This Week on Stage: James Franco dishes, Audra McDonald dazzles (again)

19 April 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Lesson learned this week on Broadway: if he does not like what you wrote about him, James Franco will call you “a little bitch”. Franco, who made his Broadway debut this week in Of Mice and Men opposite Bridesmaids charmer Chris O’Dowd, took on the New York Times’ Ben Brantley on Instagram, making it the 453rd silly thing he’s done this year. (Or is it incredibly shrewd and constant self-promotion? One cannot be sure.) In more benevolent news, a bevy of much-loved stage, film, and TV triple threats returned to their roots, including Audra McDonald (channeling the haunted spirit of Billie Holiday, »

11 March 2014 4:29 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

One of the young actresses who has seen her star rise in Hollywood over the past few years is Mia Wasikowska. With roles in movies such as The Kids are All Right, Jane Eyre, Lawless, and Stoker, as well as the tv show In Treatment, her presence in a project increases its interest. It was no different with her newest feature, titled Tracks. The film is directed by John Curran, and the screenplay is adapted by Marion Nelson from a book by Robyn Davidson.

Sneak peek: Mark Ruffalo and Julia Roberts in 'The Normal Heart'

11 March 2014 2:24 AM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Almost three decades after Larry Kramer's play "The Normal Heart" debuted in 1985, this visceral look at the early days of the AIDS crisis is finally getting a screen adaptation. Ryan Murphy ("American Horror Story," "Glee") has assembled a top-notch cast for this telefilm that debuts on HBO on May 25. (Watch the trailer below.) Expect this production to be a major contender come Emmy time. With the splitting of the TV Movie & Miniseries category into separate ones, "The Normal Heart" is a strong favorite for the former. However, as the performance categories remain combined, there will be major competition for these awards. Vote for Best TV Movie/Mini Actor at the bottom of this post using our easy drag-and-drop menu.   -Break- Oscar nominee Mark Ruffalo ("The Kids Are All Right") takes on the main role of Ned Weeks, a man who fights back against the widespread fear of the disease. »

The Face Of Love Review

8 March 2014 1:03 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

If The Face of Love proves anything, it is that Annette Bening is still one of the finest American actors working today. In Arie Posin’s new drama, which boasts shades of Douglas Sirk and an attempted Hitchcockian suspense, she gives everything to the role of Nikki Lostrom, a lonesome widow who pursues a relationship with a man who has an uncanny resemblance to her late husband.

In the opening scene, Nikki sits, sullen and anguished, by the pool of her immaculate Los Angeles home, gripping a glass of wine as she remembers finding her husband Garrett (Ed Harris) dead, strewn on the beach after drowning during a trip to Mexico. Distracted by these harrowing memories, she drops the wine glass. Picking up the pieces of broken glass, Nikki does not even grimace, even when she grips the shards so tightly her hand starts bleeding. Bening is a fearless actor »

Non-Stop review: your popcorn bucket doubles as a floatation device

28 February 2014 8:12 AM, PST | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

It’s a locked-plane mystery! The text is coming from inside the plane! Well, actually… maybe it isn’t? There’s a delicious cleverness to this very silly but very entertaining flick. I’m “biast” (pro): the trailer looked like fun

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

If you have some ghosts that need to be exorcised — metaphorically speaking, that is, such as, say, the cultural ghosts of 9/11 — and you want them to stay exorcised, you could do worse than to call on Liam Neeson. He has a very particular set of skills, you see, skills acquired over a very long career as an actor. He can be machinelike badass and lip-quiveringly flawed human at the same time. So he makes us moviegoers like him, and more importantly, he makes us trust him.

Trust that, for another instance, he will look for, »

Where My Girls At? Chastain, Farmiga, Kidman, Bening

27 February 2014 8:52 AM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

And now another edition of "Where My Girls At?" which occurs whenever Nathaniel is longing for actresses who have temporarily gone missing. I'm focusing this one on the beauties we won't even be seeing at the Oscars this year. 

Jessica Chastain

Did you see this photo Jessica Chastain posted to her Facebook account?

She wrote:

That's a wrap for me on A Most Violent Year. Working with talent like Jc Chandor and Oscar Isaac are the reason I love my job. I'm a very lucky girl. xxjes

Somehow I hadn't clocked this new project but it's an 1980s NY set thriller (so that explains the look) about an immigrant (one presumes that's Isaac, who seems to symbolize any "foreign" element these days to Hollywood) trying to capitalize on business opportunities but beware of Violence! Decay! Corruption! I miss Jes, don't you? I know that's insane since I saw her live »

The BFI have announced this year’s theme (and new name!) to the London Lgbt Film Festival – going with the wonderful new name of BFI Flare. To coincide with the programme reveal, they also announced the opening and closing films of the festival.

Surprise. "Freeheld" Back On. Now With Julianne Moore!

13 February 2014 2:00 PM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

You're forgiven if you've long since forgotten that Ellen Page was trying to get a feature version of the Oscar winning documentary short Freeheld (2007) off the ground. She first tried in 2008, shortly after her rise to fame with Juno (2007). The film, based on a true story, is about a lesbian couple, the young Stacie (Page) and her older police detective partner Laurel Hester (Moore) who receive devastating news: Laurel is terminally ill and the government won't let her assign her pension benefits to Stacie. At the time this was first announced it looked like a great Oscar project for Page but nothing ever came of. The good news: It's back on!

But the news gets even better...

Julianne Moore is on board to play Laurel so maybe she's finally got her Oscar role. Not that Oscar is the most important thing here. The important thing is tell good stories about »

The 10 Greatest Losing “Best Actress” Oscar Nominees (Of the Past 10 Years)

10 February 2014 9:58 AM, PST | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

The Oscars are uncomfortably close. We’re less than three weeks away from the big moment where Judi Dench will (hopefully) cackle menacingly as her Notes on a Scandal costar Cate Blanchett picks up a second statue. “You’re a vampire!” Cate will holler from the stage. And I’ll jump into the TV.

The point is it’s time to think about actresses in a big way. Today’s topic: the 10 greatest losing Best Actress nominees of the past 10 years. Forget “winning performances” like Sandra Bullock in The Blind Side or Reese Witherspoon in Walk the Line. These are the runners-up whose work also deserved formal, fabulous recognition. (Keep in mind I’m not necessarily saying these actresses should’ve won, but I will tell you who they were up against.)
