'The Young Pope' Recap: No Church in the Wild

11 hours ago | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

"I don't know if you deserve me," the pontiff formerly known as Lenny Belardo tells the horrified crowd in St. Peter's Square at the end of his bonkers first homily. Neither do we, Lenny, neither do we. Two episodes in, and The Young Pope shines like a city on a hill – a beacon of madcap brilliance, savage humor, and go-for-broke filmmaking excess right when we need it most. It's a light in the darkness, even if it ends with its title character in a very dark place. We mean that both literally and metaphorically. »

Which Hollywood superstars have their own plane?

13 January 2017 2:00 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

So you’ve finally made it in the big time and you think to yourself, I now have a private island and yacht, but what else can I buy myself to implement my Hollywood status? Oh I know, I’ll buy myself a private plane. The quality of life is what separates a common man from celebrities and adding a jet to their collection is just an enhancement to their life quality and quite possibly their personality too.  A number of Hollywood superstars own a plane and maybe it’s just to show off that they can buy one and another annoying factor is that they don’t have to deal with any of the stressful parking that us ‘normal’ people have to endure. That said, I can’t promise you that you’ll be a Hollywood superstar anytime soon, but one thing I can promise you, is using sites like this http://www. »

Denzel Washington Interview: The Director Reveals How He Opened Up ‘Fences’

11 January 2017 8:56 AM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Ever since I first met Denzel Washington on the set of Spike Lee’s “Malcolm X,” I’ve felt comfortable with him. Maybe it’s because he and my mother grew up in the same working-class New York suburb, Mount Vernon. Fact is, I grew up in the film industry with Washington, along with Mel Gibson, Debra Winger, Bruce Willis, Kevin Costner, and John Travolta; we’re all close to the same age.

I know the way he swings his tall body into that loping, cocky walk. And it’s fun to watch him, in the green room at the Writers Guild, enthusiastically wave his hands around when he talks about directing. He’s in a good mood: His August Wilson film adaptation of “Fences” has been enthusiastically received, by critics, audiences and — perhaps most crucially for its Oscar chances — actors, landing the coveted SAG Ensemble nomination.

8 Disturbing Bombshells From Leah Remini's Scientology Documentary Series

11 January 2017 8:11 AM, PST | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Image Source: Getty / Noam Galai When you think of Scientology, a few people probably come to mind: Tom Cruise, John Travolta, and Leah Remini. While Cruise and Travolta are partly known for their unwavering devotion to the "church," Remini publicly split from Scientology in 2013. After having doubts about things the church was doing and questioning the church's leader, David Miscavige (which is apparently a big no-no), about the unknown whereabouts of his wife, the actress had had enough. In addition to speaking out about her experiences with interviews and a book, Remini decided to dive even further into uncovering the church's corrupt reality with her A&E documentary series, Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath. On the show, she travels around the country with Mike Rinder, Scientology's former senior executive and one of Miscavige's right-hand men, to talk to former church members about the horrors they allegedly endured over the »

From the very beginning, the Golden Globes were all about La La Land. Sunday night's awards show kicked off with an elaborate pre-taped musical number that was a recreation of the Lionsgate film’s opening song-and-dance, as host Jimmy Fallon navigated a red-carpet traffic jam with Lion’s Nicole Kidman, Game of ThronesKit Harington, the cast of Stranger Things and Courtney B. Vance, Sterling K. Brown, John Travolta and Sarah Paulson of The People v. O.J. Simpson. Some cameos were made in character — Westworld’s Evan Rachel Wood powered down in her blue dress, while the »

Exclusive: Jimmy Fallon on Golden Globes Teleprompter Fail and Mariah Carey Zinger: 'We'll Have a Drink Over This'

8 January 2017 9:59 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

"I was like, it's definitely live! It's definitely real!"

That's what host Jimmy Fallon said he was thinking when the teleprompter went out during his opening monologue at tonight's Golden Globes. "It's like, 'Ok...Justin? Where's Justin Timberlake? Please, Justin, help me out on this one, what do I do?'" Fallon told Et's Leanne Aguilera at NBCUniversal's after-party.

"I didn't memorize my monologue but I knew maybe the teleprompter might go out at one point, but I didn't imagine the first opening of the show," he explained, before joking, "If I have any problem in life, I'm like, 'Where's Justin Timberlake?' and he usually solves the problem. Which he did tonight as well."

And this movie continues to do well. Damien Chazelle, who is only 31 which is disgusting to fully comprehend, picks up the award. He also wrote Whiplash.

It was presented by Felicity Jones and Diego Luna, the Mexican actor who my mom recently referred to as “that French guy from Star Wars”. Fact!

Watch Jimmy Fallon's Hilarious 'La La Land' Golden Globes 2017 Opening

8 January 2017 5:37 PM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Jimmy Fallon parodied the expansively choreographed opening scene from acclaimed musical La La Land to kick off the 2017 Golden Globes. Stuck in daunting red carpet limousine traffic, the Globes/Tonight Show host sang, danced and mingled with a parade of A-list nominees, including Nicole Kidman, Amy Adams, John Travolta and Mr. Robot's Rami Malek.

The cast of Netflix sci-fi series Stranger Things were the scene-stealers: Millie Bobby Brown (Eleven) unleashed a visceral rap, backed by her kid cast mates, and Shannon Purser (Barb) arose from a pool to prove she's "still alive. »

Jimmy Fallon Pokes Fun at Trump As Technical Issues Force Him to Ad Lib During Golden Globes Opening Monologue

8 January 2017 5:36 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

It’s just another day of technical difficulties.

Not even an errant teleprompter could keep 74th annual Golden Globe Awards host Jimmy Fallon from zinging the President-elect and dancing his way through a La La Land tribute in the opening number and monologue.

Fallon kicked off the show in a limo line of stars, crooning rejiggered lyrics to the musical’s opening number “Another Day of Sun.” Everyone from Nicole Kidman and Amy Adams to Sterling K. Brown and John Travolta sang lines, poking fun at their own big- and small-screen nominated roles.

The pint-size stars of Stranger Things also helped, »

Golden Globes 2017: Jimmy Fallon’s Monologue Takes On Trump, Putin and ‘La La Land’

8 January 2017 5:27 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The 74th Golden Globe Awards kicked off with an extended “La La Land” parody that featured host Jimmy Fallon’s take on the opening number “Another Day of Sun,” “City of Stars” and the swooning “Planetarium.” The video included appearances by Justin Timberlake, Ryan Reynolds, Tina Fey, Nicole Kidman, Amy Adams, John Travolta, Kit Harington, Rami Malek, Evan Rachel Wood, Sarah Paulson, Sterling K. Brown, Courtney B. Vance and the kids from the “Stranger Things” cast performing a brief rap. It was written and directed by Dan Opsal, an Emmy and WGA-nominated writer for “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.”

The monologue proper was brief, but it took shots at President-Elect Donald Trump, O.J. Simpson and “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.” Live from The Beverly Hilton in California, Fallon initially stumbled when the teleprompter supposedly went down, deeming it the night’s “first Golden Globes moment,” before diving right »
