"Studio that their homes and stuff so you know a lot time. Clint do thing senate in john. You know kind of do that. Then sometimes men morgan and john. We like to do a writing session. And we'll get together and do a batch of songs and then we all get together In the studio and that's a pretty much that's where i feel like they're real magic comes out even still to this day. Twenty something years later once we look at each other and we're in a room zaman. That's when everything is you know it just happens. I feel like that that nineteen year old kid in the back of the rec room Wondering how we're gonna pay next month's rent here we've got to play a show somewhere when we just played show last night. What are we gonna do. I still get that energy. When i'm with the garden seven. That's and that's a good thing. That i hope i never lose After all these years it's still fun if that makes sense. Yeah well. I would think that's really really important You mentioned the producer. This record elvis basket who you. This is the second time you worked with him. I know him. I've met him a couple of times. But i know him from his work with alter bridge from pretty much day one and then look miles as well and then and in through that in the last couple of records he's done with slash with the conspirators. And it's funny. And maybe you can elaborate on this. Because like i know the guys in alter bridge pretty well and they absolutely consider him like a fifth member that ben and slash ever since he started working with them is really gotten tight with him and you just made the reference. He's like six member of the band. What is it about. Because you've worked with a lot of people in your career working with with elvis that for you and the band clicked so much. Good question and We worked with consequences not to get take anything away. From any producers. we work with. They've all been great. Elvis has just been For for years we've wanted to work with. We've known them we've always circle. That are friends is to monitor all tight. John and then they all live in orlando so john kinda new l. with more than the rest but when we finally met it clicked and then once we went in that studio and we were the first band to live in there except for miles. It's like for how. I said you remember after school special That you watch on friday after school you know trying to get home. They're hurry up and make you see what was going to be like his house to me for artists to explain. It's like that magic house that you always wanted to go into but you never could get in there and then once you got in you realize the magic place he breathes fleet music everything once you walk in there. You know you're getting ready to do something cool. Because the energy that he creates around the band. It's not. He doesn't wanna do he. Lets us do what we wanna do. I feel like elvis came in. It was a good. He felt we needed someone to police the ban. A little bit but He said the reason he wanted to work. Seven because seven does he didn't want to change anything he just wanted to. If there was something he can do help. And i feel like that's what he's he's done and i i can't say it enough man you wake up in the morning there at the house you ready to sing you go in the studio twelve until twelve midnight. And it's an incredibly. There's not one day i was there. I didn't want to be there. And i always look forward to going back. Did he. work you heart as a singer. Yeah man but i like working hard. you know. he doesn't he he. I think he thinks that i try to work. I like to really you know. knock it down. If i'm going good. I'll think every day until you know i don't have anything but i never let it get to that point but work with elvis. We you know we turn everything down and and we feed off each other and you know. There's not one time that i've you know he's he said something that i didn't like or vice. Versa is just a great working relationship. Recommend any kids out there or any adults or music lady man just you know. Try that out one time because it was a great experience. You know one of the things. I love about seven. Dust is the heaviness of the music. And i and i love. I've always been a vocal guy gotta hear good vocals and melody and great singing. I love your voice. And i've always been i've always wondered. I've talked to so many different singers in my career. And i get different answers to this all the time when i ask them about their process as a singer warming up and warming down and i've talked to some of the greatest singers ever in rock history. And they'll be like. I don't do any of that. Shit man i just walked out belted out and then i've seen you do. They're screaming into towels. They're doing to our warm up a two hour cool down you're you're of the mindset. You just go out and do it. There's none of that stuff with you. Well you know. Sometimes it depends on where i'm at I can pretty much. But i do like a lot a lot but i'm not listening to not like know back in the day like you. Go get your vocal lessons. And they send you on with a cd. Or no. i think at a certain point in time you get past that and you know your voice you know your body just like with any athlete with anything that you do you know if you better practice you better practice you know if you need to warm up warm up so i think that goes with the everybody. Some people don't have to warm up some people. Do i definitely feel like you think better. After you've warmed up sh you know once you get going through the most your voice definitely get stoned along the way and it's funny talk about seniors right now. As a matter of fact i'm with one of my best buddies and a producer. Songwriter singer suha's from the ban raw. Which i love and a been producing and writing with me on my solo stuff. So we're locked up. Why tennis away with my farmhouse right. Now we're getting down on it is that is that the spelled r. a. raw. Yeah you know raw. Yeah i know they are my buddy.

"Like that or big bombastic delivery like maiden great song is a great song and who knows maybe steve harris wrote at the way you played it you know. Maybe it started that way. Who knows. I think that's always really interesting. That's a good point. Yeah you just never know it goods but it it. It really is true. A good song will shine in any in any arrangement setting. I've i've noticed that as the years go on so there's something to be said about a good melody. Good corporation and the lyric that that connects and There you have it well in the last thing speaking of good songs. I don't know if you've seen this. I came on the air today. I get all the british rock magazine sent to me. Classic rock and rock candy and metal hammer. I love all those magazines. They're my favorite things to read. And because of the pandemic. I guess the mail stops sending him so today. The floodgates opened got like eight months of magazines. I'm getting caught up and on classic rock which is an amazing british magazine for people who haven't seen it. They did the the the top one hundred songs of the last twenty years. And i don't know if you know this or saw this but blackboard was number three. What yano got it right here. Yeah i had no idea. Wow i'll take. I'll take a when i get off the air. I'll take a photo. And i'll send you a photo a picture of the like a two page deal but it ramps up from number one hundred and then i think the darkness was number one. You know typical brits and then and then yeah but then number three. I'm pretty sure it was three. It was like three or four two but is right. There was blackbird. So speaking a great song i mean they. They love that one over there for sure. Wow that's my mind is is totally blown. After hearing that. I had no idea thank you for sure i mean i love it too but you can thank classic rock. But i didn't know if you saw that. I guess that song really. I mean we've talked about this. Before alter bridges. Had the guys i had been from blackstone cherry on the show yesterday and we were talking about how big they are in in the uk and how much bigger they are in the uk than they are in america being an american band the same can be said for alter bridge and clearly you know they have a great respect for your music there. It's amazing the relationship. That alter bridge has with that that part of the world. Yeah it's fascinating to see how different markets will react to your music. That's something. I had no idea about how that worked twenty years ago. I thought you know everybody is a human. Everybody has ears. Listen to things the same way but a different Part of the world reacts to what you do very differently so fortunately the uk has been in. Europe in general has been Very good to us. And we're we're we're. We're very grateful for that so i've been a lot of ways. It's really allowed us to have a career and blackstone. Yeah the same the same thing toward those guys over there and it's it's a totally different dynamic you know and So i think that both blacks on cherry and and alter bridge very grateful for for the uk europe. No doubt about it. here it is. I got the magazine in my hands. The one hundred greatest songs of the century so far number one darkness. I believe in a thing called love number two. Acdc rock and roll train number. Three alter bridge blackbird. It says it might have been a may have been a dark song. But blackbird lifted alter bridge out of a dark period and into the lights. Jeez well thank you classic rock. I'll send you take a photo and send it to you. I thought that was awesome. Hey managed great. I appreciate the time. It's always great to talk to you and You know all the stuff you got going on can't wait for the solo record. Everybody checkout walk. The sky two point out there right now with the new song on it and the live songs from walk the sky and hopefully maybe next year some new conspirator stuff living the dream was my favorite one. You did so far. So i can't wait to see what's next and offer to see as soon man been too long i would love that. Thank you eddie. And give my best to the conspirators. When you see them in a couple of days i'll i will we. You know we were. Maybe we'll text. You just get a sense of the rocky mode that we're in so we could share the ridiculousness with you. Definitely in fact that you guys start. I'd try please. If you guys start going down the rabbit hole some real music acri just facetime me. And i'll be in our props phone on the table and when we get blue word or in john sykes with we'll hit we'll hit all miles and we'll get involved in all right man. Listen take care. Stay in touch.

"The last thing on the solo end of your world is that you have basically like the equivalent of like the prince black album sitting in your cadillac. Because before you put out your first solo record. You had done one that you were sitting on forever still to this day remains unreleased so there is this mysterious myles kennedy original first solo album. That you only you have and i've talked to tramonte about it. I mean i think he's heard some of it. He told me. But do you ever. What does that forever in the archives. I think time will tell I because there's a certain mystique to it now and people are probably for anybody who cares. You know the it's it's something they might be interested in So maybe somewhere down the road it'll be released in some tired or at least parts of it will be released but you know it's there so that's nice to know you know it's it's This body of work. That represents a certain period of time which is as the years. Go on i find that. There isn't a lure to that just because it it's like it's like a journal entry and you go back and you lose something you had that you created and and rick in documented eleven years ago and go out and that's where it was at that point as an artist and as a human being so maybe in another few years. It'll be interesting to revisit that again and possibly the idea of releasing it so he just by me talking about it now for people. That didn't know i'm building the mystique so when it when it comes. It's going to be like this like what is this thing. So that's i'm trying to. You know do a little advanced marketing. When you're ready miles. We'll we'll get it out there all right all right alter bridge obviously you guys heavily impacted by the pandemic because you had a huge tour. That was blown out the last concert i saw before. This whole lockdown. Was you guys at the wilton in the last la rainbow broadcast. I did was you and mark right after the will turn back in whatever that was february. And then obviously you guys had greater plans to promote walk the sky and that all got wiped out. Because of what's going on. And now we have essentially an ep of live songs and one new song in last rites so obviously this is all a product of the fact that you guys couldn't continue to tour to support the record. Yeah we figured since There was there was no way to to Continue tour cycle. We thought well for considering there are a lot of markets. We haven't had the opportunity to hit. Let's take look songs from the new record live versions and let's release them. I mean that's really the best we can do at this point and in in conjunction with that let's do Let's put on a new track as well and so we figured that. Was you know oppo and and here we are with walk. The sky two point. Oh which is out now or coming out. I comes out just a few days. Yeah okay so it's on friday. it's in the chain. it's in the chamber. Yeah all right. It's out on friday. Did you do during the course of the time. A touring for walk the sky the wa the tracks from it that are live on this ep. Was that everything that you would ever played live from the record. Or how'd you played other stuff. You just didn't include on the ep did you. You didn't play every track at some point from that record live did you. Our goal was to do that but unfortunately we had. We had that point in we were. We've been before we shutdown. We'd been rehearsing a song called indoctrination. We're getting ready to put that in the in the in the Are small and so. Yeah i mean we. I think we got to play around half the tracks and the songs that you hear on the ep. Were most of the ones that we had the opportunity to play. I think there was one didn't make the cut for whatever reason But we. You know it's. It's the same in all the projects. I play you. Do your bastard least put have each song habits day live. you know. i mean 'cause you put so much work and do it and it would be ashamed just to have it sit on a record so and who knows. You know who knows what'll happen. Maybe as time goes on whether will you know on the next tour cycle. Get to revisit. Some of those songs again play some the ones. We didn't play from this record. I i don't know but We did the best we could with this ep and figured it would would of scratch the edge for those of us who had or for those fans who hadn't seen us live play. These songs yet was last right something that was leftover from recording. Walk the sky that you guys just didn't include or is that a brand new song from the ground up that you recorded just for the so kind of. Yes yes it was. The genesis of it started during the walk the sky Pre pro and killer. Riff that mark had And we we started to chase it down but it just didn't seem congruent with the rest of the record and didn't have the didn't have the same feels the other. The other tracks did so we held off on completing it and fortunately through the power of technology during the lockdown back in the spring. A while i was working on my solo stuff I did a zoom or skype. Or whatever with elvis and we actually tracked the vocal For i did it my student here in spokane and he was in in florida. And and i just you know would we'd sit there and we work through it for a few hours and then i send him files and here we are. So you know it's easier because the gut 'cause like mark lives ten minutes from elvis's studio in orlando so anything they needed to do with mark's guitar parts Were you know that was. That was an easy fix. Its guitar parts. I think i had already tracked during the during the cross during the walk the skype session. So i didn't have to worry about guitar stuff Yeah it that's how that's how did it. Yeah it's it is killer and also native son from which is on the original walk the sky which is great. One of my favorite songs on the record is the current is a current single and video as well. So you've got two things fairly singles wise new out there floating around for people to check out and there's videos for for both of them which again videos the way. You pretty much have to do them. Now which is some sort of lyric thing or animated because everybody's so spread out and who will get together and who won't so that's really where where things are at as far as doing visual stuff it seems. Would you guys ever entertained the idea. I mean i know the alter bridge camp is all pretty spread out but would you ever entertain the idea of doing like a streaming performance. So many people are doing those. What's your what's your feeling on them..
Willow Smith Calls Out Jada's Parenting Style
"Are you running for some daily pop? Cuz we've got some Smith family drama for you today. Willow is coming after her met her mother questioning her parenting skills at her own red cable. Are you kidding me? This is Jaden was harder on her than on her brother Jaden during a new episode of red table. Talk on Facebook watch Willow shares just how differently they were treated great up. There is a difference between how black moms will treat their daughters and their son. Oh, oh my goodness, right? Let's go back through is true something as simple as just like getting up at the right time. It would be like you might like to maybe like, oh no school school is about to be you better get dressed. We need to get it would be like wage in my room like, okay got it. But then Jane is actually like nothing listed. Are you ready to and he'd be like, maybe one moment off? Thank you. She is asking for a debt said it's right there honey you to me where you have a black bar? But you don't question her parenting in front of everybody. I do think Jade is one of those people that's very open communication. Tell me how you feel kind of mother one hundred percent. But I also think in black families and I will save this growing up in a big family and the hood a lot of times moms and parents are harder on girls because there's this thing ingrained in your head that if something happens with your daughter your daughter gets pregnant or becomes a birth mother. It's a direct reflection on you. So a lot of times like people don't even care about the father they like, oh near that boy knocked her up, but the mother there's a lot of shame that goes on the parents and growing up my mother never talked to me about the birds and the bees at all. My sister got schooled in it from the time. She was thirteen years old and it's weird that that's how it works like, yep. Just saw this whole thing happened with t i, yeah and how crazy everybody was like, oh my God. This is so insane. Meanwhile, I'm like, oh that happens. All those on you know, I think has a lot to do with also on the Note just you know, as a mother myself. I feel like for a woman you have to be very strong. Like I wanted to be so secure in her self-confidence seems to be like the most important thing you can instill in my daughter and being confident means like you get up you show up on time. You work hard you put in your best and you feel good about it. And so like I can see that and it's so funny that example because literally off hook up Chase from a nap the other day, he's to mind you and I said Chase are you awake? You ready to go? Five more minutes mom and I was like, okay honey UT five more minutes. You need a rest. I don't know if it's just a little boy, but it was just a funny example. I'm like, this is already a happening in my life. And there are only two right I feel like mothers and suck. So that Dynamic is very unique. Like I definitely think that women and parents think that they can be harder on girls because I feel like they think girls can handle it. I feel like with boys. I feel like a mom. I see it with my own mom and my own old dog, like he has always been regardless of what drama or what he's had to go through. He's always sort of Taken extra good care of him. I just feel like if it's a boy and you're a mom you just have an extra soft spot regardless of race or anything like that. I just think moms and sons have a different Bond. It's like dads and daughters. I feel like whatever child you have. That's the opposite gender of you. You are a little bit softer towards I can see that I totally can totally stay. I think the dynamic is now shifting I think with the world shifting and now, you know having to have harder conversations with boys at younger ages kind of the same ones you kind of have a girl about consent and about sex and all of those things. I feel like with everybody being mindful of this patriarchy Society. I think that's going to flip and it's going to change a little bit. Yeah. Yep. Think yeah, I hope I mean I still feel like just because of how I'm positioned. I'm like I already feel like I have to be like, you know, you you fight for what you deserve you are equal to your counterparts, you know, I feel like that stuff you have to like push into daughter still because if you don't if they don't think that going growing up then they accept less than and that's where I feel like we've gotten to the point where we got to where women, you know, they were traditionally taught that it's okay. If a man makes more, you know, if and then finally now we're getting to the other side of that and we just have to keep that momentum going like we're equal. We're all very equal talk to your son and your daughter the same way is what I guess. It's still to me and Society like I'm going to still push up for Chase, but I feel like it's almost a given still for a man to get equal. I mean, I'm still like given like he's going to get it cuz he's got that leg up because he's going to be a man. Yeah and the woman I have to be like make sure you get your your peace Honey Pig. To caution her you have to prepare her for that reality because men don't face that as much which is the problem. I mean, even in our own lives and our own circumstances, we know people that are of different genders and might make more than us or do more than us, but they don't work as much as we do, that's happening right now. So it's just one of those things you just constantly have to be aware of I

2020 Emmy Noms & Reactions
"Daily pop. It's a very big moment in Hollywood this morning. The emmy nominations were chest revealed moments ago, and we will be celebrating with some of the nominees. Though surprise, guests are coming up, so you will not want to miss it. You guys, but we got to start off with the ladies up for lead actress in Drama Series Right? The category is Stack Jen Aniston. Sandra Oh's and those are just some of the big names who is going to take the win. What do you guys think? I just think Zendaya is GonNa take you was this show that everybody was talking about? It was unbelievable and not everybody got to watch the morning show with Jennifer Aniston because. Apple TV was not readily available so I think Zendaya is going to take this I was not paying the fourteen ninety nine. GD! There was so many submissions one hundred thirty five submissions. This year for this category lost those. So things I think women I'm kind of with you. Just although ozark for me has been one of my favorite shows forever and ever and. Laura Linney could take it out that. Could get in I. could not get into. It was like I. Really Try just I couldn't do it, but that's just me. All right we gotta talk about snubs and surprises, though big little lies when pretty much everything? Last time it was nominated. But this year came up short. No Best Actress nomination, no best limited series. I'M GONNA. Ask what you guys think about. These into getting snubbed a little bit. Should've been made, I thought. Was Okay, but they should've kept it at season one. They should have just wrote it out, but you know what Merrill got nominated. Laura Linney got nominated. She is Gucci ever. Reese Witherspoon as a producer of this show. This is a win for her, so she is as though she got snubbed. She is nominated because two of our actresses were. Absolutely. Strong enough season two. Why did you like season two as much Morgan I know you were saying earlier before the show? Why you're putting me on glass. Scott, I mean maybe I didn't want to hear that I just felt like. The first season was just too hard to top to be honest. It was so good everything was everything about it was so hook line and sinker. Everyone was invested as I just feel like. They wanted to ride out that high season two was okay, but you never want to have your second season just. Just be okay I just felt like even though Merrill we all bow down to Merrill. She can handle any role. I just felt like she wasn't going to save it. And although she got nominated, she gets nominated. It's just that's just what you do. She acts that well. She deserves it all the time. I just what Jessica said I. Don't think it should have been made I think we should have just. Episodes in the second series. I love the song. The second series is still a Mike Finish shoot and I'm never finished it, so I thought.

"witherspoon" Discussed on I Weigh with Jameela Jamil
"But it was also. There's a reason people tell you not to put your own. Things! So there were times I didn't know how it's going to make payroll I. Didn't know how to create more revenue. I'm lucky to have business partners who came in and rewrote my business plan. So that I had a digital side of my business as well, but I refuse to do it the way that it had been done for hundreds of years in Hollywood. Where you know you, you're dedicated to one studio. They decide whether or not they're gonNa make your pictures well. That doesn't work for women. It just doesn't want or or people of color or people who represent any underrepresented group. Corporate mandates are prohibitive. And maybe even if they slipped shifts slightly, it's not enough to revolutionize. What is getting made and so? Important to me. That didn't go about things the same way that always been done in order to produce a different result because the Hollywood wasn't made. For there to be. This system of equal storytelling and representation, and would think about all the stories that have been lost. That is what? I! Could. reruns you see loads of great remakes that we just slap a woman. So it's fine I need new stories. I think about I mean I think. How much do I not know? Because of the the the gates in the barriers that have been up for so so long so if it looks like a bunch of women and people colored people who represent lgbtq characters on film are busting their ass, producing producing and producing. because. There's hundreds of years of deficit. Yeah. We're missing. We need to know more one thing I love. Is that in recognizing that you? Yourself were so limited new roles as a young, straight, slim, beautiful white woman that things must have been so much harder for those more marginalized, and that's what has galvanized you to create not only roles for yourself, but the women and for people from all other walks of life. I'm grateful. Fuel sense of self awareness, because not everyone. Has that a little bit? I well thank you for saying that. But I benefit from hearing life perspectives, and we all do and I don't want a world in which I only hear stories about people who look like me. That just isn't mind expanding. It's not curious enough, and it's not good enough to journey been like in kind of becoming a more and more informed person in particular post. Time's up. I imagine. I wonder because I think you know we're in this moment of such It's such delicacy and and people are told off for not knowing all of the answers, and not having all of the correct updated information as to how to speak about binary how to speak about race tensions and and disability, and all these different things LGBTQ issues. What has your journey been like in expanding your horizons and your experience? Has it been a steep learning curve? Do you make mistakes you someone who's? Do you. Tend to educate yourself. It's reading. I read a lot, but I also ask friends and I ask for people's patience with me as I try to figure it out, and I would rather make a mistake. Never try same and I think. I try to be very thoughtful, thoughtful and cautious with my words, because words can be painful and powerful I try to process before I say anything. I am a twenty four hour processor. So I really think about things. I think about how they're received more than how they make me feel. So I think it's just that combination of having really wonderful friends who? And I don't expect them to be the no all of everything you, you know, but who take time to just say. I mean collaborating with Carrie Washington little viruses, the greatest example because we were tackling thing, topics of class race, sexuality and By the way you portrayal I've. Just finished episode. Five I'm loving. Dying happens next, but I I think display of. Hilarious sort of clumsy and lots of devastating white fragility is really is really really well executed. It's done in such a nuanced way where you can see that not only does your character not have a militias intention with her clumsiness or with your children's clumsiness? But also there's a sense of thinking you imparted me if I got this wrong, but feeling like your quite evolved like that feeling of I don't see color and all those living dangerous statements and accusing someone of bringing race in something when they have rightfully pointed out different in prison age, I think. I think you've got it. God. I like the fact that you're able to show the know. This is the struggle that people are having currently. They are struggling with owning up to their own white privilege, owning up to their I think maybe that comes partially from fear of a acknowledging that they may have had a leg up and people not understanding, but a that sometimes privileged can just be an absence of discrimination. Sometimes privileged can be just a simple as that. And rights, what would or or you know I've I've had people say to me well on not a rich white? Yes. Exactly. But I, but what they're not acknowledging is hundred hundreds and thousands of years of freedom, yeah or lack of oppression. Opportunity, Yep but there's these conversations are super nuanced, and I think you have to have them with sentient people. I think you have to have them with empathetic. People Act to empathy. But they are a necessity like I'm not interested in having a media company that doesn't. Acknowledge what's really going on in this world and what's really happening if you are a thoughtful person? Is. Unconscionable, what's happening in so many ways revolving race and class and Disparity Nation harassment. I. I'm just a person that holds that. Place, in my life for people that I just I deeply these things and I do what I can, which is l. stories and create opportunity. Give I give the microphone or other people so hopefully you know that is. That's my way of saying. I'm here to listen and talk, so I was GonNa say what is your advice for people out there who privileged, either because they are able bodied, or because they are wealthy, or because they are just simply wight, or says or straight who feel afraid to venture into learning sometimes when you try, and you get it wrong, you're punished more so than the people who don't try We'll be you advice to those people in entering this journey of progress and understanding. I think about Brennan Brown a lot in the vulnerability. Talk that she gives or about daring greatly. Isn't it better to try than.
‘1917’ Named Top Film at Producers Guild Awards
"The producers guild awards may be on televised but they're pretty good at predicting Oscars winners that means the World War one film nineteen seventeen is poised to come away with the top honor at the Oscars in just a few weeks the Sam Mendes film won the award for best theatrical motion picture at the PGA ceremony Saturday night many in the crowd seemed stunned after Reese Witherspoon announce the winner of the award which has gone on to win the
2020 Golden Globes Predictions
"I'm Shawn Fantasy and this is the big picture of conversation show about predicting the results of an award show do not respect. That's right Amanda. The Golden Globes are nearly here. They are the conclusion of one of the more fun weekends of the year. We'll have NFL wild card weekend starting and then Dispatch the sped award. Show Fun for you nightmare for me. I will go straight from the eagles which my husband is too invested in into ricky surveys haltingly. Golden gloves so prepare for Sunday night attitude from Amanda yes I will be preparing for a weird attitude likely from ricky traverse one of the more more unusual figures to host an award show in the last ten or twenty years. He's back hosting Golden Globes. Were going to be predicting the results of some of these races which are chosen by ninety anyone mysterious foreign journalists Jervis was selected by these people to host the show in part because he has been the host of some successful editions of the Golden Globes. Last year was a different kind of Golden Globes humira call was hosted by Andy Sandberg and Sandra did not recall that. Until you said just now I think that I thought that that it was going to signal a new way forward for the Golden Globes. I don't know not necessarily a more progressive way forward but just the different kind of approach to hosting Alaska races back. What's your take on these days? Why are we still doing this? That every that's kind of where I am. I just like no thanks. I've moved on. I think we as a TV and awards. Washing washing community have moved on feels stale and it and he's feels like just kinda trying to hold onto whatever influence he had like ten years ago he still has a huge following and I think he's still a very successful comedian per se but he feels very fake controversial as a professional. Now where sort of everything he does is more of a provocation than a joke. which is not really where you WANNA be now famously on this award show? He's quite sharp elbowed he takes shots at celebrities as opposed to patting them on the back as many Golden Globes hosts have in the past I guess this is fine. I you know you think like what happens. When crosses the line and we have an outrage moment how will we handle that in this otherwise very convivial award show? I don't think people will care either will be the requisite op-eds or takes or whatever and perhaps that will distract from whatever terrible awards. The Hollywood foreign press gives out You know and maybe we'll put all of our anger into that and then we can just have an award. It's show maybe that's maybe it's a nice way of of dividing the components. Do you think we're queudrue vase was up for the joker and joker think he was auditioning against Joaquin now down He. He was auditioning for the Penguin. You know in the new one because everyone wanted to be the penguin You know this is a movie podcast broadcast but there are also a bunch of TV awards at the Golden Globes I. I haven't really paid much attention to the TV awards nor will be really prognosticating but yovany any sense of what's going. Go down here. TV was what were the big shows. Twenty nine thousand nine six session and fleabag will though shows win awards. What succession might succession session is nominated in drama along with big little lies the crown killing eve and wait for it then learn? They say that I watched the last year in the morning. Show who do not believe on the critics who came late to it and we're like wow the morning show is really become an investigation of me. Too Culture friends a dog wrote the last so it's more nutshell but anyway I still watched all of it. You could see it winning but you could also ASSOC- You know the crown seems like a very obvious when you can also see succession winning because the Golden Globes likes especially in the TV area to To get out ahead of the emmys succession has not yet won the major Emmy Award. This would be an announcement of succession as sort of the next great television. Show on Prestige Steve Cable. Whether that's still the case given the way that Netflix Amazon and all the other streamers have kind of barreled through the doors now is it will be interesting to see You know this. This is really weird. Best TV drama actress Jennifer Aniston. Olivia Colman Jody comber Nicole. Kidman Reese Witherspoon. Two nominations for the morning show. There are more billy crap. He's nominated for the morning show. If Billy Krupp wins for the morning show I take back half of everything I've said sad about the Hollywood Foreign Press Association is very strange. Maybe that's enough on TV awards. What else do we really want to make any sense things for succession fleabag everything else? I don't really care about. Let's let's start with something movie wise that I think is very relevant to this show. Do you think that this award show in. General is impactful on the the Oscar narrative in general or this year. Well let's start with in general. Yes I do because it just seizes attention and for a certain amount of time at a crucial moment and the awards are as much about attention economy as they are anything else. There are a lot of movies to see. There are a lot of voters who haven't quite quite caught up and I'm like oh I guess I should check this out and and sometimes I think it's reactive. Something wins and people are like I don't know about that. I'm GonNa make sure that I invest the other way but there isn't a fanfare around it. Everyone shows up for these. And it's televised and I just think the timing especially you can't help even if you're like this doesn't matter. I'm an ignoring it. We spend so much time talking about it. I do think it matters so last year of course Green Book won best drama and Bohemian. Wraps he won best musical or comedy though. I would argue. That Green Book is a comedy and Bohemian. rhapsody is neither a musical comedy drama. Those two films obviously competed heavily in one quite heavily heavily at the Academy Awards. Do you think that the results this year will sincerely affect the Oscars. Yes because the award season is much shorter this year. Nominations are in what voting begins today. That's that's insane. That's it's so fast and it's so compressed and I do feel like everyone is feels like if they're playing catch up. I'm still playing catch up on a couple of the Non Marquee categories. And I just think people will use this as a bellwether and also has an instruction action will of okay. Now I gotta go watch these three or I didn't like that this one so I'm going to do this. I don't know that it's one to one but yeah I think they're important. Would you argue that this is the most consequential Golden Globes in recent years. I guess so. Yes how strange. How strange I who have devoted so much of our lives to this it is? How do we let this happen? And I think you and I talked about at this early in the morning when the nominations were announced of. How have we allowed this group of people who tweeted airlines to become the major Oscar deciders? It's a very curious thing. Sometimes they do get stuff right. Yeah and sometimes they do vote in a manner that I think suggests like a clear lear narrative will be taking hold on something you know this year. There's an expectation. I'm getting ahead of myself. There's an expectation that Brad Pitt will win supporting actor. Brad Pitt is the consensus sensus favorite among almost every person. I've talked to to win best supporting actor that may not ultimately be the case. Maybe Al Pacino comes by. Maybe Joe Patchy comes by maybe Anthony Hopkins uh-huh bye-bye who knows it's a stacked category but among all the punditry for both the Oscars and the Golden Globes that I've read everyone agrees it's Brad Pitt. A part of that is because he's Uber famous and the famous is usually awarded here also the ingenue is usually awarded here. The morning show is sort of an ingenue at the at the Golden Globes this year. Wow maybe maybe a young performer. Who has never been who's never had a chance to win something before we'll also win here tonight to start with our predictions? Yes okay the first category. We're GONNA talk about his best motion picture foreign language now. This is notable because there is no universe in which this can reflect the Oscar nominations because there are two candidates here from France so are can also with a farewell will not qualify as foreign language. The first nominee is the Farewell Pedro Motive Painting Glory. Selena Gomez portability fire Bongino host parasite and lodge lease loomis Where was your heart? Tell you about this category category. I think this has to be parasite I think so too but okay international body. They've chosen to films is from France and they've basically chosen in American production a CO production and the farewell which is very popular seen by a great many people. They've been campaigning quite a bit. Yes also Pedro Almodovar's all trail possibly the most celebrated non-american filmmaker of the last twenty years. Twenty five years. Maybe it'd be overstating it he's in certainly in the conversation top five. That's all true. All Great Films Parasol is not eligible in either a drama or best picture drama or best picture a comedy Because it's forty which because that's how the Golden Globes work and Bongino is nominated for director and parasite is also nominated for screenplay I wish to signals to me that they really like parasite and this is the place where they can award parasite so you put your finger on something interesting. which is that people tend to look at the number of nominations especially amongst the small body like this as a clear indication of preference over other movies so once upon a time in Hollywood us five nominations at the Golden Globes? That must mean. It's a front runner in every category. Do you think that's true. Not In every category but I think that it means that there is interest in the film and that it will probably win something. I'm also kind of triangulating and and my picks because I don't think I think that they do try to actually sprinkle out awards among the movies that they do like so new spoilers but like I think this parasite parasite will triumph because it may not want other places interesting. I too am going with parasite. I think it would be insane to not go with parasite though I will be devil's advocating my way through this whole conversation. It's always voiced finds you podcast and live life with you Sean. Best motion picture animated amandus fever category frozen to how to train your dragon. The hidden world missing link Toy Story. Four and the Lion King which I find to be the funniest nomination here because the lion king was not submitted as animated feature to the Academy Nevertheless LS Globes has decided to nominate here. I would think twice. Sorry for yes I think that would be the only answer okay. I think that's the only truly beloved loved Film on this lineup. I think that's the only both critical and commercial success that tends to be the kind of wins. Best animated feature which is one of the more interesting features Church of the animated feature categories to me. Is that very rarely do films that are not commercially successful win there but all also also. You can't just be commercially successful. You have to be a masterpiece in the zone which is why pigs are winding picks ours when one almost every year at the Golden Globes since its inception except for last gear when Dino at one now I suck Spiderman Song. Oh Yeah that was a good movie. I was a great toy story. Four th. That's boring category. Hopefully they put that one up

The Politics Behind The Golden Globe Awards
"Welcome to the frame. I'm Steven Cuevas filling in for John Horn. But we're about to hear from John On. He's covered the movie industry for more than two decades as a print reporter and so we figured he's the best person to explain the significance or lack thereof of the Golden Globe awards. The Hollywood Foreign Press Association today announced the nominees for its annual awards which take place in early January but rather than detail the usual inexplicable explicable nominee choices and snubs. We thought we talk about the relationship between movie fans the Globes and the entertainment industry. I John tells us who makes up the association. What's important to me about the Golden Globes and about some other kind of minor film? Awards is that this is not a representative presentative body. They're about ninety journalists. And if you go on the website for the Hollywood Foreign Press Association you can no longer even find their names teams or where they work. It's a very small group of people and they have undue influence because the movie studios have figured out that if they wou- the voters for the Golden Globes and they're filmmakers win awards at the Golden Globes it kind of create some sort of momentum for the Academy Awards but none none of it is very legitimate and H. MPA has cleaned itself up. It's not a scandal ridden as it has been in years past but this isn't an elite group of film writers or film critics that are making these selections and if you look closely at the selections not just this year but but in past years the fact that they are really that serious ask kind of film. Lovers starts to reveal itself pretty quickly. How so? Well let's talk about a couple of past nominations twenty thirteen. There were three nominations for a movie. I bet you you've never heard of salmon. Fishing in the Yemen amend that was a Golden Globe Walker. If you go back nine years to twenty ten there was a movie with Johnny. Depp called the tourists that was largely largely derided that ended up getting multiple nominations at the Golden Globes. And I think if you look closely at some of the selections this year it's clear it's it's driven by the red carpet like who do they wanna have on the red carpet you look in the TV category. There are multiple nominations for the morning. Show a apple all series. That didn't get great reviews because Jennifer Aniston is coming reese witherspoon is coming as nominees and then you look at Ava d'auvergne as when they see us. One of the most critically acclaimed TV series of the past year didn't get any nominations so it's important for the NBC. Show to have that star Klaus so there's eyeball so so people watch. I think that's part of the bias historically for the Golden Globes that you can say it judging between good filmmaker and a less name they generally are going to vote for the last name and they also have some historical by sees you know that are shared by the Academy in the seventy seven year history of the Globes. Only five women have ever been nominated for best director and this year. There are lots of really good female filmmakers that were up Greta Gerwig for little women. Olivia Wilde for book. SMART Hurrell for honey. Boy Marielle Heller for Beautiful Day in the neighborhood. Not One of them got nominated so golden gloves has a pretty poor history when it comes to nominate women the Golden Globes has made some the effort to try to rehabilitate this reputation. What has it done? It's made sure that people who are members actually have legitimate emmett credits. As journalists there been some reports of. I guess you could call it. Bribery or expensive gifts in the past. I think they've tried I to eliminate all of that so again they have cleaned up their act. But there's only so much legitimacy you can bring to yourself when you're only ninety journalists writing for publications that if we had the names I guarantee you you've probably never heard of them and yet the industry I I guess mostly plays along and an actor or director or studio can use success at the Globes as part of their campaign going into Bosco Bosko season one hundred percent and I think that is one of the most interesting parts of the story. Everybody in Hollywood knows in their soul that at the Golden Globes are really not totally legitimate and yet the studios independent companies and marketing departments. Embrace raise them because they recognize. There's a game to be played and the game is. We're going to court the Golden Globe voters we're going to have screenings and QNA's for them and and if we get a nomination are actor or filmmaker is going to be on their awards show and people are going to start talking about the film and one thing gets the other but they do know that really. It's not totally legit but it serves their purposes academy award. Campaigning is a multi title million dollar business. There are people who work as campaign consultant who get hundreds of thousands of dollars for getting nominations or Oscar wins wins. There is a huge business behind all of this and in some ways it might drive ticket sales or people to stream movies so it's driven by finance finance is driven by trying to get eyeballs on the movies but it's all kind of a hustle so John I've never covered the entertainment industry that closely so so like a lot of people in the public eye really always just saw the Golden Globe awards as the first among that more high profile award shows to spotlight the top films of the year. Going into Oscar seasons am I am I off on that. Were not technically off. I mean because the Hollywood Foreign Press Association Asian nominates into different categories for most of the major film awards they cast a wider net. So just mathematically. They're bound to include lewd a lot of movies. That end up getting nominated. I wouldn't say they're that much of a bellwether but because they're embracing so many movies. They have a a mathematical chance of getting most of those things right. John Horn out in New York. John Thanks for joining us to talk about the Golden Globes. We'll see when you get back.

"Washington Post Technology reporter. Drew are well is spending a lot of his time these days working on stories about tick tock a massively popular APP that's experiencing the kind of growth right now. That facebook and instagram did back in their heydays so drew. Are you on tick Tock. Do you have account I do. I'm not what I'm not a creator. I'm just a weird lurker. My editor is also kind of obsessed with. Uh you haven't posted any videos. No I haven't posted anything. I feel a lot of pressure because everything that goes on. There is really funny and smart and clever. And I'm none of those things. My favorite tedtalk doc. Video that I've seen so far is a bunch of quick shots of a guy throwing slices of cheese at the windows of cars sitting next to him at stop lights and each time a cheese slice sticks to a window. Now the music is sinked. So that a huge drops it tip narcotic year when I look at it. It's it's there's always music everything and there's a lot of pranks a lot of sort of a quick one liners funny visual stuff. And it's all young people. That is the core user the team the very young person under twenty five yeah. It's almost entirely young people. That's changing a little bit but like the highschoolers who would never dream of going on facebook. They're all talk and it is sort of the capital of of the comedy today so far. This sounds like you're pretty standard. Social Media Story Qian's flock to some new APP where they post rocky ocoee videos adult scramble to figure out why this is the hot new APP meanwhile celebrities and brands scramble to figure out how to use the APP to connect with the teens and market. Things do them. Doc Will Smith Reese Witherspoon the NFL these entities all have a presence on Tick Tock. But here's where it gets weird last month Democratic Senator Chuck Schumer and Republican Senator. Tom Cotton sent a joint letter to the director of National Intelligence. They asked about security risks. Around Tick Tock and wondered Tick Tock is quote potential counter intelligence threat. We cannot ignore. It seems crazy right. And that's the thing. Washington is just starting to explore. When you look at Tick Tock? It's really easy to see the sort of fun videos. But it's also this incredibly instrumental communication platform for kids and young. The people the government has had its issues with facebook and instagram and twitter and snapchat and some of those issues of touched very directly on politics elections and national all security but those social media companies are all American in Tik Tok is not its parent. Company is Chinese which has got lawmakers asking a lot of questions questions lately. Thank you all for being here. Thank earlier this month. Republican Senator Josh Hawley convened a hearing about tech companies with ties to China. I'd also like like to highlight two empty chairs today which I say for two invited witnesses. Who apparently don't share your commitment to discussing this issues wants shares for tick tock he drew on some of the reporting that drew has done for the post and Holley said this about tick tock accompany compromised by the Chinese Communist Party? Already knows where your children are knows what they look like with their voices. Sound like what they're watching and what they share with each other Holly makes this sound pretty scary. What happens when the big social media platform the one? Everybody's on based in China. Does it raise different concerns about security or data privacy or censorship or propaganda or is this just fear mongering about a geopolitical

"Stage is an experience that you cannot fathom until you're actually there because there's no place to go and everyone's looking at you and you can't even see them because of the lights and yet you have to manage to start talking and be funny on top of of it and At the beginning I think I did. I wrote material. That was very much Influenced by Woody Allen. Who's WHO's my favourite and and I used to do very offbeat jokes that sounded like I was reading them and And I it took ears to develop A style and actually what happened is I was involved in a relationship And the the the girl Oh left me and I was very hurt very hurt and I had to go up on stage and I finally just turned to the honest and said this girl left me. I said it Well I said what happened is she moved in I if she moved in with another guy so I dumped her. Because that's where I draw the line and so that was the beginning that was really the beginning of people of of the Garry. Shandling ailing dating years in stand up. That came out. You know 'cause I realize oh I I started really spill my guts about being heard and and and people really related to it and it just was one of those things. It was in a nightclub in Dallas. I really remember it very well. I think that's so interesting. How uncomfortable comfortable? He was on stage at the beginning. And how he felt like he sounded like he was reading his jokes and Mitzi shore who owned the comedy store was very direct about the fact that she thought he was a terrible performer. And she didn't like back writers who tried to stand up so gary you couldn't get in at the comedy. Then he's just started doing gigs at all these little crappy places in the valley and he he didn't come back to the comedy show for a year and then a year later he came back and he had found his voice and his confidence and then they let him be irregular. But it is interesting that sometimes just one joke unlocks the key. beat to your whole approach. You know he had one joke. That was very honest and based on his suffering and then he realized. Oh Oh this is the way I I go down this path. You had to give a eulogy and I assume you wanted to give a eulogy at At his memorial Royal Service and several comics including Sarah Silverman Kevin Nealon gave eulogies. And you had to decide whether to be serious. Are Funny Tell us how you decided what Tony wanted to take. And then we'll hear what you had to say. I I I I you know. Sometimes you're just so grief stricken that you don't even know how something got You don't know how you wrote Rhode Speech or put together a memorial. Because you're you're just in a weird fever of sadness I I think we all felt that the best way to honour Gary would be to make a speech that was heartfelt and funny Gary would want it to be funny so I just try to be sincere and do it in a way that I thought would make Gary Laugh okay. So here's Judd. Appetites Eulogy at Gary Shan Links Memorial. Very emotional go down the rabbit hole gary but I feel like it's a lesson for me to just think very deeply about Kerry's life and his death and to learn from it it's odd that Prince died because Gary and prince were very similar. There really were no differences when you really get down to Gary. Was the prince of comedy. The mysterious complicated sexually. Ambiguous talent was endless. He was a brilliant performer. Who May or may not have been high the entire time he had great hair both stood up against the man to get their back and both were sexy as Larry Sanders show with carries purple rain?

"Sharon Leagues Next TV series. The Larry Sanders show was also Meta. It was a satire in which he starred as the host of a late night. Talk Show Kinda like the tonight night. Show let's start with a clip in which Larry's producer played by rip torn as asking Larry if he's read the new book about the competition and conflict between late night hosts. I think that book I gave you. Did you finish it. Oh yeah I read it on the plane man. I can't believe Leno actually hid in the closet so he can hear the whole network meeting this. A sickness estimate so obsessed with what people are saying about you right now that is what did he say about. Being not being mentioned much look everybody towns talking about it. Good jet appetite. Welcome back to fresh air. this new book and your documentary. It the book is a loving tribute to Garry shandling. It's also about how a Oh comic turns insecurity and emotional suffering into comedy. Garry shandling practice zen meditation as a way to deal with his stress. Insecurity the emotional pain and because of that becau because he was so into Zen Buddhism. You assumed he didn't hold onto much into terms of like possessions any any sentimentality. So after he died when you went into his house. You're surprised by all the stuff that you found own their pertaining to his life. Tell us a little bit about what you found that. You've worked into your documentary about him. Another book I I went to his house. And you know there's the immediate question of what do you do with all this stuff and I just as a as a friend who was willing to to help the family deal with it and as a hoarder I was interested in it. Not being lost. I you because to me everything about Gary was valuable in is valuable. He wasn't sentimental. And so for instance all of his awards were in a trophy case that he built next to his washer and dryer. Ah Sammy and his peabody. They're all in this little trophy case in the most disrespectful place in the house. And that's what Gary felt like. He also didn't have any the photos of family anywhere in his house and I just assumed that he didn't care about any of that stuff and toss it all and when I started opening closets it's and looking in boxes. I realized that he didn't throw everything in the garbage. He threw everything in boxes and just chuck them in closets. So for instance. His brother other died when he was ten years old and I'd never seen a photo of his brother but then I would open a box and there would be a hundred pictures of his brother so I don't know if he had a secret nostalgic or sentimental side but he did keep everything and he kept optus journals which he started in the nineteen seventies. And you're right that when when you found Garry shandling journals you wondered if it was okay for you to read them if you'd be you either violating his privacy or if you'd find out things about him that would make you like him less but you decided to read them. Did it change your impression of him. Oddly it changed my impression of him in the sense that I already already admired him. I knew he was a man who struggled but I was surprised that thirty years of journals. It's mainly contained Gary trying to talk to his positive voice so they weren't journals from the point of view of someone who was just trying to spew spew all their toxic stuff. A lot of us writing journals like that. We just want to get the bad voice out of our head and that's gary journals were like they were a voice talking to the panicked anxious voice so most of the journals were reminders to try to get out of ego to try to be more kind and loving to let go and it's thirty years of reminders about the type of person that he wants to be. You know Garry shandling really well but your first encounter with him was when you were in high school when you're sixteen and you had a radio show in which you'd interview comics and yet somehow manage to get really great comex to talk to you a high school kid on this tiny little high school radio station. How did you get Gary Shanley to talk with you? Well back then. There wasn't an internet or at least none that we knew and most comedians didn't didn't do long format interviews. There were no podcasts. And other than maybe some morning radio to promote gigs so I interviewed about fifty. Comedians Indians mainly by tricking their publicists into thinking that it wasn't a high school radio station that it was just a normal radio station. And what I remember about the interviews. He he was just really funny and was very willing to talk about how jokes and then tell me a bunch of jokes to show me the process and you know looking back. It's weird because he completely changed my life. He hired me to write for his show. He asked me to direct. I had never directed before. So it's weird that I knew him for so long. It almost feels predestined our relationship. And then ultimately being able to tell the story of his life Garry shandling came of age in comedy during the period. When if you wanted to make it big you had to do the tonight show show with Johnny Carson? It was the only late night show and it was really like the only venue where you're going to get a national audience and people can hear you your name so in in your documentary back Gary Shandling you play a clip from Garissa. First appearance on the tonight show so I thought we should hear that clip dinner. Last night needed a friend of mine's house and He has What do you call those things a baby? He has a baby and I'm a single. I don't know how to relate to this too. Well you know and the baby's crawling around on the carpet and this baby Loads up his diaper. You know and I'm sitting there you know. And the mother comes over and says isn't that adorable brandon made a gift for Daddy. Now I'm figuring this guy's got to be real easy to shop for on the Gary Shanley's first tonight show performance so you know it's funny. It's so not like anybody could have told that joke. You didn't need to be Garry shandling to tell that it's it's not a a personal joke. It's not something that really comes out of his experience. is just interesting since he became so personal as a comic since he did two shows that were basically a comedy version of his life with him playing himself. It's such a really big journey that he took comedic -ly I can only acquitted something like music you know the Beatles started out and may do I want to hold your hand or love me do. And then it turns into Sergeant Pepper and you know that joke is you know it's a it's a solid joke. There's been so much comedy since then that it seems seems mild at this point but Gary was a great joke writer. The great writer of one liners and and bits and he evolved into something that was much deeper and more heartfelt but like a lot of people it starts out with something simpler so in talking about how Garry shandling one from you know telling jokes that other comics could tell to do doing stand up. That was much more personal. That's one of the things I asked asked him about when I interviewed him in December of Nineteen Ninety two and he was supposed to show up at a studio but we got a call from his publicist saying that he had car are trouble and that He couldn't he couldn't make it so we just did a phone interview But anyways I was talking to him here about like developing up being his voice in comedy. Let's hear a short excerpt of that. And I should mention you. You include neck. I am honored to say you. Include an excerpt of this in in the documentary version of your stereo bacteria. Shanley's life so thank thank you for including that thank you. So here's an Xtra when you started doing stand up up Did you have a sense of who wanted to be on stage. And what what aspects of your own personality really wanted to to bring out your stage persona. It was really a nightmare. I had no idea who I was when I started and I was frightened to death and had no natural performing skills I'd never performed performed before in my life and to be thrown onto the standup.

One things you talked about is how characters in the novel and people well who you know in real life. I've had to deal with turning points in their allies where they have to decide. I'm at the age where I should try something new and if I try something new what is it you you went through a version of that before you decided to become a producer and take matters into your own hands in terms of finding roles and creating roles And you know you've spoken about how. How in your mid thirties like? There's just like no good roles for women what was available in those few worlds. What were you being offered A? What were you trying to fight four? I think it's interesting. People always say after you win the Oscar. Did your whole career change it doesn't you. You look around. They weren't suddenly there. It wasn't suddenly this huge influx of scripts. That are incredibly. They're not a secret safe. Keeping the great scripts in you you know and they unlock it when you win awards I was lucky to do a couple of great movies in my thirty s but not a lot and wild was a big deal for me because first of all I love Shell Straits writing her memoirs beautiful. But it's also oh a woman versus nature which I had never really seen on film. I'm and so. Many women are so deeply connected to nature yet. It's not something thing. We've explored We've seen every iteration of a man versus bear versus the wild west On Hiking Adventures. There's and but I haven't seen a lot of a woman alone on film as well. And what is that singular journey for a woman to find herself alone own in the wilderness. And she. She takes that hike. Because and this is based on a memoir. She takes that height because her mother died. She's grieving and she's been numbing herself with heroin and also by having a lot of sex with men who are not her husband therefore her marriage breaks up and I wanNA play a scene. Moy Oy your character is talking to a therapist and the therapist is trying to help her face with the real problem is and she's resisting it. The therapist is played by Randy. Shulman and as this clip starts your character's talking about how how much he misses her mother her late mother. She was the love of something else to say about it. I another couches in Kleenex. That's fifty bucks an hour therapy. This is ten bucks an hour therapy. So why do you think you were destroyed Jordan. Her mother's death. Is that your job to tell the bereaved that they're grieving too much people grieve and all sorts of different ways. I'm asking you about yours as mind so bad through using heroin and you're having sex with anyone who has not sure that these things are making you happy. Well that's where you're wrong because when I'm doing them I feel good and happy and when I'm not I feel like I WANNA die. You sleep with your husband to know. I'm sort of like a guy about sex. This prefer to be detached. You think. That's what guys are like. You are here. I see that poster everywhere and I hate it. Why would you ever want to teach the child? They don't matter you feel as though you matter. I know Roy Masters so who detached from you. You don't back not talking that's Witherspoon Witherspoon in a scene from wild. You know you said you wanted to make a movie were it was woman in nature or woman Against Nature Woman alone in nature the car kind of film. You don't typically see with a woman as the lead I mean. Can you imagine taking a thousand mile hike to help you get sober and get your head straight no no I. Can't I hike for a couple of hours exhausted either around the block. But that's why Cheryl story is so singular and so moving so she went from Feeling so broken in and self consumed to feeling like she was able to save her own life and what. I really love about the movie that you get to the end. And she walks across the bridge and she ends her hike with beautiful monologue that she's by herself in the world. She has no partner. She has no money she has has no job The love of her life. Her mother is gone but she's happy she's really happy and I think that's so profound and I had such a interesting experience working on the show where I had. I'm so verbal I talk so much movies that I didn't have anything to say I didn't have. I couldn't rely on my old tricks in that movie Sure telling jokes and ad-libbing and nobody talked to those just walking and it was really a challenge. So you want an Oscar for playing June Carter June Carter cash in the two thousand and two thousand five film walk the line she is country. Music Royalty Che's viewers from the the the Carter family the most famous family and country music and she married Johnny Cash As are you had to sing in that role had you sung professionally before A while when I was a little girl I wanted to be a country music singer so I trained for probably five six years. Vocal Coaches Agra in Nashville Tennessee. So I grew up with a lot of country music singers and their kids and it was just immersed. WHOA so you grew up with country music not on the radio but in real life no in real life you know well like many pearls daughter went to my school and Emmylou? Louis Harris is amy grant. Went to my high school and Yeah and she knew Johnny Cash's granddaughter When I was really little but that was just it was just part of you know Nashville? Just normal we we all kind of were immersed in the culture of country music. So what did you sing. What did I say when I was little? Oh well I wanted to be just like Dolly Parton. When I was little I went to write and I wanted to sing my own songs and I took piano lessons sends? I took singing lessons and then when I was about thirteen I went and I started studying Broadway at AC camps in New York In upstate New York and they would have all these experts.

"Are so deeply connected to nature yet. It's not something we've explored We've seen every iteration of a man versus bear versus the wild west on hiking adventures and But I haven't seen a lot of a woman alone on film as well. And what is that singular journey for a woman to find herself alone and and in the wilderness. And she she takes that hike because and this is based on a memoir. She takes that height because her mother died. She's grieving and she's been numbing herself herself with heroin and also by having a lot of sex with men who are not her husband therefore her marriage breaks up and I wanNA play a scene more Your character is talking to a therapist and the therapist is trying to help her face with the real problem is and she's resisting resisting it. The therapist is played by Randy Shulman And as this clip starts your character's talking about how how much he misses her mother her late mother. She was eleven something else to say about it. I thought there'd be couches in Kleenex. That's fifty bucks an hour therapy ten bucks an hour therapy so so why do you think you were destroyed by her mother's death. Is that your job to tell the bereaved that they're grieving too. Much people grieve all sorts of different ways. I'm asking knew about yours as mine. So bad through using heroin and you're having sex with anyone who has. I'm not sure that these things are making you happy. Well that's clean wrong because when I'm doing them I feel good and happy and when I'm not I feel like I wanna die with her husband to know I'm sort of like a guy about sex is preferred to be detached. You think that's what guys are like you are here here. I see that poster everywhere and I hate it. Why would you ever want to teach a child? They don't matter you feel as though you met her. I know I mattered. So who detached from you. You're not talking. That's the wrist witherspoon in a scene from wild. You know you said you want to make a movie where it was woman in nature or woman Against snitch woman alone in nature. The kind of film. You don't typically see with a woman as the lead I mean. Can you imagine taking thousand mile hike to help you get sober and get your head straight no no I. Can't I hike for a couple of hours exhausted. I around the block. Doc I mean but that's why Cheryl story is so singular and so moving so she went from Feeling feeling so broken and self consumed to feeling like she was able to save her own life. And what I really love about the movie is that you get to the end. And she walks walks across the bridge and she ends her hike with his beautiful monologue that she's by herself in the world. She has no partner she. She has no money she has no job The love of her life. Her mother is gone but she's happy she's really happy and I think that's so profound profound and I had such a interesting experience working on the show where I had. I'm so verbal. I talk so much in movies that I didn't have anything to say I didn't have. I couldn't rely on my old tricks in that movie Sure telling jokes and ad-libbing.

Let's hear a scene from big little lies and I don't WanNa get too deep into the plot to to play a clip so we're gonNA play something from the first episode of the second season And the story of big little lies is basically it's about abusive relationships. Friendships friendships between women conflicts between those friends marriage parenthood and also the willingness of these women to come together to cover up an accidental murder. So here's the scene. You play the bump mother of a teenage girl. WHO's about to go to college and the two of you have just had a meeting with a college counselor in which your daughter Abigail stormed out of the meeting insisting I don't even want to go to college and Europol that your daughter doesn't want to go to college so in this seen after you've gotten home you go into her bedroom to talk about? What happened Ed College Counselors Office? So was that all about it. Just don't think colleges for everyone that's all okay. So why is it not for you starting with the cost. It's really expensive so I'm assuming that if you're going to abandon that plan to go to college you have another idea. What is it to work for a start? Up specifically one The builds for profit housing for the homeless. Excuse me and unlike you know the privatized Shams like banks and credit card companies knees ours will make money well actually helping people. This is something real. I've been offered a position to start in June. You cannot be serious. I'm going to take you. You cannot mortgage your future over some sort of short term plan. I'm not doing that will the what are you doing. There are four million homeless people in America the average age being nine years old and I don't I don't care about homeless people what that is not what I I meant. I do care about homeless people. I just think you can give money to some charity while you actually attend college. I'm not going to college. Yes you are only one. You are going to college because I said so. And because you're not thinking because you said yes because I said you didn't go to college edge. That's exactly why you're going exactly because you will have no life you can hear so much disatisfaction in your characters sense of her own life in in that scene. That's a great scene Yeah Yeah we really talked about a lot but I think also Dealing with regret of this this this character Madeleine has a lot of regret of things that she did when she was young and she can't go back and she can't change them but one of them is you know. Her economic stability Her financial education her reliance on her marriage To Take care of her life Things that you know. I have a lot of friends that are dealing with. You know they. They contemplate the next chapter of their lives. They think well sure you give him my quarter corporate career or should I be in a different place. it was really fun to have these conversations to and Nicole Kidman and Laura dern now he added Meryl Streep this year to the cast which is incredible. Did you add her she at herself. Well the part out there was a part written for Nicole's mother in law and it was written with her in mind and it was sent to her and she had reached out to Nicole myself to say how much she loved to season and one of the series and And Yeah so we just we. We took a swing and it and it worked I. I'll never forget the day. Hey that she called Nicole and I said okay. Well I guess I'll help you out and be on your show and we were so happy it should There's a scene. It's the first scene where you meet her. And she is really condescending to you and you're just looking at her like in in shock like how can you even say that you me and must be so much fun to be condescended to like that by in a row by Meryl Streep to do scene work with this incredibly intelligent creative woman you have to know that as as was written on the page she. It didn't the character wasn't like that it. It was very wealthy but there wasn't a lot of description of character but she came in with this very particular look and she had a cross around her neck and she had these a little flat shoes on and her scarf tied just so and it it took me aback because I it was not what I expected. It was not what what was on the page and I knew from Scene One day one that I had better be on my toes I remember the first scene I when I get nervous. I sort of start talking. Sometimes I ad Lib and she just came right back at me with these very specific ad libs about the area that her character ter- lived in and why she didn't WanNa live next to a highway and I was like. Oh my goodness this is a mind. On fire. With creativity and intelligence elegance it was really just sublime experience working with her. You know one of the things you've talked about is how characters in the novel and people who you know in real life life. I've had to deal with turning points in our allies where they have to decide am at the age where I should try something new and if I try something new what is it. You went through a version of that before you decided to become a producer and take matters into your own hands in terms of finding rules and creating roles And you know you've spoken about. How in in your mid thirties like there's just like no good roles for women what was available in those few worlds? What were you being offered A? What were you trying to fight for I? I think it's interesting. People always say after you win the Oscar. Did your whole career change it. Doesn't you look around. They weren't suddenly there wasn't suddenly this. He influx of scripts. That are incredibly. They're not a secret safe. They're keeping the great scripts in you know and they unlock it when you win awards I was lucky to do a couple of great movies in my thirties. But not a lot. And it's wild was a big deal for me because first of all I love Shell Straits writing her memoirs beautiful but it's also a woman versus nature which I had never really seen on film. I'm an so many women.
Apple TV+ Hits Friday. Its Series (Mostly) Miss
"Let's start out with the explanation of apple TV this is a relatively new thing what we need to know about apple TV yeah this the views today actually if you bought an apple device after September ten graduations you already have it absolutely free for at least a year you can get a free trial by going to the apple TV app if not you can check out apple TV plus for four ninety nine a month it is launching a bunch of big buzz he shows the top of them is the morning show it's a drama starring Reese Witherspoon Jennifer Aniston and Steve corral and it's a dramatic show despite the stars that are in it about a morning show that separate the meat you scanned all all of the today show and throws it into turmoil there's also CD which is a game of thrones style drama about a world where everybody is blinds starring Jason Momoa from game of thrones bunch of other shows on there it's I watch all of them at this point it is very much a mixed bag the only one that I really liked and I really can't recommend to everybody this show called you can send the stars Hailee Steinfeld as young Emily Dickinson and it's kind of like euphoria beats thirty rock meets his drama beats a million different things uncategorized of all but I was fascinated I and like to at least one joke perhaps said the morning show is ridiculously entertaining but supercell Sirius spend fifteen million dollars an episode which is an insane amount of money but apple so they're putting all of their chips in the US but so far I think everybody in the office here to senator greens the shows are not great so if you have a free trial and do you want to check it out certainly I would suggest sampling the morning show sample taken standing if that all sounds interesting if you're into sci fi there's a show from Ronald D. Moore who created it Battlestar Galactica calls for all mankind was about an alternate history where America lost the space race very well made but also reporting frankly but it the other thing if you don't have a free trial I would hesitate to recommend spending even before ninety nine the account just because I've been plagued by a lot of tech issues today people have been proud of had problems logging into free trials finding the shows except for so give it some time listen to the bison that baby check it out in a couple of weeks if you're interested what are they doing on the morning show that's costing fifteen million per episode is that for the kids a great cast is is that a lot of that money goes out to them is that what it is I think a lot of money wanted to them it's also it's a gorgeous looking show it's beautifully shot by being the letter who started director jail for awhile after she corrected the action movie the peacemaker mess and she did deep impact immediately after that but you don't ton of TV since then it's at the starting the shot was very clearly spent a ton of money on this and again the ID it's kind of trashing it's like very much a trashy soap operas so I don't know why they spent that much money on it but I I don't have a lot of time I sat down to watch three solid hours this nonstop back to back yes I could not stop playing so just in terms of entertainment value I think it's worth it for that I'm trying to think of the track record of other networks when they rolled out a new schedule I remember when fox first became a network years ago it was kind of a slow rollout they just did a couple shows at the beginning and then build from there it's got to be tough to come up with a full schedule of shows and have a mall be successful and and great right that's almost impossible it's almost impossible and this is a big problem with apple TV plus right now that they're not taking the lessons but a lot of the other streaming that works done even Netflix did that very slowly enabled out house of cards then they had arrested development arch new black before they wrapped up to you thirty five new television shows every single day of the week apple TV plus is trying to be all of that media plea almost wanting more of their own each be within their own Netflix because the other thing that you should know about this for the apple TV plus price you're only getting the shows you're not getting everything that he is on TV that you would normally get from the iTunes store the TV store or anything like that yeah it's just the additional shows so I wish there were better it seems like they just gave people blank Jackson said to everyone we don't know what's going on the TV so again some of the stuff is get service desk very bad hopefully it'll get better they're certainly not giving it up anytime soon because all the shares regardless of quality have been picked up for a second season I gotta tell ya I'm surprised that that your stars like a Reese Witherspoon Jennifer Aniston and Steve Carell are selling out to apple like that it just seems weird to me you know they've found a big screen the alignment and that I think they said was they want to give creators the chance to really express themselves so this case it's it's produced by Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Aniston it's been playing very different parts I will say they're both fantastic at the show Jennifer Aniston is unlike you ever seen her before so I think that's what they're going for the chance and the same thing that other folks are jumping at is actually a new version of Oprah's book club the diffuse its first absent today and again I think it was just this blank check that apple had into them and said you do what you want you follow your muse and some people follow their views and absolutely wrong direction and hopefully of course correct a little bit and that somebody will give them a little more guidance going
