Motherhood is a common theme for supporting actresses this year, from Emmy winners Laurie Metcalf and Allison Janney parenting lead actress potentials Saoirse Ronan and Margot Robbie in “Lady Bird” and “I, Tonya,” respectively. Then there’s Mary J. Blige’s tough matriarch in “Mudbound,” a commanding performance by the singer. Matriarch Catherine Keener is not to be trusted in “Get Out” while Holly Hunter is loving parent to a sick daughter in “The Big Sick.” And there’s a mother of a different kind with Melissa Leo in “Novitiate,” playing a Mother Reverend grappling with change. Other potential nominees include previous winner Octavia Spencer, standing out in the strong ensemble of “The Shape of Water,” previous nominee Kristen Scott Thomas bringing grace to the wife of Winston Churchill in “Darkest Hour,” and newcomer Hong Chau, stealing scenes as a political activist in “Downsizing.” Buzz is also high on Lesley Manville, though “[link

Luca Guadagnino Champions Suspiria As A Labor Of Love, But It’s Definitely Not A Remake

You’d have to cast your mind back to March of 2017 to remember the moment when Luca Guadagnino announced that filming had wrapped on Suspiria, a modern reinvention of Dario Argento’s Italian slasher. So what gives?

As the horror flick continues to simmer on the brink of release, Guadagnino spoke to Criterion (via Bloody Disgusting) about Suspiria‘s prolonged spell in post, and why he considers it to be a “very special film.” And though it was originally slated to arrive in 2017, judging by this latest status report – one in which the Italian filmmaker reveals that he still has three months to wrap things up – Suspiria may slip into 2018 after all.

I have three months until I finish it. It’s a very special film, and I’m proud of it. I wonder all the time how people will react to it, being that it is based on a masterpiece.

Larry David on 'SNL': 3 Sketches You Have to See
Back when Larry David was a writer for Saturday Night Live, you could charitably describe the relationship between the two entities as oil and water. But over the last few years, that's turned into more of a peanut butter and jelly situation, with David's breakout performance as Bernie Sanders producing a lot of positive buzz for both sides.

While his first time hosting in 2016 produced a solid show, the second time here unfortunately wasn't as strong. The first half-hour was in fact almost shockingly bad, with nothing going the show's

Liam Hemsworth Joins Fiancée Miley Cyrus for Adorable, Surprise 'Saturday Night Live' Cameo

Liam Hemsworth Joins Fiancée Miley Cyrus for Adorable, Surprise 'Saturday Night Live' Cameo
While Larry David hosted Saturday Night Live this weekend, musical guest Miley Cyrus managed to steal the spotlight more than once.

Especially when she got a little help from her fiancé, Liam Hemsworth, in a surprise cameo appearance.

During a sketch called "The Price is Right Celebrity Edition" – which served mostly as an impression showcase for the cast – Miley played a bright-eyed contestant named Amanda who gets paired up with Chris Hemsworth (played by a bearded Alex Moffat with an over-the-top Australian accent).

After the Thor star introduced himself by rambling on about his travels to Australian locations no one's ever heard of, Miley's character looks up at him with a huge smile.

This week’s “SNL” gave us a “The Price Is Right Celebrity Edition” sketch featuring the following contestants: host Larry David as Bernie Sanders, Chris Redd as Lil Wayne, Kate McKinnon as Tilda Swinton and Alex Moffat as Chris Hemsworth, each alongside a studio audience contestant. Of course, they couldn’t have Larry David do Bernie without a dig at the former presidential candidate’s relationship with the Democratic party after running for said party’s nomination in the 2016 election. “It’s good to be here. I just want to say, this show is a travesty. Consumerism disguised as entertainment.

Larry David Hosts SNL: Bernie Sanders Plays Price Is Right, Miley Cyrus Shoots a Rap Video — Watch Highlights
As to be expected, Saturday Night Live with returning host Larry David was pretty, pretty, pretty good.

The Curb Your Enthusiasm star wasted no time bringing his brand of cringe comedy to Studio 8H. His opening monologue not only touched upon the Harvey Weinstein scandal, but what he called an alarming pattern among other serial sexual harassers who have since been exposed — many of whom, he said, happen to be Jewish. What followed was David contemplating his role as a “good Jewish representative,” before ultimately striking a nerve with his joke about there being “no good opening lines in a

7 Essential Debut Films Directed By Female Filmmakers, From ‘Ratcatcher’ to ‘The Virgin Suicides’
When Greta Gerwig’s already-lauded “Lady Bird” hits limited release later this week, the actress-writer-director will join a long line of other female filmmakers who used their directorial debut (this one is Gerwig’s solo directorial debut, just for clarity’s sake) to not only launch their careers, but make a huge mark while doing it. Gerwig’s Saoirse Ronan-starring coming-of-age tale is an instant classic, and one that shouldn’t come as much of a surprise to anyone who has enjoyed Gerwig’s charming work as a screenwriter in recent years, bolstered by her ear for dialogue and her love of complicated and complex leading ladies.

While Hollywood still lags when it comes to offering up opportunities to its most talented female filmmakers, many of them have overcome the dismal stats to deliver compelling, interesting, and unique first features. In short, they’re good filmmakers who made good movies,

The 7 Best Movies Coming to Netflix in November 2017
It’s a good thing that Netflix already has the “Gilmore Girls” for all of those sweet Thanksgiving vibes, because the streaming giant is coming down from that Halloween sugar high in a bad way and following last month’s blockbuster slate with a relatively unremarkable roster of new additions. Proving that there isn’t much rhyme or reason behind when they’re able to upload new movies (it’s hard to curate around contract rights), the platform’s latest batch of titles is heavy on horror movies and light on seasonal fare.

Still, it’s not all bad news for those of you who might be looking for something to stream while you’re home for the holidays. Comfort watches like “Casper” and “Field of Dreams” are perfect things to put on when you’re immobilized by a stomach full of turkey, and you can even go for an

Tessa Thompson on Revolutionizing the Marvel Universe and Her Dream 'Thor: Ragnarok' Spinoff (Exclusive)

Tessa Thompson doesn't yet know she is the standout star of Thor: Ragnarok. In Marvel's latest release, Thompson plays Valkyrie, a disillusioned Asgardian warrior-turned-galactic bounty hunter who bands together with the God of Thunder to save the universe. Think of her as the Han Solo of the McU: a prickly antihero, a swaggering space bandit with a tragic backstory and penchant for quippy one-liners and booze. And though the actress has been consistently singled out by critics -- "The Marvel universe needs to see more of her. She's a star," one review declares, while others call her "wonderfully rambunctious" and "so damn cool" -- on the red carpet at the Ragnarok premiere, Thompson hasn't yet actually seen the movie.

"I wanted to wait and see it with them first," Thompson tells Et, referring to her plus-eight for the evening: Her dad and mom, her two sisters, her younger brother and her three best friends. (Many of whom had

Tilda Swinton says Luca Guadagnino’s Suspiria is “another version, not a remake”

Filmmaker Luca Guadagnino is currently in post production on his newest film Suspiria, a remake of Dario Argento’s classic 1977 horror – although according to star Tilda Swinton, it’s not so much a “remake” as “another version”.

“It’s another version, not a remake,” Swinton told Allocine (via The Playlist). “It’s important to say it because we are ardent admirers of the film of Dario Argento, and it is impossible to [remake] this film. I accepted [it] because it will be a completely different movie! It’s inspired by the same story, but it goes in different directions. It’s semantics, of course, but I think people really have to understand that this is not a remake, because the word ‘remake’ gives the impression that we want to erase the original, and the opposite is what [we’re trying to do]. It’s going to sound a bit grandiloquent, but it’s like when Francis Bacon

Cannes Director Thierry Fremaux On Harvey Weinstein Scandal: ‘It’s Not a Problem For the Film Community, It’s a Problem For the World’

Cannes Director Thierry Fremaux On Harvey Weinstein Scandal: ‘It’s Not a Problem For the Film Community, It’s a Problem For the World’
Revelations about Harvey Weinstein’s history of sexual assault jolted the film industry around the world. Yet even as victims continue to speak out, much of the community has been stunned into another silence.

Generations of former Weinstein employees, including those who toiled on his staff during the seminal Miramax days, refuse to speak publicly for fear that the association could make them complicit. Others who collaborated with Weinstein — an expansive Venn diagram of publicists, sales agents, programmers, and their institutions — remain wary of saying anything that could somehow drag them further into his orbit.

The Cannes Film Festival, where Weinstein was the steward for Palme d’Or winners “sex, lies and videotape” and “Pulp Fiction,” is no exception. Taking precedence over any other conversation, the world’s most revered gathering of international cineastes prefer to fixate on the art form. Cannes didn’t create Weinstein, but it was the
