September 23rd, 2013 1:00pm EDT
Kaley Cuoco
The stars sizzled at Sunday night's 65th Annual Emmy Awards. While finding out who wins is exciting, the real fun begins when the celebs show up on the red carpet.

Who won best dressed? It's a tough call. Kaley Cuoco dazzled in a strapless Vera Wang chiffon gown with an exposed corset.

"The Big Bang Theory" star and her new boyfriend, tennis star Ryan Sweeting, made their red carpet debut on Friday at a pre-Emmys party.

"Veep" star Julia Louis-Dreyfus also impressed in a silver strapless gown by Monique Lhuillier. It's hard to believe she's 52!

This Week's Best Celebrity Fashion: Scarlett Johansson, Dianna Agron & More

September 14th, 2013 9:00am EDT
Scarlett Johansson & Joseph Gordon Levitt
Joseph Gordon-Levitt recently said Scarlett Johansson's sex appeal is "off the charts," and we couldn't agree more.

The two actors star in the upcoming film "Don Jon" and attended the movie's premiere at the Toronto Film Festival in Canada together.

ScarJo looked amazing, as usual, in a little black dress. She pulled her hair back and wore a pearl choker. She looked elegant and classic.

Gordon-Levitt told Men's Health: "Scarlett is a gorgeous, gorgeous woman, but if you just compare purely physical features, plenty of girls are just as gorgeous. But she creates this extra something. It's...

Review: James Wan Continues Good And Bad Streak With 'Insidious: Chapter 2'

September 13th, 2013 1:07pm EDT
Insidious 2
What’s really uncanny about James Wan as a director is how consistent he is creating films with both good and bad moments.  With the exception of the horrible misfire "Death Sentence," virtually every Wan film for me contains some real bits of genius alongside some daft story turns that give pause.  It’s no clearer than in his latest horror opus "Insidious Chapter 2," a meaningful and at the same time inane follow up to his much more even-toned first film.  Can sincere and stupid exist in the same movie – it can if you’re James Wan.

For those who remember from the first film (and those who...

2013 SAG Awards Fashion: Black, Navy Blue & Neutral Gowns Dominate

Jaimie Alexander
As we inch closer to the Academy Awards, tons of stars celebrated themselves at the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Awards on Sunday night.

Jaimie Alexander of "The Last Stand" (above) was one of the few celebs who showed some skin on the red carpet in a low-cut black Marc Bouwer gown. Most opted for more conservative ensembles in black, navy blue, and other neutrals.

A handful stood out in bright colorful gowns, including Jessica Chastain and Kaley Cuoco in bright red and Lea Michele in a bright pink dress.

Jennifer Garner, whose husband Ben Affleck is earning accolades for "Argo," looked ele...

A source revealed to UsMagazine.com, "They were sitting in a booth and he had his arm around her and they would kiss from time to time. They definitely tried to keep a low profile."

Sam Worthington
Avatar star Sam Worthington has been crowned the Fun Fearless Male of the Year by editors at Cosmopolitan magazine.

The Australian hunk was named the winner of the annual accolade at a star-studded bash in New York City on Monday.

Explaining their choice, Cosmo bosses state, "Just as Russell Crowe and Brad Pitt are getting a little too old to fulfill our hottie-action-hero fantasies, along comes 35-year-old Sam Worthington. Our crush kicked in when the Aussie actor played a soldier with a heart of gold in Avatar and gained momentum as he showed off more skin and grit in Clash of the Tit...

84th Annual Academy Awards - Red Carpet Fashion (See Pictures!)

Oscars 2012
The Academy Awards aren't just about the movies - they're about the fashion and what the stars wore on the red carpet at the year's biggest event.

This year, much like the ceremony itself, there were few surprises and all the stars looked fabulous on the red carpet outside the Kodak Theater in Los Angeles. Well, okay - Kristen Wiig's brown J. Mendel dress and Meryl Streep's gold Lanvin gown? Not so much.

This year's highlights include Angelina Jolie looking stunning - although also a bit thin - in a black Atelier Versace dress that's almost an exact match of the one Jennifer Aniston wore ...

'Project Runway' 9 Recap: A Team Challenge Scarier Than 'Insidious'

September 9th, 2011 10:15am EDT
Judging panel
Honestly, "Despicable Me" was scarier than "Insidious." But that's a discussion for another time. Right now it's all about "Project Runway." More importantly, it's all about Joshua and what he will or won't have.

At the top of last night's episode, Joshua wakes up on the wrong side of the bed. Or he's still pissed about Anthony beating him in last week's challenge. Or he realizes he's just run out of pomade. Or the wind is blowing towards the west when he wanted it to blow in a southeasterly direction. Who knows? Whatever's stuck in Josh's craw is making him über-bitchy.

'Bridesmaids' Review: 'Two Jews On Film' Can't Stop Laughing From This Outrageously Funny Comedy (Video)

May 11th, 2011 2:00pm EDT
Bridesmaids
'Bridesmaids' is directed by Paul Feig and written by Kristen Wiig and Annie Mumolo. I have to say right off the bat... This is one of the funniest films I've seen since 'Hangover'.

From the opening scene, you know what kind of movie this is going to be. It's morning. Annie (Kristen Wiig) wakes up in bed next to Jon Hamm. His character doesn't even have a name. He's sleazy... He's rich and he drives a Porsche. Annie runs into the bathroom, puts on lipstick, fluffs her hair and gets back into bed. Jon wakes up, looks at Annie and very sweetly says...'I want you to leave but I don't ...

Trailer Talk: This Week In Movies - 'Source Code,' 'Insidious' & More

March 28th, 2011 9:25am EDT
Source Code
Given the strength of director Zack Snyder’s previous films “300” and “Watchmen,” his first original work “Sucker Punch” is a surprising disappointment. From a visual standpoint the movie is rock solid, with excellent art direction and an intense soundtrack to buttress it.

However Snyder claims that one of the story’s major goals is to comment on the objectification of women, which frankly it fails at in major ways. If you have not done so already, check out further thoughts in my review of “Sucker Punch.”

2010 Emmys: Who Should Win & Who Will Win

August 28th, 2010 1:00pm EDT
2010 Emmys
It’s a transitional year for the Emmys, meaning this is one of the more exciting races in recent memories. The flood of new nominees (brought on by a stellar development slate) means that we can no longer rely on the predictable Emmy voting to determine winners. Instead, this is a year where we can see many newcomers emerging and starting a whole new slate of predictable nominees.

Yes, that was a little cynical, but it’s the sad truth of the Emmys – habits are hard to break for the voters. Luckily, this year the virgin nominees have afforded them an extensive choice for brand new habits.

NEW YORK (AP) - The biggest shows of 2009 couldn't always be contained by the TV screen. There were breakout tabloid scandals with Jon and Kate Gosselin. A wannabe reality TV star crashed the White House. David Letterman's hanky-panky seized headlines. Oprah Winfrey grabbed the nation's attention as she began her long goodbye. This was TV run amok.

But in 2009 other shows proved outstanding on more manageable terms: as excellent TV shows. They include:

Review: 'Adam' Starring Hugh Dancy And Rose Byrne

July 29th, 2009 1:29pm EDT
Adam
It's interesting, on the surface, that Fox Searchlight has released two films within two weeks of each other -- "(500) Days of Summer" and, now, "Adam" -- with the similar theme of "boy meets girl." Again, perhaps, on the surface. In reality, these films could not be more different. While "(500) Days of Summer" tugs at the emotions that everyone has felt at some point, "Adam" shows us what it's like to observe a relationship where one party does not quite even understand human emotion.

Adam (played by a pretty fantastic Hugh Dancy) has Asperger's Syndrome. A condition that's a form of Au...

Peter Gallagher Discusses 'Adam,' An Offbeat Love Story Challenged By Asperger's Syndrome

"Adam," is the story of an off-beat romance between Beth (Rose Byrne) and Adam (Hugh Dancy) that is challenged by his affliction with Asperger's Syndrome -- an affliction that, as Wikipedia describes, is an "autism spectrum disorder, and people with it therefore show significant difficulties in social interaction." Peter Gallagher, who plays Beth's loving but very flawed father, Marty, joins us to discuss the new film (opening in limited release July 29) and to breakdown the complexity of his character.

Emmy Nomination Surprises, Snubs And Shouldn't Be Nominated

To paraphrase Ned Flanders, apparently an Emmy nomination is easier to get than an acceptance letter from Arizona State.

This morning, Emmy tried to one-up Oscar's new rule of ten by including six nominees in the acting categories and a whopping seven in the series categories. Yes, if you made a television series this year, or appeared on one, chances are you heard your name called in North Hollywood this morning.

With so many nominess, it seems impossible that any deserving performances or series were left out. Right? Sadly, no. And, of course, there are plenty of nominees who sh...
