Nasty Women Unite: Tribeca and Chanel Bring Together Female Filmmakers Against Donald Trump

25 October 2016 3:18 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

No one said the name “Donald Trump” at the annual Through Her Lens: The Tribeca Chanel Women’s Filmmaker Program kickoff luncheon, held this afternoon at New York City’s Locanda Verde restaurant. But they didn’t need to. As Jane Rosenthal, the Executive Chair of Tribeca Enterprises (and co-founder of the Tribeca Film Festival) greeted the crowd with an enthusiastic cry for her fellow “nasty ladies!” to welcome each other, it was clear that the group, composed of leading female actresses, directors, writers, producers, casting directors and costume designers, was already on the same page.

Now in its second year, the Through Her Lens program is a three-day workshop that “aims to balance industry support, artistic development and funding for new and emerging U.S.-based female writers and directors of short-form narrative films.” This year’s group consists of five filmmakers, who will each pitch their project to »

“Hello all you nasty women,” Tribeca Productions co-founder Jane Rosenthal exclaimed at the Tribeca Chanel Women’s Filmmaker Program luncheon, which took place at Locanda Verde in New York City on Tuesday.

The nearly all-female crowd, which included Katie HolmesMamie GummerEmily Mortimer, Sienna Miller and Zosia Mamet, roared their approval to the Hillary Clinton reference. And with election night quickly approaching, the event’s speeches were sprinkled with political overtones. Rosenthal continued: “In two weeks today I hope we break through the biggest glass ceiling.”

Attendee Mary Lambert, who coincidentally directed the now infamous “Nasty” video by Janet Jackson, was thrilled with what’s happened to “nasty woman” since Donald Trump uttered the phrase at the third debate. “It was so much fun to see it appropriated in that way and to take a negative and turn it into a positive and make fun of the person who said it, »

The CW at 10: How the Network Found Its Footing With Superheroes & Strong Women

23 September 2016 10:15 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

In early 2013, CW executives convened for a post-mortem on the quick demise of “Emily Owens, M.D.” Together, CW president Mark Pedowitz and core members of his team pored over ratings, reviews, and other data that had been gathered in an effort to figure out why the drama series didn’t resonate with its audience.

After a long and candid discussion, the group reached what Pedowitz now calls “the ‘Emily Owens’ moment.” It forced them to come to grips with what the CW should and shouldn’t be doing with its precious programming dollars.

Emily Owens, M.D.” starred Mamie Gummer as a recent med school grad navigating her internship at a large hospital. It had a case-of-the-week-format, and it was taken off life support after 13 episodes.

“I thought it was a pretty good show — down the middle, but well done,” Pedowitz says. “What we learned the hard way was, nobody »

Thank you for being here today and for 15 years, ‘Princess Diaries’

3 August 2016 6:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

For over six decades, Disney has been igniting in little girls the dream of being a princess. Then, in 2001, with the help of Julie Andrews and Anne Hathaway, the House of Mouse showed us that wearing the tiara is not all it’s cracked up to be. The Princess Diaries opened in theaters 15 years ago today. Hathaway’s Mia Thermopiles learns just what kind of pressure and responsibility is involved with being princess when she learns she’s the heir to the crown of Genovia. “I don’t want to run my own country. I just want to pass 10th grade,” she moans. It was the film debut of Anne Hathaway, who has since become Hollywood royalty herself, earning an Oscar for Les Misérables and nabbing coveted roles like Catwoman in Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises. The Princess Diaries gave us Anne Hathaway, and it also gave us »

Review: ‘Mr. Robot’ Season 2 Premiere, ‘Unm4Sk.tc,’  Finds New Ways to fsociety

13 July 2016 9:01 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Spoiler-free Review: ‘Mr. Robot’ Season 2 Stays True to Its Weird Self

Last year, the debut season of “Mr. Robot” dominated the television conversation, but serialized television is still a “what have you done for me lately?” enterprise, and a great beginning only leads to heightened expectations for season two. The two-hour premiere does a brisk job of re-setting the pieces on the board and introducing new ones. Eliot, still missing three days of memory during which the Five/Nine hack shook the world’s financial stability, has gone home to live with his mother; he stays away from all computers and lives a strictly regimented life that is designed to keep Mr. Robot from causing any more trouble. Darlene is running fsociety actions, although she despairs that they’re only making things worse. Angela is ensconced in her new Evil Corp PR job, although it seems to be killing her soul. »

‘The Good Wife’ Finale Review: Alicia Revisits Her Past, Faces Ambiguous Future

8 May 2016 8:27 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Don’t read on unless you’ve seen “End,” the series finale of the CBS drama “The Good Wife.”

You almost had me, “Good Wife” finale, right until the end. I have some very mixed emotions about that last sequence.

The good: It was satisfying that Alicia, in a scene that echoed a key moment from the show’s very first episode, did not take Peter’s hand at the end of his press conference. She left him hanging, which was only right, given that she was about to start a new life. She held his hand walking into that room, but after that, they were done. She’d done all the Peter Florrick hand-holding, literal and figurative, she was ever going to do. About time she set off on her own.

Intellectually, I suppose you can make the case that it made sense for her not to find Jason in that hallway. »

Goodbye to The Good Wife: Look Back at the Show's 12 Best Guest Stars

8 May 2016 7:15 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

The series finale of The Good Wife is upon us. What's the best way to say goodbye to a show we've loved for seven dramatic, captivating and fantastic seasons? A celebration of our favorite guest stars, to start. This was not an easy task. One of the show's many gifts was the strength of its award-winning, critically acclaimed guest actors and we loved almost all of them (*cough* Kalinda's estranged husband *cough*) but decided to go with our all-time favorites, of which there are 12. Did we mention this list was tough to narrow down? Well, it's even tougher to rank »

Goodbye to 'The Good Wife,' whose heroine only let you see what she wanted you to

3 May 2016 9:30 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Midway through the penultimate episode of The Good Wife, Julianna Margulies' Alicia Florrick is presented with evidence of yet another one of her husband Peter's infidelities. Alicia, who's long been secretly estranged from Peter, is unfazed by the news, viewing it simply as useful to his defense in a corruption trial, until she notices that the man who brought it to her — rival lawyer Louis Canning (Michael J. Fox) — seems disappointed by her lack of emotion. "Were you wanting me to cry, Mr. Canning?" she asks, before screwing her face up like Lucille Ball's and pretending to sob as she wails, "Oh my god, I thought my husband no longer cheated!" As Alicia's expression reverts to its familiar blankness, an impressed Canning admits, "God, I love you." "I know," Alicia replies. That moment was striking not only because it was one of the few genuinely entertaining moments in »
