‘Till’, ‘Don’t Worry Darling’ and ’Living’ Production Designers On Recreating A Bygone Era

The 1950s can inspire various forms of nostalgia. Three films this Oscar season give life to that bygone era in three very different ways. Till gives a historically accurate representation of the period, heavily based on newsreels and photos documenting the Emmett Till case. The decade gets a rose-colored perspective with Don’t Worry Darling, taking a more opulent and luxurious lens to the Golden Age in America, while Living takes on 1950s London, showing a more restrained aesthetic and color palette than its American counterparts.

Jazmine Sullivan on ‘Till’s’ Original Song ‘Stand Up’: ‘We All Need to Be Affirmed and That’s What This Does’

A.D. Amorosi The import of crafting an original song for “Till,” director and co-writer Chinonye Chukwu’s heart-wrenching biopic on the execution of Emmett Till and the quest for justice led by his mother, Mamie, was never lost on Jazmine Sullivan and Dernst “D’Mile’ Emile II, the songwriters, performer and producer, respectively, of “Stand Up.” Soon to be submitted for Academy Awards consideration, “Stand Up” was released on Oct. 7, as the film, “Till,” expands with its broad theatrical release planned for Oct 21. The lineage of “Stand Up” is beyond stellar. The emotional depth-defying vocals and songwriting skills of Sullivan won her 2022 Grammys for best R&B performance (“Pick Up Your Feelings”) and best R&B album (“Heaux Tales”). Equally emotive when it comes to crafting melody, D’Mile became the first songwriter in Grammy history to win song of the year two years in a row with H.E.R.’s “I Can’t Breathe” in 2021 and Silk Sonic’s “Leave the Door Open” in 2022, along with having won an Oscar for best original song for his “Judas and the Black Messiah” (2021) track, “Fight for You,” with H.E.R. and Tiara Thomas.

Whoopi added: “I assume you don't watch the show, or you would know that was not a fat suit.”She continued by adding that it was “ok to not be a fan of the movie” but suggested the writer should not critique people’s external appearances.She added: “Just comment on the acting, and if you have a question, ask somebody.“I’m sure you didn't mean to be demeaning.”Whoopi’s co-panellist Sunny Hostin noted the “health challenges” her co-star had endured.Whoopi responded: “We will hope that she just didn't know, and now she'll know the next time you go to talk about somebody, you talk about them as an actor.“If you're not sure if that's them in there, don't make blanket statements, because it makes you not sound like you know what you're doing.”The Daily Beast has since added an editor's note which read: “This story has been updated to reflect that Whoopi Goldberg says she was not wearing a fat suit.”Last year, Whoopi struggled with some difficult health challenges that left her using a walker.Concerns grew among fans after she was absent from The View for a week before she came back and explained she had been battling a health condition.The host said she had been “laying in a hospital room” because of a condition called sciatica in mid-2020.She elaborated: “It is basically a bulging disc in your back and it impacts the sciatic nerve, which sends pain down your leg.“I was trying to move my leg – impossible to do.
