A happy 56th birthday to the Queen Herself. I was out for drinks with two friends the other night (Hi, Sue & Jordan!) and somehow the conversation turned to Madonna -- I can't remember how it got there -- and the Best Actress for Evita Golden Globe was discussed. 'Her one shot at an Oscar' ...but then of course she wasn't nominated. (1996 was an overstuffed year in Best Actress of course but even if it hadn't been, The Academy probably would have resisted.) But of course it wasn't her only shot at Oscar. They've snubbed her repeatedly in that Best Original Song category though two songs she sang but didn't write won the actual gold man ("Sooner or Later" from Dick Tracy by Stephen Sondheim and "You Must Love Me" from Evita by Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber).
Her original songs from the movies in preference order:

Kim Kardashian and step-bro Brandon Jenner had an illicit make-out session ... so intimated Brody Jenner, but in reality we've learned there's less here than meets the eye.Our Kardashian archival sources tell us ... the "kiss" went down when Kim was around 11 and Brandon was 12. Fact is ... Kris and Bruce weren't even married at the time, but they were dating.The kiss was part of a Truth or Dare game, and it was more like a peck on the lips. »

The 23-year-old media graduate was up for nomination alongside five other guys in the house as part of the latest Power Trip twist, but was evicted after receiving the majority of the public vote.
"I think a lot of them are really likeable in the house," he explained.
"I shot myself in the foot this week... some people didn't get my sarcasm and I guess it can come across as bitchy."
"Oh do we have to?" he said as the footage began to play.
Having watched the exchange back, »
"I'm out of my comfort zone," he said. "I don't really like most of the people in this house... I don't really like the cliques and the dynamic."
Suggesting that the female housemates are scared of Helen, he said: "That's why Kim [Kisselovich] and Jale [Karaturp] are friends with her. Not because they have genuine relationships with her... or genuine common interests... They're afraid of her."

When Matthew questioned why she was getting rude when he just didn't want to talk about sex, Helen replied: "It's a joke. He sat back saying, 'This is why I don't play' - don't f**king play then! Why are you playing? If you're not playing, why are you contributing with your f**king mouth?"
David Javerbaum, who was a former head writer on The Daily Show, will write the script based on his pitch to Summit Entertainment, which follows five United Nations delegates who embark on a road trip to find one of their lost lovers. No details were given for Ken Jeong's character, and it isn't known if Steve Carell plans on starring as well, or if he will only produce.
The project will mark Ken Jeong's first leading role in a studio project, following memorable turns in The Hangover trilogy, Transformers: Dark of the Moon and Pain & Gain, along with voice roles in Despicable Me 2, Turbo and the upcoming The Penguins of Madagascar.

This week's "Ask Drew" covered some ground, which is exactly how we want to do it. You guys hit the video team with a ton of questions, and every single one got read by someone. I was worried that after the first episode, this was going to turn into some sort of oddball game of "Truth Or Dare" each time. I should have trusted the awesome video team here, though. They selected the questions, and I saw them for the first time as we began recording the episode. You gave us some great valuable feedback last time, and we've made some small adjustments to the format and the staging this time. No more sealed envelopes. We let things run a little longer. I love that you guys sent in "Movie God" options. It makes me so happy that you enjoy playing it, and then it makes me suffer when I »

Johnny Depp is opening up to Ellen DeGeneres! The actor stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show this week to play a little game of Truth or Dare. First off, DeGeneres asked Depp if he likes playing with dolls. "Not as much as I used to," he said as the audience laughed. "When my daughter was little, I played a lot of Barbie. Took me a while to shake...I guess it was when I got caught by myself with the Barbies is when it did it." "That's illegal in a lot of places," DeGeneres quipped. "This is California," Depp replied. Next, DeGeneres asked him if he sleeps naked. "Technically I've slept in alleys," Depp said, adding, "So not always in the nude but »
The Following Episode 212
Written By: Lizzie Mickery
Directed By: Marcos Siega
Original Airdate: 7 April 2014
In This Episode…
Ryan is a bundle of emotions, staring at Claire. Once he accepts that she is there, alive and well, she gets down to what she is really there for: she wants to finish this by killing Joe. Her “brilliant” plan is that they can do it together. “I am the last thing he will see coming - we can surprise him!”
Pastor Tanner is doing an interview with Carrie, and Joe watches it, growing obsessively enraged. He rails against the hypocrisy of religion. When asked point-blank by Emma, Joe tells her, “No, I don’t believe in any god. I made that mistake once before, and I won’t do it again. Religion is only good for one thing: power.”
Joe’s next move is to send a van full of his »

On one hand, I’m not sure Girls needs fixing — which seems like an appropriately ambivalent way to start an essay about fixing Girls, since Girls is a thing about which few opinions are uncomplicated. When it debuted in 2012, the HBO twentysomething drama was variously hailed as “revolutionary” and “not as good as you think,” the standard point-counterpoint reaction to Important TV Shows.
The best things you could say about it were very »

Girls Season 3: Episode 6 – “Free Snacks”
Written by Paul Simms
Directed by Jamie Babbit
Airs Sundays at 10 Pm on HBO
In “Free Snacks”, Girls gets to flex its comedy muscles, and writer Paul Simms sticks hilarious words in the mouths of Hannah (Lena Dunham) and Shoshanna (Zosia Mamet). But he also crafts those two characters’ overall arcs along with giving Mamet rapid fire dialogue that would make her father smile and letting Dunham emote about food and writing, mainly food. This episode is a lot of fun, and good things happen for Hannah, Adam (Adam Driver), and Ray (Alex Karpovsky). However, like most episodes of Girls, “Free Snacks” has a dark lining, mostly having to do with Hannah feeling like a corporate sell-out and Ray and Marnie’s (Allison Williams) mutual loneliness.

"Girls" returned for Season 3 on Sunday (Jan. 12) and, after a shaky second season that tended to go dark and lacked in humor, the HBO series gave lapsed fans plenty of proof that Season 3 is the time to get back on the train to Brooklyn.
1. The comedy is back
Look, first and foremost, the back-to-back episodes were hysterical. Whereas most of Season 2 felt as if it was an exercise in depressing viewers, this premiere brought the funny. The writing was punched up with punchlines, as well as observational moments that were just Lol-worthy. Hannah (Lena Dunham) and her editor eating those chocolate cups? Great. Marnie (Allison Williams) and the taco incident? Hilarious. Shoshanna's (Zosia Mamet) Truth or Dare game with Adam (Adam Driver) and Hannah in the hotel room? Just perfect.
2. Rita Wilson as Marnie's mom
Finally, we understand why Marnie is the neurotic mess that she is. Rita Wilson was spot-on as her testy, »
