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

Links: MTV Movie Awards and More...

The Guardian asks a really good question. Had James Dean lived would he have been a Newman or a Brando?
Nerd Approved swapping the genders on Disney characters
Comics Alliance one minute of the opening battle from X-Men Days of Future Past. Looks exciting
The Guardian an interview with the disfigured actor from Under the Skin
Vox 21 Times Stephen Colbert has dropped his satiric character and been himself 
Telegraph an unusually candid confession: Pierce Brosnan doesn't think he was good enough as James Bond
Empire Harrison Ford talks Bladerunner sequel 

MTV Movie Awards
I "forgot" to watch. But the internet provides the highlights anyway. Like Zac Efron getting his shirt ripped off. The masses have now seen his chest approximately in everything but it still excites them (More is more?)

Comics Alliance one minute of the opening battle from X-Men Days of Future Past. Looks exciting
Towleroad Jared Leto's AIDS focused speech. Yes he won another award for Rayon "Best Transformation"
YouTube they aired a commercia lfor A Million Ways to Die in the West. Charlize Theron's look is very Sharon Stone in The Quick and the Dead, right? Only with humor.
In Contention has a best and worst list from the night
Variety has the complete winners list which were awful... Mila Kunis terrible terrible villain in Oz: The Great and Powerful won (there were such better options like my Best Villain Nominees). Yikes. For what it's worth Hunger Games: Catching Fire won Best Movie and both lead actor prizes. Yes, Josh Hutcherson too! Since this is, you know, MTV and Twilight no longer exists.

This Weekend's Miracle
Michelle Pfeiffer left the house!

We always have to report on it since it's so rare. She was at Coachella in California this weekend with an undetermined friend.

Today's Watch
Awesomely talented Laura Benanti explains the current Broadway season. (I don't understand why a great TV series doesn't snap her up. She was so good on the short-lived Playboy Club and in The Sound of Music: Live and surely she deserves better than a Law & Order franchise. Especially since the bitch can sang.)

On snap you just dissed Mrs. Spielberg!! #shotsfired

April 14, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterDavid

Is that Michelle Pfiffer's sister, Dedee, with her?

April 14, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterMarcos


It's Kate Capshaw, wife of film director Steven Spielberg.

April 14, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterTyra

Like anyone even knows who Kate Capshaw is anymore.

April 14, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterTroy H.

The only thing I remember her in was that awful "How to Make an American Quilt" movie with Winona Ryder in the 90's LOL

April 14, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterDavid

Laura Benanti was so good in NBC's Go On. She really shone brightly with star appeal. Her number with Andrew Rannells and Megan Hilty at last year's Tonys in tribute to cancelled TV shows was so cool. Love her!

April 14, 2014 | Unregistered Commenterbrookesboy

Totally agree on Laura Benanti. In this promo, she looks like she's doing an episode of Drunk History--Broadway Style. LMAO--"Bridges of Madison County is about my ex-husband making out with Kelli O'Hara."

Hey--the Pfeiffer shot at Coachella is a bit stalkerish, ala Just Jared or OK Magazine. Red Carpet events are good; celebs out getting coffee or attending music festivals or coming out of the gym or dropping their kids at school shouldn't be ok, even for us superfans.

April 14, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterPam

I didn't know Kate Capshaw(queen of the shiksas) was a friend of Michelle's. Also, Pam she was at a huge music festival that for years has been a paparazzi haven.

April 14, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterTy

Kunis' win makes perfect sense to me. What's a greater atrocity than Somali piracy, dystopia, and slavery? Mila Kunis in Oz the Great and Powerful.

April 14, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterHayden W.

Pam -- that's true. I just miss her so much. And notice the girl snapping the photo of Michelle in the background. People can't help themselves with celebs.

Hayden - lol!

April 14, 2014 | Registered CommenterNATHANIEL R

That gif. My god. Best Monday present ever.

April 14, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterRahul

Ty: Michelle has been BFF's with Kate and Steven Spielberg for years, they were neighbors in Brentwood and have vacationed together many times, and went to the White House Correspondents dinner together.

I know too much, I'm scaring myself... :-/

Hey Nathaniel, hate to break this to you, but MTV wasn't the only award show you missed. You kinda missed the Hong Kong Film Awards too. It was subtitled Hong Kong Film Awards: The Grandmaster Festival, as that movie swept 12 awards (out of 14 nominations) including Best Actress for Zhang Zi-Yi - most wins for a film in HKFA history. Nick Cheung from Unbeatable beats Tony Leung in Best Actor. He even sang on the stage while accepting the award. Al in all, except the boring The Grandmaster sweep, it was no less entertaining than the MTV movie award, well of course except that Zac Efron part, hee.

April 14, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterPJ

Oh Zac Efron! I need a cold shower.
