Tonys Actress Roundtable: 6 of Broadway's Leading Ladies on Losing Themsleves in Characters, Avoiding Germs, Hating Cell Phones (Podcast)

11 May 2015 7:29 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

On May 5, The Hollywood Reporter gathered six women who are giving — or, in one case, gave — extraordinary performances on Broadway this season, and who have been Tony-nominated accordingly, for our second annual Tonys Actress Roundtable at Milk Studios in Chelsea. Three are nominated for best actress — Helen Mirren (The Audience), Carey Mulligan (Skylight) and Ruth Wilson (Constellations), all Brits who are known best for their work on screens big and small. And three are nominated for best actress in a musical — Kristin Chenoweth (On the Twentieth Century), Kelli O’Hara (The King and I) and Chita

Time Machine: Best Picture Nominee Co-Star Timberlake on the Oscars' Red Carpet

1 May 2015 7:34 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Justin Timberlake on the Oscars' Red Carpet Justin Timberlake at the Academy Awards The Social Network actor Justin Timberlake arrives at the 83rd Academy Awards, which took place on Sunday, Feb. 27, at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood. At the ceremony, Timberlake and Black Swan actress Mila Kunis introduced the nominees – and eventual winners – in the animation categories. Throughout the proceedings, he pretended to be the elusive Banksy, whose Exit Through the Gift Shop was a Best Documentary Feature contender. The joke fell mostly flat, but Timberlake actually elicited some laughs when he imitated three-time Oscar-nominated veteran Kirk Douglas*, who mercilessly stretched the Best Supporting Actress announcement into what seemed like hours. Admittedly, Douglas was funny. (The winner in that particular category turned out to be Melissa Leo for David O. Russell's The Fighter.) As announced by the Justin Timberlake-Mila Kunis duo, the Best Animated Short Film was Shaun Tan »

Tony Awards: Hollywood Falls for Broadway, But Some Get Tony Cold Shoulder

28 April 2015 1:25 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

While stars Helen Mirren (Peter Morgan's "The Audience"), Bradley Cooper, Alessandro Nivolo and Patricia Clarkson (revival "The Elephant Man"), Bill Nighy and Carey Mulligan (revival "Skylight"), Elisabeth Moss (revival "The Heidi Chronicles"), Ruth Wilson ("Constellation") and Ken Watanabe (musical revival "The King and I") all scored Tony nominations, others were snubbed.  Not adored by awards voters were Harvey Weinstein's much-publicized movie-to-play "Finding Neverland" and Movie stars Jake Gyllenhaal (“Constellations"), Mia Farrow ("Love Letters"), Glenn Close and Bob Balaban  ("A Delicate Balance") and James Earl Jones ("You Can’t Take It With You"). “Doctor Zhivago" and "Honeymoon in Vegas" starring Tony Danza also came up empty-handed, while "Gigi" got one nod, but not best musical revival. Director Bill »

Tony Awards nominations prediction scores: Best performances by our Experts, Editors and Users

28 April 2015 10:55 AM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Congratulations to Wombat988 for a very impressive top score of 95% predicting the Tony Awards nominations on Tuesday. He also had an outstanding point total of 14,386 by using his 500 and 200 point bets wisely. While he wins our contest, the best overall score this year is by one of our Experts: Melissa Bernardo (Entertainment Weekly), who got an astounding 98% correct. In fact, the only thing she missed out of eight categories was one of the nominees as Best Actor in a Musical (she had Peter Gallagher instead of Ken Watanabe). -Break- For our contest champ Wombat988, he was almost absolutely right as well. Like Bernardo, he also missed Watanabe ("The King and I") as Best Actor in a Musical as well as Tony Yazbeck ("On the Town"). In their places, he had Gallagher ("On the Twentieth Century") and Matthew Morrison ("Finding Neverland"). Otherwise, his complete slate was perfect. You can see how »

'An American in Paris, 'Fun Home,' 'Wolf Hall' lead Tony Awards nominations'

28 April 2015 6:15 AM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Two musicals — "An American in Paris" and "Fun Home" — lead with the most bids (12) when Tony Award nominations were announced Tuesday morning. Of the new plays on Broadway, two British imports -- "Wolf Hall Parts 1 and 2" and "Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time" -- reaped eight and six nominations respectively. The revival of the musical "The King and I" picked up nine nods while the remounting of the play "Skylight" claimed seven. (See the full list of nominees here).  -Break- What do you think about the Tony nominations? Have your say in Gold Derby’s message boards A wrinkle in the rules allowed for five (rather than the standard four) nominees in both Play races and Best Musical as they were packed with more than nine contenders. However, the vote tally from the 50 members of the nominating committee was not close enough to merit such increases; last ye. »

Beauty vs Beast: Full Metal Maria

20 April 2015 1:00 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Tis I, Jason from Mnpp, here, with another week's new edition of our "Beauty vs Beast" series. So over the next several days The Film Experience is going to be diving into the cinematic realm of Artificial Intelligence (known as "A.I." to people in a hurry and Haley Joel Osment fans), and to get the ball rolling I figured we'd make ourselves like science-fiction and hop in the way-back machine to the year 1927, when a little chap who went by the name Friedrich Christian Anton Lang, known to his friends as Fritz, made a little movie called Metropolis. In case you don't know the story, it goes like this: Boy meets Girl, Girl Gets Clones Into Evil Robot, Dystopian Nightmare Explodes, and a Kiss, The End. Somewhere in there dancing happens, and it is crazy awesome.

But thanks to a ferocious performance from actress Brigitte Helm you really couldn't get »

The 65th Annual Outer Critics Circle Nominees

20 April 2015 10:51 AM, PDT | | See recent Backstage news »

Outer Critics Circle, the organization of writers and publications covering NYC theater outside NYC, honored the finest talent on and off Broadway with the announcement of this year’s nominees. Led by Broadway stars Raúl Esparza and Katie Finneran, the announcement ceremony took place at Manhattan’s Friars Club. Winners in all 24 categories will be announced on May 11, and the 65th annual Gala Awards Dinner will be held at Sardi’s Restaurant on May 21. New musical “Something Rotten!” led the pack with 12 nominations, followed by “On the Twentieth Century,” “An American in Paris,” and “Wolf Hall.” Because “Disgraced,” “Fun Home,” and “Hand to God” received nominations in previous seasons, those productions were not under consideration this year. Acting nominees include Bradley Cooper, Patricia Clarkson, and Alessandro Nivola for “The Elephant Man,” Elisabeth Moss and Bryce Pinkham for “The Heidi Chronicles,” Ben Miles for “Wolf Hall,” Kelli O’Hara and Ruthie »

‘The King and I’ Theater Review: Ken Watanabe and Kelli O’Hara Make a Royal Pairing

16 April 2015 7:00 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

It has been seven years since Lincoln Center Theater presented Bartlett Sher’s definitive staging of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s “South Pacific.” Now comes Sher’s take on “The King and I,” which opened Thursday at the Vivian Beaumont Theater in New York, and while it’s a less demanding work than “South Pacific,” Sher once again reveals the musical’s own enormous qualities without imposing an arbitrary interpretation. This is not always the case with Sher’s direction next door at the Metropolitan Opera, where his productions (especially his “Tales of Hoffmann” and “Le comte Ory” ) can come off fussy and unfocused. »

Tonys Best Musical Actress battle: Kelli O'Hara vs. Chita Rivera vs. Kristen Chenoweth'

7 April 2015 1:38 AM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

The hottest category for this year’s Tony Awards will probably be Best Musical Actress with a three-way battle for the prize. The trio of top musical ladies consists of Kelli O'Hara for “The King and I,” Chita Rivera for “The Visit” and Kristin Chenoweth for “On the Twentieth Century,” -Break- Chenoweth is a previous winner, having taken a 1999 Featured Musical Actress Tony for her breakout performance in the revival of “You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown,” but she’s never won in lead (Her only other nomination was for “Wicked” which she lost to her co-star Idina Menzel.) She delivers an absolutely amazing performance as Lily Garland, the magnificently narcissistic film star. (Madeline Kahn was nominated for the 1978 original, but she left the production soon after the opening due to conflicts with director Harold Prince and she lost to Liza Minnelli for “...' »

Remembering Sidney Lumet

1 April 2015 4:42 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Interview | See recent The Hollywood Interview news »

April 9th will mark the four year anniversary of director Sidney Lumet's passing, at age 86. Lumet was the first director I interviewed whose one-sheet posters hung on my wall as a kid. He was an idol, an icon, and an inspiration. I wasn't yet 30 in April 1997, when I met him at The Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills for our interview at the press junket for "Night Falls On Manhattan," one of his solid, authentic urban dramas that blended crime, politics and personal revelations that became his signature.

Lumet immediately put any butterflies I had at ease. Diminutive, but with the infectious energy of a teenager, his was a disarming presence. He paid me a compliment on my sportcoat, saying that I looked a bit like the young Mickey Rourke (which I still don't see, but what the hell), then went on to regale me for an hour with »

Tony Awards experts' predictions: 'The King and I' will win Best Musical Revival, '20th Century' could spoil'

30 March 2015 2:24 PM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

In the first wave of predictions from our dozen Tony Awards Experts, eight of them think that the fourth remounting of Rodgers and Hammerstein's "The King and I" will win Best Musical Revival when these awards are handed out on June 7. Three of them are touting the first rialto restaging of "On the Twentieth Century" while one supports the third revival of "On the Town." Nominations for the 69th annual edition of these kudos will be announced on April 28.  -Break- Predicting "The King and I," which won Best Musical in 1952 and this award in 1996, to prevail are: Jason Clark (Entertainment Weekly), Thom Geier, Harry Haun (Playbill), Michael Musto ( and all three of us -- Tom O'Neil, David Sheward and me -- here at Gold Derby. That support gives it leading odds of 6/5. Those backing "On the Twentieth Century," which lost its 1978 bid »

Wright Minibio Pt.2: Hitchcock Heroine in His Favorite Movie

6 March 2015 8:28 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Teresa Wright in 'Shadow of a Doubt': Alfred Hitchcock heroine (image: Joseph Cotten about to strangle Teresa Wright in 'Shadow of a Doubt') (See preceding article: "Teresa Wright Movies: Actress Made Oscar History.") After scoring with The Little Foxes, Mrs. Miniver, and The Pride of the Yankees, Teresa Wright was loaned to Universal – once initial choices Joan Fontaine and Olivia de Havilland became unavailable – to play the small-town heroine in Alfred Hitchcock's Shadow of a Doubt. (Check out video below: Teresa Wright reminiscing about the making of Shadow of a Doubt.) Co-written by Thornton Wilder, whose Our Town had provided Wright with her first chance on Broadway and who had suggested her to Hitchcock; Meet Me in St. Louis and Junior Miss author Sally Benson; and Hitchcock's wife, Alma Reville, Shadow of a Doubt was based on "Uncle Charlie," a story outline by Gordon McDonell – itself based on actual events. »

Tony Awards preview: What is ahead for Best Musical Revival?

4 March 2015 3:10 PM, PST | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

There are only five shows in contention for Best Musical Revial at this year's Tony Awards. Just one is running (“On the Town”); one has closed (“Side Show”); and three are in or about to start previews (“On the Twentieth Century,” “Gigi,” “The King and I”). -Break- Tony Awards preview: What is ahead for Best Musical? Advance buzz is strongest for “The King and I” from Lincoln Center Theater since its director Barlett Sher previously won a Tony for the Lct production of “South Pacific” which was captured a Tony for Best Musical Revival. In addition, Kelli O'Hara who collected one of her five Tony nominations for “Pacific,” will be headlining “King” opposite Oscar nominee Ken Wantanabe (“The Last Warrior”). This is the fifth Broadway production of the beloved Rodgers and Hammerstein classic and the last one, produced in 1996 and starring Don »

Brackett and Wilder Screenwriting Efforts: From Garbo to Swanson

10 February 2015 11:45 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Billy Wilder and Charles Brackett movies (See previous post: "The Charles Brackett Diaries: Billy Wilder and Hollywood in the '30s and '40s.") Below is a list of movies on which Charles Brackett and Billy Wilder worked together as screenwriters, including efforts for which they did not receive screen credit. The Wilder-Brackett screenwriting partnership lasted from 1938 to 1949. During that time, they shared two Academy Awards for their work on The Lost Weekend (1945) and, with D.M. Marshman Jr., Sunset Blvd. (1950). Billy Wilder would later join forces with screenwriter I.A.L. Diamond in movies such as Some Like It Hot, The Apartment, and One, Two, Three. However well-received, Wilder's later films generally lacked the sophistication and subtlety found in his earlier work with Brackett. Charles Brackett, for his part, became associated with 20th Century-Fox, working as a producer-screenwriter. His Fox films, though frequently popular and at times applauded by critics, were decidedly made-to-order, »

Interview with Author Slide: Was There a 'Sunset Blvd.' Auteur?

10 February 2015 11:44 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Billy Wilder screenwriter-producer partner Charles Brackett remembered: Q&A with film historian Anthony Slide (photo: Charles Brackett ca. early 1940s) Six-time Academy Award winner Billy Wilder is a film legend. He's renowned for classics such as The Major and the Minor, Sunset Blvd., Some Like It Hot, and The Apartment. The fact that Wilder was not the sole creator of these movies is all but irrelevant to graduates from the Auteur School of Film History. Wilder directed, co-wrote, and at times produced his films. That should suffice. For auteurists, perhaps. But not for those interested in film history facts. That's why the Charles Brackett diaries offer such a refreshing glimpse into his and Billy Wilder's moviemaking process. Now, Charles who? Oscar winner Charles Brackett Charles Brackett (1892-1969) just happens to be the – largely forgotten – guy who co-created with Billy Wilder (and, at times, with a third screenwriting partner) classics »

Martin Scorsese's Silence Has Lost One Of Its Stars

5 January 2015 7:45 PM, PST | | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Since 1991, Martin Scorsese has been trying to make his passion project Silence into a reality. Unfortunately for the project, but fortunately for the public, the delay between the film's original inception and its current summer shoot dates has been due to a ton of great films coming across the acclaimed director's desk. With the film as an active priority for Scorsese, and with a cast set to go, some would say this is the perfect time for another snag to occur. And looks like they're right, as Silence has lost a rather prestigious cast member. Deadline announced that Ken Watanabe has unfortunately backed out of his role as interpreter to Andrew Garfield and Adam Driver's priest characters. The report cites that Watanabe's schedule wouldn't allow him to make this summer's shooting window in Taiwan, as he'll be performing The King And I on Broadway at the same time. If »
