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...

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.

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...

    —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...

    Meryl Streep has played many roles in her long career and holds the record for the most Academy Award nominations of any actor. Among her portrayals was British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher. At the Golden Globe Awards Sunday night, Streep behaved as if she actually had been elected to high office, entitling her to mount a high horse. In a six-minute, post-election diatribe, Streep slammed president-elect Donald Trump, urging journalists to hold him accountable. Given the media's poor job of holding the current president accountable, Streep's call to arms seems like an invitation to a one-way street. Accountability is one...

A day after Streep delivered her blistering rebuke of the president-elect, Streisand called in to Hardball With Chris Matthews and expressed her solidarity. I thought that [Streep] said what she said beautifully, Streisand remarked. Regarding Trump's ridiculing of journalist Serge F. Kovaleski 14 months ago, Streisand added, I completely agree with Meryl. It was a heartbreaking moment and so beneath the dignity of the presidency, let alone any...

    EDITOR’S NOTE: The following is an excerpt from the new book, Planes, Steak & Water: Defending Donald J. Trump by Autry J. Pruitt.It’s clear that the left’s arguments pointing out Donald Trump’s alleged sexism are purely political otherwise Bill Clinton would have been crucified as a sexist, and Hillary Clinton pilloried for attacking women who are victims. The arguments about Donald Trump being sexist are a broader part of the narrative that various news outlets attempt to create. If they can keep Republicans labeled as sexist overall, then they have achieved their goal. (After all, in many ways Trump...

    The Washington Post is unsurprisingly in love with the new Obama-puffing film about Barack and Michelle’s first date. Movie critic Ann Hornaday won the prize for the biggest gush, comparing Obama to young Abe Lincoln: Like the warm summer day it chronicles, Southside With You possesses a mellow, languorous vibe, an infectious easygoing charm that insinuates itself gently, then seductively, as the couple at its center experiences the stirrings of what might be true love. That the two young people in question are named Barack Obama and Michelle Robinson almost feels like an afterthought in Richard Tanne’s modest but enormously...

    Comedian and actress Amy Schumer absurdly claimed if only she kept her “mouth shut” about her “real feelings about politics or gun violence” that “career-wise” it “would be financially better for me, but I don’t care.” This is coming from someone who currently can be seen all over your TV in a national ad campaign for Bud Light, which even includes a commercial that spouted progressive talking points. The star of Comedy Central’s Inside Amy Schumer and last summer’s box office hit Trainwreck came on Friday’s edition of PBS’s Charlie Rose show to promote her new book The Girl With...

    <p>HBO's Last Week Tonight host John Oliver pitches a new idea to Donald Trump: Avoid losing to Hillary Clinton by dropping out of the race for president now.</p> <p>“You’re either going to win or you’re going to lose, and I think both those scenarios end pretty badly for you,” Oliver told the GOP presidential nominee on his HBO series Sunday. “I would like to propose to you a third option and that is, drop out. Simply drop out and tell America this entire candidacy was a stunt.”</p>

"On a golf course in Martha's Vineyard instead of in Louisiana?," she tweeted, along with a Fox News video flashback of Obama criticizing President Bush in 2008 for his response to Hurricane Katrina.
  • Mike Rowe: Celebrities Only Encourage Their Fans To Vote So Liberals Will Get Elected

    “Every four years, celebrities and movie stars look earnestly into the camera and tell the country to ‘get out and vote.’ They tell us it’s our ‘most important civic duty,’ and they speak as if the very act of casting a ballot is more important than the outcome of the election. This strikes me as somewhat hysterical. Does anyone actually believe that Leonardo DiCaprio, Ellen DeGeneres, and Ed Norton would encourage the ‘masses’ to vote, if they believed the ‘masses’ would elect Donald Trump?”

  • Johnny Depp mutilated himself in jealous rage over Amber Heard

    A grisly photo shows Johnny Depp’s hand with the tip of one bloody finger missing after he mutilated himself during a jealous rage over suspicions that much-younger wife Amber Heard was cheating on him with a rival actor, according to a new report Monday. The “Pirates of the Caribbean” star also dipped his bloody stump in blue paint and used it to scrawl the names of Heard and her suspected paramour, Billy Bob Thornton, on a mirror, according to TMZ. The image of Depp’s bloody and disfigured digit was posted under a police-tape-style caution saying “WARNING: GRUESOME PHOTO,” and can...

    How the media decides an election My issue here is with Reuters, not with De Niro. I don’t agree with De Niro, but if he wants to say what he thinks, hey. Knock yourself out, Bobby. You have as much right as me or anyone else. Nor do I care that he did it at an event that was supposed to be all about film awards and not politics. Whatever. It’s on your mind, say it. Be who you are. The news judgment of Reuters is another matter entirely. I don’t care how much of a A-list star De Niro...
