DOLLY PARTON & JANE FONDA TO GIVE LILY TOMLIN SAG

Dolly Parton




Jane Fonda and Dolly Parton will present the SAG Life Achievement Award to actor, comedian, writer, producer and all-round entertainment maverick Lily Tomlin during the 23rd Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards®, Executive Producer Kathy Connell announced today. Tomlin's accepting SAG-AFTRA’s highest accolade from her two long-time friends, a trio beloved as the co-conspirators in the 1980 feminist revenge comedy hit 9 to 5, will be a highlight of the annual SAG Awards® ceremony, which will be simulcast live on TNT and TBS on Sunday, Jan. 29, 2017 at 8 p.m. (ET), 5 p.m. (PT).


Lily Tomlin


A Friendship Forged in Film



9 to 5 is now number 74 on American Film Institute's list of "100 Funniest American Movies of All Time." When the film was shot, Fonda and Tomlin were friends who had already received numerous honors for their acting achievements. It was Parton’s first feature film role, but she was a veteran of live and television performances as herself, an award-winning musician and writer. She also wrote, performed and received dozens of awards for the movie’s title song.

The three legendary artists, each of whom has a star on Hollywood’s Walk of Fame, have remained close friends since that catalyst film. Fonda and Tomlin joined forces again as stars and executive producers of the current Netflix series Grace and Frankie. The success of the show led to both being honored this year with Actor® nominations for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Comedy Series, along with Emmy® and Golden Globe® nominations for Tomlin. Grace and Frankie returns for its third season in May 2017




Jane Fonda



A two-time Best Actress Academy Award® winner (for Klute and Coming Home) and five-time nominee (for The Morning After, On Golden Pond, The China Syndrome, Julia and They Shoot Horses Don't They), Fonda was the 2014 recipient of the AFI Life Achievement Award. Fonda was first honored with a SAG Award nomination in 2014 as a member of the motion picture cast of Lee Daniels' The Butler, in which she portrayed Nancy Reagan.

For three seasons, Fonda appeared as media mogul Leona Lansing in an Emmy-nominated performance in Aaron Sorkin’s The Newsroom, on HBO. More recently, she received a Golden Globe nomination for her stunning performance in Youth, written and directed by Paolo Sorrentino. Fonda is also known for revolutionizing the fitness industry with videos, books and audio recordings; her 1982 Jane Fonda’s Workout remains the top-grossing home video of all time.

Dolly Parton



Dolly Parton’s multitude of accolades include a Kennedy Center Honor, eight Country Music Association Awards (including Female Vocalist of the Year and Entertainer of the Year), seven Grammy Awards, two Oscar nominations, three Golden Globe nominations, and being inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame. Several of her awards honor the title song she wrote and recorded for the 9 to 5 soundtrack. Parton followed that hit film with starring roles in The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas (1982); Rhinestone (1984); Steel Magnolias (1989); and Straight Talk (1992). Most recently she starred in and executive produced Dolly Parton's Christmas of Many Colors: Circle of Love (2016) for NBC. Parton also released Pure & Simple, her seventh album to debut at No. 1, and The Complete Trio Collection, capping the popular series she shares with Linda Ronstadt and Emmylou Harris.

Parton has the distinction of writing the only song to have topped the charts three times: "I Will Always Love You." She has taken more than 20 songs to No. 1, has written two successful books plus a cookbook, and has also launched and runs the non-profit Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library, which provides children in participating communities in 44 states with a book each month from birth until age five.

Lily Tomlin, 2016 SAG Life Achievement Award Recipient



Lily Tomlin – whose talents put her at the pinnacle of comedy, acting, writing and producing – has been named the 53rd recipient of SAG-AFTRA's highest tribute: the Life Achievement Award for career achievement and humanitarian accomplishment. The SAG Life Achievement Award is the latest in Tomlin's extraordinary collection of preeminent industry and public honors, which includes a 2014 Kennedy Center Award, the 2003 Mark Twain Prize for American Humor, two Peabody Awards, multiple Emmys® (including this year's Lead Comedy Actress nomination), numerous American Comedy Awards, two Tony® Awards, a Grammy®, a Writers Guild of America Award, this year’s SAG Awards nomination, and both the Crystal Award and the Lucy Award from Women in Film. That Tomlin embodies the SAG Life Achievement Award’s "finest ideals of the acting profession" is amply celebrated by these and her numerous other professional and philanthropic commendations.

Tomlin has been a cherished star in the entertainment firmament since she joined the groundbreaking television series Rowan and Martin's Laugh-In in 1969, when it was rated the No. 1 show and watched by over 25 percent of all American television viewers. She and the colony of characters she created have continued to evolve, grow, deepen and adapt to this day, as Tomlin expresses her talents in nearly all forms of media.

Tomlin can currently be seen starring opposite fellow executive producer Jane Fonda in Grace and Frankie, in which two mismatched women become friends as they reinvent themselves after their husbands decide to marry each other.

JANE FONDA & LILY TOMLIN PERFECT IN GRACE & FRANKIE

****
THE GLORIOUS CORNER

Story By: G. H. HARDING
****
Jane Fonda




SQUIRE PASSES --- We’ve lost so many music greats this year, but over the weekend we lost a true, true music giant; bassist-extraordinaire Chris Squrie, co- founder of Yes, at 67 from a rare form of leukemia.



Current Yes keyboardist Geoff Downes first tweeted the news, "Utterly devastated beyond words to have to report the sad news of the passing of my dear friend, bandmate and inspiration Chris Squire."



Yes confirmed Squire's death on their official Facebook page. "It's with the heaviest of hearts and unbearable sadness that we must inform you of the passing of our dear friend and Yes co-founder, Chris Squire. Chris peacefully passed away last night in Phoenix Arizona, in the arms of his loving wife Scotty,” wrote the band.



"For the entirety of Yes' existence, Chris was the band's linchpin and, in so many ways, the glue that held it together over all these years. Because of his phenomenal bass-playing prowess, Chris influenced countless bassists around the world, including many of today’s well-known artists. Chris was also a fantastic songwriter, having written and co-written much of Yes' most endearing music, as well as his solo album, Fish Out of Water."



Yes formed in 1968 after singer Jon Anderson met self-taught bassist Squire at a London music-industry bar; the pair was soon joined by guitarist Peter Banks, keyboardist Tony Kaye, and drummer Bill Bruford. Yes released their self-titled debut in 1969. However, it wasn’t until Steve Howe and Rick Wakeman replaced Banks and Kaye, respectively, that the prog rock group really hit it big with 1971's The Yes Album and Fragile.



Over the ensuing decades, Yes would see a parade of band members depart, enter and reenter, but Squire was the lone constant in the shape-shifting band, serving as their bassist for nearly 50 years. He is also credited as a co-writer on many of Yes' greatest cuts, including "I've Seen All Good People," "Starship Trooper," "Owner of a Lonely Heart," "Yours Is No Disgrace" and "Heart of the Sunrise."



In addition to his work with Yes, Squire was involved in other side and solo projects. His 1975 solo LP Fish Out of Water is revered among prog fans.



In May, Squire revealed that he was recently diagnosed with acute erythroid leukemia, which would force him to miss the band's summer co-headlining tour with Toto. The absence marked the first time in the band's history that Yes performed without their longtime bassist.



"This will be the first time since the band formed in 1968 that Yes will have performed live without me," Squire said in a statement. "But the other guys and myself have agreed that Billy Sherwood will do an excellent job of covering my parts and the show as a whole will deliver the same Yes experience that our fans have come to expect over the years."



We recently viewed again their Songs From Tsongas - The 35th Anniversary Concert and Squire’s bass work throughout the show was outstanding; in fact, it was the highlight of the concert, especially his compelling solo on his song “The Fish.”



A major, major loss.




Grace & Frankie --- I finally had the chance to sit down and watch, well, at least the first five of thirteen episodes of the Jane Fonda/Lily Tomlin Netflix show Grace and Frankie, and really enjoyed it.



It’s been widely written about already, so you may well know the plot already. It’s about two couples, Fonda and Martin Sheen, Lily Tomlin and Sam Waterson, whose husbands decide to leave them both and hook up … with each other. It’s not the newest narrative in the world, but the combined talents are fierce and highly compelling.



Fonda continues her cable-net hot streak first started with her wonderful work in the Newsroom and Tomlin, well, she’s terrific, certainly equaling Fonda’s caliber here. Sheen and Waterson, besides making an interesting and believable couple, are terrific too. Who knew?



The show, from Friends-creator Marta Kauffman, is cute, almost too cute in some ways, but works for certain. The shows I saw dealt with the usual issues in a plot like this; where will we live; what do we do when the credit cards are cut off. Surprisingly, the tone of the show is somewhat similar to the new Odd Couple, with Matthew Perry and Thomas Lennon. Actually, with Kauffman involved, you can see the road signs.



With a particularly strong supporting cast; Brooklyn Decker and June Diane Raphael as Fonda’s daughters, the short, as half-hour sitcom, works terrifically well.



Did I like it … most certainly. It’s already been set for a Season Two.



CLOSING NOTES --- Gloria Reuben’s solo show Friday night at L.A.’s Saghettini was a big success, according to All Access’ Roy Trakin. "She was great; the band impressive and she gave me a head-rub when she did her Roger Rabbit number.” She’ll be back on the East Coast shortly. Catch her in USA Network’s Mr. Robot …



You have to hand it to The Stones; on their current Zip Code tour they’ve featured a special guest appearance or a deep dip into their legendary catalog at nearly every stop, and at the band's concert Saturday night at Kansas City's Arrowhead Stadium they continued that trend by having none other than Ed Sheeran, who served as their opening act for the show, later joined the band onstage to duet with Mick Jagger on "Beast of Burden” …

MIXED RESULTS FOR AARON SORKIN'S NEWSROOM

****
THE GLORIOUS CORNER

 By: G. H. Harding
 ****


 Jane Fonda



Sam Waterston
NEWSROOM  --- Aaron Sorkin’s much heralded The Newsroom (on HBO) began its sophomore season last night with somewhat mixed results. Borrowing a device from his Social Network movie, the first images are of several cast members recalling an earlier event. In plain English, that means he’s setting us up for a rather surreal (I bet) flash back; with each cast member revealing what happened in their own way. A bit tricky, but a great way to reveal the same event in several ways. Producer Maggie (Alison Pill) first look is with a rather, severe, somewhat twisted-pink haircut; a far cry from her rather demure look last season … certainly to be told is the reveal. Either you're a fan of Sorkin’s Democratic-prose, or you're not. I am and even thought this first episode had moments that dragged a bit … I loved it.


A special appearance by Jane Fonda, as the head-doyenne at the fictional AWM News (Leona Lansing), ratcheted the action into first gear. Jeff Daniels (Will McAvoy) is great; and, in many ways, the best thing he’s ever done. Sam Waterston is superb as well. Yes, he does register a rather Jack McCoy-ish vibe, but, he’s sensational. 


Sorkin’s writing is reflective and dramatic; at times a bit irritating, but somehow it all works terrifically well. Emily Mortimer’s producer-MacKenzie McHale is superb too. 



Cory Monteith



 
Ryan Murphy
CORY MONTEITH --- The first season of Fox’s Glee was superlative. Besides introducing us to a host of terrific young, actors, the story line was terrific. A High School glee-club … who would have thunk it? Chief among the actors was Canadian-born Cory Monteith. As Finn, the football player (with a heart of gold) who could sing; he dealt with a literally mesmerizing array of problems and through it all, always won! Monteith, a somewhat trouble-kid, was astonishingly good and won over everyone. His death this past weekend is just plain tragic. And, at 31 no less. He was, amazingly adept at everything. A major, major loss. He was the heart and soul of the show and it'll be interesting to see where creator Ryan Murphy now takes us, RIP Cory.




CHRISTOPHER CROSS --- Christopher Cross’ impressive career started in 1981 with his self-titled album, which sold 20 million copies worldwide and was hailed by critics as a rock masterpiece. 3 tracks from that album “Ride Like The Wind,” “All Right” and “Sailing,” topped the charts and Cross himself won 3 Grammy Awards. Last year he released the critically acclaimed album Doctor Faith and recorded the brand new 2-CDDVD set A Night In Paris. The album was filmed (by 9 HD cameras) at the notorious Theatre Le Traianon in Paris; and, show was filled with his classics as well as well as his newer material.



The all-star band was terrific, especially Richie Gajate Gracia on percussion and keyboardist Kiki Ebsen. “Ride Like The Wind” was especially well received and his performance is terrific. If you're a fan; this is a must see project.


Megan Hilty



HILTY AT PLAY --- Her Smash may be a distant memory, but actress/Broadway star Megan Hilty stopped in at Chris Gilman’s Yerba Buena Perry over the weekend to announce a project in L. A. She leaves today.

JANE FONDA'S BOYFRIEND DENIES WEDDING

Jane Fonda


Hollywood legend Jane Fonda's boyfriend is canning gossip reports that they are planning to wed this Christmas and is insisting it is "too soon" for them to marry. Jane has been dating music producer Richard Perry since the summer and they were recently rumored to have announced their engagement at a dinner party in California. He tells British magazine Hello!, "She (Fonda) thinks it's a bit too soon (to marry), and no doubt, she's right, although I said from the beginning we should make our relationship a priority." But Perry is convinced Fonda might be planning their nuptials in secret, adding: "Sometimes the thought pops into my head that Jane will organize a wedding as a wonderful surprise for me."

SEXY JANE FONDA WILL CLIMB THE HIMALAYAS

Jane Fonda


Jane Fonda loves her old age. The star says sex is better now that she's hit her seventies. The Hollywood legend has undergone a series of surgeries recently and now brags about an artificial knee and a titanium hip. The actress feels as though she is rebuilding her body from the inside out and it's giving her a new lease of life. She tells the German newspaper Bild, "I owe 30 percent (of my good looks) to genes, 30 percent to good sex, 30 percent because of sports and healthy lifestyle and for the remaining 10 per cent, I have to thank my plastic surgeon. I'm 71, but I'm happier, the sex is better and I understand life better. I don't want to be young again." The movie icon still has a another goal to achieve. She is planning a mountain climb once she is fully fit again. She adds, "I just had surgery on my back, I also have a new knee and a hip made of titanium. I'm slowly falling apart and feel like a walking spare parts depot. I had to have it all repaired because I want to climb the Himalayas. And at 8,000 feet, my body has to run smoothly."

LOHAN AND FONDA ON NATASHA RICHARDSON

Natasha Richardson


Lindsay Lohan and legend Jane Fonda are leading the tributes for Natasha Richardson, who died after suffering very serious head injuries in a skiing accident. The Hollywood star died from a "blunt impact to the head" following the incident, New York City's medical examiner has ruled. Richardson, who was married to actor Liam Neeson, was taken to hospital in Montreal, Canada after the incident on the slopes of Mont Tremblant on Monday. Neeson rushed to her bedside at the Hopital du Sacre-Coeur de Montreal as doctors battled to save her. On Tuesday, he flew her to Lenox Hill Hospital in New York City, where the stars mother, Vanessa Redgrave, and close friends and family joined him. She was removed from life support yesterday morning and died hours later. Now, Lohan, who played Richardson's daughter in the 1998 remake "The Parent Trap," has revealed her fond memories of Richardson. She says, "She was a wonderful woman and actress and treated me like I was her own. "I didn't see much of her over the years but I will miss her. My heart goes out to her family. This is a tragic loss." Hollywood veteran Jane Fonda, who first met Richardson when her "Julia" co-star Redgrave brought her on to the set of the 1977 movie, regrets she couldn't visit the actress because she was busy with performances of her Broadway play "33 Variations."She says, "I first met her on the set of 'Julia.' She was a little girl but already beautiful and graceful. It didn't surprise me that she became such a talented actor. "I wanted to go to the Lenox Hill Hospital where I was told she had been taken to see if there was anything I could do for Vanessa (Redgrave), any comfort I could bring, but today was a two-show day and as the curtain went up tonight I heard the tragic news. It is hard to even imagine what it must be like for her family. My heart is heavy."

THE LEGEND JANE FONDA ON BROADWAY

Dolly Parton And Jane Fonda Backstage


Hollywood icon Jane Fonda's return to Broadway has divided New York City's theatre critics, who have described her performance as a terminally ill academic in 33 VARIATIONS as both "elegant" and "strained". The famed actress, at age 71, took to the stage for the first time in 46 years last night, to star alongside Samantha Mathis and Colin Hanks in the Moises Kaufman play.Stars attending the show, included Renee Zellweger, Dolly Parton, Geoffrey Rush and Rosie O’Donnell, gave the actress a standing ovation, but the celebrity turnout wasn’t enough to fully win over the hard reviewers. A critic for the New York Times put aside what is branded as a "clunky" opening to applaud Fonda for her "elegantly restrained" performance, while a Washington Post writer added, "Fonda’s agelessness owes something to both the longevity of her fame and the intensity of her struggle against physical decline… On this occasion, she not only manages to transcend time, but also the material." But a reviewer for Backstage.com is more hesitant: "Her voice is occasionally strained, and she lacks the passion to make us care… Despite (co-star Zach) Grenier’s robust performance and solid work from Samantha Mathis, Colin Hanks, Don Amendolia, Susan Kellermann, and Erik Steele, these Variations are on themes that are all-too-familiar." Fonda made her Broadway debut in 1960 play There Was a Little Girl, earning her a Tony Award nomination for best featured actress, and her last stint came in 1963 drama Strange Interlude. We at Times Square Gossip think seeing a legend like Jane Fonda on Broadway, is worth the trip all in itself . 33 Variations is scheduled to run until May 24th.
