Cuba Gooding Jr. and former Miss America Vanessa Williams will add more starpower to the 14-week run of Horton Foote classic The Trip to Bountiful. Grand Dame Cicley Tyson is already on board for the play. Tony Award nominee Condola Rashad rounds out the new additions. She’s appeared in Lifetime’s “Steel Magnolias” and Broadway’s Stick Fly. The play revolves around Carrie Watts (Tyson), an elderly woman who dreams of returning to her small hometown [...] »
Everything and the kitchen sink follow via press release below; Of course Denzel Washington is nominated for his Flight performance. But, as you'd guess, there are very few of "us" on this list. I was really surprised to see Alfre Woodard nominated for her performance as Ouiser in Liftime's Steel Magnolias, in the Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Television Movie or Miniseries category. Other than those 2 notables, and some ensemble cast mentions, like David Estes (Homeland) and Chris Tucker (The Silver Linings Playbook), it's a majority vanilla list. Ho-hum... 19th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards® Nominations Theatrical »

Lifetime's "Steel Magnolias" remake dominates the list of this year's NAACP Image Award nominees with seven nods, while "Django Unchained" and "Beasts of the Southern Wild" picked up four each in film categories, and "Grey's Anatomy" and "Treme" nabbed four in TV.
Designed to honor "the accomplishments of people of color in the fields of television, music, literature and film," the annual Image nominations reliably offer up some real headscratchers: Tyler Perry is a best actor contender for "Alex Cross"? Amber Riley is a lead actress on "Glee"? The critically acclaimed "Middle of Nowhere" isn't worth a mention as outstanding independent film?
But there's also welcome, and rare, recognition for HBO's "Treme," plus well-deserved nods across the board for "Django" and "Beasts."

The nominees for the 44th NAACP Image Awards were announced Tuesday, with Quentin Tarantino's slavery drama "Django Unchained" and Lifetime's "Steel Magnolias" revamp racking up multiple nominations.

"Steel Magnolias," meanwhile, is nominated for Outstanding Television Movie, Mini-Series or Dramatic Special, with Afemo Omilami, Tory Kittles, Alfre Woodard, Phylicia Rashad and Queen Latifah also nominated for their work on the Lifetime project.

We're late on reporting this, but better late than never. Jill Scott will guest-star in an upcoming episode of Fringe, playing a character named Simone, who is described as "an incredibly intuitive woman, an oracle-like person," who will help Olivia (Anna Torv) in an early Season 5 episode. Ms Scott's on somewhat of a roll in terms of her acting career; in addition to co-starring in Lifetime’s recent hit remake of Steel Magnolias, she’s also currently shooting the Fox Searchlight's romcom Baggage Claim, with Paula Patton, and, both The Hollywood Reporter and Entertainment Weekly say that she’s been cast in Woody Allen’s next »

Just as news of Anderson Cooper's talk show cancellation rings out, another chat contender steps up to the plate: Queen Latifah, who hosted an eponymous talk show in 1999 for two seasons, is coming back in 2013 with another daytime offering. Since I'm not especially pleased with the current platter of new talk shows, this is both encouraging and harrowing. If Ricki Lake can't bring back the fire of her '90s hit, why should I expect Queen Latifah, whose new show will offer "celebrity interviews, human interest stories, and live performances," to be able to do the same?
But of course, the question of renewable vitality has always been central to Queen Latifah's presence in pop culture. The woman who once righteously thrilled and dominated rap with hits like "U.N.I.T.Y." has morphed into several other versions of bankable entertainer: She's been an actress (Oscar-nominated for »
The "Hannah Montana" star had been in talks to play Bonnie Parker in the project, which will retell the story of the infamous 1930s bank robbers. She has now dropped out, TVLine reports. No one is saying what led her to bolt.
Craig Zadan and Neil Meron ("Smash," Lifetime's "Steel Magnolias") are executive producing the miniseries, which would follow the bank-robbing gang on their spree through Texas, Oklahoma and the Midwest during the Great Depression. Parker and Clyde Barrow were killed by Texas and Louisiana lawmen in May 1934.
With Cyrus out, who would you like to see play Bonnie Parker in the miniseries? Cast the miniseries in the comments. »
The busy producing team of Neil Meron and Craig Zadan got a little busier recently when the duo, who head up Storyline Entertainment, were tapped to produce a little show called the Academy Awards next spring and the recent announcement that Seth MacFarlane would host created a stir in the Hollywood community.
But creating a stir is what Meron and Zadan do best, with high profile projects in film (Chicago), television (Smash and Bette Midler’s Gypsy) and theater (How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying). It’s no surprise then that this weekend at the Outfest Legacy Awards in Los Angeles, they’ll receive the Visionary Award from none other than Darren Criss, who is also performing at the event.
AfterElton grabbed some time on the busy calendar of Meron and Zadan to talk about what the award means to them, their plans for Oscar night, »
Lindsay Lohan, you better bring it.
Lifetime's heavily hyped remake of "Steel Magnolias," starring Queen Latifah, Phylicia Rashad, Alfre Woodard and Jill Scott, drew 6.5 million viewers in its Sunday night premiere to become the third highest rated original telecast in Lifetime history. That sets the bar high for Lifetime's "Liz & Dick," starring Lohan as Elizabeth Taylor, which will premiere Nov. 25.
"Magnolias" fell just shy of matching the 6.6 million viewers who tuned in to Lifetime for 2006's "Life is Not a Fairy Tale: The Fantasia Barrino Story." However, "Magnolias'" 3.2 million viewers in the 25-54 demo was Lifetime's best since 1995's "Almost Golden: The Jessica Savitch Story," which remains the network's most-watched movie overall at over 7 million viewers.
Are you surprised by how well "Steel Magnolias" did? We kinda liked it, but what did you think? »

Steel Magnolias has bloomed big for Lifetime. The telepic, starring Queen Latifah, Phylicia Rashad and Alfre Woodard, collected 6.5 million total viewers, ranking as the female-skewing cable network's third-most-watched telecast ever. The remake from Latifah and Smash executive producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron posted Lifetime's best delivery since 2006's Life is Not a Fairy Tale: The Fantasia Barrino Story, and the No. 1 cable movie among total viewers since 2007 (excluding miniseries). The Sony Pictures Television pic averaged 3.2 million adults 25-54, ranking as Lifetime's best demo showing for a movie in 17

The Lifetime original movie Steel Magnolias delivered big ratings in its premiere last night, drawing 6.5 million total viewers to become Lifetime’s third-most-watched original telecast ever. It posted the network’s best delivery since 2006 (Life Is Not A Fairy Tale: The Fantasia Barrino Story). Steel Magnolias, a television adaptation of the play and 1989 film with an all-black cast, also became the No. 1 two-hour cable movie among total viewers since 2007. Starring and executive produced by Queen Latifah and also starring Phylicia Rashad, Adepero Oduye, Condola Rashad, Jill Scott and Alfre Woodard, the Sony Pictures TV-produced film averaged 3.2 million adults 25-54, Lifetime’s best delivery in the demographic for a movie in 17 years — since the 1995 premiere of Almost Golden: The Jessica Savitch Story — and a cable best since 2006. Among women 25-54, Steel Magnolias, executive produced by Neil Meron and Craig Zadan, is Lifetime’s most-watched movie in network history with 2.5 million viewers, »

The big question after watching Lifetime's "Steel Magnolias" update, starring heavyweights Queen Latifah, Alfre Woodard and Phylicia Rashad (not too shabby for a TV movie): how did it hold up to the original?
At first the similarities were a little jarring -- why were these characters exactly the same, and why were they dealing with the exact same problems? Couldn't the plot have changed even the tiniest bit to make it a little bit more original? Nope, we've got Southern matriarch M'Lynn (Latifah) and her pals gathering at the salon run by Truvy (Jill Scott) while her daughter, Shelby (the fantastic Condola Rashad), struggles with her health. You know (and have cried to) the rest.
But if you think about it, the fact that the characters and the story are the same means means that a whole new generation of women will add the movie to their cry-a-thons. (Unless »
Variety hosted its annual Power of Women luncheon today at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel in Beverly Hills. The event, which celebrates influential women in the entertainment world, brought out a long list of boldfaced names. Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck were in attendance after stepping out for the La premiere of Argo last night. The couple were among the presenters at the event, which spotlighted several actresses and their charitable contributions. Inside the lunch, Jessica Biel and Jennifer were seen catching up side by side at their table and posing for pictures together. Today's honorees included Jessica, Halle Berry, Katherine Heigl, Queen Latifah, and Felicity Huffman. Queen Latifah's remake of Steel Magnolias premieres on Lifetime this weekend, and the cable network cosponsored today's festivities. The actress and rapper was specifically honored for the scholarship foundation she founded in her late brother's memory. View Slideshow › »
