We've seen these movies 100 times and even though they aren't winning Academy Awards, they are getting the most screen time in our lives. Seriously though, who is sitting around watching Lincoln or 12 Years a Slave on repeat? We are celebrating the rom-com life today because we love us some Julia Roberts, Meg Ryan and all our other go to rom-com ladies … Like Katherine Heigl.
Rumor has it Disney wants Chris Pratt in their Indiana Jones revival. We'd have to agree 100 percent with Disney on this one—he'd make one incredible (and sexy) archaeologist. For some of us who like to think we liked something way before the masses, our love for Chris Pratt began long before the summer of 2014 or the "Summer of Pratt" as it shall otherwise be known.
Emma Watson being cast as Belle in Beauty And The Beast got us thinking: Disney princesses get a pretty bad rap. Sure, they often have impossible bodily proportions, weird patriarchal relationships and until recently married at 16 and essentially viewed every living matriarchal figure in any given kingdom as wicked, evil and selfish. (Thankfully, modern flicks like Brave and Frozen have made huge feminist strides in Disney princess films.) But still, you love them, right?
I miss watching Sex And The City characters Carrie, Samantha, Miranda and Charlotte navigate the New York dating pool, especially now that I am living here. There are so many advances with dating that the show never covered before it ended, like texting and online dating. It would be great to see Carrie Bradshaw on a Tinder date.
The 50 Shades Of Grey movie hype is growing as the movie's release date (February 13) gets closer, which means a barrage of media attention is once more on the mommy porn flick. And that means I get to hear endless apologies and explanations for how what may be the most sexist, poorly written piece of literature since Tucker Max thought he was relevant.
Everyone is allowed to date whoever they want to date and love who they want to love (though "marrying who they want to marry" is still iffy in some states, but I digress). Everyone else is also allowed to have an opinion on it as well. That's how it works, you can do what you want, and other people can't stop you, but they don't have to like it. Nobody has to be happy with other people's life choices, but you also can't really stop people from being unhappy either.
It's hump day, and while you're probably in a good mood that the week is almost over, I am here to tell you that you still have three more days of work. Let that soak in for a minute, because my goal is to annoy you here and then let Anna Kendrick remind you why she's amazing and help you get through the rest of your week.
There's no new episode of The Mindy Project this week, because FOX likes to torture us and make us wait and on top of that we never know when the last time we will see Peter is. It's a double-edged sword really, because we want more episodes but we also want more Adam Pally. At least we can pretend he's not leaving us.
Hot off his Golden Globe win (and super touching speech about his foxy son!), Michael Keaton is a front-runner to win the Best Actor Oscar at this year's Academy Awards for Birdman. In this movie, Keaton plays Riggan, a faded Hollywood actor famous for his portrayal of a superhero. With a desire to be talked about and adored once again, Riggan hopes to reinvent himself as he writes, directs and stars in a Broadway adaptation of a story written by Raymond Carver.
As one of the most nominated movies at this year's Academy Awards (6 noms!), the Best Picture Oscar is basically Boyhood's category to lose—especially coming off its big win at the Golden Globes. Not only has it found a way to reinvent the movie-making business by taking 12 years (and technically just 45 days!) to film one (nearly three hour) flick, Boyhood has also received almost entirely positive reviews from film critics—it's at 98 percent on Rotten Tomatoes!
It's just two weeks until The Blacklist comes back on Feb. 1. While many people are anxiously awaiting the Super Bowl, you are crazy obsessed with the return of James Spader and Elizabeth Keen. Who could blame you though? There are criminals, blacklists, secret task forces and basically all the other ingredients you need to make the world's most perfect show. Before the return, lets see an update of where we left off. Warning: There are spoilers ahead. Don't get mad at me when you continue.
Just because you've never met someone doesn't mean that you don't actually love them. That's a perfectly normal thing to say as long as you're talking about a celebrity. (If you're not talking about a celebrity, and you say something like that, then you're a crazy person.)
Reese Witherspoon was nominated for Best Actress in the 2015 Oscars for her portrayal of Cheryl Strayed in her newest movie, Wild. Wild is a true story, based off the book of the same name, about a 26-year-old girl who hikes 1,200 miles (about three months) on the Pacific Crest Trail alone
2015 Best Picture nominee The Theory of Everything is based off of the book Stephen Hawking's first wife wrote, Travelling to Infinity: My Life With Stephen. While many people just think of Stephen Hawking as a brilliant cosmologist, the movie shows the adorable love story between Jane Wilde and Stephen. The couple met very shortly before he was diagnosed with ALS. Although the movie version may be somewhat different to real life, in the movie they meet at a party and almost immediately fall in love.
If you don't know them already, get ready to meet your future girl crushes. Abbi and Ilana are the greatest female comedy duo since Amy and Tina. We mean it! The two friends are back on Comedy Central tonight (!) with the premiere of the second season of their hit show Broad City. Originally launched as a web series in 2009, Amy Poehler used her magic to bring this special show to TVs everywhere in 2014. All praise, Amy!
