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...

The Golden Globes Have Nominated More Kids Than You Think - but Not Many Have Won
In 2018, Elsie Fisher joined the ranks of the youngest actors to ever be nominated for a Golden Globe Award when she was recognized for her role in Eighth Grade - and she's just 15. Since the first Golden Globes in 1944, more than 40 actors have been nominated for a statue for their work before they even turned 19 years old. Some actors even racked up multiple nominations while still under 18, which is more than some actors three times their age can say.

Scroll through to familiarize yourself with this elite group of actors who were all 18 or younger on the day they were nominated for their awards, and settle in for the rest of award season. We think it's totally going to be a good one.

Of course most of the characters in The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel - the Manhattan-set comedy from Amy Sherman-Palladino that just kicked off its second season on Amazon - are fictional, but one key player is not: comedian Lenny Bruce. Played by Luke Kirby, Bruce shows up in Mrs. Maisel's pilot episode and has been a regular character ever since, mentoring Miriam Maisel in the New York comedy world and arranging a showcase for her at the end of season one.

But who was Lenny Bruce in real life? He was a very influential comedian who helped to advance the art of stand-up with his abrasive, satirical style that addressed everything from politics and religion to sex. He left a legacy that lives on in confrontational comedians such as Bill Maher and Jon Stewart.

Born in 1925, Bruce started his stand-up career in New

Constance Wu's Next Rom-Com Is About a Woman With a "Double Pregnancy" - Yes, That's a Thing

Constance Wu's Next Rom-Com Is About a Woman With a
Rom-com enthusiasts, bow down to your new queen: Constance Wu.

After starring in this Summer's biggest romantic hit, Crazy Rich Asians, the Fresh Off the Boat actress is reportedly doubling down on the genre, according to new rumors about her next film role. In an as-yet-unnamed romantic comedy directed by Glow star Kimmy Gatewood and executive produced by Elizabeth Banks, Wu would play a "charmingly chaotic woman who has to get her life together when she becomes pregnant with two babies from two different men."

Um, say what now?!

Yes, apparently Wu's character, if she does sign onto the film, will live out one of my actual nightmares when she endures a double pregnancy (though I'm sure her journey will be far less traumatizing). Savion Einstein wrote the screenplay about this case of "superfecundation," which is apparently a very, very rare condition that could, hypothetically, result in such a scenario.

A History of Nicki Minaj's Endlessly Complicated Love Life and Why She Prefers to Play Coy in Public
Remember when Drake tweeted that he had married Nicki Minaj? The could have been the end of it. Two rap super-stars, both fairly fresh on the scene, finding each other and deciding to hang on tight on this crazy ride we call life. Obviously that quickly turned out not to be true, but think of all the dating flow charts and spread sheets that wouldn't have ever been made if those two had taken each other off the market in 2010. Instead, Drake went on to alternately pine for Rihanna and date a slew of women, including, sort of, Jennifer Lopez and Serena Williams, before fathering a son, Adonis, last...

If You've Been Crushing on Zachary Levi Long Before The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel . . .
Somewhere along the line, Zachary Levi became one of Hollywood's favorite leading men - not that most people would know it. He's currently pulling double duty as a new addition to The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel and as the titular hero in the upcoming superhero film Shazam!. If you recognize him, you're definitely not alone.

Levi made his television debut in Big Shot: Confessions of a Campus Bookie, a made-for-tv movie in 2002.

How Dolly Parton Became the Unofficial Fairy Godmother of Netflix's Dumplin'

Image Source: Getty / Rich Fury

Dolly Parton is the type of celebrity who, the more you find out about her, the more impossible it is not to admire her.

The iconic singer-songwriter has not only been making music since the 1960s when she burst on the scene with her debut album, Hello, I'm Dolly, but she's also dabbled in being an actress, record producer, and philanthropist (her charity donated its 100 millionth book in February). On top of all that, she's also an incredibly savvy businesswoman, which means she's maintained ownership over most of her own songs over the last few decades, which is what allowed her to lend her music to Netflix's latest rom-com hit, Dumplin'.

The film follows the story of Willowdean Dickson (Danielle Macdonald), a "self-proclaimed fat girl" who decides to regain her confidence by entering the beauty pageant run by her thin, judgmental mother (Jennifer Aniston) in her small Texas town.
