SAG Awards 2018 Full TV Nominations List: Netflix Dominates, While HBO’s ‘Big Little Lies’ Leads
Netflix binged on Screen Actors Guild Awards last year, winning four of the eight major TV awards — including both drama and comedy ensemble prizes (for “The Crown” and “Orange is the New Black”) — and it appears destined to repeat in 2018.

Netflix’s nominees were spread out among some of its most critically acclaimed series, including “The Crown” and “Stranger Things” on the drama side, and “Glow” and “Orange is the New Black” in comedy. The streamer also landed multiple nods with “Ozark” and “Grace and Frankie,” while SAG favorite Robin Wright, now the sole star of “House of Cards,” scored a nod.

Golden Globes 2018 Full TV Nominations List: ‘Big Little Lies,’ ‘Feud’ Lead Varied Pack
Big Little Lies” has a big little lead at the Golden Globes. The HBO series, which already won eight Primetime Emmys in September, now heads into the 2018 Globes with six nominations, more than any other program.

The “Big Little Lies” nomination haul comes just days after HBO confirmed that a second season of the show is now in the works. Behind it is FX’s “Feud: Bette & Joan,” which has four nods; then Hulu’s “The Handmaid’s Tale,” NBC’s “This Is Us,” and FX’s “Fargo,” with three apiece. Beyond that, the Hollywood Foreign Press spread the nomination love around, with many of TV’s most acclaimed shows receiving just one or two nominations. It’s the end result of the Peak TV era: With such a robust and eclectic offering of scripted TV shows from multiple outlets, HFPA voters opted to honor as many shows as possible.

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."

Sandra Bullock Unites Her Thieves in New Look at Ocean's Eight

This all-female heist thriller is following in the footsteps of last year's Ghostbusters, whose all-female cast was often the subject of online vitriol. When asked if this cast has gone through the same type of thing on this movie, Sandra Bullock had this to say.

"They did put (the Ghostbusters cast) through hell. And I'm still trying to figure out why. Forget what the final product was! There were four or five of the most talented comediennes in that film. Everyone should've just taken a breath and said,

‘The Post’ Reviews: What the Critics Are Saying

‘The Post’ Reviews: What the Critics Are Saying
Early reviews are in for “The Post,” and Steven Spielberg’s timely historical drama has opened to generally favorable reviews.

Despite being set in 1971 and centering on the Washington Post’s decision to publish the classified Pentagon papers, critics unanimously pointed out that the movie couldn’t resonate more with the present day.

In his review for Variety, Owen Gleiberman addressed the plot mirroring the current news cycle, writing, “‘The Post’ offers not so much a message as a warning: that freedom of the press is a fight that never stops, and that the force that keeps it going is the absolute die-hard belief in that freedom. When the press begins to accept restrictions, however grudgingly, it’s all but inviting itself to be muzzled.”

Many praised the film’s emphasis on free press being essential to democracy, along with the performances from stars Meryl Streep as the Post’s publisher Kay Graham and Tom Hanks as executive

“The Post” is another rousing outing from Steven Spielberg

The embargo has finally lifted, ladies and gentlemen! We can at long last discuss The Post, the new Steven Spielberg film, starring Tom Hanks and Meryl Streep. Yes, this super fast tracked project is not only complete, but has been screening pretty consistently for critics, guild members, and the Academy itself. The National Board of Review fell in love with it, and plenty of other voters are about to. We’re a month or so away from release still, but the buzz is building in a big way. Once again, Spielberg has delivered the goods. No one in the industry makes it look as easy as he does. He truly is a master at work. To begin, this is what IMDb regales us with, in terms of plot: “A cover-up that spanned four U.S. Presidents pushed the country’s first female newspaper publisher and a hard-driving editor to join

A cover-up that spanned four U.S. Presidents pushed the country’s first female newspaper publisher and a hard-driving editor to join an unprecedented battle between journalist and government. Inspired by true events.

Prior to a New York Times exposé detailing Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara’s incompetence and mishandling of the Vietnam War, he tells owner of the Washington Post and trusting friend Katharine Graham (the classy and talented Meryl Streep gunning for her 21st Oscar nomination) that she is going to read some unflattering things about him tomorrow in the papers. Now, it’s obviously not a shocking reveal of numerous sexual assault allegations,

‘The Post’ Review: Steven Spielberg’s Spectacularly Entertaining Journalism Thriller Is a Rallying Cry for the Resistance

‘The Post’ Review: Steven Spielberg’s Spectacularly Entertaining Journalism Thriller Is a Rallying Cry for the Resistance
There’s topical, there’s timely, and then there’s “The Post,” which feels less like a historical thriller set in 1971 than it does an exhilarating caricature of the year 2017. While Steven Spielberg’s latest film rivetingly dramatizes the publication of the Pentagon Papers (and eloquently unpacks the consequences of their dissemination), “The Post” wears the Nixon era like a flimsy disguise that it wants you to see right through.

That’s not to take away from Ann Roth’s ratty and exquisite period costume design, or to detract from how immaculately set decorator Rena DeAngelo recreated the smokey thrum of the old Washington Post newsroom. It’s certainly not to diminish Meryl Streep’s fraught and powerfully grounded portrayal of the late publishing scion Katharine Graham — she hasn’t been this good since “Adaptation,” or maybe even “Death Becomes Her,” if ever.

On the contrary, it’s just to

The Post review

Meryl Streep puts in an astounding performance in Steven Spielberg's The Post. Here's our review...

It’s not been uncommon for Steven Spielberg, in his directorial career, to stack projects and get through two or three films in a very contracted amount of time. The man himself admitted that by the time he came to make Saving Private Ryan – immediately following The Lost World: Jurassic Park and Amistad – that he was near-exhausted, and working heavily on instinct. An instinct that would win him a Best Director Oscar. Who knows if history will repeat itself.

After all, instinct is clearly at work in his new film, The Post, too. This is a movie that even in January, Spielberg wasn’t clear he was going to do, let alone this year. Instead, he was making Ready Player One (due in March), and whilst that movie has been in post-production, Spielberg announced,

‘The Post’: Steven Spielberg’s ‘Favorite Cast’ Has Received At Least 58 Emmy Nominations
Sometimes, even Steven Spielberg has trouble assembling his dream cast. But that wasn’t the case with his latest film, the historical drama “The Post.” At a Q&A on Monday night hosted by the Directors Guild of America in Los Angeles, Spielberg told the audience that he’d been able to get every single one of his first choices. No small feat, considering that the turnaround time on the movie clocked in at just nine months, dating from Spielberg’s first acceptance of the script to its first November screenings.

“So often when I make a movie, I have my first choices, and I don’t always get my first choices sometimes due to availability or sometimes actors don’t like the script enough to say yes to me or to anybody,” he said. “But everybody I wanted in the movie, they were available and they all said yes.

‘The Post’: First Reactions Put Steven Spielberg & Meryl Streep In The Oscar Race
