The 85th annual Academy Awards have come to past and Ellen Degeneres, on her 2nd go as host did a good job in moving the long ceremony (clocking in at a final run time of 3 1/2 hours) along. The Academy spread the love all around everyone getting a little piece of the pie. Gravity won 7 awards including Best Director for Alfonso Cuaron. 12 Years A Slave received 3 awards including the biggest prize of the night, Best Picture. There were so many other great moments at the awards from Lupita Nyong’o winning and giving that amazing acceptance speech to the selfie that broke Twitter and John Travolta having a stroke and completely butchering Idina Menzel’s name. You can find all of those moments on Indiewire and TVline. See the full list of winners below. Continue reading Oscars 2014

71st Annual Golden Globe Awards


The 71st Annual Golden Globe Awards aired last night on NBC with hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. I enjoyed last night’s show. Tina and Amy are just sooo good together and should host everything.

Some of the best moments came from unexpected places (Emma Thompson drunk and throwing her shoes on stage) or took place on Twitter (Mia and Ronan Farrow’s tweets on Woody Allen during his tribute). There were also some surprises in the awards winners like Brooklyn Nine-Nine winning best comedy (YAY!!!) to Jennifer Lawrence winning best supporting actress in a motion picture (Noooooo, I love Jennifer Lawerence but Lupita Nyong’o was robbed!!). The only other surprise for me was Amy Adams win in the best actress motion picture comedy musical category.

Mid-Season New & Returning Shows (2014)

The new year is upon us and with that comes the end of the winter hiatus of all your favorite shows as well as the premieres of some new ones.  To keep track of all the premiere dates, I have put together a calendar of dates for the month of January and February.

January Mid-season Return & Premiere Dates

February Mid-season Return & Premiere Dates

Scoop: Scandal Season 3 Episode Order Trimmed in Wake of Kerry Washington’s Pregnancy News


This is a great thing. This will give the writers time to tighten up the story and not have to do so much filler. This will also give Kerry plenty of time off from when she has her baby till the start of season 4 production. I think 18 episodes per season should be a permanent fix. Then they can start the season a little later like in October end it in December with the first 9 episodes having  aired then come back in February to finish up the final 9 with the season ending in late April.

Why Aren’t You Watching Trophy Wife?


The best comedy of the fall is………. Trophy Wife. What? Trophy Wife, really? Yes, this is the best new comedy that no one is watching. I would put it up there as one of the top comedies on television right now.

Trophy Wife is a show about a newlywed couple, played by Malin Akerman (Rock of Ages, Wanderlust, Children’s Hospital) and Bradley Whitford (West Wing, Cabin In The Woods). The series delves into their daily lives dealing with his two ex-wives, Marcia Gay Harden (The Newsroom, Mystic River) and Michaela Watson (Saturday Night Live, Afternoon Delight, Wanderlust) and the three children from his previous marriages.
