Like you, James Marsden was just as surprised about Westworld’s Season 1 finale.

“AAAAGGGGHHHH!”
That was Meryl Streep’s reaction after learning she had earned her 30th Golden Globe Award nomination.

Meanwhile, as the names streamed in, there was cause for celebration on a broader front. After the #OscarsSoWhite controversy of 2016, it seems Hollywood is steadily understanding how to … read more

I’m splitting up the Golden Globe nominations for film and television. This is the film-nomination post. This year’s races actually solidified a lot earlier than people were expecting, and there are probably few “surprises” in this list, although there are some snubs. Incidentally, Meryl Streep is receiving the Cecil B. DeMille Award for lifetime achievement. I bet she wins for Florence Foster Jenkins too. And Jimmy Fallon is hosting this year, so expect a lot of stupid games. Here are the … 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
