Williams talked about her longtime love of acting, her future projects in music and on stage, and about Beyonce's pregnancy.

The hotbed of anxiety and ego that can underlie a theater rehearsal or a routine visit to a doctor's office - that's one of several emotional textures that writer-director Charlie Kaufman (the screenwriter of Being John Malkovich and Adaptation) captures with low-key humor and precision in Synecdoche, New York. Sadly, as the movie rambles along with its own brand of quasi-magical surrealism, the links to real experience grow scarcer and more frayed. In terms of how the scenes move and fit together, everything is a little off, and not in the good way we associate with Kaufman when he is in top form.

That underrated actor Ewan McGregor recently did something even Liam Neeson couldn't do: Triumph in the Star Wars prequel trilogy. But when it comes to slick New York City genre movies, he's a jinx. He helped sink the witless Manhattan sex farce Down With Love (2003), and he couldn't inject life into the psychiatric trick mystery Stay. He does even worse in the new Gothic-Gotham suspense film Deception. This awful, glossy hybrid of The Talented Mr. Ripley and Eyes Wide Shut serves up McGregor as a shy high-powered accountant, crudely banged and boringly bespectacled despite his expensive tailoring.

You figure this would be old hat for Meryl Streep by now, given that she's been nominated for about a gazillion Oscars. But a clearly delighted Streep said hearing her name announced from the Oscars' stage was a near-surreal experience. "They call your name, and you go into like this white light," said a smiling, joking Streep. "I felt like a kid. " Noting that 29 years have passed since she won her last Oscar (for "Sophie's Choice"), Streep put the passing years into perspective.
