  • Sarah Michelle Gellar’s daughter is her stylist

    While many stars have fancy pantsy highly paid stylists picking out their awards show wear, Sarah Michelle Gellar took advice from someone who may know her a little better — her daughter! The Buffy star told reporters that her two-year-old daughter, Charlotte, picked out her dress for the 2012 Golden Globes. “My 2-year-old walked in,… More ▸

  • Congrats to the tribe members nominated for Golden Globes!

    The Golden Globe nominees were announced today, and once again the Jews really just dominate that shiz. Below is the list of nominations that are Jewishly inspired, whether through actors, directors, or just general holiness. Mazal tov, kiddos!         Best Motion Picture: Drama –          Moneyball (Jonah Hill and Aaron Sorkin) Best Motion… More ▸

  • Billy Crystal just tweeted that he’s gonna host the Oscars

    Sad news, Muppet fans. Billy Crystal just tweeted that he will be hosting the 84th Academy Awards. Crystal will be replacing Eddie Murphy, who stepped down from hosting the show after the original producer Brett Ratner resigned. Ratner made an offensive comment this week during a Q&A session following a screening of his new movie… More ▸

  • Oscars producer Brett Ratner resigns, causes host Eddie Murphy to quit

    “Tower Heist” director Brett Ratner was supposed to have the much coveted job of producing the 84th Academy Awards this year. He even brought the star of “Tower Heist,” Eddie Murphy, to be the host of the show. He was supposed to, anyway. But one comment during a Q&A session following the screening of the film has… More ▸

  • People’s Choice Awards nominees announced

    With the nominees released today, it seems like the 38th annual People’s Choice Awards will, in true Hollywood fashion, have a hearty dose of Tribe members representin’. From the regulars (Daniel Radcliffe and Natalie Portman might as well have trophies sent directly to their display cases), to the pleasant surprises (uh, hi Gene Simmons!), there… More ▸

  • Emmys roundup

    Last night the Emmys were awarded in Los Angeles and all of television glitterati (and a lot of film stars since the distinction between television and movie stars has steadily blurred over the past decade) showed up to demonstrate their best acting skills by pretending to be entertained by the evening’s proceedings.
    Even Charlie Sheen was on hand to present the award for Lead Actor in a Comedy Series. But before he got started listing the nominees, he needed to do some penance. (We are getting close to Rosh Hashanah, after all.) “Before I present Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series, my old category,” he began, “I want to take a moment to get something off my chest and say a few words to verybody here from Two and a Half Men. From the bottom of my heart, I wish you nothing but the best for this upcoming season. We spent eight wonderful years together and I know you will continue to make great television.”
    Just like that bit of faux sincerity, the rest of the show felt forced and poorly scripted. Yet unlike every other armchair critic out there, I’m not going to make this post about how dreadful the show was because this was hardly a surprise. The Emmys are unwatchable virtually every year. We’d all be better entertained watching C-SPAN. Book TV anyone?
    Now onto the awards. More ▸

  • Daniel Radcliffe wins a surfboard

    It’s not an Oscar but for his work in the final part of the “Harry Potter” series, Daniel Radcliffe has been voted “Choice Summer Movie Star (Male)” at the Teen Choice Awards. These awards, which come in surfboard form, are not exactly handed out on the basis of emotionally layered, nuanced performances. After all, the… More ▸
