Indie Spirits Host Aubrey Plaza Vows Awards Show ‘Will Not Be Boring’

Indie Spirits Host Aubrey Plaza Vows Awards Show ‘Will Not Be Boring’
Before she hosts the Film Independent Spirits Awards, Aubrey Plaza wants to make one thing clear: She definitely doesn’t have strep throat, despite a recent profile in The New York Times that suggested otherwise.

“Why would they write that I had strep throat? I didn’t want people to know that,” she said in an interview with IndieWire late last week. “No, I don’t care. I’m great. Everything’s great. I feel a lot better.”

Well, there’s one other thing she wants to make clear about the show: “I will not be boring,” she said. “It’s a live show. I have no idea what’s going to happen. I will say that I feel like it is my duty to prove to the world why a host matters, and how great a host can be. And be the hostiest host of all.”

Stanley Donen, Who Reinvented the Movie Musical and So Much More, Dies at 94

Stanley Donen, Who Reinvented the Movie Musical and So Much More, Dies at 94
“Our love will last till the stars turn cold.” That line from “Singin’ in the Rain” perfectly sums up the sensibility of its director, Stanley Donen: absolute sincerity wedded to knowing irony. When Gene Kelly’s Don Lockwood says that to Debbie Reynolds’ Kathy Seldon, he’s actually quoting a line from the cornball movie he’s just made with Jean Hagen for which he has contempt: “The Duelling Cavalier.” But what Lockwood comes to recognize is that, polished just right, hokum can be made to sparkle — and can convey genuine feeling. Is “Our love will last till the stars turn cold” silly? Sure. But it’s beautiful too, and who wants to be so cynical as not to recognize that?

Donen, who died February 23 at age 94 after a nearly 70-year career across film and theater, recognized what so few do today: that two seemingly contradictory things can be true at the same time.

After months of speculation, we finally have a better idea of what Annette Bening's character in Captain Marvel, Supreme Intelligence, is all about.

Inside Oscars Rehearsals! Tina Fey, Serena Williams’ Daughter and a Classic SNL Reunion
“If I fall in my dress, just leave me for dead,” Tina Fey deadpanned to Amy Poehler and Maya Rudolph as the buddy-trio walked toward center stage to rehearse lines they’ll deliver as presenters during Sunday’s 91st Academy Awards. “Or you can just drag me.”

No can do, responded Poehler: “If any of us fall, the other ones have to go down, too.”

Quips, laughs and a touch of anticipatory nerves marked a packed afternoon of Oscars rehearsals at Hollywood’s Dolby Theatre as a steady stream of dressed-down, if still dazzling A-listers ran through lines on a Teleprompter,

The Dirt: Watch the First Wild Trailer For Netflix's Mötley Crüe Biopic

  • Popsugar
Are you ready to rock? Because the first trailer for Netflix's Mötley Crüe biopic, The Dirt, has arrived, and the film looks like a wild ride.

The biopic, directed by Jeff Tremaine, is based on the rock band's 2001 autobiography, The Dirt: Confessions of the World's Most Notorious Rock Band. Douglas Booth, Iwan Rheon, Colson Baker (aka Machine Gun Kelly), and Daniel Webber star as the core four members of the band - Nikki Sixx, Mick Mars, Tommy Lee, and Vince Neil - as they go from a mismatched group of misfits playing small rock clubs in Hollywood, to becoming one of the most notorious rock 'n' roll groups in history. Judging from the trailer, watching their rise to international fame will be deeply entertaining.

The Dirt hits Netflix on March 22 and also stars Pete Davidson, Leven Rambin, and David Costabile.

Go See Robyn's Comeback Tour or Regret it Forever - It's Your Decision

  • Popsugar
Until last night, I'd never seen Robyn in concert before. After last night, I will see Robyn in concert again, as many times as I possibly can. The Swedish pop star returned to the stage on Feb. 22 for the first date on her world tour as part of the Red Bull Music Festival in Hollywood. And she was greeted by an overjoyed audience ready to be raptured up to the pop goddess's personal dance-music heaven.

Before Honey, it had been eight years since Robyn released her last album. In the gap between, she suffered the kind of personal blows that can derail a career and a life: the death of one of her closest musical collaborators and the breakup of her long-term relationship. So, from the moment she became almost, sort of visible on the all-white, space-age stage of the Hollywood Palladium - concealed partly by a curtain of guazey

The Haunting of Hill House Will Bring Another Classic Horror Tale to Life in Season 2

  • Popsugar

This week, Netflix gave us the news we've been desperately hoping for: The Haunting of Hill House will return for a second season sometime in 2019. It really should come as no surprise. After all, the show quickly took off when it premiered back in October 2018, because it stirred gripping fear into a cauldron with intense emotion. The question wasn't a matter of if the second season would happen. It was a question of what it would entail.

The plot thickens. If you read up on the cast and crew quotes about the second season, then you no doubt knew the Crain family would not be back in the show's second installment. "As far as I've ever been concerned with this, the story of the Crain family is told. It's done," creator Mike Flanagan told Entertainment Weekly. "I felt like the Crains have been through enough, and we

Dumplin' Heartthrob Luke Benward Just Might Play John Ambrose in the Tatbilb Sequel
After the credits for To All the Boys I've Loved Before start to roll, the Netflix rom-com slips in an extra scene that hints at what's to come for Lara Jean: the reappearance of one of her childhood crushes, John Ambrose McClaren. Despite assuming that the letter Kitty secretly sent to him got lost in the mail, he shows up on the Covey family's doorstep with a bouquet and Lara Jean's letter, seemingly ready to profess his love. Peter Kavinsky (Noah Centineo) better watch out.

Now that we know the upcoming sequel to the film is officially in the works - which is tentatively being called To All the Boys I've Loved Before 2 (the second book in Jenny Han's bestselling series is titled P.S. I Still Love You) - you might be wondering how the new character fits into Lara Jean's life, but also who's going to play him.

Michael Bublé Gets Blown Away by This Fan After Asking Her to Sing During His Concert
On Feb. 20, Michael Bublé held a concert at Madison Square Garden in New York City, but he ended up being the one impressed with someone else's vocals. During the show, he gave an audience member named Erin Bellucci a chance to sing one of her favorite songs: Etta James's "At Last." Before he handed over the microphone, he told the audience, "Don't be terrible judges. Be more Blake [Shelton] than Simon Cowell," he joked, referencing the former American Idol and The Voice judges. But we have a feeling both Shelton and Cowell would have been in awe of Bellucci's impromptu performance.

As soon as she started belting, the crowd broke out in applause while Bublé looked on in amazement. After she finished, Bublé couldn't hold in his excitement, saying, "You're the next American Idol! That was so beautiful. That was incredible - too incredible, if you ask me." Watch Bellucci sing "At Last,

Netflix Created a Rom-Com Version of You, and It's So Sweet, It'll Drive You Crazy

  • Popsugar
Image Source: Lifetime

Warning: mild You spoilers ahead!

Netflix's You is many things: thrilling, chilling, steamy, and terrifying. However, it's not a romantic comedy. But what if you removed all the cyberstalking, real-life stalking, obsession, and, uh, murder? Well, you might get a sweet love story! It just wouldn't be about Joe Goldberg and Guinevere Beck. Joe and Beck - played by Penn Badgley and Elizabeth Lail, respectively - were the key focus of the show's first season. Joe's dark nature doomed the couple from the start, and I certainly didn't root for them to stay together. Yet, another romantic (less-psychotic) relationship blossomed in the background: Joe's Mooney's bookstore coworker, Ethan (Zach Cherry), was searching for love and found it with Beck's classmate Blythe (Hari Nef).

Netflix went ahead and re-imagined You from the lens of Ethan and Blythe in a fake movie trailer. Thank god their storyline isn't insane,

Ahead of the Oscars, Here Are All the Awards
Unless you've been living in a cave with no internet access, you probably already know that A Star Is Born's "Shallow" has pretty much become the breakout song of the season. Not only has it been covered by everyone from Kelly Clarkson to Alicia Keys to Lea Michele and Darren Criss (and inspired a figure skating program!), but it's also nominated for the best original song Oscar and is slated to be performed on the broadcast along with the other nominees. Although nothing is set in stone until the envelope is opened on the Oscars stage, we'd guess the odds of "Shallow" winning are pretty good, given that it's swept through award season and taken home a pretty big haul of awards so far!

At the Capri Hollywood International Film Festival in January, "Shallow" was awarded the prize for best original song; A Star Is Born also took home awards
