Yesterday (June 14), Aubrey attended the “Baby Driver” Premiere in Los Angeles. She looked absolutely gorgeous! While there, she was joined by Natasha Lyonne on the red carpet. High-quality images have been added to our gallery – thank you Lora (www.lucy-boynton.net) for sending most of these our way!
“The Little Hours” press tour continues! Aubrey, alongside with the rest of the cast, was on Funny Or Die’s Facebook for a live Q&A yesterday afternoon. Be sure to watch the interview below, and don’t forget that the movie comes out on June 30.
Mark your calendars! The Emmy Awards nominations arrive next month (July 13) and Aubrey is already a favourite contender. She has just made the The Hollywood Reporter‘s Supporting Actor Contenders list alongside Samira Wiley, Timothy Simons and Louie Anderson and more. In the end, 30 top scene-stealing actors and actresses gathered for the magazine’s photoshoot. I’ve added 2 shots to our gallery:
The Wrap has revealed its 2017 “10 Emmy Contenders to Watch” list, which is made of actors and actresses who have turned in award-worthy work this season. To celebrate her performance in “Legion”, Aubrey is part of the list and got photographed by Corina Marie. High-quality images have been added to our gallery.
The Wrap – It’s usually delusional to think of people on TV or movie screens as your old friends. But not for “Legion” star Aubrey Plaza.
About a decade ago, before her big break on NBC’s “Parks and Recreation,” Plaza worked alongside a jaw-dropping number of other young actors also destined for stardom. They included Aziz Ansari, Donald Glover, Ellie Kemper, Kate McKinnon, Bobby Moynihan, and several members of the “Silicon Valley” cast — plus about two dozen more names you’ll recognize.
Plaza listed them for us in the video above, and damn. She crossed paths with a lot of funny people.
Were Plaza and her old cohorts part of a secret laboratory designed to incubate comedy genius? Kind of. They studied and performed together at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theater, an underground stage that extended beneath a Gristedes grocery store in Manhattan’s Chelsea neighborhood. It was famously founded by an original UCB team that included “Veep” star Matt Walsh and “Saturday Night Live” vet Amy Poehler. Poehler, of course, enlisted Plaza, Ansari and fellow UCB vet Ben Schwartz for her seven-season NBC sitcom “Parks and Recreation.”
HR – Ingrid Goes West has been set as the closing night film at the L.A. Film Festival.
The dark comedy from director Matt Spicer, which is set for an Aug. 11 release, stars Aubrey Plaza as the obsessive and unstable titular woman who secretly moves to Los Angeles to get close to Taylor Sloane, an Instagram lifestyle guru played by Elizabeth Olsen.
As previously announced, the Film Independent fest will open with the world premiere of Colin Trevorrow’s The Book of Henry while Sundance hit Brigsby Bear will act as the gala screening.
“Being able to bookend the festival with strong female leads was a deliberate choice,” said festival director Jennifer Cochis. “These women aren’t a love interest or a small plot point, they are driving the narratives of both our opening and closing night films.”
The L.A. Film Fest will run June 14-22, with screenings taking place at ArcLight Cinemas in Culver City as well as in Hollywood and Santa Monica.
