Barbra Streisand Talks Donald Trump With Bill Maher, Urges Media To Stop Covering Rallies
Updated with video: “Real sadness as well as anger, I must say, motivated me,” Barbra Streisand told Bill Maher about the act of making her new album, Walls.

“I couldn’t sleep nights. The photographs in my head – the pictures of the children being ripped out of the arms of their parents,” she explained on HBO’s Real Time with Bill Maher.

People voting often “don’t know the specifics, but they kind of sense whether you are for real,” Maher described. “Not everybody, even in my own audience, agrees with me on stuff. But the bond is that they know I’m never pulling a punch. I’m always being straight with them. … It’s very powerful. And when you’re like that, you can be friends with other side.”

Maher noted that Streisand recently got a call from 1996 Gop presidential nominee Bob Dole — who, Maher confessed, he did not realize was still alive.

Oscars 2019 exclusive: 5-time nominee Amy Adams (‘Vice’) will compete as Best Supporting Actress
Gold Derby can exclusively confirm that five-time Oscar nominee Amy Adams will compete as Best Supporting Actress for the 2019 Academy Awards. It had been speculated for months if her role in “Vice” would be lead or supporting. In fact, it was so uncertain that we have had her listed in both the lead and supporting categories until the studio could confirm.

The trailer for the long-awaited project from director and writer Adam McKay just dropped late last week. It stars Christian Bale as former U.S. Vice President Dick Cheney and Adams as his wife Lynne. Others co-stars include Sam Rockwell as George W. Bush, Steve Carell as Donald Rumsfeld, Tyler Perry as Colin Powell and Alison Pill and Lily Rabe as the Cheney daughters. McKay won an Oscar for Best Adapted Screenplay for the 2015 film “The Big Short,” another comedic drama about real life events.

Madam Secretary Season 5 Episode 1 Review: E Pluribus Unum

  • TVfanatic
What a way to kick things off. 

As if having not one, not two, but three former Secretaries of State on Madam Secretary Season 5 Episode 1 wasn't enough, the cast and writers delivered a hell of a story.

The part about pulling off nuclear disarmament on the Indian subcontinent was impressive, and Timeless alum Sakina Jeffrey shone, but that's not what I'm talking about here. 

The crisis du jour was the least interesting and least important part of "E Pluribus Unum." What resonated was the argument against nationalism, the argument for unity. 

Watching Elizabeth's closing speech was damn near like watching Martin Sheen deliver a monologue on The West Wing during the Sorkin years. It almost made you wonder if he'd been hired as a ghostwriter.

Madam Secretary Premiere: Téa Leoni, Ep Break Down That Deadly White House Attack, Hillary Clinton's Big Visit

You sure you want a seat at the Resolute Desk, Elizabeth?

It would be natural for Madam Secretary‘s protagonist to think twice about her unannounced Oval Office dreams, given that that very room was the site of a lethal act of terrorism in the CBS series’ Season 5 premiere.

The episode opened with the attack, which took place as leaders from India and Pakistan gathered at the White House to sign a memorandum of understanding between the two countries. A giant explosion rocked President Dalton’s office, and it was unclear who — including Stevie, who’d been in attendance — had survived.

But we do know, thanks to the good people at Madam Secretary, that the onetime presidential hopeful has a soft spot for NBC’s cancelled Broadway drama. (More on that in a moment.)

See how Christian Bale balloons into VP Dick Cheney in the just-landed ‘Vice’ trailer
Wow. Christian Bale Is Dick Cheney!

Stop whatever you are doing right now and watch the just-released trailer (above) for “Vice,” Adam McKay’s sly satirical take on the military-minded mastermind who pulled most of the strings during the two-term reign of U.S. President George W. Bush. The film, which opens on Christmas Day, looks to be just the right present for our current divisive political atmosphere.

Bale is a notorious chameleon when it comes to committing to roles, losing 63 pounds for his title role in 2004’s “The Machinist” or pumping iron for 2000’s “American Psycho” and his stint as Batman.

Yes No Maybe So: Christian Bale is "Vice"

by Nathaniel R

click to embiggenThe major Oscar hopeful that's played things closest to the vest this season is Vice. The trailer and poster (to your left) have both finally dropped today and other Oscar campaigns are probably shivering a bit. The film, from writer/director Adam McKay of The Big Short fame, is a comedy telling the true story of how Dick Cheney came to rule the world (albeit behind the curtain as the Vice President) and set the Us on a sorry new course.

It's an all-star affair with Oscar winners Christian Bale (Dick Cheney) and Sam Rockwell (George W Bush), Oscar darling Amy Adams (Lynne Cheney), and Oscar nominee Steve Carell (Donald Rumsfeld) in political drag as figures we know and love hate. Alison Pill and Tyler Perry are also in the film (though they aren't featured in the trailer) as Mary Cheney and Colin Powell respectively.

Christian Bale Transforms Into ‘Ruthless’ Dick Cheney for First ‘Vice’ Trailer (Video)

Christian Bale Transforms Into ‘Ruthless’ Dick Cheney for First ‘Vice’ Trailer (Video)
Christian Bale may have gotten ripped to play Batman, but now he’s packed on 40 pounds to play Dick Cheney in “Vice,” Adam McKay’s dramedy biopic about the 43rd vice president of the United States.

“Are you even more ruthless than you used to be?” Steve Carell’s Don Rumsfeld asks Bale’s Cheney in the first trailer, which Annapurna Pictures dropped on Wednesday.

The new footage also features Oscar winner Sam Rockwell as an apparently dim-witted good-old-boy version of George W. Bush, who chews on a chicken wing while asking Cheney to be his No. 2 — and agreeing to hand over “mundane jobs, overseeing bureaucracy, military, energy and foreign policy.”

‘Vice’ Trailer: Christian Bale is Dick Cheney in Adam McKay’s ‘The Big Short’ Reunion

For the past year Adam McKay’s Vice, which chronicles the political rising of Vice President Dick Cheney (Christian Bale) and his wife Lynne Cheney (Amy Adams), has been shrouded in much mystery. It’s skipped all the major festivals of the season and is set for a release in December, and now the first look has finally arrived with the official trailer.

In addition to Bale and Adams, the film co-stars recent Oscar winner Sam Rockwell as George W. Bush, Steve Carell as Donald Rumsfeld, Bill Pullman as Nelson Rockefeller, Tyler Perry as Colin Powell, and Alison Pill and Lily Rabe as the two Cheney daughters Mary and Liz, respectively.

Vice is McKay’s follow up to 2015’s The Big Short, a multi-perspective retelling of the 2008 financial crisis, which followed a similar path that Vice has been taking, with a late winter premiere. It’s a strategy that worked wonderfully for The Big Short,

‘Murphy Brown’ Premieres With Surprise Hillary Clinton Cameo

‘Murphy Brown’ Premieres With Surprise Hillary Clinton Cameo
Hillary Clinton made a surprise cameo appearance on the premiere of the “Murphy Brown” revival Thursday night, making several jokes at her own expense.

At the beginning of the episode, Candice Bergen’s Murphy Brown interviews a new candidate for a “secretarial position.” Enter Hillary, who says she spells her name with just one “L,” and insists she just looks like the ex-Secretary of State.

“Hilary” references one of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign blurbs, saying “I’m qualified, and I’m ready on day one,” and quips that she has “some experience with emails.” The she adds that her experience includes four years as a secretary in “a very large organization.” And of course, “Hilary” also references one of Clinton’s books, saying that in a TV news production, “everyone works together. It takes a village.” Wokka wokka wokka.

Hillary Clinton Is ‘Murphy Brown’s Secret Guest Star; Another CBS Cameo To Come

Hillary Clinton Is ‘Murphy Brown’s Secret Guest Star; Another CBS Cameo To Come
Almost two years after Hillary Clinton and most of the world thought she was going to become America’s first female President, it seems the candidate defeated by Donald Trump is making a new home on the small screen.

As Deadline predicted in our Murphy Brown review yesterday, tonight saw Clinton appear on the debut of the revival in what was a near-state-secret cameo. Teased by creator Diane English and left off critics’ review screeners, the brief turn by the ex-Secretary of State and First Lady saw her applying to be the assistant of Candice Bergen’s Murphy. In a trademark red pantsuit, Clinton mocked herself and the controversy that plagued her during the 2016 election with a line about “some experience with emails.” (you can watch a video below.)

‘Quincy’ Review: Music Icon, Film Producer, and Humanitarian Quincy Jones Gets an Inspiring Tribute Fit for a King — Tiff

‘Quincy’ Review: Music Icon, Film Producer, and Humanitarian Quincy Jones Gets an Inspiring Tribute Fit for a King — Tiff
Pick any critical cultural moment of the last six decades, and you’re likely to find Quincy Jones’ fingerprints somewhere on the tape. In those 60 years, he has toured with Ray Charles as a teenager, written chart-toppers for Lesley Gore, arranged music for Frank Sinatra, produced Michael Jackson’s “Thriller,” and launched the careers of Oprah Winfrey, Will Smith, and Whoopi Goldberg, to name a few. His name is synonymous with black culture, American music, and humanitarianism. But few have had the privilege to sit by Qunicy’s side holding his hand as he narrates one of countless stories stored away in his ever-sharp and creative mind. His daughter, the actress (now filmmaker) Rashida Jones, is one of them — and in the new documentary “Quincy,” she graciously shares the rarefied experience with the rest of the world.

Drawing on extraordinary archival footage and intimate moments shot over the last five years,
