7 hours ago

We have a new World’s Ugliest Dog and she’s a big one. The now famous World’s Ugliest Dog Contest in Petaluma, California at the Sonoma-Marin Fair crowned a winner Friday night — Martha, a 125-pound Neapolitan Mastiff, took home the title along with her handler Shirley Zindler.

Thomas Schlamme Elected President of Directors Guild

7 hours ago

Thomas Schlamme has been elected president of the Directors Guild of America, the second consecutive DGA president to come from the ranks of television rather than film directors. The election took place in Los Angeles at the DGA convention, which meets every two years and chooses a president as part of its agenda. Schlamme will replace outgoing president Paris Barclay, a television director who served two two-year terms, the traditional length of service for a guild president. (There is, however, no rule prohibiting a president from serving more than that.) Prior to winning the presidency, Schlamme had served as the Directors. »

‘Feud’ Stars Susan Sarandon, Jessica Lange on Plight of Hollywood Women: ‘We Were Aged Out’

9 hours ago

This story about “Feud: Bette and Joan” first appeared in the Miniseries/Movies issue of TheWrap Emmy magazine. There’s a line that pops up several times in the limited run of “Feud: Bette and Joan,” and repetition does not make its sentiment any less true: “Feuds aren’t about hate, they’re about pain.” Ryan Murphy’s latest FX franchise digs deep into the mutually-inflicted wounds of show business icons Joan Crawford and Bette Davis, and the corporate and societal machinery that pitted them against each other. Murphy’s frequent leading lady Jessica Lange plays Crawford, and Susan Sarandon »

Mark Hamill Deems Jar Jar Tongue Candy as Goofiest ‘Star Wars’ Merchandise Ever Created

9 hours ago

Mark Hamill is something of a merchandise connoisseur thanks to his decades starring in the nerdiest, most merchandise-heavy franchise in history and a lifetime of being into the hobby himself (see his show “Pop Culture Quest”). So when he deems something the goofiest piece of “Star Wars” merchandise he’s ever seen, we can trust that he speaks the truth. It all began on Wednesday, which was National Selfie Day, when Hamill tweeted a pic of himself wearing a shirt with his face on it. The Twitter account for Star Wars Reporter then sent him a tweet reminding him that there was. »

Dan Harmon Shuts Down Rumors About ‘Rick and Morty’ Season 3 Delay

12 hours ago

Rick and Morty” creator Dan Harmon took to Twitter Saturday to shut down rumors that the reason Season 3 was taking so long was because of his feud with co-creator and star Justin Roiland. Instead, he said that the delay is because writing a successful TV show that’s a critical and fan darling is hard. “The reason S3 took long is because it took long to write, because it was S3 of a show that we were scared to make worse than S2 or S1,” he tweeted. “It’s a common yet odd phenomenon. Tail-chasing, perfectionism, overthinking?” Fans have been eagerly waiting for. »

‘Game of Thrones': New Data Shows Which Characters Are the Most Important

12 hours ago

I was having a conversation with a co-worker the other day when he asked me who the main character on “Game of Thrones” was going into Season 7. Although Sansa certainly shows up the most in the recent trailer, I didn’t have a definitive answer. Luckily, new data provides better insight into the importance of the HBO show’s gigantic cast of characters and asserts who might be the show’s main character. And according to that data, it’s everybody’s favorite scarred — alcoholic dwarf Tyrion Lannister, played by Peter Dinklage. Analytics firm Looker got its hands on some data from across the internet. »

Fleetwood Mac has had a change or two of style along their 50-year incarnation, but one thing has not changed, and that is the genius of its namesake, Mick Fleetwood.

‘Transformers: The Last Knight’ Rolls to Franchise-Low $64 Million 5-Day Opening

17 hours ago

Paramount’s “Transformers” franchise may still be a hot ticket overseas, but it seems to have run out of fuel with American audiences. The series’ fifth film, “The Last Knight,” is on pace for a $64.3 million five-day opening after grossing $13.7 million on Friday from 4,069 screens. That opening hits the $63-70 million window set by independent trackers at the start of the week, and the $40-42 million it is estimated to gross from just weekend sales will be enough to give it the No. 1 spot at the box office.

23 June 2017 10:25 PM, PDT

Now that we have had Mother’s Day and Father’s Day, Bill Maher wants to set aside this Sunday to celebrate people who are neither with a new holiday that he’d like to call “I Didn’t Reproduce Day.” The “Real Time” comedian made it perfectly clear during Friday night’s show that he has nothing against having children because, after all, they are the “leaders of tomorrow.” But he thinks it’s time to celebrate single people with a holiday of their own. “We spent a lifetime being the cool aunts and uncles but while we celebrate everybody else nobody celebrates us, »

23 June 2017 9:56 PM, PDT

Bill Maher has been called everything from racist to an Islamaphobe for his heated debates over the nature of Islam, but Friday night he found himself on the same side of the issue when counter-extremism expert, Maajid Nawaz, guested on his HBO show, “Real Time.” Nawaz, who is also the founder of anti-extremist think-tank Quilliam, announced his plan to file a crowd-funded defamation of character lawsuit against the Southern Poverty Law Center (Splc), a nonprofit legal advocacy organization specializing in civil rights that put Nawaz on an “anti-Muslim extremists” list. “I’d like to be part of that crowd,” Maher said, »

Haley Joel Osment plays a fun-loving character on “Silicon Valley” — and the actor himself is having a pretty good time these days, too. The former child star, now 29, is still perhaps best known for early-career roles in “The Sixth Sense” and “A.I.” But he’s quickly earning buzz for his turn as positive-to-a-fault VR expert Keenan Feldspar on Season 4 of the HBO ensemble comedy. “I had a blast,” the actor told The Wrap about shooting his part on “Silicon Valley.” Also Read: 'Silicon Valley' Star Thomas Middleditch on TJ Miller's Exit: 'Lots of Things Could Have Been Done »

CNN Resorts to Sketching White House Press Briefings, Draws Derision

23 June 2017 5:51 PM, PDT

In response to the White House press team’s troubling habit of refusing to do on-camera press briefings, CNN has found a workaround that also functions as a dry critique: It sent in a courtroom sketch artist. The images Friday provided a much-needed visual element for CNN, and also highlight the silliness of Trump Administration officials refusing to be seen speaking for the chief executive. (Accountability is important, given the president’s propensity for lying, which is meticulously documented here.) Asked this week why briefings are being held off-camera, Trump adviser Steve Bannon explained, “Sean got fat,” referring to embattled press secretary Sean Spicer. »

23 June 2017 5:21 PM, PDT

You can learn a lot walking around VidCon — the premiere online video conference — and that’s exactly what I’ve done the last three days at the Anaheim Convention Center in California.

This isn’t a convention for those on the periphery of entertainment — VidCon now represents the mainstream. With that in mind, here’s what I’ve learned after talking to YouTube creators, Instagram influencers, industry suits, and bobbing-and-weaving through hoards of teenagers.
