Oscars 2020 Preview
"HI everybody. It's Peter Travers. Here here with this special edition of Popcorn which we're calling the Oscar popcorn because this weekend on February ninth exactly everybody will be watching. Being the Oscar telecast on ABC and probably having their own little ballot. Like I have here trying to figure out who's going to win this damn thing and if the person I don't like winds pushed I put my money on. That's what really happens. That's what people ask me on the street. So I'm GonNa take you through these main categories and and we'll see what will win what should win and we can argue. You can find me somewhere and we can argue about it. But I'm going to start with with best supporting actress. Because that's how the Academy Awards those that's always the first award that we say Kathy Bates in Richard Jewel. Laura dern in marriage in story Scarlett Johansson in Joe Rabbit Florence Pew in Little Women and Margot Robbie in bombshell so look. There's it's a lot of good people here and I have to say right at the outset. That Scarlett Johansson is one of those rare actors that has a nomination as best actress. Chris and best supporting actress marriage story for Best Actress in here supporting which usually gets you to win one and that usually that it's usually that one but it's it's not going to happen you know I'm sitting here saying did I read wrong. What happened to Jennifer Lopez and hustlers? Hasn't she been in this game since the release Lisa Hustler she has and yet the academy you bad people have decided that J.. Lo just wasn't Oscar material while you're wrong but look we we have to deal with rats here and I'm going to say that the person who will win in this category is also the person who should win. And that is Laura Burn and Laura dern in marriage story plays a divorce lawyer and she's a tough one and let's think of all the Hollywood people that are voting for this award and how every single one of them I'll wager. A BET has their own divorce lawyer and has been through this process. Maybe more than once. Maybe two we're three times to do it. And they find Laura Dern Dunn's in this movie something spectacular it's also one of the few awards. I think that marriage story story is going to win. But Laura Dern has never won an Oscar. This will be her first time. Everyone loves her. We all love and big little lies and I think this is her time on so let her have it all right. I'm moving onto best supporting actor. Tom Hanks in a beautiful day in the neighborhood. Anthony Hopkins in the two popes Al Al Pacino in the Irishman Joe Pesci in the Irishman and Brad Pitt in once upon a time in Hollywood. Look you're talking to a big Irishman fan here so if it was me saying come up for the gold it would be Joe. Patchy I know Joe Pesci doesn't do any publicity. He basically sticks fix to himself. He's probably tough guy in real life as the gangster that he plays in the Irishman but that performance is amazing and won won his first Oscar for another score says he movie goodfellas where he was the most scary gangster. You can see here. He's kind of quiet dawn. So if I'm I'm giving them it would be Joe Patchy but the academy is giving this award and no one. No one can win. This except Brad Pitt. These other people here Tom Hanks Anthony Hopkins Al Pacino and Peci all have won Oscars so they already have the gold. Do you realize his full career. Brad Brad Pitt has never won an academy award game over people. This is it Brad. You're going to get in once upon a time in Hollywood playing a stuntman. It man playing somebody who's been around the business. I think it's irresistible for Hollywood to say I'm going to reject one of my own. Plus he was great in the movie. You seem to hear my voice that I have a little bit of a problem. Yeah I do. Because that's not a supporting performance at all that his part is the equal who of his Co Star Leonardo DiCaprio's WHO's nominated for best actor. So why is he in that category. I think they want to win. And Brad you might as well prepare repair your speech right now okay. I am now moving onto best actress. Cynthia Haribo in Harriet Scarlett Johansson in marriage story. Sir Sharon in little women. Charlie's Sharon in bombshell and Renee Zellweger in Judy. What Best S. actress award so far from the Golden Globes to the critics choice awards has it Renee Zellweger one? She's won all of them. So is there any possibility ability here for something else. I mean. Look what Charlie. Stern did in bombshell. She not only plays Megan Kelly. The makeup geniuses have made her look exactly exactly like her and Charlie's has talked exactly like are they love bio pics there so she should be really strong. Social Ronin is like twenty five years old. She's he's on her fourth Oscar nomination. This is incredible and Scarlett Johansson. Like I said nominated for best. Supporting actress and Best Actress. Cynthia revolt is playing Harry Tubman and she also wrote the song from the movie which is nominated. That happened to somebody last year. Didn't it yes it was lady. Eating Gaga Lady Gaga was nominated for writing that wonderful song from stars born and his best actress. But what did you win. She won best song and that was it so I have to say that again. I would give this award person late to search for Ronin just because I think to be that young and to be that consistently brilliant is amazing and her performance in little women. Is that good. But it's Rene as I talk about. How Hollywood would love bio-pics this is? Judy Garland that she's playing judy. This is one of their own. Did they ever give. Judy Garland her own Oscar Competitive Competitive Acting Oscar. Never and I think for that reason not only will renee Zellweger win best actress but she will win for Oscar. Judy Garland on never had. It's their way of saying Judy. We love you. We were so stupid not to give it to you. And we're going to give it to Rene in honor of you. This is how Hollywood works. It's really crazy. But if you're betting on this you have to bet crazy. Aright best actor Antonio Banderas in pain and gory. Leonardo di Caprio in once upon a time in Hollywood Adam driver in marriage story what came Phoenix and joker and Jonathan Pryce in the two popes. I look at this category and before I get into. Who Will Win and who should win? I've I've got to say academy what you have against Comedians. And what do you have against Eddie Murphy. That he's not nominated for Dole. Might as my name what you have against Adam Sandler who proved his dramatic chops in uncut gems. Like nobody can believe and yet they have it they only like to give Oscars to actors serious actors who played comic roles. Ause they hate anybody who's making a living as a comic to actually win this war so this year's been going along I've had this feeling that this was Adam drivers to lose that performance in marriage story is one of the best things he's ever done or that I've seen this year and yet there's this other guy and who's that other guy he's Joaquin Phoenix plane joker. Sometimes there's that kind of performance sometimes. There's there's one that just so dominates the screen. That is such an act of immersion of from an actor in a raw. Yeah Joaquin was scary. He was sometimes funny. He was always touching even though he's playing somebody who's totally out of his mind and a lot of this movie his in his mind. What Cain has been nominated several times before and never one Joaquin? This is yours. I can't believe any set of circumstances. Stances if you WANNA bet the whole house on something and somebody to win it's going to be Joaquin Phoenix as best actor for joker game over all right. We're ready now to move on. I'm going to best director now. This is one of the most exciting categories because these people will these particular men and save and because Hollywood as wont of decided that even though there were more women directing movies than ever before four last year. They couldn't find any to nominate which is of course absurd because Greta Gerwig directed little women which is nominated as best picture and they. I thought no I'm just GONNA do five men like we always do what happened. You people sort of learned a couple of years ago when you nominated Greta. GERWIG quick for Ladybird didn't give it to her. But you nominated her. The KADEMI is ninety two years old. Now how many women has given an academy award for directing one. And that's Kathryn Bigelow for hurt locker. Ninety two years one award hang your head in shame name anyway not knocking any of these men that did get nominated. But there's one in there that I would sacrifice for Greta Gerwig but you you try to guess who that is anyway. Here they are. Martin Scorsese the Irishman Todd Phillips. For Joker Sam Mendes for nine thousand nine hundred Seventeen Quentin Tarantino eighteen. O for once upon a time in Hollywood and Bung June hope for parasite every one of these guys you can make a case for. Martin Scorsese Z.. To me is a master the grandmaster who only has one Oscar for directing and then the Irishman is doing some of his best work. Ever Quentin Tarantino. Not No with once upon a time in Hollywood is also a peak form and yet I'm saying this category is going to between two other the directors one of them being the South Korean Vong June Hall for parasite a Foreign Language Film. That seems to have got everybody excited about what's possible and then Sam Mendes for nine hundred seventeen a world war one movie that is constructed to look like it was done in in one continuous. Take how do you resist that. You don't even though I think they would really like to give their best director award worked. Bon John. How it's going to be for Sam Mendes for creating a war movie like no war movie we've ever seen before so sam I think think it's yours but if you're getting out there and you WanNa go to Bung Jun Ho? You know you might do it because there's always a surprise in these contests we can't go. Oh by what the odds are we have to go by sometimes the academy saying I have an instinct for this. I have a feeling this is the right way to go all right last category. Are we ready best picture of the year Ford versus Ferrari the Irishman Joe. Joe Rabbit Joker her little women marriage story nineteen seventeen once upon a time in Hollywood and parasite here is is the one you know every year I do this. It's between one or two movies this year. I can't reduce anything to to the Irishman my estimation a classic one for the ages. Martin Scorsese. Ed Is Best Robert De Niro Pacino. Joe Patchy making a mob movie about old-age age about the end of a mobster. This is the punishment that they get for the lives they live. There's nobody in their lives there alone. It's a tragedy Quentin went and Tarintino. Once upon a time in Hollywood is writing about Hollywood in the sixties and about a time that he thought was the last creative burst of Hollywood Hollywood and doing that. Nineteen seventeen again the World War One movie shot to make it look like. It's one continue steak and parasite a movie about a Korean Rian family in which they exploited the people they work for and then are exploited by the people working for them it is a classic. These are four incredible classics. So what am I gonNA do. What am I going to tell you? What's out there that you have to say? This is the winner and I'm going to go with with all excuses. No excuses in fact to my love for the Irishman. But I think this is the year of Quentin Tarantino. I I think once upon a time in Hollywood being a love letter to Hollywood and being voted on by people who live and work in Hollywood Quentin Tarantino despite right brilliant work with pulp fiction inglorious bastards reservoir dogs Django unchained has never won a Best Picture Oscar or a best director Oscar. Never it's never happened. What better time than now? When he saying Hollywood I love you? I think it's time Hollywood to say to Quentin Tarantino. I love you back back. So you've got it watch the show and afterwards we'll have a discussion.
Oscar Picks of Wesley Morris from The New York Times
"Wesley Morris is here. Sometimes we fly him out. And we just put you on a whole bunch of podcasts. And we just wind you up and you go yeah Ping Pong Pinball pinball Wesley Yeah Oscars this this weekend yes I can never get through Oscars week without talking to you for at least ten minutes on what's going on. I'm not sure what happened to the Oscars because we have all these prohibitive favorites. There's no drama at all. Everyone thinks nineteen seventeen gonNA win. Isn't that wild. Everyone thinks Phoenix is GonNa win for the joker. Okay yeah that Renee Zellweger is GonNa win for Judy. which I five saying? No no no it made money Brad Pitt for once upon a time And then Laura dern for marriage story yes and those are Kinda done y- everyone the the. They're like huge huge favorites. It doesn't even make sense to bet on them. They're such huge favorites. You'd be like betting on. I don't know the the though Oklahoma City Thunder to beat some division. Three Kinda odd you the only one. That's kind of even best director. Sam Mendes as twenty five favorite. That's what is happening. Is it just. The Internet has made this that the consensus the census of thought now nobody goes against the grain and they just kind of follow the pack. What's happening here? I don't know I think I really feel like increasingly. There are just enough people. I don't know how voters individually or feeling about not pressure to pick a certain person person but the like doing the work to really choose the thing you love the most because every year you read those blind items that variety are Hollywood reporter daily beast. I do yeah And you read these Oscar voters say things and they all have. They all seem to have individual taste rate to hear these. I voters justify why they're voting. They're voting for you. You would think anything could win but that never happens will rarely happens right so I also also believe that in this particular year. I think there's a lot of politics going on like like movie. Industry politics rang. Explain plan so I don't think that people. I think there's a number of things happening. I think people don't like parasite that much. I think they see it. I think that was that was okay. I don't know how they could think that it actually got. It's like Robert Covington right now the NBA trade deadline. It's gotten hyped up too much now. People going wait a secondly. I think it's great it's awesome you're going to see it and you you end up going and you're like yeah it's good but you're not like Oh my God you're right I'm blown away. Yeah Yeah I can't speak but some people are leaving matt a Lake Nona. Nope they're leaving. They're probably just watching it at home but like they're they're watching this movie and they're just Kinda like well okay. I and I'm rich people poor people and I think that I mean I really think that they think it's that simple and I also think good. I really liked it. I didn't think it was like the best picture picture the year I why do but you do really. I was the case in a minute. I think it's just okay. The very simple thing is it takes a story. It takes an idea that I can't believe that in a hundred and you know twenty years of movies. Nobody's ever done before nobody's ever fought to turn the class. Divide into into a game in this particular way. Yeah and by the time they get to the sect by the time the father other by the time the father gets the job. So the third the third introduction of the the glomming onto this family. I'm just I was just laughing. I was is laughing with happiness at the brilliant to this idea. He's such a great of these nine movies and most like almost all of them are perfectly made. I would say that's the one that surprised me the most in terms of how tight and smart and and surprising it was the one thing I don't like goodbye it is the ending but in talking to people about who also sort of ending is anticlimactic but it also needs to be there none. Nobody could come up with a better trending. So this is the endings. Movie needs to have this elegiac sort of tragic fantasy ending. I liked once upon a time. The most I mean and as you know I also love them. We did a podcast about that on this podcast. Back in August we wait. Let's go back though we dated Rewatch ables. That's coming this week about about it already. Yeah well we do one Oscar movie every year O- of the nine area to get out on time. That seems fair. Yeah UH-HUH I think forward and for our versus Ferrari of those nine movies. That in little women I think are the most those are going to prove to be the most re watchable bowl of those. I'm so glad you said that. I feel like those have become the underrated. I'm not sure what happened. In each case moves. I thought little women was excellent. Women Soak so good the crazy thing about this year. Is there a two stores. I just wrote a story about this for the paper and the the the maddening thing about these nine movies please. And I'll get back to the into back to what people are saying about who they are. Why nine hundred seventeen is going to win for political reasons Movie movie industry political reasons. But I just read a piece about like how. This is the first year since they expanded the field ten. Move to up to ten movies that I have liked every single one of these movies more or less except for one and I don't like joker either. Yeah I don't like never really really align this year on what we didn't like I like that I didn't. I don't like joker I didn't have fun. I thought his performance was awesome. But I've seen a lot of movies that whereas the performance was awesome. But I'd necessarily loved the movie right I don't even I don't even Joaquin. Phoenix is one of my four favourite male actors. And this does not I feel like this is the first time he is looking for a character as like we are watching him do work mark. The I think it's done before you start shooting in this movie Part of it is. He is playing a person who's changing but he's always playing people who were undergoing some sort of ecological little change wasn't he's so much more interesting in the master. Oh everything he was doing. If you're going to start there then I'm like why did you give just give Antonio Banderas the Oscar. I mean that's where you're GONNA start but I'm saying like I don't know why I took this movie for people to like. Here's his Oscar. Movie when he was so good the pastor I mean the thing that was more interesting performance interesting thing that we should talk about. Is that like he is one of those people were. He's just a person who is owed right like it's he's been he's a set of a woman quote suffered so long just give him just give it to him not that he's begging for it because because when he took this part I was like oh well you know he clearly. He clearly understands with businesses going and I would never accuse him ever of like being being interested in getting any prizes for the work. He's doing but I also feel like there is a sense that he's been nominated three other times. I think maybe maybe four do you remember how lost to the master who who when they're You're talking keep your point going on anyway. I feel like if I sat here and thought about it. I'd come my with but I'm not going to remember those thirteen Two thousand thirteen. So we have. Is that Matthew mcconaughey. Now it's not McConnell. Now he lost a Daniel Day. Lewis Link Oh well that's that's just bad luck for Joaquin Phoenix. I remember having issue with that at the time you should have. I mean just just as a matter of history you should rostker you blaspheme. He's fine. He's fine I thought Athletes Ship

The Most Anticipated Movies of 2020
"I'm Shawn Fantasy and this is the big picture. A conversation show about the most most anticipated movies of twenty twenty men. And we've been talking all about the movies of Twenty Nine Thousand Nine on our various Oscars awards conversation shows. We need to look forward now. The reason we need to look forward is because new movies are opening and they're not these dingy horror movies that they try to open January third and trick people into thinking might be decent. Here's there's actual big budget studio movies with movie stars this weekend. We have little movie called doolittle and a little movie called bad boys for life. We've seen both of these movies. He's rolling GonNa talk about one today. We'll talk about the other one later next week. Hopefully you will have seen that other one after that but mostly we're GONNA be talking about movies. We don't really know that much about other than the names and the titles and we're talking about why we're looking forward to them. Let's talk about the big picture aspect of movie going in twenty twenty. I'll just say as I've mentioned at the end of the year last year. The little worried about who will people go to the movies this year. Do you think that I'm justified in my concern. One hundred percent. We talk about this on every other podcast that we make now for the big picture because moviegoing has been Ben. I don't even know if I WANNA say in a state of crisis but it has been changing and the way that people consume movies has been changing pretty rapidly and dramatically for several years now but this feels like the come to Jesus Year I agree so obviously twenty. Nineteen was deeply loaded especially by Disney with mega event movies. Not just the vendors endgame not just Star Wars Skywalker but the lion king and Aladdin reboots Dumbo reboot toy story. Four came through. There were a lot of movies. Movies that Disney at least perceived as moviegoing events now in addition to that we got a lot of great fun stuff we got once upon a time in Hollywood and parasite became a box office success. And we'll the four versus Ferrari and did very well. There's always going to be surprises. I would guess that the movies that we're going to talk about here and you're gonNA choose ten and I'm GONNA choose ten. They'll be some some big ASS. Hits hits among those movies but the movie is not the schedule is not loaded like it was last year. I think there will be a distinct or of panic panic around. What's going on at the box office? Pretty much by April or May I think we have our first taste of the panic. That's coming though. Yes yes so this week you and I saw the movie do little which stars Robert Downey junior as Dr Doolittle Let me say this movie is terrible. It is terrible will in a way that I have not experienced in my adult life and I was in a deep amount of pain watching it. I don't think you had negative reaction to the movies I did though well L.. This movie is very bad. Let's just get that affront if it is not a successful movie but I do kind of put on my. This is a kids movie helmet at some point eight and I think I'm not looking to be as rewarded on a deep emotional or cinematic level as you are or once. I realized that the movie is Robert. Downey junior talking to animated animals. Sure here's my thing. This movie makes cats look like grizzly man. Like it's really true. I think that I had a better time doolittle than I did at cats. That's astonishing still worst experience that I've pat movie in like five years. There was no plot and it was creepy people singing weird songs about what kind of cats they are I like I can't I know I've said exactly that five times but I will never wrapped my head around the fact that hundreds of people sought that that was a good idea. The wanting one thing. The cats and Dr Doolittle do have in common is that they are both based on previously existing Ip. There's been not one but two different iterations of Dr doolittle over the years. Of course the very famous nineteen sixty seven version with REX Harrison. And then Eddie Murphy came back as a doctor doolittle of sorts in the I believe in the early outs. This version has had some trouble in the reason. It is so bad ad will the reasons it is so bad manifold. Let's start with some of the production problems so in April twenty nineteen Hollywood reporter had a report about the struggles of the making of this movie. They wrote the new photography lasted twenty one shooting days not including new postproduction work according to insiders and came after an overhaul courtesy of Chris. McKay the helmer the lego Batman movie. Now Chris McKay was not the original director of this Dr doolittle movie which I believe was originally called the voyage of Dr Doolittle. Yes and it was written and directed directed by Stephen Geoghegan Listener. Stephen Geoghegan wrote and directed a movie called Syria which does not in any way resemble the story telling the joke writing the the general disposition of doolittle. Those two things have nothing to do with each other. It appears that Stephen Geoghegan was just a little bit out of his his depth in making a movie like this teach on report. Sources say that it's become apparent to the studio and producer. Susan Downey Joe Roff and Jeff Kirschenbaum. Last fall that the movie budget at one hundred and seventy five million dollars needed some surgery. Geoghegan is known for his Oscar. Winning work on layer dramas traffic and Suryana is his first time tackling visual effects heavy production. That was also comedic in tone own. Self they bring in these new folks Chris McKay among them. Also I believe the writer of the teenage mutant Ninja Turtles series was brought in to Do some script doctoring. Bring didn't help I don't think we need to recap necessarily story. It is technically a voyage. doolittle does go on a voyage. Why do you think they've changed the title? Because I have no idea. Maybe they're just hoping that if all you hear is little. Then you'll think of the other. Innovations I have Dr doolittle and then go see a movie when you say you. Who Do you mean? I people with children people who go to the movies. I don't know. Would you recommend this movie. The parents parents with children. I don't know what your life is like or what your parents rearing is like. I really don't. I don't know what you're looking for in a experience with your your children. We don't have to talk about the entire movie but can we talk about a couple qualitative issues with the film. Fire Way you turn to me about twenty minutes into this movie or maybe it was like seven minutes but it felt like twenty. It felt to me like nine hundred. And you pointed out aghast that Downey junior performance was dubbed not just align here there but literally his all of his voice work the entire film the entire fell. It's very obvious as you're watching the movie s and I also have to say the dubbing is. I turned back to you and asked whether other Robert Downey junior is supposed to be Scottish. or whether there were some troubling racist elements to his voice. It really is all over the place in not got a great way. So the dubbing does not achieve anything additive to the movie. We can only speculate what had happened. My guess is Robert Downey. Junior is an adventurous actor and he likes to. He likes to make choices certainly felt like he made a choice in the original shooting of this film used a certain voice or accent and then they the production decided. This isn't going to work now. It's possible that there was even a sort of production error like it wasn't properly recorded. Yeah that'd be incredible mismanagement of this movie. That's in play. But the other actors that appear in the movie and we should say a great many quality actors appear in this movie up chief among among them Michael Sheen doing his damnedest to play a compelling villain and my beloved. Jessie Buckley shows up in this movie. With two lines of dialogue. She sleeps on a bed. Basically throughout the film Talladega how. That is Jessie Buckley until about sixty minutes. And it's very strange. Antonio banderas shows up Antonio Matarese Oscar contender Antonio Banderas. Who is fine but none of those figures seem to be dubbed? They all seem to be using their natural speaking voices. And there's no eighty are in play here so the whole thing is just absolutely confounding and it is highly distracting as you're watching the movie every time you see Dr Doolittle onscreen and he is on screen all the time because he is the titular character. You're like why. Why is the track sink? Not Correct with the film. This is a film released by a major studio. How did how did this? Hundreds of million dollars spent on it. I don't really know it's it's it's staggering and an unfortunate You wrote down here that the dramatic climax of this movie is literally a Dragon Fart. Which is true spoilers? I guess I often as people in my generation do misuse the word literally. But in this case it's literally what what happens. It is literally what happens and I just I I was in and I was in pain in the eightieth minute of this movie. I was like God Damn Emmett. I'm supposed to be alive in the world. A little community harrogate that his bad movie. But I think I said to you afterwards. It was no less sensical to me than say Melissa sent. And I think I probably turn to you more times during the listen to it was like what the hell is happening opening. And what are we serving like the children of America
Florence Pugh on Little Women, Oscar Nomination & Meryl Streep - Jimmy Kimmel Live
"Top five films of the year. I can't believe that I'm so in line with the academy but my top five were all nominated for best picture parasite the Irishman Mary Story Little Women. And once upon a time in Hollywood and I am grateful that little women at least wasn't completely overlook getting six nominations that one for director Jour- obviously is one the bugs me and I also think it was surely one of the best edited films of the year but happy about Florence pugh and some of the other nominations at got yeah definitely Florence. Pew is someone. I voted for best adapted. Screenplay was a no brainer so I'm glad to see that they honored little women there as well and there were things that I was happy about also I mean it. It isn't all gloom and doom for me five of films that made my top ten of twenty nineteen were recognized in major categories so best picture nominations for parasite the the Irishman and Joe. Joe Rabbit. Those were all my top. Ten best actor nod for Antonio Banderas in pain and glory. I mean it seems like you shouldn't have to say this but I was worried just because it's a Spanish language performance It might be overlooked or relegated to the sidelines. So I'm glad that didn't happen. And best original screenplay nomination for for my number nine film of the year. Ryen Johnson's knives out. We talked about the intricacy and the cleverness yet also the entertainment factor actor all coming together in that screenplay so it had to get that

Screen Actors Guild Reveals Award Nominees
"Welcome to the frame Steven Cuevas filling in for John Horn our broadcast was preempted today for special coverage of the presidential impeachment proceedings. But we bring you this special podcast addition to talk about the screen actors Guild Award nominations which were announced today and what better person to call on John Horn. WHO's on assignment assignment in New York? Hey John Hey Steven how are you. Okay so let's start with the nominees for outstanding performance by a male actor in a leading role. What do we got so the nominees? He's were Christian. Bale from Ford versus Ferrari Leonardo di Caprio for once upon a time in Hollywood Adam driver from marriage story Joaquin Phoenix from joker car. And then probably the surprise in the category is turned Edgerton. Who Played Elton John and rocket man? If you start looking at who isn't in I think. Probably the most was notable exclusion as Robert Deniro for his lead role in the Irishman. He is getting a lifetime. Achievement Award Screen Actors Guild Award. So maybe that was part of the math but Jonathan Pryce was not nominated from two popes. Adam Sandler was not nominated from uncut gems and also left out of the competition was Antonio Banderas for pain and glory. Yeah it was a little surprised to see Bandera slept out you and I talked about that film and I think we agree that it was kind of career. Defining performance Let's move on to the lead actress. Category Who have their we have Cynthia Areso from? Harriet Scarlett Johansson from marriage story. The neon go from us. Charlie's therein Erin from bombshell and Renee Zellweger from Judy not a lot of surprises there. There were two women of color. The surprise I guess was that that search or Ronin was not nominated for little women some people thought Aquafina might have gotten in from the farewell. In fact little women did really badly today in the screen actors Guild L. Dominations and how about supporting role in the mail categories some pretty juicy performances. There are some really good pegues. Jamie Fox was nominated for Justice mercy. Tom Hanks Sup- Played Fred. Rogers and a Beautiful Day in the neighborhood. A couple of actors from the Irishman Al Pacino. And Joe Patchy and then Brad Pitt from once upon a time in Hollywood I said earlier. Jonathan Pryce was not nominated for playing Pope Francis in the two popes. Anthony Hopkins was not nominated for playing Pope Benedict in the two popes as well and this is also one of those weird categories in terms of. WHO's supporting and WHO's lead? It's one of those things where the studios can kind of say to the screen actors guild and the academy and other words as we think. This person is a lead this person's supporting I mean. They're two popes are mostly onscreen for the the same time. And you have Brad Pitt. Who is up for supporting actor? Leonardo DiCaprio for lead actor and once upon a time in Hollywood. I think he put a stop. Watch on it Leo. Joe Might have like twenty seconds or screen time. I don't know it feels like that's kind of tricky. Math and Tom Hanks's probably star of a beautiful day in the neighborhood. Even though he shares there's Screen time with another character again. The studios got to decide of the actors. Don't vote somebody in that category than they don't get nominated yes. Some people might be especially puzzled by the Tom. Hanks category for him winding up in the supporting actor. Can you explain that a little bit like why why that is well. I think if you look at that that film you can say that even though. It's a movie about Fred Rogers. It's really about the journalist whose life is transformed by meeting with Fred Rogers and something similar happened. In the supporting actress. Category according to Variety Kathy Bates is in this film by Clint Eastwood. Call Richard Jewel rule and she's been getting some awards attention in the supporting actress. Category but according to Variety Warner brothers mistakenly submitted fitted her as a lead actress for the screen actors Guild Awards and she didn't get nominated and she didn't get nominated for supporting actress because they had submitted committed error in probably the wrong category. Well who else do we have in the category of supporting actress. Another pretty strong category. Laura dern from marriage stories Scarlett Johansson another nomination for Joe Joe Rabbit this time and then to actors from bombshell Nicole Kidman and Margot Robbie and finally Jennifer Lopez from Hustler's right. We have so we have Scarlett Johansson nominated for both lead and supporting actress rare A little bit but you know pretty. Good Year for Scarlett Johansson. I don't think you can fault any of those performances. I think they were both really strong. And you know she's playing opposite. Visit Adam driver. Who was nominated for marriage story? Joe Joe Rabbit as we're GONNA say in just a second got a little bit more attention as well so both nominations. I'd say we're served in both. Were in really good films. Let's finish up with the outstanding performance by a cast in a motion picture. Is it true that this winter is often a predictor for the Academy Award Best Picture winner in historically. Yes that has been true but if you look at the last two best picture winner shape of water and green book they weren't even even nominated for the Sag Ensemble Award so yes. It is a good thing to be nominated for in terms of Academy Awards because it's important to note the actress. Branch ranch is the biggest branch in the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. So what the actors do in the screen actors. Guild awards is often a good harbinger of what the Oscar Asker voters might do. So the nominees for on Samba were bombshell. Which I think is a little bit of a surprise? Good news for that film. The Irishman Joe Joe Rabbit once upon a time time in Hollywood and the real surprise in this category was parasite which is a Korean film. It's only the second foreign language film in Sag History. The other one one was life is beautiful to get a nomination for the ensemble award. I think it's really important for parasite. I think it's interesting. THAT MARRIAGE BRIDGE STORY WASN'T NOMINATED FOR ENSEMBLE. Neither was little women and so all the power seemed to be going to parasite right now and I would have to say say once upon a time in Hollywood and the Irishman well there you have it this year's screen actors Guild Award nominations in the film category. John you may resume get your New York theatre going. Thank you Steve. And I'll go do it right now

Democrats raise stakes with impeachment vote
"After weeks of factfinding behind closed doors the house is gearing up to vote on the best way to present it's impeachment inquiry to the public in what will likely be act to the investigation into the president's alleged quid pro With Ukraine the gathering political storm comes amid a flurry of damning testimonies from top officials most recent leap new Tannin Colonel Alexander Finland the Ukraine expert on the National Security Council who listened in on the phone call between President trump and you can Ukrainian presidents and landscape and said the White House those omitted details of the calls in its transcript today to more diplomats take the stand Christopher Anderson and Catherine craft both were for trump's former envoy to Ukraine Kurt Volker who helped the president's personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani contact Ukrainian officials close to President's landscape now former Defense Secretary William Cohen is being closely watching these hearings member of the Judiciary Committee during the Watergate hearings he was one of the handful of Republicans who actually voted for President Nixon's impeachment and now he's calling for politicians on both sides of the aisle to put country before party they the current evidence and he's joining me now from Washington Secretary Cone Welcome to the program good to be with you so I ask you first and I do you think the house and the Senate are in fact going to or have they showed any evidence that they're putting country before politics I think some of them are I believe the the Democrats who are now leading in the house are trying to get at all of the facts is best they can I think they've gone about it the right way and that is to have private hearings or secret hearings in order make sure nothing is classified comes out an open testimony that's what happened during the Watergate era where the Watergate Committee had private hearings before they went public and as a result of those public hearings it certainly educated the American people in terms of what was at stake and then it came over to the House of Representatives we conducted almost all of our hearings in private and only went public when we started to debate the articles of impeachment so this kind of a hybrid here because there was no Senate Watergate Committee investigating a Watergate type committee investigating the president trump and his actions and so it's a hybrid now where the House has been required to go and dig out some of the facts before they go public and then they'll go public I assume within the next two weeks so it's very interesting who are really hammering this this fact that they have been doing their job behind closed doors because they needed to get all the relevant facts before they could go public I mean I assume you're saying that to answer the chorus of criticism from the Republicans and from members of president trump's as that this is somehow as he says it a kangaroo process with everything happening in a non-transparent way well much else what is being said its faults number one Republicans have been in the hearings behind closed doors and the spectacle that we saw last week with I'm forty or fifty Republicans storming the intelligence committee room was just that it was a spectacle because many of those who were storming the who was actually had seats on the inside and could have sat there if they hadn't at any time during the course of all of these hearings so I think it was more for a show that had little to do with the facts and the facts were being gathered by Republicans behind closed doors as well as the Democratic majority and so now will go public and I think it's really important it's not enough to have Robert Muller just read from his testimony what he had gathered as his his finding Wchs it's really important that those who have key information go before the American people be subjected to a critical examination in cross examination so the American public can understand what's at stake and what's at stake is the rule of law and whether or not the president has breached that rule whether or not he has engaged in conduct which in my opinion on its face is impeachable namely to call upon a foreign government a to dig up critical information or dirt on a potential of campaign competitor in the following in next year's race yeah I think that is something which on the face of it would be an impeachable offense I'm let me ask you you mentioned the rule of law that's obviously the fundamental principle of one of the main principles the United States and the democracy that are you concerned that the rule of law itself is under threat and are you concerned that the from the consistent attack on institutions in the United States is having an impact on the democratic process I am during the time of Harry Truman Indianapolis and others it was called you know watching the president that the beginning I think we're present at the end of that process they were present at the beginning of setting up these institutions in the United States and elsewhere which helped to maintain for the most part peace and stability for the past seven years I believe the president trump is in the process of knocking down those pillars and so he feels that he doesn't need any of these other institutional guards such to make that he feels that he alone own can take action without regard to any of the other institutions which are there to make sure that the rule of law stays intact and so that only I can do that assume that has the sound of a dictator or dictatorship where only I can solve this problem I don't need you for consultation I know more than the generals I know more than the ambassadors and I alone can take this action without regard to you congress I don't need you know have to come you and therefore it becomes one man rule now if the president can do that in his first term what we would we expect if he has second term and which has no need to go before the electorate again there's no need to go to Congress to say I'm sorry I broke this rule they'll be no rules that will go on broken in my opinion because he feels that he is above the law that he is the face of the law that he is the face of the Justice Department et Cetera. So I worry about the future as much as I worry about the present in terms of what is happening I want the president to abide by the rule of law and I want Republicans to say Mr President when you step over this line you have to be held accountable you cannot go to a foreign government and ask for assistance against dirt on your future opponent that crosses the line which should not be crossed now whether the majority in the Senate supermajority in the Senate two thirds of the Senate will vote for removal I think at this point is rather doubtful but in any event even if doubtful it is important for the American people to listen to the facts to say you may think it's okay for this president but do you want to set the standard and lower the standards for every other president in the future because what is good for president trump will be good for them and I've always believed I want to look up to the president I want to see the president as a shining example of what the rule of law supposed to look like in America and why we treasure that rule of law because if you don't have the rule of law you have the law of rules and that's something the president seems really more akin to he likes President Putin he likes Kim Jong Hoon he likes presentation paying he likes spreading the Erawan he doesn't much like our allies in terms of paying the same kind of tribute to them that he does to those who the kind of one man rule I mean you've just laid out a pretty alarming scenario I mean if I had to sum it up you pretty much saying that potential elite the United States is is on route to anti democracy I mean almost tyranny you've just said and from from somebody like yourself who's a pretty moderate Republican who served a Democratic president you're not a flame thrower it's pretty alarming I wonder whether former colleagues or current members of Congress whether the House or the Senate listening and you of course signed a letter with with forty four other four most Republicans and others about this issue and yet the Boston Globe has said where are you all where are you all where all the Republican senators or Congress people who who actually did what they had to do according to the rule of law during the Watergate era Where are you all apart from US speaking out like this well many of the Republican Senators with whom I served L. exactly as I do they are worried about where the country is heading I would ask everyone to go back and read Orwell's nineteen eighty-four and look what he was writing about a fictional sense and saying is that where we're headed where you have a Ministry of truth in which you can tell the biggest is and you repeat them over and over again until they're accepted as the truth so you have a situation where the words like a war really means peace or ignorance really means wisdom or slavery is equal to freedom and two plus two week was five when you that's pretty fictional but it's not too for removed when you can have the president of the United States I yeah I wrote this letter and it's a perfect letter and I would say perfectly corrupt in the sense that you're trying to dig up dirt through a country that has beholden to us for its security in order to get that security delivered to them but only if you give this information on Joe Biden and his family and so you keep repeating it's perfect it's perfect perfect and people soon we'll say yeah it is perfect so that's why it's important to have these public hearing so you can have a ambassador Bill Taylor about Yvonne show you can have a lieutenant colonel come forward and say here is what I heard this is why alarmed me and this is why every American and should be alarmed about this because this is not what we do this is not how we act we don't ask we don't ask Russia Russia if you're listening come on in so you can we're open for business that's not something that we can accept which should not accept into the extensive the American people feel it's okay then I think we're headed down they very dangerous past one that every American should be concerned about so let me ask you about the American people because clearly the idea of an impeachment is a very I soon traumatic one for the nation they've been through it once or twice before it's rabbit it's happened and it is traumatic and people I will also say as president trump's allies of said that it's simply an attempt to rob an elected leader of his position do you are you concerned given what we're seeing in polls right now that this could be even more divisive even more traumatic than than than the all of law being upheld well we had the same arguments he met made back during Watergate there were people in the street we had bomb threats at our hearings I had to get special protection for my family as well and the argument was this will tear the country apart and my argument at that point was no it won't tear the country apart there'll be a vice president who will take office of removing the head for head of state for actions that are antithetical to what we believe in will not result and tearing the country apart we'll we'll tear the country apart is if we watched the slow the unraveling of the rule of law in the name of the power of the president and when you confuse the office of the president with the Individual President and His undoing becomes our undoing I tried to make that very clear I believe it's still obtains The president is there a temporary occupant we have our allegiance to who is the office of the President and to the The constitution into the country and so I know the president trump was trying to get members of like Mr Komi the actress FBI? I want you to pledge loyalty to me yes there was no MR president. I don't pledge my loyalty to you I pledge my loyalty to the Constitution. that's something that has been going on now insisting upon loyalty to the person and it has to be loyalty to the office of the president why do you think then sorry to interrupt you but why think then so many Republicans are in fact not doing what you're saying in other words they are pledging their loyalty to him rather than do the pro the the

It's about a young woman who is stuck in a Rut and believes there has to be more to life and then she gets into a car accident. Her dead father comes in and says you're right. There is more to life. I'm GONNA lock he's abilities and and you can experience time and space and a new way. I need you to do this and develop that you can go back and save me because my death wasn't an accident. I was murdered. God all that making the show undone on that's next on the frame weekend. Stay with us. CNN welcome back to the frame weekend. I'm John Horn Amazon. Recently released its first original adult animated series it comes from a couple of writer producers on the Netflix Series Beau Jack Horsemen. Only this show doesn't doesn't have talking animals and it still might be stranger. The series is called. Undone it stars Bob Odenkirk Rosa Salazar and DV digs the creators are Rafael Bob Blacksburg and Kate purdy. How are you guys. Thanks for coming in thank you. I was trying to describe your show to somebody a and I said well it starts with a car accident and she might be visited by her father but he's not around because he might be dead and it pretty much kind of went south and I couldn't figure out how to describe it. How do you describe people kate. I usually say the show is about a young woman who is stuck in a Rut and believes there has to be more to wife and then she gets into a car accident. Her father comes in and says you're right. There is more to life. I'm GonNa lock these abilities and use that you can experience time and space in a new way. I need you to do this and develop this that you can go back and save me because my death wasn't an accident. I was murdered pretty good pitch yeah I mean and then the show explores whether this is happening to her or not and then what is reality and what are perceptions of reality I wanNA play a clip from the first episode of Undone. It's all Ma who's played by Rosa Salazar and she's having a blowout with her sister who played by Angelique Cobra. You WanNa marry read all right. I get it. He's white and he's rich. It's not like him well. What is the point because we're broken. People Okay and broken people break people. No I'm not broken on. I'm not I mean that is such a big idea in this series the whole idea of being broken and about mental health and how you see yourself and whether or not what you see is real bill and I WANNA ask you about why that became such the focus of what you're trying to do with undone for me comes from a personal place my grandmother was schizophrenic and I didn't know her. She died before I was born and so I always worried about my mental health knowing that it runs in the family and then my mid thirties did have a breakdown had depression and anxiety but what was ultimately the most helpful to me was Ir Veda and alternate of healing from shamanistic cultures and indigenous cultures and that shift my frame of reference in terms of thinking about what this could be that I'm experiencing so much narrative storytelling is about to basic ideas stranger erred comes to town or hero goes on a journey and this is something different and that is the conflict comes from with an and you have to dramatize that how how do you go about figuring out how you tell a story where the protagonist and the antagonist almost the same person well I mean the hero does go on a journey and she doesn't go. Oh anywhere. A stranger does come to town. I guess you're right. It has both as well stranger is her father and then part of the tension. The season is is this. My father is a stranger is my father a stranger. I WANNA play a clip from the third episode. This is where almost father who is played by Bob Odenkirk. Kirk is giving a lecture so let's talk about time travel. Theoretically why is time travel impossible come on guys. We talked about this last week. What what is the barrier light speed barrier the white speed barrier. Thank you for GNAWS so does anything move faster than light. Aw Quantum entanglement does want some entanglement very good now. How does this help us with time travel anybody. Eh when I can't find my wallet I blame quantum entangled but this is where the series starts to get really interesting because what you're doing doing with time just in terms of the way the stories unfold is almost like a movie like interstellar whereas like wait in that thing affecting the other thing. What is the wall look. I can your writer's room because I'd love to see what the chronology of these characters lives looks like to to you. It looks like a conspiracy board strings in clippings and charts and postcards and yeah it feels like an eight thousand piece puzzle and you take one puzzle piece away and the whole thing falls apart and one thing we we pushed against a little bit with this idea that we need to explain in everything and we have to start to notice patterns and how these abilities work or how they these visions manifest themselves and I think we wanted it to feel more emotional final intuitive and loose and surprising and lost a little bit of what is happening and how is this happening and never quite getting a handle on it or explaining it. You are Amazon's first original adult animated series. How did you end up there because Bodak is on different streaming service yeah well well. We we pitch this to net flex because that's what we were doing. Beau Jack and that's looks didn't want it to HBO. They didn't want it. Showtime didn't want it who didn't want it. Amazon said we'll ends on and they've been a lovely home and partners and it felt honestly it felt more in line. The kinds of shows is Amazon is making which at the time these these very prickly female focused dromedaries wedding some of my favorite shows on on Amazon or fleabag one Mississippi transparent in this felt very much of a type with those felt like we'd be in good hands there Raphael Bob Blacksburg and Kate Purdie are the creators and writers of Undone.

"Dona was unstoppable on the soccer field and he's widely considered one of the greatest players of all time. That's the call of Maradona's amazing goal in the nineteen eighty six World Cup against England. It was the same game in which he scored the so called hand of God goal where he batted the ball into the net with his hand born in the slums of Argentina Maradona was in many ways unprepared for all the fame and fortune that came his way a new documentary called Diego Maradona follows his life life and soccer career with all its ups and downs it was directed by the British filmmaker Assif Kapadia. His previous documentaries were about the singer amy wine in house and the race car driver Ayrton Senna both of whom died young. Maybe the US fewer people know who the owners around the world. He's pretty huge incredibly incredibly famous person and really for the last thirty years. He's been this Maradona's kind of Legend this myth. This guy hangs out with Fidel Castro. Does some crazy things things you know five guns at journalists he's got he's got a great reputation has been a beast. He's got drug habit so I guess the idea of the film was to show. How did he become that person and all of the films the thing that have in common is why did amy wine-house end up the way she did and to understand. She wasn't always like that. She was an amazing person. Same is center people. May They not know much about him. Then they knew the ending and a lot of places in the world when you try to defined what was his gift as a soccer player. How would you describe describe. It really interesting about Maradona is he's from really poor tough place. He's from the street and he's a street guy and on the pitch which an off the pitch he played he he works and lives roles like a street person so he's got a really unusual body shape. You know he doesn't even look like an athlete yet and because of that he's really small five five his really low central gravity messy similar but messy of the of the era football where you can't touch anyone anyone they fall over to get penalty of Maradona's from old school football when people try and break your legs and actually did break his ankle so he had incredible vision he did on the pitch could see everything that's going on while running really fast with the ball literally stuck to his phone to Madonna detect this girl gum Maradonna's pry. I best known to a lot of people as played for Argentina but the period in this film is largely set in Naples when he's playing for Naples and there's a sports journalist who says in your film. Maradona Naples was the story of his life. How does Naples come to get him because that's an important transition important transfer in his life and the city even apples itself is also very important in the story. Absolutely city of Napoli is a character in this movie. It's like the main thing that kind of needs Maradona. He needs them because he's at a low point. He's kid from age of sixty. Everyone said he's going to be the best player in the world that really comparing him to Pele and he hasn't done anything yet and really he went to Barcelona. Hello now with all this hope. He goes there. He has an awful time. He gets treated pretty badly injured against ill he's also goes out at night. He doesn't train. He doesn't focus and he's kind of famously. No one tells Diego Maradona to even at very young age so he goes to Naples essentially because they're the only team that will buy them but Napoli Naples of the poorest city probably in Europe probably the highest murder rate and crime rate in Europe and high up there in the world massive kind of Comoros gang warfare going on at the time. They've never won anything and they get the most expensive player in the world. Naples is full of streetwise characters and Diego finds his element. He finds the city that he's made for and he does incredibly well with the team and he brings the team up to the championship. The only eight hundred one they've never before and never since two that's why he becomes elevated as the good like character. We're talking with US eve capacity sorry about his new documentary Diego. Maradona people who are supporters of England would remember probably very unfortunately the hand of God goal in the nineteen eighty six World Cup clearance Maradonna with Shelton Donald celebrating and the polls going to be given but what people forget in that game is the other goal he scored which is considered one of the greatest goals in the history of professional soccer and I think it's in the film that to love and hate and to know Jagomir Dona is to see those two goals and you know everything about him. In a way football there's a saying in England and it's a game of two harps and so the film is about the two sides of the in many ways. It's about the beauty and it's about a cheap. He's a genius is a devil. You know you've got it's really loving friendly guy really really lovely sense of humor but he's got an incredible darkness through his personality not as well and so yeah the the the idea of that match really he's achieved a lot in his career but that game against England is reason why he's loved and hated there or is obviously tremendous amounts of footage of Diego Maradona playing football or as we call it football but there's also archive footage that you have in this film that makes the movie. How did you come upon this footage. Who collected it? And where did you find it. In the process of making this documentary somebody got in touch with me saying there is footage out there that we have potentially access to filmed by to Argentinian cameramen who were hired by remember his agent in one thousand nine hundred ninety one when he's really young and this guy thought marathon this can be a star so I'm going to film. It starts filming him with two cameramen who follow him. I'm from Buenos Aires through Barcelona. They go to Naples on the pitch off the pitch. They're in the car when he's traveling. They're the guys filming him arriving at Napoli Stadium that amazing footage you know walking into the Coliseum. The cameraman got fired. Never got paid probably went off with the tapes one hour outside of Naples this guy with a room full of U Matic Itself Video Format from the u matic tapes of Maradona. I've never been seen before how many hours hundreds of hours my producer kind of went through and he came up the number five hundred it could be seven hundred half of the footage. We found out sudden apples then we realize there's more it wasn't all there and we had to figure out who's good and we found out that Diego Maradona's ex wife. You've had it in the trunk in their apartment in Buenos Aires so there were shots in the film where he gets out of a car and the reverse show we found on the other side of the road in Buenos Aires has not yet we've tried. I met him at five or six times when he was living in Dubai. That's where I did the interviews and as we were completing the film. I tried to go to show it to him and that's just when he's team. He decided to leave Dubai and stop traveling the world and he was at the World Cup and I thought that's not a good time to show you this film and he's only just come back to sorry sorry so in the next couple of weeks. I'm planning to to show it to him. Achieved Capote as new documentary called Diego Maradona a Sif. Thanks for coming on the show.

"With that. So the level of emotion there wasn't the said was very very crispy and very tangible because the person that we are talking about was their natural who's there who's directing the movie so it's very unusual that did you find the opportunity to actually play a cartoon does conditions. I asked you earlier about what Pedro taught you as an actor. What did he teach you. And what do you think you're taught him about getting along and about how you treat others about what's important and of our morality. Do you know when business started making movies was nineteen eighty. There was five years after Franco. The detailer in Spain died so the Spanish society at the time interest of morality was very very conservative strong Catholic. You know very very rigid in many different ways. Milomar shake the the whole house in a mayor way. We were dirty people for a while. It was fun for us. Welcome the streets. Sometimes people started his this screaming is because we will inventory of Spain. At the time we would have just perverting morality rejected an artist. We were out of the balks completely. We were just putting homosexuality on the screen in a very explicit way when nobody was doing that in in the UAE doing spe you know if you keep the people in movies is absolutely accepted by everybody. You can do it even in kids movies but if two people from the same sex gotTa keys on screen then people started screaming just pulling their hair off especially at the time in Spain so yes. I learn many things things about life with Pedro because he was pretty natural where he was talking. You know these things I'm putting them in a movie without restriction and with no fear and that meant a lot to me you know because I was not raised like that so many of those spaces were broken by bedroom and he was important but for the Spanish punish cited to have an artist of the caliber who can shake them and just made them reflect Antonio thank you so much pain and glory starring starring on Tonio Bondra's is in theaters now. I'm John Horn and this is the frame weekend and the last few months. There have been a lot of stories debating. What's acceptable? Both in the art we enjoy and the artists who make it we've seen new. SNL CAST member promptly lose his job for racist comments. He made we've seen the film joker and its director. Todd Phillips criticized for making a movie about a mentally ill murderer at a time win. Mass shootings are commonplace which brings us to the idea of cancel culture and the back and forth about what's Okay and not okay and what the penalty should be for offensive behavior here to talk about this with me as La Azadi she writes about pop culture for the Washington Post. Hey La hi. How are you how would did you defined cancel culture? It's become a very loaded term and what it means. Can It depends on who you are. It could be wildly different. Things things could either refer to this sort of mom mentality on line that plays out often on social media or situations since where someone's career is jeopardized because of a bad tweet they put out. Maybe a decade ago or when they were a teenager. That's what it could mean for. Some folks for other other folks. It could also describe how you know. Traditionally underrepresented people are able to use the Internet and social media and sort of the democratization of the Internet to hold powerful people accountable when institutions have failed them in this regard. It's about what are the ethical expectations -tations of an audience when there's a myth mismatch between that and what the person has done or said or the institutions. Donner said then it can kind of lead to this dynamic of of like being quote unquote cancelled but when that expectation is similar then then there's no problem right like if if someone's performing for an audience who likes that and that's their audience audience and that's who's supporting their career than they don't necessarily have to worry about this broader mainstream acceptance. I WANNA play a cut of a a particularly famous comic talking about this subject in the Netflix. Special sticks and stones can guess who it is. I'm doing an impression all right. Let me get the character you gotTA. Guess who it is. Though okay here goes go. Hey if you do anything wrong. Your life and I find find out about it. I'm GonNa try to take everything away from me and I don't care what I find out could be day tomorrow fifteen twenty years from now if I find out your do finished finished who who's then sets you. That's what the audience sounds like to me. That's Dave Chapelle. You are a journalist but you're also a standup comedian and it feels like a lot of the cancel. Culture debates have focused on people either telling jokes or in some cases trying to tell jokes that aren't necessarily funny why his comedy so much at the center of the debate about cancelled culture right now been this conversation within comedy for many decades now about what's offensive what's appropriate. What's it's quote unquote politically correct or not and comedian some comedians feeling very strongly that they have a right to say whatever they want and no one should criticize uh-huh because that's essentially what's happening in a way you know comedy stand up comedy especially just like other art forms packed an unspoken pact between the performer in the audience. The performer can say whatever they want on stage and audience can feel however they want. The audience can express this through laughter through booing through heckling but you know if you're a comedian the in performing for an audience of one hundred two hundred five hundred and there's one or two people who don't like what you're doing as a comedian. You're never gonNA really know about it. The power dynamic really rests with the comedian who has a microphone after all but now in this current social media landscape in the democratization of the Internet twitter social media facebook all these platforms have allowed those one or two or five people in the audience to have much larger voices potentially and to speak at length about why they're displeased pleased why they find this hurtful or offensive at this is a new dynamic for Comedians and they have been struggling. The one thing that does seem to be true about cancelled culture. There is sometimes the cancellation can be pretty permanent. I mean Roseanne was fired by Disney. After a tweet that she put out comparing Obama aide Valerie Jarrett into the offspring of the Muslim Brotherhood and planet of the Apes Disney also fired the director James Gunn from guardians of the galaxy for some old jokes jokes that were crude about sex pedophilia but then they hired him back so it feels like sometimes cancel culture sticks and sometimes it's fleeting. I mean that's why there's an issue with referring to something. As cancel culture is something that is specific and universally understood as such because it could mean so like being canceled cancelled. Well you know Kevin Hart lost the Oscars host. GIG that was a dream of his he backed out of that after some old homophobic jokes per resurfaced but he's doing great financially and he's still embraced by Hollywood in many respects so has he been quote unquote canceled. I don't know and my favorite example of this that raises the question about audience expectations and what takes them. What does it is billy. Bush so the Access Hollywood tape billy Bush is having this very very lewd conversation with then candidate Donald trump billy Bush gets fired. Donald trump gets elected and billy. Bush is back on the air isn't he. He just made a comeback. He's hosting something on Xtra. La Zadi pop culture writer at the Washington Post and she's the CO author of the article a step by step guide to why people can't stop arguing about cancel culture l.

"Welcome to the frame weekend. I'm John Horn on this show we talk with creative people about how and why they do what they do and about how there are impacted by the wider world. We're GONNA start today with Antonio Banderas this weekend. He's in the new Pedro a mold mold of our film pain and glory. It's kind of an autobiographical tale in which displays Salvador he's a famous director who is stuck unable to work riddled with physical and emotional pain in the nineteen eighties. BONDRA's made five movies with Pedro Almodovar including women on the verge of a nervous breakdown which was nominated for an academy award but when Ben Deras left Spain for Hollywood they parted ways for a long long time in two thousand and eleven they reunited for the film the skin I live in and now pain and glory when I sat outside with Bondra's at the telluride film festival of old he told me about how he first met Almodovar's by chance I was at the National Theatre. I was I think it was nineteen. Years old and Petra is nine nine years older than me but I was with a group of actors outside of the theater in a coffee shop Ghafur. He called and this guy came. I always remember that. He came with a red briefcase on. He took over the table. You know a kind of a monologue. He was very funny. I don't remember the way he was talking about but it was it was funny. It was fast. It was very ingenious every comment that he made by the time the WHO was leaving. He just looked at me and didn't I didn't know me. He says you should may movies because you've got a very romantic face and he left sure whatever and so I ask who's this guy and and then some very you know bright mind of the moment said he's name is payroll move over and he just made a movie where he will never do another what and he'll do another dozen or maybe two one show how much time passed between that first meeting and your first working with him not much time because he came same with an actress that actually in the movie for failure. Rod which is an urgent actors that he's in pain and glory to he came with her to the theater to to see what I was doing and at the end of the play he came to my room and he offered me to do a character little character. Ian Lavery into passions wish wish the movie the first movie that I ever made well yeah. What did he teach you as a film actor because you were doing theater at the time Pedro's. I was working almost exclusively making movies. How did he change you as an actor completely because I until that point I it was her a theater actor was my turf. I was surprised that of actors they they can speak very low. Because of course you got a microphone that he's going to pick up your voice so super size of how natural you can be movies versus theater in which you have to play a little bigger life in order to pass the fourth wall so I understood from the beginning. I said I don't know if I am in character but I have to realize there have to be very honest in whatever they do here because these Tory that they have called camera that picks everything. I realized a very very early into game another same time. Pay That was not the most usual sure way to get into movies so you know he was not a classic. He was reinventing cinema because he was invented for himself to himself. There is an introduction to the film night where Penelope Cruz was talking about working with a motive are and about how she would always think that she had one take that was better but he knew what he thought was best and I'm wondering when you're having creative conversations with Pedro about the work or a scene. Is it always his way or the highway. ORSI always win. Always is clear for twenty two years. We didn't work okay so I went to America Eric. I did a number of movies here. After twenty two years he called me back so I got kind of cocky. You know after twenty two years and you know look what I have. Hustler Luke how I act now look how I can manage with my voice and this and that and after rehearsing a little bit just look in and says you know I I am not going to you saw that that you're bringing. I is not useful for maize may be very good for your American directors now for me. So where are you after twenty two year. Where are you were you and so what happened. I confronted him instead of just because my friends I said comment at just may just offer you. They have to bring a so. We did the movie practically practically her movie with two takes. You always Gabriel Taye do a deal way and do it my way of course when I saw saw the movie in Toronto the movie worse he's way but guess what it was better than mine. It was totally better than mine so I have to recognize that ongoing when he called me for this movie. I get an opportunity to actually go. He's way from the beginning no fights. I'm going to trust you. I'm going to trust you from day. One and I wouldn't understand two things why you're making this movie and why you called me to play you. One of the major themes of this movie is reconciliation about trying to atone for mistakes patching touching up differences forgiveness and it's a story about an actor and filmmaker in the film who are reconciled thing and it's also about a filmmaker Pedro Melbourne over and an actor Antonio Banderas reconciling. At what point are you trying to figure out if you're making a move you're telling your own life story or you actually doing the same. He says very seen lion. It's very difficult now very special especially with Federal Malala because both fatal brief seen each cinema everything everything is cinema how much of his life is in this film and where was he in his own personal life when he made Pentagon side of him on in the movie that is very clear which is he's physically better. Who suffer you know and it's interesting what we were going to do the movie it's funny to you know he said to me. Okay Antonio. Do you know you can move because you have your badge. You're going to see that in the movie but very little. I want to see it for very little. I am in pain so little and the guy takes this drug his tongue. I WANNA received very little and they want you to be me but very little. There's a beautiful moment movie. They're almost bus very fast but it's very beautiful is when he's about to be in surgery and the doctor carries team and he says how are you and he said to the doctor. I cannot die here. I am riding again. It's all great. So what did you doing comedy on. Tragedy says life. I'm doing something about live bomb and he'll lose consciousness so talk in a way he just sending a message that I wanNA leave. The movie movie actually is moreover than move over in a way that's seems let me just explain it because I don't think we the only the things that we are human beings. We are not only what we have done and what we have said. We are also what we wanted to save. We never said we are also what what we wanted to do. What we never did we also that those dreams and in this movie peduto brought that up that conversation that he never had with his mother about about homosexuality and about say mums sorry for being in a way that you didn't want me to be but this is me. You have to accept me so those things you know. He never said probably to his mother for sure that scene that you're describing Salvatore is essentially apologizing to his mother who is dying about out not being the son that she wanted him to be is very difficult to watch even us an audience member and yet you're performing in front of a director who through your character is telling the story of how he felt about his own mother. I cannot imagine what it was like to be doing that scene in front of Patriarch for Pedro. Watch that same you know normally. He likes to come to the right before we should seen scene. I'm here with us so he reads the different parts of the actor. Just to give a final indication of final deduction. You know he read the part of my mother and I was censored into him and he gave indications to one of the actors the play that character and that he was going to ruin my part every time that what he was going to go for the line. I couldn't and I said all I need is action now because they know emotionally would have to be because I haven't seen it so. I know how how hard for us to say this goal. I think.

"Ben Darris and Almodovar started making movies together in Spain in the nineteen eighties. After the long repressive regime of General Francisco Franco had ended the films were bold and transgressive for the time with Gay Trans and straight characters and sex and drugs Bandera started acting in American films before he could even speak English in Nineteen ninety-two Co starred in the movie the Mambo kings the following following year.

Mary Achie- trilogy spy Kids and The Mask of Zorro he voiced the character of pushing boots in the Shrek films and in Puss in boots in two thousand and eleven he reunited with Almodovar to make the skin. I live live in Antonio Banderas. Welcome to fresh air. You're so good in this new film and I'm over film. It's really a pleasure to have you on our show. Thank you my pleasure really early in the film. There's a par worker you as in your role as a director who is afflicted with with all kinds of symptoms is recounting his symptoms and I'm actually going to ask for your permission to read the voice over that you do early in the movie. I can't play the voice over because it's in Spanish so I'm going to I'm going to read some of the English translation of it it it it this scene just really grabbed me and we're hearing your voice over in the role of the director that you play and as you're describing symptoms. Tim's that afflict you onscreen what we're seeing is illustrations animations of of the human body anatomical drawings brings and so. I'm going to read some of this voice over him. I got to know my body through pain and illness. I lived my first thirty thirty years with relative abandon but soon discover that my head and what was inside it as well as being a source of pleasure and knowledge also carried with it infinite Senate possibilities of pain I soon became acquainted with insomnia chronic pharyngitis otitis reflux ulcers and intrinsic asthma nerves in general and the sciatic in particular and all kinds of muscular pain lumbar dorsal tendinitis in both knees and shoulders tonight. I have that too wheezes whistles. I also suffer from those. My specialty is headaches and back pain after the spinal fusion operation which what you mobilized half my back I discovered that my life would revolve around my spinal column but not everything is so visible I also suffer vert from more abstract hardships pains of the soul such as panic and anxiety which add anguish and terror to my life and naturally really I've dealt for years with depression that sets up the movie so well physical pain and pain of the saw so and I know Madonna Var suffers from a lot of physical pain Can we talk about that. I did he talk to you about why he wrote those lines and the pain that the character he created that you play resonates for him. Yes of Selene will amend actually suffer practically with for everything that he's just read you know each while those physical problems uh-huh and so when he strenuous to put part of his life you know at front on the screen tell a story he needs. What do you say all of these things you know as establishing a physical map of who he's you know in terms of pain we we actors. We use practically everything to happen in our life to create characters they we create. I suffered a heart attack about two and a half. Vs Ago and was an alert in my life. He's going to say these people need just nothing crazy but he's one the best thing that ever happened in my life because he just gave me an perspective of who I was just make up they important things being on the surface and everything that was not important that I thought he was important but it wasn't unimportant. Yes sunk now by the time I started working with on meloding this movie. That was very close to this event these cardiac. If I had said to me you know. I don't know how to describe a bit but since you have the heart attack there is something different in you. I ninety one to hide. It and I want you to go because if you just show it is is GonNa be very close to all of these pains describing the movie and I warn you there in that in that universe that is absolutely new to me and probably GonNa new us for the expectation for the public to see you in a completely different context. Did he had a heart. Tacconi asks you to do the role. Your character is holding everything in. He's holding in his pain. He's holding in a lot of his emotions while also digging deep into memories of the past and because of the pain is unable to make films or at least she thinks he's unable to make films so you have to communicate a lot just by the way you hold your body and your face face in your eyes and that's it's a very I I would imagine that's a very hard thing to do. within the movie we eventually learn that your character director has been writing a monologue and he wants an actor friend of his to perform it and after re re they had a falling out like. I don't know twenty years ago or more and they had a falling out while this actor was being directed by your character and when they come together after your character asked him to perform the monologue they're talking about like how to convey the drama and the pain that is going to be expressed and I forget whether the director says to the actor or the actor says that another after I told him this but it was basically don't overdo it with the sadness. Hold back the tears. That's the best way of expressing depressing it. was that advice Madore gave to you or that. Another director had gone into you yep he. He he calls Sern Sern that Indie a humid emotion way humid and he said he always said to me. You know I mean what emotions that actors we. Would you guys love to cry because you think he said they must station. Did you real and but he does another trick sometimes too there are he said to me once that he knew an actress she can cry and for from her right eye off from her left eye. so that's a trick. You can do do that and you can apply all the reality that but he's not. I prefer actors who actually hold back the tears hove the motions you know that they are more. Liz bassy Morton's parent more economic. That's probably the word and you know Economic Kenedy emotions and he that's being a constant in over which sometimes contradiction because people think on minorities have a little bit bigger the life you know he he suspicious in Audi minivan callers example in framing but but then he is very measured with the actors he liked the actors to be you know you know in a way more you're in the way that he dre movies and he has to do with the movies that were done in the forties and fifties so. I just want to get back to the fact that you had a heart attack. A couple of years before making a movie and you said a nurse in the hospital told you the heart not only pumps blood throughout your body. The heart is a warehouse for feelings things and that you should expect to be sad for a few weeks or first few months following the heart attack and having stents put in an in a moment wondering if that happened if you were said and having been told in advance to expect being sad was helpful to you yeah. I can tell you about mine because there are thousands of way that you can have a heart attack in my particular case. Ah You know yes now. Woman came to me was unnerved. The hospital and she said that she totally she was right on yeah. I uh-huh became not only very sad very sensitive sensitive to anything I am not a crier. I never cry. It was a tough guy and suddenly I was watching movies and I was listening to music and Sunday. They got all deary. Yeah is headed you feel very vulnerable and you are totally understand astounded that he's only once one thing that is absolutely perfect which is deaf and that is certain and everything else is relative. I guess is Antonio Banderas. He Stars in the New Pedro Almodovar movie pain and glory. We'll talk more after break..

"Now. This makeup is meant to be his actual actual face. He fell into a VAT of toxic chemicals and now looks this way which is what walk us through the evolution we're seeing now from from from nine hundred sixty s TV joker to Nicholson Tim Burton joker the difference between what's on Jack Nicholson in Batman as compared to us. He's Romero Merrill. I mean whether it's Larry's first of all is again like a clown white. He's got green hair you know his lips are painted red but he's actually wearing a former appliances plus thanks to give him that smile look at kind of blends into the cores of his mouth and gives them a little bit and then easily easily billfold area to try to get a permanent smile without going with the big ts say this all the time. You know. It's not what I would have done in many times. When I see my movies I go. That's not what I would do now. Now that I've seen the movie you know but like what what wouldn't you done too much prostatic static scoring on here in the faith. I would try to have stuck teeth in them. You know I mean I would have gone for Conrad Vitamin this would maybe a little a little bit of Hinna those an easily a hopeful smile kind of things but not as much as this. I mean some angles I think it looks a little funny sticking out and kind of natural. This is not your your favorite but it's not your least favorite. I this is definitely a step up from this Romero and the next big makeup leap for the joker comes in two thousand eight in Christopher Nolan's in my opinion great version of Batman the Dark Knight He Ledger Plays Joker for which he he won an Oscar. Posthumously you look nervous is it the scars allowing them wife got these smudged black is but still though the white face and red lips but it's all a mess and deliberately a mess clearly something the character applied unlike. Jack Nicholson's listens joker which I found very cool describe what from your expert point of view we're looking at here. You know the thing was I mean the joker we never cutting wii was white and like that in had basically like clown makeup kind of a thing you know and I I always took it as it was supposed to be the a byproduct of what happened to him falling in toxic waste kind of thing you know bleached skin out not so much that he actually applied makeup. You know this one. You you know is like you know. He has supplied makeup but it's you know he's insane in. It's an it's an insane way to apply it and he letters joker. Here has some prosthetics six. I guess that scarring where his mouth was sliced open but nothing too extreme yeah I mean as the scars Stephanie Compliance. That doesn't doesn't bother me that he doesn't have the teeth because they kind of reinvented. You know the the smile was her. How did they get the scar thing. You know not you. You know falling in toxic waste your no like a piece car my father yes. I mean there. There was a kind of plausibility to the madness that there's make up to me conveyed. You know I I almost imagine some crazy person in a dark night looking like this no I agree. I think this was a perfect makeup for this film and it's one that I really like and and mainly because if he pledges performance more than anything so then in two thousand sixteen jared Leto steps into the role for the ensemble DC Super Villain movie suicide squad Blah Blah Blah Blah all of that she chats GonNa. Can I get oh my God so this joker I is more sort of a glam joker than others a bit Marilyn Manson ask silvery skin tattoos red lipstick and silver caps on his teeth to to match the jewelry chains. He wears what what did you think of this. Take on joker. People were judging it before they saw the film and I did as well no but I actually thought well you know. I don't think this is a bad concept for a modern movie a modern version the joker the fact that he's got the tattoos. He's got the a grill for the teeth. You know and I really like that. They got this early bright car for his hair. You know I think this makeup fits this film again and that's the important thing you know and that's one of the things I hate about the Internet where people will judge things before they even see the context of what it was made for so that's interesting. I mean and jared Leto does inspire a lot of strong feelings. Ill will on the Internet and elsewhere so I'm glad to hear you're not a hater of this version shen no and I think for the film I think it was appropriate so the new Joaquin Phoenix joker movie is so new. Oh you've seen the trailer but of all the movie jokers you've fully consumed your rick. Baker's favorite makeup well. I mean it's it's tough. I mean because the reality is Conrad. Bite really wasn't playing the joker but I I would vote for Conrad Bite. I just love the look of that the the big teeth and the white face and the crazy hairstyle and he just had a great face but performance wise. I mean Heath Ledger is nailed it an end now you you know he he may get knocked off from Joaquin. We'll see Rick Baker. I really appreciate this. It's been great talking to you. I've admired your work of course course for forty years and congratulations congratulations on the new book as well. Thank you very much. It was nice talking to you that that book too big sumptuous coffee table volumes documenting makers movie makeup career. It's called metamorphosis and you can pre-order it.

There's this incredible range of characters. You've played over these thirty five forty years. ailing filmmaker kicking heroin mad scientist gay terrorist is part of the attraction that you're going to get to do all kinds of things that you don't know if you can do with him.

They're all those basis. If you don't try to lie to the audience you find right so I have done all of those just because I am an actor and that's what I am. I love those actors that in the old days in Spain they used to lay the sucrose people I need to morning.

What's your name. My Name's Liz something special about you author. I could the way from right here in the city with my mother. She says I was put here to spread joy after the movie jokers backstory before he's Batmans Nemesis. He's a sad guy named Arthur flack living this sad existence in Gotham. WHO's one dream was was to become a comedian Murray one small thing when you bring me out can you introduce me as joker he failed in that dream and descends into madness and finally becomes the spectacular psycho clown killer terrorizing the city and as Arthur flack transforms over the course of the movie so does his look. I mean it's basically clown. Makeup isn't it Whiteface Red Nose Red Lips you know some blue triangles finals around his eyes and a couple of red eyebrows. This is Rick Baker. One of the Great Hollywood makeup virtuosos who is here today day to explain and critique the evolution of the jokers various onscreen looks over the years that have led to Joaquin Phoenix's Freaky freaky clown for higher whose face was designed by makeup artist Nicki Ledermann. It's obviously supposed to be makeup because you see making himself up but not very well which kind of helps make it creepy you know it's Kinda symmetrical and smeared and and he's insane so that's insane guy probably would do it. Rick Beggar has been one of polly was few Goto transformative makeup guys for forty odd years so many films he's worked on such as turning Eddie Murphy into an old Jewish guy in coming coming to America you know from funny pass and several years later turning Eddie Murphy into six different members of the clump family for the nutty Professor Lis Lis job that won him one of his seven Oscars for best makeup bickers got had a particular knack for other worldly makeup creations lots of the aliens in the original Star Wars cantina scene a in Tim Burton's planet of the apes his big breakthrough came in nineteen eighty one the product of a painstaking complex days long shoot in which the actor David Naughton slowly slowly and painfully morphs into a Werewolf in an American Werewolf in London without and thereby creating the new prototype for cinematic human to beast transformations without any computer cuter effects at all. You still see movies today derive from that scene of Baker's before America will I had to try to beg people to let me do something in cool you know when I put mustache and a scar on this guy and say no no after American Werewolf I started getting scripts with stuff in which which is like how the hell am I gonNa do this. I mean people seem to think that we could do anything then and as for the joker I'm obsessed with makeup and monsters and and he's one of those you know Baker hasn't transformed any actors into the joker but last year he did create a limited edition bust of the character for its owner.

That's the actor Antonio banderas talking about meeting this guy in Madrid a young film director name Pedro Romanova and I was outside of the theater in a coffee shop some of the other actors of the play and this Mang with our red red briefcase appeared over their city with is without even introducing himself news. I'm over members of company and so he started throwing these modern log. That was very funny. I don't remember why he talked but I remember that I laugh. He was ingenious fast. He's a lot of irony and cynicism cynicism to as well. After twenty minutes of forgiving is this only. He stood up to leave. You've looked at me and says you should do movies. Revenue from antic phases should be in movies go by a he left and I asked somebody who this guy and they said to me. He's name his bedroom. Were he made one movie and he will never made another one. I I saw him in again like three or four weeks. After he came to see the play and at the end they came to my room money he offered me a movie called Labyrinth of passion and I the time. I never did move it before so I said to him. Basically I'm here actor. I have never done we. We had an economic to expectations. All you do theater. You'll be fine movie. I will then act you. Don't worry everything's fine okay. Since then Antonio Banderas Pedro Almodovar have made a bunch of movies together five pretty much back to back in the one thousand nine hundred and Spain but then a two decade hiatus while bond eras pursued his Hollywood career Philadelphia with Tom Hanks Vida The mask of Zorro the spy kids movies put boots and on and on now he has again reunited with director who discovered him for the terrific new film pain and glory there eighth. He plays an older complicated filmmaker. A character closely based on Almodovar the Almodovar of our esque character in pain. Glory has medical problems heroin habit flashes back a lot to his childhood and reunites with long long lost friends and lovers and collaborators. I would describe the film ascend the story of a man who is an artist who sound movie that actor who actually ace this going back in time in order to closer to Winston were left open to reconciliate with himself to come to terms with certain artem people and and basically the movie is that in the middle of that these reflection of art movies in particular learn animal life right you to have known each other for almost forty years so was playing this character inspired by him this version in of him when he came to you and said hey you. WanNa do this was that enticing scary awkward what all of all of it well relieving to me because the last movie I did with him was nine years ago one of the skin leaving this ghastly weird vengeance movie about plastic surgeon more all only. I'm before that for twenty two years with water yes so I arrived to the ski living and I'm going to just go back to ninety because the creation of this character started there without even mean knowing you know when I got there the rehearsal of movie director who rehearsed and rehearsed for a long period we just weeks month proud to preserve orphee but I have right there after two years in America you know I have learned Emma Bunch of things. Pathogen Oi just behave in front of a camera in a different way more secure viewer. I can use my voice his way in an after grownup acting and so after a week of her says to me you know all of those things is your land there. I cannot not use those things that are not really for me. So where are you. He has me and now the time instead of actually answering that question. Show tried to answer that question. I thought Oh my God why he so harsh me. You know I'm GonNa all my boss. I'm just GONNA use you know on the things that have learned to find my Carlton Attorney. No but you know it creates tension on the set anyway we finished shooting and then I saw the movie in the Toronto Film Festival and I saw tonight couldn't believe that he managed to bring out of me accredited that I'd eating giving Roy at inside so that point I said Oh i should be able to be more humble than that. I should open my ears and my eyes and listen to people that especially people that I trust and I trust remorse than doing movies within one was forty years ago. Oh I'm not going to have an opportunity and to work with him and a decade later. You came one day that he called me on the phone. He's GonNa send you this is this critical pain and glory and you're GonNa find a bunch of references that have to do with our lives. You know in the eighties movies that we did at that time and you're I'm. GonNa find very familiar. I saw I called him after they read this creep in loved it and I said listen. I'm going you know Clinton. I am GONNA use all the tools that have been using this year. I want star something absolutely neo WanNa start from scratch with you and I wanNA listen listen to you and I wanNA know basically. Why do you want to do this movie and why you called me to play you so in terms of the character director the Almodovar character you play it doesn't particularly resemble him in the way he moves or talks. No no I you know. He surrounded surrounded characterizing. The physicality of it. You know they had is very similar to the hill uses the all the costumes callers. He got an exact replica replica off his apartment but then he came to the pointing h he said to me one day under her save you use some of my mannerism for the car you you can do it. We have to stop being that. I don't think I should do that. I think I should create a character from the inside out. If I just try to imitate you you going to be a performance any Dacian when I'm thinking the right way to attack. WE'RE GONNA lose points there right. We should just do another deborah creation and yeah he says okay so we started working in that aspect in completely different how is working with him. The actual work on the set making the movie. How is that different with him than all the dozens of other directors. You've worked with Petra Malory's a very tough night. It's not easy working with him. He's deputy demanding ending very meticulous. He knows exactly what he wants and he's not. GonNa let you go in different directions. You can bring things but audion. You know you have to go and understand what he's trying to do and getting a line with him. If you don't do that you're GonNa have a hard time. Does he get better performances out of you than other directors. I think so I think so but because he he doesn't allow you to go off the truth. I mean and especially now I suppose age to you know there is a moment when you get to a certain age in that place as to it already which is only space for the truth on this. You know everything is looking stupid editor if he can searching for that because time is short yeah yeah another thing that strikes me as interesting. Is this character that you play. is gay. You are not but many of the characters you've played for. Pedro who is gay are gay because why I don't know but I don't have any problem and with that. I never did have a problem to gay people now because I have a problem with that because straight people aren't supposed to play gay people these days. I don't know I receive in a war in two thousand six by the course called the glad that word by Geico community because the way that I represented them right right and I am very proud of and so I tried to do it with you know flair and you know try to just give my soul.

"La Opera the map has resigned following allegations of sexual harassment and assault then Antonio. BANDERAS got his start with filmmaker Pedro Almodovar. They didn't always see eye to eye but now they've made their most personal film yet for twenty two years. We didn't work okay so I went to America aid number of movies that after twenty two years he called me back so I got that kind of cocky look Hawaii now and after rehearsing a little bit. You just look mainly says you know I am. GonNa use sold that you're bringing in all that coming up on the frame. Placido Domingo resigned today as General Director of L. A. Opera he he has been under a cloud since the Associated Press reported in two stories over the last two months about decades of sexual harassment and assault allegedly committed committed by the opera legend several organizations around the country canceled appearances by Domingo in the wake of the reports but L. A. Opera kept him on board food while launched an investigation that was being conducted by an La law firm joining me to talk about Placido Domingo's resignation as Jessica guilt. She's a staff writer later at the L. A. Times Jessica welcome to the show Hi John. Thanks for having me so I often today's resignation come as a surprise because Domingo in L. A. Opera seemed like they were prepared for the investigation to be carried out. Yeah it didn't it didn't particularly in light of what happened last week at the Metropolitan Opera in at the last last minute less than twenty four hours before the show was supposed to open Placido Domingo dropped out of the mets production of Macbeth and that seemed to happen under pressure after a story that weekend broke by NPR that stated at Peter Gal the Met Opera Chief had held a closed-door meeting with employees please in which he said that they were going to keep Domingo's in their production because the allegations made by twenty women in the to a piece stories could not because unquote corroborated and that opened up just a pretty serious firestorm and it was shortly after that that plus it'd go issued his statement meant that he was going to pull out of Macbeth at the Metropolitan Opera and after that happened. It really felt like it was a matter of time you know 'cause Elliott kind of was the last company standing in America that hadn't sort of pulled its support placido at that point and so we knew it was probably coming. We just didn't know when there are a couple of investigations going on the L. A. Opera is doing its own. There's also an investigation from the American guild of musical artists do we no the status of those investigations and whether or not they'll continue yes the investigation being conducted by debris gang which is a private practice lawyer in the former the US attorney for the southern district. Yes Gibson Dunne in culture when Demingo issued his statement that he was resigning Ellie Opera. CEO Christopher Cole also sent a letter out to opera employees stating that they may have questions about that investigation but they felt it was very important that that investigation reaches its conclusion and and similarly we reached out the times reached out to the American guild of musical artists about their investigation and they confirm that that investigation despite goes resignation will continue they stated they owe it to their members to continue that investigation and they encourage members have information to to reach out and the same goes at Elliara so there will still be resolved coming down the line from both of those investigations so in the United States organizations in San Francisco in Philadelphia Adelphia in Dallas and New York were recinding invitations for to Mingo to perform but in Europe. It sounds if those appearances haven't yet been canceled and there are playing tours and appearances. What do we know about what is going on in Europe and where Mingo might actually perform in the coming year so it seems that his calendars pretty packed with upcoming performances not only in the fall but going into next year in Switzerland and in Russia Austria Germany Spain Italy none of these things Poland none of these appearances peer to have been cancelled and that's kind of in in keeping with what R. Classical music critic witnessed in Austria in late August after the allegations first broken the A P where Domingo's received gives a standing ovation it seems that at least in Europe right now they're standing behind Demingo now to Bingo has not been charged with or convicted victim of any crime but the pattern of behavior that has been described by the Associated Press is eerily similar from each woman and yet to Mingo today didn't apologize what he said was quote recent accusations that have been made against me in the press have created an atmosphere in which my ability to serve serve this company that I so love has been compromised basically sounds like he's arguing that these allegations are getting in the way of his work not that there might be some merit to what these women saying yeah. He has denied these allegations from the beginning in fact after the first allegations came out. He said that he felt that his overtures to women had been misinterpreted. He said he believes his interactions and relationships were always welcomed and consensual mm-hmm and then he went on to say in his first statement after the allegations first broke that he said quote. I recognize that the rules and standards by which we are and should be measured against today are very different different than they were in the past and that got a lot of people up in arms because they felt yes that he didn't apologize in that he was kind of excusing behavior that even in the past people felt he should've known better nonetheless he threw his spokeswoman has stood his ground on this and I believe is looking to to clear his name still I also will add that the statement from the executive committee of the L. A. Opera didn't go much further and they said quote Plethora Domingo's contribution Russians to the cultural life of Los Angeles have been unprecedented and profound it goes on to celebrate his work and not really address some of these allegations that served it does leave a void in opera and I think it's fair to say that it does leave l. A. Opera in a bit of a bind as Domingo was the company's Co founder. I think that they are really biding their time and waiting to make any comments regarding the allegations until the conclusion of that investigation when they had their season opener of La Boheme was very notable that nothing said at all about plus it'd Mingo not even during a black tie gala ball after the opening night Mark Stern Chairman of the board said nothing. Nobody even addressed the elephant in the room so to speak speak so they've been holding their cards very close to their chest. I think until they find out more Jessica guilt is a staff writer writer at the L. A. Times Jessica. Thanks for coming on the show. Thank you so much for having me. John Coming up next on the frame.
