Hello Linky

In Contention talks to Saoirse Ronan about Grand Budapest Hotel, How I Live Now and acting for Ryan Gosling
DP/30 Chiwetel Ejiofor from 12 Years a Slave
Instagram James Franco's 'all the kids are doing it' selfie. (I love seeing celebrity mirror shots because that's how they see themselves. Ever notice how different you look in photos -how other people see you- versus how you look to yourself in the mirror?)
The Hollywood Reporter TIR wins the top prize and Matthew McConaughey (Dallas Buyers Club) and Scarlett Johansson (Her) the acting awards at the Rome Film Festival

In Contention doublestuffed Oscar season coming at'cha
Pajiba on the highest grossing black directors. I expect Lee Daniels will keep moving up this list since he's prolific.
Coming Soon the German trailer to a new animated Tarzan

Off-Cinema
Playbill Carol Channing and Justin Bond for a little Hello Dolly 50th anniversary special? YES PLEASE
Salon are confused earnest celebrities the best at Twitter?
Variety Spider-Man Turn Off The Dark will (finally) close on Broadway in early 2014
Television Blend Arrow could lead to The Flash getting his own tv series. (I wish I liked this show but I've given it more than a fair try and it's dull/lame.)
Towleroad Warren & The Bening's son Stephen is so adorable (and totally looks like a blend of them if you ask me). Good for him becoming a reliable trans activist these past couple of years.

Today's Watch
The artist Anders Ramsell has "paraphrased" Blade Runner (his words) with 12,597 paintings. 

I've done nothing with my life!

I'm convinced Carol Channing is never going to die. She's immortal. She toured when she was in her 70s. Now she's in her 90s and she's doing a Hello Dolly special? Incredible.

The best they could come up with for the Flash movie was Greg Berlanti's team of writers. I'll remind people: A great Rogues Gallery should mean the studio can lure a genuinely great creative team (meaning...not freaking Berlanti) and be confident they'll give you the best movie they can with whatever budget you assign them and whatever run time they feel is justified (For DC, that means Batman, Superman, Green Lantern and The Flash should EASILY justify giving ACTUAL TALENT $150 million plus budgets and a (max) runtime of 3 hours) and a terrible Rogues Gallery means, no matter how important the hero may otherwise be (and yes, I AM talking Wonder Woman here), the budget and running time should actually be EXTREMELY limited (with the gallery she has, Wonder Woman's MAX budget for a first movie should be $80 million and her maximum running time should be 110 minutes.) Someone in between those two extremes of quality (Green Arrow, most notably actually has a better overall gallery), could justify a relative mid size at a $110-$115 million opening entry.

Addendum: And they would justify a maximum 140 minute run time.

In other news, Daniel Day-Lewis and Isabelle Adjani's son is a rapper now: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2ZNHjOVxz80

Oh my god, he totally looks like what would happen if you transposed Annette's face onto Warren's or vice versa. He's so cute.

Speaking of celebrities' children, this is going to be incredibly bitchy of me, but how did the offspring of Isabelle Adjani and Daniel Day-Lewis end up looking like that? :(
