Oscars 2018: And the award for best supporting actress goes to … women’s anger

  Oscars 2018: And the award for best supporting actress goes to … women’s anger A montage introducing the Best Supporting Actress award referenced the outrage felt by many women inside and outside Hollywood right now. “I know something of a woman in a man’s profession.” “Don’t talk to me like I’m stupid — that p****s me off.” “The least I require is respect.”It wasn’t a segment on Time’s Up. Instead, those lines came from a montage of classic female performances that formed a pointed introduction to the presentation of the Oscar for Best Actress in a Supporting Role.

Netflix paid Claire Foy less than co-star Matt Smith for her work on “ The Crown .” Michelle Williams, billed as the film’ s lead actress , earned a fraction of what supporting actor Mark Wahlberg did for reshoots.

(Robert Viglasky/Netflix) If there is a lesson to take away from the first two seasons of “The Crown,” it is that no sane person would dare cross Queen Elizabeth II. Netflix seems to have learned this too late, however, as it was revealed on Tuesday that lead actress Claire Foy made less than co-star Matt Smith for her work on the show.

Variety reported that producers Suzanne Mackie and Andy Harries were asked during a discussion at the INTV Conference in Jerusalem whether the actors playing Queen Elizabeth and her husband, Prince Philip, were paid the same amount. The pair said Smith made more because of his “Doctor Who” fame, saying that the inequity would be amended in the future.

“Going forward, no one gets paid more than the queen,” Mackie said.

Unfortunately for Foy, she won’t be the one who’s paid more. The period drama’s unusual structure calls for an entirely different set of actors every two seasons. While Foy and Smith depicted the royal couple from the beginning of Queen Elizabeth’s reign until the mid-1960s, their characters have been recast for the third and fourth seasons. Olivia Colman will play the queen when the series resumes filming in July, while the new Philip has yet to be announced. Helena Bonham Carter will replace Vanessa Kirby as Princess Margaret, the queen’s rebellious younger sister.

Slideshow: 10 actors who we'd love to see play Meghan Markle on The Crown (POPSUGAR)

10 Actors Who We'd Love to See Play Meghan Markle on The Crown: <p>Royal fever is about to go into overdrive the closer we get to the May 19 <a href=nuptials of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, and while the royal family is notoriously tight-lipped about the inner workings of their private lives, we have the Netflix historical drama The Crown to thank for a more intimate look at the life of Queen Elizabeth II and kin.

Anticipation for the third season of The Crown is already buzzing with word that Princess Diana and Camilla Parker Bowles will be portrayed on the show, but another storyline we're really dying to see is the one surrounding the courtship of Markle to the fifth, soon to be sixth, royal in line for the throne.

Playing Markle would be a tough gig for any actor, especially since the beauty was an actress herself right up until the now-famous engagement announcement, but if The Crown decides to weave Prince Harry and Markle's love story into future episodes, these ladies would all be shoo-ins for the role of the future royal.

It’s daunting but exciting, and I hope it’ll keep the series fresh and really of interest to people.”

Claire Foy Was Paid Less to Play the Actual Queen Than Matt Smith in Netflix ’ s The Crown . Foy not getting equal pay on a show where her character and Smith ’s are constantly fighting about him feeling emasculated by her power is so deliciously poetic I could almost laugh.

NetflixClaire Foy and Matt Smith on Netflix ’ s ‘ The Crown ’. Producers on Netflix ’ s “ The Crown ” said during a recent panel interview that Matt Smith , who played Prince Philip, made more money than Claire Foy , who played Queen Elizabeth II.

The revelation that the show’s lead made less than a supporting actor is particularly surprising when considering critical reception. Foy received high praise for her portrayal of the restrained monarch, in which she nailed everything from the queen’s posh accent to her physical poise. She was nominated for an Emmy and won a Golden Globe for her performance in the first season, arguably placing her at the same level of fame as (if not higher than) Smith. She still received a smaller paycheck than him for the second season, which earned her another Golden Globe nod. The Washington Post has reached out to Foy’s and Smith’s representatives for comment.

This isn’t the first time a woman has been paid less than a lower-billed actor. After Kevin Spacey was accused of sexual misconduct, “All the Money in the World” director Ridley Scott replaced him with Christopher Plummer and called the rest of the cast back to reshoot pivotal scenes. Michelle Williams, billed as the film’s lead actress, earned a fraction of what supporting actor Mark Wahlberg did for reshoots. USA Today reported that Williams earned just $80 a day, adding up to less than $1,000, while Wahlberg was paid $1.5 million total. Both actors were represented by the same agency.
