Joseph Gordon-Levitt Dresses as Robin and Makes Out with a Man in Drag During Harvard's Hasty Pudding Man of the Year Ceremony

7 February 2016 | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

A severe snowstorm couldn't keep Joseph Gordon-Levitt away from Cambridge, Massachusetts, Friday as he braved the elements to be feted and roasted by men in drag from the Hasty Pudding Theatricals for their 2016 Man of the Year award. Gordon-Levitt - the 50th recipient of the award presented annually by Harvard University's distinguished theater troupe - took the good-natured ribbing in stride, even as the evening's emcees poked fun at his Oscar snubs and less-than-stellar box-office returns. The decision by the actor - who starred last year in The Walk - to drop out of Columbia University to return to acting was a recurring joke, »

James Corden to Host the 2016 Tony Awards

2 February 2016 12:40 PM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

James Corden is taking his hosting skills to an even bigger stage: The "Late Late Show" host will emcee the 70th annual Tony Awards this year.

Corden, who is a Tony winner himself thanks to his stint in the 2012 play "One Man, Two Guvnors," has been tapped to host the show honoring the best in Broadway -- and which also, coincidentally, airs on "Late Late Show" home CBS. Neil Patrick Harris previously served as a four-time host between 2009 and 2013 when he was starring on the network's sitcom "How I Met Your Mother."

Aside from his built-in CBS connection, Corden is a smart pick for the gig thanks to his success behind the "Late Late" desk, which he took over in March 2015. The host has proven himself adept at crafting comedy bits -- often with the help of big name celebs -- that have gone viral, including his very first show, »

Hollywood Couples Who Have Been Together the Longest

2 February 2016 11:23 AM, PST | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Last year was a rough year for celebrity couples. Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner, Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale, and Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green are just a few of the famous duos who called it quits. Still, it's also not hard to find inspiring love stories in Hollywood. As the divorce rate drops across the Us, couples like Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka and Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith are proving two people can grow together in marriages. And then there are duos who withstand the test of time even without a marriage license. Take, for instance, Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell, two stars who don't want to get married but whose commitment hasn't seemed to waver in over 30 years.

He returned in 2012 as the star of the smash hit laffer "One Man, Two Guvnors." Corden pulled off an upset in the Best Actor (Play) race, defeating Oscar winner Philip Seymour Hoffman ("Capote") who headlined Mike Nichols' acclaimed revival of Arthur Miller's "Death of a Salesman."  -Break- Subscribe to Gold Derby Breaking News Alerts & Experts’ Latest Oscar Predictions The Tony Awards kudocast is a perennial Emmy nominee in the Special Class category.

Hey, Chris Rock: Steal these Oscar jokes!

1 February 2016 10:05 AM, PST | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Last year Gold Derby presented Oscar host Neil Patrick Harris with a list of suggested jokes. They were traditional Academy Award jokes – designed to poke fun at the nominees without being malicious. Remember, those people are incredibly nervous at the start of ceremony. The right opening monologue can help to break the tension, and put the nominees at ease. That sets the tone for the rest of the show. But Mr. Harris and his team ignored our gags. And will he ever emcee the Oscars again? Fortunately, our good pal Chris Rock is hosting this year. Chris, the last time you and I spoke, I told you what a great job you did in 2005. You were hysterical. This year, we know that you can be even better. So here are some complimentary Oscar jokes just for you, courtesy of Gold Derby. Use as many of them as you want. And »

Netflix Show A Series Of Unfortunate Events Gets Its Leads

27 January 2016 10:47 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

A Series Of Unfortunate Events is a book series that's beloved by many. Told as sort of a dark, morbid fairy tale, the story follows three orphans and their hopping from home to home, all the while being chased by their relative Count Olaf, who desperately seeks to steal their family inheritance.

Many of you may remember the film that came out in 2004. The film starred Jim Carrey as the nefarious Count Olaf, and despite its critical success, it didn't make quite enough money to warrant a sequel (the film took in $209 million at the box office on its $140 million budget). Still, the movie and books held a special place in many folks' hearts, and like many formerly-dropped properties in the past, it eventually made its way to Netflix.

Fans were so excited that some even went so far as to put together a fanmade trailer.

A Series Of Unfortunate Events Expands Its Cast For Netflix

27 January 2016 3:27 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

As it continues to expand its roster of commissioned programming, Netflix is unarguably going from strength to strength. This trend continues with its upcoming show, the Paramount TV-produced A Series Of Unfortunate Events – which is an episodic telling of the popular series of children’s novels, previously produced as a Jim Carrey movie. Now, the series has now cast two more of its key characters, as the project nears production.

The source material comprises 13 children’s novels by the author Daniel Handler – writing under the pseudonym Lemony Snicket. It centres on three siblings – Violet, Klaus and Sunny Baudelaire – who are orphaned when their parents perish in a mysterious and tragic fire. The children find themselves in the care of their sinister uncle, Count Olaf, whose primary motivation for welcoming the trio is limited to his pursuit of their considerable inheritance. The dark tale encompasses Olaf’s attempts to swindle the children, »

Oscars 2016: 10 Potential Shocking Upsets

22 January 2016 3:58 PM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Focus/Fox

On 28th February, the 88th Academy Awards will take place at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood after yet more controversy over the nominations and a troubling lack of diversity. Chris Rock will host (hopefully better than Neil Patrick Harris) with Ricky Gervais’ dare to “do some serious damage”, over-the-top musical numbers will fill your ears, and the winners and losers of this year’s Oscars race will be announced.

As always, there are bound to be a few upsets.

There can only be one winner in each category, and last year’s romping technical awards success for The Grand Budapest Hotel proved yet again that it’s very easy for one film to run off with loads of them and leave little for the rest.

Somewhat unthinkably, your favourite film/actor/director could easily leave empty-handed, while something or someone that you thought was rubbish could take home a golden statue. »

Count Olaf could be played by Neil Patrick Harris in Netflix’s upcoming adaptation of A Series Of Unfortunate Events

Netflix’s adaptation of A Series Of Unfortunate Events has quite possibly found its Count Olaf. How I Met Your Mother, Gone Girl and 2015 Oscars star Neil Patrick Harris is reportedly in talks to portray the immoral adoptive father – presumably in a variety of disguises – in the upcoming series.

If he takes the part, he’ll be stepping into the shoes of Jim Carrey, who did a fine job portraying Lemony Snicket’s orphan-harassing creation in the 2004 movie version. It’s worth mentioning that Harris has comedic villainous form of his own, having starred in Joss Whedon’s web series Doctor Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog.

This casting rumour has originated from The Hollywood Reporter, who have certainly hit the nail right on the head with their speculation »

Neil Patrick Harris Is Count Olaf in Netflix's 'A Series of Unfortunate Events'

16 January 2016 2:07 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

When it comes to getting a new TV show off the ground, any production has its ups and downs, and sometimes they come at the same time. Mark Hudis, known for his work on HBO's hit vampire series True Blood, has just exited as Showrunner on the highly anticipated TV series adaptation of Lemony Snicket's a Series of Unfortunate Events. Coming to Netflix later this year, the bad news was met with good when Neil Patrick Harris was announced as the show's evil lead Count Olaf.

Count Olaf will be Neil Patrick Harris's first major TV role since leaving How I Met Your Mother in 2014, where he played bad boy Barney. His new character, originated by Jim Carrey in the 2004 big screen adaptation Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events, will be quite the departure. At this time, no replacement has been named for Mark Hudis. Netflix is refusing to comment on either matter. »
