Harry Shum Jr. Named Ambassador for the 2019 SAG Awards

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...

We're Really Trying to Get Into the Royal Crowd After Seeing Princess Beatrice's Latest Outing

The New York Public Library had a regal guest in the vicinity on Monday. Princess Beatrice of York was in attendance at the Third Annual Berggruen Prize Gala, and when she wasn't serving us an entrée of style, she was flashing a bright smile at cameras. The 30-year-old British royal donned an all-black outfit with fringe details and a clutch purse as she enjoyed the philanthropic event.

She spent the evening with a number of other prominent figures and celebrities, including Karlie Kloss. The two posed together for a few snapshots while talking and laughing. Beatrice also even got a few photos with the chairman of the Berggruen Institute, Nicolas Berggruen. The Berggruen Prize Gala is held every year to award a notable figure in the fields of philosophy and culture with a $1 million prize.

Beatrice certainly isn't one to shy away from going to events and galas. Earlier in November,

Why a Scripted Selena Quintanilla Series Is Netflix's Best Decision

Netflix is no stranger to taking on the stories of real-life people. There are hit docuseries like Making a Murderer about Steven Avery and the upcoming Conversation with a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes, and historical scripted dramas like The Crown about Queen Elizabeth II and Narcos, which tells the story drug kingpin Pablo Escobar. The streaming platform is doing it again with Tejano music legend Selena Quintanilla. The just-announced Selena: The Series will be scripted—and that's the best decision Netflix could make. Describing the series as the official story of Selena Quintanilla, the series is set to be a "coming of age story following Selena as her dreams come true and all the heart-wrenching and...

Tom Holland and Chris Pratt Cast as Brother Elves in Pixar's Onward
In the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Spider-Man (Tom Holland) and Star-Lord (Chris Pratt) met only briefly before they suddenly vanished—along with half the universe's population—in Avengers: Infinity War. Luckily, they will get to work together again in Disney-Pixar's Onward. Set in a "suburban fantasy world," the animated adventure introduces teenage elf brothers "who embark on an extraordinary quest to discover if there is still a little magic left out there." "At Pixar we try to create stories that come from some kind of personal truth," director Dan Scanlon said in a statement. "This film was inspired by my own relationship with my brother."

Amy Poehler Is Ready For a Parks and Rec Reunion, and Um, Same!

Amy Poehler Is Ready For a Parks and Rec Reunion, and Um, Same!
It's been three years since we tearfully bid adieu to Parks and Recreation, and we've pretty much been pining for a reboot ever since the emotional series finale aired. As it turns out, dedicated fans aren't the only ones on board with the idea of reuniting Pawnee's finest - leading lady Amy Poehler is, too. "I'm technically available," Poehler said at the 10th anniversary celebration dinner of Smart Girls, the organization she founded. "I have like six of Leslie's blazers in my closet, so anytime."

From 2009 to 2015, Poehler played the role of Leslie Knope, the competitive deputy director of the Pawnee Parks and Recreation Department, a proud waffle-lover, and an even prouder feminist. When the NBC sitcom ended, there were hints that Leslie would go on to become president. While addressing the possibility of a reunion, Poehler said she hadn't given much thought to Leslie's storyline, adding that maybe she'd be "president of the moon.

Camilla Posing With a Tiny Pony Called Harry Is the Holiday Gift You Didn't Know You Needed
If you thought the cutest royal photos of 2018 would feature one of the young royals, you were sorely mistaken. Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis played a good game, but they've just been pipped to the post by a cute redhead called Harry. No, not that one. This Harry is a mini Shetland pony, and he totally stole the spotlight as he made the acquaintance of the Duchess of Cornwall when she attended a Christmas Carol Service for the animal welfare charity Brooke Action for Working Horses and Donkeys in London on Wednesday.

The pair, who I like to think are now best friends, were also joined by Ollie the donkey, who has definitely been perfecting his photo face for some time. The three were photographed at the Guards chapel in Westminster, and from the look on Camilla's face, we think she was pretty overwhelmed by the adorable little pony.

This "Baby, It's Cold Outside" Cover Is Going Viral For Its Questionable Lyrics About Consent

This
The lyrics of "Baby, It's Cold Outside" just got a questionable makeover.

Over the last few years, "Baby, It's Cold Outside" has gone from being that cutesy duet you probably first heard in Elf to a song banned by radio stations over the holidays. The tune, which was written by Frank Loesser and popularized in the 1949 film Neptune's Daughter, has left fans feeling more and more uncomfortable due to its suggestive lyrics, which have led many to wonder if they describe an instance of date rape.

In a scene where a male character is trying to keep a woman from leaving, she sings "My answer is no," before he responds that she can't possibly leave because of the heavy snow. "What's the sense of hurting my pride?" he asks as she tries to leave again, before she eventually exclaims, "Say, what's in this drink?" It's that line in particular that

What Sets the SAG Awards Apart From the Rest

There's nothing like being honored by your peers. Winning an Oscar or an Emmy comes with an undeniable amount of prestige, while box office returns and ratings give you a window into how the public feels about your art, but to have the people who know your craft the best--your former co-stars, your audition competition, your time slot rivals--deem your performance the best in your field that year is an unparalleled sense of validation. Enter the Screen Actors Guild Awards. One of the younger award shows on the block, the SAG Awards were established only 25 years ago by what was then known as the Screen Actors Guild, the union formed in 1933 to represent film and television principal and background performers...
