Helen Mirren to Be Honored at Monte Carlo TV Fest

11 May 2017 10:01 AM, PDT | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

Helen Mirren on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert

Helen Mirren is set to receive yet another well-deserved award. The Oscar, Tony, and Emmy winner will take home the Monte Carlo Television Festival’s Crystal Nymph at a ceremony to be held June 20. The career honor will be presented to the “Woman in Gold” star by Monaco’s reigning royal, Prince Albert II, The Hollywood Reporter writes.

While Mirren is best known as a film actress, her breakout role was playing Detective Chief Inspector Jane Tennison in the procedural drama “Prime Suspect” on the small screen. The British series first debuted in 1991, but Mirren reprised the role as recently as 2006. A “Prime Suspect” reboot is in the works starring Stefanie Martini (“Doctor Thorne”) as a young Tennison. Mirren received five Emmy nods for the project and took home the honor in 1996. Her other award-winning TV credits include HBO’s “Elizabeth I” and “Phil Spector.”

“Since its inception, the Monte Carlo Television Festival has been a strong advocate and supporter of the international television business across both drama and documentary programming,” Mirren said in a statement.

The Queen” star has repeatedly spoken out against sexism and ageism in the entertainment industry. When Mirren was asked about Maggie Gyllenhaal’s admission that, at 37, she was “too old” to play a 55-year-old man’s love interest, she responded bluntly: “It’s fucking outrageous. Fucking outrageous. It’s ridiculous, honestly. It’s so annoying.” She suggested that the double standards for aging male and female actors are nothing new, saying, “We all watched James Bond as he got more and more geriatric, and his girlfriends got younger and younger. It’s so annoying.”

Trumbo,” “Eye in the Sky,” and “The Hundred-Foot Journey” are among Mirren’s recent film credits.

The Monte Carlo TV Fest will run June 16–20 in Monaco.

Helen Mirren to Be Honored at Monte Carlo TV Fest was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story. »

Friends, Romans, Cinemagoers

Chances are you will recognise the above title as an infamous line from William Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar – but don’t panic, it’s not time to dust off your old school textbooks. Just that yours truly decided to pop along to his local cinema the other night for a screening with a difference. Broadcast live from the Royal Shakespeare Company Theatre in Stratford-Upon-Avon to the Reel Cinema in Grantham, no less, was their 2017 production of the historic play. I may never pay to go and watch a movie again.

Okay, so that’s more than a slight exaggeration, but amongst Beauty and the Beast, Their Finest and The Fate of the Furious, it just leapt out at me. As I had watched a version of Julius Caesar many moons ago on a school trip, I had an inkling of what to expect from the play itself. However, it was »

MIPTV Feels Full Impact of Digital TV Revolution

6 April 2017 7:54 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Cannes — Graced by enticing pre-l.A. screenings of Disney and Lionsgate shows and large excitement at sneak-peaked scenes from Adam Price’s “Ride Upon the Storm” and Tom Tykwer’s “Babylon Berlin,” 2017’s MipTV trade fair underscored why Hollywood still dominates much of global TV, as well as the new raised bar of ambition of European dramas.

Amazon’s Roy Price laid out plans for Amazon to drive into more originals, though he did not go into specifics. Both Amazon and Netflix took meetings with key content suppliers at MipTV. Meanwhile, MipTV caught the TV business, and indeed the world, in vertiginous transition, thanks in business terms to a phenomenon little short of a revolution: the global broadcast of foreign-language shows, currently driven by Netflix.

Change, however, goes beyond that. Not for nothing, The Wit’s Virginia Mouseler drilled down in a Wednesday Fresh TV Fiction on 2017 as the “Year of Trans-Genre, »

When, in June 2016, rumour got out that director Danny Boyle had started filming the sequel to his cult hit Trainspotting people got very excited.

Paparazzi and fans alike flocked to the Edinburgh set and disrupted filming, making it tough for the filmmakers to keep anything secret. “They were trying to shelter our costumes. They had umbrellas and were like, ‘Put your hood on when you get your hair done,’” recalls Jonny Lee Miller, who once again plays platinum-blond drug addict Sick Boy. “Danny said, ‘It’s like f--king Star Wars up here.’ There was a level of excitement which was quite alarming.”

The 1996 film was an unexpected sensation and made instant stars out of Miller and his co-stars Ewan McGregor, »

As if we needed more proof of this strand’s ingenuity, the latest No. 9 was neither a house or a room, but a shoe. A lack of walls didn’t make it any less encompassing or prisonlike for the story’s lead David, a character played with painful depth by Reece Shearsmith.

What started as a light and witty portrait of an eccentric obsession ended as the darkest picture of a mind unhinged by grief. Over a spring, summer and winter, a lone shoe seemingly discarded in front of his house became the focus of David’s spiralling breakdown.

John Forgeham obituary

13 March 2017 7:20 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Veteran character actor who appeared in The Italian Job, Prime Suspect and Footballers Wives

John Forgeham, who has died aged 75, was a hard-living actor who brought some of his off-screen qualities to his best known television roles, which were often unsympathetic. As the loud-mouthed car mechanic Jim Baines in Crossroads, he was in the long-running soap at the height of its popularity, when the series was watched by some 18 million viewers (though loathed by the critics). For four years (1974-78), at one time with a curly perm redolent of the era, Jim belittled his wife, Muriel, whom he called “Mu” (played by Anne Rutter), and cheated on her with the motel garage’s secretary-turned-manager Sharon Metcalfe (Carolyn Jones). Despite the storylines, Forgeham was hugely popular, particularly with female viewers.

He continued to appear on television over the next two decades. However, by 1999, roles were drying up and he was working »

Prequel bingo: your handy checklist of ‘origin story’ tropes

7 March 2017 1:00 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

From Prime Suspect 1973 to Taken, more shows than ever are hitting the rewind button. Are you ready to tick off all the cliches?

Remember Prime Suspect? Remember what a rich and perfectly meted-out world that was? Remember how, when it ended, you felt like an entire story had been told? Well it’s back, with a sequel set 20 years before the original series. And remember Downton Abbey? Remember how it limped to the finishing line in such bad shape that you were actively glad they weren’t making any more episodes? Well they’re making more episodes, with a proposed prequel set 30 years before the original series.

It’s hard to shake the suspicion that every film and television show you ever loved will eventually become a prequel (hello Taken, Better Call Saul, Fear The Walking Dead and possibly Empire). Worse, the prequels have started to become so formulaic, »
