PopWatch Confessional: Your best entertainment-related gift

It’s beginning to look a lot like gift-mas around EW’s headquarters—which is why we decided to devote this week’s PopWatch Confessional to the real reason for the season (read: presents). The question posed to our staffers: What’s the best pop culture-related gift you’ve ever received?

Molly Smith, editorial assistant: My friend is an artist, and one of our favorite movies is Step Brothers. She painted me a portrait of the Step Brothers cover, but replaced Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly with James Blunt and Clay Aiken, artists we poke fun at occasionally. (The painting is pictured above.) It’s certainly a conversation starter! READ FULL STORY

People Magazine Awards: The night's best moments

Mindy Kaling and Chris Messina made sure to make their acceptance speech at Thursday’s People Magazine Awards memorable: The duo received the award for “TV Couple of the Year” and used their time onstage as an opportunity to share a steamy moment, one that surely satisfied Mindy Project fans who are missing the show after its fall finale.

The People Magazine Awards, hosted by Nick Cannon, awarded stars for their work in TV and movies. The show featured performances by hit-makers like Gwen Stefani and Maroon 5, but the real highlights included that Mindy-Messina moment, Jon Hamm’s attempts at airport humor, and Michael Keaton’s mention of who he’s planning to go home and kiss. (Hint: It’s not a person.). READ FULL STORY

Lady Gaga recalls some good advice she got from a stripper

Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett have a few things in common: musical talent, the album they just made together, and their appearance on The Tonight Show last night, to name a few. But there are other areas where the two of them are very different.

For example, when Jimmy Fallon brought up that one time Bennett took advice from a cab driver in New York, he then asked Gaga if she’d ever taken advice from a stranger. She had. Only she got her advice from an elderly stripper in Atlanta. As you do.

Justin Timberlake, Jimmy Fallon go to summer camp on 'Tonight Show'

Justin Timberlake and Jimmy Fallon donned wigs and braces for a Tuesday Tonight Show sketch that involved the two acting like teenage boys who just can’t stop singing Third Eye Blind’s “Jumper“—even despite their counselor’s pleas to stop.

The two have performed the “Camp Winnipesaukee” sketch before, with previous versions featuring Timberlake and Fallon belting out fellow throwback hits Toto’s “Africa” and Hootie and the Blowfish’s “Only Wanna Be With You.” READ FULL STORY

Woody Allen riffs on his early comedy career in 'The Stand Up Years' -- exclusive

Bryan Singer, FKA Twigs, one unforgettable cat: 12 things we didn't talk about enough in 2014

13-THINGS-2014.jpg

As a populace, we already know what we talked about too much in 2014: Taylor Swift’s music industry takeover; Matthew McConaughey’s ascent from beefy rom-com star to prestige actor; the nude-photo theft that launched a million thinkpieces about consent, privacy, sexism, and celebrity; Ben Affleck’s junk.

But for every overhyped idea, there’s a corresponding underhyped one—a would-have-been national conversation that didn’t materialize, an important work that deserved more appreciation, or a would-be breakout star like Sam Smith or Lupita Nyong’o who never quite managed to yank the spotlight away from the real Sam Smith or Lupita Nyong’o. According to EW staffers, this year, we didn’t talk nearly enough about… READ FULL STORY
