    After host Ricky Gervais admonished the Golden Globes winners Sunday night not to bring up politics in their acceptance speeches because they "know nothing about the real world," actress Michelle Williams did just that with a two minute long screed supporting abortion while accepting the award for Best Actress in a Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for TV. Williams, who, ironically, is pregnant, started out talking about choices in acting before transitioning to bodily choice, then seemingly admitted to her own abortion when she said she "wouldn't have been able to do this without employing a woman's right to...

    Felicity Huffman, Cats, Joe Pesci, the Catholic Church, Judi Dench and James Corden got the Ricky Gervais treatment during the opening monologue of tonight’s Golden Globe Awards, but none took the brunt of the host’s jibes quite as sharply as Hollywood itself. Casting the industry town as hypocritically woke – with a Jeffrey Epstein joke thrown in for good measure – the notoriously scathing British comic advised Golden Globe winners to skip the moralizing. Said Gervais, “Thank your agent and your God and…” The rest was bleeped, but he seemed to say something along the lines of “then get the...

    Actress Felicity Huffman on Friday was sentenced after she pleaded guilty in a college admissions fraud scandal — and she actually got jail time, 14 days in the clink. The “Desperate Housewives” appeared in Boston’s federal court, where she reportedly made yet another tearful apology for her actions.“I am deeply ashamed of what I have done. I have inflicted more damage than I could ever imagine,” she said before sentencing. While prosecutors had recommended the 56-year-old actress serve one month in prison, the judge cut that in half. Prosecutors also called for a $20,000 fine — the judge upped that...

    The story that’s stranger than fiction is becoming fiction: A scripted TV series based on the recent college admissions scandal that ensnared actresses Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin is in the works, according to our sister site Variety. Annapurna TV is producing the limited series, based on the upcoming book chronicling the scandal, Accepted, by Melissa Korn and Jennifer Levitz. Writer D.V. DeVincentis (The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story) is set to pen the adaptation. No network is attached to the project yet, though. To refresh your memory: Huffman and Loughlin were among a number of parents accused...

    April 22 (UPI) -- More than 100 university students in Vietnam are accused of manipulating their test scores in order to gain admission to the country's top colleges, according to a South Korean press report. Television network KBS reported Monday from Vietnam public anger is rising following revelations 108 students used their elite connections to gain entry into top schools. A total of 53 students in the group have voluntarily dropped out following the charges, or have been expelled from their institutions, the report said, quoting local Vietnamese news sources. All students accused of cheating in last year's June entrance...

    Prosecutors are “determined” to see that Hollywood actresses Lori Loughlin and Felicity Huffman receive jail time for their part in the elite college bribery case, according to a report. Deadline reported Wednesday that jail time for the actresses appears “more and more likely.” Sources told the Tinseltown-focused website that law enforcement officials have signaled that Loughlin and Huffman could serve between six months and just under two years behind bars. However, their level of cooperation with the investigation will ultimately dictate the length of their sentences and fines, Deadline’s source added. . . .

    Felicity Huffman made her first court appearance since her arrest on charges she’d cheated her daughter’s way into college. The “Desperate Housewives” star stands accused of engaging the services of William Rick Singer to bribe an SAT proctor, who is alleged to have corrected her daughter’s answers to ensure a higher score. On Monday Ms. Huffman agreed to plead guilty to a single count of conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud. Here’s the great unasked question: What’s the moral difference between Ms. Huffman’s getting her daughter into college with an SAT score she didn’t earn and...

    Felicity Huffman has agreed to plead guilty for her role in the college bribery scam. The actress is among 13 parents who on Monday agreed to admit to the charges. She was charged with conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud for paying someone to alter her daughter's SAT results to make sure they were high enough for her to gain admission to USC. Other parents, namely Lori Loughlin and her husband Mossimmo Giannulli, are yet to make deals or enter pleas. The next step in Huffman's case is a sentencing hearing which is yet to be...

    As the fallout from the nationwide elite college bribery scheme continues, the indicted Felicity Huffman, Lori Loughlin and STX Entertainment co-founder Bill McGlashan have all been hit today in a multi-billion dollar lawsuit from one very angry mother. That’s “no less than $500,000,000,000” angry to be specific. “Joshua applied to some of the colleges where the cheating took place and did not get in,” says award winning former Oakland school teacher Jennifer Kay Toy of her 4.2 graduating son. “Joshua and I believed that he’d had a fair chance just like all other applicants but did not make the cut...

    Republicans and Democrats on Wednesday were calling for hearings about the massive college admissions scam uncovered this week that let dozens of wealthy parents, including actresses Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin, pay thousands and in some cases millions of dollars to get their kids into elite universities. “I am deeply concerned about this, and I’m worried about how widespread issues like this may be throughout the country," said Rep. Bradley Byrne, an Alabama Republican on the House Education and Labor Committee. "We must ensure that no one is denied an opportunity due to the illegal actions of rogue parents or...

    A thing that occurs to you if you attend an elite college or university, as I did, is that most of the professors teaching you are more or less the same beleaguered time-servers who would be teaching you at any other school. I well remember the sad, unshaven schlump in corduroys who taught one of my introductory English courses: He was fine. He knew his stuff. But so did the people who taught me English at my public high school. Sure, at name-brand colleges you can attend huge lectures given by name-brand professors who appear on television and the op-ed...

    (UPDATED with information from law enforcement press conference) Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin knowingly broke the law trying to get their kids into top tier colleges, according to the FBI and the U.S Attorney’s office for the district of Massachusetts.

The just unsealed March 6 indictment notes that the...
