Harry Shum Jr. Named Ambassador for the 2019 SAG Awards
Make way for the 2019 SAG Awards' new ambassador! Harry Shum Jr. has claimed the coveted spot this year—and deservedly so, as he's appeared on both the big and small screens. Most notably, perhaps, is his role as Magnus Bane on Freeform's Shadowhunters: The Mortal Instruments, which earned him the Male TV Star of 2018 award at the E! People's Choice Awards last month. Shum, of course, also starred as Charlie Wu in Warner Bros.' Crazy Rich Asians. And let's not forget he is a former SAG Award winner (Outstanding Ensemble in a Comedy Series) for his work on Glee. The actor, who last month announced that he and wife Shelby Robara are having a baby girl, can add this new title to...

Shrill: See the First Photos of Aidy Bryant in Hulu's Empowering New TV Comedy
Aidy Bryant is taking the lead in a new comedy series officially set to premiere on Hulu on March 15, and now we have our first look at it.

So far, the streaming service has ordered six episodes of Shrill, a show based on the memoir of blogger Lindy West (Shrill: Notes From a Loud Woman) that is described as "the story of a fat young woman who wants to change her life - but not her body." The series's production team already boasts a number of well-known names in comedy, including Elizabeth Banks, Parks and Recreation's Alexandra Rushfield, and Saturday Night Live's Lorne Michaels. Bryant and West joined together to adapt the book and cowrite the story for the pilot, while Banks and Michaels will serve as executive producers, with Rushfield also pulling double duty as cowriter and showrunner. Glow director Jesse Peretz will helm the pilot episode,

If You See Us Crying Over Alessia Cara's Destiny's Child Medley, It's Just Emotions Taking Us Over
Are you ready to clear your schedule for the rest of the day? Alessia Cara performed a Destiny's Child medley that you'll be listening to on repeat, with no time for interruptions. The 22-year-old stopped by SiriusXM and performed five classic hits from the iconic girl group, whose final lineup gave us the talents of Beyoncé, Kelly Rowland, and Michelle Williams (try to say their names without tearfully remembering that they've broken up).

The Canadian-born singer lent her signature raspiness to "Say My Name," "Bills Bills Bills," "Survivor," "Bootylicious," and "Emotion," giving each song a slow, soulful rendition that Destiny's Child would surely appreciate. And those runs, honey! Obviously you can never beat a classic, but Cara's medley is definitely worth a second - or seventh - listen. Watch the video above!

Jennifer Lopez and Milo Ventimiglia Teamed Up to Play
You never know what to expect when you play a game on The Tonight Show. That's what Jennifer Lopez and Milo Ventimiglia learned while promoting their film Second Act on Tuesday night. Jennifer first joined Jimmy for a few rounds of "Can You Feel It?," a game where each person had to identify an object hidden in a box. While J Lo and Jimmy had their fair share of dramatic reactions to the secret items (the "Dinero" singer thoroughly dismantled a tiny snowman), things took an even funnier turn when Milo joins in.

The This Is Us actor plays J Lo's husband in their film, so it's only natural he showed up to lend her emotional support amidst this guessing game. During the last round, he vowed to go "all in" and rapidly stuck his hand into a bowl of guacamole, alongside Jimmy and Jennifer. While those two quickly realized what they'd touched,

Brace Yourself! It Sounds Like Miley Cyrus Will Be in an Episode of Black Mirror
If you're eagerly awaiting the release of Black Mirror's fifth season, we have an exciting detail to tie you over as the anticipation builds. It sounds like Miley Cyrus will be starring in an upcoming episode of the Netflix series, according to her sister Brandi Cyrus.

Last month, rumors began circling about the 26-year-old singer's unexpected appearance on the show after she was spotted filming in South Africa. Brandi revealed that she accompanied Miley on this trip during the Dec. 11 episode of Your Favorite Thing Podcast With Wells and Brandi and shared details about her sister's experience.

Brandi never mentioned the show by name, but she did confirm that Miley filmed an episode alongside another Netflix star, Ozark's Marc Menchaca. It's no surprise that specifics about a potential Miley appearance are so hard to come by since the creators of Black Mirror are famously secretive about the arc of the show.

The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel Season 2 Takes Us on a Journey to 2 Brand-New Cities

Amazon's truly delightful, award-winning comedy The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel has returned for season two, which means your eyes are about to be treated to a visual feast. Not only does Miriam (Rachel Brosnahan) wow us with a deluge of colorful, glamorous ensembles, but the second season also whisks viewers out of the Upper West Side and the dingy comedy clubs in Greenwich Village to some seriously cool locations: Paris and the Catskills (I promise the latter is much more exciting than it sounds).

Note: minor spoilers for season two ahead!

The season begins with Midge and her father, Abe Weissman (Tony Shalhoub), venturing across the Atlantic in search of Rose (Marin Hinkle). It seems she's up and left their cushy life in New York City in favor of a simpler existence in Paris. If you're wondering how the show got all the scenes in the European city to look so authentic,

Expect to See These Netflix Shows Dominate Award Season

Expect to See These Netflix Shows Dominate Award Season
With the recent Golden Globe nominations, award season has officially kicked off. And while you may immediately think of movies when you hear "award season," TV is just as involved. TV series are celebrated at the Golden Globe Awards, the Critics' Choice Film + TV Awards, the British Academy of Film and Television Awards (aka the BAFTAs), and various Guild-specific shows.

There are so many platforms to watch TV shows on that it can be hard to keep up with all the different critically acclaimed shows. After all, there's no shortage of amazing, creative shows to watch, but not all of them are accessible on all platforms. Serious contenders like The Handmaid's Tale, Westworld, and This Is Us, for instance, are not available on Netflix; in fact, most shows that belong to premium cable channels such as Starz and HBO don't make deals with streaming platforms at all since they often

Elseworlds Part 3: Supergirl Saves the Day, Sets Up Next Year's Crossover
Remember when this crossover was fun and silly and was all about watching the wrong guys play the wrong people?  Tonight things got a little bit darker and somehow weirder, even as the crossover took on the endless sunshine of Supergirl. Deegan, previously played by Jeremy Davies, now inhabited the body of Superman and took over Star Labs, with Supergirl locked in the Star Labs pipeline.  With Barry and Oliver a little powerless and dressed adorably in matching leather jackets, all seemed a little grim. And ridiculous.  Cisco (Carlos Valdes) was an unexpectedly useful mob boss. James (Mehcad...
