Dustin Lance Black: I have no respect for actors who hide their sexuality | Film | The Guardian
He said: “I’ve never encountered homophobia in casting from the studios or networks – not once, not ever. Where you encounter it is with the agents and the managers, they’re the ones who have an outdated notion of the price an actor might pay if it’s discovered that they’re LGBTQ. Often they don’t want to see anything happen that might compromise their investment.”

Amazon Ups the Ante on Streaming Video, Challenging Netflix
Amazon has pulled the curtain back on its $9-a-month standalone video streaming service, which will give consumers access to content they otherwise could only get through Amazon Prime, which costs $99 a year. Amazon's new service is $1 a month cheaper than rival Netflix, // For years, the two have worked to one-up each other with exclusive content deals and original series like Netflix’s “House of Cards” and Amazon’s “Mozart in the Jungle.” [...] Amazon spends about $3 billion on streaming video content annually, compared with $4 billion for Netflix, not including overseas rights or DVDs, said Wedbush’s Mr. Pachter. For its part, Santa Monica, Calif.-based Hulu has become a competitive buyer of library and original programming, increasing its content outlays from $600 million in 2014 to $1.5 billion in 2015, according to estimates from Nomura Securities.

Fixation on box office hits is killing British theatre, says David Hare
Playwright says the craft is being damaged by focus on selling seats [ // Theatre now following into the steps of Hollywood and Television. ] [...] The playwright said: “Because subsidy is so stretched … every director of a theatre has an emollient eye on the box office. It is now assumed that what is good is that which succeeds.

“When I was young, British theatre was like a tree in which many different birds could nest. But now it’s just for the hawks. It’s not for the birds of plumage, who are not so welcome any more, mainly because they don’t fill the commercial imperative of selling every seat. That, I’m afraid, is how artistic directors are judged.” [ you are good if you are a commercial success, ie Michael Bay ]

What the Hell Happened to Personal Style?
Where a 14-year-old Kate Moss put in her time on Portobello Road with Corinne Day, learning to thrift, self-style, and create her own ambling glamour, the young fashion plates of today have outsourced the development of their style to professionals. And those employed to keep the young and stylish considered that way don’t dare take any real risks, for fear of sartorial missteps, bad tabloid titles (and the online equivalent), or a mention on a worst-dressed list. [...] We are so inundated by these images from paparazzi, from media, from the stars themselves, that we cease to see any meaning behind any of it. Which would be fine (their funeral, as the saying goes), except it’s a very costly absence of meaning, both societally and economically.

The Truth About Caitlyn Jenner’s Politics (
After all, many Americans still see transgender people as strange or illegitimate. So it wouldn’t surprise me if interest in this story is partly driven by a desire to see the world’s most famous transgender person being taken down by her own community. Caitlyn Jenner has positioned herself as a representative or “ambassador” of trans communities, so I can understand why trans people object or take issue when her views fail to accurately reflect or support those communities. But when people who are unconcerned with transgender rights themselves start piling on, quite frankly, I am suspicious.

How the 'risk' of making The Night Manager paid off
Each episode cost an estimated £3m to make, and one executive producer, the Ink Factory's Simon Cornwell, says the lavish adaptation was "a risk."
"It's a difficult book to adapt," he says, "and there have been quite a few attempts to make it into a film, it just didn't work. It needed six hours to explain the story.
"But to all intents and purposes, it's been written and shot as a film - we just hired one director, Susanne Bier, for all six episodes. I always think of it as a film - just a six-hour one."

It's Time To Stop Apologizing For Tina Fey - BuzzFeed News
[ more entertainment, don't make people think, don't try to make them think ... in cinema people uhhhmmmming ] But good books do not always make good movies — especially since the transformation from book to screen, at least in Hollywood’s hands, generally subtracts instead of adds nuance. [...] The most successful films are documentaries, which don’t face the inherent problem of casting actors, and white actors in particular, to play “bad guys” of different races, and high farces: films like Dr. Strangelove, M*A*S*H, and In the Loop that expand and eviscerate the inherent, if hidden, ridiculousness of modern war. [...] [ film has only ] cheap tricks, not the lacerating humor of effective farce. [...] women’s place in society, and sexual desirability as an alternately empowering and infantilizing experience. [...] The film dodges that idea, however, in favor of pitting Robbie’s character — who was created specifically for the purposes of the film — as Fey’s “competition.”

Made in Chelsea's Spencer Matthews took steroids 'to look good in the shower' - BBC Newsbeat
And admits he took them because he "wanted to look as good as possible". He says it was because he wanted to be bigger and stronger while training for the match. Newsbeat recently revealed one in 10 men training in UK gyms struggle with a body anxiety known as "bigorexia", or muscle dysmorphia. It's been compared to anorexia in reverse - where men become obsessed with putting on muscle. Depression, steroid abuse and even suicide are effects of bigorexia.

Zoë Saldana als Nina Simone: "Nimm Ninas Namen nicht in den Mund" - SPIEGEL ONLINE
[ OJ Times cover made OJ blacker, was used publicly in trial by defence team ] In dem Streit geht es im Kern um eine Debatte, die auch bei der Oscar-Verleihung ein Thema war: Kritiker monieren, dass weiße Schauspieler Rollen übernehmen, die eigentlich mit Afroamerikanern, Asiaten oder amerikanischen Ureinwohnern besetzt werden müssten - um die Filme mainstreamfähiger zu machen. Dieses sogenannte Whitewashing führt unter anderem dazu, dass es kaum starke Rollen für nichtweiße Schauspieler gibt, was wiederum zu einer recht überschaubaren Diversität in der Filmszene führt.

Diskriminierung von Frauen: Immer wieder, bis sich etwas ändert - SPIEGEL ONLINE

Fast möchte ich denken, sicher, ich vergleiche mich ja auch nicht mit einem Border Collie, womöglich aus der Sorge, intellektuell schlechter abzuschneiden. Es ist so unendlich langweilig in jede Richtung. Für die denkenden Männer, sich immer anhören zu müssen, was für einer bornierten Spezies sie angehören, für die Weiblichen, die nicht Weißen, die nicht Heterosexuellen, permanent in jedem Detail darauf gestoßen zu werden, dass sie eben nicht der Norm entsprechen. Dass sie weniger wert sind, dass sie nicht genügen. Langweilig. Unmodern. Öde. Ich rede nicht von Bezahlung als Ausdruck der Gleichheit, sondern über Kunst, weil das sowieso keinen interessiert. Ich rede nicht über die 70 Prozent der Welt, in der Frauen in einer Art als Haustier behandelt werden, von der die meisten in Europa nichts ahnen.

This was not the first stand taken against the reduction of women in the industry to their clothes and jewellery. The past few years have seen Elisabeth Moss give the middle finger to the “mani-cam” at the Golden Globes, Cate Blanchett demand: “Do you do that to the guys?” as a camera panned up and down her body on the red carpet, and a series of women from Reese Witherspoon to Amy Poehler demand that reporters ask them more than questions about their frocks. We’ve also seen the actress and singer Zendaya speak out about racist responses to her dreadlocks at the Oscars, and Bridesmaids star Melissa McCarthy design her own dresses after designers refused to dress her, proving that Hollywood’s incredibly narrow definition of beauty is discriminatory on the basis of size and race. [...] find themselves pitted against each other in excruciating “best dressed” and “worst dressed” lists, the awards season will continue to provide a high-profile, glossy microcosm of wider prejudice.

Dustin Hoffman on Oscars: ‘It’s always been racism’ | Page Six
Dustin Hoffman feels there’s a systemic racial problem in America that goes beyond the Oscars. [...] “It’s always been racism. It’s kind of a reflection of what the country is,” he said. Hoffman made the comments while attending the opening of the Metrograph, the first independently-owned movie theater to open in Manhattan in more than decade. “They call my era, the Golden Age of film, but I think the Golden Age of film still exists, but it’s done by the indies, and I think that is what this theater is for,” Hoffman said. As for his thoughts on what can bring more diversity to Hollywood: “We change when the people that are oppressed force it to change,” Hoffman said.

It’s good for audiences and it’s good for the bottom line.” Bad Robot will reportedly work with its agency partner CAA and studios Warner Bros and Paramount to ensure women and minorities are submitted for writing, directing and acting jobs for the company in direct proportion to their representation among the US population.

What the 2016 Oscars taught us: the Academy should be scrapped | David Thomson | Film | The Guardian
This self-serving club has outlived its purpose, and reforming its membership will do nothing to make things better [...] And this year, the audience on TV dropped by 8% – it was down to about 34 million. [...] Academy membership has been a joke for decades: too many whites; too few women; too few people of colour; too few young members; too few who have to see the films before voting – like none. Why? Because they don’t have to, because this is a club for the elite in show business, as hostile to the young and to outsiders as any club membership. [...] the hysteria over these awards is demented and exhausting. Major newspapers and the forest of blogs start Oscar-baiting in September and the frenzy runs for six months. The disproportion is driving serious movie enthusiasts to a point of not reading, or getting angry with the Academy. The Golden Globes are more fun, and the Independent Spirit awards are a more suitable recognition for movies made from the heart.

Rooney Mara über die ungleiche Bezahlung in Hollywood - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Viele Schauspielerinnen verdienen weniger als ihre männlichen Co-Stars. Die Gage sei aber gar nicht das eigentliche Problem, findet Rooney Mara. Sondern die tiefe Verankerung sexistischer Motive. [...] Es solle ihrer Ansicht nach nicht darum gehen, dass Frauen weniger bezahlt bekommen, sondern um das Warum. "Das ist doch nur eine Begleiterscheinung einer viel größeren Sache." In der Filmindustrie ,aber auch darüber hinaus, werde eine bestimmte Sprache benutzt, um Frauen zu beschreiben - die man aber niemals für eine Mann benutzen würde. Das sei vor allem so, erklärt Mara, wenn es um meinungsstarke, selbstbeherrschte Frauen gehe.

Will Deadpool lead to a deluge of hard-R comic book movies? | Film | The Guardian
Despite its adults-only rating, the film has been a smash – a sure sign that we can expect more sex, violence and swearing in the next crop of superhero movies [...] Trends all begin with one huge success, and today that success is Deadpool. You can almost hear the Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad cutting room floors being minutely swept for an excised F-bomb, stray nipple or non-PG-13-friendly punch in the neck that can be reinserted now that R-ratings are all the rage. “Giving the fans what they want,” is what they’ll say. [...] But, as with previous trends like 3D, the immediate followers are likely to, as Gunn noted, miss the point entirely, not realising people have taken so keenly to Deadpool because it’s different, smart and self-aware, not because of the staccato deployment of dick jokes and exploding heads.

Deadpool's success accelerates the inevitable: total geek domination | Film | The Guardian
But Deadpool doesn’t just offer up a hero it thinks the fanbase will love, it offers up an entire world. It is one of the best articulations of “geek culture” to reach the big screen. And if it can pull off big numbers at the cinema with an exclusively adult audience, it will presage not only more movies like it but bring geeks one step closer to what they truly want; control of the entire world. [...] Basically Deadpool is Reddit: the movie. It’s highly enjoyable, and very well made, but it’s also a marker, a moment where a massive multi-million dollar bet has been made on geek culture being not only a mainstream proposition but an adult one too.
