This week on the Film at Lincoln Center podcast, we're featuring a Q&A on Secrets & Lies with director Mike Leigh from our recent retrospective on the British filmmaker. Moderated by FLC programmer Dan Sullivan. They discussed the making and trajectory of Leigh's "most commercially successful" film, working with actors, and more. The acclaimed winner of the 1996 Cannes Film Festival's Palme d'Or, Mike Leigh's mid-'90s masterpiece cemented his status as the poet laureate of modern family life. The story concerns Cynthia (Brenda Blethyn, awarded Best Actress at Cannes), a working-class white woman whose personal and interpersonal lives are transformed when she learns that a Black optometrist is the child she gave up for adoption 27 years prior. Created, like Leigh's other films, after long months of intensely collaborative improvisation, Secrets & Lies is remarkable for its lived-in warmth and humor, and above all for its unflinching honesty in capturing the everyday evasions and deceptions that can define our lives. MUBI is offering a 30-day free trial for all FLC listeners.

She returned to Broadway in a 1985 revival of Peter Nichols's play Joe Egg. Along with Marlo Thomas and Olympia Dukakis, Gleason was a member of the opening-night cast of Andrew Bergman's comedy Social Security (1986), for which Gleason won the Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Featured Actress in a Play. Although she had already gained attention and honors for her stage work, her performance as the Baker's Wife in Stephen Sondheim's wry fairy-tale musical Into the Woods (1987) made her a Broadway leading lady. The musical itself won Tonys® for Best Book of a Musical and Best Original Score, and Gleason earned a Tony® for Best Actress in a Musical. Her singing is preserved on the original Broadway cast recording. In the Thin Man-inspired musical Nick and Nora (1991) by Arthur Laurents, Charles Strouse, and Richard Maltby Jr., Gleason played the leading lady, and in Dirty Rotten Scoundrels (2005). A familiar presence in movies and on television, Gleason appeared in two of Woody Allen's films – as Tony Roberts's embarrassed wife in Hannah and Her Sisters (1986) and as Allen's spouse in Crimes and Misdemeanors (1989). In Boogie Nights, she played Mark Wahlberg's abusive mother. On television, she was a regular on the CBS sitcom Love & War as the restaurant waitress Nadine Berkus. Other series in which Gleason appeared regularly are Hello, Larry; Temporarily Yours; Oh Baby; and Bette. She is married to the actor Chris Sarandon.

With three decades of experience in the business, Rachel recalls her SNL days where she worked for seven years and compares the pressure that came along with it and how it differs from doing Broadway. She speaks candidly about her love for comedy, particularly improv and sketch, and whether she'll ever try drama on stage or in movies.

On episode 134 of The AwardsWatch Podcast, Executive Editor Ryan McQuade is joined by Editor-in-Chief Erik Anderson, as well as AwardsWatch contributors Nicole Ackman, Sophia Ciminello, and Dan Bayer, as they discuss their first predictions of the Best Actor and Actress races of the 2023 Oscar season. Starting off this week's show, the group give their brief thoughts on the new Harry Styles album, and talk about their favorite concerts that they have ever gone to. Once done, they continued their conversation from last week about previewing this year's Oscar season with a look at Best Actor. With his Erik's first predictions just published, it looks like Leonardo DiCaprio is in the number one spot, with the hopes of landing his second Academy Award. But as they get to talking, everyone brings up their own actor who could challenge DiCaprio in these very early projections. As they wrapped up Best Actor, the conversation shifted to a bit on the Best Actress, which is just as chaotic as it usually is. Erik's Best Actress predictions article should be releasing later this week. Moving on to listener questions, the gang talk about their biggest pet peeves about the discourse surrounding award season and what they would change or get rid of if they could. They also share some brief thoughts on the first reactions out of the Cannes Film Festival, as well as what might win the screenplay prize given out by the Cannes jury. Lastly, they talk about the Emmy's and the nomination chances for the shows Yellowjackets and Severance, as well as Better Call Saul actress Rhea Seehorn's chances in Best Supporting Actress in a Drama Series. In the final segment of the show, the gang played two games. The first game is another round of Call Me by Your Tagline, this time with a Cannes related theme. The second game they play is a round of the beloved Cinephile game, in which they played the Filmography, in which each host takes a term in naming a film from an actor selected on the chosen card. The actor chosen was the beloved Julianne Moore, and it led to a lengthy battle between everyone that you won't want to miss.

The year is 1960 and the nominees are: 1. Katherine Hepburn - Suddenly, Last Summer 2. Elizabeth Taylor - Suddenly, Last Summer 3. Doris Day - Pillow Talk 4. Audrey Hepburn - The Nun's Story 5. Simone Signoret - Room at the Top In 1960 Simone Signoret became the second French actress (the first was Claudette Colbert) to win the Academy Award for Best Actress for a British film, Room at the Top. This was one of the first British films to openly depict adultery and suggest sex was enjoyable. It received an ‘X' rating and, naturally, was a huge box office success. Signoret won best actress at the National Board of Review, Cannes, and BAFTAs. Her competition was absolutely star studded! Katherine Hepburn & Elizabeth Taylor were both nominated for ‘Suddenly, Last Summer' - an INSANE movie with homophobic undertones and hilarious mental health tropes with amazing performances from both Taylor and Hepburn. Although they had extremely repetitive dialogue, I would recommend giving it a watch if only for it's campy value and Hepburn's fabulous elevator entrance(s). Doris Day was nominated for her ‘risqué' work in Pillow Talk - playing an interior decorator being deceived and manipulated by Rock Hudson for romantic purposes (lol @ the 50's). Audrey Hepburn was nominated for The Nun's Story portraying the real life story of Marie-Louise Habets who struggles with her devotion to her vows during crisis, disappointment, and WW2. Join host Kyle Brownrigg with guest host Dan Dillabough as they discuss.
