There were three losers and only one winner on The Voice‘s Season 8 finale — that is, if you chose to look at the Starbucks-sponsored plastic cup as half full.
If, however, like Blake, your glass had even a splash of moonshine left in it, maybe there were no losers at all.
The 50-year-old actress fuelled rumours that yet another spin-off film from the original HBO series is set to be made after posting a cryptic message on her Instagram account.
She wrote alongside an image of herself carrying a paper bag from department store Bloomingdales – which is known for being one of her character Carrie Bradshaw’s favourite shops – as onlookers took pictures: “Well. I guess the cat’s out of the (little brown) bag. As usual, we will keep you posted on every detail as we are able. I’m under strict gag order until then. Xx, Sj”

There's nothing like having the support of your friends during a big event. That must have been how Kristin Davis felt when Sarah Jessica Parker attended a film screening of her new documentary Gardeners of Eden in New York City Tuesday. Both Sex and the City alums looked gorgeous posing together for the cameras, but we wish that Kim Cattrall and Cynthia Nixon could have been there, too. Certainly with half of the women there it seems like it could be simple enough to get the other two for a full-blown reunion! Davis even told E! News exclusively that they are all interested! "I think we'd all like to do it again," Davis told E!'s Marc Malkin. "We want to do it!" Those comments »
Eli Wallach and Anne Jackson on the Oscars' Red Carpet Eli Wallach and Anne Jackson at the Academy Awards Eli Wallach and wife Anne Jackson are seen above arriving at the 2011 Academy Awards ceremony, held on Sunday, Feb. 27, at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood. The 95-year-old Wallach had received an Honorary Oscar at the Governors Awards in November 2010.

Delayed film debut The Actors Studio-trained Eli Wallach was to have made his film debut in Fred Zinnemann's Academy Award-winning 1953 blockbuster From Here to Eternity. Ultimately, however, Frank Sinatra – then a has-been following a string of box office duds – was cast for a pittance, getting beaten to a pulp by a pre-stardom Ernest Borgnine. For his bloodied efforts, Sinatra went on »

Plus comedies galore with Kim Cattrall in Sensitive Skin, baby business in The Delivery Man and accidental insemination in Jane The Virgin
How has Islamic State come to control so much territory? Investigative reporter Peter Taylor follows the money, charting how the group gathers funds from oil sales, ransoms, extortion and selling permits to loot treasures from archaeological sites. Featuring an interview with captured Isis leader Abu Hajjar and, depressingly, much about how and why the Us detention centre Camp Bucca effectively became a recruitment and even a training centre for jihadists.

Appearing on The Graham Norton Show, she said: "It was quite a strange thing. It was the first time I'd been offered something like that on Twitter. I tweet all the time and Emma Freud tweeted me and asked me to do the Bake Off.
"She threw down the gauntlet and I said, 'Yes'. I'll just take a lot of wine and have fun!"
When reminded that judge Paul Hollywood is a fellow Liverpudlian, she replied: "I can make Scouse with him."
Meanwhile, the actress also spoke about new TV series Sensitive Skin, which is currently airing on Sky Arts.

You don’t come across big international remakes of UK dramas so often that you’d expect two of them to turn up on the same night – never mind a scheduling clash. Yet here we are at 10pm: Gracepoint, the American overhaul of Broadchurch, up against a revisiting of Sensitive Skin, the acclaimed Hugo Blick dramedy starring Joanna Lumley, which first aired 10 years ago.
In its Canadian remake (Sky Arts), it is Kim Cattrall who plays Davina, a successful fiftysomething with a long marriage, grownup son, vintage Jag and fear of losing her youth. Cattrall, in her first major TV role since Sex and the City, is not exactly a revelation – her portrayal of Samantha always exceeded the limits of the show’s scripts – but »

Happy Birthday, Sarah Jessica Parker! Can you believe the Sex and the City star is ringing in the big 5-0 today? It seems as if no time has passed since the actress stole our hearts on the hit HBO series, which aired from 1998 to 2004 and is currently in syndication on E!. From Carrie Bradshaw's (Parker) rollercoaster relationship with Mr. Big (Chris Noth) to her unbreakable friendships with Charlotte (Kristin Davis), Samantha (Kim Cattrall) and Miranda (Cynthia Nixon), Sex and the City taught us many life lessons (how else would we know to drink cosmos and wear Manolos?) and will always have a special place in our hearts.

Sarah Jessica Parker, the Emmy-winning actress and fashion maven, is 50 today. If you watched Carrie Bradshaw strut her way through her late '30s on HBO's "Sex and the City" and deal with the pangs of married life in the two subsequent feature releases, Sjp's 50th birthday feels like kind of a big deal. In your best Kim Cattrall voice, you coo, "I'll drink to that!" To celebrate, let's pick Sjp's most underrated role. My pick is below. "L.A. Story." 1991. Not nearly as watched anymore as it should be. Sjp's character SanDeE is one-of-a-kind, a loopy wannabe model whose space cadet antics are at once frustrating and lovable. The explanation for the curious spelling of her name is priceless, and Steve Martin (naturally) responds quizzically. What's your favorite Sjp role? »

In a new interview with The Guardian, the 32-year-old Irish actor looks back on the characters he's played -- specifically Paul Spector, the psychopathic murderer in the BBC2 series The Fall, and of course, Christian Grey -- and admits it "worries" him.
"I consider myself quite light-hearted, pretty easy-going, and I keep playing sick psychopath bastards!" he says. "It kinda worries me sometimes how comfortable I am in that zone."

To this day, the handsome former Calvin Klein underwear model still can't believe he's in the much talked-about adaptation of E.L. James' bestselling erotic novel.
"There are times when I’ll be like: 'Huh, someone made a Fifty Shades movie, that's funny.' And then I’ll be like: 'Wait, I'm the guy?!'" he shares.
Clearly, Dornan »
The film adaptation of Fifty Shades Of Grey has inspired its fair share of loud detractors. Some thought it was too raunchy, some didn.t think it was raunchy enough, and then there were other moviegoers who just thought that it was a tedious melodrama packed with hammy acting, and a weak plot that cynically exploited hollow sex appeal to generate hundreds of millions of dollars at the box office. As it turns out, one of the film.s harshest critics is Sex and the City actress Kim Cattrall, who has not only claimed not to not have interest in seeing the film, but has blamed that lack of interest on male lead Jamie Dornan. The actress, whose Samantha character in the aforementioned beloved television series and films was particularly well-versed in the act of love-making, recently told the Independent that director Sam Taylor-Johnson.s recent adaptation of E.L. »
She doesn't find former Calvin Klein underwear model Jamie Dornan, who plays the super-hot S&M-loving billionaire Christian Grey in the film, attractive.
"Maybe it's my age, but he doesn't look like a man to me," the former Sex and the City star, 58, tells The Independent bluntly. "He looks like a young boy. I like men to look like men. I saw the preview and you know they say in three seconds you can tell if you find someone attractive or not? Well, I just thought, 'No.'"

Though perhaps if the film had allowed the 32-year-old Dornan keep his scruff, she might have changed her mind!
Dornan himself addressed his boyish looks in a recent interview with Glamour for their March 2015 issue, when he admitted »
Rugged Brendan Gleeson on the other hand...
The Sex and the City star told the Irish Independent: "Maybe it's my age, but [Dornan] doesn't look like a man to me.
"He looks like a young boy. I like men to look like men. I saw the preview and you know they say in three seconds you can tell if you find someone attractive or not? Well, I just thought, 'No'."
But an actor fulfilling her red-blooded manly request is Calvary actor Gleeson.
"Now, if he were Brendan Gleeson - well, there's a little something going on there, you know, the twinkle in the eye..."
On a rumoured third Sex and the City movie, she insisted: "Well, Sam is behind me in the sense that it's over. »
Everyone is entitled to their own opinion! Kim Cattrall revealed to The Independent that she doesn’t find Jamie Dornan hot. "Maybe it's my age, but he doesn't look like a man to me," the 58-year-old admitted. "He looks like a young boy. I like men to look like men.” In fact, she has no desire to see the actor’s steamy S&M flick Fifty Shades of Grey. “I saw the preview and you know they say in three seconds you can tell if you find someone attractive or not?

Samantha Jones has always been one of a kind, although we have to say this geniuinely surprised us. Sex and the City star Kim Cattrall, whose onscreen character was known for her insatiable sexual appetite, will officially shock her fans when they read this next statement: She doesn't find Jamie Dornan attractive. That's right, Samantha Jones doesn't find Christian Grey smokin' hot. "Maybe it's my age, but he doesn't look like a man to me," she tells The Independent. "He looks like a young boy. I like men to look like men." She is so unimpressed with him and his looks, in fact, that she won't even go see Fifty Shades of Grey! "I saw the preview and »

No one loves a great scene more than the person who first dreamed it up -- the writer. We're asking iconic shows' creators and writers to tell ETonline all about the moment on their series that they most cherished getting to see make it from script to screen.
“You have to put yourself in the mindset of the late-‘90s, where this sort of thing was not done on television,” Sex and the City creator Darren Star tells ETonline of the HBO comedy that first premiered in 1998 and would eventually run six seasons, spawn two films, and make Carrie Bradshaw a household name.
The show’s frankness and humor about sex was both iconic and revolutionary. Yet, in the first season, hardly anyone watched the adventures of Carrie (Sarah Jessica Parker), Charlotte (Kristin Davis), Miranda (Cynthia Nixon), and Samantha (Kim Cattrall).
That means not many people »
Christina Aguilera and Jimmy Fallon engaged in a game of Wheel of Musical Impressions this week, which was really just a very important reminder that Xtina knows what she’s doing, vocally. Fallon’s Bowie and Michael McDonald impressions were fine, but Aguilera’s spot-on Cher, pitch-perfect Shakira, and “how often do we really see Britney and Christina in the same room together, really” eerie Britney Spears blew us away. Elsewhere on late night, the singer revisited another classic impression – her impeccable Kim Cattrall. Is she vying for another SNL hosting gig?
