Former “Daily Show” correspondent Jessica Williams is set to host the 2017 Crystal + Lucy Awards. Elizabeth Banks, Tracee Ellis Ross, and Mira Nair are among the women being honored at the event, a press release from Women in Film, Los Angeles (Wif La) has announced.

Set for June 13 in Beverly Hills, this year’s fundraising dinner, themed “Evolve,” will be in support of Wif La’s educational and philanthropic programs and its work advocating for gender equality in the entertainment industry.

Pitch Perfect 2” director and actress Banks will receive the The Crystal Award for Excellence in Film, which honors “outstanding women who, through their endurance and the excellence of their work, have helped to expand the role of women within the entertainment industry.” The three-time Emmy nominated actress is set to direct two high-profile female-led films: a “Charlie’s Angels” reboot and an adaptation of Victoria Aveyard’s Ya dystopian fantasy “Red Queen.” In 2016 Banks founded WhoHaha, a digital comedy platform for women.

The Lucy Award for Excellence in Television will be given to “Black-ish” star Ross. Named after Lucille Ball, the award recognizes “women and men and their creative works that exemplify the extraordinary accomplishments she embodied; whose excellence and innovation have enhanced the perception of women through the medium of television.” Ross’ role on “Black-ish” has earned her a Golden Globe and the 2015 and 2016 NAACP Image Award for Best Actress in a Comedy Series. In her Globes acceptance speech, Ellis said, “This is for all of the women of color and colorful people whose stories, ideas and thoughts are not always considered worthy and valid and important. I want you to know that I see you and we see you.” Her other credits include “Girlfriends,” “Reed Between the Lines,” and “CSI.”

Queen of Katwe” helmer Nair will receive The BMW Dorothy Arzner Directors Award, “established to recognize the important role women directors play in the film and television industries.” Nair’s feature debut, “Salaam Bombay!” scored an Oscar nod in 1989. Her other credits include “The Reluctant Fundamentalist,” “Amelia,” and “Monsoon Wedding.”

Rising star Zoey Deutch snagged The Women In Film Max Mara Face of the Future Award, “given to an actress who is experiencing a turning point in her career through her work in the film and television industries, through her contributions to the community at large, in recognition of her outstanding achievements, and her embodiment of style and grace.” “Before I Fall,” “Why Him?” and “Everybody Wants Some!!” are among her recent credits.

The Norma Zarky Humanitarian Award will go to former “CBS Evening News” anchor Dan Rather. Named after the first woman President of the Beverly Hills Bar Association, this honor is presented “to individuals who, like Ms. Zarky herself, have demonstrated enlightened support for the advancement of equal opportunity and devotion to the improvement of the human condition.”

Co-Presidents and Co-Founders of Sony Pictures Classics Michael Barker and Tom Bernard will receive The Women In Film Beacon Award, “presented to an entertainment industry professional for outstanding leadership in the advancement of gender equity, signaling and celebrating unbiased decision making in media.” Barker and Bernard have worked with directors such as Nicole Holofcener, Agnes Varda, Sally Potter, Lisa Cholodenko, Marielle Heller, Maren Ade, Meera Menon, and Marjane Satrapi. They “will be given the inaugural award for their unmatched support of female filmmakers consistently and throughout the entire history of their careers,” the press release states.

Doctor Who: the behind-the-scenes causes of regeneration

3 May 2017 8:39 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Mark Harrison May 10, 2017

Over Doctor Who's long history, what prompted the decision to leave for those in the lead role?

All sorts of things have killed off the Doctor. In the last half century, Doctor Who's unique approach to recasting the lead character has seen him fettled by old age, as punishment, by radiation poisoning, falls big and small, dodgy operations and time itself. There are plenty of in-universe reasons for why the Doctor regenerates, and the outgoing Time Lord Peter Capaldi promises that his upcoming demise will be suitably timey-wimey, but what of the behind-the-scenes reasons that the Doctor has to go?

Mindy Newell: Jumping In On Doctor Who

17 April 2017 10:00 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

The Doctor: “Time is a structure relative to ourselves. Time is the space made by our lives, where we stand together forever. Time and relative dimension in space. It means life… This is the gateway to everything that ever was and ever can be.

Bill: …Can I use the toilet?

“The Pilot,” Doctor Who, Second Series 10, Episode 1

 My daughter Alixandra has wanted to watch Doctor Who but she’s been intimidated by the idea of catching up with 50 years of the show’s history. Hey, who wouldn’t be? I told her to start with “new Who,” with Christopher Eccleston’s as the 9th Doctor, which was “only” 12 years ago (is it really over a decade already?) and that “Rose,” the first episode, would do a great job of hooking her into the basics – although she already sorta knows them, as she remembers me watching the Tom Baker years »
