Philip Seymour Hoffman Dies

Philip Seymour Hoffman dies

Actor Philip Seymour Hoffman (Capote, The Master) died on Sunday of an apparent drug overdose. He was 46.

Hoffman was found in his New York City apartment by friend/playwright David Bar Katz, who went to visit the actor after he was unable to reach him. Hoffman, who had long struggled with a drug addiction and went to rehab in May 2013, was found with a syringe in his forearm. Heroin was also found on the scene.

Hoffman was cast in a new television show on Showtime called “Happyish.” The network released a statement on Sunday calling the actor “one of our generation’s finest and most brilliant actors.”

“He was also a gifted comedic talent,” the statement said. “It was a great privilege and pleasure to work with him and we are all absolutely devastated by this sudden loss. Our thoughts go out to his family at this very difficult time.”

In 2006, Hoffman won an Academy Award for best actor for his role in the film “Capote,” where he portrayed author Truman Capote.

“I try to live my life in such a way that I don’t have profound regrets,” the actor  told The New York Times in 2008. “That’s probably why I work so much. I don’t want to feel I missed something important.”

Hoffman is survived by his three young children with his partner, costume designer Mimi O’Donnell.

Jeff Bridges, Lena Dunham, Jim Carrey, Justin Timberlake and other entertainers respond to Hoffman’s death on Twitter.

Supporting Actor in a Motion Picture- Jared Leto- “Dallas Buyers Club”

Motion Picture Musical or Comedy- “American Hustle”

Motion picture Drama- “12 Years A Slave”

Cecil B. Demille award- Woody Allen

Okay, so there were some obvious snubs at the Globes this year: “Fruitvale Station” didn’t receiving any nominations and the   “Nebraska” and “August Osage County” filmmakers went home empty handed. Jennifer Lawrence (American Hustle) won over June Squibb (“Nebraska”) and Julia Roberts (“August Osage County”) for best supporting actress in a musical or comedy?! We like the ‘girl on fire’ but we definitely didn’t see that one coming. Even Lawrence herself credited the Hollywood Foreign Press Association with being “too generous.”

We are happy about some winners, though. Bruce Dern’s performance in “Nebraska” was nothing short of exceptional, but Leonardo DiCaprio was long over due! His Quaalude induced “don’t answer the phone” scene with Jonah Hill will have you in tears (if you don’t know what that means, then you haven’t seen The Wolf Of Wall Street. Shame on you!)

And what the hell was with the polite music not so politely cutting everyone off?! Even the biggest winners of the night were interrupted: Leonardo DiCaprio, Jennifer Lawrence, Cate Blanchett (who found humor in it by asking if the people at home can hear it too), Bryan Cranston, Jacqueline Bisset (okay, so she deserved it, god knows!) just to name a few.

Check out Bisset’s train wreck of a speech below:

Hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler were tastefully hilarious as always, jabbing male stars like George Clooney and Leonardo DiCaprio on their discriminating taste in women.

Golden Globes 2014 Fashion: Best and Worst Dressed

The 71st annual Golden Globe awards aired on Sunday night, so of course we have to let you all know who the winners were… in the fashion department that is!

Best Dressed

1. Lupita Nyong’o

lupita nyong'o 2014 golden globes

The 12 Years a Slave star lit up the red carpet in a fierce Ralph Lauren gown equipped with a cape. Looks like Lupita is on her way to becoming a superstar and a fashion superhero. Not bad for a newcomer!

2. Margot Robbie

Another newbie, The Wolf of Wall Street actress, wore a simple yet stunning eggshell and emerald Gucci gown with a high slit and deep V neckline. The Aussie actress wasn’t nominated for her supporting role in the film, but she did get to rock this number on the red carpet and kiss Leonardo DiCaprio. Jealous much?

3. Caitlin FitzGerald

caitlin fitzgerald 2014 golden globe awards

The Masters of Sex star paid tribute to old Hollywood glamour in this classic asymmetrical powder blue Emelia Wickstead frock. Classy move, Caitlin.

4. Lena Dunham

lena dunham 2014 golden globes

The Girls creator/star redeemed herself from last year’s hot mess of a brown dress with this lovely, bright yellow Zac Posen gown. We were rooting for you, Lena. And you didn’t disappoint.

5. Leslie Mann

leslie mann at the 2014 golden globe awards

Surprise, surprise! The comedic actress (This is 40, Funny People) showed off her dark (and sexy) side in a sleek and sophisticated lace Dolce and Gabbana dress.

6. Matthew McConaughey


2013 turned out to be a great year for Mr. McConaughey, who had roles in some of the year’s most critically acclaimed dramas (Dallas Buyers Club, The Wolf of Wall Street, True Detective). Matthew showed up in a dark green and black Dolce and Gabbana tux paired with the best accessory a man could have: Camila Alves. Two cheers for the guys that aren’t afraid to wear a little color.

7. Bradley Cooper

Four words describe the American Hustle star in this tailored to perfection Tom Ford tux: Bow-chica-wow-wow!

8. Reese Witherspoon

reese witherspoon at the 2014 golden globe awards

Reese kept it simple and chic is this form-fitting, turquoise Calvin Klein dress.

9. Cate Blanchett

Not sure there’ll ever be a best dressed list in awards show history that the Blue Jasmine actress (wearing Armani) won’t make.

10. Zooey Deschanel

zooey deschanel golden globe awards 2014

The New Girl actress also made our worst dressed list last year but pulled herself together in this adorable gold Oscar de la Renta get up.

11. Sofia Vergara

sofia vergara at the 2014 golden globe awards

The Modern Family actress was the belle of the ball in this gorgeous Zac Posen gown.

12. Jessica Chastain

jessica chastain 2014 golden globe awards

2013′s best actress nominee for Zero Dark Thirty (who also made our list that year) stunned in this gorgeous black Givenchy gown. Who needs an Oscar when you’ve got Givenchy?

Worst Dressed:

1. Elisabeth Moss

elisabeth Moss at the 2014 golden globes

Although we always applaud red carpet risk takers, this J. Mendel number IS NOT, I repeat, NOT a red carpet look, Elisabeth (Top of the Lake). Shame on you! If Gwyneth Paltrow couldn’t make the ‘goth chic‘ look work for her, no one can. Stop trying people!

2. Aubrey Plaza

aubrey plaza 2014 golden globe awards

Not sure how this hot mess of a prom dress ended up on the Parks and Recreation actress… but it pains us. Deeply.

3. Jennifer Lawrence

jennifer lawrence at the 2014 golden globe awards

Say it ain’t so! Last year’s best actress GG and Oscar winner (Silver Linings Playbook) and this year’s best supporting actress in a comedy (American Hustle) is sure to make Joan Rivers’ fashion police hit list with this odd Dior haute couture black and white number. We’ll just cut her some slack since she also made our worst dressed list last year.

4. Beau Bridges (The Millers)

beau bridges 2014 golden globe awards

Nice guy. Mean tailor.

5. Sandra Bullock

sandra bullock 2014 golden globe awards

Looks like the Oscar winner and Gravity star (wearing Prabal Gurunghasn’t yet arrived back on planet earth. This is color blocking gone terribly wrong!

6. Maria Menounos

maria menounos 2014 golden globes

Wrong on so many levels: Color, style, accessories. Loved her on Dancing With the Stars, though.

7. Emma Watson

emma watson at the 2014 golden globe awards

How can one bore in DiorOnce again: NOT right for the GGs!

8. Kaley Cuoco

kaley cuoco at the 2014 golden globe awards

The Big Bang Theory actress looked stale in this Rani Zakhem gown that blends in a little too much with her skin tone (and everything else).

9. Julia Roberts


The August: Osage County star (and our personal favorite for best actress in a comedy or musical) disappointed in this dull black and white Dolce and Gabbana dress. We know you’re one of the best actresses alive, but seriously, at least try if you’re going to walk the red carpet.

10. Heidi Klum

heidi klum at the 2014 golden globe awards

This former Victoria’s Secret model made our best dressed list last year! WTF happened here?

And there you have it! Our best and worst dressed celebs at the 2014 Golden Globe awards. Want to see more outfits we couldn’t fit on our list? See:!1/taylor-swiftgolden-globe-awards-2014/

‘Boardwalk Empire’ To End With Season 5

Say it ain’t so HBO ;(

HBO’s critically acclaimed drama, “Boardwalk Empire” will conclude in 2014 with season 5.

Boardwalk season 4

HBO programming executive, Michael Lombardo, made the announcement on Thursday adding that the shows creator, Terrence Winter (“The Sopranos”, “The Wolf Of Wall Street”) created “one for the ages.”

Though ratings fell 20 percent during the fourth season,”Boardwalk Empire” is ranked third as the networks most watched series and boasts executive producers such as Martin Scorsese and Mark Wahlberg.

Season four saw stars such as Patricia Arquette, Margot Bingham, and Jeffrey Wright added to the cast. The season focused on the struggle between Chalky White (Michael K. Williams) and Dr. Valentin Narcisse (Jeffrey Wright) to run the Harlem drug scene rather than its usual plot of attacks by adversaries of Enoch ‘Nucky’ Thompson (Steve Buscemi). The phenomenal third season featured Bobby Cannavale as Thompson’s most volatile and steadfast enemy. Cannavale won an Emmy for the supporting role.

boardwalk season4The decision appears to be amicable and based on creative direction of the series adapted from Nelson Johnson’s book Boardwalk Empire: The Birth, High Times and Corruption of Atlantic City.

“We’re thrilled to get the go-ahead for a fifth season of Boardwalk Empire,” said Winter. “After much discussion with my creative team and HBO, we’ve decided to wrap up the series after such a great run and look forward to bringing it to a powerful and exciting conclusion.”

TMS is so sad to see Boardwalk Empire go. We’ve been die hard fans of the show since season one. Oh well. We’re sure it’ll go out in true BE fashion… with a bang!
