The Screen Actors Guild Awards nominations were announced on Wednesday morning. Alison has been nominated for her work in GLOW for the Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Comedy Series award. GLOW was also nominated for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series and Outstanding Action Performance by a Stunt Ensemble in a Comedy or Drama Series. Congratulations to Alison and the GLOW cast and crew!
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.

The actress is ascending into true stardom
NYLON – Name a mediocre movie, like any mediocre movie, from the mid-’80s to early-’90s—Look Who’s Talking, Defending Your Life, Just One of the Guys, um, Look Who’s Talking Too—and Alison Brie has not only seen it, but can quote from it extensively, describe its most arcane plot details, and even sing—full voice, at the drop of a hat—its Cher-helmed end credits song.
Exciting news BoJack fans! Netflix has renewed BoJack Horseman for season 5.
VARIETY – “BoJack Horseman” has been renewed for Season 5, Netflix announced Thursday.
The announcement came in the form of a video posted to the show’s social media channels, which show a “clingy netflix exec” texting BoJack to share the news of the renewal. Watch the video below.
The animated series stars Will Arnett as BoJack, the failed legendary ‘90s sitcom star from the favorite family sitcom “Horsin’ Around,” who has been trying to find his way through a muddle of self-loathing, whisky and failed relationships.
Now, in the presence of his human sidekick Todd (Aaron Paul) and his feline agent and ex-paramour Princess Carolyn (Amy Sedaris), BoJack is primed for his comeback. The series also features the voices of Paul F. Tompkins and Alison Brie.
Season 4 launched globally on Netflix on Sept. 8 and received widespread critical acclaim. The season currently has a 96% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes. The season saw BoJack coming to grips with his identity after disappearing at the end of Season 3, while his friend Mr. Peanutbutter (Tompkins) makes a bid for governor. Todd, meanwhile, explores his life without BoJack, and comes to terms with the fact that he is asexual.
The series was created by Raphael Bob-Waksberg, who also executive produces. Steven A. Cohen, Noel Bright, Arnett, and Paul also serve as executive producers. BoJack was designed by graphic artist Lisa Hanawalt and animated by LA-based ShadowMachine. The show is a Tornante Production, brought to life by Michael Eisner’s The Tornante Company.
Exciting news! GLOW has been renewed by Netflix for season two!
‘GLOW’: Netflix Renews Women’s Wrestling Comedy For Season 2
Netflix has another keeper from Jenji Kohan on its hands. The Internet network has renewed new 1980s wrestling comedy GLOW for a 10-episode second season.
Kohan, who is behind one of Netflix’s signature series, Orange Is the New Black, executive produces GLOW, created/executive produced by Liz Flahive and Carly Mensch.
Like Orange Is the New Black, GLOW, inspired by the short-lived but beloved show from the ’80s, has been a critical and pop culture hit. Set in 1985 Los Angeles, it follows Ruth Wilder (Alison Brie), a struggling out-of-work actress as she auditions for, trains and eventually makes TV’s first women’s wrestling show.
Flahive and Mensch, who serve as showrunners, executive produce with Kohan and Tara Herrmann.
GLOW is the fourth Netflix comedy to debut in 2017 and get a second-season renewal. It joins One Day at a Time, Santa Clarita Diet and Dear White People. One 2017 Netflix comedy has been canceled, Girlboss.
Exciting news for BoJack Horseman fans! Netflix has announced that BoJack Horseman season four will premiere September 8th. The announcement was first made on BoJack Horseman‘s official Twitter account, see below.
Alison voices Diane Nguyen, a human ghostwriter of BoJack’s autobiography.

On Dolly Parton, Binge-Watching, And Where To Eat In Paris
Alison Brie stole our hearts on Community, and we’re pretty sure she’s about to do it again on GLOW (premiering June 23 on Netflix). To say we’re excited to watch her new show would be an understatement. Female wrestlers in 80’s clothes and makeup? Yes, please. We sat down with Brie to talk about everything from the best restaurants in Paris, which five guests she’d have at her dream dinner, and of course the funniest thing that happened on the set. Read below for the full interview; it’s the perfect read to kick of your week…
From start to finish, what would be your ideal food day?
I’d start my day with my usual apple with almond butter and white tea, then have a post-workout protein shake made with protein powder, spinach, and a scoop of coconut oil. Then I’d head to Go Get Em Tiger in LA for midday soft scrambled eggs with avocado and toast. For dinner, I’d have a hearty quinoa bowl with pan-seared salmon and a mix of roasted veggies topped with plenty of Sriracha, home-cooked by me.
Steven Spielberg’s Pentagon Papers Movie, Now ‘The Papers’, Adds Cast
Alison Brie, Carrie Coon, David Cross, Bruce Greenwood, Pat Healy, Tracy Letts, Bob Odenkirk, Sarah Paulson, Jesse Plemons, Matthew Rhys, Michael Stuhlbarg, Bradley Whitford and Zach Woods have joined the cast for The Papers, the Steven Spielberg-directed movie about the Washington Post’s role in exposing the Pentagon Papers in 1971, and how the Post’s editor Ben Bradlee and publisher Kay Graham joined the New York Times in challenging the federal government over their right to publish them.
Production kicked off last week in New York on the fast track after Tom Hanks and Meryl Streep came aboard to play Bradlee and Kay Graham, and then Spielberg joined to direct Liz Hannah and Josh Singer’s script. Spielberg is producing with Amy Pascal and Kristie Macosko; Pascal’s Pascal Pictures originally acquired Hannah’s Black List script.
The movie will bow December 22 in select theaters in the heat of Oscar season and is set to go wide January 12.
Congratulations to Alison and Dave! Reps confirmed to People that they are now married.
Dave Franco and Alison Brie have officially tied the knot.
Reps for the actors confirm exclusively to PEOPLE that the couple is now married.
Franco, 31, and Brie, 34, — who met at the 2011 Mardi Gras parade in New Orleans — announced their engagement in August 2015 after more than three years of dating.
PEOPLE exclusively confirmed that the actress’ one-of-a-kind engagement ring was the work of Southern California jewelry designer Irene Neuwirth. It’s a rose gold sparkler set with a rose-cut diamond and a diamond pave.
“I’m not very bridal, instinctually,” Brie, who next stars in Netflix’s GLOW out June 23rd, explained to Yahoo! Style last February. “Marriage never really interested me, I guess because I was very focused on my work. I wasn’t sure if I really saw the point to it. I bought a dress on Net-a-Porter, and I’m like, ‘Maybe I’ll wear that.’”
As for what changed her mind about marriage, she explained: “I just met that person that I was like, ‘Well, I’m really in love with you and would like to grow old with you.’ I actually think it’s much more romantic when two people are like, ‘Oh, I could go either way on marriage, but I want to marry you.’”
Exciting news for Community fans! Alison will guest star as herself on Ken Jeong’s show, Dr. Ken. Not exactly a Community reunion, however, it is always great having the cast reunite.
The Community reunion on the season finale of ABC’s Dr. Ken is growing.
Alison Brie is the latest Community alum set to guest star on the season finale, joining Dr. Ken star and former Community regular Ken Jeong and Community creator Dan Harmon.
In Dr. Ken’s Season 2 finale titled “Ken’s Big Audition,” Brie will guest star as herself, an actress just cast as a series regular on Harmon’s new sitcom. Alison reads with Ken (Jeong) during his audition, and is soon uncomfortable with Ken’s bold acting choices. As previously announced, Harmon plays himself, the creator of a new TV comedy set at a community college.
Brie joins a long list of Jeong’s Community co-stars that have appeared on Dr. Ken including Joel McHale, Danny Pudi, Jim Rash, Gillian Jacobs & Yvette Nicole Brown. Jonathan Banks’ is also appearing in this week’s episode airing on Friday.
The Dr. Ken season finale is slated to air Friday, March 31.
Brie is repped by WME & Rise Management.
