Celebrate Emma Roberts' 25th Birthday With Her Best Style Moments—Plus an Embarrassing One to Grow On

8 hours ago | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Happy birthday, Emma Roberts!  The stunning blonde is turning 25 today, meaning it's been 15 years since the actress got her big break at just 10 years old, playing Johnny Depp's daughter in Blow. And from her days as a child star to now, Roberts has done quite an exceptional job at the family business (Dad's Eric Roberts and her aunt, in case you didn't know, is Julia Roberts), starring most recently as the painfully hilarious Chanel Oberlin in Scream Queens and changing roles with ease on different seasons of American Horror Story.  But rewind quite a few years and the birthday girl was not quite the red carpet stunner she is today.  Yep, that's »

All Hail the Scream Queen! Look Back on Emma Roberts's Hollywood Evolution

21 hours ago | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Emma Roberts freaked all of us out during the first season of Scream Queens, but before she was cast as the downright evil queen bee Chanel Oberlin, Emma was just a little girl from a big Hollywood family, growing up in front of the cameras. Emma is the daughter of actor Eric Roberts and the niece of Oscar winner Julia Roberts; she made her big-screen debut playing Johnny Depp's daughter in 2001's Blow and became the star of the Nickelodeon show Unfabulous three years later. Things came full circle for Emma when she starred with her aunt Julia in the 2010 movie Valentine's Day and went on to be featured in two seasons of American Horror Story (she's also slated to pop up in Hotel). As one of creator Ryan Murphy's TV darlings - and with her hilarious recent role on Scream Queens - we wouldn't be surprised if »

29 January 2016 5:27 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

At the end of every year, The Harris Poll conducts a nationwide survey of American moviegoers to find out which movie stars are the most beloved. This year, they polled 2,252 U.S. adults between December 9 and December 14 to determine America's Favorite Movie Star, which was won by Bridge of Spies star Tom Hanks. This is the fifth time he has taken the top spot, following wins in 2002, 2004, 2005 and 2013. He also jumped up four spots from last year, when he took the #5 spot.

Scores of ladies show up in in beautiful, incredibly expensive gowns designed specifically for the event. When Julia Roberts won in 2001 for “Erin Brockovich,” she rocked a black and white Valentino gown. Lupita Nyong’o stunned everyone with her blue Prada dress almost as much as she stunned them with her heartbreaking portrayal of the slave Patsy in “12 Years a Slave,” which won her an Oscar in 2014.

28 January 2016 6:00 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

20 years ago today, NBC aired “The One After the Superbowl,” the mega-episode of “Friends” packed with famous guest stars. The two-part episode had a massive lead-in from the Cowboys vs. Steelers game, even more than usual for post-Super Bowl programming — that game broke the record for most-watched sporting event ever on American television. The star-studded lineup of visitors to “Friends” was: Julia Roberts, Brooke Shields, Chris Isaak, Jean-Claude Van Damme, Fred Willard, and Dan Castellaneta. Roberts played Susie, Chandler’s elementary school classmate. Chandler eagerly agrees to go on a date with her, only to find out that the date was part of Susie’s plot for revenge to get back at Chandler for a prank he played on her in the 4th grade. “That was in the 4th grade! How could you still be upset about that?” Chandler exclaimed upon realizing what this was all about — as he stood »

When it comes to the highly anticipated series American Crime Story: The People vs O.J. Simpson, this is one surprise we didn't see coming. Asked whether or not he discouraged the actors from reaching out to their real-life counterparts, American Crime Story director Ryan Murphy said simply, "No." "I referenced Julia Roberts, who's a friend of mine, and I asked her about it," Murphy told reporters at the FX Television Critics Association Winter Press Tour on Saturday in Pasadena, California.

What the Critics’ Choice Awards Can Tell Us About Oscar

18 January 2016 6:00 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Patrick Shanley

Managing Editor

The Broadcast Film Critics Association handed out their Critics’ Choice Awards last evening in Los Angeles and is the first awards ceremony since the Academy released their official nominations last Thursday.

Those looking to the Critics’ Choice Awards in hopes of fleshing out their Oscar predictions will notice a few differences between last week’s Golden Globes and Sunday’s awards in the major categories. Most notably is the fact that Spotlight won best picture after being entirely shut out by the HFPA at the Globes.

Leonardo DiCaprio (The Revenant), Sylvester Stallone (Creed), and Brie Larson (Room) all repeated their Globes success with acting wins, but Swedish actress Alicia Vikander (The Danish Girl) took home the best supporting actress award in lieu of Kate Winslet’s (Steve Jobs) win the week before.

Mad Max: Fury Road director George Miller took home the night’s best director award, »

‘People v. O.J. Simpson’: Cuba Gooding Jr. Calls It ‘Hardest Character I’ve Ever Played’

16 January 2016 5:44 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

One of the most highly anticipated series of the new season is FX’s “The People v. Oj Simpson: American Crime Story,” the re-telling of the trial of O.J. Simpson, based on the book “The Run for His Life” by Jeffrey Toobin. The cast spoke poignantly about the challenge of bringing the real people to life in a panel Saturday at the Television Critics Assn. press tour in Pasadena, Calif.

“It’s the hardest character I’ve ever played,” said Cuba Gooding Jr., who portrays O.J. Simpson. “It was six months of an emotional roller coaster.”

He said, though, he had no desire to meet the man himself, given that he’s playing him as he was in 1994 — “charismatic, flamboyant, braggadocious, egotistical” — and not as he is today. “I had no desire to visit him in his present condition being incarcerated, being a shell of a man,” he said. “I »
