Last week it was an anti-coal rant, this week on Apple TV+’s The Morning Show, Reese Witherspoon’s character admitted to a teenage abortion that inspired a viral moment that rallied the country behind her.
Apple TV+'s flagship series, The Morning Show, was inspired by a book by CNN's Brian Stelter and it shows. Clearly meant to be prestige television in the mold of HBO, the series is more preachy, self-indulgent Newsroom than juicy, story-driven Big Little Lies. The first three episodes of a 10 episode season were released with the premiere of Apple TV+ on November 1.
It looks like many cable television channels still love former Democratic President Barack Obama and his wife, Michelle. The latest example of this was an announcement made on Monday, when Showtime introduced a new hour-long series focusing on recent first ladies in the White House. Unslurprisingly, the program will be entitled First Ladies and has been put on fast-track development for the pay cable network to present descriptions of Eleanor Roosevelt, Betty Ford and Michelle Obama.
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.”
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.
With sexual harassment in the news in the wake of the Harvey Weinstein scandal, is it really a good time to hold a political fundraiser for someone who used his position of power to gain sexual advantage from the wife of someone who once ran his political campaign? Movie star Reese Witherspoon held a political fundraiser on Friday at her home for the gubernatorial campaign of California Lt. Governor Gavin Newsom who admitted to an affair in 2007 with the wife of the campaign manager for his election as San Francisco mayor.
This apparent hypocrisy served as material for the creative juices of infamous street artist Sabo who placed a rather, um, unique door hanger at many homes in Witherspoon's neighborhood.
Hollywood has never beat around the bush when it comes to proclaiming its politics -- and that includes the shows and stars the industry honors with nominations and awards. Yesterday, July 13, the complete list for the Emmy nominations was released. Most of nominees were shows or actors that supported Planned Parenthood, Hillary Clinton (or Bernie Sanders, in the case of Susan Sarandon), and supported the LGBTQ in their political correctness. In fact, some of the shows nominated have been so outspoken and even scandalous in their content that it seems as if the media will willingly praise only political, liberal programs as quality television.
The title for episode two of Big Little Lies, which aired Sunday, February 26, on HBO, ended up having a much deeper meaning than just competition among some of the mothers to have the most popular children, the best birthday parties, and to be the alpha mother ruling over all other moms at fictional Otter Bay Elementary School set in Monterey, California.
At a Hollywood conference on women in film, actress and producer Reese Witherspoon was asked if she would ever consider playing Hilary Clinton and said, ““I’ve actually been asked to play Hillary Clinton a couple of times…But didn’t I play her already? When I did meet Hillary Clinton, she said, ‘Everybody talks to me about Tracy Flick in Election all the time.'”
That's two famous actresses that have now denied being up for the part of a young Hillary Clinton in the upcoming biopic "Rodham."
After Jessica Chastain's denial earlier this month, Scarlett Johansson has also come out saying she's never been contacted about the part or seen a script.
