Jude Law Has Seen Your Young Pope Memes and He Loves Them

14 January 2017 11:50 AM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

HBO's about to get a little more ridiculous this Sunday, and it's all thanks to Jude Law's The Young Pope.  It appears to be Twitter's favorite show, especially since the trailer debuted, giving us a first look at Lenny, the first American pope who also happens to be the youngest pope, and the smokingest pope, and probably the hottest pope to have ever graced the Vatican. The internet has already embraced the limited series with a passion, unleashing a storm of memes that make it hard to even think about taking the drama seriously. Some have compared Lenny to Amy Poehler's "cool mom" from Mean Girls, while others started changing the lyrics to popular songs to reflect what »

Golden Globes: 11 Secrets From Inside the Ballroom

9 January 2017 12:34 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

On TV, the 74th annual Golden Globes played like a never-ending valentine to “La La Land,” which landed seven awards — more than any other film in history. But inside the Beverly Hills ballroom, the three-hour dinner was more like a party on a cruise ship, with drinking, smoking, and lots of selfies. Here are 11 secrets from inside the Golden Globes.

1. How Jimmy Fallon lost the room

The momentum was on the “Tonight Show” host’s side — for all of five minutes. The pre-recorded introduction, which had Fallon belting his own version of a “La La Land” song, kicked off the evening on a high note. But the problem was, Fallon lost the room as soon as he went live and not just because his teleprompter failed. Presiding over the first major Hollywood gathering since Donald Trump’s election as president, Fallon’s political jokes were too soft. The laughter during »

Golden Globes Score 20 Million Viewers

9 January 2017 11:35 AM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

NBC’s 2017 Golden Globes hauled in 20 million total viewers, according to Nielsen. That’s 1.5 million more than 2016, or up 8 percent year over year. Nice job, Jimmy Fallon. We’ll save you the math: last year, the Ricky Gervais-hosted awards show brought in 18.5 million. In 2015, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler attracted 19.3 million. The 2016 Gervais version landed a 5.5 rating in the key 18-49 demographic, which was down 5 percent from the Fey-Poehler double effort. Fallon’s turn scored a 5.6 rating, 2 percent better than last night. Also Read: Ratings: Green Bay Packers Beat Giants, Golden Globes Read the »

9 January 2017 7:23 AM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Here's to the Golden Globes – what other award show would bring Meryl Streep onstage for a lifetime-achievement tribute and then have the orchestra salute her with Abba's "Mamma Mia"? A perfect moment to sum up everything the Globes stand for: finding the cheese lining in any artistic cloud. That's the saving grace of this dippiest and drunkest of award shows. Nobody cares who wins; all that matters at this TV party is locking the stars up together in the Beverly Hills Hilton, getting them ripped on free booze and »

Golden Globes TV Review: Host Jimmy Fallon Flounders On Dull Awards Show

8 January 2017 8:04 PM, PST | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

If anything was needed to prove that the hosting gig of the Golden Globes should permanently belong to either the acerbic Ricky Gervais or the mocking Tina Fey and Amy Poehler or someone in that vein, Jimmy Fallon's floundering fronting of tonight's ceremony sealed that deal. In the first major awards show since Donald Trump was elected President, the Tonight Show host made it clear this is not a job for nice guys as the NBC broadcast started off tepid and politically… »

Kristen Wiig and Steve Carell Win Golden Globes With Super Depressing Best Animated Film Intro

8 January 2017 6:55 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Why do we not let Kristen Wiig host everything?

Remember when she and Bill Hader somehow one-upped hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler a few years ago? Well, she did it again at tonight's Golden Globes, this time with Steve Carell. The Despicable Me co-stars were on hand to present Best Animated Film and things got hilariously depressing when Wiig asked if Carell remembered the first time he saw an animated film.

"I do, actually. Very well," Carell replied. "It was kind of a big deal. I was six years old and my dad took me to see Fantasia. It was astounding! The music, the spectacle of the whole thing -- it was kind of a life changing experience."

"Yeah," Wiig chimed in. "It's a classic."

Jimmy Fallon promised us a star-studded Golden Globes opening and he did not disappoint.

As with most things in life, Ryan Reynolds steals the show.
