Judge and presenter respond to Twitter criticism of show as Iain Watters exits after his ice cream appeared to be sabotaged
Forget last years custardgate Wednesdays episode of The Great British Bake Off must rank as one of the most controversial ever. Bearded contestant Iain Watters was sent home for failing to present a pudding after he dumped his baked alaska in the bin.
At the end of the day Mary & I need something to judge, it's not about melted ice cream but about what's presented to Us... #bingate
I'm glad Mary's not on twitter this would upset her.. #enoughnow

I can't actually believe I'm wading into this... (And wading is the operative word...) Big love to @iain_watters anyhow. What a gent x »
Contestant Iain Watters was eliminated on tonight's episode (August 27) amid allegations that rival Diana Beard sabotaged his Baked Alaska dish.
Beard was shown taking Iain's ice cream out of the freezer, potentially leading to his Baked Alaska becoming a muddled mess that caused his elimination by Hollywood and Mary Berry.
This week's result led to a flurry of viewer complaints on social media, with Hollywood eventually responding on his official Twitter account.
"At the end of the day Mary & I need something to judge, it's not about melted ice cream but about what's presented to Us... #bingat… I'm glad Mary's not on twitter this would upset her.. #enoughnow," Hollywood wrote.
Perkins added that she remains unconvinced that there was any sabotage at all, despite the hashtags '#BinGate' and '#DirtyDiana' trending on Twitter. »
Beverly Center: Flynn’s Final Scandal Makes for Interesting Cinematic Footnote
It’s been eight years since Richard Glatzer and Wash Westmoreland’s 2006 sophomore film, Quinceanera swept up the Audience and Grand Jury Prize awards at the Sundance Film Festival. The directing duo is back with a re-ignition of an old Hollywood scandal in The Last of Robin Hood, a glance at the final years of Errol Flynn and his romantic entanglement with a female minor. While the material is unerringly fascinating and features a trio of notable names, it’s a rendition that feels a bit too polished and hardly as seedy as it should be. It seems attempts have been made to assuage unnecessary heartache to the relatives of the ingénue at the center of this strange ménage-a-trois, and the resulting film seems a heavily polished reenactment too apprehensive to really get its hands dirty. Yet, the »

Warning: The following recap contains major spoilers from Thursday’s season finale of Rookie Blue. If you have yet to watch, avert your eyes. Everyone else, read on…
Rookie Blue‘s Season 5 finale didn’t spare any punches, wrapping with a boom, a bun in the oven and a big dilemma.
With so many juicy twists and cliffhangers, let’s not waste any time getting down to business.
We’re still very much in the midst of August, but Universal is already taking steps to ensure that Ouija will be a familiar name by the time October rolls around. A new TV spot for the upcoming horror title has landed online, tightening footage we already saw in the first theatrical preview into a concise, if less scary teaser.
Ouija is one of a few horror pics that will be competing for your screams (and hard-earned cash) come Halloween – earlier in the month, we’ll be getting The Conjuring spinoff Annabelle, anthology ABCs of Death 2, horror-tinged battle epic Dracula Untold and freaky threequel V/H/S Viral. So what sets this one apart? Its young, photogenic cast (which includes a wealth of supporting players from teen-targeted TV) might be enough.

He landed the role of a lifetime as a troubled meth-slinger but Aaron Paul isnt done just yet. Here he talks about returning for the prequel, Better Call Saul, playing sidekick to a cartoon horse and his religious upbringing
Aaron Paul remembers clearly the summer he thought his career was over. He was 27 years old when he landed his biggest gig to date, playing Amanda Seyfrieds do-gooder boyfriend in HBOs Mormon family saga, Big Love. It wasnt a huge role, but it was significant a step up, surely, from the bit parts and commercials he had jobbed through for 10 years, since loading up his faded gold Toyota Corolla in Boise, Idaho and driving 800 miles south to Los Angeles. But, he says, I was the lowest I ever was. I had a breakdown, not knowing what I was going to do.
Paul, now 34, left home at 17, the youngest of four siblings »

This weekend, Megan Fox plays April O’Neil in Paramount’s “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles,” but she’s not the first actress to portray the character. In 1990, Judith Hoag originated the role of the intrepid reporter who befriends the pizza-loving heroes, although she almost turned down the part. “When I first heard of it, I thought it was a horror film,” Hoag recalls on a recent telephone call with Variety. “‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ is such a strange name. I wasn’t into the comic books at all.”
Hoag, 22 at the time, was in the middle of shooting the Robin Williams comedy “Cadillac Man,” and her schedule prevented her from committing to “Ninja Turtles.” Then the producers were able to make it work, and Hoag had to fly from New York to Wilmington, North Carolina, on the weekends for production. “People would be wondering where I would racing off to on a Friday, »

Original Starz drama “Power,” which had been picking up ratings steam in July and has been especially popular among African-Americans, surged Saturday night in its finale to hit series highs that more than doubled the audience of its premiere.
According to Nielsen, the initial 9 p.m. telecast of “Power” averaged 1.082 million viewers — up from 754,000 one week earlier — and two quickie replays brought the show’s total for the night to 1.769 million. Counting all airings over the weekend, its nearly 2.5 million viewers is the largest total audience for a Starz finale since the conclusion of “Spartacus: War of the Damned” in April 2013.
The June 7 series premiere of “Power,” whose executive producers include Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson, had drawn a modest 462,000 viewers for its initial airing. But it steadily grew throughout its eight-week run.
Despite being in considerably fewer homes than most basic cable networks, the season finale of “Power” at 9 p.m. »
