SAG-AWARDS-618-618x400

Julia has been nominated for SAG Award for the second year in a row, she’s up as Best Actress in a TV Movie or Miniserie for her work in HBO’s “The Normal Heart”. Congrats to her!

Also Julia will be among the presenters at the 21st SAG Awards, executive producer Kathy Connell announced on Wednesday. The show will take place on Sunday, January 25 at the Shrine Auditorium, and will be broadcast live on TNT and TBS at 8 p.m. ET / 5 p.m. PT.



Julia is in negotiations to join the movie “Money Monster”, directed by Jodie Foster and another good thing is that George Clooney is starring! As ‘The Wrap’ says, the film is a financial thriller following the story of Lee Gates (Clooney), a bombastic television stock huckster, whose program (the titular “Money Monster”), and life, are taken hostage by an outraged gunman (to be played by Jack O’Connell).

Filming should begin in spring and I’m already so exited! I’ll post more news if anything else appears about it.

Julia will take the stage at next week’s Emmy Awards as a presenter. As you know, she’s nominated as Best Supporting Actress in a TV Movie/Miniseries for her role in “The Normal Heart”, so I hope she’ll be there up also as a winner!

There’s an article with a little poll in it on TV Line website:

The formidable ladies of American Horror Story: Coven cast a spell on the 2014 Emmy race for Best Supporting Actress in a Miniseries or Movie — snagging half the spots in the category. 

The question looms now, though, whether the anthology series’ trio of nominees — Frances Conroy, Kathy Bates and Angela Bassett — might split the vote and open the door to one of the other women in the race.

Last year’s champ, Political Animals‘ Ellen Burstyn, returns this time around for her role in Flowers in the Attic. Rounding out the field: Fargo‘s Allison Tolman and The Normal Heart‘s Julia Roberts. 

What would you do if you had the power to honor one of these fine talents when the Emmys are handed out on Aug. 25 ? Take our poll below to vote for your favorite, then hit the comments to justify your pick!

In InStyle’s September issue, editor Ariel Foxman sat down with Oscar-winning actress Julia Roberts for a chat at her favorite low-key Malibu cafe. Three hours later, Foxman emerged with notes on the 46-year-old’s family, style preferences, favorite films, and more. (Roberts even turned the tables on Foxman for her own line of questioning, which also appears in the issue.)

What follows is an excerpt of that conversation. To read the full interview (of both actress and editor) pick up the September issue of InStyle, available on newsstands and for digital download today.

Have you ever been starstruck?

Julia Roberts: Yes. I’m sure I’ve done other embarrassing things I’ve blocked out, but here’s the most starstruck moment I can remember: I was doing a press junket, and I was very sick, tired, and vulnerable—that has to be established. I’m doing interviews, and all of a sudden, in walks Gene Hackman. I did this: “Hi! Oh my God!” I hugged him and cried, “You’re so handsome!”

And what was his response?

He was very sweet, but he wanted to get away from me. It was so embarrassing.

How has Hollywood changed since you started out?

I say it to the point of sounding annoying and deceivingly old, but back in my day, showbiz was different. We didn’t have the Internet, and the types of scripts you got and the amount of scripts you got and what you got paid made sense. It also felt, for better or worse, entirely within my control.

That’s interesting. Can you elaborate?

Some years I’d make three movies, then I wouldn’t make a movie for two years. For some reason I [started feeling the pressure to] sustain momentum, and I knew that wasn’t for me. But it wasn’t like I was sitting down and putting much intellect into it. I chose every movie on instinct, and I was just fortunate that my instinct mostly lined up with the time I was occupying.

So if you had to create a definitive boxed set of your films for your kids, which ones would you include?

I’d have to say—in no order of favorite or year—Erin Brockovich, Closer, My Best Friend’s Wedding, August: Osage County, Ocean’s Eleven, and, I don’t know, Mystic Pizza or Pretty Woman. Oh! And Notting Hill! What am I thinking? Notting Hill is such a winner. [Later, Roberts emails one more: The Pelican Brief.] Read the rest of this entry »
