Now male nominee Steven Spielberg has weighed in on the issue.

“There’s also a watershed happening right now, slowly, maybe not fast enough, for women directors,” Spielberg told Entertainment Tonight. “I mean you have Patty Jenkins. We have some amazing women that have come forward, you know ‘Mudbound’ and ‘Lady Bird.’ This is a pretty incredible year, and I think you’ll be seeing some nominations. I’m predicting at the Oscars this year for a woman director, if not several.”

While presenting the award for Best Director with Ron Howard on Sunday, Portman said, “Here are all the male nominees” before listing of the men in the category.

The category notably left out Greta Gerwig for directing “Lady Bird,” which won for Best Movie – Musical or Comedy. Gerwig recently won Best Director from the National Society of Film Critics.

Speilberg added to ET that the current climate for women directors is “powerful, a watershed for women, a watershed for men, who will learn to listen or those who have been listening.”

Only one woman has ever won the Best Director award in the Golden Globes’ 75-year history — Barbra Streisand for her 1984 film “Yentl,” which also won Best Picture that year.

The all-male nominees for the Best Director category included winner Guillermo del Toro for “The Shape of Water,” Martin McDonagh for “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri,” Christopher Nolan for “Dunkirk,” Ridley Scott for “All The Money in the World” and Spielberg for “The Post.”

Portman wore black in solidarity with the Time’s Up initiative, which has raised millions to go towards legal fees for survivors of sexual harassment and assault.

E! Boss Shoots Down Catt Sadler’s Pay Inequality Allegation: ‘Lot of Misinformation Out There’ https://www.thewrap.com/catt-sadler-income-inequality-misinformation-jason-kennedy/ https://www.thewrap.com/catt-sadler-income-inequality-misinformation-jason-kennedy/#respond Tue, 09 Jan 2018 21:13:38 +0000 Tony Maglio https://www.thewrap.com/?p=1779739 The E! boss just threw some cold water on former employee Catt Sadler’s claims of income inequality at the cable channel.

“There is a lot of misinformation out there,” Frances Berwick, president of NBCUniversal Cable’s Lifestyle Networks, said Tuesday of the controversy that spilled onto the Golden Globes red carpet on Sunday. “Catt Sadler and Jason Kennedy had different roles and therefore different salaries.”

“Catt was focused on daytime, Jason Kennedy is on prime evening news and the red carpet,” the E! boss continued at the Television Critics Association press tour. “Our employees’ salaries are based on their roles and their expertise, regardless of gender. So we wish Catt well, but I hope that sets the record straight.”

Here’s what Sadler said last month in explaining why she suddenly left E!

“There was a massive disparity in pay between my similarly situated male co-host and myself,” she said. “More recently, when E! reached out to renew and extend my deal, I learned that he [Kennedy] wasn’t just making a little more than I was. In fact, he was making close to double my salary for the past several years.”

At the time, Sadler appeared to be referring to Kennedy, her “E! News” and “E! News Weekend” co-host.

In her statement, Sadler said she and her team repeatedly “asked for what I know I deserve,” but were denied each time. Citing a “close friend and colleague” who started at the network the same time she did, Sadler said “how can I operate with integrity and stay on at E if they’re not willing to pay me the same as him? Or at least come close?”

“How can I accept an offer that shows they do not value my contributions and paralleled dedication all these years? How can I not echo the actions of my heroes and stand for what is right no matter what the cost? How can I remain silent when my rights under the law have been violated?” she continued.

Stars like Jennifer Lawrence, Eva Longoria and Debra Messing have since publicly lent their voices of support to Sadler.

Sadler joined the network in 2010. In addition to “E! News,” she also hosted several of E!’s “Live From the Red Carpet” shows and was one of three hosts on the daytime talk show “Daily Pop,” which launched in May.

‘Three Billboards’ Director Martin McDonagh Blasts Hollywood’s ‘Bland PC Filmmaking’ https://www.thewrap.com/three-billboards-director-martin-mcdonagh-blasts-hollywoods-bland-pc-filmmaking/ https://www.thewrap.com/three-billboards-director-martin-mcdonagh-blasts-hollywoods-bland-pc-filmmaking/#respond Tue, 09 Jan 2018 17:58:20 +0000 Ashley Boucher https://www.thewrap.com/?p=1779353 “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” director Martin McDonagh thinks there’s “too much bland PC filmmaking” in Hollywood right now.

In an interview with Yahoo Movies UK, McDonagh said he’s attracted to pushing his comedy to the limit, and that more filmmakers should do the same.

“There’s something kind of exciting when people are free to speak as they really do in the real world. I think there’s a bit too much bland PC filmmaking going on and you never really want to watch those films twice, so I prefer this kind,” he said.

“It’s knowing where the line is and just going over it,” the director said. “I don’t want to take the pee out of anyone really, but I think everything is up for grabs and if you’re an equal opportunities offender like I am, there’s a joy to it. Also it’s the way people speak when they’re not being the best people that they might hope to be.”

“Three Billboards” brought home four Golden Globe awards Sunday night: Frances McDormand won Best Performance By An Actress in a Motion Picture, Drama; Sam Rockwell won Best Performance by An Actor in a Supporting Role in Any Motion Picture; McDonagh won Best Screenplay and the film took home the night’s coveted Best Drama.

Ivanka Trump Ripped for Praising Oprah’s Globes Speech: ‘Say TimesUp to Your Father’ https://www.thewrap.com/ivanka-trump-ripped-for-belated-praise-of-oprahs-empowering-globes-speech/ https://www.thewrap.com/ivanka-trump-ripped-for-belated-praise-of-oprahs-empowering-globes-speech/#respond Tue, 09 Jan 2018 15:13:55 +0000 Daniel Kohn https://www.thewrap.com/?p=1778915 Ivanka Trump was the latest high-profile woman to praise Oprah Winfrey’s stirring Golden Globes speech, but her Monday evening tweet was met with strong backlash.

Calling Winfrey’s speech that cited the #TimesUp movement “empowering” and “inspiring,” the first daughter’s tweet was met by an onslaught of anger.

“Great! You can make a lofty donation to the Time’s Up Legal Defense Fund that is available to support your father’s accusers,” tweeted actress Alyssa Milano.

While another tweeted, “Say #timesup to your father. Hypocrite.”

Some saw hypocrisy in Ivanka Trump’s praise since her father, President Donald Trump has been accused of sexual harassment and misconduct by 17 women — he has consistently denied the accusations.

Others pointed out the irony of the first daughter’s belated praise for the speech given the talk that Winfrey might consider challenging her father for the presidency in 2020.

A number of celebrity Twitter users skewered Trump, with Alyssa Milano tweeting, “You can make a lofty donation to the Time’s Up Legal Defense Fund that is available to support your father’s accusers,” and Chrissy Teigen chiming in with an “ew go away.” Longtime Trump foe and prolific Twitter user Rosie O’Donnell also responded, tweeting “time is up vanky for u – daddy and jared – oprah knows – so do we … awaken child – now or never.”

Here are some of the reactions that includes the names of Donald Trump’s accusers.

Roseanne Barr: ‘I Would Be a Better President Than Oprah’ — and Maybe Even Trump https://www.thewrap.com/roseanne-barr-i-would-be-a-better-president-than-oprah-and-maybe-even-trump/ https://www.thewrap.com/roseanne-barr-i-would-be-a-better-president-than-oprah-and-maybe-even-trump/#respond Tue, 09 Jan 2018 01:41:28 +0000 Reid Nakamura https://www.thewrap.com/?p=1778583 As an outspoken Donald Trump supporter, Roseanne Barr weighed in on calls for Oprah Winfrey to run for president following her Golden Globes speech on Sunday night.

At the Television Critics Association press tour on Monday, Barr was asked what she thought of the speech and subsequent reports that the media mogul was mulling a 2020 bid for the White House.

At first, the writer-actress hedged, jokingly asking “Roseanne” executive producer Bruce Helford to answer for her and saying, “Of course I love Oprah like everybody else, but I think it was time for us as a country to shake things up and try something else [with Trump].”

When pressed, Barr, herself a former presidential hopeful, said she could do a better job in office than either Oprah or Hollywood’s biggest Bernie Sanders supporter, Susan Sarandon.

“Actually, I think I would be a better president than Oprah and Susan Sarandon,” Barr said. “Possibly even President Trump.”

Barr was repeatedly pressed on her political opinions at the panel for the reboot of her ABC sitcom, with reporters noting that one of the first episodes back reveals that her character, Roseanne Conner, was also a Trump voter.

“I’ve always tried to have [the “Roseanne” show] be a true reflection on the society we live in,” Barr said. “So I feel like half the people voted for Trump and half didn’t, so it’s just realistic.”

Golden Globes: Raising One Last Glass to 20th Century Fox as We Know It https://www.thewrap.com/golden-globes-raising-one-last-glass-to-20th-century-fox-as-we-know-it/ https://www.thewrap.com/golden-globes-raising-one-last-glass-to-20th-century-fox-as-we-know-it/#respond Mon, 08 Jan 2018 23:57:51 +0000 Matt Donnelly https://www.thewrap.com/?p=1777612 Was that the last 20th Century Fox party?

That was the whispered but unavoidable question at Sunday’s Golden Globes after the telecast dissolved into almost a dozen afterparties at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. The Skylight Ballroom atop the building hosted winners and nominees from Fox’s film studio, broadcast network and cable entity FX.

It was a starry and indulgent display of the work the company did this year: Hugh Jackman blowing kisses to producer Amy Pascal, Penelope Cruz posting up with activist Janet Mock, Naomi Campbell and Billie Jean King fighting their way through a throng of Guillermo del Toro fans just to get to the bar.

This is business as usual at industry affairs, but it felt different last night — it felt like a last hurrah thanks to Disney’s recent move to acquire the film and TV content engines from Rupert Murdoch’s media empire.

TheWrap previously reported on widespread anxiety and uncertainty on the West Los Angeles Fox lot, as redundancies could eliminate thousands of jobs by the time the Disney transition is complete. With that kind of inevitability, how do you cut loose and toast the good times?

Winning helps. Fox Searchlight’s “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” swept with Best Motion Picture Drama, Best Actress for Frances McDormand, Best Supporting Actor for Sam Rockwell and Best Screenplay for Martin McDonaugh.

Del Toro won Best Director for “The Shape of Water.” Benj Pasek and Justin Paul took Best Original Song “This Is Me,” from “The Greatest Showman.” Ewan McGregor took Best Actor in a Limited Series for FX’s “Fargo.”

Even the seating arrangements at the party were performative of what Fox has to offer, a smattering of collective taste, smart spending and bold choices. It represented the culture that stands to be lost when swallowed whole by Disney.

Like watching Ryan Murphy hold court with the A-listers who are drawn to him and seduced onto the small screen, such as Penelope Cruz who debuts as his Donatella Versace next week when “American Crime Story” returns.

Fox Television Group CEO Dana Walden was attached to Murphy’s hip, and not for nothing. The super producer’s contract is up in June and he could go anywhere for what would likely be a huge payday. Losing him would be potentially devastating to whatever Fox TV looks like in the coming years.

Then there’s Stacey Snider, who only just started showing us her game as the CEO of 20th Century Fox Film. She succeeded Jim Gianopulos in 2016 in step with the triumphant “Deadpool,” reupped Production President Emma Watts with a new contract and started picking her movies before the Disney deal steamrolled momentum.

Snider told me she was proud of Fox Searchlight and “Showman,” and hoped that all her films including Steven Spielberg’s “The Post” would continue to be a part of the conversation through Oscars.

I complimented her on cancelling a trip to Washington D.C. for the east coast premiere of “The Post,” instead staying with her staff in L.A. to comfort them after the Disney news broke — and embolden them to keep operating with swagger while they still could.

“It’s because I love the people I work with,” she said simply.

Then she bid me goodbye and rejoined her colleagues. Their job last night was to celebrate, even if it’s something like the last time.

Oprah Winfrey 2020? Her Q Score Suggests She Would Win (Exclusive) https://www.thewrap.com/oprah-winfrey-2020-q-score-trump-golden-globes/ https://www.thewrap.com/oprah-winfrey-2020-q-score-trump-golden-globes/#respond Mon, 08 Jan 2018 19:43:06 +0000 Tony Maglio https://www.thewrap.com/?p=1778109 If 2016 proved anything to us, it’s that anyone could be President — so why not Oprah Winfrey in 2020? Her Q Score sure backs up the White House run Hollywood is clamoring for.

Oprah has a 23 Positive Q Score — an industry-accepted measurement of how well-liked a personality is — TheWrap has learned exclusively. That’s four points higher than the average for a performer, and it means 23 percent of polled Americans identified Winfrey as one of their favorite celebrities.

The OWN owner’s awareness level is humongous, at 86 percent. Or at least, it was during Summer 2017, which is the latest-available data set from the Q Scores Company. The group will be updating Winfrey’s stats later this month, with results available at the end of February. The upcoming findings should indicate any changes due to her popular Golden Globes speech Sunday night.

If women show up to vote, Winfrey could be a shoe-in. The former talk-show host’s appeal skews female, scoring a 24 Positive Q Score among women — that’s seven points higher than a 17 average for performers among females.

As Hollywood would probably agree these days, the problem here is men — especially older ones. Winfrey exhibits polarization among fellas 50+, with a Negative Q Score of 32 there. The same measurement drops down to a 22 among women of the same age.

Readers can think of a person’s “Negative Q Score” as the opposite of the Positive one — essentially, 32 percent of men over 50 said Winfrey was among their least-favorite personalities.

Even with that issue, assuming Trump automatically reruns for the 2020 Republican ticket, he’d have his (tiny?) hands full with Winfrey. The last time the Q Scores gang measured Trump was back in January 2015, when he had what company president Henry Schafer called “the typical love-to-hate profile”: 76 percent awareness, a 7 Positive Q Score and a 44 Negative Q Score.

Back then, Trump “was marketing himself [similarly] to the Kardashians, Howard Stern, etc.,” Schafer told TheWrap. “Clearly, Oprah doesn’t market herself that way, hence her more appealing profile.”

Once a celebrity moves into the political world, the Q Scores Company stops measuring them, hence the dated data for the ex-“Apprentice” host. And it also explains why Schafer may stop polling people about Oprah in a few years.

Wiseau told the Los Angeles Times that his message would have been simple: “If a lot of people loved each other, the world would be a better place to live.”

Lastly, he would have wanted to say, “See ‘The Room,’ have fun, and enjoy life. The American Dream is alive, and it’s real.”

The first person James Franco thanked when he got to the microphone to give his acceptance speech for winning Best Actor in a Comedy or Musical was Wiseau, who made and starred in the infamously bad film “The Room,” and whom Franco portrayed in “The Disaster Artist.”

Franco spoke about Wiseau’s inspiration: “I won’t wait for Hollywood, I’ll make my own movie,” Franco quoted Wiseau as saying 19 years ago.

Franco’s speech ended up getting cut off before he could hand the microphone over to Wiseau — but Twitter loved the fact that “The Room” star tried to grab it from Franco. Some were disappointed that Wiseau didn’t get a chance to speak.

Wiseau ended up tweeting his statement.

Golden Globes Show Lands 19 Million Viewers, Down 5 Percent From Last Year https://www.thewrap.com/golden-globes-2018-19-million-viewers/ https://www.thewrap.com/golden-globes-2018-19-million-viewers/#respond Mon, 08 Jan 2018 18:18:58 +0000 Tony Maglio and Jennifer Maas https://www.thewrap.com/?p=1778192 The 2018 Golden Globes totaled 19.0 million total viewers, which was down 5 percent from the prior year. That tally was second-best for the special in a decade.

The Seth Meyers-hosted NBC show drew a 5.0 rating among adults 18-49 on Sunday, according to Nielsen’s fast-official ratings. Jimmy Fallon emceed the event in 2017, which posted a 5.6 demo rating.

The live broadcast is expected to grab NBC a win in total viewers for the night, despite Fox’s high-rated NFL playoff matchup between the Carolina Panthers and New Orleans Saints. In adults 18-49, the 5.0 rating equals the highest primetime rating on the broadcast networks for an entertainment telecast since the Academy Awards last February.

This year’s Globes ended up being the most-watched primetime entertainment show, on broadcast or cable, since the Academy Awards last February (which pulled 32.9 million viewers total). The show also takes the highest primetime rating for an entertainment telecast since the 2017 Oscars.

The awards show quadrupled the network’s non-sports average in the time period compared to last season in the 18-49 demo (5.0 vs. 1.2) and is up 13.2 million people in total viewers.

The arrivals special, which aired from 7-8 posted a 5.5 rating in metered-market households, gaining a 17 percent jump over last year. The 2018 red carpet show is the top “arrivals” special in these markets since 2014. The pre-show hasn’t rated higher since it posted a 5.6 in 2009.

Farrow, who has accused director Woody Allen of sexually abusing her as a child, took to Twitter Sunday morning to discuss the #TIMESUP and #MeToo movements, which were a huge part of Sunday’s Golden Globes. She discussed her open letter in the New York Times in 2014, in which she told her side of the accusations against her adoptive father that stem back to 1992.

The open letter published was after Allen was honored with the Cecil B. DeMille Award, which honors “outstanding contributions to the world of entertainment,” at the 2014 Golden Globes. Allen continues to deny Farrow’s accusations of any wrongdoing, and he has never been charged in the case. Allen did not immediately reply to TheWrap’s request for comment on Monday.

With “his time wasn’t up,” Farrow referenced what became a huge part of this year’s Golden Globes. A response to and show of solidarity with the numerous women who have come forward to report sexual misconduct by powerful men in Hollywood and beyond, #TIMESUP has spawned a legal defense fund for women. Celebrities wore black at the Golden Globes to show their support for the movement, and several brought women’s rights activists as their guests to help push the issue.

But Farrow noted how little effect her own story had on Hollywood in 2014.

This year’s Cecil B. DeMille Award winner was Oprah Winfrey, who used her acceptance speech to discuss the recent widespread accusations of sexual misconduct by men. Winfrey referenced women who have fought and continue to fight for their rights and safety, including Recy Taylor, a Black woman who was raped by six white men in Alabama in 1944, and fought unsuccessfully to bring them to justice.

“…I want all the girls watching here, now, to know that a new day is on the horizon!” Winfrey said during her speech. “And when that new day finally dawns, it will be because of a lot of magnificent women, many of whom are right here in this room tonight, and some pretty phenomenal men, fighting hard to make sure that they become the leaders who take us to the time when nobody ever has to say ‘Me Too’ again.”

Jimmy Kimmel Thanks Seth Meyers for Being Awards Show Host ‘Litmus Test’ Ahead of Oscars https://www.thewrap.com/jimmy-kimmel-thanks-seth-meyers-awards-show-host-litmus-test-ahead-oscars/ https://www.thewrap.com/jimmy-kimmel-thanks-seth-meyers-awards-show-host-litmus-test-ahead-oscars/#respond Mon, 08 Jan 2018 17:33:39 +0000 Reid Nakamura https://www.thewrap.com/?p=1778011 Jimmy Kimmel is set to return as the host of the 2018 Academy Awards, but the late-night host says he’s not sure how he’ll handle the sexual misconduct issue in March.

At least Kimmel can take a few of his cues from Golden Globes host Seth Meyers, who joked about the issue on Sunday night and was largely well received.

“I felt like Seth made a joke that was specifically for me and my wife,” Kimmel said at the Television Critics Association press tour on Monday. “We were sitting on the couch watching it, and we really started laughing. He said his monologue was like sending the first dog into space and see if it came out alive.”

“And I did feel that way. I was like, ‘I have to see what Seth says and how it is received,'” Kimmel said. “I do thank him for being that litmus test.”

But the “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” host said he couldn’t be sure how exactly what he’d talk about at the Oscars, because the show is still a few months out.

“As far as how I will handle it, the problem is that it’s two months from now,” he said. “It’s almost like getting into a hot tub or something. You can’t know what the temperature is until you get there… If you ask me the night before I’ll have a much better answer for you.”

“I’m sure that it’ll be part of the subject matter,” he concluded. “Unless there’s a nuclear weapon heading to Sacramento that night, then we’ll probably go right to that.”

Weinstein Accusers Say They Weren’t Invited to Golden Globes, Call Out ‘Hollywood Fakery’ https://www.thewrap.com/weinstein-accusers-say-they-werent-invited-to-golden-globes-call-out-hollywood-fakery/ https://www.thewrap.com/weinstein-accusers-say-they-werent-invited-to-golden-globes-call-out-hollywood-fakery/#respond Mon, 08 Jan 2018 17:25:47 +0000 Beatrice Verhoeven https://www.thewrap.com/?p=1777930 Hollywood came together in solidarity at Sunday’s Golden Globes to protest sexual misconduct by wearing head-to-toe black — but Rose McGowan called it “Hollywood fakery.”

Actress Asia Argento, herself a Harvey Weinstein accuser, tweeted at McGowan on Sunday: “No one should forget that you were the first one who broke the silence. Anyone who tries to diminish your work is a troll and an enemy of the movement. You gave me the courage to speak out. I am on your side until I die.”

McGowan responded, “And not one of those fancy people wearing black to honor our rapes would have lifted a finger had it not been so. I have no time for Hollywood fakery, but you I love, .@AsiaArgento #RoseArmy.”

Other notable names who have stood up against sexual harassment in Hollywood including Corey Feldman and Rosanna Arquette chimed in saying they hadn’t been invited to the Globes either.

In December, McGowan, a Weinstein accuser who has been at the forefront of the #MeToo movement and speaking out about harassment and abuse in the industry, previously slammed celebrities who wanted to wear black to the annual event.

“Actresses, like Meryl Streep, who happily worked for The Pig Monster, are wearing black @GoldenGlobes in a silent protest,” she said days before the awards gala, referring to Weinstein.

“YOUR SILENCE is THE problem,” McGowan added. “You’ll accept a fake award breathlessly & affect no real change. I despise your hypocrisy. Maybe you should all wear Marchesa,” referencing the fashion label of Weinstein’s estranged wife Georgina Chapman.

At the time, Streep released a statement, the Oscar winner saying she was “hurt to be attacked by” McGowan and reiterated that she didn’t know about Weinstein’s reputation.

Actresses — and many actors — at this year’s Golden Globes wore black to protest sexual assault, abuse and harassment in Hollywood, and to support those who have spoken out about these issues. The move comes after heavyweights like Weinstein, Kevin Spacey, Dustin Hoffman, Louis C.K., Morgan Spurlock, and many more of have been accused of sexual misconduct.

Ryan Seacrest, Kelly Clarkson, Allison Janney, Finn Wolfhard, Rachel Brosnahan, Streep, Michelle Williams and many more donned the color on the carpet.

Ratings: NBC’s Golden Globes Tackled By Fox Football – For Now https://www.thewrap.com/golden-globes-nbc-fox-football-ratings/ https://www.thewrap.com/golden-globes-nbc-fox-football-ratings/#respond Mon, 08 Jan 2018 17:13:05 +0000 Jennifer Maas https://www.thewrap.com/?p=1777962 The one percent rise in early ratings the Golden Globes grabbed on Sunday wasn’t enough to help NBC take home Best Network for the night. No, that award went to Fox, with a little help from an NFL overrun — for now, at least.

As we previously reported, the Golden Globes grew from a 13.3 rating household TV rating in 2017 to a 13.4 for this year’s show, according to Nielsen’s earliest-available TV ratings. While Fox just surpassed it in the later fast-affiliate ratings — thanks to the end of its playoffs showdown between the Carolina Panthers and New Orleans Saints — due to the nature of live television, numbers for both the Globes and the game should be considered subject to change.

Accurate time zone-adjusted fast-official ratings are expected later today.

For now, Fox was first in ratings with a 4.2 rating/14 share in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic and second in total viewers with an average of 12.7 million, according to preliminary numbers. At 7, an NFL overrun posted a 8.6/29 and 28.3 million viewers. At 7:30, the rest of the overrun, combined with the beginning of the network’s postgame show took an 8.5/28 and 28.1 million viewers. At 8, the back half of the show and the start of “The Simpsons” had a 3.4/11 and 9.1 million viewers. At 8:30, the end of sitcom and the start of “Ghosted” combined for a 1.8/6 and 4.3 million viewers. At 9, the back half of “Ghosted” and the beginning of “Family Guy” took a 1.6/5 and 3.5 million viewers. At 9:30, the end of “Family Guy” and the start of “The Last Man on Earth” settled for a 1.1/4 and 2.7 million viewers.

NBC was second in ratings with a 3.7/13 and first in viewers with 14.5 million. At 7, the “2018 Golden Globe Arrivals Special” hit a 2.2/7 and 10 million viewers. Stayed tuned to TheWrap for final Globes numbers.

ABC was third in ratings with a 1.2/4 and fourth in viewers with 4.8 million. Following a repeat, at 8 “America’s Funniest Home Videos” took a 1.4/4 and 6 million viewers. At 9, “Shark Tank” got a 1.3/4 and 4.7 million viewers. At 10, a second episode of “Shark Tank” managed a 1.1/4 and 3.8 million viewers.

CBS was fourth in ratings with a 0.8/3 and third in viewers with 6.9 million. At 7, “60 Minutes” settled for a 0.8/3 and 7.8 million viewers. At 8, “Wisdom of the Crowd” had a 0.7/2 and 5.8 million viewers. At 9, “NCIS: LA” got a 0.9/3 and 7.8 million viewers. At 10, “Madam Secretary” managed a 0.6/2 and 6.1 million viewers.

Telemundo was fifth in ratings with a 0.4/1 and in viewers with 1.1 million.

Univision was sixth in ratings with a 0.3/1 and in viewers with 785,000.

The CW does not broadcast nationally on Sundays.

James Franco Called Out After Golden Globes Win for Once Hitting on a Teen on Instagram https://www.thewrap.com/james-franco-trolled-golden-globes-win-pick-up-teen-on-instagram/ https://www.thewrap.com/james-franco-trolled-golden-globes-win-pick-up-teen-on-instagram/#respond Mon, 08 Jan 2018 16:55:46 +0000 Jennifer Maas https://www.thewrap.com/?p=1777904 James Franco was clearly psyched to win a Golden Globe award on Sunday. But the honor really ticked off some people Twitter, along with “Breakfast Club” star Ally Sheedy.

Franco sported one of the evening’s popular Time’s Up pins — supporting the awards show’s anti-sexual-misconduct movement — while accepting his Globe for Best Actor in a Motion Picture Musical or Comedy for his performance in “The Disaster Artist.” But many viewers, were quick to recall the story of Franco’s attempts to pick up a 17-year-old girl via Instagram in 2014 — a move they found to be in stark contrast to the message on the actor’s lapel.

Franco contacted the underage girl through Instagram after meeting her outside his Broadway show Of Mice and Men in 2014. It was widely reported that Franco offered to rent a room to hang out with the “almost” 18-year-old, who went on to publish their correspondence online.

The actor later went on “Live With Kelly and Michael,” saying he was “embarrassed” after admitting to contacting her, saying that “social media is tricky.” “I used bad judgment,” Franco said.

Sheedy brought up a personal story instead, writing, “James Franco just won. Please never ask me why I left the film/TV business,” the actress wrote in a series of tweets that have since been deleted. Franco directed Sheedy in an Off Broadway production of “The Long Shrift.”

Representatives for Franco and Sheedy did not immediately respond to TheWrap’s request for comment.

NBC Deletes Tweet Calling Oprah ‘Future President’ https://www.thewrap.com/nbc-deletes-tweet-calling-oprah-future-president/ https://www.thewrap.com/nbc-deletes-tweet-calling-oprah-future-president/#respond Mon, 08 Jan 2018 16:17:48 +0000 Jon Levine https://www.thewrap.com/?p=1777899 NBC has deleted a controversial Tweet launched during Sunday’s Golden Globe awards which seemingly called for Oprah Winfrey “our future president.”

In an official explanation, the network put them blame on a “third party agency,” they had used for live tweeting the broadcast.

“The tweet was sent out by a third party agency for NBC Entertainment in real time during the live broadcast,” said NBC. “It is in reference to a joke made during the opening monologue and not meant to be a political statement. We have since removed the tweet.”

The original post raised more than a few eyebrows online even during a very eventful ceremony on Sunday.

“Nothing but respect for OUR future president,” it said.

The tweet apparently was issued in response to a joke from Seth Meyers’ monologue from the evening, but talk of an Oprah presidency became very real after the star accepted the Cecil B. DeMille lifetime achievement award. Winfrey is the first black woman to be given the prestigious honor.

In her much-discussed speech, Oprah praised the #MeToo movement, lauded the strides of women and minorities in entertainment and even defended the media. Though she has repeatedly ruled out a run for office, her longtime partner, Stedman Graham, caused a frenzy of new speculation after telling the L.A. Times she “would absolutely do it.”

President Trump himself has often lauded Winfrey as a possible contender for national office. Trump even speculated decades ago that if he ever pursued the White House, he would consider tapping Oprah as his vice president.

“I love Oprah. Oprah would always be my first choice,” he told Larry King in 1999.

Golden Globes: ‘Get Out’ Biggest Snub, James Franco’s Win Greatest Surprise, Says Fandango Survey (Exclusive) https://www.thewrap.com/golden-globes-get-out-biggest-snub-james-franco-surprise/ https://www.thewrap.com/golden-globes-get-out-biggest-snub-james-franco-surprise/#respond Mon, 08 Jan 2018 16:02:39 +0000 Beatrice Verhoeven https://www.thewrap.com/?p=1777877 “Get Out” going home with no awards at the 2018 Golden Globes was the biggest snub of the night, while James Franco’s win for “The Disaster Artist” was its greatest surprise, according to a new Fandango survey.

Fandango surveyed more than 1,000 film fans who watched the award show on Jan. 7.

Following the “Get Out” shutout, the biggest omissions for fans were Christopher Nolan (26 percent), Meryl Streep (13 percent) and “The Shape of Water” (10 percent) not winning for Best Director, Best Actress and Best Picture, respectively.

“Call Me by Your Name” was another snub in all categories, and fans also cited Willem Dafoe (“The Florida Project”) as a shutout.

Pleasant surprises for fans included “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” winning Best Picture, Drama, “Lady Bird” winning Best Picture, Comedy, and Allison Janney, Sam Rockwell and Frances McDormand each winning awards for their roles.

“For many moviegoers, it’s a happy surprise to see Globe Best Picture Awards go to ‘Three Billboards’ and ‘Lady Bird,’ two films centered on strong female protagonists,” Fandango Managing Editor Erik Davis told TheWrap. “The big wins should help give these two small films needed momentum as we head towards the Oscars on March 4.  At the same time, the top snubs include virtual shutouts for films like ‘Get Out,’ ‘Dunkirk,’ ‘Call Me By Your Name’ and ‘The Post.’

Davis added, “I think the biggest shocker was Willem Dafoe getting passed over for his authentic and heartfelt performance in ‘The Florida Project,’ but it’s clear that Sam Rockwell’s win was part of the general adoration for ‘Three Billboards,’ which also took home wins for Best Actress and Best Screenplay. Overall, it was great to see so many talented, deserving artists take home awards for the first time in their careers.”

While it seemed like wishful thinking by those caught up in the moment, a Winfrey-fronted ticket may not be as far-fetched as you may think.

Winfrey’s longtime partner, Stedman Graham, wouldn’t rule out a future run. “It’s up to the people,” Graham told the L.A. Times. “She would absolutely do it.”

Eva Longoria, Keith Urban and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson all gushed over Winfrey’s speech as well — and many other Hollywood stars took to Twitter to voice their enthusiasm for the entertainment icon to enter politics.

Following the speech, the #Oprah2020 quickly became a talking point on Twitter.

“A very stable genius,” one user wrote with a photo of Winfrey giving her speech while mocking President Trump’s derided tweets from over the weekend.

People inspired by the speech reacted quickly and were hopeful that the first African-American woman to win the Cecil B. DeMille Award would take her talents to Washington, D.C.

Sunday’s special received a 13.4 rating household TV rating and 21 share from Nielsen.

Last year’s awards show, which was hosted by Jimmy Fallon of “The Tonight Show” — Seth’s normal late-night lead-in — received a 13.3 household TV rating from Nielsen. That was up 2 percent from 2016’s 13.0, meaning this marks the third year in a row that the Globes have grown in metered-market households.

The January 2017 version had been the second-best metered market showing for the special in a decade (since 2007’s 16.0), but now Meyers’ event has knocked Fallon out as the new first runner-up.

One percent may seem small, but any increase for awards shows are difficult to come by these days. So whether or not readers and critics think Meyers did a good job, he proved a good choice as master of ceremonies.

Sunday’s big winners were “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” and “Big Little Lies.” See the full list of winners and nominees here.

Fast-national Nielsen numbers for the entire broadcast will be available in a few hours, with final figures expected later today.

The British star won Best Actor in a Drama Motion Picture in his role as Winston Churchill in the film. In his acceptance speech, he praised the other filmmakers in the room.

“Winston Churchill said, ‘My taste is very simple. I am easily satisfied with the very best.’ And I am surrounded by the very best,” Oldman said during the speech Sunday night

The Golden Globes saw celebrities dressed in black in solidarity with women as part of the #TIMESUP movement, a response to numerous women coming forward to report sexual misconduct by powerful men in Hollywood and beyond.

“I’m very proud of ‘Darkest Hour,'” Oldman continued. “It illustrates that words and actions can change the world and boy of boy does it need some changing.”

But back in 2014, Oldman was a little less complimentary of the Golden Globes. During an extensive interview with Playboy, in which he sounded off on topics including political correctness (“I think it’s like, take a f—ing joke — get over it”), Hollywood and racism (“At the Oscars, if you didn’t vote for ’12 Years a Slave’ you were a racist”), he had some choice words for the Globes in particular.

He called the Golden Globes “a meaningless event” in the interview, “… It’s 90 nobodies having a wank,” he said.

“What people don’t realize is that you need to work at being a celebrity,” Oldman went on to say. “I’m not talking about movies. I mean the other side of it. You have to campaign. It’s a whole other part of your career, and I wish I could have navigated it a bit better. I may have an Oscar now, had I … I know it certainly doesn’t mean anything to win a Golden Globe, that’s for sure.”

Thanks to his outstanding work in “Darkest Hour,” Oldman can now count himself among the nobodies.

But we caught a few you didn’t see onstage or onscreen.

A lot happened during the commercial breaks, from celebs live-streaming their own star-struck moments to some of the night’s biggest winners partying hard. Here are the five best things you didn’t see on TV.

Sarah Paulson’s Instagram Story

While people swarmed the bar for cocktails and champagne, “American Horror Story” star Sarah Paulson casually talked to fans online. “There’s Michael Keaton,” she said as she live-streamed Instagram on her phone in the off-camera lounge.

“Big f—ing mint”

Ewan McGregor bit off more than he could chew — literally. Halfway through his backstage interview after winning for Best Actor in a Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television for his work in “Fargo,” it wasn’t that McGregor couldn’t find the words; he genuinely couldn’t speak.

“I took this huge mint,” he told the crowd. “I’m stuck with this big f—ing mint.”

Pixar Dodges Tough Questions 

The filmmakers behind Disney Pixar’s “Coco” got an uncomfortable question backstage — “How has work been in wake of division head John Lasseter’s self-imposed leave of absence last year over misconduct?”

“We want to focus on being in solidarity with tonight’s movement,” producer Darla K. Anderson said, referring to the #TIMESUP movement.

“We have been taking steps and will continue to make roads making it an even better place for people to create art,” director Lee Unkrich added.

Rowdiest Cast?

That would be the stars of “The Handmaid’s Tale.” After the massive group led by Elizabeth Moss (who won a Globe for Best Actress in a Television Series – Drama), Ann Dowd and Samira Wiley finished with the car wash of press backstage, they disappeared behind a production curtain and erupted into screams of joy, celebrating their win for Best TV Series – Drama.

Speaking of Handmaids — Amazon Shade

“The Handmaid’s Tale” showrunner Bruce Miller was reminded that Amazon passed on his adaptation of Margaret Atwood’s seminal book. One reporter wondered if there was schadenfreude over the current sexual harassment scandals that has rocked Jeff Bezos’ content studio.

Miller simply said it was none of his business.

Mikey Glazer also contributed to this report.

Oprah Winfrey used her acceptance speech at the Golden Globes to convey a powerful message to women: Time’s up.

Winfrey received the Cecil B. DeMille Award at the 2018 Golden Globes, which honors “outstanding contributions to the world of entertainment.” In her speech, Winfrey referenced the #TIMESUP movement, which has defined the award show this year. The movement is meant to push for changes for women’s rights in the wake of numerous women coming forward to report sexual misconduct by powerful men in Hollywood and beyond.

Here’s Winfrey’s speech in full:

In 1964, I was a little girl sitting on the linoleum floor of my mother’s house in Milwaukee, watching Anne Bancroft present the Oscar for Best Actor at the 36th Academy Awards. She opened the envelope and said five words that literally made history — “The winner is Sidney Poitier.”

Up to the stage came the most elegant man I ever remembered. His tie was white, his skin was black — and he was being celebrated. I’d never seen a Black man being selected and celebrated like that. I tried many, many times to explain what a moment like that means to a little girl, a kid watching from the cheap seats as my mom came through the door bone-tired from cleaning other people’s houses. But all I can do is quote and say that the explanation in Sidney’s performance in “Lilies of the Field,” Amen, Amen. Amen, Amen.

In 1982, Sidney received the Cecil B. DeMille Award right here at the Golden Globes, and it is not lost on me that at this moment, there are some little girls watching as I become the first Black woman to be given this same award.

It is an honor — it is an honor and it is a privilege to share the evening with all of them and also with the incredible men and women who have inspired me, who challenged me, who sustained me and made my journey to this stage possible. Dennis Swanson, who took a chance on me for A.M. Chicago. Quincy Jones, who saw me on the show and said to Steven Spielberg, “She’s Sophia in ‘The Color Purple.'” Gayle, who’s been the very definition of a friend, and Stedman, who’s been my rock.

I want to thank the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. We know the press is under siege these days. We also know it’s the insatiable dedication to uncovering the absolute truth that keeps us from turning a blind eye to corruption and to injustice. To tyrants and victims, and secrets and lies. I want to say that I value the press more than ever before as we try to navigate these complicated times, which brings me to this.

What I know for sure is that speaking your truth is the most powerful tool we all have. And I’m especially proud and inspired by all the women who have felt strong enough and empowered enough to speak up and share their personal stories. Each of us in this room are celebrated because of the stories that we tell, and this year we became the story. But it’s not just a story affecting the entertainment industry. It’s one that transcends any culture, geography, race, religion, politics, or workplace.

So I want tonight to express gratitude to all the women who have endured years of abuse and assault because they, like my mother, had children to feed and bills to pay and dreams to pursue. They’re the women whose names we’ll never know. They are domestic workers and farm workers. They are working in factories and they work in restaurants and they’re in academia, engineering, medicine, and science. They’re part of the world of tech and politics and business. They’re our athletes in the Olympics and they’re our soldiers in the military.

There’s someone else, Recy Taylor, a name I know and I think you should know, too. In 1944, Recy Taylor was a young wife and mother walking home from a church service she’d attended in Abbeville, Alabama, when she was abducted by six armed white men, raped, and left blindfolded by the side of the road coming home from church.

They threatened to kill her if she ever told anyone, but her story was reported to the NAACP where a young worker by the name of Rosa Parks became the lead investigator on her case. And together, they sought justice.

But justice wasn’t an option in the era of Jim Crow. The men who tried to destroy her were never persecuted. Recy Taylor died 10 days ago, just shy of her 98th birthday. She lived, as we all have lived, too many years in a culture broken by brutally powerful men. For too long, women have not been heard or believed if they dare speak the truth to the power of those men. But their time is up. Their time is up. Their time is up.

And I just hope — I just hope that Recy Taylor died knowing that her truth, like the truth of so many other women who were tormented in those years, and even now tormented, goes marching on.

It was somewhere in Rosa Parks’ heart almost 11 years later, when she made the decision to stay seated on that bus in Montgomery, and it’s here with every woman who chooses to say, “Me Too.” And every man — every man who chooses to listen.

In my career, what I’ve always tried my best to do, whether on television or through film, is to say something about how men and women really behave. To say we experience shame, how we love and how we rage, how we fail, how we retreat, persevere, and how we overcome. I’ve interviewed and portrayed people who’ve withstood some of the ugliest things life can throw at you, but the one quality all of them seem to share is an ability to maintain hope for a brighter morning, even during our darkest nights.

So I want all the girls watching here, now, to know that a new day is on the horizon! And when that new day finally dawns, it will be because of a lot of magnificent women, many of whom are right here in this room tonight, and some pretty phenomenal men, fighting hard to make sure that they become the leaders who take us to the time when nobody ever has to say “Me Too” again. Thank you.

Golden Globes Have Historic Night, But Not Because of Who Won (Analysis) https://www.thewrap.com/golde-globes-analysis-black-clad-statement-of-purpose/ https://www.thewrap.com/golde-globes-analysis-black-clad-statement-of-purpose/#respond Mon, 08 Jan 2018 04:41:39 +0000 Steve Pond https://www.thewrap.com/?p=1777317 One of the winning films, “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri,” is about the fury of a woman who demands justice. Another, “Lady Bird,” is about a teenage girl desperate to grow into who she wants to be.  Two of the winning television shows, “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” and “Big Little Lies,” are about and are driven by women.

But while those wins were emblematic of a show that championed female voices from start to finish, they were not the real story of the 75th Golden Globe Awards. After all, the opinions of about 90 journalists for foreign publications won’t set the tone for the next eight weeks of awards season, and won’t make Oscar voters think any more of “Three Billboards” or any less of “The Shape of Water.”

Who won has rarely been less significant to a Golden Globes show, and what was said has rarely been more significant.

Sunday’s show was a black-clad statement of purpose that didn’t really have much to do with the Hollywood Foreign Press Association or the statuettes that were handed out on the stage of the Beverly Hilton.

The resonance from the Globes will be because it was the show that made it clear that Hollywood — particularly women in Hollywood — are demanding fundamental changes. On Sunday, that insistence took the form of dozens of black dresses, a Seth Meyers monologue that savaged Hollywood’s status quo and a parade of winners who used their time onstage to champion female empowerment, culminating in an Oprah Winfrey speech that rocked the room.

Accepting her best-actress award for “Three Billboards,” Frances McDormand pronounced herself honored “to be a part of a tectonic shift in our industry’s power structure.”

Of course, most of what happens on the Golden Globes stage is ephemeral; most years, we have a hard time remembering who won or what was said even a few weeks later. The real challenge of this show will come in taking the trappings of protest – the black dresses, the buttons and ribbons, the calls to arms – and effecting a change in the culture, not a saber-rattling couple of hours on a Sunday night.

And while many of the big winners on Sunday were shows and films with women as their driving forces — “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel,” “Big Little Lies,” “Lady Bird” — it’ll take a significant amount of reshuffling in the executive suites before we’ll reach anything like equality in the number of men and women who come to the stage to pick up trophies.

Still, the show managed to celebrate artistry in the shadow of the sexual-misconduct allegations that have rocked Hollywood. As Chris Rock did at the Oscars two years ago during the height of the #OscarsSoWhite controversy, Meyers made the elephant in the room the entire focus of his monologue; it didn’t always work, but it was probably the best way to handle a tricky situation.

(His comment about other upcoming hosts watching him like he’s the first dog shot into space was spot-on.)

As for the voters and their choices, it was largely business as usual for the HFPA, which often celebrates favorites (“Big Little Lies,” “The Handmaid’s Tale,” Saoirse Ronan, Gary Oldman) but likes to get to new TV shows before the Emmys can (“The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel”) and sometimes shows a quirky side.

The quirks first came in the supporting actor and actress film categories, where voters liked their movies tough: Winners Sam Rockwell (“Three Billboards”) and Allison Janney (“I, Tonya”) played characters with more sharp edges and disagreeable traits than the favored performers in their categories, Willem Dafoe (“The Florida Project”) and Laurie Metcalf (“Lady Bird”).

Guillermo del Toro won his expected best-director award for “The Shape of Water,” but in the end his film had to settle for director and score wins while the darker “Three Billboards” turned out to be the one voters really loved. And on the musical-or-comedy side, Jordan Peele’s “Get Out” was shut out while Greta Gerwig’s “Lady Bird” won the big prize.

But why are we talking about prizes? That’s not what the Golden Globes were about, and everybody knows it.

While Meyers could have been expected to address the sexual-misconduct scandal and subsequent backlash during the opener to this year’s ceremony, Meyers was especially cutting with his zingers, welcoming the audience with, “Good evening, ladies and remaining gentlemen” and declaring, “Time to address the elephant not in the room: Harvey Weinstein isn’t in the room … he’ll be back in 20 years when he’s the first person booed in the in memoriam.”

WORST: Winona Ryder’s head-scratching L’Oreal commercial. While not officially part of the ceremony, Ryder’s ad — which started out as empowering before morphing into a message about how anything can be salvaged, including bad hair — worked many viewers into a lather, judging by the reaction on social media.

BEST: Carol Burnett’s turn as a presenter. Appearing onstage to a standing ovation with Jennifer Aniston, comedy legend Burnett proved that she still has her chops, telling Aniston that she’s “happy that you’re coming back to television, because ‘Will and Grace’ was one of my favorite shows” and chiding Aniston as “kinky” for wanting to pull Burnett’s ear — a signature move of Burnett’s on her classic sketch-comedy show.

WORST: Kelly Clarkson and Keith Urban dueting the line, “And the Golden Globe goes to…” while presenting for Best Original Song struck a bum note for some viewers, not least of all in TheWrap newsroom.

BEST: James Franco inviting “The Room” filmmaker Tommy Wiseau onstage while accepting his award for “The Disaster Artist,” which is based on Wiseau’s cult curiosity.

WORST: Franco not letting Wiseau speak onstage, even though Wiseau made a grab for Franco’s microphone and everything.

BEST: The marathon tribute to Oprah Winfrey, who received the Cecil B. DeMille Award — at least if you needed a bathroom break halfway through the show and haven’t been particularly regular lately.

BEST: While also lengthy, Winfrey’s acceptance speech put the “O” in “standing O.”

WORST: Alexander Skarsgard, who won Best Supporting Actor — TV Award, and neglected to address the abuse epidemic in Hollywood during his acceptance speech, despite playing an abuser on “Big Little Lies.”

BEST: Natalie Portman’s sassy call-out of gender inequality in the entertainment industry. Presenting for Best Director along with Ron Howard, Portman announced, “And here are the all-male nominees.” (Runner-up: The award’s winner, Guillermo del Toro, who said that he was “hoping to wipe my nose with this” after pulling out his acceptance speech, and refused to be played off, saying, “Lower the music .. . it’s taken me 25 years, give me a minute.”)

Greta Gerwig, Whose ‘Lady Bird’ Won Best Picture, Wasn’t Even Nominated in Director Category at Golden Globes https://www.thewrap.com/greta-gerwig-golden-globes-director-snub-best-motion-picture-musical-or-comedy/ https://www.thewrap.com/greta-gerwig-golden-globes-director-snub-best-motion-picture-musical-or-comedy/#respond Mon, 08 Jan 2018 04:24:15 +0000 Jennifer Maas https://www.thewrap.com/?p=1777298 There’s good news and bad news, “Lady Bird” fans. The good: Your new favorite movie took home one of the biggest awards at the 2018 Golden Globes. The bad: Its director, Greta Gerwig didn’t even get a nod in the director category. Ouch.

On Sunday, Gerwig’s critically-acclaimed comedy-drama grabbed a statue for Best Motion Picture, Musical Or Comedy, and she, who has been praised for her solo directorial debut time and time again since it bowed last fall, accepted it graciously with her team. While the victory was clearly a sweet one (and also surprising, with “The Disaster Artist” and “Get Out” deemed frontrunners) it only underlined the fact Gerwig didn’t arrive Sunday with a director nomination.

The director’s category was full of only male nominees, with the award ultimately going to Guillermo del Toro for “The Shape of Water.” Martin McDonagh was nominated for “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri,” Christopher Nolan for “Dunkirk,” Ridley Scott for “All The Money in the World” and Steven Spielberg for “The Post.”

Gerwig was seen nodding in agreement when Barbra Streisand, who is the only woman to win a Golden Globe award in any directing category ever, announced as she presented an award: “Time’s up,” Streisand arguing it’s past time for women directors to be recognized.

“Lady Bird” stars Saoirse Ronan, Laurie Metcalf, Tracy Letts, Lucas Hedges, Timothee Chalamet and Beanie Feldstein. Gerwig wrote and directed the film about a 17-year-old girl coming of age in Sacramento, California. The film bowed on Nov. 3.

The movie started trending hard on Twitter after its win.

See the best reactions to the victory (and Gerwig’s snub) below.

And she also told the story of Recy Taylor, a Civil Rights hero many had never heard of before.

Winfrey, who was honored with the Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s Cecil B. DeMille Award for “outstanding contributions to the world of entertainment,” recognized women in Hollywood and beyond who are speaking up. Winfrey then turned to Taylor, who stood up to racism in the era of Jim Crow to seek justice after she was raped by six white men in 1944.

No charges were ever brought against the six men who raped her — two all-white, all-male grand juries declined to indict them. This was after one of the men confessed to the crime, as the New York Times reports.

The case was covered in the 2010 book “At the Dark End of the Street: Black Women, Rape, and Resistance — a New History of the Civil Rights Movement From Rosa Parks to the Rise of Black Power,” bringing it renewed attention. That resulted in the Alabama Legislature issuing an official apology to Taylor, calling the state’s failure to prosecute “morally abhorrent and repugnant.”

Her story was also told in the documentary “The Rape of Recy Taylor,” which was released last month. Taylor died in Abbeville in December at the age of 97.

Winfrey’s speech was the culmination of a Golden Globes in which celebrities dressed in black in solidarity with the #TimesUp movement, a response to the many women who have recently come forward to report sexual misconduct by men in Hollywood and beyond.

Here are Winfrey’s comments about Taylor:

There’s someone else, Recy Taylor, a name I know and I think you should know, too. In 1944, Recy Taylor was a young wife and mother walking home from a church service she’d attended in Abbeville, Alabama, when she was abducted by six armed white men, raped, and left blindfolded by the side of the road coming home from church.

They threatened to kill her if she ever told anyone, but her story was reported to the NAACP where a young worker by the name of Rosa Parks became the lead investigator on her case. And together, they sought justice.

But justice wasn’t an option in the era of Jim Crow. The men who tried to destroy her were never persecuted. Recy Taylor died ten days ago, just shy of her 98th birthday. She lived, as we all have lived, too many years in a culture broken by brutally powerful men. For too long, women have not been heard or believed if they dare speak the truth to the power of those men. But their time is up.

And I just hope — I just hope that Recy Taylor died knowing that her truth, like the truth of so many other women who were tormented in those years, and even now tormented, goes marching on.

Streaming continued its takeover of Hollywood on Sunday night, with industry giants taking home the top two TV awards at the 75th Golden Globes.

Amazon’s “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” grabbed the “Best Television Series — Musical or Comedy” prize, while Hulu’s “The Handmaid’s Tale” won for Best Television Series — Drama. It was Hulu’s first win in the drama category. Elisabeth Moss also won the top award for best dramatic performance in a TV series for “Handmaid’s.”

Netflix wasn’t left out in the cold, either, with Aziz Ansari winning the Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series — Musical or Comedy for “Master of None.”

“Here are all the male nominees,” she said as Ron Howard began to list the nominees. The category notably left out Greta Gerwig for directing “Lady Bird,” which won for Best Movie – Musical or Comedy. Gerwig recently won Best Director from the National Society of Film Critics.

Winner Guillermo del Toro did not specifically acknowledge Portman’s comment, but as the music swelled to play him offstage, he asked for it to stop — and then took time to praise “a few fantastic women” who had worked on the film.

Only one woman has ever won the award in the awards show’s 75-year history — Barbra Streisand for her 1984 film “Yentl,” which also won Best Picture that year.

The all-male nominees for the Best Director category included winner del Toro for “The Shape of Water,” Martin McDonagh for “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri,” Christopher Nolan for “Dunkirk,” Ridley Scott for “All The Money in the World” and Steven Spielberg for “The Post.”

Portman wore black in solidarity with the Time’s Up initiative, which has raised millions to go towards legal fees for survivors of sexual harassment and assault.

‘Coco’ Producer Ducks Question About John Lasseter https://www.thewrap.com/coco-producer-dodges-question-about-john-lasseter/ https://www.thewrap.com/coco-producer-dodges-question-about-john-lasseter/#respond Mon, 08 Jan 2018 03:20:06 +0000 Matt Donnelly https://www.thewrap.com/?p=1777227 At a Golden Globe Awards gala focused on calling out sexual harassment, the filmmakers behind “Coco” weren’t eager to talk about the accusations against Pixar chief John Lasseter.
The producer, director and codirector of Best Animated Film “Coco,” from Disney’s Pixar, were asked backstage about their studio president John  Lasseter taking a self-imposed leave of absence in wake of misconduct.
Journalists in the press room asked about the progress of a pledge to improve Pixar as a workplace.
Producer Darla K. Anderson demurred.
“We want to focus on being in solidarity with tonight’s movement,” Anderson said, referring to the #TimesUp movement that saw the whole of the Beverly Hilton International Ballroom wear black in silent protest of Hollywood’s current toxic climate.
“We have been taking steps and will continue to make roads making it an even better place for people to create art,” director Lee Unkrich added.
Unkrich, alongside co-director Adrian Molina, then applauded the diverse voices the company has embraced.
Lasseter announced in November that he would take a six-month sabbatical from Disney and the Pixar studio he has led for decades following reports of sexual misconduct.
“It’s been brought to my attention that I have made some of you feel disrespected or uncomfortable. That was never my intent. Collectively, you mean the world to me, and I deeply apologize if I have let you down,” he said in a statement at the time. “I especially want to apologize to anyone who has ever been on the receiving end of an unwanted hug or any other gesture they felt crossed the line in any way, shape, or form. No matter how benign my intent, everyone has the right to set their own boundaries and have them respected.”
Lasseter is best known as one of the founders of Pixar and directed films such as “Toy Story,” “A Bug’s Life,” “Toy Story 2,” “Cars” and “Cars 2.” He’s won two Academy Awards — one for Best Animated Short Film (“Tin Toy”) and one Special Achievement Award for “Toy Story.”
A spokesperson for Disney told TheWrap at the time, “We are committed to maintaining an environment in which all employees are respected and empowered to do their best work. We appreciate John’s candor and sincere apology and fully support his sabbatical.”

Surprise: Sam Rockwell, Best Supporting Actor for “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.”

Rockwell winning for his role in Martin McDonagh’s drama is a clear upset over other nominees, Christopher Plummer, Armie Hammer and Willem Dafoe

Snub: Willem Dafoe, Best Best Supporting Actor for “The Florida Project.”

Dafoe was a clear frontrunner for his role in “The Florida Project,” and Armie Hammer and Christopher Plummer were favorites too, but Sam Rockwell managed to upset them.

Surprise: Rachel Brosnahan, Best Actress in a TV Series Musical or Comedy for “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.”

Pamela Adlon and Issa Rae were snubbed in this category due to Brosnahan’s win for a relatively new show.

Snub: Tommy Wiseau not being allowed to speak on stage

James Franco called Tommy Wiseau on stage while accepting his award for Best Actor Musical or Comedy, and when Wiseau gunned for the mic, Franco pushed him away. The crowd anxiously waited for Wiseau to speak, but he never did.

Surprise: “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” wins Best Screenply

Sure, the race was tight between Greta Gerwig’s “Lady Bird” and McDonagh’s “Three Billboards” — but many thought the award would go to Gerwig due to the fact that it’s more heartfelt and that the movie has become the best reviewed film in Rotten Tomatoes history.

Snub: Robert de Niro, Best Actor in a Limited Series or Motion Picture Made For Television for “The Wizard of Lies.”

Many predicted De Niro to win in this category, or Kyle MacLachlan for “Twin Peaks.” But instead, Ewan McGregor won the award for “Fargo.”

Surprise: Aziz Ansari, Best Actor in a Television Series – Musical or Comedy for “Master of None.”

Anthony Anderson for “black-ish” is always a strong contender, and voters apparently really liked the revived “Will and Grace,” so Eric McCormack was a frontrunner. TheWrap’s Steve Pond predicted Kevin Bacon would win for “I Love Dick,” but in the end, Ansari took home the prize.

Surprise: “Lady Bird” wins Best Motion Picture — Musical or Comedy.

“Lady Bird,” “The Disaster Artist” and “Get Out” were sure frontrunners, but many had thought “Get Out” would win due to its social criticism (although the HFPA received criticism for accepting it as a comedy). “Lady Bird” is also a surprising win given that director Greta Gerwig wasn’t even nominated in the Best Director category.

Surprise: "Lady Bird" wins Best Motion Picture -- Musical or Comedy 

 

"Lady Bird," "The Disaster Artist" and "Get Out" were sure frontrunners, but many had thought "Get Out" would win due to its social criticism (although the HFPA received criticism for accepting it as a comedy). "Lady Bird" is also a surprising win given that director Greta Gerwig wasn't even nominated in the Best Director category.

New York Times Calls Rita Moreno Norman Lear’s Guest, Lear Calls Them Out https://www.thewrap.com/new-york-times-calls-rita-moreno-norman-lears-guest-lear-calls-them-out/ https://www.thewrap.com/new-york-times-calls-rita-moreno-norman-lears-guest-lear-calls-them-out/#respond Mon, 08 Jan 2018 02:48:30 +0000 Brian Welk https://www.thewrap.com/?p=1777056 Not cool New York Times.

In the flurry of getting out Golden Globes red carpet photos, the New York Times captioned a photo with TV legend Norman Lear, “Norman Lear and a guest.” The only problem is that Lear’s “guest” is Rita Moreno, who has a career spanning 70 years and is one of 12 people to have won an EGOT, an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony award. She also won a Golden Globe in 1962 for “West Side Story” while we’re at it.

And Lear noticed, tweeting back at the Times with his own, amended caption.

Thankfully, the Times has since fixed the caption to properly attribute them both.

Lear and Moreno, who are 95 and 86 respectively, played the part of America’s grandparents and rode onto the red carpet on a scooter, not without a little trouble.

Moreno currently stars in a remake of Lear’s “One Day at a Time,” and Lear was recently recognized at the Kennedy Center Honors.

People Kept Being Stunned by Oprah at the Golden Globes https://www.thewrap.com/oprah-speeches-golden-globes/ https://www.thewrap.com/oprah-speeches-golden-globes/#respond Mon, 08 Jan 2018 02:35:26 +0000 Phil Hornshaw https://www.thewrap.com/?p=1776884 Oprah Winfrey is receiving the Cecil B. DeMille Award at the 2018 Golden Globes, becoming the first African-American woman to receive the award. That means Oprah is sitting right up front at the Golden Globes — and a lot of stars are star-struck.

That shouldn’t be too surprising, given that the Hollywood Foreign Pres Association gives out the Cecil B. DeMile Award to honor people who have made “an incredible impact on the world of entertainment.”

Seth Meyers was first to acknowledge Oprah, bringing her up during his opening monologue. He joked that Cecil B. DeMille would be honored that Oprah is winning the award named for him. He also suggested, as others have before him, that Oprah should run for president.

“Oprah, while I have you, in 2011 I told some jokes about our current president at the White House Correspondents Dinner — jokes about how he was unqualified to be president, and some say that night convinced him to run,” Meyers said. “And if that’s true I want to say: Oprah, you will never be president! You do not have what it takes to be president.”

Rachel Brosnan was the first award winner to acknowledge Oprah when she got on stage. Brosnahan took home the Golden Globe for Best Actress in a Television Series, Comedy or Musical for “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel,” and kicked off her acceptance speech with “Hi, Oprah!”

Later, Sterling K. Brown started his acceptance speech with a bit of reverence for Winfrey. Winning the Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Drama TV Series for his role in the ABC show “This is Us,” Brown started his acceptance speech by looking down into the audience and just saying, “Oprah.”

Reese Witherspoon presented Winfrey’s Cecil B. DeMille Award and spent the speech talking about how great hanging out with Oprah was while the pair worked on their upcoming film, “A Wrinkle in Time.”

There are a lot of people known on a first-name basis, but there’s only one person whose name is a verb, an adjective and a feeling, and that is Oprah,” Witherspoon said. “I got to work with Oprah on our movie “a wrinkle in time” where we spent four hours in the makeup trailer almost offer single day. If you can find a way to be stuck in a small space with Oprah for four hours, do it. It’s like going to Wharton Business School combined with a spiritual retreat, all in one.”
Oprah’s acceptance speech was about as powerful as anyone could have hoped. Culminating the night’s ongoing focus on women and the #TIMESUP movement, Oprah delivered a speech about uplifting women and working together.
“What I know for sure is that speaking your truth is the most powerful tool we all have,” she said. “And I’m especially proud and inspired by all the women who have felt strong enough and empowered enough to speak up and share their personal stories. Each of us in this room are celebrated because of the stories that we tell, and this year we became the story. But it’s not just a story affecting the entertainment industry. It’s one that transcends any culture, geography, race, religion, politics, or workplace.
“So I want tonight to express gratitude to all the women who have endured years of abuse and assault because they, like my mother, had children to feed and bills to pay and dreams to pursue. They’re the women whose names we’ll never know. They are domestic workers and farm workers. They are working in factories and they work in restaurants and they’re in academia, engineering, medicine, and science. They’re part of the world of tech and politics and business. They’re our athletes in the Olympics and they’re our soldiers in the military.”

The first person James Franco thanked when he got to the microphone to give his acceptance speech for winning Best Actor in a Comedy or Musical was Wiseau, who made and starred in the infamously bad film “The Room,” and whom Franco portrayed in “The Disaster Artist.”

Franco spoke about Wiseau’s inspiration: “I won’t wait for Hollywood, I’ll make my own movie,” Franco quoted Wiseau as saying 19 years ago. 

“It’s a story of friendship,” Franco said of cult favorite “The Room,” on which his “The Disaster Artist” is based. “This year, I’ve learned from all my friends and collaborators.” The older Franco brother also thanked his younger sibling Dave, who also appeared in the film. “When I went to NYU, I always said I wanted my own Cohen brother someone to collaborate with,” Franco said. Now, he realized that “I have my own Franco brother.”

Franco’s speech ended up getting cut off before he could hand the microphone over to Wiseau — but Twitter loved the fact that “The Room” star tried to grab it from Franco. Some were disappointed that Wiseau didn’t get a chance to speak.

“James Franco stopping Tommy Wiseau from talking into a live mic during the has robbed us of the best moment in entertainment that 2018 could have possibly offered,” one Twitter user said.

“Tommy Wiseau trying to steal the microphone during James Franco’s acceptance speech is my favorite moment of 2018 so far,” another said.

“James Franco inviting Tommy Wiseau onstage was great. But then not letting Tommy talk, not so great,” added another. “Somehow Tommy can’t even catch a break while apparently winning.”

An empowering ad starring Ryder aired during the 2018 Golden Globes on Sunday. Well, it started out as empowering and then it morphed into a message about how anything can be salvaged, including bad hair.

In the clip, the “Stranger Things” star (who was nominated for a Globe in 2017 for her role as Joyce on the Duffer Brothers’ Netflix series) is seen walking around a dressing room in a long, black evening gown. She runs her fingers through her hair as she waits nervously before leaving for the stage.

Then she leaves to walk out into the limelight — and you find out her big “comeback” wasn’t her own, but belongs to her stylish ‘do.

“Everyone loves a comeback,” flashes across the screen. “Damaged hair deserves one too.”

Wow.

The general response on Twitter was “WTF?” — along with a heavy helping of sarcasm. Oh, and some people cried.

“Did this L’Oréal commercial just compare Winona Ryder’s career to damaged hair?” one user wrote. “The commercial about damaged hair deserving a comeback as personified by Winona Ryder’s acting career. Chills. Tears,” another tweeted. “Wait did I just cry at a Winona Ryder shampoo commercial? #GoldenGlobes,” another wrote.

Reps for Ryder and L’Oreal did not respond to TheWrap’s request for comment on the reaction to the ad.

Watch the bizarre commercial (and see the best reactions to it) below.

Golden Globes: Blanca Blanco Tells Us Why She Didn’t Wear Black https://www.thewrap.com/blanca-blanco-wears-red-golden-globes/ https://www.thewrap.com/blanca-blanco-wears-red-golden-globes/#respond Mon, 08 Jan 2018 02:21:41 +0000 Sean Burch https://www.thewrap.com/?p=1776815 Blanca Blanco didn’t get the “negra negro” memo — but the actress who wore red to the Golden Globes told TheWrap she still supports the #TimesUp and #MeToo movements.

The actress — whose name translates to “white white” in English — showed up to the 75th Golden Globes in a stunning red dress that normally would’ve been given two thumbs up. (And for those who aren’t fluent in Spanish — or able to use Google Translate — “negra negro” means “black black” in Spanish.) But with nearly all of Hollywood’s stars decked out in all-black to support the #TimesUp and #MeToo movements, Blanco’s red dress stood out.

“I love red. Wearing red does not mean I am against the #TimesUp movement,” Blanco texted to TheWrap. “I applaud and stand by the courageous actresses that continue to break the circle of abuse through their actions and their style choice. It is one of many factors leading women to a safer place because of their status in the acting world. I am excited about the ‘Times Up’ movement because true change is long overdue.”

If you missed it, you can check out her look below.

Blanca Blanco at the Golden Globes… in red

And if you’re suddenly interested in Blanco’s work, she’s starred in “Showgirls 2: Penny’s From Heaven,” and “Fake News,” which came out last year.

Blanco wasn’t the only one who didn’t follow the all-black memo, though. Model Barbara Meier showed up in a floral-inspired dress, and Meher Tatna, president of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, wore a red outfit that reflected her Indian heritage. She said onstage that she supported women who have spoken out.

The Twitter fashion police didn’t let the women’s “egregious error” go, either.

As CNN’s S. Mitra Kalita pointed out on Twitter, red carries special importance in India — it represents Durga, a fierce goddess.

Maybe assuming that women that didn’t wear black don’t care about sexual misconduct is a dumb idea.

Tatna wore a bright red ensemble to the red carpet and during her speech at the ceremony, although actresses at this year’s event pledged they would be wearing head-to-toe black to protest sexual assault, abuse and harassment in Hollywood, and to support those who have spoken out about these issues.

According to an individual with knowledge, “while the president [of the HFPA] stands with and supports Time’s Up, she wore the dress that she chose with her mother. As part of her Indian culture, it’s customary to wear a festive color during a celebration — in this case being the 75th anniversary.” According to S. Mitra Kalita, VP of Programming at CNN, Tatna “was born in India where this red IS our basic black.”

The decision to wear black comes after heavyweights like Harvey Weinstein, Kevin Spacey, Dustin Hoffman, Louis C.K., Morgan Spurlock, and many more of have been accused of sexual misconduct.

Ryan Seacrest, Kelly Clarkson, Allison Janney, Finn Wolfhard, Rachel Brosnahan, Meryl Streep, Michelle Williams and more donned the color on the carpet. Well, pretty much everyone wore black, except for Tatna and actress Blanca Blanco, who donned a spiffy red dress as well.

Along with the black outfits, people were wearing pins created by Time’s Up, the coalition behind the statement of wearing all black. Around 300 women in the industry, including Reese Witherspoon, Gal Gadot and Shonda Rhimes, stood by the initiative. Kerry Washington told the Los Angeles Times that the alliance was discussing to boycott the Golden Globes but eventually decided against it to support the nominated peers. Then, the decision was made to wear all black.

“Wearing black is an opportunity to talk about all the other things that we’re doing,” Washington told the Times. “We’re saying that we are three-dimensional, fully realized human beings as women. We are participants in this entertainment industry, and we have something to say.”

Representatives for the HFPA and Tatna have not yet responded to TheWrap’s request for comment.

Speaking with NBC’s Al Roker during the network’s red carpet coverage of the awards show, Washington fielded a question about why women hadn’t boycotted the Golden Globes as part of the #TimesUp movement. Washington responded by saying that women who are victims of sexual assault and harassment shouldn’t also be punished by having to sit out the awards show.

“We shouldn’t have to sit out the night,” Washington told Roker. “We shouldn’t have to give up our seat at the table because of bad behavior that wasn’t ours.”

Washington, the star of ABC’s “Scandal” and a Golden Globes presenter, wore black to the show, along with nearly everyone else attending the Golden Globes. The wardrobe choice was a show of solidarity with the #TimesUp and #MeToo movements. Both are responses to the huge numbers of women coming forward in Hollywood and beyond to accuse powerful men of sexual harassment and abuse, including heavyweights like Harvey Weinstein, Kevin Spacey, Dustin Hoffman, Louis C.K., and Morgan Spurlock.

Earlier this week, Washington also fielded the question of a boycott from the Los Angeles Times.

“Wearing black is an opportunity to talk about all the other things that we’re doing,” Washington told the Times. “We’re saying that we are three-dimensional, fully realized human beings as women. We are participants in this entertainment industry, and we have something to say.”

The red carpet interviews ahead of the Golden Globes were largely focused on discussions of #TimesUp issues like safe workplaces and equal pay for women. Many celebrities also brought activists to the Golden Globes to spread greater awareness of issues affecting women across the country and around the world.

During her acceptance speech at the Golden Globes for Best Supporting Actress in a Limited Series or Movie Made for Television for her work in “Big Little Lies,” Kidman kicked off with a line, “First cab off the rank,” which might’ve thrown some of the show’s American viewers for a loop.

The line is an Australian expression meaning, the first person to do, or take advantage, of something. Literally, it’s a taxi in a line of other cabs departing first, but in this case, Kidman used it as an opportunity to be the first (of what will for sure be many) of the evening to address the #MeToo and #TIMESUP movement.

“I do believe we can elicit change through the stories we tell and how we tell them,” Kidman said.

Kidman also paid tribute to her husband Keith Urban during the speech, and several on Twitter felt it was a great way to kick off the ceremony.

Twitter did take some guesses at what Kidman meant by “first cab off the rank,” so maybe now that she’s won she can sit back and relax.

Kidman’s “Big Little Lies” co-star Laura Dern also had some thoughts about #MeToo and #TIMESUP while walking the red carpet. Dern said on Instagram that she is “holding our mothers and grandmothers and all brave women who taught us about Voice” by wearing black on the red carpet.

“It’s time for us to make a difference, and everyone can make a difference,” she added.

Dern brought along activist Monica Ramirez, who said, “When we learned about what was happening in Hollywood, our members felt very strongly they wanted to send a message … that they are not alone … Part of our work is to fight for gender parity along all lines.”

Entertainment while on its red carpet show over not paying ex-host Catt Sadler equally to her male co-host.

“We support gender equity and equal pay,” Longoria said at the end of her interview with her “Big Little Lies” costars Reese Witherspoon and Nicole Kidman. “And we hope that E! follows that lead with Catt as well. We stand with you, Catt.”

E! host Ryan Seacrest then chimed in with his support of Longoria’s statement: “I love Catt. We love her.”

Sadler quit the network after she said she discovered “a massive disparity in pay between my similarly situated male co-host and myself” and could not reach an agreement with the network for equitable pay.

At the beginning of E!’s “Live From the Red Carpet” special ahead of Sunday’s Golden Globe Awards, “Will and Grace” star Debra Messing shouted out Sadler, saying: “I was so shocked to hear that E! doesn’t believe in paying their female co-hosts the same as their male co-hosts. I miss Catt Sadler. So we stand with her. That’s something that can change tomorrow, you know. We want people to start having this conversation that women are just as valuable as men.”

The vast majority of stars at the Golden Globes wore black in solidarity with the #TimesUp movement, and social issues dominated the chatter on the red carpet, no surprise after a year in which scandal after scandal rocked men in Hollywood, exposing the long-festering male-dominated culture in a way it had never been exposed before.

Golden Globes: Seth Meyers’ 10 Best Jokes (Video) https://www.thewrap.com/golden-globes-seth-meyers-best-jokes-video/ https://www.thewrap.com/golden-globes-seth-meyers-best-jokes-video/#respond Mon, 08 Jan 2018 01:35:26 +0000 Jennifer Maas https://www.thewrap.com/?p=1776282

Seth Meyers hosts NBC’s “Late Night” every week, but on Sunday he got the chance to rule an even bigger stage when he hosted the 2018 Golden Globes.

Meyers had the task of hosting the show during a very, very serious time in Hollywood, as more and more sexual misconduct accusations continue to pour out each the week. Now that’s not an easy feat, but the host made it work and actually got many a laugh out of the crowd during his opening monologue.

The host walked the very fine line between making awkward jokes about Harvey Weinstein, Kevin Spacey and more men who have taken advantage of women in Hollywood and actually putting a group at ease.

Here are the best jokes from Meyers’ opening monologue, which was made in front of an audience that has been working hard to support women in the industry during a very trying time.

1. Meyers opened his monologue with probably the best one-liner the crowd will hear all night: “Good evening ladies and remaining gentleman!”

2. Meyers took took aim at how long it’s taken to even begin to drive sexual misconduct out of the industry: “It’s 2018. Marijuana is finally allowed and sexual harassment finally isn’t, it’s gonna be a good year!”

3. The host reminded the audience of how tonight will, hopefully, be full of only good news about the male species: “For the male nominees here tonight this is the first time in three months it won’t be terrifying to hear your name read out loud. ‘Did you hear about Willem Dafoe?’ ‘Oh god no!’ He was nominated, don’t do that!'”

4. When talking about why a woman isn’t hosting during the year of the #MeToo movement, after the accusations about what Weinstein did to his victims in hotels: “They tried to get a woman to host this show, they really did. They said, ‘Hey, how’d you like to come and be judged by some of the most powerful people in Hollywood?’ And they said, ‘Hm, where is it?’ And they said, ‘It’s at a hotel.’ Long story short, I’m your host tonight.”

5. Meyers joked about his role as host not really being that important and how important Trump thinks he is: “If it’s any consolation I’m a man with absolutely no power in Hollywood. I’m not even the most powerful Seth in the room tonight. [The camera cuts to Seth Rogen]. Hey, remember when he was the guy making trouble with North Korea?”

6. The host teased that Trump hates the the Hollywood Foreign Press Association more than almost anyone else: “We’re here tonight courtesy of the Hollywood Foreign Press —  a string of three words that could not be better designed to infuriate our president. Hollywood. Foreign. Press. The only name that could make his angrier is the Hillary Mexico Salad Association.”

7. On the fact that Weinstein will not be missed tonight: “Well I think it’s time to address the elephant not in the room. Harvey Weinstein isn’t here tonight because, well, I’ve heard he’s crazy and difficult to work with. But don’t worry, he’ll be back in 20 years when he’s the first person ever booed during the in memoriam.” [The audience groans]. “It’ll sound like that.”

8. On the recent ousting of Spacey following the misconduct accusations posed against him: “They’re gonna do another season of ‘House of Cards.’ Is Christopher Plummer available for that too? I hope he can do a Southern accent. Cause Kevin Spacey sure couldn’t. Oh is that too mean? To Kevin Spacey?”

9. On the likelihood “The Post” will sweep the Globes: “‘The Post’ is a movie directed by Steven Spielberg and starring Tom Hanks and Meryl Streep [statue is brought out] No, no not yet. We have to wait.”

10. On nepotism in Hollywood: “But everyone in this room knows that Hollywood is so much more than that. Most of the jobs on film sets are American Dream jobs. Those people aren’t there thanks to their rich dad. Except for that one PA. Every film set has at least one super connected PA who is always late and you ask, ‘What the hell his deal is — oh that’s Jeremy Paramount.’

Host Asks Issa Rae What She’d Call Her Memoir – But She Already Wrote One https://www.thewrap.com/golden-globes-e-host-asks-issa-rae-memoir/ https://www.thewrap.com/golden-globes-e-host-asks-issa-rae-memoir/#respond Mon, 08 Jan 2018 01:13:13 +0000 Phil Hornshaw https://www.thewrap.com/?p=1776590 E! Host Guiliana Rancic asked “Insecure” creator Issa Rae what she’d title her memoir during an interview on “Live from the Red Carpet” at the Golden Globes. Trouble is, Issa Rae already wrote a best-selling memoir.

“I’ve got to ask you, you have been so busy lately, you really have so much going on,” Rancic said to Rae during a red carpet interview. “A lot of the work you do is somewhat autobiographical. If you were to write a memoir, an autobiography, what would the name be?”

Rae’s book “The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl” was published in 2015. She deftly answered the question about what she’d title her book, while noting she had already written one.

“I think my next one would be called ‘Where Do I Go From Here? What Do I Do?'” Rae joked. “And then it would just be blank pages for people to fill it out, and I’d read it.”

Rae is nominated for the Golden Globe for Best Actress in a Musical Comedy for the second year in a row for her work on “Insecure.” The show is partially based on Rae’s experiences and on her YouTube series, also called “The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl.”
