Roseanne Barr Timeline: From the National Anthem to Twitter, How She’s Always Courted Controversy

Roseanne Barr Timeline: From the National Anthem to Twitter, How She’s Always Courted Controversy
To know Roseanne Barr is to know controversy. The outspoken comic has been a firebrand since the moment she stepped on the scene in the late 1980s, and the success of “Roseanne” perhaps only heightened her eccentric approach to the world.

But in recent years, Barr’s behavior has been amplified by social media, and she appears to have been caught under the spell of crazy, irrational conspiracy theories and lies. That’s led to plenty of offensive statements and combative behavior against anyone who challenges her online.

ABC had hoped that Barr was now in check. She was on her best behavior at the Television Critics Association press tour in January, and Disney/ABC TV president Ben Sherwood even felt comfortable enough to tease Barr’s outspokenness a few weeks ago at the network’s upfront presentation. When Barr joked that Sherwood was “the guy responsible for most of my tweets,

Roseanne Review: ABC Revival Is (Almost) a Home Run

First the good news: ABC’s Roseanne revival (premiering with back-to-back episodes on Tuesday, March 27, at 8/7c) is pretty fantastic. In fact, the second episode — which largely revolves around Roseanne and Dan coming to terms with gender-fluid grandson Mark’s bold fashion choices — ranks among the show’s best ever. Brimming with acid-tinged one-liners, delivered by deeply flawed characters who are just trying to do the right thing, the smart, bold and riotous half-hour serves as a glorious reminder of why the original Roseanne was a groundbreaking TV phenomenon in the first place.

Now the bad news — and yes, it

Oscars flashback: Meryl Streep exclaims ‘Holy mackerel’ winning her 1st Oscar for ‘Kramer vs. Kramer’ [Watch]

Oscars flashback: Meryl Streep exclaims ‘Holy mackerel’ winning her 1st Oscar for ‘Kramer vs. Kramer’ [Watch]
Believe it or not, long before a record-shattering 21 Oscar nominations, there was a time when Meryl Streep was not the queen of the movies. After finishing at Yale Drama School in the 1970s, Streep found steady work on stage and television before her breakout role in 1978’s Best Picture Oscar winner, “The Deer Hunter.” That film brought Streep her first Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actress (and first loss) for her performance as Linda, the fiancee of a troubled Vietnam vet (Christopher Walken in an Oscar-winning performance).

The following year she starred in three major films: as the love interest of Alan Alda in “The Seduction of Joe Tynan;” as Woody Allen’s lesbian ex-wife in “Manhattan;” and as the troubled Joanna Kramer opposite Dustin Hoffman in “Kramer vs Kramer.” It was that latter role that brought her a first-ever win at the Academy Awards. The first words exclaimed by Streep were “Holy mackerel!

Meryl Streep in ‘Kramer vs. Kramer’: A look back at her first Oscar win and the competition

Meryl Streep in ‘Kramer vs. Kramer’: A look back at her first Oscar win and the competition
This article marks Part 2 of the 21-part Gold Derby series analyzing Meryl Streep at the Oscars. Join us as we look back at Meryl Streep’s nominations, the performances that competed with her, the results of each race and the overall rankings of the contenders.

In 1978, Meryl Streep, already renowned for her work on the New York stage, grabbed the attention of moviegoers across the country with her Oscar-nominated turn in the Best Picture champ “The Deer Hunter.” That year, however, would seem minor in comparison to what was on the horizon in 1979.

Streep was about to work with three of the decade’s hottest directors – Woody Allen, at his most in-demand after “Annie Hall” (1977) and “Interiors” (1978); Robert Benton, whose “The Late Show” (1977) was a big hit; and Jerry Schatzberg, who won critical acclaim with “The Panic in Needle Park” (1971) and “Scarecrow” (1973).

The resulting trio of Allen’s “Manhattan,” Benton’s “Kramer vs.

Woody Allen’s 57-Year Personal Archive Has Been Opened, and It’s ‘Full of Misogyny’ and an ‘Obsession With Young Girls’

The Washington Post freelance writer Richard Morgan has become the first person to read the entirety of Woody Allen’s personal archive, which has been kept at Princeton University’s Firestone Library since 1980. The archive includes screenplay drafts and notes and is described by Morgan as being Allen’s “56-box, 57-year personal archives.”

One draft found in the collection is for a film called “The Filmmaker,” which would’ve starred Allen as a Fellini-inspired porn director who falls madly in love with a younger woman.

The Inconceivable Question of Why Louis C.K. Would Make 'I Love You, Daddy' in the First Place

The Inconceivable Question of Why Louis C.K. Would Make 'I Love You, Daddy' in the First Place
On Thursday, The Orchard announced it would be "giving careful consideration" to the release of Louis C.K.'s film, I Love You, Daddy, in the wake of allegations of sexual misconduct against the comedian. It took less than 24 hours of consideration for the distributor to scrap it altogether. Sure, you could do like Ridley Scott and recast C.K. with Christopher Plummer, but Plummer can't rewrite and reshoot the entire movie, too.

That the movie should never see the light of day is only a shame for one reason: the actresses, especially -- Chloë Grace Moretz, Edie Falco, Pamela Adlon, Rose Byrne -- give great performances. But also, there is no reason this movie ever should have happened. Considering C.K. is (or was) one of the most successful working standups and a six-time Emmy winner still extolled for his series, Louie, he seemingly could have made any movie he wanted. (Considering he self-funded

Woody Allen’s New Film Includes a Sexual Relationship Between an Adult and a 15-Year-Old Girl — Report

Woody Allen’s New Film Includes a Sexual Relationship Between an Adult and a 15-Year-Old Girl — Report
Woody Allen’s new movie, “Wonder Wheel,” doesn’t open until December, but he’s already at work on his next project starring Elle Fanning, Jude Law, Selena Gomez, Rebecca Hall, and Timothée Chalamet. The movie is reportedly called “A Rainy Day in New York,” and its story could end up resulting in another controversy for the director. Page Six reports the movie stars Law as a middle-aged married man who “makes a fool of himself over every ambitious starlet and model.” The 44-year-old character allegedly has a sexual relationship with a 15-year-old “concubine,” played by Fanning.

According to Page Six: “In the scene, the so-called concubine acknowledges her relationship with Law’s much-older character, but then protests that she is 21 years old. After a discussion about his infidelity, Fanning’s character then asks Law, ‘Were all these women for pleasure, or were you researching a project?'”

All of Ernest Hemingway House's 54 Famous, Six-Toed Cats Accounted for After Hurricane Irma Batters the Florida Keys

All of Ernest Hemingway House's 54 Famous, Six-Toed Cats Accounted for After Hurricane Irma Batters the Florida Keys
“My grandfather’s famous quote was ‘courage is grace under pressure,’ but I think this is taking it too far,” said Mariel Hemingway when she heard that the manager of her family’s historic home, the Hemingway House in Key West, Florida, had decided to stay with the 54 cats that live on the property despite the massive approaching storm, Hurricane Irma.

The house, which now operates as a museum, was built in 1849 and completed in 1851. Hemingway moved into it in 1931, and he lived there until 1940. The house is recognized as a National Historic Landmark and Literary Landmark by the U.

How Elle Fanning and Selena Gomez Should Handle the Woody Allen Backlash Coming Their Way

How Elle Fanning and Selena Gomez Should Handle the Woody Allen Backlash Coming Their Way
When word came down that Woody Allen’s next film would star actress of the moment Elle Fanning, beloved singer-turned-actress Selena Gomez, and “Call Me By Your Name” star Timothée Chalamet, the responses were — like any news involving the controversial filmmaker — divided.

Allen has always been a fan of fresh young talent, casting Diane Keaton, Mariel Hemingway, and Scarlett Johansson in important early roles. As prolific as he is provocative, the list of Hollywood actors he has worked with feels longer than those he hasn’t. More recently, he has a knack for picking promising young stars when they are most in demand, such as Jesse Eisenberg, Evan Rachel Wood, Ellen Page, and Kristin Stewart.

Manhattan review – Woody Allen's masterpiece still shimmers with honesty

Nearly four decades on, Allen’s lustrously shot comedy is as compelling as ever, its big-hitting scenes and performances sitting alongside numerous low-key gems

Woody Allen’s middle-period masterpiece from 1979, co-written with Marshall Brickman and shot in lustrous black and white by cinematographer Gordon Willis, now gets a cinema rerelease.

It’s the film that, apart from everything else, invented the romcom cliche of the last-minute rush to the airport. Dismayed by a lack of cabs in the dense traffic – casually superb location shooting – Allen’s unemployed TV producer Isaac runs desperately to his ex-girlfriend’s apartment to tell her how he feels, finding her in the lobby with her bags packed, ready to head out to JFK for a trip to London. This is Tracy (Mariel Hemingway), who wryly tells him she just turned 18 and that she is now “legal” – though she was “legal” at 17. However we feel about this scene now,

Watch: New Trailer for 4K Re-Release of Woody Allen's 'Manhattan'

"He adored New York City... He romanticized it all out of proportion." Park Circus and MGM have unveiled a brand new trailer for the 4K digital re-release this year of Woody Allen's seminal romantic comedy classic Manhattan, which first opened in 1979. It didn't win any Oscars, but it did win Best Film at the BAFTAs. Woody Allen also stars in this, along with Diane Keaton, Michael Murphy, Mariel Hemingway, Meryl Streep, Anne Byrne, Karen Ludwig and Michael O'Donoghue. The 96-minute film has been carefully restored to 4K, and will be released in NYC first, which is fitting considering it's all about a love for NYC. Ebert wrote in a review from 2001 that "it's more subtle, more complex, and not about love, but loss." Here's the new re-release trailer for Woody Allen's Manhattan, direct from YouTube (via Indiewire): In Manhattan, Isaac Davis is a divorced writer of TV shows unhappy with his job.

‘Manhattan’ Returns in Trailer for Theatrical Restoration of Woody Allen Classic

It’s been a handful of films since Woody Allen stayed put in the city where he made his name. This summer’s Wonder Wheel will finally mark his return to the Big Apple with a film set solely there, but for those that want to revisit one of his most acclaimed films, the opportunity will arrive shortly. One can not neglect to mention Manhattan when it comes to both the greatest NYC-set movies and the best Woody Allen movies, and now it’s been given a 4K restoration.

Ahead of its 12-day return to theaters at Film Forum starting early next month, Park Circus have released a new trailer, which sparkles with Gordon Willis‘ incredible cinematography, as well as includes some of the film’s most memorable scenes — and, of course, ending with that shot.

Entertainment Feature: Top 20 Celebrity Portraits of 2016, By Photographer Joe Arce

Chicago – The year 2016 was a dangerous one to be a famous person. In the past twelve months, one dozen of my former photo subjects passed away, celebrities who at one time or another famously posed for my lens. However, on a positive note, at least photos are forever. Or to quote the immortal words of Pee Wee Herman – “Why don’t you take a picture, it will last longer!”

The ranking of the portraits are based on a combination of the star power wattage of the subjects, the artistic results and the difficulty of landing the quarry…for those budding smart-phone-celebrity-stalkers who may wish to play along at home. So without further adieu, I present my top 20 celebrity portraits of 2016.
