Fashion Designer Oscar de la Renta Dies at 82

20 October 2014 6:32 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Legendary fashion designer Oscar de la Renta, who dressed generations of celebrities in red carpet and evening gowns, has died after battling cancer at 82.

In the early 1960s, he came to fame dressing Jackie Kennedy, and founded an influential New York fashion house. Among the actresses who appreciated his glamorous red carpet gowns were Audrey Hepburn, Cameron Diaz, Nicole Kidman, Oprah Winfrey, Kristen Stewart, Penelope Cruz and Jessica Chastain. One of his most recent commissions was Amal Clooney’s wedding dress.

His name was so synonymous with high fashion that an entire “Sex and the City” episode was based on the idea of Carrie Bradshaw receiving a knee-length red poufy dress from her boyfriend Aleksandr Petrovsky.

He can also be seen in 2009 documentary “The September Issue,” about the making of Vogue magazine’s huge annual fall edition.

Though his ruffles and slinky satin dresses were undeniably feminine, he told Elle magazine, »

L.M. Kit Carson, Co-Writer of ‘Paris, Texas,’ Dies at 73

8 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Screenwriter and actor L.M. Kit Carson, who adapted Wim Wenders’ “Paris, Texas” and helped Wes Anderson launch his first film “Bottle Rocket,” died Monday after a long illness. He was 73.

Born in Irving, Texas, Carson co-founded the USA Film Festival in Dallas and was married to actress Karen Black, with whom he had a son, Hunter, who starred in “Paris, Texas.” He also wrote the screenplay for the 1983 remake of Jean-Luc Godard’s “Breathless.”

While Anderson and “Bottle Rocket” star Owen Wilson were trying to get the 13-minute short made into a feature, Wilson remembered that it was Carson who gave them some of the most useful advice.

“Kit had the idea for us to try to go to Sundance and then eventually send it to (producer) Barbara Boyle, who sent it to (producers) Polly Platt and Jim Brooks,” said Wilson. With their help, Anderson got the greenlight from Columbia Pictures »

Tatiana Maslany of ‘Orphan Black’ to Star Off Broadway in Neil Labute Premiere

9 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Tatiana Maslany, the critically adored star of BBC America series “Orphan Black,” will make her New York stage debut this spring in the world premiere of Neil Labute’s “The Way We Get By,” starting performances in May at Second Stage Theater.

She’ll topline the two-hander with Thomas Sadoski, the theater alum (“Other Desert Cities”) who’s a regular on HBO’s “The Newsroom,” in a production helmed by Leigh Silverman, nommed for a Tony earlier this year for the Broadway revival of “Violet.”

Maslany has earned a cult of fans playing about a dozen characters, and counting, in “Orphan Black,” the sci-fi saga about cloning. Two years in a row supporters have taken to the Internet to voice their ire over her perceived snubbing by the Emmys.

In “The Way We Get By,” Maslany will play Beth opposite Sadosky’s Doug, two sexual predators who hook up at »

Showtime Mixes Internet Sensation Rachel Bloom With Seasoned Writer for ‘Crazy Ex-Girlfriend’

10 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Showtime couldn’t be happier that you’ve probably never heard of Rachel Bloom, 26, the star of their new half-hour comedy pilot (with songs!), “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend,” about a smart lawyer turned self-deluded stalker. For the premium cabler, the freedom to cast a talented unknown signals its growing success.

“It’s a function of the evolution of our network and brand that we no longer have to put pre-established stars into shows to get people to take us seriously as a place for original programming.” says Showtime president David Nevins. “We have shows that get nominated for awards that critics take seriously: ‘Homeland,’ ‘Ray Donovan,’ ‘Shameless’ and ‘Masters of Sex,’ ” he ticks off quickly.

Clearly, premium cabler’s profile has added luster.

But not just anyone can follow in the footsteps of the household names that have traditionally anchored Showtime’s signature, edgy, female-centric comedies — awards-show magnets like Edie Falco, Laura Linney and Toni Collette. »

StreamFix: 'Catching Fire,' 'Galaxy Quest,' and 8 More Essential Streams on Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, and Crackle

just now | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

StreamFix is your one-stop shop for the web's best streams. Here's the best of Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, and Crackle this week.    Netflix "Galaxy Quest" It's strange that we choose to watch other movies when we can just watch "Galaxy Quest" again and again. The awesome movie puts washed-up TV actors from a cult sci-fi hit (played by Sigourney Weaver, Tim Allen, Tony Shalhoub, and Alan Rickman) into a real-life space adventure. Perfect chemistry for such an offbeat cast. I'd say, "Sigourney Weaver has never been more bad-ass!" but she achieves such heights in pretty much every movie, doesn't she? "Alfie" I'm not much for remakes of Michael Caine's best work (Remember the abysmal "Sleuth" revamp?), but Jude Law actually succeeds here by recreating the debonair man at the heart of the 1966 classic. Susan Sarandon, Marisa Tomei, and Jane Krakowski all pay his conquests here. Oh, Alfie. What's it all about? »

10 minutes ago | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

At just 14-years-old, Benjamin Stockham has already starred in three TV broadcast network TV shows. Fox's “Sons of Tucson” was cancelled after just four episodes. And NBC decided not to renew White House family comedy “1600 Penn” after its first season.

But when it does, it's just spectacular. And. »

Review: 'Marvel's Agents of Shield' - 'A Hen in the Wolf House'

39 minutes ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A review of tonight's "Marvel's Agents of Shield" coming up just as soon as I maintain my cover as Ron Burgundy... Operation: Improve "Agents of Shield" has been working in two fronts this season. The main, and most important one, has been creating more interesting contexts for the pre-existing characters like Coulson, Fitz and Ward. At the same time, the show is introducing a lot of new characters on both the Shield and Hydra side of things. Some are still fairly minor in the scheme of things — Mac's primary function this week is to let Fitz subconsciously ogle his superhuman physique — but on the whole, the show has nicely balanced new and old, so that the show feels densely populated, but not too busy. It helps when you have some excellent actors like Kyle MacLachlan and Adrianne Palicki involved. Palicki's long been a superheroine-in-waiting — one of the worst things about »

Big film projects are not exactly barreling toward Keanu Reeves like a speeding bus.  The actor, who was last seen in Universal Pictures' 2013 flop Ronin 47, told Indiewire that he wishes he would receive more offers from Hollywood studios.

Did Gwen Stefani use her steal on the wrong artist for Tuesday's 'The Voice'?'

54 minutes ago | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

The only coach with a steal remaining on Tuesday's "The Voice" was newcomer Gwen Stefani. Did she make a rookie mistake by stealing the wrong artist? 'The Voice' recap: Battle for the ages (10/13/14) -Break- Battle rounds concluded after four nights over the past two weeks. The other three coaches -- Adam Levine, Blake Shelton, and Pharrell Williams -- had already used up their steals, so that left Stefani with a lot of power. There were only three battles actually seen by the home audience out of six that were conducted (the other three were relegated to montages only). The best of those was for Team Pharrell between Brittany Butler and Ricky Manning on the George Benson classic "On Broadway." Coach/judge Williams chose to keep Manning, but Stefani completely passed on obtaining Butler for her team. The second battle of the evening for Team Blake had him choosing »
