Tina Fey's SNL Monologue Is So Full of Celebrity Cameos, We're Seeing Stars
Welcome home, Tina Fey! It's been 20 years since the 48-year-old comedian started at Saturday Night Live, and on May 19, she hosted the show for the sixth time. The show's season finale also happened to fall close to Tina's birthday, May 18, and she was allowed to do "whatever she wanted" for her monologue. So she decided to take some totally random, absolutely unplanned, definitely not planted questions from the audience.

The questions casually came from audience members such as Jerry Seinfeld, Benedict Cumberbatch, Anne Hathaway, Chris Rock, Fred Armisen, Robert De Niro, and Donald Glover. Plus, an old friend came out to wish Tina a happy birthday on stage at the very end. Watch the star-studded Q&A above, and then be sure to check out SNL's hilarious royal afterparty from the same episode.

Robert De Niro To Be Honored With Brass Ring Award at 2018 Carousel of Hope Ball

Event chair and host Barbara Davis announced today that Academy award-winning actor, producer and director Robert De Niro will be honored with the “Brass Ring Award” at The 2018 Carousel of Hope Ball on Saturday, October 6.

The biennial event is dedicated to increasing awareness for diabetes, and raising funds for clinical care and diabetes research at the Barbara Davis Center For Diabetes. Longtime supporter, Robert De Niro, will receive the award at this year’s ball for his humanitarian efforts and continued support of the cause. The “Brass Ring Award” was named after the elusive brass ring that carousel riders would try to catch when the ride first became popular. Now universally recognized as a symbol of achievement, the brass ring represents the ultimate goal of finding a cure for diabetes. “Brass Ring Award” recipients exemplify the dedication and strength that brings the Children’s Diabetes Foundation and the Barbara Davis

‘Deadpool 2’ at $125 Million Could Suggest Marvel Box-Office Fatigue Has Come at Last

Is a $125-milllion opening weekend enough? Seems crazy to ask, but that’s what our Marvel-dominated world has come to. “Deadpool 2” had the third-biggest opening of 2018, and the third biggest opening for a Marvel film, after Disney’s “Black Panther” and “Avengers: Infinity War” (both over $200 million to start).

Deadpool 2” opened to over $300 million worldwide, and had a lower budget than many Marvel titles, so this should be a profitable title and then some. But it also shows the first signs of possible Marvel weariness, if only because the gross came in a little under expectations.

The low range of pre-opening estimates was $130 million, with $150 million commonplace. Judging a film by predictions is not totally fair, but at this point Marvel films are expected to shock and awe. Still, it’s a soft debut.

Why? Gross-depressing factors might include comedic sequels, the R rating films, and the absent surprise factor.

Tina Fey’s ‘SNL’ Monologue Features Cameos by Jerry Seinfeld, Anne Hathaway, Benedict Cumberbatch, and More — Watch

Tina Fey’s ‘SNL’ Monologue Features Cameos by Jerry Seinfeld, Anne Hathaway, Benedict Cumberbatch, and More — Watch
Does “Saturday Night Live” feature too many celebrity cameos these days? That was the question at the heart of Tina Fey’s monologue last night, which happened to feature cameos from Jerry Seinfeld, Benedict Cumberbatch, Chris Rock, Anne Hathaway, Fred Armisen, Donald Glover, and Robert De Niro. As you might imagine, it was a lively conversation.

Seinfeld shows up first, as Fey decided to allow audience members to ask questions and he’s the first to raise his hand. “Do you think the show has too many celebrity cameos these days, because I’m worried the cast isn’t getting a chance to grow,” he says. Fey agrees, and for a moment it appears as though her next question will be from current cast member Beck Bennett — but then she reveals she was actually calling on the person behind him, Benedict Cumberbatch.

Then come Chris Rock, Robert De Niro (who

'SNL': Watch Tina Fey Reprise Sarah Palin Impersonation
Tina Fey revived her Sarah Palin impersonation for a Saturday Night Live musical number that reunited some of Season 43's Trump White House characters.

"Here's a refresher: I was the first female on a Republican presidential ticket and now I get paid to tweet for Bass Pro Shops," Fey's Palin, one of SNL's most savage political impersonations, said. "Take it from me, politics is a wild ride. One minute you're on top and then you're gone in the blink of a Scaramucci."

In addition to Fey's former Alaska governor and vice presidential candidate,

‘SNL’ Cold Open Channels ‘The Sopranos’ Finale With Alec Baldwin, Robert De Niro, and Ben Stiller — Watch
For its season finale, “Saturday Night Live” decided to channel a show with one of the most (in)famous series finales of all time: “The Sopranos.” Alec Baldwin’s Donald Trump took the Tony Soprano role, because of course he did, and was joined in the cold open by both regular cast members and other special guests.

Before any of his guests to join him at Holsten’s Restaurant in Bloomfield, New Jersey, Trump turns on the jukebox so we can listen to Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believin'” once again. Giuliani shows up first to talk about his most recent appearances on Fox News, and after being thanked for his services assures his boss that he’s “the best and last client I’ll ever have.”

Cohen arrives next, visibly shaken by his ongoing legal troubles: “They said I might get 20 years unless I give you up,” he tells Trump.

Tina Fey on 'SNL': 3 Sketches You Have to See
In its season finale, this 43rd season of Saturday Night Live went out the same way it came in: Unsure how best to tackle Trump's America. It's been a rocky road all season, and I'm not convinced it's entirely the show's fault. Pushed to huge ratings highs due to its Trump-related content in Season 42, the show had to figure out how to keep up with a world in which new events, scandals, and real-life operatic twists threatened to make each week's topical cold open stale by airtime. The show also

The season finale of Saturday Night Live borrowed from another classic series finale as Alec Baldwin's Donald Trump and his Mueller investigation legal team reunite at a diner in a cold open sketch that reimagined the famed closing scene from The Sopranos.

Trump sits in the booth of a New Jersey diner and waits for his guests to arrive, pumping change into the table's jukebox to play Journey's "Don't Stop Believin'," which also soundtracked the much-debated final moments from the HBO mob drama.

SNL Finale Highlights: Tina Fey Spoofs Mean Girls Musical, Royal Wedding
Despite a valiant effort from returning host Tina Fey, Saturday Night Live‘s 43rd season went out with (mostly) a whimper.

Following a lackluster (and dated!) Sopranos-themed cold open, SNL rebounded with Fey’s star-studded monologue, which featured cameos by Jerry Seinfeld, Robert De Niro, Anne Hathaway, Donald Glover, Chris Rock, Benedict Cumberbatch, Fred Armisen and Tracy Morgan. The sharp, resonant bit poked fun at the show’s preference for using big-name guest stars instead of its own cast members.

Weirdly, the underwhelming episode picked up steam in the last half-hour…

Tina Fey hosted the May 19 season finale of “Saturday Night Live” and she brought some of her famous friends with her.

For her opening monologue, the former “SNL” writer and actor said she was told she was allowed to do anything because it was her birthday yesterday, and what she wanted to do was take questions from the audience.

The first one was from Jerry Seinfeld, who asked her if she thought the show had too many celebrity cameos of late. (Ben Stiller and Robert De Niro had returned just minutes before for the cold open.)

‘SNL': Baldwin’s Trump Celebrates the Anniversary of the Mueller Investigation with a ‘Sopranos’ Parody (Video)
Alec Baldwin returned for the series finale of “SNL” as Donald Trump, parodying the finale of “The Sopranos” to celebrate the first year of the Russia investigation.

Baldwin’s Trump started the sketch by entering a restaurant in New Jersey to meet friends — Kate McKinnon as Rudy Giuliani, Ben Stiller as his former lawyer Michael Cohen, and Mikey Day as Donald Trump Jr.

“So Rudy did you go on Fox News last night?” Trump asked as McKinnon’s Giuliani sat down.

“Like 20 times,” Giuliani answered. “Don’t worry I told them you were openly colluding with Russia, but then I said ‘So what!’ I even confessed to some crimes you didn’t do but then i said, what are you gonna do, arrest the president?”

Stiller’s Cohen entered next, still downtrodden for being pulled into the Robert Mueller investigation.

Alec Baldwin was back on “Saturday Night Live” May 19 for the NBC comedy’s 43rd season finale in a cold open sketch that had him meeting his friends and foes — including Kate McKinnon’s Rudy Giuliani, Ben Stiller’s Michael Cohen and Robert De Niro’s Robert Mueller — in a diner. It was a chance for the show to take on last jab at the political players in Donald Trump’s White House, and the show wasted no time hopping from person to person and topic to topic.

“BlacKkKlansman”: Oscar predictions for May

Academy Award predictions at this early juncture are still very much a complete guessing game. Unless something blows everyone away at the Sundance Film Festival or the Cannes Film Festival, you’re simply speculating. Still, speculation is the name of the game each year, so that’s never stopped anyone before. With May almost wrapped up, it’s a perfect time to check in about what Oscar voters could be thinking when things get cold again in the fall and winter. In a few months, we’ll have a better sense of things, but for now, it’s as much as anything a fun exercise in obvious futility. There are a few tinkers to be found here with this new slate of Oscar predictions. Mostly, it’s an acknowledgment that Spike Lee’s recent Cannes hit BlackKklansman may well be an awards player. That’s the main thing to take from this,

‘Show Dogs’ Film Review: Sloppy, Unfunny Comedy Merely a Collection of Pet Peeves

‘Show Dogs’ Film Review: Sloppy, Unfunny Comedy Merely a Collection of Pet Peeves
Families with canines are better off staying home and having an old-fashioned backyard frolic than trotting out to see “Show Dogs,” a panting, poorly trained entry in the live-action/talking animal genre that for once makes viewers long for the candy-colored, half-witted professionalism of third-tier Pixar-knockoff animation.

Had it all been digitally rendered and pushed to the edges of anthropomorphized wackiness, you could see where a Las Vegas dog show hiding nefarious doings and infiltrated by a mismatched pair of crimefighters might make for a suitably diverting afternoon for parents and kids alike.

But however vigorous was the effort on the part of hard-working trainers to get the movie’s various breeds — Rottweilers, pugs, Papillons and more — to hit their marks, the movie around them, as directed by Raja Gosnell feels no compulsion to be as dutiful in its call to entertain.

‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ First Trailer: Watch Rami Malek Rock You as Freddie Mercury (Video)

We see a little silhouetto of a man in glittery spandex, as early Tuesday morning 20th Century Fox Film snuck out a teaser trailer for “Bohemian Rhapsody.”

The long-gestating and anticipated biopic of iconic rocker Freddie Mercury is coming to theaters this fall, played by “Mr. Robot” Emmy-winner Rami Malek.

“The only thing more extraordinary than their music is his story,” the trailer promises, referring to English rockers Queen and their frontman Mercury, respectively.

Watch Scorsese’s Entire Cannes Masterclass As He Talks ‘Mean Streets,’ Plus ‘The Irishman’ Having 300 Scenes

For a while now, we’ve known that Martin Scorsese’s upcoming Netflix film “The Irishman” was going to be a big endeavor. With a reported budget of $140 million, the team-up of Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, and Joe Pesci is turning into one of the largest productions the legendary director has ever worked on.
