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...

Tom Cruise & Katie Holmes
Every year some of our favorite famous couples decide it isn't working out for them anymore and they break up. Sometimes fans are surprised by the announcement, and other times we wonder why it didn't happen sooner.

One of the most shocking splits was Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes. The actress stunned fans over the summer when she announced her five-year marriage to Cruise was over, and she filed to legally end the union on June 28, citing "irreconcilable differences" for the split.

Katie will receive $400,000 a year in child support for the couple's daughter, Suri. The payments will con...

TV's Most Hilarious Ladies

This season’s hit comedies seem to be funnier than ever, and we think it is due to all the entertaining ladies who capture the audience’s attention, have us falling off our seats laughing and keep us tuning in each week for more. Here’s our list of the biggest riots on TV:

Eliza Coupe may not be as recognizable as most of the other ladies on our list but once you see her on Happy Endings, you will never forget her face. The New Hampshire native plays Jane, the hilarious older sister of Elisha Cuthbert and wife of Damon Wayans Jr. who is a tad neurotic but loveable all the same. You may rec...

Will Arnett And Amy Poehler Separate After Nine Years Of Marriage

September 7th, 2012 8:37am EDT
Blades of Glory
Amy Poehler and Will Arnett are ending their union after nine years together. We don't believe in love anymore.

Their rep confirmed the news to People on Thursday, though no more information is available on the split. The pair married in August 2003 and has two children: Archibald William Emerson "Archie" Arnett, born in October 2008, and Abel James Arnett in August 2010.

Neither Poehler nor Arnett gave any indication there were problems. The pair often poked fun at each other during interviews. "I'm clearly the dumbest character in the movie," Arnett told USA Today while promoting Blade...

The Secret World Of Arrietty
A family of miniature people find their existence threatened due to a forbidden friendship in "The Secret World of Arrietty," an adaptation of author Mary Norton's beloved children's book "The Borrowers."

Headstrong and full of energy, 14-year-old Arrietty (voice of Bridgit Mendler) is just like any other adolescent girl -- except for the fact that she's only a few inches tall. Arrietty and her family are Borrowers: a race of tiny people who live among the regular-size humans undetected, and only emerge to scrounge miniscule amounts of essential living supplies from well-stocked cu...

This Friday’s episode of Who Do You Think You Are? features Rob Lowe and his journey to discover his ancestors. Since his family tree on Geni is already connected to the World Family Tree, we thought it would be fun to see how he was related to some of his celebrity pals!

Rob currently stars in the critically acclaimed comedy Parks and Recreation as city manager Chris Traeger. Did you know he is also related to a couple of his co-stars? That’s right, Ms. Leslie Knope herself, Amy Poehler, is Rob Lowe’s 19th cousin!

'Parks And Recreation' Film Three Different Finales

Parks and Recreation
The stars of hit TV show Parks And Recreation filmed three versions of the season four finale to make sure fans don't find out the ending.

Filming on the fourth series of the comedy, which stars Amy Poehler as a mid-level bureaucrat, recently came to an end and the producers went to great lengths to keep the storyline under wraps.

The series will finish with Poehler's character facing an election, and co-creator Michael Schur has now revealed the outcome was filmed three times and could change at the last minute.

He tells The Hollywood Reporter, "We shot actually three different endin...

'Parks And Recreation' - 'Bowling For Votes' Recap

January 27th, 2012 3:46pm EST
Bowling for Votes
This week’s episode of Parks and Recreation brought to mind an interview I read recently with Chris Onstad, the writer-artist behind Achewood, a popular web comic about cats who make fun of The Cure. After nine years of churning out content for Achewood—comics, blog posts, books, t-shirts, mugs—Onstad’s output started to trickle until, suddenly, it stopped. To put it mildly, his fans freaked out. The reason why he stopped doesn’t really matter in this context, but in the interview, Onstad touches on how the small amount of negative feedback he received negated much of the wild praise that h...

'Parks And Recreation' - 'Campaign Ad' Recap

Campaign Ad
I can’t think of another show with actors as skilled at playing stupid as some of the ones on Parks and Recreation. Be it the insane, witless ramblings of the Pawnee general public or Andy’s never-ending parade of catastrophic accidents, it really makes you wonder if Leslie and co. should look into the content of Pawnee’s water supply. Tonight, we meet perhaps the most delightfully dumb specimen to ever cross paths with the Parks department: city council candidate and heir to the Sweetums candy fortune Bobby Newport, played by the wonderful Paul Rudd.

For all of the hubbub around Leslie’s ...

2012 Golden Globes Fashion: Who Rocked The Red Carpet & Who Didn't?

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)...

Trailer Talk: This Week In Movies - 'Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows,' 'Carnage,' & More

Trailer Talk: This Week in Movies
Sadly, I haven’t caught last week’s pick yet: “Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy.” However I did have the misfortune of watching the David Gordon Green comedy “The Sitter,” which turned out to be a complete dud. If you haven’t already read my review, give it a look to find out why I think Jonah Hill deserves better.

Arriving in theaters this week are the Guy Ritchie sequel “Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows,” the Roman Polanski parental dramedy “Carnage,” the third Chipmunks adventure “Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chip-Wrecked,” and the Roger Corman themed documentary “Corman’s World: Exploits of a...

Parks and Recreation - 'Citizen Knope' Recap

December 9th, 2011 2:48pm EST
Citizen Knope
Generally speaking, this season of Parks and Recreation has been strong, but these last couple of episodes have by far been the best. The first half of the season concentrated largely on how splintered the Parks Department had become with the departure of Tom, and Leslie off chasing her dreams of political office while trying to ignore her continued affection for Ben. This led to much of the cast doing their own thing, with the writers throwing them a bone every once in a while in the form of C or D plots that never really amounted to anything. Sometimes these diversions worked—April and An...

'Parks And Recreation' - 'The Trial Of Leslie Knope' Recap

December 2nd, 2011 3:21pm EST
The Trial of Leslie Knope
Of all of the characters that we’ve seen roaming around the muraled corridors of Pawnee city hall, Chris Traeger is the one that we really know the least about. We know all about his health food kick, his obsession with exercise and being a stickler for the rules—we know all of that… but there’s still something naggingly mysterious about the man. Chris dragging Leslie in front of an ethics committee for her relationship with Ben is a chance to illustrate how little we’ve come to know Chris. The trial forces Chris away from being the affable eccentric we’re familiar with, even when he’s self...

'Parks And Recreation' - 'The Treaty' Recap

The Treaty
Is it just me or was that episode rather light on laughs?

Sure, the concept of Leslie and Ben’s personal trouble causing a model war to break out at Pawnee’s model UN is funny enough in concept—with some effective barbs at the actual UN—but overall, this felt just like a retread of last week’s otherwise great episode when Leslie and Ben decided that they could remain friends after some awkward tension built up when they were forced to work together. This week, I guess, puts that decision to the test when Leslie invites Ben to help her run the model UN for Pawnee’s little Knopes and Bens (y...

Fake apocalypse or not, your priorities change on your last day on earth. Long term plans and practicality both go out the window and eking out one last moment of happiness becomes paramount. And even though the Apocalypse that’s bearing down on Pawnee is of the crackpot loon variety, the implications of it have loaded the members of the Parks department with whimsy.

With her concerns about her political future put on hold for an evening, Leslie’s thoughts go right back to Ben. The pair of them are assigned to stand watch over park as Pawnee's favorite cult, The Reasonablists, pow-wow arou...

Pop star Kelly Clarkson has launched an online bid to land a guest role on hit TV sitcom Parks And Recreation, despite confessing she's "a bad actress."

We're two episodes into the third season of Hung. What can you say about what we can expect for Damon in season three?

Damon's kind of stepping out of the spotlight, if you will, because he's been getting himself into too many crazy situations. He's re-evaluating himself and figuring out what makes him happy. He and his sister [Darby] deci...

'Parks And Recreation' - 'Pawnee Rangers' Recap

Pawnee Rangers
This week we mainly follow the conflict between Pawnee’s two competing youth groups: the bleak, all boys survivalist group the Pawnee Rangers, led by Ron Swanson, and its all-girl antithesis the Pawnee Goddesses, created by Leslie Knope, who never met a gender role she couldn’t break. Like when he coached basketball last year, Ron becomes even more rigid when children are in his tutaliage. His single rule for his Rangers? Be a man. Other than that, he gives them a box and a piece of canvas and sets out to teach his boys the virtue of solitude, contemplation and surviving the wild.

Now that Tammy 1 has been sent back to Hell or… wherever she’s from (Indianapolis?), "Parks and Rec" is back on the Knope 2012 campaign. Like every single other politician in the world, Leslie has written a book. Rather than write about what a wonderful visionary she is (again, like every single other politican in the world), Leslie has written a comprehensive history of Pawnee… with her picture on the cover for some reason.

To promote the book, Leslie is making the Pawnee media rounds—apparently opting out of her favorite radio show Crazy Ira and The Douche for classier pastures, a goofba...

Hello fellow Pawneeians! I’ll be guiding you through this fourth (fourth!) season of NBC’s “Parks and Recreation”. So let’s get kicking.

The end of last season saw most of the parks department moving towards brighter futures, making their lives about a million times more complicated than they were before. Leslie and Ben decided to keep their forbidden romance from the rest of the office, which makes for a potential scandal when Leslie’s political career suddenly sprouts legs. Tom resigned so he can follow his dreams of being—well Jay-Z, I guess. Even Andy is looking to moving on from his s...
