›  Hollywood Talent Agency Ditches Usual Oscar Party In Favor Of Anti-Trump Rally

In a typical year, the United Talent Agency, like so many other talent agencies, throws a big shindig in the lead-up to the Academy Awards.


But after President Donald Trump decided to sign an executive order banning people from seven predominately Muslim countries, as well as all refugees, the agency quickly decided this wasn’t a typical year. 


Having a big fun celebration to celebrate the accomplishments of our industry just didn’t feel right,” United Talent Agency CEO Jeremy Zimmer told the Los Angeles Times.


So, the agency decided to throw an anti-Trump rally instead. On Friday, the agency held what it called a united voices rally at the company’s office in Beverly Hills in support of immigrant rights and in opposition to Trump’s policies. 



“I have nothing against parties,” Zimmer said. “But I felt that this could also be a moment to stand up and say, ‘Something’s wrong. This doesn’t feel right. And we need to pay attention to how this feels at this time in this country.’”


Celebrities, including Kristen Wiig, Aaron Paul, Piper Perabo, Jamie Dornan, Nick Offerman, Kat Graham, and Bill Nye, showed up, according to Nylon, as well as more than 1,500 other people.


The agency donated $250,000 to the International Rescue Committee and the ACLU, and raised an additional $70,000 through a crowdfunding campaign. 






In a speech, actress Jodie Foster said, “It’s time to show up. It’s a singular time in history. It’s time to engage.


“No matter who you voted for ? red or blue, whether you’re white, black, or brown, or all the colors of the identity rainbow, this is our time to resist,” Foster added. “It’s our time to show up and demand answers. It’s our time to tell our elected officials to do their jobs.”



Comedian Keegan-Michael Key focused on the power artists have to inspire change. “We have the ability to educate,” he said. “We have the ability to effect change, to bring people together, and to even sometimes bring light when there’s a whole lot of darkness. We’re the ones who have been given the mantle to tell everybody’s story. Whether you be trans, whether you be black, whether you be Latino, whether you be disabled ? we’re here to be a platform for you.”






At one point, Asghar Farhadi, a United Talent Agency client and Oscar-winning director who is boycotting the Academy Awards because of Trump, said in a video message that filmmakers have a role in helping people question their own prejudices about people who look and sound different than them. 


“Filmmakers can break stereotypes around the world by turning their cameras to capture shared human qualities. Your actions are heartwarming,” Farhadi said.

›  George Clooney Subtly Compares Donald Trump Era To McCarthyism

George Clooney was in Paris on Friday for the 42nd César awards, France’s version of The Oscars, where he was presented with an Honorary César for his body of work. 


On stage with actor Jean Dujardin, who presented the award, the actor at first thanked his wife, Amal Clooney, and the French Academy, before turning to the state of things in the U.S.





“As citizens of the world, we’re going to have to work harder and harder not to let hate win,” he said, later adding, “I was thinking about Edward R. Murrow as we find ourselves nostalgic for when America was great and when the news wasn’t fake.”


Clooney then weaved together quotes from one of the broadcast legend’s most famous telecasts, when Murrow famously criticized Sen. Joseph R. McCarthy (R-Wis.) on CBS’ “See It Now” on March 9, 1954, as the senator ramped up his anti-communist activities.


Said Clooney on Friday:



We must not confuse dissent with disloyalty. We must not walk in fear of one another. We must not be driven by fear into an age of unreason. If we dig deep in our history and remember that we are not descendants from fearful people, we proclaim ourselves indeed as we are the defenders of freedom wherever it continues to exist in the world. But we cannot defend freedom abroad by deserting it at home.


The actions of this president have caused alarm and dismay amongst our allies abroad and given considerable comfort to our enemies. And whose fault is that? Not really his. He didn’t create this situation of fear, he merely exploited it—and rather successfully.


Cassius was right. “The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars, but in ourselves.” Good night, and good luck.



Cassius, in this instance, refers to the character from William Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar. Clooney also swapped in a few words to bring Murrow’s words into the modern era, switching out the journalist’s “the junior Senator from Wisconsin” for “this president.”





Edward R. Murrow’s famous criticism of  Joseph R. McCarthy


Clooney is a known fan of Murrow’s career, as he wrote, directed and starred in 2005’s “Good Night, and Good Luck,” a film that followed the tension between Murrow and McCarthy in the 1950s. 


The actor has repeatedly taken President Donald Trump to task in recent months. Just earlier this week, he called Trump a “Hollywood elitist” who collected “$120,000 a year in his Screen Actors Guild pension fund.”

›  Young Woman Unlocks Secrets Of The Universe At A Music Festival

Who are we? Where do we come from? Why do hands look so trippy?





We may never know the answers to these questions, but for a brief moment it would appear this young woman at a music festival did.


The promotional video was put together by the producers of Wobbleland, an annual California music festival that plays dubstep music. This year’s festival, held this month, featured artists including Skrillex and Nero. The video, posted online Thursday, already has amassed millions of views. 


A Wobbleland organizer put the video on Reddit, saying the woman was given a free guest list for life for allowing producers to use the footage. 


Some say she’s still dancing.

›  'I'm Done': Patrick Stewart Says He's Retiring From X-Men Movies





The X-Men may have to find a new mutant to seek guidance from.


Patrick Stewart has announced that he is retiring from the “X-Men” movie franchise after 17 years portraying the sage mutant leader Professor Charles Francis Xavier ? a.k.a. “Professor X.”


The 76-year-old British actor shared his decision during a SiriusXM Town Hall discussion on his upcoming X-Men film “Logan.” The full discussion and the film are slated for release on March 3, Entertainment Weekly reported Friday.



Speaking beside his “Logan” costar Hugh Jackman and the film’s director and co-writer James Mangold, Stewart said he came to the decision after watching the latest installment about a week ago and finding himself moved to tears.


“I sat there I realized there will never be a better, a more perfect, a more sensitive, emotional, and beautiful way of saying au revoir to Charles Xavier than this movie,” he said.


Jackman, who has also confirmed that he is leaving the franchise after starring as Wolverine, was one of the first people he said he shared the news with.


“I told [Jackman] that same evening, ‘I’m done too. It’s all over,’” Stewart said.


Stewart has starred in six of the X-Men movies preceding “Logan.” These are “X-Men” (2000), “X-Men 2” (2003), “ X-Men: The Last Stand” (2006), “X-Men Origins: Wolverine” (2009), “The Wolverine” (2013), and “X-Men: Days of Future Past” (2014).

›  Transgender Model To Caitlyn Jenner: 'We Do Not Need You To Save Us'





Transgender model Isis King tweeted a blunt open letter to Caitlyn Jenner on Friday after the reality star criticized the Trump administration’s decision to rescind Obama-era guidance that protected transgender students in public schools.


King, the first openly transgender contestant to compete on “America’s Next Top Model,” calls out Jenner in the letter, referencing an incident at the TransNation Queen USA Pageant in October in which Jenner allegedly ignored King’s presence, then cut in front of her to take an empty elevator for herself and her team.


“I could not believe that this happened to me and immediately felt as if I had just been asked to move to the back of the bus,” King writes in the letter. “It was as if I was not good enough, not worthy enough, not rich enough, not famous enough to ride with these three white women. ... The amount of privilege that was thrown in my face made me feel so uncomfortable.” 






King seemed to suggest that the insult represents a larger issue in the trans community when it comes to power, privilege and visibility: “I have, like so many women of color, helped blazed [sic] trails for our sisters, brothers and siblings, and I have seen how you treated me. We do not need you to save us.”


On Thursday, Jenner tweeted a video message directed at President Donald Trump “from one Republican to another,” calling Trump’s blow to the rights of trans students a “disaster” and telling the president “we’ll see you in court.”


The video was met with harsh criticism from parts of the LGBTQ community. Jenner was an outspoken supporter of Trump during the 2016 election ? even attending his inauguration.


UPDATE: 1:25 p.m. ? King said in an interview with TooFab.com that Jenner called following the tweet of the open letter, and the pair have now “resolved everything.”

›  Impeachable: A New Kind Of Protest Song



People have been wondering what folksinger/activists, some of them septuagenarians like Noel Paul Stookey and me, might be doing in the face of the current cataclysmic challenges to our democracy and our nation.


The answer is simple: we are going to keep on keeping on. We inherited a legacy from Woody, Pete Seeger and the Weavers and many others who inspired us. They never quit, never stopped and never stopped advocating. Doing so is “in our blood” and it’s a great gift to both Noel and me, as it would be to Mary – were she still to be with us. She would join, even (or maybe especially) at our advanced age, the current advocacies that “hammer out a warning”, “ring out danger” and “sing about the love between our brothers and our sisters”.  No, we’ve not “gone away”. We, and others who also come from the folk music/activist tradition, are solidly committed to using our music to generate community and consensus at our concerts and at gatherings and demonstrations to confront the most dangerous of challenges now threatening our country.


I have written, and currently perform, two songs that have come out of the presidential campaign and its results, one being The Children Are Listening and the other being, Lift Us Up.  I am grateful that, in a limited context (for sure) both of these songs have become rallying points for efforts to assert what is good in ourselves and what is reprehensible and frightening in the face of the recent election. 


By far the most important effort yet, by either Noel Paul or me – in terms of its reach and, in my opinion, its brilliance – is Impeachable, a parody Noel wrote of the song Unforgettable, which was a huge hit by Nat King Cole from the early 1950s.  Impeachable was just released on the internet and went viral with, currently, over 800,000 hits.  (Please share this link with your buddies and help us spread the message.)


Impeachable is an example of Noel’s extraordinary ability to write a super-funny, very surprising yet also, highly nuanced, lyric. He is, and has always been, an amazing songwriter. In its first public performance last weekend Impeachable brought the audience at our concert in Thousand Oaks, CA to its feet with a prolonged standing ovation. There were screeches of delight the likes of which I have never before heard at a Peter Paul and Mary concert.



Noel has clearly struck a hugely resonant chord amongst those who heard the hammer strokes warning of a grave danger to our nation, our democracy and, in fact, the whole earth.


Impeachable is a new twist on the kinds of songs that Peter Paul and Mary were singing that helped to mobilize Americans at the time of the Civil Rights Movement and the Anti-Vietnam War Movement.   Blowing In the Wind and If I Had a Hammer written by Bob Dylan and Pete Seeger & Lee Hays, respectively, were anthems that brought folks together in ways that let them recognize, in very personal ways, their collective strength as well as reassert a commonly held ethical/political perspective. Such was also the case with Where Have All the Flowers Gone and a myriad of other songs. With their repetition at rallies, marches and on the radio, these songs inspired many newcomers to the world of activism who asserted to us that our music, and that of our fellow folk musicians, became the “sound track of their political awakening”.  (In our view, this is one of the greatest compliments we ever received.)


Today, of course, the dominant transmission of such advocacies comes through social media, though in-person efforts such as The Women’s March on Washington, and the demonstrations at Standing Rock that electrified the nation are still, I believe, the most powerful tools for social/political mobilization.


Also, there is another new aspect to a musician’s, or an actor’s, or any artist’s efforts in the realm of advocacy. In this time, humor, as offered by the likes of John Oliver, the gifted cast and guests, such as the amazing Alec Baldwin, on Saturday Night Live, Samantha Bee, Melissa McCarthy, Stephen Colbert and Trevor Noah, to name just a few, has played a huge role in inspiring and activating the spirit of our nation. It cuts through the extreme “noise” in tweets, frightening pronouncement and actions emanating from the current administration,


Please take heart my friends. From my travels, I have found that there has been a huge call to action heeded, even (and emphatically) in my and Noel’s elder demographic. Be assured that a large body of former artist-activists is mobilizing now with their songs, their poetry, their heart-rending videos, their humor and their visual work on signs and memes that spread across the internet with ever more amazing directness, humor, and determination.  As long as this continues to build, we’re walking together and gaining strength.  Let’s carry it on, my friends.


In solidarity and love,
Peter

Impeachable
By Noel Paul Stookey


Impeachable, that’s what you are…
Impeachable, and yet so far...
You’ve avoided closer scrutiny
And even though Vlad-i-mer Putin, he
Opens many doors, it only makes you more...

Impeachable, and when, some day
We can say ‘you’re fired’ and you go away
You may have thought you were unreachable (but) history makes some moments teachable:
Someday Pence may be impeachable too

›  Muhammad Ali's Son Detained At Airport, Asked 'Are You Muslim?'





The son of the late boxing great Muhammad Ali was detained at a Florida airport this month and asked about his religious preferences, a family friend says.


Muhammad Ali Jr., 44, was returning to the U.S. from Jamaica with his mother, Khalilah Camacho-Ali, when customs pulled them aside at the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport on Feb. 7 for questioning, Chris Mancini, a family friend and lawyer, told the Courier-Journal Friday.


Customs officials let Camacho-Ali proceed once she produced a photo of herself with her former husband Muhammad Ali, but since Ali Jr. did not have such a photo, they detained him for almost two hours. During his detention, he says officials asked him questions like “Where did you get your name from?” and “Are you Muslim?”


Ali Jr., who like his late father is Muslim, is an American citizen with no criminal record. He was carrying a U.S. passport with him at the time of his detention.


“This is an outrage,” said Mancini, who is a former federal prosecutor. “I don’t know what is going on with Mr. Trump’s claim that his ban is not religion-based. We do not discriminate in this country based on religion.”






President Donald Trump has repeatedly contended that his executive order banning refugees and people from seven predominately Muslim countries is “not a Muslim ban.” A federal judge blocked the order was blocked days before Ali Jr. was detained. 


What right does the United States have to inquire about somebody’s religion when they enter the country?” Mancini said. “This is an instance where the ban has been enforced even though it has been thrown out. The government is still trying to find grounds to keep Muslims out.”


Multiple outlets have reached out to the U.S. Customs and Border Protection for comment, which has simply said, “Due to the restrictions of the Privacy Act, U.S. Customs and Border Protection cannot discuss individual travelers; however, all international travelers arriving in the U.S. are subject to CBP inspection.”


The Ali family is considering filing a federal lawsuit. 


To the Ali family, it’s crystal clear that this is directly linked to Mr. Trump’s efforts to ban Muslims from the United States,” Mancini added.

›  Obama Is Back From Vacation And Looking ?

He’s back! 


Former President Barack Obama has finally returned from his post-presidency vacation, where he got some much-deserved R&R in Palm Springs, California, and on Richard Branson’s private escape in the British Virgin Islands. 


While Obama’s vacation style consisted of a backward hat and flip-flops, he looked seriously dapper in New York City on Friday in a black suit and a white collared shirt. No tie necessary. 


Twitter took notice. 






The former president enjoyed a night out with daughter Malia. The two dined at Emilio’s Ballato, a popular Italian restaurant in Little Italy. (And happily posed for photos.) 




They also saw the Roundabout Theatre Co.’s production of Arthur Miller’s “The Price” at the American Airlines Theater, starring Mark Ruffalo, Jessica Hecht, Tony Shalhoub and Danny DeVito. 




Some theater-goers didn’t even notice who was in the audience with them.  










Welcome back, Sir!

›  Here's What Brad Goreski Wants To See These Oscar Nominees Wearing

We’re just one day away from finding out which film will take home the Oscar for “Best Picture.” For us fashion folk, though, the real show starts way before the first award is handed out. 


Brad Goreski, co-host of “Fashion Police” and “E!  Live from the Red Carpet,” will undoubtedly have plenty to say about the red carpet looks after Sunday night’s festivities. But what would he, as both a stylist and lover of fashion alike, dream of seeing the show’s leading ladies wearing? He broke it down for The Huffington post, straight from the runways. 


We’ll have to wait until Sunday night to see what Emma Stone, Meryl Streep, Natalie Portman, Ruth Negga and Isabelle Huppert actually wear, but we’ll have our fingers crossed for at least Stone in some variation of that Dior number. Check out that pick, and all five picks for “Best Actress” nominees gowns below. 


Emma Stone



“I would really love to see Emma Stone give us a big, ball gown couture moment. I love the soft pastels and layered petals of this [Dior] skirt. It’s feminine, romantic and definitely a gown for a winner.”

Isabelle Huppert



”I love the combination of the intricate beading and the white skirt. So chic and classic Chanel! I would modify the neckline a little bit to close up the plunging neckline.”


Meryl Streep 



“I love the flowy chiffon and hand-painted flowers on this Giambattista Valli Couture gown for Meryl Streep. The beaded high neck acts as jewelry and adds a little sparkle to this very effortless gown.”


Ruth Negga 



“Ruth has been fearless on the red carpet this awards season, wearing very elevated designs by great designers. I think this Gucci gown, with its exaggerated shoulder and plunging neckline, is perfect.”


Natalie Portman



”I love this vibrant lilac color for Natalie Portman. This simple Valentino silhouette and gorgeous fabric make a statement without being too fussy.”

›  Jimmy Fallon's Rosetta Stone Spoof Will Help Anyone Translate Donald Trump





Translators of the world, Jimmy Fallon has your back.


Amid reports that interpreters are struggling to understand President Donald Trump because “it sounds like he’s speaking his own language,” the “Tonight Show” host unveiled a new (spoof) Rosetta Stone program on Friday.


The “Trumpese” edition of the language learning software helps people get to grips with what the commander in chief is really trying to say. So now there’s no excuse.

›  Stephen Colbert Summarizes This Year's Oscar-Nominated Movies, Based Solely On Their Posters



Stephen Colbert admits to not watching the movies that are nominated for Best Picture at the 89th annual Academy Awards.


So for Friday’s broadcast of the “Late Show,” he got into the spirit of The Oscars by summarizing each of the contenders ? based solely on what he’d seen on their promotional posters.


It turns out “Lion” is literally about two lovers from the wrong sides of the tracks ? well, according to Colbert, anyway.

›  Stephen Colbert Takes Aim At Donald Trump's Nuclear Arsenal Ambitions



Stephen Colbert picked apart President Donald Trump’s desire to ramp up America’s nuclear arsenal on Friday.


The “Late Show” host first poked fun at the way in which the commander in chief said Thursday that he wanted to make the U.S. the “top of the pack” when it came to nukes.


“Not sure if he means top dog or leader of the pack,” quipped Colbert, “but either way, he is not the sharpest knife on the Christmas tree.”


Taking on a more serious tone, Colbert called a new proliferation of nuclear weapons a “terrifying prospect” — coming as it did following years of “careful” decommissioning.


“It’s like the Cold War all over again,” the host said. “But this time everyone’s on Russia’s side.”
