Women will lead a SAG Awards show unlike any in its history
LOS ANGELES (AP) — The Screen Actors Guild Awards will make their mark on this year's Oscars race on Sunday, but it will be the treatment of women in Hollywood and beyond that will remain at the forefront. The show will feature a roster of almost all female presenters, Kristen Bell as its inaugural host, and an opening that will feature only actresses speaking about their craft. Producers say the approach was inspired by last year's Women's March, but the show arrives at a time when some of the industry's biggest names are leading the Time's Up and Me Too movements to address gender inequality, sexual misconduct, pay disparities and other issues.

Dorothy Malone obituary
Hollywood star who won an Oscar for her role in Written on the Wind and appeared in the TV soap Peyton Place

Although the Hollywood star Dorothy Malone, who has died aged 93, appeared in only a handful of works of distinction in a fairly lengthy career, they were good enough to secure her place in film history. On those occasions when the role permitted, most notably in two flamboyant melodramas directed by Douglas Sirk, Written on the Wind (1956) and The Tarnished Angels (1957), Malone revealed what a talented performer she could be, one capable of projecting a potent blend of cynicism, sexuality and intelligence. However, she was probably most familiar to the general public as Constance MacKenzie in Peyton Place (1964-68), one of the first primetime TV soap operas.

In Written on the Wind, Malone played Marylee, an oil heiress, sister of an alcoholic playboy Kyle Hadley (Robert Stack). She’s in love with Kyle’s best friend Mitch (Rock Hudson), but he’s in love with Kyle’s pregnant wife Lucy (Lauren Bacall). Jealous, Marylee convinces Kyle that Lucy’s baby really belongs to Mitch. Her wild erotic dance to a loud mambo beat, intercut with scenes of her father’s fatal heart attack, is one of the great sequences of 1950s Hollywood melodrama. “It was a miracle that I got her to do the scene,” Sirk recalled. “She was very prudish ... I even had to watch my language. If I said, ‘This scene needs more balls’, she’d walk off the set.” Malone, upstaging even Bacall, won the best supporting actress Oscar.

Nur per Helikopter erreichbar: 9000 Urlauber in Zermatt eingeschneit
Der Wintersportort Zermatt in der Schweiz ist nach ergiebigen Schneefällen erneut weitgehend von der Außenwelt abgeschnitten. Der Zugverkehr sei wegen der Lawinengefahr eingestellt worden, sagte ein Sprecher der Matterhorn Gotthard Bahn am Sonntag. Bis wann die Sperre der Bahnlinie und auch der Zufahrtsstraße dauern werde, sei noch unklar. „Es sind neue Schneefälle angekündigt.“ Die einzige Möglichkeit, den Ort zu verlassen, bestand zwischenzeitlich per Helikopter. Betroffen von der Sperre sind nach Angaben des Tourismusbüros unter anderem die 9000 Gäste im Ort.
