To celebrate Mother's Day we're taking a look at our 5 favourite mother/daughter acting duos who've made a name for themselves in Hollywood.
Not only are these two mother and daughter but they've had some of the most iconic female roles in horror movie history. Janet Leigh was a bonafide scream queen from the late 1950's up until the early 1980's. She starred in Touch of Evil, The Fog, and of course Psycho for which she received an Oscar nomination. Jamie Lee Curtis first gained mainstream attention with her portrayal of Laurie in John Carpenter's Halloween which sparked a multi-decade franchise. She has since solidified herself among Hollywood greats with Freaky Friday, True Lies, and A Fish Called Wanda.
Here's another pairing with »

It was the jump that did it.
You know the one. It happens roughly a third of the way in to Fast & Furious 6. We're already deep into a chase scene, one involving a mustache-twirling British bad guy, Michelle Rodriguez's back-from-the-dead female badass Letty (she was never really dead, just had amnesia, but never mind that), Vin Diesel's Dom Toretto, his crew, a load of cars and, of course, a tank. As this high-pursuit cat-and-mouse game whizzes down the road, Dom and the tank find themselves on parallel »
It's an incredible true story, how a Polish couple sheltered Jews during WWII in their abandoned zoo in Warsaw. What a shame then, that in adapting the book by Diane Ackerman, screenwriter Angela Workman lets the dialogue run to the blandest of bromides. It's fortunate that the stellar director Niki Caro (Whale Rider) rarely lets the action go slack, using striking visuals that express so much more than the clunky verbiage. And in Jessica Chastain, Caro finds an actress ready to use everything she's got to bring the title role to life. »
Last time on NCIS, Bishop avenged her boyfriend Qasim's death by offering terrorist Chen a "Sophie's Choice" of blowing himself up with one of his own insidious devices or be captured by an angry warlord. Yes, Chen blew himself to bits. I wonder how this will affect Bishop going forward?
In this episode of NCIS, titled "What Lies Above," McGee finds his apartment, which was originally Tony's apartment, being ransacked by a burglar. McGee may have some explaining to do to Delilah, who is blissfully unaware of this apartment's shady and bloody past. Yikes!
Jimmy Kimmel seems like he was practically made in a factory to be the ideal Oscars host. For his first time hosting the big show, he did an excellent job. His opening monologue targeted Matt Damon (of course), Mel Gibson, and pretty much everyone sitting in the front row. Throughout the show, he made fun of almost all the nominees and eventually brought it back to Matt Damon. Here are his best one-liners of the night! "I really hope the other guys from *Nsync were watching that performance because if they were, I think there's a really good chance they're going to let you back in the band." - After Justin Timberlake's performance "There's only one Braveheart in this room, and he's not gonna unite us either. You look great, I think the Scientology is working." - To Mel Gibson "He handed that part to his friend and took a Chinese ponytail movie. »

With the Oscars coming up on Sunday, Et is looking back at some of the proud mamas who have rocked baby bumps at Hollywood's biggest awards show.
Portman was pregnant with her first child, son Aleph, when she won the Best Actress award for Black Swan in 2011. This year, she could win her second Oscar while pregnant with baby No. 2.
The Scandal star glowed as she made her way down the red carpet at the 2014 Oscars, cradling the baby bump from her first child, Isabelle.
"Beware of the pregnant woman about to give birth," the actress quipped to Et from the 2008 Oscars red carpet, as she was expecting baby No. 3.
Streep was nominated for her fourth Academy Award and expecting her second »
The 2017 Oscar Nominees: Everything you need to know about the Best Actress race The 2017 Oscar Nominees: Everything you need to know about the Best Actress race Adriana Floridia2/10/2017 11:36:00 Am
This year's Best Actress race is extremely competitive.
Some of our favourite performances couldn't secure the nomination, and it was simply because there were so many incredible female performances. We're sad that names like Annette Bening for 20th Century Women, Amy Adams for Arrival and Hailee Steinfeld for The Edge of Seventeen weren't among the nominees, but we also love the five nominated performances so much. Seriously, it was just a great year for women acting in film, and with the talent out there today, it's always going to be hard, and therefore even more of an honour, to land that Oscar nomination.
Though there's five women in the running here, the race has been pretty much narrowed down to two major threats. »

Stephen Colbert has had it with Donald Trump. On Monday, the late-night host used his monologue to respond to the president-elect's recent comments about nine-time Golden Globe winner Meryl Streep. Following Meryl's passionate speech at the ceremony, Trump went on a Twitter rant and called her "one of the most over-rated actresses." This, of course, did not sit well with Stephen, who blasted Trump on his show, saying, "Wait a second, I'm sorry, what? Meryl Streep, overrated? Have you seen Sophie's Choice? Have you seen The French Lieutenant's Woman?" Stephen then shouted, "No! Too far!" Watch the entire thing go down above.

Meryl Streep may reign over the Oscars, but her real kingdom is the Golden Globes.
Her nomination for Florence Foster Jenkins this year -- as Best Actress in a Comedy or Musical -- marks her 30th in 38 years. She will also receive the Cecil B. DeMille Award, the first person to get that honor in the same year as a nomination in over two decades. (Sophia Loren managed it in 1995.)
