The 82-year-old entertainer recalled having "a big, ugly bun" in her best-known movie, Singin' in the Rain.
"Luckily, George gave her two buns."
But later she also called The Unsinkable Molly Brown her favourite. She received her only Oscar nomination for the 1964 film.
"I got to sing a song called 'I Ain't Down Yet,'" she said. "Well, I ain't."
The acerbic Fisher lovingly and bitingly celebrated her mother before turning over the mic. »

Lupita Nyong'o is in love...with a print! Never one to play it safe, the star of Star Wars: The Force Awakens turned heads when she walked the red carpet at the 21st Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards at The Shrine Auditorium in L.A. Sunday. The actress modeled a floor-length, floral print gown that featured dramatic black stripes. The daring design came from Elie Saab's Pre-Fall 2015 collection, which was unveiled in December 2014. Nyong'o, 31, completed her look with Sophia Webster heels and Art-Deco-inspired Fred Leighton diamond earrings. Nyong'o and Jared Leto, 43, co-presented the award for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Television Movie or Miniseries to Mark Ruffalo for The Normal »
Castle shaking up the status quo appears to be paying off, judging by its recent fun and entertaining episodes...
This review contains spoilers.
7.11 Castle, P.I. & 7.12 Private Eye Caramba!
When last we left Kate and Rick, before the mid-winter hiatus, Castle had taken one of the more adventurous turns imaginable on the show. It had undermined its entire premise.
From the beginning, one of the more outrageous aspects of the series is the idea that, in the lawsuit-happy world of law enforcement and public safety, a writer would be given not just permission to do a long-term ride-along with the NYPD, but access to Leo databases, crime scene reports, personal information on private citizens—basically all the tools that allow what former NY mayor Bloomberg once called the “seventh biggest army in the world” to do its job.
Okay, it’s not like television audiences haven’t been asked to swallow more preposterous concepts. »
Every year, stars get together at the SAG Awards to congratulate each other on how awesome they all are with a lavish, unhosted ceremony that speeds along at a quick pace because everyone wants to get their naked man sculptures and hit up the after parties.
Because of the ceremony's weird place in the awards season – after the Oscar Nominations have been announced but before the Oscars actually take place - and the Golden Globes-esque mingling of television and film stars, sometimes the show can get real weird, real quick.
News: SAG Awards 2015: The Complete Winners List
Tonight’s ceremony was a rather low-key affair, but it still had some stand-out moments. Here are the best, the worst, and the most awkward moments of the night.

A few unexpected winners, a stumble on stage and some empty chairs were the highlights of Sunday’s show
The 2015 Screen Actors Guild Awards were held Sunday night in Los Angeles, with top prizes going to casts including those of “Birdman” and “Downton Abbey,” and with individual leading performance wins for Julianne Moore and Eddie Redmayne.

“She has been more than a mother to me — not much, but definitely more,” Fisher said of the Lifetime Achievement Award honoree
Carrie Fisher took to the stage at the Screen Actors Guild Awards to pay tribute to her mother Debbie Reynolds, as the 2015 recipient of the SAG Lifetime Achievement Award. She was sincere and funny in honoring her mother, who was famous in Hollywood before the “Star Wars” star was even born.
She kicked things off by confusing anyone in the audience who either wasn’t paying attention, or somehow didn’t know that Fisher was the daughter of Reynolds. »

A Tinseltown mainstay since the 1950s, Debbie Reynolds received the annual life achievement award at the 21st annual Screen Actors Guild Awards. Reynolds, 82, accepted the statuette at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles on Sunday night. "God gave us talent, so we're very fortunate," she said. "My favorite movie was The Unsinkable Molly Brown ... In that film, I got to sing a wonderful song called 'I Ain't Down Yet.' Well, I ain't. Thank you all so much for this wonderful award." The honor caps off her more than 60-year career in television and film. A Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer star, Reynolds landed »

A: It's lovely to see Carrie Fisher honoring her mother, Debbie Reynolds, after all the years of... neither one honoring the other. B: Nice glasses! The author, entertainer and Star Wars legend left the dual buns at home but brought out what appear to be a pair of Bono's spare 3-D glasses. (Hey, we're not the only ones who noticed--Twitter is absolutely wondering why she's wearing 3-D glasses.) »
Especially when it comes to big-budget genre blockbusters, hype has become an inseparable part of movie culture. Trailers, teasers and teasers for trailers, along with a steady drip-feed of news, rumors and inside reports, all these are well-handled tools in Hollywood’s ever-increasing mastery of getting you primed and ready to slap down your money. Add the fact that more and more Hollywood blockbusters are based off beloved properties or tied to ongoing series and yearly top-ten lists of the most anticipated blockbusters or summer movies of the year can tend to look a bit samey. Oh really, you’re excited for Star Wars Episode 7? Well of course you are, it’s Star Wars Episode 7. Saying you’re excited to see it is like saying you enjoy oxygen or puppydog kisses.
Most of the most anticipated movies of the year, quite frankly, don’t need any more hype than they already have. »

The Iraq War saga “American Sniper” soared like a superhero movie at the box office, with a $64.3 million second weekend in wide release that would make any caped crusader proud.
The Clint Eastwood-directed telling of the tough return home by Navy Seal Chris Kyle, played in the movie by Bradley Cooper, continued its electrifying run with the best second weekend ever by an R-rated movie. In the process, “American Sniper” hit the $200 million mark in domestic grosses just 10 days after earning nominations for Best Picture, »

Depp’s latest exercise in cinematic oddities, “Mortdecai,” left audiences cold, earning a paltry $4.1 million across 2,648 locations and coming in ninth on box office charts. It’s an embarrassing performance for a star of his caliber and comes on the heels of box office disasters such as “The Lone Ranger” and “Transcendence.”
“Something needs to click soon,” said Phil Contrino, vice president and chief analyst at BoxOffice.com. “It’s a couple of misses in a row and that always stings.”
“Mortdecai” cost $60 million to make and was backed by OddLot Entertainment and released by Lionsgate. It had been expected to gross in the neighborhood of $10 million.
Much of the Sunday afternoon box office quarterbacking will center on Depp’s deflating career, but “American Sniper’s” endurance was the true stunner. »

Starting April 1, DC Comics is launching its new meta-Crisis series, Convergence, in which characters from different planets and timelines will be thrust together on the Blood Moon to fight fight fight. In May, all of Marvel’s multiverse will go blooey with bits and pieces being recombined into a single place called Secret Wars: Battleworld and, no doubt, every one will fight fight fight. Worlds/characters will live, worlds/characters will die, and nothing will ever be the same yet again.
It’s the same concept as DC’s Crisis on Infinite Earths back in 1985 (and Convergence, at least in part, is a thirty year Anniversary celebration of that event). For you young’uns who weren’t around, Coie was a 12 issue maxi-series with a very real purpose – to modernize and re-boot the DC Universe and continuity.
To be honest, I think that’s a necessity every so often for every continuity. »

We’ve heard reports that Gareth Edwards’ upcoming standalone Star Wars movie would feature Boba Fett, and we’ve heard reports it would feature Han Solo. So what’s the next logical step? That it will feature Boba Fett and Han Solo? Yep, you guessed it…
It looks like Latino-Review is covering both bases by reporting that the fan-favourite bounty hunter and intergalactic soundrel will both feature in the movie, and that a young Han will somehow end up involved with the bounty hunters hired to steal the plans to the Death Star. The rest of their report reads like pure speculation, so we should probably file this one firmly in the back of the rumour cabinet for the time being.
The first standalone Star Wars movie is set for release in 2016, with Gareth Edwards (Godzilla) directing. Gary Whitta (After Earth) penned the original script, which Simon Kinberg (X-Men: Days of Future Past »

As I said in my review of AMC’s “Better Call Saul!” I approached the “Breaking Bad” prequel with some skepticism about whether it could work, before ultimately being pleased with the first three episodes. Two other men who had deep and long-lasting concerns about the viability of the project? That would be “Breaking Bad” creator Vince Gilligan and producer Peter Gould, who wrote the episode that introduced Bob Odenkirk as Saul Goodman. As the two men discuss in this interview I did at press tour, a Saul spin-off was something they had been talking about — half in jest, half not — going back to “Breaking Bad” season 3, but the actual show went through many iterations before it evolved into its current form as a light-hearted drama series dealing with a younger Saul (or Jimmy McGill, as he went by back then) trying to establish himself as a defense lawyer in Albuquerque. »

At various points, every character from Jabba the Hutt to Yoda to Jar Jar Binks (okay, maybe not the last guy) has been mentioned as the possible focus of one of the planned Star Wars spin-offs in the works at Lucasfilm/Disney -- but the prevailing rumor about the plot of Gareth Edwards' first standalone flick was that it would tell the tale of Boba Fett and his gang trying to retrieve plans for the first Death Star. Now, Latino Review claim to have some new information that puts Han Solo and his iconic ship, the Millennium Falcon, right there along with the enigmatic bounty hunter and his pals. This does make sense, as we've been hearing conflicting reports on which of the two classic characters this first spin-off would be about, and that might simply be because they'll both be involved. In the original trilogy it was definitely »
With the distraction of January now almost out of the way and the traditional dump month releases about to be washed out of memory by the excitement of the Oscars, it won’t be long before the real business of 2015’s tentpole releases kicks off. And as years go, the next twelve months has the potential to be one of the best in recent memory, provided the promise of the likes of Star Wars, Marvel’s slate and the new Bond are all realised. For some, that is a big ask.
Taken 3 might already have taken a preposterous $180m worldwide, but the first big release won’t hot cinemas until March (unless you count Fifty Shades Of Grey or Jupiter Ascending, which frankly you probably shouldn’t for various reasons). In honesty, it’s hard to look at the next twelve months and identify a traditionally “quiet” month; blockbusters »

Following the news earlier this week about at least four actresses testing for the female lead in Gareth Edwards' untitled "Star Wars" spin-off film, more rumors have surfaced revealing further potential details about the story.
Possible Major Spoilers Ahead
First up, Latino Review reports that according to their sources, both Boba Fett and Han Solo will be featured in this untitled spinoff. Said film will Not revolve around stealing the plans for the first Death Star as had been previously indicated, but rather is reportedly set before that adventure.
They say the story will deal with the relationships between Han, Boba and other criminals - specifically The Hutts. Said spin-off could also be used to "kick off a new series of Star Wars movies."
Elsewhere, Making Star Wars reports that the film will be shot in Mexico, and that "bounty hunters are important to the film." Crew members are »

“American Sniper” intensified its stunning and record-breaking box-office barrage with another $18.3 million on Friday. The tale of a top U.S. marksman coming home a changed man again blew past analysts’ projections and is heading for a three-day haul of more than $60 million, which would be easily the best second weekend in January ever.

Last week, we shared a very impressive Star Wars/Age Of Ultron trailer from YouTube editor, The Unusual Suspect. It seems he's been up to his old tricks again, delivering another entertaining little mash-up. This time, he turns his focus on Joss Whedon's original Avengers movie and Zack Snyder's Watchmen. The video features footage from Marvel's 2012's smash hit, re-cut in the style of Snyder's epic trailer - arguably one of the best Cbm teasers of all time. Check it out below: Perhaps what's most impressive here is the way he manages to seemlessly blend together two movies with such contrasting tones. It's also always great to hear that Smashing Pumpkins theme again. The Unusual Suspect has been making waves for some time now. If you haven't already, I'd recommend you check out some of his other works over on his channel. What did you guys think? Are »
