10 Things Every Celebrity Should Do When Making a Public Apology (Guest Column)
It’s true. PR people are often called “apologists.” I don’t bristle at that description, because apologizing and getting it right is a crucial skill set for today’s crisis manager.

Apologies are hard to do — they are humbling, irritating and often required during periods of high emotional pressure and agitation. I promise, we live in a very forgiving world, people want to forgive you. A solid apology allows that.

For public figures apologies may affect your image, your career options and of course your income, and I have always believed that our reputations are the most valuable things we own.

As we just saw with Kevin Hart and the Oscars, a botched apology can lose you a dream job if handled badly.

Don’t let the anger get the best of you. Get in touch with your most rational self, and get a team together to help you.

Lance Armstrong Shades Alex Rodriguez, I'm a Better Person Than You!
Lance Armstrong is still pissed that fellow admitted cheater Alex Rodriguez has essentially been forgiven by society while he's still considered a villain -- since Lance says he's done Way more to help people. "A-Rod didn't raise half a Billion dollars and try to save people's lives," Armstrong said on the "Today" show ... obviously referring to the work he did with the Livestrong foundation.  Armstrong then threw even more shade at the baseball player ... sarcastically saying,

Back to One, Episode 29: Leave No Trace Actor Ben Foster

With riveting performances in films such as Hell or High Water, The Messenger and 3:10 to Yuma, Ben Foster established himself as an intensely serious actor who goes all-in for a role. With this year’s Leave No Trace, Foster takes that same intensity and brilliantly turns it inward, portraying a laconic veteran who suffers from Ptsd and survives in the woods of Oregon with his teenage daughter, played by Thomasin McKenzie. Foster talks about working with McKensie to establish the connection they needed, why he took performance enhancing drugs to play Lance Armstrong, and the “emotional erectile disfunction” of over-directing.

Tiff Review: Billy Corben Gives the Mlb the ‘Cocaine Cowboys’ Treatment in ‘Screwball’

The documentary work of Billy Corben could be best be described like a story your colorful uncle tells you as a kid that’s just too weird to be true. Later you come to find out through multiple witnesses that he wasn’t lying–maybe just embellishing a few of the details. Corben and his Miami-based production company Rakontur don’t have to look far for great stories, choosing to highlight eccentric characters in Cocaine Cowboys, Square Grouper, The U, Dawg Fight, and their latest documentary, Screwball.

The film slices the Major League Baseball doping scandal through the lens of the colorful “Doctor” Tony Bosch, a self-proclaimed growth hacker who found himself as a human growth hormone concierge to those that seek out an edge. His clients include Miami bodybuilders, cops, and athletes in every level from high school to professional. The Mlb scandal essentially blows up when the organization

What it Was Like Inside a Nike Call Center After the Colin Kaepernick Ad Dropped

Anyone with a social media account saw the backlash this week against Nike’s decision to name Colin Kaepernick as the face of its new #JustDoIt campaign, but for one young black man working at a Nike call center, this week has been a much more frustrating experience.

As a pair of burning Nikes rode social media algorithms to near ubiquity, he fielded calls from some of the most ardent anti-kneeling activists, Trump supporters, and straight-up racists — all while being obligated to not talk back.

Think pieces spiked. The stock price dipped.

Time Trial review – the loneliness of the long-distance cyclist

This documentary about the return of road-racing champ David Millar, who was banned for doping, has an air of tight-lipped misery

There’s a painful, pentup anger and hurt at the heart of this documentary portrait of David Millar, the Scottish road-race cyclist and former Tour de France champ who was banned for doping in 2004 and, then became known as an anti-doping campaigner. follows Millar as he prepares to take one last crack at the Tour de France, this time as a “clean” rider, thus preparing us for a Hollywoodised story of redemption. But it ends in his dreams being brutally and anticlimactically crushed; his team-leader drops him because he is not performing well enough – an awful implied comment on his entire past record, and just the kind of career gravestone inscription he was hoping to avoid.

The film immerses us in the (to my amateur eye) rather joyless business

Lance Armstrong Settles Lawsuit With Usps, Seeks Sale of Austin Mansion

Lance Armstrong Settles Lawsuit With Usps, Seeks Sale of Austin Mansion
After years of legal wrangling, Lance Armstrong finally settled the $100 million fraud lawsuit filed against him by the U.S. Postal Service — he will pay $5 million to the federal government and another $1.65 million to cover legal costs incurred by former teammate and whistleblower Floyd Landis — and the sale of his Austin, Texas, mansion, now up for grabs at $7.5 million, would certainly help towards pulling together the funds required to pay his restitutions. The once globally celebrated pedal pusher, who had his seven Tour de France titles stripped from him and was barred for life from Olympic sports in 2012 after it was determined he’d used performance enhancing drugs, purchased the stately Central Austin spread for an unrecorded amount from longtime Democratic Party mover and shaker Ben Barnes in May of 2013, just months after he admitted in a televised interview with Oprah Winfrey he had, in fact, doped for all seven

2019 Oscars: Best Picture Predictions

Last year, Petty Jenkins’ DC comic-book movie “Wonder Woman” far exceeded expectations of quality, critical acclaim, and box office, but was shut out of the Oscar race. That won’t happen with Marvel’s “Black Panther,” which should ride the swells of worldwide acclaim and blockbuster status to become a Best Picture Oscar contender. But it will be a challenge for Disney to push this Marvel superhero success beyond the technical categories. They will need to convince critics, guilds, and Oscar voters that Ryan Coogler’s achievement rises to the level of art.

Comic-book epics rarely yield major Oscar nominations.Heath Ledger’s posthumously win as Supporting Actor for Christopher Nolan’s “Batman” entry “The Dark Knight” in 2008 was an anomaly; if superhero movies are in the running, it’s usually for VFX and technical nods. They even win some, especially with the original iteration, before it’s a full-fledged franchise.

Icarus documentary review: on athletes’ compromised wings

MaryAnn’s quick take… Perfectly illustrative of the serendipitous nature of documentary filmmaking as it pivots from a personal investigation of doping in sports into a thriller with global geopolitical ramifications. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(learn more about this)

Has there ever been a documentary filmmaker as fortuitous as Bryan Fogel? I don’t mean to denigrate his work by suggesting it was all just dumb luck that resulted in his debut documentary, Icarus, ending up as explosive as it does: he definitely picked a topic with lots of potential for unearthing explosive things. But he cannot possibly have anticipated what would actually happen… and, indeed, the film itself depicts this when we watch him onscreen, dumbfounded, watching news events unfold that not only directly impact the

Politics Impact Documentary Oscar Race, from ‘Icarus’ to ‘Last Men in Aleppo’

Politics Impact Documentary Oscar Race, from ‘Icarus’ to ‘Last Men in Aleppo’
The highest-profile documentary in this year’s Oscar race, “Icarus,” was picked up by Netflix at Sundance for $5 million. Netflix marketers adeptly surfed the news cycle to make sure their subscribers as well as Academy voters know that this movie is at the center of the Russian doping scandal.

With the Olympics front and center at the height of Oscar balloting, this movie could well be watched by the most people and squeak past its two main rivals, Cannes prize-winner Agnes Varda’s “Faces Places,” whose co-director Jr was profiled on “60 Minutes” Sunday, and “Last Men in Aleppo,” which has gotten a fresh wind of attention from the Muslim travel ban.

Icarus” director Bryan Fogel is an unexpected documentarian, to say nothing of an investigative journalist. He started out in Hollywood as a standup comic and actor, but found early success as the creator of a hit Coast Playhouse and Broadway play,
