IMDb has revealed its Top 10 Stars and Top 10 Breakout Stars of 2019, with “Captain Marvel” star Brie Larson coming in No. 1 on the first list and “The Boys” star Erin Moriarty topping the second, TheWrap has learned exclusively.

In addition, TheWrap has learned exclusively that “Stranger Things” star Dacre Montgomery — who is No. 5 on this year’s Top Stars list and No. 2 among the Breakout Stars rankings — has been given the IMDb STARmeter Award, an honor shared by Larson, IMDb’s No. 1 star of 2019 and the recipient of the 2015 IMDb Breakout STARmeter Award.

“Rather than base its annual rankings on small statistical samplings, reviews of professional critics, or box office performance, IMDb determines its definitive top 10 lists using data from IMDbPro STARmeter rankings, which are based on the actual page views of more than 200 million monthly visitors to IMDb,” the website told TheWrap.

Black Friday shopping is out and a Black Friday date night is so in.  On Friday, Nov. 30, Rami Malek and Lucy Boynton were all smiles while sitting courtside at the Los Angeles Lakers basketball game at the Staples Center.  While the two usually opt to stray away from the public eye when it comes to showing some Pda, the two looked head over heels with each other as they watched the basketball game. The Bohemian Rhapsody co-stars watched the Lakers play against the Washington Wizards and take home on the win with a score of 125-103.  The 25-year-old actress was wearing a long black mock turtleneck dress paired with black tights and platform shoes while the 38-year-old actor...

‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ Actress Lucy Boynton Gets Her Own Rock Biopic About Singer Marianne Faithfull

Sometimes Hollywood film trends can be frustrating. A film hits big at the box office and wins a few Oscars and suddenly every studio around town wants to do their own version of it. That’s what happened with “Bohemian Rhapsody,” as the film won some Oscars, did almost $1 billion in box office, and now studios are tripping over each other to find rock stars that need to have their life stories told.

After ‘Bohemian Rhapsody,’ Lucy Boynton To Star in New Marianne Faithfull Biopic

In musical drama Sing Street, Lucy Boynton played the love interest to a burgeoning musician, played by Ferdia Walsh-Peelo. In musical drama Bohemian Rhapsody, Boynton played the love interest-turned-life partner of musical superstar Freddie Mercury, played by Rami Malek. Now, finally, Boynton gets to lead her own musical drama -- one based on the incredible story of Marianne Faithfull. As reported on by Deadline, Boynton will both star in and executive produce the as-of-yet untitled film about Faithfull, the first time Boynton has ventured into producing.

‘Bohemian Rhapsody’s Lucy Boynton Eyes Her Own Rock Star Tale With Marianne Faithfull Film

‘Bohemian Rhapsody’s Lucy Boynton Eyes Her Own Rock Star Tale With Marianne Faithfull Film
Exclusive: After playing the love of Freddie Mercury’s life in Bohemian Rhapsody, Lucy Boynton’s next role will be playing iconic rock singer Marianne Faithfull, sources said. Boynton is in talks to star and make her debut as an executive producer, in a film that likely will begin production next summer. Waiting to get more details on creative and backer but the film is real, I’m reliably told.

Born into upper crust society with a father who was a British intelligence officer and a mother whose own father was an Austrian-Hungarian nobleman, Faithfull became a wildly successful international singer during the British Invasion with her hit As Tears Go By. Her romantic relationship with Mick Jagger and her influence on one of the most creative periods for the Rolling Stones — You Can’t Always Get What You Want and Wild Horses were two songs she influenced — became an overshadowing factor.

Lucy Boynton Loved Her ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ Experience But “Not So Much For The Filming”

When you’re in the middle of a crisis or a distinct moment of your life that will shape your future, you’re hardly ever aware at that time. It isn’t until you’re able to take a breath and reflect that the true nature of the situation is revealed. Apparently, that extends to making films, as well. Because for actress Lucy Boynton, her experience as one of the stars of “Bohemian Rhapsody” might have been rocky while in production, but she’s now able to look back on it fondly.

Lucy Boynton Misses ‘Bohemian Rhapsody,’ but ‘Not So Much the Filming’ of It

Lucy Boynton Misses ‘Bohemian Rhapsody,’ but ‘Not So Much the Filming’ of It
It’s been nearly eight months since “Bohemian Rhapsody” racked up four Oscars at the 2019 Academy Awards — losing out on Best Picture to “Green Book.” It’s hard to say which of the two controversial films winning Hollywood’s top prize would have angered more people — though the four wins for “Bohemian Rhapsody” were perplexing enough for many. (Especially its head-scratching win for best editing.) From defending the movie’s take on Freddie Mercury’s sexuality to weathering the removal of director Bryan Singer, breakout star Lucy Boynton was put through her paces promoting the blockbuster biopic about the late “Queen” frontman, which was mired in controversy long before the Oscars.

“It’s hard, because the further away you get from it, the more [certain] moments stand out and then everything [else] all kind of blurs,” Boynton said during a recent interview. “So I can’t see it as clearly as I

Elton said: "As well as taking drugs, my personal life had been, more or less, a disaster. I didn't pick them up so much as take them hostage."

Elton, 72, shared how he felt as though he was masking his true personality and feelings of insecurity, which left him "miserable" behind-closed-doors.

"I had been completely wrong when I thought that changing my name meant I'd changed as a person. I wasn't Elton, I was Reg," the singer explained referring to his birth name Reginald Kenneth Dwight.

‘The Politician’ Cast Reveal Their Hopes for Season 2 of Ryan Murphy’s Netflix Hit

‘The Politician’ Cast Reveal Their Hopes for Season 2 of Ryan Murphy’s Netflix Hit
[Editor’s Note: The following story contains spoilers for Season 1 of “The Politician.”]

As with any Ryan Murphy show, the season finale of “The Politician” took a big swing, jumping ahead in time three years in order to set up a brand new reality for Season 2. With the introduction of Judith Light and Bette Midler’s characters, and the final revelation that Ben Platt’s Payton Hobart will be mounting a campaign for New York State Senator, Murphy once again proved that anything is possible in his universe. Series regular Lucy Boynton, who plays school mean girl Astrid, put it succinctly: “You know [Season 2 is] gonna be so different from Season 1. It has to be, it’s Ryan.”

Just how different the second season of the soapy political drama will be is yet to be seen, but judging from the shenanigans in Season 1, Murphy will continue to push the envelope. Though we’re told actual details are being kept as mum as those for a Marvel movie,

Surprisingly, The Politician's Big Election Ends With a Whimper, Not a Roar

  • Popsugar
Warning: spoilers for The Politician below!

The Politician manages to pack in so much drama in eight episodes that it's easy to forget the show's biggest storyline: the class presidency. Ben Platt's Payton Hobart, a senior at a Santa Barbara, CA, high school, spends the first season solely focused on gaining this position of power at his school, to the point of unhealthy obsession. Landing the presidency is barely even the first step in his long-term plan to become president of the United States, which also includes getting into Harvard and marrying his long-time girlfriend, Alice (Julia Schlaepfer). But when he finally gets the presidency he's been fighting for, the victory is a hollow one, and it's all because of the relentless drama that precedes it.

The Politician Is Messy as Hell, but It Might Be Your Kind of Mess

  • Popsugar
There's a moment early on in the first episode of The Politician that filled me with great hope for Ryan Murphy's first foray into the world of Netflix.

Its hero, Payton (Dear Evan Hansen's Ben Platt), barges into the home of his handsome, popular, lacrosse-playing classmate River (David Corenswet) to rip him a new one for daring to run for student body president against him. Though we've only just been introduced to either character, and have barely begun to scratch the surface of their complex personalities, Payton casually mentions that he and River have slept together. Or, perhaps "casually" isn't the right word - Payton practically spits this revelation at River, though the latter barely reacts.

It made me excited for what was presumably to come - a story about Payton and River falling in love against all odds. Or perhaps, told in flashbacks, their previous relationship would

Is The Politician's Infinity Jackson Based on Gypsy Rose Blanchard?

  • Popsugar
On Netflix's latest dark comedy, The Politician, ambitious high schooler Payton Hobart (Ben Platt) finds an unlikely friend in the cancer-stricken wallflower Infinity Jackson (Zoey Deutch), a girl from the wrong side of the tracks with only her Grandma Dusty (Jessica Lange) to care for her. But there is a lot more going on with the Jackson family than meets the eye . . . so much so that it bears a striking resemblance to the Dee Dee and Gypsy Rose Blanchard case from a few years ago. How closely does art imitate life? Here's what to know.

Warning: Spoilers follow for season one of The Politician.

In 2015, police found the body of Dee Dee Blanchard outside her home near Springfield, Mo. She had been stabbed multiple times and her physically and mentally disabled daughter, Gypsy Rose, was missing from their home. According to neighbors and friends, Dee Dee had always told

‘Death on the Nile’: Kenneth Branagh’s Agatha Christie Sequel Snags Annette Bening, Gal Gadot, and Armie Hammer

‘Death on the Nile’: Kenneth Branagh’s Agatha Christie Sequel Snags Annette Bening, Gal Gadot, and Armie Hammer
Kenneth Branagh’s first foray into the rich world of Agatha Christie murder mysteries, the 2017 surprise hit “Murder on the Orient Express,” boasted a starry cast of big names, including Michelle Pfeiffer, Penélope Cruz, Johnny Depp, Willem Dafoe, Lucy Boynton, and Daisy Ridley, so it’s no surprise that his imminent sequel is just as star-studded. As production commences on “Death on the Nile,” based on Christie’s novel of the same name, the full cast has been announced, and it’s a doozy.

Branagh returns as both director and star, slipping back into the famed mustache that makes his hairy Belgian detective Hercule Poirot so hard to miss. He’ll be joined by a motley assortment of potential murderers, including Tom Bateman (who reprises the role of Bouc from “Murder on the Orient Express”), Annette Bening, Russell Brand, Ali Fazal, Dawn French, Gal Gadot, Armie Hammer, Rose Leslie, Emma Mackey,

‘The Politician’ Star Ben Platt on Finale’s Time Jump and Going ‘Toe-to-Toe’ With Judith Light in Season 2
(Warning: This post contains spoilers through the Season 1 finale of “The Politician.”)

And just like that — after resigning from high-school politics, saying goodbye to his mother, having his Harvard acceptance rescinded, several twists of fate and a three-year time jump — Payton Hobart is back in the race.

In the closing moments of the Season 1 finale of Ryan Murphy’s new Netflix series “The Politician,” Payton (Ben Platt) decides to run against longtime incumbent Dede Standish (Judith Light) in the New York State Senate race, with his old high-school classmates assisting in his election campaign.

“I feel super excited. Superficially, because I get to stay at home in New York and make the show here, which I’m very excited about (laughs),” Platt told TheWrap of the second season of Murphy’s show. The show locations from Santa Barbara, Calif. to New York City, thanks to the time jump on the Season 1 finale.

The Politician's Lucy Boynton Was So Scared She Ruined Her Audition, She Ran Straight to a Bar

  • Popsugar
In Netflix's new dark comedy-drama The Politician, Lucy Boynton steals the show as Astrid, the power-hungry "first lady" pulling the strings behind her boyfriend River, a candidate for class president in a bitter high school battle of words and wills. It's hard to imagine anyone else playing the role after you've binged the show, but Boynton herself wasn't so sure after her audition.

"It was such a quick audition," she told me and a group of other journalists at the Soho Hotel in London earlier this month. "I exited, turned right, turned right again straight into a bar, like, 'I think I ruined that.'" Clearly the show's creators Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk, and Ian Brennan had other ideas, as she quickly joined the cast.

"I think originally the rumors were that that it was going to be a kind of political musical, but it's strayed far from that.

The Premiere of Netflix's The Politician Doubled as a Big Ole Party For the Cast

  • Popsugar
The Politician is now streaming on Netflix, and the cast celebrated with a huge bash in New York City. On Thursday, the stars of the dark comedy gathered together for the season one premiere at the DGA Theater. Even though their characters are pretty cutthroat with each other as they battle over politics and relationships, the cast couldn't have been cuter as they walked the red carpet.

The stars, including Ben Platt, Zoey Deutch, and Laura Dreyfuss, looked like longtime friends as they hugged it out, held hands, and posed for the cameras. Lucy Boynton and Gwyneth Paltrow even brought along their respective partners, Rami Malek and Brad Falchuk, as their dates. The cuteness only continued as they made their way to the afterparty at The Pool, which included a statue of Platt just like in the show's opening credits. Yep, it was basically a big love fest!

‘The Politician’s’ David Corenswet Loves Ben Platt’s Rendition of ‘River’ Just as Much as You Do

‘The Politician’s’ David Corenswet Loves Ben Platt’s Rendition of ‘River’ Just as Much as You Do
(Warning: This post contains spoilers for Episode 101 of “The Politician.”)

David Corenswet had a Tom Sawyer-like experience while shooting Ryan Murphy’s new Netflix series “The Politician” when he attended a memorial service for his character River, a Santa Barbara, California, teenager who commits suicide in the show’s very first episode.

During the high school’s service for River, Payton Hobart (played by Ben Platt) sings Joni Mitchell’s “River” as a tribute to Corenswet’s character, a boy Payton was publicly running against for student body president and with whom he privately had a very complicated, intimate relationship.

And as morbid as it might be to see a portrait of yourself on stage, covered in flowers, as actors in the audience mourn your fictional passing, Corenswet wasn’t about to pass up the opportunity to hear Platt sing and counts the experience as one of his favorites
