Why Can’t Hollywood Women Age Publicly?

By | Thursday December 6, 2012 @ 6:54am PST

It’s an epidemic. Look at these ridiculous recent examples of photoshopping. At a time when more actresses are allowing themselves to be photographed without makeup, Hollywood ageism is still alive and well and fueled by movie posters and celeb magazines:

First, here’s Barbra Streisand on her new movie The Guilt Trip‘s one-sheet for Skydance/Paramount opening December 19th. Of course she had complete approval so this phony baloney is her fault. (Well, the pic is supposed to be a comedy.) Then again it’s humiliating to have pundits like Deadline’s own Pete Hammond write Streisand’s Gypsy: Too Old — Or Going For The Gold?:

Then here’s an unrecognizable Gwyneth Paltrow from InStyle UK’s January 2013 cover. Could they have done this without her say-so?

Meanwhile, Mildred Pierce landed 3 Emmys, as much as The Kennedys and just one more than Downton Abbey. (All three are nominated for best TV movie or miniseries.) This could be a sign that the race in the top longform category, already made more competitive by merging TV movies and minis this year, may get even tighter.

Boardwalk Empire was not the only rookie to make a solid entrance into the Emmy circle. Fledgeling cable channel ReelzChannel, which this year is taking over from E! as the broadcaster of the Creative Emmys, landed its first 3 Emmy Awards tonight for its first original program, … Read More »

(Correction: SNL was nominated for 2 songs: Andy Samberg’s not winner.)

Seth Meyers accepts for SNL saying: “Justin Timberlake wanted to be here. But we said, no, they really want to see the writers.” Backstage, Meyers said that Justin Timberlake provided the idea of singing a song about not wanting to sing, and that gave the writers something to run with. Asked where he plans to keep his Emmy, Meyers said: “I’m just going to put it somewhere where Andy Samberg can see it.”
