Isla Fisher Has Written A Children’s Book

To some she’s one of Hollywood’s biggest stars, to others she’ll always be Shannon from Home and Away but now to a whole generation of children, Isla Fisher will be the voice behind Marge In Charge.

Inspired by two of her best friends, and her own imagination, Isla has created every child’s dream babysitter, Marge who has multi-coloured hair and a great sense of fun.

In her first Irish interview this morning, Isla spoke to Paul about her nerves of entering into the world of children’s books and when we can see her next on the big screen, plus we found out if she still thinks of her past as Shannon.

Marge In Charge, which is for younger readers, will be out next Thursday July 28th on Piccadilly Press.

“The Great Gatsby” leads AACTA nominations

December 7th 2013No Comments"The Great Gatsby", Career

Huge congratulations to Isla for her Best Supporting Actress nomination at the Aussie AACTA Awards!

The Great Gatsby leads AACTA nominations

Baz Luhrmann’s blockbuster The Great Gatsby has led the nominations for the 3rd annual AACTA Awards with 14 nods, closely followed by Kim Mordaunt’s independent film The Rocket

The two are vastly different Australian features. The Great Gatsby is a razzle dazzle adaptation of an American classic novel, while The Rocket, which earned 12 nominations, is a low-budget, foreign-language feature, filmed entirely in Laos with a lead actor plucked from the streets.

It means come January, Leonardo DiCaprio will face off against former street kid Sitthiphon “Ki” Disamoe for Best Lead Actor, while Luhrmann and Mordaunt are both in the running for Best Direction, alongside Ivan Sen for Mystery Road and the 17 directors of The Turning.

The two features are also up for Best Film alongside Dead Europe, Mystery Road, Satellite Boy and The Turning.

The AACTA (Australian Academy of Cinema and Television Arts) CEO Damian Trewhella says the nominations show the range of films our country is producing.

“The film and television productions that have been acknowledged this year are so incredibly diverse and as an ensemble illustrate our breadth of screen talent,” he said in a statement on Tuesday.

Isla at the Australians In Film Awards Gala

Last week Isla attended the Australians In Film Awards Gala in Beverley Hills, and looked super chic in a little black lace dress. Isla was on hand to present the Orry-Kelly International Award to her The Great Gatsby director Baz Luhrmann (who was not present), and posed backstage with Robert Pattinson.

Isla Fisher presented Baz Luhrman with one of two Orry-Kelly International awards tonight. The Great Gatsby director couldn’t be there to accept in person, so she announced that she’d take home his boomerang statuette, teasing: “My first award!” Isla also couldn’t resist comparing the title of the honor to the R&B singer with a very similar name: R. Kelly. When Rob presented the second of the statuettes to Blue Tongue shortly after Isla, he said he was chagrined she’d already made the first R. Kelly-related crack. Then, he jokingly referred to the honor as “the golden shower award,” earning the evening’s biggest roar of laughter from the crowd. In typical self-deprecating form, Rob also wondered out loud if he should ditch his “insanely” generic written speech, but ultimately decided against it after the crowd urged him to keep reading.

“The Great Gatsby” HD Film Screencaptures

August 27th 2013No Comments"The Great Gatsby", Gallery Updates

The Great Gatsby is released on DVD and Blu-ray in the US today, and I have a fabulous bunch of HD screencaptures from the film for you! I really enjoyed the film – it had a great cast, and looked and sounded great, and it’s probably one of my favourites of the year so far. Isla was ravishing as Myrtle and I thought she gave a really different performance from anything we’ve seen her do before – I was quite taken aback at how different she was, although did notice some of her trademark quirks thrown in too. I just wished we could’ve seen more of Myrtle!

Enjoy the beautiful screencaptures in our Gallery, and don’t forget that they will obviously contain spoilers!! If you haven’t seen the movie yet then be sure to track down a copy 🙂
