The Washington D.C. screening, held at the Newseum, was the ultimate mash-up of Fictional Washington and Real Washington: boldface actors who play Posties and government types on the big screen jostled alongside real-life Washington journalists and officials. Jeffrey P. Bezos, the Amazon founder and chief executive who owns the Post, and Post publisher Fred Ryan passed by with smiles and nods, as did other locals, including CBS’s Major Garrett, Chris Wallace of Fox News, and Sen. Patrick J. Leahy (D-Vt.). Spielberg says that shouldn’t be interpreted as explicitly partisan, even though President Trump is waging a daily Twitter war against the mainstream media. “It’s a patriotic film,” Spielberg says. “I don’t think patriotism is partisan.” Pictures have been added to the photo gallery, with many thanks to Maria for submitting some of them. More coverage of the Washington promotion follows tomorrow.

News courtesy Digital Spy: The Graham Norton Show is really rolling out the red carpet and inviting Hollywood royalty onto its sofa. On Friday, January 19, the late night chat show will welcome Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks. Both actors will be promoting their forthcoming Steven Spielberg movie The Post, which has already picked up awards season buzz and nominations And… that’s it! Yes, apart from musical guests in the form of band First Aid Kit, Tom and Meryl will be the ONLY celebrity guests; which, if you think about it, actually makes a lot of sense. We mean, any more star power put on the sofa and it would FOR SURE crumble to dust. The Post tells the true story of Katharine Graham (Streep); the first female publisher of The Washington Post. With help from editor Ben Bradlee (Hanks), she races to catch up with The New York Times to expose a massive cover-up of government secrets that spans three decades and four US presidents. The movie was actually on last year’s ‘Black List’ (best movie scripts without a deal), and was rushed to cinemas in an incredibly quick – and practically unheard of – turnaround. It’s now primed to dominate the awards season. The Post has already been nominated for six Golden Globes; with both Streep and Hanks up for the best actress and actor in a a motion picture gongs respectively. Spielberg was nominated for best director, while the film has also secured nominations for Best Motion Picture, Best Screenplay and Best Original Score. The Post is in cinemas on January 19. The Graham Norton Show featuring Hanks and Streep will air at 10.35 pm on Friday, January 19 on BBC One.

New article by The Washington Post: A little less than a year ago, just before the inauguration of Donald Trump, Meryl Streep accepted the Cecil B. DeMille Award at the Golden Globes ceremony in Los Angeles, using her speech to castigate the president-elect for his treatment of the press during the presidential campaign, especially a disabled New York Times reporter. “This instinct to humiliate, when it’s modeled by someone in the public platform, by someone powerful, it filters down into everybody’s life, because it kinda gives permission for other people to do the same thing,” she said to a crowd of her largely supportive peers. “Disrespect invites disrespect; violence incites violence. And when the powerful use their position to bully others, we all lose.” She concluded by rallying support for the Committee to Protect Journalists. Streep’s remarks — the first widely publicized criticism of Trump by a world-famous figure since his election — became a fulcrum moment, especially in Hollywood. “It felt like [she] was finally letting the air out of the room,” producer Kristie Mocosko Krieger recalls. “We were all just keeping our mouths shut for so long, and [Meryl was] like, ‘[Forget] it — I’m not keeping my mouth shut anymore.’” The screenwriter Liz Hannah remembers the Golden Globes speech just as vividly. At the time, her script for “The Post,” about Washington Post publisher Katharine Graham confronting the perilous decision to publish the Pentagon Papers in 1971, was making the rounds in Hollywood. Immediately after Streep spoke, one of “The Post’s” producers, Tim White, texted Hannah and fellow producer Amy Pascal. “He said, ‘Did you see Meryl give her speech?’” Hannah recalls. “And I said, ‘Yeah.’ And he said, ‘That’s Kay.’”. The complete article can be read over at The Washington Post. Many thanks to Glenn for the heads-up.

At the annual Massachusetts Conference for Women in Boston on Thursday, Streep, in conversation with feminist activist Gloria Steinem, said that she and other notable women in Hollywood are making very specific demands to industry executives about the future – namely, she said, for equal pay. “We are after 50/50 by 2020,” she said, per U.S. News & World Report. “Equal means equal. And if it starts at the top, none of these shenanigans would have filtered down and it wouldn’t have been tolerated.” Streep has long been encouraging Congress to back the Equal Rights Amendment. In 2015, she sent every single member a package in the mail that contained a personal letter asking them to “stand up for equality – for your mother, your daughter, your sister, your wife or yourself – by actively supporting the Equal Rights Amendment” and a copy of E.R.A. Coalition President Jessica Neuwirth’s book, Equal Means Equal. Streep later said that Congress essentially ignored her plea. But, at the conference on Thursday, Streep said that now – as dozens of men, in Hollywood and beyond, fall from their positions of power after sexual assault allegations – is the time to, once again, demand change. “It’s such an interesting moment, because this conversation about why this is so widespread, this is really worth having and it’s fantastic,” she said. “I can’t help thinking it’s just a door that’s opening to a better world.” She called the recent allegations “the most gargantuan example of disrespect.” Her quote from the conference has been widely misquoted and misunderstood by everyone who doesn’t read beyond the headlines, so take your time to get the facts. Hopefully, a full video from the conference will be posted soon.
