'People' names Kate Upton 'Sexiest Woman Alive'

Usually it’s just the men who get all the attention when People‘s “Sexiest Alive” announcement rolls around each year, but now the magazine is adding ladies to the mix: People named model Kate Upton the “Sexiest Woman Alive” at Thursday’s inaugural People Magazine Awards.

Upton’s best known for her work modeling for Sports Illustrated – she covered the magazine’s 2012 swimsuit issue — but she’s also spent some time on the big screen, most recently in this year’s The Other Woman

Eric Dane of Grey’s Anatomy and The Last Ship fame introduced Upton, who boarded the stage to give her own definition of what “sexy” means to her: “Sexy to me means somebody who’s confident and happy and that’s the person I always strive to be,” she said. “Thanks to my fans. I’m so, so sorry to my 18-year-old brother. Poor David.” READ FULL STORY

'Arrow', 'Walking Dead', and more earn TV mid-season finale awards

It’s officially that time of year when all your shows are on hiatus—leaving you to ponder (and possibly re-watch) their fall finales for the next month of your life. In other words, your holidays will be plagued with thoughts like these: “Where is Olivia Pope?” “Is Oliver Queen really dead?” “What’s going to happen to Cary Agos?”

Before you get too deep into the “what does it all mean” portion of the coping process, let’s acknowledge some of the best and worst moments that 2014’s mid-season finales had to offer. To do that, we’ve handed out a few (figurative) awards for the hours that will stick with us through the holidays:

Chelsea Peretti started her stand-up career by telling fart jokes

Chelsea Peretti has some advice for aspiring stand-up comedians: Stage time, stage time, stage time, stage time — oh, and stage time. And yes, she realizes how irritating repeating “stage time” is.

Peretti currently stars as Gina on Fox’s Brooklyn Nine-Nine and just released a stand-up special on Netflix titled Chelsea Peretti: One of the Greatsbut, just like any of the greats, Peretti had to get her start somewhere — and that start was on a stage where she made poorly received jokes about the always-popular subject of crop dusting.

Along the way, Peretti’s looked to people like Amy Poehler, Parker Posey, and Sarah Silverman for inspiration, and right now is watching up-and-coming comedians like Yassir Lester and Esther Povitsky. 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.

James Corden throws to first commercial on 'Late Late Show'

There are a few absolutes in late-night talk show hosting: monologues, silly sketches, guest interviews, and having to keep audiences coming back after each one.

Future host James Corden had his chance to prove his skills on at least one of those when he appeared on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson.

What to expect from the season 5 'Sing-Off' groups: A very careful aca-sessment

The first time I heard that The Sing-Off was going to be limited to a one-night special this year, I went through some pretty serious turmoil. All five stages of grief passed through in a matter of minutes: Denial that the entirety of season 5 could potentially only include one Nick Lachey jewel tone button-down; Anger that NBC was doing this to us; Bargaining that we might somehow lure Ben Folds back in a judge’s chair with a Warby Parker gift basket of sorts; Depression that Home Free would be unceremoniously replaced as the reigning champs in just two short hours; and finally, Acceptance that while we would only be getting six a cappella groups this year, it was possible they’d be the best groups yet. I mean, not better than Pentatonix, but like, probably really good.

But then, I bucked up. We’re still in for a grand ol’ time, I just know it . Because by this point, the best little singing show that could has made a holiday tradition of avoiding cancellation by any air schedule necessary, and if they can handle the frequent changes, then so can we. No, I don’t want to consider a world where Nick Lachey can’t exchange music puns with the now departed Ben Folds (so help me Patrick Stump, if you don’t know what an appoggiatura is…). No, I don’t understand how they’ll roll out multiple rounds of competition in two hours. But what is a cappella if not a stripping away of the musical fat? READ FULL STORY

Ian McKellen tries to help Cookie Monster resist cookies-it doesn't go too well

Maybe Ian McKellen should have brought his lesson about the word “resist” to Middle-earth before he delivered it to Cookie Monster.

Lena Dunham won the red carpet this year (by losing it)

It’s been 13 years since Björk laid an egg at the Academy Awards. And if the Oscars’, Emmys’, and Golden Globes’ red carpets are the Triple Crown of Thoroughbred Gowns, that’s nearly 40 nights of appropriate and borrowed, jewel-toned and fish-tailed, corporate-sponsored parade floats accessorized with diamonds, security guards, and phonetically spelled designer names for E! Entertainment’s “mani cam” (MOH-neek Luh-HOO-lee-ay).

As award show arrivals have morphed into a shameless interstate billboard—stars can earn a cool million for their jewelry choices alone—red carpet fashion has in turn become a bland gated community filled with highly rehearsed Vanna Whites pretending they actually picked out their clothes. Nominees always look so…nice.

Then Lena Dunham arrived at the Emmys. READ FULL STORY
