Oh, NeNe. Some people have real problems, like Kandi wrestling with her crazy mother and Porsha not being able to buy both of the ridiculously expensive pairs of shoes she wants! You, however, need to get into a huff when your cast mates can't make it to the bus on time. Sure, Phaedra was three hours late, but what's a few hours between friends? Not that you're friends. And Kandi stopped at Chik-Fil-A when you had a perfectly lovely fruit plate waiting. So, never mind. Get into a huff. You're allowed, NeNe.

Since James Franco started popping up on critics' awards lists -- most notably with that tied LAFCA win -- for his off-the-wall performance in "Spring Breakers," I've noticed a lot of readers dismissing him as a "joke" contender. (Isn't that the inside-the-box thinking for which we usually chastise voters?) But while A24 has been appropriately playful with their campaign, it's no joke to them, nor to Franco himself. He talks to Mark Olsen: "Honestly, I don't know why people say, 'Really? Is this a real campaign?' I'm an Academy voter. I've been nominated for an Oscar. I'm more proud of this performance than anything that I've done ... I've been working in this industry for 16 years. I know when I'm a part of something that's cutting edge. I want to go out and say yeah … consider it." [LA Times]
Showtime’s “Masters of Sex” just concluded a debut season so strong that I ranked it the fifth-best show overall of 2013. I interviewed creator Michelle Ashford here, and I have a review of the finale coming up just as soon as I can spot a statistically average masturbator from a mile away...
A review of tonight's "Homeland" season finale coming up just as soon as you explain a Baby Bjorn to me...
Because this is "Once Upon A TIme," I don't know if I accept any character as really and truly dead, um, ever. I don't accept any plot twist as irreversible, either. But dammit, "OUAT" has me worried with this midseason finale. Logically, I understand there was a need for the show to make some big moves. I suspect, given the ending, those big moves won't be as permanent or lasting as earlier scenes led us to believe. But still, I think Kitsis and Horowitz have decided to shake the toy box to mix things up, and I can only hope (Hope! Hey, the theme of the episode!) it portends a fresh storyline -- one we richly deserve after the claustrophobic Neverland.
A quick review of tonight's "Tremé" coming up just as soon as I teach you the "Ghostbusters" theme...
Alfonso Cuarón's "Gravity" was a big favorite with the San Francisco Film Critics Circle this year, picking up four awards from the group including Best Director. But it was "12 Years a Slave" that the group named Best Picture of the year. Chiwetel Ejiofor and Cate Blanchet took top acting honors, while James Franco nabbed his second prize of the critics circuit. "American Hustle" won two awards, for Best Supporting Actress (Jennifer Lawrence) and Best Original Screenplay. Check out the nominees here, the full list of winners below and the rest of the season's craziness at The Circuit.
It was a speech of twinkly good grace from the Irish actor, then 70 years old – seasoned enough, in other words, to know that an Oscar is nice and all, but not so important that it can’t be left behind at the pearly gates. But it was also delivered with a kind of good-humored resignation. O’Toole may have been several years off retirement – and there was one more near-brush with victory still in his future -- but he seemed to know he’d never win a competitive Oscar. More to the point, he seemed to know there was nothing more to be gained from winning one, if indeed there ever had been. O’Toole’s charm, on screen and off, so often lay in being the guy just outside the inner circle.
Also handing out awards today was the Houston Film Critics Society. The group also went with "12 Years a Slave," bringing the film's Best Picture tally up to seven, for those keeping score at home. Chiwetel Ejiofor and Sandra Bullock picked up top acting honors, while Jared Leto and Lupita Nyong'o maintained their impressive dominance in the supporting ranks. Check out the nominees here and the full list of winners below. And, again, keep track at The Circuit.
