I couldn’t resist posting a picture from the red carpet! What a show. I’ve been telling you how much I love Eddie Redmayne! So happy to see him walk away with the award.
Kevin Costner plays a real-life coach who doesn’t cut teenage migrant workers any slack as he transforms them into a winning high school cross country team. Kevin told me why he used some of that tough love on the cast during filming.
BBC-TV called me and said, “Jeanne, tell us about the Brits at The Oscars Nominees Luncheon.” Of course, I started with Eddie Redmayne. (Benedict Cumberbatch was working in London so, for once, I didn’t have to choose between the two.) Eddie’s charm offensive continued. He told how gleeful he was to have to have his luggage opened so he could coyly show off his Screen Actors Guild Best Actor trophy. The TSA agent said, “Is this statue some sort of award?” Eddie grinned yes. One can only imagine that he’ll march through the airport with his golden guy held aloft if he – as many predict – wins the Best Actor Academy Award. And, oh yes, Rosamund Pike and Felicity Jones were also glam and charming.
Anne Hathaway may be a Hollywood winner but she could still identify with a woman trying to find love and fulfillment. In her new movie Song One, co-produced by her husband, she reveals why.
