Lady Gaga has won the Outstanding Music Artist award at the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) Awards. The singer, who caused a stir with a lesbian kiss in her controversial "Telephone" video, was honored at the 21st Awards show on Saturday night, May 5 both for her music and for promoting equality and increasing the visibility of the Lgbt community.

The producers of "Big Brother" have found a new kind of TV judge, one who claims a skill not even Judge Judy can match: He can talk to the dead.
He's psychic medium Robert Hanson, and he's at the center of a new Tlc special premiering Saturday dubbed "Paranormal Court." The show's awesome motto: There may not be a will, but there's still a way.
The special revolves around folks seeking resolution to unresolved conflicts involving folks who've passed on. There's the mom and daughter at war over their loved one's gold cross, the siblings fighting over their »
I can't say for certain whether Danish helmer Henrik Ruben Genz is a fan of David Lynch, but judging by Genz's neat little thriller "Terribly Happy," I'd say he's seen "Blue Velvet" more than once. "Terribly Happy" concerns Robert Hanson (Jakob Cedergren), a good-looking Copenhagen cop who's transferred to a hick town after some problems in the big city. He doesn't want to be there, and the locals don't want him around, either. "We like to handle things our way, »

One thing you certainly can say about Danish cinema is that filmmakers from Denmark tend to have very unique sensibilities in terms of look and tone unlike that of filmmakers from any other part of the world, including the United States. That's why it's so interesting to see a movie like the crime thriller Terribly Happy from filmmaker Henrik Ruben Genz, which has elements of those Danish sensibilities but a look and feel like some of the great thrillers of the '70s like Sam Peckinpah's Straw Dogs to the horror classic The Wicker Man , as well as the likes of Hitchcock and the Coen Brothers. Based on the novel by Genz's childhood friend Erling Jepsen ("The Art of Crying"), the suspenseful film stars Jakob Cedergren as Robert Hanson, a police officer from »
This Friday, Oscilloscope Laboratories will release Danish filmmaker Henrik Ruben Genz's Terribly Happy in New York, with more dates to follow in San Francisco, Los Angeles, Boston, Denver and more. From the official synopsis:
Robert Hanson (Jakob Cedergren) is a Copenhagen police officer who, following a nervous breakdown, is transferred to a small provincial town to take on the mysteriously vacated Marshall position and subsequently gets mixed up with a married femme fatale. Robert’s big city temperament makes it impossible for him to fit in, or understand the uncivilized, bizarre behavior displayed by the townspeople. Quickly spiraling downward into an intense fable reminiscent of the Coen Brothers' Blood Simple and No Country for Old Men, Terribly Happy displays a unique, often macabre vision of the darkest depths to which people will go to achieve a sense of security and belonging.

So many films strive and fail to achieve the dark weirdness that we identify with the Coen brothers or, darker still, David Lynch -- that sense of a world suddenly tilted askew, with everyone casually playing by a set of rules you've never heard about. Think about films like Barton Fink or Blue Velvet -- and think about how few of their imitators have even come close to capturing that sense of quietly unhinged spookiness that can trigger shivers -- or laughter. Henrik Ruben Genz's Terribly Happy, opening in limited release Friday (2/5/10), finds the sweet spot in that realm of disturbing, unpredictable drama tinged with the blackest possible comedy. Genz never works at it; he just lets his film unfold without trying to explain the seemingly alternate reality into which the film's ostensible hero, a struggling cop named Robert Hanson »
