Saturday Night Live Plans 40th Anniversary Celebration

19 April 2014 4:31 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Look at the current landscape of American comedy in TV and film, and you will see an institution that has been shaped, molded and influenced by one show more than any other, for 39 years. Saturday Night Live has consistently proven itself to be the training ground for some of the best writers and performers in the business today, and it is preparing to celebrate its 40th anniversary.

Created by Lorne Michaels, and developed by Dick Ebersol (previously NBC’s Vice President of late-night programming) in 1975, Saturday Night Live is the late-night live television sketch comedy and variety show that was designed to parody culture and politics with a repertory cast, celebrity guest hosts and a musical guest performance each week. It is one of the longest-running network TV shows in America, with a bulging trophy cabinet that includes 36 prime-time Emmys, 3 Writer’s Guild Association awards and a Peabody. In 2012, it »

Happy 10th birthday Mean Girls, Tina Fey's timeless teen comedy

19 April 2014 1:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

How the film that made Lindsay Lohan a household name skewered the social hierarchies of American high schools and spawned a rabid cult following

Ten years ago this week, the film that would transform Lindsay Lohan into a teen movie queen premiered in the Us. Lilo's ticket to adolescent idolatry was handed to her by future 30 Rock creator Tina Fey then Saturday Night Live's head writer and director Mark Waters. Mean Girls would gross $129m, and although it didn't exactly revolutionise the high-school comedy genre, it injected sass at a time when the biggest hitters were largely samey Hilary Duff vehicles. With a plot that embraces and busts cliche in equal measure, a highly quotable screenplay and a killer cast, it gained a fanatical cult following.

Fey, who wrote the script, plays the film's moral compass, Ms Norbury. She drew inspiration for the screenplay from her own teenage years, »

‘Saturday Night Live’ to Celebrate 40th Anniversary with Special

18 April 2014 7:20 PM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Get ready to feel ancient: Saturday Night Live will celebrate its fortieth year on the air next year, marking the occasion with a surely epic and star-studded three-hour long special that will air on February 15th.

SNL is like fertile patch of land that seems to yield an endless supply of comedy talent, and as such, its alumni list is truly awe-inspiring. While many of those alumni might stop by for the 40th Anniversary special (will Eddie Murphy make his long-awaited return to the show that helped launch his career?), NBC doesn’t seem to have a guest list or a format down yet.

However, NBC Entertainment Chairman Robert Greenblatt seems dedicated to celebrating one of ...

NBC has announced that they are planning a three-hour special in honor of 'Saturday Night Live's' 40th anniversary on February 15th, 2015. As in past anniversary celebrations, major SNL figures will return for the special. Actor Chevy Chase, for example, returned for the 15th anniversary in 1989 and performed one of the skits that first made him famous when the program first premiered in 1975. Bill Murray also made an appearance for the show's 25th anniversary in 1999.  "This brand, which is still one of the highest-rated comedies on television, was the brainchild of Lorne Michaels, who still presides over the whole enterprise today,” said Robert Greenblatt, chairman of NBC Entertainment, in a statement. “This special is just one of the many ways we plan to celebrate ‘SNL’s historic 40th season next year."  Although no one has been confirmed for the special, look out for some of the old players in the coming months. »

18 April 2014 11:38 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

You thought that maybe "Saturday Night Live" was going to ignore its 40th birthday? NBC announced on Friday (April 18) that "Saturday Night Live" will celebrate its Ruby Anniversary next February with a three-hour orgy of clips, guests and back-patting.  Set for Sunday, February 15, 2015, the "Saturday Night Live" anniversary special will feature past and present cast members, as well as musical guests from the show's lengthy run. NBC will milk many months of coverage for the special by parsing out announcements over the next several months. One thing we can say for sure? Generallissimo Francisco Franco will not be there. He's still dead. “‘Saturday Night Live’ is an institution unlike anything else in television history,” blurbs Robert Greenblatt, Chairman, NBC Entertainment. “The many brilliant ‘Not Ready for Primetime Players’ over the years is a who’s who of film and television comedy for the last two generations.

Obvious Child Gets Its First Trailer

18 April 2014 5:17 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Having travelled the festival circuit, steadily gathering critical and popular acclaim along the way, we now get see what all that positive word-of-mouth is about, as Obvious Child gets its first trailer.

The feature-length directorial debut of Gillian Robespierre – from a story and script she wrote with Karen Maine, Elisabeth Holm and Anna BeanObvious Child is based on their 2009 short film of the same name, and stars Saturday Night Live alum Jenny Slate as Donna – an aspiring comedian who finds herself in the throes of an emotional and financial crisis, compounded by an unplanned pregnancy. What do all the people listed here have in common? That’s right – they’re all women.

Though the trailer predictably packages this film as a romantic comedy – following scenes of angst with the inevitable and usual montage of a distressed woman being cheered by best friends, finding new love and randomly dancing – it then becomes something else. »

7 Pieces of Vital Information We Learned From 'All That'

17 April 2014 6:10 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

For regular viewers of Snick -- the legendary block of Saturday night programming on '90s Nickelodeon -- "All That" was the weekend cornerstone. The sketch series debuted April 16, 1994, and 20 years later it's safe to say we haven't given enough props to the silly, but often very funny show that showcased a broad range of talents (including Kenan Thompson and Jamie Lynn Spears) and some seriously grownup lessons. Here are six takeaways from the show that routinely dished out Vital Information For Our Everyday Lives. (I'm sticking to the early years of the 11-season series since, as a '90s Nick devotee, it's what I re-watched the most.) 1. Embrace your weirdness. Some billionaire will like you for it.  "Earboy" was a pretty wild idea. A kid with gigantic ears (Josh Server) is picked on for his strange features, and he's even friends with a literal Pizza Face and Four-Eyes. »

Tracy Morgan takes questions on Reddit: 'If you love me, I love you back'

17 April 2014 2:31 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

With a slate of upcoming comedy projects, the comedian embarked on a whirlwind media tour and addressed his past homophobic comments

Tracy Morgan, the talented 30 Rock comedian whose unpredictability once threatened to outshine his accomplishments, took questions on Reddit on Thursday as part of a tour to rehabilitate his image ahead of a new comedy special and standup tour.

The 45-year-old Morgan has seen his reputation tarnished in recent years by allegations of homophobic and sexist remarks. If my son were gay he better come home and talk to me like a man," Morgan said during a 2011 appearance before then saying he'd "pull out a knife" on his child. Morgan has three sons and one daughter.

I used to buy my own weed, and it wasn't laced with Pcp. I knew what I was smoking. I would never do that.

My favorite kind of pizza? I like just pepperoni and cheese. »

Tribeca Exclusive: 'SNL' Players Featured in Stills for Raucous Sports Drama Parody 'Intramural'

17 April 2014 12:07 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Sports dramas are a dime a dozen: a montage here, an inspirational speech there, and a finale at the Big Game. The genre gets an raucous send-up in "Intramural," and Indiewire has exclusive new stills before its premiere at Tribeca on Saturday night. "Intramural" stars Jake Lacy as Caleb, a fifth year senior who brings together his ragtag group of friends for one more shot at Intramural football before he graduates, gets married, and heads off into the real world. The film also takes on sports movie tropes such as the  exposition-spouting announcers, the underdogs vs. their fiercer competitors, and the tough new head coach. The film co-stars "Saturday Night Live" players Kate McKinnon, Beck Bennett and Jay Pharoah, among others, and was directed by Andrew Disney ("Searching for Sonny") from a script by Bradley Jackson.

The 20 Best Summer Blockbusters of All Time: 'Animal House'

17 April 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Fat, drunk, and stupid may not be the best way to go through life, but it sure does create one memorable film character!

Movies have often been set in and around college campuses, but none quite like Animal House. From toga parties to food fights, the film not only introduced us to many collegiate cinematic clichés, but pretty much reinvented the entire genre. When you think of a college movie, you think of Animal House.
