Los Angeles—Jason Mraz and Heart may not be the first names that you think of when you think of country music (or the last), but the two acts fit in perfectly at Tuesday night’s (5) All for the Hall benefit for Nashville's Country Music Hall of Fame. They joined Vince Gill and Emmylou Harris in an old-fashioned guitar pull at Club Nokia. For the uninitiated, guitar pulls feature artists in a circle or line as they perform round-robin style accompanied only with a guitar. It marked the first time the event had been held in Los Angeles in three years and to tie in with Hollywood, the event was hosted by Rita Wilson, who declared herself a country music convert especially since she has been spending time in Nashville writing with some top-tier songwriters. Southern Californian Mraz proved to be the crowd favorite, especially after he performed hits, “I »
The film tells the tale of four people trapped in the once-vibrant Rosemont Lodge during a blizzard just before Christmas.

We've rounded up a number of the rousing BAFTA acceptance speech videos, including Cate Blanchett, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Helen Mirren, Steve McQueen, Alfonso Cuaron and Barkhad Abdi. Check it all out, below. The night held a number of moving moments, from Blanchett's dedication of her award to the late Philip Seymour Hoffman; to Ejiofor's win, which was a popular decision among his fellow nominated leading men Leonardo DiCaprio (who gamely blew a kiss to the camera), Christian Bale and Tom Hanks; to Abdi's win, which was met with enthusiastic applause from his "Captain Phillips" castmate Hanks and wife Rita Wilson (and was clearly a moment of happiness for award presenter Emma Thompson); to Mirren's acceptance of the BAFTA Fellowship, presented to her by none other than Prince William (who joked that he should call Mirren "Granny"). The full list of BAFTA winners, with analysis, is here. »

So, we’ve arrived at the top 20, slowly creeping toward those films that are exactly what a romantic comedy should be. We’ve seen films that fall into the category, but lean more toward other genres. We’ve seen romantic films that are funny enough to be comedies, but don’t entirely represent the spirit of the rom-com, despite being brilliant films. Now, we form a clearer picture of what a romantic comedy is. Not all of the films in this section are necessarily “good,” but they’re all iconic, definitive romantic comedies (hence their inclusion). Memorability does not necessarily come partnered with quality. It means right place, right time.

20. Sleepless in Seattle (1993)

The stars are shining a bit brighter than usual on red carpets of 2014 awards shows. Though we're not even a month into the new year, one fashion trend has made itself very evident: Metallic is the in-look.
That trend continued at the Screen Actors Guild Awards, where the likes of Sandra Bullock, Sofia Vergara, Jennifer Lawrence, Rita Wilson and Emilia Clarke -- as well as Best Dressed Anna Gunn -- went more colorful yet still metallic in their red carpet dresses.
Then along came the Grammys. The most talked about looks of the night were all metallic, from Taylor Swift's Gucci gown to Chrissy Teigen's gorgeous frock to Rita Ora's short green-gold dress. That's not even mentioning Ciara's »
During the 2014 Critics' Choice Awards red carpet, host Aisha Tyler promises that "much like a porn film, we're fast-forwarding to the good stuff right away," in terms of hitting the jokes hard and fast.
Well, she did hit them hard and fast. But some were considerably better than others.
Tyler gets in some great cracks about critics, like how these awards are "a night for a bunch of people who absolutely hate movies telling you which movies they hated the least" and to Twitter users: "Our show is #CriticsChoice. If you see something you like, let us know. See something you hate? Whine about it like a little baby. Congratulations, you're a critic."
Aisha also had us giggling when she says, "I'm only gonna pay attention to the [actors] I'd like to sleep with ... what's up, Bruce Dern?"
But Tyler also makes some jokes that appear to not go over very well with the crowd, »
The Oscars may have snubbed Tom Hanks for "Captain Phillips" and "Saving Mr. Banks," but Aisha Tyler wouldn't do that. Hosting the 2014 Critics Choice Awards on Thursday (Jan. 16), Tyler gave the actor a supportive shout-out form the stage.
"I would never snub you, Tom Hanks," Tyler says in her opening monologue at the show. "No snubs, no scrubs."
Why did this even come up? A few moments earlier, Tyler had pointed out that she wouldn't be able to mention all of the nominees. Instead, she was going to focus only on those nominees that she would like to sleep with. Hanks wasn't Tyler's first mention, but he at least made the list.
If only the actor could say the same thing about the Academy Awards.
Tyler's love of Hanks returned later in the evening when she sat briefly at his table and admired the way he ate his yogurt. She »
We sat down with the cast and creators of HBO hit TV show Girls today, the very second the Oscar nominations landed. And, as it turns out, star Allison Williams has some pretty strong feelings about the fact Tom Hanks missed out on a nod this year. Williams (who shares scenes with Hanks' wife Rita Wilson on Girls) explains why he should have got recognition, below. For more Oscar misses, check out our Oscars 2014: 16 Shameful Snubs feature. Girls Season 3 starts on Sky Atlantic on Monday 20 January.

"Girls" returned for Season 3 on Sunday (Jan. 12) and, after a shaky second season that tended to go dark and lacked in humor, the HBO series gave lapsed fans plenty of proof that Season 3 is the time to get back on the train to Brooklyn.
1. The comedy is back
Look, first and foremost, the back-to-back episodes were hysterical. Whereas most of Season 2 felt as if it was an exercise in depressing viewers, this premiere brought the funny. The writing was punched up with punchlines, as well as observational moments that were just Lol-worthy. Hannah (Lena Dunham) and her editor eating those chocolate cups? Great. Marnie (Allison Williams) and the taco incident? Hilarious. Shoshanna's (Zosia Mamet) Truth or Dare game with Adam (Adam Driver) and Hannah in the hotel room? Just perfect.
2. Rita Wilson as Marnie's mom
Finally, we understand why Marnie is the neurotic mess that she is. Rita Wilson was spot-on as her testy, »
Girls, Season 3, Episode 1, “Female Only”
Written by Lena Dunham
Directed by Lena Dunham
Written by Jenni Konner
Directed by Lena Dunham
Airs Sundays at 10pm (Est) on HBO
A common complaint from Girls viewers is that the protagonists are quite unsympathetic, especially its main character Hannah Horvath (Lena Dunham). This criticism seems to have made it into this episode. The story picks up a few months after the traumatic events of Season Two, and Hannah’s life is actually pretty stable by her standards. She is living with Adam (Adam Driver) and is having her work regularly published online. Marnie (Allison Williams) is coming off a painful breakup, but is moving into a new apartment. Shoshanna (Zosia Mamet) is getting the most out of her last year in college by alternating between “sexual adventures” and studying. Jessa (Jemima Kirke) is in rehab. In “Female Only”, Dunham uses outside observers, »
