USA’s ‘Queen of the South’ Casts Ryan O’Nan in Season 2 (Exclusive)

21 minutes ago

USA drug cartel drama “Queen of the South” has added actor and writer Ryan O’Nan, both as a cast member and a story editor, in Season 2. O’Nan will recur in multiple episodes as King George, a high-rolling Texas weed smuggler who will help Teresa Mendoza (Alice Braga) and Camila Vargas (Veronica Falcon) build their empire. He is described as eccentric, ruthless, lethal and unpredictable — laughing with you one moment, and gutting you like a fish the next, a loose cannon who is as slippery as an eel. Additionally, O’Nan, who last wrote on Season 1 of FX’s X-Men series. »

Why ‘Moonlight’ Oscar Win Resonates Far Beyond Hollywood (Guest Blog)

31 minutes ago

When “Moonlight” finally received its Oscar for Best Picture Sunday night, it was an amazing win for more than the movie’s director, Barry Jenkins, or producers Adele Romanski, Dede Gardner and Jeremy Kleiner. While each artist involved rightly deserved to be commended for their tremendous talent, the film’s triumph also gave voice to so many members of the Lgbtqi community who are rarely depicted as positive subjects on film, much less recognized by the Academy. “Moonlight” gives us what we so rarely receive from media portrayals of black men: deep abiding intimacy and the challenges of wrestling with the demands of. »

54 minutes ago

Comcast is a massive media conglomerate that owns content producing assets ranging from Universal Studios to NBC to Telemundo. But CEO Brian Roberts spent a good part of his Q&A session at a Monday investor conference talking about — and demonstrating — how the company’s hit set-top box has made it easier to watch Netflix and YouTube. That’s what TV customers want today, Roberts said, and Comcast is prepared to deliver. “We’ve been using X1 to change your experience and merge streaming and traditional television and on-demand,” he said at the Morgan Stanley Technology, Media & Telecom Conference in San Francisco. »

Why Trump’s Skipping White House Correspondents Dinner: They ‘Make Stories Up’

1 hour ago

Donald Trump says he’s skipping this year’s White House Correspondents Dinner because its members “make stories up.” “Over the years you make a mistake, I fully understand when they hit you,” Trump said in an interview with “Fox & Friends” scheduled to air Tuesday morning. “But when they make stories up, when they create sources, ’cause I believe that sometimes they don’t have sources, you know, the sources don’t exist.” “I do believe that a lot of the sources are made up,” he added. “A lot of the stories are made up.

State Department Deletes Tweet Congratulating Iranian Director for Oscar Win

1 hour ago

In an unexpectedly conciliatory move, last night during the 89th annual Academy Awards, someone manning the U.S. State Department’s official Persian-language Twitter account congratulated Iranian director Asghar Farhadi, and the Iranian people, after his film “The Salesman” won the Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film. Then they deleted the tweet. So did rogue State Department staffers use Twitter to send a subtle rebuttal Donald Trump’s way during the Oscars? Or was it a simple mistake?

‘The Freedom to Marry’ Review: Meet the Attorneys Who Fought for Marriage Equality

1 hour ago

Eddie Rosenstein’s documentary “The Freedom to Marry” can be seen as a feel-good movie for a feel-bad time. It documents the struggle for gay people to marry as viewed mainly through the story of Evan Wolfson, an attorney who has made marriage equality his life’s work. This is a glib film that moves very fast through time — and it begins badly — but, as they say, it gets better. Or somewhat better. “The Freedom to Marry” was actually the title of the organization that Wolfson founded to advance marriage equality. We see him at his office in 2015 during the. »

See the Backstage Oscar Photo PwC Man Tweeted Just Before Handing Out Wrong Envelope (Photo)

2 hours ago

Brian Cullinan, PwC partner and leader of the accounting firm’s Oscar team for four years, has been identified as the lead culprit behind the biggest screw-up in Oscar history. And it’s come to light that he tweeted a backstage photo of Emma Stone, newly-minted Oscar winner for “La La Land,” just moments before handing the wrong envelope to Best Picture presenters Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway. Dunaway notoriously read “La La Land” from the Best Actress card she had mistakenly been handed, instead of the actual winner, “Moonlight,” from the envelope that was still backstage with Cullinan.

‘When We Rise’ Is ‘Appallingly Timely,’ Says Gay Rights Activist Cleve Jones

2 hours ago

Cleve Jones has seen a lot. In the early 1970s he fought alongside gay-rights activist and politician Harvey Milk. In the 1980s, he turned to the AIDS crisis as the founder of both the San Francisco AIDS Foundation and the iconic Names Project AIDS Memorial Quilt. And now, he says, it’s time for another fight, one against President Donald Trump. That fight, Jones told TheWrap, has given a newfound urgency to ABC’s new mini-series, “When We Rise,” which premieres tonight and is largely based on Jones’ memoir of the same name. It chronicles five decades of the gay liberation movement. »

Trump Makes Oscar Fiasco All About Him: ‘So Focused on Politics, They Didn’t Get Their Act Together’

4 hours ago

Looks like President Trump did indeed watch the Academy Awards — or, at least, he didn’t miss the blanket coverage of a massive blunder that erroneously named “La La Land” the Best Picture over “Moonlight.” In a chat with conservative website Breitbart, formerly edited by his current senior advisor Steve Bannon, the president criticized the show for being too political. “I think they were focused so hard on politics that they didn’t get the act together at the end,” Trump said.

4 hours ago

Former President George W. Bush rarely criticized his successor Barack Obama, but it took less than six weeks for him to call out Donald Trump. Bush often maintained that he had too much respect for the job to criticize a sitting president, but that didn’t hold him back from attacking Trump during an appearance on NBC’s “Today” show Monday morning. Bush said “we all need answers” on the extent of contact between Trump’s team and the Russian government, and also disagreed with Trump’s on-going theory that the media is the “opposition party.” Also Read: George W.
