'The Graduate' Cast: Where Are They Now?

27 December 2012 9:34 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Forty-five years later, it's hard to appreciate what a revolutionary film "The Graduate" was. Not just for its depiction of driftless youth and the sexual revolution, but that it starred a regular guy like Dustin Hoffman. As NY Times critic A.O. Scott said in 2009, casting Hoffman "helped redefine what kind of person could become a movie star." However, the movie could have been very different: Originally, the role of college graduate Ben Braddock was going to go to Robert Redford (Hoffman's future "All the President's Men" co-star), and Candice Bergen (who'd star in Nichols' 1971 film "Carnal Knowledge") was going to play Elaine. And what about Doris Day as Mrs. Robinson and Marlon Brando as Mr. Robinson? We can't begin to picture that. Scott argues that the film "never felt dated," although Roger Ebert wrote in 1997 that its "time has passed." Either way, it's been a major influence on countless movies, »

Hate-Watching "Saturday Night Live"

21 November 2012 11:03 AM, PST | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

Can everyone in the room who still watches Saturday Night Live raise their hand?

Okay, you two - now put your hand down if you genuinely enjoy it. Now put your hand down if you use SNL to put your kids, partner, or cockatiel to sleep.

Now stop pretending that anyone else in the room had their hand up to begin with, Brian, because you are seriously the last idiot in God's green acres who still gives SNL a shot the two or three times a year that it's not a Justin Timberlake rerun.

Saturday Night Live has become that distant aunt that the whole family pretends is doing just fine even though she is hoarding cats and crafting an army of creepy pantyhose children because no one wants to be saddled with the responsibility of actually having to do anything about her.  It hasn't really been truly amazing television »

Here’s a tip: Only mention you’re making a list of Top 12 Unexpected Yet Essential Lesbian TV Shows if you have about three hours to kill. Nothing like the topic to make a dyke nostalgic. And opinionated. Yes, I know you loved The Facts of Life. Let me guess, Jo, right? Motorcycle jacket, tough attitude, she was everything you only sort hoped you’d become. Cagney and Lacey? Before my time, but yeah, I’ve thought of it--two deep-voiced women, lots of guns. And Xena, of course. My girlfriend still loves to wax poetic about her weekly ritual: riding her bike to a friend’s apartment to watch that show. Once, clad in pajama bottoms and a bandana, she was shot at, her headwear mistaken for gang paraphernalia, which it kind of was — Lesbian For Life, »

'The Daily Show' should bow out of Emmys race [Poll results]

24 August 2012 4:28 AM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

We asked if nine-time Variety Series champ "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart' should drop out of this Emmy race and 55% of you said yes. (For those who haven't voted, the poll is at the bottom of this post.) Gold Derby's Experts, Editors and Users all expect "The Daily Show" to win Best Variety Series for the 10th year in a row. It has odds of 4 to 7, which put it well ahead of its Comedy Central lead-out "The Colbert Report" at 11 to 2. There is plenty of precedent for bowing out of Emmy contention. After winning five Comedy Actress awards for "Murphy Brown," Candice Bergen stopped competing. And three-time Drama Actor winner Bill Cosby ("I Spy," 1966-1968) never put his name forward for his huge hit "The Cosby Show." Over at the Daytime Emmys, talk show hosts Oprah Winfrey and Ellen DeGeneres both stopped competing after winning the hosting award numerous tim. »

Should 'The Daily Show' bow out of the Emmy race?

21 August 2012 2:07 PM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

In past years, repeat Emmy champs like Oprah Winfrey, Ellen DeGeneres, Candice Bergen and Bill Cosby pulled themselves or their programs out of the derby in order to share the glory with other contenders. Jon Stewart's "The Daily Show" has hogged Best Variety Series for the past nine years and is heavily favored by Gold Derby's Experts, Editors and Users to triumph again. Is it time for "The Daily Show" to step aside ... and let, perhaps, its spinoff show "The Colbert Report" or another worthy rival win?

Can Julia Louis-Dreyfus break curse of Comedy Actress Emmy winners?

21 August 2012 8:31 AM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

The Comedy Actress race used to be won by the same leading lady repeatedly. Mary Tyler Moore took home three Emmys in the 1970s for her self-titled show as did "All in the Family" star Jean Stapleton. More recently, Candice Bergen collected five trophies for "Murphy Brown" beginning in 1989 and Helen Hunt ("Mad About You") then won four straight. However, after Patricia Heaton picked up two in a row for "Everybody Loves Raymond" in 2000 and 2001, there has been a different winner each year. The first of these was Jennifer Aniston ("Friends," 2002) while the most recent was Melissa McCarthy ("Mike & Molly"). To see all the single ladies in between View Gallery Among those McCarthy defeated last year was 2007 winner Tina Fey ("30 Rock") and defending 2010 champ Edie Falco ("Nurse Jackie"). All three of them are back in the running this year but rank well behind the »

Marvin Hamlisch Funeral: Bill Clinton, Liza Minnelli, Richard Gere and Many Others Mourn Broadway Composer

14 August 2012 1:57 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Marvin Hamlisch was one of a kind—and that's the way his friends and family remembered him. The legendary composer's funeral was held today in New York City, and judging by the celebs in attendance—including President Bill Clinton, Liza Minnelli, Richard Gere, Candice Bergen, Ann-Margret, Tony Danza, Diane Sawyer and her director husband Mike Nichols—it was one heck of a sendoff. Hamlisch passed away on Aug. 6 in Los Angeles after a brief illness. He was 68. Per Showbiz411, among other Broadway luminaries who paid their last respects at the service held at the Upper East Side's Temple Emanuel were Brian Stokes Mitchell, Kelly Bishop and Priscilla Lopez, stars of A Chorus Line, »

Blu-ray Review: "Bite The Bullet" (1975) Starring Gene Hackman, James Coburn And Candice Bergen

4 August 2012 3:49 PM, PDT | | See recent CinemaRetro news »

By Lee Pfeiffer

Twilight Time has released the 1975 gut-busting Western Bite the Bullet as a limited edition (3,000 units)  Blu-ray edition. The film, directed by Richard Brooks (one of the most truly macho filmmakers of his day) centers on a disparate group of cowboys who are competing in a 700 miles endurance horse race in hopes of winning the $2,000 prize. I saw the film when it was first released but it made no impression on me whatsoever. Thus, watching it on Blu-ray afforded me the opportunity to re-evaluate a movie that I remembered literally nothing about. Maybe it's just the wisdom that comes with age or the fact that we can't take for granted films boasting this type of cast, but this time around I really enjoyed Bite the Bullet. This is the type of Western that was produced by studios on a routine basis. Nowadays, however, good Westerns are hard to »

Charlize Theron, Halle Berry and Cameron Diaz: Models who've turned actress

30 July 2012 2:00 PM, PDT | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

Candice Bergen: With several different careers to her credit, modeling was one of them for this multiple Emmy winner for "Murphy Brown," seen most recently on Broadway in "The Best Man."

Ali MacGraw: Her movie output wasn't enormous, but "Love Story" alone was a hugely significant credit for her.

Cybill Shepherd: One of the most stunning transitions from model to actress was made by this "Moonlighting" star in her iconic screen debut, "The Last Picture Show."

Lauren Hutton: "American Gigolo" cemented her transition from someone who posed for the cameras into someone who truly acted for them.

Lois Chiles: Roles that relied largely on her beauty ("The Way We Were," "Moonraker") led to her deeper acting ("Broadcast News," "Say Anything ... .")

Brooke Shields: A novelty as an actress when she made "Pretty Baby" and "Endless Love," one of the most popular teen models ever became »

In Memory of Ernest Borgnine, 5 Living 90+ Year-Old Oscar Winners and Why They Rule

9 July 2012 10:59 AM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

I hate when legends pass away, and yesterday delivered us a toughy: Ernest Borgnine, who won the Best Actor Oscar for 1955's Marty (delivered by Miss Grace Kelly!) and charmed us on McHale's Navy, died at 95. Now the oldest living Best Actor is the noble and towering Sidney Poitier, who was born over 10 years after Borgnine. While our octagenarian Oscar winners deserve the utmost reverence, there's something downright superhuman about the nonagenarian awardees, if I do say so myself. Today, in honor of Borgnine, we're toasting five such winners who are alive, kicking, and ruling. Just start applauding now and don't stop until the end of the post.

1. Luise Rainer (aged 102)

Won: Best Actress (twice) for 1936's The Great Ziegfeld and 1937's The Good Earth

Why She Rules: Rainer is a German-Austrian actress who walked away with her first Oscar -- a Best Actress win in the first year Best »

Emmys: Unfunny Comedies?

20 June 2012 12:30 PM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Ray Richmond is a contributor to AwardsLine It was in 2010 that Edie Falco caused something of a stir at the Emmy Awards when – after winning the lead comedy actress Emmy for Showtime’s Nurse Jackie – she began her acceptance speech, “Oh this is just the most ridiculous thing that has ever happened in the history of this lovely awards show. Thank you so much. I’m not funny!” No one seemed to think that Falco was ungrateful so much as genuinely flabbergasted. And those who were regular watchers of her show may have agreed with her, underscoring how the definition of an Emmy-worthy comedic actress had so changed since the days of Mary Tyler Moore (a six-time winner in the category divided between The Dick Van Dyke Show and The Mary Tyler Moore Show), Candice Bergen (who won for Murphy Brown five times) and even Helen Hunt (a four-time victor »

Tony Awards on CBS tonight… and the winners are…

10 June 2012 11:32 AM, PDT | | See recent news » Tonight’s Tony Awards on CBS may turn out to be a big ratings winner. For once, the Tonys have clear sailing all night with very little real competition on the regular broadcast networks. Almost everything else on the tube tonight is a repeat–from “American’s Got Talent” to “The Simpsons.”

Everything on Fox is a repeat. ABC has two first run reality shows–”Secret Millionaire” and “Exteme Makeover.” NBC has just “Dateline” that’s new and then the “Talent” repeat. The only real competition, off network, on cable, will be “True Blood” on HBO and “Mad Men” on AMC. So it’s up to Neil Patrick Harris and the Tony producers–the ball is in their court. They’ll have a slew of stars presenting and performing, and hopefully enough to keep viewers who dip in to see “Once” go up against “Newsies” for Best Musical »
