Nicholson, Dern Compare Cannes Ovations

Shutterstock_BruceDernIf Bruce Dern wins an Oscar next March, he might have to include in his acceptance speech a callback to this great exchange. As in, ‘Not bad for a kid from Winnetka…’

The details come to us courtesy Vulture contributor Mary Kaye Schilling. For Nebraska, she spoke to the actor recently in Pasadena:

After Nebraska screened at the [2013 Cannes Film] festival, “We had an enormous ovation for three minutes,” says Dern. As he was preparing to leave the theater, he noticed his face up on the screen. “And then the people started really clapping,” he says. “[Director] Alexander [Payne] said to me, ‘Where are you going? The other ovation was for all of us, but make no mistake, this one is for you.’

Mary Kaye Schilling Leaves New York for GQ

Mary Kaye Schilling is leaving New York magazine to become a Senior Articles Editor, replacing the spot vacated by Dan Fierman, who left GQ for Grantland, the new site backed by Bill Simmons. According to WWD, Schilling said that she was ready for a change:

Doing a weekly section for three years and having to produce anywhere from 13 to 16 pages a week plus doing features and working on packages, it’s pretty relentless. Also, there wasn’t really any place to move as an editor, to do, say, just a feature well because there are really good editors now who have been there for a long time and don’t have any intention of leaving.

Since she’s headed to GQ, WWD asked her about that now infamous cover story by Edith Zimmerman. You know, that one we kind of hated. Turns out, Schilling agrees with us:

Knowing where Edith is in her career, I thought it was quite amazing. But I thought it was too much Edith and not enough Chris.

Mary Kaye Schilling Moves to New York Magazine

MK_Schilling2.jpgFormer LAT Calendar editor Mary Kaye Schilling has been named culture editor at New York. Hmm. Can’t imagine why anyone would want to leave the LAT in this happy hour.

Schilling launched the Guide when she joined the LAT, after 14 years at Entertainment Weekly.

Congratulations, Mary!

LA Times Adds Mary Kaye Schilling to Calendar Weekend–Was Editor at Sassy

John Montorio announced to the ranks of the LA Times that Mary Kaye Schilling, one-time former editor of Entertainment Weekly, is coming in as editor of Calendar Weekend in February.

She’s a former editor of Sassy, which makes her an automatically cool chick. Seriously, does the upper management realize how significant that magazine was?

The LA Times had been searching for a while, as the paper plans to relaunch Weekend, along with its companion website, calendarlive.com, often considered to be dismal.

Schilling will be coming to from Australia, where she is currently a top editor at Who magazine for Time Warner. Thus, we can infer, she loves photos of celebrities looking goofy and/or drunk. We hope so, anyway.
