Angelina Jolie Is Open To A Career In Politics
Angelina Jolie, who is promoting her latest film "Unbroken," told British ITV on Tuesday she would consider a political career "if I felt I could really make a difference."

One of the issues on her mind is the Syrian civil war. "We simply aren't doing enough," she told reporter Julie Etchingham.

Jolie has visited refugees from the conflict, which has resulted in thousands of deaths and millions of people displaced from their homes.

She explained: "We have overall a failing of international leadership when we have 51 million people displaced from conflict, more people displaced than sin...

Do The AMAs Foreshadow Potential Grammy Nominees?

Do The American Music Awards Foreshadow Potential Grammy Nominee
The AMAs are truly a popularity contest. The music fans select winners, which is a stark difference from the more prestigious Grammys. Often a gripe of music fans and critics alike are the sometimes odd, ‘out of touch’ choices by the Recording Academy. One that comes to mind is how Macklemore & Ryan Lewis cleaned up the rap categories, yet arguably the more transcendent artist, Kendrick Lamar, when home empty handed.

That said it could be argued both the AMAs and the Grammys have tremendous pros and bothersome cons. Even given the contrasts between both music awards show, the AMAs do...

'The Mindy Project' Recap: Blind Dates, Double Dates, Online Dates

November 26th, 2014 11:02am EST
The Mindy Project
What’s most impressive about tonight’s episode is how tightly plotted it is and how uniform the themes are. Usually, there is a clearly an A plot and a B plot and maybe a few little one liners for the cast. Tonight’s plots are interweaved together, showcasing these cartoonish characters as being more of family than anything else.

Annette is overbearing, over involved and judgmental, and Mindy does a great job of putting up with her. But when she interrupts her erotica bath with Danny, it’s another final straw that makes Mindy decide to take action. That means setting Annette up with a very...

'New Girl' Recap: Bangsgiving

November 26th, 2014 9:15am EST
New Girl
The best sitcom episode concepts are ones that result in stories that seemingly write themselves. A few weeks after “Background Check,” the triumphant high point of Season 4, “New Girl” followed its own lead by keeping the majority of Thanksgiving in the loft (or “Bangsgiving,” as Schmidt insisted). The holidays and being confined to one space are classic situations that lead to people making significant revelations. And Schmidt’s plan to have everyone bring a date for someone else to dinner was a recipe for amplifying that formula many times over.

Schmidt may have wanted the matchmaker...

'The Voice': Top 10 Eliminations Put One Coach Against The Ropes
Tuesday night was another elimination night on The Voice - and the results were incredibly interesting.

As the show narrowed its roster from ten to eight - with just three weeks left in season seven - one coach is now down to their final artist (and it's not the coach you might suspect), while the reveal of America's vote proved to be telling for two singers.

But the eliminations were also blunted by the reminder that the pair of performers let go will remain eligible for the "wild card" finalist spot previously revealed last week.

It was three-time champion Blake Shelton who got the wor...
