MAGNOLIA shout-out in Ted Lasso, Season 2, Episode 1.  (Links to Reddit post.)

The initial Magnolia reference in SE2, E1 was great, in the same way the show is always dropping in cultural references.

Later, when "Wise Up" plays during a scene, I initially groaned at the obviousness of it all, but then realized that more than 95% of the Ted Lasso audience would never put 2+2 together and understand that was a second Magnolia reference.

Also, once there were two Magnolia references, I realized it was not a coincidence that the dead dog in the episode was named Earl.

This is something that happens.

Oooh, nice find.  An excellent write-up!   It feels like he didn't miss anything.  :yabbse-thumbup:

Out of all the stories that have been told in this Q&A what strikes me is how much a movie can be made in the editing room. I saw Midnight Run for the first time about a year ago with a good print in a screening room and I loved every second of it. But more specially I would have assumed this planned to the smallest detail. The clock work nature of the film is so tight and well thought out aside from being hysterical. You would have thought they had a script and they stuck to it religiously.

Not a specific mention of PTA, but Ronson describes (in episode 2) of becoming obsessed with the strings in SUNNY by Boney M the first time he heard it in BOOGIE NIGHTS.  (No mention of it in the trailer, I don't think.  Just for reference.)

So many movie/pop culture references, but -- even beyond the double-Magnolia season premiere -- it seems there are a lot of nods to Paul Thomas Anderson

Barely qualifies for this thread, but...

Screen Drafts, with guest Bryan Cogman (GoT writer), did a draft of 2007 films, and There Will Be Blood was definitely mentioned:

They also did a draft of 1999, and Magnolia makes that list. (They do spoil its ranking in the 2007 episode, FYI.)

One oft-chatted-about possible project, however, has not yet materialized: a film with Paul Thomas Anderson, who publicly voiced his desire to work with Haddish at the 2018 New York Film Critics Circle Awards, where Haddish brought down the house during an 18-minute acceptance speech for her Best Supporting Actress win for Girls Trip.

After an Anderson associate slipped Haddish his number at the event, the actress didnt dally: she called him the next day. The conversation was easy and fun, Haddish said, and Anderson was open to her ideas, asking her, If you could do any kind of movie, what would it be?

When they met up for lunch a few weeks later, Haddish said she had landed on one: a movie about the jazz scene in Los Angeles in the 40s and 50s. You know how they got Harlem Nights? I was like, What if we did South Central Nights, like what South Central used to be? How LA was this place where you could come and be free, but it was still very segregated, and how that worked in the relationships, the interracial relationships and all that dynamic?

While nothing has come from those meetings as of yet, Haddish says the pair are still talking We chop it up! and while she doesnt know whats going to happen in their potential partnership, she promises, Something will happen, though.

I have no idea if PTA will eventually get to work with Haddish, but I strongly feel like the "peculiar" Greenwood refers to maybe has to do with the straight up horror genre (he also mentioned that a couple of years ago in an interview for Guardian:)

He saw Anderson at the Prom, he says, throwing out a hundred film ideas A horror film was something we discussed.

It took over two years and lunch with Anderson for Krieps to be able to close the circle on any anxieties and scepticisms borne from her first brush with Hollywood.

I remember Paul looking at me from over a bowl of ramen in this really little restaurant, and suddenly he said to me, Vicky, I think we did a good movie. And I said, Yes., she recalls. It was really simple, but I think it was really important for both of us, after all this time, to just once, for us, say, Okay, I think we did a good job.
