Oscar doubles- trivia on all the two-timers

"Winslet could easily wins a second one in the right project/role.Think about how close she comes for Steve Jobs. The other one is Viola Davis in Lead.I think everyone in Hollywood would vote if she is nomed again."-Patrick

"Still mystified why Jodie and Jessica won two and then … television (Jessica) or nothing much else (Jodie)." -Faye

Linkside Out

All the news stories we didn't get to and/or articles we like with a wee slant toward the stage this morning...itching to see a show again.

Guardianon the homophobic charges against the MPAA.That über obnoxious organization has struck again.Prideis the second gay movie this year without sex scenes or nudity to be slapped with an R rating.
/FilmThe Twilight Sagamay well be back after some short films.When I first heard this news I groaned and rolled my eyes but then I read the plan and it's sort of a support young female filmmakers thing so it sounds kind of cool,actually.Pit that Twilight is so obnoxious
The Playlistranks all 35 of David Fincher's music videos.I used to be so obsessed with him because of Madonna.It's possible that I already linked this?I don't know.But their rankings are fairly good.


Vulturesays it's been an amazing year for animation.We just haven't realized it yet.It's all those hard to find foreign toons,it is
Rope of Siliconis doing a Best Movies series and looks back at David Fincher'sSe7en.That would probably be on my 100 movies list,too
Cinephilia and Beyondlooks at Bob Fosse's masterpiece (one of 'em)All That Jazz
My New Plaid Pantsbookmarked!Jason tells us about a Montgomery Clift documentary that I didn't even know about
VarietyJane Fonda and Viola Davis are charitable people.They look great together at an annual Rape Foundation brunch

Netflix,the Disrupter
New York Timeson theCrouching Tigersequel Netflix / IMAX deal
CHUDNetflix going into the business of Adam Sandler movies
Varietywonders what Netflix's motives our with their recent feature film announcements

Imelda Staunton rehearsing.Photo by Johan PerrsonOn StageandFilm Interest
Broadway WorldImelda Staunton is in theaters now in Pride (and she's delightful in it) but she's also returning to the stage.She's in rehearsals for that mammoth role of Mama Rose in a London production of Gypsy.See photo left.
The Hairpinwonderful personal essay on seeing Lindsay Lohan's stage debut inSpeed the Plow
NYC TheaterInteresting.The Laura Pels Theater on 46th street will be doing a stripped down production of Into the Woods while the movie plays in theaters.December 18th through March 2015
Theater ManiaAudra McDonald might do a film musical!!!She's rumored to be involved in the stage to screen transfer of Michael John Lachiusa'sHello Again.If only someone would push hisWild Partymusical to the screen
PlaybillEwan MacGregor and Maggie Gyllenhaal just made their Broadway debuts inThe Real Thing
VarietyNormally movies that become stage musicals are semi-recent hits.But next Spring Broadway will getDoctor Zhivago,once a super-sized smash movie hit from 1965.The song score combines talent from two fine musicals (The Secret GardenandGrey Gardens) so I'm excited.
Theater ManiaDavid Burtka (NPH's other half) will be doing a cabaret show at my favorite cabaret spot directed by Neil Patrick Harris.I imagine this is the type of thing that people will judge harshly just hearing about it like "connections!"but I've seen Burtka in two stage productions and he's very talented

Three hot & short exit videos to wrap

1.We'll start with the best one.Making a Marie Antoinette style dress out of Sofia Coppolla's Marie Antoinette script.Love this.

2.Here's the first teaser forInside Out,Pixar's 2015 release.And Pixar would like to remind you that they made it and that they made all those other movies you love to.BTW they were made by Pixar and did I mention that Pixar made this?

3.Inherent Vice's trailer which you've probably seen.We would have done aYes No Maybe Soon this one except that theNew York Film Festivalis in full swing which will render it immediately disposable since there'll be a review this weekend.The voiceover in this trailer reminds me of Annaleigh Ashford (fromMasters of Sex) but she's not in the movie.I wonder who the voice belongs to?

I think I read that Joanna Newsom is narrating Inherent Vice and has a role in it as well.

October 3,2014 | Unregistered CommenterHannes

The voice belongs to Joanna Newsom,a folk singer who's making her film debut with this movie.She's known for her pip-squeaky singing voice and it appears that her speaking voice isn't that much different.

October 3,2014 | Unregistered CommenterJames C.

It's the reigning and all time queen of my iPod Joanna Newsom.Fighting the juvenile urge to say this will be my favorite PTA solely because she's involved in it.

GBF,the cutesy-est tamest little teen comedy which was technically released this year,was also rated R.

October 3,2014 | Unregistered CommenterJS

That "Inherent Vice"trailer worries me.It feels both trendy and anonymous,and looks like so many other movies - particularly like another in a long line of Coen Bros imitations.I know it's a short clip,but it looks like something any number of other people could have directed,although any number of people might have thought better of asking Joaquin Phoenix to do comedy.

October 3,2014 | Unregistered CommenterDave

What's up with the MPAA and gay-themed films.In comparison,here in Québec,both Pride and Love Is Strange are rated G,though Pride has the "not recommended for young children"added to the G.

October 3,2014 | Unregistered CommenterBill_the_Bear

I would kill to the see that Lindsay Lohan play for some reason....Still rooting for her,but at this point I think a comeback will never happen.

October 3,2014 | Unregistered CommenterDavid

Looking at the list of all the music videos directed by Fincher I can't help thinking that music kind of sucks these days.You hear a good song every six months or so.

Imelda Staunton seems like a marvelous choice for Mama Rose.I'm totally into her this week.

October 3,2014 | Unregistered CommenterPeggy Sue

TheInherent Vicetrailer is not cut by Paul Thomas Anderson.

October 3,2014 | Unregistered Commenter3rtful

Why didn't NPH or his fella get a shot at Into the Woods because they are not Depp level movie stars or even Pine level,big shame.

October 3,2014 | Unregistered Commentermark

This is what the director of GBF,Darren Stein,apparently said:

"I always thought of G.B.F.as a PG-13 movie,but we were given an R "For Sexual References"while not having a single F-bomb,hint of nudity or violence in the film.Perhaps the ratings box should more accurately read "For Homosexual References"or "Too Many Scenes of Gay Teens Kissing."I look forward to a world where queer teens can express their humor and desire in a sweet,fun teen film that doesn't get tagged with a cautionary R."

I did see the movie (I think it's still on Netflix?) and it's almost so innocuous it could be PG.

October 3,2014 | Unregistered CommenterRyan

Is it bad that I knew that the Inside Out trailer was purposefully manipulating my emotions,and I let it happen anyway?Damn,what a filmography.I'm glad to see Pixar going back to original concepts and shaking themselves out of this sequel/franchise nonsense.And obviously,a huge delight to hear Amy Poehler - who is everywhere,but somehow manages to still be criminally underrated.*pointed stare at the TV Academy*

October 3,2014 | Unregistered CommenterJonny

Has Hello Again ever even made it to Broadway?I've listened to the CD of the cast recording many times and I don't think the music is all that.Does anyone else know it?

I saw the version of Dr.Zhivago which played in San Diego about 8 years ago.I'm sure that the new latest version will have gone through a lot of changes since then.I recall that the music was pretty good,although it was not as tuneful or consistent as The Secret Garden.

The Lara that they cast in San Diego was particularly dull,sort of the anti-Julie Christie.I mean you have to believe that this woman is worth giving up everything.I wonder who they will cast on Broadway?Probably Kelli O'Hara,but just because you're blonde,doesn't mean you're right for the part.

October 3,2014 | Unregistered CommenterDave in Alamitos Beach

I think Kelli O'Hara would be amazing as Lara (she's really quite perfect in everything),but next spring she'll be busy giving a (hopefully Tony-winning) sure-to-be-wonderful performance in "The King and I"revival.

October 3,2014 | Unregistered CommenterJoe

Dave (not in Alamitos Beach): What's best about Pynchon is...hard to crack,but very little of that is really IN Inherent Vice.Every novel before that imparted that Pynchon had a very "Vertigo comic"sensibility.It still has his TONE (a kind of observational dark comic thriller),sure,but the limitless and wild universe of sky ships in the 1890s,learned English dogs,militant film collectives and other such things?Gone.I've fallen out of touch with Pynchon (too grounded these days,with a messed up "game in development hell"joke in Bleeding Edge as the last straw with that book),but I'd have hoped for a V.,Vineland or Mason and Dixon adaptation before I hoped for one of Inherent Vice.

October 3,2014 | Unregistered CommenterVolvagia

I am an absolute freak when it comes to loving Doctor Zhivago.So this better be good.I wonder if they will be using any of Maurice Jarre's iconic music in this new production.

Casting Lara is gonna be tricky.Julie Christie is an insanely tough act to follow.Impossible actually.

Ramin Karimloo would be perfect for Yuri.
