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
30 Rock was never a ratings juggernaut, but it was always a critical darling and an awards powerhouse from its debut. Perhaps that’s why NBC kept the struggling series on the air for seven seasons. The fact it was a favorite amongst households with an income above $100,000 probably didn’t hurt either. Eventually though, all things have to come to an end. 30 Rock aired its final episode this past week to its best ratings since March 2012.
Given that without Tina Fey, 30 Rock never would’ve existed, it’s only natural that the cast and crew owe her a bit of gratitude. After all, they did receive a steady stream of income for seven years. Members of the cast including Alec Baldwin, Tracy Morgan and Jane Krakowski give their heartfelt thanks while trying to hold back their tears to their boss. Even Tina Fey’s stand-in says a few words in the clip. Jay McBrayer starts things off with the following:
“The person at the top sets the tone,” said Jay Mcbrayer (Kenneth). “And, so if you have somebody who’s just very talented, very happy to let other talented people do their job, good at delegating, that’s all going to trickle down … I think we’ve all been very lucky that the person at the top knows what she’s doing, knows what she wants, and makes it happen.”
Nine years after its release, Mean Girls is as popular as ever. Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj were even bonding and trying to quiz each other on the popular teen comedy during the American Idol auditions. It’s probably the one thing the two divas have and will ever agree on. How I missed this awesome bit of news during the Screen Actors Guild Awards is appalling? Shame on me. Thankfully, I stumbled on it and can share it with you now.
With 30 Rock signing off the air this Thursday, Tina Fey needs a new project to keep her occupied. The SNL vet told E! News that a musical version of Mean Girls could “maybe” be on the way. She revealed, “I’m trying to develop it actually with my husband, who does all the music for 30 Rock. And I think Paramount’s on board, yeah.” Cue slow clap.
If it does come to fruition, I know one actress who might want to reprise her role. Amanda Seyfried has already appeared in two big budget musicals- Mamma Mia and Les Miserables. Plus, the 27-year-old actress recently described the movie as her “best work” in an interview with IndieWire. Perhaps Karen and her ESPN knew all along that a musical was in the works ;)
Personally, I think a musical adaption is a great idea. Let’s face it, Tina Fey isn’t going to get involved with a project unless she thinks it’s hilarious. Check out a few of my favorite clips from the classic teen flick below.
Just less than 24 hours after the Producers Guild Awards named Argo Best Picture, the film has racked up another huge honor- Best Ensemble Cast. That award is the Screen Actors Guild Awards equivalent to Best Picture. Once the underdog, the Ben Affleck flick is shaping up to be the Oscar frontrunner.
I have to say the Best Picture race is one of the most competitive in years. Early in the awards season it looked like a two-way race between Zero Dark Thirty and Les Miserables as they steamrolled through the critics awards. Then Steven Spielberg’s Lincoln came on strong, nabbing several major accolades including the most Oscar nominations at this year’s Academy Awards. Now it seems its Argo‘s race to lose. Ever since Affleck was snubbed of a Best Directing Oscar nomination, the film has been the beneficiary of a huge wave of support. With less than a month of voting left, the race could flip once again. Thankfully, this year’s Best Picture Oscar isn’t a foregone conclusion yet.
Speaking of sure things, Daniel Day-Lewis and Anne Hathaway continued their way on the road to Oscar glory. The two picked up another Best Actor and Best Supporting Actress award respectively. Meanwhile in Best Actress, the SAGs made the race a bit clearer. Jennifer Lawrence beat Jessica Chastian, giving the Silver Linings Playbook actress an edge at the Academys. Both ladies won at the Golden Globes, but were separated by drama and comedy categories. If any Oscar precursor has the best record with the acting categories, it’s the SAGs. That said, they got it wrong last year when Best Actress went to Viola Davis, but Meryl Streep earned her third Oscar statue. Check out all the film and television winners below.
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.
Coming up later this month are the 70th Annual Golden Globes hosted by the hilarious besties, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. Not too long ago, the duo released their first promo which had them talking in old Hollywood accents – oh those two.
In this new interview-style promo, the two talk about why they wanted to host the Golden Globes in the first place, who they are interested in seeing, and who they are hoping wins Best Picture. At first they say Avatar (not having a clue about any actual current movies), but then Fey reveals that she’d like to be the first person to win Best Picture… just her, on her own. LOL.
Poehler & Fey say that they enjoy the Golden Globes because it’s a “sloppy, loud party” where “beautiful people of film rub shoulders with the horrible, disgusting people of television.” Enjoy the funny 2-minute promo below.
As you probably know, the hilarious dynamic duo, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler will be hosting the 70th Annual Golden Globe Awards. Not only are they hosting, but they’re both nominated in the same category for “Best Performance By An Actress In A Television Series – Comedy Or Musical.” The two ladies are up against Zooey Deschanel in New Girl, Julia Louis-Dreyfus in Veep, and Lena Dunham in Girls. Any predictions as to who you think we’ll take the win?
The nominations were just released today (stay tuned for the lists which Donovan will be posting) and also the first promo starring the two hilarious hosts. Looking glamourous as you can see from the still above, Fey & Poehler decide to channel classic Hollywood accents in the promo and vow to speak in those accents for all their banter…but then they realize…
I can’t wait to see these ladies hosting together – such a perfect choice! The 70th Annual Golden Globes takes place live on Sunday, January 13 on NBC. Watch the promo video below.
The trailer for a new dramedy called Admission starring Tina Fey and Paul Rudd has just come out and it looks so cute! I love Tina Fey in anything.
In the film, Tina Fey plays Portia Nathan, an admissions officer at Princeton University. Like her character on Baby Mama, she is a smart and ambitious woman and lives by the book when evaluating the thousands of college applicants for her job, but is also by the book with in her relationship with a faculty member named Mark (Michael Sheen).
When she goes to visit an experimental New Hampshire high school to check out applicants, she’s caught off guard when she learns that the co-founder, John Halsey (Paul Rudd) is someone she went to college with. She is then completely taken back when she is reminded about her life-altering decision of giving up a baby for adoption while she was still a student. The situation reaches a whole new level when she suspects that one of the students at this school is actually her son.
The film also features Lily Tomlin, Gloria Reuben, and Wallace Shawn and opens in theatres on March 8, 2013. Check out the trailer below!
