THE 64TH ANNUAL Academy Awards may have been the main event inside. But a fashion fete to rival the recent Paris collections —occasionally interrupted by gay protesters —captured the attention of onlookers all afternoon outside on the steps of the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion.

Under cloudy skies, dozens of mounted police in full riot gear moved the demonstrators across the street just moments before the limo parade began in earnest, unloading Hollywood’s elite before the Oscar arrival stands. Read More

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) – Nick Nolle, nominated for an Oscar for “The Prince of Tides,” says he likes fellow nominee Robin Williams’ idea for how to choose the winner: “We should all get in the pool and swim for it.”

Nolte and a host of other stars turned out Tuesday for the Academy Awards nominees’ luncheon at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.

Previous years have seen sparse turnouts, but half of this year’s nominees attended, including Warren Beatty, Geena Davis, Laura Dern, Jodie Foster, Anthony Hopkins, Diane Ladd, Michael Lerner, Juliette Lewis, Bette Midler and Barbra Streisand. Read More

Take One: Beaches (1988)

Whilst Bette Midler played the brash, showy, let-it-all-hang-out role in Beaches, Hershey was required to provide the flipside, a more fragile, conservative, buttoned-up role. Of course, in Garry Marshall’s timeless, weep-inducing-yet-still-somehow-sickeningly-enjoyable sorrow-marathon emotional barriers are royally broken down. As a solidly played, unashamedly heart-rending and, at times (all times, in fact), downright sentimentally treacly showcase of female solidarity, it works, and works very well indeed. (The late ‘80s was a fruitful time for the re-animation of such “woman’s” pictures; see also Steel Magnolias, Working Girl et al.) Beaches was a classic two-hander: one performance perfectly complemented the other. As the luxuriously-named San Franciscan heiress Hillary Whitney Essex, Hershey exuded just the right kind of well-turned-out class. Read More
