Jennifer Lawrence Was Adorably Awkward in 2011 E! News Interview Before Her First Oscars

19 November 2015 12:01 PM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Jennifer Lawrence was pretty much always adorable...and often, adorably awkward at celebrity events. Before she wielded a bow and arrow as Katniss Everdeen, The Hunger Games star Jennifer Lawrence was introduced to much of the world as a relatively unknown Oscar nominee. She was just 20 years old when she was nominated for her first Academy Award, for her performance in Winter's Bone, her breakout role. She had previously starred on the TBS comedy series The Bill Engvall Show and the shows MediumCold Case and Monk (as a high school mascot!). Lawrence was very surprised that Winter's Bone got Oscar buzz. "Uh, I dunno," she told E! News »

6 November 2015 8:50 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Known for working with some of the film industry's best, including Spike JonzeAlejandro González Iñárritu and David Lynch, Steve Golin has made a name for himself through his work with Anonymous Content, a production management firm that claims "The Knick," "Winter's Bone" and "The End of the Tour" among its long list of achievements. After a year of producing some of TV's best shows like HBO's Emmy-winning "True Detective" and USA's wildly popular "Mr. Robot," Golin has transitioned his focus back into film with Tom McCarthy's stunning awards contender "Spotlight." After over 30 years in the industry, Golin's independent sensibilities and affinity for director-driven projects continues to cement him as one of the most prolific and creatively-minded producers working today.  Read More: How Nic Pizzolatto's Temper Tantrum Toward Critics Ruined 'True Detective' Season »

Watch: Jennifer Lawrence Shines In The New Trailer For David O. Russell's 'Joy'

21 October 2015 5:59 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

After "Winter's Bone" and an Oscar nomination at the age of 21, Jennifer Lawrence was well on her way to stardom. And the big roles followed, "The Hunger Games" and "X-Men: First Class," but a special kind of alchemy has been untapped with her ongoing collaboration with director David O. Russell. It's won her a Best Actress Oscar already ("Silver Linings Playbook") and another nomination for "American Hustle" -- it was supposed to be a small supporting role, but ended up stealing much of the movie. Their collaboration continues for their third film, "Joy." Read More: The Films Of David O. Russell Ranked From Worst To Best “It’s fascinating and terrifying working for him because he’s a mad scientist genius,” Lawrence told EW earlier this summer about working with Russell. “He’s inspired by anything.

Amy Schumer Is Giving Us Major Jennifer Lawrence Vibes in This Red Gown

20 October 2015 9:09 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Amy Schumer and Jennifer Lawrence are taking their friendship to the next level—they're sharing clothes! Ok, not actually, but Schumer totally channeled her friend's Oscars look at Monday's Elle's Women in Hollywood Awards. The Inside Amy Schumer star stunned in a red gown on the red carpet and completed her look by wearing her long blonde locks down with a slight wave. J.Law donned a very similar look (read: basically twinning) at the 2011 Academy Awards, her first time attending the event in honor of her nomination for Winter's Bone. Although Lawrence didn't take home the highly coveted gold trophy that year, she did earn a best-dressed nod in her Calvin Klein Collection gown, which »

Why Debra Granik Went from 'Winter's Bone' to 'Stray Dog,' Season Opener of PBS Docuseries 'Independent Lens'

7 October 2015 8:26 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Filmmaker Debra Granik earned an impressive four Oscar nominations for 2010's "Winter's Bone," including best picture, actress (Jennifer Lawrence), supporting actor (John Hawkes) and adapted screenplay. Clearly all the talent on display in 2004's "Down to the Bone," which boosted the career of Vera Farmiga, was not a flash in the pan. What was the deliberate New York filmmaker, who works closely with producer-writer Anne Rossellini, going to do next? Well, she pursued several promising projects that have yet to come to fruition. Among them were "American High Life," a possible HBO series created by young writer Nicki Paluga, and Granik's film version of Russell Banks' novel "Rule Of The Bone," marking the third part of her unofficial osteo-trilogy, about an abused 14-year-old Jamaican-American who turns to drugs, gets kicked out of his home, and returns to Jamaica to find his father. Banks was optimistic that a cast of unknowns and names would. »

Oscar History-Making Actress Has Her Day on TCM

4 August 2015 12:19 AM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Teresa Wright ca. 1945. Teresa Wright movies on TCM: 'The Little Foxes,' 'The Pride of the Yankees' Pretty, talented Teresa Wright made a relatively small number of movies: 28 in all, over the course of more than half a century. Most of her films have already been shown on Turner Classic Movies, so it's more than a little disappointing that TCM will not be presenting Teresa Wright rarities such as The Imperfect Lady and The Trouble with Women – two 1947 releases co-starring Ray Milland – on Aug. 4, '15, a "Summer Under the Stars" day dedicated to the only performer to date to have been shortlisted for Academy Awards for their first three film roles. TCM's Teresa Wright day would also have benefited from a presentation of The Search for Bridey Murphy (1956), an unusual entry – parapsychology, reincarnation – in the Wright movie canon and/or Roseland (1977), a little-remembered entry in James Ivory's canon. »

Review: 'Winter's Bone' Director Debra Granik Paints A Remarkable Portrait With Documentary 'Stray Dog'

2 July 2015 3:33 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

When “Winter’s Bone” writer and director Debra Granik ventured to Missouri to make the film, she returned with more than she expected — the subject of her next film, in the form of Ron “Stray Dog” Hall, a biker and Vietnam vet with a heart of gold and a head full of nightmares. Granik brings an un-showy, observational documentary style to this intimate look at Stray Dog’s life, navigating his trusty Harley along Missouri’s open road, with his new Mexican wife, Alicia, riding on the back of the bike. Read More: 'Winter's Bone' Writer/Director Writing A Treatment For A 'Pippi Longstocking' Movie “Stray Dog” is the story of cultures meeting, clashing, melding together, and being preserved.

There are only a select few actors in the entire world who can command $20 million for a movie role simply by being in front of the cameras when they start to roll, but that exclusive club gained a new member recently. Her name, you askc Jennifer Lawrence, of course. Didn't you read the headlinec According to a report at The Hollywood Reporter, Lawrence is set to pull in twenty rocks for her role opposite Chris Pratt (who's getting $10 million) in Passengers, a long-gestating sci-fi feature that ultimately landed at Sony. Keanu Reeves and Reese Witherspoon were once attached to star, then Reeves and Rachel McAdams, and now hot commodities Lawrence and Pratt are locked in as the leads, with Morten Tyldum (The Imitation Game) set to direct. Lawrence's negotiation strength has grown exponentially since picking up her first Oscar nomination for Winter's Bone and starring in both the X-Men and Hunger Games franchises. »

The most awesome female leads on Netflix

24 April 2015 2:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Unstoppable, ass-kicking heroines are still a minority in film and television, but we like to think that things are getting better. Women have been tearing it up in more and more in recent years in high profile Ya adaptations, superhero movies and gripping dramas from the likes of Jennifer Lawrence, Jessica Chastain and Tatiana Maslany.

Here are some of the most awesome female leads from television and film, all waiting to be watched on Netflix right now:

Katniss Everdeen (The Hunger Games: Catching Fire)

Young adult adaptations have been all the rage in recent years, with a gratifying number of talented young women taking the lead roles. Out of all of these, Jennifer Lawrence's Katniss has got to be our favourite.

Panem is a terrible place to live, and, on top of that, Katniss is handed some extra helpings of personal tragedy. And while not entirely comfortable or willing »

Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper Star in the Misbegotten Adaptation Serena

24 March 2015 9:00 PM, PDT | Village Voice | See recent Village Voice news »

Beware the Serena who is too serene. The title character in novelist Ron Rash's backwoods gothic is a decisive, collected queen bee who rules through retribution and murder. It's a great role for the Jennifer Lawrence of Winter's Bone, whose fierce intelligence, quiet strength, and deep understanding of rural life would make her a formidable lumber baroness. But that's not the Serena of Susanne Bier's adaptation — and not the Lawrence who embodies her. In Rash's novel, Serena arrives at a North Carolina train station on the way to her husband's logging camp in an oxford shirt, leather jodhpurs, and boots. Bier introduces Serena to her new home deep in the Smoky Mountains wearing a silk dress, fur-topped cloth coat, and T-strap heels. Lawrence maintains her »

Remembering Actress Wright: Made Oscar History in Unmatched Feat to This Day

4 March 2015 9:02 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Teresa Wright movies: Actress made Oscar history Teresa Wright, best remembered for her Oscar-winning performance in the World War II melodrama Mrs. Miniver and for her deceptively fragile, small-town heroine in Alfred Hitchcock's mystery-drama Shadow of a Doubt, died at age 86 ten years ago – on March 6, 2005. Throughout her nearly six-decade show business career, Wright was featured in nearly 30 films, dozens of television series and made-for-tv movies, and a whole array of stage productions. On the big screen, she played opposite some of the most important stars of the '40s and '50s. It's a long list, including Bette Davis, Greer Garson, Gary Cooper, Myrna Loy, Ray Milland, Fredric March, Jean Simmons, Marlon Brando, Dana Andrews, Lew Ayres, Cornel Wilde, Robert Mitchum, Spencer Tracy, Joseph Cotten, and David Niven. Also of note, Teresa Wright made Oscar history in the early '40s, when she was nominated for each of her first three movie roles. »

Report: Academy Old Guard wants to go backward with just 5 Best Picture nominees

4 March 2015 2:12 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The awards world was hit with a bombshell on Tuesday afternoon after news broke that a "significant faction" of the Academy wants the Best Picture field returned to just five nominees. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the old guard feels the current system has made the honor less prestigious and are using the low ratings of last month's telecast as proof that the expanded field doesn't work. The issue may be addressed as soon as the next Board of Governors meeting on March 24. Let me take a breath and prepare my reaction while you ponder this Hail Mary of a justification for a moment. (O.K., I'm ready.) Y'all crazy. First, let's discuss the "prestige" argument, shall we?   In 2009 the Best Picture field was increased to 10 nominees because of the horror (i.e. embarrassment) that the out-of-touch membership had snubbed popular and critically acclaimed blockbusters such as "Wall-e" and "The Dark Knight. »
