This week: How does a red carpet look come together? Why it’s not as easy as saying “fire the stylist”. Celebrity style is an entire ecosystem unto itself. Lena Waithe covers Vanity Fair – and what this means not just for her but for the magazine. We also discuss celebrities and politics and then the work that goes into pilot season and who casting directors are now looking for. Finally… the connection between Broadway and the March For Our Lives.
This week: Emma Stone’s first campaign for Louis Vuitton and the work of fashion partnerships in Hollywood. How the Queen was underpaid on The Crown and what Judd Apatow had to say about it. And the tricky task of getting better at diversity in casting, character development, RISE and Love Simon. PS. If you hear some popping throughout the podcast, it’s not just your ears. Apologies and it will be cleared up next week.
On this episode: it’s been a week since Frances McDormand namechecked the Inclusion Rider at the Oscars. How does it work? How will its supporters sustain the momentum for it, especially since it already has its detractors? Next the work of Ava DuVernay. And the work she was doing that’s shaping the work she’s doing now. Also… our work at the Oscars – we discuss the process behind our Oscar coverage, from the writing to the assigning to, yes, even the bathroom breaks.
