Gary Oldman has been the Oscar favorite for Best Actor for the entire awards season for his portrayal of Winston Churchill in “Darkest Hour.” Indeed, he’s spent longer in the number one position than Ed Sheeran did when his new album came out. And Oldman is still there. A few weeks back, however, this British veteran actor faced some strong competition from Timothee Chalamet, the breakout star of “Call Me By your Name,” who started picking up a slew of critics awards. These scribes were enamored of his natural, emotional performance as Elio. Can Chalamet ride that momentum to...

She apparently barely attended any of the annual family Christmas events, and she was being looked after ‘round the clock. Remember that? It led to a lot of speculation that 2016 might be her last Christmas, and then there were all of those macabre articles about what will actually happen in the minutes,...

Julia Louis-Dreyfus’s costars say she’s in good spirits and has her sense of humor

Julia Louis-Dreyfus has just finished chemotherapy for breast cancer that was diagnosed back in September. Sunday, her show VEEP was nominated and won Female Actor in a Comedy Series (Julia) and Ensemble in a Comedy Series (VEEP). Almost the entire cast was there to celebrate the victory. Notably absent was Anna Chlumsky, who is in New York appearing in the play Cardinal with Adam Pally and, of course, Julia who is still recovering. She was missed, of course, but the VEEP team let everyone know she was in great spirits and doing really well. Although Julia-Louis Dreyfus watched the 2018 Screen...
