It's the most insane road trip since "Thelma and Louise" ... Rob Kardashian drove 1,377 miles -- from L.A. to Austin -- to personally extricate freshly freed girlfriend Blac Chyna from the Lone Star state. We didn't believe it at first, when we saw a pic Saturday of Chyna standing by a Bentley with a Bentley Beverly Hills license plate frame. The stores behind match up -- it was taken in Texas. Now our Kardashian sources »

Films have long been able to give us a glimpse into another life. One that only movie stars can access but, deep down, we all secretly wish that one day we too will be able to live out.
There are literally hundreds of driving films – some that will stay in your mind forever and some that should be consigned to the bargain bucket, never to be seen again. To make a great driving film – the sort to inspire you to want to learn to drive yourself – you need to have serious gear-heads on board, classic motors, fast cars, car chases and a spectacular storyline.
Here, we sort through the movies to remember and those better off forgotten.

So, the long-awaited list is finally out, and it reads more like a luck-of-the-draw hand this year, particularly for some. Some very notable and highly conspicuous misses this year, that shouldn’t have been misses at all, and not in a way folks might be ruing over lost chances with the recent Powerball jackpot. Quite predictably, the reactions keep pouring in, sound and fury and all.
Here’s our top 5 upsets this Oscar season, and that’s even before Leo gets the snub all over again (we hope not, though!)
The Martian did pick up nominations for a number of categories including Best Picture and Actor in a Leading Role, but somehow failed to make the cut for the Best Director nomination! That’s one really hard-to-explain glitch in the system, coming on the back of the fact that Scott has also never won despite the critical and popular success of his films. »

After some shocking oversights with last weekend's Golden Globes contenders and some surprising nods from the Screen Actors Guild, the big day has arrived: the Academy Award nominations are in! As usual, some of the year's frontrunners and favorites of critics and moviegoers alike didn't wake up to congratulatory messages. Most notably, no actors of color were tapped in the individual acting categories - the second year in a row. From Johnny Depp to Straight Outta Compton, here's who and what was left out in the cold for the Oscars, which airs on Feb. 28. Jacob Tremblay for Best Supporting ActorThe »

The Directors Guild of America has announced the nominees for the 68th annual DGA Awards! Missing were Todd Haynes ("Carol") and Steven Spielberg for "Bridge of Spies." But I'm very happy that George Miller for "Mad Max: Fury Road" got in. While we're in the subject of sequel, apparently, the DGA felt that J.J. Abrams is not worthy...yet...for a nod!
But this year's awards offer a bunch of newbies like Tom McCarthy ("Spotlight"), Adam McKay ("The Big Short"), and Miller. Meanwhile, Ridley Scott has been nominated three times before but never won for "Thelma and Louise" in 1991, "Gladiator" in 2000, and "Black Hawk Down" in 2001. Let's see if "The Martian" will do the trick and get Ridley his DGA! By the way, he hasn't won an Oscar either and he was nominated for those movies too!
Winners will be announced on Feb. 6th. Here's your complete list of nominees »

The Martian star was among a handful of Oscar hopefuls who were honored over the weekend at the Palm Springs international film festival
Matt Damon campaigned for Oscar glory for Ridley Scott, his director on The Martian, at the Palm Springs international film festival in California on Saturday. Scott, the film-maker behind such classics as Blade Runner and Alien, has been nominated three times over the course of his career for Thelma and Louise, Gladiator and Black Hawk Down, but has yet to win a trophy.

C.K. and Brooks will voice two of the lead roles and executive produce the series which will be Brooks' first television credit. Louis C.K.'s popular "Louie" show has run on the network for several years and he has two other shows scheduled to premiere on FX this year.
FX has had great success with its animated spy comedy "Archer" and plans to launch two other shows in that genre shortly - "Cassius and Clay" which is best described as a post-apocalyptic spin on "Thelma and Louise," and "Bigfoot" which Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg are producing.
