Shirley MacLaine, Amanda Seyfried Have "The Last Word"

by Luca Celada March 4, 2017

When it comes to Shirley MacLaine there’s really no other way to say it, we’re dealing with Hollywood royalty, with the curriculum – and the hardware – to prove it. Over the span of a six-decade long career Ms. MacLaine has earned 19 nominations and won 5 Golden Globes plus a Cecil B. deMille Award and the special New Star of the Year Award in 1955! That was for her role in Alfred Hitchcock’s The Trouble With Harry. Her last nomination – so far – was in 2009 for Best Actress in a TV Movie for Coco Chanel. In January Ms. MacLaine braved the altitude and a historic blizzard to present her latest effort, The Last Word, at the Sundance Film Festival and received a well-deserved standing ovation from a packed Eccles Auditorium. The HFPA’ Silvia Bizio spoke to her and to co-star Amanda Seyfried about the film directed by Mark Pellington and which writer Stuart Ross Fink expressly penned with MacLaine in mind.
