oscar memories on ice: here’s to the little traditions

For more than 20 years, Lynne Segall, the Hollywood Reporter’s executive vp, publisher and spirit animal, has kept up a peculiar Academy Awards tradition. At the Governors Ball, she slips one of Wolfgang Puck’s custom chocolate mini-Oscars into her purse and, when she arrives home, tosses it into her freezer. No, she’s not a hoarder, but her icebox is beginning to fill up (see above). “I started collecting them as souvenirs of great Oscar moments for me,” she told me recently. THR’s annual Oscar preview issue serves a similar — albeit less ice-encrusted — purpose. Perusing nearly 90 years of issues feels like stepping into a Hollywood time machine. Sidney Poitier winning best actor for Lilies of the Field in 1964; Tom Hanks thanking his gay high school teacher when he…

Lesley Balla writes about Musso & Frank, the iconic Hollywood restaurant that turns 100 this year (page 120). “Everyone who’s anyone has dined here,” she says of devotees like Quentin Tarantino and Charlie Chaplin. “The martinis, steaks and flannel cakes are all just the tip of the glittery iceberg,” adds Balla, who has covered L.A. dining for nearly 20 years. New Zealand-based cover illustrator Nigel Buchanan envisions Oscar as a political activist. “I wanted to evoke some revolutionary posters of the early 1900s,” Buchanan says. “With the Oscar statuette being from a similar time and aesthetic, and the number of important causes currently being supported and promoted, the revolutionary pose and flag seemed appropriate.” Free Solo codirector Jimmy Chin photographs the subject of his nominated doc, Alex Honnold, who offered Jared Leto…

can amazon deliver hit movies? salke says yes

It was the request for a 2 a.m. meeting that tipped Jennifer Salke to the fact that she was operating in a new realm. When Salke was named head of Amazon Studios in February 2018, the former NBC Entertainment president brought relationships and knowledge from the broadcast TV world, but she was new to the film industry and its cultural quirks, including the phenomenon of allnight festival bidding wars. At this year’s Sundance Film Festival, Salke got a quick education and made a bold statement, spending $47 million on five movies, the most any company has spent in Park City in a single year. “I thought it was crazy,” Salke says of walking into her first Sundance negotiation, for the Mindy Kaling-Emma Thompson comedy Late Night, which she ultimately acquired for $13…

china finally figures out sci-fi in otherworldly blockbuster

Before the release of The Wandering Earth, China’s first big-budget sci-fi spectacular, many in the Beijing film industry believed the movie would either rocket to historic success or crash disastrously. China’s fickle filmgoers would be arriving at the cinema well versed in high-end Hollywood sci-fi thanks to the past local success of projects like Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar ($122 million) and Ridley Scott’s The Martian ($95 million). But since opening Feb. 5, the first day of China’s Lunar New Year holiday, The Wandering Earth has earned $472.6 million, on pace to become the second-highest-grossing film at China’s box office. Some analysts believe it might even surpass 2017’s Wolf Warrior 2 ($854 million) to become China’s biggest blockbuster ever. Produced by powerhouse studio Beijing Culture and the state-owned China Film Group Corp., the film…

who will work with john lasseter? not emma thompson

John Lasseter has begun to put his stamp on Skydance Animation amid signs he may face resistance as he attempts to turn David Ellison’s animation unit into a major player. On Feb. 14, Holly Edwards, who had been serving as head of production, was promoted to president, effectively becoming Lasseter’s right hand as former president Bill Damaschke exits. Not everyone’s ready to work at Skydance, though. Emma Thompson, who had begun recording one of the voice roles in its upcoming animated feature Luck, has quietly left the project because of concerns about working with Lasseter, several sources tell THR. Her departure is the first evidence that Skydance may have difficulty attracting talent given its new notoriety. Skydance and Thompson’s reps had no comment. Lasseter, 62, tended to surround himself with an all-male…
