Patricia Arquette Reveals She’s Still Being Offered Unequal Pay and ‘Bullshit Deals,’ Even After Winning the Oscar

Patricia Arquette Reveals She’s Still Being Offered Unequal Pay and ‘Bullshit Deals,’ Even After Winning the Oscar
When Patricia Arquette won the Best Supporting Actress Oscar for her role in Richard Linklater’s 2014 film “Boyhood,” she spent her time on stage advocating to end the gender pay gap in industries all over the world. “To every woman who gave birth, to every taxpayer and citizen of this nation, we have fought for everybody else’s equal rights,” the actress said. “It’s time to have wage equality once and for all. And equal rights for women in the United States of America.”

Arquette’s speech drew cheers from the audience, from Meryl Streep to Jennifer Lawrence, but in the years since it hasn’t solved her own battle against the gender pay gap in Hollywood. Arquette recently spoke to The Daily Beast to promote her role in the Showtime limited series “Escape at Dannemora” and revealed she is still being offered jobs where her salary does not equal her male co-stars.

‘Leave No Trace’ DVD Review

Stars: Ben Foster, Thomasin McKenzie, Jeffery Rifflard, Derek John Drescher, Michael Draper, Peter Simpson, Dana Millican, Alyssa McKay, Ryan Joiner, Michael J. Prosser, Jeff Kober, Spencer S. Hanley | Written by Debra Granik, Anne Rosellini | Directed by Debra Granik

Will (Foster) and his teenage daughter, Tom (McKenzie), have lived off the grid for years in the forests of Portland, Oregon. When their idyllic life is shattered, both are put into social services. After clashing with their new surroundings, Will and Tom set off on a harrowing journey back to their wild homeland.

Debra Granik’s Leave No Trace is a masterstroke of stoic intensity and a boiling pot of emotional performance from the two leads: in the ever so cleverly charismatic and convincing Ben Foster as Will, and the outstanding role of Tom by the reserve and emotionally compelling Thomasin McKenzie.

Granik continues her trend throughout her filmography – much like her

Susanne Bier To Direct Nicole Kidman In "The Undoing" at HBO

Susanne Bier To Direct Nicole Kidman In
Danish filmmaker Susanne Bier has bounced back in a big way. Her career came into sharp focus in the early aughts, but was minted later that decade when “After the Wedding” (2006; it made Mads Mikkelsen a household name) and “In a Better World” (2010) both scored Academy Award nominations for Best Foreign Language Film (“In A Better World” would win). She had done Hollywood in between (the underrated “Things We Lost In The Fire”; 2007), but she was poised for huge things when Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper had agreed to star in “Serena” just as both their stars were going supernova (Lawrence was already an Academy Award winner before the film’s release).

The first six to accomplish this are:

1. Helen Hayes, Best Actress for “The Sin of Madelon Claudet” (1931/32) and Best Supporting Actress for “Airport” (1970)

2. Ingrid Bergman, Best Actress for “Gaslight” (1944) and “Anastasia” (1956), and Best Supporting Actress for “Murder on the Orient Express” (1974)

Amandla Stenberg Isn’t Just Looking for ‘Multidimensional Black Characters’ to Play, She’s Creating Them — IndieWire Honors

Amandla Stenberg Isn’t Just Looking for ‘Multidimensional Black Characters’ to Play, She’s Creating Them — IndieWire Honors
On November 1, the 2018 IndieWire Honors ceremony will celebrate seven filmmakers and actors for their achievement in creative independence. We’re showcasing their work with new interviews this week.

Less than a decade into her career, actress Amandla Stenberg has already enjoyed at least two breakthrough moments, from her heartbreaking turn as the ill-fated young tribute Rue in “The Hunger Games” to her life-changing leading role in the recent big screen adaptation of “The Hate U Give.” Based on Angie Thomas’ timely bestseller of the same name, George Tillman Jr.’s film is built on Stenberg’s capable shoulders, casting the actress as Starr Carter, a clever teenager forced to live in two very different worlds, both of which come crashing down after a horrific crime.

“She’s allowed to be so multidimensional in a way most black characters are not,” the actress said in a recent interview with IndieWire. “She is so nuanced and real.

Jennifer Lawrence’s Excellent Cadaver: why do stars give their companies weird names?

The Oscar-winning actor has launched a production company with an odd name – and she’s not the first star to do so

Big news out of Hollywood, as Deadline reports that Jennifer Lawrence’s production company Excellent Cadaver has just signed a first-look development deal with …

Hang on, Jennifer Lawrence’s production company is called what? Excellent Cadaver? Where the hell did that come from? Either Jennifer Lawrence is inexplicably the world’s biggest fan of the made-for-tv 1999 Chazz Palminteri-starring HBO mob movie Excellent Cadavers – which, given that reviews from the time called it “mundane” and “pedantic”, doesn’t seem particularly likely – or she’s secretly been some kind of expert-grade corpse connoisseur all these years without telling anybody. Maybe we’ll never know.

Why the Child-Star Curse Was No Match for Kiernan Shipka

Why the Child-Star Curse Was No Match for Kiernan Shipka
Hollywood is littered with the wreckage of promising careers and unmet potential. For every young talent like Jennifer Lawrence, who left high school to pursue acting, secured a full-time role in a TV show at 16 and won an Oscar at 22, there are a thousand people you've never heard of. Or, there are countless kids who did secure that plum role—but then that was it, for whatever reason. Kiernan Shipka doesn't plan on being one of those countless others and, so far, she's showing all the telltale signs of being an enduring presence on screens of all sizes for years to come. "I really just sort of experienced life to the fullest," she told E! News in September. "I took a...

Timothee Chalamet (‘Beautiful Boy’) would be the 2nd youngest Best Supporting Actor Oscar winner

Timothee Chalamet (‘Beautiful Boy’) would be the 2nd youngest Best Supporting Actor Oscar winner
Last season, 22-year-old Timothée Chalamet could have become the youngest Best Actor winner in Academy Award history for his breakthrough performance in Luca Guadagnino’s “Call Me By Your Name.” Even though Gary Oldman (“Darkest Hour”) prevailed, Chalamet is still the third youngest Best Actor nominee, just behind Jackie Cooper and Mickey Rooney.

This year, however, he could become the second youngest Best Supporting Actor winner for his performance in Felix Van Groeningen‘s biographical drama “Beautiful Boy.”

Based on the memoirs “Beautiful Boy” by David Sheff and “Tweak” by his son Nic Sheff, the film follows Nic (Chalamet), a teenager who leads a seemingly perfect life, but in reality struggles with an addiction to crystal meth, threatening to destroy his and his family’s entire lives. His father David (Steve Carell) watches his son as he slips into addiction and does everything in his power to prevent his son

‘Utoya – July 22′ Review

Stars: Andrea Berntzen, Aleksander Holmen, Elli Rhiannon Müller Osborne, Jenny Svennevig, Solveig Koløen Birkeland, Ingeborg Enes Kjevik, Sorosh Sadat, Brede Fristad, Aleksander Holmen, Karoline Schau | Written by Siv Rajendram Eliassen, Anna Bache-Wiig | Directed by Erik Poppe

Directed by Erik Poppe, this award-winning Norwegian drama recreates the events of the Utoya massacre in a single 72 minute take. Presenting the story entirely from the point of view of one of the victims, it’s a terrifying and horrifically immersive experience that is utterly devastating.

On 22 July, 2011, Norway suffered two tragic terrorist attacks, both committed by one man, a right-wing extremist. The first forms a prologue of sorts here, as CCTV footage shows the car bomb explosion in Oslo that killed eight people. Two hours later, the perpetrator travelled to the island of Utoya and opened fire on a group of defenceless teenagers at a socialist youth summer camp, killing 69 people in the course of 72 minutes.

20 Mistakes Fans Completely Missed In The Hunger Games Movies

The Hunger Games premiered in 2012 to a wide commercial success, jumpstarting what would become the next big young adult novel franchise to hit the big screen. Following in the footsteps of Harry Potter and Twilight, there were many other Hunger Games installments, such as Catching Fire, Mockingjay – Part 1, and Mockingjay – Part 2. Collectively, the films grossed nearly $3 billion, and turned Jennifer Lawrence into an A-List movie superstar.

In hindsight, it is easy to think of The Hunger Games franchise as a big-budget enterprise that mirrors the likes of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the DC Extended Universe. However, that was not always the case. As a matter of fact, the first Hunger Games film was made for $78 million, which is a relatively low amount when compared to other CGI-heavy action properties. After the success of the first installment, Catching Fire was budgeted at $130 million, a significant upgrade that is reflected in the film.

How the 2019 Best Actress Oscar race could mirror 1987: Is Lady Gaga this year’s Cher?

How the 2019 Best Actress Oscar race could mirror 1987: Is Lady Gaga this year’s Cher?
“I feel like Cher in that John Patrick Shanley film ‘Moonstruck’ right now,” proclaimed Lady Gaga upon accepting her Golden Globe for “American Horror Story: Hotel” in 2016. Little did she know how true that may be just three years later. Gaga has earned some of the best reviews of her career for playing Ally, a singer on the rise, in “A Star Is Born.” This attention has translated into early Oscar buzz for 2019, with some declaring her the frontrunner to win Best Actress even over much more seasoned actresses. One of those thespians is Glenn Close, who may see a bit of history repeating 31 years after losing for one of her most iconic roles.
