Women of Netflix, Gabrielle Carteris on the Need for Female Mentorship in TV

In the first Emmy season since the #MeToo and Time’s Up movements, the conversation has shifted from being just about the shows that are eligible for awards to the conversations those behind-the-scenes are creating.

Emmy Predictions 2018: Outstanding Lead Actress in a Limited Series or TV Movie

Emmy Predictions 2018: Outstanding Lead Actress in a Limited Series or TV Movie
Last Year’s Winner: Nicole Kidman, “Big Little Lies

Still Eligible: No.

Hot Streak: A nominee from HBO or FX has won this category nine times in the last 10 years — Laura Linney’s victory for “The Big C: Hereafter” in 2013 is the lone standout.

Fun Fact: Helen Mirren has the most trophies in this category. She’s won four times, including two for the “Prime Suspect” series.

Can Laura Dern become an Emmy winner two years in a row? After snagging her first trophy last year for “Big Little Lies,” Dern seems fated to snag another nomination (at least) for her hailed turn in HBO’s “The Tale.” The film earned rave reviews out of Sundance before the premium cable network picked it up, and the beloved Dern is front-and-center in the landmark cinematic memoir.

But she’s not the only one earning early Emmy buzz. Jessica Biel generated a

‘Roxanne Roxanne’ and 5 More Netflix Originals Featuring Strong, Unique Female Voices

Hip-hop biopics are a Hollywood mainstay. But until now, the subgenre has largely favored male rappers (N.W.A., Tupac, Biggie, Eminem) and it’s been rare to find a movie that successfully cements the legacy of a female artist. Sundance hit “Roxanne Roxanne” changes that, bringing to life the story of ‘80s sensation Lolita Shante Gooden, better known as Roxanne Shante, hip-hop’s first commercially successful female artist.

Available to stream now on Netflix, the biopic offers an authentic portrayal of the talented Queens-bred teen’s unlikely rise to stardom and the inevitable hurdles she’s forced to overcome along the way. Featuring an acclaimed lead performance by newcomer Chanté Adams (who was awarded 2017 Sundance Special Jury Prize for Breakthrough Dramatic Performance), the film details Shante’s time living in the projects with her mom and three sisters and the life-changing invite she received from a neighbor to freestyle on one of his tracks.

Jessica Chastain has been cut from Xavier Dolan’s The Death and Life of John F. Donovan

Bad news for Jessica Chastain fans looking forward to Xavier Dolan’s The Death and Life of John F. Donovan, as the filmmaker has announced on Instagram that Chastain’s character has been completely cut from the film.

“What you need to hear from me is that Jessica Chastain’s character, after what was a long period of reflection, had to be cut from the film,” wrote Dolan. “It was an extremely difficult decision to make. I feel, toward Jessica, a very sincere love, and a great admiration. The decision was editorial and narrative, in that it has nothing to do with a performance, and everything to do with a character, and the compatibility of its storyline.”

Dolan went on to reveal that his initial cut of the movie was over four hours, and that the “villain subplot” featuring Chastain did not feel in fitting with the rest of the film.
