While some Afm buyers were sitting on their wallets and spilling blood this year in hopes of scoring Quentin Tarantino’s Hateful Eight, others were ponying up for the schlock and genre awe that still sells in Santa Monica. This year a new trend brought heat to the halls of the Loews: Ebola. Not just ebola, but ebola zombies. Is anyone out there ready to see ebola spread to the undead?
Here’s one way to defuse the tacky sensationalism of Afm schlock-hawking: Apologize in advance. “Is it too soon?” genre seller Rob Hauschild asked the buyers and lookyloos who stopped, did double takes, and even took selfies with the poster for Ebola Zombies this year. He’d break the ice with a smile and a sheepish shrug. “I’m sorry!”
The audacity worked; Hauschild sold Ebola Zombies to Germany and is closing a deal with a Japanese distributor for his Wild Eye Releasing, »

The whole year, I have been looking for The Oscar season frontrunner for Best Actress. I was hoping Shailene Woodley from "The Fault in Our Stars" would squeak in, but now, the lovely, talented, and ultra-sweet Julianne Moore is the one to beat!
Her double whammy performances for "Map to the Stars" and "Still Alice" solidify that notion. And just this morning, the Palm Springs International Film Festival just called her The best actress of the year! Moore will be receiving the Desert Palm Achievement Award, Actress, at the festival's Awards Gala.
I can't wait! I will be on the red carpet to chat it up with the fantastic Miss Moore! She will be joining the equally talented Eddie Redmayne from "The Theory of Everything" at the gala where the actor is set to receive the Desert Palm Achievement Award, Actor.
Here's the full press release from the Psiff:
Palm Springs, »
Julianne Moore might be the hottest actress in the Oscar race this year, and most voters haven’t even seen her film yet. This four-time Oscar nominee and Emmy winner for Game Change is considered overdue for a win. Still Alice, in which she plays a victim of early-onset Alzheimer’s, offers her a great opportunity to finally take home that statuette, and today the Palm Springs International Film Festival announced that she will receive the Actress prize at this year’s gala on January 3. Eddie Redmayne was previously announced for the fest’s Actor prize, and both are considered front-runners in the Oscar race, so Psiff is just jumping on the bandwagon.
Every precursor award a contender can get just makes them seem more inevitable for the final win. Moore certainly is deserving, and it is looking like her year. In May, she won the Best Actress prize at »

Two years ago, the batshit crazy movie Iron Sky was released. The grindhouse/b-movie about Nazis on the moon attacking Earth was so bad it was amazing. So, naturally, a sequel was needed. Through an IndieGoGo campaign, Iron Sky: The Coming Race has unveiled a teaser that features not only Nazis but also dinosaurs, Hitler, and Sarah Palin. All at the center of the Earth. Yeah, nothing I just said in the previous paragraph sounds remotely plausible and yet I want to see this movie a hell »

A warning for anyone who finds themselves on a plane with “The View's” Nicolle Wallace: do not tell her to keep her child quiet.

Despite boasting that it presents life in the raw, MTVs new reality show is a slick, seedy mash-up of its previous hits
A full six-years after the presidential election that launched Sarah Palin and the town of Wasilla, Alaska, to global prominence, MTV has now debuted a comedic docu-series about life there, naturally titled Slednecks. Rehashing the tried-and-true Jersey Shore model, it follows a group of friends aged 19-24 who boldly proclaim that they embody all that is tough, wild, raunchy and wonderful about life in the northernmost state.
The 90-minute debut episode boasts little in the way of plot. The main narrative focuses on couple Kelly and Sierra, who have known each other since kindergarten, having grown up on the same trailer park. Theyve been dating for two years and live together in a house that is aggressively unfinished. This is a Wasilla trait: the whole cast pride themselves »

Following the premiere of MTV’s Slednecks (Thursday, 10/9c), Sarah Palin will be the last thing you associate with Wasilla, Alaska. From now on, it’ll be all about whale blubber, explosions and guys named Big Mike.

The network’s latest docuseries follows 11 thrill-seeking Alaskan friends — think Laguna Beach meets Buckwild meets Frozen — as they work, party and just plain survive in one of the country’s most remote locations. And even with the group’s over-the-top shenanigans, which range from taking shots of caribou blood to competing in an amateur go-go dancing contest, »
The wedding of Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard on TLC’s “19 Kids & Counting” scored big in the ratings Tuesday night, racking up the series’ largest audience ever and the biggest for any telecast on the network in four years.
Nielsen estimates that the two-hour wedding episode averaged a 1.5 rating/4 share in adults 18-49 and 4.41 million viewers overall, making TLC the No. 1 cable network for the night in all key female demos.
Among Tuesday night programs, “19 Kids & Counting” was No. 1 in cable in women 18-49 (2.4/8), women 25-54 (2.4/7) and women 18-34 (2.3/9). In fact, in the women 18-34 demo, the only series on television to fare better in women 18-34 on Tuesday was NBC’s “The Voice” (2.7/10).
In total viewers, Tuesday’s episode of “19 Kids” averaged the largest audience for TLC since the premiere of “Sarah Palin’s Alaska” in November 2010 (4.95 million).
Next week’s episode of “19 Kids & Counting” will be followed at 10 p. »

Sarah Palin took to Fox Business on Tuesday to do what she does best: Take aim at “haters.” Appearing on the news channel's Varney & Co. via satellite from Alaska — where she was governor for less than one term before rising to national prominence as John McCain's 2008 presidential campaign running mate — Palin answered host Stuart Varney's leading questions about whether anyone has scared her off.

Sarah Palin scorched the media for making light of her family's “frightening” brawl at a party in Anchorage in September. Weeks after the incident was reported on fuzzy details — the Anchorage Police Department would not confirm the famous family was involved — Palin took to Facebook on Thursday to vent. See video: ‘The View's’ Nicolle Wallace on Working for Sarah Palin: I Have Political Staffer Version of Ptsd “What happened on the night in question wasn't funny. It was humiliating and frightening,” Palin wrote in a long status update. “The broken ribs, black eyes, and messed up elbows and knees suffered by. »

Bristol Palin, daughter of Sarah Palin, describes the alleged assault that kick started the ‘Palin family brawl’ that made headlines in September, claiming that a man pushed her on the ground and stole some of her effects.
Bristol Palin Police Audio
“I have a five year old in the car!” Bristol is heard screaming in the audio recording from Sept. 6. Clearly upset, Bristol can be heard telling the police that she was pushed down on the grass by a man, who then dragged her across the lawn, perhaps stealing her $300 sunglasses and shoes in the process.
“They took my $300 sunglasses, they took my f—king shoes, and I’m just f—king left here?” Bristol said before calming down a bit and describing the assault in detail.
“I’m gonna defend my sister, she’s 20 years old. A guy comes out of nowhere, pushes me on the ground, takes me by my feet, »

Make people laugh and they won't even realize you're making them think. Over the past 50 years, women have broken through the glass ceiling time after time, shattering stereotypes and thumbing their noses at the old chestnut that "Women aren't funny." Fact: Anybody who says women aren't funny doesn't want them to be funny. We're looking back on the 50 funniest women of the past 50 years, their contributions to comedy, and their enduring legacies that inspire men and women alike. These are the 50 women who have helped (and are helping) to introduce the next class of hilarious women, which will inevitably include Amy Schumer, Lena Dunham, Mindy Kaling, Tig Notaro, Chelsea Handler, Maria Bamford, Aubrey Plaza, and Kate McKinnon. Keep in mind this list only includes women who are primarily performers in movies, television, and standup comedy. That's why you don't see legends like Nora Ephron, Anne Beatts, and Elaine May here. »

Last week, CBS premiered the new political drama Madam Secretary, which stars Téa Leoni as Elizabeth Faulkner McCord, the U.S. Secretary of State. It's hardly a far-fetched concept, as we've seen three female secretaries of state since 1997: Madeleine Albright, Condoleezza Rice and Hillary Clinton. But it's nonetheless rare to see a fictional universe with a woman in one of the nation's top three positions of political power. (Yep, even in fake realities, politics is a man's game.) And historically speaking, Hollywood has played it as a joke more often than not. So which fictional female presidents, vice presidents »

Bristol Palin Slut-Shamed
The fight that went on to include patriarch Todd Palin, Bristol, Track and Willow, started when Bristol saw the wife of the host push Willow, 20. In her account of the event to police, a “heavily intoxicated” Bristol claimed that host Korey Klingenmeyer pushed her to the ground, dragged her about the lawn by her feet and called her an assortment of names, including slut and c—t, according to a police report obtained by TMZ.
Klingenmeyer and other guests at his snowmobile party claim that Bristol struck him first, punching him five to six times before he grabbed her fist and pushed her to the ground.
After Bristol hit the ground, the stories align to recall Track, 25, Todd and others stepping in to defend Bristol. »
