In: Donovan, Movies

Are you a fan of romantic comedies? If so, They Came Together will be up your alley. The film satirizes popular rom-com cliches.

Paul Rudd and Amy Poehler play Joel and Molly, a couple who gets off to a rocky start. Turns out, his big corporation is the one that threatens to shut down her quirky knick-knack store. Sounds an awful lot like Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan’s You’ve Got Mail, right?

Ed Helms, Michael Ian Black, Jason Mantzoukas, Cobie Smulders and Christopher Meloni round out the cast. They Came Together hits theaters and VOD on June 24. Check out the trailer below.

The dynamic duo are back and not just hosting another Golden Globes telecast.

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are teaming up on the big screen. They last appeared in theaters in 2008′s Baby Mama and Mean Girls prior to that back in 2004. Not to mention all those years on Saturday Night Live. This time they’ll be playing sisters.

The Nest is based on a script written by SNL writer Paula Pell. The Universal comedy is about two 30-something sisters who come home to find their parents’ house has been put up for sale and then spend a last wild weekend together. Both Fey and Poehler will executive produce the film. Pitch Perfect director Jason Moore will helm the picture.

Are you looking forward to Tina and Amy’s next project? Sound off below.

Golden Globes Hit 10-Year Ratings High

Bringing back Tina Fey and Amy Poehler proved a wise decision for NBC. The lethal comedic combo delivered a 10-year high in viewers, with 20.9 million, up from 19.7 million last year. With regards to the coveted 18-49 demo, it scored a 6.5 rating, up a tenth of a point from 2013 and its best mark since 2007.

Admittedly, I was a little worried Fey and Poehler wouldn’t be able to capture lightning in a bottle again, but they eased my concerns immediately with their hilarious opening monologue. That George Clooney Gravity dig was my favorite of the night. Speaking of digs, after Poehler won, Tina commented that there was a special place in hell for her co-host. Clearly that was directed at Taylor Swift. The country-pop singer took offense to a joke at last year’s Globes and took aim at Tina and Amy in a Vanity Fair interview.

Other memorable moments (good or bad) include Jacqueline Bisset’s slow-moving walk to the stage and following babbling speech, Poehler as Mr. Golden Globe, Emma Thompson barefoot and drinking on stage, all the Julia Louis-Dreyfus audience moments, and speeches by Jennifer Lawrence, Amy Adams and Matthew McConaughey. Rewatch the hilarious opening monologue and all the winners below.

Amy Poehler, Mindy Kaling, Zooey Deschanel, and Allison Williams all appear in separate covers for Elle’s Women in TV issue. While Poehler, Deschanel and Williams’ respective photos are in color and reveal their entire body, Kaling’s is noticeably a different color and only features the comedienne’s upper body.

Some critics are slamming Elle for being racist and “fat-ist.” This isn’t the first time Elle has been slammed for not embracing full-figured women. The publication wrapped Melissa McCarthy in an over-sized coat last year. Kaling made light of the controversy and used the opportunity to promote a new episode of The Mindy Project.

“Wishing for more skin on my @ELLEmagazine cover? Chris Messina & I are naked on a brand new #themindyproject tonight, ya pervs! 930/830 FOX.” Later on, Mindy tweeted “I love my @ELLEmagazine cover. It made me feel glamorous & cool. And if anyone wants to see more of my body, go on thirteen dates with me.”

Elle also broke their silence and wrote, “Mindy looks sexy, beautiful and chic. We think it is a striking and sophisticated cover and are thrilled to celebrate her in our Women in TV Issue.” Editor in chief Robbie Myers wrote in a press release, “The covers we shot with Zooey Deschanel, Mindy Kaling, Amy Poehler and Allison Williams are all distinctive.”

Sometimes I feel people have a tendency to overreact to situations like this, but you can’t deny something is a little fishy here. Kaling’s cover is so vastly different, I can totally imagine what editors said while picking the photo. I’ve seen Devil Wears Prada numerous times ;) Check out the other covers below which were all snapped by photographer Carter Smith.

2014-golden-globes-promo

During last night’s The Sound of Music Live!, NBC debuted the first promo for the 2014 Golden Globes. Unlike Carrie Underwood’s wooden acting, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are two of my favorite things. The comedic BFFs return for their second time hosting the funnest awards show of the year. Earlier this year, the duo signed on for two more hosting stints after their well-reviewed debut as Globes hosts.

In the clip, Amy is on piano duties while Tina attempts to give a preview of their opening number. Unfortunately, they’re off-key and can’t harmonize. While musically they never hit the right note, I have no doubt they will hit all the perfect comedic notes come Golden Globes night. The 71st annual Golden Globe Awards will air on NBC on January 12, 2014. This year’s Miss Golden Globe is Sosie Bacon- daughter of Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick. Watch the promo below.

Best decision by NBC in recent memory. The peacock network announced Tina Fey and Amy Poehler will return to host the 71st and 72nd annual Golden Globes. Truly amazing.

“We’re elated they wanted to host together again and that they committed for the next two years.” – A spokesperson for NBC said in a statement

After last year’s sensational performance, I couldn’t be anymore excited. Those ladies killed it. One person who’s probably not feeling this development is Taylor Swift. She didn’t appreciate being the butt of one of their jokes during last year’s telecast. Poehler’s rep jokingly tweeted, “Sorry @taylorswift13 but Amy & Tina will be back for the next two @goldenglobes.” I’m betting the “22″ singer stays clear from this year’s event ;)

Just in case you forgot how hilarious the 30 Rock and Parks & Recreation actress were on the 70th annual show, I’ve embedded their best moments below. The 2014 Golden Globes will be held in Los Angeles on Sunday, January 12.

If you read my post about the gay couple being asked to leave a shopping mall due to PDA, you know I referred to that incident as one of the most ridiculous things I’ve read recently. Correction. This insane comment by Taylor is now officially the most absurd thing I’ve read.

At this year’s Golden Globes, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler teased Taylor Swift to stay away from Michael J. Fox’s son. Apparently, T. Swizzle can’t take a joke. The 23-year-old singer revealed to Vanity Fair that the slam at her was an act against feminism. LOL.

“You know, Katie Couric is one of my favorite people, because she said to me she had heard a quote that she loved, that said, ‘There’s a special place in hell for women who don’t help other women,’” – Taylor Swift

Totally cuckoo right? I’m sure this situation isn’t one where Couric would think the quote is applicable. Out of all the jokes delivered by Fey and Poehler that night, the one directed at Swift was the least offensive.

So, let me get this straight. It’s okay for her to write songs thinly-disguised as tell-alls about her various liaisons, but it’s not right for others to call her out on it. Someone needs to take themselves less seriously. Swift also goes on to say that the fact that she’s so open in her lyrics should be celebrated, not ridiculed.

“For a female to write about her feelings, and then be portrayed as some clingy, insane, desperate girlfriend in need of making you marry her and have kids with her,” she says, “I think that’s taking something that potentially should be celebrated — a woman writing about her feelings in a confessional way — that’s taking it and turning it and twisting it into something that is frankly a little sexist.” – Taylor Swift

Last night, the 70th Annual Golden Globe Awards took place, hosted by the hilarious Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. The duo made such a great team, I only wish there had been more of them! There were several very funny moments throughout the night, as well as some touching moments such Jody Foster’s acceptance speech for the Cecil B. DeMille Award. Another of my favorite parts of the night was when Kristen Wiig and Will Ferrell were presenters together. I was laughing my head off. I’m not sure what was with Tommy Lee Jones’ stank face during that portion of the evening, but whatever. I also loved when Adele won for “Skyfall” and they cut to Taylor Swift’s “less than impressed” face.

I watched the Awards show at Donovan & Brian‘s house along with some Homorazzi cast members and some of our other friends. As you may already know, we had made some predictions as to who we thought would win. I’ve included the results of those predictions within the list of winners below. I’m just going to put it out there right away, I suck at these types of predictions and totally lost. LOL.
