Why Freddie Highmore's Golden Globe Nomination Has Been a Long Time Coming

The Golden Globe nominations were unveiled on Monday, and while there are a few snubs on the list, for once, Freddie Highmore is not among them. After years of getting passed over for recognition of his performance as Norman Bates on Bates Motel, the talented 25-year-old earned his first Golden Globe nomination for best actor in a drama series for his role on The Good Doctor. It only took one episode to get me hooked on the ABC medical drama, and that is largely due to Highmore's standout performance as Dr. Shaun Murphy, a surgical resident with autism. While the show's first episode sets the scene by showcasing Shaun's incredible mind and the prejudices he faces for being a doctor with autism, it is Highmore's final scene that really makes me sob uncontrollably. After applying for residency at San Jose St. Bonaventure Hospital, Shaun meets with a room full of

Sarah Paulson Says People Find Her Relationship With Holland Taylor 'Fascinating and Odd'

Sarah Paulson Says People Find Her Relationship With Holland Taylor 'Fascinating and Odd'
Sarah Paulson admits that her life is rather "unconventional," but that's not because she's dating Holland Taylor.

The 42-year-old actress is featured in Net-a-Porter’s digital magazine, The Edit, and talks about her longtime romance with the 74-year-old actress and their 32-year age difference.

"My life choices are, um, unconventional," she confides. "I’m with a much older person and people find that totally fascinating and odd, and, to me, it’s the least interesting thing about me."

Paulson adds, "But I do feel a bit unconventional."

The Emmy winner shares that when she first started dating Taylor, she was told that it could have a negative impact on her acting career. "Early on, when people found out I was with Holland, some said: 'I think you have to be careful, I’m afraid it’s going to affect your career negatively,'" she recalls. "I was like, 'What?' It never occurred to me at all."

10 Fight Club Facts You Never Knew

10 Fight Club Facts You Never Knew
Today, it's an oft-quoted classic, but Fight Club was only a modest success when it was released in 1999. Its cult film status was cemented by repeated VHS and DVD viewings, thanks to the brilliant performances by Brad Pitt, Edward Norton, and Helena Bonham Carter in David Fincher's adaptation of the novel of the same name. By now, we're all as familiar with the movie's twist as we are the whole bit in The Sixth Sense. Yes, there's the whole "first rule of Fight Club," but we've all shared anecdotes like the subversive frames hidden in the movie, or the Starbucks cups in every scene. Here, we look at 10 things you never knew about Fight Club.

The Producers courted four different directors.

It's hard to imagine anyone else behind the camera, but producers approached at least three other directors for the job before making a deal with David Fincher, who

The BBC Is Working On A Les Miserables TV Series

One of the biggest musicals of the decade is 2012’s Les Miserables, an adaptation of the hugely successful stage production featuring an all-star cast including Hugh Jackman, Anne Hathaway, Russell Crowe, Eddie Redmayne, Amanda Seyfried, Helena Bonham-Carter, Sacha Baron Cohen and many more. It was an awards magnet, too, achieving a whopping eight nominations at the Oscars that year and earning Hathaway a Best Supporting Actress gong.

You’d think that no one would attempt to top this surely definitive version of the story so soon then, but actually, you’d be wrong. According to industry insider The Knowledge, the BBC is working on a new TV series based on the original 19th century novel written by Victor Hugo. Screenwriter Andrew Davies – whose past credits include House of Cards and Bridget Jones’ Diary (so he’s clearly versatile) – is set to adapt the book, and the hunt for a cast has now begun.

Howards End review – timely, careful remake explores class and race

Question at the core of Em Forster’s work of who will inherit England has perhaps never been as relevant since he first posed it

Time is a funny thing. To watch the most famous film version of Em Forster’s Howards End now is to watch the 1910 novel overlaid with another layer of history. Merchant Ivory’s rendition came out in 1992 and cemented the pair’s reputation – born in 1985 with their adaptation of Forster’s A Room With a View – as the purveyor of sumptuous Edwardian goods for the contemporary masses.

To watch it now is to be almost overwhelmed by the branding. Every scene is limned in golden sunlight, every costume ripples and rustles to perfection, hair is huge, vowels are rounded and wherever you turn either Helena Bonham-Carter or Vanessa Redgrave are Bonham-Cartering or Redgraving to the fullest limits of the law.

Sandra Bullock to Play Texas State Senator Wendy Davis in “Let Her Speak”

Bullock on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon”: YouTube

Sandra Bullock will portray a contemporary feminist icon in her next project. The Oscar winner will play former Texas state senator Wendy Davis in the spec “Let Her Speak,” Variety confirms. Davis made national headlines in 2013 when she filibustered for 11 hours in order to delay an extremely restrictive anti-abortion bill in her home state.

Mario Correa wrote the spec script and Escape ArtistsTodd Black and Jason Blumenthal have signed on to produce. “The package will now be shopped to studios and should court several suitors over the next week,” the source reveals.

No director is attached to “Let Her Speak” yet but, considering the feminist forces that are Bullock and Davis, we’re pulling for a woman to helm the film.

Since the abortion bill filibuster Davis has become a well-known voice in politics and women’s issues. Just yesterday Cosmo published an op-ed she wrote detailing the ways women are specifically vulnerable to gun violence. Davis decided not to seek re-election to Texas’ state senate in 2014 and instead ran for the state’s governorship. She lost her bid to Greg Abbott, the exiting Texas Attorney General.

A transcript of Davis’ 2013 filibuster was published as “Let Her Speak” that same year.

Bullock won an Academy Award in 2010 for biopic “The Blind Side” and received a nomination for “Gravity” in 2014. You can catch her next in the all-female “Ocean’s Eleven” spinoff, “Ocean’s Eight.” The just-wrapped film hits theaters June 8 and also stars Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, Rihanna, Mindy Kaling, Sarah Paulson, Helena Bonham Carter, and Awkwafina. Bullock’s also signed on to star in “Birdbox,” a post-apocalyptic Netflix thriller from Oscar winner Susanne Bier (“In a Better World”).

Sandra Bullock to Play Texas State Senator Wendy Davis in “Let Her Speak” was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

Alien 3 to Mindhunter: David Fincher’s outsider protagonists

Ryan Lambie Nov 3, 2017

Netflix's Mindhunter is the latest example of the unique, outsider characters in the work of David Fincher...

When FBI agent Holden Ford (Jonathan Groff) sits down with convicted serial killer Edmund Kemper (Cameron Britton) in the Netflix series Mindhunter, he’s both terrified and fascinated. Kemper, serving multiple life sentences for a spate of brutal kidnappings and murders - including his own mother - could offer a valuable insight into a criminal mindset that was barely understood in the late 1970s. Ford hopes to use a series of interviews with Kemper, and convicts like him, to build up a psychological profile which could be used to help track down other serial murderers; it soon becomes apparent, however, that Ford’s fascination with Kemper runs beyond the strictly professional.

Woody Allen’s New Film Includes a Sexual Relationship Between an Adult and a 15-Year-Old Girl — Report

Woody Allen’s New Film Includes a Sexual Relationship Between an Adult and a 15-Year-Old Girl — Report
Woody Allen’s new movie, “Wonder Wheel,” doesn’t open until December, but he’s already at work on his next project starring Elle Fanning, Jude Law, Selena Gomez, Rebecca Hall, and Timothée Chalamet. The movie is reportedly called “A Rainy Day in New York,” and its story could end up resulting in another controversy for the director. Page Six reports the movie stars Law as a middle-aged married man who “makes a fool of himself over every ambitious starlet and model.” The 44-year-old character allegedly has a sexual relationship with a 15-year-old “concubine,” played by Fanning.

According to Page Six: “In the scene, the so-called concubine acknowledges her relationship with Law’s much-older character, but then protests that she is 21 years old. After a discussion about his infidelity, Fanning’s character then asks Law, ‘Were all these women for pleasure, or were you researching a project?'”
