Tanna and “Save Our Surf“

After the rain filled storm a few weeks ago, the L.A. Times warned surfers not to get into the ocean, because of trash and contaminants that were washed from the beaches into the Pacific. In the Marina del Rey Harbor one can often see empty bottles, food containers, sanitary napkins and paths of oily liquid floating on the surface of the water. It’s a shameful sight, as well as it is life threatening for the animals that are in the ocean or on the water of the bay: the dolphins, the pelicans, and the ducks.

In addition this adds another risk to the health and lives of surfers, who have already chosen a dangerous sport. Hence, it is only natural that surfers who love and spend a lot of time in the ocean - would want to protect it. This is exactly what the Canadian born actress and surfer Tanna Frederick - who currently plays the lead in Henry Jaglom’s play “Just 45 Minutes from Broadway” - has been fighting for ever since she founded “Project Save Our Surf.”

This Week in Hollywoodland

This week we had the announcement from the HFPA naming Golden Globe nominations. I’m going to accelerate a bit and give my choices for the Oscar. With ten nominations for Best Picture this year, as we had in the old days, I believe these should definitely be included. “Irene In Time,” “Invictus,” “New Moon,” “Precious” and “Avatar.” Lead Actress hands down these ladies shined through incredibly. Hilary Swank, Mo’Nique, Emily Blunt, Sandra Bullock and Tanna Frederick. Lead Actor, Jeff Bridges, George Clooney and Tobey Maguire. Supporting Actress nominees should include Karen Black, Penelope Cruz, Anna Kendrick and Julianne Moore. With Supporting Actors, there are too many to mention. However, just give the award to Matt Damon, who transformed himself into Hollywood’s best supporting actor this year in “Invictus.”

Two Famous Friends In Hollywood, An Interview

How come the public can’t believe that two beautiful and talented women can be best friends? Oprah often says that the tabloids say things about her and her best friend, publishing executive Gayle King, because the public is never taught that women can be real friends and that they are naturally catty, which is not true at all. That false belief is an understatement in Hollywood. Even though we have had some of the most famous ladies as friends in this town, people still don’t believe that Jennifer Aniston and Courteney Cox are actually best friends. Long before those two famous friends were born, we had studio buddies like WB’s Olivia deHavilland and Bette Davis, MGM’s Norma Shearer and Janet Leigh and today we have actress Tanna Frederick and artist Felicity Nove as our example of true feminine friendship in Tinseltown. The two beauties not only encourage each other professionally but compliment each other as friends.

Tanna Frederick is getting Oscar buzz for her amazing transformation in “Irene in Time,” while still blowing critics away in Henry Jaglom’s play, “Just 45 Minutes From Broadway,” which is still playing at the Edgemar Theater in Santa Monica. There were other surprises this week in Tinseltown.

Tanna Frederick’s amazing performance in “Irene in Time” is all the rage now that many Academy voters are getting an opportunity to see screenings of the film.

Irene in Time

By Armond White
September 23, 2009

If Henry Jaglom was a trust-funded neophyte, he'd be acclaimed the King of Mumblecore - a genre that, it turns out, he pioneered several decades ago. Jaglom's latest film (his 17th) is titled Irene In Time, the christened name of a sloop won in a poker game. It's also the name of a curly-haired young woman (Tanna Frederick) whose now-deceased poker-playing father cast such an intimidating, loving, protective shadow over her childhood that she has trouble finding an adult male partner who can match his ideal...
