U.K. Judge Rules Madonna's Custody Battle Over Son Rocco Should Be Settled in New York Courts

21 March 2016 4:00 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Madonna and Guy Ritchie faced off in court once again Monday, where a London judge decided that the ongoing custody dispute over 15-year-old son Rocco should be decided in New York courts. The judge ruled that Madonna can drop her legal proceedings in London so that the legal battle can continue in the U.S. judicial system. While the A-list exes have been working toward a custody agreement in a New York court, Madonna previously launched proceedings in the U.K. under the Hague Convention on International Child Abduction; however, she decided to stop the litigation to concentrate solely on the U. »

'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' Triumphs at the Jameson Empire Awards

20 March 2016 2:20 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

If J.J. Abrams and Matt Damon felt a little blue on Oscar night when they went away empty-handed, they got a belated consolation prize at the Jameson Empire Awards presented by Jameson Whiskey and Empire Magazine in London Sunday night. "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" took home the most awards, five, including Best Director. Director Paul Greengrass, who has recently reunited with Damon on the upcoming "Jason Bourne" sequel, gave Damon the Jameson Best Actor award for "The Martian," while Best Actress went to Oscar-winning supporting actress Alicia Vikander for "The Danish Girl."  Hosted by David Walliams, these awards reflect a UK-friendly and populist sensibility. See the full list of winners below.  "The Force Awakens" took Best Visual Effects, Best Sci-Fi/Fantasy (collected by Anthony Daniels as C-3Po), and Best Male and Female Newcomer awards to John Boyega »

A few words about three wonderful writers, and why oversharing shouldn't be sneered at...

Hello and a warm welcome to our Geeks Vs Loneliness spot, a regular bit on the site where we natter about things that may be affecting you, and/or the people around you. As always, we feel honour-bound to declare that we don’t have a magic elixir. Instead, we just want to get conversations started, and hopefully come up with a tip or two that may point you or someone you know in a helpful direction.

A while back, we talked about the book Wonder on the site. The specific article is here, but ever since I’ve written about that, there’s been a trickle of people who’ve let us know they’ve read it, and got as much out of it as I did. That’s lovely to hear, »

Mad Max Furiously Rules The Empire Award Nominations

18 February 2016 2:09 PM, PST | FamousMonsters of Filmland | See recent Famous Monsters of Filmland news »

Mad Max: Fury Road has landed the most 2016 Empire Award nominations — ten (the same it got from the Oscars!) — of 2016 with Star Wars: The Force Awakens nipping at its heels with nine. The British magazine Empire presents the awards, which are voted on by readers and cinema fans around the world — both the nominations and the awards themselves. (And, technically speaking, they’re the Jameson Empire Awards, since Jameson Irish whiskey began sponsoring them in their 14th year. Cheers to that!)

With The Force Awakens being part of the beloved Star Wars mythology and breaking box-office records left and right at record speed, it’s a bit surprising Mad Max outpaced it. It goes to show that both fans adore this instant classic as much as the critics do, getting nods for:

• Best Film

• Best Director (George Miller)

• Best Actor (Tom Hardy)

• Best Actress (Charlize Theron, who should teach a »

Emily S. Whitten: Seven Movies for Surviving Snowzilla

26 January 2016 10:00 AM, PST | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

This past weekend we here in Washington DC got a lot of snow. Um… “A whole lot of snow”? …Okay, how about, “a metric ton of snow”? Ooh… “The fourth heaviest snowstorm dating to 1884.” There. I think that sums it up nicely.

Given this, I (not even kidding) have not left my home in five days (but I’m still sane! No really, I promise! The purple bunnies in my pantry told me so.) And of course, being a very practical person, since I knew the storm was coming I ensured I was well-stocked with all the necessary items beforehand. But then, around the end of Day 1, as the snowdrifts began inching into the two-foot range on my windowsills, I began to wonder what I would do to entertain myself if the power went out (taking with it, one might assume, the Internet).

“Ah-ha!” I said to myself. “I have »

Well, I’m sorry. I’ve failed you. For whatever reason (festive spirit, drunkenness, having eaten to the point of hallucination), I couldn’t find very much to moan about last week. Everything I watched was pretty great. Even the things I thought were going to be annoying, like Gareth Malone’s Great Choir Reunion, turned out to be good.

Friday’s best TV: Billionaire Boy; Jamie and Jimmy’s Friday Night Feast; Sherlock; The Big Quiz – Coronation Street v Emmerdale

31 December 2015 10:10 PM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

An adaptation of David Walliam’s Roald Dahl-esque novel; Oliver and Doherty serve up smashing grub; and 2015’s detective characters throwback to 1895 to play the original people they ripped off. Plus: Team Rovers Return and Team Woolpack go head to head

The BBC once again adapts a David Walliams novel for the festive season. Walliams owes a great deal to Roald Dahl, and this is another tale of a forlorn child in a world of cruel and stupid adults. Elliot Sprakes stars as Joe, whose factory worker dad Len (John Thomson) becomes a billionaire after inventing a new type of toilet roll. But as his dad embraces the bling and a glamorous girlfriend (Catherine Tate), Joe yearns for a normal life and friends. Reliable family fun, with Walliams himself co-starring as a dinner lady.
