golden globe award nominated

When media starring POC are constantly under-valued and ignored, it’s business as usual.

But the mere thought of a film with an all-white cast losing to a moving staring black people means that it’s a sham?

If your first thought whenever POC are successful is about how undeserved that success or acclaim is - you’re racist and are working to defend and uphold system of racism.

Seriously though, look at how success for POC is automatically coded and interpreted as something being STOLEN from white people.

White entitlement is real, pervasive and covert. 

La la land received 14 Academy Award nominations & broke records for the amount of Golden Globes received by one film. It has already received so much acclaim considering it is has an overwhelmingly white cast in a movie WITH JAZZ as the backdrop - yet that isn’t enough because whiteness cannot possibly allow it to be outshine by Moonlight.

Chris Colfer - Mogul

Reading this response post by Ranwing, really got me thinking about Chris Colfer’s career to date.  This man is only 3 weeks into his 27th year. He’s been professionally active for 9 years, starting when he was just 18.  In that time he has:

Written 13 books, most of which were New York Times best sellers (in no particular order: TLOS 1-6, Trollbella Throws a Party, The Curvy Tree, The Mother Goose Diaries, Red Riding Hood’s Guide to Royalty, TLOS Fairy Tale Treasury, Struck By Lightning, Stranger Than Fanfiction.)

Did the audio book versions of all of the above.

Co-starred in 6 seasons of Glee, in a part that was written for him because he impressed the casting director and creator so much, and for which he won a Golden Globe, several People’s Choice and Teen Choice awards, was nominated for 2 Best Supporting Actor Emmys, and a number of other nominations.

Wrote and starred in “Struck By Lightning”, which he filmed in just three weeks after writing the script on the second of two national/global tours for Glee.

Guested in 2 episodes of “Hot in Cleveland”, an assortment of game shows, variety shows, web series, and movie voiceovers.

Played a small part in “Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie”, which was written to include him because he’d charmed and impressed its star/writer so much.

Chosen to appear in the special production of “8″ with the likes of Martin Sheen, Brad Pitt, Kevin Bacon, and an assortment of other A-List actors.

Hand selected to appear in Robodog and the Noel Coward movie. These sadly went un-filmed due to funding issues, but the honor of being cast in them is still impressive. Ditto with being asked to adapt the children’s book “The Little Leftover Witch” for Disney, which was ultimately shelved due to production of a different ‘witch’ program by the studio.

“Indigo” series currently in development, pending a network or cable distributor, for which Chris will most likely write, direct, and act in at least some of the episodes.

I may have forgotten something here, but this list makes me both proud and tired!  (ETA: Magazine honors such as Time 100 in 2011 and the 30 Under 30 hot list.)

THE ELLEN SHOW: The Final Chapter

A/U: So I just want to say thank you to everyone who’s read this monster. You’ve all been so nice and kind over the past 4-5 months and I cannot tell you how nice it’s been having you get excited or upset about what I’ve written. Having someone telling you how invested they are into something you’ve created is an amazing feeling. I’m bittersweet seeing this coming to an end because I only hope I can make something like this again and have you all support it as much as this. But until that day comes I will give one last thank you and say I love you. 

The Ellen Show Master List

“Welcome back.” A guy with a headset said to me as I was waiting behind the set. He must have recognized me but I didn’t recognize him.

“Oh thank you for having me.” I smiled before pushing my hair back behind my ear shyly. He then processed to quickly give me a run down but we had both done this so many times now it wasn’t really needed anymore.

I heard my name a few seconds after the guy waved for me to start walking. A few moments later Ed Sheeran’s Galway Girl came over the set and I smiled brightly as I came around the corner. Waving to the audience I walked across the flooring before looking up and seeing Ellen standing up waiting for me.

Twenty years ago, filmmaker Kimberly Peirce came to the 1997 Sundance Directors Lab to workshop her film Boys Don’t Cry. The film is based on the real-life story of Brandon Teena—a trans man from the small town of Falls City, Idaho, portrayed by Hilary Swank—who adopts his male persona among an unaware new group of friends. As he tries to find love and acceptance in his newfound social circle, he begins a relationship with Lana Tisdel (played by Chloë Sevigny), who doesn’t know about his gender history. The intense story eventually culminates with the cruel and violent crimes committed against Brandon by two of his acquaintances. 

Director and writer Kimberly Peirce is pictured above at the Directors Lab at the Sundance Mountain Resort in Provo, Utah, working with actress Summer Phoenix (sister of River and Joaquin) as she workshops the script. Boys Don’t Cry was released two years after her time at the Directors Lab. In 2000, Swank took home both an Oscar and a Golden Globe Award for her performance as Brandon, and Sevigny received nominations for both an Oscar and Golden Globe as well.

How Many Times Does Nicole Kidman Have To Prove Herself?
No woman with as much talent as Kidman should be forced to argue, over and over again, that she is a force to be taken seriously.
By Anne Helen Petersen

…the idea that Kidman — who has been nominated for four Academy Awards, eleven Golden Globes, and nine SAG Awards — is still trying to prove her legitimacy as an actress points to a more entrenched (if unsurprising) gulf in the treatment of Hollywood talent. Between male and female actors, of course. But also between women whose fame is perceived as an extension of their proximity to famous men — and their attractiveness to them — and those who are “authentically” talented.

Jude Law has been cast as Albus Dumbledore in the next Fantastic Beasts movie!

Acclaimed actor Jude Law will play Albus Dumbledore in the sequel to Fantastic Beasts.

The second film in the Fantastic Beasts series will show Dumbledore decades before he became Headmaster at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

At this point in the story he is the wizarding school’s Transfiguration professor and a contemporary of Gellert Grindelwald – the Dark wizard we met in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, played by Johnny Depp.

Dumbledore was referenced in the first film, when it was revealed that Newt Scamander was expelled from Hogwarts because of an accident with a magical creature. It was Dumbledore who argued against his expulsion.

In the latest edition of the Hogwarts Library book Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, Newt says in his foreword that, ‘Albus Dumbledore was something more than a schoolteacher to me,’ but to reveal more would breach the Official Magical Secrets Act as well as his former teacher’s confidence.

The stage is set for Dumbledore to make his presence known and returning director David Yates said, ‘Jude Law is a phenomenally talented actor whose work I’ve long admired and I’m looking forward to finally having the opportunity to work with him. I know he will brilliantly capture all the unexpected facets of Albus Dumbledore as J.K. Rowling reveals this very different time in his life.’

Jude Law’s acting career spans TV, film and theatre. He has been nominated for two Academy Awards, three Golden Globes and two BAFTAs – winning a BAFTA for Best Actor in a Supporting Role for the 1999 thriller The Talented Mr Ripley. He has also been nominated for three Olivier Awards and two Tony Awards.

Law first came to prominence in the 1997 film Wilde, where he starred as the poet Lord Alfred Douglas opposite Stephen Fry’s Oscar Wilde.

Law has worked with several Harry Potter actors throughout his career. In Martin Scorsese’s animated feature Hugo, for instance, Law worked alongside Helen McCrory (Narcissa Malfoy), Frances De La Tour (Madame Maxime) and Richard Griffiths (Vernon Dursley). He also appeared in The Grand Budapest Hotel with Ralph Fiennes.

Law has even worked with Johnny Depp – Dumbledore’s Dark wizard adversary Grindelwald. Law, Depp and Fantastic Beasts actor Colin Farrell all played the same character in Terry Gilliam’s The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus.

Law’s most recent work saw a move into TV, and a starring role in the HBO drama The Young Pope.

J.K. Rowling made her screenwriting debut with Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them and has also written the screenplay for the second movie.

The film marked a start of a new era of the wizarding world, set decades before Harry Potter’s adventures at Hogwarts. Its sequel takes the story deeper into an increasingly dark time for the wizarding world, where Newt and our other heroes must decide on their allegiances.

Five films are planned in the franchise, with David Yates returning as director.

The sequel to Fantastic Beasts is slated for release 16 November 2018, and filming begins this summer.

Lea Michele Is Going Places: How Her New Album Defeats All Her Hollywood Doubt
The triple threat reflects on her journey through show business

Today, she’s a 30-year-old two-time Golden Globe nominee who’s graced the screen and stage. But, for Lea Michele, rising to the top in Hollywood wasn’t a seamless harmony.

The Bronx native began her show business career on the East Coast where she made her Broadway debut at 8 years old in Les Misérables and steadily garnered more standout roles, including originating Wendla Bergmann in the 2006 debut of Spring Awakening.

“I loved being on Broadway and that’s what I did my whole life. I was so happy to be on Broadway, but I was always told I wasn’t pretty enough for television or that there wasn’t a space for me there,” she told E! News exclusively.

Despite her doubters, Michele did make it to Tinseltown as Glee’s Rachel Barry, a role that would garner her two Golden Globe nominations and one Emmy Award nomination. After the show’s sixth and final season, a lead role struck again for Michele as she was cast in Fox’s Scream Queens.

“Hollywood was just this glamorous life and I never really thought I would leave New York and now, here I am and I wake up every day and I get to do what I love,” she reflected. “I’m beyond amazed every day.”

In between takes, the triple threat stepped back into the recording studio for her upcoming second studio album, Places, a tribute to both the journey and the destination.

Chris Colfer, Shawn Levy Tackling 'The Land of Stories' Movie for Fox (Exclusive)
Wish come true: Colfer will not only write the script adapting 'The Wishing Spell,' the first book of the best-selling series, but will direct the movie.

Twentieth Century Fox and Shawn Levy’s 21 Laps are teaming up with Chris Colfer to adapt actor-turned-author’s best-selling fantasy series The Land of Stories for the big-screen.

Fox has picked up the rights to the book series with 21 Laps’s Levy and Dan Levine on board to produce.

In a striking move, the 27-year-old Colfer will not only write the script adapting The Wishing Spell, the first book of the multi-million copy-selling series, but will also make his directorial debut by sitting behind the camera.

Launched with Wishing Spell in 2012, when Colfer was in the middle of his six season award-winning turn on Glee, the Land of Stories universe has grown to include novels, illustrated picture books, audiobooks, in-world chapter books, and an upcoming graphic novel. The sixth and final novel in the series, Worlds Collide, will be published July 11, with Colfer embarking on a twenty-city author tour celebrating the series’ finale.  

Wishing Spell follows twins Alex and Conner Bailey who, after the loss of their father, are transported into a magic book in which the classic fairy tales have come to life. Thrust into a world where they come face-to-face with the characters they’ve only read about in stories, the kids must fight dark forces in order to return home.

Colfer and Rob Weisbach will executive produce. Fox’s Kira Goldberg will oversee development for the studio.

21 Laps, which is flying high thanks to the eight Oscar nominations and hit status of its sci-fi drama Arrival, is currently in production on season 2 of their its pop culture-making Netflix series Stranger Things. It is also in post on Fox’s adaptation of the Alexandra Bracken novel The Darkest Minds, and has Jonathan Tropper-penned drama Kodachrome, starring Ed Harris and Jason Sudeikis, in the can.

Colfer first made a name for himself playing Kurt Hummel on the ground-breaking Glee, a role that garnered him a Golden Globe award and multiple People’s Choice Awards and Emmy nominations. It was as the show was ending that his career as an author began taking off, with the Land of Stories books becoming New York Times best-sellers (Wishing Spell was number one for two weeks) and translated into twenty languages.

Colfer has worked as a screenwriter before, penning the 2014 Glee episode Old Dog, New Tricks, and the 2012 original movie Struck by Lightning, in which he also starred. He is repped by ICM Partners, Rob Weisbach Creative Management and Myman Greenspan.
