That's a great thing!

We'll find out the winners on January 8 when the 74th Annual Golden Globe Awards airs live on NBC hosted by Jimmy Fallon. The grand dame of the award season, Meryl Streep, will receive the 2017 Cecil B. DeMille Award! So deserving!

Bravetown | Review

Home of the Brave: Duran’s Debut a Neutered Examination of Grief During Wartime

There’s a war going on, though not one specifically referenced, mentioned or discussed. But then Daniel Duran’s directorial debut, Bravetown, seems happy examining exactly that, the ways in which people are unable to communicate clearly their emotions relating to the traumas that war has inflicted on them. Perhaps in an effort to elevate the material to a timeless realm, screenwriter Oscar Orlando Torres (Instructions Not Included) remains curiously vague on details, the only definitive reference pertaining to the Gulf War.

Josh Harvest (Josh Till) is a moderately troubled teen living with his single mother (Maria Bello) in New York. A rising DJ, a mistaken overdose lands him in court with a mandated sentence of twelve months rehabilitation. His overworked mother is done worrying about him and sends him off to live with his

Indie Drama Bravetown Sends an NYC DJ to the Hinterlands

Indie Drama Bravetown Sends an NYC DJ to the Hinterlands
Daniel Duran's Bravetown is a textbook example of substance-over-style success: Aside from a showy opening (a tracking shot that snakes through a club, cribbing freely from Carlito's Way, Boogie Nights, etc.), the movie satisfies mainly due to its affecting ensemble and considerable emotional intelligence. Living in New York with his bottle-reliant mother (Maria Bello, in a cameo), seventeen-year-old Josh (Lucas Till) carves out some meaning for himself as an on-the-rise DJ. But when an episode with a pill yields an overdose — it's clear the drug is suspicious when the guy offering it dangles it in front of the camera — Josh is mandated to travel west and reside with the father (Tom Everett Scott) who left him at birth.

Josh Duhamel, Alice Eve Go Beyond Deceit

Josh Duhamel and Alice Eve have joined Anthony Hopkins and Al Pacino in legal thriller Beyond Deceit, to be directed by scribe Shintaro Shimosawa (Fox’s The Following) in his directorial debut.

Malin Akerman, Byung-hun Lee, Glen Powell and Leah McKendrick will co-star in the pic, which centers on an ambitious young lawyer (Duhamel, replacing Dan Stevens after the latter actor dropped out over conflicts with Beauty and the Beast) who takes on a major case against the ruthless executive of a pharmaceutical giant, only to find himself framed for murder.

Eve will take on the supporting role of his wife, but it’s unclear whether Hopkins or Pacino will be playing the chief antagonist. Adam Mason and Simon Boyes (red-hot SXSW selection Hangman) penned the script, which Shimosawa then rewrote.

Beyond Deceit is just one more screen credit for Duhamel and Eve, who are each racking up tons right now.

Interview: 'Battle Creek' star Josh Duhamel on his character's secrets and lies
In a visual flourish courtesy of pilot director Bryan Singer, Special Agent Milton Chamberlain is introduced in the world of "Battle Creek" from a low angle. Above his head, a circle of lights forms a halo. Milt Chamberlain is an angel. Milt Chamberlain is a boy scout. Milt Chamberlain is a golden boy. But Milt Chamberlain isn't exactly what he seems to be. Or at least Battle Creek Pd Detective Russ Agnew (Dean Winters) is convinced that Chamberlain isn't what he seems to be. But every time Russ thinks he's uncover the dark secret that his new partner is hiding, we discover that the secret isn't really the truth. It's a reluctant partnership that forms the spine of "Battle Creek," a quirky, surprisingly funny procedural that was created by "Breaking Bad" maestro Vince Gilligan and then developed as a series by "House" maestro David Shore. Our first impression of Chamberlain,

'Touch's' Maria Bello comes out as gay in new in-depth profile

  • Pop2it
Actress Maria Bello, most recently on TV on Fox drama "Touch" and NBC's "Prime Suspect" adaptation, has come out of the closet in a fascinating New York Times article about what it means to have a "partner" and telling her 12-year-old son Jackson about her same-sex partner, Clare (pictured here with Bello in October 2013).

Bello writes:

I have never defined myself by whom I slept with, but I know others have and would.

...

I have never understood the distinction of "primary" partner. Does that imply we have secondary and tertiary partners, too? Can my primary partner be my sister or child or best friend, or does it have to be someone I am having sex with?

...

Jack's father, Dan, will always be my partner because we share Jack. Dan is the best father and the most wonderful man I've known. Just because our
