John Oliver Slams Hollywood’s Whitewashing Practices

22 February 2016 7:02 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Sunday night’s episode of John Oliver’s “Last Week Tonight” took aim at Hollywood’s whitewashing epidemic — one week before the 88th Academy Awards.

The scathing, four-minute segment — titled “How Is This Still a Thing?” — highlighted a disturbing practice as old as the industry itself: casting white actors to play non-white characters. While this year’s #OscarsSoWhite controversy, which came to light when the Academy nominated only white actors in the four acting categories for the second year in a row, focused on the lack of recognition and the lack of opportunities for people of color, the “Last Week” segment suggests that the roles are out there, they’re just played by white actors.

“That’s right — Jake Gyllenhaal, a white American with a Swedish last name, was cast to play the ‘Prince of Persia’ from, you know, Persia,” said a voiceover. “And he’s far from alone. Just last year, »

Happy 40th Birthday, ‘Laverne & Shirley’!

27 January 2016 8:00 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

40 years ago today, Penny Marshall and Cindy Williams schlemiel-schlamazeled their way into TV history when “Laverne & Shirley” premiered on ABC. Laverne DeFazio and Shirley Feeney, two roommates who worked as bottle-cappers in Milwaukee, had made their debut on “Happy Days” the November before their own spin-off started airing on January 27, 1976. The zany antics of “Laverne & Shirley” quickly shot to No. 1 in the ratings, even surpassing the viewership of “Happy Days.” Williams departed the show after she became pregnant with her first child. As to why she left instead of scheduling around the birth of her baby, Williams has said, “When it came time for me to sign my contract for that season, they had me working on my due date to have my baby. And I said, ‘You know, I can't sign this.’ And it went back and forth and back and forth and it just never got worked out. »

A Never-Before-Seen Age Difference in this Year’s Best Actress Race

19 January 2016 6:00 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Patrick Shanley

Managing Editor

One of the tightest races in this year’s Oscar season is that for the best actress statuette. There are past winners such as Cate Blanchett, who earned a best actress Oscar for Blue Jasmine in 2014 and a best supporting actress award for The Aviator in 2004, and Jennifer Lawrence, who won best actress in Silver Linings Playbook in 2013, previous nominees like Saoirse Ronan, who earned a best supporting actress nom for Atonement in 2008, and first-time nominees Brie Larson, who plays a young mother held captive in Room, and Charlotte Rampling, who plays a wife whose 45th wedding anniversary is upended by the arrival of a mysterious letter in 45 Years.

The most interesting factoid about this year’s best actress race, however, is the disparity in age between the competitors. Three of the five women are aged 26 years or below, with Ronan at 21, Lawrence at 25, and Larson at 26 while Rampling, »

Our countdown of the 100 best films of the 21st century continues. This is Part 2 #75 through 51.

Click here for Part 1 (#100-76)!

The first decade and a half of the 21st century has brought a lot of changes to the landscape of film. The advancement and sophistication of computers has made realistic computer generated effects a mainstay in both big-budget and small-budget films. The internet and streaming technologies have given big Hollywood new competition in films produced independently and by non-traditional means. We went from purchasing films on yards of tape to plastic disks, and now we can simply upload them to the cloud. Advertisements for films have reached a higher, more ruthless level where generating hype through trailers and teasers is crucial for a film’s commercial success. Movie attendance has fluctuated along with the economy, but that hasn’t stopped films from breaking box office records, including having films gross »
