As expected, Reese Witherspoon attended the Golden Globe Awards last night, and was quite the star of the show not to mention an inspiration to all! Big Little Lies was nominated for 6 awards and won one award in every category it was nominated in, including Best Television Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television – this of course meant Reese was honoured for her work as a producer on the show. Glamour Reese sends a massive congratulations to Reese and the entire cast and crew for their well deserved wins last night and for the on-going success and love the show is receiving – we’re so proud of Reese! Reese used her speech to highlight the bravery of the women who have come forward in the last year with stories of abuse and harassment, and Reese vowed to continue telling their stories and raising awareness of the issue. Backstage, the cast talked about the reasons for wearing black tonight, the bond between the cast, and of course season 2 of the show! You can watch the acceptance speech and backstage interviews below.
In addition, Reese also presented her friend and A Wrinkle In Time co-star Oprah Winfrey with the Cecil B. de Mille Award.
Reese walked the red carpet with friend Eva Longoria, to show support for the Times Up movement. Reese also posed with Halle Berry, Ashley Judd, Salma Hayek, Emma Stone, Billie Jean King, Geena Davis and Sharon Stone. Most of the attendees – male and female – wore black, again to show their solidarity for those who have come forward with stories of abuse and harrassment. Reese wore a custom Zac Posen gown, with Jimmy Choo shoes and Bulgari jewellery.

Reese attended the AFI Awards Luncheon in Los Angeles yesterday, where Big Little Lies was honoured. The AFI announced their Top 10 Films & TV Shows of 2017 back in December, and yesterday the winners celebrated their work, with Reese and writer David E. Kelley representing Big Little Lies. Reese was snapped with fellow Hollywood stars Tom Hanks, Octavia Spencer, Patty Jenkins, Greta Gerwig and Gillian Anderson. The first HQ photos are in our Gallery for you:
Reese and her Big Little Lies co-stars and crew are named as one of Entertainment Weekly’s ‘Entertainers of the Year’ in their Best of 2017 issue. The show itself is also listed as one of the best of the year. We have scans in our Gallery and the issue is on news-stands now.
Big Little Lies cast and crew on their surprise hit of 2017
When Reese Witherspoon and Nicole Kidman first got together to discuss bringing Liane Moriarty’s best-selling novel Big Little Lies to television, they never predicted the critical love, awards, and audience adulation that would follow (including a recently announced season 2).
“This never happens! It’s been simply extraordinary,” says Kidman. “It’s been such a surprise because as much as we believed in it, we didn’t know whether it would connect.”
In fact, viewers flipped from the start over the story of three mothers (Kidman, Witherspoon, and Shailene Woodley) who become entwined when their small children are placed in the same class at a private school in tony Monterey, California. Each mother had a compelling story line: There’s Kidman’s Celeste — beautiful, with a seemingly perfect life and handsome husband (Alexander Skarsgård) — who hides her domestic-abuse truth; Witherspoon’s Madeline, a feisty ringleader who must contend with her ex-husband and his perfect new wife (Zoë Kravitz); and Jane (Woodley), a young single mom hiding a big secret, who ends up tangling with alpha mom Renata (Laura Dern).
Having TV veteran David E. Kelley write the entire series and director Jean-Marc Vallée behind the camera for all seven episodes gave Big Little Lies a sense of cohesion — to say nothing of the beautiful vistas, the aspirational real estate, the infectious soundtrack — that resulted in the feeling that this was one long feature film.
“I was just going to do the first couple,” says Vallée. But he quickly found he had become too emotionally engaged. “I felt like I couldn’t abandon it—or these women.” Us either.
Big Little Lies will return for a season 2 on HBO.
In a new interview with the LA Times, Laura Dern reflects on some of her past roles – including Wild and Big Little Lies:
“It’s where I found Reese [Witherspoon]. Reese and I were texting recently and I was like, ‘Who would have thought that I would have found my Bogart in Reese Witherspoon?’ We have this particularly exciting connection and chemistry — or whatever it is — to go to whatever places are offered us. This was a very emotional film, and we did difficult things together, and I couldn’t have a better time with an actor. But the larger gift of ‘Wild’ is that Cheryl Strayed enters your life and everything changes forever. She’s really a philosopher of how to take the broken and thrive. She has continued to teach me every day.”
Big Little Lies
“It’s the best time ever to be working on something that is about not only powerful but complicated women. Women with longings, who are searching to be stronger for themselves and their family. Exploring those themes was amazing, but to be doing it with a group of people who I now consider family is off-the-charts fantastic.”

Laura Dern appeared on Good Morning America on Thursday to promote her new Star Wars movie – she also talked about Big Little Lies:
‘Big Little Lies’ star talks about ‘constantly group texting’ with her co-stars
Laura Dern, who scored a Golden Globe nomination for HBO’s “Big Little Lies,” said Reese Witherspoon is the most voracious texter among her female co-stars.
“She’s teaching us other girls how to be better communicators, God love it,” Dern said on “Good Morning America” today of her co-star.
She said the women on the hit HBO series – Nicole Kidman, Reese Witherspoon, Shailene Woodley and Zoe Kravitz – are “constantly group texting.”
“It’s true,” she added. “It’s the beautiful thing of women getting to work together after years of being the only girl on a film. Suddenly you get to share parenting and struggles of the day, not just our work.”
With news hitting of “Big Little Lies” season 2 returning as a limited series, Dern said the women of the cast are “excited.”
“We’re all in the hands of the genius brain of David Kelley, so we’ll see what he orchestrates for us,” she said of the show’s creator and writer. “We’re in love with the characters and we’re deep best friends now, this group of girls.”
Congratulations to Reese and her Big Little Lies co-stars and crew for their 4 nominations at the Screen Actors Guild Awards! Extremely well deserved!
The ceremony will be held on January 21st, and will air live on TNT and TBS at 8pm ET.

Vulture report that there will be 4 new characters in the upcoming new series of Big Little Lies. They don’t state their source so we have no idea how accurate this it, but here it is for those of you interested. Production is reported to start in March 2018 and conclude in that August.
Vulture has learned that auditions are underway for four new characters and that production will occur between March and August. (An HBO spokesperson said the network could not confirm the information about the new characters.) According to a casting breakdown sent to talent agencies for auditions, Emmy-winning casting director David Rubin is searching for four actors to play the following characters:
• Michael Perkins, a new second-grade teacher at Otter Bay Elementary School who wants to cultivate global and social consciousness in his young students. Renata (Laura Dern) becomes furious when Mr. Perkins’s lessons on global warming causes Amabella to have a panic attack. (Poor Amabella can’t get a break!)
• A new employee in the school administration office who befriends Jane (Shailene Woodley). Eventually, the two women learn about each other’s “deepest secrets.”
• Bonnie’s parents, Elizabeth and Martin Howard. Elizabeth is described as someone who has passed on her outwardly Zen qualities to her daughter Bonnie (Zoë Kravitz), but ultimately reveals herself to be controlling and abusive. Martin is emotionally distant toward his daughter, but a family emergency forces him to address the strain between them.
