Announcing the 2012 SAG Awards Nominees

14 December 2011 6:05 AM, PST | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

The 2012 Screen Actors Guild Awards nominations are out this morning, and we're bringing you all the action - watch our streaming video of the SAG Awards announcement, which we're replaying all morning long. Judy Greer and Regina King were up bright and early in La to do the honors, a few of which went to Judy's movie The Descendants. Brad Pitt, George Clooney, and Leonardo DiCaprio are once again up against each other in the lead actor category, which should make for a fun race, though we were disappointed to see Ryan Gosling's name left off the list. Bridesmaids continues to rake in the early award-season love as well, with the cast and Melissa McCarthy both scoring nods. In the TV category, we're excited to see the love for Game of Thrones, which is up against perennial favorites including Dexter and Breaking Bad. Steve Carell also has at least »

2012 Screen Actors Guild Award Nominations

14 December 2011 5:22 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Photo: Screen Actors Guild This morning at 6 Am, Judy Greer and Regina King announced the 2012 Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Awards nominations in five film and eight television categories and there were a few surprises as the actors decided to slip a few unexpected names into the mix.

It starts in the lead actor category as Demian Bichir was nominated for A Better Life, a push Summit made early in the Oscar season and it appears to have paid off. The Actors Guild was obviously impressed by J. Edgar having nominated both Leonardo DiCaprio and Armie Hammer, the latter being one of two bigger surprises in the Supporting Actor category as Nick Nolte was also nominated for Warrior, but Drive's Albert Brooks, who has been sweeping up critical awards lately, went without a nomination as did Max von Sydow (Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close) and Ben Kingsley (Hugo).

Community Review: Britta-ing the Glee Club

8 December 2011 5:30 PM, PST | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

As we all sadly know "Regional Holiday Music" marked the last episode of Community before it goes on an indefinite hiatus. Do you feel the wrath yet NBC? While the show definitely went out with a bang, it didn't totally blow my socks off.

I think Community is at it's absolute best when it's not trying too hard, and I felt that this is where things took a wrong turn. I get wanting to make your potential last episode a show stopper, but I think combined with a Christmas episode, they just went a little too hard. But fear not, there was definitely a lot that I liked. 

So let's break it down into the moments that were Gleeful and those I felt were almost as off-key as Britta's voice.


Obviously Troy and Abed have great rhyming skills, Spanish rap anyone? When they busted into their little fort, rap video style, »

Charlie Sheen tweets his phone number. Oops.

8 December 2011 4:18 PM, PST | Pop2it | See recent Pop2it news »

When Charlie Sheen and "Two and a Half Men" had their very public break-up earlier this year, his co-star of 8 years, Jon Cryer, casually mentioned that he didn't have Charlie's phone number.

Now, that number has been shared with Sheen's 5 million Twitter followers. Whoops!

On Dec. 8, Sheen tweeted his number, along with the note, "Call me, bro." We assume he intended to send the number in a direct message. (Hey, at least it wasn't a photo of himself in his underwear. We'd rather not.)

The tweet was deleted shortly after -- but there was plenty of time for eager followers to jot down the digits. We don't even want to know how many "Winning!" voicemails Charlie got today.

Of course, Sheen currently has bigger things to worry about. He recently shelled out $11,000 (pocket change, for him) to bail his ex-wife, Brooke Mueller -- the mother of his twin sons -- »

Hey Toronto! The Twitch-presented tour of 1980's teen films continues tonight at the Tiff Bell Lightbox with a screening of the John Hughes written and produced Pretty In Pink.One of the best of the Hughes bunch (though he handed directing duties to his go-to substitute Howard Deutch), Pretty in Pink stars Molly Ringwald as Andie, a blue-collar girl with a unique fashion sense who falls hard for upper-class, feathery-haired, linen blazer-wearing heartthrob Blane (Andrew McCarthy), much to the dismay of her childhood friend Duckie (Jon Cryer), who has been in love with her for years. Featuring a fantastic soundtrack--including the title track by the Psychedelic Furs and songs by Echo and the Bunnymen, The Smiths and New Order--and great supporting turns by Harry Dean »

Two and a Half Men Season 9 Episode 10 Review: Abusing the Audience’s Pity

22 November 2011 5:18 PM, PST | | See recent news »

The recent Two and a Half Men two-parter (“Thank you for the Intercourse” and “Frodo’s Headshots”) took Alan (Jon Cryer) to a rehab clinic after a night of pretending to be Charlie took him to the deep end. A dream episode in the clinic made us believe that he returned only to find that Jake got his girlfriend pregnant, his former girlfriend Lyndsey (Courtney Thorne-Smith) was sleeping with Walden (Ashton Kutcher) and Herb (Ryan Stiles) found out that Alan is the biological father of his daughter. This led to a dark ending where Alan is shot in a storage facility with the remainder of his belongings on the verge of scoring with a rich and sophisticated woman who just happened to be a few units down the hall. As morose as those two episodes were, they fell in line with what’s been going on with Alan. But he »

'Two and a Half Men': Walden Schmidt unveils home of the future

16 November 2011 11:36 AM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

Now that Walden Schmidt (Ashton Kutcher) is officially a home owner on "Two and a Half Men," it was just a matter of time until he gave the Malibu beach house a makeover.

Well, Schmidt unveiled the new look on Monday (Nov. 14), and the pad has a decidedly tech flavor. In keeping with the tech billionaire's interests, the home has voice-recognition software connected to everything from the light switches to the stereo to the refrigerator. Of course there's a bit of a rub as it's only calibrated to his voice, so Alan's (Jon Cryer) going to have a little trouble with it. And God knows what Jake (Angus T. Jones) will do when he can't figure out the toaster.

The highlight of the new place is the gigantic TV set that probably has an 80-inch screen or more. Plus there's the three couch pillows of "Ctrl," "Alt" and "Delete." Once a tech nerd, »

'Two and a Half Men': The best surprise is no surprise

14 November 2011 7:30 PM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

Deus ex machina is a Latin term that translates into English as "Jump the Shark." Actually that's not true, but it might as well when you're talking about Monday's (Nov. 14) episode of "Two and a Half Men."

When we left off, Alan (Jon Cryer) checked into a mental hospital as he was having trouble coping with Charlie's death. Well, Alan's out and ready to take us for a ride.

[Spoiler Alert?]

On a dark and stormy night, a tornado uproots the Malibu beach house hurtling it skyward. It ultimately lands miles away, killing Walden (Ashton Kutcher) and Jake (Angus T. Jones) and coincidentally crushing Evelyn's (Holland Taylor) home with her in it. With both residences rendered uninhabitable and nowhere else to go, a newly released Alan figures he can seek momentary lodging with his ex-wife Judith.

When he arrives at Judith's place, he sees the light on inside. Since it's still raining, »

Gary Busey Joins 'Two and a Half Men' as It Takes Another Dig at Charlie Sheen (Video)

14 November 2011 2:43 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

"Two and a Half Men" isn't done making fun of Charlie Sheen. And it thinks Gary Busey may be a source of easy laughs, too. After killing off Sheen's character, Charlie Harper, in this season's premiere, the show goes back to the well tonight as his brother, Alan (Jon Cryer) imitates the deceased. It's all part of his unhinged mourning process. Also read: Sheen slams new 'Two and a Half Men' Alan checks into a mental hospital where he orders up booze and hookers, hangs up an imaginary phone, and declares himself "winning." »

'Two and a Half Men': Gary Busey may not be the worst roommate option

14 November 2011 9:10 AM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

There's no easy way to put it. Alan's (Jon Cryer) going crazy on "Two and a Half Men" as he tries to come to terms with Charlie's death. And it's only going to get worse.

On Monday (Nov. 14), Alan starts a stint at a mental hospital as he tries to get his life back in order. The road to recovery for the always unlucky Alan won't be a smooth ride when he finds his roommate is former "Celebrity Rehab" participant Gary Busey playing himself.

So that got us thinking about whether Busey is the worst option of the former "Rehabers." Which do you think would make for a tougher time for Alan on his path to wellness?

"Two and a Half Men" airs at 9 p.m. Et on CBS.

  Which "Celebrity Rehab" alum would be worse than Gary Busey as a roommate?

Charlie Sheen -- Mocked on 'Two and a Half Men'

It wasn't enough to kill Charlie Sheen off in " Two and a Half Men " -- last night, creator Chuck Lorre took a personal shot at the Warlock on the show ... mocking Sheen's famous "winning" catchphrase. During the episode, Jon Cryer's character was impersonating Charlie Harper  -- pretending to order scotch and hookers ... before uttering Sheen's favorite word, "Winning." Harper's dead ... maybe it's time to finally bury the hatchet too. Read more »

Two and a Half Men Gets Mimi Rogers as Season 9 Guest Star

8 November 2011 10:53 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Two and a Half Men is about to get another dose of motherly advice in Season 9, with Mimi Rogers signing on for a guest-starring role.

The actress will play the mother of Walden Schmidt (Ashton Kutcher) in at least two episodes this season, although it isn't known when Mimi Rogers' debut episode will air. It is said that Mimi Rogers' character is a celebrated primatologist, a scientist who studies apes.

Ashton Kutcher took over for the embattled Charlie Sheen in Season 9, portraying Walden Schmidt, a bizarre millionaire who buys Charlie Harper's house after his untimely death, and allows Alan (Jon Cryer) and Jake (Angus T. Jones) to keep living in the house.

Despite the loss of Charlie Sheen, Two and a Half Men continues to perform well in the Monday night 9 Pm time slot on CBS. Last night's episode, Thanks For the Intercourse, pulled in 14.5 million viewers. »

Two and a Half Men Review: Winning!

7 November 2011 8:32 PM, PST | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

The latest Two and a Half Men continued the refreshing trend of last week: really taking advantage of its half man. Jake, along with his father, finally explored his feelings over the loss of their respective uncle and brother.

It was actually a pretty welcome change to see Charlie spoken about in a slightly positive light via "Thank You For The Intercourse." Sure, there was still the obligatory venereal disease jokes, but there was also plenty of heart as they talked about the man.

I understood the necessity for a sitcom to jump right into the laughs on a season premiere - but when you decide to kill off a major relative of several of the characters, you need to address some legitimate mourning. Bravo for getting that job done here.

From Jake's reminiscing of how his uncle treated him like an adult idiot, all the way to Alan's full on mental breakdown, »
