Yes, HBO's Big Little Lies has stars Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman, Laura Dern, Adam Scott, Alexander Skarsgard, Shailene Woodley, James Tupper and Zoe Kravitz, but there's one character that emerged from the show's premiere and completely stole the show: Scott's beard.

Viewers may have tuned in to Sunday’s premiere of Big Little Lies on HBO for the all-star cast, which includes Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman, and Shailene Woodley, but the series’ surprise breakout isn’t a character, it’s the stunning settings.
The show, based on Australian writer Liane Moriarty’s bestseller, is set on California’s picturesque Monterey Peninsula, and the well-to-do characters, including Witherspoon’s professional pot stirrer, Madeline Martha Mackenzie, Kidman’s lawyer-turned-mom, Celeste Wright, and Laura Dern‘s high-powered exec, Renata Klein, have a truly stunning real estate portfolio between them.

With Nicole Kidman returning to the Oscars this weekend as a nominee, here's Abstew on a handful of roles for which Oscar did not recognize her...
When I was a child there was an Oscar almanac that I would consult for my Oscar obsession (this was long before the days of the internet). The list of actors with multiple nominations didn't begin unless the actor had 5 nominations or more. Ever since then I've had it in my head that 5 is the magical number when it comes to Oscar; a sign of a better actor, showing that their body of work over the years is worth recognition, rather than the "one and done" that so many actors face. Since Nicole Kidman has always been one of my favorites, I've thought it odd that she's been nominated a relatively low number of times compared to the quality she produces. Certainly she ranks with Kate and Cate, »
The Oscars is one of the biggest nights in film — and fashion. In anticipation of seeing the hottest stars in Hollywood dressed in their best gowns of the year on Sunday’s red carpet, Fashion Police‘s Melissa Rivers is opening up about whose outfit her mother, late fashion critic Joan Rivers, would have been looking forward to the most.
“She was always a huge Nicole Kidman fan,” Rivers tells People Now in the video above. “She would always look for her,” she shares, adding that Cate Blanchett and Natalie Portman were also standout style stars for her late mom. »

Nicole Kidman is drawing fire from a tabloid over claims that she’s underweight and struggling with an eating disorder, but her sexy glam shots in the latest issue of The Edit magazine, suggest that she’s as healthy as ever. The National Enquirer, which has a hit or miss reputation for celebrity news, has been dogging Kidman lately with sketchy stories mostly involving her marriage to Australian singer Keith Urban. ...Read More »

We've made predictions about who would get nominated for an Oscar and who would win the awards leading up to the Oscars. We've seen the campaigning and the controversy and some damn fine movies in between, too. Now that Academy voting has officially ended, we present our final predictions for who will win -- as well as who we think really should win.
Who Should Win: La La Land
Who Will Win: La La Land
Despite plenty of fine nominees (Arrival! Hidden Figures! Manchester by the Sea!), the race for Best Picture was always between La La Land and Moonlight. Neither is perfect, but you could reasonably call either the year's Best Picture. Still, if history is any indication, La La Land's record amount of nominations will guarantee it takes home the night's top honor.
From a rape victim in “Elle” to a crack-addicted mother in “Moonlight,” this year’s nominated female roles are confronting, arresting, and varied. The same can be said for the actresses who play them, who choose to lead, rather than follow, with their choices in both film and fashion.
Viola Davis made a pointed statement on the Golden Globes red carpet. “The bright yellow was a symbol of hope and optimism,” says stylist Elizabeth Stewart of Davis’ Michael Kors gown. “It was very intentional. It feels like we’re living in dark times, and we’ve been choosing colors and dresses that symbolize hope.”
Nicole Kidman, too, is not one to shy from a bold choice. Twenty years after her chartreuse Dior catapulted her to the top of the best-dressed list, the “Lion” nominee had no hesitation about the divisive Gucci she wore to the SAG Awards. “I fell in love with the dress, »

Now that the ballots are en route to the 89th Academy Awards, it is time for us to predict who will be the big winners! Damien Chazelle.s .La La Land. dominated the nominations with 14 nods but will it shine on Oscar night at the city of stars? I.m predicting that the romance musical will take home 11 awards including Best Picture! The musical will only lose in the actor (sorry Ryan Gosling), original screenplay, and to its own .Audition. in the original song categories.
And you know why .La La Land. will win big? Because when the country is in turmoil, popular culture swings to the opposite way. And the film, with its sweet rose-colored palette and fancy production numbers made us all happy. And Hollywood wants us all happy.
We.ll find out all the happy Oscar winners on Sunday at 5 p.m. Join me on my Facebook page, »
With the Oscars coming up on Sunday, Et is looking back at some of the proud mamas who have rocked baby bumps at Hollywood's biggest awards show.
Portman was pregnant with her first child, son Aleph, when she won the Best Actress award for Black Swan in 2011. This year, she could win her second Oscar while pregnant with baby No. 2.
The Scandal star glowed as she made her way down the red carpet at the 2014 Oscars, cradling the baby bump from her first child, Isabelle.
"Beware of the pregnant woman about to give birth," the actress quipped to Et from the 2008 Oscars red carpet, as she was expecting baby No. 3.
Streep was nominated for her fourth Academy Award and expecting her second »

La La Land may be the musical creating the most buzz at this year’s Academy Awards, but outside the Dolby Theatre, the weather is predicted to make it look more like Singin’ in the Rain.
In response to the National Weather Service‘s forecast of storms hitting the Los Angeles area on Oscar Sunday, crews have built a rain structure to keep the night’s movie stars and guests dry on the red carpet.
In addition to the giant tent-like formation, hundreds of feet of plastic have also been used to protect the walkway where celebrities will be photographed »

And the Oscar for most nominations goes to…
Sound mixer Kevin O’Connell, who has worked on films such as Top Gun and Transformers, has a rather bittersweet distinction in Hollywood — he holds the record for the most Academy Award nominations without a single win.
After 21 nominations spanning 33 years — his first coming in 1984 for the classic tearjerker Terms of Endearment — O’Connell is hoping to hear his name called for Mel Gibson‘s directorial comeback Hacksaw Ridge at this year’s Oscars. However, he knows the competition is tough.
“I think we have a better shot in years past,” he recently told NBC News. »

Sue Brierley, with her son Saroo Brierley, joined me for a conversation that led us to memories of their first meeting, creating a bond, Lion the film, adoption laws in Australia, and Saroo meeting his biological mother after 25 years of separation.

Even Hollywood’s finest have to start somewhere. For all the critical praise heaped onto an actor, there’s always at least one role buried in their filmography that the stars would rather forget.
