Let’s call a spade a spade: 2016 sucks. It was a veritable pile of garbage for everyone, so at the very least it was an equal opportunity year. No one was left out of the bulls–t. See what we did there finding the positive?
But anyways, it’s time to look forward into 2017. It has to be a good year, solely because there is nowhere to go but up. That being said, we do have high hopes for what the next twelve months will bring. It’s going to start off with a bang thanks to the stellar lineup of award … read more

YouTube personality Adam Saleh posted a video on Twitter in which he claims that he was kicked off of a Delta flight because he spoke Arabic.
“Guys we spoke a different language on a plane, and now we are getting kicked out,” Saleh says in the video as he and his friend Slim Albaher are being escorted off of the plane. “This is 2016. 2016. Look, Delta airlines are kicking us out because we spoke a different language.”
One passenger remarks, “That’s insane,” while several other passengers … read more

In the near two years that he’s been the host of CBS’ The Late, Late Show, James Corden has used wildly popular Carpool Karaoke segment to play his own personal game of Pop Star Pokemon. Gotta catch ’em all!
He’s cultivated an impressive roster of shotgun-riding singers since his very first ride with Mariah Carey, with the ranks swelling in the last two weeks to include Madonna and Bruno Mars. But there are still plenty of musical megastars out there, thumbs outstretched, just looking to hitch the … read more

Squad [noun]: Any small group or party of persons engaged in a common enterprise. Slang; a group of friends. To Webster’s Dictionary, a squad means one thing and one thing only. To Taylor Swift , the woman responsible for bringing the concept into our consciousness and the term into our daily vernacular, it can mean something different depending on the day. Most people have a few immediate reactions to hearing the phrase “Taylor Swift’s squad.” They think of Selena Gomez or Gigi Hadid or of parties … read more

My first idea for the headline for this story was “Dumb merman impregnates headless Playmate.” But I thought the reaction to that would be a lot of “????” So here’s the story: dummy Ryan Lochte impregnated his fiancée Kayla Rae Reid. I did the math on this one! They announced their engagement on October 9th, about nine weeks ago. Traditionally, couples announce the pregnancy when they’ve cleared three months, or twelve to thirteen weeks. Is it possible that she found out she was pregnant … read more

We didn’t see this year coming, but we heard it from all sides. In Signal & Noise 2016, you’ll find the way we made sense out of all of that sound.
Looking back at this year in Lady Problems, one thing is abundantly clear: I have solved sexism. No, no, please, don’t thank me. Thank the ghost ship that has been ferrying Woody Allen to his slow, watery demise for the past seven months. Thank Reservoir Bitches, the all-female remake of Reservoir Dogs. Thank the men who have spent the duration … read more

Like you, James Marsden was just as surprised about Westworld’s Season 1 finale.
According to the actor, who plays Teddy Flood the gunslinger with a heart of gold, he didn’t see the shocking twist ending pertaining to the “maze” that everyone was trying to solve throughout the season.
“I got the final script and was like ‘Whoa,’ but for a while we had to kind of keep our mouths shut,” he told Entertainment Tonight at the 2016 Critics’ Choice Awards, where co-star Evan Rachel Wood … read more

La La Land was honored with the most awards on Sunday night (Dec. 11, 2016) at the 22nd Annual Critics’ Choice Awards.

Casey Affleck took home the prize for Best Actor for his role in Manchester by the Sea, while Natalie Portman was named Best Actress for her work in Jackie. Portman, who is pregnant, … read more

As Jimmy Fallon gears up to host this year’s Golden Globe Awards, he doesn’t need to schedule too much rehearsal—after all, he banters with celebrities on a nightly basis. As the host of The Tonight Show, the comedian and SNL alum has enough star-studded sketches in his repertoire to fill dozens of Golden Globe ceremonies. Thankfully, all that practice will not go to waste when he officially hosts it just a few days after New Year’s on Jan. 8. From sleep-away camp debauchery with Best Original … read more

You saw Jackie star Natalie Portman win best actress in a movie and La La Land take home the award for best picture.
We’re talking about the Critics’ Choice Awards.
The broadcast on A&E also included Moonlight nabbing best ensemble and Casey Affleck continuing his road to the Oscars with the best actor win.
And then there are the TV wins—Sarah Paulson, Courtney B. Vance and Game of Thrones won as did Kate McKinnon and Atlanta’s Donald Glover.
Of course, we can’t forget Atlanta star Keith Stanfield … read more

Here are some fashion photos from last night’s Critics Choice Awards. CB and I were so confused yesterday because the Critics Choice usually happen in January, in the heat of awards season, but for some reason the association decided to host the awards in the dead of December this year. As such, I feel like the fashion was sort of struggling. You’ll see evidence of that throughout our fashion coverage! And let’s start with an obvious one – this is Jessica Biel in Elie Saab. Biel was mostly … read more

An exciting new award was given out at the 2016 Critics’ Choice Awards and it was solely dedicated to women in media.
Awarded to Viola Davis, the #SeeHer award rewards women working to eliminate gender bias in media through their work in film and television. Davis received the #SeeHer award because she “embodies the values set forth by the #SeeHer mission, including pushing boundaries on changing stereotypes and her recognition of the importance of accurately portraying women across the entertainment … read more

Welp, it happened. It was relatively smooth sailing at the 2016 Critics’ Choice Awards until Lakeith Stanfield crashed the stage.
The Atlanta actor pulled a move right out of the “Kanye West Awards-Approved Behavior” handbook when he crashed the stage during the announcement for Best Comedy Series. Atlanta was among the handful of nominees in the category which included eventual winner Silicon Valley.
In a truly fascinating turn of events, something seemed a little off when Silicon Valley was announced … read more

Just because T.J. Miller didn’t want to discuss his Friday arrest at the Critics’ Choice Awards doesn’t mean the rest of us aren’t going to discuss it.
According to Deadline, Miller, who is best known for his role in HBO’s Silicon Valley, was in an altercation with a hired driver that led to Miller’s arrest after the driver accused him of battery. He was released and is scheduled to appear in court to address the situation on Jan. 9.
TMZ reported that the altercation started because of a debate … read more
