Galavant: Two Takes on Season 1, Including the Mildly 'Meh' Finale

25 January 2015 6:00 PM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

ABC’s Galavant wrapped its eight-episode freshman run on Sunday night by installing a new face on the throne, leaving another princess to be saved and sending two frenemies on a slow boat to… where, Mist Haven? Who knows.

Here, TVLine’s two biggest Galavant fans (Galafans?), Editor-at-Large Matt Webb Mitovich and West Coast Reporter Rebecca Iannucci, reflect on the ambitious musical-comedy’s maiden voyage and express reservations about what any possible Season 2 would look like.

We come here to primarily celebrate ABC’s Galavant as a whole, though I admittedly came away from the finale feeling a bit “meh. »

The Most Awkward Adult Celeb Appearances on Kid Shows

23 January 2015 7:00 AM, PST | VH1.com | See recent VH1.com news »

-Aly Semigran

Popular kid shows like Sesame Street, Yo Gabba Gabba!, and Spongebob Squarepants aren’t always just for kids. Grown-ups have been known to not only tune in to the children’s-friendly programming (hey, some of them are really good!), but even appear on said shows. While stars like Jon Hamm, Ricky Gervais, Sarah Silverman , and Amy Poehler made the best of their time and had some seriously awesome cameos, other celebrities haven’t made quite the same impression. We’ve compiled the seven most awkward, inappropriate, or downright strange appearances by adults on kid shows.

Cake” star backs one team in the Super Bowl battle between the New England Patriots and the Seattle Seahawks, with Fallon backing the other

After heaping praise on Jimmy Fallon for the way he was interviewing her on “The Tonight Show” Wednesday night, Jennifer Aniston admitted that she kind of wanted to interview Jennifer Aniston, too. Usher in the latest installment of “Lip Flip.”

The “Cake” star tried to add silly body movements to Fallon’s various voices as he had her act like a super-bro, a Bonnaroo enthusiast and even Billy Bob Thronton from “Sling Blade.”

17 Questions We Have After Watching the Golden Globes

12 January 2015 2:21 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler may have answered a lot of our questions last night (Andy Serkis played Reese Witherspoon’s backpack in Wild, J.K. Simmons is short for Just Keep Simmons), but the 2015 Golden Globes left us with plenty more. Like...

1. Will Jessica Chastain ever recover from that Bill Cosby joke?

Or is that how she reacts to every joke? Because it’s pretty similar to how she reacted two years ago when Tina and Amy told that joke about James Cameron. Someone tell her a not at all controversial joke and see what happens.

2. Why was Joaquin Phoenix there?

Besides providing the punch line to one of the night’s best jokes. Yeah, he was nominated for Inherent Vice, but he also thinks award shows are bullsh*t, so...

3. What happens if Benedict Cumberbatch doesn’t photobomb someone at an awards show? Does the world end? Does he actually turn into that dragon from Lord »

The best and worst of the 72nd Golden Globes

12 January 2015 8:35 AM, PST | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler returned as hosts for what they dubbed the “72nd and final” Golden Globe Awards on January 11. The big winners of the night were Boyhood -- which won three awards, including Best Picture, Drama – and Birdman, which won two awards.

With a room full of famous actors, actresses, directors, and a handful of “normals,” Tina and Amy framed the Golden Globes with their usual easy grace and charm. Unfortunately, however, it seemed like the lack of air conditioning in the Beverly Hilton Hotel scared off the dynamic duo. Their combined screen time was minimal, to say the least, and we unfortunately didn’t get a “Matt Damon, you’re basically a garbage person” kind of laugh.

They did, however, manage to once again scandalize Jessica Chastain. The redheaded actress looked on in shock as the comedians attempted their best Bill Cosby impressions. Did she look more »

So long, Tina and Amy: Who should host the Golden Globes next?

12 January 2015 7:46 AM, PST | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

George Clooney, last night's Lifetime Achievement Award winner at the Golden Globes, thinks Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are "the best hosts of the show"—and with all due respect to their naughty predecessor, Ricky Gervais, he's right.* But with their three-year residency at the Globes now complete, it's now time to begin the challenging task of finding their successor, or successors. There's no shortage of obvious candidates, beginning with the collection of celebs who already dominate the hosting circuit. Jimmy Fallon and Seth Meyers have to be at the top of NBC's list, considering their experience and their affiliation with the network. »

Turn Down For What? Stars Party Hard at The Weinstein Company's Golden Globes Bash

12 January 2015 7:27 AM, PST | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

After the show, it's the afterparty! A-listers gathered at Harvey Weinstein's annual Golden Globes bash on Sunday, and there was no shortage of fun candid moments. Kate Hudson chatted it up with Marchesa designer - and wife of Harvey Weinstein - Georgina Chapman, while Harvey himself was surrounded with a bevy of beauties like Lorde, Taylor Swift, Jaime King, and Danielle Haim. As Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan hit the dance floor, Jennifer Lopez stayed close to her red carpet date and The Boy Next Door costar Ryan Guzman, and Rita Ora and Cara Delevingne got cheeky across the room. Big Eyes' Amy Adams and Christoph Waltz fought over a cheeseburger, and Helen Mirren snacked on french fries; nearby, Jake Gyllenhaal chilled with 50 Cent, and Will Arnett held Ricky Gervais in his arms like a little baby. You won't believe how much fun these celebs had - scroll »

Ricky Gervais On His Quvenzhane Flub: Still Better Than Travolta!

12 January 2015 6:26 AM, PST | Access Hollywood | See recent Access Hollywood news »

Ricky Gervais got a little tongue tied when it came to pronouncing Quvenzhane Wallis correctly on Sunday at the Golden Globes.

While presenting the 2015 Golden Globe for Best Actress in a Musical or Comedy, Ricky called the "Annie" actress "Quaven Johhny" Wallis (or something to that effect!).

The name flub might sting even more because the actor and former Golden Globes host went on to bring up John Travolta's now infamous Idina Menzel/Adele Dazeem flub from the 2014 Oscars.

The 10 Drunkest Moments From the 2015 Golden Globes

12 January 2015 5:50 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

There's one thing that sets the Golden Globes apart from most awards shows, and it's not the glamour or the location or the glitz or the fact that they niftily separate nominees between drama and comedy categories. No. It's the booze. Everyone at the Golden Globes has the opportunity, should they so desire, to get stinking drunk. And many of them indulge in this opportunity.

While watching last night we couldn't help but take stock of the most drunken moments of this year's Golden Globes. Please be sure to tell us whether or not you think these were actual drunken moments and what drunken shenanigans we missed while trying to compose clever tweets.

1. Everyone Sweating

Was it a weird trick of the uniformly awful lighting or was everyone sweating? It didn't matter if you were a fresh-faced ingénue or a old-school superstar, everyone got on that stage and looked like »

Golden Globes 2015: The Top 5 Amy and Tina Moments

12 January 2015 3:28 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

It was widely reported that this year's Golden Globes show would be the swan song for amazing co-hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, news that put us through the five stages of grief pretty quickly (followed by lots of heavy milkshake-drinking). The duo have hosted the glittery awards show for the past three years, exposing the inherently sexist, silly nature of Hollywood but doing with such good-natured aplomb that it never came across as acid or mean-spirited (like the infamous previous host Ricky Gervais).

What was kind of upsetting about last night, though, was how little Tina and Amy were actually given to do. It felt like last night the dynamic duo had the least amount of screen time out of any of their gigs. After a terrific monologue (more on that in a minute), they were largely sidelined, interjecting where they could but mostly silent (or hidden backstage somewhere »

2015 Golden Globe winners

11 January 2015 10:16 PM, PST | ChannelGuideMag | See recent ChannelGuideMag news »

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler went into the Golden Globes knowing this was their last year as hosts, and with that came no fear. That said they gave a big warm welcome to kick off the night: “Welcome, you bunch of despicable, spoiled, minimally talented brats!” And, then followed it up with taking jabs at North Korea, Bill Cosby and a handful of celebrities. “Tonight we celebrate all the great television shows we know and love, as well as all the movies that North Korea was O.K. with,” Fey said. As a presenter this year, Ricky Gervais — drink in … Continue reading →

14 Biggest Golden Globes Snubs and Surprises

11 January 2015 8:40 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The Golden Globes are known for their unpredictability, and this year’s awards delivered surprise wins and stunning snubs in both film and TV categories. The fact that “Boyhood” was the big winner — bringing home wins for motion picture (drama), director and supporting actress — was among the least surprising results of the evening. Ditto victories for Michael Keaton, Julianne Moore and J.K. Simmons. But that’s pretty much where the easy calls came to an end.

14 of the biggest snubs and surprises from the 2015 Golden Globes:

Surprise: “The Grand Budapest Hotel”

Released all the way back in March, Wes Anderson’s characteristically quirky period comedy hasn’t been at the forefront of awards season discussions so far — except lately, it has been popping up in the most unexpected places (SAG’s ensemble category for one). The Globes victory over heavy favorite “Birdman” (which still garnered wins for best screenplay and »
