Jennifer Lawrence in a long, red dress at the Oscars Jennifer Lawrence at the Academy Awards Stunning in a red dress, Jennifer Lawrence arrives at the 2011 Academy Awards held on Feb. 27 at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood. Lawrence was a first-time Best Actress Oscar nominee for her first major film role: a near-destitute, young Ozark woman looking for her missing drug-dealing father in Winter's Bone, Debra Granik's generally well-received indie drama. Winter's Bone also earned nominations for Best Picture, Best Supporting Actor (John Hawkes), and Best Adapted Screenplay (Debra Granik and Anne Rosellini; based on the novel by Daniel Woodrell). Jennifer Lawrence's competitors in the Best Actress Oscar race were: Annette Bening for Lisa Cholodenko's The Kids Are All Right. Michelle Williams for Derek Cianfrance's Blue Valentine. Nicole Kidman for John Cameron Mitchell's Rabbit Hole. Natalie Portman, the eventual winner, for Darren Aronofsky's Black Swan. »

Whenever Taylor Swift is caught stepping out of the gym (as seen above), she looks so suspiciously put together that the rest of us gym rats—the ones that emerge all sweaty faced and flat-haired—are left to question, "What is she Really doing in there?" Maybe her ballet studio is actually used for afternoon tea? Or could her gym house a private makeup studio and blowdry bar? Perhaps we'll never know, but in the meantime, all we're nothing if not inspired to step up our post-gym game so we, too, can step out with every hair in place. So we enlisted the help of Laini Reeves, a celebrity hairstylist who has styled Kate Bosworth and Michelle Williams, to learn a few new styling tricks when »
Over the course of film history, we've seen plenty of long-time actors step behind the camera to take up their directorial ambitions. Clint Eastwood did it. Mel Gibson did it. George Clooney did it. What do these three have in commonc Well, for starters, they are all men, so there's that. Further, they are all white, but more on that later. More to the point of the article, these men all eased into their directorial careers by starring in their respective debuts, using their presence on screen to help market their talents off it. And with his feature directorial effort The Water Diviner, which hits limited theaters this week, Russell Crowe is just the most recent addition to a growing list of actors who have decided to try their hand behind the camera. Like Eastwood, Gibson, and Clooney before him, the Best Actor winner stars in his first feature as director, »

Gone, but certainly not forgotten. More than seven years after Heath Ledger's tragic death, his sister Kate Ledger is speaking out and updating fans on his daughter Matilda. As it turns out, Michelle Williams remains a hands-on parent that receives praise from many of Heath's immediate family. "Michelle really does keep things real for her," Kate told the Sunday Telegraph via The Daily Mail. " And her existence, although different from most, is as normal as possible in an abnormal world." When Heath passed away in 2008, Matilda was just two years old. Because of her young age, some may wonder how much she remembers about her famous father. Luckily, Kate is happy to »
Michelle Williams is startling with tousled blonde hair in a new photo spread in the UK edition of Elle magazine that celebrates bright spring colors. Williams has a new movie on the way about forbidden love in World War II. The film, “Suite française,” is her first since 2013’s “Oz the Great and Powerful,” a Disney blockbuster that was atypical for her career. Williams, 34, has always favored smaller indie productions like 2005’s “Brokeback Mountain,” 2010’s “Blue Valentine” and 2011’s “My Week with Marilyn.” ...Read More »

If you grew up in the ’90s, you probably remember the popular television series Dawson’s Creek, which premiered on January 20, 1998 on the now defunct WB network. Dawson’s Creek helped pave the way for young adult dramas. Had the series not been successful, we may not have had the pleasure of watching series like One Tree Hill, The Vampire Diaries, or The O.C. The drama, which starred James Van Der Beek, Katie Holmes, Joshua Jackson, and Michelle Williams, aired for six seasons, totaling 128 episodes. Though the series has been off the air for almost 12 years, the cast continues to be in high demand. James Van Der Beek is currently starring on the new hit series CSI: Cyber, while Joshua Jackson will be back forSseason 2 of The Affair later this year. Katie Holmes is slated to appear in the third season of Ray Donovan this summer, and Michelle Williams is currently filming two movies. »

After having robust box office numbers this past weekend and being praised by both audiences and critics, Woman In Gold opens in wide release this Friday, April 10. In his review, Jim Batts says, “Woman In Gold concerns a celebrated work of art, but it’s also about two inspiring lives also worthy of celebration.” Read his review here.
Woman In Gold is the remarkable true story of one woman’s journey to reclaim her heritage and seek justice for what happened to her family. Sixty years after she fled Vienna during World War II, an elderly Jewish woman, Maria Altmann (Mirren), starts her journey to retrieve family possessions seized by the Nazis, among them Klimt’s famous painting ‘Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer I’. Together with her inexperienced but plucky young lawyer Randy Schoenberg (Reynolds), she embarks upon a major battle which takes them all the way to the heart of »

When Hollywood merges with Broadway, there are always fender-benders.
Just ask Harvey Weinstein.
As the movie aficionado and awards maven steered “Finding Neverland,” his first venture as a lead theater producer, toward the Great White Way, eyebrows raised in his wake.
He switched press agents. He swapped out the lead actors. He entirely scrapped an earlier version of the musical with a different creative team. When in spring 2014, he landed a much-coveted spot for the show on the Tony Awards telecast, naysayers tut-tutted that the play hadn’t even begun performances out of town, much less confirmed its Broadway run. Besides, Jennifer Hudson, the star of the Tonys segment, wouldn’t even be appearing in the actual stage production.
“I was criticized for Jennifer,” Weinstein recalls. “But this song (‘Neverland’) has been downloaded a million times, and all over the world people now know ‘Finding Neverland.’ In the movie business, »

Will somebody second a motion to extend Season 8 of The Voice through the Fourth of July?
No, this is not a damning commentary about NBC’s summer programming plans (or the violent allergic reaction I have to America’s Got Talent).
It’s just that Night 1 of the Season 8 Live Playoffs — featuring the 10 singers who collectively make up Teams Blake and Pharrell — was so indisputably terrific that it seems a damn shame a full 20 percent of ’em are fated to receive the Marie Antoinette treatment on Wednesday’s results telecast. »
Destiny's Child reunited at the Stellar Awards in Las Vegas recently, and in case you weren't in the room to see their performance, the video is now available! Beyoncé and Kelly Rowland joined Michelle Williams on stage for a rendition of her 2014 spiritual song, "Say Yes," which her two former groupmates were featured on. They nail it, and their energy is infectious. Everyone in the audience is having a rousing time, and it's likely because they're witnessing history. Does this mean we're one step closer to a reunion tour? Probably not, but at least we can watch this over and over. Here's the original video: »
On Saturday, former Destiny's Child member Kelly Rowland posted another clip of the beloved trio's brief reunion at the Stellar Awards, where she and Beyoncé joined Michelle Williams onstage to perform Williams's "Say Yes." The video's visual and aural quality is infinitely better than that of last week's fan footage of the same performance — you can actually see their faces in this one. They sound great and their harmony is tight, with Rowland nailing her alto part and Beyoncé ... well, being pretty much perfect. You'd never guess that the group has been (mostly) disbanded for eight years. (Still no reunion tour, sadly.) You can see more on TV One's Sunday evening broadcast of the ceremony. »

Kristen Stewart, 'Camp X-Ray' star, to join cast of 'Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk' Kristen Stewart to join 'Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk' movie After putting away her Bella Swan wig and red (formerly brown) contact lenses, Kristen Stewart has been making a number of interesting career choices. Here are three examples: Stewart was a U.S. soldier who befriends an inmate (Peyman Moaadi) at the American Gulag, Guantanamo, in Peter Sattler's little-seen (at least in theaters) Camp X-Ray. She was one of Best Actress Oscar winner Julianne Moore's daughters in Wash Westmoreland and the recently deceased Richard Glatzer's Alzheimer's drama Still Alice. She was the personal assistant to troubled, aging actress Juliette Binoche in Olivier Assayas' Clouds of Sils Maria, which earned her a history-making Best Supporting Actress César.

The sun is a-shining. This—at its most basic level—means you have no better excuse than to splurge on a pair of new of sunglasses. But before you spend a fortune on stunners that leave indentations on your cheeks or fall off your face, let's be certain these new shades actually flatter. If you have a round face… your visage is on the fuller side. Angular features or jawline corners are not too apparent. Your baby face is a lifetime gift (it helps you look younger), and be rest assured that you're in good company with sophisticated celebs including Ginnifer Goodwin and Michelle Williams. Opt for geometric shapes to accentuate lines and elongate your face. Horizontal frames and rectangular »
