Little Beauty, Less Beast

I hope you were not waiting on this.  For lots of people, Beauty and The Beast went hand-in-hand with The Little Mermaid as the hallmarks of the renaissance of New Disney—headstrong heroines who love books and adventures and just happen to find romance along the way. Then for others, Beauty and The Beast, the stage musical, was a surprisingly mid-key segue between the grandiose musicals your mom went to with her friends, like Phantom of the Opera and Les Miserables, and the RENTs and Avenue Qs that became your workout soundtracks on a super-skip-y CD Walkman. Full Story

If they could only find a way to have Emma Thompson around every year – not necessarily to present, but just to be present, to remind those assholes that they’re there to entertain, to be admired, to be recognised, to be honoured, and it’s a f-cking privilege, not the burden they can make it out to be. Full Story

This photo of Meryl Streep and Emma Thompson was taken 10 years ago while they were promoting Angels In America. Which was my first thought when I saw them together last night at the NBR gala where Meryl presented Best Actress to her friend and, at the same time, delivered a speech that shat on Walt Disney for being a racist, sexist, misogynist asshole …without taking away anything from Emma’s accomplishment. Full Story

Two of our favourite women

Let’s start with Amy Poehler. I love that Amy Poehler isn’t too big to still be doing sh-t like this – running around NYC in a goofy costume crashing into people with a camera and singing Christmas carols all while generally being funny and awesome and spontaneous. She’s the BEST. Full Story

Well now this race is all over the place. The National Board of Review just announced its list and Best Picture went to… Spike Jonzes’s Her, starring Joaquin Phoenix and featuring Scarlett Johansson’s voice. Apparently Scarjo’s work in this film is so wonderful, there are those who believe she should be nominated for an acting award even though she doesn’t actually appear onscreen. Full Story

Look, I might argue that the TV ladies’ roundtable was a little more fun and rollicking, but there is no denying this was a delicious interview, whether you consume it on video (again, it’s an hour, but it doesn’t feel that long) or in print. Full Story

Thespian drama! How British is this sh*t? Today news has broken that Emma Thompson has forgiven Helena Bonham-Carter for having an affair with Kenneth Branagh. The story goes that back in the ‘90s these three were involved in the most English love triangle since crumpets, marmalade and tea, with Helena and Kenneth boning on the set of Frankenstein, effectively destroying his 6 year marriage to Emma. Full Story

Here’s Emma Thompson at her hand and footprint ceremony at the Chinese theatre in Hollywood. As you know, this one knows how to put on a show. Because, as she’s said, as she’s declared emphatically, is that she is an entertainer, and that it’s her job, her obligation to ENTERTAIN. Full Story
