Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai at the Oscars Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai on the Academy Awards' Red Carpet Pictured above are Bollywood stars Aishwarya Rai and Abhishek Bachchan arriving at the 2011 Academy Awards ceremony, which took place on Feb. 27 at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood. Two years ago, an Anglo-Indian-American co-production, Danny Boyle's Slumdog Millionaire became not only one of the season's biggest sleeper hits, but also the eventual Best Picture Oscar winner. Dev Patel and Freida Pinto starred. Curiously, some have complained that Slumdog Millionaire was just a less interesting rehash of higher-quality Bollywood musicals and dramas that have received relatively little play outside South Asian communities around the globe. Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai movies The son of Indian cinema legend Amitabh Bachchan, Abhishek Bachchan has been featured in nearly 50 films. Among them are: Dhoom (2004).

Archie Panjabi: why the time was right to say goodbye to The Good Wife

8 May 2015 10:17 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

After six seasons, the British actor is stepping down as tough investigator Kalinda Sharma on the show. Before the Bafta TV awards, she reflects on her unique role

As Kalinda Sharma, the enigmatic, no-nonsense investigator for Stern, Lockhart & Gardner (and more lately, Florrick-Agos), Archie Panjabi has been one of the stand-out members of The Good Wife’s classy cast, alongside Julianna Margulies, Matt Czuchry, Christine Baranski, Chris Noth and Alan Cumming, winning an Emmy for her performance. It’s not hard to find praise for her performance: in the past, the Guardian has described the role as a “dazzling portrayal”, called Panjabi’s character “a sort of 1940s noir heroine transposed to modern-day Chicago” and argued that “nobody else on TV has smouldered quite like her, or rocked knee-length boots with such panache”. In London to present the Bafta for best supporting actor at Sunday’s TV awards, Panjabi (who »

Tony Awards 2015 Nominations: Bradley Cooper, Helen Mirren Nab Nods

28 April 2015 3:15 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Broadway has always boasted its share of stars, but this year, they seem even brighter than ever.

The nominations for the 2015 Tony Awards were revealed today, and among the luminaries receiving recognition are Bradley Cooper, Helen Mirren, Elisabeth Moss, Carey Mulligan, Ken Watanabe, and Ruth Wilson.

"An American in Paris" and "Fun Home" were the top nominated musicals, with a dozen nods each, while the two-part "Wolf Hall" was the most honored play.

One particularly notable omission was the exclusion of "Finding Neverland" from the best musical category. The high-profile show was produced by Harvey Weinstein, but some insiders have speculated that his infamously abrasive ways turned off Broadway vets.

The race to watch will be best actress in a play, which feature's a murderer's row of powerhouse performers: Geneva Carr ("Hand to God"), Helen Mirren ("The Audience"), Elisabeth Moss ("The Heidi Chronicles"), Carey Mulligan ("Skylight"), and Ruth Wilson ("Constellations »

First Look at Kodi Smit-McPhee as Nightcrawler in X-Men: Apocalypse

28 April 2015 2:58 AM, PDT | | See recent Worst Previews news »

"X-Men: Apocalypse" just started filming. And because we'll likely start getting lots of set photos, director Bryan Singer decided to give us an official look at Kodi Smit-McPhee (Let Me In) as Nightcrawler. Check out the photos below. Nightcrawler was last played by Alan Cumming in the second "X-Men" movie. Smit-McPhee will obviously play a younger version from the 1980s, something writer/producer Simon Kinberg confirmed by posting a set photo of a movie theater that's playing "Return of the Jedi." "X-Men: Apocalypse" is set to hit theaters on May 27th, 2016. Photos: (click to enlarge) »
