You KNOW Trump wakes up every morning hoping more kids are murdered by immigrants so it will help him in the polls.” –

    Alec Baldwin may not be satisfied merely playing the President of the United States on Saturday Night Live; instead, he may actually want the real job for himself. On Monday, Baldwin—who won an Emmy last year for his portrayal of Donald Trump on SNL—told Howard Stern that he could beat the current Commander in Chief if he decided to run for the top office in 2020. Should we add Baldwin’s name to the growing list of celebrities tied to the White House? Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Oprah Winfrey could use some company. While discussing the 2020 election, Baldwin said...

    While speaking onstage at the Tony Awards on Sunday night, actor Robert De Niro went after President Donald Trump, saying, “f*** Trump” multiple times. “I’m going to say one thing: ‘F— Trump,’” De Niro said before presenting an award. “It’s no longer ‘down with Trump.’ It’s ‘f— Trump.’” The audience responded by giving the actor a standing ovation.

    hough his impact during the Korean War was significant, Michael Drake said his father, Dale, was not a volunteer. "He was drafted into the Army to serve as an anesthesiology physician. That was his first job," said Michael, who himself is an anesthesiologist in Evansville. Dr. Dale Drake, who passed away on Tuesday, was stationed in the 8055 MASH unit in Korea. He was 93 at his death. Dale, along with his wife, Cathy — who worked in the same unit — would later help Hollywood shape the way America saw the Korean War. About 10 years after Korea, the...
  • Memorial Day: 5 Times Hollywood Disrespected Our Military Heroes on Television

    With Memorial Day weekend upon us, it's not all about a day off and a barbeque, it's about honoring and remembering those who made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom. Really, it's something we should be doing all year long, but in Hollywood it's the opposite. They seem to take joy in dragging down our military. I guess it's too much to expect them to show some respect and gratitude to those who defend their right to free speech, though, isn't it? Let's take a look at 5 ways in which Hollywood portrayed the military unfairly on TV this season.

    The mayor of West Hollywood, Calif., will join city officials on Wednesday to present adult film star Stormy Daniels with a Key to the City and a City Proclamation, according to a media advisory. In the press release, city officials recognized Daniels for her "leadership in the #RESIST movement" and noted that the city has previously passed resolutions calling for articles of impeachment to be introduced against President Trump. Daniels, the release reads, has "proven herself to be a profile in courage by speaking truth to power even under threats to her safety and extreme intimidation." The city will also...

    This week on “Saturday Night Live,” guest and former cast member Tina Fey brought back her old Sarah Palin character to deliver a message to members of the Trump administration. “Here’s a refresher: I was the first female on a Republican presidential ticket and now I get paid to tweet for Bass Pro Shops,” Fey said as Palin. “Take it from me, politics is a wild ride. One minute you’re on top, and then you’re gone in the blink of a Scaramucci. Well, I have a message for all the people in the Trump White House: enjoy your moment, who...

    Comedian Amy Schumer said her starring role in “I Feel Pretty” should have gone to a minority actress with a “harder” life story. [snip] “It’s not about an ugly, vile troll getting beautiful,” the actress said in response to critics of the movie’s premise. “It’s about a girl who really struggles with self-esteem, which is something we can all relate to. So, it just made me excited for people to see the movie. But also, I think it is fair to say that, you know, that it’s a lot harder for other people … and I recognize that I am...

    Molly Ringwald rose to prominence as John Hughes’ muse in the hit films “Sixteen Candles,” “Pretty in Pink,” and “The Breakfast Club,” but her most beloved movies are troubling her in hindsight. In a new essay for The New Yorker, Ringwald salutes and critiques her collaborations with Hughes, finding certain scenes in the director’s films to be misogynistic and homophobic. The actress makes it clear she loves Hughes and is proud of their work together, but that doesn’t mean their films should not be analyzed under a contemporary context. While Ringwald was showing her daughter “The Breakfast Club” for the...

    Go for it, Hollywood. You probably didn't watch the Academy Awards -- most people didn't -- but you might have caught a bit of Frances McDormand's acceptance speech for her Best Actress award. At the end of a stirring speech about women in post-Weinstein Hollywood, she said, "I have two words to leave with you tonight, ladies and gentlemen: inclusion rider." Don't feel bad if you don't know what an inclusion rider is. McDormand didn't either until recently. She told the press backstage that she had only learned about inclusion riders the previous week. So what are they? Simply put,...

    Well, the Oscars sure did suck, didn’t they? I used to watch them because I love movies, now I watched them for work purposes. And it felt like work. Judging by the ratings, the way I felt watching them was not unique, and a lot of people did not show up for work that day. The 2018 Oscars were the lowest rated in history due, in part, to the movies the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences nominated (they really embraced movies the public has shown no interest in), but mostly due to the show itself. They can try...

    The “immigrant” theme dominated the acceptance speech, and not for the first time Sunday, in one of the major Oscar categories — the best director award. Fantasy director Guillermo Del Toro won the Oscar for his film “The Shape of Water” and leaped right into the matter and said movies should lead to one world and erase national sovereignty.

    In case you missed the Oscars last night, host Jimmy Kimmel predictably lectured the country about politics, harped on leftism, went after Fox News and repeatedly made terribly unfunny jokes about Vice President Mike Pence and President Donald Trump. “We don’t make films like ‘Call Me By Your Name’ for money. We make them to upset Mike Pence," Kimmel said.Ahead of the big show Sunday night, Kimmel made it known he would engage in activism from the stage but according to the numbers, it didn't pay off. From TheWrap:  Jimmy Kimmel’s return as Oscars host received an 18.9 rating in Nielsen’s overnight...

    The ratings for Sunday night’s telecast of the 90th annual Academy Awards collapsed by a whopping 16 percent, which would mean an all-time low, according to early estimates. Variety reports that the “8 p.m.-11 p.m. portion of ABC’s telecast averaged an 18.9 household rating and 32 share in Nielsen’s metered market overnight ratings … That’s down about 16% from the 22.5/37 rating generated by the 2017 Oscars.” According to Deadline, the “18.9 appears to be an all-time low for the Oscars, below the previous low ratings point for the Oscars, logged with the 2008 telecast (21.9).” The ratings will be...

    Bucking expectations that this year's Academy Awards would be less stridently political, second-time host Jimmy Kimmel focused almost exclusively on politics, nearly dropping any pretense of humor. His monologue concluded with a call for Americans to attend a pro-gun control rally later this month and featured several barbs directed at the Trump Administration. Just seconds into the 90th annual Oscars, Kimmel introduced Lupito Nyong'o, an actress of Kenyan and Mexican descent. "Let the tweet storm from the president's toilet begin," Kimmel then commented. Concluding, Kimmel made a call for Americans to attend a March 24th rally in support of new...

    Clint Eastwood did it again with his newest film, The 15:17 to Paris. The 87-year-old icon drove liberal critics batty with his 2014 smash American Sniper. Heroism? Sacrifice? All-American values? It’s like garlic to some film critics. They’d rather swoon at films depicting the U.S. Military in an unsavory fashion. The 15:17 to Paris makes their jobs harder. The story focuses on three heroes (playing themselves) who thwarted a terrorist attack aboard a Paris-bound train in 2015.

    When Daniel Ellsberg, the defense analyst, leaked the Pentagon Papers to the press in 1971, it created one of the most significant newspaper stories -- and battles -- of the century. One thing it did not do was prevent the Vietnam War, although it may have shortened it. Now he is calling on officials within the government to leak "the Pentagon Paper of the Middle East" to modern reporters, to short-circuit another possible war. Ellsberg's challenge is found in the October issue of Harper's magazine, to appear next week. E&P has obtained an advance copy. The article is titled, "The...
  • Just how out-of-touch are the Oscars? Forget Best Picture; Check out Costume Design. Seriously.

    01/23/2018 8:37:05 PM PST · by dangus · 31 replies
    The fact that there is a type of movie called, "Oscar bait" is pretty damning. It suggests that there is a certain kind of movie that, regardless of how well it's done, is simply the type of movie (or acting performance) that is more likely than others to get nominated for Academy Awards. It's been often noted that over the past fourty years, there's been a complete disconnect between the sort of movies audiences like and the sort of movies the Hollywood pseudo-intelligentsia likes. Have audienes gotten dumber? Has Hollywood simply abandoned hope of box-office success with high-brow films. In...
  • Why Conservatives Must Support '12 Strong' (or Stop Complaining)

    Conservatives constantly complain about Hollywood … often for very good reasons. The industry’s voice is almost uniformly liberal. Major stars (like Amy Schumer and Michael Shannon) talk down to Red State denizens in the ugliest ways possible. Films often mock or denigrate the U.S. Military (think Redacted for a glaring Exhibit A). Liberal messages abound in many films and TV shows. Consider the “resistance” themes lurking within Supergirl and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Sites like NewsBusters cover this terrain aggressively. Tinsel Town gives the site’s writers plenty of fodder. Hollywood also hasn’t captured the heroism displayed by U.S. troops in Afghanistan....
