    Imagine it's late 2011. The world just found out about Jerry Sandusky, former assistant Penn State football coach who would be convicted of repeatedly raping children in 2012. Penn State higher-ups, in an attempt to turn the focus of the scandal away from the school, decide to turn an annual banquet into a celebration of those fighting child rape. They call up head coach Joe Paterno. They call up President Graham Spanier. They call up athletic director Tim Curley. All of them give long, brave speeches about the evils of sexual exploitation of children resulting in rousing applause from all...

  • Cheney Haters Flop at the Golden Globes

    Anyone catching the television ads for the Dick Cheney-trashing movie "Vice" found a heavy promotion of the surprising six Golden Globe nominations it received from the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. The affirmation also became the "news hook" for press interviews with the director and the actors to weaponize it politically. Sadly for them, only actor Christian Bale won an award, for gaining 40 pounds and talking out of the side of his mouth like the Penguin in a Batman movie. This year's Golden Globes were refreshingly devoid of obnoxious left-wing fulminating -- except for Bale. He felt it appropriate to...

    Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) is firing back at Christian Bale after the actor said during a Golden Globes acceptance speech that Satan inspired him when he played her father, Dick Cheney. While accepting an award in the “Best Actor in a Motion Picture Musical or Comedy” category late Sunday, the “Vice” star said to laughs from the crowd, “Thank you to Satan for giving me inspiration on how to play this role.” A chuckling Bale also blasted Dick Cheney and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) as “charisma-free [expletive]” during his fiery remarks. After the awards ceremony, Liz Cheney, 52,...

    Bohemian Rhapsody surprised Hollywood by winning the top drama prize at the Golden Globes on Sunday night, but the film’s big honor quickly turned awkward and controversial. After cast and producers took the stage to accept the award for Best Motion Picture – Drama, producer Graham King notably didn’t mention the film’s director, Bryan Singer. Neither did star Rami Malek when he took home Best Actor in a Drama for his portrayal of Freddie Mercury. *SNIP* Singer was reportedly fired from Bohemian Rhapsody roughly two weeks before filming was completed amid reports of on-set turmoil yet retained his directing credit....

    Last night’s 76th Golden Globe Awards saw big surprises like Bohemian Rhapsody’s big win for Best Motion Picture, Drama, a big send off for FX’s The Americans, flu shots, a trio of victories for Green Book, some history made by co-host Sandra Oh and a Saturday Night Live alum mock marriage proposal. Clocking in at around three hours and twenty minutes and coming right after a NFL Wild Card playoff game that threatened to run long, the Killing Eve star and Andy Samberg fronted ceremony was a little bit more traditional than usual and never even mentioned Donald Trump once....

    Torrei Hart wanted to give the son she has with Kevin Hart some real life experience with firearms away from the television, so she took him to the gun range to squeeze off a few rounds. 10-year-old Hendrix went with his mom Monday afternoon to an L.A. gun range and practiced his pistol shooting. Torrei showed Hendrix all the safety precautions, including proper eye, ear protection and safe loading techniques. Torrei’s rep tells The Blast “We always go on mommy son dates and today I took him to the gun range. His favorite game is “Call of Duty” so I...

    Before Sony Pictures chair Amy Pascal attended a breakfast of Hollywood bigwigs last November with Barack Obama, she emailed her friend Scott Rudin for suggestions on what she should ask the president. In what has become the latest embarrassing email uncovered in a trove of messages leaked by hackers who attacked Sony, Pascal wrote Rudin: “What should I ask the president at this stupid Jeffrey breakfast?” She was referring to a breakfast hosted by DreamWorks Animation head and major Democratic donor Jeffrey Katzenberg. Rudin, a top film producer responsible for films like No Country for Old Men and Moneyball, responded,...

    NEW YORK (AP) — Just two days after being named host of the Academy Awards, Kevin Hart stepped down following an outcry over past homophobic tweets by the comedian. Capping a swift and dramatic fallout, Hart wrote on Twitter just after midnight Friday that he was withdrawing as Oscars host because he didn’t want to be a distraction. “I sincerely apologize to the LGBTQ community for my insensitive words from my past,” wrote Hart. Hart stepped aside just about an hour after refusing to apologize for tweets that resurfaced after he was announced as Oscars host on Tuesday. In a...

    While presenting at the 2018 MTV Video Music Awards, Kevin Hart told the audience they were "allowed to kneel" seemingly referencing how NFL players have been kneeling out of protest during the national anthem. "This game you're allowed to kneel," Hart said while presenting with fellow comedian Tiffany Haddish. He continued: "You can do whatever you want there's no old white men to stop you." Hart, 39, also said the award show was like "a typical day at the White House." “Beefs pop off, bad language, people run to the bathroom and send out crazy tweets,” Hart said. "It's basically...

Comedian Kevin Hart attempted to kick off a chain reaction of donations Monday with an Instagram video where he pledged $25,000 to the Red Cross and urged others to do the same. "I...

    Kevin Hart says he won’t play a gay character. The topic came up on Friday when the hosts of radio show, The Breakfast Club, asked the 35-year-old if he had any roles that he regretted missing. “The one role I regret—Tropic Thunder,” the Wedding Ringer star responded before admitting he had turned down the part because it was “real flagrant”. According to Kevin, he could have played the role of rapper-turned-actor Alpa Chino in the 2008 comedy, but he passed because the character, on script, was “real flagrant.” “I was like, ‘I can’t. I can’t do this,’” Kevin said of...

    More incriminating personal information was leaked Wednesday following the unprecedented Sony Pictures hack, this time in the form of emails between top producers and executives belittling a number of major stars and projects, and even making racist jokes about President Barack Obama. In one email exchange, Sony co-chairperson Amy Pascal -- a prominent Democratic party donor and Obama supporter -- asked movie producer Scott Rudin ahead of a fundraiser what she should ask the President "at this stupid Jeffrey (Katzenberg) breakfast," to which Rudin quipped "would he like to finance some movies."
