Radhika Jones about returning to the cinemas – and how this price season is different

I visited Los Angeles a few months ago for the first time since February 2020. It was wonderful to see our Hollywood writers and editors in person and feel the excitement surrounding all the excellent films coming out this fall and winter. I’ve been to shows in New York and have been so happy to reconnect to the state where I come out of a dark theater and into the afternoon sunlight while still shaking the imagined world of you you have inhabited the last few hours. The interruption between a city street and a cinematic universe only makes the film’s impression stronger. As someone who remembers the advent of the VCR, it still seems like a miracle that I can watch so many movies at any time at home – but with the necessary precautions in place, I have been extra happy to return to the cinema . Our Awards Insider team only covers this season Vanity Fair can, with daily updates on critically-acclaimed honors, the status of the Oscar race, and expert insight into all the film-making components that come together to create a candidate. Our first of two special numbers this season features Belfast‘s CaitrĂ­ona Balfe, star of the cult favorite Outlander, whose appearance in Kenneth Branagh’s films on the issues has given her new recognition and further ignited her ambitions in acting and instruction.

It was fun and busy week in LA At the LACMA Art + Film Gala, I had the pleasure of seeing artists Amy Sherald and Kehinde Wiley honored along with Steven Spielberg. And I caught Priyanka Chopra Jonas at a party she and her husband Nick Jonas hosted Diwali. There were warm and welcoming lights all the way up the driveway and everyone was dancing and it felt like we all had reason to celebrate. As Rebecca Ford writes in her cover story, Priyanka enters 2022 with her cup overflowing: projects right from her most recent trip to The Matrix Resurrection to new productions with Amazon Studios for her first Hindi film in a number of years, which she will record in India with two Bollywood actors. When you listen to her, you get the feeling that she is a woman at the top of her game, who is also, in her own words, “on an abyss of reinvention.”
