E! producer claims she was fired for allowing Eva Longoria's Catt Sadler statement to air

Longtime E! producer Aileen Gram-Moreno filed a complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity commission where she says she was unfairly terminated and replaced by a man. In an effort to prevent any mention of the Catt Sandler equal pay issue from going to air after Debra Messing mentioned her, Gram-Moreno was instructed to review all of the prerecorded interviews on the red carpet for mentions of Sadler. Due to the time constraint - they were reviewing interviews as the show was airing - Gram-Moreno said it was all but impossible to review every single interview. She said she listened to most of the Eva Longoria clip but missed the part at the end where she says she stands with Catt Sadler and the clip went to air.

She apologized to her executive producer who responded by saying it probably couldn't have been avoided, but a week later another executive producer called her and informed her that she'd been fired from the upcoming shows she'd been booked for because she let the mention go to air.

E! has made a point of standing behind Ryan Seacrest despite his sexual harassment allegations and he will be hosting their red carpet show on Sunday.

E! will reportedly only be speaking to "friendly" celebs who they know won't bring up the allegations against Ryan Seacrest on air.

-acknowledged that some are still closeted because of fear of losing out on deals/roles, not wanting to make other uncomfortable, etc
-"Being born gay, black and female is not a revolutionary act. Being proud to be a gay black female is.”
-"So I ask those of you that are still hiding to come out. Come out, wherever you are, please don’t be afraid. And I hope that you know that I’m here to hold your hand whenever you decide to jump into this wonderful pool of people who refuse to be hidden. The water is warm.”

The Bad and Lazy Worldbuilding of Netflix's Fantasy Film "Bright"

– Lindsay Ellis made a video essay taking down Netflix's Bright, specifically how everything wrong about it is built on its core problem of lazy worldbuilding and writing. It was directed by Suicide Squad's David Ayer, "written" by scum of the earth Max Landis, and cost $90 million to make.
– Ellis draws a comparison between Bright and movies like "Crash", which was also bad but largely praised at the time, and had a terrible understanding of race and social issues, and how Hollywood builds worlds of racial allegories without wanting to offend casual racists, or their target audience. She also goes into examples of fantasy allegories, including the racism of Lord of the Rings, secret worlds and alternate realities, and why Bright's is a problem right from its very premise into the nitty gritty deetails.
– "Movies like Bright 'seek to understand the logic behind racism', but racism isn't logical, and you can't logic people out of a mindset they did not logic themselves into."
– Joel Edgerton (the orc Jacoby) recently said he'd rather think about the people who watched Bright than the bad reviews it got. "All I know is what was reported, which was something like—whatever number was reported—something like 11 million that first weekend. Whatever it was, it amounted to a $100 million-plus opening weekend. But, I have to be honest, that’s considering that people don’t have to get in their car, go buy a ticket, go buy the popcorn. There’s a certain age where you can roll over and press play on the remote control. But, according to them, the numbers were there.” So, it was for the people not the critics, etc. Sounds like Suicide Squad.
Bright has a 29% critic rating and a 7.3 audience rating on Metacritic.
– A sequel was greenlit in January, as Netflix was always planning on building the film into a tentpole franchise or universe. Max Landis will not be part of the project this time around.

Jennifer Lawrence & Jodie Foster will present Best Actress at Sunday's Oscars, Emma Stone will not

Since Casey Affleck finally did something of remote decency and said he wasn't going to the Oscars, Best Actress Oscar winners Jodie Foster (The Accused; Silence of the Lambs) and Jennifer Lawrence (Silver Linings Playbook) will present the Actress in a Leading Role Oscar to fellow white Best Actress winner Frances McDormand.

Apparently, Emma Stone will NOT be presenting Best Actor as per tradition, and now Oscar winners Jane Fonda (Coming Home; Klute) and Helen Mirren (The Queen) will be handing that away to hackjob abuser Gary Oldman.

This answers the question of why Jennifer would be at the Oscars (besides making a beeline to future fuck buddy Timbo Chalamet), as she mentioned earlier she wasn't sure how she was going to act when she saw Ryan Seacrest on the red carpet on Sunday.

Why the Oscars love method actors

Method acting's foundational theory originated in the Soviet Union during the early 20th century. It was created by Konstantin Stanislavski and his peers at the Moscow Art Theater as a framework for systematically training young actors. Method acting became influential in the US in the ’30s and ’40s, pioneered by Lee Strasberg, Stella Adler, and Sanford Meisner, each of whom transformed and built on Stanislavski’s system.

Today, training in method acting is ubiquitous for aspiring actors. But at the same time, the stakes of method acting continue to rise. First popularized in the US during the 1950s by Marlon Brando's generation of Hollywood stars, method acting continues to be a consistent way for actors to push themselves in new roles.

Almost half of all Best Actor and Actress awards have been won by method actors since 1951.
