Harry Shum Jr. Named Ambassador for the 2019 SAG Awards

Harry Shum Jr. Named Ambassador for the 2019 SAG Awards
Make way for the 2019 SAG Awards' new ambassador! Harry Shum Jr. has claimed the coveted spot this year—and deservedly so, as he's appeared on both the big and small screens. Most notably, perhaps, is his role as Magnus Bane on Freeform's Shadowhunters: The Mortal Instruments, which earned him the Male TV Star of 2018 award at the E! People's Choice Awards last month. Shum, of course, also starred as Charlie Wu in Warner Bros.' Crazy Rich Asians. And let's not forget he is a former SAG Award winner (Outstanding Ensemble in a Comedy Series) for his work on Glee. The actor, who last month announced that he and wife Shelby Robara are having a baby girl, can add this new title to...

Siegel’s career in documentaries spans more than 20 years and was highlighted by “Trials of Muhammad Ali,” which premiered at the 2013 Tribeca Film Festival and aired on PBS’ “Independent Lens.” The series followed the late boxer’s struggles outside the ring as he converted to Islam, changed his name and fought to overturn the prison sentence he received for refusing to serve in the Vietnam War.

Vanessa Redgrave Teams Up with Daughter Joely Richardson in Trailer for The Aspern Papers
Vanessa Redgrave is joining forces with her daughter Joely Richardson in a new film.

In a People exclusive trailer, the mother-daughter duo stars in the upcoming The Aspern Papers which follows Redgrave’s elderly Juliana Bordereau as she makes it her life’s mission to hide love letters she shared with her former lover, famed poet Jeffrey Aspern.

Amy Poehler Is Ready For a Parks and Rec Reunion, and Um, Same!

Amy Poehler Is Ready For a Parks and Rec Reunion, and Um, Same!
It's been three years since we tearfully bid adieu to Parks and Recreation, and we've pretty much been pining for a reboot ever since the emotional series finale aired. As it turns out, dedicated fans aren't the only ones on board with the idea of reuniting Pawnee's finest - leading lady Amy Poehler is, too. "I'm technically available," Poehler said at the 10th anniversary celebration dinner of Smart Girls, the organization she founded. "I have like six of Leslie's blazers in my closet, so anytime."

From 2009 to 2015, Poehler played the role of Leslie Knope, the competitive deputy director of the Pawnee Parks and Recreation Department, a proud waffle-lover, and an even prouder feminist. When the NBC sitcom ended, there were hints that Leslie would go on to become President. While addressing the possibility of a reunion, Poehler said she hadn't given much thought to Leslie's storyline, adding that maybe she'd be "president of the moon.

Camilla Posing With a Tiny Pony Called Harry Is the Holiday Gift You Didn't Know You Needed
If you thought the cutest royal photos of 2018 would feature one of the young royals, you were sorely mistaken. Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis played a good game, but they've just been pipped to the post by a cute redhead called Harry. No, not that one. This Harry is a mini Shetland pony, and he totally stole the spotlight as he made the acquaintance of the Duchess of Cornwall when she attended a Christmas Carol Service for the animal welfare charity Brooke Action for Working Horses and Donkeys in London on Wednesday.

The pair, who I like to think are now best friends, were also joined by Ollie the donkey, who has definitely been perfecting his photo face for some time. The three were photographed at the Guards chapel in Westminster, and from the look on Camilla's face, we think she was pretty overwhelmed by the adorable little pony.

This "Baby, It's Cold Outside" Cover Is Going Viral For Its Questionable Lyrics About Consent

  • Popsugar
This
The lyrics of "Baby, It's Cold Outside" just got a questionable makeover.

Over the last few years, "Baby, It's Cold Outside" has gone from being that cutesy duet you probably first heard in Elf to a song banned by radio stations over the holidays. The tune, which was written by Frank Loesser and popularized in the 1949 film Neptune's Daughter, has left fans feeling more and more uncomfortable due to its suggestive lyrics, which have led many to wonder if they describe an instance of date rape.

In a scene where a male character is trying to keep a woman from leaving, she sings "My answer is no," before he responds that she can't possibly leave because of the heavy snow. "What's the sense of hurting my pride?" he asks as she tries to leave again, before she eventually exclaims, "Say, what's in this drink?" It's that line in particular that

What Sets the SAG Awards Apart From the Rest

There's nothing like being honored by your peers. Winning an Oscar or an Emmy comes with an undeniable amount of prestige, while box office returns and ratings give you a window into how the public feels about your art, but to have the people who know your craft the best--your former co-stars, your audition competition, your time slot rivals--deem your performance the best in your field that year is an unparalleled sense of validation. Enter the Screen Actors Guild Awards. One of the younger award shows on the block, the SAG Awards were established only 25 years ago by what was then known as the Screen Actors Guild, the union formed in 1933 to represent film and television principal and background performers...

It's been a hot minute since Drake has blessed us with a shirtless photo, and boy, oh boy, did he deliver. Just a few days after receiving seven Grammy Awards nominations, the 32-year-old artist shared a thirst-inducing mirror selfie on Instagram Stories while enjoying his post-tour vacation in Turks & Caicos.

Screen Actors Guild Awards Shockers: Regina King Shut Out, Margot Robbie Surprises!

Screen Actors Guild Awards Shockers: Regina King Shut Out, Margot Robbie Surprises!
The 2019 Screen Actors Guild nominations are in — and they’re full of some shocking surprises and snubs.

Most notable is Regina King, favored to be a frontrunner for the best supporting actress Oscar for her performance in If Beale Street Could Talk, who was shut out of the equivalent race at the SAG awards. Her acclaimed film, from Moonlight director Barry Jenkins, didn’t receive a single nomination.

Her category was full of shockers, including Margot Robbie for her role as Queen Elizabeth in Mary Queen of Scots, which up until now hasn’t received any awards love.

If Beale Street Could Talk: Here's the Powerful Story Behind the Adaptation

If Beale Street Could Talk: Here's the Powerful Story Behind the Adaptation
Barry Jenkins left us in awe with his lush, nuanced storytelling in 2016's Moonlight, and now, he's poised to do it again with the drama If Beale Street Could Talk. Due in theaters on Dec. 25, it's already a critical darling with three Golden Globe nominations to its name - and award season has barely begun.

In his latest project, Jenkins adapts James Baldwin's book of the same name, the title of which alludes to W.C. Handy's "Beale Street Blues." It pays homage to the Memphis street that became a bustling cultural spot for black artists and activists in the 20th century. Baldwin grounds his novel in 1970s Harlem, but there's a timelessness to it that resonates with the buildup to the civil rights movements and the current Black Lives Matter movement. And while it respects context, the book also develops its characters' internal lives with a tragic story that'll haunt you.
