The X Factor 2014 final: Ben Haenow wins – as it happened

14 December 2014 1:59 PM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Ben Haenow and Fleur East battled it out to become X Factor champion 2014, but who would win? Stuart Heritage was there for the final

9.59pm GMT

It’s all over! X Factor 2014 has reached its glorious conclusion. Ladies and gentlemen, we have discovered a new star. But enough about Stevi Ritchie, because Ben probably deserves some of your praise too.

Hand on heart, I can’t thank any of you enough for reading and commenting along in these liveblogs. This has been one of my favourite years to liveblog X Factor, and that’s largely down to how game and hilarious (and drunk) you’ve been throughout. Honestly, I couldn’t have done this without you. I have no idea what I’ll liveblog next (please god don’t let it be Stars in their Eyes), but I hope you can join me then too. Now that we’re all such good friends, »

Vicki Michelle was the fourth celebrity to be evicted from the jungle on Thursday night's episode of I'm a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!. The comedy actress, who leaped into the spotlight as Yvette Carte-Blanche in the iconic 1980s comedy 'Allo 'Allo, faced her fears alongside the likes Edwina Currie and Kendra Wilkinson in the jungle reality show. Here are her jungle highlights…

How are you feeling, Vicki?

"I will never forget my jungle experience, but it feels fabulous to be out in the real world. It was much harder than I thought it would be - but in a weird, sadistic, masochistic way it was fun. We were living in a rainforest. I woke up every morning thinking, 'I'm living a life that I'd never have at home'."

How would you sum up your jungle experience?

An Intimate Conversation With Mike Nichols

20 November 2014 2:52 PM, PST | EW - Inside Movies | See recent - Inside Movies news »

Two years ago, on the eve of his eagerly awaited Broadway revival of Death of a Salesman, I sat down with Mike Nichols to look back on his remarkable career. During those two-plus hours together at the Mark Hotel in Manhattan, the legendary director, then 80, reminisced about a life of highs and lows that began as a bright-eyed young boy who fled Nazi Germany for America. "I remember everything about getting on the boat in Germany in 1939," Nichols said. "I was 7, my brother was 3, and my father was already in New York setting up his practice as a doctor. German Jews couldn't leave the country, »

Mike Nichols, ‘Graduate’ Director, Dead At 83

20 November 2014 4:15 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Mike Nichols, the award-winning director of Broadway and movies, died Wednesday in Manhattan at the age of 83. Nichols was the husband of ABC News anchor Diane Sawyer. A spokesman for ABC said the cause was cardiac arrest.

Photos: Mike Nichols’ Life and Career in Photos

Nichols is one of few people to win an Emmy, a Grammy, an Oscar and a Tony — achieving so-called Egot status. His first two feature helming efforts — the caustic “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf” in 1966 and 1967’s satirical “The Graduate” — launched a prodigious movie career. But before ever stepping behind the camera, he was already part of a successful comedy duo with Elaine May and had helmed a string of hit stage shows.

Nichols’ background in improvisational, satirical comedy informed many of his films, which often started out as comedies and ended up as acerbic ruminations on American relationships. Directing material by playwrights, screenwriters »

Birds of a Feather: Camargo’s Debut a Tepid Chekhovian Transplant

Contemporizing classic literature can be a tricky feat, though it more often than not seems unjustified. Actor Christian Camargo has reworked Anton Chekov’s classic play The Seagull for his directorial debut, Days and Nights, curiously setting the Russian tragedy in 1984 New England. With an extremely lucrative cast at hand, Camargo’s fiddling around with the text isn’t completely bereft of ingenious new ways to converse with Chekov’s classic, though more often than not, this is simply another tedious glimpse of familial dysfunction, relocated to the heart of a Wasp’s nest. While it isn’t necessary to be familiar with the material Camargo is in correspondence with, one’s awareness of it may impede rather than enhance this film, which often feels strained or confused upon comparison.

Movie Poster of the Week: “Le Dos au Mur” and some lesser-known French paper

31 August 2014 5:18 AM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

In the world of movie poster collecting, title trumps everything. A mediocre half-sheet for Casablanca or a lobby card for The Wizard of Oz will sell for thousands whereas an exquisite piece of graphic design for an obscure Czech drama can be picked up for peanuts. For good reason of course: people want movie posters to remind them of the movies they love. But I am always endlessly impressed by the bottomless well of superb design and illustration that is out there for films that have been all but forgotten. As a random example, this week the French poster dealer Dominique Besson released 171 posters for auction on eBay, and, though many of them are for well-known films I was struck by the fact that many of the most eye-catching designs were for quite obscure French films from the 40s and 50s. And all can be picked up for a song. »

All the Robin Williams Films You Need To Watch on Netflix Now

22 August 2014 5:00 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

Monday’s Emmy Awards will feature a fitting tribute to the late Robin Williams, led by Billy Crystal. The beloved actor died earlier this month, but fans still can’t believe he’s gone. Ahead of Hollywood’s honor to the comedic genius, brush up on his noteworthy roles with our guide to his best films currently streaming on Netflix.

The Big Wedding (2013)

Williams isn’t the star in this film, but his role as a lovable priest offsets the other characters’ hilarious drama. A family pretends to get along as the wedding of their adopted son and sibling approaches. The star-studded cast includes Robert DeNiro and Diane Keaton.

The Birdcage (1996)

Similar to The Big Wedding, The Birdcage centers on family. However, the latter flick was also ahead of its time, transcending fans’ perception of homosexual couples at the time. Based on the play La Cage aux Folles, Williams plays »

Robin Williams: A Huge Funny/Dramatic Talent Who Proved He Could Do It All — An Appreciation

11 August 2014 6:54 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

I didn’t see Robin Williams‘ attempt at a new sitcom, CBS’ The Crazy Ones. I didn’t want to. I didn’t want to think that the great Robin was, at only 62, already making the trip back to weekly TV half-hours after such a stellar, Oscar-winning career in films and such a bright, unhinged light on comedy stages for all of his career. It’s just too constricting for this kind of talent. It’s even sadder to think the show got cancelled after one season, a failure that must have been hard to take. No, my most recent memories of Robin Williams are on the big screen, where he seemed to be heading for a place of renewal, not only as the funnyman everyone knew, but really a fine dramatic actor. In this year’s The Face Of Love he played a supporting role as a man heartbreakingly »
