    Actor Shia LaBeouf is taking his controversial anti-President Trump art installation across the pond, claiming America isn’t “safe enough” for his work. The “He Will Not Divide Us” webcam exhibit has been adopted by the Liverpool-based Foundation for Art and Creative Technology, the group said Tuesday.

    Tim Allen opened up briefly about what it means to be a conservative in Hollywood in 2017 during an interview with late-night host Jimmy Kimmel Thursday night, explaining that one must be “real careful” in talking about President Donald Trump or else risk being beaten up. “You’ve gotta be real careful around here. You get beat up if you don’t believe what everybody believes,” the 63-year-old Last Man Standing star told Kimmel when asked about his attendance at Trump’s inauguration in January. “This is like ’30s Germany. I don’t know what happened,” he added. “If you’re not part of the...

    Just as the liberal "news" media have doubled down on fierce liberal activism since President Trump's inauguration, Hollywood is pushing the leftist agenda. Variety celebrates the crusade -- that is what this is -- in an article headlined "TV Gets Woke: How Scripted Series Are Confronting Social Issues Like Never Before." It is not that Hollywood should be political; it is that the industry must be political. Even the sitcoms need to be political. "Social media is in a constant conversation about things," proclaimed NBC Entertainment President Jennifer Salke. "It doesn't feel authentic to not address what's going on in...

    Angelina Jolie has made a strong defense of the United Nations, saying the world body, as “imperfect” as it is, needs reform but also support. The American actress and special envoy for the U.N. refugee agency decried a “rising tide of nationalism masquerading as populism, and the re-emergence of policies encouraging fear and hatred of others” during a speech at the U.N. in Geneva on Wednesday. Saying she was speaking as a “proud American” and “an internationalist,” Jolie said some politicians were elected “partly on the basis of dismissing international institutions and agreements.”

    In the original Aladdin cartoon it is quite clear that Jafar is gay but this is portrayed in a negative way. His mannerisms and flamboyance used to characterize him as Other. I think it would be wonderful if his Homosexuality was embraced and acknowledged as something to be proud of and not despised or reviled as villainous. It would do so much to encourage young gay and trans kids whom have watched the original and will watch the live action film, and were/are made to feel like they have more in common with the bad ones( evil villain) because of...

    Imagine the result, with hundreds of millions of people watching worldwide, if Hollywood turned its creative firepower on real problems. Instead, viewers watched wall-to-wall Trump-bashing. They should have spent less time bashing Trump and more time making the sure presenters got the correct envelopes. If so, the Oscar gaffe of the century -- reading the wrong name for Best Picture -- might have been avoided. Also, during the "In Memoriam" portion of the night, they put up picture of a very much alive producer instead of the costume designer who died last October. The broadcast's ratings were the second-lowest in...

    It is a moment that MacLaine said she is still trying to cope with days later. 'I think we’re all processing the horror of it. I’m still dealing with it,' MacLaine said in an interview with USA Today. 'I’m concerned with how [Beatty] must have felt, being so close to him. I’m three years older and I’m protective. We know how difficult it was for him, but it was also for me.' Cameras captured the moment the Moonlight cast and crew learned of their win, and MacLaine could be seen in the background gasping, covering her mouth in shock and...

    Shortened title. Full title: Exclusive — President Trump: Oscars ‘Were Focused so Hard on Politics’ They Could Not Get the Basics of the Ceremony Right President Donald Trump, in an exclusive interview with Breitbart News in the Oval Office, said that the Academy Awards failure on Sunday evening was due in large part to Hollywood’s obsessive focus on politics—attacking him, generally speaking. Trump told Breitbart News in the exclusive interview that the Oscar fail may have been avoided had Hollywood’s finest focused less on attacking him and more on getting the event’s details right.

    Last year the Academy, liberal to the CORE, was attacked with "Oscars so White"...a pathetic excuse for people with no life to get worked up.... The call for affirmative action on the voters, etc. in Hollyweird was heard. Changes were promised. So THIS year, a director's first movie, about a black homosexual, WINS. Look, maybe it WAS the Best Picture of all last year. Maybe. But could this be the effect of Hollywood's Guilty Feelings from last year?

    Bets are good that the Obama family will be watching the Oscar telecast on Feb. 26 considering what avid movie fans they are. Now that he’s gone from office, Hollywood insiders reveal the Obama White House constantly asked for access to new releases. Hollywood has a long tradition of providing films to the White House, where there’s a posh screening room. “There was never a film they didn’t request to watch,” says an executive at one studio. President Obama’s office also routinely requested awards screeners (including La La Land and other current Oscar contenders). Another source says an ask even...

    Tonight, after strolling down the red carpet and preening for the bulb-popping paparazzi, the kings and queens of Hollywood will honor their fans with many tedious televised hours of congratulating and awarding themselves. As winning actors and actresses grab their Oscars,they will likely take turns upbraiding Mr. Trump as both racist and sexist. Don’t dismiss the charges cavalierly, though — especially sexism. Remember the Access Hollywood audiotape wherein Trump was heard boasting he had grabbed women where you’re not supposed to grab anyone? Sure, one can hope Trump was just talking like a sexual predator, not actually planning to behave...

    What might Meryl Streep wear to the Oscars? Cross Chanel off the list. It seems that Streep was quite taken with an embroidered gray silk gown from Karl Lagerfeld’s most recent couture collection for the house. The dress was ordered, with Streep requesting an adjustment to the design — a higher neckline. Done. Such personalization is what couture is all about, along with exquisite execution, and, in the case of Chanel, Lagerfeld’s design brilliance. What more could the world’s greatest living actress want for Hollywood’s biggest night? Turns out, she wants a paycheck. With work on the dress well underway...

    Hollywood stars wanting to remove their ages from IMDb will have to wait until the website resolves its legal battle with the state of California after a federal judge on Wednesday granted an injunction staying enforcement of a new law that would force the site to take down that information upon request. The law is meant to prevent age discrimination in a youth-obsessed industry, but it has been widely criticized as a restraint on free speech. U.S. District Judge Vince Chhabria unequivocally shared that concern in an opinion filed Wednesday. "[I]t's difficult to imagine how AB 1687 could not violate...

    Scarlett Johansson is having second thoughts on monogamy. In Playboy's March/April 2017 issue, the 32-year-old “Ghost in the Shell” star admitted that she isn’t sure people are designed to be monogamous in relationships. “I think the idea of marriage is very romantic; it’s a beautiful idea, and the practice of it can be a very beautiful thing,” said the actress. “I don’t think it’s natural to be a monogamous person. I might be skewered for that, but I think it’s work. It’s a lot of work.” …

The geniuses in Hollywood clearly have their fingers on Americans’ collective pulse, if you define “Americans” as everyone in a coastal megalopolis who lives within 50 yards of a cruelty-free organic coffee shop.Take 24: Legacy, the new...

    During the presidential campaign, several dozen brainless Hollywood stars were so upset at Donald Trump that they promised to leave the country if he won. Well we are still waiting for them to do everyone a favor and exit stage left. Of course, they lied and continue to pollute the airwaves here in America. Now that it is awards season for the movie industry, it has been non-stop criticism of our new President. At the Golden Globes Awards, Meryl Streep blasted President Trump for his supposedly hateful gesturing about a disabled reporter during the campaign. Never mind that the...

    —On a crisp November evening three weeks after the election, about 600 local activists gathered on a sound stage at the old Mack Sennett studios in Silver Lake where nearly a century ago the Keystone Cops slipped on banana peels and dodged pies in the face. The crowd, which quickly overflowed the available seats and sat on the bare floor, had been convened by Beau Willimon, the creator of the Netflix series “House of Cards,” and a still-idealistic veteran of Howard Dean’s insurgent 2004 presidential campaign. As Willimon took the microphone, a gray scrim hanging behind him bore the projected...
