While the nominees for the 88th Academy Awards are as white as freshly fallen show, the first wave of presenters not so much so. Definitely not #oscarssowhite action going on here. Wisely, the Academy has chosen a diverse list of personalities.

“Each of these artists bring a wonderfully distinctive element to the Oscars stage,” producers David Hill and Reginald Hudlin said in a statement. “Together they represent the many thrilling ways stories can be shared about the human experience, and we’re honored they will be part of the celebration.”

When I say diverse, I mean diverse. You have black, white, young, old, gay, straight, American and international stars in the mix. Check out the first round of presenters below.

The second Sarah Palin popped up this week to enthusiastically endorse Donald Trump, I just knew this would soon follow. There was no way Tina Fey and Saturday Night Live could resist, especially since Palin delivered some memorable moments.

Watch Fey below resurrect her infamous impersonation of the former governor of Alaska. Once again, she hits the ball out of the park.

This past weekend, Tina Fey resurrected her bang-on Sarah Palin impersonation on Saturday Night Live. After years of being the butt of the joke, the 51-year-old politician is fighting back. Turnabout is fair play after all.

Palin along with Senators Lindsey Graham and John McCain star in a 30 Rock spoof, aptly titled 31 Rock. The former governor does a decent job of channelling Fey’s character Liz Lemon. Watch her play Lynn Melon below in the parody clip for conservative website, Independent Journal Review.

tina-fey-amy-poehler-snl-co-hosts

After serving up laughs three consecutive years in a row at The Golden Globes, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are handing off hosting duties to Ricky Gervais. Thankfully, the dynamic duo aren’t depriving their fans completely of their signature brand of comedy. The ladies are returning to their former stomping grounds this December.

NBC just revealed Fey and Poehler will co-host Saturday Night Live on December 19. Bruce Springsteen will join them that evening as the musical guest. Since leaving the show, Fey has hosted four times with Poehler headlining the show only once since her departure.

Find out below who else is stopping by next month. It’s a one-two punch of handsome hotness.

With Tina Fey and Amy Poehler hosting the Golden Globes the past three years, it hardly feels like seven years since they starred in Baby Mama. But it has. The two Saturday Night Live alums reunite on the silver screen for the upcoming comedy Sisters.

They play estranged sisters who come together after being summoned by their parents. Turns out, their childhood home has been sold. While cleaning out their bedrooms, they come up with the brilliant idea to throw one last rager and invite their former classmates with the exception of Maya Rudolph.

Ike Barinholtz, John Leguizamo, Dianne Wiest, John Cena and James Brolin round out the cast. Sisters rages into theaters on December 18, 2015. The movie is rated R for “crude sexual content.” Once you watch the full trailer, you’ll see why. Poor music box never saw it coming 😉

david-letterman-finale-show

After 33 years on late night television, 22 of which at the helm of The Late Show on CBS, David Letterman hosted his final show. Leading up to his swan song, the 68-year-old host welcomed some of his most notable guests including Julia Roberts, Oprah Winfrey, Adam Sandler, Tom Hanks and George Clooney to name a few. However, for his final hour, Letterman went for a relatively subdued approach, as compared to Jay Leno and Chelsea Handler’s send-offs.

It mostly consisted of clip montages from his over 6,000+ shows. The only celebrities that showed up did so to deliver his final Top 10 List, “Top 10 things I’ve always wanted to say to Dave.” Tina Fey, Alec Baldwin, Jerry Seinfeld, Chris Rock and six others participated.

He was also joined by President Obama and former presidents in a pre-taped segment for the intro. It all ended with the Foo Fighters sending Letterman off to the sunset. Who knew David was such a fan of the Dave Grohl-fronted band.

Check out his final Top 10 list below, along with his final monologue, farewell and more clips.

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.

NBC Picks Up Tina Fey Comedy

In: Donovan, TV Shows

30 Rock is long gone but NBC still wants to stay in business with Tina Fey. Who can blame them? The peacock network ordered a straight-to-series new comedy airing next Fall. Given Fey’s clout and track record, I completely understand their decision, but hopefully approving it without seeing a pilot will fare better than the Michael J. Fox Show. That also was a straight-to-series decision and look how that’s turning out.

“Tina and Robert … have created a new signature comedy for us that is audacious, emotional and clever,” NBC Entertainment chairman Robert Greenblatt says. “While tapping into very relatable themes, there isn’t anything like this anywhere else on television. NBC has been their home for many years and we’re so happy that they’ve found another way to push the comedy envelope for us.”
