Out of the mouths of babes, as they say! When it’s Hollywood babes, however, what comes out of their mouths isn’t always very cute or funny. Such was the case on HBO’s hit drama Big Little Lies which is on its second season after the first received rave reviews. On Sunday’s episode, “She Knows,” the writers of thought it would be amusing to have a little boy call God a “douchebag.”
The media loves to slobber over The Post.
In the recently released list of 2018 Oscar nominations, The Post (Steven Spielberg’s attempt to address Trump through film) was recognized twice. The film, which was cobbled together after Trump was elected president as some form of cinematic resistance, somehow managed to be nominated for best film and for best actress.
Feminists and activists are always eager to build a victim narrative. So it should come as no surprise that the feminists behind the trends “Times Up” and “#MeToo” have decided to re-define terminology in order to better fit their narrative. Activists Tarana Burke, Ai-Jen Poo, and Monica Ramirez wrote, in a guest-column for the Hollywood Reporter.
CNN International journalist Christiane Amanpour sat down with Tom Hanks and Meryl Streep, the stars of Steven Spielberg’s new film, The Post, Wednesday, to talk about what else? How their movie was a referendum on President Trump.
Actress Meryl Streep appeared as guest on Jimmy Kimmel Live Monday evening, where she talked with the late-night talk show host about her new political drama, The Post, about the Washington paper’s involvement in publishing classified government documents about the Vietnam War.
We know rank and file liberals aren’t happy to have a reality show host as their president. But we don’t know yet how they feel about their betters in the media anointing the Doyenne of Daytime TV as President Oprah.
In a fawning interview with the stars of The Post, on Thursday’s NBC Today, co-anchor Savannah Guthrie gushed over Hollywood’s latest love letter to the liberal media: “The movie is getting great reviews. And for something that took place 45 years ago, it feels like it could have been ripped right out of a newspaper today. Very timely.”
Apparently, an actress can dodge a bullet by making an issue about conservative politics. Actress Meryl Streep, interviewed by the New York Times along with her co-star in The Post Tom Hanks, was asked by Cara Buckley about her silence on sex predator Harvey Weinstein, the producer Streep worked with for many years. She deflected the question by telling Buckley, “I don’t want to hear about the silence of me. I want to hear about the silence of Melania Trump. I want to hear from her. She has so much that’s valuable to say. And so does Ivanka. I want her to speak now.”
This year for Christmas The Washington Post is getting a rosy movie named after itself. The Post film, due out Dec. 22, dramatizes the paper’s 1971 decision to publish the Pentagon Papers which revealed the White House had been lying about the Vietnam War. The film was produced by Participant Media, a media company funded by left-leaning donors that often creates left-wing films.
As with most streaming shows of late, at least the ones that try to be edgy (which means pretty much all of them), it takes a minute to process what you’ve watched sometimes. Such is the case with Netflix’s Lady Dynamite which so far tops the list of confusing and bizarre streaming shows.
You may believe Hollywood touts a strong pro-choice bias. And according to a recent poll, most Americans would agree with you.
Rewind to January 2017 – a politically fraught month, with the Women’s March and March for Life scheduled back-to-back, not to mention President Trump’s Inauguration. Twenty million viewers were watching Meryl Streep vent about politics and call Hollywood and the press “the most vilified segments in American society right now.” She also lauded Hollywood’s impressive cultural diversity.
The 89th Academy Awards, aka The Oscars, was broadcast by ABC live from the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles on Sunday night, hosted by late night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel. As with other award shows of late, politics reared its ugly liberal head and showed us exactly why Hollywood is often referred to derisively as "La La Land."
