Would UK entry Electro Velvet fare better than our last duo Jemini, who got nul points in 2003? How did special guest Australia get on? Stuart Heritage was there for every last Eurovision second
And now we are done. Sincerest congratulations to Sweden, and commiserations to all the other contestants, uniformly doomed as they are to become embedded YouTube clips in endless ‘What the hell was all that about’ Eurovision precursor articles a decade from now.
Now, while we go through our own individual post-Eurovision decompression routines – I don’t know about you, but mine involves putting my head into a metal bin and shouting ‘Why?’ over and over again until I tumble into the comforting arms of unconsciousness – it’s time for me to thank you. Whoever you are, wherever you come from, I appreciate you hanging out with me this evening. If you want to follow me on Twitter, »

It's so rare to find a summer blockbuster that isn't based on a comic book or video game, that when one comes along, I'm immediately drawn to it. I'll admit that is my primary reason for wanting to check out Tomorrowland (2015), which stars George Clooney as a former boy genius who embarks on a quest to a fictional world where science and imagination know no bounds.
Tomorrowland also looks to give Clooney a role unlike any other he's taken on as a paranoid recluse with powerful secrets lurking inside his head. In honor of Tomorrowland's release, I thought I'd revisit one of my favorite Clooney roles which, although unknown to many, remains loved by those who have seen it.
Written and directed by the Coen Brothers, Intolerable Cruelty (2003) stars Clooney as Miles Massey, Los Angeles' most cunning divorce attorney, who is able to make any cheating spouse in town »

The 70-year-old actor “spoiled” his wife – with who he has children Dylan, 14, and Carys, 12 – on Mother’s Day at the weekend because she deserved to be treated well.
Explaining he presented Catherine with flowers and gifts, Michael added: “[And I gave her] lots of love and affection. I lucked out, I really lucked out.”
His thrilled wife said: “It was one of the best days I’ve had in many, many years, we were all together, I got spoiled rotten, I must be doing something right.”
While they are happy in their marriage, the couple – who split briefly in 2013 – have mixed opinions on working together.
Catherine, 45, said: “If he wasn’t my husband, I’d like to work with Michael Douglas, it’s true, he’s a great actor.”
However, her spouse told ‘Extra': “I would like to work with you any way I can get you, »

Natalie Portman and husband-to-be Benjamin Millepied on the Red Carpet Natalie Portman and Benjamin Millepied at the Oscars Best Actress winner Natalie Portman and Benjamin Millepied (at the time, Portman's husband-to-be)* arrive at the 2011 Academy Awards ceremony held on Feb. 27 at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood. Portman took home the Oscar for her performance as a mentally unstable ballerina in Darren Aronofsky's psychological drama Black Swan. An international box office hit, Black Swan was also a Best Picture nominee, ultimately losing the Oscar to Tom Hooper's The King's Speech. Besides Natalie Portman and dancer-choreographer Benjamin Millepied, also in the Black Swan cast are Mila Kunis, Winona Ryder, Barbara Hershey, and Vincent Cassel. Portman's fellow Best Actress contenders were: Annette Bening for The Kids Are All Right. Michelle Williams for Blue Valentine. Nicole Kidman for Rabbit Hole. Jennifer Lawrence for Winter's Bone. Natalie Portman had been previously nominated in »

This week marks the 10th anniversary of the release of "Crash" (on May 6, 2005), an all-star movie whose controversy came not from its provocative treatment of racial issues but from its Best Picture Oscar victory a few months later, against what many critics felt was a much more deserving movie, "Brokeback Mountain."
The "Crash" vs. "Brokeback" battle is one of those lingering disputes that makes the Academy Awards so fascinating, year after year. Moviegoers and critics who revisit older movies are constantly judging the Academy's judgment. Even decades of hindsight may not always be enough to tell whether the Oscar voters of a particular year got it right or wrong. Whether it's "Birdman" vs. "Boyhood," "The King's Speech" vs. "The Social Network," "Saving Private Ryan" vs. "Shakespeare in Love" or even "An American in Paris" vs. "A Streetcar Named Desire," we're still confirming the Academy's taste or dismissing it as hopelessly off-base years later. »

It sounds like Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones are enjoying marital bliss! The "Ant-Man" actor stops by Thursday's "The Ellen DeGeneres Show," where he opens up about his separation from the "Chicago" star. The couple briefly separated in 2013, after each battled some health issues -- Catherine was seeking medical help for her bipolar disorder just months before the split and in 2010, Douglas was treated for cancer. Nevertheless, it seems like both A-listers are happy and healthy these days ... even though it was a bit of a struggle to get to this place. "It can’t be a one-way street, but I’m crazy about her and yeah I think every couple has their difficult times," Douglas tells Ellen about overcoming their marital issues. "The only problem is, as you well know, we’re all in the public eye and it tends to get a little more exposed than most. But »

Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones' marriage is back on track. The famous couple took "some time apart to evaluate and work on their marriage" beginning in May 2013. Though they lived separately for months, by year's end, the Academy Award-winning actress returned to the family's New York City apartment. The two continued to work on their marriage, and on Thursday, Douglas revealed to Ellen DeGeneres that he and Zeta-Jones have officially reconciled. "I love that you and Catherine worked things out. I know you had a little separation and I think that's a great message to send to people, that even if you have trouble, you can get through it," DeGeneres said. The actor »

As series co-creator Peter Horton explains, “Three-and-a-half years ago, I had been working with my writing partners, Adam Armus and Kay Foster, on a different project that didn’t work out, so we were looking for something else to do. [British producer] Simon Maxwell came to us and said, »

There used to be a time when nothing was more cringe-worthy than a middle-aged action hero. Remember Roger Moore smooching Bond Girls 30 years his junior in the twilight years of his 007 reign? Or Sean Connery trying to recapture the glory days next to Catherine Zeta-Jones in Entrapment? That was then and this is now.
The slightly creaking older leading man is now a sizeable mini-industry in itself, primarily thanks to Liam Neeson's Bryan Mills in the Taken series. Beyond that Denzel Washington had The Equalizer, Kevin Costner had 3 Days to Kills and every action icon you remember from the '80s united for The Expendables.
The latest seasoned star to throw his hat into the still-got-lead-in-the-pencil ring is Sean Penn, teaming with »
Although Supergirl, Catwoman and Elektra are movies that exist, there are times when we wish they didn’t. To be honest, the ‘perfect’ female-headlined superhero movie is still the stuff of our cinematic dreams. Saying that, TV’s Agent Carter provided us with a brilliant example of bringing a female comic book character to the small screen earlier this year, which hopefully Hollywood will learn a lot from going forward.
Of course, Wonder Woman and Captain Marvel will be joining their respective cinematic universes soon, with Supergirl getting a pop at small screen success too. It looks like female comic book heroes will be getting the attention they deserve in the live action realm, finally.
This isn’t the first time the powers-that-be in Hollywood have tried to launch a slate of female superheroes, »

What feels like a million years ago*, it was announced that new emoji would be released to correct a few issues: 1) No taco emoji. 2) No middle finger emoji. 3) Most importantly of all, literally no diversity among the emoji people, minus the stereotypical Asian face and Indian man in a turban.
(*June of 2014)
Now, they're finally coming: Apple’s new beta software reveals over 300 new emoji, including 32 flags of various countries, alternate family types, and the ability to select an emoji and change its skin tone:
Each emoji representing people on Apple platforms now offers a choice of skin color, with abstract color as the base. pic.twitter.com/VsksabEjmM

All human emojis -- including Santa! -- are customizable, which seems like a good start to fixing Apple’s emoji diversity problem. Except uuuuuuuuuuum, what is that yellow face supposed to be?
As all 29 of our Oscars Experts predicted, Julianne Moore won Best Actress for "Still Alice" on Sunday night. She played the title character, a linguistics professor diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer's disease, a role that had already earned her a slew of awards: she won at the Golden Globes, Critics' Choice, SAG, and BAFTA Awards. -Break- This was Moore's fifth attempt at Oscar glory. She first contended in 1997 for her supporting role in "Boogie Nights" but lost to Kim Basinger ("L.A. Confidential"). Two years later, she reaped the first of her Best Actress bids for "The End of the Affair" but was edged out by Hilary Swank ("Boys Don't Cry"). And in 2002, she contended in both categories -- lead for "Far from Heaven" and supporting for "The Hours" -- but was defeated by Nicole Kidman ("The Hours") and Catherine Zeta-Jones ("Chicago"), respectively.

All eyes will be on Keira Knightley at this year’s Academy Awards. The mom-to-be is not only nominated for an Oscar but she's also dressing for two! She’s not the first to rock a baby bump on the Oscars red carpet. Here's a look at seven other A-listers who rocked the “accessory” at the big event.
In 1983, Meryl Streep was nominated for her fourth Academy Award and expecting her second child. What she didn't expect was another Oscar. That night Streep won for her lead role in Sophie's Choice. When asked backstage what she would tell her future daughter about the big night, the actress responded, "That she was here."
Catherine Zeta-Jones found her self in the same boat as Streep in 2003. The Chicago star was just about ready to pop when she collected her Best Supporting Actress Oscar.

NBC’s highly anticipated “Saturday Night Live” 40th anniversary special kicked off Sunday night with a red carpet overflowing with some of the biggest names in the entertainment world.

Want to take a guess on which event had the biggest turnout of superstars that cross the worlds of movies, music, TV and sports? The Golden Globes? Not this past show. The Grammys? Maybe, but really just from the music biz. Next Sunday's Academy Awards? We've seen the presenters so far and we're not sure it even matches the Globes. No, the entertainment capital of the world on Sunday was "Saturday Night Live's" 40th anniversary celebration. Obviously, many of the returning cast members of "SNL" are huge stars in their own right. Will Ferrell, Bill Murray, Jimmy Fallon, Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, Kristen Wiig, Adam Sandler, Chris Rock, Mike Myers, Billy Crystal and the one and only Eddie Murphy were all on hand. Frequent hosts such as Alec Baldwin, Steve Martin, Tom Hanks, Justin Timberlake and John Goodman also stopped by (and quite possibly stole a little bit of »

"Fifty Shades of Grey" is in theaters this weekend. Have you heard? In celebration of this stunning cinematic achievement, we've trawled through all the streaming sites to bring you a list of five worthwhile erotic thrillers to watch online right now! Particularly useful for those who, you know, aren't interested in seeing "50 Shades" (they do exist!) but are nevertheless jonesing for some steely sexual tension to spice up their weekends. "Basic Instinct" (1992) The film that made Sharon Stone a star is still one of her best. Watch the aesthetically-gifted stunner command the screen with that placid, aquamarine stare. Forget the "no undies" leg crossing (or don't!) -- that interrogation scene is a classic for way better reasons than a single shot of Stone's naughty parts. "Nymphomaniac Pts. I and II" (2014) How about four hours of erotic thrillerisms? Charlotte Gainsbourg's commanding underbite does some of its best work in Lars von Trier »
