Gay and Lesbian Critics Association Honor ‘Moonlight’ and ‘Jackie’ with Dorian Award Noms

12 January 2017 12:29 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

For the second year in a row, the Gay and Lesbian Entertainment Critics Association (Galeca) have rallied around an obvious favorite: “Moonlight.” Last year, Todd Haynes’s “Carol” swept Galeca’s Dorian Awards, and from its prominence amongst the nominees announced today, “Moonlight” will likely do the same.

Not restricted to films with explicit queer themes, the films nominated for film of the year are “Jackie,” “Manchester by the Sea,” “La La Land, “20th Century Women,” and “Moonlight.” The nominees for Lgbtq Film of the Year are “Being 17,” “Closet Monster,” “Moonlight,” “Other People,” and “The Handmaiden.”

Judging by its very strong Oscar chances, the enthusiasm for “Moonlight” has overshadowed all other worthy queer films. “The Handmaiden” was notably absent from the Oscar short list for Best Foreign Language Film, and the other three Dorian nominees are not in contention at all. »

Jelani Cobb Tapped for Writers Guild East’s Walter Bernstein Award

11 January 2017 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Writers Guild of America East has named “Policing the Police” filmmaker Jelani Cobb as the inaugural winner of its Walter Bernstein Award.

Cobb will be presented with the honor at the 69th annual Writers Guild Awards at New York’s Edison Ballroom on Feb. 19. The award is presented “to honor writers who have demonstrated with creativity, grace and bravery a willingness to confront social injustice in the face of adversity.”

“Policing the Police,” which aired in June as part of the PBS investigative series “Frontline,” explores the complexities involved in reforming the Newark Police Department and its fractured relationship with the community. Cobb embedded with two detectives in the Newark Police Department’s gang unit to witness firsthand how undercover officers operate following a 2014 report from the U.S. Department of Justice that showed Newark’s police had engaged in a pattern of unconstitutional conduct.

Cher to Star in Lifetime Movie About the Flint Water Crisis

6 January 2017 9:26 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Cher‘s got you, Flint.

The 70-year-old Oscar winner has tapped her next project — a Lifetime original movie about the water-contamination crisis in Flint, Michigan.

The upcoming film, titled Flint, examines the politics and poor management that lead to the poisoning of the Michigan water, Deadline reports — and the residents whose voices and suffering were ignored.

Cher will play a Flint resident whose family is impacted by the crisis.

It’s a fitting role for the actress and singer. She’s been outspoken on social media about the crisis, donating bottled water to the Food Bank of Eastern Michigan in the thousands. »

Cher to Star in Lifetime’s Flint Water Crisis TV Movie

5 January 2017 5:55 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Cher will star in Lifetime’s TV movie “Flint” about the water contamination crisis in Flint, Michigan, Variety has confirmed.

In addition to starring, Cher will also serve as executive producer with Craig Zadan, Neil Meron, and Katie Couric, who are all producing. Bruce Beresford will direct, and Barbara Stepansky is writing. The telepic — which was first announced last spring — has not been officially greenlit yet, but is expected to begin production this spring, according to Deadline, which first broke news of Cher’s casting. Sony Television is the studio.

Unlike other Lifetime TV movies, the project is expected to be a hard-hitting fact-based drama. It will explore the events that led to the toxic crime and will shed light on politics of the poor management and the human element of residents who suffered and were ignored. Cher will play a local Flint resident whose family is impacted by the water crisis.
