Jennifer Lawrence's adventures in NYC continue. On Sunday, the actress kept it casual while stepping out in the Big Apple. Her downtime comes just one week after she got Bradley Cooper laughing super hard at an event for their movie Serena. Elsewhere, Kerry Washington and Gina Rodriguez paired up for a sweet moment, Josh Duhamel channeled his inner tough guy on set, and Kim Kardashian showed off her physique while stretching it out. Keep reading to see all that and more. »
The questions isn’t whether Dwayne Johnson will be a good host (since he excelled during his first two times in Studio 8H), but whether or not “Saturday Night Live” can finally start regaining some of the momentum that propelled it through its Fall run. That was possibly the strongest stretch during my five years covering the show here at HitFix, but 2015 has been marked by less-than-stellar episodes and a less-than-ideal production schedule. As such, “SNL” has been spotty both in terms of quality and production. But maybe tonight will be a turning point as the show heads into this season’s home stretch. As always, I’ll be liveblogging each segment in real time. I’ll give that segment a grade. I highly encourage you to not stress too much about the grades. The Rock Obama will get angry if you stress about the grades. See you at 11: »

March Madness remains hot for CBS and Turner Sports, with Thursday’s third-round action of the men’s college basketball tournament soaring to its highest overnight rating in 25 years and likely contributing to declines for dramas “Scandal” and “The Blacklist.”
According to Nielsen metered-market overnights, last night’s coverage generated the highest rating for the Sweet 16 Thursday (9.1 household rating/16 share) since 1991 (when the tournament began its current television format). It was up a big 30% compared to last year (7.0/14).
TBS and CBS averaged a 9.3/17 overnight rating/share from 7-10 p.m. Et, a 39% increase from last year and the best for this window since 1991. And from 9:45 p.m.-12:45 a.m. Et, the networks averaged an 8.9/16, up 20% from last year and tied with 1992 and 1993 as the highest-rated window since 1991.
Interest in watching undefeated Kentucky is likely the main driver in this year’s ratings, and the numbers remained high »

(Spoiler alert: Please do not read on if you haven’t watched Thursday’s episode of “Scandal.”) Thursday night’s episode of “Scandal” exploded on social media when fans lost it over ABC telling them to “Put a Ring On It.” The latest installment focused on Cyrus Beene (Jeff Perry) in flashbacks to his two previous marriages and his upcoming one to prostitute Michael, which Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington) was pushing him to have at the White House to make a big splash. “There is no bigger stage, there is no bigger moment,” she said. The secret-spilling episode fired up Twitter users, »

To walk in Olivia Pope's shoes... Would we instantly inherit some form of badassery? Could we inspire and lead a group of our own gladiators? To channel her empowering alter-ego, Kerry Washington surprisingly reaches deep down to the soles. "The biggest thing for me are the shoes," the Scandal star said to Dkny PR girl Aliza Licht in the latest The Edit cover story. "I'll wear Uggs around set, but I can't rehearse a scene in them because I don't feel like Olivia until I put the shoes on. Shoes define how you walk in the world and how you stand, like: what is your posture in life?" Kerry admitted that she and Scandal costume designer Lyn Paolo were inspired to elevate »
Kerry Washington was once wary of using Twitter, but those days are long done! The Scandal star looks stunning on the cover of Net-a-Porter.com's The Edit, and in the accompanying feature, she admits that nothing—not even childbirth—will stop her from live-tweeting the ABC series. "Every Thursday within three weeks of my [daughter Isabelle's] due date, I loaded up pre-tweets based on the episodes and what I would want to say. I tweeted in the very early stages of my labor. I figured that if I went completely silent on social media, then people would know I was in the hospital!" she says. That sounds like the kind of covert operation that Olivia Pope might oversee!

Actress Katie Lowes is best known for playing Quinn Perkins on ABC’s hit “Scandal.” But when she’s not playing a gladiator opposite Kerry Washington, Lowes is the co-artistic director of the Iama Theatre Company in Los Angeles. Starting March 28, she will star in an upcoming production of “A Dog’s House,” a play written by Micah Schraft and directed by Trip Cullman that runs at Iama through April 26. Tickets are available online.
You’re going to be in “A Dog’s House.” Describe the play. What’s it like?
The play starts out really light and fun, and then of course just rips your heart out, which is what you want from any lovely theater experience. When you leave, you have to actually think about what you witnessed, and it’s not like you can just move on. It’s not an ignore-able piece. I think it’s »

It's hard to find anything worth getting out of bed for at four in the morning. Sure, maybe if our house was burning down, then, just maybe, that'd be enough to wake us from our deep slumber, get out of our warm, inviting beds and into the cold, harsh dawn light. But seriously only maybe. If you're a Gladiator, however, getting out of bed after receiving a mysterious phone call in the middle of the night is just part of the job description.

Beauty, brains, and talent - Kerry Washington really has it all and then some. On Saturday, the actress had a winning night at the GLAAD Media Awards in La. After Kerry stunned on the red carpet with Shonda Rhimes - the woman who created Scandal and pretty much succeeds with everything she does - the ladies took their seats in the audience next to cute couple Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi. Ellen later had the honor of presenting Kerry with the vanguard award, which GLAAD gives to "media professionals who have made a significant difference in promoting Lgbt equality and acceptance." Kerry could have given your typical acceptance speech, but as she explained, she opted for an inspiring message "because, on Monday morning, people are going to click a link to hear what that woman from Scandal said at that award show." In the moments that followed, Kerry received »
Taraji P. Henson will not be enrolling her 20-year-old son, Marcel, at the University of Southern California after she says he was racially profiled by the cops.
"My child has been racially profiled. He was in Glendale, Calif., and did exactly everything the cops told him to do, including letting them illegally search his car," the Empire actress told Uptown magazine. "It was bogus because they didn't give him the ticket for what he was pulled over for."

After Marcel's second run-in with law enforcement at the Glendale, Calif. campus, Taraji decided to send him to another school altogether. "Then he's at University of Southern California, the school that I was going to transfer him to, when police stopped him for having his hands in his pockets," she said. "So guess where he's going? Howard University. I'm not paying $50K so I can't sleep at »
"I love 'How To Get Away With Murder.' I love 'Grey's Anatomy.' I got to hold it down for my 'Thank God It's Thursday.' Those are shows I love," she told Access Hollywood of her fellow Shondaland series. "I also really love 'Game of Thrones.' There's a lot of fun sexuality on that show of all kinds... I think those are my biggies."

Kerry Washington accepts the Vanguard Award at the 2015 GLAAD Media Awards Saturday, giving a "rousing" speach about human rights, diversity in Hollywood, and gender equality. Watch her acceptance speech as she says, "We need more employment of Lgbt people in front of and behind the camera." Other winners at the ceremony included "The Imitation Game," "How to Get Away with Murder," "Transparent," "The Normal Heart," and "Days of Our Lives." The Wrap -Break- Action sequel "Insurgent" tops the weekend box office with $54 million, following short of the original film "Divergent." Lionsgate had hoped to build on the newfound stardom of Shailene Woodley with a bigger take. The other wide release, "The Gunman" starring Sean Penn, fires blanks with just $5 million.

Kerry Washington drew cheers, including at least two standing ovations, when she gave a powerful, moving acceptance speech after being honored as an ally to the Lgbt community at the 2015 GLAAD Media Awards on Saturday. The 38-year-old actress, best known for her role as Olivia Pope in Scandal, was presented with the Vanguard Award by Ellen DeGeneres, who arrived at the event with her wife and show guest star Portia de Rossi. "Thank you Ellen, thank you Ellen, thank you Ellen, thank you Ellen so much," Washington said before launching into her acceptance speech. "We just love having you and your beautiful, extraordinary wife in our Scandal family. It's a good night for Shondaland up in »
Kerry Washington, to whom Ellen DeGeneres presented the Vanguard Award for her work as an Lgbt advocate, closed out the 26th Annual GLAAD Media Awards at the Beverly Hilton on Saturday with an earnest and empowering message.
“I’m going to say some stuff,” she began. “Not just for us, but because on Monday morning, people are going to click a link to hear what that woman from ‘Scandal’ said at that awards show.”
Washington said that the characters she plays often become political statements. Some natural qualities, like race and gender, are out of her control, but other times she has chosen to take on roles that portray underrepresented communities, like her work as a transgender woman in the film “Life Is Hot in Cracktown.” But the great irony, according to Washington, is that she does not choose roles in order to make a political statement, and the fact »
