Wondering Why Sia Covers Her Face While Performing?

12 July 2016 3:30 PM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Sia has made a big comeback in the past couple years, and if you've watched any of her recent performances, you might be wondering what the heck is going on. Though she broke out when "Breathe Me" was featured in the last episode of Six Feet Under in 2005 and has worked on countless songs you know, only recently has she taken to performing with her back to the camera. She wrote an "Anti-Fame Manifesto" for Billboard in 2013, explaining why she has no interest in being famous: "If anyone besides famous people knew what it was like to be a famous person, they would never want to be famous. Imagine the stereotypical highly opinionated, completely uninformed mother-in-law character and apply it to every teenager with a computer in the entire world. Then add in all bored people, as well as people whose job it is to report on celebrities. Then, picture that creature, »

San Diego Comic-Con 2016: Your Complete Guide

11 July 2016 12:15 PM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

In 1971, the 300-or-so people pawing through cardboard boxes of dusty comic books couldn't have possibly imagined that they were standing in what would become the cradle of nerd civilization. From a small meetup for diehard geeks, San Diego Comic-Con has grown into one of the largest and most feverishly anticipated pop-cultural events of the year. Thousands upon thousands of industry types, journalists, the devout faithful (and the suckers they've handsomely paid to stand in line as proxies) and cosplaying fans of all stripes will descend upon the city from July »

The X-Files: The Event Series Review

6 July 2016 11:27 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After nine years of monsters, aliens and shadow government conspiracies, The X-Files closed its doors during the spring of 2002. Taken off air as a result of declining ratings and a general drop in quality, its loss left a large hole in the hearts of many who’d followed along since the early 90s.

Thankfully for us Xphiles, what was once thought to be dead didn’t stay buried long. In 2008, creator Chris Carter brought his now iconic series back into the limelight with the stand-alone movie, I Want to Believe. However, while it brought fans the married Mulder and Scully tandem that they’d been pining for for years, an uninteresting plot, some embarrassing writing and poor casting decisions led to a box office flop.

I Want to Believe‘s high profile failure was thought to be the final nail in the show’s coffin. Fans were unhappy, Fox was »

How This ‘Game of Thrones’ Director Moved From Cannes to Westeros (Emmy Video)

4 July 2016 10:18 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

How did an indie auteur from Canada come to direct HBO’s spectacular epic “Game of Thrones?”

When writer-director Jeremy Podeswa was asked to helm an episode of Showtime series “Queer as Folk,” which was looking for local directors for its Canadian locations, he figured it was a temporary detour from his career as an indie auteur. His 1999 film, “The Five Senses,” was developed in the Sundance Labs and played Directors’ Fortnight at Cannes. But after “Queer,” producer Alan Poul, who championed “The Five Senses” at Sundance, sought out Podeswa to direct HBO’s “Six Feet Under.” Podeswa did, enthusiastically, one for each of its five seasons.

Podeswa moved on to the period riches of HBO’s “Carnivale,” his first crack at a more elevated genre with fantastical elements. And somehow, he landed the episode in which just about every major character had sex. “It was not an accident,” he said in our video interview. »

15 Great Ways Filmmakers Found Their Independence In The Last 20 Years

4 July 2016 5:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Subverting the Unexpected

At the end of the 20th century, Bobcat Goldthwait’s legacy read like a cheap joke: He was a screaming comedian from the eighties best known as Zed in the “Police Academy” franchise who once tried at his hand at directing a movie (“Shakes the Clown”). Those achievements barely skimmed the surface of Goldthwait’s ability, as the ensuing years made clear, when Goldthwait completely transformed his career into one of the most provocative American filmmakers working today. With the microbudget “Sleeping Dogs Lie” (aka “Stay”), Goldthwait showed his potential to funnel taboo subject matters into oddly touching, relatable human dramas, a proclivity he kicked up to a whole new level with the subversive black comedy “World’s Greatest Dad,” which features Robin Williams in one of his all-time great roles.

Goldthwait has kept innovating, with each new movie offering a fresh perspective on the naive assumptions »

Not every artist is happy to have their song featured in a particular TV show or film. Here are 17 times the rights were refused...

It's not only political campaigns that inspire musical artists to exercise the power of veto on the use of their songs. For reasons of finance, reputation, ego, taste and more, the following TV shows and films weren't able to secure the use of the recordings they originally sought...

This Express piece quotes an Empire Magazine interview with Martin Scorsese’s long-time editor Thelma Schoonmaker in which she relates how the original plan was to have Frank Sinatra’s original recording of My Way play over the end credits of modern gangster classic Goodfellas instead of the Sid Vicious cover that was eventually used.

The 11 Most Honest Portrayals of Abortion on TV

28 June 2016 11:55 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Yesterday’s Supreme Court ruling, which overruled a Texas abortion law that would shut down all but a handful of clinics across the state, was the most significant decision on abortion the court has made in the last 20 years. While abortion is a constant hot topic in terms of governmental policy, it is rarely addressed on our televisions, outside of CNN or Fox News. And when it is addressed, TV shows have a tendency to shy away from honestly portraying how real women deal with unwanted pregnancies.
