22 hours ago | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

There was a game last night between two teams, and one of them took home a trophy, but the real winners of Super Bowl Sunday were the advertisers, whose various multi-million dollar campaigns arguably dominated the social media sphere more than the sports match.

Super Bowl Review: Madison Avenue Filled Big Game With Small Ads

7 February 2016 7:32 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Madison Avenue brought a knife to a gun fight Sunday evening, loading the fiftieth Super Bowl with advertisements for the splintered crowds of the Internet and social media rather than being tailored for TV’s biggest annual event.

Viewers were bombarded with commercials that were fast-paced and celebrity-laced, offered by Yum Brands’ Taco Bell, SquareSpace, PepsiCo’s Mtn Dew and even Advil, backed by the conservative pharmaceutical manufacturer, Pfizer. In general, the commercials were so frenetic they reminded one of those animated Japanese TV shows that give young children seizures.

There was an anthropomorphic creature that was part baby, part dog and part monkey, and a young outdoor aficionado who wanted to get to first base with a local rodent. Dollar Shave Club trotted out an ad that looked as if it were made for a dollar (it was crafted internally by the company’s CEO, who had a role »

Super Bowl Ad Review: Heinz Spot Tastes Like The Real Deal

6 February 2016 6:30 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Here’s a Super Bowl ad with a lot of meat on it.  It’s a spot for ketchup.

You won’t find Alec Baldwin, Christopher Walken, Amy Schumer or any of the other handfuls of famous folk slated to show up this Sunday night appearing on behalf of Heinz barbecue sauce and a range of the company’s other condiments. All you’ll see is a commercial that truly belongs in the Big Game.

Heinz seems to recall a time when Super Bowl ads dazzled, grabbed the viewer’s attention, and then told them something about the product they were trying to sell. It’s a strange notion in 2016, to be sure, when so many ads push consumers to go and post something about what they just saw on Twitter. Having demonstrated to the chief financial officer that someone cared enough about the ad to hack out 140 characters about it, »

Thn’s top five Leonardo DiCaprio performances

28 January 2016 4:00 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Leonardo DiCaprio has had one of the most interesting and diverse careers in Hollywood. After all, not many actors can claim to have worked with James Cameron, Martin Scorsese, Quentin Tarantino and Christopher Nolan. On top of that, he has starred in a groundbreaking Shakespeare adaptation, an acclaimed summer blockbuster and the 12 year record holder as the highest grossing film of all time.

Now with the release of The Revenant, it’s the perfect time to celebrate DiCaprio’s many standout performances throughout his career.

Check out my top 5 performances from DiCaprio below and pray that he finally receives his Academy Award next month:

5. Inception (2010)

Before 2010 DiCaprio had carefully avoided both action blockbusters (no Titanic doesn’t count) and science fiction films. However, after a little known director called Christopher Nolan broke box office records with the universally acclaimed film The Dark Knight, he apparently changed his mind.

Amazon Will Join Super Bowl Ad Roster For The First Time

27 January 2016 7:12 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Amazon will take to the Super Bowl for the first time to tout the advantages of using “Alexa,” the personal Amazon Echo digital assistant it unveiled in 2014 – and appears to have enlisted actor Alec Baldwin and football great Dan Marino to help it achieve its goals.

A “teaser” released Wednesday shows Baldwin and Marino trying to plan a blowout Super Bowl party. The two agree that a “snack stadium” would help the shindig stand apart from the rest. “I’m going to need an architect, a five-star chef….” Baldwin muses as Marino takes notes.

A spokeswoman for a public-relations agency representing Amazon declined to specify when during Super Bowl 50 the ad would run or what advertising agency or agencies was involved in its creation.

Amazon is the latest member of a class of rookie Super Bowl sponsors that has decidedly more class and blue-chip reputation than those in past games. »

TV Review: ‘American Masters: Mike Nichols’

26 January 2016 8:00 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

A loving tribute presented largely in his own words, the “American Masters” documentary “Mike Nichols” is directed by his one-time collaborator Elaine May, and drawn extensively from producer Julian Schlossberg’s candid interview with the director conducted for the film. While an hour is hardly sufficient to fully do justice to Nichols’ rich stage, film and performing resume, it’s enough to provide ample insight into why so many speak of the artist – who died in 2014, at the age of 83 – so reverently and affectionately.

Nichols talks about his humble beginnings – coming to America as a German refugee in the wake of World War II – and early schooling before his move into performing with May, which, he notes, earned him more universal accolades than anything he had done since. (There’s a hilarious clip of the two of them spoofing a Hollywood awards show, with her singling him out from the stage for his utter mediocrity. »

Watch 7 Movie Stars Do Hilarious Robert De Niro Impressions

With Dirty Grandpa, we may have officially reached the point where a Robert De Niro impression is guaranteed to be more enjoyable than a Robert De Niro performance. Fortunately, the indisputable fact that he's one of the most iconic actors in movie history means that there's a ton of imitators out there.

If the man behind Travis Bickle, Jake La Motta and young Vito Corleone isn't quite as common a target as Christopher Walken or Al Pacino, that's only because he's a little bit harder to get right (watch the »
