2016 SAG Award Nominations Are Full Of Surprises, Including 'Trumbo' And 'Beasts Of No Nation'
Huffington Post - about 1 year
It's a big week for awards season: On Wednesday, the Screen Actors Guild unveiled the nominees for its annual awards, and the Hollywood Foreign Press Association is set to announce the Golden Globes shortlist the following morning. In a year with few clear front-runners, these awards will crystallize the Oscar derby that began in earnest around Labor Day and has grown increasingly murky ever since.  Or so one would think. Instead, the SAG Awards threw us even more curveballs. Purported pacesetter "Spotlight" received less attention than expected, with Michael Keaton and Mark Ruffalo left out of the supporting-actor field. "The Martian," "Joy" and "The Hateful Eight" came up empty-handed, and "Mad Max: Fury Road" only managed a stunt-ensemble nomination. Helen Mirren made off with two surprise nods, Sarah Silverman's dramatic indie "I Smile Back" scored Best Actress over the likes of Jennifer Lawrence and Lily Tomlin, and "Straight Outta Compton" edged out hefty compe ...

12 Things 'Now And Then' Taught Us About Womanhood, 20 Years Later
Huffington Post - over 1 year
Samantha, Roberta, Chrissy and Teeny. To many women who grew up during the '90s, these four names immediately conjure up images of the above movie poster, first kisses and the nostalgia of childhood best friendship. When it comes to magnum opuses of friendship, men have 1986's "Stand by Me." Women have the 1995 cult classic "Now and Then." Though it was initially panned by critics, the movie about four young women coming of age during the summer of 1970 became beloved by a generation of young women in the mid-'90s. I for one owned it on VHS and watched it more times than I can remember, always rewinding and watching again during the scene where young Roberta (Christina Ricci) and Scott Wormer (Devon Sawa, a.k.a. your imaginary childhood boyfriend) share an awkward first kiss. The movie's opening shows Demi Moore as grown-up Samantha, driving back to her hometown in Indiana, with a car full of cigarette butts and cassette tapes. "Thomas Wolfe once said, 'You can't go home again. ...

Christina Ricci Talks 'Buffalo '66' And 'Raving Lunatic' Vincent Gallo
Huffington Post - almost 2 years
The tale of a recently released prisoner who kidnaps a young girl and passes her off as his wife, Vincent Gallo's 1998 film "Buffalo '66" is still regarded as one of the greatest independent films ever made. But making it was quite the challenge, star Christina Ricci told HuffPost Live on Thursday. When host Ricky Camilleri asked about "Buffalo '66" and described Gallo as "exacting," "precise" and "demanding," Ricci made what was clearly a conscious decision to play nice. "Those are positive spins to put on it," she said. "That's a nice way to put it." Gallo has made it clear in the past there was no love lost between he and Ricci. Two years after the film's release, he described the actress as "an ungrateful c--t" who was "basically a puppet. I told her what to do, and she did it." Ricci told HuffPost Live the entire experience of shooting the movie was a challenge, from Gallo's on-set conduct to the nature of the production itself. She explained: That was very confusing b ...

Marc Jacobs wows NY crowd with eccentric elegance
Yahoo News - about 2 years
American designer Marc Jacobs provided a dazzling finale to New York Fashion Week on Thursday with a collection of severe but eccentric elegance that followed cashmere cool from Ralph Lauren and urban eroticism from Calvin Klein. Jacobs invited film director Sofia Coppola, Blondie frontwoman Deborah Harry and actress Christina Ricci to an intimate show staged to look like a boudoir with a painted couch as a backdrop and hanging ropes. The designer, considered perhaps the most innovative of his generation, was reportedly inspired by Diana Vreeland, the late fashion editor, who was also an American debutante and who trained once as a ballet dancer. Earlier in the day, rapper Kanye West sat front row at Ralph Lauren chewing gum in a bomber jacket as the 75-year-old designer crafted his classic American look in sophisticated, elegant browns and grays.
