The Stack: Holiday Gift Guide 2014, Scream Factory Part 4

just now | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

Welcome back to The Stack. We are finishing up our look at Scream Factory 2014 releases in yet another episode of what has been a mammoth gift giving guide. Lake Placid (1999) is one of those films that reminds me of Lewis Teague's 1980 film Alligator which was written by none other than John Sayles. I like Teagues film better and would sure like to see Scream Factory release an Se of it. But Lake Placid is awfully fun and has an amazing cast featuring Betty White, Oliver Platt, Bill Pullman, and Bridget Fonda. The alligator effects have stood the test of time pretty well too. This slipcased blu-ray has a ton of special features. Finally hitting blu-ray is Ginger Snaps (2000) a movie that really...

Betty White and Craig Ferguson Dance With a Hippo for Christmas

18 December 2014 12:02 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

There's nothing like getting into the holiday spirit with the help of Betty White and a purple hippo. The former Golden Girl visited The Late Late Show With Craig Ferguson, where she was surprised by a choir, her favorite Christmas song, and giant dancing animals. The longer the clip goes, the more surreal it all becomes. But White's face is that of pure, unadulterated joy, and that's what's most important. (N.B.: Ferguson's run as host ends this week. Jay Leno will be his final guest, on Friday.) »

15 Silly Things That Have Won Golden Globes

11 December 2014 3:50 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

No one would accuse the Hollywood Foreign Press Association of being a refined institution, but when you think about the kinds of movies, TV shows, actors, and actresses who've ended up with Golden Globes, it's actually staggering how the HFPA has gotten away with maintaining its image as a must-see event. Drunk people at the dais is, I guess, still a sufficient enough reason to tune in. Let's celebrate today's nominations with a fond look back at some silly things that have won Golden Globes. 1. "Green Card" (Best Motion Picture -- Comedy) What a classic. Nothing says "comedic wonderful good times" like Gerard Depardieu and Andie MacDowell mixing it up in an immigration romcom. Fun fact: My aunt saw this movie in Germany, noticed the reaction of the crowd, and was embarrassed on America's behalf. 2. Twiggy (Best Newcomer of the Year, Actress) I love Twiggy! She was great as a »

Best and Worst of the 2015 SAG Awards nominations

10 December 2014 11:42 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

You're always going to snub someone during awards season. It's inevitable.  Happily, however, the 2015 SAG Awards nominations didn't include as many of the head scratching nominations as we've seen in previous years.  Sure, Naomi Watts' nomination for "St. Vincent" is quizzical, at best, but we've moved on from Helen Mirren getting a lead actress nod for "Hitchcock" or Betty White's illustrious "Hot in Cleveland" run (and we love us some Betty White). This year there were some well deserved nominees who might have been overlooked in the past ("The Grand Budapest Hotel," Tatiana Maslany), some who are finishing up well-deserved runs ("True Detective's" Matthew McConaughey) and others whose awards run of glory is just beginning (Julianne Moore).  There are also questions on whether the SAGs voting system is unfairly skewed towards films and TV shows that send screeners (not always possible) and the continuing issue of ethnic diversity among the nominees. »

Viacom CEO Says ‘TV Everywhere’ Must Be More Than a Buzzword

8 December 2014 11:06 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Viacom CEO Philippe Dauman wants the media company’s networks to invest in more original programming geared towards younger viewers.

The media chief told an investor-heavy crowd at Monday’s Ubs Global Media & Communications Conference that Viacom has been overhauling its schedule on cable networks such as TV Land, Spike TV and MTV, while also investing in digital programming geared at viewers who prefer to watch shows on mobile devices.

“We have a lot of real estate that we can build beautiful new homes on,” said Dauman.

Some of that new construction will include programs such as “Younger” on TV Land with Hilary Duff and “The Gaffigan Show” with stand-up comic Jim Gaffigan. It’s a departure from the network’s previous shows such as “Hot in Cleveland,” which starred Betty White,” and is evidence that the channel is trying to appeal to a different and more youth-centric demographic.

Hot in Cleveland: Season Six Ratings

1 December 2014 6:37 PM, PST | | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

The ratings for this staple of TV Land have been falling for years. They're a far cry from the first season's 3.12 million average. Will they start to recover this year? Could this be the final season for Hot in Cleveland? Cancelled or renewed for season seven? Stay tuned.

Hot in Cleveland continues to follow the lives of three middle-age ladies from Los Angeles -- writer Melanie Moretti (Valerie Bertinelli), beautician Joy Scoggs (Jane Leeves), and actress Victoria Chase (Wendie Malick). When their flight to Paris makes an emergency landing in Cleveland, Ohio, they discover a community that's less shallow and youth-obsessed. They move there and lease a home with a sassy caretaker, Elka Ostrovsky (Betty White).

The ratings are typically the best indication of a show's chances of staying on the air. The higher the ratings, the better the chances for survival. This chart »

Throwback Thursday: In 1985, 'Golden Girls' Heated Up the Small Screen

27 November 2014 2:00 PM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

This story first appeared in a special Awards Watch issue of The Hollywood Reporter magazine. September 1985 saw the birth of some of America's most treasured pop-cultural heroes (Super Mario Bros., MacGyver), but arguably no one was more beloved than the four irrepressible stars of The Golden Girls. The sitcom, created by Susan Harris and starring Bea Arthur, then 63, Rue McClanahan, then 51, Betty White, then 63, and Estelle Getty, then 62, followed the antics of four older women living together in Miami.

The Voice Top 10 Performance Recap: Truth Detectives

24 November 2014 7:30 PM, PST | | See recent news »

You can’t believe everything you hear on TV — not even (or perhaps especially) when it’s packaged in flannel-shirt wrapping paper, a folksy Oklahoma-accent and a corporate edict to keep the 18-49 demo rating above 3 million.

Which is why I didn’t let myself get angry or dismayed by Blake Shelton’s ridiculous exaggeration during The Voice‘s Top 10 performance episode on Monday: “This is the best live show I have ever seen in seven seasons.”

Dude, seriously?

I don’t believe for a second that the country coach believes such ridiculousness — not after an evening marked by incredibly insipid song selection, »

"Hot in Cleveland", Fresh On Nick At Nite

19 November 2014 3:41 PM, PST | | See recent JustPressPlay news »

Hot in Cleveland is a show about older women, for older women. Both of these things are such a rarity in Hollywood that its no wonder the TV Land sitcom has made it through five seasons and getting renewed for a sixth--there is not much else out there aimed at that demographic, and something needs to fill the void. The show chronicles the misadventures of three longtime residents of Hollywood after they relocate to Cleveland and move in with a cantankerous elderly caretaker named Elka, played in a scene-stealing turn by the legendary Betty WhiteHot in Cleveland does not attempt to reinvent the wheel when it comes to the art of the sitcom. Rather, it thrives on its old fashionedness, and packs each episode with kooky double entendres, menopause jokes, and a (loud) live studio audience.

The 7 Most Important Images from the 'Cinderella' Trailer

19 November 2014 11:32 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Are you aware of this thing called "Cinderella"? Here's what it is: a movie, basically, but a thing where Cate Blanchett, Helena Bonham Carter, and -- for some reason -- other actors are invited to dress up in costumes and be great together. I don't know why people named "Lily James" and "Richard Madden" get to be in this, but apparently they play Cinderella and the prince. Cate (pronounced Cate) plays the Wicked Stepmother (!) and Helena Bonham Carter plays the Fairy Godmother (!!). I wonder if they were supposed to play opposite roles originally but made a Betty White-Rue McClanahan-type switch in pre-production. Anyway, the trailer is decadent. Watch. There are seven important images in this. Here they are.   Here is Cate. Wicked as hell. Check out that damn bone structure, mortals. I wouldn't be surprised if Cate's parents were Glenn Close and a swan. Um, we're only »

If You Thought This Was a Tyler Perry Movie, You Might Be Racist…

18 November 2014 1:30 PM, PST | | See recent news »

-Phoebe Robinson

I kid, I kid, but I’m also kind of serious. When someone mentions Tyler Perry, it’s only fair to think of him dressing up in old lady drag, bible thumping, and moralizing about how women shouldn’t open their legs for any good looking dude like they are a 24-hour Golden Corral. (Seriously, did you see Temptation: Confessions of a Marriage Counselor? Way to send a message to women that if they are not faithful, they’re going to get AIDS and everyone will hate them. Ugh!)

But here’s the thing: Ty Ty isn’t the owner of these kinds of movie tropes, so it’s about time we stop acting like it and recognize other movies that rely on these storytelling motifs. For example:
