Mary J. Blige Joins Illustrious Group of Golden Globes Double Music-Acting Nominees

Mary J. Blige Joins Illustrious Group of Golden Globes Double Music-Acting Nominees
Perhaps the most surprising double-nomination for this year’s Golden Globes: the twin nods given to Mary J. Blige for best supporting actress and best song — for the film “Mudbound” and its song “Mighty River.” With those, Blige becomes the first performer to be simultaneously nominated in song and acting since John C. Reilly got dual nods for “Walk Hard” 10 years ago. Barbra Streisand, Bjork, Beyonce and Dolly Parton are the other female singer/actors who have scored nominations in both categories in the past, while Reilly and Neil Diamond are the male dual nominees. Only Streisand has won both (for the 1976 film “A Star Is Born”).

Few other surprises popped up in the Globes’ music categories. Other best song contenders include “Remember Me” from “Coco” and “This is Me” from “The Greatest Showman,” both of which are frequently cited as among the frontrunners in the Oscars’ best song contest.

Two songs sung

Lindsay Lohan ‘Feels Bad’ For Harvey Weinstein and Wants Everyone to ‘Stand Up’ For Him

Lindsay Lohan ‘Feels Bad’ For Harvey Weinstein and Wants Everyone to ‘Stand Up’ For Him
Many actors have spoken out against Harvey Weinstein since the publication of articles from The New York Times and The New Yorker that revealed decades of alleged sexual harassment, including rape, but Lindsay Lohan is not one of those celebrities. While Kate Winslet, Jennifer Lawrence, George Clooney, and more have condemned the former head of The Weinstein Company, Lohan has come to his defense in a now-deleted Instagram video in which she urges people to “stand up” for Weinstein.

“Hi, this is Lindsay Lohan. Hi. I’m in Dubai. I’m home and I feel very bad for Harvey Weinstein right now,” Lohan said. “I don’t think it’s right what’s going on. I think Georgina [Chapman] needs to take a stand and be there for her husband. He’s never harmed me or did anything to me.

Lindsay Lohan Comes to Harvey Weinstein’s Defense, ‘I Feel Very Bad For Him Right Now’

Lindsay Lohan Comes to Harvey Weinstein’s Defense, ‘I Feel Very Bad For Him Right Now’
Harvey Weinstein seems to have at least one defender.

Lindsay Lohan shared a Instagram story video saying she supported Weinstein after several women made allegations of sexual misconduct against him in stories published in the New York Times and The New Yorker.

While she deleted the video less than an hour after posting it in the early hours of Wednesday morning local time in the UAE time – where she is currently located – social media users were quick to record and share.

“Hi, this is Lindsay Lohan, I’m in Dubai. I’m home,” she said in her now more European accent.

Fall Movie Preview: A Guide to Totally Early Oscar 2018 Predictions

Fall Movie Preview: A Guide to Totally Early Oscar 2018 Predictions
An Oscar movie could hit theaters at any time during the year -- as far as the rules are concerned, it only needs to be released between Jan. 1 and Dec. 31 to be eligible -- but everyone knows that all of the true contenders arrive in the last quarter of the year.

I suppose some Academy-worthy movies have already been released: Dunkirk, right? The Big Sick and Get Out less likely, but perhaps! I guess some people believe Wonder Woman could really get a Best Picture nomination.... So, instead of considering this our first round of Oscar predictions, think of it as a Ones to Watch list to prepare you as studios start showing off their films that could earn noms at next year's Academy Awards. (Which are still five months away, Fyi, on March 4, 2018.)

‘Twin Peaks’: Time Loops and Soup Offer Clues to the Town’s Dysfunction and Imminent Danger

‘Twin Peaks’: Time Loops and Soup Offer Clues to the Town’s Dysfunction and Imminent Danger
[Editor’s Note: The following review contains spoilers for “Twin Peaks: The Return,” Season 3, “Part 13” (Episode 13).]

History repeating itself on “Twin Peaks” has so far fallen into the category of not learning from or not being able to move on from past mistakes. Shelly (Madchen Amick) married an abusive man when she was too young and is now romantically involved with Red (Balthazar Getty), a man who’s been shown to have violent tendencies. Her daughter Becky (Amanda Seyfried) also married an abusive man.

In this past Sunday’s episode, Ed Hurley (Everett McGill) reveals through a heartbreaking look that he’s still in love with Norma (Peggy Lipton), while she’s involved with someone else. Even Ed’s nephew James (James Marshall) gives viewers major deja vu with his rendition of “Just You,” a song he had crooned in Season 2 of the original series with two dark-haired ladies backing him up.

How ‘Speechless,’ ‘Atlantic Avenue,’ ‘Krystal’ Showcase the Underserved
For all the noise Hollywood has made these past few years over the issue of racial diversity and gender equality in film and TV, one segment of society remains drastically underserved — the disabled. Strides have been made — Becky (Lauren Potter) on “Glee” had Down syndrome; ABC series “Speechless” centers on Jj, a teenage boy with cerebral palsy played by Micah Fowler, who has the disorder in real life — but those examples are few and far between. For the most part, there are no disabled characters on the big and small screens, and if there are, they are not played by actors with disabilities. Financial constraints and budgetary concerns are often cited as the reason studios don’t do a better job of hiring disabled actors. Even more disheartening is that if there is a story focusing on a character with a disability, his entire life story revolves around the fact that he is disabled. Case

‘Dark Tower’ Director Nikolaj Arcel Joins Matt Damon’s Robert F. Kennedy Movie

‘Dark Tower’ Director Nikolaj Arcel Joins Matt Damon’s Robert F. Kennedy Movie
Matt Damon’s Robert F. Kennedy biopic “Rfk” has picked up momentum as “The Dark Tower” director Nikolaj Arcel has signed on to direct Damon in the Warner Bros. project.

Arcel will direct from a script he co-wrote with Rasmus Heisterberg and Felipe Marino. Damon will produce with Jennifer Todd and Drew Vinton. Production is expected to start next year.

Kennedy ran the successful 1960 presidential campaign for his brother, John F. Kennedy, and served as U.S. Attorney General and top adviser to his brother between 1961 and 1963. He remained in the post for President Lyndon B. Johnson for several months after his brother’s assassination, then resigned to run for the U.S. Senate, representing New York.

Kennedy served until his assassination in June, 1968, while seeking the Democratic presidential nomination on a platform of ending U.S. involvement in the Vietnam War.

The last day of Kennedy’s life was recapped in the 2006 film “Bobby,” directed

Newswire: The Dark Tower’s Nikolaj Arcel to direct Matt Damon’s Robert Kennedy movie

Director Nikolaj Arcel’s The Dark Tower is about a legendary hero on a nearly impossible quest to save all of reality from an evil wizard, but it looks like Arcel’s next film will be slightly less fantastical. According to The Hollywood Reporter, he’ll be directing Matt Damon in Rfk, a long-in-the-works biopic about Robert F. Kennedy. Damon is set to play the former presidential candidate, who was assassinated by Sirhan Sirhan in 1968, with Arcel writing the script.

No other actors are attached to Rfk yet, but hopefully the movie doesn’t spend too much time putting together a big-name cast at the expense of virtually everything else in the production, which is the pit that Emilio Estevez’s Bobby fell into way back in 2006. Or maybe Arcel should just get the same cast (including Martin Sheen, Shia Labeouf, Lindsay Lohan, Anthony Hopkins, and Demi Moore ...

Shia Labeouf apologises for racist tirade
Actor caught on camera insulting black police officer.

Troubled actor Shia Labeouf took to social media on Wednesday to apologise for a racist outburst recorded on police video.

Labeouf was caught on camera insulting a black police offer following his arrest in Savannah, Georgia, on Saturday on suspicion of obstruction, disorderly conduct and public drunkenness after he allegedly asked a passer-by for a cigarette.

Labeouf is heard in the video saying to the black officer: “You’re going to hell, straight to hell, bro.” When the officer’s white colleague asked Labeouf how he could make that statement based on the man’s colour, the actor replied, “It means a whole lot, bro.”

Moments later the actor, who was in the process of being fingerprinted by the officers, claimed he had been arrested because he was white.

Labeouf, who earned strong reviews in Andrea Arnold’s Cannes 2016 selection American Honey and stars as tennis legend John McEnroe in the

‘Twin Peaks’ Part 9 Theories: A Telling Time, Secret Texts, and When Audrey Horne Will Finally Return
[Editor’s Note: The following contains spoilers from “Twin Peaks” Episode 9, “Part 9.”]

As “Twin Peaks” reached its halfway mark, David Lynch dumped a lot of information in Sunday’s episode that connected the dots but didn’t give everything away. But it does look like everyone is going to journey to the Black Lodge, which means another batshit crazy episode could be in the offing.

Without further ado, let’s dive into the episode:

The Time 2:53

We first heard about “253” when Special Agent Cooper met the Evolution of the Arm, who told him, “253. Time and time again.” Later, that number comes up as a time, when Cooper gets sucked from the Purple Room to the electrical socket and into Dougie’s life. Simultaneously, Dougie gets whisked to the Black Lodge, and Evil Cooper wrecks his car and starts puking bloody garmonbozia.
