Jennifer Lawrence to Receive Sherry Lansing Award at Hollywood Reporter Women in

first_imgOscar-winning actress Jennifer Lawrence and distinguished film producer-executive Amy Pascal will be honored at The Hollywood Reporter’s 2017 Women in Entertainment breakfast, it was announced today.The star-studded gala will take place Dec. 6 at Milk Studios in Los Angeles.Academy Award-winning actress-filmmaker Angelina Jolie will deliver the keynote speech at the VIP event, where $1 million in university scholarships will be given to young women from disadvantaged backgrounds who have taken part in the Reporter’s highly competitive, eight-year-old Women in Entertainment Mentorship Program.Lawrence will become the youngest person ever to receive the Sherry Lansing Leadership Award, given annually to a woman who has been a pioneer and philanthropic leader in her industry. Last year, the four-time Academy Award nominee (and winner for Silver Linings Playbook) donated $2 million to establish the Jennifer Lawrence Foundation Cardiac Intensive Care Unit at Kosair Children’s Hospital in her hometown, Louisville, Kentucky. The Jennifer Lawrence Foundation also assists a wide range of charitable organizations, supporting abused and neglected youth, along with many educational and health organizations. Lawrence recently joined the board of Represent.Us, the nation’s largest grassroots anti-corruption campaign which brings together conservatives, progressives and everyone in between to work towards fixing America’s corrupt political system. She also has been outspoken on issues of gender pay disparity and privacy rights in Hollywood.Lawrence follows a long line of extraordinary Sherry Lansing Award recipients, including Barbra Streisand, Shonda Rhimes, Oprah Winfrey, Diane Keaton, Jane Fonda, Helen Mirren, Halle Berry, Jodie Foster, Glenn Close, Barbara Walters and, most recently, Tina Fey.Meryl Streep, a former Lansing Award recipient, will present Pascal with the second annual Equity in Entertainment Award, given to an individual in the showbiz community who has proved committed to providing opportunities for women and people of color. Pascal follows writer-producer Ryan Murphy, last year’s recipient. A former chairman of Sony Pictures Entertainment, Pascal is also the producer of such movies as Spider-Man: Homecoming and the upcoming Molly’s Game and The Post. Her company, Pascal Pictures, strives to create avenues for women and people of color, in front of the camera and behind it.“Both Jennifer and Amy perfectly embody the driving force behind THR’s Women in Entertainment initiative,” said Matthew Belloni, Editorial Director of The Hollywood Reporter. “They continue to use their voices and their talent to create opportunities for women in the industry, and I can’t think of two more deserving individuals to honor.”“Having Jennifer agree to accept the Sherry Lansing Leadership Award is a wonderful honor,” said Lansing, the former CEO of Paramount Pictures and the first woman to head a Hollywood studio. “In merely a decade, her remarkable professional achievements, her willingness to take risks, and her philanthropic generosity have inspired millions. She reminds young women all over the world that their voices are meant to be heard. The Hollywood Reporter could not have chosen a better individual to recognize.”Jolie, whose Cambodian war drama First They Killed My Father was recently selected as that country’s entry for the Best Foreign Language Picture at the upcoming 90th Academy Awards, has enjoyed a year of striking achievement. In addition to continuing her humanitarian work — which includes over a decade of service as Special Envoy of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees — she is soon to reprise her title role in Disney’s upcoming sequel to its 2014 blockbuster Maleficent.“Angelina Jolie has dedicated her life to helping women and girls in war zones, from her girls’ school in Kenya to her primary schools in eastern Afghanistan,” said Belloni. “Her efforts to end sexual violence worldwide is unparalleled in the Hollywood community, and we’re humbled and exhilarated that she’ll be delivering our keynote speech this year.”Additionally, $1 million in university scholarships will be given to girls now taking part in The Hollywood Reporter’s Women in Entertainment Mentorship Program. Among the scholarships, each of the 18 girls currently in the program will receive $10,000 to attend the university of her choice (jointly funded by Lifetime and Entertainment Industry Foundation), with two girls receiving full-ride scholarships worth more than $240,000 apiece to attend Loyola Marymount University.The Women in Entertainment breakfast, sponsored by Lifetime and Loyola Marymount University in partnership with the Entertainment Industry Foundation, coincides with the publication of The Hollywood Reporter’s annual Women in Entertainment: Power 100, the definitive guide to the leading women in film and television.last_img read more

Commentary Retirement should not halt Ohio State involvement for Michael Redd

Then-Milwaukee Bucks guard Michael Redd (22) attempts to beat a defender during a game against the Detroit Pistons Oct. 7, 2009, at the Palace of Auburn Hills.Credit: Courtesy of MCTAs a child, I was raised to be a Buckeye from the start. My mom instilled these beliefs in me as an infant, and my father didn’t have a say in the matter. If he had, it wouldn’t have been any different.I became an avid fan myself though, just before the age of 10. This was largely because of the OSU men’s basketball team and really just two players.Scoonie Penn and Michael Redd are two of OSU’s most memorable former athletes, and they successfully led their team to a 1999 NCAA tournament Final Four appearance. This, however, would later be vacated from the record books because of a rule violation under then-coach Jim O’Brien. I still count it.Redd was a monster player at shooting guard for all three years he attended the OSU, with scoring averages of 21.9 points, 19.5 points and 17.3 points, respectively. His freshman season has yet to be topped by any Buckeye, as he leads all freshmen with 658 points, a 21.9 scoring average and 241 field goals made. Redd has some strong company in Buckeye freshmen, outscoring former OSU stars Jared Sullinger, Greg Oden, Jim Jackson and Herb Williams.Redd ended up with 1,879 career points in 96 games, good enough for sixth in the OSU record books for career point totals. Both Redd and Penn quickly became OSU legends and Redd continued his stellar level of play in the NBA after three seasons as a Buckeye.In 2000, Redd was drafted by the Milwaukee Bucks and played for them for 11 years. Redd reached a career best 26.7 points per game in the 2006-07 season, including a season a franchise record 57 points against Utah. He was a member of the U.S. gold-medal winning basketball team in the 2008 Beijing Olympics, and set an NBA record for three-pointers in a quarter when he made eight shots from beyond the arc in the fourth period against Houston on Feb. 20, 2002.Redd, who is back with Milwaukee after a short stint in Phoenix, is set to retire from the game Wednesday night against the Cleveland Cavaliers. He leaves as Milwaukee’s fourth all-time leading scorer, but I doubt he leaves the game for good. The game means too much to him, and he means too much to it.He currently has a home in New Albany, a mere 20 minutes from OSU’s Columbus campus. I would like to see him get more involved in OSU athletics and I feel like he will.Granted, he needs to take some time off and enjoy the life of retirement, but eventually I hope to see him walking around campus like I do other Buckeye legends and with his $500,000 donation to the new Buckeye locker room called, “The Michael Redd Locker Room,” I feel it may be sooner rather than later. read more

Football Ryan Day views himself as placeholder in Meyers absence

Ohio State acting head coach Ryan Day addresses the media on Aug. 27 prior to the first game of the season against Oregon State. Credit: Amal Saeed | Assistant Photo EditorIn his first press conference as Ohio State’s acting head coach, Ryan Day wanted to talk about football. Day began by saying he was not a part of the investigation of head coach Urban Meyer: he was not interviewed and he had nothing to add. “Today I would like to talk about football and this team,” Day said. “Out of respect for everybody involved, I’m not going to speak today on the independent investigation, the report, or any speculation regarding it.”As Day takes over as acting head coach for the first three games of the 2018 season and Meyer serves his three-game suspension, the repercussions of his absence still loomed as the season opener neared. Even though he did not want to talk about the investigation, Day made clear he was not there to replace Meyer. He said his role in the first three games of the season will be to to empower the coaching staff and his players and just keep the program up and running. Day has taken on increased responsibility, not only tasked with becoming acting head coach, but guiding redshirt sophomore Dwayne Haskins during his first snaps as the starter as the quarterbacks coach and offensive coordinator. “There’s been times where I felt like I’ve been drinking through a fire hose, to be honest,” Day said. “The expectation of Ohio State is you win every game and I understand that. So there’s that added pressure there that you feel.”As he addressed Ohio State as interim head coach, Day used the phrase “win the moment” to define the transition he has gone through. Instead of focusing on the future and what was to come, Day got his players to focus on the present, encouraging them to use their energy on the moment.That is exactly the focus Day has on his first career game as a head coach. “I’ve been trying to focus on today, and then tomorrow we’ll focus on tomorrow and then we just go from there,” Day said. “Because there is no script, so we’ve just been working forward.” When Meyer was placed on administrative leave on Aug. 1, Day was contacted by athletic director Gene Smith, telling him he was going to be the acting head coach at Ohio State until the investigation and subsequent punishment was complete. Even with two former head coaches on Meyer’s coaching staff in defensive coordinator Greg Schiano and offensive coordinator Kevin Wilson, the message Day received from Smith after he was hired was to trust his instincts. Day had never been a head coach before. Prior to being hired as a quarterbacks coach and, eventually, promoted to offensive coordinator at Ohio State, he was a quarterbacks coach with both the Philadelphia Eagles and the San Francisco 49ers. During this time of adjustment, he leaned on one of the former coaches that mean the most to him. “I got a text message and I get it just about every other day from one of my mentors, Chip Kelly, and he says, ‘you’re built for this,’” Day said. “That’s what he told me. And that’s the thing I keep going to every morning when I wake up, is that I’m built for this.”As a head coach, Day said he has to watch the game a bit differently, noticing the whole picture as opposed to just the quarterbacks or the offense as a whole. He said his perspective has widened over the past month by watching players on and off the field, their attitude and mentality as they go through each aspect of a specific practice. Being on staff with him for one season, Schiano, as a defensive coordinator, said he has not directly seen the work Day has done on the field.But, in Day’s time as head coach, Schiano said he’s very impressed. “I mean, he’s got the ‘it,’” Schiano said. “When you work on the other side of the ball, you really don’t get to sit in the room with him very much and game plan and do all that stuff. So our relationship was more friends than professional, we don’t do a lot together professionally. Observing him over the last whatever it is, 25 days, he’s got the ‘it.’” Day said he does not think Ohio State has missed a beat since Meyer was placed on administrative leave. He said that is due to the culture of the team, the leadership and example that the newly named captains have shown through preseason camp. That was his goal all along. When he runs onto the field on Sept. 1, in front of his Ohio State team, Day said he will not view it as his head coaching debut. Yes, his family will be in attendance, but he views himself as just a placeholder until Meyer returns. “This isn’t one of those things where I’m becoming the head coach,” Day said. “This is just something that I’m holding the place for coach until he gets back and the goal is to win the game against Oregon State.” read more

2020 Volvo V60 XC60 get the Polestar Engineered treatment

first_imgA trio of Polestar Engineered Volvos — how lovely. Volvo If you’re bummed you didn’t get one of Volvo’s superlimited-production S60 Polestar Engineered sedans before they sold out, well, buck up, little camper. Volvo announced Wednesday it’s bringing a few more high-performance treats to the US — and this time, they’ll even be wagon- and SUV-shaped.Starting this summer, you’ll be able to order Polestar Engineered versions of the V60 wagon and XC60 crossover. These cars get the same upgrades as the S60 Polestar Engineered sedan, including a nifty Öhlins suspension and bigger brakes with gold-painted calipers. On top of that, you’ll get a similar list of visual enhancements, including new wheels, black chrome tailpipes and a gloss black grille.Of course, you also get a power boost. All Polestar Engineered cars are powered by a higher-output version of Volvo’s T8 Twin-Engine plug-in hybrid powertrain, putting out 415 horsepower and 494 pound-feet of torque. Compared with the standard XC60 T8, that’s an increase of 15 horsepower and 22 pound-feet. And since Volvo doesn’t offer a T8-trim V60 in the US, this is your only way to get a plug-in hybrid version of Volvo’s excellent wagon.Volvo Polestar Engineered ModelsBig wheels and gold calipers look rad on the XC60 crossover. Volvo We’ll admit, the Polestar Engineered model isn’t our favorite version of the S60 sedan. Its powertrain isn’t as smooth as the turbocharged T5 and turbocharged-and-supercharged T6 options. Plus, the transition between regenerative and mechanical braking is really harsh. We found this to be true of the not-for-US V60 T8, as well.Volvo hasn’t announced pricing for these models, but based on current XC60 T8 numbers, it’s safe to assume they’ll land somewhere north of $60,000. Unlike the 2019 model year S60 Polestar Engineered, which was limited to just 20 cars for the US, there will be “considerably more” 2020 models, a Volvo spokesperson confirmed to Roadshow. That includes a second run of S60s, and Volvo says the 2020 models “will be available via traditional channels and not through Care by Volvo” (the automaker’s subscription service).Considering the buzz the S60 Polestar Engineered sedan generated when it launched, I can’t imagine Volvo will have a hard time finding homes for its latest batch of hot hybrids. Besides, that V60 just looks hella good.
