Jessica Simpson Makes Everyone ‘Green with Envy’ Wearing Emerald Silk Robe in a Sultry Snap
Jessica Simpson is baring her holiday spirit.

The singer shared a sultry snap on Instagram on Friday in which she posed in an emerald green silk robe with white lace trimming that left little to the imagination.

The star completed her very glam boudoir look with red lips, blonde beach wave hair, smokey eyes and a peek of a cherry red bra.

Green with Envy @giannandreahair @joycebonelli,” she wrote in the caption.

Simpson’s makeup artist and frequent Kardashian collaborator, Joyce Bonelli, also shared a photo of the glamorous beauty on her Instagram.

The Last Word on ‘Sausage Party’

Yeah, I’m sure somebody’s going to Hell for making ‘Sausage Party‘, and I’m probably going there with them, although considering the options, I’ll take it. I’d rather be swinging on a star and carry honey-flavored mustard in a jar than be a fish or a pig, or a hot dog or a bun, or be that jar or honey mustard, or for that matter, pretty much any food one can think of. Of course, I know what happens out in the “Great Beyond”, the legendary place outside Shopwell’s supermarket where all the foods hope and prey that one day, they’ll be chosen by the gods to go to. The latest hallucinogenic-inspired piece of insanity from the writing team of Seth Rogen & Evan Goldberg, is an R-rated animated feature, about food. Sorta in the same way that ‘Toy Story‘ was about the world of

Filmmaker Robert Rodriguez To Return To Indie Roots To Make $7000 Feature

His debut movie El Mariachi was made for just $7000 in the early 1990s and now, twenty-five years on, it looks like Robert Rodriguez is attempting to repeat the feat. The Texan filmmaker, whose films since have included the likes of Desperado, From Dusk ‘Til Dawn, Sin City, and the forthcoming Battle Angel: Alita, will challenge five filmmakers, Scarlet Moreno, Alejandro Montoya Marin, Bola Ogun, Bonnie-Kathleen Ryan, and Josh Stifter to make a movie for just $7,000, with zero crew, very much like he did back in 1992 with ‘Mariachi’. Rodriguez will add himself to that list and also participate in the challenge. No idea as to what the new Robert Rodriguez $7000 film will be based around, but we wait with baited breath.

The original, El Mariachi New Robert Rodriguez $7000 Film On The Way

The filmmakers involved in the project will have just two weeks to make their features, which will eventually

Salma Hayek and Mary J. Blige on ‘Connecting to Other Women’ Through Their Characters

Salma Hayek and Mary J. Blige on ‘Connecting to Other Women’ Through Their Characters
Salma Hayek (“Beatriz at Dinner”) and Mary J. Blige (“Mudbound”) sat down for a chat for Variety’s “Actors on Actors,” presented by Google Home, which airs from Jan. 2 to Jan. 4 at 7 p.m. on PBS SoCal Koce.

Salma Hayek: I want to ask you a question that many times actors don’t even know themselves: Do you know why Dee Rees offered you this role in “Mudbound”?

Mary J. Blige: She told me that she offered me the role because she didn’t know anyone else that can play such a reserved, quiet but powerful woman at the same time. She saw that in me when she met me, and then she was at one of my concerts and she saw how explosive I was. Speaking to me later, I’m not that explosive. I’m just kind of quiet and reserved.

Hayek: What did you think when you read the script and you

Aviron Pictures Acquires ‘Destination Wedding’ With Keanu Reeves, Winona Ryder

Aviron Pictures Acquires ‘Destination Wedding’ With Keanu Reeves, Winona Ryder
David Dinerstein’s Aviron Pictures has acquired North American distribution rights to Victor Levin’s “Destination Wedding,” a romantic comedy reuniting Keanu Reeves and Winona Ryder. The deal also includes all English-speaking territories, including the United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa.

Reeves and Ryder, who appeared together in “Bram Stoker’s Dracula” and “A Scanner Darkly,” star in “Destination Wedding” as two miserable and unpleasant wedding guests who develop a mutual affection in spite of themselves.

Production on “Destination Wedding” wrapped earlier this summer in central California. The film was one of the most buzzed-about projects pitched at this year’s American Film Market.

Best known as a writer and exec producer, Levin’s track record includes “Mad Men,” “Survivor’s Remorse” and “Mad About You,” the 1990s NBC sitcom with Paul Reiser and Helen Hunt.

Aviron Pictures was launched in the run-up to the Cannes Film Festival this year by Dinerstein, an industry

Home Entertainment: ‘Valerian And The City Of A Thousand Planets’ 4K Uhd Blu-Ray Review

Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets arrived in cinemas during the summer and sadly didn’t quite hold up to the hype that had been built. This happens a lot with tent-pole titles, especially those directed by an established director, and can kill a film before its even reached the screen. It happened with the Wachowski’s Jupiter Ascending, and this year it sadly happened with Luc Besson’s Valerian.

It may have failed to set the box-office alight, but Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets has all the ingredients to be a success on home entertainment platforms. It’s a science-fiction action adventure – a genre that tends to convert well at home – it’s directed by Luc Besson and had mixed reviews, meaning that whilst many didn’t want to risk a wasted trip to the cinema, they are still curious to see just what the film is like.

Independent Spirit Awards 2018 Nominations -- See the Full List!

Independent Spirit Awards 2018 Nominations -- See the Full List!
Call Me by Your Name, Get Out and Lady Bird all had great showings at the 2018 Independent Spirit Award nominations!

The nominees were announced on Tuesday morning, with the Armie Hammer-ledCall Me by Your Name leading the pack with six nominations, followed closely by Jordan Peele's critically acclaimed, genre-bending thriller Get Out with five, and Lady Bird, with four.

All three films are competing for Best Picture, along with The Florida Project and The Rider. The Independent Spirit Awards are sometimes seen as a tea leaf for how the Academy Awards will sway -- the Best Picture winner of this show has gone on to also earn the distinction at the Oscars for five out of the last six years.

Peele earned a nod in the Best Director category, and the film's lead, Daniel Kaluuya is up for Best Male Lead, along with James Franco, who is nominated for The Disaster Artist. In the Best Female

Indie Spirit Award Nominations: “Lady Bird,” “The Rider,” and More

Lady Bird

The 2018 Independent Spirit Award nominations are in. Two of five Best Feature nominees are women-directed: Greta Gerwig’s universally adored “Lady Bird,” a coming-of-age story about a Sacramento-based teen, and Chloé Zhao’s “The Rider,” an award-winning portrait of a cowboy coping with the aftermath of a near-fatal rodeo accident.

Gerwig scored a Best Screenplay nod for “Lady Bird” — making her the only woman in this category — but her name was notably absent from the Best Director nominees. Zhao is the sole female filmmaker included in that category.

Atsuko Hirayanagi’s “Oh Lucy!” received a nod for Best First Feature. The comedy about a lonely office worker is the only woman-directed film up for that award.

Female filmmakers fared well in the Best Documentary category, where three of five films are helmed or co-helmed by women: Lana Wilson’s “The Departure,” Agnés Varda’s “Faces Places,” which she collaborated on with Jr,

Spirit Awards: ‘Call Me by Your Name,’ ‘Get Out’ Soar, ‘Shape of Water’ Shunned Again

Spirit Awards: ‘Call Me by Your Name,’ ‘Get Out’ Soar, ‘Shape of Water’ Shunned Again
Film Independent’s annual Spirit Awards has become less the consolation opportunity for small films and performances destined to lose at the Oscars the very next night, and more like a trial run. Five of the last six winners of the organization’s top prize have gone on to best picture glory, including “Moonlight” last year.

There’s no causality to speak of here. The Spirit Award nominations are determined by anonymous voting committees, while the winners are determined by Film Independent’s 6,200-strong membership (which can include anyone willing to plunk down the $95 annual dues). The only real Oscar boost any of Tuesday’s nominees gets is this very moment in the sun, which could illuminate, say, Robert Pattinson’s brilliant performance in “Good Time” (also nominated for the east-coast equivalent Gotham Awards), or Salma Hayek’s deserving turn in “Beatriz at Dinner,” for this Academy voter or that.

2018 Independent Spirit Awards Nominations Announced

Awards season is officially a go with one of the first high profile awards nominations being unveiled. The 2018 Independent Spirit Awards nominations have been revealed and Call Me by Your Name, Lady Bird, Get Out and Good Time lead the way.

While these awards are the first to be announced, they are one of the last to be dished out. The Independent Spirit Awards are traditionally dished out the day before the Oscars in Santa Monica, which this season will be on Saturday, March 3 2018.

Get Out

The nominations give us our very first indicator for what may be nominated for the Academy Awards, and last year they famously predicted Casey Affleck would bag Best Actor for Manchester By The Sea, and Moonlight would take Best Picture. Both bagged the Indies the previous day.

Here are this year’s Independent Spirit Awards nominations in full.

Oscars: Trying to Unpack a Stacked Lead Actress Field

Oscars: Trying to Unpack a Stacked Lead Actress Field
It was clear at least as early as Labor Day, when the Telluride Film Festival played host to a number of contenders, that this year’s lead actress Oscar race was going to be overloaded. By now it’s pretty much untenable; great work is sure to be left on the sidelines when the film Academy zeroes in on five names in January.

Fox Searchlight has two of the season’s top performances to work with. In “The Shape of Water,” Sally Hawkins plays a mute janitor who falls in love with a captive sea creature, dazzling viewers with the kind of expressive portrayal that’s catnip to voters. Meanwhile, in “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri,” Oscar winner Frances McDormand tackles the role of a world-weary, vengeance-seeking mother, which could particularly resonate in the current sociopolitical climate.

Margot Robbie, meanwhile, takes advantage of a ripe opportunity in “I, Tonya” to offer a deglamorized portrayal of disgraced Olympic
