Cannes Lions: Gabourey Sidibe Talks Diversity, Directing

13 hours ago | The Hollywood Reporter - TV News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - TV News news »

Several panels at Cannes Lions – the ad world’s annual Cannes confab – have discussed women in the industry, so much so that Gabourey Sidibe said the all the talk risks seeming like a trend without concrete action. 

“We’ve been talking about it so much it seems like a fad, which is strange because women have been on the planet just as long as men,” she said, joking: “It turns out even if you believe in Adam and Eve, Adam was nothing until Eve came along – stupid man didn’t even know he was naked.”

“World’s End” – ABC, 10:00 p.m.

Synopsis: In the Season 4 finale, Ghost Rider emerges suddenly and Coulson and the team attempt to stop Aida from ending the world.

Would you rather...?

@madonna I ❤️you. No other caption needed

A post shared by Sarah Paulson (@mssarahcatharinepaulson) on May 2, 2017 at 11:48am Pdt

 

I can't ask a 'would you rather' with Sarah Paulson spotting Madonna at the Met Gala as an option because it would win in a landslide. Obviously anyone in their right mind would choose that.

So you get a second option.

Would you rather:

...eat a watermelon with Lindsay Lohan?

...have a wrap party with Daniel Wu?

...hang out in Uma Thurman's trailer?

...paint on/with (?) Ronnie Kroell?

...recover from jet lag with Alan Cumming?

... "walk" dogs with Doona Bae?

... or museum it with Gabby Sidibe?

Funny enough, Sidibe, who just directed her first short film, says she was warned that her past would be a "scandal" when Precious came out.

"There was this whole thing," she said. "[But] I went looking for the job. It's not like I fell and tripped, like I was some naive little girl. I went looking »

Writers Guild Negotiations: For Talk Shows Trying to Plan the Next Few Weeks, The Possibility of a Strike Made It Tough

1 May 2017 8:11 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

The show must go on – until a strike is officially called. [Update — No strike!]

That was the word from inside TV’s late night talk shows and series, which continued to operate, business as usual, even as the possibility of a work stoppage on May 2 loomed large.

That has meant continuing to book guests, produce taped packages and plan for series road trips – all of which might not happen should the Writers Guild negotiating committee call for a strike.

“We’ll see what happens and take it from there,” said “The Late Late Show with James Corden” executive producer Ben Winston. ” We support the writers, we hope the strike doesn’t happen, because we want to carry on working and making a show. It’s concern for us. I think any decision on what we do, we’ll wait and hope it doesn’t happen and hope that everything works out.”
