‘Hairspray Live!’: Jennifer Hudson, Ariana Grande Draw Raves in NBC’s Musical

7 December 2016 8:11 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Jennifer Hudson and Ariana Grande generated major heat on social media for their performances in “Hairspray Live,” NBC’s latest holiday musical production.

The three-hour telecast went off Wednesday night with just a few hitches — some audio glitches, particularly in the outdoor scenes, and some scenes that lacked for lighting. A few stage directions were also audible to viewers. But overall, NBC’s staging of the 1962-set musical inspired by John Waters’ 1988 movie was a crowd-pleaser for tuner lovers.

Star Maddie Baillio, a newcomer with limited experience, held her own against stars Harvey Fierstein (who also penned the teleplay), Martin Short, Derek Hough, Kristin Chenoweth, Dove Cameron, Ephraim Sykes, Andrea Martin and Garrett Clayton.

“Hairspray Live” revolves around a portly white teenage girl’s efforts to integrate the performers on “The Corny Collins Show,” a local Baltimore dance show. Hudson played popular DJ Motormouth Maybelle. Her show-stopping number with the civil rights anthem “I Know Where I »

Here’s how these eight celebs have to say about stripping down in front of the camera.

Exclusive: John Krasinski on Not Reading Reviews and the Moment He Knew He Wanted to Marry Emily Blunt

7 December 2016 9:55 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Can you imagine a more charming, pleasant boss than John Krasinski? While the 37-year-old actor has made a bid for movie stardom in his years since leaving The Office, he's also quietly established himself behind the camera: He made his directorial debut with 2009's Brief Interviews with Hideous Men, in addition to helming several episodes of the NBC sitcom.

This year marked the release of his latest effort, The Hollars, a goofy but heartfelt indie about a man (played by Krasinski) who returns to his hometown when his mom falls ill, forced to deal with his dysfunctional family even as he and his pregnant girlfriend start one of their own. The film premiered at Sundance earlier this year and is now available on DVD. Krasinski got on the phone with Et to talk directing nerves, knowing right away that he would marry Emily Blunt, how fatherhood has changed him, and exactly how "jacked" he'll get for his »

Last Tango in Paris Cinematographer Claims "Nothing Happened During the Shooting"

6 December 2016 4:35 PM, PST | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

This article has been updated with new information and contains a disturbing story of rape and assault. On Friday, a 2013 video of Italian director Bernardo Bertolucci discussing one of his 1972 films, The Last Tango in Paris, resurfaced and caused an uproar. In it, Bertolucci admits that he and the film's leading man, Marlon Brando, conspired to film the movie's infamous "butter" rape scene - in which Brando's character uses a stick of butter to help him rape actress Maria Schneider's character - without the consent of the 19-year-old star. "The sequence of the butter is an idea that I had with Marlon in the morning before shooting," Bertulocci revealed while being interviewed at La Cinémathèque Francaise. Although he said he felt awful "in a way" for his treatment of Schneider, he rationalized it by saying that he "wanted her reaction as a girl, not as an actress." To be clear, »
