The “Boogie Nights” star says she’s thrilled to be nominated for an Oscar for her work in “Still Alice”- “To be even in conversation about it, to have people be excited about your work… You know we all love praise. It’s an honor to be discussed in this way. Of course—of course—I’m thrilled. And for a little movie like this, which we barely finished, that people made because they cared about it—and it’s a story about knowing what it means to be a human being, that’s what’s great too. And it makes you feel hope, right?”
Gearing up for the much-anticipated Oscars later this month, a bevy of beautiful people gathered at The Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills on Monday (February 2) for the 87th Annual Academy Awards Nominee Luncheon.
In her interview, the “Boogie Nights” actress explained that she’s pretty convinced that there is no God- “I learned when my mother died five years ago that there is no ‘there’ there. Structure, it’s all imposed. We impose order and narrative on everything in order to understand it. Otherwise, there’s nothing but chaos.”
For many movie and television fans, the SAG Awards trophy is the one that really counts, and on Sunday (January 25) the Screen Actors Guild handed out a slew of hardware to some very deserving recipients.
Not surprisingly, “Birdman” ended up winning the Outstanding Performance By a Cast in a Motion Picture honors, giving Michael Keaton, Naomi Watts and Edward Norton something to smile about.
Gearing up for an exciting evening, Jessica Chastain heaved over to Cipriani Wall Street in New York City on Tuesday night (January 6). The crimson-haired “Lawless” actress was in the house for the 2014 National Board of Review Gala where she mingled with fellow actresses like Julianne Moore.
Both Chastain and Moore were dressed to impress in Alexander McQueen and Dolce & Gabbana, respectively.
