What The Academy’s Movie Museum Really Needs: An Attic Full Of Backstory

What The Academy’s Movie Museum Really Needs: An Attic Full Of Backstory
From too many years in and around the movie business, I’ve consciously kept exactly one souvenir. It’s a smallish chip of concrete, about 3” x 4”, with some daubs of red and blue paint.

Ray Stark gave it to me not quite thirty years ago. He was just back from the Berlin Film Festival, which in February of 1990 had opened with Steel Magnolias, directed by Herbert Ross and produced by Stark.

The Berlin Wall had just come down. Stark said one of the Magnolias stars – Sally Field, Julia Roberts, Daryl Hannah and Olympia Dukakis attended, so it could have been any of them – had nicked this chunk off the tumbling wall in a fit of All-American, freedom-loving exuberance.

How could you throw away something like that? History. The movies. Stars. Ray Stark. All mixed up in one little piece of cement.

There might be other mementos around the house. An

Kennedy Center Honors Likes Sally Field and Linda Rondstadt.

by Nathaniel R

Right now we... no, always, we really like her. So to does the Kennedy Center Honors, which has selected the two-time Oscar winner and three-time Emmy winner as one of their five recipients of the prestigious honor for contribution to the American arts. In addition to Sally Field, this year's star-studded December gala will honor the R&b band Earth Wind & Fire, the program Sesame Street, the conductor/composer Michael Tilson Thomas, and singer Linda Rondstadt (who is having a very big year because an Oscar-hopeful doc about her The Sound of My Voice is also revving up for release). We tend to forget who the Kennedy Center has honored and who they haven't yet, so after the jump a list of all famous actors or director recipients to date...

Julia Roberts Reacts to Her Emmys Snub for Homecoming — and Reveals Her Sweet Phone Backdrop!

Julia Roberts Reacts to Her Emmys Snub for Homecoming — and Reveals Her Sweet Phone Backdrop!
Julia Roberts may not have been nominated for an Emmy Award but the actress is still keeping her sense of humor.

The 51-year-old actress starred in the Amazon Prime show Homecoming as Heidi Bergman, a caseworker who helps U.S. soldiers transition back to civilian life.

While Roberts didn’t get an Emmy nod, she didn’t let that ruin her day as she shared on her Instagram account Tuesday.

One is the loneliest number: Will ‘Game of Thrones’ join ‘Mad Men’ and ‘ER’ by winning Emmy for just 1 series regular?

One is the loneliest number: Will ‘Game of Thrones’ join ‘Mad Men’ and ‘ER’ by winning Emmy for just 1 series regular?
If the Emmys love you enough to give you Best Drama Series, you’d think they’d love you enough to shower you with acting awards, especially with an ensemble cast as deep as “Game of Thrones.” Alas, only one actor has ever won for the show: Peter Dinklage. This year is the last chance for his co-stars to join him in the winner’s circle. But even if no one does, “Thrones” will be in good company. “ER” and “Mad Men” couldn’t get more than one regular cast member to the podium either.

ER” was a pop cultural juggernaut in the 1990s, and it won Best Drama Series in 1996 for its second season. When all was said and done the show ran for a whopping 15 years and picked up a slew of nominations across acting categories, but the only time a regular cast member won was in the very first season,

‘From the Earth to the Moon’ Is an Epic Miniseries of the Past, and What’s Needed in the Future

When “From the Earth to the Moon” premiered in April 1998, it was a big deal for HBO. Still two months away from debuting “Sex and the City” and eight months out from “The Sopranos,” what was then still known as the Home Box Office network was making a big prestige play, with a miniseries about Nasa’s Apollo missions, in a genre dominated by broadcast. After all, broadcast networks reached more people, and only cable providers willing to pay a little extra could check out HBO’s biggest event to date.

Of course, that made it a pretty big deal for TV itself, as the shows dominating cultural conversations and the awards circuit started to shift away from the Big Four networks and into the cable space. There was no way of knowing this 21 years ago, but “From the Earth to the Moon” was an event nonetheless — costing $65 million, shooting on more than 100 locations,

Don’t underestimate ‘Sharp Objects’ star Eliza Scanlen at the Emmys, our top users warn

Don’t underestimate ‘Sharp Objects’ star Eliza Scanlen at the Emmys, our top users warn
Our Limited Series/TV Movie Supporting Actress Emmy odds currently have Eliza Scanlen in eighth place, but not so fast, say nine of our Top 24 users, who are urging you to keep a sharp lookout for the “Sharp Objects” breakthrough performer — so it’s time to go tell mama.

Scanlen was a real scene-stealer in the eight-part limited series, which ran from July to August last year and is based on Gillian Flynn’s novel of the same name. She played Amma Crellin, a well-behaved, innocent and somewhat helpless daughter of mother Adora (Patricia Clarkson) at home, but a mysterious roller-skating bad girl outside of it.

In comparatively sparse screen time, Scanlen crafted a performance that was layered and nuanced, haunting and unsettling, but most notably ominous until the very end when Amma dropped the biggest bombshell of them all: “Don’t tell mama.” This is when Camille (Amy Adams

Daniel Montgomery: Top 11 Emmy long shots I’m rooting for include ‘Sense8,’ ‘The Other Two,’ Indya Moore and more
The Emmy nominations will be announced on July 16, and as someone who has followed the awards for literally decades now, I’m nothing if not a patron saint of lost causes. I’ve been banging the drum for overlooked shows like “Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” “Gilmore Girls,” “The Wire” and “Looking” for years. So while I’ve been battered and bruised enough by those snubs not to get my hopes up too much anymore, here are the top 11 contenders I’m rooting for this year who are 100/1 long shots according to Gold Derby’s racetrack odds.

She’s a ‘Maniac’! Will Sally Field win another Emmy for playing multiple personalities?

She’s a ‘Maniac’! Will Sally Field win another Emmy for playing multiple personalities?
Why win an Emmy for one performance when you can win for two, or three, or four. Sally Field could do that this year with her role as a pop psychologist-turned-super computer in Netflix‘s surreal limited series “Maniac.” And it wouldn’t be the first time Field has won for taking on multiple personae.

One of Field’s most famous TV performances was as the title character in “Sybil,” a young woman who suffered from dissociative identity disorder and exhibited multiple personalities. She won Best Movie/Mini Actress in 1977, which was also her very first Emmy nomination, and the role has become shorthand for any actor who tries to court awards voters by playing multiple parts.

Fox Stage Productions Execs Exit After Disney Theatricals Takeover; ‘Mrs. Doubtfire’ Proceeds On Schedule

Disney’s $71.3 billion acquisition of Fox last March has definitely reached the stage stage: With Disney Theatrical Productions’ takeover of Fox Stage Productions, including the upcoming projects Mrs. Doubtfire and The Devil Wears Prada, Isaac Robert Hurwitz, senior VP for Fox Stage Productions, will leave the company today, according to a published report.

Kamala Harris Was Top Hollywood Draw In Q1

Kamala Harris Was Top Hollywood Draw In Q1
Before Joe Biden entered the 2020 presidential race, Kamala Harris was the clear favorite of Hollywood’s big spenders. First-quarter Federal Election Commission filings show that through March 31, she led all rivals in contributions from industry movers and shakers.

That dynamic might have changed when Biden joined the race on April 25 – after the Fec’s latest reporting deadline. The former vice president reportedly raised more than $700,000 at a May 8 Hollywood fundraiser – money that hasn’t shown up yet in the latest Fec reports. The fundraiser was attended by such luminaries as DreamWorks co-founder Jeffrey Katzenberg, producer and executive Peter Chernin, actor-filmmaker Rob Reiner and CBS Films president Terry Press.

Pete Buttigieg, another Hollywood favorite, also entered the race late – on April 15, though he received numerous campaign contributions after he formed an exploratory committee on January 23. Buttigieg had been scheduled for a six-event fundraising trip to Los Angeles this week – including one
