See what stars wore to the first People Magazine Awards

1 hour ago

People magazine gave stars a reason to dress up Thursday with their first ever People Magazine Awards, where celebrities like Jennifer Lopez and Gwen Stefani showed up in their awards show best. The red carpet wasn't as stiff as, say, the Oscars though: Mad Men's Elisabeth Moss (who has previously proved she's not above flipping off the mani-cam) stuck out her tongue to the camera, while Devious MaidsRoselyn Sanchez forewent professional photographers in favor of snapping her own photo with a selfie stick. »

'People' names Kate Upton 'Sexiest Woman Alive'

1 hour ago

Usually it's just the men who get all the attention when People's "Sexiest Alive" announcement rolls around each year, but now the magazine is adding ladies to the mix: People named model Kate Upton the "Sexiest Woman Alive" at Thursday's inaugural People Magazine Awards. Upton's best known for her work modeling for Sports Illustrated - she covered the magazine's 2012 swimsuit issue -- but she's also spent some time on the big screen, most recently in this year's The Other Woman.  Eric Dane of Grey's Anatomy and The Last Ship fame introduced Upton, who boarded the stage to give her own »

'Serial' finale: Sarah Koenig rests her case

6 hours ago

"I don't think you'll ever have 100 percent or any type of certainty about it. The only person in the world who can have that is me... and, for what it's worth, whoever did it." —Adnan Syed Your honor, the podcast rests. After a year of investigative research masterfully molded into 12 riveting podcasts, Sarah Koenig and her Serial colleagues signed off with some new hope for imprisoned murderer Adnan Syed—but also troubling suspicions that he had murdered his ex-girlfriend, Hae Min Lee, in 1999. Though facts that determine beyond reasonable doubt whether Syed is guilty or innocent still prove elusive, many »

'Arrow', 'Walking Dead', and more earn TV mid-season finale awards

7 hours ago

It's officially that time of year when all your shows are on hiatus—leaving you to ponder (and possibly re-watch) their fall finales for the next month of your life. In other words, your holidays will be plagued with thoughts like these: "Where is Olivia Pope?" "Is Oliver Queen really dead?" "What's going to happen to Cary Agos?" Before you get too deep into the "what does it all mean" portion of the coping process, let's acknowledge some of the best and worst moments that 2014's mid-season finales had to offer. To do that, we've handed out a few (figurative »

Spider-Woman has a cool new costume

8 hours ago

Back in August, there was a bit of controversy around the new Spider-Woman series—specifically focusing on a variant cover that was a bit suggestive, like how Basic Instinct was a bit suggestive or Shame was a bit Fassbender-y. One thing that got a bit lost in the controversy: There's a new Spider-Woman series! Jessica Drew has been a superpowered bench player for decades, and it's always cool to see another female-centric mainstream superhero series. »

Chelsea Peretti started her stand-up career by telling fart jokes

9 hours ago

Chelsea Peretti has some advice for aspiring stand-up comedians: Stage time, stage time, stage time, stage time -- oh, and stage time. And yes, she realizes how irritating repeating "stage time" is. Peretti currently stars as Gina on Fox's Brooklyn Nine-Nine and just released a stand-up special on Netflix titled Chelsea Peretti: One of the Greats, but, just like any of the greats, Peretti had to get her start somewhere -- and that start was on a stage where she made poorly received jokes about the always-popular subject of crop dusting. Along the way, Peretti's looked to people like Amy Poehler, »

'School of Rock' musical coming to Broadway, courtesy of Andrew Lloyd Webber

10 hours ago

Jack Black, Downton Abbey, and The Phantom of the Opera don’t necessarily go together, but that changes with the arrival of composer Andrew Lloyd Webber’s latest musical passion project on Broadway. School of Rock—The Musical, a stage adaptation based on the hit 2003 film starring Black as a wannabe rocker who forms a band at a prestigious prep school, will make its world premiere in New York at Broadway’s Winter Garden Theatre. Previews begin Nov. 2, 2015 in anticipation of a Dec. 6 opening. »

Telltale Games announces new 'Minecraft' episodic video game series

12 hours ago

Story-driven experiences created by a game developer are definitely not the first thing players may think of when discussing Minecraft, but it's most certainly a quality that's come to define developer Telltale Games. And so while the idea of a Minecraft game all about narrative and characters may seem odd, it makes all the more sense when it's in the hands of the team behind The Walking Dead and Tales from the Borderlands. »

Lady Gaga recalls some good advice she got from a stripper

12 hours ago

Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett have a few things in common: musical talent, the album they just made together, and their appearance on The Tonight Show last night, to name a few. But there are other areas where the two of them are very different. For example, when Jimmy Fallon brought up that one time Bennett took advice from a cab driver in New York, he then asked Gaga if she'd ever taken advice from a stranger. She had. Only she got her advice from an elderly stripper in Atlanta. As you do. »

'Gone With the Wind' at 75: A first-time viewer and an expert discuss

13 hours ago

Hillary Busis has seen Gone with the Wind approximately one billion times. Neil Janowitz ... hasn't. On the occasion of the film's recent 75th anniversary, he decided to change that. Hillary: Neil: It breaks my heart (but doesn't totally surprise me) to hear that you've never seen or read Gone With the Wind. I'm gonna start by asking you a simple question: What do you know (or think you know) about Margaret Mitchell's classic story? »

'The Sing-Off' recap: One night, six groups, 800 blazers

20 hours ago

Well, here we are, at the most wonderful time of the year: The Sing-Off is back, and you can never really know for how long, so cherish every minute, even when they all come on the same night. In its fifth season of dodging the eviction notice NBC keeps hiding in Shawn Stockman’s dressing room, The Sing-Off returned as a one-night, two-hour holiday special. And even at just two hours—half the length of a typical singing show’s weekly allotment—I stand by this being the best happiest show on television. Hyperbolic? Sure. But what is a cappella for, »

Truth, answers, and other things 'Serial' never promised you

17 December 2014 5:14 PM, PST

"You want answers?" "I think I'm entitled!" "You. Want. Answers?!" "I want the Truth!" "You can't handle the truth!" —A Few Good Men Since the first week of October, millions of listeners have tuned into a weekly podcast that reinvestigated the 1999 murder of a Baltimore high school student. Adnan Syed was convicted and sentenced to life in prison for strangling his ex-girlfriend, Hae Min Lee, but the Serial podcast, narrated by Sarah Koenig, has tantalized an obsessive audience with the possibility that an innocent man has been in prison for 15 years. If you haven't become an obsessed listener, there's a »

What to expect from the season 5 'Sing-Off' groups: A very careful aca-sessment

17 December 2014 2:24 PM, PST

The first time I heard that The Sing-Off was going to be limited to a one-night special this year, I went through some pretty serious turmoil. All five stages of grief passed through in a matter of minutes: Denial that the entirety of season 5 could potentially only include one Nick Lachey jewel tone button-down; Anger that NBC was doing this to us; Bargaining that we might somehow lure Ben Folds back in a judge's chair with a Warby Parker gift basket of sorts; Depression that Home Free would be unceremoniously replaced as the reigning champs in just two short hours; and finally, »

Entertainment Geekly: What 'Hobbit 3' says about Peter Jackson

17 December 2014 12:04 PM, PST

There's a moment in The Hobbit 3 that I'm going to spoil for you, because nothing else that happens in The Hobbit 3 really matters. It's a moment of crisis for Thorin Oakenshield. "Who is Thorin Oakenshield?" is something you might be asking, even if you've seen the first two Hobbit movies. It's hard to keep track of names in these Hobbit movies, even though half the dialogue is just people saying names. Which is strange. Because when Jackson and co-writers Philippa Boyens and Fran Walsh adapted The Lord of the Rings, they found a way to sharpen J.R.R. Tolkien's dense prose into thrill-drunk poetry. »

Can we stop talking about how great 'The Simpsons' is?

17 December 2014 11:45 AM, PST

As someone who writes about both television and comic books, I'm often surprised at how ruthless their fans can be. There's always a vocal contingent that seems willing to abandon a series at the drop of a hat, making a big show of quitting it—or at least talking about quitting, should it fail to clear some threshold of quality. Whether or not they actually do quit is another question altogether. But if there's one question that's bugged me, it's this: Why does The Simpsons, which celebrates its 25th anniversary today, get a pass? »

Lena Dunham won the red carpet this year (by losing it)

17 December 2014 11:30 AM, PST

It's been 13 years since Björk laid an egg at the Academy Awards. And if the Oscars', Emmys', and Golden Globes' red carpets are the Triple Crown of Thoroughbred Gowns, that's nearly 40 nights of appropriate and borrowed, jewel-toned and fish-tailed, corporate-sponsored parade floats accessorized with diamonds, security guards, and phonetically spelled designer names for E! Entertainment's "mani cam" (Moh-neek Luh-hoo-lee-ay). As award show arrivals have morphed into a shameless interstate billboard—stars can earn a cool million for their jewelry choices alone—red carpet fashion has in turn become a bland gated community filled with highly rehearsed Vanna Whites pretending they actually picked out their clothes. »

Watch celebrities talk about their favorite holiday movies -- like, you know, 'The Big Lebowski'

17 December 2014 10:46 AM, PST

As the holiday season rolls around, EW got around to asking film and television stars about the movies they like to watch around the holidays. We learned many things about stars' holiday viewing choices, like how depressingly enjoyable Alex Borstein finds the Charlie Brown movies, and how Amber Tamblyn enjoys an annual viewing of The Big Lebowski. Also, Lisa Edelstein does not like holidays! Girlfriends' Guide to Divorcing Holiday Movies is more like it, right? »

Watch a spot-on 'Serial' parody from Funny or Die

17 December 2014 10:03 AM, PST

On Thursday, true-crime podcast Serial will release its first season's 12th and final episode. Along with producer Julie Snyder, host Sarah Koenig has attempted to determine whether Adnan Syed was wrongfully convicted of Baltimore high school student Hae Min Lee's 1999 murder. Listeners have started to question if Koenig will even try to cast judgment on the case, given the lack of conclusive evidence. Television and movies have conditioned us for tidy endings, which Serial might not have. A new Funny or Die short pokes fun at that. »
