‘Manchester by the Sea’ writer-director Kenneth Lonergan reacts to the film’s Oscar nominations

“It’s always a surprise when things turn out the way you hope they’re going to.”
Longergan says he will try to rustle up a few friends and his daughter this evening. Kenneth Lonergan was not watching the announcement of the Oscar nominations on Tuesday morning. “Maybe we’ll have a little celebration,” he says. I think that’s something everyone can relate to.” He laughs. “I wasn’t sure people were going to want to go to a movie that is looking at such a rough side of life. It’s really wonderful. “I’m just glad people are liking the movie. While Manchester by the Sea,   which   he wrote and directed, received six nominations   — including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Original Screenplay, Best Actor for Casey Affleck, Best Supporting Actor for Lucas Hedges and Best Supporting Actress for Michelle Williams — he was waking up his daughter to go to school. This seems entirely typical of the low-key writer/director/playwright, who later learned the news. There’s a tragedy at its center, but the film — much like Lonergan’s previous works, You Can Count on Me and Margaret —   is filled with humor and human kindness. It’s a long way from Cape Ann.”
Manchester by the Sea, starring Casey Affleck as a handyman who must return to his hometown to take care of his teenage nephew after his brother dies,   is a poignant, quiet drama full of everyday moments. “Maybe we’ll have some champagne.”

Show Full Article More and more I realize the movie is looking at characters who are doing everything they can to show up for each other, to be there for each other. And I’m really happy for the cast. “I’ve been surprised by the whole experience,”   Lonergan says. “It feels really great,” Lonergan says.

Paris Jackson opens up about life with Michael: ‘He would cry to me at night’

When discussing her father’s death, she says that during rehearsals for his   comeback performances at London’s O2 Arena, he looked “exhaust[ed]. And if they did, the entire perception of him would be completely and forever changed.’”
She also discusses her childhood and how she interacted with her father.   “My dad would cry to me at night,” she tells Rolling Stone. In a new cover story for   Rolling Stone, Jackson reveals intimate details of her childhood at Neverland Ranch, her reaction to the allegations of molestation against her father, and the circumstances that led to his sudden passing at age 50. “Nobody but my brothers and I experienced him reading A Light in the Attic to us at night before we went to bed. Paris Jackson spoke at length for the first time about her late father Michael Jackson and what life has been like being the daughter of one of the most famous artists in the world. To see my entire world in pain, I started to hate the world because of what they were doing to him. And for me, he was the only thing that mattered. It was a setup. …They drain them dry and work them to death.” (An AEG rep declined to comment.)
According to the 18-year-old,   it’s “obvious”   that   her dad’s death was a murder. …And at some point he was like, ‘They’re gonna kill me one day.’ …’It sounds like a total conspiracy theory and it sounds like bullshit, but all real fans and everybody in the family knows it. “Picture your parent crying to you about the world hating him for something he didn’t do. “‘He would drop hints about people being out to get him. AEG Live does not treat their performers right. …Nobody experienced him being a father to them. For that, she says, she blames promoter AEG Live and her father’s doctor Conrad Murray. I’m like, ‘How can people be so mean?’”
 
For more on Paris Jackson, head over to   Rolling Stone. It was bullshit.’” She says “a lot of people” wanted him dead. Asked about the molestation allegations against her father — he was acquitted of all charges — Jackson says her father was innocent. Show Full Article

Is ‘Riverdale’ the new ‘Gossip Girl’?

“It reminds me of Gossip Girl —   it’s nighttime soaps aimed at the younger audience, but the older woman or guy can watch along too with the snarkiness.”

Viola Davis becomes first black actress to earn 3 Oscar nominations

Viola Davis just earned her place in the record books. Octavia Spencer earned her second Best Supporting Actress nomination for Hidden Figures, after winning that same category five years earlier for The Help. The Rhode Island native, who overcame an impoverished childhood to become one of Hollywood’s most respected stars, earned her first Best Supporting Actress nomination in 2008 for Doubt, and a Best Actress nomination in 2011 for The Help. (Wilson, who wrote the screenplay before he died in 2005, was posthumously nominated for Best Adapted Screenplay.)
Davis was previously tied with Whoopi Goldberg for Oscar nominations, with The View co-host first nominated for Best Actress in 1986 for The Color Purple, and later bringing home the Best Supporting Actress award in 1991 for Ghost. She has yet to bring home the coveted trophy, but is considered a frontrunner after winning a Golden Globe for the role earlier this month. This article originally appeared on PEOPLE.com. Thank you, Denzel, for being at the helm!” she said of her nomination, per the Los Angeles Times. The latest Oscar slate also acknowledged other actresses of color.

Andrew Garfield on his first Oscar nomination: ‘I’m sure there’s been a mistake.’

“Obviously now we are in a situation where we have a president who I feel is embodying the opposite of those virtues and I think it’s heartening that people are responding with this kind of open-heartedness, this longing for healing, this remembrance that we are all one and the same.”
Garfield is equally energized by the Oscar nomination for   Hacksaw Ridge   director Mel Gibson, a man who had been ostracized by the industry a decade ago after he was arrested for driving under the influence and recorded making anti-Semitic comments. It’s a lovely thing that all that hard work, patience and humility has been seen by other people. “It’s lovely and so cool. The actor was recognized for his portrayal of WWII hero Desmond Doss in Hacksaw Ridge, which landed six nominations in total on Tuesday   including best picture and best director. “I think it’s awesome and wonderful,” Garfield   says. I think people are resonating with that and with the virtues Desmond embodied: compassion, love, empathy and humility — really true, sincere humility,” he says. “Desmond wasn’t a soldier for any specific country, actually, because he treated both enemy soldiers and his own. “He’s done a lot of work within himself and a lot of healing. Andrew Garfield had just begun his second day of rehearsals for Angels in America in London when his agent called him screaming during his lunch break to give him the news of his first Oscar nomination. Garfield, who previously compared Doss to Hillary Clinton,   said Tuesday   that he was even more heartened by his nomination because it suggested that people responded to what Doss stood for as a direct repudiation of President Donald Trump. And I’m sure there’s been some mistake,” he said. It’s lovely.”

This makeup artist painted Hogwarts on her body

I used a painterly sort of style and a speed paint will be up on YouTube by tomorrow ☺️. In a YouTube video, Ryland explained that she adapted the scene from the first film,   Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone. Since the advent of   Harry Potter, many an adolescent student has dreamed of receiving their letter to Hogwarts   and riding up to the magic castle on a starlit night. She’s also adapted characters from   Avatar: The Last Airbender   and   Princess Mononoke   into her body art, displayed on both her Instagram and personal website. This paint took five hours total but I could probably have happily painted it for ten – challenging but fun. “It took roughly five hours to paint but I could have happily gone for 10 hours,” Ryland wrote in the video description. ⚡️ hogwarts ⚡️.

Show Full Article About time I gave Hogwarts a shot! She used her skills to paint Hogwarts on her body. Timelapse/speed paint is now up on YouTube! Makeup artist Georgina Ryland   went farther than most, however. “It was challenging but fun to try it in this painterly style.”
Ryland explained further in an interview with Mashable, “I picked this particular reference image because it is so recognizable and has a very fantastical and magical feel to it.”
Hogwarts is far from Ryland’s first body-painting experiment, however.

Howard Jacobson to publish satirical fairy tale about Donald Trump’s presidency

Due out in April from Jonathan Cape,   Pussy   is a 50,000-word novella that satirizes Trump through a fantasy lens. But he’s certainly trying. In the clip, he tells   Access Hollywood’s Billy Bush that famous men can grab women “by the p—y.”
“Satire is an important weapon in the fight against what is happening and Trump looks like a person who is particularly vulnerable to derision,” Jacobson told   The Guardian. The book’s title comes from a 2005 tape that shows Trump making vulgar comments about pursuing women. In contrast to his typically slow writing style, Jacobson stayed up nights pumping out   Pussy   after Trump’s victory in the presidential election. Pussy   differs from Jacobson’s other work not just in genre (he typically writes contemporary fiction, like his award-winning 2010 novel   The Finkler Question), but also in the speed with which he wrote it. Man Booker Prize-winning author Howard Jacobson, for one, has written a comic fairy tale named after Trump’s most infamous election scandal:   Pussy. “Fiction can’t match reality at the moment,” Jacobson told   The Guardian. Show Full Article The star is Prince Fracassus, an ignorant and thin-skinned man obsessed with golden skyscrapers and reality TV shows who nevertheless ends up in charge of his country. Donald Trump’s presidency is only a few days old, but already the satire is starting to pour in.

Ryan Reynolds responds to ‘Deadpool’ Oscars snub

Congrats to all the nominees for these brilliant films. “I’ve always said that I wish the Oscars had a category for comedy as well,” Reynolds told EW at the time. It takes a lot of construction.”
Find a comprehensive list of all Oscar nominations here. When the Golden Globes nominations were announced, he told EW that the Oscars probably should have a comedy category. In the end, despite some Golden Globes-induced hype,   Deadpool   was shut out of this year’s   Oscars race when nominations were announced on Tuesday morning. Regularly scheduled tickle-fight at Camp #Deadpool is still on. When the R-rated superhero success unexpectedly earned Golden Globe nominations, Reynolds tweeted that the   Deadpool   team had celebrated with “a grotesque, early morning tickle-fight.” Even with no Oscar nominations to celebrate on Monday morning, Reynolds said that the tickling would not be stopped. Oftentimes with comedies you have to have some pathos and real grit that in turn earns you the right to subvert expectations and be funny. #Oscars2017

Show Full Article “It’s not an easy job. “Congrats to all the nominees for these brilliant films.”
Deadpool   wowed viewers with its mix of dark comedy and superhero style. “Regularly scheduled tickle-fight at Camp #Deadpool is still on,” Reynolds tweeted. Unfortunately, neither genre typically fares very well with the Academy, and Reynolds understands this. Star Ryan Reynolds quickly assured fans that he wasn’t too upset, however.

‘Suicide Squad’ lands Oscar nomination, ‘Deadpool’ shut out

Regularly scheduled tickle-fight at Camp #Deadpool is still on. Though Heath Ledger won the Best Supporting Actor trophy for his role as the villainous Joker in 2008’s eight-time nominee   The Dark Knight, a franchise superhero flick has yet to be nominated for Best Picture in AMPAS’ 89-year history (Birdman, calendar year 2014’s Best Picture winner, technically revolved around a   washed-up actor   who played a costumed crime-fighter at the peak of his fictional career). Though   Deadpool,   which grossed $783.1 million worldwide,   received zero Oscar nominations, Reynolds   — whose performance in the film   was   nominated for a Golden Globe — celebrated the Academy’s current class of honorees, noting the “regularly scheduled tickle-fight at Camp #Deadpool is still on” for the day. Show Full Article Ahead of Tuesday’s announcement, statistics were on Deadpool‘s side; the film   arguably positioned itself to become the exception to the historically coded Oscar rule,   in recent weeks   scoring   nominations and/or wins from   several industry guilds with crossover Academy membership (the aforementioned PGA, the Directors Guild of America, the Writers Guild of America, the American Cinema Editors) and high-profile awards bodies (the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, the Broadcast Film Critics Association) alike. In fact,   Deadpool is the only film whose 2017 PGA nomination for Best Theatrical Motion Picture didn’t translate into a Best Picture   Oscar nomination. While it’s not uncommon to see films like 2012’s   The Avengers   or 2016’s Doctor Strange   wind up with nominations among the craft set, traditionally the Academy shies away from recognizing comic book   fare in above-the-line categories. Still, Warner Bros.’ poorly reviewed DC Comics adaptation Suicide Squad   literally one-upped its cinematic rival Tuesday morning, notching   a single nod for best makeup and hairstyling — one of only four   nominations (across three films) for the studio that launched awards juggernaut Mad Max: Fury Road just last year. Congrats to all the nominees for these brilliant films. #Oscars2017

Read an excerpt from ‘Kill the Boy Band’ author Goldy Moldavsky’s next book

I didn’t know most of the kids at the table, but I was suddenly curious about what their campaigns could possibly be. Animals and International Causes got grouped together because there aren’t enough people in each cause to fill up a table. “That way I have an excuse to go over there, since we know each other now.”
“Why do you want to go to the International Table?”
“Because I want World Peace.”
“We all want world peace.”
“Yeah, well, I got dibs.”

Show Full Article “Feed the Children.”
“So why are you sitting at this table?” he said. “The Cool Table defies categorization. When did that happen?”
“Today at lunch.”
Which I’d skipped for my useless visit with Nurse Patrosian. He was sitting right next to Poe, and I could almost read his full name on her lips as she talked to him. Your cause. What are you here for?”
Right, I’d almost forgotten that no one here had names. Told from the perspective of Gregor Maravilla, a camper who takes his activism very seriously, No Good Deed   asks the question: What does it mean to be ‘good’?”
In advance of the book’s May 30 publication, EW is excited to reveal   No Good Deed’s   cover and an exclusive sneak peek inside. Even Balthazar-Adriano, who had the audacity of having two first names, wasn’t called by his campaign. “If you wanna switch tables I’d pick the International Table over the Hunger and Poverty Table,” Unity said. There was the girl I’d seen earlier today with the S.P.E.W. Sometimes campaigns overlap.”
“Wait, everyone has grouped up into categories? T-shirt (ever a mystery) and the kid who was protesting the camp itself, and another kid taking bites of his dinner in between bouts of strumming the guitar balancing on his lap. “And then there’s the Cool Table.” Unity pointed to the center of the room, at the table that every other table in the mess hall seemed to face. Last spring, Goldy Moldavsky thrilled us with her crackling debut,   Kill the Boy Band, a YA novel   about a group of teen fangirls who kidnap the lamest member of their favorite boy band. I made a mental note to not introduce myself as Feed the Children, and only introduce myself as Gregor. They are not known by their campaign names. “You belong at the Hunger and Poverty Table,” Unity said. Unity was right—nobody called Win End Hunger or Poe QUILTBAG. “What are the categories?”
“There’s the Environmental Table, the Socioeconomic Table, Culture and Humanities, Education, Health and Disease, Human and Civil Rights, and Hunger and Poverty. I looked around, worried that there would be someone whose seat I had taken, but it was just the two of us. I mean, the guy couldn’t even be bothered to have a nickname. They   are the few and blessed among us who can walk around and answer to their given birth names.”
Poe and Win were sitting at the Cool Table. For some reason even the thought of calling them by their campaign names seemed ridiculous. “I wanted to explore what would happen if that character ended up at a camp for teen activists. In her next book,   No Good Deed,   Moldavsky brings her cutting wit to the realm of teen and celebrity activism. Then there’s the Miscellaneous Table, or as I like to call them, the weirdos.”
“Weirdos?”
“They’re the people who don’t belong at any table or in any category because their campaigns are total jokes.”
The Miscellaneous Table was only a couple of tables away from ours. Below, check out a scene from Chapter 7 where the camp’s strange dynamics are laid bare:

Excerpt from No Good Deed by Goldy Moldavsky
“So who are you?”
“My name’s Gregor Maravilla.”
“I don’t mean your name, man. “Or maybe the International Causes Table. “I’m fascinated by young celebrities who speak out for a cause and the reaction that gets from the public, especially on social media,” Moldavsky tells EW. If anyone at the Cool Table even has a campaign, I don’t know what it is. When the head counselor announces a prize for the ‘best activist,’ the causes turn into competitions.

Lucas Hedges on his Oscar nomination: ‘Oh, I FREAKED out’

“It’s so wild that now I get to go,” he says. “I think I know who I’m going to ask,” he says. (See a full list of nominees here.)
“It’s so awesome that the three of us got nominated,” Hedges says, adding he had yet to talk to any of his costars or his   director. So tried to sleep through the announcement. Manchester   by the Sea   garnered six nominations,   including   Best Picture, Best Director and Best Original Screenplay for Kenneth Lonergan, Best Actor for Casey Affleck, and Best Supporting Actress for Michelle Williams. Lucas Hedges, who has been getting raves for his performance in   Manchester by the Sea, didn’t want to get his hopes up for an Oscar nomination on Tuesday morning. “That doesn’t surprise me much, though — they’re not the most public people. “I think I would have literally exploded in the moments leading up [to the nominations] in anticipation otherwise,” he says. “I ran downstairs and told my parents and   freaked out,”   Hedges says, laughing. “But I think I should wait to confirm that.”
 
 
 
 

Show Full Article But then he got a call with the news that he’s been nominated for Best Supporting Actor. As for who he might take as his date, Hedges laughs. They’re far more likely to call after they see your play.”   (Speaking of plays, Hedges doesn’t have much time to celebrate on Tuesday — he was heading straight to rehearsal for the Off-Broadway play,   Yen, which soon opens in previews.)
Hedges grew up hearing about what it’s like at an Oscar ceremony — his father, Peter Hedges, was nominated in 2003 for   writing the screenplay for   About a Boy.

Father John Misty announces third album, ‘Pure Comedy’

The explanation that we can either accept and move forward together or keep screaming to our respective heavens, “Why, God, why?”
Things are the way they are because this is how we, the human race, want them. It’s a great, great wall that goes up to the heavens and is as transparent as museum glass. So maybe we should submit ourselves to their authority. To deal with this less than ideal state of affairs, which seems suspiciously incompatible with how progressive and evolved they are by this point, they set about to entertain themselves into an oblivion with politics, sex, finance, philosophy, and other games of war. The equalizing revolution of bear justice is coming too. We have no desire to return to our primal scene. Bears we can trust. What if instead of imbuing our expectations for the quality of our lives to include perpetual happiness, dream fulfillment, excessive painlessness, existential certitude, material wealth, and all variety of romantic stimulation, we were just grateful for every day that didn’t involve getting eaten by a bear? Sooner than you think. The joke is that the best we can do is keep on keeping on, which we’ve proven ourselves pathologically adept at. Now the liberals and the conservatives are both outraged because that is a sentiment that is so profoundly insensitive to the ways in which the other side is clearly wrong in objective ways regarding basic decency, but what’s the alternative? Bears kill because they’re hungry; they’re very reasonable in that way. Airplanes for when we want to go somewhere! There is no remembrance of former things,
nor will there be any remembrance
of later things yet to be
among those who come after.”
– Ecclesiastes
Pure Comedy   is the story of a species born with a half-formed brain. (See the whole thing, which quotes Ecclesiastes, at the bottom of this post.)
The album announcement comes a day after Tillman shared its title track, “Pure Comedy,” a characteristically sweeping ode to everything from Barack Obama to Pepe the Frog. Not much evidence for that panning out. This happens more or less on an infinite loop until the end of time. The terrifying reality concerning the dilemma above is everything is chaos and no one is really in control of anyone or anything. See Tillman’s essay:
“What has been   is   what will be,
and what has been done is what will be done,
and there is nothing new under the sun. What for some is clearly garden-variety violent white nationalism serving as a catch-all for any number of paranoia-induced anti-fantasies foisted upon the poor and uneducated precisely by the ideologues bent on manufacturing voters who can be manipulated into voting against their own interests by making good and sure they remain poor and uneducated before cravenly   blaming their problems largely on people bearing distinctions like race, gender, and sexuality so people forget everything that’s good about the American experiment, is to others an opportunity to wrench the country back from the influence of hypocritical corporate tyrants bent on enslaving our minds with spineless liberal rhetoric in order to justify wiping out the jobs of decent people so they can fulfill their fey utopian dream of an impossible global community designed to profit only its architects (probably Banking Consortiums, pedophile rings, and definitely The Illuminati). This is how we want it. We’ve got sandwiches when we’re hungry! Is progress possible? I know everyone doesn’t feel the same about what’s going on right now. This they do until they are so numb, and the idea of any “not-me” so untenable, that they are blissfully incapable of noticing they’re all dead. Father John Misty, the freak-folk alias of singer-songwriter Josh Tillman, announced his third album Tuesday. The contribution of the ill-suited is of a more abstract, inspirational nature. What if progress only meant literally progressing from one day to the next without getting violently dismembered by a 9-foot tall, 500-pound grizzly? There’s only one creature that can penetrate that wall, friends, and it   is bears. What I recommend is this: we return to the Vedic cycle and submit ourselves to the likelihood that many of us will end up getting eaten by bears. We like the way things are. The cut capped a string of songs — ranging from Velvet Underground-styled Taylor Swift covers to rejected Prius commercial jingles — he has released since   Honeybear   came out   in early 2015. As it gets hotter and hotter, they’re coming. But what about the   well-documented history of humans making life a living hell for other humans since time began? – an arrangement emerges where these traits can be traded in for better-than-ness. “Not-me’s” eventually come to encapsulate everyone that is not a single “me” at any given time, and this paves the way for incredibly distasteful behavior until the species arrives at a place of such alienation and fear there is really nothing so horrible that one of them wouldn’t do to the other. This form of mammal attack is made all the more nightmarish by virtue of the fact that the mammal in question kills purely ideologically. Josh Tillman, you have said and done some stupid fucking things since we’ve known you, but this is too much. We’re either all complicit in this purest comedy, or the people who aren’t to blame are at war with the people who are to blame until everyone is dead. He’s also racked up an impressive resume, collaborating with stars including Beyoncé, Lady Gaga, and Lana Del Rey. We’ve already built the wall! It seems like a pretty good explanation for why the species is so important. Hold the motherfucking phone. The destruction of everyone who fails to conform? He also released a lengthy, somewhat ridiculous essay describing the album. Bears can smash through that glass like a pitcher of sugar water through a brick wall. It’s only natural. We’re going to save the planet alright, and it will be a glorious sacrifice just like the Sky-Man we invented showed us how. Bottom line is that as long as we expect to live in such a way – immune to the natural laws of this godless rock that govern everything else here – human existence will continue to be a cruel joke. It’s a beautiful wall that winds surgically through nations, cities, neighborhoods, and sometimes even homes. What does it look like? Imagine if you will, as the album starts, that you’re way out in space looking at the earth and, though it’s impossible to “fall” through space, you start a free fall anyway in the direction of the bright blue marble. Something like that. Is there a thing of which it is said,
‘See, this is new?’
It has been already
in the ages before us. Bears, man. Sky-Man pretty much runs the show for a really, really long time, and his inner-circle of better-thans gets increasingly smaller and smaller, even though by the end of his reign everyone in the species considers themselves one. Show Full Article These ironies are designed to help cope with the species’ loathsome vulnerability and to try and reconcile how disproportionate their imagination is to the monotony of their existence. This better-than-ness really starts to run rampant, and the species begins to wonder if there isn’t a Sky-Man in the sky who is perhaps the source of all better-than-ness. We know that these magical conveniences come at a staggering price, and that excess for the few is based on the scarcity of the many, but that’s why we invented the business of globalization! This album does not espouse either of those views. It is a globe within a globe, and those who live within its interior are as clueless as to what’s happening on the other side as we are to what’s happening right now on the far side of Mars. Though just an hour has passed you have no recollection of what the earth looked like from the far-flung reaches of space, nor how simple it all seemed a matter of minutes ago. Due out April 7,   Pure Comedy is Tillman’s first album since 2015’s acclaimed   I Love You, Honeybear. Now all of a sudden they expect light in the dark, warmth in the cold, and to make something out of nothing. They’re coming into our neighborhoods, they’re coming into our schools, into our churches, into our banks, into our places of business, into our governments, into our beds. I fear, however, that it is too late for us to go back into the natural order. Cooperation among the species to achieve these goals eventually yields a worldview wherein some among the species believe that there are individuals for whom this type of work is maybe ill-suited. The erection of institutions with the power and infrastructure to enforce a rule of law with the good of as many as possible at heart? He’s made news   for everything from writing fresh lyrics for the   House of Cards theme song to penning a plucky note of support for the supergroup Nice As F—. These distinctions involve do-it-ness, cool-face-and-body-ness, craftiness, etc. The ill-suited begin to make subtle distinctions among themselves that extend beyond “eaten by a bear/not eaten by a bear”. If you’re lucky, with someone you love; even if just for a day, a year, a lifetime. Over time, and as their brains prove to be remarkably good at inventing meaning where there is none, the species becomes the purveyor of increasingly bizarre and sophisticated ironies. The conversion of everyone to our respective beliefs? The species’ only hope for survival, finding itself on a cruel, unpredictable rock surrounded by other species who seem far more adept at this whole thing (and to whom they are delicious), is the reliance on other, slightly older, half-formed brains. For the next 75 minutes you plummet toward the earth, losing more and more perspective on what an abstract and impermanent place our planet is, how predictably we step on the same rakes, slip on the same banana peels over and over again through the ages, quickly becoming more and more immersed in the very messy business of being a human – the dubious privilege of being here, the elusiveness of meaning, true love and its habitual absence, random euphoria and the inexplicable misery of others, truth and its more alluring counterfeits, the sophistication of answers that don’t make any sense, the barbarism of our appetites, lucky breaks and injustice, faith and ignorance, crippling, mind-numbing boredom, and the terror of it all ending too soon. “not-me’s”). Unfortunately there are some better-thans who get together and decide that one way of better-than-ness is better than other betters-thans’ better-than-ness and teach their little half-formed-brain babies as much (most who interpret this distinction as “me’s” vs. That’s not it. Social media when we want our voices to be heard by all God’s creation! Before you know it, you’ve delicately crash-landed and find yourself lying on your back looking up at the stars. Simple as that. This reliance takes on a few different names as their story unfolds, like “love,” “culture,” “family,” etc. There is no intellectual, political, or spiritual explanation that will ever satisfy anyone for longer than a moment, least of all this, the only explanation with any dignity. The irony here of course is that many more humans than we’d like to think, most of whom are not reading the interminable liner notes to a folk rock album, do live in daily, perpetual fear of getting killed by a mammal far more terrifying than a bear, and I think you know the one to which I refer. In the time since   Honeybear, Tillman, who before adopting the Father John Misty moniker put out multiple albums under his own name and played drums in the indie-folk band Fleet Foxes, has seen his celebrity rise considerably. The explanation that appeases both our instincts for compassion and liberation. Well, we’ve seen how that typically goes. Both of those views take for granted a certain degree of sophistication, or at least a knack for cooperation, that I’m absolutely convinced humans do not possess; not to mention some kind of innate logic to the proceedings here on Earth – which make a much better case for being some kind of demented joke than anything else.

Erin Andrews reveals secret cancer battle

“Finally I got to the point where I believed it too. 24, the morning before the Week 3 game between Washington and New York. I needed to be with my crew.”

Andrews, who had another procedure in November to completely remove the cancer, credits the long legal battle she went through over the illegally recorded tape with helping her get through her diagnosis. However, she decided not to tell her colleagues and covered   that Sunday’s game, eventually undergoing surgery on Oct. I don’t want players or coaches to look at me differently.”

Show Full Article Let’s just say the doctor didn’t recommend that,” said the Dancing With the Stars host. 11. “Throughout my career, all I’ve ever wanted is to just fit in,” she said. Two days after surgery, Andrews flew from Los Angeles to Green Bay, Wisconsin, to cover the Packer’s game   against the Dallas Cowboys. This is [Fox’s] Super Bowl year, and I’m not missing the Super Bowl,” she told her oncologist before entering the operating room. She was being serious about not missing any games. “But just as I felt during my trial, sports were my escape. “After the trial everyone kept telling me, ‘You’re so strong, for going through all of this, for holding down a job in football, for being the only woman on the crew,’” said Andrews. The sportscaster — who settled a lawsuit over a secretly recorded video of her from 2008 in April — learned of her diagnosis on   Sept. I felt that way about being sick too. “Should I have been standing for a full game five days after surgery? “I’m not watching any football games at home. ‘Hey, I have cancer, but dammit, I am strong, and I can do this.’”
Andrews said she decided to keep her diagnosis a secret because she didn’t want to be treated differently. “That I had this extra baggage with the scandal, I didn’t want to be any different. Erin Andrews was diagnosed with and successfully treated for cervical cancer in the fall, she revealed to Sports Illustrated’s The MMQB.

‘Moonlight’ star Mahershala Ali reacts to Oscar nom, industry diversity

Anything in our culture, anything that has real societal, social impact, those are things that we always have to keep our eyes on, to make sure that everyone has an opportunity. I’m encouraged by it, of course, and appreciate being present and being a part of it, but we gotta keep working on that. My friends have definitely helped guide me and assist me through things, my family helped me keep the lights on during certain years, and my wife knows how much she’s contributed to my well-being, so I’m happy. I just get to be the embodiment of that but I don’t really own that. [Laughs]   But I was obviously aware, with Moonlight being recognized the way it has been. That’s what it means, I think, to be a part of progress. [Laughs]   Well, let me see. ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: So let me get this straight: You weren’t   even watching the live-stream this morning? It’s great to see, especially to see Barry [nominated], because that story is so personal to him and to [writer] Tarell McCraney. You are the only Oscar acting nominee this year who’s in two of the Best Picture nominees —   Moonlight   and   Hidden Figures   — both of which feature strong, diverse casts. Ali likes to multi-task: In 2016, he made waves delivering memorable performances in not just Barry Jenkins’ Best Picture-nominated   Moonlight, but also in fellow Best Picture nominee   Hidden Figures —   as a colonel who woos Taraji P. We didn’t have a lot to make this film with and to see it turn out the way it has is really encouraging and humbling and empowering. I’m appreciative of it, I’m appreciative of Moonlight and Hidden Figures being recognized and the work of my cast-mates and Barry Jenkins and the fact that people have taken notice of their work. Currently in Austin, Texas, filming James Cameron’s   Alita: Battle Angel, Ali had been prepping for another day on the set of the action-adventure epic when he received the news. We’d be setting ourselves up to be really disappointed in a couple of years if there are not a number of people of color nominated or being recognized, so as much as I appreciate it all, I just think we have to be really cognizant of the work we have to do. The actor took a few minutes out of his suddenly crazed morning to talk   with EW. So what does this mean to you? We’re gonna continue to struggle to find what that balance can be, and so that’s ongoing   work. That doesn’t stop because of 2017 and the Oscars this year. You are now officially an Oscar nominee, no matter what happens at the ceremony. I think this year has been really positive for people of color in terms of   films and representation, but you know, we have a ways to go. I see all the people that have contributed to me being able to be here, so I don’t own that by myself, you know? I didn’t imagine my name could get any longer. I’m still surprised by how calm I’ve felt throughout this process. Does this mean that the conversation has changed, from being about #OscarsSoWhite to, maybe, #OscarsSoRight? So once the phone started going off, I knew something positive happened. It’s been a group effort from day one to this moment right now. The Oscars take place Feb. It’s been the way it’s been for a very long time so for there to be expectations that everything‘s   changed in a year is unrealistic. “So yeah, it’s been a whirlwind.”
It’s no surprise the actor was focusing on non-awards-related matters. But I wasn’t really nervous or anxious or anything. You know, if you’re a parent, you don’t get to stop raising your kid at 12 or 13 [years old], you have to keep doing that, you have to keep putting in work. Moonlight   star   Mahershala Ali, as usual, was thinking about work when he heard about his   Academy Award nomination for Best Supporting Actor. Henson’s NASA mathematician — and in TV dramas like   Luke Cage   and the fourth season of   House of Cards,   all of which he filmed   around the same time. MAHERSHALA ALI:   No, not that I didn’t know how to watch it, but I just got up and started getting ready for work, and you know, figured that if there was something to tell me, then I would get a phone call, and if there wasn’t, then my phone would not go off. I’m happy with myself, of course, but I’m happy they get to share in that. That never stops. “I was up and just getting myself together to get out of the house to go to work when my wonderful publicist called me,” he says. 26. And now, Ali’s an Oscar nominee. How does it feel to be   “Oscar nominee Mahershala Ali”? No   nerves last night either, then? [Laughs]   I think I need just a couple of days or even months to take that in and feel what that means, but I think what it means to me now is, you know, what I hear or what I see in a trophy. Show Full Article I didn’t know what to expect going into this, but I haven’t thought about it a lot. You know, I did think about it yesterday, because it was mentioned to me a couple of times at work so it was hard not to be aware of it, and your mind naturally goes there. And so it just makes me really happy that   they   can own that and they get to have some ownership of that recognition. I think when we talk about inclusion, that proper balance is something that is gonna take many years to find.

Oscars 2017: Meryl Streep reacted to her record 20th nomination with a GIF

26. Show Full Article Streep was nominated for her starring role in   Florence Foster Jenkins,   which she also received a Golden Globe nomination for. Of the 20 times she’s been nominated, she’s won three statues for her roles in   2011’s The Iron Lady,   1982’s   Sophie’s Choice,   and 1979’s   Kramer v. She was honored with the esteemed Cecil B. See the full list of this year’s Oscar nominees here. The ceremony itself takes place Feb. Reactions to Oscar nominations typically include thank yous, a shout-out to the film’s cast and crew — but Meryl Streep went a different route this year when she received her 20th (yes,   20th) nod: Her reaction statement is simply a GIF   of herself happily dancing in what looks like 2009’s   It’s Complicated. Before this year, Streep was most recently nominated for her performance in 2015’s   Into the Woods. Kramer. DeMille Award at this year’s Golden Globes, where she gave an impassioned acceptance speech that touched on the recent presidential election and called for empathy.

Stephen Colbert and Billy Eichner ask New Yorkers what messages they’d give Trump

“I’m actually very concerned about the people he’s bringing into his cabinet. The so-called “liberal New York bubble” has been mocked before as a community of exclusive, like-minded thinkers, and now Billy Eichner —   who clearly plans to continue doing   political sketches until he gets that Emmy   — is getting to the bottom of it. on truTV. “You’ve gotta dig to go a little deeper in your soul and not be such a shallow creep,” one woman advises Trump. He’s opening Pandora’s Box.”
And just before you thought this show might be   getting too serious, Colbert chimes in with a perfectly hilarious comeback: “He actually grabbed Pandora’s box without asking permission,” he tells the woman, before being ushered away by Eichner.  

Show Full Article The jokes don’t stop there; one woman is asked to sign a goodbye card for the freedom of the press. After the Big Apple receives a slew of positive comments, Eichner concludes that he likes his liberal “snowflake” bubble, and would prefer an ever smaller bubble, thank you very much. As Colbert and Eichner say their goodbyes, Eichner rolls away in a literal bubble (think inflatable hamster wheel), though Colbert eventually joins him, because this is Billy on the Street, after all, and what would a Billy segment be   if it didn’t make you say to yourself, “What on earth am I watching?”
Billy on the Street airs Tuesdays at 10:30 p.m. “Rest in peace, America,” she writes. Stephen Colbert joins Eichner for a new segment on   Billy on the Street, where the two take to the streets to ask New Yorkers how it feels to live in their New York bubble, and what messages they’d like Colbert to pass along to President Trump.
