‘1917’ Named Top Film at Producers Guild Awards
1917” has won the Producers Guild of America’s award as the best-produced feature film of 2019, giving it an important victory at an awards show that usually honors the film that goes on to win the Oscar for Best Picture.

The film, an immersive drama about World War I that was fashioned to look like a single shot, triumphed in a field that also included top Academy Award contenders “Once Upon a Timein Hollywood,” “The Irishman,” “Parasite” and “Joker.” While the PGA win makes it a de facto frontrunner of sorts in that race, this is a year in which the Oscar race still feels unsettled.

Apollo 11” won the award for documentary feature, while “Toy Story 4” won for animated feature.

Producers Guild of America Honors Two Winners at PGA Awards West Coast Celebration

It was a rainy night in Hollywood, but no spirits were dampened at the Producers Guild of America’s West Coast Celebration of PGA Award nominated producing teams.

Held at the Hollywood Museum and bathed in the soft glow of Mel’s Diner’s neon lights, hundreds of guests snaked through four full levels of entertainment industry memorabilia – the multiple displays featuring costumes from the Pointer Sisters are not to be missed – while enjoying their choice open bars and wide-variety of hors d’oeuvres.

Deep inside the Max Factor building, even queuing for the elevator was more genial than at typical gatherings, in no small part due to the working bar housed inside – first introduced by Max Factor on the opening night of his Make-Up studio in 1935.

But for as comfortable as it was to lounge amidst Hollywood’s past, the evening was much more concerned about looking ahead towards the industry’s bright future.

Why ‘The Mandalorian’ Saved ‘Star Wars': Starlight Runner CEO on Building Buzz Around a Story

  • The Wrap
Jeff Gomez, co-founder and CEO of Starlight Runner Entertainment in New York, has been a key player in shaping the digital future of entertainment for decades. He helped push the Producers Guild of America to recognize a new credit for “transmedia producer” in 2010, and since founding his company in 2000 has helped major franchises — including “Halo,” “Men in Black,” “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles,” “Sesame Street,” “Transformers” and “Avatar” — grapple with telling stories across multiple platforms. Stories and characters — once siloed in films, television or comic books — now have lives and narratives that extend across all platforms, including video games and social. While 20 years ago this sort of storytelling was tertiary to tentpole films, it’s increasingly the starting point for major franchises, such as Star Wars, The Avengers and X-Men, as well as smaller properties ranging from Angry Birds to Magic: The Gathering. Gomez has been intensely focused on this sort

Charles Manson Masks, Made With His Ashes, Spark Outrage in Murderabilia Community

Charles Manson Masks, Made With His Ashes, Spark Outrage in Murderabilia Community
Two years after his death and 50 years after the infamous murders he orchestrated, Charles Manson is still fascinating some and inciting terror in others. This time, it’s in the form of two masks of his likeness that reportedly contain his cremated remains, as well as human blood.

This unusual project is a collaboration between artist Ryan Almighty and mask-maker Rick “Sik Rik” Fisher, and although anything Manson-related tends to be controversial, this particular piece has drawn new levels of ire.

“I’ve gotten a lot of death threats,” Almighty tells Rolling Stone.

Hey Kids, We Gotta Talk About Jake Gyllenhaal in John Mulaney & the Sack Lunch Bunch

Hey Kids, We Gotta Talk About Jake Gyllenhaal in John Mulaney & the Sack Lunch Bunch
John Mulaney, king of diner jukebox pranks and perfect anxious comedy, has gifted us something truly special this holiday season.  On Christmas Eve, Netflix debuted John Mulaney and the Sack Lunch Bunch, his latest comedy special that's less a comedy special and more a grown-up, neurotic fever dream of an hour-long Sesame Street segment. And that's a compliment.  The special stars Mulaney as himself, hanging out with a bunch of extremely smart and honest children, filled with enough subtle jokes and lines of dialogue that you might have to watch it multiple times to catch them all. There are moments that might catch anyone off guard throughout the special, but there's one musical number towards...

Link Tank: Uber Co-Founder Travis Kalanick Steps Down As Board Member

Spencer Mullen Dec 26, 2019

John Mulaney & The Sack Lunch Bunch, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, Travis Kalanick, and more in today's daily Link Tank!

Here are five ways that The Rise of Skywalker could have been fixed without altering the plot.

"Complaining about the big, broad swings of the lightsaber that is Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker’s plot is boring. We can whine endlessly about the specific writing decisions and whether they’re bad or good, but, where does that get us? Plus, if you liked The Rise of Skywalker, but you’re scratching your head about a few things, you’re probably kind of sick of trying to debate that it was perfect when you know it was really just okay but flawed."

How ‘John Mulaney and the Sack Lunch Bunch’ Became One of 2019’s Weirdest, Most Wonderful Hours of TV
Spoiler Alert: Proceed with caution if you have not yet watched “John Mulaney and the Sack Lunch Bunch,” streaming now on Netflix.

Children’s entertainment based on “existential angst and fear” might not seem like a natural combination on the face of it, but according to John Mulaney, that combination’s fueled the genre for as long as he can remember.

“A lot of entertainment that I consumed as a kid had a lot of either melancholy or dread, and it was not some undertone,” the comedian tells Variety. “Even things like ‘I know an old lady who swallowed a fly’ — every part of that [song] is odd and disturbing!”

And so as he set about building “John Mulaney and the Sack Lunch Bunch,” his new variety special for Netflix, co-written by Marika Sawyer (“Saturday Night Live”) with music by composer Eli Bolin. They drew inspiration from musical influences including Burt Bacharach,

Early in John Mulaney’s new Netflix special John Mulaney & the Sack Lunch Bunch (debuting December 24th), one of the comedian’s underage co-stars asks him what the tone of the show is supposed to be. “Is it ironic,” she wonders, “or do you like doing a children’s show?” Mulaney confesses that his answer depends on how the special turns out: If it’s bad, he’ll claim he meant it to be ironic. If it’s good, he’ll brag about how hard everyone worked. “You can go very far in life,
