Outrage Watch: Don't tell women they don't get 'Goodfellas'

12 June 2015 2:54 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Welcome to Outrage Watch, HitFix's (almost) daily rundown of entertainment-related kerfuffles. Not anxious enough already? Get your fix of righteous indignation below, and stay posted for outrage updates throughout the week. New York Post movie critic Kyle Smith doesn't think women get "Goodfellas." They just can't wrap their silly little brains around it! Here he is claiming that the movie's "core" story-driver -- in his estimation, "ball-busting" ethics -- is entirely unrelatable to the female demographic: "Ball-busting means cheerfully insulting one another, preferably in the presence of lots of drinks and cigars and card games. ...Women (except silent floozies) cannot be present for ball-busting because women are the sensitivity police: They get offended, protest that someone’s not being fair, refuse to laugh at vicious put-downs. In the male fantasy, all of this is unforgivable — too serious, too boring. Deal another hand, pour another drink. ...To a woman, the 'GoodFellas' are lowlifes. »

RuPaul's Drag Race recap – season seven, episode seven: Snatch Game

14 April 2015 7:43 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The highlight of the series saw tantrums, ‘boy drag’ and surprising – and touching – solidarity between the queens

It’s the time of year all the good little boys and bad little girls have been waiting for: the Snatch Game! And, with Untucked banished to YouTube, it’s also long past time for the producers to show us the best of the meltdowns – and they delivered almost as much as Ginger Minj (as Adele) and Kennedy Davenport (as drag Little Richard) did on the Snatch Game. Who, as it turns out, snatched the first double win in herstory.

For superfans, RuPaul had a surprise up her sleeve: she brought in Tamar Braxton, who Roxxxy Andrews skewered in season five’s Snatch Game, as a judge, and she had some better jokes than some of the Dragsters. Besides Kennedy Davenport’s bravura performance in “boy drag”, some surprising (and not in a »

TWC set for $1bn TV division sale to ITV

7 April 2015 3:36 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

ITV is in talks to acquire the television division of The Weinstein Company for up to $950m, according to reports.

The deal would be the broadcaster’s biggest scripted acquisition to date and would give it a slice of rights to Netflix epic period drama Marco Polo and BBC1’s forthcoming remake of War and Peace, which The Weinstein Company is co-producing with Lookout Point, BBC Wales and BBC Worldwide.

ITV is reportedly set make an initial payment of $300 to $400m up-front for the production outfit, with the rest over the next few years – making the deal similar in structure to its acquisition of Talpa Media last month.

Any agreement would allow Harvey Weinstein and his brother Bob continue to oversee the operation, according to reports.

It would represent another boost for ITV Studios and would ramp up the amount of high-end scripted projects that it would produce, as well as opportunities for ITV Studios Global Entertainment »

U.K.’s ITV in Talks to Acquire Weinstein Co.’s TV Operation

6 April 2015 2:29 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

ITV has set its sights on acquiring Weinstein Co.’s TV division.

The U.K. giant is said to be in talks to buy out Weinstein Co.’s television operation for an estimated $300 million. ITV declined comment, while Weinstein Co. reps could not immediately be reached for comment.

If completed, the deal would include incentive- and performance-based payments over time that could greatly increase the value of the deal to Weinstein Co. It is expected that the company would continue to run autonomously under the direction of TWC co-chairman Harvey Weinstein and other execs.

ITV has been scooping up independent production companies left and right during the past few years as it looks to bolster its assets as a global content provider to complement its network presence in the U.K. Recent purchases at lofty valuations have included John de Mol’s Talpa Media, “Teen Wolf” producer Diga Vision and “Pawn Stars” producer Leftfield Pictures. »
