Kate Winslet Refuses to Discuss Woody Allen Controversy Because It’s a “Difficult Conversation” as If That Isn’t the Entire Point

The Hollywood Reporter had a roundtable of the industry's top producers and bothered to include one woman, so that’s something I guess. The panel included: Judd Apatow (The Big Sick), Seth Rogen (The Disaster Artist), Amy Pascal (The Post, Molly's Game), Jason Blum (Get Out), Ridley Scott (Blade Runner 2049, All the Money in the World) and Eric Fellner (Darkest Hour).Read More
It's not only frustrating that far too many creative men in the entertainment industry have been accused of some sort of abuse, sexual assault, or sexual misconduct, but they are also allowed to continue to have thriving careers while facing minimal consequences, if any at all, from their industry. Woody Allen is one of those men, and Kate Winslet is a frustrating example of Hollywood's ingrained, systemic sexism in action.Read More

The Elle Women in Hollywood Awards are a great excuse for Hollywood's female heavy-hitters to get together and recognize the strength they can find in each other while navigating the entertainment industry at any level. This year's award recipients were shining examples of women who work toward leveling the playing field for themselves and for those women climbing up the ranks behind them.Read More
Why did Alan Rickman’s sophomore directing effort (after his underrated The Winter Guest, starring Emma Thompson) get received as a limp noodle? That is the big question surrounding the film.Read More
The Aaron Sorkiniest.
Apple's Steve Jobs was a pretty huge public presence for the company, so the heavy (over?) dramatization of his life in his Aaron Sorkin/Danny Boyle biopic was fairly inevitable—and this trailer certainly meets those expectations.Read More

Oh, it's on now.
As DC's Wonder Woman once said, "Ice cream is wonderful." Buckets full of ice? Less so, if the reaction of Batman V Superman's Gal Gadot is any indication.
