Sorkin Presents NEWSROOM at Los Angeles Film Festival

user
Halfway through the first scene (he writes long scenes) of Sorkin's NEWSROOM I thought, "This show could change the world." I am a Sorkin fan, and an idealist, but that's besides the point. In the same way that THE WEST WING made Americans feel apart of what was happening in Washington, NEWSROOM does too. It takes place in a newsroom in Washington, and not only that but it's set during the real events of the day beginning on April 20, 2010. I feel like this kind of pseudo-inside look...

Golden Globe Round Up 2011

user
In 2009 The Golden Globe ceremony didn't have a host. The actors/actresses just came out to present and announce the winner. I don't remember what they did for an opening, but a joke monologue isn't the only way to open the show with energy. I don't want to be a Pollyanna or someone who only accepts niceties and tact, but I felt some of host Ricky Gervais', blunt, roast type humor may have been unnecessary. Do I feel this way because we're talking about Hollywood Royalty, like J...

The injunctions are rather hard to explain but disqualify film scrip...
