First Lady Michelle Obama Reveals Her Frozen Fandom

3 September 2014 9:35 AM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

First Lady Michelle Obama made a cameo in the latest Funny or Die video, which featured a fake movie trailer starring Chloë Grace Moretz and Tyler Posey. The fake film, Snackpocalypse, follows a theme close to the first lady's heart: the unhealthy effects of eating junk food. She doesn't seem too impressed by the trailer, though, as she says, "Can we just watch Frozen again?" Her cameo comes on the heels of President Obama's Emmy recognition, as his appearance on Funny or Die's Between Two Ferns With Zach Galifianakis won the Emmy for outstanding short-format live-action entertainment.

The Winners of the Creative Arts Emmys Are Here

18 August 2014 8:16 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

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 »

"Sorry, can you repeat that? I’m playing the new South Park video game. It’s amazing!" The interview has just started, and Chris Hardwick is already apologizing over the phone from his L.A. home. Had almost anyone else mentioned there were gaming in the middle of a conversation, the statement might be considered borderline rude. But come on: This is the man they call "The Nerdist," who's built an empire out of reviewing gadgets, internet binging and hosting conversations with past and present genre icons.

Bradley Cooper's Plan to Save Obamacare: Actor Set Up Obama's Between Two Ferns Chat With Pal Zach Galifianakis

2 April 2014 9:20 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Turns out, President Barack Obama has a loyal—and intelligent—friend in Bradley Cooper. In a new post titled "Behind the Obamacare surprise," Politico reports that the Silver Linings Playbook star played a crucial role in facilitating the Potus' appearance on the mock-interview show Between Two Ferns with Zach Galifianakis, which lead to a massive surge in Obamacare enrollment. With girlfriend Suki Waterhouse by his side, the 39-year-old actor visited the White House on Feb. 11 for a state dinner honoring President François Hollande where he met with Obama's senior adviser Valerie Jarrett to "brainstorm ideas about how to help get the word out on Obamacare," the site »

Watch Adam Scott's 'Step Brothers' character rant against Obamacare

25 March 2014 9:30 PM, PDT | Pop2it | See recent Pop2it news »

Funny or Die's crusade to get as many people signed up for health insurance by March 31 continues. First President Barack Obama appeared on "Between Two Ferns with Zach Galifianakis," now "Parks and Recreation" star Adam Scott has revisited his memorable role as a scumbag from "Step Brothers."

The video includes cameos by Mark Cuban, Jeff Probst and Chris Daughty. What is important though, is the impassioned speech Scott gives as Derek Hough. He doesn't need health insurance. He drinks antifreeze, is riddled with concussions and and finds his multiple experiences being struck by lightning erotic. Who needs healthcare when that's your life?

Of course, none of that helps when he trips and breaks his ankle. He must be wishing for Obamacare now. »

Obama Defends Funny Or Die Appearance, Promotes It On The Radio

23 March 2014 8:20 PM, PDT | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

President Obama’s appearance in early March 2014 on Funny or Die’s Between Two Ferns with Zach Galifianakis accomplished two things. One, it helped push Americans to Healthcare.gov in statistically significant numbers. And two, it drew the ire of conventionally conservative news programs with critiques of unpresidential behavior. Stephen Colbert has a rather comprehensive clip showcasing the on-air criticisms Potus received from a number of different Fox news reporters, anchors, and hosts after his online video publicity stunt. The critique that resonated most with the press came from Bill O’Reilly, who expressed his opinion that Abraham Lincoln wouldn’t have been part of what he believes to have been a disrespectful shill. Here’s the segment from Colbert Report: O’Reilly’s critique resonated with Obama, too. The President of the United States defended his nontraditional media appearance on the web series during another non traditional media appearance »

Obama Enlists Record-Re-Tweeter Ellen DeGeneres In Obamacare Push: Video

20 March 2014 9:05 AM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Continuing to urge Americans to sign up for Affordable Care Act coverage before the March 31 deadline, President Obama today turned to the woman who’d broken his re-tweet record, Ellen DeGeneres. Obama appeared on her syndicated The Ellen DeGeneres Show via live shot from the White House –  his first appearance on the show since being elected to the White House. It’s been about a week since Obama appeared on the Funny or Die web series Between Two Ferns with Zach Galifianakis to tout the benefits of Obamacare; some members of the media had a field day with that one, but they’re pretty busy now with the missing Malaysia Airlines plane story so you may not see so much hair-tearing about today’s appearance, in which Potus discusses his having eaten carrot sticks with potato chips while Flotus Michelle Obama is in China with their daughters; his Practically Perfect »
