'FORD V FERRARI' ACTORS, DIRECTOR HAVE VERY DIFFERENT IDEAS OF 'DREAM MACHINES'

For one, the dream machine is a reality: a well-loved high-performance pickup truck. For another, the dream is right out of the movies: something Sean Connery would have driven in the '60s 007 classics. And for another, he doesn't dream of machines at all.

Two actors and the writer-director of the new big-screen "Ford v Ferrari" were asked to reveal the vehicle of their dreams, and each came up with decidedly different answers.

"I drive a Ford Raptor and I do love it," said actor Jon Bernthal. "it's kind of everybody's living room. So, it doesn't look like it's my dream machine, but it is definitely my dream machine"

Bernthal portrays Ford Vice President Lee Iacocca in the film, about Ford's efforts to boost sales by defeating longtime champ Ferrari at the 24 hour race, Le Mans.

The film's writer/director is James Mangold, whose credits include "Walk the Line" and "Logan," and has a thing for the classics.

"I have always, always admired the beauty of these classic old Ferraris and Aston Martins. I don't know if there is one - I don't know whether there's a realizable dream. But the cars of the '60s and '70s that we see in movies, less than the current ones. I think the lines of those cars from those periods are amazing. What I fear, though, is that if I actually owned one, I'd have to have a full-time staff just to keep it running. So, the fantasy would rapidly turn into the nightmare. But it is a glorious fantasy. I mean, when I watch those Sean Connery-Bond films and I look at that Aston he's driving. I'm like, 'Yeah, I'd take that.'"

Tracy Letts plays Henry Ford II in the movie, but it's all acting. Letts is not a car guy.

"I do not have a dream machine," Letts said. "I have never had a dream machine. I don't dream about machines. I'm really boring when it comes to this stuff, you know. My car was a Toyota, got totaled recently. So, now I drive in my wife's Toyota Camry. It couldn't be more boring."

MATT DAMON, CHRISTIAN BALE WEREN'T DOING THE DRIVING STUNTS IN 'FORD VS. FERRARI'

Actor Christian Bale is an action movie veteran in roles like "Batman Begins" and "Dark Knight," but he left the driving up to the professionals for his new racing film, "Ford vs. Ferrrari."

Bale and co-star Matt Damon brought their biographical action drama to Toronto International Film Festival premiere on Monday (9 September).

Directed by James Mangold, films tells the story of American automotive mavericks going up against Ferrari in the 1966 Le Mans endurance race.  

"I always do as much as I can," said Bale. "But I want the film to be the best film it can be. And believe me if Matt and I were doing our own driving, the racing sequences would not be the most dynamic racing you've ever seen on film, which this film has."

The two actors were focused on bringing to life the personalities and ingenuity of their characters.

"It was important that these guys, you know, came off that dynamic, that we portrayed it right and that they came off looking like the kind of the great guys that they were," said Damon. "They're very fondly remembered. Both of them."

For Bale, he was trying to embody a man who was fearless.

"The man was from a different era where you did every bloody thing by yourself. He was first and foremost a mechanic. He could build every car from the ground up," said Bale. "And then also someone who's willing to hurtle at 230 miles an hour in the '60s down the Mulsanne Straight, not known if his brakes are going to stop him at the end of it. He was literally ready to die with each and every race he embarks upon, you know?"

"Ford Vs. Ferrari" is released in the U.S. on November 15.

"Well I mean it was, it was an unambiguously positive spin on him which I, which was important because because he is an iconic person. And everybody I interviewed leading up to it and everything I read and all the documentaries I watched about him, like he was so beloved. Like everybody even people who were on the wrong side of a business deal with that guy somehow were like, 'Ah he got me. But I love him.' You know? So that was, that was important, you know. And then and then, Ken Miles, who Christian plays, who's who's lesser known, you know. It was, you know, it was important that these guys, you know, came off that dynamic, that we portrayed it right and that they came off looking like the kind of the great guys that they were. They're very fondly remembered. Both of them."

"Yeah, you know you're dealing with a man in Ken Miles who is somebody who … He was, he was there in D-Day, D-Day plus two or three. He liberated Belsen. The man was from a different era where you did every bloody thing by yourself. He was first and foremost a mechanic. He could build every car from the ground up. He understood it beautifully. And then Shelby recognized him as the absolute brilliant racer that he was and a real purist. So mentally, there's getting that mentality of a man who's a wonderful family man. And then also someone who's willing to hurtle at 230 miles an hour in the '60s down the Mulsanne Straight, not known if his brakes are going to stop him at the end of it. He was literally ready to die with each and every race he embarks upon, you know?"

Reporter: "Did you do your own stunts?"

Bale: "No! Man, come on. Those that … listen, I wouldn't be…. I always do as much as I can. But I want the film to be the best film it can be. And believe me if Matt and I were doing our own driving, the racing sequences would not be the most dynamic racing you've ever seen on film, which this film has."

And he really was, yeah, he really is. He really didn't belong in that in that company. He was the son of immigrants, in a blue blood company. He was a guy, he thought outside the box. He coveted change and sought change and at a company that really was sort of known for doing the same thing over and over again."

MARTIN SCORSESE OPENS NEW YORK FILM FESTIVAL WITH 'THE IRISHMAN'

Martin Scorsese brought the boys back home as he opened the New York Film Festival on Friday (27 SEPTEMBER 2019) with the world premiere of his new film "The Irishman."

The famed director finally raised the curtain on the director's long-awaited, 209-minute crime-drama opus with regulars Robert De Niro, Joe Pesci and Harvey Keitel.

Keitel has been with Scorsese from the start, starring in his NYU student film that premiered at the festival nearly 50 years ago.

"We started here with 'Street Scenes' 1970, Marty's student film, which I was in when we went to – we went down to Washington at the time of Kent State, and now here we are back again. Well, 'Mean Streets' came in between that, and now here we are again. So, it's great," Keitel said as he pumped his fists.

Based on Charles Brandt's book "I Heard You Paint Houses," ''The Irishman" has been in development, on and off, for more than a decade.

It stars De Niro as Frank Sheeran, a mafia hitman and high-ranking Teamster official. Shortly before his death, he confessed to killing Jimmy Hoffa.

Pesci plays the mob boss Russell Bufalino, and Al Pacino takes on the role of Hoffa.

The film also stars Ray Romano, who counts himself lucky that Scorsese didn't know who he was when he cast him in the role of a mob lawyer.

"He never seen or heard of the show, me, anything. We thought that maybe he hadn't seen the show. 'Nope, never heard of him.' He's not – TV is not his thing. He's a genius. He's a movie genius, which ended up being a blessing because he didn't have to separate the sitcom character from what he was seeing, so he hired me from that tape. So, I got very lucky that way. And then I guess I got into, onto his mailing list because when they stated casting this, he just gave me this role," Romano said.

The film uses an expensive de-aging process that makes De Niro, Pesci and Pacino appear years younger in significant sections of the movie. Nine cameras were used to film those scenes.

"The Irishman" was screened for members of the press Friday morning ahead of its evening red carpet premiere as the opening night gala for the New York Film Festival. The film's debut has loomed like few other events on the film calendar, and a rare frenzy greeted it at Lincoln Center's Alice Tully Hall.

"The Irishman" will open theatrically Nov. 1 and begin streaming on Netflix Nov. 27.

"Well, I will tell you how it came about. A show called 'Vinyl,' which Marty directed the pilot episode. So, my agent submitted me, and they said, 'put yourself on tape,' so I put myself on tape. I sent it in for a role. Marty looked at it, and his response back was, 'I like it. He's in the running. And I've never seen or heard of him.' He never seen or heard of the show, me, anything. We thought that maybe he hadn't seen the show. 'Nope, never heard of him.' He's not – TV is not his thing. He's a genius. He's a movie genius, which ended up being a blessing because he didn't have to separate the sitcom character from what he was seeing, so he hired me from that tape. So, I got very lucky that way. And then I guess I got into, onto his mailing list because when they stated casting this, he just gave me this role, which made it even scarier for me because in 'Vinyl,' he saw what I was doing on tape. In this one, he just gave it to me, so I'm like, 'how does he know I can do it.' And so, I broke out – I have eczema. It was horrible, you know, it was nerve-wracking. For a guy like me, I don't need something more neurotic, but here we are. I made it, somehow."

13. Jesse Plemons talking to reporter

14. SOUNDBITE (English) Ray Romano, actor, on how he got the role:

"Let me tell you, this guy Jesse…

(off camera) Jesse Plemons: "Oh shut up."

Ray Romano: "no, no. I'm talking about every time we would do that scene in the Bronx courtroom, where we would walk down the hall mean-mugging it, you know. And then the whole way back, after we cut. We were constantly saying…"

Jesse Plemons: "What…"

Ray Romano: "What are we doing here? What are we doing in this movie? It's incredible. I mean, its surreal. It's just nuts."

"You know, I was nervous as hell. And I didn't sleep very well on the nights before I had to work. And, you know, these guys have been doing it for so long. Way longer than I have, and I'm usually pretty comfortable at work. I'm not gonna lie to you, I was pretty nervous. The guys were great, especially Joe. Joe (Pesci) is such a cut up and he was so nice to me and, you know, make me espresso and we got along so well. You know, it's a trip for me because I'm playing Bob's boss. And my character is older than Bob's (De Niro) character, so it was a trip, and it was a lot for me to get my mind around. But I guess the hardest part was to just be relaxed at work, and you know, I managed it, but it was tough."

WAITITI ISN'T AFRAID TO ANNOY NAZIS OR FASCISTS WITH 'JOJO RABBIT'

Taika Waititi wasn't worried that making a comedy about Hitler was going to annoy Nazis or fascists, besides he's from New Zealand and according to him their style of comedy is "very polite."

"I don't think it's too soon to be telling these kinds of stories and adding humor to them because we constantly have to find new ways of telling these stories and keeping audiences engaged. And also, to be fair, it is 80 years this year since the 'Great Dictator' came out so, not really too soon," said Waititi.

"Jojo Rabbit" tells the story of a boy in the Hitler Youth army who discovers that his mother is hiding a Jewish girl in their house and things get complicated as the boy's imaginary friend is Hitler himself (played by Waititi).

Stephen Merchant plays a dark Nazi Captain. He explained why to this day, current world leaders continue to be compared to Adolf Hitler.

"It's less to do with the fact that they are explicitly like Hitler and maybe even share his beliefs. I think it's more about that praying on people's worst instincts. That's the thing that I think is always most chilling you know and that's why I feel like this I think still seems important because it's as much about how easily people swallow ideas wholesale and can get sucked into a way of thinking particular if the people around them are thinking the same way. That's sort of the thing which I think we're seeing again now. This, you know, as I say playing to the kind of base instincts of people and trying to portray other people as the other or be scared of them. They're the reason your problems exist and it's never as simple as that. I think that's why unfortunately the film still seems relevant."

The movie stars Scarlett Johansson as the young Nazi boy's mother. It also stars Alfie Allen, Rebel Wilson, Sam Rockwell and Roman Griffin Davis as the young boy.

In the film, both Johansson and Davis' blonde hair, bright blue eyes and fair skin match making their on-screen mother son relationship very believable. Johansson agreed.

"I was also surprised when I saw his photo. I was like, 'Oh my God it looks like more my kid than my kid.' Worked out perfectly," she said.

"Jojo Rabbit" is out in US cinemas on 18 October.

Like we're not really going to push things too far. So, there's never a danger for me that I was going to annoy certain people. I don't mind if I annoy Nazis or fascists. That's fine. I'm okay with that but with other people you know I never really felt any fear that it was going to, you know, be tipped over the edge or was going to make people too uncomfortable.

4. SOUNDBITE (English) Sam Rockwell, Stephen Merchant, Alfie Allen, actors, on finding comedy of portraying gay Nazis as actors:

Rockwell: "Well I actually-- it is the scene you're referring to is funny but a lot of, as you know, a lot of gay people were executed during the war. And so, I think that the whole thing is that they're keeping it a secret you know because they have to because otherwise, they get killed."

Allen: "Yeah that's where my research kind of led me to was looking at the dynamics of that and where it kind of places you in society in those days rather than kind of looking at what it was to be a Nazi."

Merchant: "But again I think that goes back to the absurdity of this time in which people. Were sort of having to act one way and behave another and suppress parts of themselves, I mean it's just you know it's such a ugly stew of confusion and, and again I think unfortunately you know this still goes on, right. You know that people-- how many times do you do you read the stories of people that are sort of, they were running gay conversion workshops and then they came out as gay. It's like well you know, people just struggling with their own complications or confusions it's just still, it still goes on."

Rockwell: "Yeah."

6. SOUNDBITE (English) Sam Rockwell, Stephen Merchant, Alfie Allen, actors, on comparing Hitler to other leader such as Boris Johnson:

"No, I think that the kind of comparisons with Hitler and leaders gets bandied around a lot. But I think it's more insidious than that. It's less to do with the fact that they are explicitly like Hitler and maybe even share his beliefs. I think it's more about that praying on people's worst instincts. That's the thing that I think is always most chilling you know and that's why I feel like this I think still seems important because it's as much about how easily people swallow ideas wholesale and can get sucked into a way of thinking particular if the people around them are thinking the same way. That's sort of the thing which I think we're seeing again now. This, you know, as I say playing to the kind of base instincts of people and trying to portray other people as the other or be scared of them. They're the reason your problems exist and it's never as simple as that. I think that's why unfortunately the film still seems relevant."

When this when this all happens like so many millions of people she's, you know, she's by vivacious and you know creative and and I think that's what attracted me so much to the character was that she felt like it's just this like colorful kind of she represented to me like everything that like isn't. Everything maternal and everything like good and encouraging and you know I felt very touched by her."

GURIRA, FERRERA HELP ANNOUNCE SAG NOMINATIONS

Danai Gurira and America Ferrera were on hand to help announce the Screen Actors Guild Awards nominations on Wednesday (11 DECEMBER) in West Hollywood, California.

Gurira was part of the ensemble that won the SAG award for "Black Panther" at the ceremony last January.

SAG-AFTRA President Gabrielle Carteris said the nominations represented the diversity of movies and TV series over the past year.

"The announcements were clearly diverse. I think what's wonderful is that we have the opportunity to see programing in film and in TV that allows us to nominate. I mean, we need that diversity in order to be able to nominate. So it's definitely out there that we're seeing it. And I like the fact that I don't feel like it's just a fad," she said. "I feel like people are really embracing the understanding that we need to reflect our society. Our storytelling is really doing that now more than ever before. And I think that this was an exciting day because the stories that we're seeing that are being recognized are really different than we've ever seen before."

Scarlett Johansson received two individual nominations, "Parasite" scored a best ensemble nod and both "The Irishman" and "Once Upon a Time ... in Hollywood" solidified their Oscar favorite status in the nominations.

The SAG Awards are one of the most closely watched Academy Awards bellwethers because, historically, a best ensemble nomination from the actors is usually a prerequisite for any best-picture contender's resume.

On Wednesday, the actors guild, as expected, nominated Martin Scorsese's Netflix opus and Quentin Tarantino's Hollywood fable for best ensemble, along with a pair of individual acting nods: Al Pacino and Joe Pesci for "The Irishman" and Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt for "Once Upon a Time." Each film also added stunt ensemble nominations, giving "The Irishman" and "Once Upon a Time" a co-leading four nominations.

"Well, I think it was a really exciting morning. The announcements were clearly diverse.

So it's definitely out there that we're seeing it. And I like the fact that I don't feel like it's just a fad.

And I think that this was an exciting day because the stories that we're seeing that are being recognized are really different than we've ever seen before. So I love that."

(Reporter: "Give me an example of that.")

Carteris: "Well I can't. Because I'm the president. But all of that you saw -- 'Kominsky Method,' you can see that. You can see, 'Jojo Rabbit.' I mean, all these are shows that are -- they're interesting, right? It's all, you know, from 'The Marriage,' all the different shows. I think that they're just we're seeing stuff that is -- it's exciting."

8. SOUNDBITE (English) Gabrielle Carteris, SAG-AFTRA President:

"Well, there's more work now, opportunities than ever before. I think people are afraid because we don't know what the future looks like. But I actually am excited about it. I think that we need to embrace it. Our industry is changing. We're going to see real changes in the next year or two because of technology. And I do think it creates more access for performers to be able to work."

PHOENIX WOULD NEED TO 'FEEL INSPIRED AGAIN' TO RETURN TO JOKER

Don't bet on a "Joker" sequel for Joaquin Phoenix anytime soon.

The actor, who won a Golden Globe award Sunday (5 JANUARY 2020) for his performance in Todd Phillips' blockbuster, seemed annoyed when asked about his work in the film when speaking to press backstage after his win.

"Isn't this old news?" Phoenix asked. "I thought I had been talking about this for six months.  Right?"

As for a sequel?

"I don't think that I've ever done too many predictable things," Phoenix said. "So, if that came up, it's not as if we're following some rulebook. It's because we feel inspired again to explore the character more thoroughly. I think the only reason for me to do it."

Beverly Hills, California, 5 January 2020

1. SOUNDBITE (English) Joaquin Phoenix, Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture - Drama:

(Reporter: "What was in the process of getting into that mindset?")

"Isn't this old news? I thought I had been talking about this for six months. Right? I feel like I've answered these questions. You want to hear a different version of it? I'll try to change it slightly, or what should I do? Um, OK, well it was a long process. I think the way that I worked on this was quite erratic. I didn't attack it linearly.

2. SOUNDBITE (English) Joaquin Phoenix, Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture - Drama:

I don't think that I've ever done too many predictable things. So, if that came up, it's not as if we're following some rulebook. It's because we feel inspired again to explore the character more thoroughly. I think the only reason for me to do it. So that's all I can say about aht."

3. SOUNDBITE (English) Joaquin Phoenix, Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture - Drama:

"This is the first time I've ever eaten the food at this ceremony. I thought it was excellent. I was so moved by the decision to make tonight plant based. It is such an important step. The SAG awards, the Critics' Choice awards, the Governors Ball, whatever else there is, needs to do it as well. It is a very important statement. Animal agriculture is the third-leading cause of climate change, uses 70-percent of the water. It pollutes most water. The statistics are staggering and I think we're coming to a point now where the evidence is irrefutable and undeniable. I think it is somewhat where we realized how poisonous tobacco was and second-hand smoking that made it illegal to smoke in public places. I think now consuming animal products is no longer just a personal choice. It is having a drastic and vast consequence on the rest of the world and all of us. And so I think that it was incredibly brave and compassionate of HFPA to make that bold decision. I really commend them. I've never been so proud to attend an awards ceremony as I am tonight."

GERWIG AND 'LITTLE WOMEN' CAST PREMIERE FILM IN PARIS

Greta Gerwig and her "Little Women" cast gathered in Paris on Thursday (12 DECEMBER) to premiere the book adaptation at a theatre along the Champs-Elysees.

The actress-turned-director was joined by Saoirse Ronan, Florence Pugh, Timothee Chalamet and Louis Garel at the premiere at the Gaumont Champs-Elysees.

"I read the book again when I was an adult and I'd read it so many times when I was a kid and it was so part of the way I was, it felt like my book. And then when I read it as an adult, I found it was so modern and urgent and stressing it really at the core of it. It's about women, ambition, money and art. And I felt like that was just very 2020, 2019 tale to tell," Gerwig said.

Gerwig adapted Louisa May Alcott's 1868 novel about the March sisters, but adding meta dimensions outside of the book. Jo March (Saoirse Ronan in the film), the book's aspiring writer was herself a kind of stand-in for Alcott. Alcott married her off by the end.

In Gerwig's version, the seventh big-screen "Little Women," Jo becomes a synthesis of the character, of Alcott and of Gerwig herself, stretching the struggle of what it is to be a female writer from 19th century New England to present day.

"I feel like the legacy of Jo March has already been evident in how many different kinds of women have cited her as an inspiration for their work of art. And it's not just me, but also Patti Smith and J.K. Rowling and Simone de Beauvoir and Elena Ferrante and Gloria Steinem, and that's just a few women who said Jo March was my girl. So I think that the thing that Louisa May Alcott and Jo March did has paid dividends in the 20th and 21st century," Gerwig said.

The film will open in theatres in France on January 1.

"When I was about 8 years old, my gran actually read it to me and it was one of her favorites when she grew up, as a classic. So I was there in a house on the weekends and she would read me chapters of the book, so I known these girls from a young age and I reread it when I was an adult, and I feel you pull different things when you're all grown up reading a book. And I sadly found more things about these girls when I was older."

"I know what hasn't been done as much before Is that Louisa May Alcott's story -- and her character -- is much more a part of who Jo is, so with things like -- just her relationship with her raising was in the focus, opposed to her relationship with Laurie, that was something that we really wanted to find. And also, I think her kind of sexuality and the fluidity -- she just doesn't conform to that either."

17. Various of actor Louis Garrel

18. SOUNDBITE Louis Garel, actor:

"That movie is also to create like a new heroine, Jo March, who wants to -- just want to fight for herself and and to become an artist in the time where it was not so easy for a woman to become an artist."

19. Various of the movie poster in the cinema

20. SOUNDBITE Louis Garel, actor:

"You have to speak about the world, not the Europe and the U.S., you know. In other parts of the world sometimes to be a woman, it's not easy at all. So I think it's a good thing to have that movie, a new film showing a young woman who's supposed to be married and the only objective that she had in her life is fighting for herself and fighting for a heart."

TIMOTHEE CHALAMENT, FLORENCE PUGH, GRETA GERWIG AND SAOIRSE RONAN SHARE BEHIND THE SCENES MOMENTS OF 'LITTLE WOMEN'

It is a time of celebration in Greta Gerwig's household.

Not only is she releasing her hotly anticipated "Little Women" adaptation, but her partner Noah Baumbach's "Marriage Story," is one of the year's most buzzed about movies too.

And they both star Laura Dern.

"Yes, it is a house of celebration," smiled Gerwig. "No, it's amazing. It's sort of wild. I feel like we keep realizing everything too late, like. I mean, we both knew we'd used Laura Dern, but then now it really feels like, 'Oh, did you guys what happened there?' But I didn't we didn't consciously. I don't know. Yeah. Yeah. It's amazing. It's wonderful. It's a great time."

"Little Women" stars Timothee Chalamet, Florence Pugh, Emma Watson and Saoirse Ronan - and is based on Louisa May Alcott's seminal novel.

Ronan and Gerwig collaborated before on 2017's "Ladybird" - also starring Chalamet - which was written and directed by Gerwig as her solo directorial debut. Ronan said approaching someone else's subject matter was part of the joy of "Little Women."

"I think I think there was something really exciting for the two of us about like coming to somebody else's material and having our own connection to it and ongoing going, 'Oh, what about this thing? And let's focus on this and let's try this,'" she said, adding it's great to know how well she works with Gerwig.

The set of "Little Women" was unsurpisingly female heavy. The narrative focusses on the trials and tribulations of four sisters, Amy, Jo, Beth and Meg - as they navigate different paths through life. Timothee Chalamet plays neighbor Laurie, who grows up with the girls.

He said on set, he was welcomed into the girl gang.

"Thankfully, they were very kind of me in that regard. I mostly didn't want me there and then they beat the s**t out of me," he smiled.

He added that, despite the cast getting on well, "everyone loved each other," the main focus was getting the work done.

"With these group scenes where if you're really doing your job as an actor, you're present in every moment," he said.

I think there was something really exciting for the two of us about like coming to somebody else's material and having our own connection to it and going, oh, 'What about this thing? And let's focus on this and let's try this.' And, you know, you know, if you're going to work with someone for a second time, it's obviously because you like them and you do good work together and you push each other. And it was really nice to come together and know all of those things and know that we didn't need to spend energy trying to figure out if we had that relationship already because we do. So I think it just made us more explorative with Jo."

Gerwig: "Agreed. No, it was like. It was also when you work with someone more than once, then I think it enables you to be a little bit more brave and to push each other more. And then, you know. I don't know, I like, that's what I've always loved in cinema is directors and actors who've built relationships over years and they've explored lots of different kinds of characters. And then I think it gives you safety so you know you can go farther with someone than you've gone before. And so I hope she'll pick up the phone the next time I call."

Ronan: "You also have that thing as well. Defintely as an actor like working with you again, where it's like if I mess up with something, I'm not worried about her like not hiring me again."

Gerwig: "Oh, no, no. God, no, no. But I also feel like.. and also because if you do one that was nice and whatever, then you also you're like, 'I'm not going to make you look stupid. Yeah. Like, well, I'm not going to like, don't worry, you know.' But, um. Yeah. So there's that trust."

Chalamet: "That is because Jacqueline Durran who did the costumes on this is like the best costume designer. In fact, I think, I think the movie she did with Saoirse that she won an Oscar for 'Atonement.' Anyway, it's just like in my trailer sometimes I would have three things hanging in the morning. You should be like, you know, mix and match. So I really would kind of go crazy with the stuff. In fact, there's an Easter egg of a scene where I had a bandana on my wrist, and I said to Jacqueline, 'Do you think this is alright?' And she said 'Yeah, yeah that's good,' and then halfway through the day Greta was like, 'What is that bandana on your wrist? Take it off' and I was like 'We've shot half the scene,' and she was like 'I don't care. Take that off.' I was like 'alright'"

Pugh: "I actually remember once coming down in one of my Christmas child, Amy suits and you came in and you were like, 'That is sick.'"

Chalamet: "Which scene?"

Pugh: "One of the Christmas days when I had like the petticoat thing."

Chalamet: "It was your idea to have the angel wings."

Chalamet: "That was really a great detail in that scene."

Pugh: "Yeah. When I watched it I was like yes."

But these were, you know, some of those days were long and towards the end I think there was an element of exhaustion. Yeah, a bit of, also I think we all get opportunities in this movie to do great scenes, you know, and then sometimes with these group scenes where if you're really doing your job as an actor, you're present in every moment. And yet there might be 30 takes from 12 angles. And you might just be you whatever so?"

CYNTHIA ERIVO, 'HUSTLERS' DIRECTOR LORENE SCAFARIA AND 'MARRIAGE STORY' DIRECTOR NOAH BAUMBACH DISCUSS LACK OF NOMINATED FEMALE DIRECTORS

Some Golden Globe nominations seemed like locks: Joaquin Phoenix, Tom Hanks, Adam Driver and Eddie Murphy. But there were other notable snubs and surprises.

Only men made the best director category: Bong Joon Ho for "Parasite," Sam Mendes with "1917," Todd Phillips for "Joker," Martin Scorsese with "The Irishman" and Quentin Tarantino for "Once Upon a Time ... in Hollywood."

Notable female directors snubbed this year included Greta Gerwig for "Little Women," Marielle Heller, who directed "A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood," Lulu Wang of "The Farewell" and Lorene Scafaria of "Hustlers."

"I think we have to look at the root of the problem. I mean, there's just sexism and misogyny. And I think this was a really tough year. I think it was a really competitive year. A lot of great films were made by women and men—so (an) incredibly stacked category, honestly," said Scafaria. "But in general, I think it's about access, opportunity—I think it's about valuing women's stories differently."

Director Noah Baumbach who's in a relationship with Gerwig said there were many female-directed movies he enjoyed.

"I can't speak to the process, but I can say that many of my favorite movies this year were made by women. You know, Lulu Wang's 'The Farewell'—loved. Loved Joanna Hoggs 'The Souvenir,' Greta Gerwig's 'Little Women' is a masterpiece," he said. "(I) just loved those movies."

However, director/actor Mark Duplass wasn't as diplomatic.

"I was on my way here and I just did like an Instagram post congratulating all the female directing nominees," he said. "And then I said, 'Oh, wait! They somehow didn't get nominated this year.' And I think that's—I think it's super fucked up, honestly. And they're great movies. And listen, I know you have to judge a movie on its merit, but this is odd and it's wrong."

Duplass went on to say there are those in Hollywood who only care about how much money films bring in.

"Unfortunately, there's just a group of people in Hollywood who are only going to be swayed once they see that the dollar signs are in that favor, you know. But awards shows like this are important and they need to wake up and do a better job."

But Cynthia Erivo, who starred in "Harriet" directed by Kasi Lemmons, said she hopes change will come soon.

"I'm hoping that the fact that there has been an outcry this year will start making people do things differently. There isn't really any excuse for the lack of diversity. And I'm hoping that we get to see more of us—more stories, more different stories being told—and those stories being celebrated as well, because there are beautiful stories that should be here as well. And I hope that this is just the start of something better."

A lot of great films were made by women and men—so (an) incredibly stacked category, honestly. Some legends came out and made some great films so it's a tough year to really, necessarily know what to do about it this year. But in general, I think it's about access, opportunity—I think it's about valuing women's stories differently. So I think it's worth looking at what people consider valuable cinematic."

"Well, I think certain award ceremonies do a better job of inclusion. And I think that we're in the midst of, at least in terms of female directors, they see change right now and the data is coming out. Unfortunately, there's just a group of people in Hollywood who are only going to be swayed once they see that the dollar signs are in that favor, you know.

DAYS AFTER U.S. KILLING OF IRAN GENERAL, '1917' DIRECTOR SAM MENDES SEES SIMILARITIES BETWEEN CURRENT EVENTS AND PRE-WORLD WAR I TENSIONS

Just hours before Sam Mendes won a Golden Globe award for his epic war drama "1917," the director said he saw similarities between the U.S. killing of an Iran general Thursday (2 JANUARY 2020) and pre-World War I tensions.

"Gosh, I think it puts it in perspective," Mendes commented on the red carpet as he entered The Beverly Hilton Hotel Sunday (5 JANUARY 2020).

"Yes, I think there are great similarities with what the world is like at the moment of what it was like before the first world war," Mendes continued. "Great nationalism, patriotism, huge debates over borders. Europe is in flux again. All of those things a great empire is, you could argue (are) beginning to fade. That is the American empire. And it indicates at first world war it was the Ottoman Empire. So, you know, there are similarities. You know, the war is always — the world is always in flux. We're not at war at the moment. We're lucky to have been born in peacetime. But, you know, it's sobering always to have a reminder of what can happen if things get out of control."

Mendes' "1917" won Golden Globes for best motion picture drama and best director.

1. SOUNDBITE (English) Sam Mendes, director:

"Gosh, I think it puts it in perspective. Yes, I think there are great similarities with what the world is like at the moment of what it was like before the first world war: great nationalism, patriotism, huge debates over borders. Europe is in flux again. All of those things a great empire is. you could argue, beginning to fade. That is the American empire. And it indicates at first world war it was the Ottoman Empire. So, you know, there are similarities. You know, the war is always — the world is always in flux. We're not at war at the moment. We're lucky to have been born in peacetime. But, you know, it's sobering always to have a reminder of what can happen if things get out of control."

2. SOUNDBITE (English) Andrew Scott, actor:

"What we have to remember is that the people that go and fight for us are, and this is what in 1917 happened, is that there are children that we're sending out to war. These aren't, you know, in the first world war, there were, you know, teenagers being sent out to do things that they are not prepared to do, equipped to do — emotionally or physically. And, yeah, it's very important that we remember who has to do the fighting for us."

3. SOUNDBITE (English) Bong Joon Ho, director:

"I always watch news, like everyone all over the world, and I'm sure many Americans feel the same way. It would be great just to maintain peace and avoid war.

4. SOUNDBITE (English) Noah Baumbach, director:

"I mean, you know, I think I'm, as everybody, sort of catching up to it as we all get to figure it out. But, you know, I mean, it's a serious situation. And, you know, I try not to look at my phone doing the ceremony to see what's going on in."

Los Ángeles (EEUU), 18 ene (EFE/EPA).- (Imagen: Eugene García). La cinta "1917", del director británico Sam Mendes, se llevó hoy el premio a la mejor película en los galardones del Sindicato de Productores (PGA, en inglés), unos reconocimientos que, tradicionalmente, son un muy buen indicativo de por dónde pueden ir los Óscar.En los últimos diez años, el ganador del premio a la mejor película en la gala de los PGA se hizo en ocho ocasiones con la estatuilla a la mejor cinta en los Óscar.Solo "The Big Short" (2015), que perdió ante "Spotlight" (2015) en los Óscar, y "La La Land" (2016), que no pudo obtener la estatuilla ante "Moonlight" (2016), alteraron en la última década la correlación entre los ganadores de los PGA y los triunfadores de la gala de la Academia de Hollywood.De ahí que la victoria de "1917" en la 31 edición de los PGA, que acogió hoy el Hollywood Palladium de Los Ángeles (EEUU), tenga un significado muy especial de cara a la ceremonia de los Óscar que se celebrará el próximo 9 de febrero."Tengo que rendir tributo a los increíbles esfuerzos de cada uno de los miembros del reparto y el equipo (de '1917')", dijo en su discurso de agradecimiento Sam Mendes, que además de director y guionista es también uno de los productores del filme.Mendes aseguró, asimismo, que crear esta película bélica sobre la I Guerra Mundial, que tiene la asombrosa apariencia de estar rodada en un único plano secuencia, ha sido de lejos "la mejor experiencia" de su carrera."1917", que ya triunfó en los Globos de Oro con los galardones a la mejor cinta dramática y al mejor director, venció hoy a las también nominadas "The Irishman", "Jojo Rabbit", "Joker", "Knives Out", "Little Women", "Marriage Story", "Parasite" y "Once Upon a Time... in Hollywood".En las otras dos categorías de cine se impusieron esta noche "Apollo 11", que se hizo con el premio al mejor documental; y "Toy Story 4", que se anotó la estatuilla a la mejor película de animación.En cuanto a la televisión, "Succession" ganó en el apartado de mejor serie dramática, "Fleabag" se coronó como mejor comedia, y "Chernobyl" fue nombrada mejor serie limitada.La distinción a la mejor producción de no ficción para la pequeña pantalla fue para "Leaving Neverland" mientras que "RuPaul's Drag Race" se llevó el reconocimiento al mejor show competitivo en televisión.Además, el premio al mejor programa de televisión en vivo o "talk show" fue para "Last Week Tonight with John Oliver" y el galardón para la mejor película televisiva fue a parar a "Apollo: Missions to the Moon".Los PGA aprovecharon también la ocasión para dar premios honoríficos a Marta Kauffman (cocreadora de "Friends"), Octavia Spencer, los productores de "Bombshell" (incluida Charlize Theron), la compañía Plan B (fundada por Brad Pitt) y Ted Sarandos (jefe de contenidos de Netflix).La gala, una de las múltiples ceremonias que pueblan anualmente la temporada de premios de Hollywood, contó con la presencia de numerosas estrellas como Jane Fonda, Al Pacino, Eva Longoria, Robert de Niro, Reese Witherspoon, Margot Robbie, Greta Gerwig, Melissa McCarthy, Laura Dern, Constance Wu y Frances McDormand.Los premios del PGA son los primeros en entregarse este año de los galardones de cada uno de los gremios de Hollywood: los del Sindicato de Actores (SAG) se celebrarán el domingo, los del Sindicato de Directores (DGA) tendrán lugar el 26 de enero, y los del Sindicato de Guionistas (WGA) se darán a conocer el 1 de febrero.

HATS OFF TO TOM CRUISE - BRAD PITT AND LEONARDO DICAPRIO DISCUSS TEAMING UP FOR 'ONCE UPON A TIME IN... HOLLYWOOD'

Brad Pitt may play a stuntman in his latest movie, but that doesn't mean he'll be trying any daredevil antics on his next film set.

"Hats off to Tom," said the "Once Upon a Time in... Hollywood" star, referencing fellow actor Tom Cruise. "You couldn't begin to keep up with him. So, I say if a stunt man could do it, I'll be reading a book, having a coffee."

Pitt's co-star, Leonardo DiCaprio agrees.

"If there is something that I can do that makes the film better of course I'll give it a try. But by no means are we as ambitious or courageous as Mr Cruise when it comes to that."

"Once Upon a Time ... in Hollywood" made its splashy premiere Tuesday evening at Cannes. Directed by Quentin Tarantino, the movie is about an actor (DiCaprio) in TV Westerns and his stunt double (Pitt) in 1960s Los Angeles, set against the backdrop of the Manson family murders.

  

It's the first time DiCaprio and Pitt have made a feature together, though the two co-starred in a 2015 short directed by Martin Scorsese.  

"We've crossed paths since the early '90s certainly," says Pitt.  "I lamented at times that we only, we go off and we do our individual projects and we really only get to cross paths sometimes around awards or something or an event. So it was really a great pleasure. I have a great respect for Leo and Leo's work and for us to take on this love letter to an industry and a city we love was pretty damn fun."

It's a sentiment echoed by the 44-year-old DiCaprio.

"We truly grew up in this industry together and kind of our careers broke around the same time. We haven't been close per se but we have all the same sort of cultural and cinematic references. We know all the same people."

"So, as soon as Quentin handed us the script and he talked about this duality, two sides of the same coin, this relationship between a stuntman and the sort of struggling actor and how they've created this bond with one another in order to survive in the industry, we kind of fit into those shoes immediately."

"Once Upon a Time ... in Hollywood" is competing for the Palme d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival ahead of its theatrical release in July.

France Cannes Winners Reax

BONG JOON-HO WINS FIRST PALME D'OR FOR KOREA WITH 'PARASITE'

South Korean director Bong Joon-ho's raucous social satire "Parasite," about a poor family of hustlers who find jobs with a wealthy family, won the Cannes Film Festival's top award, the Palme d'Or, on Saturday (25 MAY 2019).

The win for "Parasite" marks the first Korean film to ever win the Palme. In the festival's closing ceremony, jury president Alejandro Inarritu said the choice had been "unanimous" for the nine-person jury.

The genre-mixing film, Bong's seventh, had arguably been celebrated more than others at Cannes this year, hailed by critics as the best yet from the 49-year-old director of "Snowpiercer" and "Okja."

"It's the 100th anniversary of the cinema in Korea this year. To celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Korean cinema, I think the Cannes Film Festival has offered me a very great gift," Bong told reporters after the ceremony.

It was the second straight Palme victory for an Asian director. Last year, the award went to Japanese filmmaker Hirokazu Kore-eda's "Shoplifters," also a compassionate parable about an impoverished family.

"We shared the mystery of the unexpected way this film took us through different genres, speaking in a funny, humorous and tender way of no judgement of something so relevant and urgent and so global," Inarritu told reporters after the ceremony.

Many of the awards on Saturday were given to social and political stories that depicted geopolitical dramas in localized tales, from African shores to Paris suburbs.

The festival's second place award, the Grand Prize, went to French-Senegalese director Mati Diop's feature-film debut, "Atlantics." The film by Diop, the first black female director ever in competition in Cannes, views the migrant crisis from the perspective of Senegalese women left behind after many young men flee by sea to Spain. Sylvester Stallone presented the honor.

Although few quibbled with the choice of "Parasite," some had expected Cannes to make history by giving the Palme to a female filmmaker for just the second time. Celine Sciamma's period romance "Portrait of a Lady on Fire" was the Palme pick for many critics this year. Instead, Sciamma ended up with best screenplay.

In the festival's 72-year history, only Jane Campion has won the prize in 1993 for "The Piano," tying with Chen Kaige's "Farewell My Concubine."

Best actor went to Antonio Banderas for Pedro Almodovar's reflective drama "Pain and Glory." In the film, one of the most broadly acclaimed of the festival, Banderas plays a fictionalized version of Almodovar looking back on his life and career.

"The best is still to come," said Banderas, accepting the award.

The Belgian brothers Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne, who have already twice won the Palme d'Or, took the best director prize for "Young Ahmed," their portrait of Muslim teenager who becomes radicalized by a fundamentalist imam.

The third-place jury prize, presented by Michael Moore, was split between two socially conscious thrillers: The French director Ladj Ly's feature-film debut "Les Miserables" and Brazilian director Kleber Mendonça Filho's "Bacurau."

Ly has called his film an alarm bell about youths living in the housing projects of Paris' suburbs. Filho viewed his feverish, violent Western about a rural Brazilian community defending itself from a hard-to-comprehend invasion as a reflection of President Jair Bolsonaro's Brazil.

British actress Emily Beecham won best actress for her performance in Jessica Hausner's science-fiction drama "Little Joe." The jury also gave a special mention to Palestinian director Elia Suleiman's "It Must Be Heaven."  

The Camera d'Or, an award given for best first feature from across all of Cannes' sections, went to César Díaz's "Our Mothers," a drama about the Guatemalan civil war in the 1980s.

The ceremony Saturday brought to a close a Cannes Film Festival riven by concerns for its own relevancy. It had to contend, most formidably, with the cultural force of "Game of Thrones," which concluded during the festival. The continuing rise of streaming was also a constant subject around Cannes.

Two years ago, Bong was in Cannes' competition with "Okja," a movie distributed in North America by Netflix. After it and Noah Baumbach's "The Meyerowitz Stories" _ another Netflix release _ premiered at Cannes, the festival ruled that all future films in competition needed French theatrical distribution. Netflix has since withdrawn from the festival on the French Riviera. (Indie distributor Neon will open Bong's "Parasite" in North American theaters later this year.)

Bowing to pressure from 5050x2020, the French version of Time's Up, the festival this year released gender breakdowns of its submissions and selections. Cannes said about 27% of its official selections were directed by women. The 21-film main slate included four films directed by women, which tied the festival's previous high.

Cannes had its share of red-carpet dazzle, too. Elton John brought his biopic "Rocketman" to the festival, joining star Taron Egerton for a beachside duet after the premiere. And Quentin Tarantino unveiled his 1960s Los Angeles tale "Once Upon a Time ... in Hollywood," with Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio, 25 years after the director's "Pulp Fiction" won the Palme d'Or.

Tarantino, who attended the closing ceremony, didn't go home empty handed. On Friday, a prominent pooch in his film won the annual Palme Dog, an award given by critics to Cannes' best canine.

6.Medium of Mati Diop

7.SOUNDBITE (English) Mati Diop director – on what she thought when she heard her name:

"I'm, I don't think I have words. I went through a lot of different emotions. I was also a bit panicked. You know, when I was sitting in the movie theater and I was seeing all the actors, directors of the world on the screen and I was like. I was like 'How am I gonna do?' No no. I was really impressed. I was very impressed. This is very impressing for me."

8.Medium of Antonio Banderas

9.SOUNDBITE (English) Antonio Banderas, actor – on the buzz surrounding his performances:

"But you had to be very careful with those rumors, you know. And the buzz and this and that because there was a huge rumor that Pedro Almodovar and the movie ('Pain and Glory') was going to win the Palm d'Or and it didn't happen. So, you have to be very careful with these things. And Pedro knows about that. He was the first one, who has been from day one saying 'I don't want to hear more about you're going to win this or that.' You know, we have what we have. And what we had is just a fantastic reception in our country by the critics, by the audience and also a beautiful, magic night at the Palais. That's what we had at the time. Then things came to be the way they are. I am very happy obviously, you know, but at the same time with a thought of bitterness because I would have loved for him to be here. These are natural things, human things you know."

Hausner: "Emily had a small list."

Beecham: "I had a small list."

Hausner: "I had it in my bag."

Beecham: "Which I didn't I didn't read the whole list in the end…"

12.Medium of Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne

13.SOUNDBITE (French) Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne, directors – on whether they expected to win:

Jean-Pierre Dardenne: "There's a trick that generally works for us, because we're an old couple and when we see on the stage someone bringing in two things, we says 'That's for us alright.' But this time that wasn't the case and we couldn't have known. So, we were really… We were talking to each other on the plane on the way over and we said, 'If we could have best director that'd be great.' And there we are."

Luc Dardenne: "We never won this prize in Cannes before, so we're going to leave it in the office open like this. The other two are too heavy to lug around and we keep them closed. This will force us to work." (they have two Palms d'Or)

BONG JOON HO, RUTH CARTER ATTEND AAFCA AWARDS

Oscar-winning costume designer Ruth Carter made history last year as the first African American to win the golden statue for her work in the Marvel blockbuster "Black Panther."

This year she's been recognized for her work in "Dolemite Is My Name," but not by the Academy.

While attending the 11th annual African American Film Critics Association Awards in Los Angeles on Wednesday (22JAN20), Carter explained why organizations like the AAFCA are important.

"Sometimes we don't get acknowledged and when we don't get acknowledged it takes our own to acknowledge us," she said.

South Korean filmmaker Bong Joon-ho ("Parasite"), and actors Garcelle Beauvais and Trevor Jackson were also in attendance.

"Oh my God, black media is everything and I think you have to have representatives of every culture in everything, right? So, I think the fact that now we are validated, and we are, we are here to stay. That we have to be here, so it's great.

'PARASITE' STARS GET SURPRISE WIN AT SAG AWARDS, AND MOMENTUM FOR THE OSCARS

“Parasite” has officially infected Hollywood's award season. Bong Joon-ho’s Korean class satire became the first foreign language film to take top honors from the Screen Actors Guild on Sunday, setting itself up as a legitimate best picture contender to the front-runner “1917” at next month’s Academy Awards.

  

The best ensemble win for “Parasite” came over the starry epics “Once Upon a Time ... in Hollywood” and “The Irishman.”

It was a surprise but only to a degree. “Parasite,” up for six Oscars including best picture, has emerged as perhaps the stiffest competition for Sam Mendes' “1917,” which won at the highly predictive Producers Guild Awards on Saturday.

  

But “Parasite” was the clear crowd favorite Sunday (19 JANUARY 2020) at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, where even the cast's appearance introducing the film drew a standing ovation. Yet until the SAG Awards, the many honors for “Parasite” have seldom included awards for its actors, none of whom were nominated for an Oscar.

  

In the press room, Lee Sun-kyun, one of the film's stars, joked through a translator,  "I'm a little embarrassed feeling like we're the parasites of Hollywood now," before adding, "I think, hopefully with this opportunity and with the success of 'Parasite', various industries, film industries across the world can co-exist and exist together."

Because actors make up the largest percentage of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, their picks are closely watched as an Academy Awards harbinger.

  

But the last two years, the SAG ensemble winner has not gone on to win best picture: “Black Panther” last year and “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” in 2018. And this year's front-runner, “1917,” more acclaimed for its technical achievement, wasn't nominated by the screen actors.

  

"It is true that the momentum is building and we are a part of the awards race and a campaign," said "Parasite" director Bong Joon-ho in the press room.

"But I think today what's truly important is that these actors were acknowledged by fellow peers, acknowledged as the best ensemble cast of this year. And that's the greatest joy of this night. In regards to the Oscars, who knows? No one can predict what will happen."

If “Parasite” can pull off the upset at the Feb. 9 Oscars, it would be the first foreign language film to do so.

"Ensembles are so important to films, but oftentimes we forget that, because we're so busy with our own performances. But thanks to this great opportunity and this award, we're able to, you know, rethink the value of ensemble and be acknowledged for our work. And teamwork is great."

"Last year was Korean cinema's, hundred year anniversary, and it was the year where we got a Palme d'Or and that was history that we made. But today we just made a new history that after 21 years, or 20 years after 'Life is Beautiful', we - foreign cast - got this big award. So I think as we speak right now, we are making new history. Thank you."

And you know, every society you have those groups constantly existing with one another. I think that's why the film has gained so much sympathy from people all over the world."

DIRECTORS BONG JOON HO, PEDRO ALMODOVAR, CELINE SCIAMMA AND LULU WANG DISCUSS THEIR GOLDEN GLOBE-NOMINATED FOREIGN LANGUAGE FILMS AND FEMALE DIRECTORS

Bong Joon-ho, whose 'Parasite' won best foreign-language film at the 2020 Golden Globes, said he never expected such a welcome reception to the movie.

"This story is a very contemporary one about the gap between rich and poor. And essentially, it's about capitalism. And I think it's undeniable that the heart of capitalism is the U.S. And so I think it's been very gratifying to see the strong reaction here," said the South Korean filmmaker. "But the success is all based on the explosive reaction we've gotten from the U.S. audience. And I think that's what makes me really happy."

Lulu Wang, who directed "The Farewell" in which the characters speak both Mandarin and English, said she grew professionally while working on her film.

"I think it was a learning experience for me because, you know, all my life it's been like if I want to make films, I have to compromise—that's not even a question. It's just a matter of how much do you I compromise. But every time I took the stand for something and I got it, it made me a little bit braver and I would fight a little bit harder," she said. "And so it was always just about every step, you know, trying to make the best decision I could in that particular moment. And I think it's all of these little moments that add up to the final film."

However, Wang also noted the disparity between male and female directors.

"It's hugely problematic. I think that the prejudice is something that people are not necessarily even aware of. They say that, you know, 'Well, these are just the best films. These are the best directors.' But I do think that directing is often sort of categorized as a technical craft and women are seen as emotional, which is, if you've ever been on a set, that's actually not true. Directing and art itself is an emotional craft and we need female voices," she said. "Oftentimes our actors are recognized but the craft itself of the film is not recognized. And so I think that's very problematic"

Spanish director Pedro Almodovar who helmed "Pain and Glory," seemed to agree.

"I used to always write about female protagonists. And they were always more important for me," he said. "So now, it seems that now are becoming more easy for the women director to work. But still, that is not a balance. That is not a priority. We need more women directing."

"This, for the first time ever, talks about something that is very close to my life and to my memories that give a different sense to the (inaudible). I mean, I did it like before. I mean, I was a director shooting a movie, but there I was more moved in sequences that they were talking about my mother, my former lovers—all that it. They moved also because the actors, they were so great, all of them, that it's always a spectacle just to watch them work. I think that I became director, yes, to see how the actors work."

"It shows how the diversity of French cinema and the fact that both of us are here and that, you know, it's—and that we embody French cinema tonight I think it's something quite beautiful. But it shouldn't be a symbol. It should become—it should happen more. And our industry has to be more inclusive. But it's a good start. Yeah."

I am just so flattered, so honored and ultimately so deepl
