“He has been a valued member of the Kartemquin community since he first worked as a researcher on ‘Hoop Dreams.’ We will miss him greatly,” the statement added.
Siegel’s career in documentaries spans more than 20 years and was highlighted by “Trials of Muhammad Ali,” which premiered at the 2013 Tribeca Film Festival and aired on PBS’ “Independent Lens.” The series followed the late boxer’s struggles outside the ring as he converted to Islam, changed his name and fought to overturn the prison sentence he received for refusing to serve in the Vietnam War.
In a People exclusive trailer, the mother-daughter duo stars in the upcoming The Aspern Papers which follows Redgrave’s elderly Juliana Bordereau as she makes it her life’s mission to hide love letters she shared with her former lover, famed poet Jeffrey Aspern.
Redgrave stars opposite Richardson, who plays Bordereau’s niece, Miss Tina, and Jonathan Rhys Meyers’ ambitious editor Morton Vint, who will stop at nothing to obtain the papers.
This is the pair’s fourth film together. In 1968, Redgrave starred in The Charge of the Light Brigade
From 2009 to 2015, Poehler played the role of Leslie Knope, the competitive deputy director of the Pawnee Parks and Recreation Department, a proud waffle lover, and an even prouder feminist. When the NBC sitcom ended, there were hints that Leslie would go on to become the president. While addressing the possibility of a reunion, Poehler said she hadn't given much thought to Leslie's storyline, adding that
The pair, who I like to think are now best friends, were also joined by Ollie the donkey, who has definitely been perfecting his photo face for some time. The three were photographed at the Guards chapel in Westminster, and from the look on Camilla's face, we think she was pretty overwhelmed by the adorable little pony.
Over the last few years, "Baby, It's Cold Outside" has gone from being that cutesy duet you probably first heard in Elf to a song banned by radio stations over the holidays. The tune, which was written by Frank Loesser and popularized in the 1949 film Neptune's Daughter, has left fans feeling more and more uncomfortable due to its suggestive lyrics, which have led many to wonder if they describe an instance of date rape.
In a scene where a male character is trying to keep a woman from leaving, she sings "My answer is no," before he responds that she can't possibly leave because of the heavy snow. "What's the sense of hurting my pride?" he asks as she tries to leave again, before she eventually exclaims, "Say, what's in this drink?" It's that line in particular that

In addition to his toned abs and bulging biceps, the "In My Feelings" rapper showed off some new ink: a giant owl tattoo on his chest, likely as an ode to his Ovo record label and clothing company.

Most notable is Regina King, favored to be a frontrunner for the best supporting actress Oscar for her performance in If Beale Street Could Talk, who was shut out of the equivalent race at the SAG awards. Her acclaimed film, from Moonlight director Barry Jenkins, didn’t receive a single nomination.
Her category was full of shockers, including Margot Robbie for her role as Queen Elizabeth in Mary Queen of Scots, which up until now hasn’t received any awards love.
In his latest project, Jenkins adapts James Baldwin's book of the same name, the title of which alludes to W.C. Handy's "Beale Street Blues." It pays homage to the Memphis street that became a bustling cultural spot for black artists and activists in the 20th century. Baldwin grounds his novel in 1970s Harlem, but there's a timelessness to it that resonates with the buildup to the civil rights movements and the current Black Lives Matter movement. And while it respects context, the book also develops its characters' internal lives with a tragic story that'll haunt you.
