingly from beyond the grave – to seep into “real life.” Aneesh Chaganty’s “Search” similarly blends storytelling with theme, but the final result is something far more inspiring, one that reaches way beyond its initial gimmick to deliver an engrossing ride.

Debra Messing: #TimesUp Everywhere, Not Just in Hollywood (Video)
Debra Messing says the recent sea change in regards to Hollywood’s sexual misconduct problem is not a temporary shift in attitude, but rather the beginning of systematic change. “There’s been this call to arms — this incredible need to enact change,” Messing told TheWrap’s Sharon Waxman at the Sundance Film Festival. “The Time’s Up initiative — that is something that is just starting,” said the “Will & Grace” star, adding that nearly $20 million has already been raised toward legal help for accusers dealing with sexual harassment in the workplace.

John Cho Lauds Asian-American Casting in New Film ‘Search’

John Cho Lauds Asian-American Casting in New Film ‘Search’
John Cho discussed the significance of showcasing an Asian-American family in his upcoming film “Search” at the Variety Studio presented by At&T at the Sundance Film Festival.

Cho said it was “exciting” to play a member of an all Asian-American family in the thriller. “I’m usually paired with someone who is not Asian, which is progressive in its own sense,” he said. “But I thought to have a complete family that was all Asian-American was an interesting thing. It wasn’t what it was about, but it was a part of it, and I like that.”

Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions just acquired global rights to the film for $5 million. “Search” also stars Debra Messing. It centers on a father who uses his online detective skills to look for his missing 16-year-old daughter. He uses clues left on her laptop to solve the mystery. The camera work for the movie mirrors the point-of-view from smartphones and computer
