We here on the E! News TV team have been so good this year. We ate our vegetables, we brushed our teeth, and we didn’t start this article off with yet another joke about dumpster fires and 2016.

So, just in case you just happen to be one of the powers that be in the TV world, we’ve compiled a list of all the things we’d like to have for 2017. It’s nothing crazy—just a few minor requests and a stern warning or … read more

Lena Dunham has apologized for a comment she made on her podcast Women of the Hour, in which she said that she wished she’d had an abortion.
Was the joke distasteful? Yes.
But Dunham’s heartfelt explanation more than makes up for it.
“My latest podcast episode was meant to tell a multifaceted story about reproductive choice in America, to explain the many reasons women do or don’t choose to have children and what bodily autonomy really means. I’m so proud of the medley of voices in the episode. … read more

Michelle Williams covers the January issue of Elle Magazine, just proving to me that she’s really going to do a big Oscar campaign this season. Michelle has a supporting role in Manchester by the Sea, and many believe she’s one of the leading contenders for a Best Supporting Actress Oscar nomination, alongside Naomie Harris (for Moonlight) and Viola Davis (for Fences). I keep hoping that Viola’s Oscar won’t be snatched away by another actress, and I’m really hoping that Michelle isn’t … read more

Jovan Adepo couldn’t hide his nervousness when he began work on Fences.

Washington also directed the movie. “One the first day of actually filming, Denzel could definitely tell I was nervous,” says Adepo, who fans of The Leftovers know for his work as Michael Murphy on the HBO … read more

Viola Davis is gearing up for one heck of an award season. The actress stars opposite Denzel Washington in Fences, a performance that’s quickly gaining critical acclaim within Hollywood’s inner circles. Davis took home the Best Supporting Actress honor at the 22nd Annual Critics’ Choice Awards earlier this month, and she stands to win the same award at the 2017 Golden Globes come early January. So how will the talented star kick back during the holiday season? Viola spoke to E! News’ Zuri Hall about … read more

Nicole Kidman was on Ellen yesterday, which was taped after her Golden Globe nomination, for supporting actress for Lion, and before her SAG nom. It’s doubtful she’ll win, that category is between Viola Davis and Michelle Williams, but she seems excited to be nominated. She might score an Oscar nom too, we’ll see. Nicole’s visit on Ellen was brief and she’s getting the most attention for telling Ellen that she doesn’t exchange Christmas presents with her husband of ten years, Keith Urban. … read more

Anyway, the SAG nominations were just released and most of these nominations were … read more
