Is Focus Features Giving Schenectady the Shaft?

There’s a really ugly Hollywood PR storm brewing in Schenectady, New York. One that Focus Features would do well to quell asap.

Per an article by Paul Grondahl in Albany’s Times-Union newspaper, city officials, locals and at least one area native prominently associated with The Place Beyond the Pines are all mystified by the apparent lack of any plans for a promised spring premiere at Proctors. The Ryan Gosling-Bradley Cooper drama was filmed all over Schenectady in the summer of 2011; the building on the poster crop at right for example is a Trustco bank branch at the corner of State Street and Brandywine Avenue. From Grondahl’s report:

“I’m annoyed with these guys,” said Philip Morris, CEO of Proctors. He said the producers and distributor are not returning his calls, even though his staff assisted the production…

Zach Galifianakis Taps Another Deadpan Silver Lining

In the first episode of Zach Galifianakis‘ “Oscar Buzz” edition of Between Two Ferns, it was Jennifer Lawrence who stole the show. She zinged the host with a great Hunger Games gag and to his “that’s off-putting” retort, suggested that he in fact is the one who should be “off pudding.”

Now it’s the turn of her Silver Linings Playbook co-star Bradley Cooper. He’s the final guest for Galifianakis’ second set of 2012 Oscar nominee sit-downs, foolishly agreeing to read an acceptance speech drafted by the talk show host.

Which is the Bigger Oscar Snub: Ben Affleck or Kathryn Bigelow?

Seth MacFarlane‘s Hitler joke during this morning’s announcement of the 2012 Oscar nominations rippled awkwardly through the AMPAS room. (And brought back memories for FishbowlLA of Ricky Gervais‘ aborted plans to come out for one Golden Globes telecast dressed as the Führer, waving at the crowd “Heil!” style.)

But that was nothing compared to what happened when the nominees for Best Director were announced. The tweets quickly started flying as west coast entertainment journalists rustled up at the break of dawn reeled in the face of the omission of Ben Affleck (Argo) and Kathryn Bigelow (Zero Dark Thirty). Tom Hooper was also passed over in the category for Les Miserables, but that was something a number of pundits had actually been expecting.

The first wave of shocked analysis is floating all kinds of theories as to why Bigelow and Affleck were snubbed. Did accusations of Zero Dark Thirty being “pro-torture” hurt Bigelow? Was all that fawning over Affleck this awards season too much for jealous Academy members to bear?

Harvey Weinstein Fashions Faux Mitt Romney Trailer

This afternoon, Harvey Weinstein has shared on The Huffington Post the kind of entry that brings back memories of the website’s earliest beginnings. Before the AOL acquisition, before the New York conference room SEO nanosecond expertise, before the third-party content mirroring, it was just Arianna Huffington’s celebrity friends posting their random observations.

Folks like Weinstein, who follows up last night’s lively appearance on Piers Morgan Tonight with a faux trailer for the Mitt Romney drama Hindsight. This Democratic ditty was put together with the help of John Stockwell, Meghan O’Hara and Weinstein’s Silver Linings Playbook star Bradley Cooper.

For good measure, there’s also some soundtrack assistance from Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend. Enjoy or – as several already have in the HuffPo comments – dismiss.

James Lipton: From Struggling New York Actor to Master Interviewer

Isn’t it nice to know that even someone like James Lipton struggled to pay his bills while living in our fair city? Makes you feel good about spending a small salary to live in your own tiny apartment, no?

In mediabistro.com’s latest So What Do You  Do? interview, the host of Inside the Actor’s Studio talked about why he ditched law school for acting and studying under greats like Stella Adler and Harold Clurman of New York’s legendary Group Theatre.

“When I moved out to New York, I was going to go to continue my education in the law. That was always the intention; I was going to be a lawyer. But I had to work as well, you see, and so I looked around me and I saw that the [acting] track was pretty fast. And I thought that if I was going to work in New York as an actor I should study some of that at least. Otherwise, I’d be unemployed and I’d starve to death and terrible things would happen.”

Of course, we all know now that that didn’t happen.  Find out which ensemble cast will kick off Inside‘s 18th season and the legendary actor who refused to appear on the show in So What Do You  Do, James Lipton?

Ryan Gosling is TIME‘s ‘Coolest Person of the Year’

In the shadow of TIME magazine’s anointment of the generic protester as 2011′s “Person of the Year,”columnist Joel Stein has engineered his very own personal side-honor category.

After careful consideration, Stein decided that the combined impact of four very different movies and bravura personal behavior outweighed such troublesome downsides as Canadian origins, a Mouseketeer connection and some homeschooling. As a result, Ryan Gosling is his choice for “Coolest Person of the Year:”

We have no idea how Gosling will deal with this honor. A tattoo seems like the obvious way to go, though a commemorative diorama would probably be good enough for a spot on Access Hollywood. But that’s not why we pick a Coolest Person of the Year. We do it for the journalism.

The Hangover III Might Be Set in Los Angeles

Are you ready for The Hangover III?

Actor Bradley Cooper told the BBC’s Graham Norton Show that their could be a third film on the way — which would take place in Los Angeles.

“I think that we adhered to the formula in the second one, for those who’ve seen it, and the third one, I think, which would close the whole trilogy,” said Cooper. “I think it’ll take place in Los Angeles and maybe not adhere to the structure. It might be different.”

Bradley Cooper is People’s ‘Sexiest Man Alive’

Because your FishbowlNY editors graciously took themselves out of the running this year, People has selected Bradley Cooper as the “Sexiest Man Alive.” Other celebrities that came close to receiving the honor included Ryan Gosling, Idris Elba, George Clooney and Chris Evans.

The 36-year-old Cooper had a humble reaction to the news. “I think it’s really cool that a guy who doesn’t look like a model can have this [title],” Cooper told People. “I think I’m a decent-looking guy. Sometimes I can look great, and other times I look horrifying.”

We’re kind of surprised that Gosling didn’t win, but Cooper is a good choice. We once passed by him in Union Square, and while we wanted to say something snarky about him or his movies, his hair was so fantastic we simply could not do it.

The issue featuring Cooper hits newsstands Friday.

People Marks 25 Years Of “Sexiest Man Alive” By Raking In Money For Charity

What’s that old saying, “sex sells”?  In the past month People magazine provided some strong evidence to back that credo by raising over $218,000 for charity through their “Sexiest Man Alive” auctions.  People partnered up with online charity auction leader charitybuzz, to offer readers a chance to bid on once-in-a-lifetime experiences with the sexiest men featured in their pages over the past 25 years.  The bidding ran from Nov. 17 through Dec. 15 and all proceeds benefited the celebrity’s preferred charity.

The highest bid of all the “Sexiest Man Alive” auctions was for the chance to meet Prince William at the Chakravarty Cup Polo Match.  Other experiences included a swimming lesson with Michael Phelps and a tickets to a Bon Jovi concert along with a meet-and-greet.  Some other celebrities that participated include Hugh Jackman, Bradley Cooper, and Ricky Martin.
