SAG Awards Will Be Presented Entirely by Women, Kristen Bell to Host

First-ever SAG Awards host Kristen Bell in “The Good Place”: NBC/Justin Lubin

The Screen Actors Guild will stand with women at its 24th annual awards ceremony. According to The Hollywood Reporter, women will present each statuette at the January 21 event. This gesture is SAG’s way of supporting women in the wake of the myriad sexual harassment and assault stories that have come out of Hollywood in the past couple months. “The Good Place’s” Kristen Bell will also serve as the SAG Awards’ first-ever host.

“Beginning with the Women’s March in January, it’s been the year of the woman,” SAG Awards Ep Kathy Connell explained. “This is a unifying salute to women who have been very brave and speaking up.”

Of course, men will not be entirely absent from the ceremony. The male SAG winners will take the stage to accept their honors and it

On the season 4 mid-season finale of Empire, titled "Slave to Memory," the Lyons exact revenge on Diana with some help from Warren, Lucious gives Cookie an ultimatum, Jamal's future hangs in the balance after a tragic accident and Shyne worries Andre will reveal their secret.

After his psychotic break, Andre is strapped to a hospital bed, and the doctors are purging the psychotropics from his system. They have no idea if they'll be permanent brain damage, but wouldn't it be Karmic retribution if he did? Especially given what he did to dear, old dad.

'Empire' Recap: The Final Lyon Cub Goes Down
On this episode of Empire, titled "Cupid Painted Blind," Cookie and Lucious worry that Andre will be Diana's next victim, Hakeem gets some fatherly advice from Shyne and Jamal deals with the aftermath of Warren's betrayal.

Actions have consequences, and Jamal is facing some serious legal woes after very publically beating the crap out of Warren. There's a warrant out for his arrest, but Thirsty has convinced the powers that be to let Jamal turn himself in. This gives the Lyon family 10 hours to find a way out of this mess. Thirsty thinks if they can convince Warren to say he threw the first punch, Jamal could be cleared of some, if not all, of the charges he's facing. The main obstacle standing in their way is finding Warren since Diana DuBois has her nephew hidden away and under lock and key.

Oscars Trailer Pokes Fun at Best Picture Mix-Up

Oscars Trailer Pokes Fun at Best Picture Mix-Up
While the rest of the world is still reeling from envelopegate, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences is ready to make light of the 2017 Oscars flub.

A new promo for the 2018 Academy Awards features the chilling moment from last year’s broadcast when Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway mistakenly announced “La La Land” as the best picture winner. Host Jimmy Kimmel jokes, “Warren, what did you do?” after footage rolls of “La La Land” producer Jordan Horowitz revealing “Moonlight” had actually won the top prize.

The trailer also features a montage of 2017’s standout films, including “Wonder Woman,” “Beauty and the Beast,” “Girls Trip,” “It, “Baby Driver,” “Get Out,” “Lady Bird,” and “The Post.”

ABC and the Academy announced on Monday that the 90th annual event will begin at 8 p.m. Et/5 p.m. Pt, a half-hour earlier than prior telecasts. The 90-minute Oscars pre-show, featuring interviews on the red carpet with nominees, presenters, and performers

Mike Gold Shuffles Off to Buffalo

  • Comicmix
“Shuffle Off To Buffalo” is a song that premiered in the 1933 movie 42nd Street, later to become a Broadway musical. Much, much later. The song was written by the legendary team of Al Dubin and Harry Warren, and the movie in which it was preformed was, very arguably, the most erotic movie Warner Bros. made while the Warner Bros. were still running the joint.

It is in that spirit that I announce that this is my last column for ComicMix. I’ve been here almost 12 years, and I have done nothing else (professionally) for such a long stretch. They say people with short attention spans are the most creative.

No, wait. “They” don’t say that. I do.

There are lots of reasons for my departure, the most significant of which is, quite frankly, I’ve been looking to leave for several years. Again, my short attention span: my professional

“Orange Is the New Black’s” Uzo Aduba to Topline “Miss Virginia”

Aduba on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show

Crazy Eyes” has signed on to star in an indie drama. “Orange Is the New Black” actress Uzo Aduba will topline “Miss Virgina,” Variety reports. Penned by Erin O’Connor, the script is based on a true story and “follows a struggling inner-city single mother who moves her at-risk son from their dangerous neighborhood school to an expensive one in a safe area,” the source writes.

“The real Miss Virginia is as formidable as she is warm and down-to-earth,” said O’Connor, who is also among the film’s producers. “No one captures that spirit like Uzo. Her bravery, grit, and humor shine through in all her performances. We’re ecstatic that she will be bringing her infectious energy to ‘Miss Virginia.’”

R.J. Daniel Hanna (“Shelter”) is directing the feature, which is expected to kick off production early next year in Los Angeles.

Aduba has won two Emmys for portraying Suzanne “Crazy EyesWarren in “Orange Is the New Black,” which is set to return for a sixth season. A premiere date for the next installment of the Netflix hit has yet to be announced. Her big screen credits include Philip Roth adaptation “American Pastoral” and Sian Heder’s Ellen Page-starrer “Tallulah,” a drama about a woman who kidnaps a toddler.

While she’s said she’s always happy to answer questions regarding “Oitnb’s” inclusive portrayals of race and beauty, Aduba believes the fight is far from over. “We’re further away than we want to be, or that we believe ourselves to be,” she said of the entertainment industry, and seemingly the world at large. “I think gestures of progress can sometimes confuse us into thinking that we’ve passed points that we actually haven’t passed. And then we find ourselves confronted with obstacles and social injustices that remind us how far away we are from the finishing line.” She added, “It also takes the bravery of all parties. I would like to see that question posed to the people who have the agency to change it.”

Orange Is the New Black’s” Uzo Aduba to Topline “Miss Virginia” was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

‘Star Trek: Discovery’ Review: ‘Magic to Make the Sanest Man Go Mad’ Delivers the First Truly Great Episode of the Series
From the very beginning of “Magic to Make the Sanest Man Go Mad,” we knew something different was in store for this episode. Up until now “Discovery” has favored extended cold opens, delaying the opening credits for several minutes. But instead, following the always moving opening theme by Jeff Russo, “Discovery” took on a narrative device well-explored by other sci-fi franchises — including another “Star Trek” series — and managed to both utilize the fun, appealing elements of the trope while finding its own spin on the action.

From Steve Bannon to Hillary Clinton, Everything to Know About Harvey Weinstein’s Influential Political Ties
Before Harvey Weinstein‘s career was upended by allegations of sexual assault from a number of women, the film mogul’s influence extended beyond Hollywood — and into politics.

The movie mogul — who is now spending time in an Arizona luxury resort after numerous accusations from high-profile women including Gwyneth Paltrow, Angelina Jolie and Kate Beckinsale — donated nearly $1 million in his own name to Democratic politicians over the past 17 years, according to Business Insider.

Notable among the group are former President Barack Obama, 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, and Sens. Elizabeth Warren, Chuck Schumer, Al Franken, Cory Booker, and Kirsten Gillibrand

Why did the chicken cross the road? Because she was looking for a hero.

Luckily, Lucky found one.

Last year, the chicken was crammed into a truck with hundreds of others and sent to the slaughterhouse, reports People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals. Somewhere in Washington, though, some fortunate happenstance shook Lucky from her cage on the vehicle and dumped her onto the road.

Warren Padgette, a trucker driving behind Lucky’s truck, saw the weak bird plop on to the pavement. Figuring the chicken was dead, but hoping she wasn’t, Padgette stopped his rig and went to check on her.

X-Men's greatest human characters

James Hunt Oct 8, 2017

As The Gifted digs into characters from the fringes of the X-Men world, we salute some of the franchise's finest humans...

The X-Men, as a franchise, is all about mutants trying to peacefully coexist with (and protect) the humans that hate and fear them. This means that there are a lot of human characters in the franchise – some of whom hate and fear the X-Men, and some of whom are the haters and fearers.

Fox’s new X-Men show, The Gifted, has already shown that it’s willing to use characters from the fringes of the X-Men franchise, and furthermore, unlike the X-Men movies, humans and mutants working together is built into its premise. The Strucker family isn’t 100% mutant, after all. (Well, so far as we know.) That got us wondering: aside from the ones who have appreated in the movies, which human characters from the

‘Captain Kronos: Vampire Hunter #1′ Review

Written by Dan Abnett | Art by Tom Mandrake | Published by Titan Comics

Captain Kronos – like the film – chronicles the adventures of the mysterious and powerful Kronos who has dedicated his life to destroying the evil vampire plague. Once a victim himself, the debonair Hunter knows the vampire’s strengths and weaknesses as well as the dangers of confronting the potent forces of darkness.

Based on the 1974 film, Captain Kronos: Vampire Hunter is the second Hammer title from Titan Comics following the success of the awesome The Mummy: Palimpsest (from Peter Milligan and Ronilson Freire). However unlike other Hammer franchises, Captain Kronos was very much about the heroics of its titular character – and this new book very much follows suit, making it different in many ways from what audiences might expect from a Hammer comic.

The art in this book reminded me very much of the classic, and controversial, British

Venice Film Review: ‘The Shape of Water’

Venice Film Review: ‘The Shape of Water’
For those few cinema scholars who speak of some motion pictures as “films,” and others as “movies,” Guillermo del Toro’s glorious “The Shape of Water” refuses to go tidily into either box. A ravishing, eccentric auteur’s imagining, spilling artistry, empathy and sensuality from every open pore, it also offers more straight-up movie for your money than just about any Hollywood studio offering this year. This decidedly adult fairytale, about a forlorn, mute cleaning lady and the uncanny merman who save each other’s lives in very different ways, careers wildly from mad-scientist B-movie to heart-thumping Cold War noir to ecstatic, wings-on-heels musical, keeping an unexpectedly classical love story afloat with every dizzy genre turn. Lit from within by a heart-clutching silent star turn from Sally Hawkins, lent dialogue by one of Alexandre Desplat’s most abundantly swirling scores, this is incontestably del Toro’s most rewarding, richly realized film — or movie, for
