2012 Golden Globes fashion
The Golden Globes are the first big awards show of the season, and the stars came out in colorful ensembles to attend one of Hollywood's most prestigious events leading up to the Academy Awards.

There were very few fashion missteps at this year's event. "Homeland" actress Morena Baccarin wore a daring black dress that showed quite a bit of cleavage (is that appropriate?), while "Ringer" star Sarah Michelle Gellar took a chance with a blue and white tie-dyed gown (too bohemian?).

There wasn't a lot of flash on the red carpet. Few stars wore sequins (Laura Dern, Madonna, Diane Lane and did)...

Emily Deschanel Talks Real-Life Pregnancy & Pregnancy On 'Bones'

September 17th, 2011 12:00pm EDT
Emily Deschanel Fit Pregnancy
If Emily Deschanel’s character on the Fox TV series Bones, Dr. Temperance "Bones" Brennan, is decidedly awkward socially, Deschanel is anything but.

(As you might be able to tell from their similarly striking blue eyes, her sister is actress-singer Zooey Deschanel.)

May 31st, 2011 1:22pm EDT
The Good Wife
Another television season has come and gone with the usual blitzkrieg of shocking deaths, double-crosses, surprise pregnancies, and aggravating cliffhangers. It was a varied batch of season finales: some were amazing; others were lackluster; and a few finales left me counting the jumping sharks. I can’t watch every finale, but here’s a sampling of the awesomely good and the appallingly bad.

Let’s break it down.

September 9th, 2009 10:24pm EDT
Zooey Deschanel
Actress Zooey Deschanel grew up believing her older sister was an alien who had been sent to Earth to kill her. The 29 year old spent her early years suspicious of her actress sibling Emily, who stars in TV show Bones, after she claimed to be an extra-terrestrial life form.

Deschanel believed the story for many years and puts Emily's tall tales down to an overactive imagination.

She says, "I grew up believing my sister was from the planet Neptune and had been sent down to Earth to kill me. I believed this because my sister Emily convinced me of it when I was a toddler. I think she'd s...

TV's Most Kick-Ass Female Detectives

Cagney and Lacey
Once upon a television season, fans of police dramas and crime procedurals didn't think detectives could ever get more hard-boiled than Vic Mackey of "The Shield" or Andy Sipowicz of "NYPD Blue." Thankfully, we were wrong. Not only are there an increasing number of take-no-prisoners police detectives and home-sleuths on the case, but many of them are wearing skirts. From Poppy Montgomery, Marianne Jean-Baptiste and Roselyn Sanchez in "Without A Trace" to Kathryn Morris in "Cold Case," "Law and Order's" S.

Best TV Couples That Aren't Together - But Should Be

February 13th, 2009 9:00am EST
House
There are a few unifying themes that you can find in almost any television show: drama, comedy, and yes, even a touch of romance. Comedies have plenty of drama (Hello Pam/Jim drama in The Office) and drama can have moments of comedy (everything Hurley says on Lost), but they all tend to have a focus on relationships. Even Law & Order, a cut and dry procedural, has a pairing here and there.

Yet there's a rule for shows that if a couple has great chemistry and sexual tension, don't let them get them together! It'll ruin the show! This has been the case a few times, but here are a few no...

Sisters Emily & Zooey Deschanel showed up at the "Yes Man" Los Angeles premiere on Dec. 17 wearing black and white, respectively.

What motivates audiences to watch TV shows? Why spend time on a series that will, in all likelihood, repeat storylines, invent contrived hook-ups and ultimately regress into something that challenges the viewer to wonder why he/she even began watching in the first place?

What's worse is that the viewers know this is going on. People sit in front of the boob tube every night knowing that Paula's going to say something stupid (scripted?) on "American Idol" and one of the "ER" doctors (models) is going to sleep with either another doctor (model) or endure an emotional breakdown due to a ...

My opinions will be laid before you to judge, critique, and get angry over. On second thought, this might not qualify as a dream come true.

While making this list I followed a few self-imposed rules. First, I included only characters that are confirmed to be in the actual film, including the villain Maxwell Lord. You won't see my choices for Zatanna or the Green Arrow, sorry. Second, I ch...
