Emily Blunt practices what she preaches. As cinema is under increasing pressure to acknowledge and deliver work that appeals to more than white teenage males, so Blunt is using the profile she's developed through roles like The Devil Wears Prada, The Young Victoria and Sicario to bring to the screen fully-rounded female characters. They're present in everything she's done lately, whether that's Rian Johnson's Looper, the Tom Cruise actioner Edge of Tomorrow, or… »
Coleman swaps Tardis travel for court machinations as the young Victoria. Plus, a little Are You Being Served? and Porridge go a long way
We have had The Young Victoria starring Emily Blunt. Now The Even Younger Victoria starring Jenna Coleman. What next? The Extremely Young Victoria, let’s hope, starring a Gogglesprog. And then In Vitro Victoria, in which the heroine will be played by a grownup swimming in amniotic fluid in a repurposed burkini that the costume department have borrowed from armed cops who removed it from women on French beaches. Failing that, in Laura Trott’s used omnium outfit.
In Victoria (ITV), Coleman wakes up one morning to discover she isn’t time-travelling in the Tardis with Peter Capaldi any more. Instead, it’s 1837 and she is poised to become the queen following (sad face) the death of her uncle, the king. I don’t know who Coleman’s agent is, »

This week marks the 90th birthday of her majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
Elizabeth Alexandra Mary was born in 1926. The Queen celebrates two birthdays each year: her actual birthday on the 21st of April and her official birthday on the second Saturday in June. (Trooping of the Colours)
She is the world’s oldest reigning monarch as well as Britain’s longest-lived. In 2015, she surpassed the reign of her great-great-grandmother, Queen Victoria, to become the longest-reigning British monarch and the longest-reigning queen regent in world history.
Looking to celebrate her Majesty’s birthday? First, everyone rise for the national anthem of the United Kingdom.
God save our gracious Queen!
Long live our noble Queen!
God save the Queen!
Send her victorious,
Happy and glorious,
Long to reign over us:
God save the Queen!

“As far back as I can remember I loved clothes,” Sandy Powell, the great costume designer — Oscar-nominated this year for both Carol and Cinderella — tells me as we sit down to record an episode of the ‘Awards Chatter’ podcast. Should Powell win for one film or the other, the 55-year-old Brit, who has 12 Oscar noms to her name, would join four legends of her profession —Edith Head, Irene Sharaff, Charles LeMaire and Milena Canonero — as the only costume designers ever awarded four or more Oscars. (Her three wins, thus far, came for 1998’s Shakespeare in Love, 2004’s The Aviator and 2009’s The Young Victoria.)

Read More: Indiewire Awards Season Spotlight British costume designer Sandy Powell has been nominated for 10 Academy Awards -- winning on 3 occasions (for "Shakespeare in Love," "The Aviator" and "The Young Victoria") -- and she's now added two more for doing the costumes for both "Cinderella" and "Carol," in both occasions dressing Cate Blanchett in endlessly stunning ensembles. Will it be enough for Oscar #4? Because she'll be splitting votes between herself, this category may go to the gloriously far out world of "Mad Max." Below is Anne Thompson's take on how things might shake down in the race for best costume design. Check out Thompson on Hollywood's Oscar predictions page for more awards season analysis.

French Canadian filmmaker Jean-Marc Vallée has been around. He directed Emily Blunt in “The Young Victoria" and got good notices with “Cafe De Flore,” but all it took was “Dallas Buyers Club” to score several Oscar nominations and then win two acting Academy Awards, and then Vallée soon found himself to be one of the most in demand directors working today. “Wild” with Reese Witherspoon followed, and right up on its heels is “Demolition,” the filmmaker’s collaboration with Jake Gyllenhaal, Naomi Watts and more. Read More: The 30 Most Anticipated Films From 2016 We've Already Seen “Demolition” centers on a investment banker (Gyllenhaal) who loses everything and tries to put back the pieces of his life through cathartic destruction.
