“Mank,” “Tenet,” “Da 5 Bloods” and “Soul” have won the feature-film awards at the 25th annual Art Directors Guild Awards, which were handed out in a virtual ceremony on Saturday. “Mank” won in the period-film category, the ADG category that most closely corresponds to the Oscar for Best Production Design. “Tenet” won in the fantasy category, “Da 5 Bloods” in the contemporary category and “Soul” in the animated category. In the 14 years since the current ADG categories were established, the winner in the period category has gone on to win the Oscar for Best Production Design six times, the fantasy winner has taken the Oscar four times, and the contemporary winner has won the Oscar once. In all but three of those years, the Oscar has gone to one of the ADG winners.

A former ballerina and fashion model, Diane Kruger, star of Inglourious Basterds among other hits, has always maintained a slender figure. However, on Thursday, the German actress showed off some serious guns—arm muscles that is. "Cali lifestyle," she captioned in image taken in her kitchen, showing off her flat abs and perfectly chiseled arms, adding the hashtag, "I can't talk about protein powder ever again," with two weightlifter emojis. So, how does Diane keep herself in tip-top shape? Here are a few of her health, wellness, and fitness tips and tricks. 1 She Works Out "A Lot" @dianekruger / InstagramAs you can tell from this Instagram photo, Kruger is incredibly active, she told The New Potato a few years back. "I work out a lot. I kind of got into it recently…just the gym or hiking, maybe four to five times a week." Her drive to exercise? "I want to be strong, it's bizarre," she revealed during another interview with Coveteur. "I come from ballet, so I used to work out pretty much every day until I was 15. Then I did ballroom dancing for a while, but by the time I was 18 I never used to go to the gym or work out at all. I would just not do anything because I was traveling so much and I was like, 'I don't want to go to the gym.' About two or three years ago I had to gain weight for a movie, and it wouldn't come off—I've been the same weight my entire life, and it wouldn't come off, so I started going to the gym. I guess it's coming from ballet, I have a very competitive thing in me and I got really into it and I love it. Now I go four or five times a week—I do Pilates, I do Xtend Barre. I just love it, and it makes me feel strong, and I feel confident." 2 She Refuses to Drink Her Meals You won't find Kruger doing a juice cleanse. "I don't believe in all those juicing [crazes]. I believe I should be able to eat everything I love in moderation, and I kind of do," she told Coveteur. She does, however, start her mornings off with a hot cup of coffee. 3 She Doesn't Obsess Over Food Norman Reedus and Diane Kruger (Photo by Roy Rochlin/Getty Images)"I know when I feel best, when I'm at a certain weight, when I eat a certain way—I just try to be really healthy without going crazy," Kruger, who is partners with The Walking Dead star Norman Reedus, told the Coveteur. "I try to eat organic, but I'm not obsessive about food," she added to The New Potato. An average eating day for Diane? "Poached eggs with avocado on multigrain bread for breakfast, some sort of salmon dish for lunch, nuts as snacks during the day, and maybe chicken or veal for dinner with veggies and red wine," she revealed. One of her favorite types of food? "Pho, I'm into it. I don't really have a sweet tooth, I like sweets every once in a while, but I'm not obsessed. It's more salty stuff, I go for really greasy Chinese food," she told Coveteur. 4 She Makes Sleep a Priority Getting her beauty sleep is one of Kruger's secrets to healthy success. "I do the best, truly, when I get enough sleep. I don't know why, but I'm really not good on no sleep. A lot of people are not, but if I truly don't get nine hours, I'm not good. I feel best when I feel rested and also when I feel like I have enough time for myself to do the things that I love doing that is not work. I love work, but I need a day every now and then," she told Coveteur. One of her tricks? Getting in a late night workout. 5 She Treats Herself @dianekruger / InstagramKruger knows the importance of self-care. "I like to get Thai massages, which is my favorite because they're very energizing," she told Coveteur. She also likes to take a day for herself to decompress. "I try to not do anything but get a manicure or pedicure—just be by myself, go see a movie by myself, not really hang out with anyone."
The Directors Guild of America is presenting its 73rd annual awards on Saturday. TheWrap will update the winners as they are announced. In the first award of the night, Susanna Fogel won the award for comedy-series directing for “The Flight Attendant.” Thomas Schlamme, who currently serves as president of the DGA, won the variety-special award for “A West Wing Special to Benefit When We All Vote” and spoke out against voter-suppression laws around the country. For the first time ever, the DGA nominated two women in the feature-film category. Emerald Fennell (“Promising Young Woman”) and Chloe Zhao (“Nomadland”) are the ninth and 10th women ever nominated for the award, with Kathryn Bigelow being the only woman to be nominated twice and the only one to win, which she did for “The Hurt Locker” in 2010. The Directors Guild Award for feature film is one of the most reliable Oscar predictors, with the winner going on to win the Best Director Oscar 64 times in 72 years. Still, the disagreements between Oscar and DGA voters have happened more often since 2000 than they did in previous years: After differing only four times in the DGA’s first 52 years, the groups have diverged four more times in the last 20 years. One of those occurred last year, when Sam Mendes won the Directors Guild Award for “1917” while Bong Joon Ho took the Oscar for “Parasite.” The DGA’s record at predicting the Oscar Best Picture winner is also strong, with the film that wins with the guild also taking the top Oscar more than 75% of the time. But over the past decade, as Oscar splits between the director and picture categories have become more common, the DGA has predicted the Oscar best-pic winner five times and failed to do so the other five. A number of lifetime achievement and service awards were also handed out at the show. Paris Barclay received the Life Membership Award, Betty Thomas the Robert B. Alrich Service Award, Brian E. Frankish the Frank Capra Achievement Award and Joyce Thomas the Franklin J. Schaffner Achievement Award. Here is the list of DGA nominees. Winners are indicated with *WINNER.

It took writer and director Aaron Sorkin fourteen years after the initial meeting with Steven Spielberg at his house on a Saturday back in 2006 to finally get “The Trial of the Chicago 7” made. And according to Sorkin, it finally came together thanks to former president Donald Trump. “I don’t want to give Donald Trump credit for anything, but he’s the one who got Chicago seven made,” Sorkin tells moderator Jimmie Briggs at The Wrap’s screening series of the film. “Because he would have these protests, he would have these rallies, and there would be protesters at the rallies, and he would start getting nostalgic about the old days when they ‘Carry that guy out of here on a stretcher,’ ‘I’d like to beat the crap out of him,’ ‘Let’s punch him right in the face.'” “Suddenly, American and Anti-American was being defined the old stupid way, if you’re protesting during the singing of the national anthem at a football game, if you’re silently kneeling, you don’t love America,” added Sorkin. Also Read: Aaron Sorkin 'Really Thrilled' at His First Golden Globes Directing Nomination for 'Chicago 7' “Not only that but — I’m sure I’m not telling you anything you don’t know — ‘You’re ungrateful.’ You’re ungrateful to America as if what they really mean by that is that we white people have given you a chance to make a million dollars playing football and this is how you treat us? As if Colin Kaepernick didn’t work his ass off every day of his life to become an elite athlete and he gave it up! Gave it up to do the right thing! That knocks me out.” Given the state of the country at time under Trump, Spielberg convinced Sorkin to go forward. “So Trump and his Trumpness made Steven Spielberg say now is the time to make this movie, and by then I had directed my first film, he said you’re gonna direct it, and now the riots of your problem,” Sorkin said. “We thought the film was plenty relevant last winter when we were making it, we didn’t need and certainly didn’t want it to get more relevant.” “But plainly it did in May, with the killings of George Floyd and Brianna Taylor, protests breaking out and cities all across America, and in a number of those cities those protesters being met once again by riot clubs and tear gas. The grand finale on January 6th, Donald Trump stands at a microphone and does exactly what the Chicago 7 were on trial for doing.” “The Trial of the Chicago 7” is based on a true story of a peaceful protest at the 1968 Democratic National Convention that turned into a violent clash with police and the National Guard and sparked a riot and trial that transfixed the nation. The organizers of the protest-including Abbie Hoffman, Jerry Rubin, Tom Hayden and Bobby Seale-were charged with conspiracy to incite a riot, and the trial that followed was one of the most notorious in history. Sorkin both wrote and directed “The Trial of the Chicago 7,” and it’s produced by Marc Platt, Stuart Besser, Matt Jackson and Tyler Thompson. The film boasts a cast that includes Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Michael Keaton, Frank Langella, John Carroll Lynch, Eddie Redmayne, Mark Rylance, Alex Sharp, Jeremy Strong, Noah Robbins, Danny Flaherty, Ben Shenkman, Kelvin Harrison Jr., Caitlin Fitzgerald, Alice Kremelberg, John Doman, J.C. MacKenzie, Damien Young, Wayne Duvall and C.J. Wilson alongside Sacha Baron Cohen. Watch the full interview in the embed above.

Bill Maher went on an extended rant about the “depressing” lineup of Best Picture nominees at the Oscars this year, pinning blame on “virtue signaling” among Hollywood liberals. “You couldn’t have a worse time at the movies if there was an active shooter in the theater,” Maher says, during the six-minute segment on Friday’s episode of “Real Time.” “The 2021 Oscars, brought to you by razor blades, Kleenex, and rope. Please welcome our host, the sad emoji.” Maher ran through the list of nominees including Chloe Zhao’s “Nomadland,” the Carey Mulligan revenge thriller “Promising Young Woman” and Minari, “the story of dirt-poor Korean immigrants in Arkansas who put all their food in a barn but then grandma has a stroke and burns it down. Now enjoy the show!” Also Read: Bill Maher's Got Some Shocking New Fun Facts About Matt Gaetz (Video) Maher also compared the nominated films to “traffic school at the Holocaust museum” and complained about the host-less Oscar ceremony where “the funniest part of the whole night” is the “In Memoriam” segment. “Academy nominations used to say, ‘What great movies we make. Now they say, ‘Look what good people we are,'” Maher said, bemoaning the fact that “Hollywood used to know how to make a movie that was about something, a movie for adults that was also entertaining and not just depressing.” “I keep asking myself why do so many liberals have the seeming desire to want to be sad,” Maher said. “Could it be because being sad allows you to feel like you’re doing something about a problem without actually having to do anything?

(This article contains spoilers for “The Whole World Is Watching,” the fourth episode of the Marvel Disney+ series “The Falcon and Winter Soldier”) John Walker (Wyatt Russell), aka the new Captain America, showed us his true self on “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier” this week — in more ways than one. The new Cap has struggled to feel like he belongs in a world full of gods and aliens and super soldiers, and for good reason. He’s just a regular soldier the U.S. government decided to name the new Captain America without consulting so far as we know with any current MCU heroes. He hasn’t been trained to fight these battles, so of course he’s going to get whooped. Also Read: 'The Falcon and the Winter Soldier': Could Sharon Carter Be the Power Broker? And so we have this new Captain America, and he’s just trash at his job. He’s embarrassed, and certainly looks like he hasn’t been sleeping because of his frustration at being sidelined by actual heroes. There’s an easy remedy to this issue: Partner up with Sam and Bucky, and follow their lead. But this Toxic Masculinity Captain America can’t do that. He’s freaking Captain America. He’s supposed to be the lead. He can’t take orders from these…sidekicks. Even though they’re better than him at everything. Even though they’ve actually fought superhuman folks — and worse — before. Even though they have some idea how to operate freely like this, and John Walker doesn’t. The show is called “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier,” but this guy thinks it should be a Captain America show. For most of the episode, the new Captain America is just a huge clown, seething with rage about his numerous inadequacies. Like some kind of message board incel wondering when we’re finally gonna talk about MEN’s rights. Also Read: 'The Falcon and the Winter Soldier': Steve Rogers Really Screwed Sharon Over And then he gets a hold of the final vial of super soldier serum. And he puts that stuff in his body. And he graduates to Captain Clown. Way back in “Captain America: The First Avenger,” the creator of the original super soldier serum, Abraham Erskine (Stanley Tucci), said that ‘the serum amplifies everything that is inside. So good becomes great — bad becomes worse.” Steve Rogers was a “good becomes great” kind of situation, and it looks like John Walker is the other one. It’s been kind of a strange arc for John on “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier.” He was originally presented as idealistic and excited to help people, but he so quickly went from that to being a tool without much of a devolution. He just was a good guy, and then he was yelling at the real superheroes for being so good at their jobs that they’re making him look bad. Also Read: Emily VanCamp Breaks Down 'Much More Cynical' Sharon Carter on 'Falcon and the Winter Soldier' But I like where we ended up. I like seeing this trash person angrily beat down bad guys because he just hates them so much, and then tarnish the uniform and the shield by beating a guy to death in front of a crowd of people to get revenge for his injured or dead partner. It’s disgusting and it felt so incredibly wrong, and it was also an absolute thrill to watch. I’d love for “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier” to go all the way with this deconstruction by having Captain America just become a cartoonishly evil, one-note villain. Normally the MCU likes to humanize its bad guys too much to do that, but we just got Agatha on “WandaVision” taking that exact path. Agatha had no layers whatsoever and had no motivation other than to get more power. Why not do the same with New Cap? Read original story Incel Captain America Is So Perfect At TheWrap
“SNL” is back, now deep into its 46th season. The most recent new episode, which aired on April 3, was hosted by “Judas and the Black Messiah” star Daniel Kaluuya, with St. Vincent as the musical guest. The cold open sketch brought back a bit from earlier in the season in which Chloe Fineman’s Britney Spears has a talk show. Among her guests this time: Pete Davidson as Matt Gaetz, Chris Redd as Lil Nas X, Mikey Day as god and Kate McKinnon as Pepe LePew. Spoiler: Lil Nas X gave god a lap dance. It looks like, for now, cast member Alex Moffat will continue to play Joe Biden, as he played the role for a second time this past week in a sketch that also saw Martin Short make a surprise appearance as Kamala Harris’ husband, Doug Emhoff. Though Moffat’s reception has not been enthusiastic thus far, it’s likely that “SNL” will stick with him in the role for the rest of the season. Also Read: 'SNL': Lil Nas X Gives God an Easter Lap Dance (Video) This week, on Saturday, April 10, there WILL be a new episode of “SNL.” This week’s episode will be hosted by “A Promising Young Woman” star Carey Mulligan, with Kid Cudi as the musical guest. It’ll be Mulligan’s first time as host. And, as hard as it is to believe, it will also be Kid Cudi’s first time as the “SNL” musical guest. Though he did previously make an uncredited appearance during a Kanye West set on the show back in season 44. You can be pretty sure this season of “SNL” be pretty political for the full stretch. While it’s not an election year anymore, somehow the tense political situation in the U.S. managed to ramp up from the fever pitch early in 2021. And, well, it’s tough to pass up having Aidy Bryant play Ted Cruz as often as possible, which the show keeps doing. Perhaps the biggest splash of season 46 was the addition of Jim Carrey as the show’s resident celebrity Joe Biden during the election cycle. But Carrey dropped out of the role after Trump lost, and “SNL” has now twice had Moffat play the part. Moffat’s Biden has been met with a pretty tepid response both from the studio audience and viewers at home, but that’s to be expected after only big stars have played Biden on SNL for years. It’s been a strange transition out of the Trump era for “SNL,” which has adopted a softer tone the last couple months. For example, the show has done three separate COVID-19 game show sketches in 2021, two of which were cold open sketches. And Moffat’s Biden has only made a single appearance since the real Biden was inaugurated in January. Read original story Is There a New ‘SNL’ Episode Airing This Week? At TheWrap
Texas Republican congressman Dan Crenshaw announced Saturday that he will be “pretty much off the grid for the next few weeks” as he recovers from emergency eye surgery. Crenshaw, a former Navy SEAL who lost his right eye and sustained significant damage to his left eye after being hit by an IED explosion in Afghanistan in 2012, explained in his statement on Thursday that after his vision was obscured by “dark, blurry spots,” his ophthalmologist confirmed that his left eye retina was detaching. Crenshaw said that the injuries he sustained in 2012 “caused a cataract, excessive tissue damage, and extensive damage to my retina. It was always a possibility that the effects of the damage to my retina would resurface, and it appears that is exactly what has happened.” Also Read: GOP Rep Crenshaw Schooled by MSNBC's Mehdi Hasan on Immigration Numbers (Video) Crenshaw underwent emergency surgery on Friday at Michael E.

The representative, a frequent Fox News guest who is very active on social media, said he “likely will not be conducting interviews and likely will not be posting on social media except to give updates on my health and recovery.” See Crenshaw’s full statement below or click here. pic.twitter.com/9laF7Gjfvo — Dan Crenshaw (@DanCrenshawTX) April 10, 2021 Read original story GOP Rep Dan Crenshaw Says He’ll Be ‘Off the Grid’ to Recover From Emergency Eye Surgery At TheWrap

We think there's a lot to love about yogurt, from the calcium, probiotics, and high protein to the sheer ease of grabbing a scoop when you need something healthy, filling, and fast. One ongoing concern about dairy yogurt is that like some other products made from animal milk, it had been thought to cause inflammation in the body, which can lead to some infections, diseases, and disorders. Now, a study out of Israel has discovered that the probiotics in yogurt products may actually reduce inflammation to make the immune system stronger—including against COVID-19.There are certainly plenty of people who are sensitive to dairy or who have to avoid it entirely. For others, who can eat and enjoy it, there's been some debate in parts of the medical community in recent years. Some professionals have followed the debate in some literature about whether consuming dairy can lead to a wide range of ails that include arthritis to depression, and even acne and more.RELATED: 7 Healthiest Foods To Eat Right NowWhile there are studies that have found reason in some of this, it's no good for those who look to a food like yogurt for its role as a healthy, reliable diet staple. For that audience, now there's exciting news: two researchers who conducted a university study in Israel have found that molecules from the probiotics in kefir (a liquid drink that's very similar to yogurt) significantly reduced the contagion level of the agent that causes cholera.In a follow-up study, the scientists found that the same molecules also acted as an anti-inflammatory force against some viral disease models. This included the "cytokine storm," which is the immune response that has been discovered as a leading cause of death in COVID-19 patients. "Our research illuminates for the first time a mechanism by which milk fermented probiotics can protect against pathogenic infections and aid the immune system," said Professor Raz Jelinek, the Vice President of Research and Development at Ben Gurion University at the Negev.This is likely to lead to more research for greater understanding… but in the meantime, this study's findings could be one more reason to grab a spoon.

Nikki Grahame, a former reality TV star and “Big Brother U.K.” contestant, has died at the age of 38 after a long and public battle with anorexia. According to a GoFundMe page set up in Grahame’s name earlier this year after she was hospitalized due to her condition, Grahame died early Friday. No other details were provided. “It breaks our hearts to know that someone who is so precious was taken from us at such a young age,” the page reads. “Nikki not only touched the lives of millions of people, but also her friends and family who will miss her immensely.” Also Read: 'Big Brother 22' Winner Revealed in Season Finale Grahame first appeared on the seventh season of “Big Brother U.K.” in 2006, later returning for “Ultimate Big Brother” and “Big Brother Canada.” She also starred in her own “Simple Life”-esque reality series, “Princess Nikki,” which ran on E4 for six episodes in 2006. Grahame has spoken publicly about her battle with anorexia nervosa in the past, including authoring two books on the subject, “Dying To Be Thin” in 2009 and “Fragile” in 2012. She first developed the eating disorder as a child and was hospitalized multiple times throughout her youth.
