Here Are the Grey's Anatomy Characters You'll See on Station 19

If you enjoyed the easy chemistry between Meredith Grey and Andy Herrera in the Grey's Anatomy and Station 19 crossover episode, you're about to get more of it in the upcoming Station 19 premiere. Yup, Grey Sloan's dark and twisty Harper Avery winner makes a fairly emotional appearance in the pilot of Shondaland's new firefighting drama. In the official promo teaser, Meredith hears that Andy's father is at Grey Sloan. The surgeon leads a profusely sobbing Andy into a supply closet to offer some consolation and then later tells her, "Ok, that's enough. Now put your game face on." We're totally not crying over Meredith's big-sister vibes. Meredith fans will love Station 19's spunky, tough heroine. Like Meredith, Andy is relentlessly brave and also very good at her job.

Female-Driven Alternative to Rotten Tomatoes Announced

Hollywood’s time of reckoning has arrived, and movements like Time’s Up, #MeToo, and #OscarsSoWhite are keeping the pressure on. Now, the continued reflection has pushed film criticism into the limelight. At this year’s South by Southwest, filmmaker Miranda Bailey spoke on a panel with critics Anne Powers and Claudia Puig and actor Samantha Mathis about the lack of female representation in film and music criticism before announcing the launch of a new website, CherryPicks, aiming to upend the male majority and offer an alternative rankings roundup to Rotten Tomatoes. According to a study by the Center for the Study of Women in Television and Film at San Diego State University, 73 percent of Rotten Tomatoes’ top critics are men. “Because I’m a filmmaker, this is one place where I’ve noticed that film criticism is skewed toward one point of view,” Bailey said in an interview published by Vulture.

Watch Our Jim Gaffigan Interview Go Completely Off the Rails (Video)

  • The Wrap
TheWrap’s interview studio at the 2018 SXSW Film Festival ended in the best way possible — with an interview that went completely off the rails. “You Can Choose Your Family” stars Jim Gaffigan and Logan Miller, as well as director Miranda Bailey, joined TheWrap to discuss the comedy in Austin Texas, and from the moment the group sat down, Gaffigan, Miller and Bailey took control of the interview in the best way possible, and TheWrap’s film reporter Beatrice Verhoeven could barely squeeze a question in. The conversation went from comparing the film to “Call Me by Your Name,” where Miller said he was...

'You Can Choose Your Family': Film Review | SXSW 2018

'You Can Choose Your Family': Film Review | SXSW 2018
A teen discovers that his strict father has a second, happier family in another town in You Can Choose Your Family, the feature debut of director Miranda Bailey and screenwriter Glen Lakin. Standup star Jim Gaffigan, who mines domesticity for laughs so successfully onstage, would seem an ideal choice for a man with twice the responsibilities and one big secret to hide. But Bailey and Lakin give him next to nothing to work with, and the result flops where it should crackle. The comedian's popularity notwithstanding, the pic has little theatrical potential.

New Review Aggregate of Female Critics Launches at SXSW

According to a 2016 report from The Center for the Study of Women in Television & Film, women comprise just 27 percent of top critics on Rotten Tomatoes and men 73 percent of these individuals. Women account for more than half of moviegoers, but “major critical outlets … aggregate overwhelmingly male voices that deliver their ratings and reviews with a splat of gender bias,” a press release announcing the launch of CherryPicks details.

The new media review service is “by and for women” and aims to offer an alternative to male-dominated criticism — “a system that more accurately represents the range of critical and audience opinion, along with high-quality content from both established and new critical female voices.” The review aggregate and rating service will use female critics exclusively.

CherryPicks is headed by producer and director Miranda Bailey (“You Can Choose Your Family”) and producer and Gurl.com co-founder Rebecca Odes (“This Is Me”).

Rotten Tomatoes Alternative CherryPicks to Battle Gender Imbalance in Film Criticism

Rotten Tomatoes Alternative CherryPicks to Battle Gender Imbalance in Film Criticism
In the midst of annual studies measuring representation behind the camera, Hollywood is well aware that it needs to give female directors more opportunities to tell their own stories.

But film producer/director Miranda Bailey (The Squid and the Whale, Diary of a Teenage Girl) insists the gender imbalance among U.S. film critics — the vast majority are men — also needs addressing.

So she's launching CherryPicks, a Rotten Tomatoes-style site featuring female-only critics so they can recommend movies to like-minded women headed to the multiplex or streaming services and get their critical voices amplified.

"We're creating a platform where women...

Alternative Rotten Tomatoes Will Offer Aggregated Reviews and Ratings from Only Female Critics

Meet CherryPicks: a brand-new aggregate movie review and rating service that exclusively pulls from the work of female critics. Consider it an alternative to current aggregate behemoth Rotten Tomatoes, which remains mostly dominated by male critics and has become the handiest way for many movie-goers to get a handle on critical consensus regarding films, both new and old. CherryPicks wants to change the conversation.

Founded by director, producer, actor, and distributor Miranda Bailey, along with author, producer, and digital entrepreneur Rebecca Odes, the new service will launch its multi-platform website later this year. Later this month, the pair will introduce Cherry Bites, billed as “an email subscription that will spotlight women in criticism and female perspectives on media.”

“For years now, our industry has been proclaiming that we need change to include more minorities and females on both sides of the camera. This would be impossible to do in a speedy fashion,

How ‘You Can Choose Your Family’s Jim Gaffigan Humanized Husband With Second Family — SXSW

Grey's Anatomy Round Table: Finally, A Miranda Centric Episode!

It was all about Miranda Bailey on Grey's Anatomy Season 14 Episode 11!

Miranda fought like hell to prove to her doctors that she was having a heart attack, and in the interim, we found out more about the beloved chief of Grey Sloan Memorial.

Join TV Fanatics Stacy Glanzman, Paul Dailly, and Jasmine Blu as they break down this character-centric hour. Join the discussion below!

On a scale of 1-10, how much did you appreciate a Miranda centric episode after all of these years? Did you believe she would be killed off at any point?

Stacy: 10. I don't always love these character-centric episodes, but as long as they're doing them, it's about time Miranda got one. She's one of the originals, and there was so much about her past that we never knew.

No, I never believed she'd be killed off. I was confident she'd survive. Plus, if she had died

Grey’s Anatomy Review: Bailey Teaches Us To Be Our Own Advocate

Grey’s Anatomy had two very important messages as Dr. Miranda Bailey faced down her own mortality. The first, when it comes to your health, you must be your own advocate. There may come a point where you have to fight for your rights, to fight for what you know about your own body. The second is that life is too short to play it safe. The same way Bailey has to let go of her fear for Ben’s safety in his new job, we too must let go of some of the fear. We can only hope to do it

Grey's Anatomy's Chandra Wilson Was Never in Fear for Bailey's Survival: "I Live Too Much in Denial"

Grey's Anatomy's Chandra Wilson Was Never in Fear for Bailey's Survival:
Miranda Bailey, you had us worried for a minute. In last night's stellar episode of Grey's Anatomy, our favorite Chief of Surgery found herself on the receiving end of some subpar medical care at neighboring Seattle Presbyterian when she realized she was having a heart attack, but couldn't convince any of the narrow-minded docs at the lesser hospital that she knew what she was talking about. The emotional hour put us through the wringer, shedding some light on Miranda's upbringing and allowing the luminous Chandra Wilson to bask in the spotlight she so rightly deserved, but in the end, the fiercely devoted doc pulled through, coming to terms with hubby Ben Warren's (Jason George, who has departed Grey's...

Grey's Anatomy Promo: May the Odds Be in Their Favor!

It's time for a little healthy competition!

On Grey's Anatomy Season 14 Episode 12, Grey Sloan Memorial's finest will be engaging in a little friendly competition with a grand prize of $5 million dollars. 

What's a girl gotta do to get in on that?! 

Jackson came up with a competition of their own akin to the Harper Avery one, and this time he gets to partake in it himself. It's just what the hospital needed to revitalize the field and get the doctors passionate about research in their fields. 

It's so appealing that even Richard is in on it.  Unfortunately, he hoodwinked April into being the judge, so she can't compete with the others. She's not at all bitter about that.

Speaking of April, while this jaded, faithless woman is a far cry from the Little Miss Sunshine we have become accustomed to over all these years, I'm not mad at her shades

The Most Moving Moment on 'Grey's Anatomy' Reminds Us to Believe Women
The best and the worst moment in the latest episode of Grey's Anatomy, "(Don't Fear) The Reaper" isn't Miranda Bailey's heart attack. Although it's closely adjacent, the most moving thing about this episode isn't necessarily Bailey's health scare, but instead it's the conversation to which this episode contributes. Grey's uses both Bailey and Maggie Pierce to hammer home a pervasive problem plaguing a lot of American women.

Grey's Anatomy Season 14 Episode 11 Review: (Don't Fear) the Reaper

Oh Grey's, the way to educate people on the symptoms of heart attacks isn't to give your fandom a heart attack!

We can all breathe a collective sigh of relief. An indie cover of "Chasing Cars" or "How to Save A Life" didn't start playing and Dr. Miranda Bailey lived to see another day. It was a close call though.

If you learned anything from Grey's Anatomy Season 14 Episode 11, you learned the importance of advocating for yourself. 

After 14 seasons, we were finally gifted with some background on Miranda Bailey.

Grey's Anatomy has fully embraced bottle episodes that focus on one particular character and a couple of supporting characters, and why shouldn't they? Those were the best installments from Grey's Anatomy Season 13, and when it's regarding a character who has been on the show since the very beginning, it's all the better. 

This hour was inspired by someone working on the show's very own experience,
