Stars shimmer at the Golden Globes
Dermot Mulroney’s on-screen reunion with Julia Roberts
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Even the sometimes-offbeat Golden Globe Awards are unable to resist the allure of movie stars who dabble in television work.
Julia Roberts, Amy Adams, Jim Carrey and Michael Douglas were among the nominees announced Thursday for next month's awards voted by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.
NEW YORK (AP) — Julia Roberts is sitting on a couch in a Soho hotel when Lucas Hedges bursts in and begins frantically searching for his phone, sending pillows flying.
"This is what I say to Finn," Roberts says, referencing one of her three children as she instructs her 21-year-old co-star. "Where did you go from here, honey?"
In one of Julia Roberts' many heartbreaking scenes in "Ben is Back" — and they're pretty much all heartbreaking — she lays down the law to her 19-year-old son, a recovering drug addict who's shown up unexpectedly for Christmas.
"You have one day," Holly tells Ben with all the authority she can muster. She'll be on him like a hawk, she says. She'll even sleep on his floor. "For 24 hours, you're mine, all mine," she concludes. "Got it?"

Julia Roberts is heading to the small screen
LOS ANGELES (AP) — There's so much television to watch or pretend to watch — have you really followed all of wrenching "The Handmaid's Tale" or even heartwarming "This Is Us"? — the guru who coined the term "peak TV" is upping the ante.
John Landgraf, the erudite chief executive of FX Networks, warned that TV's golden age may be morphing into a gilded one, borrowing Mark Twain's zinger aimed at the late 19th-century's crass excess.

The 50-year-old Oscar winner does not have a Twitter or Facebook account.
Steven Soderbergh's "Ocean's Eleven" remake is a hard movie to live up to. Its starry charm was backed by a breezy and deceptively dense script full of memorable characters, dizzyingly complex logistics and lively filmmaking that Soderbergh himself couldn't even recreate in the two sequels. But it is undeniable that even the near-perfect "Eleven" was missing something pretty major: Women. You know, besides Julia Roberts, that blackjack dealer and the one exotic dancer.

Julia Roberts: ‘Kindness is the new black’
It's hard for us cynical souls to walk into a movie advertised with the tagline "Choose kindness" and not shudder in trepidation. What sentimental hooey is this? What new hellish circle of cheese awaits now?
And yet Stephen Chbosky's "Wonder," despite its Hallmark Card appearance, is far from the "Clockwork Orange"-like exercise in emotional manipulation some might fear. Even the most pessimistic of us may actually find it charming and genuinely affecting.
LONDON (AP) — "Wonder" could have been designed as an antidote to the headlines. It's a thoroughly positive movie about the importance of kindness.
Based on R.J. Palacio's best-selling children's novel, the movie follows Auggie Pullman, a boy with a craniofacial deformity, as he takes his first anxious steps into an intimidating world.
