Clips of It’s A Wonderful Life appear in all sorts of TV shows and films, some predictable Christmas fare and some you might not expect…
Thanks to NBC’s long-standing tradition of airing Frank Capra’s 1946 festive fantasy drama every 24th of December, It’s A Wonderful Life has become a Stateside Christmas institution. The film’s story of a small town family man facing financial ruin being coaxed back from suicide by an angel who shows him how important he is to the world is now as festive as overspending and overeating.
Its ubiquity means that It’s A Wonderful Life is one of the first ports of call when shows and movies want to inject a festive feel into their fictional worlds, hence it having been subject to more on-screen references, quotes, parodies and homages than you can shake a jingle bell at.

The 21st Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards Nominations were revealed Wednesday morning, serving as yet another precursor on the long road to the Oscars.
In the film categories, Birdman was the big winner, scoring four nominations, including for Michael Keaton, Edward Norton and Emma Stone, as well as the collective ensemble cast. Boyhood followed right in its footsteps with three nods for Ethan Hawke, Patricia Arquette and another ensemble nomination.
The big surprises of the morning’s nominations started with Jake Gyllenhaal for Nightcrawler, a bubble contender in a crowded Best Actor race, Jennifer Aniston for Cake, a bubble contender in a disappointingly less crowded Best Actress race, Robert Duvall in the poorly reviewed The Judge and Naomi Watts for St. Vincent (Watts was in Birdman as well, but that must’ve slipped SAG’s minds).

Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Leading Role

As some of you may know, I'm a bit of a jack(ass) of all trades. I follow the film industry for Lr, and critique films. But I'm also an actor, I front a rock band, I'm a DJ, film editor, and director as well. Basically, when it comes to entertainment, there's nothing I don't do. For some time now, I've been mulling over bringing some of my other interests to Lr, and I'll be starting with the SAG Awards. How? Well, I've been a member of SAG for 6 years now and I also am part of the voting process. That means every year I am sent screeners of all the films being considered for awards.
Here's where a new running feature comes into play:
As I start receiving these screeners, I will write special reviews for each one and publish them here. Then, as we near the voting deadline, »

Get your moose mugs ready! It’s time to watch National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation on a loop for the rest of the year. It's been 25 years since Clark Griswold and his family lit up the holiday scene, and we're traveling back in our station wagon to 1989 when Et was invited on set for the holiday classic.
The third installment of the Vacation series starred Chevy Chase and Beverly D'Angelo both reprising their roles as Clark and Ellen Griswold, and the rotating door of actors playing their children (this time Juliette Lewis and Johnny Galecki) as Russ and Audrey.
Instead of heading to Wally World or Europe, the family stayed home to fulfill Clark's hopes of having a good old fashioned family Christmas.

Despite the lottery-esque sounding odds, the U.S Dramatic Competition section which produces the finest American indie specimens such as Frozen River, Winter’s Bone, Blue Valentine, Martha Marcy May Marlene, Beasts of the Southern Wild, Fruitvale Station and Whiplash is fairly consistent in terms of quality. Last year’s crop of sixteen have almost all had their theatrical releases with Kumiko, the Treasure Hunter being the last one out of the gates (pegged with an early 2015 release). Last week we individually looked at our top 80 Sundance Film Fest Predictions (you’ll find 30 other titles worth considering in our intro) and below, we’ve split the list into narrative and non-fiction film items and have both identified and color-coded our picks in an AtoZ cheat sheet. You’ll find 2015′s answer to Whiplash located somewhere in the stack below. Click on the individual titles below, for the film’s profile. »

"I love you, too."
And with those four little words — the entire Big Bang Theory fandom collectively squealed with delight during last week's prom-tastic episode.
Now that Sheldon (Jim Parsons) and Amy (Mayim Bialik) have exchanged the "L" word, it's time to look ahead at what's next for the slow-burning duo, and figure out if Penny (Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting) and Leonard (Johnny Galecki) will ever actually tie to knot.
Only Et's Kevin Frazier was on the set of CBS's beloved geeky comedy and he asked the cast to spill what's next for our favorite couples.

When asked if a Shamy hook-up is on the horizon, Bialik was quick to shut this suggestion down. "I think we're as together as we need to be right now," the former Blossom star said. "I think there's a lot of anticipation and for me I think that's a lot of »

After more than a decade of working in the short form (this includes the 2010 Sundance hit Tub – see below), Bobby Miller landed the attention getting cast of Johnny Galecki, Anna Friel, Kyle Gallner, Oliver Platt and the splendid Anjelica Huston for his feature film debut. The film world is full of garbage comedy-horror genre items and in short supply of standout items. The Master Cleanse went into production this past July/August — here’s hoping that this is a worthy pilgrimage towards enlightenment and is both unique and stunning in concept and design.
Gist: When Paul (Johnny Galecki) is left at the altar by his fiancé and loses his job, he quickly deteriorates into a depressed and meaningless existence. In order to get his life back on track, he signs up for a three-day cleanse retreat sponsored by the creator of ‘The Master Cleanse’, only this cleanse releases something far »

The Big Bang Theory is getting the Lego treatment, joining the pop-culture likes of Harry Potter, Star Wars, and Jurassic Park. That's right, Lego is releasing a set based on the massively popular CBS sitcom, which follows a group of scientists—Leonard (Johnny Galecki), Sheldon (Jim Parsons), Howard (Simon Helberg), Raj (Kunal Nayyar), Bernadette (Melissa Rauch), and Amy (Mayim Bialik)— and their one non-scientist friend, Penny (Kaley Cuoco). The set proposal was submitted to the Lego Ideas program by Alatariel and GlenBricker. (Check out the full proposal here.) Its description reads: "This Lego set proposal is based on the popular »

Et sat the cast down to talk set secrets and baby gossip.
#1: Is Kaley Pregnant?
Johnny Galecki and Kaley Cuoco, who play engaged couple Leonard and Penny on the show, talked with Frazier about their on-screen relationship, but the conversation quickly turned to Cuoco's real-life romance.
The actress married tennis player Ryan Sweeting at the end of last year, and baby rumors are beginning to fly.
"I knew I shouldn’t have worn this!" Cuoco laughed about her choice of a loose draped blouse, as pregnancy talk started immediately.
"The short haircut isn’t helping the pregnancy rumors by the way," Galecki teased, pointing out Cuoco's new pixie cut.
The actress fired back, "What does that mean?"
Galecki attempted to answer, "I don't know »
If you're like us and value your sleep, you probably nodded off into your Ambien dreamland before the party started on post-prime time TV. Don't worry; we've got you covered. Here's the best of what happened last night on late night.
Ellen Pompeo made time out of her busy schedule of new motherhood to to talk to Jimmy Kimmel about how she kept the birth of her child a media secret. Because haven't you heard? She has a beautiful two-month-old infant! Derek Jeter retired from the Yankees (traumatizing New Yorkers city-wide), and talked to Jimmy about the last game he played in Yankee Stadium. Also, we were treated to some footage of Jimmy at the event clapping like a maniac. Sarah Silverman swung by "Late Night" and reminisced with Seth Meyers about her stint on SNL -- specifically the time she stabbed Al Franken in the head with a pencil. »
