He is the deadliest American sniper ever, called “The Devil” by the enemies he hunted and “The Legend” by his Navy Seal brothers. From 1999 to 2009, U.S. Navy Seal Chris Kyle recorded the most career sniper kills in United States Military history. The Pentagon has officially confirmed more then 150 of Kyle’s kills (the previous American record was 109), but it has declined to verify the astonishing total number for this book. Iraqi insurgents feared Kyle so much they named him Al-Shaitan (“the devil”) and placed a bounty on his head. Kyle earned a legendary status among his fellow Seals, Marines, and U.S. Army soldiers, who he protected with deadly accuracy from rooftops and stealth positions. Gripping and unforgettable, Kyle »

Is Emmy Rossum getting married? Not so fast. The 28-year-old actress, who plays Fiona Gallagher on the Showtime series Shameless, was on Tuesday spotted wearing a sparkling ring on her ring finger while standing on a sidewalk in New York City, as seen in a picture posted by Us Weekly. "Emmy is not engaged," the actress' rep told E! News. Rossum does have a boyfriend—Sam Esmail, who directed her in the romantic comedy film, Comet, which was released on Dec. 5. The two were photographed sitting courtside at the New York Knicks-Dallas Mavericks game at Madison Square Garden. The actress was not wearing a ring. Rossum has been married before: She and music »
Shameless fun or something more? Emmy Rossum set off engagement speculation when she was spotted with what looked like a giant diamond ring on her left hand — but as with a lot of other things in Hollywood, appearances can be deceiving. On Tuesday, Dec. 16, a makeup-free Rossum, 28, was photographed shopping in New York City with the dazzling sparkler on her finger. The Shameless actress and her boyfriend, writer Sam Esmail, visited jewelry stores L’Etoile Royale and Fred Leighton, where they appeared to be getting the [...] »

Sometimes great TV comedy makes you laugh so hard you cry. And sometimes it just makes you cry.
If one thing became entirely clear in 2014, it’s that traditional descriptors like “sit-com” are so last century. Defining what makes a small screen laffer is no longer cut and dry. Digital platforms like Netflix and Amazon are following in the footsteps of industry innovators like HBO and Showtime and shattering the barrier between drama and comedy — and the obvious winner in this genre revolution is the viewing audience.
That doesn’t mean there aren’t great examples of the classic multi-camera comedy format still on the air (our list includes two of them), or that trendy single camera shows can’t be non-stop joke machines (we’d argue both “Veep” and “Silicon Valley” place laughs over pathos in every episode). But let’s also thank the shows pushing the envelope to make TV comedy a riskier, »

The start of awards season can feel like Groundhog Day. Wednesday morning, the SAG Awards nominees. You go to bed and wake up and it's Thursday: the Golden Globes have been announced. The dawn skies are dotted with the fleecy phantoms of shiny trophies. But the game and the stakes all get bigger with the Globes, awarded annually by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. Commentators instantly noticed the absence of Angelina Jolie, described this week in The New York Times as entering the awards season "like a queen" and being borne "on a tsunami of expectation." Her attendants will have »

The Golden Globe nominations were announced this morning, continuing this week's exciting slew of award nods after Wednesday's SAG Award nominees. There are way more movie nominations to go around this time, what with both the drama and musical/comedy categories, so even tohough there are a lot of the same names seen at the SAGs, there are still some new entrants to award season, like Selma and Big Eyes (though still no American Sniper or Unbroken). There are some surprises in the TV categories, however; while there are lots of repeat names from years past (and this year's Emmys), it's exciting to see Jane the Virgin (and its star, Gina Rodriguez) and Transparent up for Globes! The Globes air Jan. 11, so see everyone who's nominated here.

The Hollywood Foreign Press announced the nominees for the 2015 Golden Globe Awards earlier this morning. The awards honor the work that has been done in film and television, and the winners will be announced January 11th, 2015 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.
One of my favorite films of the year, Birdman, leads the pack with seven nominations in the film categories. Then one of my favorite series, Fargo, leads the TV nominations with five. There were a ton of great films and TV shows this last year, and it's good to see many of my favorites being honored for their greatness.

The Golden Globes! Everyone’s favorite Almost-the-Oscars ceremony. The 72nd Annual nominations were unveiled Thursday morning by presenters Kate Beckinsale, Jeremy Piven, Paula Patton, Peter Krause and Hollywood Foreign Press Association President Theo Kingma.
The HFPA went in big on Boyhood, The Imitation Game, Birdman, and The Theory of Everything, placing Birdman into the Comedy/Musical category where it is likely to clean up. Missing from the bunch are heavy hitters like Angelina Jolie’s Unbroken, Clint Eastwood’s American Sniper and only a single nomination for Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar.
On the TV front, it was a big morning for Transparent, Orange is the New Black, The Affair, and House of Cards, while snubbing Emmy favorites Modern Family, The Big Bang Theory, as well as hits like The Walking Dead, The Americans, Mad Men or the final season of Boardwalk Empire.

Showtime's "The Affair" and Netflix's "Orange Is The New Black" were among several TV shows receiving three nods as nominations for the 2015 Golden Globes were announced on Thursday (December 11) morning. Also receiving three nominations on the series side were CBS' "The Good Wife" and Netflix's "House of Cards," though all of the shows competing for series crowns are behind FX's "Fargo" and HBO's "True Detective," which earned five and four nominations respectively and are heading for an epic showdown in the Movie/Miniseries field. On the Best Television Series - Drama side, "The Affair" will be going up against "Downton Abbey," "Game of Thrones," "The Good Wife" and "House of Cards," with "Game of Thrones" the only one from this group not to earn a single individual nomination. "The Affair" star Dominic West is up for Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series - Drama against fellow Showtimer Liev Schreiber of "Ray Donovan, »

This morning, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association announced their nominations for the 72nd Annual Golden Globes. Again we have Birdman at the head of the pack, earning seven nominations (all categories it was eligible for), including Best Picture – Comedy/Musical, Best Director, Best Actor – Comedy/Musical, Best Supporting Actor, Best Supporting Actress, Best Screenplay, and Best Original Score. Boyhood and The Imitation Game followed behind with five nods apiece, which included Best Picture – Drama, Best Supporting Actress, and Best Screenplay.
There weren’t any particularly surprising inclusions in this morning’s nominations, as nearly everything we expected to be here made it in. What’s perhaps most surprising of all is that Angelina Jolie’s war drama Unbroken, a film that was expected to fetch at least a little recognition, was completely shut out. Nor did we see the music drama Whiplash take more than its most expected nod for Best Supporting Actor. »

Kate Beckinsale, Jeremy Piven, Peter Krause, and Paula Patton all got up early, like most of us movie buffs, for the big reveal! The 2015 Golden Globe Nominations! The usual suspects triumphed at the nominations such as "Boyhood," "Foxcatcher," "Selma," "The Imitation Game," and "The Theory of Everything." Missing was one of my favorite films of the year, "Whiplash" but it got one nod for J.K. Simmons' performance.
Also missing in the big categories is Christopher Nolan's "Interstellar" which only received one nomination, Best Original Score. Watch the film to get kudos from the Academy in the technical categories.
We'll find out the winners of the 2015 Golden Globe Awards on Sunday, January 11, at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. Tina Fey and Amy Poehler will return as our hosts of the evening and it will be broadcast live on NBC.
Here's the complete list of nominees of the 2015 Golden Globe Awards: »
Now this is immaculate: the CW’s drought of kudos traction has been broken in a big way this year with the Golden Globe comedy series nom for its buzzy frosh series “Jane the Virgin,” as well as a comedy actress bid for star Gina Rodriguez.
The noms mark the first Globe mentions for the CW since its debut in 2006.
Globe voters lived up to their reputation for giving important credibility boosts to young series. In addition to “Jane the Virgin,” voters showered Showtime’s hot freshman drama “The Affair” with three key noms, for drama series and acting bids for stars Ruth Wilson and Dominic West. The Globes attention was particularly important for “Affair” as the show came up empty on Wednesday in the SAG Award nominations, a surprise given West’s stature as an alum of “The Wire.”

The Golden Globes spread the wealth among this year’s films and TV series when nominations were announced this morning. The group that picked last year’s Best Picture Oscar winner 12 Years A Slave has tapped IFC Films’ Boyhood, Sony Classics’ Foxcatcher, the Weinsteins’ The Imitation Game, Paramount’s Selma and Focus Features’ The Theory Of Everything in its top drama race, with most everything going to form in the major acting categories.
The Best Motion Picture Comedy race includes Fox Searchlight’s Birdman, the Alexander Gonzales Inarritu-directed pic that led the way yesterday at the SAG Awards. It did so this morning, too, with seven nominations followed by five apiece from Boyhood and Imitation Game. That helped give Searchlight a leading 12 noms total — it also had Wes Anderson’s The Grand Budapest Hotel, which also scored a Best Comedy/Musical nom as did Disney’s Into The Woods, the »
