Sofia Vergara's 'simple' bridal beauty

1 July 2015 4:36 AM, PDT | National Ledger | See recent National Ledger news »

Sofia Vergara wants her wedding day makeup to look ''fresh''. The brunette beauty, 42 - who is engaged to actor Joe Manganiello - has offered her top beauty tips to fellow brides-to-be and insists she won't be experimenting too much with cosmetics on her big day. She told People: ''I have a very important makeup tip for the girls [who] are getting married soon. ''I think sometimes we over think it because it's a very special occasion and we want to have everything perfect. ''With makeup, sometimes people exaggerate a little bit or make it too different because they want to do more. Sometimes, it makes it look like it's not you and when you see the pictures you're like, 'Oh, what happened to me?' So I think it's better to keep yourself looking fresh in the makeup that you've always liked and be you.'' The 'Modern Family' »

Ellen DeGeneres Influenced Gay Rights Views More Than Any Other Celebrity (Study)

30 June 2015 11:42 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Ellen DeGeneres did more to influence Americans’ attitudes about gay rights than any other celebrity or public figure, a new poll by Variety and branding expert Jeetendr Sehdev found.

The daytime host wasn’t the only person who played a key role in shaping hearts and minds. President Barack Obama, who endorsed same-sex marriage during his 2012 re-election bid after initially opposing it, was the second most cited figure, followed by openly gay “Glee” star Jane Lynch and openly gay comedian Rosie O’Donnell. Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was the fifth most influential voice on gay rights, the study found. Like Obama, Clinton initially opposed gay marriage before changing her views two years ago.

The results were calculated from a nationwide survey of 2,000 adults between the ages of 18 and 65. Polling was based on a combination of online studies and one-on-one interviews. The study was conducted as part of Variety »

How ‘Modern Family’ Enables Change by First Serving Comedy

30 June 2015 9:45 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Christopher Lloyd is a veteran of “Wings” and “Frasier” and, with Steven Levitan, is co-creator of “Modern Family.”

Outside of callow undergraduates and cowering S&M practitioners, nobody likes a lecture.

Which is why, from the outset, we were devoutly apolitical with Mitch and Cam on “Modern Family.” Of course, it was tempting to create some jowly, closed-minded antagonist, a Mr. Fox, say, and have Cam let loose with a pearly diatribe, his colored cuffs flailing. In truth, it was almost equally tempting to go at our pious pro-gay detractors who harangued us weekly for not making Mitch and Cam flawless men who paused only briefly from leading exemplary lives to bend each other over backward in a show of we’re-not-afraid-of-anyone’s-judgment love. Note to that camp: We didn’t do that not because we found it unseemly, but because it would have been unseemly in how unfunny it would have been. »

Carol Leifer Adapting ‘How to Succeed’ Memoir as Comedy For Gaumont TV

30 June 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Gaumont International Television is developing a comedy series based on Carol Leifer’s 2014 book “How to Succeed in Business Without Really Crying.”

Leifer is writing a script based on material in “How to Succeed,” a blend of memoir and life advice offered by the seasoned comedy writer and performer.

Leifer’s credits range from “Seinfeld” and “Saturday Night Live” to “Modern Family” to numerous awards shows including CBS’ Tonycast that aired earlier this month. She was also just named a co-exec producer on the NBC comedy-reality series “Better Late Than Never.” She is a four-time Emmy nominee.

Gaumont International TV is expanding into comedy series after establishing its U.S. outpost with drama series including the “Silence of the Lambs” prequel “Hannibal” and Netflix’s “Hemlock Grove.” “Hannibal” is about to end its three-season run on NBC but may well relocate to another outlet for new episodes.

Jesse Tyler Ferguson: How ‘Modern Family’ Helped Change Perceptions on Gay Couples

29 June 2015 7:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Jesse Tyler Ferguson stars in ABC’s “Modern Family.” In September 2012, he and Justin Mikita started Tie the Knot, and the two married in 2013.

Modern Family” is a game-changer, isn’t it?

I love the show so much. In the pilot, you’re meeting Mitch and Cam when they’re becoming fathers for the first time. And that’s the most interesting thing about them; their gayness is about sixth on the list of their qualities. They’re fathers, they’re sons, they’re a lawyer and a teacher — they’re also gay, but the series does not lead with that. That was progressive and bold, even though it shouldn’t be. “Modern Family” has become a pop-culture touchstone, an easy and safe way to expose audiences to many different relationships in a way that doesn’t feel threatening.

And the characters have built over the years …

26 June 2015 1:47 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The Supreme Court decision affirming the right of same-sex marriage transcended politics and legalese — so much so that numerous television shows took to social media to embrace the moment with messages to fans.

Examples included ABC’s “Modern Family,” which showed support by offering a photo throwback to the marriage of characters Mitchell (Jesse Tyler Ferguson) and Cam (Eric Stonestreet) filtered through the red equality logo, and BBCAmerica’s “Orphan Black”, which offered up .gifs of Delphine (Evelyne Brochu)’s emotional declaration for Cosima (Tatiana Maslany) and all who come with her. Meanwhile, Fox’s “Empire” summed up the day with Jamal’s (Jussie Smollet) public coming out moment and Lgbt-friendly series like Fox’s “Brooklyn Nine-Nine”, Showtime’s “Shameless,” and Netflix’s “Orange Is the New Black” and “Grace and Frankie” also showed character-specific support.

It’s fitting that television would celebrate the Lgbt rights milestone because it is »

While adoring fans screamed praises at Thursday's Magic Mike Xxl Hollywood premiere, Sofia Vergara and fiance Joe Manganiello didn't receive a warm welcome from pro-life protestors, who walked Hollywood Boulevard flashing signs like "Embryo Defense" and "Persons Not Property."    The protest stems from Vergara's controversial decision not to bring her frozen embryos -- fertilized by ex-fiance Nick Loeb -- to term.   Loeb -- who is suing the Modern Family actress over her refusal -- penned a New York Times op-ed in April, arguing that she shouldn't destroy her frozen embryos despite their break-up.    Read More Sofia Vergara's Ex-Fiance Pens Bitter New York Times Op-
