Safe to say these two lovebirds are still going strong! Sofía Vergara and Joe Manganiello turned heads in Hawaii, where they are currently on vacation (and presumably putting every other couple to shame) when the two stepped out for a romantic stroll, appearing relaxed and happy as they walked hand-in-hand. The 42-year-old Modern Family star was dressed to perfection in a fitted blue maxi dress that highlighted her enviable curves (and cleavage!), teaming the colorful look with a stack of bracelets, classic shades and a tan over size handbag. Her 37-year-old hunky man, meanwhile, looked ready for the beach in a pair of black shorts, a gray t-shirt and a Hawaiian Kukui nut »
Thanks to the successful film adaptations of The Hunger Games franchise and The Fault In Our Stars, 2014 could be dubbed the year of the Ya. The genre of books took over the box office with other big screen takes on the first of the Divergent series, The Giver, If I Stay, and The Maze Runner.
While the primary focus on these films was the young stars that embodied the angst-ridden teens of the books, every one of these movies was supported by an award-winning adult actor. Even Meryl Streep got into the Ya game, adding pedigree to The Giver, which starred budding star Brenton Thwaites.
But how did Streep compare to Julianne Moore, who stepped into the role of President Coin in the third Hunger Games film, or to Kate Winslet, who portrayed the villain in the first installment of Divergent? We ranked all of the 2014 film performances based on who used their Oscar prowess to maximum »

Though we'd never go so far as to say that familiarity breeds contempt when it comes to The Fall, it is true to say that the second series of Allan Cubitt's crime thriller lacked a little of the impact of the 2013 run. »
Ariel recently explained the reasoning behind her ahead-of-her-years style -- and how she's still trying to figure out how to dress for her body type -- in a new interview with People magazine.

"It's interesting, because I'm very young, but I have a more mature body," she told the publication at the People Magazine Awards Thursday night in Los Angeles. "So it's a blessing and a curse. I have to find things that are appropriate to wear but also fit my body well, so it still looks good."
She also naturally gravitates towards more chic, mature choices, such as the black-and white jumpsuit by Nbd she sported Thursday.
Twenty-five years ago this week, the Fred Savage movie The Wizard hit theaters. For many '80s babies, this was required viewing - either to see a first glimpse of the yet-to-be-released Super Mario Bros. 3 or to see what the Wonder Years star looked like in contemporary clothes. Critics, however, dismissed this video-gaming, road trip movie as a showcase for Nintendo products. Roger Ebert's review began on a sharply sarcastic note: "This is a movie that has everything going for it, except for a good script, a believable premise and common sense." Today, The Wizard stands as a reminder »

Twenty-five years ago this week, kids were finalizing their holiday wish lists, which probably included a Nintendo home gaming system or the company's brand new handheld device, the Game Boy.

They were also gearing up to see The Wizard, a brand new movie about -- what else? -- Nintendo.
Older generations may not recall The Wizard, but I do, since it was aimed right at my demographic. For one thing, it starred Fred Savage, a kid my age I saw each week on The Wonder Years. For another, it offered our first peek at Nintendo's highly anticipated new game, Super Mario Bros. 3. And even though I wasn't a serious gamer, that still sounded fairly interesting.

The Wizard follows two runaway brothers, Corey and Jimmy (Savage and Luke Edwards) on a cross-country trip to compete in a Nintendo tournament. Savage is chatty and a quick thinker, but Jimmy hasn't »

Just hours after actress Peyton List signed on to play Lisa Snart, the brother of Central City baddie Leonard Snart/Captain Cold (Wentworth Miller), The CW's The Flash has also added Sleepy Hollow star Nicholas Gonzalez as Dante Ramon, the older brother of Carlos Valdes' Cisco Ramon. Dante is described as a charming and gifted pianist who has always been a family favorite, despite not achieving the success he wanted. Although Dante secretly resents Cisco's success with S.T.A.R. Labs, he must depend on his brother if he wants to survive, after they are "thrust into extreme circumstances."
Nicholas Gonzalez will debut in "Rogue Time", the show's 16th episode which is also where Peyton List's Lisa Snart will appear. It isn't known if he is also booked for future episodes as well, or if this will just be a one-time appearance. Our report from earlier today »

When Comedy Bang! Bang! debuted on IFC two years ago, transforming the free-form improv of its podcast sibling into a tight 22 minutes of television seemed like a tall order. That's why creator Scott Aukerman didn't try; his TV show is a much different beast from the podcast, and successfully so: The series kicks off its 40-episode fourth season next year. Deeply silly and never afraid to go on a surreal tangent, Comedy Bang! Bang! is one of a kind, even on the crowded cable spectrum. That's why we're excited to debut a couple clips from upcoming episodes. The first comes »

Remaking his own thriller Loft from 2008, Belgian director Eric Van Looy makes his English language debut with The Loft, which sees a group of five married men, made up of Karl Urban, Wentworth Miller, Matthias Schoenaerts (who reprises his role from the original), James Marsden, and Modern family's Eric Stonestreet sharing a secret penthouse where they indulge their deepest, extra marital fantasies. Of course, this arrangement doesn't stay happy for long, and when the body of unidentified woman is found, the finger pointing and backstabbing begins. The first trailer certainly comes with an unbearable air of tension, with a good central mystery feeding it. Check out the trailer below. Released: 23rd January 2015 (U.S.)/ ? (Irl/U.K.) »

10. The Leftovers
There have been a number of new and returning shows that have enthralled, horrified, excited, and caused numerous other emotional reactions among the viewing public. However no show, new or old, has left an impression as deep as that of HBO’s The Leftovers. While the series’ 10 episode first season ended its run in early September, its impact has lasted much longer, making it a strong entry in the list of the best shows of 2014.
The key strength of The Leftovers is its seeming disinterest in what caused the event at the center of the show. The series’ decision to focus on the effect rather than the cause not only sets it apart from nearly everything else on television, it also helps develop the show’s wide swath of characters. In addition, putting the disastrous event as the backdrop, rather than at the forefront, allows the audience to »

Watch the video to hear why Tony Hawk picks Mammoth as one of his favorite California destinations, and to learn where you can snowboard the same pipe that Shaun White used to practice for the 2014 Sochi Olympics. »

Though Modern Family saw a dip in the ratings last season, it's still ABC 's top-rated series. There's essentially no chance that it will be cancelled but, will the ratings continue to slide this year? Stay tuned.

The ensemble cast is Ed O'Neill, Sofía Vergara, Julie Bowen, Ty Burrell, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Eric Stonestreet, Sarah Hyland, Ariel Winter, Nolan Gould, Rico Rodriguez, Aubrey Anderson-Emmons, and Pierce Wallace.

Tis the season… to celebrate the 2015 Golden Globe nominations!

(And for all the movie buffs out there, take a look at our big screen edition of snubs and surprises.)
