The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced the results of its latest board of governors elections Thursday.
Among those joining the 54-member board are actor Alfred Molina, who has starred in films such as “Frida” and “Spider-Man 2” and the TV series “Feud,” and Danish director Susanne Bier, who won the foreign-language Oscar for her 2010 film “In a Better World.”
Along with Molina and Bier — who will assume the seats vacated by Tom Hanks and Michael Mann — other first-time board members are Tom Duffield, who hails from the designers branch, and Bonnie Arnold, who will represent the short-films and feature-animation branch. (Actress Brie Larson and director John Ridley were reportedly among the finalists in their respective branches.)
Alice Marie Johnson finally had the opportunity to meet guardian angel Kim Kardashian West in person, thanks to an interview with Hoda Kotb on the “Today” show.
The business mogul and social media icon met with President Trump in May on behalf of Johnson, a 63-year-old great-grandmother who was serving a life sentence for drug possession and money-laundering charges.
Hopefully audiences aren’t tired of Tiffany Haddish yet as the “Girls Trip” breakout is showing no signs of slowing down. The South Los Angeles native is starring in at least four movies coming out this year.
Roadside Attractions and Topic Studios announced Wednesday that they have acquired North American distribution rights to “The Oath,” the directorial debut of actor Ike Barinholtz ("The Mindy Project," "Blockers," "Neighbors"). Producers include QC Entertainment, one of the companies behind Jordan Peele’s “Get Out.”
The as-yet-undated fall release centers on a man (Barinholtz) and his wife (Haddish) whose Thanksgiving takes a turn when two federal agents — being held captive in their living room — give the extended family something to worry about beyond their typical holiday dinner table political rifts. John Cho, Carrie Brownstein and Billy Magnussen also star. A first look at the film is below.
