2013 Screen Actors Guild Award Nominations Deliver Some Surprises

12 December 2012 6:14 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

The 2013 Screen Actors Guild Award nominations were announced this morning and certainly deliver a shake-up to the race as Zero Dark Thirty misses out on an ensemble nomination, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel snags two nominations, Joaquin Phoenix isn't nominated for The Master, Django Unchained doesn't get a single nomination and both Helen Mirren (Hitchcock) and Naomi Watts (The Impossible) were nominated in the Best Actress race over Emmanuelle Riva (Amour). Supporting nominations for Nicole Kidman (The Paperboy) and Javier Bardem (Skyfall) also add a litle spice to the mix. As for the absence of Quvenzhane Wallis, Beasts of the Southern Wild was already determined to be ineligible for the SAG Awards because it was not made under the terms of SAG Low Budget Feature Agreement, which mandates the use of professional actors.

Margo Martindale: 'Steel'ing Hearts 25 Years Later

29 November 2012 12:45 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Most people learned to love Margo Martindale thanks to her powerful and Emmy-winning turn as Mags Bennett on the second season of FX's Justified.

But the beloved actress first began winning over audiences with the first staging of Steel Magnolias in 1987 when she originated the role of Truvy. Now, she's returning to The Lucille Lortel Theater for a 25th Anniversary reading of Robert Harling classic play (benefiting The Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation) on December 3 -- although this time, she's tackling the role of Ouiser!

ETonline caught up with Martindale to talk about the 25th Anniversary, what it means to be re-staging this play and what happened when Steel the play met Steel the film and she met Julia Roberts!

ETonline: Is it crazy to you that it's the 25th Anniversary of Steel Magnolias?

Margo Martindale: Well, I must say, I didn't think much of it when they first asked me to do it since I'm not »

Happy 66th Birthday to Sally Field! What's Her Greatest Single Moment?

6 November 2012 1:09 PM, PST | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

The smart, talented, gorgeous, super liberal, super gay-loving, and above-all-else consistently great Sally Field turns 66 today. Oh, Sally! Mary Todd Lincoln should be playing you! And John Wilkes Booth should be sitting in the balcony, dropping the gun, and weeping at a live screening of Norma Rae.

I found myself actually daunted at the thought of picking Sally Field's greatest moment, so I thought we could do it together. Here are the nominees for Sally Field's most kickass moment in entertainment, ranked.

10. Don't pretend she wasn't the most realistic mom ever in Mrs. Doubtfire.

9. She was still lovable will spouting the worst jokes in history in Punchline.

8. She redefined "manic" in Soapdish.

7. Behold: The only issue of Playboy I'd ever buy.

6. She voiced a cat named Sassy. Twice.

5. I can't deny the fact that we like her. Right now. We like her.

4. Brothers and Sisters, people. Brothers and Sisters. »

Win Joyful Noise on DVD

30 October 2012 9:54 AM, PDT | | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Oscar® nominees Queen Latifah (“Chicago,” “Hairspray”) and Dolly Parton (“Transamerica,” “Steel Magnolias,” “Nine to Five”) star in Joyful Noise, a funny and inspirational story of music, hope, love and renewal, on Monday, DVD 5 November.

The small town of Pacashau, Georgia, has fallen on hard times, but the people are counting on the Divinity Church Choir to lift their spirits by winning the National Joyful Noise Competition.  The choir has always known how to sing in harmony, but the discord between its two leading ladies now threatens to tear them apart.  Their newly appointed director, Vi Rose Hill (Latifah), stubbornly wants to stick with their tried-and-true traditional style, while the fiery G.G. Sparrow (Parton) thinks tried-and-true translates to tired-and-old.

Shaking things up even more is the arrival of G.G.’s rebellious grandson, Randy (Jeremy Jordan).  Randy has an ear for music, but he also has an eye for Vi Rose’s beautiful and talented daughter, »

'Steel Magnolias' remake stars Queen Latifah and Alfre Woodard talk updating the classic

7 October 2012 3:00 PM, PDT | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

When you're remaking a movie as classic and beloved as the tearjerker "Steel Magnolias," you have to walk a fine line between paying tribute to the film and merely imitating the original performances. It was easy for Alfre Woodard to make her part all her own, though, considering she hadn't seen "Steel Magnolias."

It's Woodard's dirty little secret, which actually works to her advantage. She explains, "You want to pay homage to the first wife, but you don't want to ask your husband, 'How did the first wife kiss you?' So having it just in 2012 in a visual language that they can understand will make fans hold on to the original even more, because it becomes part of a continuum."

Producer and star Queen Latifah (matriarch M'Lynn, originally played by Sally Field) had seen "Steel Magnolias," but made it a point not to re-watch before starting production. "For me »

'Steel Magnolias' blooms again on Lifetime with Queen Latifah and Phylicia Rashad

7 October 2012 12:00 PM, PDT | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

Remakes of hit movies always are a dicey prospect, so when word circulated that Lifetime was planning to do a new version of "Steel Magnolias," this time with the six main characters played by black actresses, quite a few eyebrows shot up.

After all, director Herb Ross' 1989 big-screen adaptation of Robert Harling's New York stage smash had been a solid box-office hit, with an all-star cast headed by current and future Academy Award winners Sally Field, Julia Roberts, Olympia Dukakis and Shirley MacLaine, along with Dolly Parton and Daryl Hannah.

Casting began on the new Lifetime version, which premieres Sunday, Oct. 7, after executive producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron asked Harling whether he ever would sanction a remake of the story. It wasn't just a business proposition, after all, since Shelby, the doomed young diabetic woman Roberts played in the 1989 film, was based on Harling's own late sister. »

Queen Latifah talks "Steel Magnolias," cooking with Dolly and digging deep for a role

Tags: Queen LatifahAdepero OduyePhylicia RashadAlfre WoodardIMDb

Understandably, there are some mixed emotions about this weekend’s remake of Steel Magnolias. If the knockout cast hasn’t helped buoy your feelings, you should also know that two of the producers, Craig Zadan and Neil Meron, are a superstar duo who also worked with Queen Latifah on Chicago and Hairspray. In other words, they know how to redo big stories right.

At a recent press roundtable, Zadan, Meron, and The Queen took some time to answer some questions about this highly-anticipated film, to air on Lifetime on Sunday night. (Read our review here.)

Q: Can you talk about how this version is going to be different than the original? 

Craig Zadan: We approached it as though it was a new piece of writing. We’re not doing anything to copy the original production, because the original play was amazing and the original movie was amazing. »
