During awards season, actors, screenwriters, directors and others working in film are feted at near-constant festivals and awards shows. On Dec. 5, however, it was all about the kids.
The Children’s Defense Fund-California hosted their 23rd Beat the Odds Awards at the Beverly Hills Hotel, awarding $10,000 college scholarships to five high school students who have overcome adversity in their personal lives to become successful in school and extra-curriculars. Jennifer Garner, Conan O’Brien, Reese Witherspoon, J.J. Abrams and more joined in to honor the scholars.
“What I really love about this organization and this particular event is that it is truly all about the kids,” Witherspoon said before introducing one of the honorees. “For example, many of you will notice if you look at the back of your chair, there is no gift bag hanging there, nor will you find one waiting for you at the valet.”
Witherspoon smiled as she then described that, »

Even though Ron Burgundy wasn't able to "class up" Espn's SportsCenter yesterday, the network plans on broadcasting more footage of the "interview" it shot of Will Ferrell's character grilling Denver Bronco Peyton Manning for Espn the Magazine. The segment will air prior to the December 18th release of Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues.
Ron Burgundy Uncensored: Inside the New Issue of Rolling Stone
The channel had previously used the chat – in which Burgundy praises Manning for all of the success he's achieved "without a mustache" – to tease Ferrell's in-character SportsCenter appearance, »
When Jim Parsons makes an appearance on "Conan," it doesn't take much effort for them to get there because it turns out his day job, "The Big Bang Theory," is just feet away from "Conan's" studio. That made it easy for the actor and Conan O'Brien to kidnap a fan from the audience to invade the set.
One short golf cart ride later, and the trio were walking to Sheldon and Leonard's apartment, where Simon Helberg happened to be. Parsons wanted to make sure the fan got something from the set, so naturally the best option was Helberg's shirt. Meanwhile, Conan snagged a beer from the refrigerator. It's comforting to know there's real beer in there. »
Will Ferrell has been taking his "Anchorman" character Ron Burgundy everywhere lately -- he gave hair product advice on "Conan," he stopped by a North Dakota news broadcast. His latest target? "The Dan Patrick Show."
Check out these clips. Our favorites are the one where he does legendary sports calls, like Jack Buck calling Kirk Gibson's famous home run or Doug Davis calling Doug Flutie's Boston College hail mary -- with his patented Burgundy-ness, and the one at the very bottom where he fields a call from Champ Kind (David Koechner).
They talk about Kind's rejected sports catchphrases -- "Garbanzo beans!" and "Lemon pepper chicken!," which is a dish he loves but it just didn't catch on with the fans. Hee.
"Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues" opens nationwide on Dec. 18.
Jim Parsons spent a lot of time practicing how to spank co-star Mayim Bialik's bottom for a recent episode of "The Big Bang Theory," and opened up about the experience on "Conan" on Thursday (Dec. 5).
In the episode, Bialik's character sneakily figures out a way to get physical with Parsons' Sheldon: by getting spanked. "She wants physical attention from Sheldon that she's not getting. So she has to loop him into ways to give it to her," Parsons says. "So she behaves badly and his didactic personality is, 'Well, you must be punished.' So he has to spank her."
Parsons reveals that shooting the scene was next to impossible because he kept bursting out laughing. "She was bent over me on this couch, take after take, being whooped. Yeah," Parsons says. "It was several takes in before you realize, 'Oh, she's a person.'"

Most women would be proud to be featured as the "Best Butt Ever" on a magazine cover -- but, not Evangeline Lilly!"The Hobbit" star sat down with Conan O'Brien on Wednesday, where she opened up about her Women's Health cover, a cover she's not very happy with at all."They go, 'Best. Butt. Ever.' and they have an arrow going to your butt," Conan said, holding up the cover. "I'm just curious -- is that something they tell you before you do the shoot?""No!," Lilly exclaimed. "Do you think I would have done the shoot if they said, 'Oh, by the way, we're gonna say 'Best Butt Ever!' and put a big arrow to your behind?""You know, every woman is after a kind of classy image, I didn't want T&A on my cover. It's a women's magazine, not Maxim." It's not the worst thing that could have happened, »

Evangeline Lilly doesn't like the attention her derriere is receiving. The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug star stopped by Conan on Wednesday, Dec. 4 and revealed that she is not too pleased with her recent Women's Health magazine cover. "They go, 'Best. Butt. Ever.' and they have an arrow going to your butt," Conan O'Brien said, as he whipped out the mag. The photograph features Lilly showing off her enviable backside, while sporting a T-shirt and underwear. "And I'm just curious, is that something that they tell you before you do the shoot? Did you know that they were going to do that?" "No!" the 34-year-old Canadian shrieked. "You think I would have »
Espn's director of communications David Scott has explained that it will not be possible for Burgundy's appearance to take place because of the breaking news that football star Jameis Winston will not face sexual assault charges following a highly-publicised investigation.
Scott said in a statement: "Ron Burgundy's scheduled Thurs. appearance on @SportsCenter has been cancelled in light of the potential implications of any news from the State Attorney's press conference in [Florida].
"As of this time, there is no reschedule date for Ron Burgundy."

Learning your lines for a movie role is one thing, but when you have to learn a made up language in order to read those lines, things get a bit crazier. Evangeline Lilly stopped by "Conan" to talk about "The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug," when the topic of speaking Elvish came up.
Lilly says she finds the language very sensual, but it might just be that way when coming out of her mouth. She throws out a couple phrases to host Conan O'Brien, but when he tries them out they don't sound nearly as sexy.
Lilly also talked about being labeled as having the "best butt ever" by Women's Health magazine. Evangeline says she didn't know they were going to do that on her cover and isn't super excited about it. "I didn't want T and A on my cover," she says. "It's a women's magazine, it's not Maxim. »
Netflix's critical hit "Orange Is the New Black" picked up four nominations for the 2014 Writers Guild Awards -- where it's entered as a comedy series.
The show (and its cast) is entered in the drama field for some other upcoming awards shows, including the Golden Globes and the Screen Actors Guild Awards. It's a bit of a tweener show, mixing both comedy and drama, but as there are no "dramedy" awards anywhere, it's a comedy for writing purposes.
The full list of series nominees is below. You can go here to see all the WGA TV and radio nominees, including those for news and children's programming. The awards are scheduled for Feb. 1.

Ron Burgundy won't be telling Bristol, Connecticut, to stay classy today – Will Ferrell's appearance as America's favorite anchorman on Espn's SportsCenter has been postponed due to a scheduled news conference regarding the sexual assault allegations leveled against Florida State University quarterback Jameis Winston, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Is it “fish and shrimp” or “fish and shrimps”? That’s the question bedeviling Conan O’Brien as the late night host auditions for a role as International House of Pancakes pitchman. In a segment on Wednesday’s “Conan,” the comic gets a crash course on the intricacies of auditioning for television commercials.

Butt seriously… Evangeline Lilly didn't really appreciate her "Best Butt Ever" cover of Women's Health's upcoming January/February 2014 issue. The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug star, 34, stopped by Conan O'Brien's Conan show on Wednesday, Dec. 4 and admitted that she was unhappy with the mag. O'Brien, who broached the topic with Lilly, gave a brief description of the fitness magazine's cover: "They go, 'Best. Butt. Ever.' and they have an arrow going to your butt," he said, holding up the issue in question. "I'm just curious -- [...] »
NBC is likely to lose money with tonight’s debut of The Sound of Music Live!, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Instead, they’re hoping the production will do well enough to sell plenty of DVDs and soundtracks (cast recording?) and to be broadcast in the years to come at Christmas time.
Yesterday, Ryan Murphy tweeted:

Will Ferrell has been noticeably absent from promotional events for “Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues,” because Ron Burgundy has taken over his body. Since Paramount launched it’s impressively-integrated publicity campaign — beginning with a series of largely improvised Dodge Durango commercials featuring the newsman selling the 2013 model — Burgundy has been turned into a Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream flavor, issued Trick-or-Treating advice, warned against piracy, presented an award at MTV’s EMAs, released a book called “Let Me Off at the Top! My Classy Life and Other Musings,” signed it for lucky fans in Los Angeles, appeared on “Conan” (again), anchored an actual. »

Many of the big late night programs--Conan, Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel Live, etc.--have thriving YouTube channels, where highlights from previous episodes are posted for the world to see. Pete Holmes, who recently began hosting The Pete Holmes Show on TBS, doesn't have quite the same following (yet), but he's the best example of a TV host who is treating YouTube not as an ancillary platform but a complementary one. Holmes owes much is his fame to the Internet. Before he became a regular TV host, his most well-known acting gig was his leading role in Badman, the series of hysterical Batman parodies released by CollegeHumor (fun fact: he is also the voice of the E-Trade baby.) Since taking to TV, Holmes has continued to include plenty of internet-friendly sketches. The Ex-Men series, where Holmes plays an obnoxious Professor X who fires his most worthless mutant associates, »

The Kardashian family’s annual Christmas card was more puzzling than ever this year, but Conan O’Brien figured out what the reality TV brood was really trying to say. The extravagant photo spread features Kim, Kourtney, Khloe, and mom Kris Jenner — along with Kylie and Kendall Jenner — posing in long, black gowns, while poor Bruce Jenner is trapped in a tube. See video: ‘Keeping Up With the Kardashians’ Season 9 Tackles Kris Jenner, Khloe, Kimye Marital Drama Some generous outlets, like People, are calling photographer David Lachapelle’s creation a commentary on the constant media circus surrounding the family.
