Ed Harris movies: 15 greatest films ranked from worst to best, including ‘Apollo 13,’ ‘The Truman Show,’ ‘The Hours’
In Ed Harris‘s over-40-year career he has surprisingly never won an Oscar or an Emmy, despite four nominations from the motion picture academy and two from the TV academy. Emmy voters can start to make up for that this year as the second season of HBO’s “Westworld” premieres on Sunday, April 22. In honor of his return to the small screen, let’s take a look back at some of his best big-screen performances. Tour through our photo gallery above of Harris’s 15 greatest films, ranked from worst to best.

Harris received his first Oscar nomination in 1995 after almost two decades in front of the camera: Best Supporting Actor for “Apollo 13.” He subsequently competed for “The Truman Show” (Best Supporting Actor in 1998), “Pollock” (Best Actor in 2000), and “The Hours” (Best Supporting Actor in 2002). He didn’t win any of those, and he hasn’t been nominated since,

W&H: What drew you to this story?

Ef: I started writing it after a one night stand with the man who would become my husband. I was trying to make sense of feeling so incredibly, chemically drawn to someone I didn’t feel I could make it work with. By the time we started shooting we’d been married almost five years, and had

Amy Schumer Reveals Hilarious Text Conversation with Bff Jennifer Lawrence

Amy Schumer Reveals Hilarious Text Conversation with Bff Jennifer Lawrence
Ever wonder what Amy Schumer and Jennifer Lawrence text about?

Ellen DeGeneres brought up the question with the I Feel Pretty star, 36, earlier this week on her talk show, and on Thursday, Schumer took to social media to give fans a little taste of what their unique friendship looks like behind the scenes.

In a screenshot posted to her Instagram Story, Schumer shared a snapshot of a recent text conversation with Lawrence, 27, who she keeps in her phone as “Jlaw.” On a recent Friday morning, Lawrence wrote to the comedienne asking what she and her husband Chris Fischer were doing for dinner.

10 Celebs Who Insulted Ellen De Generes On Ellen

Is there anyone out there who doesn’t love Ellen Degeneres? This hilarious, outspoken talk show host is beloved by tons of fans, but not by everyone. Even some people who appeared on The Ellen Degeneres Show could barely contain their dislike of Ellen. Wendy Williams is constantly competing with Ellen for daytime ratings, and that might just explain their awkward encounter on television. Priyanka Chopra and Ellen started out having great banter, until Priyanka inadvertently insulted Ellen with an offhand comment. Giada De Laurentiis was supposed to teach Ellen and Nicole Kidman how to cook, but she spent more time mocking their dishes than instructing. Jennifer Lawrence not only managed to insult Ellen with her anti-lgbt comments, but many fans as well. Gospel singer Kim Burrell’s comments made Ellen cringe so badly that she uninvited her from appearing on her show as a musical guest.

If Dwayne Johnson Is Hollywood’s Biggest Star, Why Did ‘Rampage’ Open Soft?

If Dwayne Johnson Is Hollywood’s Biggest Star, Why Did ‘Rampage’ Open Soft?
“Rampage” opened #1 last weekend at just under $36 million, with Dwayne Johnson its only name draw. Is that enough to make The Rock the biggest movie star in Hollywood — or, is his greatest asset the near-complete dearth of actors who can open movies?

Johnson’s marquee value is well documented. Since 2011, he appeared in eight films that grossed over $100 million (nine if you include the animated “Moana”). “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle” and “The Fate of the Furious” in 2017 each exceeded $200 million. However, times have changed. Once, being a top star meant your movies were always the year’s biggest movies. Now, in an era where animation and comic-book adaptations are the biggest draws, an actor’s own larger-than-life appeal is less important.

Rampage” should make around $90 million domestic and another $300 million or so additional overseas. Expect it to make $400 worldwide, perhaps a little more. With production and marketing costs topping $220 million,

12 Dystopian Books to Read If You Couldn't Put Down The Hunger Games

There's a soft spot in our hearts for Josh Hutcherson and Jennifer Lawrence in Lionsgate's adaptation of The Hunger Games, but we definitely shouldn't forget about Suzanne Collins's dystopian novel that started the entire franchise. It's a page-turner of a book about the society of Panem, where teenagers called tributes are forced to enlist in a high-stakes televised fight to the death called the Hunger Games.

While it might be overlooked as a young adult series, The Hunger Games actually discusses important themes like inequality and consumerism. It also features Katniss Everdeen as its protagonist, a strong female character's who is as tough as she is vulnerable.

If you can really appreciate Suzanne Collins's themes and characters, you'll enjoy the following books, which range from dystopian teen series like Divergent to classroom classics like Lord of the Flies.

Amy Schumer’s 12 Best Moments: From a ‘Slutty’ Tattoo Joke to That Startling Cheer Dance (Photos)

Amy Schumer’s 12 Best Moments: From a ‘Slutty’ Tattoo Joke to That Startling Cheer Dance (Photos)
Amy Schumer’s early stand-up comedy always had her playing coy, cute and humble. But she would surprise you with humor so smutty, sexual and self-deprecating. Since then, she’s blossomed as a physical comedian, a feminist and a body-positive icon without losing that innocent charm. And with her new movie “I Feel Pretty” opening Friday, she’s still surprising us. Schumer is behind a lot of great sketches on her show “Inside Amy Schumer,” from parodies of “12 Angry Men,” “Friday Night Lights” and a hacky fake talk show. But these moments are designed to highlight the best of Schumer’s range as a comedic actress.

Katie Couric

Amy Schumer practically broke Questlove when she told this story to Jimmy Fallon. Schumer took Katie Couric’s phone at a gala dinner and texted her husband saying she wanted to…well you should just watch the clip. What makes it hilarious isn’t strictly what she said but that she did it as if it was involuntary.

Bradley Cooper

Amy Schumer has a hilarious obsession with Bradley Cooper, and honestly, who would blame her? She’s mentioned on numerous talk shows and in her stand-up how she’s pestered him at awards shows, shouted his name and declared herself in a relationship with him. “He’s the type of hot that when you see him, you immediately grab your ankles,” Schumer joked on “SNL.” But Schumer isn’t just gushing; she’s creating a believable fantasy for women everywhere.

Milk Milk Lemonade

Watching “Milk Milk Lemonade” should practically come with an Nsfw warning for how much colorful, eye-popping gyrating it puts on screen. But “Milk Milk Lemonade” takes the overtly sexualized imagery so often seen in similar music videos and frames women’s bodies as something natural “where my poop comes out.” Plus it’s actually a damn catchy song.

The Foodroom

“Inside Amy Schumer” had a lot of pitch perfect parodies, but Schumer stands out the most in this Aaron Sorkin parody of “The Newsroom.” She elevates the sketch beyond putting Sorkin’s walking and talking monologues in a fast food setting, making her screwball, romantic banter hilariously smutty as well.

Golden Globes with Jennifer Lawrence

Back at the Golden Globes in 2015, one of the greatest celeb Bff pairings was born when Schumer took the stage with Jennifer Lawrence. If she’s J-Law, then Amy Schumer’s nickname is “A-Schu” (say it out loud). They look alike, sound alike, can make each other laugh, and Lawrence’s awkward, cool-girl persona is a stage presence Schumer has spent her whole career cultivating.

The Comedy Central Roast of Charlie Sheen

Schumer already appeared on “Last Comic Standing” and as a writer and actress with some visibility, but her ruthless insult comedy here was when she truly broke out, going on to earn a Comedy Central special and then her own show. She’s especially tough on Mike Tyson and his “slutty back tattoo” on his face.

Dance from Trainwreck

There are a lot of great moments from “Trainwreck,” a truly underrated recent comedy (I’m partial to this one). But even though it ends with a familiar, Hollywood ending dance scene, Schumer makes it work. She’s not just hamming it up the way Will Ferrell or Melissa McCarthy might. She’s confident and comfortable in her own skin even as she’s hilariously outmatched by the cheerleaders around her.

Last F—able Day

I hesitate to include this brilliant “Inside Amy Schumer” sketch because, by design, Schumer is the fourth funniest woman in it. But she has a way of bringing out the best in other funny ladies, and the gag is an inspired commentary about women of a certain age in Hollywood.

Is Dwayne Johnson Hollywood’s Most Bankable Star?

Is Dwayne Johnson Hollywood’s Most Bankable Star?
With less than stellar reviews on top of an already cursed genre, it’s a wonder “Rampage” wasn’t a total flop at the box office.

Well, it’s not a total wonder. After back and forth projections showed “Rampage” wrestling with “A Quiet Place” to see who would come out on top at the box office last weekend, there is one main reason the video game adaptation secured the crown: Dwayne Johnson.

“It’s good old star power at work here,” box office analyst Jeff Bock said. “There’s not that many people in this day and age who can pull this off.”

Did Johnson break the video game adaptation curse? Probably not. Did his sheer star power push “Rampage” to the No. 1 spot at the worldwide box office? It seems likely.

Rampage” bowed with $34.5 million in North America, along with an impressive $114 million overseas for a global total of $148.6 million.

Michelle Pfeiffer movies: 15 greatest films, ranked worst to best, include ‘Fabulous Baker Boys,’ ‘Batman Returns’

Michelle Pfeiffer movies: 15 greatest films, ranked worst to best, include ‘Fabulous Baker Boys,’ ‘Batman Returns’
Michelle Pfeiffer’s new film “Where is Kyra” has been getting strong reviews for the actress and marks the first time in many years that she has had a leading role in an awards caliber feature film. Pfeiffer plays an unemployed woman desperately trying to survive while she cares for her sick mother.

Pfeiffer has had a nearly 40-year career on screen and has managed to overcome being known at first just for her looks. While her beauty was prominently on display in many of her first roles she quickly became more than just a pretty face and plunged herself into deeper and more complex roles. Pfeiffer’s first professional acting job was on a TV series version of the film “Animal House” called “Delta House.” Her character on the TV show was referred to simply as “The Bombshell.” This debut hardly signaled the arrival of an actress good enough
