Monte Design: Modern, Eco-friendly Nursery Furniture

30 December 2010 5:00 AM, PST | People - CelebrityBabies | See recent People - CelebrityBabies news »

Courtesy Monte Design

Ever wonder where the stars turn when it comes time to decorate their baby’s nursery? Look no further than Monte Design Group, a Canadian-based design company that counts celebs including Halle Berry, Amy Poehler, Christina Applegate and Kourtney Kardashian as their biggest fans.

The collection includes everything from high chairs to bassinets, but the gliders are by far the biggest standouts. Each style is a beautiful and can last beyond the late-night rocking and feeding stage, which is nice considering it’s a big investment. Our fave? The Luca glider ($995, above), which like the rest of »

Viveca Paulin, Rhea Durham, David Burtka, Padma Lakshmi and famous partners have best and worst 2010 baby names

29 December 2010 1:57 PM, PST | Pop2it | See recent Pop2it news »

BabyCenter, a popular pregnancy and parenting website, announced its list for the best and worst celebrity baby names of 2010. The results were based on a site poll of almost 2000 parents.

Rhea Durham and David Burtka (and famous partners Mark Wahlberg and Neil Patrick Harris, respectively) find themselves at the top of the best list with classic names Grace Margaret for Rhea and Mark, and Harper Grace for David and Neil. (Interestingly, David and Neil also made the least favorable list with the other twin in their pair, Gideon Scott.)

Topping the worst list are Jamie Oliver's son Buddy Bear, Alicia Keys' son Egypt and Will Ferrell and wife Viveca Paulin's son Axel. We're sure they are all lovely babies, but we kind of agree about the weird names.

"Undeclared" Ep. 15 and 16, "The Perfect Date" / "Hal and Hillary"

22 December 2010 11:54 AM, PST | | See recent IFC news »

"Undeclared" is now airing on IFC, and we thought we'd take this opportunity to revisit the show that further cemented broadcast television's inability to recognize the genius of Judd Apatow. Every week, Matt Singer and Alison Willmore will be offering their thoughts on two more episodes.

Episode 15

The Perfect Date

Written by Judd Apatow & Brent Forrester

Directed by Greg Mottola

Episode 16

Hal and Hillary

Written by Kristofor Brown

Directed by Jay Chandrasekhar

"Intercourse you!" -- Kikuki

We're rapidly approaching the end of "Undeclared," with just one week and one episode left after this column. As "Freaks and Geeks" neared its premature conclusion it reinvested in narrative, bringing Sam Weir and Cindy Sanders' storyline to a head and throwing Lindsay into an existential crisis about what she was going to do with her summer and, by extension, her life. "Undeclared," in contrast, appears to intentionally avoid anything resembling a wrap up. »

The Golden Globes go gay

14 December 2010 11:54 AM, PST | | See recent news »

Welcome to the Gay Globes – er, sorry Golden Globes. With all the gay-themed and gay-favorite nominees this year, you can see how a gal might get confusion. The nominations were announced this morning and the list includes best picture nods for Black Swan and The Kids Are All Right, in drama and comedy respectively.

Both films received four nominations each including a pair of nods for their actresses, with Annette Bening and Julianne Moore for best actress in a comedy and Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis for best actress and supporting actress in a drama. So, to summarize, make out with a lady on screen this year and have a good chance of touching a Globe – er, sorry Golden Globe. If you were doing it right on screen I’m sure hoping you rounded second already. 

The Golden Globe nominations, with their recognition of both movies and TV, are always a mixed bag. »

Golden Globes Snub 'Lost,' Embrace 'Walking Dead'

The always-unpredictable Hollywood Foreign Press Association delivered some surprises in the TV categories.

While the Emmys often serve up nods to the same old favorites, year after year, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association's Golden Globes are beloved for their unpredictability. In the TV category, the domination of shows like "Glee" and "Mad Men" wasn't too surprising, but there were plenty of out-of-left-field choices and sad-face snubs to keep awards-show junkies amused on Tuesday morning (December 14). (Here's a complete list of the 2011 Golden Globe nominations.)

In the drama acting categories, a Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series - Drama nomination for Katey Sagal for her work on FX drama "Sons of Anarchy" (The Atlantic raved that Sagal gave a "riveting performance as matriarch of a corrupt biker family") may have been overshadowed by the "Huh?" factor of "Covert Affairs »

Golden Globes TV predictions: Who's up for a rerun?

12 December 2010 5:18 PM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

We understand that making predictions about Golden Globes nominations is something of a fool's errand. The Hollywood Foreign Press Association isn't the most predictable voting body.

But we think we might have a handle on who will score nominations in the TV categories this year: a lot of the people and shows who were nominated last year. As much as the HFPA likes to honor new shows (a la "Glee" and "Modern Family" last year), there just aren't a ton of award-worthy new series on TV this season. Thus it feels like a lot of the shows and performers up for awards last year will hear their names again at Tuesday's (Dec. 14) nominations press conference.

We're betting that of the 10 series up for best comedy and drama, at least half will be shows that were nominated last year. The same could go for the lead acting categories in comedy and »

On the Set: Parks and Recreation Plans to “Go Big or Go Home” in Season 3

8 December 2010 9:25 PM, PST | TVGuide - Breaking News | See recent TVGuide - Breaking News news »

In a rousing moment from the Season 3 premiere of Parks and Recreation, Leslie Knope excitedly rounds up her disbanded parks department. Tom's been working at Foot Locker, Ron's been in his wood shop, and Jerry ... well, Jerry's been relaxing happily since Pawnee's local government went out of business at the end of last season. With her troops gathered, Leslie makes her Hail Mary play, a bold proposal to the state auditors threatening to shut down the broke branch for good.

"She's like, 'Go big or go home,'" says Amy Poehler, who plays TV's chirpiest and most resilient civil servant. "'I say we put on this giant harvest festival. We try to get all the vendors, all the people in town, we raise the money we need for the parks department budget. If we don't make it, we're all fired.'"

Leslie’s high-stakes dilemma is not unlike the »

'Parks and Recreation' Season 3 pics: Date night?

6 December 2010 10:21 PM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

NBC has posted the first photos for Season 3 of "Parks and Recreation" -- and it would appear that Rob Lowe -- er, Chris Traeger -- is making himself at home in Pawnee.

The shots from the season premiere on Jan. 20 show Chris and Ann (Rashida Jones) -- who, you'll recall, made out a little bit at the end of last season -- on what looks very much like a date. Co-creator Mike Schur has told Zap2it that Ann will be one of the things that keeps Chris in Pawnee this season, so given that and the tablecloths and Ann's sort of shy smile in the photo above, we're going to call it a date.

But if that's the case, what are Leslie (Amy Poehler) and Ben (Adam Scott) doing there, and hwy is Leslie sitting down?

Oh, right. Because she's Leslie. And because she's Leslie, things with Ben might »

Emma Stone Debuts Blond Hair at The Trevor Project With Anna Kendrick, Jessica Alba, and More

6 December 2010 3:30 PM, PST | | See recent Popsugar news »

Emma Stone debuted her new Spider-Man-ready blond locks in La last night at an annual live event benefiting The Trevor Project, which runs a 24/7 crisis line for Lgbtq youth. You seem to prefer Emma as a redhead, but that didn't stop her from smiling on the red carpet along with a Zuhair Murad-wearing Anna Kendrick. Amy Poehler and her husband, Will Arnett, left their adorable boys at home, while Jessica Alba, in Valentino, took the stage along with Justin Long. On the way in, Paul Wesley and Joe Manganiello talked about their own experiences being bullied as did Neil Patrick Harris, who kissed James Marsden in front of the crowd. Josh Duhamel also turned up and put his airplane drama behind him, watching as Darren Criss sang "Teenage Dream" with Katy Perry. View 30 Photos › To see more from the event, just read more.

'Parks and Recreation': Co-creator Mike Schur teases Season 3 romance, scheduling and more

2 December 2010 6:02 PM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

Thursday (Dec. 2) marks exactly seven weeks until "Parks and Recreation" returns to NBC on Jan. 20. And when it does, co-creator Mike Schur says, the show's cast and crew will be throwing what may be the first ever season premiere-slash-wrap party.

Schur and the rest of the "Parks and Rec" team initially had planned on being on the air this fall -- even shooting the first six episodes of Season 3 in the spring so star Amy Poehler could go on maternity leave without interrupting the schedule. Then NBC decided to push the show to midseason, which means that production will have wrapped before the season premiere.

"We're currently writing our finale, which is crazy," Schur told Zap2it shortly before the show went on its Thanksgiving break. "We're going to shoot the finale, and then a month later our premiere will happen."

Schur also talked with us about what we'll see »

See NBC’s 25-Minute Midseason Preview with Glimpses of The Cape, Perfect Couples, Parks & Recreation, The Office and More

2 December 2010 12:16 PM, PST | | See recent news »

Last month we got word on the midseason premieres for NBC’s new series like the superhero action series The Cape, the romantic comedy series Perfect Couples and the legal drama Harry’s Law. Now NBC has released a whopping 25-minute preview at all of their midseason offerings including a glimpse at some of the final episodes featuring Steve Carell on The Office and the anticipated third season of Parks & Recreation starring Amy Poehler. Honestly there’s no reason for me to talk about it because this lengthy preview video speaks for itself. Frankly, I’m just glad that some midseason series are giving people a much needed break from The Event, so maybe people can stop watching it altogether. Check out NBC’s midseason preview after the jump!

DVD Review: ‘Parks and Recreation: Season Two’ Tries to Keep NBC Sitcom Alive

2 December 2010 8:20 AM, PST | | See recent news »

Chicago – Amy Poehler’s “Parks and Recreation” had the serious problem of trying to find an audience on NBC during the destruction of the network by “The Jay Leno Show.” Debuting in April of 2009, it struggled to find a following and then barely hung around through the disastrous times at NBC during the 2009-10 season. To everyone’s surprise, it was renewed and will return on a revamped Thursday night lineup in January. To try and ignite interest in the show one more time, Universal has released the second season of this better-than-average show.

DVD Rating: 3.5/5.0

The second season of “Parks and Recreation” finished 108th in the ratings. If it was on any network other than NBC, it would probably be canceled. And the true tragedy is that it’s a damn funny show. The key to the success of the series is that, like “The Office,” it’s become a true ensemble program. »

Poehler: 'Parks And Rec isn't improvised'

1 December 2010 7:28 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Amy Poehler has suggested that most of the dialogue on her series Parks And Recreation is not improvised. In an interview with Reuters, the actress admitted, however, that she occasionally draws on her sketch comedy experience from Saturday Night Live while filming scenes for the NBC sitcom. "There's a certain amount of spirit of improvisation," she said. "Nine times out of 10, we're like, 'Um, the jokes [in the script] are better than what we're trying to think of.'" The star added: "It's the same as SNL: we always had such great writers, and people always assume the actors improvise. If the show is bad, they blame the writers; if the show is good, they (more) »

Amy Poehler and Her Adorable Archie Hit the Market

23 November 2010 2:00 AM, PST | | See recent Popsugar news »

Amy Poehler took her son Archie along for a trip to the farmers market in Beverly Hills on Sunday. The funny lady is back home on the West Coast to shoot Parks and Recreation after visiting DC earlier this month to honor her friend Tina Fey when she won the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor. It's been a full year of travel and new beginnings for both Amy and her husband Will Arnett. Shortly after welcoming Archie's little brother to the family in August, she headed back to work hosting the season premiere of SNL, while Will stayed busy taping the first season of his TV show Running Wilde. At the moment, his series is on hiatus while hers got a January return as part of NBC's new three-hour comedy block. View 2 Photos › »
