    Bonus: The making of 'Nomadland' with director Chloé Zhao

    The Oscars are on the horizon and though it’s been a strange year for the movie industry, the race for the golden statue is nothing short of historic. Notably, there is not one but two women nominated for best director: Emerald Fennell, for “Promising Young Woman,” starring Carrie Mulligan, and Chloé Zhao for “Nomadland,” starring Frances McDormand. “Nomadland” was also written by Zhao who based her screenplay on the non-fictional book, “Nomadland: Surviving America in the 21st Century,” by journalist Jessica Bruder. Frances McDormand’s Fern — a fictionalized amalgam of people in Bruder’s book — is a woman living out of her van, traveling the country working seasonal jobs and meeting a community of like-minded itinerant Americans along the way. On this special bonus episode of Next Question with Katie Couric, Katie gets to go behind the scenes of this extraordinary, beautiful and strangely prescient film in a roundtable discussion with the director Chloé Zhao as well as three producers, Peter Spears, Mollye Asher and Dan Janvey. Stream “Nomadland” on Hulu.

    Kathryn Hahn on the Marvel madness, her comedy heroines, and getting her juiciest roles post-40

    Kathryn Hahn is an absolute scream, as you may have guessed from watching her in the hit Marvel TV show “WandaVision.” Or maybe you first took notice of her comedy chops in early aught blockbusters like “Step Brothers.” Or perhaps, you knew along given her propensity for all-too-relatable characters in indie films like “Private Life.” However you’ve come across Kathryn Hahn, there’s no denying the actor, at 47, has hit her stride. On this episode of Next Question with Katie Couric, Katie digs into Kathryn’s background to find out what makes her comedy’s secret weapon. They talk about her comedy role models, the unfortunate prosthetic pregnancy stage early in her career, and why the parts she’s earning now, at 47, are the best and most exciting of her career. Watch Kathryn on Wandavision on Disney+.

    Bonus: Colon cancer awareness: ‘I should have gotten my colonoscopy, that’s the lesson’

    Bonus: Colon cancer awareness: ‘I should have gotten my colonoscopy, that’s the lesson’

    On this special episode of Next Question with Katie Couric, Katie dives into a subject very close to her heart: colon cancer awareness. After Katie’s first husband Jay died 23 years ago, she’s been a fierce advocate for early screening and regular colonoscopies — she even, you might recall, got one on live TV. There’s a reason Katie goes to such lengths: early screening saves lives. In this episode, we first hear from a stage 4 cancer fighter who is living that lesson. Then, Dr. Edith Mitchell of the Sidney Kimmel Medical College at Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia, helps to answer the question, why are Black people, Black men in particular, so much more likely to get colon cancer and also die from it (hint: it’s systemic). Finally, Katie talks with oncologist Dr. Charlie Fuchs about the state of colon cancer detection and treatment today.

    Kate Winslet on the media bullies, Hollywood’s new sisterhood and her own reckoning with Woody Allen

    Kate Winslet on the media bullies, Hollywood’s new sisterhood and her own reckoning with Woody Allen

    Twenty-six years ago, Kate Winslet sat down for her first nationally televised, American interview with none other than Katie Couric when she was co-host of the Today Show. Kate was promoting “Sense and Sensibility” and was a nervous wreck. “I was very self-conscious,” she reminisces with Katie. “I remember being physically and just very self conscious in those days.” Katie, who was pregnant at the time, admits to feeling endeared to the 20-year-old star, “It was one of my favorite interviews,” she tells Kate, “I felt very protective of you because you were so young.” In this new, wide sweeping interview, Katie and Kate reunite to talk about her pandemic life, her new murder mystery series on HBO, the delightful audio book she narrated, the upcoming Avatar films, and the toxic business of Hollywood, from Woody to Harvey, and what has and hasn’t changed.

Love Stanley Tucci!

Great interview with Stanley Tucci- he is such a fascinating actor and I love the new CNN show. We all need more Stanley Tucci !

Hacky and Partisan

Still taking about Trump six months after the election. Zzzz. Karen-level view of the world and how it SHOULD be. Lives in a bubble of liberal media types and it shows both in her guests and priorities. Has the gall to say she “took some diversions” in 2020 (mostly to beat up on Republicans and working class rural Americans) but now wants to get back to presumably “softer” subjects now that her guy is in office. Boring, predictable, vanilla.
