"The Lego Movie" took home the Award for Outstanding Producer of Animated Theatrical Motion Pictures for producer Dan Lin while "Life Itself" won the Award for Outstanding Producer of Documentary Theatrical Motion Pictures for producers Garrett Basch, Steve James, and Zak Piper.

Meanwhile, Alejandro G. Iñárritu, John Lesher, and James W. Skotchdopole took the Oscar glitter away from Richard Linklater's "Boyhood" when "Birdman" was awarded the Darryl F. Zanuck Award for Outstanding Producer of Theatrical Motion Pictures.

The Oscars just got interesting! Will "Boyhood" triumph over "Birdman" at the Academy Awards?

In TV land, NBC was the big winner of the evening with two of their shows taking home trophies for Competition Television ("The Voice") and Live Entertainment & Talk Television ("The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon »

‘Birdman’ Wins Top Producers Guild Award

24 January 2015 10:22 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Oscar-snubbed “Life Itself” and “The Lego Movie” win documentary and animation awards

Birdman” was named the best-produced feature of 2014 at the Producers Guild Awards on Saturday night, giving the daring Alejandro Iñárritu film new life in the Oscar race for Best Picture.

“Boyhood” was considered the most likely PGA winner and the Oscar leader, but the critical favorite now finds itself in the same spot “The Social Network” was in four years ago. That film swept the critics’ awards and the Golden Globes, but then lost the PGA to “The King’s Speech,” which rode a string of guild wins to victory at the Oscars. »

'Birdman' wins PGA Award, next stop Oscar?

24 January 2015 10:22 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Ever since "The Hurt Locker" triumphed over "Avatar" at the 2010 Producers Guild Awards, it has been rather obvious to me that this precursor announcement is the skeleton key to understanding how the Oscar vote will likely play out. Why? Because — as we've noted a number of times — the PGA is the only group that shares the preferential ballot system the Academy employs. So what won this year? "Birdman" won, that's what. And for those who were chalking this up as a boring, telegraphed Oscar season… So, what does this mean for the rest of the season? It means, clearly, "Birdman" could well be poised to take the Best Picture Oscar next month. I, for one, thought "The Imitation Game" would be the one to unseat "Boyhood" this evening and assert itself as the industry favorite. I even thought "American Sniper" had an outside shot. I wasn't looking at "Birdman," though, »

The Most Awkward Adult Celeb Appearances on Kid Shows

23 January 2015 7:00 AM, PST | VH1.com | See recent VH1.com news »

-Aly Semigran

Popular kid shows like Sesame Street, Yo Gabba Gabba!, and Spongebob Squarepants aren’t always just for kids. Grown-ups have been known to not only tune in to the children’s-friendly programming (hey, some of them are really good!), but even appear on said shows. While stars like Jon Hamm, Ricky Gervais, Sarah Silverman , and Amy Poehler made the best of their time and had some seriously awesome cameos, other celebrities haven’t made quite the same impression. We’ve compiled the seven most awkward, inappropriate, or downright strange appearances by adults on kid shows.

Cookie Monster Is Getting A ‘Sesame Street’ Spin Off Special

For over 40 years, the characters of Sesame Street have been delighting children everywhere. It’s such a crazy, fun cast of characters and every few years, it feels like one or two of them get a moment in the sun. Big Bird had a few movies, Elmo had his tickle toy thing and now, it […]

Cookie Monster to go Solo

20 January 2015 3:28 PM, PST | Boomtron | See recent Boomtron news »

Sesame Street is looking on to capitalize on their franchise 40+ years late. This season we saw the blue, hungry Cookie Monster land his own show with Elmo. The duo has found success on The Furchester Hotel, making their team decide the need for more spin-off specials. Thus we now hear that they will start off by giving Cookie Monster his very own special entitle The Cookie Thief. It will follow the story of a new cookie themed museum that has their artwork go missing. This will premier sometime next month and will also have a website launched around it.

It seems like a fun idea. I am curious as to why they choose him over the other ones, especially when you consider Cookie Monster was never a major character. However, we do applaud them for a change of pace and we cannot wait to see where they go next with »

Cookie Monster Gets First Special on PBS’ Kids Lineup

19 January 2015 2:45 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Cookie Monster has shuffled about “Sesame Street” for decades, but he’s about to break out of the long-running kids program and get his own one-hour spotlight on PBS.

In “The Cookie Thief,” the blue-furred, googly-eyed creature will quickly become the prime suspect when works of art go missing from a newly opened cookie-art museum in the Sesame neighborhood. Cookie Monster must clear his name when a robust collection of paintings including the “Muncha Lisa” and “Girl With the Cookie Earring” comes under threat. Rachel Dratch, who held forth on “Saturday Night Live,” will serve as a guest star on the program.

At the heart of the new show is an exploration of the concepts of self-regulation, including impulse control, following directions and managing emotions. “These are important skills that all kids need when starting preschool and throughout their lives,” said Carol-Lynn Parente, executive producer of “Sesame Street,” in a statement. »

Macklemore and Oscar the Grouch Remix "Thrift Shop" for Sesame Street—Watch Now!

13 January 2015 6:18 AM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Macklemore has seriously upped his street cred—his Sesame Street cred, that is! The rapper teamed up with the one and only Oscar the Grouch to create a kid-friendly remix of his 2012 hit "Thrift Shop." Only, instead of searching the thrift shop for vintage clothes, these two looked for the yuckiest, grimiest trash they could in trash cans! The remix's beat remained the same as in the original, but in order to make it G-rated, dirty lyrics (as in, Oscar's kind of dirty) were swapped in for the explicit lines! Obviously, Macklemore couldn't rap that something is "f--king awesome" on a PBS show for children, but he and Oscar could celebrate what's "gross and »

Macklemore Reworks 'Thrift Shop' with Oscar the Grouch on Sesame Street (Video)

On Tuesday, Macklemore left Seattle for Sesame Street. The rapper, best known for his hits "Thrift Shop" and "Same Love," visited the beloved television show to rework "Thrift Shop" with none other than Oscar the Grouch. Wearing a slightly modified version of his usual kitchen-sink outfit, the 31-year-old rapper joined Oscar and the other Grouches to extoll the virtues of keeping an eye out for bargains - even if they happen to come from unexpected places ... like the trash. Come to think of it, that's pretty much the same message of "Thrift Shop," only instead of big-upping used clothing stores, »

It’s been a few years since Macklemore and Ryan Lewis dominated the chart with their breakthrough single “Thrift Shop.” But the rapper has managed to make it fresh again by partnering up with Oscar the Grouch from “Sesame Street.”

Maybe fresh isn’t the right word, as the focus of the song shifted from bargains found at a thrift shop to garbage found at a grouch shop.

TCA press tour preview: Hello 'Better Call Saul,' goodbye 'Mad Men' & 'Parks and Rec'

7 January 2015 8:45 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

We're about 15 minutes from the start of the winter 2015 Television Critics Association press tour, or TCA for short. If you've been following me for a while, you know all the ins and outs of press tour. If you haven't, the primer that I published again back in the summer is still very useful(*). (*) Tweeting a link to that primer last night led a fellow TCA member to unearth this picture of me inadvertently photobombing a young, unknown Jennifer Lawrence, back when she played Bill Engvall's daughter on a short-lived TBS sitcom. Press tour is a strange place, man. I actually won't be there for the tour's first few days, or its last few, as I'm trying to cut down the amount of time I'm away from my family, but Fienberg will be there today, and for virtually the entire tour (look for coverage on his blog), and I wanted »
