Sally Kellerman, the svelte-voiced, sultry-voiced actress and singer whose portrayal of Major Margaret (Hot Lips) Houlihan in the 1970 black comedy “MASH” earned her an Oscar nomination, died Thursday at a residence- services in Los Angeles. She was 84 years old.

His son, Jack Krane, said the cause was heart failure.

During her decades-long career in film and television, she was best known for her role as the narrow but attractive army nurse in “MASH,” which also earned Ms. Kellerman rave reviews and a Golden Globe Award.

The film, directed by Robert Altman, broke new ground with its irreverence and graphic depiction of a group of passionate surgeons struggling to save horribly injured soldiers in an army surgical unit during the Korean War. (When “MASH” was adapted into a television series, the character of Mrs. Kellerman was played by Loretta Swit.)

Ms. Kellerman then appeared in several other films directed by Mr. Altman, including “Brewster McCloud” (1970) and “Welcome to LA” (1976). Like other actors, she was drawn to working with Mr. Altman because of the leeway he allowed in interpreting scripts and improvisational scenes.

After her starring role in ‘MASH’, Ms Kellerman sought to revive her singing career, performing her cabaret number at nightclubs like the Grand Finale in New York.

On the nightclub circuit, her performances garnered mixed reviews. Although she had “an intriguing raspy voice” and “the makings of an effective pop singer”, as the New York Times put it in 1977, she was criticized for some of the same qualities for which she was known. as an actress, like her “airy superficiality.

In an interview with The Times in 1981, Ms Kellerman spoke of the break she had taken to focus on singing, calling it a “great experience” that left her feeling “fresh”.

Sally Kellerman was born on June 2, 1937 in Long Beach, California to John Helm Kellerman and Edith Kellerman.

In Ms. Kellerman’s 2013 memoir, “Read My Lips: Stories of a Hollywood Life”, she described wanting to be a performer from an early age, when she was a “skinny little girl growing up in Granada Hills in the San Fernando Valley.”

“I had to come out of the womb singing and playing,” she wrote.

As a tall, chubby teenager, she harbored dreams of performing on stage that she kept secret until she was a senior in high school, acting in Hollywood High’s production of “Meet Me in St. Louis “.

At 18, then a self-proclaimed “jazz groupie”, she was offered a singing contract with famed jazz label Verve Records, Ms Kellerman told The Times in 1981. He was broken by his debilitating stage fright.

Her acting career began in musical comedy in productions like the Broadway musical “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” (1966).

Besides her son, she is survived by a daughter, Claire Kellerman Krane. Another daughter, Hannah Krane, died in 2016. Ms Kellerman’s husband Jonathan Krane also died in 2016. A previous marriage to Rick Edelstein ended in divorce.

In the 1960s, there was the Rat Pack, movie stars like Frank Sinatra and Humphrey Bogart who partied and indulged in Hollywood. Two decades later, it was the Brat Pack, painfully attractive twenty-somethings, including Rob Lowe and Demi Moore, known to dominate the coming-of-age genre. Cut to the new millennium and the rise of the Frat Pack, bro-y comedians such as Seth Rogen and Paul Rudd are often seen in R-rated blockbusters.

Now, another 20 years later, there’s a new group reaching cultural ubiquity, made up of versatile and versatile young Gen Z talents like Olivia Rodrigo, Maude Apatow and Kaia Gerber. They may not have a catchy nickname just yet, but together they are undoubtedly defining pop culture for a new generation.

Unlike previous iterations, this new alliance transcends any sphere of influence, with its predominantly female members rising to fame through film, television, music, modeling, influence, or, often, a combination of several of the items above. They’re solidly Gen Z, ages 17 to 24, and the few who aren’t celebrity kids themselves have grown up alongside those who are. They live in Los Angeles but call NYC their second home. they form their friendships – and build their careers – primarily through social media, using their massive platforms to bond with anxiety and boredom just as much as glamor and fame. They are colleagues and close friends, collaborators and muses, established icons and emerging talents. At least a handful are currently appearing on HBO Euphoria.

And even if not all of them are known yet, their power is undeniable. A casual Gerber selfie leads to the start of a new fashion trend; a musical record by Rodrigo boosts the career of another artist. To their millions of followers, these young stars are not just idols, but influencers in the truest sense of the word, constantly setting and resetting the cultural tone.

The Blacklist, an effort to boost the careers of unknown writers by bringing attention to high-quality unproduced scripts, was created 17 years ago with a focus on Hollywood. Now the organization is looking to expand its work to the theatre.

The project’s management announced on Tuesday that it will begin inviting playwrights and music writers to share their work with gatekeepers from the theatre, film and television industries, with the aim of helping them find representation, gaining commentary and producing productions in the world of theater or jobs in the world of film and television.

Four well-known nonprofit theaters, Miami New Drama in Florida, the Movement Theater Company in New York, Victory Gardens in Chicago and Woolly Mammoth in Washington, have each agreed to commission a new play or musical from a writer whose work makes surface through the project. . Commissions are $10,000 each.

“Our fundamental belief is that there are many incredible playwrights whose opportunities don’t match their talents,” said Franklin Leonard, who founded the blacklist. “If we can rectify that, that’s something we should do.”

The Blacklist began as an annual survey of scripts Hollywood executives loved but hadn’t made into movies, and the organization says 440 of those scripts have since been produced. Then the blacklist added a for-profit branch that allows writers to post scripts online to bring them to the attention of industry professionals, and also allows writers, for a fee, to request script reviews to readers who work in the industry. (Ratings cost $100, of which $60 goes to the reader.)

Leonard said he and Megan Halpern, the blacklist executive leading theater expansion, had been talking to theater industry leaders for months about expanding the reach of the blacklisted, with the aim of helping undiscovered playwrights and musical theater writers find work in theatre. and, possibly, also in the cinema or on television.

“What we’ve heard is that people want to find new playwrights, but the reality of wading through slush is insurmountable,” he said.

Canadian actor ‘Hawkeye’ and ‘Van Helsing’ Aleks Paunovic stars in new NFT sci-fi series ‘GenZeroes’ https://carolchanning.org/canadian-actor-hawkeye-and-van-helsing-aleks-paunovic-stars-in-new-nft-sci-fi-series-genzeroes/ Wed, 19 Jan 2022 18:00:04 +0000 https://carolchanning.org/canadian-actor-hawkeye-and-van-helsing-aleks-paunovic-stars-in-new-nft-sci-fi-series-genzeroes/ The Vancouver-based actor breaks new ground with a cutting-edge NFT sci-fi series, Marvel’s Hawkeye, and more.

The Vancouver-based actor breaks new ground with a cutting-edge NFT sci-fi series, Marvel’s Hawkeye, and more.

From Comparing Hollywood’s Marvel Family Ratings With Sir Anthony Hopkins To Starring In The Latest Movie NFT GenZeros – Canadian actor/producer Alex Paunovic proves to be always at the forefront of performance and more.

The Vancouver-based company Paunovic has its eyes on the future. Perhaps that explains his stranglehold if you will – on the sci-fi genre.

During the Christmas holidays, his latest acting work came out into the world, my brother.

Hawk Eye is an extended miniseries about the Avengers character and sees Paunovic plays Ivan, leader of the Track Suit Mafia – antagonist Hawk Eye at the whim of probables – Wilson Fisk (Kingpin) played by Vincent D’Onofrio.

While the show is already a Christmas comedy, the Track Suit Mafia/Trust A Bro! A moving company brings light comic relief to the proceedings. Hawk Eye connects summer blockbuster Black Widow as well as the old daredevil and the Defenders Netflix series with Endgame, Thanos, et al.

Paunovic meanwhile, it’s been rocking the North Hollywood lifestyle for over a decade and counting – longer than the Marcel Cinematic Universe.

Moving from film to television has already seen him work twice with Hopkins, Michelle Pfeiffer, and in the Planet of the Monkeyfilm series. He has been in Hell on Wheels, Arctic Air, Doyle’s Republic, and Supernatural, battle star Galactica, The 100, Arrow and snowdrops. Paunovic completed five seasons as a lead actor on Van Helsing last year before Hawk Eye hit the bullseye this Christmas.

During the confinement he filmed Zero touch— a pandemic-related movie starring Anthony Hopkins that spawned a sequel that’s being filmed right now. While Zero touch was the first Hollywood movie to exist on the blockchain – its sequel the first Hollywood movie to shoot in Antarctica; another first.

“When everything was locked down, I was very lucky to be involved and it turned into a trilogy.”

How does shooting a movie on a laptop change his approach to acting?

“The whole look is the same work and preparation you would – but the same background but the stakes are higher. Interesting in my own house and the decorator asking to make sure a light is on, or that I record before a take,” he says.

“It’s something new to do, something brand new. I love being able to create differently every time.”

“Now we travel the world.”

However, by Paunovic the other foot at this moment is firmly anchored in GenZeros – a cutting-edge, cross-platform episodic NFT series.

“We shoot ten 5/6 minute episodes and then comic panels. However, it’s so new – viewers can make a part of the show their own, and artists are involved on all levels. It’s crazy. It’s a new medium NFT world explodes. My whole role is the creative aspect, but what I love is that it’s artist-driven,” he says.

“When they dropped the NFT – they received a good response. House of Kibba need more than just a 2D drop – so I got some Van Helsing boys to show that they are leading the project.

The series is set 2200 years after an alien invasion and the ten factions fight to control the future of the world. Van Helsing matt scribes Venables and Jeremy Smith will serve as showrunners and are executive producers with Neil Stevenson-Moore. Kimani Ray Smith conducts.

“We have a phenomenal cast in place.”

It helps that the show is artist-driven — it shows where we’re going with the project — and the viewer can have fractional ownership.

The ‘GenZeros Universe’ includes the live-action series, comics, and collectibles.

“We could also drop NFT in the show, or practical things – props that we make for filming – could drop a piece from the show. It’s an exciting space to be part of. We go from a talky-talky scene to an animated comic that can show a big fight scene – have the viewer flip through the pages – then back to live action.

The hope is that the series’ final episode drops in San Diego at Comic Con in March 2022.

“I’ve never had an office gig before – but here are these guys breaking down the story. To be able to create something out of nothing is great,” he says.

“We’re working hard to get in front of a camera to make a living – to have a community that’s artist-led, supporting each other. It’s a whole new space NFT and realization. All we can do is try. I’m having fun seeing what can happen and where we can go with that.

End of February – Paunovic says four episodes should have been shot. When it comes to action figures – while GenZeros might have – that’s old hat for Paunovic who saw action figures for a handful of his characters there.

“It’s been a treat to be part of this universe. If they have an Ivan tracksuit figurine, of course, I’ll buy some.”

GenZeros could be a new way to produce films – and art as a whole.

Of course, that a building fell on Paunovic at the end of Hawk Eye, or it has been miniaturized, it cannot speak. marvel’s nes, or non-disclosure agreements are legendary. When he first auditioned, it was also under a cone of silence and mystery.

“When I auditioned – I did a read, sent a video. Then I was told after I booked a Marvel job.

His lips are sealed as to what happens next beyond GenZeros.

“There are a few other projects that I can’t talk about. We will go at the end of March with the Zero Contact trilogy, still filming GenZeros all over the world,” he said.

“Then some really cool things happen from April through summer.”

From born and raised in North Winnipeg, to Vancouver, Hollywood and beyond with the Marvel Cinematic Universe, to Antarctica and beyond with NFT.

“So crazy.”

For the past 24 years, ASCAP, the world’s largest music copyright protector, has partnered with the Sundance Institute to bring the ASCAP Music Cafe to the Sundance Film Festival.

And Loretta Munoz, ASCAP’s assistant vice president of membership, is thrilled the showcase is returning despite the coronavirus pandemic — it will be held as a virtual event alongside the festival for the second year in a row.

“We are just so happy and excited to connect with music and movie lovers and introduce them to the music of our amazing ASCAP members,” Munoz said. “The power of music is so strong, and to be able to bring the Music Cafe to the current form that it is now, which is needed, is great.”



This year’s lineup includes six-time Grammy nominee Brandy Clark; singer-songwriter and co-founder of punk band LA X, John Doe; R&B singer-songwriter Jordan Hawkins; singer-songwriter and actress Hayley Sales; Zimbabwean-American singer-songwriter and record producer Shungudzo; and Evan + Zane, a duo consisting of award-winning actor and singer Evan Rachel Wood and Grammy-nominated guitarist/singer-songwriter Zane Carney.

“We are happy to announce that John Doe is returning this year,” said Munoz. “He performed in person at the Music Cafe a while ago, and I’m a huge fan of X, and John along with his other bands and incarnations. He’s brilliant as John the author and John the songwriter and performer.



Munoz is also looking forward to introducing Clark.

“The stories she tells with her voice and her collaborations grab your heart and hold it tenderly,” she said.

The Music Cafe will also feature new artists such as Hawkins and Shungudzo, according to Munoz.

“Jordan is a handsome, up-and-coming R&B songwriter, and Shungudzo is a singer-songwriter and record producer,” she said. “She already has a long line of success, so having her first performance at the Music Cafe is super exciting.”

Zane Carney is known for his work in the Carney band, which includes his brother Reeve and sister Paris, Munoz said.

“I’ve known Zane for a while, and he’s a brilliant musician and guitarist,” she said. “So having him team up with actor and activist Evan Rachel Wood is pretty magical. I can’t wait to see them play together.

Munoz knows the power of music.

“It releases old memories and creates new memories, and according to an overused quote, music becomes the soundtrack to our lives,” she said. “For us to be able to do this virtually, that’s wonderful.”

In addition to the performances, the virtual cafe ASCAP Music Cafe will feature a program called ASCAP Screen Time, its film and television crew’s interview series that touches on the craft and business of writing music for soundtracks. and sheet music, Munoz said.

This year’s entrants will include “Brainwashed: Sex-Camera-Power” composer Sharon Farber and film director Nina Menkes; Saul Williams, co-director/composer/screenwriter of “Neptune Frost” and Anisia Uzeyman, co-director; “Call Jane” composer Isabella “The Machine” Summers and film director Phyllis Nagy; the composers of “Cha Cha Real Smooth” Este Haim, of the band Haim; and Christopher Stracey.

Writing music for film and collaborating with filmmakers has been something ASCAP has been able to pursue, given the virtual platform, Munoz said.

“Over the years we’ve tried to schedule composers to perform at the Music Cafe, and that lends itself to a certain type of performance that wasn’t the best way to showcase those composers,” she said. . “So Screen Time will allow people to sit down with these composers who will share their experiences. To be able to put these composers and filmmakers on a platform in front of festival-goers is magical and enlightening, as there are so many ideas these artists can show for how music drives a film forward.

The move from the in-person Music Cafe to a virtual format first happened last year, and since then ASCAP has used the platform to host other music presentations, Munoz said.

“We’ve been hosting these events since the pandemic began, and the ASCAP team is at a high level to be able to navigate the virtual platform in a fairly seamless process,” she said.

Munoz also thanks the Sundance Film Festival team for ensuring that last year’s online Music Cafe went off without a hitch.

“If there was anything that needed to be changed on the Sundance side, they were right, so combining Sundance with ASCAP in our second year is something we look forward to,” he said. she declared. “Getting from a semi-in-person event to a fully virtual event in days is such a big task. We will therefore be on the front line with them on Thursday when the festival opens.

Yet Munoz can’t wait until ASCAP can create an in-person, “on-the-ground” Music Cafe in the future.

“I miss working with the sound teams and our colleagues at Sundance,” she said. “I miss the magic of the shared greenroom, where many artist collaborations emerge. So we’ll do everything we can to improve our digital experience, and we hope people enjoy it. »

  • Tom Cruise returned his Golden Globes

    Cruise reportedly returned his three Golden Globe trophies to the HFPA, which has been criticized for a lack of diversity as well as ethical lapses.

    The 58-year-old actor won the Globes for Best Actor for Jerry Maguire, Best Actor for Born July 4 and Best Supporting Actor for Magnolia.

    Those performances also earned Oscar nominations for the Mission Impossible star.

    The HFPA is a non-profit organization made up of journalists and photographers who report on the entertainment industry.

  • Oscars vs. Golden Globes

    An important distinction between the two awards shows is that the Golden Globes also honor television, while the Oscars exclusively honor cinema.

    Golden Globe winners are chosen by a small group of 93 HFPA members, but Oscar winners are chosen by around 60,000 industry professionals who are AMPAS members.

    The Globes are also a bigger event than the Oscars, with free food and drink, while the Oscars usually only feature the awards show, with the rest of the celebration taking place after the party.

    Finally, compared to the Oscars, the Golden Globes have more categories.

  • ‘Nervous’

    Traditionally, the Golden Globes have been known as the boldest and wettest little brother of the most prestigious Academy Awards.

    In 2011, Robert Downey Jr. joked that he “didn’t know if an actress can do her best job until I have slept with her”.

    And Avengers star Jeremy Renner, 50, joked about Jennifer Lopez’s impressive “globes” on stage in 2015.

  • HFPA controversy

    NBC dropped out of the awards show last year.

    It emerged after it emerged that not a single one of the 87 members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association was black.

    He made a series of changes in an attempt to settle the scandal.

    But the move failed to persuade the boycott stars to participate or to broadcast the event live.

  • Who hosts the Golden Globes?

    The host of the 2022 Golden Globes has not been announced.

    It’s increasingly likely that there won’t be a host this year.

  • The grades go down

    Globes audience figures fell from 18 million to just 6.9 million last year

    The audience was the smallest for the ceremony since US television giant NBC began broadcasting in 1996 – and just over half that of the BBC for last year’s Strictly finale.

  • Rules for guests

    The few guests who will be at the Beverly Hilton hotel are under strict orders to wear masks and socially distance themselves at all times.

    Proof of vaccination, negative PCR test and vaccine booster are also mandatory for all participants.

    Officially, the organizer, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, cited the pandemic and the increase in Covid cases across America as the reason for the low-key celebration.

    But in reality, a slow and steady drop in ratings coupled with a growing controversy over gags and handy portrayal has seen the Globes’ appeal rise.

  • Online event only

    Once Hollywood’s most notorious party, filled with the rich and the beautiful, it will now be online only amid increasing pressure on diversity and controversial gags.

    Organizers have confirmed that this year’s ceremony will only go live after the boycott of A-listers who declined to participate.

    This Sunday’s event will take place without an audience, without famous presenters – nor on the red carpet adorned with fan favorites such as Lady Gaga and Briton Olivia Colman who both won in 2019.

  • Surprise Presenter: Snoop Dogg

    Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) President Helen Hoehne announced the nominees for this year’s awards during a live broadcast on the Golden Globes YouTube page on December 13, according to Variety.

    She was joined by a surprise presenter: Snoop Dogg.

    He read the nominees in several categories.

  • Retired Golden Globe Awards

    Some Golden Globes awards have been withdrawn, but have already been awarded in the past.

    These rewards include:

    • Best Documentary – Awarded from 1972 to 1976
    • Best Foreign English Language Film – Awarded from 1957 to 1973

The week may be slow for the rest of the music industry, but Nicki Minaj apparently remains focused on business. Despite being a relatively new mom, Minaj has something major in the works for 2022 – and it’s not just a sequel to her latest album. Queen. In a new Instagram post, director Deon Taylor of Meet the blacks, fatal, and the release soon, Fear, has made it clear that his next project will involve the pink footprint rapper.

“Wait, everything has become different !!” Taylor captioned a group selfie on her Instagram grid, which features Nicki, philanthropist Robert F. Smith, producer Roxanne Avent, chairman of quality control Brian Sher (who got into film and television from quality control earlier this year) and himself. “Wait until I tell you… .. I’m gone,” he continued, tagging each of the celebrities and using a slew of fiery emojis to indicate his… excitement?

Sher also posted the selfie with similar sentiments, but focused her attention on Nicki in the caption: “There you go …” he wrote, tagging Nicki in the post.

Fans are speculating the project will be a new HBO documentary / docuseries focused on Nicki and her career, as the project was announced in 2020. Nothing official from Onika at this time, but keep your eyes peeled for an upcoming announcement. , let’s hope so.

The 34th three-day China Film Golden Rooster Awards will be held in Xiamen, east China’s Fujian Province, December 28-30, attracting a number of prominent stars and industry insiders.

The Golden Rooster Awards, which were launched in 1981 (the Year of the Rooster), are a national film awards ceremony sponsored by the China Federation of Literary and Art Circles and the China Film Association. It has become China’s most prestigious film awards event and has significantly contributed to the development of the Chinese film industry.

As the host city of the Golden Rooster Awards, Xiamen has experienced rapid development in the film and television industry in recent years. Statistics show that in 2020, Xiamen’s cultural industry operating revenue totaled 116.36 billion yuan ($ 18.26 billion), an increase of 7.3% year-on-year.

Xiamen, a coastal city with enchanting natural landscapes and a pleasant climate, has been hailed as “a garden on the ocean”, and it also bears elements of Minnan (southern Fujian province) and western cultures, which help the city to earn the reputation of “natural studio” and is favored by many filmmakers and directors.

The city government has designated the film and television industry as one of the engines of economic growth and aimed to make the city a “film and television capital” in China.

The city’s continued efforts have proven to be successful. Official data shows that by the end of November, Xiamen had gathered 2,046 film and television companies, including 350 newly established this year. More and more industry leaders are choosing Xiamen as an investment destination due to its healthy business environment for the film and television industry. Xiamen has become a hotbed for film and television production such as the hit television series “Minning Town,” which released earlier this year.

At the same time, the rapid development of the film and television industry has in turn helped to strengthen the cultural soft power and urban competitiveness of the city, and the beautiful garden city continues to create a perfect harmony between man and nature and has become a calling card for both tourists and investors.

Keaten Winslet will be ready in a second. “I’m just going to put more eye drops on my stye,” she said. Blame his intense crime drama Mare of Easttown, one of the pandemic’s TV hits. “It was a pretty stressful job and about nine weeks later I had three styes in my left eye, the third of which turned into a small, sturdy bead and had to be cut out. But I continued. Let’s go to the show! She plays DS Mare Sheehan, who is raising her grandson, faces the suicide of her son and tries to solve the murder of a young mother in a working-class suburb of Philadelphia. All Without Makeup: Mare is more likely to achieve a Cheeto topped with a squirt of cheese spray than anything in the Max Factor range.

“The discussion of Mare’s appearance blew me away,” says Winslet. The 46-year-old actor speaks by phone from the West Sussex home she shares with husband Ned Abel Smith and seven-year-old son Bear, as well as his two children from previous marriages: 21-year-old Mia by her first husband, Jim Threapleton, and Joe, 17, by her second, director Sam Mendes. “People would ask, ‘Did she gain weight? Didn’t she look awkward? Wasn’t that brave of her? But why should it be brave? I guess because that’s not how the main actresses are portrayed. Maybe Mare will be the tipping point, and we’ll stop scrutinizing women onscreen so much.

Realism has spread to every corner of the show. “We always said on set, ‘This is too much TV. Keep your feet on the ground. ‘ I was constantly rubbing Marmite on the knees of my jeans or scuffing my sneakers with a Brillo pad. You cannot make one thing seem real: it has to be all. »Take Mare’s car. “She reportedly drove her grandson to and from kindergarten, giving him breakfast on the fly. I know what the floor looks like in the back of my own car – there’s crushed grain, with jingling bowls and spoons, because we had lunch on the way to school. You’re sitting on crumbs so encrusted in the seat it would take a fucking blowtorch to get them out!

That’s Winslet’s shtick: she’s possibly a seven-time Oscar nominee (she won in 2008 for the Holocaust drama The Reader) and a double Emmy winner (for two HBO shows, Mildred Pierce and now Mare of Easttown) but she remains the star who is a bastard like us. She’s a character that fits Mare perfectly – Winslet stepped in to make sure the ad images weren’t touched up to make her more presentable – as well as with our times. “Mare is what most of us felt during the lockdown,” she says. “She validated the permanent pajama look.

Inadvertently or not, Winslet has almost become the face of the pandemic. As reports of the coronavirus spread early last year, her 2011 disaster film Contagion, in which she plays an epidemiologist, rose to the top of the streaming charts. Three months later, she and several Contagion co-stars, including Matt Damon and Marion Cotillard, showed public information videos. Winslet has become something of a Covid Vera Lynn, making people happy by teaching us to wash our hands, cough into the crooks of our arms, and properly deploy the word ‘fomite’.

During the interminable third lockdown, she gave two outstanding performances: first as 19th century paleontologist Mary Anning in Ammonite, and then in Mare of Easttown. The two characters force Winslet to play against her natural warmth: It’s over an hour after Ammonite starts before Mary smiles, while Mare doesn’t laugh until episode five. “I took some of what I learned about Ammonite in Mare,” she says. “This brooding stillness. It is difficult for me because I am a happy, busy, active and cuddly person. This is who I am.

The scripts for Mare of Easttown arrived one by one as she and Saoirse Ronan filmed Ammonite on the Dorset coast. “I’d say, ‘Oh my God, episode five just happened,’ then Saoirse would go ‘- and here Winslet slips into her co-star’s breathless Irish beat -” “Mad Jesus Christ, it’s so exciting, you “I have to tell myself what’s going on! ‘ The audience was equally enthusiastic. “It happened just when people were in desperate need of something to discuss, other than who they knew who had died from Covid. It was putting families on couches, and there was a nostalgic quality in the one episode per week format. It gets the conversation going while you wait for the next one.

Winslet’s fondest TV memories of his childhood in Reading, Berkshire revolve around exactly those kinds of cliffhangers. “You would desperately want to know what would happen to Zammo next in Grange Hill, or the Fowlers in EastEnders.” Is she a binger now? “Covid taught me to binge. In more than one way. But yes, Ned and I watched Ted Lasso pretty much back to back. Covid didn’t make you feel so bad hanging out on the couch. “

It would be wrong to suggest that Mare of Easttown simply responded to the nostalgia for deferred gratification when there are so many other reasons to praise her, especially her female characters. “Middle aged women have long been underestimated, looked down upon and looked down upon in the film and television community, and now that is changing,” she says. “Look at the actresses who won the Emmys. Neither of us were in our twenties, and that’s cool! I feel a lot cooler as an actress in my 40s than I ever imagined. “

She also felt a deeper connection between herself and the character than she did in her previous jobs. “I knew Mare and this world perfectly well. I grew up in a small terraced house in a working class community in a small town where your life overlaps the lives of your neighbors simply because the walls are so thin. If Lorraine down the road had had varicose veins treated, the whole world knew it. What if, for the very first time, the couple two streets across the way voted Conservative instead of Labor, then damn it! – all the shit broke out in our house, and my parents were wondering if they should tell these people about their choices. It was not a very small cul-de-sac. It was the road to Oxford. If I was in my parents’ room, I could be face to face with the people on the top deck of the # 17 bus.

Winslet is proud of Mare of Easttown’s focus on community; the polar element might be the driving force, but it’s the medium that makes the show so salty and rich. There is also much less emphasis on damaged female bodies than the public would expect from police dramas. “You’re right, we showed less,” she says. “In the morgue scene, we had a mannequin that was an exact replica of the actress’s body and we were even respectful of that. Between takes, we covered the mannequin with a sheet.

For all of the show’s sensibility, its view of the police as uniformly caring, conscientious, and true seems archaic in light of the George Floyd and Sarah Everard murders, to pick only the most shocking recent examples of police crime. Shouldn’t television reflect the fact that the police badge is not necessarily a reassuring or honorable symbol?

“I don’t know if I’ll play Mare again,” Winslet said. “But if we were to do a second season, then for sure those atrocities that have existed in the police force here and in America will end up in the stories we tell. One hundred percent. You can’t pretend these things didn’t happen. She sighs. “It’s horrible, isn’t it?” This moment in time. It’s horrible. You hear me, I can’t seem to find the words because we all feel so betrayed and helpless. We need to turn this moment into something meaningful. We must use our voices on behalf of the people who do not have them. It matters to me now in a way that hadn’t even crossed my mind when I was 20.

Maybe she had other things to think about. His twenties started, after all, with the Titanic. “Do you know that Leo has just turned 47? “she asks, suddenly shocked. Then her voice becomes nostalgic as she thinks of herself and DiCaprio as puppies.” I was 21 on this set and Leo turned 22 ” I tell him that when I first met DiCaprio at the time, he complained to me about the grueling production of Titanic and how miserable he felt. She let out a hoarse laugh. ” I remember! I remember he was! It wasn’t pleasant for any of us, but we were all in the same boat. Although he had many more days off than I ever had. I guess I was brought up to be grateful and keep going. I didn’t think it was my right to be miserable, and if I has been miserable, I certainly would not have warned a reporter. She laughs again. “There’s no path I would have dropped that!

She and DiCaprio then played a struggling married couple on Revolutionary Road and met again in Los Angeles recently for the first time in three years. “I couldn’t stop crying,” Winslet says. “I’ve known him for half of my life! It’s not like I’m in New York or he’s in London and there’s been a chance for dinner or coffee and a catch-up. We have not been able to leave our countries. Like so many friendships around the world, we missed each other because of Covid. He’s my friend, my very close friend. We are bound for life.

If she was sitting in front of me now, I think she might seem like she has something in her eye. Or maybe it would just be the drops.
