DEADLINE – Deadline’s Contenders Television, which just wrapped its nine-hour telecast, broke ground in multiple ways. An invitation-only event held annually at a large theater, it went virtual this year because of the coronavirus pandemic. The live-streamed presentation also set a record with its largest roster of participants ever, 44 shows from 22 studios and networks.

You can explore Deadline’s extensive panel-by-panel print coverage here.

In another first, Deadline on Monday will launch a Contenders Television streaming site featuring all the panel videos, which were pre-recorded with talent video-conferencing from locations around the world — from the Australian Bush (Russell Crowe), Rome (Willem Dafoe), and London (Cate Blanchett, among others) to the East Coast, the West Coast and all points between.

The impressive talent roster also includes Elizabeth Banks, Patrick Stewart, Anthony Anderson, Ramy Youssef, Trevor Noah, Jim Parsons, Jason Bateman, Laura Linney, Julia Garner, Steve Carell, John Malkovich, David Harbour, Jerrika Hinton, Bob Odenkirk, Rhea Seehorn, Hailee Steinfeld, Lucy Liu, Christina Applegate, Linda Cardellini, Derek Waters, Pedro Pascal, Claire Danes, Forest Whitaker, Rita Moreno, Will Arnett, Rose Byrne, Uzo Aduba, Margo Martindale, Sarah Paulson, Robin Thede, Kathryn Hahn, Elle Fanning, Nicholas Hoult, Niecy Nash, Pamela Adlon, Marcia Gay Harden, 50 Cent, Monica Raymund, Daniel Levy and Annie Murphy as well as a slew of A-list creators, show-runners and producers.

They were interviewed by Deadline writers Pete Hammond, Dominic Patten, Peter White, Antonia Blyth, Dino-Ray Ramos, Anthony D’Alessandro, Amanda N’Duka and Joe Utichi, the latter of whom also hosted the virtual event.

Participating networks and studios include ABC Entertainment, Amazon Prime Video, AMC Networks, Apple TV+, Wiip, CBS All Access, CBS Television Studios, Comedy Central, Disney+, Disney Television Studios, Fox Entertainment, Freeform, FX, HBO, Hulu, Lifetime, Nat Geo, Netflix, Pop TV, Showtime, Sony Pictures Television and Starz.

This year, Deadline’s Contenders Television is making a donation, which is being matched by our parent company PMC, to the Los Angeles chapter of Black Lives Matter, with a focus on the organization’s youth/arts programs; and to Campaign Zero, a national organization dedicated to police reform.

While the format has changed, Deadline Contenders Television’s goal has remained the same — we aim to make this a kind of one-stop shopping for industry voters who can sit down and get a taste of what will eventually appear on their awards ballots this Emmy season. The idea, as it has always been, is to provide a blueprint of the season that will serve as a catalyst for voters as they wade through the infinite numbers of TV achievements placed before them.

Sponsors and partners of today’s live-streamed Contenders Television event included Eyepetizer, Michter’s, Crop Organic Vodka and The Four Seasons Maui.

To those who tuned in today, thank you. To everyone who missed a panel or wants to see some of them again, check Deadline.com on Monday morning. Once the streaming site goes live, panel videos will also be added to each of the stories.

Elle did a new photoshoot with Paley Fairman for “Who What Wear” to promote her latest movie “Teen Spirit“. Be sure to check out the gallery for the newest photos!

“I have always wanted to be able to sing in a film because growing up I sang at school all the time,” she says. “Even with this part, I was not on the radar for them to even cast me… I saw a press release about the film and that’s when I was like, ‘What is this movie about a girl who tries out for a singing competition?’ So I was the one who had to kind of chase after it and Max [Mingehlla] then was like, ‘Okay. We’ll send you the script.’” – Read more

Elle did a new wonderful photoshoot with Gizelle Hernandez for Billboard to promote “Teen Spirit”. She looks stunning in all the photos so be sure to check them out!

“People know me mostly from Maleficent,” she says, referring to the 2014 Disney film co-starring Angelina Jolie, though she arguably has distinguished herself more in indie fare like Somewhere and 20th Century Women. “Max never thought of me.” Her team reached out to Minghella with Fanning’s sparse musical résumé: In 2016, she had joined her friend, the neo-folk musician Woodkid, onstage at the Montreux Jazz Festival in Switzerland for a rendition of his “Never Let You Down.”
Music producer Marius de Vries, who worked with Emma Stone on La La Land, would later point out to Fanning all the things she did wrong during that performance. “He was like, ‘Look at this posture,’” she recalls, laughing. “I’m totally concave and, like, scared.” Nonetheless, after meeting with him and Minghella, she scored the part. “Her voice was very charismatic,” says de Vries. (“If there were 100 people in the room, Marius was my one,” jokes Fanning, quoting Lady Gaga’s infamous A Star Is Born press tour soundbite.) But, he adds, “we both realized we had a lot of work to do if she was going to sing this repertoire.” – READ MORE

Elle attended the Third Annual ‘InStyle Awards’ in Los Angeles yesterday where she was honored with the Breakthrough Style Star award.

On Monday night inside Los Angeles’s Getty Center, Elle Fanning took the stage to accept the award for Breakthrough Style Star. Clearly, she’s incredibly deserving of the award considering she arrived in a fantastically sexy Versace dress—straight off the spring 2018 runway—covered with Marilyn Monroe’s face on it.
And while her red carpet look was unarguably memorable, it was her speech that won us over. On stage, Fanning thanked her stylist, Samantha McMillen, along with her mom. But she also thanked one surprising character: Sesame Street’s Big Bird.
“Fashion has been something that’s just always inspired me and been such a big kind of creative outlet for me to be able to tell my story, tell my personality through what I want to wear that day,” Fanning began.
She proceeded to tell the tale of a time in the 7th grade when she chose to experiment with daring fashion. “We had these things called Free Dress Fridays at our school, ‘cause we went to a school that had uniforms,” she told the A-list crowd. “I remember picking out, laying out my clothes down to, like, the right color socks that you would never see, but I knew they were there.”
So what outfit has she never forgotten?
“I bought this Opening Ceremony top that was light pink and it had Big Bird on it, like little Big Birds all over the top, and I was like, ‘Oh, I’m gonna wear this with these bell-bottom jeans and these platform shoes,” she continued.
“I went to school and I was brutally made fun of,” she said, explaining that she considered changing her style after her classmates didn’t approve. The results? She said changing her look didn’t make her feel like herself, so she hasn’t since, crediting the evening’s Versace number as a risk-taking dress.
“I pushed it. We’re going for it! Thank you for that,” she said. “Now, thanks to Big Bird and to Samantha and to InStyle and my mom…[this] is dedicated to all those high school kids.”
Talk about coming full circle.INSTYLE
