Cameron Diaz, who stars as Miss Hannigan in the upcoming remake of Annie, was the guest host on Saturday Night Live last night and in an effort to promote the release of the new version of Annie with humor (um, I *think* they were going for humor) she appeared in a “Black Annie” skit as Miss Hannigan. I’m not sure if they were going for a meta vibe to this skit or what but … well … watch it in full above and see what you think. Do we think this is funny or … nah?
He's moving on to big things
I’ve never been a hardcore, dedicated Mindy Project fan, but I do watch the show from time to time, and we have an intern who is obsessed with the series (hai Iris). So I know this is pretty big news—Adam Pally AKA Dr. Peter Prentice AKA the Jewish Matthew McConaughey is exiting the series. Apparently, he’s had a deal with ABC in the works for some time now, and he’s leaving the show to dedicate more time to this new venture. Click inside for more!
'I've concluded that we're looking for a weirdo.'
For the first few seasons of Portlandia, I really tried to avoid it. I vowed that I would not get into whatever weirdness Carrie Brownstein and Fred Armisen were peddling. I think I just felt like I sooo look like someone who watches the show, so I tried not to watch? But then… they got me. I’d heard that Paste Magazine got a shout-out on an episode, and that’s how they reeled me in. Then I discovered that it’s, basically, the greatest show ever and I’ve been watching on Netflix ever since. I mean, the Hip Hop lesson? I love this show.

MUST SEE TV
Last weekend, Lifetime aired their much-ballyhooed made-for-TV biopic movie about Aaliyah which Timbaland hated, Twitter hated, everyone hated. This weekend, VH1 comes to our rescue because they are re-airing Behind the Music: Aaliyah tomorrow night as a brilliant (yet SHADY) way of making up for the horrid Lifetime movie. Behind the Music is a documentary series that tells the stories of some of our favorite artists using interview footage of the artists themselves, as well as people who worked with the artists, family and friends. If you want to see the real deal when it comes to Aaliyah‘s life story, you’re gonna wanna tune in and watch Behind the Music: Aaliyah tomorrow night. More »
'Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt'
A new Tina Fey show is headed our way, but why am I just now hearing about the details about this show??? Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt sounds amazing. And it also sounds like some of the new changes that are already coming to the series are all for the best. Come March 2015, Netflix subscribers will get the opportunity to binge on Tina Fey‘s new series, and binge we shall. Click inside for more!
"They could definitely ramp it up"
Like all cool people, I started watching Game of Thrones wayyyy after the rest of the world. As in, a few months ago. And probably the first thing I noticed was alllll the boobs. No need for a Free the Nipple campaign on that show. SERIOUSLY. And once I saw everyone’s boobs—and everything else—I realized that I hadn’t seen much in the way of male anything. Y’all know how I feel about that. Which is why these comments from Hunger Games: Mockingjay star Natalie Dormer (who plays Margaery Tyrell on Thrones) are getting the ill co-sign from me.
"Scott Foley is ... a f*cking creep with raper face"
Yesterday we learned that our dear Britney Spears was asked to film something fun for Jimmy Kimmel Live and later in the day, we got to preview video of Britney reading a mean tweet about her for the show. Last night, the full Celebrities Read Mean Tweets segment aired and it featured some of our fave actors and actresses reading mean tweets that people have tweeted about them. I laughed more than once so you might, too. LOL.

Season 4, Episode 9
Um. Okay. But what just happened? There I was, watching Scandal. There were only a few seconds left, and I was so caught up in that mambo dance, I forgot to be scared for my life. UGH. LIVVYYYYyyyyyy! Okay, let me rewind. Last night’s Scandal Season Four winter finale did like 8 things—it was all over the place in all of the right ways. My head hurts, my heart hurts, and—for whatever reason—I kind of want to see my face on one of those supercool kill cards. Click inside for more!

"Quit forcing your suckage on me ..."
Earlier today we learned that Britney Spears will appear on Jimmy Kimmel Live tonight in a segment where celebrities read mean tweets written about them on air. Right now, we get to preview Britney‘s appearance on the show tonight because Jimmy Kimmel just shared a preview video of the segment that will air tonight. Mean tweets suck … but they suck way less when celebs are able to laugh at them.
