Wow, it’s like being back in 2008 again. Or at least back in 2012, watching that scene from Game Change when Julianne Moore does an impression of Sarah Palin watching Tina Fey also do an impression of Sarah Palin.
Updated: Tina Fey responds below!
Have you been reading all about Taylor Swift telling Amy Poehler and Tina Fey that they are going to hell for their Golden Globes jokes in the most recent issue of Vanity Fair? Or wait, was that Katie Couric who told Taylor Swift that, and the singer was just relating it back in an anecdote? Did Amy Poehler say she was actually going to hell? Did Couric totally rip off a very famous Madeleine Albright quote about a basketball?
If you are confused, don’t worry. Here are some GIFs from Mean Girls to help explain.
Golden Globes 2013
Not too many surprises this year in the nominations, announced today, for the 2013 Golden Globe Awards. This year, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler will be making history as the first female duo to host the ceremony, held on Jan. 13., but other than that, it’s all Lincoln (seven nominations), Argo (five) and Django Unchained (ditto).
The Eight-Day Week
It’s hard to believe Jon Stewart has time to spare before the presidential election, but for the fourth year running, he’s hosting his Night of Too Many Stars benefit, an apolitical gathering devoted to raising money for autism research. Funny people (Tina Fey, Tracy Morgan, Seth Rogen, Jerry Seinfeld) and,
The Emmys, television’s slightly-less-glitzy answer to the Oscars, are this Sunday, and we have some relatively uneducated guesses as to which of the nominees will bring home an oddly spiky statuette.
The Emmy nominations are set to be announced tomorrow, and all eyes in coffee shops and traffic-thirsty blogs will be on the fate of Girls. Let’s predict what other shows were widely regarded as good this past year!
The Emmy nominations will be announced July 19, and we’re already wondering who will end up nominated; in particular, the question of New York media darling Lena Dunham weighs upon us. Ms. Dunham, creator of HBO’s Girls, could get anywhere between zero and four nominations as creator, writer, director, and star of the show (she could Read More
Since the launch of Between Two Ferns on FunnyOrDie.com in 2008, people have been clamoring for Zach Galifianakis and Scott Aukermanto turn their short-form experimental interview project into a 30-minute television show. (We certainly wouldn’t have minded if Mr. Galifiankis’ awkward, confrontational interrogations of celebrities replaced the majority of television interviews.)
Before watching last weekend’s Comedy Central’s Comedy Awards, fans of Between Two Ferns finally got a taste of what a 30 minute episode of the show would be like, in the form of Between Two Ferns: A Fairytale of New York.
Lee Aronsohn, showrunner, executive producer, and co-creator of Two and a Half Men, is nobly trying to take up the torch of blatant misogyny in the face of the crisis currently faced in comedy: women and their labia. As we all know, there has been a dearth recently of men yelling about how not funny women are ever since Christopher Hitchens passed away and Eddie Brill was fired from Letterman, but Mr. Aronsohn is obviously up to the challenge. (And should have extra time on his hands after his show dies.)
But Sunday while talking to The Hollywood Reporter at the Toronto Screenwriting Conference, Mr. Aronsohn, who knows comedy when he sees it (which is why Two and a Half Men is the most critically lauded piece of humor writing around and is doing really well these days) just laid it all on the line re: his feelings about the comedic ability of ladies who talk about their gross, disgusting vaginas. He applauds them, but also thinks that it’s time to move on, you know?
The Academy has released an incomplete list of this weekend’s Oscar presenters. Based on past experience, what categories shall they present. Here are our best guesses!
Christian Bale will present Best Supporting Actress; Melissa Leo will present Best Supporting Actor; Colin Firth will present Best Actress; Natalie Portman will present Best Actor. This gender-swapping Read More
