Nicole Kidman Wins SAG Award for Best Actress in a Miniseries or Movie for ‘Big Little Lies’

Nicole Kidman Wins SAG Award for Best Actress in a Miniseries or Movie for ‘Big Little Lies’
The question wasn’t so much if “Big Little Lies” would take home the SAG Award for Best Actress in a Miniseries, but who. As has happened multiple times since last fall, Nicole Kidman took home the prize, edging out two of her fellow cast members.

Co-stars Laura Dern and Reese Witherspoon were two of the other finalists in the Best Actress in a Miniseries category. The idea that the actresses from the HBO hit would cancel out votes for each other was mitigated by the fact that the only other series nominated in this category had a pair of actresses itself: Jessica Lange and Susan Sarandon each picked up nods for “Feud: Bette and Joan.”

“It’s only the beginning,” Kidman said of the support stories about older

‘Saturday Night Live’ Review: Unsurprisingly, Jessica Chastain Makes Quite The First (Time Hosting) Impression

‘Saturday Night Live’ Review: Unsurprisingly, Jessica Chastain Makes Quite The First (Time Hosting) Impression
Like with Sam Rockwell last week, this episode of “SNL” works very well to make Jessica Chastain a true part of the show — not just a necessary semi-presence — and make sure that her voice is clear in her sketches. And you know what? As it turns out, Jessica Chastain’s comedic voice (in addition to her voice as a feminist) is pretty weird. Especially when she starts doing voices.

Host: Jessica Chastain

Before Chastain starts doing voices, she’s got to start doing a musical monologue. You know the deal by now, gentle “SNL” viewers. But, said monologue does involve the forever jam “You Don’t Own Me.” And before it becomes a musical number, you’ve got Chastain’s brief aside about wanting to play the nagging girlfriend as opposed to the strong female for once. That particular moment is kind of like Sam Rockwell’s monologue noting he

The Indie TV Dream: Here are the Ambitions and Realities Facing Sundance’s First Full TV Section

Before Sundance fully embraced television, it was already making small screen dreams come true.

“Last year, our wildest dream coming into the Episodic Short Form program was to sell our web series to television, and that’s exactly what happened,” Josh Feldman and Shoshannah Stern said to IndieWire.

Feldman and Stern created a series called “The Chances” that premiered at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival. It’s returning to Sundance in 2018, but this time as a fully-fledged TV show with distribution, a full first season in the can, and an official release date — February 14, 2018.

Walmart Wil Return to Oscars Ads, Enlisting Female Directors

Walmart wants to go to the movies again.

The large U.S. retailer will advertise for the second consecutive year in ABC’s Oscars broadcast, refining a concept that sparked word of mouth in 2017.

As it did last year, Walmart will run short 60-second films during the awards-show telecast, but this time each will be devised by one of three female directors: Melissa McCarthy, Nancy Meyers and Dee Rees (above, pictured). Each advertisement starts with the depiction of the chain’s blue shipping box, and then continues with the director’s interpretation of where it goes to, how it arrives and what’s inside.

Walmart executives say they aren’t trying to cash in on the “#MeToo” movement, but simply put on a show, of sorts, that will resonate with the audience watching the annual awards. “We are aware of the conversation going on, but we are looking to be integrated authentically into the show,” says [link=nm
