After being diagnosed with Als in 2014, Nanci bravely decided to share her battle with the public to raise awareness and support for the Als community. She and her many friends are “Team Nanci,” and raised over $100,000 for the cause as they participated in the 15th Annual La County Walk to Defeat Als, hosted by The Als Association Golden West Chapter. The 1-mile walk was accessible and open to the public and all funds raised supported the mission priorities of The Als Association Golden West Chapter in care services, public policy, and research. The event had over 2,200 participants who raised nearly $500,000 for the cause.
Tom Hanks, James Corden, Diane Sawyer, Heidi Klum, Melanie Griffith, Goldie Hawn, Kate Hudson, Sean Penn, Sophia Bush, Dermot Mulroney, Dita Von Teese, and amfAR Chairman of the Board Kenneth Cole were among those who gathered at Ron Burkle’s Historic Green Acres Estate for the eighth annual amfAR Gala Los Angeles.
The event paid tribute to Academy Award-winning actress, Julia Roberts, in recognition of her profound commitment to the fight against HIV/AIDS, as well as countless other humanitarian causes. The gala, presented by Harry Winston, M•A•C Viva Glam, and Amtd Group, raised over $2 million for amfAR’s life-saving research programs.
Cheyenne Jackson, Natasha Bedingfield, Victoria Justice, Busy Philipps, Julianne Nicholson, Ryan Murphy, Cara Santana and Jesse Metcalfe, Maria Cuomo Cole, Selita Ebanks, Bethenny Frankel, Ashley Greene, Connie Britton, Colton Haynes, Jeff Leatham, Patricia Bonaldi, Sistine Stallone, Daniel Levy, Viktor Luna, Mia Maestro, Angela Missoni, Ongina, and others were also in attendance. »

In June 2013, the Yarnell wildfire in Arizona spiraled out of control and killed 19 firefighters from nearby Prescott, marking the highest death toll for U.S. firefighters since 9/11. Only one member of the group, a lookout stationed elsewhere, survived the massacre. That’s the setting for “Only the Brave,” but it takes almost the entire running time to get there. The movie is so cautious about avoiding disaster movie tropes that you can practically sense the resistance to arriving at the tragic finale. The result is a tasteful, well-acted bore, but so out of sync with traditional studio filmmaking it deserves some kudos anyway.
The two-hour plus working class drama stars Josh Brolin as the hardened leader of the group and Miles Teller as the eventual lookout struggling to find his place in the pack. That makes it stand apart from other approaches to adaptations of real-life catastrophes: Avoiding the morbid »

Christopher B. Landon’s “Happy Death Day” doesn’t break out its first “Groundhog Day” joke until well into its third act, but the Jason Blum-produced horror film wears its cinematic pedigree with seeming pride. You can practically hear the pitch that sold the film: it’s the classic Bill Murray comedy, but as a horror film — and centered on a bratty co-ed who gets brutally murdered every night, and is forced to relive the whole thing the next day.
Even the most basic of building blocks are in place, from an initially unlikable protagonist to a generous serving of montages and even an overarching message about the power of being a good person (at one point, a character screams, “love is love!” and it’s both totally endearing and hilariously out of place). But while such a formula has been memorably applied to other genres with strong results — earlier this year, »

This wasn’t a great week to be a woman on American Horror Story: Cult — but when has it ever been?
Tuesday’s time jump-happy hour opened at a rally for Kai’s city council campaign, where a shooting left several bystanders either injured or dead. Kai appeared to have been among those hit, though the real “surprise” came when the dust settled — and Ally was the one holding the literal smoking gun.

Actor Dan Amboyer says he was "strongly advised" to keep his sexuality a secret, but when it came to the best day of his life, he had to tell the world!
Amboyer married his longtime boyfriend, 37-year-old financier Eric Berger, on Saturday, and tells People that his nuptials were just as good a time as any to come out as a gay man.
“Being a young actor in the industry, I had a lot of people who strongly advised me to stay quiet,” the 31-year-old Younger star tells the magazine. “That was hard to live with. But I’ve never played a gay role before and I didn’t want to be limited by some strange perception.”

As first revealed during a panel at Saturday’s New Yorker Festival, creator Ryan Murphy has chosen to re-edit the Oct. 10 episode, “Mid-Western Assassin,” which features an eerily similar tragedy. While the shooting has not been entirely cut from the installment, the scene is reportedly less graphic following new edits, with most of the violence taking place off-screen. »

What if Jack London wrote rugged nature tales about his father issues? Filmmakers Alex and Andrew J. Smith's drama is an adaption of a short story from travel writer David Quammen, but you can clearly see the influence – and could easily imagine the Call of the Wild author seeing their male weepie about a son, a stoic dad and the snowy mountains of Montana and silently wiping his manly tears on his flannel shirtsleeves. David (Josh Wiggins) is a city kid going to visit his pops, Cal (Matt Bomer), in big sky country. »
So deeply rooted in metaphor and allegory that it might as well be called “father!,” Alex and Andrew Smith’s “Walking Out” is a strong coming-of-age adventure that buries its vaguely biblical underpinnings beneath the heavy snows of a Jack London epic. Updated from a short story by naturalist David Quammen, it begins as a movie about the circle of life, and then thaws into a movie about survival. But while that might seem like a counterintuitive transition or even a contradiction in terms, this ruggedly elemental journey subsists on the raw knowledge that can be found in the space between the virtues we decide and the values we inherit. Many viewers could be left cold — especially as the Smith men track their characters with a hunter’s patience, and wait until the last possible moment to pull the trigger on the tragedy that defines them — but those interested in »

The roster-changing episode begins with Bob and Beverly — whose names, in any other context, would sound like the title of an old-school sitcom — arguing over her sensationalized reporting of the serial killings.
