I’ve updated the Robin Wright Web Gallery with screencaps from Robin’s role in “Everest”.

On the actress side, Tatiana Maslany (BBC America’s Orphan Black) was once again back on the bench, as was Robin Wright (Netflix’s House of Cards). Netflix’s Stranger Things’ Millie Bobby Brown was considered likely to get recognized in the supporting category, but although the sci-fi breakout did get into the drama category and a nom for Winona Ryder, its kid stars were left out. Same for Emilia Clarke-Sophie Turner-Maisie Williams on Thrones, Constance Zimmer on Lifetime’s UnReal, and Maura Tierney in Showtime’s The Affair.
Reese Witherspoon’s Pacific Standard and Spotlight producer Anonymous Content are teaming to produce a timely TV series based on Kate Andersen Brower’s bestseller First Women: The Grace & Power Of America’s Modern First Ladies. It will be directed and executive produced Robin Wright, who plays a First Lady on TV on Netflix’s House Of Cards.
The book, published April 12 by HarperCollins, is described as an intimate, news-making look at the true modern power brokers at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue: the First Ladies, from Jackie Kennedy to Michelle Obama. Wright, who won a Golden Globe for her role as FLOTUS Claire Underwood on House Of Cards, is attached to direct the pilot. She executive produces, along with Pacific Standard’s Witherspoon, Anonymous Content’s Michael Sugar, and Bruna Papandrea. Anonymous Content’s Ashley Zalta and Doreen Wilcox-Little are co-executive producers.
One of the coolest shots in the trailer is a slow-motion sequence of Robin Wright’s General Antiope shooting two arrows at the enemy. In the comics, she is the sister to Hippolyta and Diana’s aunt. She’s clearly fighting military soldiers from the war, meaning that perhaps Themyscira will get drawn into the broader conflict of World War I at some point in the film. Either way, she’s leading the charge on the Amazonian side.
