She also earned raves for starring opposite Sam Rockwell in Sam Shepard’s “Fool for Love,” first at the Williamstown … [Read more...] about ‘Richard Jewell’ Scene Stealer Nina Arianda on Why Sam Rockwell ‘Is a Goddamn American Treasure’
He’s known for screaming so loudly that the blood vessels in his head might explode—but it’s getting harder and harder to hear Alex Jones. Facebook and Apple's iTunes took down huge parts of the far-right conspiracy theorist’s massive internet presence Monday. Shortly after Apple confirmed it has removed the vast majority of the loudmouth shock jock’s podcasts from iTunes, Facebook published a blog post explaining that it had “unpublished” four of the Infowars host’s most active pages for violating its hate-speech rules. If Jones doesn’t appeal the rulings, the pages will be removed permanently. While CEO Mark Zuckerberg has been under fire for allowing fake news to be spread far and wide on his social network, the company’s blog made clear that Jones’ multiple false conspiracy theories were not the reason his pages were targeted—it was for violent, racist, and transphobic hate speech. “Last week, we removed … [Read more...] about Facebook and Apple iTunes Ban Alex Jones as Internet Giants Silence Infowars
It began with a dignified red carpet—well, as dignified as those things possibly get—and continued through to host Seth Meyers’s blistering, almost impossibly successful monologue and the overwhelming tenor of the night’s speeches, chief among them Oprah Winfrey’s galvanizing sermon about our current cultural moment. Hands were wrung with enough friction to ignite another round of California fires over how an award show, particularly one as typically frivolous as the Golden Globes, would play against the surging #MeToo movement and Time’s Up initiative. Those talking points dominated Sunday night’s telecast, to great effect. For once, it was an award show that didn’t feel like pointless masturbation, celebrating movies you haven’t seen and the expensive gowns worn by the people who made them. It felt like a cultural moment, actually necessary. For the most part, the nearly three-and-a-half hour-long show felt rewarding, too, … [Read more...] about The #MeToo Golden Globes Hint at Hollywood’s Enlightened Future. Will It Last?
The Golden Globes are known for being random, for both clarifying in some respects the awards race by being the first major show (though the voting body has little overlap with those who vote for the Oscars) and for throwing a total wrench into it. Those Globes choices are supposed to be as unpredictable and silly as the boozed-up show itself! At least, historically speaking. So it’s alternately surprising and refreshing that there’s little to rage about Monday morning with the ultimate slate of nominees, which were led on the film side by The Shape of Water (7 nods), The Post (6), and Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (6), and on the TV end by Big Little Lies (6 nods) and Feud: Bette and Joan (4). Oh, there’s still enough to be huffy about. But hardly on the level of Burlesque or The Tourist being a Best Picture nominee, and barely a “Who?” showing up in the TV races. (Those merit a reaction more like “interesting…” instead.) … [Read more...] about Golden Globes Snubs and Surprises: No Female Directors? Where’s ‘Wonder Woman’?
