    Industry pros, entertainers and civilians assembled by the hundreds today for United Talent Agency’s “United Voices” rally outside the company’s Beverly Hills headquarters. Among the featured speakers at the event protesting Trump administration immigration policies was Oscar-winner Jodie Foster, who told the crowd that “it’s time to engage.” “As the very, very dead Frederick Douglass one said, ‘Anytime is a good time for illumination,'” Foster said. “And this is the time for illumination. I believe this time is filled with light.” UTA canceled its annual Oscars bash and organized the event after Donald Trump issued an executive order temporarily banning...

    A Baltimore Orioles executive says he'd prefer President Trump not throw out a first pitch at Camden Yards without first apologizing for statements that could be viewed as problematic "from a race, ethnicity, religious, gender, disability" standpoint.   John Angelos, son of owner Peter Angelos and the Orioles' executive vice president and chief operating officer, said on a Baltimore-based podcast that divisive rhetoric and actions during Trump's campaign and since his swearing-in require that the president re-double efforts to embrace all members of the community.
  • Host Jimmy Kimmel says this year's Oscars could get political

    “This is not a prank,” Jimmy Kimmel tweeted in December. “Yes, I am hosting the Oscars.” Sunday night’s show, airing on ABC, is Kimmel’s third time on the big awards stage, after hosting the Emmys last year and in 2012. Although Kimmel is typically an entertaining host, this year’s Oscars could be a low-rated show. A poll by the Hollywood Reporter found that 60 percent of Americans couldn’t name one best picture nominee. For the record, the eight nominated movies are “Fences,” “Hacksaw Ridge,” “Hell or High Water,” “Hidden Figures,” “La La Land,” “Lion,” “Manchester by the Sea” and “Moonlight.”...

    Actor Bradley Whitford did not hold back in his response to Ivanka Trump's call for "religious tolerance." The actor, best known for his "West Wing" role, slammed President Donald Trump, calling him a "racist" while also tweeting that Ivanka and her husband Jared Kushner enable hatred. "Your father is a racist birther. Steve Bannon an anti-Semitic opportunist," Whitford tweeted. "You and your husband are enabling hatred." He also added, "F--k your shoes," referring to Ivanka Trump's clothing and accessories lines.
  • A Speech to Denounce Meryl Streep

    Actress Meryl Streep isn't just denouncing the dire state of America at Hollywood awards shows. She's now taking her speech to far-left events, recently accepting the Ally Award from the LGBTQ political-correctness police at the Human Rights Campaign. Since so many Americans will never get to stand on an awards show stage and speak their mind about what's wrong with the world, we thought we'd present a speech responding to Streep and what she represents. "It is such an opportunity to present our thoughts on behalf of the broad swath of America that didn't earn the right to offer grand...

    WLS-Channel 7 has slapped sports anchor Mark Giangreco with a multi-week suspension for a tweet in which he called President Donald Trump a “cartoon lunatic” and referred to Trump voters as “simpletons.” Management of the top-rated ABC-owned station released the following statement Thursday: “Mark Giangreco’s Twitter comments are not in line with ABC 7 Chicago’s non-partisan editorial standards. We’ve reviewed the matter and are taking the appropriate action.” An ABC 7 spokeswoman would not elaborate on the action. Sources said Giangreco would be suspended without pay for “multiple weeks,” starting Monday. Reached Thursday, Giangreco declined to comment. His agent, Joel...

    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...

    Just so you know, I voted for Hillary (Clinton). But when you think about it’s only been two weeks right? Or even less (someone interrupts to say it’s been 10 days). We’ve got to attack this issue here. So basically, I think that when you think about all the negativity that’s happened within a 10-day period, however many days it’s been, it’s already too much. It’s already crazy. It’s already affecting people’s hearts and souls and lives in such a negative way, in my opinion. Coupling that insightful analysis with the political prognostication for which he is absolutely not known,...

    Hidden Figures was the surprise winner of the top prize at this year's Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Awards, which was dominated by anger over Donald Trump's policies on immigration. The film, which tells the true story of black female mathematicians during the 1960s space race, won the best ensemble prize at the Los Angeles ceremony. Denzel Washington was named best actor for Fences. Several winners attacked Mr Trump's ban on immigration from seven countries. The tone was set by host Ashton Kutcher, who began the evening by greeting "everyone at home and everyone in airports that belong in my America"....

    When Lady Gaga hits the Super Bowl stage, at least one subject will be off limits: Politics. A source close to the halftime show tells ET, "Lady Gaga was told by the NFL that she cannot say anything or bring anything up about the election, or mention Donald Trump." A rep for the NFL calls this "nonsense from people trying to stir up controversy where there is none." "The Super Bowl is a time when people really come together," the NFL's statement continues. "Lady Gaga is focused on putting together an amazing show for fans and we love working with...

    Barbra Streisand is standing with Meryl Streep, who used her acceptance speech at Sunday's Golden Globe Awards to criticize Donald Trump for lacking empathy and infamously mocking a disabled reporter in 2015. 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...

    Meryl Streep, one of the most over-rated actresses in Hollywood, doesn't know me but attacked last night at the Golden Globes. She is a Hillary flunky who lost big. For the 100th time, I never "mocked" a disabled reporter (would never do that) but simply showed him "groveling" when he totally changed a 16 year old story that he had written in order to make me look bad. Just more very dishonest media!
