    Sterling K. Brown, Ava DuVernay and Jane Fonda are among thousands of people who signed an open letter calling on the entertainment industry for gender pay equality for production workers. “It’s time for the Entertainment Industry to take a hard look at its pay and compensation practices above and below the line to make sure all productions meet the legal — and moral — requirement to pay fairly without discrimination,” says the letter, which will be delivered to the heads of major studios, networks and production companies. Entertainment union IATSE hired Working IDEAL to evaluate the gender wage bias in...

    Far-left late-night host Jimmy Kimmel, who is currently one of the most polarizing and divisive personalities in the country, admitted he has seen polls that show that his partisanship “has cost me commercially.” “According to polls I’ve seen, it has cost me commercially,” he told Oprah Winfrey in an interview for her O Magazine. “That’s not ideal, but I wouldn’t change anything I said.” “I know my job is, for the most part, to entertain people and make them laugh. That said, if I can be selfish every once in a while and talk about something serious that’s important to...

    The folks behind the Academy Awards are starting to figure out that most Americans don’t want to hear left wing political lectures from movie stars. Ratings for other recent awards shows have been disastrous and they don’t want a repeat of that. The New York Times reported: In This #MeToo Moment, Academy Awards Want to Spotlight the Films “We want to make it as entertaining as possible — reverential and respectful but also fun and emotional,” said Jennifer Todd, one of the lead producers of the Academy Awards, which will be hosted for the second year in a row by...

    "I'm guessing successful sociopaths like him who get away with it for years are very, very careful not to let the kind of men who would stop them dead cold ever get a glimpse of who they really are," he wrote in a lengthy Facebook post. Michael Moore, who worked with Harvey Weinstein on his 2004 documentary Fahrenheit 9/11, is breaking his silence on the disgraced mogul since separate reports from the New York Times and The New Yorker broke, detailing allegations of sexual harassment and rape against him. Dozens of women have since come forward with similar claims. The...

    (Author's note: This is the original, unedited version of the article, though I continually update it with relevant material.) Actors and actresses and comedians and comediennes have exerted enormous influence over this society via TV and cinema. Assuming we should know more about the kind of people exerting that influence, the following. As will be shown, drug use, prostitution (i.e., trading sexual favors for movie roles), and mental illness are very common in Hollywood. Various entertainment writers have drawn attention to the widespread use of illegal drugs in Hollywood.

    How can Judd Apatow, once ranked the smartest guy in Hollywood be so . . . ? On today's With All Due Respect, big comedy macher [credits include Lena Dunham's Girls] Apatow said it was "ridiculous that anyone thinks that rich people care about other people. When the Koch brothers give a billion dollars, it is not out of a great concern for the masses." To his credit, Mark Halperin twice pressed Apatow as to whether his notion that rich donors don't care about other people also applies to rich Hollywood liberals. Apatow eventually asserted that there's a difference: "Hollywood...

    Dr. Oz showed this on his program recently. It's what the heart of a Democrat looks like after years of lies, corruption and treachery. Don't let it happen to you. If you ever thought there was any reality behind the stale script of Democrats being the 'party of the disadvantaged' and, as a topping to the sundae - the party that disdains greed and materialism, I hate to be the one to break it to you. It's pure fiction and pretty much always has been. I've written on this subject before, and as we go forward in examining the...

    Just how much do many Hollywood liberals hate conservatives? In an interview with Playboy, Ben Affleck said, "When I watch a guy [on film] I know is a big Republican, part of me thinks, I probably wouldn’t like this person if I met him": PLAYBOY: You developed a political profile campaigning for presidential candidates Al Gore, John Kerry and Barack Obama. How did that come about? AFFLECK: I grew up in a house with a mother who was a teacher and a Freedom Rider—very left-wing Democrats living in a heterogeneous working-class neighborhood. I picked up a lot of those values...

    ( - In the aftermath of the Family Research Council shooting, prominent voices on the Left have not tapped down their violent rhetoric against their opponents. Two Baby Boomer celebrities have taken to Twitter to hope pro-life, pro-family individuals and U.S. Congressman Todd Akin suffer a drowning or a same-sex rape, respectively. On Sunday, Ellen Barkin expressed her hope that Tropical Storm Isaac would smash up the Republican National Convention in Tampa and drown all its delegates. Â She retweeted the message of one of her followers that read: Come on Isaac! Wash every pro-life, anti-education, anti-woman, xenophobic, gay-bashing, racist...

    Actress and left-wing activist Susan Sarandon has claimed she was recently denied security clearance for a visit to the White House - and that the government has been tapping her phone. The Oscar winner, who has vehemently condemned the war in Iraq, made the claims on Sunday during a Q&A session at the Tribeca Film Festival - an 11-day event in New York's Lower Manhattan. One audience member asked whether Sarandon, who was answering questions alongside documentary filmmaker Michael Moore, believed she was under surveillance by the government. 'We know we're under surveillance,' Sarandon said: 'I’ve had my phone tapped.'...

    Actress, comedienne and now author Roseanne Barr shares her solution for dealing with the rich and how the banks could repay the money the U.S. government bailed them out with in 2008. "Part of my platform is, of course, the guilty must be punished and that we no longer let our children see their guilty leaders getting away with murder. Because it teaches children, you know, that they don't have to have any morals as long as they have guns and are bullies and I don't think that's a good message," Barr told Russia Today (RT). "I do say that...

    There may be an overtly political reason that moviegoers will be seeing the story of the Osama bin Laden raid just before they vote for president. Sony Pictures, the company distributing next year's film, hosted a fundraiser for Barack Obama on their studio's premises in California last April. So far, Sony is the only major studio to hold a political fundraiser this cycle. According to Deadline Hollywood, Sony will release the bin Laden movie, directed by Academy Award-winning director Kathryn Bigelow, on October 12, 2012--less than a month before the presidential election. "The eyebrow does go up when you see...

    Hollywood matters. It matters because we watch Hollywood product day in and day out. Your children spend six or seven hours at school, and couple of hours with their friends, and a couple of hours with you. They spend a full three hours with the television. You get home from work, kick off your shoes, and plop down in front of the TV, hoping simply to chill out. Instead, you get unmitigated liberalism pouring out of your TV. But you continue to watch because it’s great. It’s fun, thrilling, dramatic, or hilarious. We think it has no impact on us....

The 64-year-old crooner with a taste for trendy, lefty causes earlier this month rolled out grand plans for a 20-concert tour, her first in 10 years. But after taking a look at her ticket prices - including $5,000 deluxe packages - even Babs’ die-hard limousine liberal fans may be having second thoughts. And...

    The unreality of the weekly Hillary campaign commercial, putatively a TV series called "Commander in Chief" starring Geena Davis, enters Week 2, and Hollywood has made its choice: It's Hillary/Wesley Clark '08.As I noted in my column last week, the president’s VP choice is "General Warren Fitzgerald Keaton" (played by left-wing non-emoter Peter Coyote), a former Democratic VP candidate who was involved in the Balkan campaign. Davis says he "went to war and never lost a man" and "doesn't have a duplicitous bone in his body." In a flashback to the previous campaign -- with some unintentionally hilarious dialogue meant...

    Snore of the Worlds(Make Snore, Not War) Don't Forget Your NoDoz! War of the Worlds or Snore of the Worlds? By Michael D. Robbins, By producing a re-make of the War of the Worlds movie, the pacifist anti-war Hollywood elitists have contributed yet another cure for insomnia, as well as a "war" movie where the Americans fight but cannot kill the enemy. Instead, the Americans suffer heavy civilian casualties and significant property damage. Then, in an anti-climax ending, the alien enemy is killed off by an acceptable "nonviolent" means - disease due to lack of immunity to the...
