Amy Adams hosts 'Saturday Night Live' this weekend -- talk about it here

14 hours ago

Sorry, Amy—but North Korea may have just hijacked your Saturday Night Live Christmas show. Normally, SNL's last episode of the year is a merry occasion filled with starry cameos, seasonal good vibes, schweddy balls (if we're lucky), and plenty of extra musical interludes—à la Jimmy Fallon and Cecily Strong's sweet "Baby It's Cold Outside" update, or Fallon and friends' "I Wish It Was Christmas Today," or "Do It on my Twin Bed" (which, yes, also features Fallon). Given Adams' own sunny disposition and proven singing ability, we can certainly still count on seeing this sort of thing come tonight's show. »

PopWatch Confessional: Your best entertainment-related gift

19 December 2014 12:05 PM, PST

It's beginning to look a lot like gift-mas around EW's headquarters—which is why we decided to devote this week's PopWatch Confessional to the real reason for the season (read: presents). The question posed to our staffers: What's the best pop culture-related gift you've ever received? Molly Smith, editorial assistant: My friend is an artist, and one of our favorite movies is Step Brothers. She painted me a portrait of the Step Brothers cover, but replaced Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly with James Blunt and Clay Aiken, artists we poke fun at occasionally. (The painting is pictured above.) It’s certainly a conversation starter! »

Fight zombies in 'Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare' with John Malkovich (yes, really)

19 December 2014 11:19 AM, PST

Call of Duty's Zombies mode has been a staple of the franchise, in which the shooter franchise that attempts to ground players in realistic wartime combat scenarios lets loose and floods those war zones with hordes of the undead. Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare is no different, and this time around, Activision has brought in a number of recognizable actors to help stave off the zombie plague. One of them is John Malkovich. »

Hollywood reacts to 'The Interview' cancellation at People Magazine Awards

19 December 2014 6:17 AM, PST

On Wednesday, news broke that Sony Pictures Entertainment was canceling the theatrical release of The Interview. The move came as the result of a cyber attack against the studio and violent threats against cineplexes that intended to screen the film. The following day, at Thursday’s inaugural People Magazine Awards, Entertainment Weekly asked those in attendance their opinions on the matter. The issue is, of course, complicated. On one hand, while the film’s subject matter is controversial—it centers on an assassination attempt against North Korean leader Kim Jong-un—filmmakers have the right to free speech. On the other hand, »

People Magazine Awards: The night's best moments

19 December 2014 4:54 AM, PST

Mindy Kaling and Chris Messina made sure to make their acceptance speech at Thursday's People Magazine Awards memorable: The duo received the award for "TV Couple of the Year" and used their time onstage as an opportunity to share a steamy moment, one that surely satisfied Mindy Project fans who are missing the show after its fall finale. The People Magazine Awards, hosted by Nick Cannon, awarded stars for their work in TV and movies. The show featured performances by hit-makers like Gwen Stefani and Maroon 5, but the real highlights included that Mindy-Messina moment, Jon Hamm's attempts at airport humor, »

'The Colbert Report' wraps up with an immortal, star-studded finale

18 December 2014 9:34 PM, PST

Truly, it's the end of a Colbera. And what an end it was! The final episode of The Colbert Report—which began, as his shows often did, with a toss from Colbert's old boss/buddy Jon Stewart—started off slow; the faux pundit didn't even formally acknowledge that tonight's half-hour would be his last until halfway through his first segment. »

See what stars wore to the first People Magazine Awards

18 December 2014 7:20 PM, PST

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'

18 December 2014 7:08 PM, PST

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

18 December 2014 2:42 PM, PST

"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

18 December 2014 1:07 PM, PST

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

18 December 2014 12:01 PM, PST

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

18 December 2014 11:00 AM, PST

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

18 December 2014 10:00 AM, PST

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.

Telltale Games announces new 'Minecraft' episodic video game series

18 December 2014 8:50 AM, PST

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

18 December 2014 7:54 AM, PST

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

18 December 2014 7:15 AM, PST

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

18 December 2014 12:03 AM, PST

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 »
