Kate Winslet made a statement with silence during her acceptance speech at the 2009 Oscars, refusing to thank producer Harvey Weinstein after winning the lead actress Oscar for The Reader.

"That was deliberate. That was absolutely deliberate," Winslet told the Los Angeles Times in an interview Saturday. "I remember being told, 'Make sure you thank Harvey if you win.' And I remember turning around and saying, 'No, I won't. No, I won't.' And it was nothing to do with not being grateful. If people aren't well-behaved, why would I thank him? »

8 hours ago

Last October, The Walking Dead's seventh season debuted with one of the most-watched episodes of the entire series. Long-time fans – and even a handful of haters – tuned in to see the resolution to the "Who did Negan bludgeon?" cliffhanger, in one of those rare 21st century TV moments shared by over 15 million people at once.

After the premiere, however, the show's usually noisy buzz quieted down to something like a faint hum – which grew even softer as the winter's batch of episodes gave way to spring's bounty. That's too bad: Yes, »

20 hours ago

Last week, The Deuce staged a war of words that saw its combatants, Candy and Rodney, criss-cross their stretch of 42nd Street. This week's episode ("Why Me?") tries a different but equally effective tactic: From the big-picture meta-plot to the individual storylines, everything seems headed the same way all at once.
