Ellen Pompeo is now the highest paid woman on a primetime drama. And her interview in The Hollywood Reporter is not just everything we do here at Show Your Work, it’s a meditation on the entire Hollywood ecosystem. This is why we are dedicating this entire episode to what she did, what she says, how she learned, and how she works. She’s now the patron saint of this podcast – even though she doesn’t know it.
On this episode: we discuss the 1.5 million dollar pay disparity between Michelle Williams and Mark Wahlberg, Lainey and I fight back and forth about who gets to read the best lines from the recent Variety piece on Tyra Banks, we examine the questions asked of Jodi Kantor and other journalists who have been deep in the heart of the #metoo movement, and finally I explain why my current motto is “I didn’t see it, I read it”.
On the first episode of 2018, we break down the most competitive category at the Golden Globes and celebrate the time of Laura Dern... Vice Admiral Holdo to you. The Hollywood Foreign Press Association is probably best at recognising new comedy – and this year is no exception with the nomination of The Marvelous Mrs Maisel. Why are the critics so big on this show? Should you be? Who is the Brangelina of Generation Z and how will the secret lives of teenagers affect gossip and the creative class as we know it? And finally…how will Blue Ivy Carter affect our entire future?

Plus, Saoirse Ronan's chances at becoming a bona fide 'star',the backlash aimed at one Best Supporting Actress Nominee, and a holiday fairy tale about work in our last episode before the holiday break.
