The Oscar train stops here – Julianne Moore is devastatingly good, and certainly worthy of all the many awards that will certainly come her way, as a linguistics professor succumbing to early-onset Alzheimer’s disease in Still Alice. Moore, who has a number of astonishing acting feats under her belt, has perhaps never been as affecting, nor as raw, as she is in the part of a woman losing the once-formidable control she had over her mind and body.
Alzheimer’s is certainly not an easy topic for any film to cover, let alone to cover well, but Moore, along with writer Lisa Genova and directors Richard Glatzer and Wash Westmoreland, rise to the occasion, crafting a narrative that fully communicates the disease’s creeping horror while never dissolving into cable-tv levels of melodrama. Still Alice is not only a well-made film, but also an important one in how honestly it »

Alzheimer's is a heartbreaking disease, both for the person who has it and his or her loved ones. "Still Alice" stars Julianne Moore as a respected professor who begins experiencing lapses in memory; she's soon diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer's, much to the shock of her family and friends. Alec Baldwin co-stars as her husband John, alongside Kate Bosworth, Kristen Stewart, and Hunter Parrish as their adult children. The screenplay was adapted from the novel by neuroscientist Lisa Genova.
Moore has already scored a SAG nom for her performance as Alice, as well as Best Actress at the Gotham Independent Film Awards. We've got months of awards season madness ahead of us, which means this is probably just the beginning of "Still Alice."
"Still Alice" is already open for a qualifying Oscar run in limited cities. It opens across the country on January 16.

Sony Pictures Classics has released the first Still Alice trailer from co-directors and co-writers Richard Glatzer and Wash Westmoreland’s adaptation of the Lisa Genova novel. The film stars Julianne Moore as a brilliant linguistics professor struggling with early onset Alzheimer's Disease, and it has gathered a huge amount of awards buzz since it premiered at Tiff back in September; Moore emerged as a front runner in the Best Actress category when Sony Pictures Classics quickly released the film in time for an awards qualifying run. Still Alice looks absolutely devastating, and no doubt an actress of Moore's caliber can do the heart-wrenching material justice. Moore has been nominated for an Oscar four times now (for her work in Boogie Nights, The Hours, Far From Heaven, and The End of the Affair), and as she's long been one of Hollywood's finest working actresses, it would be an absolute thrill to »

Julianne Moore has been garnering Oscar buzz for her performance in Still Alice ever since the film debuted at the Toronto International Film Festival, where it was quickly acquired by Sony Pictures Classics. The studio has released the first trailer for this upcoming drama, which opened in limited release last weekend before expanding nationwide on January 16, 2016.

Hunter Parrish is officially off the market! The Weeds actor is engaged to his girlfriend Kathryn Wahl, his rep confirms to Us Weekly. The actor, who is currently starring opposite Julianne Moore in Still Alice and has a recurring role on the upcoming season of The Following, popped the question on Saturday, Dec. 6.

In the end, our bodies betray us. Most aren’t fortunate enough to go out on their own terms, but some are dealt a crueler fate than others. While most films treat Alzheimer’s disease with overwrought melodrama and naïveté, Still Alice stares unflinchingly into the abyss. Bolstered by a haunting performance from Julianne Moore and the focused storytelling of filmmakers Richard Glatzer and Wash Westmoreland, this film has the raw power to simultaneously crush and rejuvenate your spirit. Painful, required viewing for life’s brutal training ground.
The power of film is that, unlike real life, it allows us to see the beginning of the end. For Dr. Alice Howland (Moore), her precipitous decline begins with a harmless memory gaffe at her 50th birthday party. Alice, a heralded linguistics researcher at Columbia University, is the model of self-control. »

Ealy has been cast as a “brilliant, chameleon-like” murderer who’ll test Ryan Hardy’s limits, TVLine has learned.
Alice Howland (Julianne Moore) is a beautiful, intelligent, respected, accomplished linguistics professor, but she’s also starting to forget things. Nothing big – a name or where she put something. As an academic with an insatiable desire to learn and teach, plus a bustling family who still look to her for advice and guidance, it’s not surprising that Alice might be a little distracted or overwhelmed from time to time. After she loses her place in a lecture she’s giving a UCLA, Alice decides to take the practical approach and make sure her random moments of forgetfulness are just that, but after consulting with a neurologist (Stephen Kunken) she discovers she’s suffering from the early onset of Alzheimer’s disease. For a woman who has dedicated her life to the study of language and how people communicate with one another the idea of slowly losing her memory is a fate worse than cancer. As »

The whole year, I have been looking for The Oscar season frontrunner for Best Actress. I was hoping Shailene Woodley from "The Fault in Our Stars" would squeak in, but now, the lovely, talented, and ultra-sweet Julianne Moore is the one to beat!
Her double whammy performances for "Map to the Stars" and "Still Alice" solidify that notion. And just this morning, the Palm Springs International Film Festival just called her The best actress of the year! Moore will be receiving the Desert Palm Achievement Award, Actress, at the festival's Awards Gala.
I can't wait! I will be on the red carpet to chat it up with the fantastic Miss Moore! She will be joining the equally talented Eddie Redmayne from "The Theory of Everything" at the gala where the actor is set to receive the Desert Palm Achievement Award, Actor.
Here's the full press release from the Psiff:

Julianne Moore might be the hottest actress in the Oscar race this year, and most voters haven’t even seen her film yet. This four-time Oscar nominee and Emmy winner for Game Change is considered overdue for a win. Still Alice, in which she plays a victim of early-onset Alzheimer’s, offers her a great opportunity to finally take home that statuette, and today the Palm Springs International Film Festival announced that she will receive the Actress prize at this year’s gala on January 3. Eddie Redmayne was previously announced for the fest’s Actor prize, and both are considered front-runners in the Oscar race, so Psiff is just jumping on the bandwagon.
Every precursor award a contender can get just makes them seem more inevitable for the final win. Moore certainly is deserving, and it is looking like her year. In May, she won the Best Actress prize at »

Julianne Moore is looking to get that Oscar. In Still Alice, she plays a character with early onset Alzheimer's. Come on, that is money in the bank right there. The film, which will hit theaters on January 16th (it is getting an Oscar qualifying screening on December 31st), released a new clip featuring Moore and Kristen Stewart, which you can watch below. I am not the biggest Julianne Moore fan. She is one of those people I always see acting, and it bothers me. I am sure she will garner a lot of attention for this performance, but I cannot say I am overly excited to see it. The film, for the sound of it, just feels like total awards bait, and that does not get me pumped for it either. I do like Stewart more than most, so that is something. The film also features Alec Baldwin, Kate Bosworth, »

You take the good, you take the bad, you take them both and there you have… the sure-to-be bittersweet birth of Daisy and Sweets’ son.
Enter Mindy Cohn.
TVLine has learned exclusively that Bones has enlisted the Facts of Life vet to inject some lightness and levity into single-mom Daisy’s delivery as her New Age-focused doula.
The character, Valentina, is into crystals, vibes, and spiritual energy and is adamant that childbirth must be a peaceful and non-traumatic process. She dims the birthing room lights and pipes in bird sounds while Daisy’s in labor because a “peaceful mother makes a happy baby. »
Lies and lesbians reign supreme in this week’s Mindy Project, which finds Dr. Lahiri accidentally almost ending her new boss’ marriage. Thank goodness for Danny, who comes to the rescue with his nearly unbendable moral code, his pumped-up Staten Island accent and his gray, ribbed A-frame tee shirt, size (I’m guessing here) Boys’ Xl.
Elsewhere, Shonda Rhimes loses in beer pong. Intrigued? Read on for the rundown of this week’s episode, “The Devil Wears Lands’ End.”
