Laurie Feels Validated with Emmy Nomination

15 July 2005 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

British actor Hugh Laurie is thrilled with his Emmy nomination because it's made him feel like he's in the right career after more than two decades in the business. Laurie received a nod in the Best Actor in a Drama category for his efforts in acclaimed medical show House, and he admits it's finally made him feel validated. He tells the Hollywood Reporter, "I'm still reeling. I'm still taking it all in. I've been doing this for 20-odd years and never really been sure that I've been doing the right thing, that I've been in the right place at the right time. It's wonderful to feel at last that maybe I didn't pick the wrong career, that I didn't take a wrong turning, that maybe this is something that I ought to be doing." Laurie, who attributes the show's success to the writing, will vie for the award with James Spader, Ian McShane, Hank Azaria and Kiefer Sutherland on September 18 in Los Angeles. »

Hilton's TV Appearance Put On Hold for Carson Tribute

26 January 2005 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Paris Hilton's plans to promote the third season of her reality show The Simple Life were put on hold last night, as chat show bosses paid tribute to TV legend Johnny Carson. The hotel heiress and British actor Ian McShane were scheduled to appear on Jay Leno's Tonight Show last night, but following the Sunday death of Carson, producers of the show recruited Ed McMahon, Bob Newhart, Don Rickles and Drew Carey to honor the beloved star. In between clips of Carson's 30-year run as host of the Tonight Show - which he handed over to Leno in 1992 - the late star's old pals remembered the Iowa native. KD Lang, who became a personal favorite of Carson's after appearing on his show in 1987, performed "Simple" at the end of the hour-long tribute. Also last night, Scottish comedian Craig Ferguson abandoned his usual monologue to pay tribute to Carson, whom he became a fan of during his first visit to America in 1976. »
