How the Academy Pushed the Diversity Needle with 683 Member Invites

29 June 2016 2:54 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

“Introducing the Academy class of 2016,” reads the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences website announcement of its invited new members Wednesday. And while joining that august organization is a singular honor, many say they were surprised to learn of their inclusion — mainly because they hadn’t applied for membership. Traditionally, that’s a laborious process that can take years before you get recommended by peers, vetted by your branch, and finally invited. Every year it’s a shock that someone like, say Tina Fey, IFC’s Arianna Bocco, last year’s Oscar-winner Margaret Sixel (“Mad Max: Fury Road”), or Oscar marketer Lisa Taback, wasn’t already a member.

Anne Hathaway Will Be Grounded In New Movie

6 May 2016 3:57 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Academy Award winner Anne Hathaway (Les Miserables) is planning on bringing her most recent stage success to the big screen, in a film adaptation of the George Brant play, Grounded. Having headlined the theatre production in New York to great acclaim in 2015 – under the direction of Julie Taymor (Frida) – Hathaway has snapped up the rights to the material, and will produce and star in the movie version.

It is a topical story, that has yet to have a director attached – but it will see the playwright, George Brant, adapt his own script. It tells the tale of a female fighter pilot and veteran of the Iraq War, and the drastic change that occurs when she is grounded due to her pregnancy. Reassigned to sit in a trailer day after day, piloting remote-controlled drones to drop bombs on anonymous targets overseas, the unnamed woman lives a life of two halves. One is her day job, »

Jodie Foster, Tom Hanks Offer Actors Advice at Tff 2016

27 April 2016 8:00 AM, PDT | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

The 15th annual Tribeca Film Festival increased its event slate dramatically this year, featuring more immersive performance experiences, filmmaker interviews, and conversations with some of film’s most notable actors, including Tom Hanks, Jodie Foster, and Austin Pendleton. During a chat with Tony-winning theater and film director Julie Taymor (“The Lion King,” “Frida”) on April 20, Foster revealed her first audition was at 3 years old for Coppertone sunscreen. She took her shirt off in the audition room, “showed all her muscles,” and told the casting directors her name was Alexander—she got the part. The Oscar winner also discussed her role in “Taxi Driver,” which celebrated its 40th anniversary this year, before Taymor transitioned into Foster’s directing career. Her comparatively looser approach to television and episodes of “House of Cards” and “Orange Is the New Black,” as opposed to film, where “everything is meaningful,” prompted questions about her new thriller, »

Academy, Under Fire Over Diversity, Backtracks on Voting Eligibility

15 March 2016 9:25 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

As promised, the Academy Board of Governors voted—again— to put through changes intended to diversify the voting body. They're adding three new members, who unlike the other 51 governors, are not elected by the individual branches. Director Reginald Hudlin, who co-produced this year's Oscars, writer Gregory Nava ("Frida") and animator Jennifer Yuh Nelson ("Kung Fu Panda 2") were confirmed by the current Board members for three-year terms, effective immediately.   On Tuesday the Academy also apologized, after receiving a protest letter from 25 members of Asian descent including Oscar-winning directors Frieda Lee Mock ("Maya Lin: A Strong Clear Vision") and director Ang Lee ("Life of Pi"), for Chris Rock's "tone-deaf," "tasteless and offensive" Asian joke on the February 28th Oscar telecast:  “The Academy appreciates the concerns stated, and regrets that any aspect of the Oscar telecast was offensive. »

Neighbor Fires Air Rifle, Accidentally Kills Salma Hayek's Dog

29 February 2016 2:49 PM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

By Phuong Le, Associated Press

Seattle (AP) -- Salma Hayek's neighbor fired an air rifle toward a dog that had come into his garage and fought with his dogs, apparently unaware that he had struck and killed the actress' dog, authorities in Washington state said Monday.

The Thurston County Sheriff's Office ruled the shooting justified but will send the case to prosecutors for review, said spokesman Lt. Cliff Ziesemer. The office has been investigating after Hayek's dog was found shot on her ranch on Feb. 19 south of Yelm, about 70 miles south of Seattle.

Kim Lund, the actress' neighbor, told The Associated Press her husband had not intended to kill the dog.

"We didn't even know we hit the dog," she said Monday, adding that her husband held up the pellet gun and shot it to scare the dogs away. She said one of the dogs was on top »

Salma Hayek and Elodie Yung Join Ryan Reynold's First Post-deadpool Flick

26 February 2016 9:11 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Folks, if you're fans of Ryan Reynolds, it's time to celebrate. With Deadpool the man finally had his first solo smash hit. As I touched on in a column on that film's success, while Reynolds is a household name, and has a face recognizable enough to have an entire Super Bowl commercial built around it, he's actually had an extremely flimsy run when it comes to box office success. That all changed when Deadpool came out and started breaking records, finally shattering the actor's tough run. So how will the actor take his victory lap? By inviting Salma Hayek and Elodie Yung to join him, of course.

The one-time Mr. Johansson has lined up his next film, Hitman's Bodyguard. Deadline is reporting that the film, which will be directed by Kick-ass 2 helmer Jeff Wadlow, has added Hayek (DesperadoFrida, From Dusk Til Dawn) and Elodie Yung- who's about »
