Alec Baldwin Races Back to the Hamptons International Film Festival After his SNL Stint as Trump
Huffington Post - 5 months
Alec Baldwin does a spot on, hilarious Donald Trump, grimacing his way through his current vulgarity against women. That's why SNL called him back to Manhattan this weekend even while he was hosting his baby, the Hamptons International Film Festival. By Sunday he was back east, at the annual chairman's reception, addressing the crowd including Alex Gibney, Mariska Hargitay, Bob Balaban and many others. This is, after all, his first year as co-chairman. And now he's announced that he wants to make a documentary about Peggy Siegal! In its 24th year, the festival thrives. On the second full day of screenings, panels, and other gatherings, the crowd was ebullient. Baldwin especially noted the 10th anniversary of David Nugent at the festival. The programmer has had a special knack for bringing top films to the festival; many have gone on to Oscars and other big awards. Some of the highlights of this year's festival are Manchester by the Sea, Lion, La La Land, Moonlight, 20th Century Wome ...

"Enough Said" Finds Depth Despite Stereotypes
Artinfo - over 3 years
"Enough Said" Finds Depth Despite Stereotypes Two small screen titans, Julia Louis-Dreyfus and the late James Gandolfini, team for a rueful — at times acerbic — comedy of mature love and love in “Enough Said,” writer-director Nicole Holofcener’s strongest movie since “Lovely & Amazing.” Back in Los Angeles after the Manhattan shenanigans of her 2010 “Please Give,” Holofcener posits Nina (Lous-Dreyfus) as a masseuse who makes house calls and Albert (Gandolfini) as a TV archivist in something like the Museum of Broadcasting. Both are divorced, both have college-age daughters poised to leave the nest for schools in New Yawk, and both (naturally, given their professions) are possessed with the gift of sitcom banter. Physically, Nina and Albert make an interesting pair. She’s a sad little figure, schlepping her massage table from one client to the next, as he peers out warily from behind his bulk. She’s hyper expressive. He’s twinkly and deadpan. She’s too nosy, he’s a bit of a ...

Vogue: Dress the Part: HBO's The Newsroom
Huffington Post - over 3 years
by Mark Guiducci, Vogue In one episode of The Newroom's first season, Maggie and Jim make a field trip to Flounce, a would-be Manhattan boutique where shopgirl Lisa, their roommate and love, respectively, is helping a customer find a dress for the Tony Awards. The News Night duo's utter indifference toward their friend's profession and pending commission on the sale -- save for Jim's incredulity at hearing one Alexander McQueen dress's five-figure price tag ("That's three times what I paid for my car!" he balks )-- underscores the characters' larger presumption that fashion is pretty much a nonissue for serious journalists like themselves. See more: 2013 Fashion Trends: Denim Guide And yet, while the women of The Newsroom are exchanging barbs at full-tilt Sorkinian speed, they find style choices to be nonetheless unavoidable (and often useful), as the offices of Atlantis Cable News simultaneously function as journalistic ground zero, corporate jungle gym, and an all- ...

Leigh Weingus: Hopes For 'The Newsroom' Season 2
Huffington Post - over 3 years
"The Newsroom" caught a lot of flack during its first season. Critics called it sexist, unrealistic and found fault in every corner of Aaron Sorkin's fantasy of behind-the-scenes life at a TV cable news channel. But the lights will be back on at Newsnight this Sunday, and before audiences or critics open fire on Sorkin's latest work, I'd like to take the time to point out what was actually great about Season 1. It's funny. In the pilot episode of "The Newsroom," Will McCavoy (Jeff Daniels) unleashed an insane tirade on an unassuming 20-year-old college student about America's faults, and it was great. And how about that time he ate a couple pot cookies on what turned out to be the day the U.S. Navy SEALs killed Bin Laden? Every time Sloan Sabbith (Olivia Munn) and MacKenzie McHale (Emily Mortimer) interact, it's delightful, and Jim (John Gallagher Jr.) and Maggie (Allison Pill) have a bunch of awkward conversations full of physical comedy, like when Maggie almost ga ...

JGL, Lucy Liu Invited To Join the Academy (Wait, They Weren't Already Members?)
MTV News - over 3 years
Today the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences invited 276 people from in front of and behind the camera to join the organization and, more importantly, vote annually for the Oscars. The list contains names of several great filmmakers and actors who broke through in the recent years, like "Looper" director Rian Johnson, Lena Dunham, and Jack Huston from "Boardwalk Empire," but several of the invitees are pretty surprising, not in that they were invited, but that it took so long. These are the actors we were surprised aren't already in the Academy — and how we imagine they reacted when they got the news.

Nicki Richesin: Interview with Emily Mortimer
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
Emily Mortimer is a terrific English actress who has shown her incredible emotional vulnerability in such films as Hugo, Lovely and Amazing, Shutter Island, and Lars and the Real Girl. Last year, she reinvented herself as gutsy executive producer MacKenzie McHale in Aaron Sorkin's The Newsroom on HBO. In perhaps her most stunning performance yet, Mortimer portrays Leonie Gilmour, the editor and mother of Isamu Noguchi, who travels the world in search of art and freedom. In the gorgeous new film Leonie, she bravely tells the story of this remarkable woman who nurtured her son's talent, as well as her own. Leonie opens in New York on March 22 at Clearview 1st and 62nd Cinemas. Nicki Richesin: I greatly enjoyed your brilliant portrayal of Leonie Gilmour in Leonie. In a sort of pivotal moment in the film you tell your son, "Your art will be your weapon. Your art will be your voice. There are no boundaries for an artist. No borders.

Tom Hooper: 'At 12, I swore I'd have my own film in the cinema'
Guardian (UK) - about 4 years
In 2011 that film was Oscar winner The King's Speech. Now he is Oscar-tipped again for Les Misérables. Here the 'tough guy' director, who made his first film while still at school, talks about the epic he sees as a timeless 'anthem for the dispossessed' It was almost two years ago that I first met Tom Hooper. He was with Colin Firth, and their film, The King's Speech – which Hooper directed and in which Firth starred – was weeks away from winning its Oscars. It was a heady occasion. An excitable Hooper did most of the talking (Firth detests interviews) and the film – about the struggle George VI had with his speech impediment when he came to the throne in 1936 – became the unlikely winner that delighted everyone who saw it: an impossible act to follow. And yet, today, Hooper is attempting to trump it on an epic scale. He has taken on Claude-Michel Schönberg and Alain Boublil's colossus of a musical, Les Misérables, which has been seen by 60 million people worldwide. And he has the b ...

Tolkien Estate Suing Warner Bros. For $80M Over Online Slot Machines—Here's Today's Buzz
Business Insider - over 4 years
Warner Bros. is being sued by the estate of "Lord of The Rings" author J.R.R. Tolkien in an $80 million lawsuit over online slot machines and other digital merchandise. It’s not the hugely successful movies they’re fighting over, it's merchandising that the Estate says was never anticipated as part of its original deal back in 1969. “Not only are gambling services outside the rights granted, but this exploitation of Tolkien’s well-loved work has offended and distressed Tolkien’s devoted fans, harming Tolkien’s legacy and reputation,” The Tolkien Estate said in a separate statement to Deadline. Japanese anime film "Evangelion: 3.0 You Can (Not) Redo," the third release from a popular franchise, pulled in $13.9 million over the weekend—making it Japan's biggest box office opening of the year. Director Martin Scorsese celebrated his 70th birthday Saturday night at The Spotted Pig in the West Village. Guests at the four-course dinner included Jonah Hill, Leonardo DiCaprio, Daniel ...

Inside The Weird World Of Fake 'Newsroom' Twitters
Huffington Post - over 4 years
The night that HBO's drama "The Newsroom" premiered, comedian Patton Oswalt Tweeted a call to arms for would-be satirists to take aim at one of the show's particurly kooky characters: Within days, multiple accounts had been created for just about every character, from Waterston's Charlie Skinner to Jeff Daniels' Will McAvoy. The various characters constantly talk to each other and to fans -- creating a thriving ecosystem of political and social critique that's even more lively than the one on "The Newsroom." Of course, these aren't the first fictional Twitter accounts: The genre is venerable enough warrant its own category at the Shorty Awards, and Twitter has a page stating its policy on parody accounts. These also aren't the first fake Twitter accounts based on characters created by Aaron Sorkin -- the characters from "Studio 60 on The Sunset Strip," notably, made their way on to the site thanks to dedicated fans.
