Edelstein Remembers Miramax“Your recent films ‘The Queen’ and ‘Diving Bell’ were the best of their respective years, and you never made anything as grisly as ‘Nine.’
The Weinsteins Want the Miramax Name BackAt last night’s premiere of ‘The Road’ we spoke to him about sibling rivalry with his brother Harvey and their attempts to convince Wes Craven to direct ‘Scream 4.’
Emma Thompson Fights Miramax’s Weight-Loss DemandsEver wonder why some actresses suddenly show up to award shows all thin and sickly? (Besides for the obvious reasons, we mean.) Well, it’s kind of like when guys show up with facial hair, looking inappropriately scrubby and explain that it’s for a movie role: Studios sometimes ask actresses lose weight when they don’t need to.

Javier Bardem and Josh Brolin Impress, Creep Out Partygoers“You know, I host a show about crime,” said CourtTV’s Jami Floyd, leaning in very close to Javier Bardem. “I’ve interviewed serial killers. You’re the only one who ever gave me nightmares.” The actor managed a polite smile. The official purpose of yesterday’s lunch at The Four Seasons, hosted by Miramax president Daniel Battsek, was to honor Bardem and Josh Brolin for their performances in the Coens’ No Country for Old Men (and, one assumes, to kick-start the Oscar buzz). Its unofficial running refrain, however, was people coming up to Bardem and telling him, by way of compliment, that he made them shit their pants.
