Kate Winslet had finally admitted what we’ve all been thinking about for years: Jack could have fit on that huge piece of wood at the end of Titanic. The actress stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Monday to talk about touching Susan Sarandon’s chest, but Jimmy Kimmel made sure to take the opportunity to call her out about a scene. After he pointed out that she basically let Leonardo DiCaprio‘s character freeze to death in the water, Kate admitted, “I agree. I think he could have actually fit on that bit of door.” YES, THEY COULD HAVE! Does anyone else watch the Titanic, ignorantly thinking that someway, somehow the movie will end differently? And every time, we’re left sobbing our lives away thinking of different ways we could have saved Jack Dawson! Watch the video above — where Kate also speaks of the beautiful friendship she shares with Leo in real life.
Last night at 7 PM (PST) I was sitting in front of my TV, all ready to snark-watch FOX’s Grease: Live. I’m a huge fan of the original movie, and while I was never in a production of Grease, I know both the movie and the stage version really well. But I’ve got to admit, within 10 minutes of watching last night’s production, I had a hard time being snarky about anything. FOX wasn’t kidding when they said they wanted to raise the bar on the NBC live musicals, and directors Thomas Kail (of Hamilton fame) and Alex Rudzinski helped do just that. More »

With all of the #OscarsSoWhite drama circulating over the past month, it was refreshing to see the diversity amongst last night’s Screen Actors Guild Awards (SAG) winners. Uzo Aduba won Outstanding Performance By A Female Actor In A Comedy Series for Orange Is The New Black, Viola Davis won for her dramatic role in How To Get Away With Murder, and Idris Elba won not one, but two awards! One for his supporting role in Beasts Of No Nation, and one for Luther. Queen Latifah won for her role in Bessie as well. There’s no reason why amazing performances like those shouldn’t be acknowledged, so I think everyone’s happy that SAG wasn’t only representing white actors. I mean, they showed us how a 2016 awards show should play out, although that’s not to say that there couldn’t be improvements. More »
So this gal from Buffalo, NY, Jessica Casanova, was probably sitting at home on day, dreaming of her ideal prom dress, looking through photos of her favorite red carpet outfits. It was a long shot, but she decided to tweet Gina Rodriguez of Jane The Virgin, mentioning she would love to wear the dress she wore to this year’s Golden Globes. What happened? Gina responded. “Where do you live? I only own my first Globes dress the one from last year…maybe we can make this happen,” she tweeted. UMMMM…WHAT? A. This never happens. B. Gina Rodriguez is the coolest. She could easily have not gone through the trouble, as I’m sure people tweet stuff at her all the time. But she did. More »
Remember back in October of 2015 when we heard that a Gilmore Girls revival was coming to Netflix? Netflix, the producers and the shows stars didn’t confirm the news, but they didn’t exactly deny it either. But guess what! Today the news became official. Netflix and Warner Bros. Television confirmed that a Gilmore Girls revival will be making its way onto the streaming platform, although they have yet to specify a date. But we do know that creator/producer Amy Sherman-Palladino and producer Daniel Palladino are on board and will be writing and directing all of the Netflix episodes. Guys! I’m so excited right now!

Kaley Cuoco had a tough act to follow on last night’s episode of Lip Sync Battle. She had to follow Josh Gad‘s “I Touch Myself,” where he was donning a Donald Trump costume and boxers made of money. He even swung on a giant toupee wearing wrecking ball, straight up Miley Cyrus style. It was a beautiful, beautiful thing, and I wouldn’t expect Josh to pull something that is anything less than ridiculous. I won’t spoil the end of that segment for you because it was just the icing on the cake. Then came Kaley. The Big Bang Theory star dropped down on stage on a vine, clad in Britney Spears‘ green butterfly top, grooving to “I’m A Slave 4 U.” More »
This will probably be the collaboration of the decade! On last night’s episode of The Tonight Show, Jane Got a Gun star Natalie Portman joined Sia, Jimmy Fallon, and The Roots in an epic performance of the 1965 classic “Iko Iko”. In the video, each of the performers are wearing Sia’s (now-trademark) two-tone wig and sporting some very unusual matching attire. Sia must literally travel with 20 wigs everywhere she goes — and we’re so grateful because it gives us performances like this! Much like the classroom instrument rendition like Adele‘s “Hello,” the group performed with the sounds of spoons, blocks, maracas, a deck of cards, and other super random items. The video already has more than 133,000 views. It is well on its way to being a viral sensation! Watch above — we promise you’ll have the catchy tune stuck in your head all day.
Alright guys, remember a few months back when we found out that Jessie J would be singing the iconic Grease theme for FOX’s Grease Live? Well it’s here. Obviously, it’s very different from the Frankie Valli version the world has come to know and love since the movie came out in 1978, but honestly, it’s not that bad. Maybe it’s even good? Give it a listen and we can discuss it further. More »

British actor Joseph Fiennes is set to play Michael Jackson in a celebrity road trip movie about the King of Pop trying to escape New York City with friends Elizabeth Taylor (played by Grease‘s Stockard Channing) and Marlon Brando (played by Scottish actor Brian Cox) after the tragic events 9/11. Regardless of how weird the plot of the untitled TV drama is (since it’s probably fictitious), it’s the casting of MJ that’s got people talking. As the #OscarsSoWhite controversy rages on, this new casting news is a little touchy. Why? Well, because they cast a white actor to play Michael Jackson.
Imagine if Game of Thrones‘ Queen Cersei were a contestant on The Bachelor. None of those other women would stand a chance — quite literally because Cersei would probably have them all killed. In any event, here’s a taste of what it would be like. Lena Headey, who so brilliantly portrays the wonderfully awful Cersei Lannister on the hit HBO show, made an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Monday. With Cersei’s trademark goblet of wine in hand, she recited some of the insults flung by the women on The Bachelor. Put-downs like, “I think her boobs are fake, but it’s okay, like you can tell they’re fake” and “I don’t think there’s one girl who’s competition. I think I’m way prettier than everyone else” are said with such withering disdain as only Cersei can deliver them. Please watch the excellence above. This really just makes me want Game of Thrones NOW. There have only been a handful of shows in my life that when a season ends, I go through a complete withdrawal and literally yearn for its return. GoT does that to me. So now I wait for April.
