Sundance Film Festival: ‘I Think We’re Alone Now’

Sundance Film Festival: ‘I Think We’re Alone Now’
“I Think We’re Alone Now,” Reed Morano’s handsome, heavily-underlined treatise on solitude, opens on a post-apocalyptic town near the Hudson River. Tattered flags, that favorite symbol of failed Americana, droop on the empty Main St. of this new ghost town. And here comes its sheriff, an ex-librarian named Del (Peter Dinklage, straight-shouldered and stable) who is the sole survivor of the sudden something-or-other that wiped out the 1,600 people in his hamlet, and presumably, everyone else in the world. Enter teenage-ish Grace (Elle Fanning) with a car full of M-80s and a handgun in the backseat to detonate Del’s civilized society-of-one — though the fireworks she lights on her first night set a high bar for beauty and emotional impact that the film never manages to top.

Del is fine on his own. He felt more alone before his neighbors died off: a small, serious man surrounded by 1,599 other residents who treated him like a

Sterling K. Brown completes awards sweep for ‘This Is Us,’ becomes first black actor to win SAG category

Sterling K. Brown completes awards sweep for ‘This Is Us,’ becomes first black actor to win SAG category
Sterling K. Brown completed his awards sweep for NBC’s “This Is Us” on Sunday, winning the Screen Actors Guild Award following his recent victories at the Critics’ Choice, Golden Globes and Emmys. In addition, Brown made history as the first black actor to ever prevail in his dramatic SAG category. His fellow nominees were David Harbour (“Stranger Things”), Peter Dinklage (“Game of Thrones”), Jason Bateman (“Ozark”) and Bob Odenkirk (“Better CAll Saul”).

Since the creation of the SAG Awards in 1995, only white men had been named the winner of this race that combines both lead and supporting performances from TV dramas. The four non-white actors previously nominated here were Brown, Hector Elizondo (“Chicago Hope”), Jimmy Smits (“NYPD Blue”) and Rami Malek (“Mr. Robot”).

SAG Awards 2018 Review: Kristen Bell Puts Sincerity Over Self in a Show That Still Needed More Surprises

SAG Awards 2018 Review: Kristen Bell Puts Sincerity Over Self in a Show That Still Needed More Surprises
After last year’s excellent show, it’s hard to say the SAG Awards needed a host in 2018. But no one protested when the guild announced its inaugural honor would go to Kristen Bell — and they still shouldn’t. Bell kept with the pre-existing tone that sets the SAGs apart: Quick, quippy, and with an emphasis on unabashed love for acting, her opening monologue felt like it wasn’t trying to change things; it was trying to fit in, and it worked.

In a reversal of last year’s emphasis on humor, then heart, this year’s ceremony focused on female actors talking about what they dreamed of being when they were little and what they’ve achieved since then. Allison Janney dreamed of being a figure skater. Tracee Ellis Ross wanted to own a lot of shoes. Millie Bobby Brown, still a young girl, told other adolescents watching, “I believe in you.

Olivia Munn and Niecy Nash Are the Unexpected Duo We Deserved at the SAG Awards

Olivia Munn and Niecy Nash Are the Unexpected Duo We Deserved at the SAG Awards
Olivia Munn and Niecy Nash were excited to present the best male actors in a drama series at the SAG Awards this year, but they definitely got their shows mixed up. The actresses started out on the right track by giving a shout-out to Sterling K. Brown for his performance in This Is Us, but then they gave praise to David Harbour for his performance in Stranger Things and "falling in love with the fish." (Guys, that's The Shape of Water!) Things really took a confusing turn when Olivia and Niecy incorrectly referred to Peter Dinklage as one of the dragons on Game of Thrones. Ha! RelatedHere Are This Year's SAG Awards Winners!

Sterling K. Brown Wins SAG Award For Best Actor in a TV Drama Series
It’s three in a row for “This Is Us” star Sterling K. Brown, who just won his first-ever SAG Award, on top of his recent Emmy and Golden Globe wins.

Brown took the honor for outstanding Male Actor in a Drama Series, thanks to his role as Randall Pearson on NBC’s hit drama “This Is Us.” Brown bested a field that included Jason Bateman (“Ozark”), Peter Dinklage (“Game of Thrones”), David Harbour (“Stranger Things”) and Bob Odenkirk (“Better Call Saul”). John Lithgow won the award last year for “The Crown.”

In 2017, Brown was nominated twice, both for male actor in a drama (for the first season of “This Is Us”) and male actor in a TV movie or limited series (for “The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story”), but didn’t win.

“It’s time,” the actor said during a visit to Variety’s studio in Park City. “Story-wise, not just for all our lives. It’s the perfect time to end it. Sometimes shows stay on a little too long, the jumping-the-shark thing.”
