Michelle Williams, Ryan Gosling don’t put dating rumors to rest

HollywoodNews.com: Michelle Williams and Ryan Gosling seem to be fueling dating rumors as they continue to promote their film ‘Blue Valentine.’
While it has been questioned for some time, the two are not denying anything, states People. The two were interviewed on ‘ABC News Nightline’ by Cynthia McFadden and when they were asked if anything romantic was going on, they both smiled and ignored the question.
Williams eventually shook her head “no,” but McFadden wasn’t buying it. And many others probably don’t believe it as these two seem a little more than friendly as they promote their film.

Kyra Sedgwick hoping to win an Emmy this year

By Marilyn Beck and Stacy Jenel Smith
HollywoodNews.com: Emmy nominations ballots are due in today (6/21), and “The Closer” star Kyra Sedgwick’s name is certainly among those being bandied about by awards pundits. For instance, ABC News’ website prominently featured Reuters scribe Janelle Tipton’s commentary calling it “a crime” that Sedgwick hasn’t won an Emmy for her portrayal of Deputy Chief Brenda Leigh Johnson as yet — despite having been nominated each of the seasons the hit TNT series has been on.
“I love that, that’s so nice,” responds a smiling Kyra. “It’s really amazing to get nominated — and the fact the show has had consistent nominations is really, really great acknowledgement for all the hard work, and we’re so appreciative of that. But I have to admit, it would be nice to hear my name called.”
A factor in her favor is that Season 5 of “The Closer” was “really an emotional season, starting with the death of Brenda’s cat – this creature that she didn’t want, that showed up on her doorstep, that she took in begrudgingly, but then connected to despite herself. There was her Dad having a heart attack, her relationship with her niece, Charlie, the death of the boy in the second to last episode, ‘Maternal Instincts.’ Every time she let someone into her heart, something happened and it’s devastating.”
Now Kyra is six episodes into shooting of Season 6, which debuts July 12.

Angelina Jolie gets flack over Cleopatra role

HollywoodNews.com: Angelina Jolie as Cleopatra? Not to some groups.
While Scott Rudin has championed the actress for the role in the film version of Stacy Schiff’s book “Cleopatra: A Life,” members of the African American community think it’s a crazy choice according to the New York Daily News.
“I don’t care how full Angelina Jolie’s lips are, how many African children she adopts, or how bronzed her skin will become for the film,” Shirea Carroll wrote in an editorial for Essence.com.
“I firmly believe this role should have gone to a Black woman…What’s next? A biopic on Sojourner Truth played by Betty White?”
Apparently, this is the second time that Jolie has found herself criticized over her portrayal of a character of another race. In 2007, she was lambasted for playing Daniel Pearl’s wife Marian who is of African origin.
Jolie defended herself in Time Magazine saying “It is not about the color of your skin. It is about who you are.”
Historians cannot verify or certify Cleopatra’s appearance. She was of Egyptian origin.
Per ABC News, Egyptologists claim that the seductress of Roman Emperor Julius Caesar and general Mark Anthony was actually “short, fat and plain.”
