It’s easy to get caught up in all the glam surrounding the Oscars best dressed ladies, but you can’t miss these dudes who put some serious personality into their looks. Terrence Howard wore a custom robe from the lingerie brand La Perla, Pharrell Williams was decked out in Chanel necklaces and there were many more surprising styles from risk-taking guys.
Gosling usually sticks to simple, sleek designs, but today he accentuated his traditional black tuxedo from Gucci Diy Made to Order with a velvet shawl lapel and ruffled evening shirt that brought a certain type of throwback ’70s vibe to his look. »

As Pharrell Williams told Ryan Seacrest on the Oscars red carpet, Taraji P. Henson is the definition of a “pluralist.” Whether it’s “tv, film, fashion, books” it seems there’s nothing the actress can’t achieve when she sets her mind to it. Which apparently also includes totally killing it on every red carpet.
Taraji told Seacrest that she, “love when men pop color, it’s so easy to do black.” But while all the men in Hollywood may be playing it safe on the red carpet, Henson was doing anything but, using the opportunity to take a major »

It’s been 25 years since Elizabeth Taylor appeared at the 1992 Oscars, wearing a small accessory that made a very large impact.
That night, as she presented the award for Best Picture with her Cat on a Hot Tin Roof co-star Paul Newman, it wasn’t her fabulous jewelry, her legendary décolletage or those violet eyes that had people talking, but the red ribbon she wore on her white gown, bringing the world’s attention to the fight against AIDS.
“She wore it proudly and and she wore it the rest of her life,” says her granddaughter Laila Wilding, 45, the eldest daughter of Taylor’s son, »

The Lifetime biopic Michael Jackson: Searching for Neverland has found its lead in M.J. tribute artist, Navi, and he sat down with Et to talk about the upcoming project.
The Trinidad native has had numerous plastic surgery operations, changing his nose, cheekbones and chin just to look more like the late King of Pop.
Watch: Michael Jackson Is Getting the Lifetime Movie Treatment
"I used to work for him as a decoy, and I performed at his birthday parties," Navi told Et's Nischelle Turner. "Even when he went through the trials, I stood outside the courthouse and I stood there with a sign that said, 'Smooth but not a criminal.' To me it was important that I wanted Michael to know I believe in him."
The TV movie, based on the bestselling book Remember the Time, will focus on the last three years of Jackson's life, as told through the eyes of his two bodyguards »
In honour of what would have been screen legend Elizabeth Taylor’s 85th birthday on Monday, Feb. 27, the late star’s AIDS foundation has released a tribute video narrated by Miley Cyrus. Founded by Taylor in 1991, the Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation (Etaf) celebrates her legacy with the new video documenting Taylor’s time in Hollywood, to […] »

It didn't take long for audiences to get swept up in Netflix's decadent dramatization of Queen Elizabeth II's first few years on the throne, The Crown, and it's pretty obvious why. Although there are a few things in the hit series that didn't actually happen, it still captures the essence of what it was like for the young royal to take over for her father, King George VI, after his shocking death in 1952. With season one in the bag (which reportedly came at a $130 million price tag), it's time to look forward: when do we know about season two? The Main Cast Lead actress Claire Foy took home multiple best actress trophies this award season for her spot-on, layered performance as the queen, so it should come as no surprise that she's signed on for season two. She and costar Matt Smith, who plays Elizabeth's husband Prince Philip, are »

With the new release of Mildred Pierce, the Criterion Collection appears to be solidifying a trend over the past couple years of providing a showcase for some of the greatest female actors from Hollywood’s Golden Age. Since late 2014, stars like Claudette Colbert (It Happened One Night, The Palm Beach Story), Rita Hayworth (Gilda, Only Angels Have Wings) and Rosalind Russell (His Girl Friday) have made their first appearances in the Collection, in what can be considered career-defining roles. These additions seem to be addressing a notable blind spot for Criterion. As impressive as their reach has been in bringing many of the most iconic women from the past hundred years of world cinema to the forefront, the continuing absence of silver screen legends like Bette Davis, Olivia de Havilland, Greta Garbo and Elizabeth Taylor, just to name a few, seems like a lingering oversight, a problem yet to be »

Great horror cinema is so often about playing the long game, waiting out the slow burn, that it can be tricky to achieve in short form: A 20-minute runtime affords even the deftest filmmaker precious little room to nurture intrigue, ramp up tension and deliver a bone-deep payoff. Four talented female filmmakers give it their best shot in the polished portmanteau pic “Xx,” with predictably mixed results — though it says much about the difficulty of the proposal in the first place that the most satisfying entry in the quartet isn’t really a horror film at all. That’d be the comically antic contribution by cooler-than-thou musician-turned-filmmaker Annie Clark (better known in the media as St. Vincent), whose auspicious directorial presence alone adds a coat of cult potential to the project. Meanwhile, more experienced hands Karyn Kusama, Roxanne Benjamin and Jovanka Vuckovic turn in more traditional chillers in a range of registers, »

George Segal rode talent and a hot streak to the top of the movie heap from the mid-1960s into the 1980s. If you only know Segal for his popular TV series “Just Shoot Me” and “The Goldbergs,” here are crucial earlier roles to check out.
This was a break-out role for Segal, a prestigious WWII drama with a mostly British cast that included John Mills, Tom Courtenay, James Fox, Patrick O’Neal, and Denholm Elliott. Segal played a charismatically amoral American sharpie, scrambling to maintain his place at the top of the black-market heap in a Japanese prison camp.
Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? (1966), dir. Mike Nichols:
Segal earned his lone Oscar nomination for this role, in Nichols’ adaptation of Edward Albee’s stinging marital drama. He brought brains and vulnerability as a college professor who, with his mousy wife (Sandy Dennis »

Prior to 1999, the British Academy Film and Television Awards were seen as the poor, but perfectly respectable, country cousin of their high-wattage American brethren. There were a number of reasons for this, chief among them the four-month time lag between U.S. and U.K. release dates, which saw a bizarre hike in prestige releases during April, when the BAFTA ceremony was traditionally held.
Until 1997, the event also included an extensive roll of television awards, which made for a long night, with the top film awards inevitably going to the same films honored by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences two months earlier. The BAFTAs felt stale.
In 1999, however, the BAFTAs stepped up the glamour offensive. Elizabeth Taylor was honored with a BAFTA fellowship, presented by Michael Caine, while the likes of Gwyneth Paltrow, Cate Blanchett, and Christina Ricci walked the red carpet outside North London’s dowdy Business Design Centre. »

When it comes to the Manhattan Theatre Club’s upcoming production of Lillian Hellman’s The Little Foxes, which will see Laura Linney and Cynthia Nixon playing Regina Hubbard Giddens and Birdie Hubbard in repertory appearing opposite each other during every performance, it’s anybody’s guess at how exactly it’s going to come together. “It’s a big experiment for everybody,” says Linney, who actually suggested that she and Nixon rotate the roles and, admittedly, has no idea if it’s actually going to work. “I love that I have no idea.” For both actors, it’s quite possible the greatest thing about it.
“The bizarre thing is trying to find your own Regina and your own Birdie while the actress across from you is also trying to find it,” Nixon says, while adding that the whole concept is “very liberating.”
“I’m sure Cynthia and I are going to play both parts differently, and who »

The British Academy of Film and Television Arts has announced that legendary actor and filmmaker Mel Brooks is set to be honoured with the BAFTA Fellowship at the Ee British Academy Film Awards this Sunday, February 12th.

SAG-AFTRA is offering members delivery of residual payments through direct deposit for the first time, replacing paper residuals checks.
The performers union, which has about 160,000 members, announced Wednesday it has entered into a multiyear agreement with Exactuals, a Los Angeles-based payments software company, to deliver residuals payments through direct deposit. SAG-aftra said Exactuals will serve as a third-party broker to facilitate transmission of data and funds between the studios and payroll houses to SAG-aftra and its members.
Processing of funds will be handled by Exactuals through City National Bank which will electronically transfer funds to member accounts at any checking account at a domestic bank. The service will be free of charge.
“Our members asked for the direct deposit of residuals and we have heard them loud and clear,” said SAG-aftra President Gabrielle Carteris. “We have long been in discussions with employers to make this happen and are delighted to announce this partnership. »

Lea DeLaria is single and ready to mingle—a lot. "I'm the lesbian Jack Nicholson," the Orange Is the New Black star told me yesterday at the SAG Awards. "I'm dating a lot, dating a lot of young girls. That's where I am right now. "I'm not going to waste this fame," she added. "I'm going to get as many 20-something girls as I can get my hands on." DeLaria announced just three weeks ago that she and Chelsea Fairless had called it quits. DeLaria popped the question about two years ago. They revealed they were no longer together by posting a photo on Instagram of themselves with Michael Jackson and Elizabeth Taylor at Liza Minnelli's wedding to »

Judy Garland was just 16 when she starred in her breakout role, 1939’s The Wizard of Oz. At just 4 feet, 11½ inches, Garland had a cute, girl-next-door charm helped set her apart from her glamorous contemporaries like Elizabeth Taylor and Ava Gardner. But with success would come the need to maintain her youthful looks and thin frame — pressures from Hollywood studio MGM that would fuel the legendary songstress’ drug abuse and eventually lead to her death.
Now, more than four decades after an accidental drug overdose took her life at age 47, a new memoir about the late star pulls back the curtain on Garland’s demons. »
