“It’s a Long Way Down The Holiday Road!”

Rounding out the cast are Chris Hemsworth (the “Thor” films) in the role of Stone Crandall, Rusty’s irritatingly successful brother-in-law; Charlie Day (the “Horrible Bosses” films), who plays a river rafting guide; and Skyler Gisondo (“Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb,” “Hard Sell”) and Steele Stebbins »

Miss Ohio's Crazy Ventriloquist Act Needs to Be Seen to Be Believed

15 September 2014 8:36 AM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Miss New York's Pitch Perfect-inspired performance of "Happy" may have helped her secure her Miss America win, but Miss Ohio's talent performance was really something to behold. Contestant Mackenzie Bart strayed from the typical pageant-type talent performances to do a delightfully zany ventriloquist rendition of "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious" with Roxy, her sassy Dolly Parton-esque puppet. Unfortunately, Mackenzie's impressive show didn't help her move on to the top five, but we can still relive her (and Roxy's) magical stage show above. »

Miss America 2015: 'Jane Austin,' terrifying frogs, and more of what you missed

15 September 2014 6:53 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

On the night of Sept. 14, some Americans expressed their patriotism by cheering as the Chicago Bears mauled the San Francisco 49ers. More refined types took in the first episode of Ken Burns’ The Roosevelts: An Intimate History on PBS. The classiest nationalists of all forewent TV entirely, choosing instead to read the Constitution by candlelight while listening to the collected works of John Philip Sousa and supping on a freshly roasted bald eagle.

But those of us who really know what these United States are all about spent the evening watching the unique ridiculosity that is the Miss America pageant on ABC. »

Here's the Miss America "Cups" Performance That Everyone's Talking About

15 September 2014 5:28 AM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Miss New York Kira Kazantsev was crowned Miss America on Sunday night, but it's her performance of Pharrell Williams's "Happy" that is getting everyone talking. Kira did a mix of "Happy" with Anna Kendrick's now-famous "Cups" performance from Pitch Perfect for her talent portion, opting to sit cross-legged on the stage in a blue ensemble. Anna even commented on the viral performance, joking that she and Pharrell "can't stop collaborating." In addition to showing off her cup skills, Kira's win also marked the third year in a row that a Miss New York has taken home the Miss America crown. Watch a portion of Kira's winning performance above and see Anna's tweet below. So I guess @Pharrell and I can't stop collaborating. #MissAmerica #WhatIsHappening?? pic.twitter.com/AhsTA62PJJ — Anna Kendrick (@AnnaKendrick47) September 15, 2014 Front Page Image Source: AP »

Miss America Winner Crowned After Performing 'Pitch Perfect'-Inspired Version of 'Happy'

14 September 2014 9:57 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Miss New York Kira Kazantsev won the Miss America pageant Sunday night, with the help of a red plastic cup. For her talent performance, Kazantsev sang Pharrell Williams' "Happy" while sitting cross-legged on the stage and banging a red plastic cup on the floor. That immediately touched off a furor on social media networks, where many were critical of her performance. But Kazantsev said she was inspired by the 2012 movie Pitch Perfect in which Anna Kendrick's character auditions for an a capella group by performing rhythmically with a cup (see Kazantsev's and Kendrick's performances below).

Anna Kendrick Proudly Admits She Tossed Diamond Earrings in the Trash

11 September 2014 2:36 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Sometimes people, even Anna Kendrick, make mistakes. During a recent chat on Wtf With Marc Manon, the Pitch Perfect actress shared the weirdest encounter she's ever had with a fan. And while, yeah, the fan's gesture may have been borderline creepy (Ok, fully creepy), it was Kendrick's reaction that seems to be the most shocking part about the whole thing. "I got [a gift] with, like, a really long love letter about how he really felt like we should be together, and if I would just give him a chance, and he didn't want to do it over social media because he thought that would pressure me because it was public…he [wanted] to be a gentleman," she explained.

Fall In Love With Anna Kendrick In First Clip From The Last 5 Years

8 September 2014 12:43 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Just when it seemed impossible for Anna Kendrick to steal another space in your heart (or loins), she’s gone and done it again! The actress’s phenomenal singing talent, twinned with her unshakable cuteness, has made her the go-to gal for musicals. First seen bellowing half-naked in the shower in Pitch Perfect, she’s since completed work on Rob Marshall’s musical Into The Woods and her latest, The Last 5 Years looks set to showcase her vocal stylings further.

Directed by Richard Lagravenese, the man behind P.S. I Love You, and adapted from Jason Robert Brown’s off-Broadway play, the movie experiments with its narrative style. Charting the five-year relationship of married couple, Cathy (Kendrick) and Jaime (Jeremy Jordan), the film splits into two stories. Her side of the relationship is told backwards from the end, and his is told from the start. The two threads meet in »
