At Saturday's Family Equality Council Gala in Beverly Hills, Sarah Paulson let it slip that she almost let something else slip: the big news that Lady Gaga will be starring in next season's American Horror Story. Why? Because it's so cool: "I think nothing in the world could be more exciting. Really ... it's Lady Fucking Gaga! I mean, come on. It's amazing." Now we know that we can trust Paulson with our deepest, darkest secrets — or at least Ryan Murphy can: "I had a bit of an inkling, because the man told me, but I kept it a secret." Well, we can trust her for a few days, at least: "I finally said to him the other day, 'If you don't announce this soon, I'm going to bust. I'm going to say something!' And he was like, 'You can't.' And I was like, 'Well, I'm going to. So »

“Who gets to stand for something and still make people laugh and feel something at the same time?” said “Glee” star Alex Newell on the carpet at Saturday night’s Family Equality Council awards dinner at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.
At the 11th annual awards dinner, the Family Equality Council honored the two series for their impact in advancing cultural conversation about Lgbtq (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender questioning) families, and also paid tribute to Mayor Annise Parker of Houston, Texas, and the brand Honey Maid, for their “This Is Wholesome” campaign.
Sandra Bernhard hosted the event, opening the evening with a performance alongside her band, and telling stories riffing on her daughter. The dinner – part fundraiser, part celebration – shed light on Lgbtq families and the work being done to grant them »

Gather your things from the freak show, because Ryan Murphy's taking us on the road to a new destination that Norman Bates would likely approve of, and the first passenger is now along for the ride. Singer/actress Lady Gaga is checking into the upcoming fifth season of American Horror Story, which has been revealed as American Horror Story Hotel.
No details on Lady Gaga's character are known at this time, but the actress did appear in a brief video wearing a creepy, sparkling mask in her latest Twitter post, which came with the caption, "Make your reservation now. #GagaAHSHotel."

While co-creators Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk remained coy on the specifics of the role, today’s news means that Lady Gaga — aka Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta — is the first talent to commit to the upcoming season. Ahs will serve as the first regular TV role for the pop icon, and her casting is no doubt a major coup for Murphy, Falchuck and FX for one of their flagship series.

When American Horror Story creator Ryan Murphy announced plans to create a companion series centering on infamous crimes throughout national history, then revealed the title of the first season as American Crime Story: The People V. O.J. Simpson, we were all more than a little skeptical. Murphy is not known for his subtlety or grace, but the Simpson murder trial is a true story of murder and deceit, which impacted many people. Now, the more we hear about American Crime Story, the less it seems like it’s going to be a respectful retelling of the trial – instead, it will veer closer to satire.
Vulture recently caught up with the season’s writers Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski (Big Eyes, The People vs. Larry Flynt), who adapted The Run of His Life: The People v. O.J. Simpson by Jeffrey Toobin, and their comments indicate that there will be some »

The more we learn about Ryan Murphy's American Crime Story, the more we're convinced it will be a campy, TV cult classic. The true-crime anthology will cover the O.J. Simpson murder trial in its first season, subtitled The People vs. O.J. Simpson. Vulture caught up with the show's writers Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski (Big Eyes, Ed Wood, The People vs. Larry Flynt), at the Independent Spirit Awards to discuss how the story will take shape."It's going to be a hoot," Alexander told Vulture of what to expect from a cast that includes John Travolta as Robert Shapiro, David Schwimmer as Robert Kardashian, Sarah Paulson as Marcia Clark, and Cuba Gooding Jr. as O.J. Simpson. "The strange thing about the trial is that they [the real-life characters] all shoved themselves onto television and so a lot of lawyers ended up becoming 'personalities,' which is very unusual. So everybody in America »

Greetings, fashion followers and actress admirers! Anne Marie and Margaret here with the Screen Actors Guild Awards edition of Red Carpet Lineup. We're carrying on without Nathaniel this time, since he's over at Sundance walking some red carpets of his own.
Margaret: Color-wise, it was a subdued red carpet, so let's start with some of the ladies in black and white: our queen Viola (Violaaaaaa), it-girl Emma Stone, the Supreme Sarah Paulson, and proud "complicated woman" Maggie Gyllenhaal. Which neutral getup is your favorite?
Anne Marie: Violaaaaaa! Damn, she looked good. She sounded good, too. That speech was wonderful, and almost made me forgive How To Get Away With Murder for its grievous faults. Sarah Paulson, queen of my heart and the master of photobombs, »

Sofía Vergara pinched Reese Witherspoon's bum Sunday on the 2015 SAG Awards red carpet, but she wasn't the only star to get a little handsy! Sarah Paulson gave Bff Amanda Peet a friendly li'l tap on the booty, too, although for these ladies a public butt-grab is chump change... Seriously, because Paulson, 40, has gotten an eyeful of her gorgeous bestie before, and she was quite impressed with what she saw! So when Peet, 43, stripped down for her role in HBO's Togetherness, Paulson told E! News why we had to tune in. News: 5 biggest jaw-droppers at the 2015 SAG Awards!

Hair played a big part at the 2015 SAG Awards—literally. It is the year of the low-key, effortless look. Many stars kept it mild, with soft, relaxed curls and simple updos that made us swoon. But even though the ladies kept it simple, their looks were differentiated and defined by their hair's various split parts. Amy Poehler, Reese Witherspoon, Sarah Paulson and Julie Bowen gave us simple, chic side-parted hair to complement but not overshadow their gorgeous ensembles. This year, the center part has also become the mane event for many an A-lister and was more than present on the SAG Awards red carpet. Keira Knightley's half-up/half-down center part went great with her gentle smoky »
