Amy Schumer had a lot of people to thank during her 2015 Emmy's acceptance speech—the head writer of her show (Jessi Klein), producer Dan Powell and, you know, the "girl who gave me this sort-of smoky eye." That girl—celeb makeup artist Andréa Tiller—is responsible for more than just Ms. Schumer's now famous smoky eye. Her clients also include Olivia Palermo, Allison Williams, Olivia Culpo, and (as Amy pointed out) she really is the master of the award show makeup. And while Andréa's obviously accustomed to rubbing elbows with some of the biggest actresses in the biz, she was still pretty freakin' stoked to hear Amy's big shout-out. "On »
Inside Amy Schumer returned for a third season last night, and in addition to its smart send-up of Friday Night Lights and rape culture, there is a sketch in which Schumer randomly stumbles upon a picnic attended by the holy trinity of Tina Fey, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, and Patricia Arquette (as one does). As it turns out, once she joins them, she finds out that they're there to celebrate Julia's "Last Fuckable Day" — or, as they each brilliantly explain to Schumer, that dreaded day when every older actress is told her "vagina is going to turn into a hermit crab." In true bad-bitch behavior, they send Julia's fuckability (and all of Hollywood's antiquated sexism) off with a Viking funeral. At the Tribeca Film Festival, the show's co-creator Dan Powell said this sketch was three years in the making, and boy, was it worth the wait. »

Season three of Inside Amy Schumer airs tomorrow, and, at Sunday night’s Tribeca panel, Schumer and her creative team gave a taste of what’s to come for her Comedy Central show. From Amber Rose rapping about farts that break glasses to a shot-for-shot re-creation of a 12 Angry Men parody where Schumer is on trial for whether or not she’s pretty enough for TV, this season is brimming with beefy guest stars and even beefier content. “We went nuts this season and broke any rules that were set up,” Schumer said.“Last Fuckable Day” with Tina Fey, Patricia Arquette and Julia Louis-Dreyfus The team had been trying to make this sketch for three years, but a lot of actresses said no. “We were thinking of a Diane Keaton or a Mia Farrow,” said co-creator and executive producer Dan Powell. “Can’t imagine why those two wouldn’t want to work together, »

David Miscavige and his Church of Scientology are on a mission -- to "dig up dirt" on people who talk crap on them -- so claims the private investigator who says he was hired to keep David's dad in line.

Tom Cruise underwrites so much of Scientology, people connected with the Church root for the success of his movies, even when they suck. P.I. Daniel Powell, who claims to have been hired by the Church to tail the father of Scientology leader David Miscavige, joked with cops ... Tom was the biggest moneymaker by far in the Church. In fact, Powell wisecracks that Tom is probably paying the $10k a week salary to keep tabs on and harass Ronald Miscavige. »

Wes Anderson's "The Grand Budapest Hotel" won the Original Screenplay honor at the recently concluded Writers Guild Awards while Morten Tyldum's "The Imitation Game" took home the Adapted Screenplay trophy. "The Internet's Own Boy: The Story of Aaron Swarts" written by Brian Knappenberger won Documentary Screenplay award. The film is not nominated for an Academy award.
Here's the complete list of winners (highlighted) and nominees of the 2015 Writers Guild Awards:
Wes Anderson’s whimsical script for “The Grand Budapest Hotel” took the Writers Guild of America award for original screenplay, while Graham Moore’s script for codebreaking thriller “The Imitation Game” won for adapted screenplay.
“Alan Turing is the person for who we made this film,” Moore said in his acceptance speech at the Century Plaza in Los Angeles. “It is on the shoulders of his genius that we made this film.”
Anderson, who shares story credit with Hugo Guiness, recalled in his acceptance speech that it was appropriate to receive the award in Century City since he had worked with longtime collaborator Owen Wilson at a nearby motel many years ago.
“I can think of no greater neighborhood to accept this award in,” Anderson added.
