Film Independent Spirit Awards 2015 Live-Blog

21 February 2015 1:55 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

HitFix Award Gurus Kris Tapley and Greg Ellwood are both attending Saturday's Film Independent Spirit Awards on Saturday (February 21) afternoon in Santa Monica and they left me to handle HitFix's Independent Spirit Awards Winners & Losers list.  And once I'm watching Saturday's show, I might as well be live-blogging Saturday's show as preparation for Sunday's Oscars live-blog, especially since is the last time that "Birdman" and "Boyhood" will be going head-to-head for Best Picture (along with "Selma" and "Whiplash") before the Academy Awards. So follow along and say "Hi" in the comments below... And remember that Saturday's show, hosted by Kristen Bell and Fred Armisen, is airing live on IFC, not that obnoxious tape-delayed thing they used to do! 1:50 p.m. Pt. The show hasn't started, but if you're following the Winners list, you know that "Birdman" has already won for for cinematography, while "Whiplash" won for editing, both results I can accept. »

The ‘Bob’s Burgers’ cast stars in Sleater-Kinney’s ‘A New Wave’ music video

20 February 2015 7:58 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

I’m trying to figure out which kooky TV show, Bob’s Burgers or Portlandia, has the bigger cult following right now. Regardless, the mash-up of the two via Sleater-Kinney’s latest music video for “A New Wave” is inspired, turning Carrie Brownstein, Corin Tucker, and Janet Weiss into the goofy cartoon characters that classic Simpsons would’ve been all over years ago. “A New Wave” is one of the best tracks on their latest release, No Cities to Love, an early favorite for Best Album of 2015. Watch the video above.

We're back with another video round-up, this time featuring two new clips from The Lazarus Effect, the debut trailer for the upcoming SXSW Midnighter selection Pod, and a cute and creepy look at Zombie Cats from Mars.

Eat Your Heart Out: 7 Celebrity Cookbooks Worth Whipping Up Recipes From

16 February 2015 5:50 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Gwyneth Paltrow is coming out with a third cookbook. Let us repeat: a third cookbook. Does one need yet another outlet for the actress to remind us that her life is far more put together than ours (conscious uncoupling not withstanding)? More importantly, do we really need another batch of recipes supposedly time-tested by celebrities?

It turns out, yes, we do. While there are plenty of cookbooks by celeb chefs, many of whom appear on your TV screen nightly, recently there haven't been that many food tomes by actors and singers. Maybe they’re busy doing other things (like acting or singing) or don't think we'll believe they can cook for themselves let alone us. In fact, Paltrow was quite humble when she admitted to Rachael Ray: "I really love doing it. It’s such an awesome side project that I get to do, and I feel really lucky that people bought the first one and »

Portlandia Renewed For Two More Seasons

10 February 2015 12:46 PM, PST | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

I knew you think you’re a fan of the best show on television, but unless you mean Portlandia, you’re just fooling yourself.

Well, I may be caught up in the excitement, and thus prone to overstating things a bit, But!

It is certainly one of the best shows on (and I mean the top three or four), and this is a good time to commit yourself to it, and binge the previous season, because you know it will be around.

The Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein show has always stood out as not only hilarious, but inventive, and frequently uncomfortable. As the seasons have moved on, we’ve gotten a fascinating look at the characters that hail from the soggy northwest, without sacrificing any of the genius behind the show.

Stay tuned, another few weeks, and more seasons may get ordered.
