Made on a budget of $400,000, the film went on to earn $44 million at the box office and has grown into a comedy classic, thanks to its quirky characters, ridiculously quotable conversations and a finicky llama named Tina. School elections and tater tots will never be the same thanks to Napoleon and the rest of the crew. To celebrate the movie's anniversary, the cast reunited at »

Modern Family's Teenage Boys Film a Scene With Topless Women on the Beach—See the Pic

21 February 2014 10:07 AM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Modern Family took to Bondi Beach to do some filming and some very unique extras joined the teenage boys. Rico Rodriguez and Nolan Gould walked by two topless ladies as they completed some of the cast's last scenes for the hit sitcom in Australia. The women, who skipped the bikini tops and wore pasties instead, flaunted their beach bodies and smiled at the actors. Gould also took a dip in the ocean and naturally one of the ladies joined him nearby. We will have to wait and see how this scene plays out on the popular series but if we're just judging by the photographs, it promises to be a comedic treat.

21 February 2014 7:17 AM, PST | | See recent Popsugar news »

The Modern Family cast is hard at work filming on location in Sydney, and they hit iconic Bondi Beach for a hilarious scene on Friday. Sofia Vergara led the pack in a multicolored, one-piece swimsuit, splashing around (and screaming) with her costar Ty Burrell as he got "attacked" by a huge blue jellyfish. The hijinks didn't stop there, though - Nolan Gould and Rico Rodriguez's characters get a surprise when they find that the beach is filled with topless sunbathers casually passing them by. For the rest of the cast - including Sarah Hyland, Ariel Winter, Julie Bowen, Ed O'Neill, and youngest cast member, Aubrey Anderson-Emmons - it was all fun in the sun. This award-winning cast knows how work and play hard. In addition to seeing the stars working on the beach, a few of their significant others were spotted, too.

18 January 2014 8:27 PM, PST | | See recent news »

The odds of Cate Blanchett winning her second Oscar look even stronger after she collected the Screen Actors Guild award on Sunday for best lead actress in Blue Jasmine.

Similarly Matthew McConaughey.s hopes of taking the best lead actor prize have improved after SAG recognised his performance in Dallas Buyers Club.

The SAG awards for Jared Leto as best supporting actor for Dallas Buyers Club and for Lupita Nyong.o as supporting actress in 12 Years A Slave won.t have dimmed either.s chance of winning gold.

Meanwhile the outstanding cast award for American Hustle is viewed by some pundits as a harbinger of that film.s prospects of taking the best picture gong, as happened last year with Argo.

.At this point it just doesn.t appear Blanchett can be beaten . and she still has BAFTA to go before the Academy opens its envelopes on March 2,. opined Deadline com.s Peter Hammond. »
