TV Review: The 2019 Tony Awards
The last time James Corden hosted the Tony Awards, the CBS late-night host was understandably subsumed by events onstage and off; not merely were his last bits on the Tonys stage, in 2016, occurring against the backdrop of a “Hamilton” sweep, but they were also happening in the wake of a massacre of predominantly gay people of color at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando earlier that morning. Corden’s presence on that broadcast was low-key and affirming; whatever one thinks of Lin-Manuel Miranda’s declaration that night that “love is love is love is love,” it was Miranda’s, and not Corden’s, voice that set the evening’s tone.

Corden, though as much or more a part of the actual broadcast this year, felt similarly absent from his second Tonys hosting gig, and not because he was swamped by events — or, at least, nothing particularly new. Given so many potential

Howie Mandel gets booed on ‘America’s Got Talent’ for refusing to advance Emerald Belles high-kickers [Watch]
Season 14 of “America’s Got Talent” is starting out with a “boo” thanks to judge Howie Mandel. The Canadian-born comedian failed to be impressed by the Emerald Belles, ages 14-18, during Tuesday’s second audition episode and so he gave them a negative critique. Luckily, fellow judges Simon Cowell, Gabrielle Union and Julianne Hough were all impressed by the high school students and their three “yes” votes outweighed Howie’s lonely “no” vote, so the high-kicking drill dream are advancing to the next round. Watch the “Agt” performance video above.

‘America’s Got Talent’ episode 2 recap: Were there any Golden Buzzer acts on June 4? [Updating Live Blog]
“America’s Got Talent” season 14 continues on June 4 with another two-hour episode showcasing the best (and worst) auditions. In this phase of “Agt,” an act needs at least three of the four judges to give them a “yes” vote to advance to the next round. If two or more judges buzz the act, it is immediately eliminated.

Each judge, along with host Terry Crews, has one chance to hit the “golden buzzer” and send an act straight through to the live performances. Gabrielle, a new addition to the judging panel, was inspired to press her golden buzzer on the premiere by the performance of singer and pianist Kodi Lee, who is both blind and autistic,.

The format is the same this year as last, with “America’s Got Talent” airing initially just on Tuesdays with these first six weeks devoted to the auditions that took place around the country. Then

‘Agt’ by the numbers: Gabrielle Union and Julianne Hough are the 10th and 11th ‘America’s Got Talent’ judges across 14 seasons

Throughout its now-14 seasons on the air, the judging panel at “America’s Got Talent” has gone through many different facelifts — but hey, this is Hollywood after all. For the current cycle, which debuted May 28 on NBC, the reality TV show welcomed Gabrielle Union and Julianne Hough alongside returning judges Simon Cowell and Howie Mandel. The ladies replace longtime panelists Heidi Klum and Mel B, who both opted not to return following the winter’s popular “America’s Got Talent: The Champions” spinoff series. Union and Hough are now the 10th and 11th judges to appear on “Agt” — see the full list in our photo gallery below.

How Gabrielle Union Made All of Her Wildest Dreams Come True

How Gabrielle Union Made All of Her Wildest Dreams Come True
Should Gabrielle Union ever blank on just how far she's come, she has a tangible reminder to look back on.  Two decades after the Omaha native burst into the public consciousness with back-to-back roles in such beloved fare as She's All That, 10 Things I Hate About You, Love & Basketball and, of course, Bring It On, she still maintains her annual practice of crafting a vision board.  "As goals manifest, I've been able to look at my boards and say, 'Damn, I put in a lot of work and deserve it.' That's helped me to stop feeling suspicious of joy," she explained to Redbook last year....

Film Review: Diane Keaton in ‘Poms’

Film Review: Diane Keaton in ‘Poms’
Cheerleading is a sport that commands attention. It whips the crowd into a controlled fervor, getting people off their feet and cheering with excitement. Unfortunately, director Zara Hayes’ “Poms” barely manages to do the same with its story about a group of retired women who reclaim their vitality and challenge societal norms by forming a cheerleading squad. Though it aims to be more than just a mashup of “Bring It On” and “Book Club,” the inherently uplifting and endearing facets of its heartfelt sentiments are overtaken by artificial packaging and stale execution.

As a pessimistic New York City transplant, Martha (Diane Keaton) faces her greatest challenge yet: living in the impossibly peppy retirement community of Sun Springs, Ga. The lavish, well-maintained property fosters cheery dispositions and relaxed lifestyles — things a cynical curmudgeon like Martha despises. But her former life in the city was unbearably lonely, so she seeks a drastically different atmosphere.

‘Poms’ Film Review: Diane Keaton and Jacki Weaver Bring Good Cheer to Senior Sports Comedy
There’s no shortage of spirit among the cast of “Poms,” Zara Hayes’ new cheerleading and retirement-age comedy hybrid, but not even this much pep can cover up all of the film’s missteps. Although it’s hard to stay disappointed for long when Diane Keaton is just one exasperated sigh from making you laugh again.

Life got in the way of Martha’s (Keaton) youthful dream of becoming a cheerleader, but her fondness for the sport remains through her older years. After a grim diagnosis of cancer, Martha sells off the bulk of her belongings and sets off from New York City to a retirement community in Georgia. She’s greeted by Southern belles and by Sheryl (Jacki Weaver), an overly friendly neighbor with a fondness for pink flamingos and bright makeup. Among the many arbitrary rules of her new home, Martha must find a club to participate in,

‘Poms’ Cast Hopes Hollywood Continues to Make Movies for and About Older Women
It was a blue carpet pep rally as Diane Keaton, Jacki Weaver, Pam Grier and Rhea Perlman debuted their new film “Poms” on Wednesday night in Downtown Los Angeles.

But much like their characters in the film, the actresses’ cheers weren’t for sports teams. Instead, they were celebrating a Hollywood system that is hopefully becoming more inclusive for older women.

Keaton and Weaver star in “Poms” as Martha and Sheryl, two senior citizens who decide to start a cheerleading club at their retirement community.

“I think in this day and age, people realize that you don’t have a ‘use by’ date,” Weaver told Variety. “Some of us can keep on going. Some of us still look to the future and make the most of the present.”

But as much as Hollywood has evolved, who could have ever predicted a movie featuring a “Bring It On”-style scene of

Listen: How Gabrielle Union Bet on Herself and Changed Her Brand
Actress Gabrielle Union said she was nearly 17 years past the expiration date of her mass appeal when she got the brand partnership of her dreams.

“They tell you that after 26, ‘Honey, hang it up,'” Union said on the latest episode of the Variety podcast “Strictly Business.” The episode was recorded during a keynote conversation at Variety’s recent Entertainment Marketing Summit in Los Angeles.

“Get prepared to play long suffering mothers who set up jokes and you don’t get to be a star. You’re past the ingenue stage. Your best days are behind you as a brand ambassador unless you can sell bleach. They don’t ever position it as being in a position of power,” she said.

The star of teen cult classics like cheerleading comedy “Bring It On” and critically praised adult dramas like Bet’s “Being Mary Jane,” Union was used to the roller coaster of show business.

Ben McGrath (Chris Klein) had major league potential playing professional baseball, but his hopes to play ball literally get crushed.

His unorthodox boss, Mel (Jon Lovitz), convinces him to manage their eclectic softball team full of misfits and strikeouts. Together, will they have enough spirit to rally and win it all?

Ok, so The Benchwarmers didn’t set the world on fire but I did enjoy the ridiculous underdog film for what it was – a stupid, laugh out loud comedy product from the “Happy Gilmore” factory of filmmaking. In the grand

Dushku, whom you might know from Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Bring It On, alleged that Weatherly's comments included remarks about her appearance, "spanking" her, and rape jokes.

It's pretty much widespread knowledge at this point that Ariana Grande's "Thank U, Next" music video broke the internet - or at least YouTube.
