"Have been a number of significant winners at the Oscars Awards ceremony in Los Angeles. Yes, it's been an Oscars, unlike any other with covert restrictions. In effect, the 93rd Academy Awards has bean celebrating some of the best films. The past year on the red carpet for us, Peter Bows and Tom Brook. Peter, could I start with you? We've We've just found out what the best picture is. Yes, And the best picture is no model on this is the phone that is long being the favorite to win Best picture at the Academy Awards, Directed by Closure Oh, the Chinese filmmaker, she becomes the first woman of color to win best director at the Oscars, and we've just in the last few minutes heard that Frances McDormand has won for best actress for her starring role. In this film, so it really is quite a feat for this phone that tells the story of a group of nomads. It's partially scripted but partially real life because there are some non actors alongside Actors in this film that is set around or shortly after the financial crash of 2000 and eight these people who have lost everything because of what happened in the financial world, going on a journey and the western United States to try to earn some money through some odd jobs. I'm with here in Los Angeles, Tom Brook from the BBC's talking movies. Show and Tom, This is movie has so much better than people thought it has. I mean, it's got through. You know, Matt Land has three trophy is interesting in Frances McDormand, just one for best actress. This is her third Oscar. That I think puts her on a par with Meryl Street, but she doesn't have as many as you. Neither haven't many is. Katharine Hepburn did really good performance from Frances McDormand. I mean, she's most definitely One of American cinema's most reliable and charismatic, leading ladies on this film has done well. It's really the night does belong to note belong to Nomad land so far, and a very diverse night. If we look at these supporting actor and actress categories, both won by actors of color. That's very true. Daniel Cholula, who is British and black, one for best supporting actor and best supporting actress, with one by year Young Eun, who appears playing a grandmother in the film minority, So a very diverse night. Interestingly it's been a good night for women, I think particularly because We had Chloe Zhao winning for best director but also in original screenplay. Emerald Fennel, the British filmmaker. She won in that category That's normally thought of as a male preserve. So definitely progress on just briefly all of this, of course, taking place with the backdrop of covert 19. With the Oscars ceremony taking place at two venues that train station in downtown Los Angeles on the Dolby Theater just very quickly breaking news. Anthony Hopkins has won the award for best actor for his role in the phone. The father Thank you. Thank you. No one expected that you got them both the best picture and the best actor. We really appreciate it. Tom Brooke and Peter bows on the red carpet in Los
Sharon Stone Discusses Her Autobiography in Candid Interview
"It's nearly 30 years since Sharon Stone played Catherine Tramell in the film Basic Instinct. It was a role she craved, but only managed to get after 12. Other actresses turned it down. It became a huge box of his hit on that infamous uncross ng and crossing of the legs scene remains one of the most controversial and talked about moments in film history. The movies that followed include an Oscar nomination for her role in Scorsese's casino alongside Robert DeNiro. More recently, the Laundromat with Meryl Streep on on the small screen. There was last year standout performance in the Netflix series, Ratchet. At the height of her career in 2001, having had several miscarriages on day after adopting her first child, Sharon Stone, suffered a stroke and almost died. She's now written her autobiography, the Beauty of Living twice in it. She talks about the fact that some people saw her as a very strong, difficult woman and how upsetting that's peanut times as she told the BBC's Emma Barnet. We think what it really is, is that I don't have the capacity to lie, and I think that people find that quite off putting And when I tell the truth that can seem quite offensive or the favorite Hollywood word difficulty. I do feel that in business. We're often put in positions that we didn't ever see ourselves being put in. And they're often crisis moments where we have to reconsider. I'm in this position. Now. What am I going to do with regards to the me to movement? Now are a couple of years on from that deep do you actually think Because the other thing you talk about being the only woman on set, you know men were doing your hair. Men were doing your makeup. Do you think it has got any better? Yes, because legally, they're just things that cannot be explained away anymore. You just can't say why can't she have a female dresser?

"Welcome alex i. It's great to have you here to talk about viola. I'm so excited to hear your picks but first a little bit of background viola. When she won her first oscar for best supporting actress for fences and twenty seventeen. She became the first black person to win the so so-called triple crown of acting a competitive advantage emmy and tony award because of this in how omnipresent she's been over the last decade including her turn in the blockbuster period piece the help and as the shady complicated lawyer least keating in the long running series how to get away with murder. It might be easy to forget that. She has more than paid her dues to get where she's at. Now she graduated from juilliard in nineteen ninety-three and bounce between theater and screen throughout the rest of that decade by the early offs. She'd become a reliable supporting actor. Popping up in steven soderbergh movies like solaris and playing rations on the mom rule or the urban professional. She spoken candidly about how being dark skinned. Black woman has impacted her career like in this interview. She did with tina brown in twenty eighteen. I have a career that's probably comparable to meryl streep julianne moore. Let's sigourney weaver. They all came out of jail. They came out of juilliard. They came on nyu. They had the same path as me and yet i am nowhere near them. Not as far as money not as far as job opportunities. Nowhere close to

Pastry, Politics, and Pivots
"Seven years ago about this time I was in Fort Lauderdale Florida. I didn't live there but I was given a one way ticket and I flew into the city. I didn't know a single soul but I knew I would touch the lives of thousands. By the time I left in five days so what was going on seven years ago around this time. Barack Obama and Joe Biden were running for reelection and I was part of their advanced team that carried out their events across America. Pretty cool job right. How did I even get it? Well much like the food industry. The world of politics is a small one and I got my connection from my first job out of college working for Nancy Pelosi doing her first speakership in the US House of Representatives. Now I'm not a political junkie. I never was never will be. So why did I take a job so central to it all for the next four years my office would be in the capital and my office view of The Washington Monument? That on so why this damn working for the first female speaker of the House was going to be interesting. Here was a woman in a position with no precedent and now she was second in line to become president in a world built by men founded by men. What was she going to do? How was she going to act? All eyes were on her scrutinizing every move and for me as a young female professional in my early twenties observing. How she embraced. This role was going to change my life and my outlook of women in power across all industries. So what was it like working for Nancy? Pelosi Meryl Streep Playing Anna Wintour in the devil wears Prada's a fairly accurate description of my typical workday. There was energy in the office when she got to work. The kind that made you put your shoes back on your suit jacket so you look presentable. At all times. She was a tough loss with us. Her staff and the two hundred thirty three Democratic members that she represented in Congress. You left every meeting with her feeling like you weren't doing enough. She had goals and she knew how to carry them out. She made decisions with such force and directness that you did not question the outcome and these decisions were big like providing all Americans with healthcare and reviving that American banking system. Pelosi wasn't power and neither we or she doubt that. But in this position making monumental decisions is one thing getting others onboard to make them reality is another and the longer I worked for her the more. I noticed what she did to make that happen. No detail too. Small gop pastor because every detail was important where someone sat at a meeting who was included in a phone call even the order in which someone was introduced at an event and every choice. She made no matter how small was the right one and it was genius. She recognized that it was the details that counted for each person. It was her secret she could make. People feel counted recognized human. It was hospitality. She could remember the details of people's lives the names of spouses children grandchildren enquiring about your health. And following up on it she would write handwritten. Thank yous and well wishes for important events. She lended a human touch to the role of speaker. And I am telling you that is how she has gained the loyalty of those that she leads. How did she become speaker of the House again? It's not because of tactical skill. It's because she's found ways to connect with you as a person my four years working for her help me see what women are capable of at the highest levels of leadership and pressure and that one of the most important qualities that we have more so than our counterparts is that we are better at nurturing relationships and it is a quality that we should embrace in our leadership roles as for me. I didn't have to tap into this just yet in my professional life because things were about to change. How did I pivoted from politics to pastry? It wasn't so much pivot as it was the ground shifting below me as a result of the two thousand eleven elections. The Democrats lost power of the House. Speaker Pelosi lost her post and I lost my job and remember when I said I wasn't a political junkie. Losing my job. Was the universe telling me to stop living someone else's dream that I had other interests and now the curtain was lifted. It was nudging me towards something that I was a junkie about food. Baking had always been a hobby for sure but it was hardly the source of my career. Change it was the wider world of food that drew me in and being curious about food was my hobby. Was there an article about a farmer who is growing apple varieties from the days of George Washington? Was there a documentary about how Vitnamese I started making fish sauce? I watched it and was there a recipe calling for fresh coconut mill. You better be sure. I went out bought a coconut and smash it on my kitchen floor with a hammer. So during this period of unemployment I realized I needed to take this eagerness to learn about food and turn it into something tangible and so I thought might as well make it my job and there was. I was twenty nine years old when I made the switch. Twenty nine years old is when a cook has been cooking in a kitchen for ten years and becomes an executive chef. I was old and new at the same time and I knew I needed a fast track my career so my strategy was twofold to work in the best restaurants in the world and travel and in a span of five years. That's what I did from Chicago to New York across the Pacific Ocean to Asia in Australia. I did not stop I went to school. I stashed I worked. I worked for free. I worked in countries that I legally wasn't allowed to. I sacrificed my my finances and my family and poured my heart and soul into experiences that I opened myself up to because there is nothing more I wanted to do. This was it then. I became a chef. I was a cook became a chef. But really that's just title but it is a title that screams a responsibility to lead. And now I thought how do I want to lead? What kind of leader do I want to be? I'm a woman an ethnic minority of an immigrant family entering late into an industry dominated by men. How many predecessors do I have to look up to not enough? That's for sure but I had to remember. I had the ultimate example to look back on speaker. Pelosi did not see herself. As the first woman in a man's job she simply saw herself as the best person with the skills intellect and humanity for the job and this is what enabled her to be speaker as she saw fit without second guessing herself in regards to her gender and she has become one of the most effective speakers in recent history because of that Donald. Trump will see that for himself soon. Enough I am Sherwood. It and the key to her longevity leadership recognizing the little details that make up our humanity to cultivate loyalty. That is her strength. And that is how I want to lead. Coincidentally we as an industry are in a period of time where we are re evaluating how we treat people gun should be the days of physical verbal mental abuse treating people as they weren't people at all. We can still demand perfection and excellence. But how do we do it in a more dignified way? There's no easy and is going to take a long time for us to change our culture but I do believe women are the ones with an sinks to shape it into something better. How just like my old boss? Look for the details finding humanity and lead with it.

Let's get back to our interview with Carrie Fisher recorded in November number twenty sixteen. She died one month later on December twenty seventh the following day December. Twenty eighth her mother. Debbie Reynolds died. Your mother is Debbie Reynolds. You had a very contentious relationship with her when you were a teenager. And I think that probably continued into your twenty s and that you know you worked in her her Broadway show you were you were in the chorus of that. He Sang in her Broadway. Act You know in her cabaret act for a while so you work together the other in some ways you were very close in some ways like very far apart you were anxious to move away from home. How did your relationship change as she became an older woman? Like when you became elect now like your middle-age cheese or or or older. She's in her eighties. What's is the relationships? Contentious says a chain. Not at all I can appreciate. She's an immensely powerful woman and I just admire my mother very much. She also annoys me sometimes when she's mad at the nurses but you know she's an extraordinary every woman extraordinary. There's very few women for her generation. Who worked like that? Who just kept a career going all her life and raise children and had horrible relationships and lost all our money and got it back again? I mean she said an amazing in life and She's someone to admire. Did you appreciate her strength. And her accomplishments more as you got the older the whole God. Yeah when I was a kid I just thought she was someone who was telling me what to do and I didn't WanNa do it. How did you you feel about her celebrity? When you're young? Was it helpful. Was it intrusive. Well it I had to share her and I didn't like that when we went out people sort of walked over me to get to her and no. I didn't like it. I didn't like it and I you know people thought that I overheard someone saying what she thinks. She's so great because she's Debbie Reynolds daughter and and I didn't like it made me different from other people. I wanted to be the same I wanted to be. You know just no Jeffrey than anybody else. Your mother's most iconic film is singing in the rain You know one of the great musicals of of all time. What are your your thoughts about the movie and if you like like it now did you always or did it? Take you awhile to appreciate that film. No I always liked it. It's brilliant Irene to to do the transition from sound from silent to sound is a brilliant brilliant time to focus on and what was interesting interesting to me is that there's three people acting in the movie then it's two men and a female and the same with Star Wars and both movies were sort of a conic at well would they did the five ten top films and one was singing in the rain and one was star wars. That's so great. You're on the list together. I know you're right that you felt doomed to have bad relationships with men. That's what you've seen Eddie Fisher. Your father walked out on your mother when you were to to be with. Elizabeth Taylor Your mother's second husband Spent all her money. I mean left her with nothing the left her with nothing and and she had to pay his jets so future earnings went to him. Everything she made went to his jets to Harry Karl who was also having sex with hookers the entire length of their relationship which she found out later on. So did we so. It was a very interesting childhood so when women dressed like you at comecon conventions what do you most frequently see reflected back at. You like which which costumes which hairdos my favorite one. To see is the Metal Bikini on men that is happening a lot. Oh absolutely absolutely a lot and not thin men by the way that's hilarious.

I don't know what you'd sing or how you well it would be a very show I don't know I I don't really does that. A warm up. It's like okay. Well one Christmas I remember when I was twelve.

Oh holy night in French and Merrill Sing it now and I have never if I ever have to play a person who is Over come with fear and terror. I go back to that moment because I was just. I hadn't had any any trouble singing in the in the Christmas concert but standing in the living room in front of my whole family all my you know so annoying brothers and my cousins and everybody looking at me.

Debbie Reynolds is a singer and performer. who was big and musicals in the fifties and sixties? You've been living with her. There's a party at her place and you're asked to sing. It's funny that I spoke about my that moment in my grandmother's house because it was very similar Shirley maclaine plays my mother. She makes me do this. And I've just gotten out of Rehab and a my characters very tender and raw and she kind of more or less forces made it to get up in front of all these people and sing so that's very deflected and sort of a lot of excuses built into singing something that actually means something and and still. It's almost this little tiny voice from from somewhere deep inside in that her mother gets up and sings Stephen Sondheim. I'm still here and throws her legs up on on the piano and the red sequined dress and it's just blows her daughter out of the water once again I really liked her performance in that.

She's the author of I'll have what she's having. How Nora Ephron three iconic films save the Romantic comedy and now she writes about the woman who is arguably the greatest actors of our generation and perhaps any generation in her latest book Queen Merrill the iconic roles heroic deeds and legendary life Meryl Streep Aaron Welcome to the podcast. Thanks for having me well Erin. I think we can tell from the title that you have a lot of admiration for LAS streep What do you consider yourself a Merrill Superfan of course I mean who isn't a Merrill Superfan Dontrelle like there's this donald pulled from all my God. How did I forget about trump. I try to forget about trump but you can't because he's everywhere and you know he he was the one that who tweeted in that three and toilet tweet that she was the most overrated actress in Hollywood even made her stronger are than before because we all all strippers we closed ranks around her and protected her and they were like no. You're you're completely wrong right right and the irony is that he said that the day after she received a lifetime achievement award at the Golden Globes I mean leave it to the Donald to tweet tweet something totally a name will I should tell people that this is technically not an authorized biography although. I doubt that there's much that Meryl Streep would object to in this book book when you decided to write the book. Did you reach out to her to ask for her participation. Oh of course there were letters. There is an various overtures and the thing about Merrill is she is so so privates and she's not going to talk about how great she is because that would be the most egotistical thing ever so she's GonNa leave it to me her Viagra for to do that for her. Yeah Yeah you describe an interesting situation in the book shortly after the mini series Holocaust stared and she's walking around New York City and a VW van drives is by and some guys lean out the window and Yell Hey Holocaust. Hey Data and how surreal that was for her. has she ever been very comfortable with her fame. You know it's funny that you mentioned that and she was so disturbed by that episode that she unlisted her phone number because fans were calling her already and that TV movie was extremely popular in it enhanced her profile and she went to do movies which made her even more famous and in nineteen eighty she got the cover of Newsweek and the headline said Star for the Eighties Meryl Streep and she was kind of horrified by that so she was taking the subway and she saw the magazine down in the subway and she it felt that it was so surreal to be that famous because she didn't want to be that famous because she's an actress and her bread and butter is observing the people out in the wild as inspiration for her roles and she seems to have had a similar relationship with awards because I know that early on and and she would say that she didn't believe in awards that put one actors performance against another and yet. She admits that she also craves the accolades now now that she's set the record for Oscar nominations. Do you think that her love hate. Relationship with awards leans a little more toward love than hate. Oh she loves to win. The thing about Merrill is she's extremely competitive so that part of her that loves to win always he's outranks the part of her that thinks is unfair to rank one performance above the other so she has said that she craves the attention attention and she craves the accolades like any Veron's dom of her stature at the same time she doesn't love all the politicking that that happens around and Oscar Award Season Oscars in award season the whole you know rigmarole. She thinks it Solis. I feel feel like she still thinks that way but most of her just wants to win. She's ambitious yeah well. I WanNa ask you about her background ground before acting although it sounds a little bit like she was more or less acting even when she was a teen and not just on stage you talk about how in highschool she suppressed pressed her loud assertive self almost willed herself into being this very agreeable popular girl cheerleader homecoming queen. It's an interesting contrast to the Meryl Streep that we know. Do you look at that period in her teens as maybe even her first real acting role absolutely so they're real. Meryl Pharrell is Bossy opinionated still fun but extremely and expressive and you know she she stands up for herself but that didn't go over well with the kids in her neighborhood growing up in New Jersey. She had brown frizzy hair. She had glasses asses. She was a bit matronly. Her classmates thought she was the teacher. You know you know what I mean. He was one of those kids who looked older like we all knew kids like that growing up and she was kind of tired of it so she decided to embark on transformation she reds seventeen magazine Eggesin. She lightened her hair. She straightened their hair. She adopted a giggle and an easy going persona and she's not it's totally easy going and she wanted to be appealing to men two boys. I mean I should add two boys and she succeeded at that and then she became homecoming. Queen yeah she seems to have an interesting relationship with her looks and there's also a great story in here where I guess she was up for the remake of King Kong in the seventies and she she auditions for the producer Dino Dila Rentis. Can you tell that story so and she goes in for one of her first major auditions not not Lorenzo's is this major producer he's Italian and she goes in there to read the part that went to Jessica Lang Hang in the one thousand nine hundred seventy six remake of King Kong and she walks in Gino says to his son in Italian this Lisa so ugly. Why do you bring this little. Does he know that Merrill went to Vassar and studied Italian at Vassar and she can understand Dan every word he's saying so she response to him in Italian. I'm sorry you don't like this. This is but this is what you get. What you see is what you get then. She stood up and walked out. She failed the audition. Needless to say Jessica. Lang won it yeah but in the end I suppose oppose it. Kinda worked down in her favourite because as I recall that was not the best of the King Kong movies was it oh no. I mean a fun role for for Jessica but I think Merrill dodged a bullet there. It's funny with Jessica Lang. She has never really been jealous. US of any other actress except for Jessica Lang Ruin Merrill always wished she was more beautiful more conventionally beautiful. She always wanted you know Jessica Lang's legs she was jealous of Jessica's role as Patsy cline in sweet dreams and Merrill had always wanted to sing loved patsy Kline so she just ached for that role and she lost Jessica Lang and it always always haunted her later. She realized that it was a huge waste of time. Wishing she were more beautiful but a big part of her wish that she had that face that say it all like especially in a romantic role like in French Lieutenant's woman which required her to to be this elusive Victorian Taurean beauty merrill felt like she could pull that off. That's fascinating because I was wondering if she's ever had any kind of a famous Hollywood rivalry along on the lines of her and Goldie Hawn in-depth becomes our or Crawford versus Davis. Is that the closest thing it was so I was bean gene journalist and biographer. I was sort of hoping for one of those sorry. Meryl Sorry Merrill I would say there might have been a one sided rivalry with Maryland Madonna yeah because yeah because what Madonna took Evita from her and then she later took what was the film from Madonna Music Art so Merrill House one-sided rivalries with actresses and when it comes to roles where she would get to sing so she had seen Patti Lupone onced on stage in Evita in nineteen seventy nine and she just desperately wanted to sing that part which I think she would just nail so in the late eighties Oliver Stone was going to do the movie adaptation adaptation with Paula Abdul choreographing and Merrill did dub she was you know all signed on on but salary negotiations forced her to walk away and then Oliver Stone walked away to and then in a few years later when she heard that Madonna you know had taken the role of Evita she said jokingly or maybe maybe it was half-jokingly. I could rip her throat out. Wow One thing that stands out about her. In this book is that she's he's almost led a charmed career because even when she was starting out at Yale you say that she was a little bit of a minor celebrity among her peers in fact they even nicknamed nicknamed one of the acting classes Meryl's class and then she moves to New York and almost instantly starts getting cast plays and she sort of mentored by Joe PAPP at the Public Lick Theater. She wasn't exactly typical story of a struggling actress paying her dues Jai. Oh no I mean and that was part of the resentment of her toward other Andrzej news is that she didn't have to wait tables while she waited tables at Yale School of drama or the Yale School of trauma however you WanNa say it but she didn't have to so she basically just got to New York and started working. you know Joe PAPP cast her in her first public theater show trelawny of the wells she had a marginal role but made a big impacts and later starred in Shakespeare in the park and measure for measure and everyone was buzzing about her everyone she was the it girl but she had the talent to back it up while at Yale she spent three years at Yale. She did something like forty different roles in three years and her classmates loved her but also were sort of jealous of her because she was taken all the good parts and I guess her big break was the film Julia and there's another great story hear about her Co.. Star Jane Fonda actually surely teaching her how not to miss her mark onset because that was I guess her first film did find a sort of act as a mentor to her absolutely so like imagine doing your first movie an acting scenes opposite Jane Fonda and you're a young actress and Jane Fonda is or Merrill said she had some like a feral quality a feral alertness. Nobody was worth confident than Jane Fonda and so Meera was intimidated but she was loosening up loosening up and just cracking Jane up just making Jane Laugh half and they had to film another. You know they had to film another take because Jane was like hey look at the floor. That's your mark. He disbanded handed it on that mark otherwise you're not going to be in the movie and get in the light so it's those little things that Merrill I didn't know that Jane sort of taught her and was really a mother hen then when Jane got back to. La She was telling everyone everyone about this amazing young actress that she met an open doors for Merrill that Merrill didn't even know about and this was around the same time that she had an ongoing ongoing relationship with the actor Jon Khazal who people probably know best as freight from the Godfather. They live together for something like three years. Maybe four years yes and then it ended in tragedy. When he was diagnosed with Terminal Cancer. She was by his side through this gradual decline in the eventually passed away. How at his death impact Merrill she and she was.
