The Hype Cycle: Oscar Nominations One Week Removed

23 January 2015 6:32 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

One week removed from the Oscar nominations, we’re still recovering from #OscarsSoWhite-gate, and the consensus seems to be that if only the Legos were white instead of yellow they would’ve been nominated after all.

But really the conversation has started to move toward Hollywood rather than the Oscars, and how as a whole institution we can’t seem to find enough strong roles for women or blacks or other racial groups. The Oscars have a long history of snubbing deserving black people (just ask Spike Lee), so as Larry Wilmore said on his first broadcast of The Nightly Show, this isn’t really anything new.

What we do have is a not too bad list of nominees in a race that even at this late stage in the game is up for grabs. It’s a bit early to make final predictions, but we’ll start to know »

21 January 2015 5:04 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Lindsay Lohan has reportedly been treated in a London hospital for a rare mosquito-borne virus.

Lohan contracted chikungunya, a rare incurable virus that causes fever, joint pain and fatigue, while vacationing in Bora Bora over the holidays.

News: Lindsay Lohan Might Be a Spokeswoman for Car Insurance, Which Is the Most Ironic Thing Ever

She posted Instagram photos from her trip, seemingly in good spirits despite her illness.

"In good faith with good people." Lohan wrote. "I refuse to let a virus effect [sic] my peaceful vacation."

Lohan also thanked Oprah for her concerned call in another Instagram photo.

Lohan returned to Los Angeles after her vacation, reportedly to shoot her Esurance Super Bowl commercial, before traveling to London, where she was hospitalized with a high fever and joint pain.

Sources say Lohan has since been released from hospital care, but her joint pain could last up to several months.

‘The Megyn Kelly Moment’ Gets Spotlight in Revealing NY Times Profile

21 January 2015 11:23 AM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

The Fox News primetime anchor’s approach and knack for grilling guests has driven “the Kelly craze,” says the Times

In a profile piece on Wednesday, The New York Times spotlights the rise of Fox NewsMegyn Kelly.

“For those unfamiliar with the phenomenon, a Megyn moment, as I have taken to calling it, is when you, a Fox guest — maybe a regular guest or even an official contributor — are pursuing a line of argument that seems perfectly congruent with the Fox worldview, only to have Kelly seize on some part of it and call it out as nonsense, maybe »

Review: 'Parks and Recreation' - 'William Henry Harrison/Leslie & Ron'

20 January 2015 6:00 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A review of tonight's two "Parks and Recreation" episodes coming up just as soon as we binge watch the future... When NBC announced the plan to double-pump these remaining episodes, in an attempt to get the show off its schedule as quickly as possible(*), many of you were irked by it. And while I'd like to stretch out the experience of watching "Parks and Rec" for as long as possible, the scheduling has worked out really well for these first two weeks. "2017" and "Ron and Jammy" made a good pairing — the first with a lot of exposition about the time jump, the second a throwback episode providing a last hurrah for one of the show's best villains in Tammy 2. "William Henry Harrison," of course, ends with a cliffhanger, and the scheduling allows us to see it paid off right away in "Leslie and Ron." (*) Ironically, the premiere ratings were much »

Oprah, 'Selma' Cast Honor Mlk With March in Alabama

19 January 2015 6:15 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Et was in Selma, Ala. nearly 50 years after Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s historic march, where Oprah Winfrey and the Selma cast led thousands in an emotional event that recreated Dr. King's march.

News: 21 of Martin Luther King, Jr.'s Most Powerful Quotes

"What we feel is we want this to be more than just cameras and spectacle," Oprah told Et's Nischelle Turner. "That you are actually walking in the footsteps of people who have come before you -- people who did this in the sense of great courage and pride."

Selma follows a crucial time in Mlk's life when black marchers attempted to walk from Selma to Montgomery, Ala. in order to obtain voting rights in 1965. Oprah's The Butler co-star David Oyelowo stars as Mlk in the film and he chimed in, putting their demonstration in perspective.

19 January 2015 5:58 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Et's Nischelle Turner shared an emotional video diary of her time with the cast of Selma over the weekend.

Nischelle marched alongside the cast and thousands of others in Selma, Ala. to honor Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., where John Legend and Common performed their Oscar-nominated song "Glory."

"It's about the movement and it's about the people," John told Nischelle. "It's about knowing what happened before and using that as inspiration."

"It's people like Dr. King and leaders who we now get to study to know that these are some of the ways that you change things," Common said.

John and Common's sentiments seemed to echo the majority of those involved. For Nischelle, this was more than just an assignment.

"I'm just honored to be an American No. 1," Nischelle said. "And an African-American No. 2, who is saying 'thank you.' "

David Oyelowo Was Robbed of a Nomination (Guest Blog)

19 January 2015 2:41 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

The Oscar snubs of the “Selma” star and director Ava DuVernay sparked a Hollywood racial diversity debate

Monday is our nation’s commemoration of Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday. As we contemplate the life and sacrifice of our nation’s great civil rights leader, some of us are also bemoaning the fact that Oscar voters did not nominate David Oyelowo for his sensitive and moving portrayal of Dr. King in “Selma.” Ironically non-Americans, the members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association who vote for the Golden Globes, recognized the power of Oyelowo’s performance and nominated him.

21 of Martin Luther King, Jr.’s Most Powerful Quotes

19 January 2015 11:31 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Today, the third Monday of the new year, marks Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, a day to celebrate the civil rights activist, humanitarian, and revolutionist. With the tragedies of Trayvon Martin, Eric Garner, and Michael Brown so fresh in our collective conscious, today feels extra poignant. Even in Hollywood, the inexcusable snub of important directors of color like Selma’s Ava DuVernay — not to mention the overall lack of diversity in this year’s #OscarsSoWhite — shows that we have more work to do than we’d like to admit.

So today, especially, it’s important to remember the wise words of Mlk:

19 January 2015 9:56 AM, PST | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Controversy From SAG To The Academy As Issue Turns To Diversity: Is It Fair? – Oscar Watch

18 January 2015 1:21 PM, PST | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

One week from today, the #allwhite SAG movie awards will take place at the Shrine. For the film categories that will appear on the Jan. 25 telecast, the actors union managed to nominate not a single black actor in any of its four film acting categories. SAG also didn’t nominate any black performers among the 42 additional actors named as part of its Outstanding Performance By A Cast In A Motion Picture (nominees are Birdman, Boyhood, The Grand Budapest Hotel, The Imitation Game and The Theory Of Everything).

So that’s a total of 62 performances nominated, all of them white, with the closest thing to any level of diversity being Grand Budapest Hotel co-star and Cast nominee Tony Revolori, a Southern Californian of Guatemalan descent.

Yet did SAG, a union run by white actor Ken Howard, get anywhere near the level of flak and criticism and outrage the Academy of Motion »

David Oyelowo on Oscars' Lack of Diversity: 'We’re Just Going to Keep Plugging Away'

15 January 2015 10:47 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Despite his Oscar snub, Selma star David Oyelowo was nothing but positive at Thursday's Critics' Choice Awards.

"These things happen," Oyelowo, who portrays civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr. in the historical drama about the 1965 voting rights marches in Alabama, told Et’s Brooke Anderson. "The prize for me is that this film is resonating so beautifully with audiences."

Et caught up with Oyelowo on the red carpet, where the British actor was effusive about the film's nomination for Best Picture as well as Common and John Legend’s nom for the song "Glory."

"People have asked me time and again, why has it taken so for a film about Dr. King to get made," Oyelowo told Et. "We live in an imperfect world, so we tried to make it a little bit more perfect by getting that film done."

Did Academy Award Nominations Deserve #WhiteOscars Outrage?

15 January 2015 5:56 PM, PST | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Twitter erupted in hashtag outrage today over the overwhelming whiteness of 2015’s Academy Award nominations. But should that have been a surprise? Yes, last year’s trophy show was a triumph for 12 Years A Slave, the first Best Picture winner directed by a black filmmaker, as well as a landmark win for Best Supporting Actress Lupita Nyong’o. But the Oscars, like the film industry itself, always have been a predominantly white (and male) concern, in stark contrast to the diversity of the moviegoing public.

With Monday’s Martin Luther King Jr. Day holiday looming — today is his actual birthday — the #WhiteOscars and #OscarsSoWhite hashtags ranged from irate to hilariously on point over the fact that only one minority filmmaker (Birdman‘s Alejandro González Iñárritu) and zero women were nominated this year in the writing and directing categories.

The backlash was only so loud because hopes were so high for Selma going into nominations morning. »

Kevin Hart on the time Oprah imprisoned him in his own house

14 January 2015 11:13 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Kevin Hart and Josh Gad, costars of the new comedy "The Wedding Ringer," have very famous pasts in live performance. Hart is arguably the most popular standup comedian on the planet, and Gad earned a Tony nomination for his starring performance in the original Broadway production of "Book of Mormon."  We interviewed both actors about the biggest stars they ever saw attend one of their shows. Gad reflected on times when both Oprah Winfrey and Barbra Streisand sat in the front row of "Book of Mormon." "You sort of freeze when you first walk out, especially with 'Book of Mormon' in the Eugene O'Neill Theater. You can see everyone in the audience, pretty much," he told us. "With Barbra Streisand, there were two or three times where I sort of fell apart and forgot my lines." Hart, meanwhile, says his best sighting was Shavar Ross, a.k.a. Dudley from »

The Golden Gyllenhaals. And Final Best Actor Predictions

13 January 2015 2:17 PM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

In the cascade of perfect smiles, smh laughter at outre jokes, and general 'oh god the camera is on me now and I don't have a script' that is awards show reaction shows you may have missed the Jake Gyllenhaal and Maggie Gyllenhaal had pride of place at Sunday's Golden Globe ceremony, and received the very first reaction shot as Tina & Amy entered to host, their joke quote, "the 72nd and final Golden Globe Awards". The very first reaction shot. Even Oprah had to settle for second billing.

They started the festivities with family nostalgia listening to "Graceland" in the limo (as they said on the red carpet), Maggie won for Best Actress in a Television Movie or Miniseries for The Honourable Woman, Jake was a very proud sibling and a nominee, and Jake's current Broadway co-star Ruth Wilson ("Constellations") was also »

Top Five Golden Globes Speeches

13 January 2015 9:30 AM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Margaret with more on Sunday's Golden Globes...

Awards show speeches are weird and wonderful things. They’re awkward and rushed, they hold the weight of hundreds of peoples’ expectations, and they are bound to disappoint or offend somebody no matter what they contain.

Since the Golden Globes are the first big ceremony of awards season (People's Choice A-whats? Haven't heard of 'em), the winners have their work cut out for them to be memorable and charming and humble enough to make their new statuette the first of many.

Below we have a roundup of my picks for best movie-category speeches of the night, plus some speculation about whether they might influence the Oscar race. (For wins, not nominations, since the voting is closed and they're now set in stone.)

Honorable mention goes to Just-Keep-Simmons for his amusingly gruff speech ("I think I only have 45 seconds, so shut up").
