Stephen Moyer Joins Fox's X-Men Pilot

Mon, 27 Feb 2017 06:00:00 UT

Actor Stephen Moyer, arguably most famous for playing Vampire Beel on HBO's True Blood, has joined the cast of Fox's unnamed Marvel pilot, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The potential series will focus on the ordinary parents of mutant children who are forced underground in order to hide from the government, because God forbid anyone not overreact to something as cool as superpowers.



The Walking Dead: Does Eugene's Choice in Video Games Hint at His Plan?

Mon, 27 Feb 2017 06:00:00 UT

In this week's The Walking Dead, Eugene (Josh McDermitt) lives everyone's dreams by sitting on his butt, playing video games and eating microwave popcorn. OK, it's not ideal since his marathon gaming session is interrupted by an all-hands meeting in which a doctor is thrown into a furnace, but all things considered, things could be going worse for Eugene. Because it's time to over-examine one detail from the episode and hop aboard the crazy train. Yar's Revenge was released in 1982, and it involves a block of about 16 pixels that's supposed to be a robot fly or something zipping around a black rectangle with a vertical stripe of static (which is a "safe zone") in the middle and a bad guy shaped like two low-res pieces of pizza on the far right of the screen. [...] Eugene isn't one of Negan's men despite the fridge full of fresh veggies, but let's look at it from the Yar's Revenge angle because this is the internet and we always overanalyze things. The Walking Dead could have picked any video game for Eugene to play, but it chose a game that most of its audience wouldn't even recognize.



The Bachelor: The 5 Most Awkward Moments of the Fantasy Suites, Part 1

Mon, 27 Feb 2017 06:00:00 UT

Three commercial breaks previewed Raven telling Nick she's never had an orgasm. What was really interesting about it was Raven openly talking about what was expected in the fantasy suite.



Supergirl Boss Discusses What's Next After Shocking Jeremiah Reveal

Mon, 27 Feb 2017 06:00:00 UT

Dean Cain made his long-awaited return on Monday's Supergirl as Alex (Chyler Leigh) and Kara's (Melissa Benoist) father. [...] Jeremiah's homecoming wasn't the happy family reunion his daughters or good friend J'onn (David Harewood) had expected or hoped it would be. After rescuing Jeremiah from a Cadmus transport van, Alex and Kara were so overwhelmed by having their father back in their lives that they didn't even stop to consider the scenario through which it came to pass. The only person who was remotely suspicious of Dr. Danvers' sudden return was Kara's new boyfriend Mon-El (Chris Wood) and he made his feelings known -- at Jeremiah's welcome home dinner, no less -- which naturally put a strain on the couple's very, very young relationship. [...] Mon-El was eventually vindicated when it was revealed at the end of "Homecoming" that Jeremiah had not only been been heavily upgraded by Cadmus -- he had a cyborg arm and was able to shield his thoughts from J'onn -- but was also working with the villainous Lillian Luthor (Brenda Strong) and Cyborg Superman (Harewood) to steal the DEO's national alien registry. Once you start to see how deep the rabbit hole goes and where his loyalties lie one way or another, it's heavy. It's an interesting debate in the next episode between Jeremiah and Alex [about] if his plan is any more humane. [...] some of the talking points in the episode, I think, are reflective of the current debate in our world about dealing with immigrants, which we were very conscious of and wanted to speak to that. If we really deployed him at his full comic book power arsenal no one would be able to pull anything off of anybody. Battle lines are drawn a little bit, which is interesting because it's -- what I love about this episode and the next episode is, no one's really wrong in a way. Everyone is doing what they're doing out of a sense of love and to keep the people that they love safe. [...



6 Ways Viola Davis Can Get That Grammy She Needs to Become EGOT

Mon, 27 Feb 2017 06:00:00 UT

Hearing a Viola Davis awards acceptance speech legit counts as going to church, which is exactly why setting them to music Now That's What I Call Viola Davis: Remember that tribute to her hard-working dad in her Golden Globes speech? ("He had a fifth-grade education and didn't know how to read until he was 15.")



The Oscars Has a Final (We Hope) Explanation for That Best Picture Flub

Mon, 27 Feb 2017 06:00:00 UT

In the entertainment world's biggest whodunnit of the year (which is saying a lot considering in just two months we've seen Mariah's "sabotage," Beyonce's Grammy dreams die and Halle Berry's Oscar hair) there's still a very real attempt to get to the bottom of what happened when Faye Dunaway announced that La La Land won Best Picture over Moonlight at Sunday's Academy Awards PricewaterhouseCoopers, the accounting firm that's responsible for tallying the winners and protecting that information until it's revealed on the Oscars stage, has obviously spent the day apologizing and offering explanations ("The presenters had mistakenly been given the wrong category envelope," a previous release said) and now there's a follow up:

Star Trek: Discovery Gets a Premiere Time Frame

Mon, 27 Feb 2017 06:00:00 UT

CBS chief Les Moonves announced during the Morgan Stanley Technology, Media & Telecom conference that the network is eyeing late summer or early fall to launch the next iteration of the sci-fi franchise, according to Deadline. Discovery was originally supposed to launch in May, but was pushed back to give the team more time after showrunner Bryan Fuller departed the series. The premium streaming network launched The Good Wife spin-off The Good Fight earlier this month. Discovery will bring in a huge surplus of subscribers due to the franchise's popularity on Netflix.



Trump Says Oscars Flub Was Because It Was so Focused on Politics (and Him)

Mon, 27 Feb 2017 06:00:00 UT

Following what was a very eventful Academy Awards ceremony on Sunday night, America waited with bated breath for our Commander-in-Chief to condense his thoughts on the ceremony into 140 characters or less and some ALL CAPS. Speaking with the alt-right publication which was run by his buddy Steve Bannon, Trump said that the big flub at the Oscars -- when La La Land was mistakenly and temporarily awarded Best Picture over actual winner Moonlight -- was, naturally, about him. The Oscars were sprinkled with political discussion, some direct (such as Gael García Bernal speaking out against Trump's wall) and others more subtle (multiple references to diversity and inclusion), with all instances apparently in opposition to Trump's actions since he's become president.



Training Day Will Pay Tribute to Bill Paxton This Week

Mon, 27 Feb 2017 06:00:00 UT

The new drama will pay tribute to star Bill Paxton, who passed away following complications from heart surgery Saturday Feb. 25 on this Thursday's episode, Variety reports. Paxton's death does not affect production of Training Day's first season as the midseason entry wrapped production on its 13 episodes in December. In Training Day, Paxton played detective Frank Roarke, a veteran cop who goes about his job his own way, sparking controversy.



Moonlight Wins Best Picture Oscar in Crazy Moment

Sun, 26 Feb 2017 06:00:00 UT

In a stunning awards season shocker, Moonlight snatched the Best Picture win at the 89th Academy Awards Sunday, knocking the predicted fave La La Land from its high perch following Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway's massive gaffe reading the wrong winner name. The stirring coming-of-age story about a black man's reconciling his harsh Miami upbringing with his sexuality gained momentum largely through word of mouth and critical praise.



What We Know So Far About the Biggest Twist in Oscars History

Mon, 27 Feb 2017 06:00:00 UT

The Oscars ended with a surprise twist when, in the middle of the La La Land producers' acceptance speeches for Best Picture, it was revealed that the actual winner was Moonlight. Warren Beatty, who helped announce the (wrong) winner with Faye Dunaway, returned to the stage afterwards to offer some explanation for what went down. At first, some people assumed the duo must have accidentally picked up Stone's envelope from after Leonardo DiCaprio announced her win. It turns out, there are actually two sets of envelopes. [...] it apparently took until halfway through the acceptance speeches for La La Land for the stagehands and PricewaterhouseCoopers accountants to realize Dunaway and Beatty had made a huge mistake.



Oscar Snubs and Surprises: The Academy Didn't Go Gaga for La La Land

Mon, 27 Feb 2017 06:00:00 UT

[...] everyone loves Moonlight and its poignant coming-of-age tale, and the film benefited from the preferential ballot used for Best Picture, which prioritizes consensus over passion, and is now the second film after Braveheart to win Best Picture without winning the Producers Guild Award, Directors Guild Award or Screen Actors Guild Award for ensemble. The 20-time loser won on his 21st nomination when Hacksaw Ridge upset La La Land in sound mixing -- a category in which musicals have typically thrived. No film has won Best Picture without a SAG ensemble nod since Braveheart 21 years ago, when the ensemble award was first introduced at SAG. Damien Chazelle, 32, broke an 85-year-old record to become the youngest Best Director winner -- making it the 25th picture/direct split in history and the fourth in the past five years -- while Emma Stone is the fourth woman to win Best Actress for a musical after icons Julie Andrews, Barbra Streisand and Liza Minnelli. Hidden Figures won the SAG ensemble award and Lion took home two BAFTAs, for adapted screenplay and supporting actor for Dev Patel. The films and four-time nominee Hell or High Water were the only Best Picture nominees to leave the Dolby with a goose egg. [...] Casey Affleck (Manchester by the Sea), who was the frontrunner the whole season, edged out the Fences star for his first win, making him and Ben the 12th set of brothers to win Oscars. Miranda, who was up for penning "How Far I'll Go" from Moana, had an outside shot of upsetting La La Land in Best Original Song, where the musical had two nominees but had funneled its support behind eventual winner "City of Stars." On the other end of the spectrum, Viola Davis got one step closer to an EGOT, taking home the supporting actress Oscar for Fences to become 23rd person and first black actor to win the Triple Crown of Acting (Oscar, Emmy and Tony).



Billy Eichner Predicted the Oscars' Second Big Flub: Including a Living Person in the In Memoriam

Mon, 27 Feb 2017 06:00:00 UT

After the already notorious Oscars mix-up, in which La La Land was accidentally announced as the Best Picture winner instead of Moonlight, the Difficult People star quipped on Twitter that if anyone included in the In Memoriam segment was still alive, they should speak out now. When honoring the late costume designer Janet Patterson, the Academy accidentally used a photo of Australian film producer Jan Chapman, Patterson's friend and collaborator (they both were Oscar-nominated for their work on The Piano in 1994). Janet was a great beauty and four-time Oscar nominee and it is very disappointing that the error was not picked up.
