We—like most of Hollywood—are over extreme nail art. But in Minnie Driver's case we're about to make an exception. Because the Behind the Lights star just posted what could easily be the manicure of the year. Yesterday, the actress shared a close-up of her four-finger tribute to…Sade! Yes, itty bitty photos of the queen of cool and singer of "By Your Side," "No Ordinary Love," and "Kiss of Life" adorned Driver's digits. The image used for the nail decals was from a shoot with photographer David Montgomery in 1980. In it, the crooner rocks a denim shirt, gold hoop earrings, red lipstick and an over-the-shoulder braid—Aka classic Sade style.  "#Tbt »

NBC Cuts Down About a Boy Second Season Order

7 January 2015 3:24 PM, PST | Boomtron | See recent Boomtron news »

NBC’s love of Minnie Driver’s About a Boy is going down hill. The series that follows a story of a boy who befriends a male neighbor who teaches him the way. Now it seems that the second season is not performing as good as they hoped. It was originally ordered a 22 episode count, which is now shaved down to 20. Yes, it is a small decline that could be hinting at trouble in their paradise. So far no one from the show has responded to the bad news yet.

I am sad about this news. This show is a unique one that has painted a very interesting story. However, NBC may not be the network with their best bet of being a strong hold for fans. I am thinking that it would be a better niche based show that Netflix or Hulu could save with success since it would »

About a Boy: NBC Cuts Second Season Episodes

7 January 2015 12:11 PM, PST | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

The peacock network doesn't want quite as much of About a Boy. Deadline is reporting that NBC has trimmed the sitcom's second season from 22 to 20 episodes.

About a Boy revolves around San Francisco songwriter Will Freeman (David Walton) who had a big hit. It set him up for life financially -- and gave him a lot of freedom and free time. His world is turned upside down when a charming boy named Marcus (Benjamin Stockham) and single mom named Fiona (Minnie Driver) move in next door.

About a Boy has been really struggling this season and it seems very likely to be cancelled by spring. It's currently averaging a 1.2 in the 18-49 demographic with 4.15 million viewers. That's down 36-40% when compared to last year's figures.

London — “Unbroken” star Jack O’Connell and “Whiplash” lead Miles Teller are among the nominees for BAFTA’s Rising Star Award, which were announced Wednesday.

The award, which is sponsored by Ee, recognizes actors or actresses who “have demonstrated exceptional talent, and are destined to be bright stars in the future of cinema.” The other nominees are Shailene Woodley, Margot Robbie and Gugu Mbatha-Raw.

O’Connell first came to public attention in the U.K. TV series “Skins,” which he starred in from 2009. In 2013, he took the lead in British indie film “Starred Up,” playing Eric, a violent reprobate prematurely transferred to an adult prison. The role earned him a best actor nomination at last year’s British Independent Film Awards.

He also received critical acclaim for his punchy portrayal of Private Gary Hook in “’71,” for which he was nominated for a British Independent Film Award last year. The thriller, »

The 17 Most Underrated Movies of 2014

31 December 2014 5:42 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

One of the most disappointing realities about 2014 was that as box office shrank compared to last year, independent films were often hit the hardest. Despite stellar reviews, even festival darlings like “Whiplash,” “Foxcatcher,” “The Skeleton Twins” and “Dear White People” each grossed less than $10 million domestically. Here are the 17 most underrated movies of 2014 that deserve a second look in the opinion of Variety’s film critics and reporters.

1. “Enemy

Jake Gyllenhaal’s biggest, most buzzed-about performance of 2014 may have been in “Nightcrawler,” but his best work could be found in “Prisoners” director Denis Villeneuve’s existential thriller about a mild-mannerded Toronto history professor who discovers he has a doppelganger in the form of a bad-boy bit-part movie actor. Virtually a solo — make that dual — performance piece, with Gyllenhaal playing most of his scenes opposite himself (and, in one case, a giant tarantula), this freewheeling mash-up of Davids Cronenberg and Lynch »
