Alison attended the Los Angeles Confidential “Awards Issue” celebration hosted by Alison with the two other cover stars Milo Ventimiglia and Ana de Armas (January 13). The event was held at The Jeremy Hotel in West Hollywood, California, and Alison was joined by her GLOW co-star Betty Gilpin.
THE GUARDIAN – Her big break came as Trudy in Mad Men where she was ‘silent and professional’. Then it was ‘fart jokes’ in Community and wrestling in Glow. But none of that prepared Alison Brie for a call from Spielberg and a film role opposite Meryl Streep
‘Hello, it’s Ali!’ comes a text message from an unknown number. “I’m running late but I’ll see you soon!” Los Angeles born actor Alison Brie’s Twitter bio reads “Always late… but worth the wait.” It’s true – both when we meet and in terms of her acting career. Though 34-year-old Brie feels like she’s been playing catch-up her entire career, she’s now a Golden Globe- nominated actor – for her role as a female wrestler in Glow – has a starring role in James Franco’s The Disaster Artist and will soon appear in Spielberg’s new drama The Post.
As a kid she knew she was going to be an actor. Growing up in Pasadena, she wasn’t part of the central Hollywood set – “Although the girl who played the daughter in Beethoven did go to my high school.” She would act in local theatre shows, but decided against going to one of LA’s prestigious performing arts high schools, opting instead for a normal teenage experience with her friends.
“I told my mom recently,” she says, “that I thought it was cool she didn’t make me become a child actor. She said: ‘Well we tried…’ I had such integrity at a young age.”
Alison attended the 23rd Annual Critics’ Choice Awards held at Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, California on Thursday (January 11). Alison looked beautiful (as always!) and wore a Roberto Cavalli dress.

EW – On Wednesday, the SAG Awards announced their nominees for this year’s best performances in film and television, kicking the Oscar race into high gear.
Olivia Munn and Niecy Nash announced the nominations from the Pacific Design Center in West Hollywood on Wednesday morning. In the film categories, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri led with a total of four nominations, including Frances McDormand, Sam Rockwell, and Woody Harrelson, as well as a nomination for best ensemble. Award season favorites like Lady Bird, Get Out, and The Shape of Water also picked up multiple nominations.
The SAG Awards also recognized rom-com favorite The Big Sick, which was surprisingly shut out of Monday’s Golden Globe nominations. Holly Hunter scored a best supporting actress nod, while the film was also nominated for best ensemble.
Historically, the SAG Awards are the awards show that best predict the eventual Oscar nominees — especially because SAG voters most closely overlap with Academy voters. There will always be some upsets, but as a general rule, SAG’s picks for actor, actress, supporting actor, and supporting actress are a good indication of who will eventually get nominated for an Academy Award. The award for best ensemble — SAG’s version of best picture — can also help a film gain Oscar buzz: Last year, four of SAG’s five best ensemble nominees all went on to score an Oscar nom for best picture.
