KRISTEN STEWART WINS NEW YORK FILM CRITICS CIRCLE AWARD FOR 'BEST SUPPORTING ACTRESS'



IFC Films






Kristen Stewart was bestowed the New York Film Critics Circle Best Supporting Actress Award for her role in Oliver Assayas' Clouds of Sils Maria Wednesday morning.

Although Stewart won the Best Supporting Actress C├ęsar (French Oscar), pundits believed Stewart's performance would not continue to resonate in time for the Oscar nominations since the film opened over a year ago at the Cannes Film Festival.

However, the tough New York film critics brushed aside any naysayers and may have cleared the pathway for a Best Supporting Actress Oscar nomination for Stewart.

The NYFCC is known to be the "principled alternative to the Oscars honoring esthetic merit in a forum that is immune to commercial and political pressures." The Academy Award nominations are usually in correlation to the NYFCC winners.  Meaning, as history dictates, Stewart should be nominated.

The NYFCC awards will be handed out during a ceremony held on January 4, 2016.  



NYFCC 2015 Winners:

Best First Film: Son of Saul
Best Foreign Film: Timbuktu
Best Supporting Actress: Kristen Stewart, Clouds of Sils Maria
Best Supporting Actor: Mark Rylance, Bridge of Spies
Best Cinematography: Edward Lachman, Carol
Best Screenplay: Carol
Best Nonfiction Film: In Jackson Heights

Universal



Universal Pictures revealed the new title, plot and character posters for 'The Huntsman' now known as The Huntsman Winter's War.

It appears that Universal may have to combat some trolling references to Frozen and Captain America: The Winter Soldier being tossed around due to Chris Hemsworth's Marvel connection and Emily Blunts movie poster (below) which appear to give a wink and a nod in name and appearance to the successful Disney films.

HAPPY 40TH BIRTHDAY CHARLIZE!




Celebs Attend the Premiere of DIRECTV's 'Dark Places'
Charlize Theron at 'Dark Places premiere.



Charlize Theron is celebrating a birthday milestone by turning the big 4-0 today and looking as beautiful as ever.


Charlize has been on a whirlwind this year in film with the release of the surprising summer blockbuster hit Mad Max: Fury Road. If anyone followed the history of the making of this film would find it a miracle not only for it to be a blockbuster but for it even be released. It was reported that she may return as Furiosa in Mad Max: The Wasteland; however she has denied having knowledge of the sequel according to reports. 


Her film Dark Places released today which she produced and stars with her Mad Max co-star Nicholas Hoult. Charlize also has many films under development as producer/actor according to IMDb along with four films releasing next year which includes her return as Ravenna in The Huntsman.


In June, Charlize got her wax figure placed in Madame Tussauds in Hollywood.

KRISTEN STEWART SHOWS OFF TATS ON THE LATE LATE SHOW WITH JAMES CORDEN




CBS



Kristen Stewart makes her first appearance on the Late Late Show with new host James Corden promoting her film 'Clouds of Sils Maria' currently in theaters.

Stewart was joined on the couch by Ben McKenzie (Gotham) and musician Mark Ronson (Uptown Funk).


Corden initially introduced his guests from their dressing rooms where Stewart showed off her skirt and yes, her patented "bare feet."  


Corden congratulated Stewart for being the first American to win the French Oscar for CoSM which led to talking about her tattoo. 

Stewart revealed that the tattoo she was fake while filming CoSM but she eventually missed having it. Stewart admitted that she "rebelled" from getting tattoos because her whole family had them.  She said she wanted to be "pure."  


After filming, she asked her mother to contact her tattoo artist and the rest is history. See the entire exchange in the video below. 


Stewart discussed her upcoming Woody Allen film, fan encounters and working for 18 hours on her recent birthday.

EMILY BLUNT SHOWS OFF HER LIP SYNCING SKILLS IN A DEVIL WEARS PRADA BATTLE ROYALE WITH ANNE HATHAWAY




Anne Hathaway performing 'Wrecking Ball' on left while 
Emily Blunt performs 'A Piece of My Heart'.


If you haven't seen Spike TV's Lip Sync Battle, it is a must see on Thursday nights at 10p ET/PT/9C hosted by actor and rap legend LL Cool J.  Two stars lip sync to two songs and the winner receives the championship belt. 

In its third episode, The Huntsman's Emily Blunt takes on her 'Devil Wears Prada' nemesis Anne Hathaway in one of the funniest moments on television. 


Blunt opened with Blackstreet's 'No Diggity' and finished in full costume and stage show with Janet Joplin's 'A Piece of My Heart'.







Hathway threw the first blow with her rendition of Mary J. Blige's 'Love' and scored a knock out with her masterful rendition of the Miley Cyrus hit 'Wrecking Ball'. Blunt bowed to Hathaway's amazing performance that left the audience screaming her Hathaway's name while admitting that her "balls just got wrecked." 

Hathaway has a bit of experience lip syncing when she joined Kristen Stewart in the Jenny Lewis video 'Just One of the Boys'.   


Blunt was later used as a prop when one of Stewart's 'Twilight' castmates, Anna Kendrick, stole Blunt from her battle opponent who is Blunt's husband actor/director John Krasinksi when she performed One Direction's 'Steal My Girl' on the forth episode. Check out that really funny battle which has a surprise appearance by Jennifer Lopez as well as all the battles here.

CBS SUNDAY MORNING'S MOVIE CRITIC DAVID EDELSTEIN PRAISES KRISTEN STEWART'S MOVIE CAREER





Kristen Stewart: Official Cesar Portrait




It seems like Kristen Stewart winning the prestigious French Oscar also known as the Cesar has had the top film critics taking notice or at least speaking up to let the world know that they knew she was this talented all along.

New York Film Critic David Edelstein does not dole out endorsements like candy.  So when he took to the CBS Sunday Morning show today to rain praises on her amazing career, hopefully it will make people understand that it is more to Stewart's career than 'Twilight'.


Edelstein opens by talking about critics reviews of her performance in the 'Twilight' films but then says, "Laugh all you want, I always thought that Stewart was a really good good actress." "You just have to accept that she never, ever wants to be caught acting." 

He goes into her background in film from her growing up on film sets with her parents and didn't have the typical "kid actor's look at me vibe."

Take a look at the video below as Edelstein takes a profound look at Stewart and her career leading up to her huge win. 

The prestigious Sunday Morning show has been on air since 1979 and part of CBS News.

Cesar Award portrait


Happy Birthday to Kristen Stewart who turns 25-years old today!

Our Snow White has been full steam ahead with her career being as hot as ever lately. The films are not huge blockbusters; however, she has been receiving consistent critical acclaim for her performance in them.

After having several films released last year, Kristen began 2015 with an Oscar campaign for her work in 'Still Alice' which her co-star Julianne Moore won the Oscar for Best Lead Actress. 

Not to be left behind, Kristen made history winning Best Supporting Actress for her role in 'Clouds of Sils Maria' by receiving the prestigious French Oscar a.k.a Cesar Award 30 years after first American actress was nominated.

Although she said she was taking the year off, she has been accepting offers for projects left and right.  No rest for the weary.

Legendary writer/director Woody Allen offered her a role in his next untitled film where she teams up again with her 'Adventureland/American Ultra' co-star Jesse Eisenberg. 

She just completed filming the Kelly Reichardt untitled project with Laura Dern and Michelle Williams and is gearing up to film the two-time Oscar winning director Ang Lee's 'Billy Lynn's Halftime Walk'. 




Nicholas Hoult & Kristen Stewart in 'Equals'



She has 'Anesthesia', 'Equals' (co-starring Nicholas Hoult) and 'American Ultra' being released this year along with 'Clouds of Sils Maria' finally hitting American theaters this Friday in limited release. 

Her charitable work continued when she participated in Maria Shriver's Alzhiemer's awareness campaign and then returned as Karl Lagerfeld's muse for his new handbag and eye wear campaign for Chanel. 

Whew!!!


Chanel

Only a quarter of a century old and Kristen is showing no signs of slowing down with approximately 30 films or more under her young belt and a directing cred to boot. It is clear that Kristen has a lot more to give with her post-Twilight career while leaving fans excited for more. 

Speaking of Twilight, she is still set to judge the Twilight Storytellers competition for the next generation of Twilight films. Whew...again!



 Happy Birthday Kristen!  Have a wonderful day!!

NEW DWARVES FOR 'THE HUNTSMAN' WITH A NEW LOOK



Sheridan Smith Rob Brydon Alex Roach Split - H 2015
Sheridan Smith, Rob Brydon and Alexandra Roach

'The Huntsman' is definitely taking on a different look and vibe with the announcement of a new group of dwarves joining the cast. 

Rob Brydon, Alexandra Roach and Sheridan Smith, whom all are British actors according to the Hollywood Reporter, are a far cry from the distinguished group of actors who took over these roles in 'Snow White and the Huntsman'. 


They will be joining Nick Frost who is returning as Neon. 
SWATH's dwarves were well-known for their tough guy characters in film which included the late Bob Hoskins. This time, a couple of ladies are added.  Could they be their wives? Girlfriends? Or just fellow dwarves?


Here's what THR says about the new dwarves: 

"Welsh actor Brydon will next be seen in HBO's upcoming series The Brink. He was most recently seen in The Trip to Italy, the sequel to The Trip opposite Steve Coogan, and Disney's hit live-action film Cinderella, now in theaters. He previously starred in the BBC series Gavin & Stacey."


"Roach's previous work includes The Iron Lady and Anna Karenina, and was most recently seen the British comedy Cuban Fury starring alongside Frost and Chris O’Dowd. She will next be seen in police drama series No Offence for Channel 4."


"Smith, who has won two Olivier Awards, also won a BAFTA TV award for her work on the series Mrs Biggs. On the film side, Sheridan recently starred in Dustin Hoffman's Quartet with Maggie Smith." 

Chris Hemsworth is returning as the Huntsman and Charlize Theron as the evil queen in the prequel. 

The film is set to open April 22, 2016.

KRISTEN STEWART JOINS JESSE EISENBERG AND BRUCE WILLIS IN UNTITLED WOODY ALLEN FILM



Jesse Eisenberg, Kristen Stewart and Bruce Willis


Deadline reports that Kristen Stewart, Jesse Eisenberg and Bruce Willis will star in an untitled Woody Allen film. Allen will not confirm.


"Allen might be the one director who, when he courts talent, doesn’t really show them a script. Everybody wants to work with him and they consider themselves lucky to be asked and if they’re available, they say yes almost always."


This will be the third collaboration between Stewart and Eisenberg.  Both starred in 2009's cult classic 'Adventureland' and will be seen in 'American Ultra' set to release this year.

DEPRESSION, BOXING AND A BEARD: JOHNNY HARRIS' JOURNEY THROUGH LIFE MAKES HIM THE ACTOR HE IS TODAY





Johnny Harris at the House of St Barnabas, London.



“I am who I am. And without my past I don’t think I’d be the actor that I am; I don’t think I’d have the same references. Sometimes,” he says, “I think this is how it was meant to be.” 


We know him as the lovable caring dwarf and son who sings in Snow White and the Huntsman; however, Johnny Harris hasn't played such kind characters throughout his career.  The one which won him his BAFTA was as vile as any character could be. 


To be able to play such a range of characters didn't come easy to Harris. In a Guardian interview, Harris poignantly talks about his his humble journey into acting which included a stint as a boxer, a bout with depression, alcohol and homelessness. 


Most people have a delusional belief that actors come from high society, private schools and rich parents. But what you find is that they are just like us. Working folks going through life ups and downs just trying to make it but instead of driving a bus or becoming a doctor, they want to be actors.  


Harris believed, as most actors do, once you get that one part, you're a star.  But sometimes it doesn't work out that way. 


"In 2000, Harris did secure his first major screen job – the film Gangster No 1. “It was massively exciting. They flew me first class to Berlin and I remember thinking, ‘Oh my God, I’m a movie star! I’ve cracked it!’” When this turned out not to be the case, he sunk into a depression. He finds it hard to pinpoint when he became an alcoholic, but for 10 to 15 years, he was “just keeping a face on things”."

Things went downhill from there. His friend who worked with Harris in Gangster No. 1 and who would later star with him in a blockbuster film called Snow White and the Huntsman, Eddie Marsan, gave Harris some help during this troubling time. 


"Helping out a friend in need, fellow actor Eddie Marsan, who he had worked with on Gangster No. 1, introduced him to the Union Theatre in Southwark. “He was directing a play there,” remembers Harris, “and I was really skint at the time, so I think he got me to paint the set.”  
 

Harris distance himself from both family and friends over a period of four years and became homeless under his own will. He slept on streets although he knew he had places to go.  It was a low time in his life where he turned to alcohol. 

"Eventually, Harris got help. “2004 was my lowest point,” he says now. In 2006, completely clean, he completed his first major role sober, in London to Brighton. Around the same time he met his wife, an adoption worker based in an office next door to the Union Theatre. This year, he celebrates his 10th anniversary of sobriety." 


*********


Harris and his acting career took off.  Today Harris has played many characters and most who are not known for their charm. 




"His ability to play sociopaths on screen seems a true talent; in real life, Harris is relentlessly cheery, gentlemanly, charming."

The notable item which the characters have in common is a beard. It may seem funny, but the Harris beard has had an effect on a few of his fans who were initially introduced to Harris through the heinous character in 'This is England '86'. 


"It has been four years since Harris enacted one of the most harrowing scenes I’ve seen on television. Even now, when he wears a beard, he understands that people are still reminded of Mick, the serial sex offender he played in Shane Meadows’s This Is England ’86. His horrific raping of Trev at the end of the acclaimed first series landed Harris a Bafta nomination, but perhaps more importantly for him, it also saw viewers take to Twitter to share their feelings of grief, horror and shock: “I guess for me, that was the real gauge of whether I’d done the role justice. I remember one person saying that when they watched they could hardly breathe.”"




His beard has become a true signature through many characters.


From left: Harris in the television series 'The Fades', Snow White and the Huntsman
and currently in the television series 'Fortitude'.

"These days, the beard is becoming a frequent feature of his work, the common denominator in a wardrobe of characters that are all damaged in some way: his gangster in Welcome to the Punch; a man living on the edge in Jack Thorne’s BBC horror The Fades and now the quietly menacing Ronnie in Sky Atlantic’s Fortitude. Beard Fear, we agree, shows no signs of abating." 



*********

Beard or no beard fans have nothing to fear. The real gentle and kindhearted man is far cry from the troubled characters onscreen.


Johnny Harris has become who he is because of his life experiences. What he has gone through has made him the great actor he is today. Life will do that.



“I am who I am. And without my past I don’t think I’d be the actor that I am; I don’t think I’d have the same references. Sometimes,” he says, “I think this is how it was meant to be.”

Read the interview in its entirety here and check out Johnny Harris every Thursday night on 'Fortitude' on Sky Atlantic (UK) and Pivot TV (US).
