GOT DAMMMM SHAMEEEE ...'Get Out' Will Be Labeled A Comedy For Golden Globe Awards...WAS IT A COMEDY TO YOU GUYS...

Jordan Peele‘s successful feature film debut Get Out will be competing at the Golden Globe Awards as a comedy.... If Get Out actually receives a nomination then it will likely find star Daniel Kaluuya going up against possible Hugh Jackman (The Greatest Showman), Kumail Nanjiani (The Big Sick), James Franco (The Disaster Artist), Matt Damon (Downsizing), and Steve Carell (Battle of the Sexes), according to a report from Entertainment Weekly. The report also notes that although it does not seem likely that Get Out will receive in supporting nominations, it is possible that Peele could get a Globe nomination for directing if the horror-satire movie gains enough support from the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. Nominations for the 75th Golden Globe Awards will be announced Monday, December 11, with the awards telecast to follow on January 8 at 8:00 p.m. ET on NBC. Last month, Peele crashed a college course at UCLA based on Get Out. Titled, “Sunken Place: Racism, Survival, and Black Horror Aesthetic,” the course’s professor Tananarive Due surprised her students for the first day of class with an appearance from Peele himself. He had posed as a student throughout the class before Due brought him up to speak to the students about the film. “Today we snuck Jordan Peele into a back row while I was screening a scene from Get Out in my black horror class,” Due had recounted on Twitter. “Then he raised his hand.”

Gal Gadot will only be ‘Wonder Woman’ again if Brett Ratner is out.....

“Wonder Woman” star Gal Gadot is continuing to battle accused Hollywood sexual harasser Brett Ratner by refusing to sign for a super­hero sequel unless the movie-maker is completely killed from the franchise. Gadot — who last month backed out of a dinner honoring Ratner, where she was due to present him with an award — is taking a strong stance on sexual harassment in Hollywood and doesn’t want her hit “Wonder Woman” franchise to benefit a man accused of sexual misconduct. Ratner’s production company RatPac-Dune Entertainment helped produce “Wonder Woman” as part of its co-financing deal with Warner Bros. The movie has grossed more than $400 million internationally, and Ratner’s company will take a healthy share of the profits. A Warner Bros. insider explained, “Brett made a lot of money from the success of ‘Wonder Woman,’ thanks to his company having helped finance the first movie. Now Gadot is saying she won’t sign for the sequel unless Warner Bros. buys Brett out [of his financing deal] and gets rid of him.” The source added of Israeli-born Gadot, “She’s tough and stands by her principles. She also knows the best way to hit people like Brett Ratner is in the wallet. She also knows that Warner Bros. has to side with her on this issue as it develops. They can’t have a movie rooted in women’s empowerment being part-financed by a man ­accused of sexual misconduct against women.” Ellen Page accuses Brett Ratner of outing her Ellen Page accuses Brett Ratner of outing her This past week, Warner Bros. announced it was severing ties with Ratner amid multiple sexual-harassment allegations leveled against him by actresses including Olivia Munn and Natasha Henstridge. Ratner has vehemently denied the allegations through his attorney, Marty Singer. Earlier this month, Gadot posted on Instagram: “Bullying and sexual harassment is unacceptable! I stand by all the courageous women confronting their fears and speaking out. Together we stand. We are all united in this time of change.” Reps for Gadot and Ratner did not comment. A rep for Warner Bros said only, “False.”

Sylvester Stallone Announces He Will Direct Michael B. Jordan in ‘Creed 2’

Sylvester Stallone announced on Instagram that he will be directing “Creed 2.” “Looking forward to directing and Producing The incredibly talented Michael B Jordan in CREED 2 next year … One more Round!,” wrote Stallone..... Stallone has previously said he had completed writing the first draft of the script for “Creed 2” and hinted he is bringing back Dolph Lundgren’s Ivan Drago character (and presumedly his offspring) from “Rocky 4.” Last month Stallone also announced production would begin in 2018, although distributor MGM told Variety the project was still in development. In addition to writing and starring in the original “Rocky,” Stallone had directed four of the previous sequels, including “Rocky Balboa” — made 30 years after the original, when Stallone was 60 years old — which was assumed to bring closure to the successful franchise. Looking forward to directing and Producing The incredibly talented Michael B Jordan in CREED 2 next year ... One more Round ! #creed2 #mgm #fighting #workout #exercise #boxing A post shared by Sly Stallone (@officialslystallone) on Oct 9, 2017 at 5:59pm PDT Close to a decade later, writer/director Ryan Coogler — fresh of the success of his Sundance breakout “Fruitvale Station” — convinced Stallone to come back as Rocky. Ryan Coogler’s “Creed” was one of the smartest, most original franchise reboots to come out of Hollywood. Focusing on the estranged son (Jordan) of the late Apollo Creed (Carl Weathers) — Rocky’s greatest opponent turned best friend — Coogler reinvented the mentor-boxer relationship at the heart of the “Rocky” films, while telling an African American boxing story in a franchise that was rooted in the lore of “The Great White Hope.” In addition to being a box office success, “Creed” also gave Stallone an incredible acting opportunity, as he went into the 2015 Academy Awards the favorite to win the Best Support Actor award, which went to Mark Rylance (“Bridge of Spies”). For his part, Coogler has become one of the busiest and most sought after directors in Hollywood since the success of “Creed.” While the buzz on his summer Marvel film “Black Panther” is off the charts, he is also preparing “Wrong Answer,” which will star Jordan and is based on script written by nonfiction author Ta-Nehisi Coates.

If...

The message read, “i just received a phone call that frank vincent has passed away… ill let all know about the services…we lost a great character actor and great man ..may he always stay in our memory.” Pastore also posted a message on Facebook; “rest in peace dear frank,” and reflected on how Frank “became an inspiration” to his “Sopranos” co-star after landing a role on “Raging Bull.”  Pastore says Vincent was his mentor and inspiration. Vincent was a career “mobster,” and had roles in other classics like, “Goodfellas” and “Casino.”  He’s also had some of the best “whacking” scenes in the mob genre. His “Sopranos” role was especially praised playing nemesis to James Gandolfini’s, Tony, and eventually rose to the boss of the Lupertazzi crime family. We’re told Vincent had been sick, but specific details of his death are currently unclear.
