This "dream team" has assembled for the film The Post, about the Washington Post's involvement in exposing the Pentagon Papers in 1971. Hanks will play the Washington Post's editor Ben Bradlee while Streep will portray his publisher Kay Graham. Both worked with the New York Times to challenge the federal government in order to publish the classified study about the Vietnam War commissioned by the Defense Department.
Were you not convinced The Post had Oscar potential before that bit of info? Now that you know we have a timely drama similar to Spotlight and All The President's Men on our hands, it is quite obvious why Amblin and Fox decided to fast-track the picture, even though it was just announced last week!

Hanks will portray legendary Washington Post editor Ben Bradlee while Streep will play the newspaper's publisher Kay Graham, the Hollywood Reporter writes.
The film focuses on the Post's battle against the federal government over the right to publish the top-secret documents from Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara's voluminous, warts-and-all account of the Vietnam War.

Just because a movie or a celebrity wins an Oscar, that doesn't mean the win was deserved. While the Academy Awards are seen as the capstone to awards season -- and one of the highest honors in the business -- we all know that stars and movies get snubbed or overlooked all the time.
What's worse is when we look back at what did win, and shake our heads in confusion and disbelief. So, with the 89th Academy Awards just around the corner, let's take a look back over the show's illustrious history at a few times the Academy voters clearly made a mistake.

Who would follow up a tense, real-life political drama with a relaxed Western set in the 1940s? Alan J. Pakula, that's who. Pakula directed All the President's Men, which was released in April 1976, in the thick of the Watergate scandal. The movie received eight Academy Award nominations and won four, including Jason Robards for best supporting actor and William Goldman for best adapted screenplay. Released in October 1978, Comes a Horseman starred James Caan (?!), Jane Fonda and Jason Robards as ranchers in a gorgeous yet unidentified area of the western United States. Circa 1945, Frank 'Butch' Athearn (Caan) and Billy Joe Meynert (Mark Harmon, in the first film role for the former U.S. football player), are military veterans who have bought a small...

This episode of Bones, titled "The Final Chapter: The New Tricks in the Old Dogs," humorously rounds out the first quarter of the final season. Each Bones couple discusses how they feel about having more babies, resulting in Brennan making an uncomfortable demand on her squeamish mate. While these three couples discuss sex as a means of procreation, the case highlights an entirely different outlook on sex as it centers on the very active and intimate romantic relationship of two octogenarians in a retirement community.
As the case is all about a retirement home community, it brings several delightful and distinguished guest stars to the small screen. Those of us who have been around for a handful of decades will appreciate the appearance of the legendary seven-time Emmy Award-winning Ed Asner, who is known best for his characterization of Lou Grant, Mary Richards' acerbic news director, on The Mary Tyler Moore Show »
