Michelle Williams covers the January issue of Elle Magazine, just proving to me that she’s really going to do a big Oscar campaign this season. Michelle has a supporting role in Manchester by the Sea, and many believe she’s one of the leading contenders for a Best Supporting Actress Oscar nomination, alongside Naomie Harris (for Moonlight) and Viola Davis (for Fences). I keep hoping that Viola’s Oscar won’t be snatched away by another actress, and I’m really hoping that Michelle isn’t … read more

Here are some photos from last night’s London premiere of Collateral Beauty, a film which is pretty much dead on arrival in theaters. I’ve barely written about the film or the promotional tour, but Will Smith has been hustling for it for weeks. It’s just that no one has been paying attention. No one even cares that Will has an awful mustache these days! Look at thing. Before I get into the terrible reviews, let me make a few fashion notes and superficial observations. One, Keira Knightley … read more

The holidays have arrived! In no time at all Hollywood will be rolling out the red carpet for the cavalcade of awards shows that come to town early every year. So we took the liberty of rounding up some of the most-talked-about films in theaters and arriving soon!
Moonlight A boy’s formative years play out in three chapters during America’s notorious “War on Drugs era. He must struggle to survive his troubled home life and come to terms with his sexuality.

Naomie Harris has a lot to celebrate.
On Monday, Moonlight was nominated for Best Motion Picture (Drama) at the 2017 Golden Globes, and Harris also received a Best Supporting Actress in a Motion Picture nomination. Two days later, she entered the Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Supporting Role race when the 2017 SAG Awardsnominations were announced. “We’re going to celebrate tomorrow and just have an amazing time. I’m so over the moon,” she said on ITV’s Lorraine Thursday. “It’s a … read more

It’s one of those years where there should not be too many surprises when it comes to the major Oscar contenders. There are some real races going on, for sure, but as far as the nominations go, the actual races solidified pretty early on, with a few exceptions. For example, while I think Moonlight’s Mahershala Ali is the leading contender for Best Supporting Actor, the other nominations are largely up in the air. Anyway, the SAG nominations were just released and most of these nominations were … read more

Will Smith was in the holiday spirit when he hit the red carpet Monday night.
“I’m so good it’s almost sad,” Smith joked at the Collateral Beauty premiere, hosted at the Frederick P. Rose Hall in New York City’s Lincoln Center. “Right on the edge! Right on the edge!”
“It’s Christmastime in New York. I think the drive here—seeing all the Christmas lights and the streets are full—that energy is starting to come up,” the actor, 48, explained to E! News. “I think it tweaked me a little bit. I hit … read more

Now that we’ve had some time to process the Golden Globe nominations – go here for the film nominations and here for the TV nominations – it’s time to analyze the snubs. Before we get started, let me just say that I’m pretty happy with the nominations from a diversity standpoint: Moonlight was recognized, and Mahershala Ali and Naomie Harris was recognized individually. I’m very pleased with Loving’s nominations too, although I think it will be an uphill battle for Ruth Negga to win … read more

That was Meryl Streep’s reaction after learning she had earned her 30th Golden Globe Award nomination. Behind closed doors, that’s how we assume most of this year’s nominees felt when they learned they had been granted a Golden Globe nod, many for the first time in their brief or lengthy careers. Meanwhile, as the names streamed in, there was cause for celebration on a broader front. After the #OscarsSoWhite controversy of 2016, it seems Hollywood is steadily understanding how to … read more

Shortly after Barry Jenkins awoke on Monday, he learned that “Moonlight” scored six Golden Globe nominations, more than any other movie except “La La Land,” which earned seven. After also nabbing a handful of critics’ prizes over the past few weeks, “Moonlight” has paved a clear path to the Oscars. “I’d be a pretty miserable person if I couldn’t celebrate this morning,” Jenkins told The Huffington Post by phone, a couple of hours after the Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s … read more

The Critics Choice Awards helped solidify some of the acting races. While everyone has said that the Best Supporting Actress Oscar is Viola Davis’s to lose, I still had my doubts that the big award shows would recognize her work in Fences. But last night she picked up the supporting actress award, the sole Critics Choice Award for Fences (you can see the full list of winners here). So… yeah, I do think Viola will end up beating out actresses like Nicole Kidman and Michelle Williams and Naomie … read more
