There is a thin line between love and hate. And now that we got that cliché line out of the way, it's time for another round in our annual competition celebrating the best and not-so-best moments of the past TV season with E! Online's Golden Remote Awards! But back to love and hate. Today's category features a little bit of both, because we want to know who had the best fight and which duo had the best kiss of the 2012-2013 TV season. Smooches and slaps is what we're all about today. Can anyone claim a better first kiss than Nick (Jake Johnson) and Jess (Zooey Deschanel) on New Girl? Or a better fight than The Vampire Diaries' Nina Dobrev fighting herself as both Elena and Katherine? »

In today’s ‘ugh’ news, TMZ says that Charlie Sheen is trying to get the faboo Selma Blair fired from their sitcom Anger Management after Blair complained about her co-star being late. Remember how Sheen was on his best behavior when he was trying to sell the show to a network? That’s over now.
Like I needed more reason to be looking forward to the return of New Girl.

Showtime is giving viewers a tease of new drama "Masters of Sex," premiering this fall with the return of "Homeland" Season 3.
The historical drama stars Michael Sheen ("The Twilight Saga") and Lizzy Caplan ("New Girl," "True Blood") as famed sex research pioneers Masters and Johnson and promises a detailed look at their personal and professional lives. It sounds like the perfect mix of classy drama with a "premium cable" twist (i.e. no need to shy away from the racy stuff).
From the looks of this teaser the show seems to have a light touch. How will that play paired with the intensity of "Homeland"? Showtimes seems confident enough to give it the coveted slot. »
Lynn Shelton, like many mumblecore-leaning directors, is quite prolific. In the past five years, she’s put out four movies (with a fifth currently shooting) while maintaining a solid TV directing career, with episodes of Mad Men and New Girl under her belt. Her most recent offering is Touchy Feely. In it, Rosemarie DeWitt (who starred in Shelton’s last film, Your Sister’s Sister) plays a free-spirited massage therapist; however, there’s a small hiccup: the human touch begins to gross her out, hard. Ellen Page plays DeWitt’s niece who falls for and tries to seduce her aunt’s boyfriend (Scoot McNairy). Allison Janney plays a new-age therapist, which is super-perfect casting. It opens in theaters on September 6, a great time for a respite from the summer movies’ carnage. »

When "Friends" came to an end after 10 seasons and 236 episodes in May 2004, 52.5 million viewers tuned in to say goodbye to Monica Geller (Courteney Cox), Chandler Bing (Matthew Perry), Rachel Green (Jennifer Aniston), Ross Geller (David Schwimmer), Phoebe Buffay (Lisa Kudrow) and Joey Tribbiani (Matt LeBlanc).
The numbers "Friends" brought in -- not only for its series finale -- are difficult, if not impossible to achieve today and no one is more painfully aware of that fact than Matthew Perry, whose latest comedy effort, NBC's "Go On," was canceled after its first season in May. So ... why did "Friends" end? Perry is now asking himself that same question.

Midnight's Children is based on a novel by Salman Rushdie, who also narrated, wrote the screenplay and executive produced this film by Deepa Mehta. Canadian director Mehta is known for her emotional elements trilogy (Earth, Fire and Water) depicting the lives of women in her native India. This new film aspires to be epic in scope, and lacks the intimacy and depth of her earlier works.
The movie's title refers to the children who were born at the stroke of midnight on the date of partition in 1947, when Pakistan and India split. Because of their auspicious birthdate, these kids have powers which cannot be understood by others. The story is told by Saleem (played in the last hour by Satya Bhabha, New Girl) -- from the first meeting of his grandparents in 1917 Kashmir through India's 30th anniversary in 1977.

This story first appeared in The Hollywood Reporter's June 13 Emmy stand-alone issue. Perhaps it was the vacation-inspired environs of the Bungalow at the Fairmont hotel in Santa Monica that put the performers in such a carefree state of mind. Or it could be that each of the comedy actors who assembled for a candid conversation about their bizarre livelihoods was so different from the other, their union played out like a well-cast ensemble performance: The Network Veteran: Matthew Perry, 43 (NBC's departed series Go On); The New Guy: Jake Johnson, 35 (Fox's New Girl); The Sketch

Brenda Song's love life may be back on a high note. The New Girl guest star, 25, sported a smile on Tuesday alongside her ex-fiancé, Miley Cyrus's brother Trace Cyrus, 24. The pair - whose broken engagement was announced exactly one year from the date they were spotted together again - were photographed inside of a 7-Eleven in Studio City, Calif., where they purchased snacks and rented a movie. Just a few days before their documented reunion, Song posted three days in a row of Tweets, including," "Don't give up on someone you can't go a full day without thinking about, »
Mike O’Malley might well be the poster boy for how roles come to define actors — for better or for worse.
O’Malley found his work slammed by critics in his ill-fated sitcom “The Mike O’Malley Show” and the long-running comedy “Yes, Dear.” Yet when he was offered a guest role by Ryan Murphy, who believed the actor would make the perfect blue-collar dad for gay teen Curt in “Glee,” it turned his career around.
Call it bad juju or good actors stuck in bad circumstances, but many talented actors have found themselves jinxed in their TV careers. But giving a good performance as a guest actor can often switch that luck.
This season, O’Malley scored another strong guest gig as mobster Nicky Augustine on the critically acclaimed FX drama “Justified.”

The official ballots for the 2013 Primetime Emmy Awards are now available online, and while they won't tell us who's going to be nominated, they can tell us who won't be.
We scoured the ballots to dig up the notable omissions (if you were hoping for an Arya Stark nomination, better luck next year) and surprising inclusions (go get your directing nomination, Jennifer Love Hewitt!).
Every ABC Family original series (including "The Lying Game," "Baby Daddy" and "The Secret Life of the American Teenager") is submitted for consideration as either Outstanding Comedy or Outstanding Drama except for the network's most outstanding show: "Bunheads." Huh?
Star Sutton Foster submitted herself in the Comedy Actress category, but "Bunheads" is otherwise Mia from the ballots (even in technical categories like casting, main title design and costume design).
Other shows completely out of contention are more understandable, though Starz's canceled "Boss" earned enough »
Drunk acting (or, more technically, acting drunk) is harder than it looks -- just ask Jake Johnson, who plays the hilarious and often tipsy Nick Miller on New Girl. He's one of the many drunks who turns up in the supercut we've put together for you as part of our weeklong look back at the 2012-13 TV season. We're serving it up to you now, in all its slurring, slurping glory, just in time for happy hour! »
Zooey Deschanel played the role of caring girlfriend this week ... when her boyfriend was wheeled out of an L.A. hospital with bandages all over his face ... but don't worry, he's gonna be fine. The "New Girl" star helped her screenwriter Bf Jamie Linden out of his wheelchair and into a waiting Tesla outside of the hospital Tuesday ... sparking concern that something was seriously wrong. But Zooey's rep tells TMZ it looks worse than it is -- explaining, »

The dancers try their hardest, but choreographer Sonya Tayeh has some words of encouragement: Try harder or die.
So You Think You Can Dance‘s Vegas rounds give us roughly the same amount of drama as American Idol‘s Hollywood week, but the stakes are actually higher because everyone in Vegas is extraordinary in at least one form of dance. On Idol, there’s always a chance some moron who squawked an Ok version of Jason Mraz’s “I’m Yours” won a ticket to Hollywood, you know? On Sytycd, everyone is an astounding talent — which is why it’s sort of disappointing when unqualified guest judges like Hannah Simone from New Girl and Jason Derulo of “JaSON DeruloooOOooOO” fame get a say in the proceedings. Simone was honestly introduced as “a dance enthusiast.” It would’ve been more bad-ass if she were “an anti-dance curmudgeon” or something more threatening. »

"It felt like holding it off any longer, it would feel like we were playing with the audience," she says in the video (at the 10:10 mark). "It felt organic, and it was the right time to do it. I don't really believe in the 'they kiss and the spark of the show is gone.' I think that when people come together, it creates so many more opportunities for story and conflict."
She went on to say that getting the will-they-won't-they couple together "really helped our show." "They're just really good at kissing and stuff. It's really fun to watch them make out a lot, »

Show business traditionally hasn’t been kind to mature actresses, even those with Emmys, Oscars and Tonys tucked under their collective belts.
Often, roles that are offered tend to be less than challenging, making it easy for the public to forget just how good these actresses are until they get cast in meaty guest star spots.
In her first appearance on HBO’s “The Newsroom,” Jane Fonda’s conservative cable news channel CEO Leona Lansing — a hybrid name that melds Leona Helmsley and Sherry Lansing — commandingly prevails in a confrontation with Sam Waterston, underscoring the gravitas Fonda brings to the role.
“I’ve rarely been as challenged by a writer as I’ve been with Aaron Sorkin,” says the Oscar and Emmy-winning actress, who will return to “The Newsroom” next season with a new twist to her character, which she describes as “Rupert Murdoch marinated in a little Ted Turner. »
