Glenn Close says Gwyneth Paltrow’s Academy Award win for 1998’s Shakespeare in Love “doesn’t make sense.” The Miramax movie ended up taking the Best Picture award home that evening too, which has been debated for over 20 years now. The comedy was the first in the genre since Annie Hall (1977) to win Best Picture and many believe that it should have gone to Saving Private Ryan.

In a new interview, Glenn Close talked about being recognized for her acting work over the years. “I honestly feel that to be nominated by your peers is about as good as it gets,” Close says. However, she does see some faults in the award ceremonies and how they are structured. You can read what Close had to say below.

Perry shared a commercial for his Nothing But American line while acknowledging that she and her preacher father have been at odds over the years.

Perhaps she thought it was extending the same sort of olive branch her father Keith appeared to be extending in his promotional video by sharing to her Instagram page, but Katy Perry immediately came under fire from her own fans.

This despite the fact that Perry’s conservative father was specifically promoting a new product line under his Nothing But American brand that was seeking very pointedly and specifically to be non-partisan.

Sporting a t-shirt he designed himself that mimicked a typical ballot entry, the t-shirt has the Republican elephant and Democrat donkey with no checkmarks next to them, followed by an American flag that’s been checked.

His message, as he states in the video is that “no matter what you believe, at the end of … Read more

We know what you are thinking, “The Mandalorian is a part of the Star Wars franchise, so of course it is going to mention characters from its wider universe!” True, but when it comes to the latest episode of the Disney+ series, titled the Jedi, it includes some rather subtle callouts to the Jedi-turned-Sith-Lord, Anakin Skywalker that only hardcore Star Wars fans could have decoded.&#160

For weeks, The Mandalorian Season 2 and Disney+ have teased Ahsoka Tano’s imminent arrival in their own ways and while her introduction in episode 5 couldn’t have been more perfect, that’s not all the plot offers. While there are many Easter Eggs and references setting the stage for more animated Star Wars characters to make their live-action debut, the episode also continues to drop callouts to Anakin Skywalker a.k.a.

“It will always be Baby Yoda for me,” a fan wrote.

“The Mandalorian” has revealed Baby Yoda’s real name — and not everyone is loving it.

During Friday’s episode of “The Mandalorian,” titled “Chapter 13: The Jedi,” Din Djarin (Pedro Pascal) and The Child, aka Baby Yoda, traveled to the forest planet Corvus to find Jedi Ahsoka Tano (Rosario Dawson), who, after reading his thoughts, recalled Baby Yoda’s backstory and revealed that his real name is Grogu.
