Jennifer Lawrence, Robert De Niro and Bradley Cooper shine in David O. Russell's Joy with Édgar Ramírez, Isabella Rossellini, Elisabeth Röhm, Jimmy Jean-Louis, Dascha Polanco and Drena De Niro.

Two emotional centers of Joy, Diane Ladd and Virginia Madsen, also have their own family ties to two men, Bruce Dern and Michael Madsen of Quentin Tarantino's The Hateful Eight, whom I encountered the day before. Ladd and Dern produced Laura Dern - Virginia and Michael Madsen are siblings.

‘Guardians of the Galaxy,’ ‘The Walking Dead,’ ‘Interstellar’ Shine at Saturn Awards

‘Guardians of the Galaxy,’ ‘The Walking Dead,’ ‘Interstellar’ Shine at Saturn Awards
Interstellar” drew the most wins at the 41st annual Saturn Awards, taking six awards including top science fiction film. But “Guardians of the Galaxy” also had a big night, picking up awards for top comicbook film, best director and best actor for Chris Pratt.

Jonathan Nolan accepted the screenwriting honor for “Interstellar.” He quipped: ” ‘Interstellar’ is the story of a man who goes on an arduous journey, comes back 100 years later to find that nobody remembers him or gives a f–k about what he was doing. It’s a pretty good metaphor for writing a studio film.”

“Guardians” director James Gunn accepted for Pratt, then was recalled to the podium twice more in quick succession to accept his own kudos and the top honor for the film. Gunn eschewed the “cocktail attire” dress code for a black sweatshirt emblazoned with a kitten. Gunn read a message from Pratt: “James Gunn is the future.

Why ‘Mad Men’s’ Megan Should Lighten Up About ‘Dark Shadows’

Why ‘Mad Men’s’ Megan Should Lighten Up About ‘Dark Shadows’
Kathryn Leigh Scott starred on “Dark Shadows” and is the author of several books, including “Dark Shadows: Return to Collinwood” and “Dark Passages.” She has written the newly published mystery romance “Down and Out in Beverly Heels.” www.kathrynleighscott.com

I’m hopelessly addicted to “Mad Men” and my obsession with the show has a lot to do with déjà vu all over again. As a young actress launching a career in New York in the mid-’60s, I was there!— just where Megan Draper has been in the most recent season of “Mad Men.” In fact, Megan Draper’s life is occasionally a little too close to mine for comfort.
