How Practical Magic Inspired 1 Woman to Murder Her Husband Irl

In 1998, Sandra Bullock and Nicole Kidman starred in the romantic comedy Practical Magic as Sally and Gillian Owens, two sisters who learned to cast spells at an early age while being raised by their crazy aunts, played by Dianne Wiest and Stockard Channing. Sally and Gillian are the bearers of a curse that has been in their family for several generations - the men they fall in love with are doomed to an untimely death, and they must come together and use their powers to fight the curse and find true love.

While tons of people watched movies like Practical Magic - as well as The Craft and Hocus Pocus - the majority of us were only inspired to dress up as witches for Halloween or play "Light as a Feather, Stiff as a Board" at slumber parties. But in 2000, one woman took away much more from the film -

Julia Garner (Netflix’s ‘Ozark’) just broke this 40-year Emmy trend in Best Drama Supporting Actress

Julia Garner (Netflix’s ‘Ozark’) just broke this 40-year Emmy trend in Best Drama Supporting Actress
Age may be just a number, but it affects one Emmy category in particular quite significantly over the past few decades. In order to win Best Drama Supporting Actress at the Emmys, there seems to be an unwritten age requirement of 30 or older, as we have seen over the past 40 years of the category’s history, with few exceptions like Katherine Heigl winning at 29 for “Grey’s Anatomy.” There were three actresses nominated this year who could have broken the trend as they were all in their early to mid-20s: Julia Garner, Sophie Turner and Maisie Williams. Garner ended up prevailing Sunday night — see full list of winners.

SEEHere are the 14 Netflix shows that won Emmys in 2019: ‘Ozark,’ ‘When They See Us,’ ‘Black Mirror’ …

Garner is now the youngest to win Best Drama Supporting Actress since Kristy McNichol, who won for “Family” in 1979, two days before her 17th birthday.

Nicole Kidman and Sandra Bullock learned their mystic practice from The Rules of Magic.

The 1998 film starred Sandra Bullock and Nicole Kidman as sorceress sisters on different paths. It was directed by Griffin Dunne.

Meryl Streep to Find Herself for Steven Soderbergh in HBO Max’s ‘Let Them All Talk’

Meryl Streep to Find Herself for Steven Soderbergh in HBO Max’s ‘Let Them All Talk’
Steven Soderbergh will continue to explore innovative distribution methods for his next project, “Let Them All Talk,” which has just landed at the upcoming HBO Max. The rom-com-sounding project — like “Wine Country” for film snobs? — seems suspiciously out of Soderbergh’s wheelhouse, and maybe that’s why it sounds so refreshing.

“Let Them All Talk” reunites Soderbergh with Meryl Streep, who stars in his 2019 film “The Laundromat,” which Netflix will take to the Venice and Toronto film festivals. “Let Them All Talk” will tell the story of an acclaimed author who takes a journey of self-discovery with old friends, bringing her nephew, played by Lucas Hedges, along for the trip. Hedges soon finds himself romantically involved with a fledgling literary agent, played by Gemma Chan. Candice Bergen and Dianne Wiest also star. The screenplay was penned by short story author and Deborah Eisenberg, who received a MacArthur Fellowship in 2009.
