Why Sean McEnroe Changed His Name to Sean O'Neal

4 June 2016 8:35 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

He was born Sean McEnroe, the son of John McEnroe and Tatum O'Neal but last year, Sean decided to drop his father's last name and take his mom's as his surname. "I changed my name to Sean O'Neal - it's nothing against my dad but I wanted to have my own path that is not so directly linked to him because it's just the way people have [always] perceived me," O'Neal, 28, tells People. "I just wanted to forge my own identity." As for his, at times, complex relationship with his father, he says, "We're trying to work things out. We have »

Why 'Bad News Bears' Is the Greatest Baseball Movie Ever Made

7 April 2016 6:47 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

For folks who loves both baseball and movies, it's incredibly sad that Hollywood's takes on our national pastime continually whiff with a frequency that makes Adam Dunn look like Joe Dimaggio. But 40 years ago today, a film was released that got everything beautifully, hilariously and even painfully right: The Bad News Bears. A tartly-scripted comic saga about a no-hope Little League team from L.A.'s San Fernando Valley, the film — directed by Michael Ritchie from an original screenplay written by Bill Lancaster — shocked and amused audiences with its unbridled »

Patty Duke Has Died at Age 69; Oscar-Winner Was Beloved by Boomers for 'The Patty Duke Show' (Video Clips)

29 March 2016 11:19 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Patty Duke, born on December 14, 1946 in Elmhurst, Queens, died on Tuesday morning March 29, 2016 at age 69, from sepsis from a ruptured intestine.  When she started as a child actress in game shows, soap operas and commercials, her stage manager Ethel Ross told her: "Anna Marie is dead; you're Patty now."  Patty Duke broke out on Broadway in 1959 in "The Miracle Worker," and went on to earn an Oscar at age 16 (the youngest ever until Tatum O'Neal) for playing the blind deaf mute Helen Keller opposite Anne Bancroft as Annie Sullivan. Years later she nabbed an Emmy nomination for playing Sullivan opposite Melissa Gilbert in a 1979 TV feature.The same year she won the Oscar, Duke also starred in her own sitcom "The Patty Duke Show" as two-of-a-kind identical cousins, fun American teen Patricia "Patty" Lane and prim and proper Scottish Catherine "Cathy" Lane. Sidney Sheldon developed the show for her, not. »

Oscars Facts: 25 Things You (Probably) Don't Know About the Academy Awards

26 February 2016 7:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

It's almost here -- the 88th Academy Awards finally airs this Sunday, and we're counting down the minutes.

We've already given you our Oscar predictions, and now we're bringing you some of the best (and, um, craziest) facts about Hollywood's biggest awards show. From the first Best Actor winner, to the "one dollar" Oscar rule, here are 25 things you (probably) don't know about the Oscars.

1. The youngest Oscar winner was Tatum O'Neal (above), who won Best Supporting Actress for "Paper Moon" (1973) when she was only 10 years old. Shirley Temple won the short-lived Juvenile Award at 6 years old.

2. After winning Best Actress for "Cabaret" (1972), Liza Minnelli became (and still is) the only Oscar winner whose parents both earned Oscars. Her mother, Judy Garland, received an honorary award in 1939 and her father, Vincente Minnelli, won Best Director for "Gigi" (1958).

3. Nameplates for all potential winners are prepared ahead of time; in 2014, the Academy made 215 of them! »

30 Things You Might Not Know About Pretty in Pink, 30 Years Later

24 February 2016 11:30 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Pretty in Pink isn't just a good '80s movie. It isn't just a good teen movie. And it isn't just a good romantic movie. It's just a good movie, period. The John Hughes classic first hit theaters on Feb. 28, 1986, and it turns 30 years old this weekend. The film featured Molly Ringwald as Andie, a high school student whose style belies her working class roots. She's captured the eye of seemingly every guy in school - among them, preppy dreamboat Blane (Andrew McCarthy) and her little hipster buddy, Duckie (Jon Cryer). And the process of Ringwald's character trying to figure »

The Youngest Oscar Winners and Nominees in Academy Awards History

5 February 2016 9:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

In 2013, a then-9-year-old Quvenzhane Wallis received the Best Actress Oscar nomination for "Beasts of the Southern Wild," making her the youngest nominee in the category's history. This year, the Best Actress nominees are a little bit older. But that doesn't mean we can't look back in wonder at the remarkable achievements of Hollywood's most powerful pint-sized talents.

From Shirley Temple, the youngest Oscar honoree ever at six years old, to 10-year-old winner Tatum O'Neal, the youngest winner ever, sometimes Hollywood's next generation of stars do get recognized for their early achievements.

In honor of this year's Oscars, let's take a look back at some of the youngest Oscar winners and nominees in Academy Awards history.

Happy Birthday, Linda Blair!

22 January 2016 5:26 AM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Happy Birthday to horror legend and Oscar nominee, Linda Blair! The actress and activist's signature role as Regan in The Exorcist is as iconic as it comes, but she never landed another role as significant. Later years saw her winking at and spoofing her legendary demonic turn, but we will always be terrified by her icy stare behind the makeup.

Blair's Best Supporting Actress nomination remains one of our youngest nominees (though she was defeated by the even younger Tatum O'Neal) and one of the few honored performances in a horror film. Her Oscar chances were sidelined due to perceptions of Mercedes McCambridge's vocal contributions to the possessed Regan, but put the film on mute and Blair still stuns. The performance is as terrifying as it ever was - primal, physical, and unflinching. (If you missed last year's Smackdown which really dived into her work, check out the Smackdown and its companion podcast. »
