KeKe Palmer: Queen Latifah Told Me to 'Just Be Myself' Hosting New Show

7 July 2014 3:00 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

When KeKe Palmer found out she was one of the youngest people ever to host a daytime talk show, she went straight to the Queen for advice. Before the actress, 20, kicked off her Bet show Just KeKe last week, she got a couple hosting pointers from Queen Latifah. "She was saying it definitely would be a lot of work and to prepare myself for that," Palmer tells People. "And that's definitely true because there are a lot of hours and everything like that, and a lot of talking involved, hence my voice being hoarse." Palmer adds, "And then she said »

Game of Thrones Recap: How to Chain Your Dragons

16 June 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

They don't celebrate Father's Day in Westeros - though you could argue, given the focus on dynastic ties and lines of succession, that every day is Father's Day in the Seven Kingdoms - but Sunday night's fourth-season finale of Game of Thrones, fittingly titled "The Children," did the holiday justice anyway. From the dungeons of the Red Keep to the wilderness beyond the Wall, all of Westeros was taking stock of their father figures. Some exchanged old mentors for new, while others finally realized how crappy their daddies really were. One thing's for sure - after the events of this episode, »

A Ten-Year Anniversary (2004-2014): Top 10 Cinematic Duds from Yesterday

11 June 2014 12:48 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Has it actually been ten years already since we have been engaged in the realm of films dating back to 2004? A decade is certainly a long period of time to build our appreciation for cinema up until this critical point in 2014. In looking back at 2004, one can recall fondly some of the more desirable releases to come out at that time. For instance, the superb Million Dollar Baby was the Academy Award-winning film for 2004. Even the comedies that were released that year gave movie audiences cause to rejoice with such ditties as the sleeper indie hit Napoleon Dynamite and well as mainstream laughers in Mean Girls and Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgandy.

Unfortunately for every gem there is a dud and then some. And 2004 had its share to say the least. So how about getting nostalgic and recalling some of the notable misses that were heaped on misled moviegoers »

'Orange Is the New Black' Season 2: Highlights and Reactions

9 June 2014 9:30 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Does anyone else have an "Orange Is the New Black" hangover after this weekend? We rushed home to binge on Season 2 of the long-awaited return of the Netflix series on Friday, and boy were the 13 episodes of prison drama (laughs, too!) a doozy.

If you're like us and got through the whole thing at once, let's talk about the highlights. If you're just curious and don't mind spoilers -- you can stick around too!

Here are our reactions to some of the season's standout situations. (Again, Spoilers Ahead):

Politics, Power, and Protection

The three Ps of Season 2? (Aside from prison, of course.) It's not as if jailhouse politics weren't a recurring idea last year, but this season the cliques got more serious and the struggles of the administration were more of a focal point. As racial divides became more prominent under Vee's reign (more on that later) and Red was no longer on top, »

The Top Ten Bald Baddies of the Big Screen

5 June 2014 4:10 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

It is always fun recalling the hair-raising scheming of bald bad guys in cinema. These hairless hooligans make for entertaining film fiends that take being naughty on the big screen to a whole new level of devilish delight. Whenever chaos and corruption is in the mix one can count on these balding bad apples to take it to the level of insanity. Now granted that there are other Bald Baddies of the Big Screen that are just as worthy as making anyone’s top ten list besides the selections that being profiled in this column. In any event, let’s just take a gander at the follicle-challenged foes in this serving of badness and baldness, shall we?

Here are The Top Ten Bald Baddies of the Big Screen (in alphabetical order):

1.) Ernst Stavro Blofeld from You Only Live Twice (1967)

There have been many menacing James Bond villains that have »

2 April 2014 6:55 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

All men must die, but there's no need for you to have "trying to figure out what the hell is going on in Game of Thrones" listed as your cause of death. When Season Four debuts this Sunday, the cast somehow manages to get even bigger, despite a mortality rate that makes trench warfare look like a leisurely stroll through New York City's scenic High Line park. But with a little help, anyone can look like a master of the Game. Brush up with our Season Four cheat sheet, which »

It's not just Samuel L Jackson – we've all had those 'we all look alike' moments | Joseph Harker

12 February 2014 8:00 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Reporter Sam Rubin confusing Jackson with Laurence Fishburne is an all-too-common mistake that reminds black people of our outsider status

"Did you get a lot of reaction to that Super Bowl commercial?"

"What Super Bowl commercial?"

Sam Rubin, entertainment reporter for the "No 1 morning show in Hollywood", has just made an epic blunder – confusing his guest, actor Samuel L Jackson (who's black), with Laurence Fishburne (he's also black, and also an actor), who really did appear in the commercial.

Jackson's reaction is classic. He tells the squirming reporter: "We may all be black and famous but we don't all look alike." And he doesn't let up: "You're the entertainment reporter for this station and you don't know the difference between me and Laurence Fishburne? There must be a very short line for your job."

What makes the error even worse is that the Super Bowl advert played on Fishburne's high-profile »

American Horror Story: Coven Is Full of Witchery – Geek Girl Navigating the World

6 February 2014 5:03 AM, PST | Boomtron | See recent Boomtron news »

American Horror Story” has made its mark as an anthology series. Each new season presents an entirely new setting with entirely new characters and a change to the name that gives DVRs fits.

This season, of course, American Horror Story decided to tackle the subject of witches. Coven is set in New Orleans. The story threads through three primary time periods, the 1830s, the 1970s, and the present day. Each of those distinct times has bearing on the current story, often in more immediate ways than you might think.

American Horror Story: Coven” has kept Sarah Paulson, Jessica Lange, Lily Rabe, Evan Peters, and Frances Conroy just like the previous two seasons. Taissa Farmiga, Denis O’Hare, and Jamie Brewer are also familiar faces to anyone who has been following the show. While you might suspect that having a constant cast might get boring, the material and the characters are »

The 10 most high-powered Oscar races of the last 25 years

16 January 2014 9:20 AM, PST | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Most Academy Awards hand out five nominations apiece. Some awards only hand out three; a few years ago, the Academy opened up the Best Picture race to like a million nominees. But the specific number doesn’t really matter. Most races inevitably come down to some kind of face-off between two nominees: Frontrunner vs. Dark Horse, Beloved Veteran vs. Dynamic Newcomer, Megahit vs. Beloved Smaller Film, Dark Tale Of The Modern World vs. Sentimental Nostalgia Bait.

Each year, though there are races that defy any easy binary rendering. These are the categories that stacked almost too high with talent. Sometimes that’s clear right away, »

American Horror Story, Ep.3.10: “The Magical Delights of Stevie Nicks”

8 January 2014 9:29 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

American Horror Story, Season 3, Episode 10: “The Magical Delights of Stevie Nicks

Directed by Alfonso Gomez-Rejon

Written by James Wong

Airs Wednesdays at 10:00 Pm on FX

American Horror Story: Coven makes a solid return for the second half of their season, featuring not one, but two guest stars. After nine instalments of Stevie Nicks tunes, we’re finally treated to the Queen of rock herself, brought in by Fiona as a peace offering to Misty, who may, or may not be the next Supreme. Most of Nicks’ screen-time was dedicated to her unplugged performances at the Academy’s piano. First we’re treated to the singer/songwriter’s “Rhiannon,” (making a second appearance this season), and later she performs “Has Anyone Ever Written Anything for You,” a song which was written as a tribute to Joe Walsh of the Eagles. What does this have to do with the plot of Coven? »
