SAG Awards Will Be Presented Entirely by Women, Kristen Bell to Host

First-ever SAG Awards host Kristen Bell in “The Good Place”: NBC/Justin Lubin

The Screen Actors Guild will stand with women at its 24th annual awards ceremony. According to The Hollywood Reporter, women will present each statuette at the January 21 event. This gesture is SAG’s way of supporting women in the wake of the myriad sexual harassment and assault stories that have come out of Hollywood in the past couple months. “The Good Place’s” Kristen Bell will also serve as the SAG Awards’ first-ever host.

“Beginning with the Women’s March in January, it’s been the year of the woman,” SAG Awards Ep Kathy Connell explained. “This is a unifying salute to women who have been very brave and speaking up.”

Of course, men will not be entirely absent from the ceremony. The male SAG winners will take the stage to accept their honors and it

Screen Actors Guild Award Nominations: ‘Three Billboards’ Dominates, ‘The Post’ Shut Out

Screen Actors Guild Award Nominations: ‘Three Billboards’ Dominates, ‘The Post’ Shut Out
“Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri,” Martin McDonagh’s blood-soaked revenge thriller, dominated the Screen Actors Guild Awards nominations on Wednesday, picking up a leading four nods. The film was recognized for its ensemble acting, while the performances of stars Frances McDormand, Sam Rockwell, and Woody Harrelson were all singled out. “Lady Bird,” Greta Gerwig’s tender coming-of-age comedy, was close behind with three nods, including nominations for best ensemble, and a best actress and best supporting actress nomination for Saoirse Ronan and Laurie Metcalf, respectively.

Both of those films have been major forces in this fall’s awards race. However, Steven Spielberg’s “The Post,” thought to be a contender, was shut out, with stars Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks failing to make the cut.

In addition to “Lady Bird” and “Three Billboards,” the other films recognized for their ensemble were “The Big Sick,” “Get Out,” and “Mudbound.” “The Shape of Water,” Guillermo del Toro’s monster

SAG Awards 2018 Full TV Nominations List: Netflix Dominates, While HBO’s ‘Big Little Lies’ Leads

SAG Awards 2018 Full TV Nominations List: Netflix Dominates, While HBO’s ‘Big Little Lies’ Leads
Netflix binged on Screen Actors Guild Awards last year, winning four of the eight major TV awards — including both drama and comedy ensemble prizes (for “The Crown” and “Orange is the New Black”) — and it appears destined to repeat in 2018. The streaming service dominated the 24th Annual SAG Awards nominations roster on Wednesday morning, cleaning up with 19 nods overall — ahead of second-place HBO (12).

Netflix’s nominees were spread out among some of its most critically acclaimed series, including “The Crown” and “Stranger Things” on the drama side, and “Glow” and “Orange is the New Black” in comedy. The streamer also landed multiple nods with “Ozark” and “Grace and Frankie,” while SAG favorite Robin Wright, now the sole star of “House of Cards,” scored a nod.

Also in the hunt: Hulu, which entered the SAG derby with “The Handmaid’s Tale.” But just like the Golden Globe nominations earlier this week,

SAG Awards TV Predictions 2018: Why ‘The Deuce’ and ‘Glow’ Could Disrupt the Race

SAG Awards TV Predictions 2018: Why ‘The Deuce’ and ‘Glow’ Could Disrupt the Race
The Golden Globes are traditionally TV’s awards disrupters. With so many new shows nominated, it elevates them long enough to (potentially) make a difference at the Emmys. But the SAG Awards are a more telling barometer of industry enthusiasm.

Actors make up a large chunk of the TV Academy membership — much more so than the 80-odd members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association — which means seeing what they’re rewarding in December can often predict what might be a player when Emmy season begins next spring.

With so many shows launching in April to take advantage of Emmy voting, series that premiere in the fall need Globes and SAG Awards love to keep buzz alive through the winter and into the spring. Shows like “The Deuce,” “Glow,” “Ozark,” “Mindhunter,” “Godless,” “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel,” and “Smilf” are aiming for a little extra attention right now.

Christopher Plummer Earns Golden Globe Nomination for Kevin Spacey 'All the Money in the World' Role

Christopher Plummer Earns Golden Globe Nomination for Kevin Spacey 'All the Money in the World' Role
Christopher Plummer earned a Golden Globe nomination for Ridley Scott's Getty family biopic, All the Money in the World.

The nomination comes as a bit of a surprise considering the actor stepped into the role of J. Paul Getty only last month, after Kevin Spacey was removed from the film.

Initial allegations of sexual misconduct were leveraged against Spacey by Star Trek: Discovery actor Anthony Rapp in October. In an interview with Buzzfeed, Rapp claimed that Spacey came on to him in 1986, when he was just 14 years old. Since then, eight current and former House of Cards employees have come forward claiming that Spacey created a "toxic" work environment on set. He has also been accused of sexual misconduct and assault by several other men. Through his lawyer, Spacey has denied all these allegations.

In addition to being removed from All the Money in the World, Netflix severed all ties with Spacey, including canceling a planned

Justice League passes $600 million worldwide but still the lowest-grossing superhero movie of the year (for now)

It may not have been the box office smash that Warner Bros. would have been hoping for (which, reportedly, has led to a major shakeup at DC Films), but Justice League has ticked off another milestone this weekend with the DC blockbuster passing the $600 million mark worldwide.

By close of play this weekend, Justice League has grossed $212.1 million domestically, and a further $401.3 million worldwide for a total of $613.4 million.

Initial reports had claimed that Justice League would need to bank around $650 million to break even, given its $300 million production budget plus hefty marketing costs. While that’s technically still possible, it will soon have to contend with Star Wars: The Last Jedi, which is sure to suck the life out of almost every other release over the Christmas period.

Should Justice League fall short of that figure, it would also remain the lowest earner of the DC Extended Universe, with

Steppenwolf actor Ciaran Hinds reportedly unhappy with theatrical cut of Justice League, wants to see Zack Snyder’s version

Since the release of Justice League, Warner Bros. has come in for a lot of criticism for its “Frankenstein” cut of the DC blockbuster, with Joss Whedon having been brought in to oversee extensive reshoots after Zack Snyder was forced to leave the project due to a family tragedy.

So far, a petition for the studio to release a Zack Snyder cut has attracted over 150,000 signatures, while the call has also gained support from cinematographer Fabian Wagner, and now it seems we can also add actor Ciaran Hinds to that list.

According to photographer Jason Laboy, the Steppenwolf actor has revealed that he was unhappy with the final theatrical version of Justice League, and is hoping to see Snyder’s original vision receiving its own release.

@DCFUniverse @DCEUnited @fukujang0627 @SherazFarooqi_ just told me he hopes they release Zack’s cut. He was not happy with the theatrical cut pic.twitter.

Loss leader: can a TV show continue without its main character?

Jeffrey Tambor’s future on Transparent is in doubt after sexual assault allegations, but history proves it’s possible to live on beyond an original lead

Transparent and House of Cards are both noteworthy shows. They are both prestigious. They both helped to prove that streaming services were capable of competing with traditional television. And they both hinged on award-winning turns by big stars, who are now unlikely to feature in any more episodes thanks to stories of their sexual impropriety. The question is, with Kevin Spacey and Jeffrey Tambor potentially out of the picture, can House of Cards and Transparent survive? Can any show, in fact, if the lead character suddenly drops out?

Justice League scenes were shot featuring Superman’s black suit

In the build up to the release of last month’s Justice League, there were several hints and suggestions that Superman’s black suit from the ‘Death of Superman’ story arc would feature in the movie. We had alleged leaked photos, action figures, and even social media posts suggesting as much from the Man of Steel himself Henry Cavill.

Well, as we now know, Superman wore his traditional blue and red costume throughout the movie, but during an interview with Inverse, cinematographer Fabian Wagner has confirmed that there were plans to include the black suit, but it ended up on the cutting room floor.

“There were [scenes shot],” said Wagner. “It’s a cool looking costume. Sadly, we didn’t see that either in the final cut.”

Justice League performance leads to huge DC restructure at Warner Bros.

Justice League might be edging towards $600m at the global box-office, but with Wonder Woman making much more than that on her own, the largely derided Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice nearing $900 million for its entire run, and Marvel’s equivalent superhero mashup, The Avengers topping out at $1.5 billion, there is no other way to view the film than a huge failure. It appears Warner Bros. share the same opinion, and the studio has begun a huge shake-up a mere twenty days after the film hit cinema screens.

Variety is reporting that the first casualty will be Jon Berg, who was ushered in along with Geoff Johns to oversee the the Dceu in the wake of the perceived failure of Suicide Squad and BvS. Variety states that he will leave his advisory role, but remain as a producer. Johns will stay as a chief creative officer with DC Entertainment,
