Invited for caroling and cocktails by David Letterman's Late Show musical director Paul Shaffer and Doc NYC's Thom Powers, illustrious guests celebrated Morgan Neville's Oscar short listed documentary 20 Feet From Stardom with three of its stars - Darlene Love, Lisa Fischer and Judith Hill.
At the Rum House in the Edison Hotel, on a Times Square already in the process of being prepared for New Year's Eve, I felt as though I entered into a scene from Woody Allen's Hannah And Her Sisters. I don't know which - an imaginary one with Glenn Close, Steve Buscemi, Jo Andres, Gretchen Mol, Robert Wuhl, and Richard Kind, directed by Paul Haggis. The evening was all about the joy of performance.

The award season is now in full swing. This morning, SAG-aftra announced the nominees for the 20th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards. Nominations and wins at these awards often add to one’s Oscar hopes, so it’s always interesting to see which projects are getting the most attention.
One neat personal note here is that, since I’ve been a card-carrying member of the Screen Actors Guild for 7 years, I get to cast my votes on all of these. Looking forward to that.

Last year, viewership for HBO's Boardwalk Empire started to dwindle. Will the ratings continue to fall in season four or will they rise instead? We'll have to wait and see how things go.
Boardwalk Empire follows political figure Enoch "Nucky" Thompson (Steve Buscemi) as he works to control Atlantic City during the Prohibition era. Others in the drama's cast include Kelly Macdonald, Michael Shannon, Shea Whigham, Anthony Laciura, Stephen Graham, Michael Stuhlbarg, Vincent Piazza, Michael Kenneth Williams, and Gretchen Mol.
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show's chances of staying on the air. The higher the ratings, the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available -- typically on Tuesdays.
Final season averages: 0.8 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 2.05 million total viewers. »
Spoiler alert: Stop reading if you don’t want to know who was killed on ‘Boardwalk Empire!’
Say it ain’t so! HBO’s Prohibition hit Boardwalk Empire made headlines two years ago when they killed off fan-favorite Jimmy Darmody (Michael Pitt), and now they’ve done it again. The Nov. 24 finale brought a grim farewell to one of our all-time favorite characters, leaving us not exactly sure who we’re supposed to root for once Season 5 rolls along.
Well that was depressing. Wwi vet Richard Harrow (Jack Huston) entered Boardwalk Empire back in Season 1 a broken man, and he departed during the Nov. 24 episode — bleeding to death under the boardwalk, natch — inches away from his well-deserved happy ending. He finally married Julia (Wrenn Schmidt), and was planning leave Nucky Thompson (Steve Buscemi) and his life of crime »

HBO's Prohibition-era drama "Boardwalk Empire" aired its season-four finale tonight, called "Farewell Daddy Blues." Since the show has been renewed, creator Terence Winter didn't have to worry about wrapping up his story just in case.
But one never likes secrets to come out early.
Told that some writers had published "spoilers" after seeing a clip from episode, Winter says to Zap2it, "They didn't realize that Nucky's actually a werewolf, did they? That didn't come out?"
While main character Nucky Thompson (Steve Buscemi), a mover-and-shaker behind the scenes and beyond the law in Atlantic City, N.J., is not going anywhere, Winter did throw a bomb last week into the life of Gillian Darmody (Gretchen Mol). She's evolved from sexually abused teenager to mistress, showgirl and single mother, then through incest and murder to become a madam of a failing bordello.

Boardwalk Empire, Season 4, Episode 11, “Havre de Grace”

Kate is new to Boardwalk Empire this season and her reviews will approach the acclaimed series from the newbie’s perspective.
This week, on Boardwalk Empire: Chalky takes a breather, Gillian falls hard, and Nucky wants out
Much of this season, Boardwalk Empire has struggled with too many characters and disconnected storylines, leaving the overall narrative scattered. This week the show focuses in, following Chalky and Gillian while the other characters take the episode off, other than a few scenes setting up Eli and Nucky for the finale. However while this helps highlight these two characters and allows them to shine, the direction the writers choose to go with them makes the episode, and in one case, much of the season, feel absolutely wasted.

Three indie movies with three fine talents getting involved so let's get started... First off, actress/writer/director/auto enthusiast/generally awesome person Lake Bell has joined Simon Pegg in "Man Up." The 2011 Brit List script by Tess Morris "centers on single gal Nancy (Bell), who’s mistaken for a stranger’s blind date en route to her parents’ anniversary, leading to her finally finding the perfect boyfriend." Aww, sounds like it'll punch you right in the feelings box. Ben Palmer ("The Inbetweeners Movie") is at the helm and production will begin in January. As if Tim Blake Nelson's "Anesthesia" didn't have enough folks already—Kristen Stewart, Sam Waterston, Glenn Close, Corey Stoll, Gretchen Mol, Michael K. Williams, Gloria Reuben, Jessica Hecht, Mickey Sumner, K. Todd Freeman—one more is joining the ranks with Katie Chang (the queen bee of "The Bling Ring") coming onboard. The movie "follows a »

Co-starring Glenn Close (Mars Attacks!), Kristen Stewart (Twilight), Gretchen Mol (Boardwalk Empire), Sam Waterston (Law And Order) and Tim himself, the plot focuses on a group of university students who group together after their professor is mugged.
Chang was brilliant as the whip-smart and sassy Rebecca in Sofia Coppola’s The Bling Ring, and you can also see her in the upcoming A Birder’S Guide To Everything. As her career is only just taking off, joining Nelson’s newest project is a clever idea, especially when you consider you she’ll be starring alongside.

Kristen broke down in tears in New York City, just two days after she and Rob had a romantic date in La. Does she miss him already, HollywoodLifers?
Kristen Stewart, 23, and Robert Pattinson, 27, were inseparable in La after their Oct. 30 reunion and Nov. 2 Dia de los Muertos date — until she hopped on a plane to New York to film Anesthesia! It looks like her role calls for some dark and emotional scenes. However, Kristen’s tears from the shoot look so real — and could have been inspired by how much she misses Rob!
Kristen was pictured on a NYC street corner on Nov. 4, shooting the indie film with actor Sam Waterston.
She broke down in tears after storming out of an apartment building, wearing a green beanie and warm coat with her hair down.
Perhaps Kristen’s tears were fueled by real-life events! »

Sadé Green reviews the first episode of Boardwalk Empire season 4....
The premier of the new season of Boardwalk Empire really didn't disappoint on Saturday as pretty much everything you'd expect from a Be episode was present: sex, death, extreme violence, dancing and a few lighter moments thrown in for good measure. A full one hour long, 'New York Sour' tried to cram in as many new story lines as humanly possible; unfortunately this made it a little bit too slow.
The central characters of Boardwalk Empire have all developed fantastically well over the last three seasons – so well in fact, that this episode was dominated by peripheral characters who have clearly climbed up to the big leagues. Although there are certainly no complaints here, all are definitely capable of holding any big intense scene as well as our main man, Nucky Thompson (Steve Buscemi).
So what's new in 1924?
