Michael Keaton explains why he didn't win the Oscar



Keaton: They have a luncheon before the awards. When you're in the room, it's really something. Everyone in the world is there. You really feel like you're in the real world for what I do for a living. So I was walking back, kinda walking to my table. There was a gentleman sitting at the table. Really nicely-dressed man. Probably around 70's. He's sitting by himself, looks up at me. I look at him. He calls me over. Says "Just wanna tell you... That's maybe the best performance I've ever seen in any movie." He's been in the Academy for over 50 years. "Not only did I go back and see the film in theaters 3 times which I never do... Your performance will go down in history..." When he finished, I thought to myself "Pfft... I am a LOCK."
Letterman: Yeah! I would think so.
Keaton: This guy... He's been around forever, he knew everyone at the Academy. And I thought "That's about it. That's all I need!" So we're talking and I say "That is very nice of you, sir. Thank you." And as I get up, he says "Just remember, Michael... When it comes to winning an Academy Award... Illness always wins." [exaggerated laughter] I know! I know!
[Weak laughter from crowd]
Keaton: And I thought... "I am so fucked right now." It's over! I went from "This is a done deal" to "I'm done."

ACLU demands investigation into Hollywood's bias against women directors




  • So far ACLU has asked the state of California and federal agencies to investigate Hollywood's discriminatory practices

  • Sent a 15 page letter to the federal Equal Employment Opportunity commission, the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing and the Labor Department’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs detailing discrimination against women

  • They might launch a lawsuit in the future

  • In the 60s the Justice Department found evidence of discrimation and measures were put in place to promote minority directors but those failed

  • Of the top-grossing 100 films from 2013 and 2014, just 1.9 percent were directed by women

The Following 2-Hour Series Finale Promo: "Evermore"



Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D03WaTSkczI

Is it me or did "series finale" come out of nowhere? I feel like this show just started! IMO, except for Joe's exit, nothing in this season felt like the end of anything. But I guess it makes sense. With Joe gone and the whole theme of Edgar Allen Poe completely abandoned, there's no real way to continue the show. IDK, I was disappointed about a lot of things this season.

I am going to miss Ryan and Joe's bromance and I hope Sam Underwood and Michael Ealy get more work. I hope Mike pulls through :( Poor Mike.

Colin Hanks asks for more women in Star Wars


His caption: So, the other night, on May the 4th to be exact, I sat down with my 4 year old daughter and showed her Star Wars: A New Hope. It was her first time watching it. She loved it. Her favorite character was Princess Leia. She kept asking "Where is Princess Leia? Where is Princes Leia?" A few nights later, I show her Empire Strikes Back (or avs she called it "The Emperor stripes back) and within four minutes of watching the movie she says, "It's so tiring watching these movies. It's always boys, boys, boys and there's only one girl." I could not of been more proud of her. So today I take her to Toys "R" Us to buy her a light saber and a Princess Leia toy. After being told that the light sabers were "in the boys section", she picks out the light saber of her choosing and asks about the Princess Leia toy. One problem: they only had the "slave Leia". As you can see, sad depressing, "slave Leia". So wrong. The only good to come from this is that, once again, my daughter makes me look at the world in a whole new light. #HelpusJJyoureouronlyhope

First trailer for Bollywood Princess Priyanka Chopra's ABC show: Quantico









Quantico follows a group of young FBI recruits, all of whom have a specific reason for wanting to join the bureau. In the lead role is Alex Weaver (Priyanka Chopra), a young woman with a desire to learn more about her past, who believes that the FBI is the place to find answers. She’s joined by by Ryan Booth (Jake McLaughlin), southern belle Shelby Wyatt (Johanna Braddy), hijab wearing Nimah Anwar (Yasmine Al Massri), golden boy Caleb Haas (Graham Rogers), Brooklyn hipster Simon Asher (Tate Ellington) and clean cut Mormon Eric Packer.
The group is overseen and trained by Liam, who has his own sketchy history, and the training academy’s director, Miranda Shaw (Aunjanue Ellis), whose family life has recently suffered a terrible tragedy. The show flashes between the recruits’ present day training and their hidden pasts, but it also flashes forward to the near future, where it is revealed that one of the recruits caused the most devastating terrorist attack on U.S. soil since 9/11. But which one? That’s what Alex is determined to find out.

Starbucks rolls out 'Mini Frappuccino'



-Started Monday through July 6.
-The new size is just 10 ounces, compared with 12 ounces for "tall" or small size.
-The calories in a Mini Frappuccino vary depending on the flavor.obvs For example, the regular coffee with no whipped cream, Starbucks says it'll have 120 calories and 24 grams of sugar.
-Starbucks says the "mini" should cost about 20 to 30 cents less than a small.Not enough of a discount in price imo

What is your go-to Starbucks order, ONTD? Are you tempted to get this new mini frapp for the adorably small cup & the inevitable Instagram post OR is the cost difference not enough to justify the cutesy gimmick?

Castle Season 7 Finale, 7x23, "Hollander's Woods" Recap

best scene of the episode:




[spoilers for beckett and her future]
basically, some point before the finale, kate took the captain's test and is concerned she didn't do well enough - she gets to the panel, and the two dudes are total assholes to her - reaming her out about castle, etc. they tell her she's not captain material. she beings to walk away, an in true badass beckett/stana form, she comes back, formidable and strong, telling them off - that none of her work has suffered, that she is in fact that youngest female to make detective in the NYPD and has the highest case closure rate, and the two guys at the panel smile and basically tell her she did exactly what they were hoping for - that they're looking for someone to fill a NY Senate seat, and she's at the top of the list. (with zero mention of the uncomfortable fact that she will most likely be filling her mother's killer's Senate seat, but okay .....)


and lol ABC president paul lee just definitively said that season 8 will not be the last. 1) good luck with that buddy. 2) no thank you 3) lmaoooooo

Brandon Flowers’ - The Desired Effect Review (Leaked)



Brandon Flowers' second solo album 'The Desired Effect' will be out May 18th. Reviews are coming in and critics are praising Flowers' second solo effor for its "snappy lyrics and catchy hooks."

Producer Ariel Rechtshaid who produced the fugly Haim and Charli XCX's albums emphasized soft keyboard tones, rather than sticking to the digital pop trash music of late. Arrangements exhibit an an Eighties sound, with synths decaying amid multi-tracked harmonies or something.

Writer claims the rest of the Killers should watch out before their wigs get snatched and they don't have a job to come back to.

Kacey Musgraves Announces New Album 'Pageant Material'


Kacey Musgraves, who wore the crown as the CMA's New Artist of the Year in 2013, thanks to the success of her gold-certified debut album, Same Trailer Different Park, is polishing up her tiara: On June 23rd, she'll release Pageant Material, her highly anticipated second LP.

As she did on her first LP, Musgraves serves as co-producer with Shane McAnally and Luke Laird on Pageant Material, which was recorded at Nashville's historic RCA Studio A.

"Going back into the studio this time around was really fun and exciting for me because I knew more about myself and my direction," the Texas native said in a statement. "The majority of Pageant Material was recorded live — which was a bit of a departure from Same Trailer — and gave it more of a concise, classic sound. All of the incredible musicians were in the same room playing on the entire record, and I think that spirit comes across. The last couple of years have done so much for me, and this project was really affected by that in the best way. There are certain moments lyrically that still hit me hard even after listening so many times. It's a great glimpse into where my head is from Same Trailer to now."

Jane the Virgin and the Case for Team Single Mom Jane




In a nutshell: "Next season, the series should explore the ups and downs of a twenty-something Latina single mom, while she’s going to graduate school. You won’t find that anywhere else on TV, and it would be a compelling narrative for the Peabody and Golden Globe-winning show.

What really would make Jane the Virgin even more groundbreaking would be if it asserted itself in the discourse of single motherhood portrayals in entertainment and media, especially for single mothers of color."

Person Of Interest Season 5 To Be 13 Episodes

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

The producers apparently feel 22 episodes a season for this type of show (both serial and procedural) is a lot. They have been discussing this with CBS for since S2

I agree and think this is a good idea for a show that is essentially science fiction. I don't mind the procedural aspect of the show and often times they are still good but there were obviously filler episodes that were sometimes kind of boring and dragged and I wanted them to get back to the mythology and the overarching narrative. Plus with a full season long show there were a lot of breaks that were frustrating and made it hard to keep up with what was going on and who was who. What do you think POI watchers?

Cate Blanchett Opens the Closet Door with Lesbian Romance ‘Carol’


  • Cate feels that the dominance of male-driven stories on film is bad for business

  • It's great that so many women are now nuturting projects for women, but they have to continue to push forward

  • For example, 'Carol' had been in the development stage for 15 years, so she wasn't sure that the movie would ever be made

  • Good roles for women are often neglected because young males are the target audiences for studios even though women make up around half of ticket sales

  • The interviewer asks Cate if this was her first turn as a lesbian and she answers "On film - or in real life?" ... "Yes. Many times." (lol)

  • Aside from drawing from personal experiences, Cate also said that she prepared for the role by reading banned girl-on-girl books from the period and she discussed errogenous zones with the costume designer

  • She talks about other stuff like not googling herself, or how she iwll never join twitter because it's too addictive
