Ellen DeGeneres pays tribute to her father who has died at 92: “I was able to say goodbye”

This week, at the age of 92, my father, Elliott DeGeneres, passed away. He lived a good long life. It wasn’t unexpected. I was able to say goodbye.

A post shared by Ellen (@theellenshow) on


When I was a kid, my dad took us on one vacation to Warner Bros. Studios. He loved this business. He loved that I was in it. When he died, I saw this rainbow over the stage they named for me.

GALECA Awards: ‘Call Me By Your Name’ gets nine nods; French film ‘BPM: Beats Per Minute’ gets five

GALECA: The Society of LGBTQ Entertainment Critics (GALECA.org) is comprised of nearly 200 critics and journalists in the U.S., Canada and U.K. and I am proud to be a member. On Wednesday we released our ninth annual Dorian Award nominations for the year’s finest in film and TV.

Call Me By Your Name reigns with nine nominations, starting with Film of the Year. Earning both best actor and rising star nods: Timothée Chalamet, who plays the film’s teen protagonist besotted by 20something Armie Hammer — who received a nomination for supporting actor.

I’m thrilled that the brilliant BPM (Beats Per Minute), French director Robin Campillo’s dramatic account of friends facing the AIDS epidemic in 1990s France, scored an impressive five nominations, from Foreign Language Film of the Year to Unsung Film. Shockingly, the film did not make the shortlist of Oscar contenders.

Late Night Video: Timothée Chalamet is utterly charming and funny during visit to ‘The Tonight Show’

Call Me By Your Name star Timothée Chalamet, who also has a role in Lady Bird, is just delicious in both films. He’s also just tremendously entertaining and charming as himself as you can see in this appearance on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon. He dishes on chatting with Angelina Jolie and Jennifer Aniston at the Golden Globes, an embarrassing wipeout at a Q&A and how he ended up in bed with his Call Me by Your Name co-star Armie Hammer and his wife.

In new Hollywood Reporter cover story, Ronan Farrow talks Weinstein, Woody and a man he’s been linked to romantically

Ronan Farrow is the subject of a cover story in the new issue of The Hollywood Reporter.

The New Yorker contributing writer with famous parents (Mia Farrow and Woody Allen) is a hot commodity since his extensive magazine piece that had a huge role in bringing down Harvey Weinstein. He also did a powerful follow-up piece revealing the extent to which Weinstein went get his victims to remain silent.

The piece does not detail Farrow’s personal life but it does mention Jon Lovett, the former Obama speechwriter and comedic co-host of the popular political podcast Pod Save America whom the article states “he’s been linked romantically, though he won’t comment except to say they have ‘been close in recent years.’”

Asked when he last spoke to his father, Ronan offers a long silence. “I don’t actually know the answer to that,” he finally says. “We have had contact over the years, but he is not someone that I keep up with regularly.”

Some interesting tidbits: His mother started driving him nearly an hour each way to take classes at Bard College when he was 11. In his final years of school, he lived in the home of a professor near campus. By 16, he had earned his degree and became an intern for Richard Holbrooke on the presidential campaign of John Kerry. Farrow was too young to have an apartment of his own, so he stayed with Diane Sawyer and Mike Nichols on “a couch in Mike’s office,” he says.

Farrow entered Yale Law School at the age of 18.

Check out this very thoughtful interview with talented Neil Patrick Harris – in black & white


Here are some clips of Neil Patrick Harris’ appearance on Off Camera with Sam Jones, a show that features conversations with the most iconic, curious, interesting artists of our time. I like this show because Jones delves deep into the process and craft of actors, musicians, directors, writers, and athletes in authentic, intimate conversations. They go far deeper than any other talk show on television and stay away from plugging things and silly banter. I dig it!

Wednesday Morning Man: Romain Duris!

I took in All the Money in the World a few weeks ago and was very impressed with the performance of French actor Romain Duris.

The 43-year-old actor Duris is best known for his role as the French exchange student Xavier Rousseau in L’Auberge Espagnole and The Russian Dolls. He played a thug in The Beat That My Heart Skipped and has played a variety of roles ranging from gangsters as in Dobermann through romantic leads, Heartbreaker to action heroes in Arsène Lupin.

Before going into acting, he started an acid-jazz band where he was a drummer. He was noticed in the street by a casting director whilst waiting in a line in 1993 and was offered a part in the 1994 Cédric Klapisch film Le péril jeune.

Check out the U.S. national bobsled team!

Instantly I’ve become a tremendous fan of U.S. bobsledding.

In fact, I vow to not miss a single race during the upcoming Winter Olympics.

Why?

Because this is a photo of the current United States national team from which the Olympic competitors will be selected. I don’t know any of their names yet but they sure are quite a sight!

British cycling champ Zack Leader comes out publicly as gay: ‘I’ve always worried this would hinder me from getting sponsors’

So 2018 is finally here and for about 6 months now, this is how I wanted to start the new year. A fresh start. No more hiding, no more lies, no more fannying around! To some of you this won’t be news or anything new but to a lot of you, I imagine it won’t have even crossed your mind. Some of you may have thought about it I imagine What I’m trying to do is come out and say I’m gay I’ve spent a lot more time in paddocks in recent seasons but this issue has never come up, I’ve never known if the paddocks would accept a gay rider. I guess I’ll find out soon! I’ve always worried that people would look at me differently and so wouldn’t accept me into paddocks. I’ve always worried this would hinder me from getting sponsors and maybe even signed by teams in the future; that team managers wouldn’t want the hassle and so wouldn’t bother, regardless of how good I may be. Obviously I’ll find all this out in good time but I really hope everyone both in general life and racing life accepts me for who I am. This is a purely personal decision to come out but maybe if there are other LGBT racers in British paddocks then it may help them to find themselves and consider coming out too, or find the confidence to talk about it. I’m always happy to talk to anybody about it Maybe one day we may see more racers happy and confident to come out as a member of the LGBT community! I’m telling you all now though, I’m a man on a mission. I’m going to be the first openly gay BGBC champion and then one day I’m going to Britain’s one of Britain’s first openly gay national motorcycle champions and the ultimate goal is to be THE FIRST EVER OPENLY GAY BRITISH SUPERBIKE CHAMPION. And mark my words, I’ll get there if it’s the last thing I do! I’m going to be an ambassador in racing for the LGBT community too which I’m going to be incredibly proud to do Feel free to message about anything guys but I hope you all accept me and continue to show me the love! I don’t currently have that special guy in my life to share everything with and to share my journey to glory with at the moment but I’m working on it Happy new year everyone! #gay #gayteen #lgbt #gayracer #comingout
