Six weeks after responding to what he thought would be a routine lewd conduct call, Los Angeles Police Department Sgt. Jim Parker is now in a world of trouble. “I've been placed in what's called the ‘penalty box.’ I can't wear a uniform, I can't be on patrol and I can have no civilian contact,” Parker told TheWrap Tuesday evening in a wide-ranging interview. The 25-year Lapd veteran is currently under investigation by the department's internal affairs division as a result of the Sept. 11 arrest of “Django Unchained” actress Daniele Watts.

Daniele Watts Charged With Lewd Conduct
Watts and Lucas were both charged with lewd conduct for allegedly having sex in the front seat of her car while parked outside CBS Studios. According to reports, witnesses working in an office nearby claim they saw Watts straddling her boyfriend with her breasts exposed on the afternoon of Sept. 11.
Watts, an African American actress, created a stir in September when she claimed that the police detained her unfairly because she was making out with her white boyfriend. “Today I was handcuffed and detained by 2 police officers from the Studio City Police Department after refusing after refusing to agree that I had done something wrong by showing affection, fully clothed, in a public place,” Watts told her Facebook fans at the time. »
Danièle Watts — the Django Unchained actress who claimed she was handcuffed for “kissing while black” — has been charged with a misdemeanor charge of lewd conduct after allegedly having sex with her boyfriend in a car in L.A. last month. While Watts initially said her detention was the result of racial profiling, TMZ released an audio recording and photos of the incident shortly after that appeared to corroborate police allegations — basically, it gets tricky. "We were sent a collection of evidence from law enforcement and after review, our prosecutors felt filing was appropriate," spokesman Frank Mateljan told the New York Daily News today. If convicted, both Watts and her boyfriend, Brian James Lucas, face a maximum of six months in jail and a $1,000 fine. »

Warner Bros. just gave its new digital division a name and unveiled its first development slate to go along with it. Blue Ribbon Content will focus on delivering short-form, live-action series under the guidance of Sam Register who assumed the role of President of Warner Bros. Animation and Warner Digital Series back in April. Blue Ribbon’s got a lot going on, but the highlights include a new Mortal Kombat series, an adaptation of the comic Static and a new rendition of the cult classic Critters as well. Hit the jump for more on all of them. Via THR, here’s what Register had to say about what Blue Ribbon’s got coming up: "We are tremendously excited about Blue Ribbon Content's initial slate of development projects, and we are incredibly fortunate to have the opportunity to work with such a talented group of writers and producers on projects that they feel exceptionally passionate about. »

With this year’s lead actor race heating up to be one of the most crowded ever, it’s a little strange to look over candidates for supporting actor and see a lot of empty space.
Which is not to say there aren’t some amazing performances in the mix. J.K. Simmons (“Whiplash”), Mark Ruffalo (“Foxcatcher”) and Edward Norton (“Birdman”) are considered locks for a nod, and all are outstanding in wildly different and breathtaking performances.
Beyond that, there are a lot of great performances but few sure things. Ethan Hawke delivers beautifully subtle work in the beloved “Boyhood,” and seems a good bet to land his second acting nomination. Robert Duvall’s name has been bandied about for “The Judge,” but that has more to do with him being Robert Duvall than praise for the performance. The rest is attributed to movies that have yet to screen or truly build buzz. »
