It’s Al Pacino day here on the Lido. The actor is in town for two very different films, Barry Levinson’s out-of-competition The Humbling and David Gordon Green’s competition entry Manglehorn. Pacino stars in the former as an aging theater actor at a crossroads who has an affair with Greta Gerwig’s younger woman. It’s based on the Philip Roth novel and adapted by Buck Henry. In Manglehorn, Green revisits his beloved Texas with the story of a disenchanted locksmith who pines for a lost love and ultimately breaks out of his self-imposed prison. Both have received some mixed notices here thus far. Never mind, the faithful were out in droves for packed back-to-back press conferences this afternoon to hear the venerable Pacino wax on a wide array of subjects.
Pacino said The Humbling, to which he acquired the rights, attracted him because of the juxtaposition of »

The 2014 Emmys took a moment on Monday night to remember the late Robin Williams, who passed away Aug. 11.
Following the traditional In Memoriam segment (which was accompanied by a sublime “Smile” cover from Sara Bareilles), Williams’ longtime friend and colleague Billy Crystal took the stage to eulogize the actor-comedian.
“He made us laugh. Hard. Every time you saw him,” Crystal remembered. “The brilliance was astounding, the relentless energy was kind of thrilling.”
After recounting a few anecdotes of their friendship — including Williams’ hilarious tendency to sit with Crystal’s »
So the big Emmys don't air until next Sunday night and at Moviefone we will have, of course, full coverage. But last night the Creative Arts Emmys were handed out, for the people that are largely responsible for making these shows that you absolutely love -- you know, the behind-the-scenes talent tasked with conceptualizing and realizing your favorite programs. Oh -- and some guest actor and actresses awards were handed out, so there's that too!
In the Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series category Uzo Aduba took home the prize for "Orange is the New Black." Since we are, very shamefully, one of a handful of Americans who hasn't seen a single second of "Orange in the New Black," this doesn't mean a whole lot to us, but we are very happy for her! (We promise, we'll watch soon.) For the Outstanding Guest Actor in a Comedy Series, the »

The first round of 2014 Emmy Awards were handed out at the Creative Arts Emmys ceremony on Saturday (August 16) night at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles. The ceremony, which precedes the Monday, August 25 Primetime Emmy Awards telecast, offered signs of hope for a number of drama and comedy hopefuls. Netflix's "Orange Is The New Black," for example, won Emmys for editing, series casting and for Uzo Aduba, who is considered a guest actress for the purposes of these awards. No other comedy series was able to build any other momentum going into next week's show, with "The Big Bang Bang Theory," "Nurse Jackie," "How I Met Your Mother" and "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" grabbing isolated tech prizes and Jimmy Fallon winning the Guest Actor in a Comedy Series award for the second time in three years for his "Saturday Night Live" hosting duties. The two guest acting awards on the drama side »

Fifteen years ago, America was asked a very important question: Who wants to be a millionaire? Turns out lots of people were interested in getting an extra seven figures, and so a game show was born. Originally hosted by Regis Philbin, Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? premiered on Aug. 16, 1999. Through the years, the program made some tweaks, but the basic principles have stayed the same. If a hot-seat contestant uses their lifelines wisely and answers all 15 questions correctly, they are going home with at least $1,000,000. Many have come close to the feat, but only 13 folks have reached the big prize so far. »

In case you weren't counting, "Inside the Actors Studio" turns twenty this week.
To celebrate the anniversary, we thought of bringing you the funniest moments from the show or even the most profound thoughts from stars such as Brad Pitt, Julia Roberts, and the late, great Paul Newman, but instead we decided to change it up a bit.
Here's a slideshow compilation of the actors's favorite curse words, from motherf**ker to d**khead to jamph (we still figuring out what that last one is...). For those of you unfamiliar with the show, the host of "Inside the Actors Studio," James Lipton, asks the stars their favorite curse word at the end of the interview. »

There are so many amazing videos of the great Robin Williams that fans can watch to be reminded why he is being so intensely mourned after his tragic death. There are comedy routines that will leave you with an ache in your stomach like you just did a hundred sit-ups because you were laughing so hard. There are monologues from his great dramatic roles that are a master class in finding the perfect balance between comedic timing and dramatic delivery, a feat that Robin Williams could do better than anyone. But the video that hit us hardest wasn't a standup act, or bits from his character roles, or even the astounding uncut version of Williams on Inside the Actors Studio. It was this video of Robin and his daughter, Zelda, »
Part of Inside the Actors Studio is a questionnaire in which host James Lipton asks his guest the following question: "If heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the pearly gates?" During Robin Williams's legendary appearance on the show (January 29, 2001 - more on that later), he used the question as an opportunity to do what he did best: Riff. "There's seating at the front," is his immediate answer. "The concert begins at five. It'll be Mozart, Elvis and one of your choosing." But then he lapses into sincerity. "If heaven exists, to know that there's laughter, »

This is a clip from a 2001 episode of Inside the Actors Studio featuring Robin Williams discussing the possibility of an afterlife. It's been resurfaced with a new poignancy since news of his death broke yesterday. In it, host James Lipton asks one of his trademark parlor questions, "If Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the pearly gates?" "There's seating near the front!" Robin Williams cracks. "The concert begins at 5, it will be Mozart, Elvis and anyone of your choosing." Even when he got serious, he never took himself too seriously. You can turn this into a discussion on religion and morality, or whatever hot button debate you want, or you can »
Robin Williams never just relegated himself to his official film and television work and, especially recently, spoiled audiences with his delightful, exuberant charisma in a variety of venues. Whether it was a talk show appearance, an official comedy special, a Richard Pryor roast, a Uso tour, a Reddit Ama, or a heartfelt interview with James Lipton or Marc Maron, Williams gave his all to each occasion.
Below are 16 essential moments. Be warned, there’s some salty language—but if you love Williams, you already knew that.

Adorable. Blue Ivy is photographed with her mother Beyonce. Both in super cute outfits. The two have ended a 132 show tour around the world. And our office is abuzz with oh-my-gosh’s and how-cute’s. Seriously, this family is adorable.
Juan Pablo Galavis from The Bachelor was booed and heckled in an Atlantic City club this weekend. Late Friday night Juan Pablo was scheduled to host at the Harrah’s Pool After Dark nightclub. During his appearance some people booed at him and even spilled drinks on him. What we aren’t told is it’s because he told them that he only “like liked” the audience and “couldn’t commit to something right now.”

In case you had forgotten, there are a bunch of singers on "How I Met Your Mother." Harris is especially known for roles in Broadway musicals, even if the role of Inspector Javert isn't in his official resume. It might as well be after dueling so well with Segel's Jean Valjean.
While the whole thing is both amazing and kind of ridiculous, the best part may come at the 1:20 mark when the two singers get so into their parts that Cobie Smulders has to get up and move. »
Lest nine seasons of the sitcom not be enough as “How I Met Your Mother” nears its swan song, the cast provided a few more laughs while visiting “Inside the Actors Studio,” thanks to Neil Patrick Harris and Jason Segel’s musical talents.
During the show, a fan asked Patrick Harris and Segel to sing “Les Miserables” duet “Confronation,” a bit they did in 2006 on “The Megan Mullally Show,” but were sadly cut short. Patrick Harris seized on the opportunity immediately, taking off as Javert, with Segel jumping in as Jean Valjean shortly after.
Fellow cast members Alyson Hannigan, Cobie Smulders and Josh Radnor looked on, along with the audience, as the two gave a perfect a cappella performance that earned a standing ovation. For other parts of the hour, the cast answered questions from James Lipton both in and out of character. The full episode can be seen here. »

We already have our tissues ready for the series finale of How I Met Your Mother on Monday, but this makes it a little easier to bear. The cast of the show got together for an episode of Inside the Actors Studio on Thursday, and when they did, it was … legendary. There were lots of laughs, but the best moment came when Neil Patrick Harris and Jason Segel performed an impromptu duet of "Confrontation" from the musical Les Miserables. It wasn't the first time the pair have sung the song together - the Les Mis fans previously performed a snippet »
