Op-Ed: Reese Witherspoon’s Push to #AskHerMore at the Oscars Was a Runaway Success

24 February 2015 5:37 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Documentary filmmaker and actress Jennifer Siebel Newsom founded The Representation Project, a media advocacy group, in April 2011 to call out gender stereotypes. The #AskHerMore campaign, which the group spearheaded, tasked red-carpet interviewers to ask actresses more questions about acting and social causes rather than their fashion. Amy Poehler, Reese Witherspoon and Lena Dunham have been vocal about their support. Newsom, who is behind the 2011 doc Miss Representation, is the wife of California Lieutenant Governor Gavin Newsom.

"We’re more than just our dresses." What a powerful statement for Reese Witherspoon to make on the Oscars red carpet Sunday. Don’t get us wrong, my friend Reese and I both love fashion and want to celebrate the amazing designers who make red carpet couture. But the Oscars are a celebration of the highest achievements in film and that's where the focus should be, regardless of the nominee's gender.

Patricia Arquette Delivers Rousing Speech For 'Boyhood' Best Supporting Actress Win

22 February 2015 10:41 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Patricia Arquette was a lock to win Best Supporting Actress, so it was no surprise when her name was announced at the Oscars on Sunday night.

Every one of her Boyhood co-stars jumped to their feet to hug her before she walked to the stage -- which she accepted with teary-eyed enthusiasm -- except for the embrace from Ellar Coltrane, the young actor who appeared next to her for 12 years of filming.

Etonline

Sorry, Ellar! At least Ethan Hawke was there to give him a big bear hug. Patricia needed to take the stage to deliver the most amazing speech of the entire awards season.

The 46-year-old actress used her time on stage to make her opinions of women's rights heard, and the audience couldn’'t have cheered any louder.

Reese Witherspoon Campaigns for Red Carpet Reporters to #AskHerMore Than 'What Are You Wearing?'

22 February 2015 4:50 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

One of the big questions female celebrities hear on the red carpet of any awards show is "Who are you wearing?" While everyone is curious about the gorgeous gowns flowing through the event, Reese Witherspoon and other stars are trying to change the conversation to include more.

Doc Nominee Rory Kennedy Celebrates at Chateau Marmont

20 February 2015 7:02 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Oscar week festivities made room for the serious on Friday as docu filmmaker Rory Kennedy, Oscar-nommed for “Last Days in Vietnam,” was celebrated at Dom Perignon’s fourth annual Academy Awards luncheon.

A mix of industryites (“American Experience’s” executive producer Mark Samels; producer Ron Yerxa; thesps Minnie Driver, Peter Fonda, Julian Sands and Cheryl Hines), fashionistas (Valentino’s Carlos Souza, Nicky Hilton) and friends of the producer-director (including “Still Alice’s” executive producer and Kennedy first cousin Maria Shriver) joined Kennedy at the Chateau Marmont for a flower-filled and bubbly-fueled luncheon on the hotel’s scenic garden terrace.

Hotelier Andre Balazs was the host along with executives from the French champagne house. First-time nominee Kennedy found that documentaries and champagne “go very well together, as it turns out.” Notably, the documentary feature category (unlike the director category) includes two women director nominees — Kennedy as well as “Citizen Four’s” Laura Poitras. »

PopPolitics: Robert Redford Says Gop Is ‘Living in the 1950s’ on Climate Change (Listen)

17 January 2015 1:44 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Robert Redford, a guest on the latest edition of Variety‘s PopPolitics on SiriusXM, says that the Republican drive to pass a bill greenlighting the Keystone pipeline “makes no sense,” attributing the Gop majority’s prioritization of the project to the influence of the oil lobby and too many lawmakers “living in the 1950s.”

He also singled out Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

“Somebody has got to start looking at the bigger picture here and telling what the real truth is, so you don’t have people like Mitch McConnell giving you truth that is falsified,” Redford said in an interview. “He represents the polluters’ interest because he is living in the 1950s. So for me we are missing real leadership. Instead we have a guy who looks like he just slid out from under a rock trying to propose an idea that is simply not that truthful. Somebody has »
