Golden Globe Awards: And the winners are...

12 Years a Slave, nominated for seven Golden Globe Awards, narrowly avoided getting shut out when it took home the night’s final and biggest prize for Best Drama. Steve McQueen’s period slave drama looked to be out of favor with the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, with Gravity‘s Alfonso Cuaron winning for Best Director, Her‘s Spike Jonze winning for Best Screenplay, and the Dallas Buyers Club duo of Matthew McConaughey and Jared Leto winning the acting awards. But when Johnny Depp announced the big prize, 12 Years a Slave came out on top.

In the Comedy category, American Hustle won Best Picture, while Amy Adams and Jennifer Lawrence won acting trophies. Leonardo DiCaprio took home Best Actor in a Comedy for The Wolf of Wall Street, his second career Globe after winning for The Aviator in 2005.

In the television categories, Breaking Bad and Bryan Cranston were honored for the AMC show’s final season. The HFPA expressed a great fondness for Saturday Night Live, awarding Globes’ co-host Amy Poehler the award for Best Actress in a Comedy, Andy Samberg the prize for Best Actor, and his new show Brooklyn Nine-Nine the honor of Best Comedy.

Jennifer Lawrence and Robert Downey to present at Golden Globes

Jennifer Lawrence, Robert Downey Jr., and Jimmy Fallon will present trophies at the Golden Globe Awards on Jan. 12. The trio were among the first wave of presenters announced by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association for the 71st annual Globes. In addition, they will be joined by Kevin Bacon, Julie Bowen, Laura Dern, Colin Farrell, Mila Kunis, Uma Thurman, and Reese Witherspoon.

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler will host the ceremony, which airs at 8 p.m. ET Sunday on NBC.

Producers Guild nominations: Who was left out?

The Producers Guild of America has accurately forecast the last six Best Picture Oscar winners, so it was good news for 10 films that were nominated today for the PGA’s Darryl F. Zanuck Award. While Gravity, 12 Years a Slave, and American Hustle were among the films that made the cut, Inside Llewyn Davis, The Butler, and Fruitvale Station did not. Last year, eight of the 10 movies that received nods from the PGA went on to earn Oscar nominations for Best Picture.

Fruitvale will go home with a special award when the hardware is handed out on Jan. 19. The movie from first-time filmmaker Ryan Coogler is the recipient of this year’s Stanley Kramer Award. The Producers Guild will also honor Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson (David O. Selznick Achievement Award in Theatrical Motion Pictures), Robert Iger (Milestone Award), Peter Jackson and Joe Letteri (Vanguard Award), Chuck Lorre (Norman Lear Achievement Award in Television), and Chris Meledandri (Visionary Award).

Josh Gad sets sail for 'Gilligan's Island'

Josh Gad will co-write and star in a big-screen adaptation of Gilligan’s Island for Warner Bros. Gad’s publicist confirmed a Deadline report that the Tony-nominated star of The Book of Mormon and the voice of Frozen‘s talking snowman will pen the script with 1600 Penn writers Benji Samit and Dan Hernandez. No one is saying which character Gad is keen to play, though. Lloyd and Ross Schwartz, the children of Sherwood Schwartz — who produced the original TV series and died in 2011 — will executive produce alongside Tracey Silvers and Cathy Silvers.

Gilligan’s Island ran for three seasons on CBS from 1964-67. It was the comic story of seven shipwrecked passengers of the S.S. Minnow: Gilligan, the Skipper, the Professor, an actress Ginger, Mary Ann, and millionaires Mr. and Mrs. Howell. Gilligan (Bob Denver) was a mishap-prone doofus who always inadvertently spoiled their plans of escape or rescue.

Charlie Hunnam speaks out, post-'Fifty Shades': 'I am doing good'

Charlie Hunnam has appeared publicly for the first time since news broke that he was dropping out of Sam Taylor-Johnson’s high-profile film adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey.

Last night, the Sons of Anarchy star joined his castmates at an event benefiting the nonprofit One Heart Source in Burbank, Calif. Hunnam also spoke to E! News at the event, though those looking for a detailed explanation of his decision to leave Fifty Shades will be disappointed.

“I am doing good,” Hunnam, said, adding that he’s been busy concentrating on both work and “family stuff.” (According to E!, Hunnam’s father died this spring.)

“When I wrap the show [SOA season 6], I am going to go to England and see my people,” Hunnam, a native of Newcastle upon Tyne, added. “And then I have a film that I am doing with Guillermo [del Toro]. So I am going to go and do that and [then] concentrate on the final seasons of Sons.”

Hunnam didn’t address any of the rumors swirling around his exit — specifically, that he had serious reservations about the film’s script, and that he got spooked by the idea of bearing the fame that would come along with carrying such a popular franchise.

NBC-Universal employees were told last Wednesday that Hunnam’s part will be recast in the next few weeks; True Blood‘s Alexander Skarsgard is reportedly on the shortlist to play sexually adventurous millionaire Christian Grey, as are Tony-nominated actor Billy Magnussen and Jamie Dornan, star of the U.K. series The Fall, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler sign on to host Golden Globes through 2015

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are coming back to the Golden Globes. And back again.

The former Saturday Night Live duo, who hosted last year’s Globes to much acclaim — and a 28 percent jump in the 18-49 demo, natch — has agreed to host the next two Golden Globes Awards, in 2014 and 2015, NBC announced today. Speculation that they would return began nearly immediately after last year’s show ended, and Poehler herself now seems prescient with one of her opening jokes. “We want to assure you that we have no intention of being edgy or offensive tonight,” Poehler said during last year’s Globes, “because as Ricky [Gervais] learned the hard way, when you run afoul of the Hollywood Foreign Press, they make you host this show two more times.”

“Tina and Amy are two of the most talented comedic writer/performers in our business and they were a major reason the Golden Globes was the most entertaining awards show of last season,” said Paul Telegdy, NBC’s president of Alternative and Late Night Programming.  “We’re elated they wanted to host together again and that they committed for the next two years.”

Gillian Jacobs talks about her 'butt-demon' horror-comedy 'Bad Milo!'

Bad-Milo.jpg

In the new comedy-horror film Bad Milo! Gillian Jacobs plays the wife of a stressed-out white collar drone (Ken Marino) who discovers he has a demon living in his butt. Yes, you read that right — she spells her first name with a “g.” (Ha! But, seriously, that is who she plays in the film.)

So, what was the point in the Bad Milo! shoot when the Community star most thought, “I bet Dame Judi Dench has never had to do this”? “Throwing dildos at an ass-demon puppet,” laughs Jacobs. “And we shot in a basement of a church, which just added a whole other level of wrong.”

Directed and cowritten by first-time filmmaker Jacob Vaughan, Bad MIlo! is released today in select cinemas and is also available to view via iTunes and VOD. In addition to Jacobs and Marino, the movie stars Patrick Warburton, Steve Zissis, Mary Kay Place, Stephen Root, Kumail Nanjiani, and Big Lebowski nihilist Peter Stormare.

Below, Jacobs talks more about Bad MIlo! while gamely ignoring the egregious amount of times your writer uses the phrase “butt-demon” in the course of our conversation

'You're Next': How a group of indie filmmakers produced one of 2013's most terrifying movies

Director Adam Wingard has received rave reviews for his R-rated, home invasion horror-comedy You’re Next, which screened at several film festivals over the past couple of years and will be released August 23. But his often gore-drenched creative sensibility — and twisted sense of humor — is not everyone’s cup of Darjeeling. In the spring of 2007, for instance, the then just the 24-year-old Wingard appeared on the premiere episode of Fox TV’s On The Lot, a much-hyped but now little-remembered, Steven Spielberg-produced filmmakers’ competition with the first prize of a million-dollar development deal at Dreamworks. As Wingard recalls, he was immediately put off by the reality show vibe of the televised contest and decided to self-sabotage. So in an unaired segment, he pitched a movie about a giant, skinless, suburbia-terrorizing dog named Roger to the show’s three judges: Brett Ratner, Carrie Fisher, and Pretty Woman director Garry Marshall. “I kept emphasizing how violent the film needed to be, and I was doing a dance as I was pitching,” says Wingard, who, it is probably worth noting, stands 6 feet 4 inches tall. “The whole thing was like a performance art piece. I was shocked they didn’t use it because I went out of my way to make an ass out of myself on national television. It was gold!” Needless to say, the Alabama-raised Wingard did not progress to the next round. “I don’t remember what the judges said,” he chuckles, “but I think they were really disappointed in me.” READ FULL STORY
