One of the absolute pleasures of getting to do a series like The Actor’s Side is sitting down with a certified legend like Rita Moreno, which is exactly what I got to do for this week’s special two-part edition of our Emmy season crop of interviews. Just about everything this Oscar-, Emmy-, Tony- and Grammy-winning star said was pure gold. At 85, she is still going strong and looks about 20 years younger (and she is the first to say that, by the way). Currently back on… »
Eight decades look great on Rita Moreno.
Looking at her flawless complexion, it’s hard to believe that a) she’s 85, and b) that she ever had a problem with her skin.
“When I was in my teens and into my early 20s I had acne,” the legendary actress reveals to People in the World’s Most Beautiful issue. “I used to get those big purple jobs but not a lot of them, thank goodness, because you really couldn’t see them in the films that I did.”

Jessica Alba doesn’t care about designer names when it comes to interior design, but she does require a spot to “throw your feet up.”

“I used Consort to design every room in my house,” Alba says. (The partners have also decorated homes for Shay Mitchell and Kardashian hair stylist Jen Atkin. »

“The tables have turned, yes, the tables have turned with a vengeance! You’ve come around to my old way of thinking and I to yours like two people exchanging a call on each other at the same time, and each one finding the other one gone out, the door locked against him and no one to answer the bell!”

HBO’s “Girls” has maintained a modest presence at the Emmys ever since the program’s big coming-out in 2012 and 2013, when it scooped up two nominations in a row for outstanding comedy series. Adam Driver has shown up consistently in the supporting actor category, while guest stars like Gaby Hoffman and Peter Scolari have been recognized as well. But the show has mostly struggled to reach those early heights again.
That could change with the sixth and final season, which has made for the richest portrait of Lena Dunham’s world yet.
You may well have bailed by now, whether the creator’s outsized activist footprint overshadowed the series, or her various characters’ descent into their own navels made it seem like there was no light at the end of the tunnel. But it’s time to catch up. Things were already on the upswing with season five, and now, with »

When Molly Sims and her husband, film producer Scott Stuber, found their Pacific Palisades home it was only 80% done. But the model, actress and mom of three had a vision for her family’s new house that was 100% complete.
“People always say, ‘You could do it on your own, you have such great taste,’ and I do!” Sims tells archdigest.com of her interior design prowess. “I love design. Mama never met a couch she didn’t like.”

Rita Moreno‘s iconic and eclectic career is the stuff of Hollywood legends — and so is her 5,500-square-foot, multilevel contemporary home.
Nestled in the Berkeley Hills and overlooking the San Francisco Bay, Moreno — who moved into the three-bedroom, thre-and-a-half bath home with her late husband Leonard Gordon 16 years ago — has decorated the space in colorful ways to reflect her Puerto Rican heritage, world travels and family, which includes respectful nods to the “lust” and “love” of her life: ex-Marlon Brando and Gordon, her husband of 45 years.

Still Eligible: Yes.
Hot Streak: Though broadcast series have been struggling overall at the Emmys, the Big Four have won 11 of the last 12 trophies in this category (ABC: 4, CBS: 3, Fox: 1, NBC: 3)
Fun Fact: Kristin Wiig and Amy Poehler had been nominated in this category, but Kate McKinnon is the only “SNL” player to win as a Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series. (Gilda Radnor won in 1978 when “Saturday Night Live” was considered a variety show.)
It was just two years prior that this category submitted not six, not seven, but eight nominees. And seven of those eight women are still eligible in 2017, meaning competition will be fierce even before the new contenders are factored into the race. Kate McKinnon has only gotten better since her win last year. Gaby Hoffman and Judith Light remained excellent on the latest season of “Transparent.” Allison Janney »

The Netflix reboot of One Day at a Time is a true homage to its predecessor. Inspired by the single-parent family dynamic of the original, the new series replaces the Romano household of Indianapolis with the Cuban-American Alvarez family from the Echo Park section of Los Angeles. The new One Day at a Time wastes no time diving into the topical issues of today. Subjects like sexism, Ptsd, immigration, and veteran's rights are handled with honesty and finesse, while managing to mine the comic gold inherent in the moment. Binge-worthy and aspirational in its social consciousness, each episode carries a powerful message interspersed with clever humor and witty dialogue. If that's not enough, here are five more reasons you should be watching One Day at a Time. Norman Lear is a producer. The legendary talent behind classic '70s sitcoms is the creator of the original series and has returned as producer for the reboot. »

Netflix has given a second-season order to the revival of “One Day at a Time.”
The Sony Pictures TV comedy, from Norman Lear and showrunners Mike Royce and Gloria Calderon Kellett, bowed in January to rapturous reviews.

From its opening, traffic-stopping number to its romantic ending, La La Land is a love letter to the city of Los Angeles — as well as to the classic movie musicals of the ’40s and ’50s.
In his six-year quest to get the film — which earned a record-tying 14 Academy Award nominations — made, director Damien Chazelle called upon those original MGM song and dance numbers for inspiration.

La La Land garnered a record-tying 14 Academy Award nominations this year — it’s now neck-and-neck with Titanic and All About Eve for receiving the most Oscar nominations in a given year. Among those nods is a first-ever Best Actress nom for Emma Stone, who’s been racking up rave reviews for her performance in the film.
While we’ve got musicals on the mind, let’s take a look back at some other actresses who’ve received acclaim for their musical turns.
Hathaway’s turn as Fantine was the only non-technical award the 2012 adaptation of the smash musical picked up. »

Winning an Emmy, a Grammy, an Oscar, or a Tony is nice and all, but what if you win all four? Scoring an elusive Egot is a feat that only 12 people in Hollywood have been able to pull off so far: Audrey Hepburn, Richard Rodgers, Helen Hayes, Rita Moreno, John Gielgud, Jonathan Tunick, Marvin Hamlisch, Mel Brooks, Mike Nichols, Whoopi Goldberg, Robert Lopez, and Scott Rudin. Could Adele be next? Maybe. There are quite a few people, like Denzel Washington and Kate Winslet, who are close to taking home the so-called "grand slam" of show business, and Adele is one of them. Unless you've been living under a rock since 2009, you know she's made a habit of sweeping the Grammys every year she puts out an album (and sometimes even when she doesn't, in one case). So far she has 15 under her belt, as well as one Oscar for "Skyfall, »

FX is set to premiere “Legion” Wednesday night, a new series from the mind of showrunner Noah Hawley (“Fargo”) that could make a splash in Emmy season where countless comic book shows have previously failed.
While “Game of Thrones” has certainly found its stride, genre bias has nevertheless done its part over the years to hold programs like this back when it comes to awards. But on rare occasions, a comic book title has sparked in a major category: “Batman” landed a comedy series nomination and a mention for supporting actor Frank Gorshin in 1966. “Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman” was singled out for direction in 1994. Mariette Hartley even won the drama actress prize for “The Incredible Hulk” in 1979, beating out the likes of Rita Moreno (“The Rockford Files”) and Barbara Bel Geddes (“Dallas”).
The only superhero show to truly hit with the Television Academy was “Heroes,” but that was an original concept, not »
