HFPA announced earlier today its Golden Globes nomination, and Ryan Murphy’s groundbreaking FX series — which features five transgender actresses as series regulars — was nominated for best drama TV series, while star Billy Porter received an acting nomination.
Pose is breaking ground as the first TV series with a mostly trans cast — including leading ladies Mj Rodriguez, Dominique Jackson, Indya Moore, Angelica Ross and Hailie Sahar — to be nominated in any category for the Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s annual ceremony.
Though none of the trans women in the cast were nominated in acting categories, star Billy Porter — who plays Pray Tell, Pose’s exuberant ballroom emcee and fashion designer — was nominated for best actor in a drama TV series. He stands alongside fellow nominees Matthew Rhys (The Americans), Richard Madden (Bodyguard), Stephan James (Homecoming) and Jason Bateman (Ozark).
The 76th annual Golden Globe Awards will air live Jan. 6 at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT on NBC.
Variety – Kate Mara and Simon Pegg are in negotiations to star in the independent thriller “Inheritance” with British director Vaughn Stein attached.
The film explores what happens when the patriarch of a wealthy and powerful family suddenly passes away, leaving his wife and daughter with a shocking secret inheritance that threatens to unravel and destroy their lives.
Highland Film Group launched foreign sales at the American Film Market in Santa Monica, Calif. this week. UTA and Highland Film Group are co-repping the U.S. rights.
Kate attended, alongside her sister Rooney, the Animal Equality’s Inspiring Global Action Gala that took place last night at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, Calif. Rooney & Kate are both wearing outfits by Hiraeth.
Hello! Our gallery was (finally!) updated with pictures of Kate Mara attending earlier this month in Paris the Miu Miu Fashion Show. Check it:
Kate Mara is speaking out in support of NFL players who choose to kneel during the national anthem.
“I believe everybody has a constitutional right to stand, or kneel or sit during the national anthem, so, I stand by the player’s decision whatever that might be.”
While Mara has made a name for herself as an actress in both television and film, her family also happens to co-own the Pittsburgh Steelers and the New York Giants. She is a great-granddaughter of both Giants founder Tim Mara and Steelers founder Art Rooney, Sr.
Her words of support for players protesting during the anthem come on the heels of her uncle and Giants co-owner John Mara’s involvement in helping shape the NFL’s controversial new policy to fine teams if their players kneel during the anthem.
“I think certainly we all hope that our players stand for the anthem this year,” John Mara said during an interview in May with Sirius XM Radio. “I think it’s the right thing to do.”
Controversy aside, Kate Mara was on hand on Thursday night at New York City’s the Blond for AT&T’s party to celebrate the 25th season of NFL Sunday Ticket on DirecTV.
“It reminds me of my childhood,” she said. “Going to a Giants game in New York with my family on a Sunday to me that is the normal way and the most comforting way because you’re surrounded by family, and love, and a lot of passion.”
These days, she enjoys watching games at home with her husband, actor Jamie Bell. “Growing up it was like chicken fingers and fries in the family box. But I am a vegan, so now it’s more like water and fries.”
Mara co-starred on “House of Cards” and earned an Emmy nomination for her work as a journalist who was killed by Frank Underwood (Kevin Spacey) after they had an affair. She says she hasn’t watched the Netflix series much since then, but will now that Robin Wright is leading the show after Spacey was fired over accusations by several people of sexual harassment and assault.
“I love Robin Wright so much,” said Mara, who will next headline FX’s limited series adaptation of the indie film “A Teacher.” “I really cannot wait to see what her character does and what she does with the role this season. I am watching because I just love her and I am excited that it is her time.”
Guests at the party also included former Giants players Victor Cruz and Justin Tuck as well as “Mayans M.C.” actor Gino Vento and Bridget Kelly of “Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood.”
Kate attended last night the 2018 Sunday Ticket Season Kickoff Party at The Blond in New York City. We have some pictures added in our gallery.
FX is developing A Teacher, a limited series based on Hannah Fidell’s buzzy Sundance feature, with Kate Mara attached to star and executive produce, Deadline is reporting.
Fidell, who wrote, directed and produced the 2013 film, will pen the adaptation, direct and executive produce the potential series.
Timelier than ever in the #metoo era, A Teacher is an exploration of consent, abuse of power, victimhood and the inevitable consequences that occur throughout an entire community after a female high school teacher (Mara) and her student are caught having an affair. FX Productions is the studio.
Mara will play the role played in the film by Lindsay Burdge. You can watch a trailer for the film, which co-starred Will Brittain, below.
Earlier today Kate attended in New York at the Grand Central Station the Dawn’s Wildlife Initiative.
For over 40 years, Dawn dish soap has been an important part of rescuing and releasing more than 75,000 wild animals affected by oil pollution. We’ve donated thousands of bottles to wildlife rescue workers at The Marine Mammal Center and International Bird Rescue. (dawn-dish.com)

Kate posed for international animal rights nonprofit Animal Equality‘s Their Voice Summer 2018 issue, and also opened up about her thoughts on equality, Pose, and veganism.
On what inspired her to become vegan: “I have always been an animal lover and was a vegetarian for a while off and on. When I read my friend Kimberly Snyder’s book called The Beauty Detox Solution it solidified my belief that we aren’t meant to consume animal products (whether you’re an animal lover, activist or not). Learning about the process that our bodies go through to digest meat and dairy was eye opening for me. My love of animals and animal activism has grown over the years so it was a no brainer for me to become a vegan. It took me a little while to fully give up cheese; otherwise, it was easy.”
On Pose: “Pose is a show that features the largest LGBTQ cast and crew, on and off camera. It explores the ballroom culture in NYC in the 1980’s. I’m excited to be a part of a series that will educate people about an amazing community that has been marginalized for so long. It’s funny and heartbreaking, but at the end of the day the show is about family and how no matter where you come from or what gender you may be, we all just want to belong to something and feel love.”
On advocating for animal and human rights: “I feel it is my moral obligation to give a voice to animals because they cannot fight for themselves. They do not choose to be ripped from their families or trapped in cages their entire lives. If we aren’t trying to help others (whether human or animal) and give back in some way, then we shouldn’t expect the world to be a very nice place to live.”
