The Television Academy Honors celebrated its seventh annual event Sunday night at the Sls Beverly Hills honoring seven programs, including CBS’s “Mom” and ABC Family’s “The Fosters,” that use television to generate awareness and create change regarding social issues.
The pilot episode of “The Fosters” was honored for bringing and unconventional family to television with lesbian mothers raising biological, adopted and foster children.
“I know first hand the value of seeing yourself reflected in the media,” said “Fosters” co-creator Peter Paige, who was once on “Queer as Folk.” “We are a society obsessed with our own reflection and our reflection is not a mirror — it’s that plasma on the wall in our living rooms and when you don’t see yourself there you feel invisible.”
“We’ve got these fans who are just so die hard,” said star Sherri Saum. “This woman tattooed a picture of me »

House Hunting (2013) Review
Directed by: Eric Hurt
Written by: Eric Hurt
Moving can be a real pain. Finding that perfect house can be an even bigger inconvenience. Well, if I ever had any sort of informal education from horror movies, I’ve learned two fundamental truths. There’s gonna be trouble if hooking up with a beautiful woman is effortlessly easy, or if you run across a seemingly sweet real estate property at a ridiculously low price. I’ll go a bit further and say that said real estate property is probably going to be a murder house inhabited by a vengeful spirit with some serious emotional baggage. I would almost bet the farm on it.

The original "Footloose" hit a major milestone on Monday (Feb. 17). The movie starring Kevin Bacon officially turns 30 years old, and "The Following" star celebrated its anniversary by sharing a throwback photo to his dancing days on Twitter:
"It was 30 years ago today," Bacon writes. "Ren McCormack taught the town to play..."
In those 30 years, the cast of the original "Footloose" -- including Bacon, John Lithgow, Sarah Jessica Parker and Lori Singer -- have gone on to enjoy diverse careers in TV and film, while a remake of "Footloose" was released in 2011 starring Kenny Wormald, Julianne Hough, Dennis Quaid and Miles Teller.
Can you believe it's already been 30 years since the original "Footloose" was released? »
Everybody cut, everybody cut!"Footloose" was released in theaters 30 years ago today -- and Kevin Bacon danced away with our hearts.Hard to believe that Tom Cruise and Rob Lowe were reportedly up for the role of Ren McCormack in the classic 1984 flick, as it's come to be one of Kevin's most memorable movies to date.While it wasn't a hit with critics, the movie was a box office success. It also has one of the best soundtracks of all time, with songs like "Almost Paradise," "Holding Out for a Hero," "Let's Hear It For the Boy," and Kenny Loggins' title track.The flick also spawned a remake and a musical.While Bacon has remained in the public eye since the film's release, what about some of his costars?

Thirty years ago, Kevin Bacon taught Bomont — and the nation — that the kids just want to dance. That's right, it was on this day in 1984 when "Footloose" made its way to theaters becoming a box office hit, Oscar nominee for Best Song and a soundtrack sensation. So this President's Day, take a few minutes to remember that feeling you had when you first wanted to kick off your Sunday shoes. Below, we have 7 clips from the film, highlighting the struggle the kids faced from the crusty adults, who didn't want their arms akimbo and legs flailing within city limits. And then after that, compare and contrast the final big dance scene from Herbert Ross' original movie and Craig Brewer's country-fried 2011 musical remake. Sorry Kenny Wormald and Julianne Hough, you're no Kevin Bacon and Lori Singer. Check it all out below. »
