‘Saturday Night Live’ Review: Chance The Rapper Charms His Way Through The Season’s Best

‘Saturday Night Live’ Review: Chance The Rapper Charms His Way Through The Season’s Best
The biggest shock to come from this week’s episode of “Saturday Night Live” is that Chance The Rapper can apparently exist without his signature hat. He might even thrive without it, which is a fascinating reality to accept. The point is, with or without the hat, Chance The Rapper hosts the best episode of this season so far, the first one to maintain a consistently good quality from top to bottom as well as successfully use the host to their strengths. In fact, Chance The Rapper showed signs in this episode of being the next Justin Timberlake for “Saturday Night Live” in terms of his versatility, gameness, and general sense of humor as a host.

The second biggest shock is that, despite the opening monologue, the “Family Feud” sketch, and some Weekend Update, this year’s Thanksgiving episode is not tied down to the concept of being a Thanksgiving episode.

‘Saturday Night Live’ Review: Yet Again, Larry David Makes For a Pretty, Pretty Good Host
Saturday Night Live” and actual comedians often go together like chocolate and peanut butter (two things which the candy industry often says go together). This was, of course, a talking point for the last new episode of this season, the Kumail Nanjiani episode, and now it’s the case for L-Vid himself, Larry David.

Host: Larry David

“You tolerate me. You really, really tolerate me.”

Those are Larry David’s opening remarks in his monologue, and it’s almost all surprisingly uphill (with a major bump, in the form of a Holocaust joke) from there. “Surprisingly,” because this season’s start has boasted relatively solid monologues so far, only for the main show to end up uneven, unfortunately not always playing to the strengths of its hosts.

Four Mother-Daughter Movies Could Dominate Awards Season

Four Mother-Daughter Movies Could Dominate Awards Season
Mother-daughter relationships have always been the stuff of great drama. And the Oscars are no exception. Three decades ago the “Moonstruck” acting duo Olympia Dukakis and Cher both won gold for playing a strong-willed New York Italian mother and her feisty daughter. Six years later, as a mute Scottish teacher and her de facto interpreter in New Zealand, Holly Hunter and Anna Paquin repeated that twofer triumph with Jane Campion’s “The Piano.”

Onscreen mother-daughter conflict has resulted in other dual Academy Award nominations: selfless Barbara Stanwyck tricked Anne Shirley into marrying rich in tearjerker “Stella Dallas” (1937); Meryl Streep’s big mouth inspired a rebellious Julia Roberts in “August: Osage County” (2013); Piper Laurie was literally crucified by Sissy Spacek in “Carrie” (1976). At the start of this decade, Mo’Nique won an Oscar portraying the sexually abusive parent of fellow “Precious” nominee Gabourey Sidibe. Back in 1984, both Shirley MacLaine and

Lili Reinhart Gets Candid About Battling Anxiety Before Landing Riverdale: 'My World Was Crashing'
Before Lili Reinhart found fame playing the near-perfect blonde schoolgirl Betty Copper on the CW’s hit TV show Riverdale, she was a budding actress suffering from crippling anxiety — including what she calls “the worst panic attack of my life.”

The 20-year-old actress opened up about her battle with the disorder in a new interview with W magazine, where she explained that she had to flee Los Angeles and move back in with her parents in North Carolina to get a handle on her mental health.

Living in L.A. in shared apartments at just 18, Reinhart was auditioning as much as possible at the time.

Tori Kelly is going country. 

The 24-year-old singer is teaming up with Chris Lane for his next single, "Take Back Home Girl," a soulful ode to those girls you can bring home to mom. The song will be featured on Lane's next album. 

"I've been a big fan of Tori's for quite some time and I had this song that I was looking for a duet with," Lane tells Et exclusively. "They asked me, 'Who's your dream collaboration partner?' and she was the first person I said." 

"I got a random text message from my manager sending me the song and he was like, 'Do you like it?' and I was like, 'I actually am obsessed with it,'" Kelly says. "He didn't even tell me the artist or anything and we were like, 'Cool! Let's do it.'"

Exclusive: Genevieve Gorder Admits 'There Were a Lot of Tears' Reuniting With 'Trading Spaces' Designers

Exclusive: Genevieve Gorder Admits 'There Were a Lot of Tears' Reuniting With 'Trading Spaces' Designers
Genevieve Gorder, beloved for both her innovative design as well as her quirky personality (and habit of working barefoot), became a hero to families across America as she redesigned their homes with TLC's Trading Spaces in the early 2000s. Fans couldn't have been happier when it was announced that Gorder would be returning to the series in 2018 after its 10-year hiatus, but a lot has changed for the designer since she's been on the show. 

"[My reaction] was mixed when I first heard the news," Gorder told Et over the phone last week, explaining that Trading Spaces' original run "felt so perfect and compartmentalized in my mind." 

"It was the first transformation design show in our country. I was scared that any kind of reinterpretation, if it wasn't completely authentic, could tarnish the guilt on that perfect thing in my memory," she said. "But when I heard that they were going to bring back everyone else, all of us, and

Exclusive: Jill Soloway and Alexandra Billings Discuss How Far-ish Transgender Storytelling Has Come

Exclusive: Jill Soloway and Alexandra Billings Discuss How Far-ish Transgender Storytelling Has Come
In its fourth season, Transparent delves into more of the Pfefferman family ancestry and anxiety -- if the latter were possible. As the crew travels to Israel so Maura can attend a conference, the Holy Land serves as a place for revelations and realizations for everyone. Back home in California, Davina’s origin story becomes clearer as she struggles with her own illness and her place in life and stars in the first nude scene of a transperson on television.

“First, television has never seen a trans person, certainly with the age I am and with the body that I have, naked on television,” says Alexandra Billings, who plays Davina. “There is a care that Jill and the writers took -- it wasn’t about fetishizing or sexualizing, and it wasn’t desexualized. It was simple, plain conversation.”

Soloway, who identifies as nonbinary and uses the pronoun “they,” began Transparent pulling from their own experiences with their

Toronto Film Review: ‘Unicorn Store’

Toronto Film Review: ‘Unicorn Store’
Recent years have seen blockbusters made about pirates and wizards and zombies and superheroes, but you have to go all the way back to Ridley Scott’s “Legend” (1985), or else Rankin/Bass’ animated “The Last Unicorn” (1982), to find a proper movie made about unicorns. It’s a colossal oversight on Hollywood’s part: For all the girls (and boys) who grew up dreaming about those fabled beasts, there exists a unicorn-shaped hole in the cinematic universe today, and it’s long been my belief that the first filmmaker to come along and fill it was going to become very, very rich.

Brie Larson’s “Unicorn Store” is not that movie. Yes, it’s about unicorns, but only obliquely. Mostly, it’s about a unicorn-obsessed young art student named Kit (Larson) who needs some sort of life lesson (although what it was exactly remains maddeningly unclear at the end). In order for this pixie-dusted contemporary fable to make

‘The Rider’: Chloé Zhao’s Moving Cannes Winner Goes On a Journey in New Clip — Watch
After picking up the Art Cinema Award at this year’s Cannes Director’s Fortnight — the highest honor the lauded sidebar bestows on its always-compelling selection — Chloé Zhao’s “The Rider” is setting off on a high-powered fall festival tour, including stops at both Tiff and Nyff. Based on our newest look at the moving and elegiac story, which draws on the real experiences of leading man Brady Jandreau, Zhao has a major contender on her hands.

The film, Zhao’s follow-up to her “Songs My Brothers Taught Me,” bowed at the festival back in May, but has continued to spin very positive buzz. Stops at Toronto and New York should only continue to bolster the gorgeous, personal film.

The Law and Jake Wade

Many of MGM’s productions were scraping bottom in 1958, yet the studio found one more acceptable western vehicle for their last big star still on contract.

Nashville Priest Teaches Syrian Refugees to Transform Life Vests Into Welcome Mats: 'They’re a Powerful Symbol'

Beside glorious vineyards and lush countryside on the Greek island of Evia, a barbed wire fence encircles a dusty, barren former military encampment where 1,000 Syrian refugees are housed in metal containers. People walk slowly at the Ritsona camp, with few places to go, and hopelessness fills the air as no one knows when or if they can go home or be permanently resettled. Yet nine women have set to work on two looms, weaving mats with red, black, silver, orange and lime green threads. Not really threads. Cloth from life jackets worn by refugees as they fled Syria. And they are not just mats.

Exclusive: Horror Director David F. Sandberg Addresses His Involvement With Shazam!

The comic book movie universe is definitely not the same as the horror movie universe.

Director David F. Sandberg is quickly learning that lesson.

During San Diego Comic-Con International last month, Annabelle: Creation director revealed to the world that he will be directing comic superhero movie Shazam as his next project. It will be his third feature film after his highly successful horror film Lights Out and Warner Brothers’ full faith in horror prequel Annabelle: Creation this Friday.

As Sandberg is going through the rounds of press interviews for Annabelle: Creation, he is being bombarded with questions concerning Shazam, in which he cannot reveal anything due to comic book movie secrecy and it’s too early in production.

He explained that New Line Cinema is very confident
