Months of Meryl: THE RIVER WILD

"Great post and comments. Yes, Streep had to navigate the rough waters of being in her 40's! I do think she smashed through the glass ceiling for women since she persevered and then became an even bigger star in her 50's." - Sister Rona

"One of my favourite movies from my teen years - I'm shocked at how long ago this was released. It was Meryl that sold this movie for me and is the reason I saw it. At the time, and I still feel this way, she is the reason to watch and believe this film." -Filmboymichael

Live with Soderbergh

Me prepping for the chatHey guys

I was on HuffPostLive with Steven Soderbergh earlier today. I'm the bald one *without* the awesome filmography.

Sadly I only got one question in though you know I had a whole list. I haven't done a lot of these talking head gigs but it would be sweet to do more. Practice making slightly less imperfect.

After the interview I hit Side Effects. I know that's backwards but I don't control screening schedules. More on that one next week. But as you'll see in the interview Soderbergh is a thoughtful articulate filmmaker and I'll be sad to see him retire post Behind the Candelabra

This will just sound wrong but—how the hell did you get that?

LOVED your question on how he uses and taps into movie stars - and loved his answer even more. Although I find the idea of a movie star NOT knowing why people love them alternately completely absurd and so, SO right.

January 25, 2013 | Unregistered Commenterdenny

3rtful -- um. cuz this site is popular? actually i'm not sure why. i've never been sure why i get invited or don't to the things that i do or don't get invited to.

Denny - thank u. I was hoping to get more questions in but it is what it is!

January 25, 2013 | Unregistered Commenternathanielr

ooh, great snag! I saw this too late so i'll have to watch the replay though. lots of great interviews this past few months!

Streep is coming....

but i'd really want to see an interview with Renée Zellweger. Not only for the "oh, snap." factor of it but i'm genuinely curious as to why she pretty much just stopped working or making appearances.

Why are you bald?

January 25, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterGustavo

When are your acting nominees coming in FB Awards? AKA my Oscars

January 25, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterSteve

Gustavo - cuz i have no hair? cuz i shave my head?

January 25, 2013 | Unregistered Commenternathanielr

We'd like more of these, please!

January 25, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterPatryk

patryk -- more tv punditry? I am so bad on camera *sniffle*

January 25, 2013 | Unregistered Commenternathanielr

Not posted anywhere, currently?

January 25, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterBeau

Seems like you got more in than the other two! You did fine ;)

January 25, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterBeau

Loved, loved, loved.

January 25, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterBrianZ

Your question >>>> everything everyone else was asking (though I like the Liberace info). And yeah, really smart answer from him.

January 25, 2013 | Unregistered Commentereurocheese

you're popular, yes, and i'm glad you're getting good this from the wonderful website. but maybe we could earn a lot of money with those fyc ads, too. this website is a zillion times better than awards daily and incontention and hollywood-elsewhere (yes, you're the best oscar blogger) and i don't see any ads here?

i know you're going to talk about side effects next week, but, for now, may we expect somthing oscar?

January 25, 2013 | Unregistered Commentercal roth

Cal -- trust that i'd love to have the ads. I need to eat and pay rent. But studios didn't buy this year. :( pity cuz i'm pulling down worthy numbers to earn advertiser support. (sigh)

yes, back to Oscar & Film Bitch for next few weeks.

January 25, 2013 | Registered CommenterNATHANIEL R

Bleh. Your question was good. The Huffpost moderator guy was pretty insufferable though. Dude can gussy up his banal "mishaps" question with all the "I'm a huge nerd" froufrou he wants, he's still just asking Steven Soderbergh for backstage gossip. At least Soderbergh was generous with his answers. Wish you'd gotten to ask more of your questions.

January 26, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterVictoria

I meant, something Oscar from Side Effects

January 26, 2013 | Unregistered Commentercal roth

cal - no. 100% no.
