The 2012 Emmy Nominations Are In!

Ok, remember when I did the Summer TV Guide and I promised I’d watch more TV? Well, I didn’t. Not really. Which is fine, except that I cannot offer smart and cheeky comments on most of the 2012 Emmy noms which were announced this morning! I have tried to catch some new shows (falling in love with The Newsroom and Political Animals… and, sadly, shamefully, and hopelessly addicted to Love & Hip Hop Atlana), so I’ll definitely need ya’ll to let me know if you agree with these nominations or not. Checkie out inside!

Actor Fred Willard Caught With His Pants Down In An Adult Theater

Comedic character actor Fred Willard, 72, was arrested here in LA last night for lewd conduct. As I understand it, Willard was found with his pants down and reportedly his penis out while watching an adult film in an adult theater. Honestly, this story is more sad than anything else … but it is a pretty big headline today. Click below to read the sordid details from Reuters (no less) about this despairing story. More »

A Photographer Shares Amazing, But Controversial Photos Of Children’s Rooms

The Huffington Post has a fantastic online series of photography projects with a cultural bend. This week they’re introducing James Mollison‘s book, Where Children Sleep, which was published a while back (as PITNBrs Becca and Missy pointed out). Mollison has taken amazing, powerful photos of children and their rooms from around the world. I enjoyed the pictures immensely, but a lot of readers are accusing Mollison of bias and really, lack of creativity. The difference between the rooms of the kids in America and the kids in say, Palestine is vast (for obvious reasons). But did the artists portray American kids as the spoiled, rich brats that many of them aren’t? Checkie out inside.

Johnny Depp And Wes Anderson Are Teaming Up For A New Movie

Sometimes, the stars just align perfectly. Johnny Depp will finally take a lead role in a Wes Anderson flick. Thank you, gods of cinema. Thank you. The Grand Budapest Hotel is the very Wes Anderson-sounding Wes Anderson (remember The Darjeeling Limited?) film and it comes right on the tails of his success with Moonrise Kingdom, which I’m still obsessing over (see here). Luckily, we won’t have to wait long for another presumably amazing picture and the fact that Johnny Boy is on board means we have a lot to mentally prepare for in the coming months. Good times, good times, inside!

Janet Jackson Is ‘Furious’ That Her Niece, Paris Jackson, Is Entering The Biz

As many of us remember, the late Michael Jackson went to great (sometimes unbelievable) lengths to keep his children, Paris and Prince Jackson, out of the limelight. Paris, now fourteen, has landed a lead role in the forthcoming fantasy movie Lundon’s Bridge and the Three Keys. While this is probably exciting news for a young girl with dreams of acting, her Aunt Janet Jackson has a very different take, and feels that her deceased brother would not be pleased to see his daughter entering showbiz at such a young age. Details inside.

‘Gangster Squad’ Releases A Stylized New Movie Poster

Last week we got to check out a new movie trailer for the forthcoming gangster film Gangster Squad and today we get to check out a just-released new movie poster. Because the film features a group of pretty high profile movie stars (including Sean Penn, Ryan Gosling, Emma Stone and more), each one of them has to be featured on the poster. Altho I’m not a big fan of period piece films, I have to admit that I am interesting in this film primarily for the Gosling factor. Despite my dislike for period pieces, I do appreciate the stylized look of the glamorous gangster era … which is featured in the poster you can see below. More »

Lindsay Lohan Poses With Her Lawyer Shawn Holley For ‘The Hollywood Reporter’

There is no question that Lindsay Lohan‘s longtime attorney Shawn Holley is a very adept and very skilled lawyer. For many years now, Holley has (more or less) managed to keep Lindsay Lohan out of jail … well, as best she can. Yes, Lindsay has clocked some time behind bars but without a lawyer like Holley in her corner, she might likely still be cooling her heels in jail. It is because of Shawn Holley‘s successes with Lohan that she has been named by The Hollywood Reporter magazine as one of Hollywood’s Power Lawyers. Click below to see a couple of photos of Lohan and Holley photographed together for The Hollywood Reporter and learn who Holley believes would be her next dream client. More »
