PHOENIXVILLE, PA — It's no secret that an upcoming HBO show featuring Kate Winslet has been filming around southeastern Pennsylvania for weeks. But on Thursday night, a bit of Hollywood came right into town on Bridge Street. The main drag was closed between Church Street and Wheatland Street from 8 p.m. to 1 a.m. as HBO crews worked on the upcoming special limited series, "Mare of Easttown." There were also parking restrictions in place on numerous nearby streets, leading to headaches for some residents.Until now, many of "Mare of Easttown's" filming locations that became public knowledge were, well, less public. Filming took place at a vacant Kmart in Coatesville earlier in the fall, 6ABC reported. Winslet and co-star Evan Peters had also been spotted filming near Don's Deli in Boothwyn, Delaware County, Fox29 reports.But the Bridge Street closure, which lasted for five hours, could not be easily played off. There were notifications issued by the borough and police earlier this … [Read more...] about Bridge St Closed As Kate Winslet HBO Show Filmed In Phoenixville

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’?
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?
