10 Things You Didn’t know about “On Golden Pond”

On Golden Pond is a touching film about growing old and watching your loved ones make their own way into the world, but it is also a film about change and what it takes to embrace it. Norman is the epitome of an old man at his age who doesn’t tend to like change and is so set in his ways that he’ll openly challenge anyone that seeks to contradict him. During their stay on Golden Pond with their soon to be step-grandson Norman does manage to change his ways just enough to accept that some things in life are

With the 89th Academy Awards right around the corner, it seems that the best actress category contains one of the tightest races with Emma Stone going head to head against Isabelle Huppert. While the La La Land ingénue is considered the favorite to take home the trophy, it’s the esteemed legend from Elle who would be the one making history. At 63 years of age — just shy of her 64th birthday — the French thespian would become the category’s third-oldest winner at the Oscars.

Come the night of the ceremony — this Sunday, February 26 — Huppert will be exactly 63 years, 11 months, and 10 days old. When looking at the history of the best actress category, there are only two other women who were older than this hypothetical outcome when they took home their statuettes: Katharine Hepburn and Jessica Tandy.

With yet another opportunity to win this year, Jeff Bridges expands his Academy Awards career to 45 years — with the chance to add to it. This is quite an accomplishment as there are very few actors and actresses with a span of that long between their last or most recent nomination. Let’s take a look at some of these other legends with Oscar stretches almost as long as or even longer than that of Bridges.

This year Bridges is nominated for best supporting actor for Hell or High Water and is up against Mahershala Ali (Moonlight), Lucas Hedges (Manchester by the Sea), Dev Patel (Lion), and Michael Shannon (Nocturnal Animals). Hell or High Water — a Western crime thriller directed by David Mackenzie and written by Taylor Sheridan — is also nominated for best picture, best original screenplay,

There ought to be a place on a screen for every kind of film story. True, old movies fronted a mostly false consensus picture of the world, claiming that there was a ‘normal’ baseline for our lives.

After all, movies were considered entertainment first, and carriers of vital social truths maybe about 97th. But then and now, there

By: Carson Blackwelder

Managing Editor

Not only is the best actress race extremely competitive this year, but it could also shape up to be one of the oldest collection of talents in Oscar history. Should the stars align correctly, this could be just the second time there have been three or more actresses in the category who were aged 50 or older. Let’s take a look at the one time before and see how it might be happening again.

According to The Hollywood Reporter’s Scott Feinberg, the current standing of the best actress category has Meryl Streep (Florence Foster Jenkins) and Isabelle Huppert (Elle) as frontrunners while Annette Bening (20th Century Women) isn’t too far behind as a major threat. The ages of these women — as of the upcoming Oscar ceremony on February 26 — is as follows: Streep will be 67 years, eight months,

Michael Davis: A Long Time Ago In A Hood Far, Far Away…

  • Comicmix
It was 1977. Lee Speller and I had just hopped (read: rode free) the subway to Manhattan. No easy feat at any subway station. You’re gambling an undercover cop won’t be among the passengers watching you break the law. You run the risk of getting an expensive ticket or getting arrested, but in Far Rockaway, Queens, you can add getting killed to that list.

The trains are elevated, so we had to climb the outside of a three-story stairwell, jump down onto the platform which was going the wrong way, and cross the tracks. Now being the geniuses we were, instead of simply going downstairs and crossing over to the right side of the platform, we crossed the tracks which included the 50,000-volt third rail. One slip, just one touch, and we were dead.

It never occurred to us that the tollbooth attendant would never have known if we just climbed onto the platform.

See Jim Carrey’s (Rejected) ‘SNL’ Auditions

There’s no disputing Jim Carrey’s designation as one of the industry’s most talented comedic actors. From “The Truman Show” to “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind” and so many more, Carrey has proven himself a bona fide master of physical and emotional storytelling. Producers at “Saturday Night Live” in the early 1980s, however, disagreed. For whatever reason, NBC’s famed weekly sketch show neglected to book Carrey as a regular cast member in its early stages. During the 40th anniversary special of “SNL,” footage was released of several stars who auditioned and were turned away. Among them were Steve Carell, Zach Galifianakis, and Carrey, who came into the audition room more than once, performing bits from his earliest stand-up and impressionist work.

Meryl Streep Reveals 1 of Her Least Favorite Acting Performances

Meryl Streep expressed regret about one of her most lauded performances. The revered three-time Oscar winner played coy before eventually revealing dissatisfaction with her performance in 1981’s “The French Lieutenant’s Woman.” “I’m giving myself an out, but part of it was the structure of it,” Streep told titular host Graham Norton on his U.K.–based show. “It was sort of artificial because I was the actress playing ‘The French Lieutenant's Woman.’ At the same time, I was an American actress playing a British woman.” Streep starred opposite Jeremy Irons as an actor in a movie within a movie. Streep may not have been a fan of her own performance, but she still won a Golden Globe, a BAFTA, and a Los Angeles Film Critics Award for her dual performances as Sarah and Anna. She eventually lost the Oscar to Katharine Hepburn’s turn in “On Golden Pond.
