Hidden Figures Cast wins the Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture

Taraji P. Henson: Talk to me, God. Listen. This film is about unity. We stand here as proud actors thanking every member of this incredible guild for voting for us, for recognizing our hard work. But the shoulders of the women we stand on are three American heroes: Katherine Johnson, Dorothy Vaughan, Mary Jackson. Without them, we would not know how to reach the stars. These women did not complain about the problems, their circumstances, you know, the issues. We know what was going on in that era. They didn’t complain. They focused on solutions. Therefore, these brave women helped put men into space. We cannot forget the brave men that also worked with us. God rest his soul in peace, John Glenn. This story is of unity. This story is about what happens when we put our differences aside and we come together as a human race. We win. Love wins every time. Thank you so much for appreciating the work we’ve done. Thank you so much for appreciating these women — they are hidden figures no more. Thank you.

Was it a risk to cast someone so well known, and yet such an unknown quantity? ‘It didn’t feel risky at all,’ says Emma, 'because he auditioned the same way everyone else did. Over the course of days of coming back to audition, giving it his best, Harry was absolutely right for the part, and it didn’t feel any more a risk casting him than it did casting anyone else.’ Emma appreciates that his fame might get in the way for some: 'there’s always the risk that people can’t get past the persona, but the truth is he’s a great actor. I think when you watch him in the movie he utterly sucks you in. He’s not Harry Styles any more, in the same way that Fionn isn’t Fionn Whitehead any more - he’s Tommy.’

Hidden Figures (2016)

Directed by Theodore Melfi

Cinematography by Mandy Walker

  • what they say: I'm fine
  • what they mean: Why is there so little Vampire Chronicles fan activity or content? Where is the fanbase? I understand that it's older but the appeal is still massive. This is something that you can like for years and years and not get over. Why is it there aren't hoards of new fans every year? What can you want more than beautiful bisexual vampires? I mean Anne Rice practically invented the modern vampire genre. There's dozens of shows and book series that owe their creative careers to her. She is one of the bestselling writers of all time!!! The fact that there isn't a bigger active fanbase especially since Prince Lestat's release kind of blows my mind. I mean there was even a blockbuster motion picture with an allstar cast. How are there not more new young fans? How do we get more? Like I know so many people who have seen and enjoyed the movie but where is the huge cult following behind the film and the books?

Sun Ra (1914–1993)

SEPTEMBER 25: Clea DuVall (1977-)

Happy 40th birthday, Clea DuVall! The lesbian actress, writer, and director who had starring turns in films such as Girl, Interrupted and But I’m A Cheerleader was born on this day in 1977.

Some of Clea’s most recent noteworthy roles were in the popular television series American Horror Story: Asylum and Veep (x).

Clea Helen D'Etienne DuVall was born on September 25, 1977 in Los Angeles, California. She was an only child and was born to an actor father, which exposed her to the world of the entertainment industry at a young age. Clea made her acting debut in 1996 in the indie movie Little Witches, which was followed by several small roles in series such as ER and Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Her breakout role came in 2003 when she cast as the character Sofie in Carnivàle. Her father, Stephen Duvall, even costarred alongside her in two Carnivàle episodes before the series’ end in 2005.

Her other hit projects include films such as Passengers, Zodaic, Helter Skelter, and The Grudge. Clea, along with the rest of her cast mates, was awarded the Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture in 2012 for the film Argo. Although she became a lesbian cultural icon after starring in the 1999 film But I’m A Cheerleader, it was only a few years ago that she began speaking publicly about her own lesbian identity. She made her directorial debut just last year with The Intervention, which features she and her old But I’m A Cheerleader costar Natasha Lyonne reprising their roles as a lesbian couple. In an interview with The Advocate, Clea said that she feels she is finally getting the opportunities to play “the gay that I feel like I am.”
