Katy Perry's 'Chained To The Rhythm' Video Has Major '1984' Vibes
Date: Tue, 21 Feb 2017 13:20:23 -0500
From huffingtonpost.com





Katy Perry's video for "Chained To The Rhythm" is here and it's a pastel-hued dystopia.


In the four-minute video, Perry portrays a woman named Rose who journeys through the brightly colored Oblivia, a theme park with a spacey 1950s vibe where the smiling visitors are glued to their tablets as they ride the Great American Dream Drop. Alas, the roses have thorns and validation doesn't come easily for everyone. Luckily, Skip Marley is there to enlighten those willing to listen.






The video, directed by Matthew Cullen, was filmed at California's Six Flags Magic Mountain last month, according to Billboard.


It comes weeks after the single's release, complete with lyrics like "So put your rose-colored glasses on / And party on / Turn it up, it's your favorite song / Dance, dance, dance to the distortion / Come on, turn it up, keep it on repeat / Stumbling around like a wasted zombie."


View the whole video here:





After Hillary Clinton's loss in the 2016 presidential election, Perry wrote about how campaigning on Clinton's behalf and then facing a stark new reality helped her find her voice.



From the outside it probably looks as though I've always had a "voice." Truth is, I have never had one like I have found in the past year. I have a found a new voice, a more determined voice. I grew up sheltered, suppressed and kept silent for fear of giving the wrong answer. I would reveal my poor education. Or I was just scared. Hillary helped me see that we're all in this together, no matter where we come from, what color we are, or what status and education we have or don't have. Hillary lit a fire inside of me that burns brighter and brighter every day, and that fire will NEVER be put out. Feelings of despair still comes in waves, but now more than ever I am MOTIVATED to fight against social injustice and to promote equality and kindness as best I know how, through my art and influence.




Slowly, I am coming down from the beautiful cloud that was Tuesday night's @UNICEF Snowflake Ball. First and foremost, I am incredibly grateful to have received the Audrey Hepburn Humanitarian Award from my hero @HillaryClinton. This award will be a constant reminder to get out of my bubble and back into the field to shine a light on issues that matter most, especially to illuminate the plight of vulnerable children who are living without basic human needs and rights. This honor is a starting line, not a finish line, for me, and I am excited for where my new ambition and purpose leads me! I was profoundly moved and thoroughly surprised when Hillary showed up to give me this award. I broke down and wept watching her take the stage. The last time I was in NYC was for Election Night. I left covered in a blanket of sadness and despair because for me, and I imagine others, the results triggered a lot of dormant fears and emotions to the surface. I feared that we were not ever going to see the light of justice or fairness. I felt vulnerable, confused and frightened like a child. From the outside it probably looks as though I've always had a "voice." Truth is, I have never had one like I have found in the past year. I have a found a new voice, a more determined voice. I grew up sheltered, suppressed and kept silent for fear of giving the wrong answer. I would reveal my poor education. Or I was just scared.

Feelings of despair still comes in waves, but now more than ever I am MOTIVATED to fight against social injustice and to promote equality and kindness as best I know how, through my art and influence. I am continually inspired by her strength and how she continues to rise like the Phoenix she is, every time. It's funny, sometimes people who disagree with me just say, "Shut up and sing." Boy, will I do so in a whole new way... next year. Hell hath no fury like a woman REBORN.

Janelle MonA!e Honors 'Hidden Figure' And Naval Engineer Raye Montague
Date: Tue, 21 Feb 2017 12:49:26 -0500
From huffingtonpost.com



Janelle Monae has just highlighted another "hidden figure" who should be celebrated.


The actress, who portrays NASA engineer Mary Jackson in the Oscar-nominated film "Hidden Figures," made a surprise appearance on Good Morning America to help honor engineer Raye Montague, who revolutionized the way the U.S. Navy designs ships.


Montague broke barriers when she became the first female program manager of ships in the history of Navy, "which was the equivalent of being a CEO of a company," she said.


She started her career in the Navy in 1956 in Washington, D.C. as a clerk typist, according to the Encyclopedia of Arkansa History and Culture. She told GMA that she rose in the ranks and spent 33 years as a civilian employee. She was unable to earn an engineering degree in college, so she said she learned engineering skills on the job and attended computer programming school at night.


In 1970, her bosses told her department that they had one month to design a naval ship. Montague finished the task in less than 19 hours.


Montague said she wasn't the first black person or the first woman, but the first person ever to design a ship using a computer. She was awarded the U.S. Navy's Meritorious Civilian Service Award, the navy's third-highest honorary award, in 1972.


The 82-year-old told host Robin Roberts that she faced a lot of the challenges that the women depicted in "Hidden Figures" went through. Roberts then brought Monae out to surprise Montague.


The artist/actress brought Montague flowers and thanked her for her work.


"You are an American hero and you are hidden no more. Everybody sees you," Monae said.


Octavia Spencer, who portrays Dorothy Vaughn in the film, also thanked Montague via video message.


"It is such an honor and a privilege to thank you for being a pioneer and trailblazer for women across the world. I want to let you know that you are no longer hidden. We see you, we salute you and we thank you."


Watch Montague's full interview in the video above.

The 21-year-old model, who is in town for London Fashion Week, wore an oversize knit sweater over a cream dress, paired with black boots and bright red lips. But the most contentious part of her outfit was the two gold teeth she added to her look:

Jordan Peele's Barack Obama Impression Is Now Drunk And Angry At Donald Trump
Date: Tue, 21 Feb 2017 12:21:18 -0500
From huffingtonpost.com





Throughout the years Barack Obama was in power, Jordan Peele's impression of the president emerged as the most recognizable, only rivaled by Jay Pharoah's take on "Saturday Night Live."


During the comedian's appearance on Seth Meyer's "Late Night" Monday to promote his well-reviewed new film "Get Out," the host told Peele he thought the Obama impression "was the gold standard."


Peele's take on the president from his Comedy Central show, "Key & Peele," would portray Obama as extremely even-keeled and calm. During these sketches his comedic partner, Keegan-Michael Key, would play an "anger translator," expressing the frustration Obama presumably decided he couldn't.


The popularity of the recurring impressions became so popular that the real Obama invited Key to be his anger translator for part of his speech at the 2015 White House Correspondents' Dinner.


With this context, Meyers asked Peele to revive his impression and asked what Obama is thinking about the United States at the moment. Although he didn't outright mention his name, Meyers heavily implied he wanted Peele's Obama to respond to the fact that Donald Trump now runs the country.


At least according to this new impression, Obama no longer needs an anger translator a the post-Trump Obama is willing to get mad all by himself.


Peele set up his take with a mention that Obama has been on vacation and a guess that the former president is now holding a glass of whiskey in his hands while watching TV.


"This is some messed up stuff here," Peele's drunk Obama yelled out in response to watching news on TV. Then while swirling the imaginary whiskey glass, Peele slurred in his Obama-voice, "Michelle, top her off. Michelle, top her off."


Peele-as-Obama reacted again to the TV and said with clear frustration, "Well, you done done did it now, America!"


Before wrapping up the take, Peele referenced Trump's past insistence that Obama was not born in the United States. In the impression, Peele's Obama repeatedly asks Michelle where he is from, before stating himself that the answer is Hawaii.


His last line as Obama? "Well, mele kalikimaka mother f--," making sure to stop himself short.

There May Be A 'Harry Potter' Reference In Emma Watson's 'Beauty And The Beast' Song
Date: Tue, 21 Feb 2017 11:55:39 -0500
From huffingtonpost.com



Let's get one thing straight: Belle's a weirdo.


Who needs books when you got looks, amiright? The townspeople get it.


Despite her character's unconventional behavior, there is something enchanting about actress Emma Watson singing, "Belle," the opening song to "Beauty and the Beast," or, as you might say during trivia, "That One Bonjour Song." Perhaps the most enchanting thing is a possible nod to Watson's "Harry Potter" role.


In the original song for Disney's animated "Beauty and the Beast," Belle has a chat with the baker who dismisses her, saying, "That's nice. Marie! The baguettes!"


(LOL, Marie. Who could forget the baguettes?)


But the new version has a noticeable change ...





"Good morning, Monsieur Jean. Have you lost something again?" asks Watson's character.


"I believe I have. Problem is, I can't remember what," says Monsieur Jean.





Uh, what? Who the heck is Monsieur Jean? Where's the line about the baguettes? Marie! The baguettes!


Tale as old as time? This is more like a tale as old as crime!


Until you remember "Harry Potter" ...





In "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone," there's a scene where Neville gets a Remembrall. Watson's character, Hermione, explains what that means, saying, "I've read about those. When the smoke turns red, it means you've forgotten something."


Neville replies, "The only problem is, I can't remember what I've forgotten."





Whaaaaaaaaat????


Sound familiar?


We think so. Some on Reddit agree.




Of course, it could just be a coincidence.


Sure. It's coincidence that one of the few released scenes from "Beauty and the Beast," Disney's big-budget live-action remake of the timeless classic, has a change that reflects a moment from Watson's most famous role.





This is the opening song. If Hermione Granger sorted out her priorities, "Belle" would likely be the top one.


What's more, as my copy editor Jill points out, the word for magic wand in French is "baguette magique." You know, like the baguette line that got replaced? Jill calls it a "cute coincidence." I call it conspiracy!


Whether the "Harry Potter" reference is intentional or not, we're not complaining.


In the words of the great Albus Dumbledore: Ten points to Gryffindor!





"Beauty and the Beast" hits theaters March 17.

How Movies Teach Us About Purpose
Date: Tue, 21 Feb 2017 10:23:18 -0500
From huffingtonpost.com

PwC's famous Oscars(r) "Ballot Briefcase" is making a whirlwind, eleven-city tour across the U.S. en route to the Academy Awards in Hollywood, California on Sunday, February 26. Moviegoers this year had the opportunity to travel--vicariously--even farther than that. Thanks to the magic of filmmaking, we visited nearly every continent. We felt the water and tasted the food through provocative imagery, but even more real was the humanity that we experienced - empathic, inspiring, and caustic. That powerful element of humanity has the extraordinary ability to draw us in as if we're actually experiencing every interaction, emotion and triumph.


Normally, I tend to gravitate toward films purely for entertainment sake. This year, however, I was drawn into films not simply by a compelling screenplay or gifted actor, but by unyielding social issues and themes. From the disruptive power of technology, to the importance of embracing diversity in the workplace, to the brutal consequences of incarceration without rehabilitation, to the fragility of our ecosystems - these are the stories that desperately need the visibility of the lights and cameras to compel action.


Movies transport us from our daily lives into unfamiliar worlds, encounters or paradigms completely foreign to us. For a few intense hours, we find ourselves immersed in surreal situations, obstacles, and controversies--the human experience in all of its many dimensions--confronting someone else's reality, broadening our perspectives, and moving us to engage simply by being an observer. Films help expand our thinking not only about the complex world around us, but about our own role, and our own place in this world.


About purpose.


It is easy to get caught up in the routine transactions of our day-to-day existence - to lose the meaning of the 24 hours in each day. But movies have the ability to inspire, galvanize and reconnect us all to what really matters. During the last 83 years that PwC has been responsible for tabulating the Oscar(r) ballots, the world and the challenges we face have changed dramatically. The way we do just about everything, including making movies, will continue to evolve. But, if there is one thing that the movies have shown us over the years, it's that the need and the drive to highlight our humanity, foster empathy, and respond to the world around us in creative and strategic ways will endure.


So once again we're moving beyond counting the ballots and taking a moment during Hollywood's most exciting night of the year to speak with the real winners - people who have the ability to link to a larger sense of humanity and bring purpose into their personal and professional lives. This year PwC is walking a red carpet of its own with Julia Ormond, Actress, Founder of ASSET, and the First UN Goodwill Ambassador to combat Trafficking and Slavery; Brandon Victor Dixon, Tony and Grammy Award(r) Nominee and lead in Hamilton; Mike Adams of the Indianapolis Colts and founder of The Team Adams Foundation; David Heath, Co-Founder and CEO of Bombas, the give-back sock company; and Cisco Pinedo, the founder & CEO of Cisco Home, and co-founder of the non-profit Refoundry, which trains formerly incarcerated people to repurpose discarded materials into home furnishings, and helps them launch their own businesses.


For me, the Oscars is about more than recognizing the best in the movie industry; it's about bringing new awareness, new thinking, and a more expansive sense of human connection to light. It's the work of acting on our insights, and with our unique assets and resources, to help solve important problems.

Follow #PwCRedCarpet and check back here for PwC's Purpose Red Carpet live stream on February 26th from 4:00--4:30 pm PT/7:00--7:30 ET.

Donald Trump Begs The Media For 'Mercy' In This Shawn Mendes Mashup
Date: Tue, 21 Feb 2017 09:48:03 -0500
From huffingtonpost.com



President Donald Trump just wants some "Mercy" from the media.


POTUS appears to ask the press, who last week he dubbed "an enemy of the American people," to lay off him in this mashup of Shawn Mendes' hit ballad.


YouTube channel TrumpSings cut footage of Trump's speeches with an instrumental version of the Canadian singer's track.


The parody video kicks off with Trump blasting the media for trying to "attack our administration because they're not happy for whatever reason."


"Please have mercy on me, take it easy on my heart," he then sings. "Even though you don't mean to hurt me, you keep tearing me apart."





Check out the mashup above, and the original song below:

Watch Angelina Jolie Cook Up Scorpions And Spiders For Her Kids
Date: Tue, 21 Feb 2017 09:45:50 -0500
From huffingtonpost.com





Have a hard enough time getting your kids to eat their peas? Angelina Jolie has her brood chowing down on scorpions and tarantulas.


In a BBC clip posted Sunday, the actress cooked the creepy-crawlies with her children in Cambodia, then dug in with them.


We'll savor these home-movie moments forever when Jolie says, "Who wants to share a spider?" and "It's hard to chew the scorpions" as though she were at a backyard barbecue on the Fourth of July.






Those wanting to follow the "Maleficent" star's lead on insect cuisine might want to heed her advice in the video:


"You start with crickets, crickets and a beer. And then you kind of move up to tarantulas."


In the same interview with the BBC's Yalda Hakim, Jolie commented on her divorce from Brad Pitt, calling it "a difficult time." At least it's comforting to see the kids enjoying an exotic meal together.


Now who wants to call out for a pizza instead?

What Does It Really Mean To Win Best Picture?
Date: Tue, 21 Feb 2017 09:41:38 -0500
From huffingtonpost.com

Sunday's Oscars loom in the shadow of Donald Trump's fledgling presidency. As with every awards show this year, we can expect copious equal-rights diatribes mounted in resistance to the regressive legislation and callow disregard for tradition that has defined the Trump administration's debut.


But before arriving at the annual ritual, we will have already seen one of the most politically driven Best Picture debates unfurl in the media. This time, it's personal.


Perhaps more than ever, the Best Picture contest seems to double as a referendum on our culture's conscience. It's bigger than the Oscars, just as Beyonce losing Album of the Year to Adele was bigger than the Grammys. If movies are statements about the world around us, then one purpose of the Academy Awards is to adjudicate the year's best cinematic manifestos. That's complicated when titles from Obama's America are being feted in Trump's America.


It's especially complicated when considering the Oscars' thorny political backdrop. Throughout its 89-year history, the event has, after all, become a shrine to Hollywood's liberal values a even when the movies themselves aren't explicitly political.


In 2014, "12 Years a Slave" director Steve McQueen ended his Best Picture acceptance speech by dedicating the award "to all the people who have endured slavery and the 21 million people who still suffer slavery today." He then turned to the cast and crew surrounding him onstage and leapt into the air enthusiastically.


In 2016, "Spotlight" producer Michael Sugar addressed his Best Picture acceptance speech to Pope Francis, saying he hopes the recognition will inspire "a choir that will resonate all the way to the Vatican." He then turned and gave Michael Keaton a bear hug.


In both cases, it would have been surprising not to hear rallying cries related to the human-rights transgressions depicted in these films.



Sandwiched between the "12 Years a Slave" and "Spotlight" victories was "Birdman." The closest that movie came to tackling social ills was something along the lines of "middle age = hard." Yet director Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu, a Mexico native, politicized his acceptance speech anyway, ending with a sweet pro-immigration sentiment.


This all took place during Barack Obama's tenure. In terms of Hollywood's nerve center, it was a time of relative political ease.


But amid radical unrest, what does it mean to score popular culture's most luminous prize?


If there's one thing we know about the Oscars, it's this: Even by subjective standards, the year's best movie often doesn't nab Best Picture. "The Greatest Show on Earth" beat "Singin' in the Rain" because "Singin' in the Rain" wasn't even nominated. "How Green Was My Valley" topped "Citizen Kane," frequently cited as the greatest film ever made. "Out of Africa" outpaced "The Color Purple." "Dances with Wolves" stole the trophy from "Goodfellas." Perhaps most infamously, voters preferred "Crash" over "Brokeback Mountain," a groundbreaking masterpiece if we've ever seen one. Some would add "Birdman" to the list of failures, too a it did compete against "Boyhood" and "Selma."



Understanding that the minutiae of a Best Picture race has little to do with pure quality, any Oscar pundit will tell you this year's front-runner is "La La Land," a bubbly musical romance about an aspiring Los Angeles actress and a stubborn jazz purist. "Moonlight," one of 2016's most acclaimed releases, could unseat "La La Land" in an underdog triumph, partly because it's a phenomenal movie and partly because of the important story it tells, about a black latchkey kid grappling with his sexuality in the Miami projects. But watch out for "Hidden Figures," the charming box-office smash about three black women who were pivotal at NASA in the 1960s. "Hidden Figures" became a veritable threat to the "La La"-"Moonlight" two-hander when it won the Screen Actors Guild Awards' top prize, a coveted Best Picture pacesetter.


(Apologies to the other six nominees: "Arrival," "Fences," "Hacksaw Ridge," "Hell or High Water," "Lion" and "Manchester by the Sea." Thanks for playing.)


During awards season, that bastion of expensive politicking, offscreen narratives supersede art. This year's narrative goes like this: "La La Land" is the escapist swoon needed to distract from Trump's horror show, "Moonlight" is a socially vital tale not seen often enough, and "Hidden Figures" is a healthy blend of escapism and import.


Put another way, some journalists and Twitter objectors accuse "La La Land" of being a mansplain-y letdown with subpar dancers and a misguided homage to old-school musicals. They argue it's simply not the movie Trump's America needs, at least not when competing against stories about the very sorts of people our government would rather marginalize. The objectors' objectors call them killjoys who fail to appreciate Damien Chazelle's colorful flourishes and bittersweet enchantment. These arguments have occurred in countless think pieces since the moment "La La Land" opened. The New York Times' arts writers, for instance, chimed in one by one on the musical's merits, and lack thereof, last week.


Such political undercurrents offer a narrow, though not necessarily unfair, rubric for an awards show long granted an inflated premium within our pop-culture landscape. But if politics haunt the Oscars, shouldn't the recipients reflect the moment's political mood?


Maybe. History shows that honoring exemplary art has always been a mere slice of the Oscar pie.


When a coterie of Hollywood bigwigs created the Academy Awards, first held in 1929, they intended to harmonize the ballooning industry, which was facing labor disputes and struggling in the transition from silents to talkies. Within two years, subtle lobbying had started, with studios purchasing ads in trade magazines touting their candidates. In 1953, television broadcasts began, further romanticizing the event. As the years progressed, offscreen solicitations swelled. In 1979, the major studios reportedly spent a collective $1.8 million on Oscar campaigns. Two decades later, Miramax dropped an estimated $5 million on its successful "Shakespeare in Love" crusade alone. By that point, one has to wonder how much a movie's quality even matters.



Mudslinging, strategic film-festival debuts, baby-kissing industry events and an endless parade of media appearances have become part and parcel of the months-long Oscar season, ultimately defining the derby in tandem with an onslaught of predictive precursor prizes and lingering mythology about who is "overdue" for a win. (See: Leonardo DiCaprio's "Revenant" sweep.) The nearly 7,000-member Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences is a persuadable, navel-gazing hive mind that, despite recent diversity initiatives, remains dominated by older white men a the very group that decided "Crash" better reflects its values than "Brokeback Mountain."


It can't be over-emphasized: No matter how many A-listers wax poetic about the power of great art on Oscar night, the Oscars are never really about great art, not exclusively at least.


Which is why a Trump-era victory for "Moonlight" or "Hidden Figures" would be more significant than any other socially relevant winner from the past, including Obama-era champs "Spotlight" and "12 Years a Slave." Following two consecutive years without any acting nominees of color, we're blessed with one of the most diverse Oscar rosters in history. Why, some ask, would voters select "La La Land," in which a white dude mouths off about the death of jazz, an art form historically associated with African-Americans?



Because it's about Hollywood, of course. A Best Picture selection exemplifies the way the Academy wants to portray itself. In picking "La La Land," the electorate advances the notion that movies are the dream ballets to which we all aspire. In opting for "Moonlight," the Academy can confirm that art is inherently political, and that "Moonlight" is the film America needs to see now. "Hidden Figures," again, combines the two value systems.


In every sense, there's room for both styles of movies. Cinema does provide an escapism that has become woven into the fabric of our culture, and that's perfectly fine. It also tackles hot-button issues in ways that shape how we see the world around us. There's a reason Vietnam War epics "The Deer Hunter" and "Apocalypse Now" a both Oscar winners a were such important works in the 1970s, for example.


As mass media has mushroomed throughout the Oscars' history, so has our treatment of the Academy as a cultural figurehead. It means something a it means a lot, in fact a that so few filmmakers of color have been nominated, or that the Oscars have spotty credentials when it comes to stories about queer subjects. If these awards are America's gold standard, people of all backgrounds deserve an invitation.


But no matter the political jeremiads that flank Oscar night, the compulsion to gauge nominees based on the White House's affairs has never been this frank. Just look at the past decade. Analyses of 2010's campaigns indicated "The Hurt Locker" bested sci-fi behemoth "Avatar" because it staged a fierce dark-horse coup, not because it tackled the then-ongoing Iraq War. 2011's titleholder, "The King's Speech," a typical Hollywood period piece, is one of the more divisive Best Picture upsets, largely because the moral ambiguity and topical timeliness of "The Social Network" made for a more progressive filmmaking style. Many chalk up the next two choices a "The Artist" (over, say, "The Tree of Life") and "Argo" (over "Lincoln") a as evidence of Hollywood's love affair with itself.



These competing codes a potent campaigns, forward-thinking filmmaking, masturbatory interests a create a hodgepodge of Best Picture history that hasn't prepared us to agree that Trump's election should determine the winner. It is only within the Oscars' limited scope that "La La Land" and "Moonlight" a movies with little in common a are pitted against each other. And that's where it helps to realize the Oscars create more phony narratives about popular culture than perhaps any other institution. Suddenly, you're either a "Moonlight" fan or a "La La Land" fan, creating a false choice between supporting inclusivity or encouraging the same old Hollywood frolics.


But if there's one consistent message the Academy sends, it's that a Best Picture winner reflects the product Hollywood is proud to have made. Knowing the economic boon such a victory can bring to a movie, the Academy seems to say, "Go see this so we can make more like it."


For many playing along at home, that theory leads to an easy answer: We've seen movies like "La La Land" before, and we'll see them again. Instead, we must fight for movies like "Hidden Figures" and, especially, "Moonlight," which would be the second-lowest-grossing winner in history after "The Hurt Locker."


It's encouraging to know the Academy has proven increasingly capable of crowning films that aren't the box-office bonanzas so cherished in a mercurial industry. Look no further than the little-seen "Birdman" conquering the lucrative "American Sniper," or the fact that "Spotlight" was every bit as worthy as "Mad Max: Fury Road." Despite rapacious business models, money isn't the only form of profit. To coronate low performers is to risk seeming out of touch with common moviegoers, but the Oscars were never designed to be populist anyway.


That timeworn tug-of-war is on display again this year. The box-office success of "La La Land" and "Hidden Figures" make them far more popular, and arguably more relevant as a result. Yet despite initially positive reviews, "La La Land" does not mean to its fans what "Moonlight" means to its admirers, especially considering the latter's smaller marketing budget. Few will leave "La La Land" thinking, "Finally, my story is being told." And anyway, "La La" and "Hidden Figures" did not muster the volume of critical enthusiasm that "Moonlight" enjoyed.


What, then, makes one deserving of Best Picture over another? The weight of Hollywood's future.



For a final example, let's turn to the most glaring anecdote: In 1995, the edgy oddity "Pulp Fiction" lost to "Forrest Gump," a box-office medalist drenched in conventional bathos. It's an indisputable travesty, as "Pulp Fiction" is superior by every rubric except revenue. Critics knew it then, and just about everyone knows it now. Moreover, there would be ample "Forrest Gumps," aka fables about heterosexual white men overcoming adversity in fantastical ways. Less reliable was the assumption that mainstream moviegoers in the mid-'90s would turn the next "Pulp Fiction" into a notable hit, thereby encouraging studios to invest in more like it a and that's a big part of why the Academy made a mistake. (Case in point: Quentin Tarantino's next film, "Jackie Brown," grossed one-third of what "Pulp Fiction" made domestically.) It's not that there isn't room for movies like "Forrest Gump." But they do not boast the same flash-in-the-pan singularity of "Pulp Fiction," just like "La La Land" does not carry the same dynamic originality of "Moonlight."


At some point, the Academy has to decide for itself what the future of moviegoing must look like. What should people want to see? What should filmmakers aspire to? Dream ballets or mirrors held up to a knotty world? In other words, will voters pick more of the same or blaze a fresh frontier? With so much of the Obama administration's progress in flux, our democracy awaits the answer.

Lindsay Lohan Claims She Was Profiled While Wearing A Headscarf
Date: Tue, 21 Feb 2017 09:33:35 -0500
From huffingtonpost.com



Lindsay Lohan alleges she was profiled at London's Heathrow Airport on Monday while wearing a headscarf.


The actress, who has been reading and studying the Quran, claimed she was stopped by an airport employee during an interview with "Good Morning Britain" Tuesday.


"When I was flying to New York recently, I was wearing headscarf and I got stopped," she said. "She [an airport official] opened my passport and saw 'Lindsay Lohan' and started immediately apologizing, but then said, 'Please take off your headscarf.' And I did. It's OK. But what scared me was, at that moment, how would another woman who doesn't feel comfortable taking off her headscarf feel? That was really interesting to me. I was kind of in shock."



Lohan, who described the experience as "jarring," said she was traveling from Turkey and wore the headscarf out of respect.


"I felt more comfortable that way [with the headscarf] and then I was a little scared going to America," she added.


A representative for Heathrow Airport responded with the following statement when reached for comment by The Huffington Post: "Heathrow respects the cultural and religious needs of all passengers traveling through the airport. We work hard to provide our passengers with great service while ensuring everyone remains safe and secure."


The "Mean Girls" star has been seen carrying a Quran since 2015. During an interview earlier this month with the Daily Mail, she said the current political climate surrounding President Donald Trump's Muslim ban has left her unsettled.


"I was scared to come here with everything going on because of my personal beliefs," she said.

Jaime Lannister Doesn't Want Us To Look Back And Realize We're 'F**ked'
Date: Tue, 21 Feb 2017 09:06:17 -0500
From huffingtonpost.com

Winter is coming ... for now.


The effects of climate change may not be visible on "Game of Thrones" Season 7, where Westeros faces a long cold spell and icy White Walkers seem poised to move south. But actor Nikolaj Coster-Waldau says he believes the "vast majority of scientists who say [climate change] is man-made and we have to change our ways."


While scientists repeatedly warn about the dangers of climate change, many a including some in the Trump administration a have called the threat a hoax.


Coster-Waldau, who serves as a UNDP Goodwill Ambassador, doesn't get it. In fact, Jaime "Fookin'" Lannister (as Bronn might say) has the perfect reason why action needs to be taken. He doesn't want us to get "fooked."


"I always see it this way: We look in the future, let's say 50 years from now. We do all we can to combat this and we find out, in 50 years' time, 'Hey we couldn't have done anything. This was just nature. We had nothing to do with it.' Well, would we have wasted all this energy? No, because we probably would have gotten away from fossil fuels, we'd have much cleaner air and cleaner water and a cleaner world. That would be great, of course," Coster-Waldau told The Huffington Post.


He continued, "Now, let's say -- if we don't do anything today -- and 50 years from now, find out, 'Hey, we're fucked. We're screwed. We should've done something, and we didn't.' I just don't understand the logic behind this."


Coster-Waldau put his ambassadorship to work recently by partnering with Google Street View to capture images in Greenland, a place where the effects of climate change can actually be seen.





The actor told us that if his "Game of Thrones" character had Google Street View, he would check out where Khaleesi has been hanging out or even look at the Lannister's home in Casterly Rock.


"He hasn't been home for a real long time so he'd probably also check out his home castle," said Coster-Waldau.


In real-life, his goals are much different. The actor captured images with Street View to raise awareness for climate change and bring some attention to Greenland, his wife Nukaaka Coster-Waldau's native land. Coster-Waldau also wrote a blog post about his experience in Greenland.


In response to follow-up questions over email about what individuals can do to help and the Trump administration's policies toward climate change, he pointed to a passage he wrote:



We have a responsibility to protect this beautiful planet we live on, and I'm starting at my own front door. But everywhere and everyone is vulnerable to the effects of our warming planet. Let's band together and do something about it--learn about global efforts to combat climate change and discover ways to take action.



The things Jaime Lannister does for love ... of the planet.

Stephen Colbert Explains Why Trump Is More Of A 'Bite-Size' Dictator
Date: Tue, 21 Feb 2017 09:02:02 -0500
From huffingtonpost.com



Donald Trump is apparently putting the "tater" in dictator.


Stephen Colbert slammed President Trump on Monday's "Late Show" for his recent tweet calling various news organizations "the enemy of the American People."






"Sorry, ISIS," said Colbert. "If you want to get on the list, you gotta publish photos of Trump's inauguration crowd. Then he'll be really, really angry at you."


Colbert pointed out how Senator John McCain criticized the comments, saying that you need a "free and many times adversarial press" to preserve democracy.


"Without it, I'm afraid that we would lose so much of our individual liberties over time. That's how dictators get started," said McCain.


That sounds bigly scary, but Colbert helped explain McCain's comment.


"Just to be clear, he's not saying Trump is a dictator. He's saying getting rid of the free press is how dictators get started, OK? He's not calling him a full dictator. He's more bite-size. He's a dictator-tot," said Colbert.

George Clooney Says The Sweetest Things About Becoming A Dad
Date: Tue, 21 Feb 2017 08:22:42 -0500
From huffingtonpost.com





George Clooney isn't up in the air about he and his wife, Amal, expecting twins.


When French film host Laurent Weil introduced the subject by asking the 55-year-old actor how he would prepare for the role of fatherhood, Clooney joked, "lock yourself in a room."


But he eventually got serious. "It's exciting and we're really happy and really excited," he told Weil Saturday on "Rencontres de Cinema." "It's going to be an adventure."


Clooney added that they've "embraced" the moment "with arms wide open."


The 55-year-old actor and first-time dad, who spoke with Weil before he was to be honored at the Cesar Awards next weekend, noted that French actor Jean-Paul Belmondo had a child with Nathalie Tardivel when he was 70. "So I"m feeling a little better about being 56 by the time [they arrive]," he said.


The approximate due date is reportedly June.


Clooney told Weil that when he broke the news to a tableful of friends whose kids are already young adults, they gave him a ribbing.


"It got really quiet, and they all just started making baby crying noises," he said. "And the whole table just busted up laughing."


The interview got naturally around to politics and President Donald Trump, prompting Clooney to say: "We have a demagogue in the White House; we need the fourth estate, which is journalism."


Clooney's remarks on fatherhood begin below around the 11-minute mark:
