Susan Sarandon Proves Why TV Is the Right Place to Be (Exclusive)

Susan Sarandon Proves Why TV Is the Right Place to Be (Exclusive)
Susan Sarandon is no stranger to television.

In fact, the longtime actress starred in several TV films early in her career. But outside of a handful of notable recurring roles, Sarandon, who won a Best Actress Oscar in 1995 for Dead Man Walking, had never starred on a series until 2017, when she portrayed Bette Davis in Ryan Murphy’s new FX anthology series, Feud, which launched with Bette and Joan. It seemed like a role that Sarandon was destined to play, with her likeness often having been compared to that of Davis.

Yet, portraying the Hollywood legend -- an opportunity she’d been offered time and time before -- wasn’t something Sarandon was keen to do, especially when the scripts she read were nothing more than “bitchy one-liners.” “It’s not enough to think Bette Davis is cool,” the actress told Et earlier this year. “What do you do with her then? It’s really

‘Search Party’ Breakout John Early Has a Ball Playing a Mess Onscreen (Exclusive)

‘Search Party’ Breakout John Early Has a Ball Playing a Mess Onscreen (Exclusive)
“I don’t know people who are just the right balance of quirky, I only know people who are too much,” John Early tells Et.

It’s easily a sentiment that applies to the indelible characters Early has already created in his relatively short yet rising career -- most notably the shameless narcissist-turned-murder accomplice Elliott Goss on the TBS black comedy Search Party. The series, which returned for an even darker and more hilarious second season in November, sees Elliott unraveling in spectacular fashion -- making 2017 another standout year for the actor.

“I was really touched when I read all the scripts for this season,” Early tells Et of returning to Search Party, which also stars Alia Shawkat, Meredith Hagner, John Reynolds and Brandon Micheal Hall. “I just felt like [co-creators Charles Rogers and Sarah-Violet Bliss] knew that I would have so much fun sh*tting in my pants, having a rash and watching my hair fall out.”

How Aubrey Plaza Broke Out of the Box in 2017 (Exclusive)

How Aubrey Plaza Broke Out of the Box in 2017 (Exclusive)
To the naked eye, it looks as though Aubrey Plaza is reinventing herself. The 33-year-old actress, famous for her portrayal of the lovably sardonic April Ludgate on NBC’s Parks and Recreation, has spent the last year portraying characters far different than her familiar depictions of eye-rolling best friends in wacky comedies.

But to Plaza, it’s just a matter of scheduling. “Being on a television show for seven years, it's hard to break out of that box,” she says, speaking by phone with Et. “I guess to everyone else it's a reinvention, but for me, it's something that I've always been.”

With three projects in 2017 -- FX’s Legion, Ingrid Goes West and The Little Hours -- that showcased some of her best acting to date, Plaza has proved once and for all that she is a formidable talent, not just a sitcom trope.

Her year started off strong with a complex role on the first season

SAG Awards Will Be Presented Entirely by Women, Kristen Bell to Host

First-ever SAG Awards host Kristen Bell in “The Good Place”: NBC/Justin Lubin

The Screen Actors Guild will stand with women at its 24th annual awards ceremony. According to The Hollywood Reporter, women will present each statuette at the January 21 event. This gesture is SAG’s way of supporting women in the wake of the myriad sexual harassment and assault stories that have come out of Hollywood in the past couple months. “The Good Place’s” Kristen Bell will also serve as the SAG Awards’ first-ever host.

“Beginning with the Women’s March in January, it’s been the year of the woman,” SAG Awards Ep Kathy Connell explained. “This is a unifying salute to women who have been very brave and speaking up.”

Of course, men will not be entirely absent from the ceremony. The male SAG winners will take the stage to accept their honors and it

Get Ready For Another Mystery - The Sinner Is Probably Coming Back For Season 2

This week's Golden Globe nominations yielded quite a few twists, and The Sinner's surprise nominations are no exception. Not only did the surprisingly fresh murder mystery earn a slot in the best limited series category, but Jessica Biel also earned a best actress nod. No one was more surprised than Biel herself, who shared her thoughts in a postnominations interview with Entertainment Weekly. "I"m thrilled," she said. "I don't know what else to say. I'm proud of it." In terms of the Golden Globes, The Sinner faces stiff competition. The series sidles up with Big Little Lies, Fargo, Feud: Bette and Joan, and Top of the Lake: China Girl. Biel is nominated alongside Jessica Lange, Susan Sarandon, Nicole Kidman, and Reese Witherspoon. And while the prospects for a win may not be great (Big Little Lies already swept at the Emmys), the benchmark means something else exciting for

Paris Hilton Argues with Photographer Jean Pigozzi Over Who Invented the Selfie

Paris Hilton was a purveyor of some of the biggest cultural moments of the last decade. She made Juicy Couture sweatsuits cool. She coined the phrase, “That’s hot.” But one thing she didn’t do — invent the selfie. (Just don’t tell Hilton that!)

In November, Hilton claimed that she invented the selfie back in 2006 with a snap of her posing with Britney Spears. Unsurprisingly, Twitter went wild proving the star wrong. They shared photos of of Geena Davis and Susan Sarandon taking a selfie in 1991’s Thelma and Louise, Madonna taking a selfie in 1985’s Desperately Seeking Susan

SAG Awards 2018 Full TV Nominations List: Netflix Dominates, While HBO’s ‘Big Little Lies’ Leads

SAG Awards 2018 Full TV Nominations List: Netflix Dominates, While HBO’s ‘Big Little Lies’ Leads
Netflix binged on Screen Actors Guild Awards last year, winning four of the eight major TV awards — including both drama and comedy ensemble prizes (for “The Crown” and “Orange is the New Black”) — and it appears destined to repeat in 2018. The streaming service dominated the 24th Annual SAG Awards nominations roster on Wednesday morning, cleaning up with 19 nods overall — ahead of second-place HBO (12).

Netflix’s nominees were spread out among some of its most critically acclaimed series, including “The Crown” and “Stranger Things” on the drama side, and “Glow” and “Orange is the New Black” in comedy. The streamer also landed multiple nods with “Ozark” and “Grace and Frankie,” while SAG favorite Robin Wright, now the sole star of “House of Cards,” scored a nod.

Also in the hunt: Hulu, which entered the SAG derby with “The Handmaid’s Tale.” But just like the Golden Globe nominations earlier this week,

SAG Awards TV Predictions 2018: Why ‘The Deuce’ and ‘Glow’ Could Disrupt the Race

SAG Awards TV Predictions 2018: Why ‘The Deuce’ and ‘Glow’ Could Disrupt the Race
The Golden Globes are traditionally TV’s awards disrupters. With so many new shows nominated, it elevates them long enough to (potentially) make a difference at the Emmys. But the SAG Awards are a more telling barometer of industry enthusiasm.

Actors make up a large chunk of the TV Academy membership — much more so than the 80-odd members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association — which means seeing what they’re rewarding in December can often predict what might be a player when Emmy season begins next spring.

With so many shows launching in April to take advantage of Emmy voting, series that premiere in the fall need Globes and SAG Awards love to keep buzz alive through the winter and into the spring. Shows like “The Deuce,” “Glow,” “Ozark,” “Mindhunter,” “Godless,” “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel,” and “Smilf” are aiming for a little extra attention right now.

Paris Hilton Says Lindsay Lohan Crashed Her Girls Night Out with Britney Spears — in 2006

Paris Hilton is throwing some shade at Lindsay Lohan, 11 years after the two stars were photographed together with Britney Spears.

The photo, taken in 2006, featured Lohan, Spears, and Hilton grinning inside of a car during a night out. It shocked fans who believed all three were feuding at the time, and the photo was dubbed “The Holy Trinity.”

In an interview with MTV Australia, the heiress revealed the girls night out was only intended for two.

“Actually, it was just Brit and I out,” Hilton said. “And then chased us to the car and got in. She wasn’t invited.

75th Golden Globe Nominations – In An Industry Of Snubs It’s Hard To Stand Out

Award season is a world of snub, complaints, and second-guessing, but the recent announcement of The Golden Globe nominations already has people talking, and tweeting. Among the most noteworthy misses, in a year when the nominations are mostly academic, is The Big Sick and Wonder Woman, both of which got no attention at all from The Golden Globe Awards.

Of course, everyone is going to have their favorites, and with several critics groups already announcing their lists/awards, there is always something that has to be left out, but a lot of people have to be surprised by some of the nominations, especially since Ridley Scott’s All the Money in the World recently had to change stars, and kicked out indie darling Greta Gerwig from a spot in the Director noms.

Take a look at the full list and let us know what you think.

Golden Globes Nominations: At Least It Was a Good Year for Strong Female Roles

Golden Globes Nominations: At Least It Was a Good Year for Strong Female Roles
Looking across the Golden Globe film and TV nominations, it’s a banner year for movies driven by some of the most unlikely female characters to get the big-screen treatment.

In “The Shape of Water,” Sallie Hawkins plays a mute cleaning woman in 1962 Baltimore who has an supernatural encounter. In “The Post,” Meryl Streep plays a woman in her mid-50s who is thrust by circumstance into a leadership role. Margot Robbie and Allison Janney deliver tour de force performances in “I, Tonya,” a movie that on paper sounds like B-grade cable material. And the great Laurie Metcalf is the hero of “Lady Bird” and its touching look at mother-daughter and familial dynamics, for which Saorise Ronan received a best actress, comedy nom.

None of these are projects tailored to the conventional notions of the audiences who drive movie-going or indie film success. The shutout of female directors from the Globes race is particularly striking this year

Golden Globe Nominations Are In, and Once Again Women Directors Are Shut Out

Lady Bird capturing our feelings well (“Lady Bird”)

Lady Bird” is officially the best-reviewed film ever on Rotten Tomatoes. The coming-of-age dramedy has been scoring award after award, giving many hope that writer-director Greta Gerwig would be a shoo-in come Golden Globe and Oscar time. Well, Golden Globe nominations are in, and Gerwig scored a nod for Best Screenplay and “Lady Bird” is up for Best Picture — Comedy or Musical, but once again the Best Director category is composed entirely of men. No Gerwig. No Dee Rees for “Mudbound.” No Patty Jenkins for “Wonder Woman.”

Fortunately, female filmmakers fared better in the Best Animated Film category, which is noteworthy because women are especially underrepresented in that field. Two of five films in the running are women-directed or co-directed: Nora Twomey’s “The Breadwinner,” the story of a girl who cuts her hair and disguises herself as a boy so she
