  • Lagerfeld: Meryl Streep Passed On Oscar Dress When Chanel Refused to Pay

    What might Meryl Streep wear to the Oscars? Cross Chanel off the list. It seems that Streep was quite taken with an embroidered gray silk gown from Karl Lagerfeld’s most recent couture collection for the house. The dress was ordered, with Streep requesting an adjustment to the design — a higher neckline. Done. Such personalization is what couture is all about, along with exquisite execution, and, in the case of Chanel, Lagerfeld’s design brilliance. What more could the world’s greatest living actress want for Hollywood’s biggest night? Turns out, she wants a paycheck. With work on the dress well underway...

    A THR and National Research Group survey reveals how Clinton voters and Trump voters view the Oscars differently. And you thought Obamacare was a hot-button issue. According to a new THR poll, Americans are nearly as divided about the Oscars as they are about health care. The survey — conducted by the National Research Group, which in early February canvassed 800 people (half Hillary Clinton voters, half Donald Trump voters) for their opinions about movies, award shows and politics — reveals that two-thirds of Trumpsters have turned off their TV sets because of an actor giving a political speech at...

    Clooney, 55 - who is expecting twins with his wife Amal - referenced Trump's comments about Meryl Streep, after the actress hit out at the politician during her Golden Globes speech last month. The actor said, when quizzed on French TV show Rencontres de Cinema: “When Meryl spoke, everyone on that one side said, ‘well that’s elitist Hollywood speaking’. "Donald Trump has 22 acting credits in television. He collects $120,000 a year in his Screen Actors Guild pension fund. He is a Hollywood elitist." Clooney also added of the president's assistant: “Steve Bannon is a failed film writer and director....

    Warner Brothers is currently trying its best to convince Mel Gibson to direct the sequel to its 2016 comic book blockbuster, “Suicide Squad.” The studio that is courting Gibson for a big-budget franchise film seems to confirm what should have already been known: Gibson is back. After years of Hollywood’s rejection and industry hate, Gibson clawed his way back to the A-list by continuing to work and finance his projects outside of the Hollywood system. His latest project, the faith-based “Hacksaw Ridge,” has made big waves at the box office and at various awards ceremonies since its release in November.

But remember, Americans are increasingly more hopeful under “our president” then they were under “your president.”

    NBA great and cultural commentator Kareem Abdul-Jabbar writes a column for the Hollywood Reporter in which he examines the critically-acclaimed hit film La La Land and how it “misleads” on issues of race, romance and jazz. As someone who finds La La Land bold and daring, I can also admit that there are a few elements that warrant closer examination, particularly regarding its portrayal of jazz, romance and people of color. In fact, the better a work of art is, the more we must dissect it, because now we’re not just measuring box office, we’re assessing its proper place in...

"The Recording Academy, together with America's music makers, call on the president and Congress to help keep the music playing by updating music laws, protecting music education, and renewing America's commitment to the arts," Neil Portnow, the president of the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences, said during the 2017 Grammy Awards Sunday night.

    There are plenty of nonmusical plays coming to Broadway this spring, but producers are fretting that few of them are selling. Three of those plays — “Sweat,” “Indecent” and “Significant Other” — moved to Broadway because of strong reviews from former New York Times critic Charles Isherwood. But he and the paper have since parted ways, and there’s no guarantee that Ben Brantley, or whoever else reviews them for the Times, will be as kind. First, the numbers. The only play with a decent advance is “The Glass Menagerie,” starring Sally Field. Sources say it’s sold close to $3 million...

    Yeah, we’re thinking Rosie O’Donnell is definitely gunning for that “Saturday Night Live” guest gig. And she might deserve it too, after updating her official Twitter profile picture Thursday night with a scary-accurate Photoshopped image of her as White House Advisor Steve Bannon. Earlier this week it emerged via Politico that beleaguered White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer drew boss Donald Trump’s severe displeasure thanks to a Melissa McCarthy’s brutal, and highly celebrated portrayal of him on “SNL.” Trump’s problem? Not that she made him look like a petulant buffoon, but that she was “she.” Apparently, Spicer’s job is on...

When the announcer would introduce "Franken and Davis", he always added, "Brought to you by the American Communist Party. Sooner or later we will all be communist." That was the intro every time they appeared on SNL. The reaction of the crowd was always very hushed. It was almost like there was disbelief. I want someone in media to ask Al Franken...
