Amy Schumer 'Sickened by the Cowardice' of the Senate on Gun Control Votes

22 June 2016 3:00 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Amy Schumer is putting the U.S. Senate on blast after it failed to pass a series of gun control measures this week. "I am sickened by the cowardice of these people who are supposed to lead us," Schumer told Politico. "Their dedication seems to be only to dollar signs for their own pockets. In November, we will remember who stood with the gun lobby, rather than their constituents, as we mourned for Orlando." The Senate rejected four new gun control proposals on Monday, juts one week after the mass shooting in Orlando that claimed 49 lives. Schumer became an ardent »

How Lisa Marie Presley Tried - and Failed - to Reunite Scientology Leader David Miscavige's Father with His Family After He Left the Church

3 May 2016 9:20 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

A feel-good father-son tale it is not. Instead, Ruthless: Scientology, My Son David Miscavige, and Me, the tell-all memoir from Ron Miscavige detailing his estranged son David's early life and take-no-prisoners ascension to the helm of the Church of Scientology, is a scathing, if sad, look at the dissolution of a family. "He runs Scientology with an iron fist," writes the elder Miscavige, a musician and businessman who introduced David to the religion in the late '60s, in Ruthless, published today by St. Martin's Press. (Ron left the church in 2012 after over four decades.) "I believe his obsession with »

Scientology Attorney Says Church Hired Private Investigators to Trail David Miscavige's Father After He Left the Church for 'His Own Safety'

As the father of Scientology leader David Miscavige prepares for the release of his tell-all memoir, Ron Miscavige has opened up about being trailed by private investigators after he left the controversial church in 2012, and feeling like he was "shot in the head" when he learned that his own son seemingly did not care about his well-being. In July 2013, authorities in West Allis, Wisconsin, questioned Dwayne Powell and his son Daniel after following up on a call about a man acting suspiciously in the neighborhood where Ron Miscavige was living with his wife. Dwayne Powell told police he was a »

Nominations For The 68th Annual Writers Guild Of America Awards

6 January 2016 10:43 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The Writers Guild of America has just announced the nominations for their annual awards for Best Screenplays (by writers who are guild signatories). That’s right, before you get nervous thinking that your favorite may have been left off the list, you must remember that the WGA is the group that is not all-inclusive and leaves out several of the top contenders each year due to them not being part of the guild or not following their very specific rules. For this reason, you won’t see Inside Out, The Hateful Eight, and Ex Machina in the Original Screenplay category or Room, Brooklyn, or Anomalisa in the Adapted screenplay category.

Taking a look at what’s left over for the nominations, we find many that were expected to make a showing, including Spotlight and Bridge of Spies for Original Screenplay, though they apparently had to sink to really low depths »
