Susan Sarandon
Susan Sarandon had to phone in her appearance on Monday's Oprah Winfrey Show - because she couldn't get a flight to Chicago, Illinois from New York.

The actress was billed to appear live on Winfrey's sofa, alongside fellow Oscar winners Sissy Spacek and Holly Hunter, but had to scarp her plans due to the Big Apple's ongoing winter white-out snowstorm.

At the top of the show Winfrey explained, "Susan got up at four in the morning and tried to get here... but all flights were canceled."

The Dead Man Walking star joined the get together via satellite.

31 Days Of Horror: "The Burning" (1981)

October 6th, 2010 12:30pm EDT
The Burning (1981)
With horror movies it’s pretty easy to come up with some bullshit excuse as to why you’re subjecting yourself to what is typically, by almost every conceivable measure, a pretty repugnant piece of shit movie. The Friday the 13th series has an unreasonably fierce puritanical streak, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre is about regional tension and the economic repercussions of automating farm labor, and every zombie movie ever is about how we’re the real monsters. 1981’s The Burning is about children getting stabbed to death with garden shears. Oh, and seeing some full frontal 80s girls. That’s it. ...

Holly Hunter has sparked speculation she's engaged to longterm partner Gordon MacDonald after sporting a ring on her wedding finger during a TV appearance.

The "Saving Grace" star has been dating the actor since 2001, and Hunter gave birth to the couple's twin boys in 2006. Now it seems MacDonald has proposed.

During an appearance on "The Late Late Show" on Thursday, Hunter flashed a sparkling band on her wedding finger - prompting host Craig Ferguson to ask, "Do you have some news?"

Hunter replied, "Well, you know" before Ferguson continued: "It's a bold statement right there."

5 Horror Remakes We'd Like To See

September 11th, 2009 12:14pm EDT
Phantasm
With "Sorority Row" hitting theatres today - a remake of the 1983 slasher classic - it truly seems as if every horror property of the last 30 years has been given a do-over.

From big names (Jason, Freddy, Michael Myers) to cult classics ("Prom Night," "The Hills Have Eyes," "The Last House on the Left"), horror remakes are big business.

But believe it or not, there are a few horror properties out there that haven't been touched, and more importantly, have the potential to be improved by being remade.

Emmy Nomination Surprises, Snubs And Shouldn't Be Nominated

How I Met Your Mother
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...

Best Celebrity Voice Acting Roles

June 12th, 2009 9:22am EDT
Kung Fu Panda
Voice acting is a much more lucrative business than one might imagine, with the actors in question providing their voice for animated movies, video games, television shows, voice overs, and anything else that requires a voice but no face. Some actors do only that kind of work, giving themselves a certain amount of fame in that industry, such as "The Simpsons" cast.

Everything changed when voice acting became a business not only for unknowns, but also an attractive fad for celebrities who wanted to broaden their horizons ... or make a movie "for the kids." Now it seems that no animated...

TV's Most Kick-Ass Female Detectives

February 16th, 2009 9:00am EST
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. Epatha Merkerson and the women of the CSI franchise, powerful, well-written female pro...

Who Will & Who Should Win An Emmy

September 18th, 2008 9:22am EDT
30 Rock
Ah, the Emmys, the most entertaining awards show and often the most frustrating. Why is it so frustrating? Because the voters get it wrong. They get the winners wrong more often than casual sports bettors. In fact, they get it so wrong that predicting the winners is often a fool's errand since it's impossible to determine what will strike the Academy's fancy as the reasons for their choices are as mystifying as the results.

Luckily, Starpulse.com has one such fool. So it's time for a round of everybody's favorite game: Who Will Win and Who Should Win?

Coen Brothers Spotlight: From Their Beginnings To 'Burn After Reading'

Coen brothers
Many things come to mind when thinking about the films of Joel and Ethan Coen. Dark witty humor, highly stylized production and costume designs, reoccurring actors, clever and often poetic dialogue, and above all some of the best character names in celluloid history.

Just look back at some of the brothers' most memorable characters: The Snoat brothers in Raising Arizona, Bernie Bernbaum and Eddie Dane in Miller's Crossing, Lou Breeze in Barton Fink, Norville Barnes in The Hudsucker Proxy, the Swedish-Americans Marge Gunderson and Jerome Lundegaard in Fargo, Jackie Treehorn and Jesus Q...

TV Stars Who Deserve Emmy Nominations On July 17, Part 1

Last week, I helped the Emmy panelists decide upon which series to cast their vote for, and now it's the actors' turn.

The Emmy blue ribbon panel received a group of lists from the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences last week. These were top ten lists from which they were to select the five nominees for the big Emmy show. They will view select episodes from each nominee and base their decision on what they see.

It's nigh on impossible to glean an accurate impression from a small sample, especially when it comes to acting. Many characters are given complex arcs from which the...

Oldies But Goodies: Older Stars Who Keep On Acting

Dustin Hoffman
Everyone basically accepts that the entertainment biz is youth oriented. But in spite of the Hollywood bias, there are some older actors who keep at it. Below is a top 10 list of older folks who are still making it in showbiz (and we dare say these actors could teach Hollywood's current young whippersnappers a thing or two about how to have a long career).

10. Ellen Albertini Dow, age 89.

What's that? Her name doesn't ring a bell? Well, trust us, you know who she is. She had to make our list because at almost 90 Ellen is still lining up project after project. With her cute voice, b...

The writers' strike has officially infiltrated awards season. The Golden Globes have been reduced to a lackluster news conference. That means no best and worst dressed list. No boozy celebrities making a fool of themselves. All that remains is an hour-long meeting at the Beverly Hilton Hotel with angry WGA picketers surrounding the premises.

So, until the Hollywood powers-that-be finally buckle down and give the writers what they want and deserve, we here at Starpulse are going to call the winners and losers. We looked at reviews, other expert predictions, viewer attitudes and who we ...
