How the documentary 'Street Gang' tells 'vast story' of influential 'Sesame Street'
“Sesame Street” didn’t start with Big Bird, Bert and Ernie. I was really hopeful to tell the adult story of 'Sesame Street,' the struggles and the dreams of these people who came together. “The origin is the most groundbreaking, the most experimental period of ‘Sesame Street.’ By reducing the vastness of it, we were able to make it stronger.”Making the movie opened “Sesame Street” in new ways for the filmmakers. “Jon’s like, ‘We’re going to put them together,’ and it was such a huge step.”Agrelo didn’t really know that at the very beginning, “Sesame Street” was directly aimed at Black inner-city children ages 3 to 5. We still have to open up our minds and our hearts, and this program is still very much a part of that.”
Is 'Together Together' the beginning of new genre the platonic rom-com?
"Together Together" is everything you could want in a romantic comedy – minus the romance. We've come to expect the traditional kind of romantic comedy from the likes of Nora Ephron and Nancy Meyers classics, and newer hits like "Set It Up" and "Long Shot." In a typical romantic comedy they'd realize they're in love, raise the child together and live happily ever after. A relationship not continuing on over the horizon is seen as a failed relationship, Beckwith adds – a notion "Together Together" chips away at. The platonic rom-com formula can be more commonly found in movies where female friendships are tested amid growing pains like "Life Partners," "Frances Ha" and "Bridesmaids."

Who is Sub-Zero and why is he so mad? Joe Taslim explains his 'Mortal Kombat' villain's rage
There's one problem with having a legit martial arts actor like Joe Taslim play the uber-villain Sub-Zero in the new "Mortal Kombat" movie: He was too fast for the mask. Legions of "Mortal Kombat" video game fans would demand their cold-harnessing, frozen-hearted assassin wear his signature mask in the film adaptation (in theaters Friday and streaming on HBO Max Friday) just like the 1995 "Mortal Kombat" film. The thoughtful Taslim answered our questions and explained his notorious alter-ego:Why Sub-Zero needs that rad maskThe origin story behind the assassin's face apparel is not explained in "Mortal Kombat." Taslim has pondered this brutal killing for Sub-Zero motivation and has a mask theory (Hint: It's not about looking rad). Not the pain Sub-Zero delivers to his foes, but his character's inner pain after he and his brother were abducted as children and trained to be assassins.
The 25 greatest Oscar best picture winners, ranked (from 'Parasite' to 'The Godfather')
For film fans, choosing from the history of Oscar best picture winners offers a cornucopia of delicacies. So take the gun, leave the cannoli and strap in for the best 25 best picture winners, ranked. '12 Years a Slave' (2013)Steve McQueen's pre-Civil War drama is not an easy watch at all but still an important one. It still holds up, too, as both an exceptional romantic tale and a gripping drama about an improbable success story who doesn't throw away his shot. 'The Silence of the Lambs' (1991)“The Exorcist,” “Jaws” and “Get Out” didn’t wintheir respective best picture races, so “Lambs” is still the freakiest best picture ever, with an unnerving Anthony Hopkins as cannibalistic serial killer Hannibal Lecter and a tremendous Jodie Foster as FBI rookie Clarice Starling.
Can Carey Mulligan win Oscar gold for 'Promising Young Woman'? Nine thriller performances that have
But Ledger's unforgettable role as the disturbed Joker earned a best supporting actor nod on the one-year anniversary of the actor's tragic death at age 28. Jodie Foster, as the film's rookie FBI agent tapping into the expertise of imprisoned, cannibalistic serial killer Hannibal Lecter, earned a best actress Oscar. The hit movie scored with audiences and Academy voters as Hawke earned a best supporting actor nomination, and Washington won best actor, his second Oscar. Bardem was awarded best supporting actor at the 2008 Oscars for the dark performance. But even Jones was honored to win best supporting actor, or, as he called it in his acceptance speech, "the finest award that any actor can receive."
Oscars 2021: Could Anthony Hopkins overtake Chadwick Boseman? And more questions as final voting closes
Like everything else this past year, awards season was turned upside down by the COVID-19 pandemic: Screenings were virtual, acceptance speeches became Zoom calls and red carpets went the way of the dinosaurs. Best actress is still up for grabsTrying to read the tea leaves of the best actress race is harder than ever. But neither Davis, Day nor Mulligan were up for best actress at last Sunday’s BAFTAs, where the best actress winner has coincided with Oscar for the last seven years. McDormand could potentially ride a "Nomadland" Oscar sweep to her third acting win. We're guessing the Academy will choose to spread the love by anointing Day or Davis best actress, instead giving McDormand a best picture statue as a producer of "Nomadland."

The 45-year-old TV gossiper issued the mea culpa to Demi Burnett, 26, Wednesday, shortly after she accused him on Twitter of telling her about a creepy sex dream he had in a clumsy attempt at a come-on. “I am apologizing now knowing how uncomfortable I made you feel,” Steve, whose last name is Carbone, tweeted in response.

When a fan told Steve it seemed as if his apology was putting some of the blame on Burnett, he added, “I’m not blaming her at all.

Last week, Hayley Hasselhoff made history as the first plus-size model to cover a European edition of Playboy — but judging by her experience behind the scenes, the magazine still has work to do on the inclusivity front. “You know there’s still a long way to go when it comes to availability for fashion,” Hasselhoff said. “When it came down to actually fitting my figure in this lingerie, it’s all me. It came from my wardrobe.”Continued the curve model, “At the end of the day, I’m so used to it. “I am overcome with emotion around what this cover signifies for inclusivity and its greater purpose towards female empowerment,” she wrote in a lengthy Instagram post sharing her Playboy cover last week.

How Prince Philip played a 'crucial' role in preparing Prince William as future king: royal expert

Mickey Guyton Almost Quit Country Before Her Song 'Black Like Me' Became A Hit
As one of country music’s only Black female stars, Mickey Guyton is determined to sing out against racial and gender inequality. “I had been trying to pursue a country career for like eight years, and constantly we were told — not only as a Black woman but as a woman — why we would fail in this industry,” Guyton said. And then I wrote ‘Black Like Me.’”Released in June 2020, “Black Like Me” is a reflection on the racism and biases Guyton had experienced throughout her life. “If you think we live in the land of the free, you should try to be Black like me.”Kevin Winter via Getty Images Mickey Guyton performs at the 2021 Grammy Awards in Los Angeles.

Lisa Christensen had no say in the final outcome of the trial for former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin that ended Tuesday with his conviction on all three counts. On Thursday, Christensen spoke to reporters about her view from the bench, saying that she was happy with how the trial turned out. “I felt he was guilty,” she told “CBS This Morning.”She said it felt as if Chauvin “wasn’t taking the warnings” that Floyd’s life was at risk seriously. She told KARE 11 that her “heart broke a little bit” when Judge Peter Cahill told her she was actually an alternate juror. In her view the jurors took their responsibilities seriously and did not socialize much with one another between proceedings in the trial.

Shane Smith, the co-founder of Vice Media, sold his Mediterranean-style Los Angeles home this week for $48.7 million, a record high for Santa Monica and the surrounding community. Mr. Smith, 51, along with interior designer Kerry Joyce, completely renovated the 14,000-square-foot home, Mansion Global reported in February, when the property was first listed for $50 million.

Brian Kilmeade discussed the fatal shooting of Daunte Wright and Ma’Khia Bryant on Thursday on Fox & Friends (Fox news)A host on Fox News has suggested that those protesting against police violence towards Black Americans should never be allowed to call 911 again. The comments came as Fox & Friends discussed the fatal shootings of Daunte Wright and Ma’Khia Bryant on Thursday, as the presenters made reference to ongoing unrest over the killings. You should be barred from — anyone who says that, you are no longer allowed to use 911,” Brian Kilmeade responded.

Review: There was more to Tiny Tim than tiptoeing through the tulips
For a few years in the late 1960s, the performance artist Herbert Khaury — known professionally as Tiny Tim — was ubiquitous on television, appearing on just about every variety show and talk show. Treated by many as a joke — or a freak — Tiny Tim was essentially a cult act who accidentally became a sensation. Johan von Sydow’s documentary “Tiny Tim: King for a Day” zips through Khaury’s story in just over an hour, leaving out too much to be called comprehensive. The rocket ride to stardom began in early 1968 on the hip sketch show “Laugh-In,” where Tiny Tim sang “Tiptoe Through the Tulips” while strumming a ukulele. Seeing Tiny Tim for a few seconds in a “Laugh-In” or “Tonight Show” retrospective makes him look like an inexplicable oddity.

Remember when ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ used to be great?
And another show is NOT “The Handmaid’s Tale,” which returns to Hulu for its fourth season on Wednesday. She’s not just Wonder Woman; at times she’s Wile E. Coyote, walking out from under an anvil or a metal safe once again. AdvertisementWatching the new batch of episodes, I began to think of “The Handmaid’s Tale” as a genre series, and not in a good way. Rather than a nefariously ingenious nightmare world, one that frighteningly reflects off of the real world, the Gilead of “The Handmaid’s Tale” is now starting to seem more like Gotham City. Early on, the torture of “The Handmaid’s Tale” felt as though it was in service of the vision of a country driven to objectify and hurt women.
Ranking the 2021 British Oscar nominees’ American accents, from cracking to dodgy
Six British actors are up for Oscars in 2021 for playing American characters. Riz Ahmed (“Sound of Metal”), Vanessa Kirby (“Pieces of a Woman”), Carey Mulligan (“Promising Young Woman”) and Gary Oldman (“Mank”) are nominated in the lead categories. Dominic West’s American accent was so iffy on Showtime’s “The Affair” that it seemed to vanish at random. Meanwhile, Americans have done bang-up accents playing British prime ministers on Netflix’s “The Crown.” John Lithgow was superb as Winston Churchill and Gillian Anderson just killed it as Margaret Thatcher. If the nominations were based on accents, perhaps only half this year’s British-as-American Oscar nominees would have made the cut.

'Rutherford Falls' mixes humor, culture clash, native voices
Schur (“Parks and Recreation”) and Helms worked together on “The Office” and know what makes for appealing TV. But when they began to develop the concept of “Rutherford Falls,” they saw what was missing: Teller Ornelas. She was finishing a three-year contract as a “Superstore” writer and producer and planned to develop a Native American anthology series when the invitation came to join with Schur and Helms. “It’s very rare that you get the call in the beginning of the process where they say, ‘Hey, we have half an idea.

The pair would live together in San Francisco for the rest of Gunn’s life. What paradise life could be for a young, successful gay poet in San Francisco in those pre-Aids years!

Kavanaugh wrote the SCOTUS opinion holding that juveniles can be sentenced to life without parole. Justice Brett Kavanaugh wrote what Mark Joseph Stern, Slate's staff writer covering courts, called the "dishonest and barbaric" majority opinion (pdf).

FOX News Photo Provides Graphic Evidence of Their Racism and Fear Mongering
The reputation for rampant racism at Fox News has been well established over many years. On Thursday morning Fox News provided additional evidence of their embrace of overt bigotry.

Fox News ran numerous segments on these subjects that they repeatedly - and falsely - described as "putting a target" on the backs of police.

Ted Cruz has been accused of a lot of things: being the Zodiac Killer; being from Canada; being a churlish Sea Monkey that grew out of control in a secret Area 51 lab before escaping into the forest with a family-size bag of Bugles and a sixer of Zima; being the son of a key JFK assassination conspiracist; spending the past four years hiding in Donald Trump’s Underoos like a colicky baby wallaby; having the personality of a clammy loaf of reduced-salt Wonder Bread; running away to Cancun when his home state was in crisis; having a black, bloodless knot of a heart the size of a runty chickpea. The list goes on. But one thing few people have ever accused Cruz of is forthrightness. Case in point: Republicans, once again, are trying to pretend the stuff you saw them do just a few short years ago—stuff like run up the deficit and block Barack Obama’s federal and Supreme Court nominations—never really happened.
Earth Day is Now Over a Half-Century Old: Looking Back at the Beginnings
By the 1990s it had become an international celebration, and on Earth Day 2020, over 100 million people around the world observed the 50th anniversary in what is referred to as the "largest online mass mobilization in history." The holiday was originally suggested by peace activist John McConnell who proposed using the spring equinox as a day to honor the Earth and the concept of peace. Denis and his staff quickly developed the event beyond the original idea for a teach-in, and the first Earth Day was born. My high school art teacher heard about it and encouraged students to make artwork to celebrate the occasion. On the same day in April 1970, iconic striptease artist, Gypsy Rose Lee, died in Los Angeles and Melania Knavs (later, Trump) was born in Yugoslavia.
We Are Fighting for a World Where Ma’Khia Bryant Would Have Lived
As many were celebrating the Minneapolis jury’s decision to convict Derek Chauvin for his murder of George Floyd while others insisted that a conviction would not build a more just world, Ma’Khia died in a local hospital. Two weeks before Hill’s killing, Columbus police killed 23-year-old Casey Goodson, Jr. as he returned home from running family errands. But that’s not what policing offers Black girls like Ma’Khia. We are fighting to build a world where Ma’Khia’s needs, and the needs of the girls around her, are met. We are fighting for a world in which Ma’Khia could still be making TikTok videos and showing off her hair-styling techniques.

Meet 'Nomadland' director Chloé Zhao, who could make Oscar history (and was Spike Lee's student)
She already made history as the first woman of color nominated in the category at the Academy Awards. If she wins, she'll become only the second woman ever to earn best director, after Kathryn Bigelow ("The Hurt Locker") in 2010. Speaking to USA TODAY in February, Zhao – who's next helming Marvel's "Eternals" – humbly shrugged off any mention of potential milestones. "What I like about Spike is that he doesn't really sugarcoat things," Zhao says. But Zhao also channeled her "inner self through Fern," namely her constant desire to "see what's beyond the horizon."

CNN's Keilar refers to girl attacked by Ma'Khia Bryant as being 'so close to Ma’Khia when she was shot'
CNN anchor Brianna Keilar was pilloried on social media Thursday after referring to the girl who was nearly stabbed by Ma'Khia Bryant Tuesday as merely someone who "was so close to Ma'Khia when she was shot." In an interview with left-wing author Ibram X. Kendi, Keilar appeared to agree with his opinion that the Columbus, Ohio police officer who shot the 16-year-old Bryant inappropriately used deadly force. "I look at that video and ask if that were my child or if my child were the child in pink who was so close to Ma’Khia when she was shot, what would have happened?"

Publisher pauses Philip Roth biography promotion after author accused of sexual assault
A publisher has paused its support for a new book about novelist Philip Roth after its author, Blake Bailey, was accused of rape and sexual misconduct by multiple women. In light of them, we have decided to pause the shipping and promotion of ‘Philip Roth: The Biography’ pending any further information that may emerge,” W.W. Norton & Company said in a statement to NBC News on Thursday. Backlash was swift, as the writer was dropped from his literary agency, the Story Factory, and lost the support of his publisher, The Los Angeles Times reported. The literary biographer received a Guggenheim Fellowship to work on his biography of Cheever, which later won the National Book Critics Circle Award in Biography in 2009. Bailey, who spent extensive amounts of time with Roth, began working on his biography in 2012, according to The Associated Press.
Kaul to launch clergy sex abuse probe
MILWAUKEE (AP) — Attorney General Josh Kaul plans to launch an investigation into clergy sexual assault across Wisconsin’s five Catholic dioceses, perhaps as early as next week. “I hope you will welcome that review.”Clergy sexual abuse survivors and their allies have long demanded that Kaul open an investigation. Except for Superior, all Wisconsin Catholic dioceses along with St. Norbert Abbey and the Society of Jesus have published lists of clergy with “credible” allegations against them. Clergy sexual abuse in Wisconsin has come under renewed scrutiny since a man who accused three priests from St. Norbert Abbey in DePere of sexually abusing him in the 1980s killed himself last year. Representatives from the other dioceses and St. Norbert Abbey didn’t immediately respond to messages from the Journal Sentinel on Thursday.

Oscar slate holds ‘firsts’ for Asian actors, filmmakers
(AP Photo/Chris Pizzello)It may be hard to believe that there are still many “firsts” left to check off after 93 years of the Academy Awards, and yet this year there were a handful for Asian actors and filmmakers. Steven Yeun (“Minari”) became the first Asian American actor to be nominated for best actor. Riz Ahmed (“Sound of Metal”) is the first Muslim to be nominated for best actor.

Second time’s a charm for ‘How I Met Your Father’
Back in 2014, CBS commissioned a pilot for “How I Met Your Dad,” a spinoff of its hit sitcom “How I Met Your Mother.” The pilot starred Greta Gerwig and Drew Tarver, and it was narrated by Meg Ryan, but CBS didn’t fall in love, and no other outlet picked it up. Now, the spinoff is back in play in a big way. Hulu has ordered 10 episodes of “How I Met Your Father,” starring Hilary Duff as a woman telling her son how she met his dad and describing her group of close friends. The framing material is set in the future, as it was on the first series, so that the long story Duff is telling her son takes place in 2021. The series is created by Isaac Aptaker and Elizabeth Berger of “This Is Us,” with the creators of “How I Met Your Mother,” Carter Bays and Craig Thomas, in the mix as executive producers.

The scenes set in an aeroplane cockpit appear to have been shot in somebody’s bathroom. The flying saucers themselves were probably improvised out of abandoned pieces of tin cutlery.

The Oscars' 10 worst best-picture winners ever, ranked (we're talking about you, 'Crash')
Knowing that the actual best picture unfortunately doesn't always win, here are the 10 worst winners that the Oscars have awarded, ranked according to comparative terribleness. When people speak of an “Oscar movie,” “Out of Africa” is the kind of thing you automatically think of – for better or worse. If that’s all it takes to win Oscar, “The Cannonball Run” should have cleaned up. Making matters worse, it stole a best picture win from “Brokeback Mountain,” a film that treated gay romance with heart and care. 'The Broadway Melody' (1929)The second best picture winner was the first sound movie to win Oscar, following the silent film “Wings.” It easily could have won worst picture, too.

Hollywood Is Leaving Money On The Table By Not Prioritizing Diversity, New Study Shows
Diversity and representation are both a moral imperative and, according to a new study, an economic necessity for Hollywood. Viewers are demanding that the pop culture they consume better reflects America’s diversity, meaning that when Hollywood doesn’t prioritize accurate representation, it’s leaving money on the table and hurting its bottom line. The Hollywood Diversity Report was released Thursday, the latest edition of an annual study of the relationship between Hollywood’s bottom line and diversity in front of and behind the camera, from UCLA professors Darnell Hunt and Ana-Christina Ramón. Their newest report examined global box office revenue and viewership numbers of the top 185 films released in theaters and on major streaming platforms in 2020. Perhaps more crucially — since the pandemic closed most movie theaters around the world in 2020 — the same pattern held when examining the top movies released on streaming platforms.

Review: Ed Helms and Patti Harrison make a perfect platonic match in ‘Together Together’
Rather, as an open Anna (Patti Harrison) spills her proclivity for thieving pens and her experience of putting her baby up for adoption while in high school to a perplexed Matt (Ed Helms), she’s interviewing to become his surrogate. For Matt, Anna represents his third attempt at fatherhood — his previous eight-year relationship came to naught and Beckwith’s slight script never divulges the other try. The easeful, unvarnished rapport Helms and Harrison generate through their touching performances is the steady cradle to this brisk two-hander. The love burrowing inside “Together Together” is platonic, and the separate lifelong disappointments felt by Anna and Matt are shared but less entangled. For all the sizable gains Beckwith accrues building out Anna and Matt’s platonic companionship, she loses as much underdeveloping the intriguing supporting players.

'Rutherford Falls' ushers in era of Native American representation on TV: 'We've been ready'
New TV series Peacock's "Rutherford Falls" (now streaming) will increase Native American representation in media both on- and offscreen.

Is 'Together Together' the beginning of new genre the platonic rom-com?
"Together Together" is everything you could want in a romantic comedy – minus the romance. We've come to expect the traditional kind of romantic comedy from the likes of Nora Ephron and Nancy Meyers classics, and newer hits like "Set It Up" and "Long Shot." In a typical romantic comedy they'd realize they're in love, raise the child together and live happily ever after. A relationship not continuing on over the horizon is seen as a failed relationship, Beckwith adds – a notion "Together Together" chips away at.

The tech entrepreneur and investor did note one exception: He could also likely be known as the dad to his and Williams’ 3-year-old daughter, Alexis Olympia. “I’ll be a self-made billionaire one day and most people will still know me as Serena’s husband (Or Olympia’s dad) and that’s fine by me,” he tweeted. Williams praised his decision at the time, tweeting that she was “so proud.”“I know Olympia will be too,” she added.

After more than a decade of telling other people’s stories, Josh Breckenridge has found a perfect vehicle for his own bicoastal narrative. Though the song is rooted in his own experiences, he hopes his “tale of torn hearts and minds” will resonate with anyone who leaves their hometown to pursue a personal or professional dream. “I think the best kind of song is one that hits home with the listener, no pun intended,” Breckenridge told HuffPost. He also plans to take the stage in “Come from Away” again on Broadway once it’s safe to do so. “Each song is a scar, an individual piece to the puzzle of me ? the bold, the buoyant, the weak and the strong.”

Review: Pop singer fights off werewolf tendencies in 'Bloodthirsty'
Lauren Beatty is Grey, an emerging pop star who's starting work on her second album. She's also battling visions of turning into a werewolf, and being a cog in the music industry machine is probably more than enough to cause hallucinations of becoming a monster. She is summoned to work with Vaughn (Greg Bryk), a former boy-bander whose career went dark after he was accused of murdering his musical protégé. There are a few things holding "Bloodthirsty" back, however: Grey never operates or fills the room like a pop star of any magnitude, and Vaughn doesn't have the swagger of even an aging boy-band member. "Bloodthirsty" never becomes the savage music industry satire it could be.

Children of a Lesser God, the deafness drama loved by the Oscars – and hated by the deaf
The six Oscar nominations this year for Sound of Metal make it the most broadly acclaimed film on the subject of deafness in 35 years. Even so, it’s on the level of representation – not just in front of the camera but behind it – that Sound of Metal has triggered some disappointment among deaf activists. On the surface, 1986’s Children of a Lesser God, the previous Best Picture nominee on this theme, looks to have Sound of Metal beat in this department. When she collected the trophy, and gave her acceptance speech in sign language, it was taken as something of a watershed moment. Within deaf culture, these portrayals have often been critiqued as a kind of cultural appropriation, and the Academy’s love castigated as a way to reward anyone but the deaf for their engagement with deaf issues.

Tom Jones review, Surrounded by Time: Covers album is a triumph of experience
After his wife Linda died in 2016, Tom Jones feared he would never sing again. Without Linda, Jones suspected that even his well-oiled songs would stick in his throat. Surrounded by Time is the fourth album Jones has made with Ethan Johns, the producer who resurrected the Welshman’s career with a trio of rootsy Americana records. He’s a modern Dylan, tracing the arc of popular culture through from when video killed the radio star, reality killed the video star and reality TV star Donald Trump killed reality with his “alternative facts”. It contains the obvious gag that Lazarus couldn’t make a comeback without Jesus (Jones couldn’t without Johns).

'Watershed' year for Hollywood diversity amid pandemic streaming boom
Darnell Hunt, co-author of the Hollywood Diversity Report, said it was "encouraging to see skyrocketing numbers this year in front of the camera" for women and people of color. "People of color and women made tremendous strides among film leads since the last report, cementing 2020 as a watershed moment for diversity in this important employment arena," the report said. And at nearly 48 percent, lead roles played by female actors were also just shy of proportionate representation. With theaters closed for much of last year, film consumption dramatically shifted from multiplexes and art house cinemas to streaming platforms. That progress follows efforts in recent years including the #OscarsSoWhite campaign which criticized the Academy's habit of honoring white actors, and drew attention to its mainly white male membership -- which is now being reformed.

Review: 'Together Together' a charming look at friendship, pregnancy
Adam GrahamDetroit News Film CriticNikole Beckwith's "Together Together" is an indie charmer that explores fatherhood, friendship and non-romantic love from a quirky, outside point of view. Ed Helms and Patti Harrison are wonderfully cast as a father and a surrogate mother who are not quite sure what the boundaries of their relationship during the course of the pregnancy should be. Helms plays Matt, a 45-year-old Gen-Xer who wants to start a family on his own. But over the course of the pregnancy, they become close friends — they even watch "Friends," which Anna has never seen — which leads to the sort of complications that come along with friendship. agraham@detroitnews.com@grahamorama'Together Together'GRADE: BRated R: R for some sexual references and languageRunning time: 90 minutesIn theaters

Review: S.F. Ballet’s latest program makes up for stalled centerpiece with other work
On paper, San Francisco Ballet’s Program 5 may not seem especially noteworthy: The planned centerpiece, a world premiere by rising British choreographer Cathy Marston, got hamstrung by COVID-19 safety protocols and couldn’t be filmed. In recent decades, the ballet world has been glutted by what we might call the school of relentlessly busy choreography, in which limbs fly frenziedly and within two minutes it’s all a numbing blur. Tiit Helimets takes Yuan Yuan Tan’s hand, and she suddenly faces him to jackknife into a tremendous high arabesque. Ballet this past decade, you will recognize Zahorian, Nedvigin and Domitro as three of its most technically crisp now-retired dancers. San Francisco Ballet’s Program 5: Helgi Tomasson’s “7 for Eight,” Cathy Marston’s “Snowblind” and David Dawson’s “Anima Animus.” Available to stream at 6 p.m. Thursday, April 22.

Anthony Powell, Oscar-winning designer of exotic costumes for a string of films including Tess, Death on the Nile and 101 Dalmatians – obituary
But he had most fun working with Glenn Close on the series of costumes she wore in 101 Dalmatians (1996) and 102 Dalmatians (2000), as the fur-crazed Cruella de Vil, for which he adapted and exaggerated haute couture styles to outrageous and comic effect. He recalled that when Glenn Close was asked to play Cruella, she asked him whether he thought she should do it: “I said, ‘When in our entire careers have we been given carte blanche to completely go over the top? Wouldn’t that be fun?’ ”For the first Dalmatians film, Powell, working with his longtime collaborator, the costume maker Barbara Matera, created eight costumes for Cruella, ranging from Chanel-inspired tweed to beaded organza gowns, mostly featuring animal motifs and accompanied by lavish quantities of fur, feathers or snakeskin. “When we started,” Powell recalled, “Glenn said the most chilling thing to me. Naturally, though, in the course of the film she gradually reverts to the old Cruella.
Into the Labyrinth, review: Dustin Hoffman, a kidnapped Italian girl and a very stupid plot
Dir: Donato Carrisi. Starring: Toni Servillo, Dustin Hoffman, Valentina Bellè, Vinichio Marchione, Luis Gnecco. It’s largely in Italian, with just a sprinkling of English dialogue to showcase a guest-starring Dustin Hoffman, who has an avuncular, underwritten role as some kind of forensic psychiatrist. Miles from those heights, this film’s laughably convoluted plot is scrabbling around in a screenwriter’s basement, its path littered with daft irrelevancies. To save effort, they’re the same person — the Italian airport-paperback maestro Donato Carrisi, in his second self-adapted feature.
The Oscars host may be a thing of the past – good
There’s always a buzz in the air the day after the Oscars. But now, it seems, the Oscars host may be no more. And it clearly rose to the Academy’s expectations – there was no host in 2020 and neither will there be at this weekend’s ceremony. Now, an Oscars host has to justify their presence through an increasingly ludicrous set of stunts. No one’s in any doubt that the Oscars are, at the end of the day, just an industry patting itself on the back.

Opinion: Why airing Black wounds on screen isn't 'trauma porn'
We exhaled when, instead of a White cop, Chris's Black friend Rod Williams (played by comedian Lil Rel Howery) emerged from the cruiser to provide rescue.

But like everything in the new bizarre world of Spacey, this legal proceeding turned surreal quickly.

Jessie Buckley and Josh O’Connor Star in a Romeo & Juliet Uniquely Suited to the Times
“I had this irrational idea of what Romeo and Juliet was,” he admits. I always felt that it is quite easy for particularly Romeo to be a little bit whiny. But he was quickly won over by the prospect of taking the storied National Theatre stage alongside Buckley. They approached the idea of a filmed version with some trepidation; both have said they had little interest in a Romeo and Juliet film project. The change in course “suddenly felt a little bit underwhelming.” In hindsight, he chuckles, “there’s nothing underwhelming about it at all.

Emily Ratajkowski’s Latest Warm Weather Look Channels a Late ’90s Starlet
Photo: SplashNewsNew-mom Emily Ratajkowski stepped out yesterday in a classic, relaxed warm-weather look. True to her brand, she wore a cropped sheer shirt from her own label Inamorata (after all, Emrata’s signature is a midriff-baring look.)

How Leslie Odom Jr. Ruled the Red Carpets This Season
But one actor who’s managed to shine through it all is Leslie Odom Jr., a breakout red carpet star and a relative newcomer to best dressed lists. Yermagyan began working with Odom Jr. back at the 2018 Tony Awards, when he dressed him in a classic, black pinstriped suit. “We wanted to make a statement with each look,” Yermagyan says.

Elizabeth said she was determined to find her own success as a performer and didn’t want to ride on her sisters’ coattails. At the time, Ashley and Mary-Kate, 34, were becoming household names while playing Michelle Tanner on Full House.

Why is there a ketchup shortage?
When it comes to those little ketchup packets, most restaurants have. America is going through a great ketchup shortage right now, the Wall Street Journal reports. But that extra demand for packet-based ketchup has now led to a shortage. As a matter of fact, the shortage has seen ketchup packet prices skyrocket 13% since January 2020 and pushed ketchup sales to over $1 billion last year. But what is to be done about the great ketchup packet shortage?
How author Amy Tan makes her personal trauma universal
advertisement advertisementListen to the latest episode of Fast Company’s Creative Conversation podcast on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, RadioPublic, Google Podcasts, or Stitcher.

I never had that dream,” Tan says in the latest episode of Fast Company‘s podcast Creative Conversation. “If you’re writing about something that is based on trauma, these things get transmuted over time. But if you can go back and capture the freshest of that, it becomes a source for many different stories,” Tan says.
HBO Max sees subscribers surge due to Warner Bros. movies debuting direct to streaming
AT&T has reported that HBO and HBO Max had a terrific first quarter of 2021, reports Deadline.

As women directors enter the Oscar spotlight, here are 13 filmmakers to watch
Zhao won the Golden Globe for best director earlier this year as well as the top directing prize from the Directors Guild of America. Chloe Zhao speaks onstage IFP's 24th Gotham Independent Film Awards at Cipriani, Wall Street on December 1, 2014 in New York City. "Promising Young Woman" has garnered five Academy Award nominations, including best picture, best director and best original screenplay.

Hollywood loves a reboot - now Oscars show gets its turn
"We are here to make a case for why cinema matters," said Stacey Sher, one of the trio of Oscars producers. Netflix Inc's (NFLX.O) 1930s Hollywood drama "Mank" leads nominations with 10 nods in a best picture list that includes 1960s courtroom saga "The Trial of the Chicago 7," also from Netflix. Nevertheless, there are lot of downer topics (and) many of them are smaller films, slower films," said Pete Hammond, chief film critic for Deadline Hollywood. While Netflix clinched a leading 35 nominations, awards watchers say it may again end up seeing the top prize - best picture - slip away. "Nomadland," the Searchlight Pictures (DIS.N) film about the American van-dwelling community, has picked up most of the big awards leading up to the Oscars.

‘We’re buzzing!’ Brit Awards to welcome back music fans
LONDON (AP) — British music’s leading prize night next month will feature an audience of 4,000 people, in what will be the first major indoor music event in the country to welcome back a live audience since the coronavirus pandemic erupted more than a year ago. Organizers said they are giving away 2,500 tickets to essential workers from the Greater London area to mark their work through “the difficult times” of the pandemic. “Not only will we be celebrating the brilliant music and artists that have helped us through the pandemic, but we hope it will provide a path for the return of live music that fans and artists have so sorely missed,” said Geoff Taylor, the chief executive of the British Phonographic Industry and of the Brit Awards. “We’re buzzing about the show and working closely with government,” he added.

Grim list of deaths at police hands grows even after verdict
The verdict in the Chauvin case might not be quickly repeated, even as the list of those killed at the hands of police grows. The day after Bryant was fatally shot, at least two other people were also killed by police in the United States. On Wednesday morning, a deputy fatally shot and killed a Black man while serving a search warrant in eastern North Carolina. And in the San Diego suburb of Escondido, police said an officer fatally shot a man who was apparently striking cars with a metal pole. The boy, who was Latino, appeared to drop a handgun moments before the officer shot him.

Black Bear review – Aubrey Plaza hits career high in ingenious meta-movie
Or is the first act a film (or a dream, or a reverie) inspired by what happened in the second? Now there is a different situation, different people, and a different crescendo of sexual unease. We are seeing a very dysfunctional family here – Black Bear has something of Truffaut’s Day for Night, as well as Alvy Singer in Annie Hall, directing theatrical scenes based on his own life and never quite satisfied. Or is Black Bear suggesting that, as the star, Allison has the power; she is directing what happens, especially as she is able to make script alterations at the last moment. And the Black Bear of the title inevitably takes more than one form: a nickname, a metaphor for sexual danger, an actual flesh-and-blood bear.
Stowaway review – a devastating dilemma drives tense Netflix sci-fi
Ever since Sandra Bullock MacGyver’d her way from mid-orbit chaos back down to earth in Alfonso Cuarón’s show-stopping thriller Gravity, we’ve seen a rise in briskly efficient sci-fi competency porn. It’s a subgenre of films working off the thrill of watching high-stakes problem-solving, of professionals using their reality-rooted smarts to deal with fantastical situations. There’s something satisfyingly straight-to-the-point about the film, from musician turned director Joe Penna, following up his breakout debut Arctic with another no frills survival tale. Can Collette’s commander work with on-the-ground support to find the science to save them? We’re left a little adrift, the film ending less on a high or low and more of a huh?
Jim Parsons and Zachary Quinto: ‘Truman and Tennessee were lightning rods’
“It really was an intellectual friendship,” Truman Capote said of his 40-year relationship with the playwright Tennessee Williams. Their lifelong friendship – and occasionally bitter rivalry – is the subject of Lisa Immordino Vreeland’s artful documentary, Tennessee & Truman: An Intimate Conversation. Parsons is at home with his husband, Todd, in New York, while Quinto is in Ojai, California, with a noisy German shepherd puppy. ‘There’s a beautiful, brutal honesty about them’ ... Tennessee Williams and Truman Capote. Both men changed their names, for example: Capote taking his stepfather’s name, Williams adopting “Tennessee” as opposed to plain old Thomas.
‘It couldn’t be more relevant’: the unseen Richard Wright novel finally getting its due
He was one of most influential African American writers of the 20th century. The Man Who Lived Underground could hardly be more current in the America of 2021, given its focus on race and police violence. Its belated publication happens to coincide with the end of the trial of Derek Chauvin, the Minneapolis police officer accused of murdering George Floyd, an African American man. The novel follows Fred Daniels, an African American man framed by police for a double murder he did not commit. I don’t think you need to to be a literary critic to get it.
Madoff Talks: uncovering what the family of the late Wall Street fraudster knew
Ruth Madoff, the couple’s two sons and Bernard Madoff’s brother Peter all worked for the company. In the new book Madoff Talks, based on unprecedented access to Madoff and other key players, business journalist Jim Campbell suggests it may never be possible to disentangle the extent of the family’s knowledge from the web of lies Madoff spun. Madoff told the author he was “a product of the corrupt culture of Wall Street” and was himself a “constant critic” of that culture, which he confessed “certainly sounds strange coming from me”. Ruth Madoff told Campbell that she first heard of the fraud at a family meeting on the afternoon of 10 December 2008 when Madoff confessed his crime. Ruth Madoff now lives in the $3.8m waterfront Connecticut mansion of her former daughter-in-law, according to the New York Post.
The most awkward Oscars moments – ranked
Sacheen Littlefeather (1973)It used to be said that cool people don’t turn up to accept their Oscars. In 2018, she delivered it for the first time, and it was five minutes long, so maybe the Oscars had a point. As such, you could pick any of the times they appeared onstage together and accurately label it as historically awkward. And you will remember Sheena Easton’s performance of the theme song at the Oscars as the opposite of going back to basics. Ray Parker Jr’s theme was nominated for best song in 1985, but his performance bore zero resemblance to anything even remotely connected to Ghostbusters.

‘Together, Together’: A Pregnancy Rom-Com, Minus the Rom
“It’s weird to be perceived as hopeless in the moment when I’m actually incredibly hopeful,” says Matt (Ed Helms) to Anna (Patti Harrison), the surrogate carrying his baby. That he will then raise this kid as a single father is part of the film’s very slight gender-expectation-defying agenda. condescending, though that might have more to do with him registering as baffled, benign and a flat zero on the sexual-threat scale. “This show is so dumb” murmurs Anna as she and Matt watch their umpteenth episode of Matt’s favorite sitcom, Friends. And she’s absolutely right, about that show and this movie — call it The One Where Anna and Matt Have a Baby.

‘Rutherford Falls’: Ed Helms in a Culture Clash
In the new Peacock sitcom Rutherford Falls, Ed Helms and Jana Schmieding play best friends Nathan and Reagan, who grew up together in the titular northeast town named for his ancestor who famously brokered peace with her ancestors in the (fictional) Minishonka Nation. “Oh, to lead that white dude life!”Nathan and Reagan’s contrasting experiences are meant to be the comic engine that drives Rutherford Falls, as well as a symbol for all the ways the town’s white and indigenous populations do and don’t get along.

And Reagan is treated as Nathan’s narrative equal, even though Jana Schmieding isn’t nearly as famous as Ed Helms. The full first season of Rutherford Falls premieres April 22th on Peacock.

Flashback: The Flying Burrito Brothers Cut ‘Wild Horses’ Before the Rolling Stones
When Keith Richards first met Gram Parsons in 1968, he felt he’d known him all his life. How far that effect went has been a hot debate between fans over years, particularly when “Wild Horses” enters the conversation. The song is the final track on the Flying Burrito Brothers’ Burrito Deluxe, a year before the Stones’ version was released on Sticky Fingers — an album that turns 50 years old this week. You can hear it in ‘Dead Flowers,’ ‘Torn and Frayed,’ ‘Sweet Virginia,’ and ‘Wild Horses,’ which we gave to Gram to put on the Flying Burrito Brothers record Burrito Deluxe before we put it out ourselves.”Parsons also explained the song’s genesis months before he died in 1973, claiming he heard it the night of Altamont, when the Flying Burrito Brothers and the Stones both played the ill-fated festival. It takes on a heavier feel from the Stones’ version, with Parsons’ vocals sounding as if they’ve been dipped in whiskey and left to dry in the desert.
Music Festivals Are Back, But Their Covid Risks Are All on You
In 2017, a stage diver landed on a man’s head at a punk music festival in New Jersey. Will we see an explosion in these types of liability lawsuits in the coming months, as music festivals come roaring back around the world, bringing an increased risk of Covid-19 cases with them? The answer is largely not — because festivals have preempted such scenarios. When asked why, a Summerfest organizer responded that the event’s “materials, including the website, will be updated as we get closer to the opening of Summerfest 2021,” which is scheduled for September. Festivals’ protective language around Covid isn’t unique to their attendees, either: Benoualid works on contracts for artist clients, who are facing their own set of tightened rules.

What Are NFTs? Here's What You Need To Know About The Latest Trend In Cryptocurrency

Daniel Baker and Joel Martinez — also known as Desus Nice and The Kid Mero — aren’t your standard late-night TV hosts. The Bronx natives behind Showtime’s “Desus & Mero” were first discovered on social media and rose to acclaim with their podcast “Bodega Boys.” They specialize in off-the-cuff commentary, alluding to an imaginary “problematic light” when they feel their jokes cross into questionable territory. It’s their nod to cancel culture. In this conversation with Kara Swisher, the duo discusses why slurs are not comedy and whether they fear being “canceled.” They also share why they left Viceland and took their act to Showtime, how Andrew Yang is treating New York “like a science project,” and what they’ve learned in their trajectory from the sidelines of Twitter to a premium cable slot.

Tempest Storm, the fiery redhead known as a burlesque icon who starred in early Russ Meyer films, has died.

LeBron James faces backlash over 'YOU'RE NEXT' tweet about Ohio police officer
Here's what you need to know as you start your day ...LeBron James accused of inciting violence with 'YOU'RE NEXT' tweet targeting Ohio police officerLos Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James faced intense backlash Wednesday over a now-deleted tweet targeting a Columbus, Ohio, police officer involved in the shooting death of 16-year-old Ma'Khia Bryant. "YOU’RE NEXT #ACCOUNTABILITY," the NBA icon wrote with an hourglass emoji over an image of one of the officers at the scene of Bryant's shooting. James was accused by critics of leveraging his massive Twitter following to target the officer. "Lebron James is inciting violence against an Ohio police officer. New York Post reporter Steve Nelson followed up by asking Psaki whether Biden believes "it’s important to accept his own culpability" for perpetuating systemic racism.
Most officers never fire their guns. But some kill multiple people — and are still on the job.
Policing experts said that officers with multiple shootings may work in high-risk units like SWAT, where they could face violent, unpredictable situations. Police accountability advocates point to examples of officers, like Myers, who have faced no consequences for multiple shootings despite allegations of potential misconduct. In Mesa, just five officers fired their guns in 23 incidents over that period. In Columbus, officers with multiple shootings fired in 74 encounters during the same period — the most of the eight cities. In Seattle, officers who fired more than once were involved in nearly a third of police shootings from 2014 to 2021.
Eva Mendes stirs controversy with 'favorite parenting quote' about spanking
(Photo: REUTERS/Gus Ruelas)Eva Mendes's favorite parenting advice has provoked disagreement on social media: Don’t spank your kids. I’m not often asked what my favorite parenting quote is, but I’ll post it anyway. The quote, credited to mom blogger Racheous read, "Spanking does for a child’s development what hitting a spouse does for a marriage." If nothing else, says Brown, spanking sends mixed messages to children, especially when disciplining them for hitting other children. "When parents spank, they're usually in 'fight' mode, not 'flight,'" says Ziegler.

Minari Is Dedicated to Grandmas Everywhere — And Everyone Loves Grandmas
Minari is a well-made film — nicely acted, solidly structured, interesting, and a mild emotional workout. It’s about a South Korean family trying to make a go of farming in 1980s Arkansas, and it’s semi-autobiographical, based on the memories of the talented writer-director Lee Isaac Chung. For me, Minari’s entire appeal is all in the specifics — South Korean family plus Arkansas farm plus 1980s. But the ultimate symbol is, of course, the Korean minari plant grown by the grandmother down by the creek, as she scorns the “stupid Americans” who don’t know about its life-giving properties. Did I mention the film is dedicated to “grandmas everywhere”?

Netflix's new movie Stowaway boasts a star-studded cast, a space setting, and a white-knuckle premise.

Popcorn Salad is fairly simple to make, as the most labor intensive step is chopping up the celery and snap peas. >Crunchy Snap Pea Popcorn Salad Molly Yeh via Food Network Notes To avoid soggy kernels, Popcorn Salad is best served right after preparing.

Sarah Lancashire’s Catherine Cawood, of the BBC series Happy Valley (which found an eager audience on Netflix), seems most reminiscent of Mare. But the most interesting characters aren’t the ones who always do the right thing.

Review: Anna Kendrick is lost, and found, in space in smart sci-fi ‘Stowaway’
This near-future is far enough away that Martian commutes are somewhat frequent, and it’s not just cute little rovers like Perseverance trundling across the Red Planet’s surface. This is the third trip to the nascent Martian colony for commander Marina Barrett (an impressive if underwritten Toni Collette). But it’s also near enough that the practicalities of interplanetary travel are much the same as they are right now. Paradoxically, as “Stowaway” becomes more overtly thrilling, it becomes less interesting, certainly to those of us nerds who are in it for the moral relativism arguments and the cool science.

Judas and the Black Messiah: Why Shaka King’s potent historical drama should win the Oscar
If there’s one film this year that deserves to challenge this perception, however, it is Judas and the Black Messiah.

The “Judas” of the title refers to Bill O’Neal, a car thief who is manipulated by the FBI into infiltrating the Black Panthers and betraying Hampton. It is his best performance to date, further proof that Kaluuya is one of the standout talents of his generation.

Earth Day is Now Over a Half-Century Old: Looking Back at the Beginnings
By the 1990s it had become an international celebration, and on Earth Day 2020, over 100 million people around the world observed the 50th anniversary in what is referred to as the "largest online mass mobilization in history." The holiday was originally suggested by peace activist John McConnell who proposed using the spring equinox as a day to honor the Earth and the concept of peace. Denis and his staff quickly developed the event beyond the original idea for a teach-in, and the first Earth Day was born. My high school art teacher heard about it and encouraged students to make artwork to celebrate the occasion. On the same day in April 1970, iconic striptease artist, Gypsy Rose Lee, died in Los Angeles and Melania Knavs (later, Trump) was born in Yugoslavia.

How Prince Harry's UK Trip Changed His Strained Relationships With William and Charles
Prince Harry's return to England last week for his grandfather Prince Philip's funeral sparked a lot of public interest over whether Harry, his father Prince Charles, and his brother Prince William would repair their strained relationships at all following Harry and his wife Meghan Markle's big Oprah interview that aired in March. The couple spoke openly about how the royal family and British tabloids' treatment of them led them to step down from their senior royal family roles permanently. Strikingly, Harry told Oprah point blank that he believes his father and brother are “trapped” in the institution. Scobie reported for Harper's Bazaar today that Harry did have “conversations” with Charles and William following Philip's service on Saturday. That's false, a source close to Harry told Scobie.

An activist, a traitor, and two great actors in ‘Judas and the Black Messiah’
AdvertisementNow Stanfield is the “Judas” part of “Judas and the Black Messiah,” a ferocious and first-rate drama about the murder of Black Panther Fred Hampton by the Chicago police in December 1969. His “Get Out” castmate Daniel Kaluuya is getting raves and nominations for playing Hampton, and deservedly so — it’s a huge performance, electric in the public moments and tender in private. LaKeith Stanfield (in the foreground) with Daniel Kaluuya in a scene from "Judas and the Black Messiah." The real Johnson and her son, political activist Fred Hampton Jr., served as consultants on “Judas and the Black Messiah,” with the result that the “messiah” comes to seem disarmingly life-sized.

Man suspected in Gardner museum heist set free
Agents told Turner he was a suspect in the infamous 1990 art heist at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum and could receive leniency if he returned the stolen masterpieces, according to court records. But on Wednesday, Turner, 52, his dark hair now tinged with gray, walked out of Boston’s federal court a free man after a judge ruled during a resentencing hearing that the 21 years he already served were enough. On Wednesday, Stearns sentenced Turner to the time he had already served and ordered his release. Previously, while at a New York federal penitentiary, Turner was an instructor for the Victim Impact Program. Outside the courtroom, Turner’s lawyer declined to comment on the paintings or allegations that Turner may have been involved in the heist.

The verdict in the Chauvin case might not be quickly repeated, even as the list of those killed at the hands of police grows.

And in the San Diego suburb of Escondido, police said an officer fatally shot a man who was apparently striking cars with a metal pole.
