Emily in Paris. Photo: Netflix/YouTube On February 21, the Los Angeles Times published a report on alleged “ethical conflicts” and a “culture of corruption” within the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, the highly influential 87-member nonprofit trade organization that runs and votes on the annual Golden Globe Awards for film and television. One element of the investigation is Hollywood’s “widespread perception that members can still be wheedled and swayed with special attention,” with one awards consultant calling the HFPA a “nice target” for awards campaigning because they are such a small body. In one example of the “hotel stays, dinners, and other freebies” that Globes voters receive, the Times wrote about how in 2019, Paramount Network treated over 30 Golden Globe voters to a lavish Emily in Paris set visit which included “a two-night stay at the five-star Peninsula Paris hotel, where rooms currently start at about $1,400 a night, and a news conference and … [Read more...] about Gave Golden Globe Voters a Lavish Set Visit in 2019

Sixteen Candles Photo: Universal Pictures It’s easy to get swept up in a cute teen romance. They’re fun, there’s the nostalgia factor (we were all teens once!), and they’re full of so much hope — the feeling that this is just the beginning . But here’s the thing: Because we’re all so busy getting swept away and having fun and remembering what hope feels like, we don’t always have the most discerning eye when it comes to who our hero has chosen to fall in love with. Sometimes, when you take a closer look at what’s going on and who we’ve been spending cinematic time with, you realize that this person is no good at all and our hero can do much, much better. Don’t get me wrong, some of your favorite teen rom-com love interests are just fine — wonderful, even! — but we owe it to ourselves and our rom-com heroes to examine this idea further. And so Vulture has taken it upon itself to put a sampling of love interests from teen comedies (spanning from the ’80s to today) to the test … [Read more...] about Is This Teen Rom-Com Love Interest Really Worth Dating?
He’s a master class in how to play the game as a celebrity. Case in point: his Fast Times at Ridgemont High table-read performance. Photo: CORE/YouTUbe To succeed at celebrity is to master the art of image construction and management. It is to turn yourself into a brand in which performance is the method and the point. The step and repeat on the red carpet. The reaction to a seemingly impromptu paparazzi swarm. The interviews. The magazine covers. The charity events. It’s all in service of an image created, not born. Throughout the history of Hollywood, there have been figures who buckled against the weight of the personas they walked behind, like Errol Flynn and Lana Turner during the height of the studio system. There have been others whose image-making was so refined as to make it hard to tell where the real person began and the star ended, à la Archibald Leach, better known as the debonair Cary Grant. After the fall of the classic studio system in the 1960s, much changed … [Read more...] about God, Brad Pitt Is So Good at This
Photo: Pascal Le Segretain/Getty Images Instead of presenting all 24 Academy Awards during the Oscar broadcast this month, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has decided to only present 20: The statues for cinematography, film editing, live-action short, and makeup and hairstyling will be handed out during commercial breaks (and broadcast online), and will be edited into the full broadcast later in the show. This isn’t sitting well with some people in Hollywood, including Best Director and Best Cinematography winner Alfonso Cuarón , who tweeted a passionate defense of the cinematography Oscar being handed out as part of the normal show. “In the history of CINEMA, masterpieces have existed without sound, without color, without a story, without actors and without music,” he wrote. “No one single film has ever existed without CINEMAtography and without editing.” Cuarón had time today! In a since-deleted tweet , last year’s Best Director winner Guillermo del … [Read more...] about Alfonso Cuarón on Oscars Cutting Cinematography From Broadcast: It’s Called
