Modern Family Season 9 Episode 19 Review: CHiPs and Salsa

On Modern Family Season 9 Episode 19, Mitch gets Cam the police ride-along he's always dreamed of, while Hayley tries to convince Gloria to sell her salsa.

Let's start with Phil and Claire because they're on an upswing in their relationship, and I'm excited about it.

This season started out with Claire picking on Phil more than usual and lacked the sweet moments that I've come to love and expect from these two.

The last couple of episodes, though, things have been turning around in their marriage, and we're seeing a lot more sweet and honest moments between Phil and Claire.

Yes, they start off lying to each other and, yes, that's annoying. It always has been. But, when they finally break down and are just honest with each other, they click again and all is well in the Dunphy house.

Michael Caine, who won an Oscar for his role in Woody Allen’s “Hannah and Her Sisters,” has ruled out working with the director again.

In an interview with the Guardian, Caine said he had been “stunned” by the allegation made against Allen by Allen’s adopted daughter Dylan Farrow. She has accused him of sexually assaulting her when she was a child, which Allen denies.

Caine said: “I am a patron of the Nspcc [National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children] and have very strong views about pedophilia.

Bob Weinstein Trying to Find Buyer Who Will Keep Weinstein Company Operating as ‘Going Concern’

Bob Weinstein Trying to Find Buyer Who Will Keep Weinstein Company Operating as ‘Going Concern’
Bob Weinstein assured staffers that payroll obligations at the Weinstein Company will be met and said he is working to sell the embattled indie studio to a buyer who will keep it operating. The Weinstein Company is on the verge of filing for bankruptcy after a deal to sell itself to a group of investors led by billionaire Ron Burkle and former Small Business Administration chief Maria Contreras-Sweet collapsed on Tuesday. A Chapter 11 filing could come as early as next week.

“The board is still in discussions with potential buyers who want to keep the company and employees as a going concern,” Weinstein wrote to employees. “That has been one of our main goals and we are still pursuing it. Payroll obligations will be continued to be met.”

Lionsgate is possibly interested in buying parts of the Weinstein Company’s film and television library, but would not want to own the business outright.

Inside the Governors Ball, From Frances McDormand’s Stolen Award to Oscar Engravings

Just because the big show ended didn’t mean the excitement was over on Oscar night, with the night’s winners heading to the Governors Ball to celebrate with new golden statues in hand.

Frances McDormand, who won best actress for her performance in “Three Billboards Outside of Ebbing, Missouri,” was the talk of the ball after her statuette was temporarily stolen when she put it down on a table. Celebrity photographer Alex Berliner chased down the thief, identified as Terry Bryant, before he could get too far, returning the award to its rightful owner, and Bryant was later booked on grand theft charges.

Prior to the theft, McDormand got her Oscar engraved at the Governors Ball and posed with her award alongside her son, saying “that’s my baby boy!” and that he would inherit her statue one day.
