There still seems to be some question about the conscience clause added to the National Defense Appropriations Bill. Some are calling it a license to bully, but others say it simply allows an out for soldiers while maintaining the rules against actions and speech. Generally speaking, if a law if worded that poorly, it will be implemented inconsistently.

Author and screenwriter says sorry for suggesting The Hurt Locker director only won Oscars because she was 'a hot woman'
The author and screenwriter Bret Easton Ellis has apologised to film-maker Kathryn Bigelow for suggesting on Twitter that the director of The Hurt Locker had only won Oscars because she was "a hot woman".
Ellis, who has become well known in recent years years for his loose-lipped tweets, received a barrage of criticism from fellow users of the microblogging service after making the offending comments during a discussion about the likely winner of next year's Oscar for best film.
Bigelow's Zero Dark Thirty was at the time considered an early frontrunner after picking up prizes from a succession of critics' bodies. After referencing his subject's "ok" back catalogue, Ellis wrote: "Kathryn Bigelow would be considered a mildly interesting film-maker if she was a man but since she's a very hot woman she's really overrated. »

It’s now horribly clear that we’re in a critic groupthink year for films. Zero Dark Thirty has become a veritable magnet for Best Picture awards, obliterating almost everything in its path.
While this was not completely unexpected, it is more than a little disappointing.
Not because Zdt is a bad film, but with so many high quality films released this year (or soon to be) we should, logically, be hearing four or five films heralded as Best Picture. We aren’t. This phenomenon has been increasing in frequency for the last few years, and I can only attribute that to a supreme lack of independent thought from the various critics.
Ha, ha! We were the only movies critics liked this year.
Ironic that this is all from a group of professionals who spend the vast majority of the year bi*ching and moaning about the lack of creative thought in Hollywood. »
There's one true fact known to mankind on the holidays: Santa Claus has a very heavy load to traipse across the globe in a single night. It's a lot for one man to take on by himself. So maybe you should ask for the perfect gift that weighs only .0 lbs. A digital download of your favorite movie! Or, you can add a little heft to his bulging bag, and opt for the Blu-ray or DVD. Either way, Santa's dislocated spine will thank you.
Sure, a tablet only weighs around 1.5 pounds, maybe less. But a DVD or Blu-ray really is the perfect gift. They're fairly cheap, everyone likes watching their favorite movie, and 2012 has been a pretty great year for blockbusters that everyone, including your finicky aunt and your oh-so-cool, hipster brother, will want to watch again and again. Nearly 98% of the people on this planet liked Marvel's The Avengers, and »

AfterElton readers know what's Hot in Hollywood. We're a community of voracious yet discerning pop culture consumers, so when it comes to TV, movies, web series and celebrities... tourniquet be damned, our finger is on the bloody pulse! This year in our first annual Hot in Hollywood poll our readers cast over 800,000 votes (yes, you read that correctly) crowning winners in 21 different categories, everything from Favorite Movie Beefcake to Guilty TV Pleasure to Child Actor We Don't Hate.
There were some tight races (Favorite Web Series, Favorite TV Beefcake and Greatest TV Villain) and a couple gimmes (Teen Wolf obviously had a lock on Favorite TV Sidekick), but the big surprise was how evenly distributed the love was. No single TV or film project took home more than one or two awards.
All in all, it was an impressive launch for the first annual Hot in Hollywood Awards, and our »

Ty Burrell is going to star in the new Muppet movie as an Interpol agent, which makes sense as Ty is pretty much half Muppet to begin with.
Is gay culture dead?
In perhaps the creepiest news I've heard in a while, Verizon has applied for a patent on a DVR that watches you while you watch TV. It will know if you're eating, cuddling, screaming at the television, and serve up advertising based on that. Does this mean I have to have an electronics-free room, for you know, "me time?" I don't need to suddenly see eHarmony ads popping up.
With G4 going the way of the dinosaur, NBC Universal is in talks with Esquire to brand the channel as an upscale men's network. The good news is that John Barrowman would still be a fit as a guest host on just about anything.

Who will land the roles of Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele in the movie 'Fifty Shades of Grey?' Don't expect to see Matt Bomer seducing Keira Knightley, both actors appear to be out for any role. Gather.Com notes that even though Bomer is a fan favorite for many, he's likely way too old (the character Christian Grey is 27 years old and Matt is 35) and Keira doesn't want the sex filled role as Ana in the movie. The 27-year-old actress will ''definitely'' not be starring in the hotly-anticipated adaptation of E.L. James' erotic novel, which details S&M-crazed billionaire Christian Grey's relationship with young student Anastasia Steele. Asked whether her next film project would be a more risque literary adaptation than she has done in the past, Keira insisted: ''No, it's not. It's not going to be 'Fifty Shades of Grey.' You know, I normally don't »
Ellis delivers latest Twitter gaffe by suggesting a man wouldn't have won best director Oscar with The Hurt Locker
The novelist and screenwriter Bret Easton Ellis has found himself embroiled in yet another Twitter row after suggesting that the Oscar-winning director of The Hurt Locker, Kathryn Bigelow, is "overrated" due to being a "very hot woman".
Ellis is famous for his run-on 140-character rants on the microblogging service and previously landed himself in hot water when he suggested that the homosexual Us actor Matt Bomer was "too gay" to star in an upcoming film adaptation of the knee-trembling literary sensation Fifty Shades of Grey. He also compared watching the TV show Glee to stepping "into a puddle of HIV" last year and joked about holding a party following the death of The Catcher in the Rye author Jd Salinger in 2010.

Bret Easton Ellis, who made headlines earlier this year for his Matt Bomer Twitter tirade and defending Paris Hilton's anti-gay remarks, proved Wednesday that he's an equal opportunity offender. The author, best known for "American Psycho," slams "Zero Dark Thirty" director, Kathryn Bigelow, this time.
But he didn't stop there. Next he decided to call out her specific films, including "The Hurt Locker" for which she won an Oscar (ahem, the first Best Director win by a woman).
And to his haters, he writes on Thursday, "Anyone Unfollowing me should have »
Bret Easton Ellis has never been one to hold back his opinions on Twitter (see: Paris Hilton, Matt Bomer). Now, he's directing his 140-character vitriol at a most unlikely of targets: Zero Dark Thirty helmer Kathryn Bigelow. The motormouthed author took to Twitter Wednesday night to slam the filmmaker—the first woman to win an Oscar for Best Director—for her success mainly because of her gender. Oh, yes: He went there. Fifty Shades of bitter? Bret Easton Ellis calls casting gay Matt Bomer "ludicrous" "Kathryn Bigelow would be considered a mildly interesting filmmaker if she was a man but since she's a very hot woman she's really overrated," the »
Since this was a Survivor episode about important things like God's plan and Lisa's hot brother, allow me to begin with an important confession: I rooted against Malcolm last night. Now stop crying! Listen up! I'm no turncoat and I still want to bathe in his gnarled locks, but it's hard not to sympathize with underlings Lisa and Skupin, who are still semi-oblivious to how sealed their fates are. We're all having such a good time with this delicious Survivor season that we're forgetting how Malcolm and Denise remain this game's unholy, yet even-keel sorcerers. Yes, Denise was almost eliminated last week, but thanks to the control that she and Malcolm exert over Lisa, she's still dominating this island with the sheer force of her 31-pound frame. If Lisa and Skupin have any sense, they'll recruit Abi to vote off Malcolm or Denise next week. But is that even possible? »
Early Monday, Adler tweeted a shot of Bomer with the comedy's leads, Andrew Rannells and Justin Bartha. Bomer is set to appear in an an upcoming episode as Bryan's (Rannells) "sexy ex-boyfriend," according to Ep Ryan Murphy, who tweeted the news. Since Bryan and David recently got engaged, we're wondering if Bomer's appearance is designed to stir up some jealousy ... And if your partner has an ex who looks like that, who wouldn't be intimidated?
Check out the trio below.

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas on The New Normal this Tuesday (9:30/8:30c), and we’ve got your exclusive first look at what the freshman NBC comedy has in store for the holidays.

Julia Roberts met up with some of her famous friends for lunch at Hal's Bar and Grill in Venice, CA, yesterday. She was joined by her August: Osage County costars Ewan McGregor (and his wife, Eve Mavrakis), Dermot Mulroney, and Julianne Nicholson for a casual meal. Filming has reportedly wrapped on the production, but it appears the friends are intent on keeping in touch. Julia's next project pairs her with another fellow A-lister, Brad Pitt. Brad's production company, Plan B, is producing The Normal Heart, which is set to star Julia alongside Matt Bomer and Alec Baldwin. As for Ewan, he's got an exciting few months ahead. His name has been thrown around recently as Oscar buzz is building around his gripping role in The Impossible. It appears Ewan's already got Angelina Jolie on his side, so it's possible he could get Julia's support as well. Dermot may not be »

Who should star as Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele in the movie 'Fifty Shades of Grey?' The results of an online poll have a wide selection of possible actors to assume the role of Christian and a various array of actresses to possibly be cast as Ana, and the two top choices are very attractive TV actors.

The names listed as choices also include Alexander Skarsgard, Matt Bomer, Robert Pattinson, Christian Bale, Bradley Cooper, Channing Tatum, Ed Westwick, Ryan Gosling and Ryan Phillippe . None of the other actors even top 20%. For the role of Anastasia Steele, 'Pretty Little Liars' Lucy Hale has the top spot. She has 25% while no other actress tops 15%. For the role of Ana, »

Steven Soderbergh is a curiosity as a director, and one that makes for strange marketing tactics, and even stranger critical response. As likely to have his films billed as “from the director of x,” as to have no mention of the director at all, his resume is an odd mix that makes it difficult to know if previous films are actually liable to lend interest in his future releases.
From his earliest mark as someone willing to “go odd,” Sex, Lies and Videotape, to the titles that put him on the map (Erin Brockovich, Traffic, Ocean’s 11, etc.), there hasn’t really been an overriding cohesiveness to his projects that would convince massive audiences to rush to opening day based on his involvement. Erin Brockovich, for example, does not necessarily suggest the right things to Ocean’s 11 crowds.
What has largely remained true of his films is that critics, like »
