Hammond insists he’s a breed apart from bloggers who finagle their own ads from studios, but on the half-charted internet, everyone sets his own boundaries. Stone admits she might “shut up about a movie I hate” if it’s advertising on her site, but she refuses to join the Broadcast Film Critics Association, which votes on the Oscar-season Critics’ Choice Awards, while Pond and Hammond are members. Feinberg still owns the blog he started after he left the Times—ScottFeinberg.com—which sells ads and runs links to his Reporter posts. “I have a third party handle it,” he explains, “for me to avoid any conflicts of interest.” Wells hired someone named Sean Jacobs to sell his ads, but that turns out to be a pseudonym for his son, Jett. This year he’s also began selling advertorials at $5,000 a pop, but only for movies he loves. … [Read more...] about In the Most Competitive Oscar Season Ever, Bloggers Are Keeping Score
How to start accounting career
So Bottle Rocket comes out in 1996 while you’re in L.A. still looking for your big break as an actor. How did you pay the bills?Laughs.] Nothing against waiters and waitresses, but I couldn’t do it. I didn’t want to be that actor in L.A. having conversations with other actors about acting. I usually run away from those things. I generally don’t hang out with actors in between takes. I’m an only child, so I’ve always been off in a corner somewhere. I think it’s actually taken some learning to know how to be around other people. But the one thing I never had a problem with was listening. My mother was a great listener. And so I never had to compete for her attention because I was an only child. … [Read more...] about Walton Goggins on 25 Years of Playing ‘That Guy’
How Fonda will receive that award still remains a big question mark, though. The Golden Globes is scheduled to take place in about a month, on February 28. Traditionally, the show is a low-key affair at the Beverly Hilton, but with California waffling between lockdowns and reopening during the continuing COVID-19 pandemic, it’s unclear where the ceremony will take place this year, or if it’ll happen in person at all (and which nominees can attend if it does happen in person, and what social distancing will look like — you get the idea). Not that we’d mind watching Fonda accept her award right at home either, though. … [Read more...] about Jane Fonda to Receive the Cecil B. DeMille Award, Somehow, at the Golden Globes
Well, consider the splash noticed. Futuro Studios seems to be everywhere at the moment, a natural outcome of having lined up a string of buzzy show launches in quick succession. This past month, the team rolled out two new productions: Anything For Selena, a personal documentary on the cultural icon Selena Quintanilla hosted by WBUR senior editor Maria Garcia, and Norco 80, an adaptation of Peter Houlahan’s book on a violent 1980s bank heist in Southern California that’s hosted by Futuro staffer Antonia Cereijido. And next month, those shows will be followed up with two more new releases: La Brega, a fully dual-language podcast about Puerto Rico, and Suave, which is centered on the story of a man, David Luis “Suave” Gonzalez, who was sentenced to life in prison as a teenager. More projects are on the way (some still under wraps), all scheduled to drop throughout the rest of what’s shaping up to be another long year. … [Read more...] about Futuro Studios Is Having a Moment
She said on the podcast, Dopey: "My stepmum had to be in LA waiting to get the results from taking her to the doctor so my dad came up here and then travel got crazy so she stayed in LA with my little sisters." … [Read more...] about Demi Moore looks incredible in unearthed school photo – and identical to daughter Rumer!
This isn’t the Lara Croft you know. This Lara Croft wears practical attire. She’s got mad muscles. She has her hair in a ponytail so it doesn’t get in her face. She’s by the ocean, but she has an ice pick, because you never know, there could be a tall, snowy mountain nearby. Tomb Raider’s logo contains an arrow, because you know this Lara Croft is all about old-fashioned weaponry. There are odd glowing red things in the distance, because maybe there’s magic and/or police cars in this movie, I guess? Tomb Raider will be available in real 3-D and IMAX, and I plan to see it in both. 10/10 fevered tulips. … [Read more...] about Alicia Vikander’s
