Doctor Who Season 10 Episode 2 Review: Smile

23 April 2017 11:01 AM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

The Doctor took Bill on her first official adventure as a companion, and naturally they encountered a life-threatening situation in Doctor Who Season 10 Episode 2.

At first, "Smile" bore some superficial resemblance to a Seventh Doctor serial called "The Happiness Patrol," which saw a world on which happiness was the law (enforced, naturally, in a fascist manner).

Then there was the Big Twist, which actually proved both strangely sad and simultaneously face-palm worthy (a truly impressive feat).

Actually, "Smile" ended up bearing a surprising resemblance to Doctor Who Season 4 Episode 6, "The Doctor's Daughter," which featured human colonists and a bunch of deaths in an unexpectedly short period of time.

Not to mention the Doctor lecturing the colonists on how to treat their neighbors!

As mentioned above, this was the first official adventure of Bill and the Doctor, following their initial meeting, and the trip to the distant colony world proved quite an excellent bonding experience. »

Why Nicole Kidman Is a Full-Fledged Badass, Even Before ‘Big Little Lies’ — Career Watch

11 April 2017 3:37 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Welcome to Career Watch, a vocational checkup of top actors and directors, and those who hope to get there. In this edition we take on Nicole Kidman, who’s having something of a renaissance moment.

Bottom Line: Nicole Kidman is one of our most fearless actresses. She’s an Oscar perennial who constantly chases challenging material, edginess be damned. Yes, her most recent nomination stemmed from a very mild-mannered role as Dev Patel’s mother in the true-life Australian drama “Lion,” but for Kidman’s career it’s her exceptions that prove the rule.

She broadened her fanbase by producing, with Reese Witherspoon, the hugely popular and topical HBO drama series “Big Little Lies,” in which she co-starred as Celeste Wright, an elegant Monterey mom trapped in a sadomasochistic power struggle of spousal abuse with her husband Perry (Alexander Skarsgard). Critics’ raves and audience reaction will likely push Kidman to »

2017 Oscars Backstage: Best Picture Flub Leads Chatter From Emma Stone, Barry Jenkins and More

26 February 2017 11:13 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Hollywood’s biggest night — and the glitzy, glam-filled capper of the annual awards season — unfolded Sunday at Hollywood & Highland’s Dolby Theatre, where the entertainment industry’s biggest and brightest turned out en masse to celebrate (and potentially walk away with a statuette of their very own). By the time Oscar Sunday bowed (a little dark, a touch rainy) there was still plenty left up in the air (though few could predict the wild turn the ceremony eventually took in its final moments).

Ultimately, big nominee “La La Land” walked away with 6 Oscars — including Best Actress and Best Director — though there’s no question the biggest story of the night (of the year? of the Oscars ever?) was an announcing flub from Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway, who initially announced that “La La Land” had won Best Picture, before issuing a correction that the accolade actually belonged to Barry Jenkins’ “Moonlight. »

2017 Oscars: The Best Things We Saw Live On the Red Carpet

26 February 2017 7:31 PM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

The red carpet at the Oscars was a tad nippy this year, as actresses shivered in their diaphanous sleeveless gowns and strappy stilettos. Also exposing a lot of skin was the Australian cast from foreign language nominee “Tanna.”

Best Actress nominee Isabelle Huppert, fresh from winning a Cesar in Paris and an Indie Spirit in Santa Monica, wisely covered up.

Many nominees brought their parents, from composer Lin-Manuel Miranda (“Moana”) to Dev Patel (“Lion”).

Lion” star Nicole Kidman brought her husband Keith Urban. “You’re the lioness that roared,” Daily Mail correspondent Baz Bamigboye told her. “I’m a kitten,” she demurred. “I’m not sure about that,” replied Urban.

On the carpet, you can see that Scarlett Johansson has a peekaboo tattoo under her arm, and that Taraji P. Henson had coated her long legs to shimmer with gold. “You’re not a hidden figure!” chortled an admiring Bamigboye. »

The 89th Academy Awards are almost here, and with it come several opportunities for history to be made.

Oscars Aren’t So White This Year, But That Doesn’t Mean They’re Diverse

24 February 2017 7:00 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

There has been a lot of feel-good diversity press about the 2017 Oscar nominations, especially when compared to the two embarrassingly monochromatic years that preceded them. Much of that is deserved; after massive backlash led by April Reign’s #OscarsSoWhite twitter campaign, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences added hundreds of women and people of color to the voting ranks — a significant, if long overdue, change to their Academy membership.

If you’re among those applauding the increasingly diverse nominations 2017, I have a question: What does diversity really means to you?

I am a black woman. Like many other black women, I’ve spent many years feeling unrepresented and invisible to our film and television industries. I have celebrated a year in which I and my children could see more than one quality representation of black men and women in a major motion picture. The success of amazing black-starring films like “Fences, »

‘Bananas Town’: Seth Rogen & Evan Goldberg Co-Direct Short Film Sponsored by Walmart — Watch

23 February 2017 3:09 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The Academy Awards aren’t known for their commercials the way the Super Bowl is, but that may change somewhat this year. Walmart has partnered with Seth Rogen & Evan Goldberg, Antoine Fuqua and Marc Forster on a series of short films set to premiere during this Sunday’s broadcast, with each ad based around the idea that “every receipt tells a story.” Watch Rogen & Goldberg’s contribution to the project below.

The directors are tasked with using a receipt for everyday items — bananas, paper towels, batteries, a scooter, wrapping paper and a video baby monitor — as the basis of their short. In the case of “Bananas Town,” a normal school day turns into an impromptu song-and-dance number. Apparently the musical bent of “Sausage Party” wasn’t a one-off for the frequent collaborators.

24 January 2017 9:36 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

If you’ve tuned in for even a second of awards season this year, you know that La La Land is the film to watch. It swept the Golden Globes, taking home seven awards (which, by the way, set a new record for the most Globes won by a single film, ever) and tied the record for most Academy Award nominations received by a single film — 14. But will it do the same at this weekend’s Screen Actors Guild Awards? Not likely — in fact, the Best Picture contender isn’t even in the running for the SAG equivalent, outstanding cast in a motion picture. »
