“It’s an incredible time for Canadians in the industry and I think authors like Margaret Atwood who are so prolific and ahead of their time are making a difference. People outside Canada are noticing.”

The history of quaternions includes a mathematician gleefully carving his ideas into Dublin’s Broome Bridge, spurious negative numbers, and a war among physicists.
Critics raved, and lines stretched around the block, when The Joy Luck Club opened in 1993. The actors and director started to receive offers – and they thought the long drought of good movies and roles for Asians and Asian Americans in Hollywood was coming to an end. But “roadblocks proved shockingly resilient. Instead of ushering in a crop of Asian-American projects, The Joy Luck Club remained a token for more than two decades.” Will Crazy Rich Asians be different?
Ronan Farrow reported a long piece in The New Yorker on the accusations against him in July and added a follow-up report Sunday, September 9, days after the HuffPost’s Yashar Ali reported that the CBS exec wanted Janet Jackson’s career “destroyed” after the infamous “wardrobe malfunction.” Moonves is now gone from the network.
It’s because of Lisa Nishimura, basically, the vice president of original documentary and comedy programming who convinced Dave Chapelle to return to stand-up specials for the company.

The art show “includes 10 solar-powered signs installed in parks around the city. Each sign flashes climate-change-related phrases in English and in Spanish, Russian, French and other languages used in nearby neighborhoods.” The show – city-supported! – even gets environmental justice walking tours.

The director, Shane Black (whose friend was the abuser that he put in a scene with Munn), hasn’t bothered to apologize to Munn, and the cast members who were scheduled to appear with her at the Toronto Independent Film Festival backed out. Munn: “It’s honestly disheartening to have to fight for something so hard that is just so obvious to me. … It’s a very lonely feeling to be sitting here by myself when I should be sitting here with the rest of the cast.”
Many of the theatre’s founding investors in 1766 made that money directly from the city’s slave trade. The Old Vic’s artistic director: “The theatre is undeniably a part of the slave trade legacy in Bristol. … The building came out of that economic boom and I don’t think it is enough anymore to just assume that people then did not know the trade was wrong.”
And here’s the list of everyone else who won Creative Arts Emmys. Saturday Night Live and the live presentation of Jesus Christ Superstar also did quite well.
That depends: Are you a woman? Then you’re one of a very few. Geneva Robertson-Dworet, who wrote the third Tomb Raider and has written the 2019 Captain Marvel, says that can be an issue. “I’ve had male directors tell me, ‘I just want her to be a normal girl,’ for their hero. … And that’s really depressing because what’s a normal girl? Have you met a normal girl?”
