see the full list here), everyone has their favorites. In the movies category, I’m pulling for James Franco. (Sorry, Colin Firth, still love you!) As adventure seeker Aron Ralston in 127 Hours, Franco found himself alone on screen for much of the movie, and yet, it was just as compelling as an ensemble of impressive actors (See: The Kids Are All Right). And I need not go into detail about the gritty arm amputation scene, which was as gripping as it was utterly disgusting, in the best possible way.

Tag: Modern Family (81-90 of 173)
Nathan Lane will return to Modern Family this spring as the brunch-munching, ascot-donning power-gay Pepper Saltzman. Although he had precious few minutes of screen time in his first appearance earlier this season, Pepper really shook things up: Mitch and Cam trashed their own house and Cam declared his love for Pepper, all to get out of going to one of his ridiculous — but fabulous-sounding! — theme brunches. (“Oscar Wilde-N’-Crazy Brunch” — where’s our invite?)He’s back! According to executive producer Steve Levitan,
Apparently, Mitch and Cam have a change of heart later in the season, and we get to see them attend one of these parties in action. Hopefully Pepper didn’t learn his lesson and will come up with a theme that inspires over-the-top, high-effort costumes. Who wouldn’t want to see Cam dressed as Mario Antoinette?
What should the theme of Pepper’s party be? Are you looking forward to Nathan Lane’s return? Do you think he’s rehashing Albert from The Birdcage? Sound off in the comments below!
‘Modern Family’ recap: Shortcomings
this cast breakdown that made the rounds this week that compared Alex to the great Darlene Conner, one thing became clear: Alex is the new torch-bearer in the noble tradition of middle daughters on sitcoms. READ FULL STORY »This week’s Modern Family featured a subplot about middle-child Alex slavishly studying for a test. It’s not the first time we’ve seen Alex go into geek mode, but between her nerdery and
'Dancing With the Stars': Could Bristol Palin actually win?!? TV Insiders look into disco-crystal ball on podcast
Bristol Palin may look like she doesn’t even want to be there half the time, but apparently lots of other people must want her on Dancing With the Stars, because the “teen activist” keeps on surviving week after week when other, clearly better dancers are shows the door. Which leads to many questions: How is this happening? Are fans of her politician mother voting along party lines for daughter Palin in droves? And could Bristol actually … gulp … win? Annie Barrett and Michael Slezak join me on the always non-partisan TV Insiders podcast to break it all down while also examining the big verbal dust-up between sassy Maks and sometimes lucid Carrie Ann. Plus: Someone admits to actually liking Survivor: Nicaragua‘s NaOnka, we grade the first week of Conan O’Brien’s new TBS talk show, and give our picks for the funniest Modern Family cast member.

Modern Family‘s Julie Bowen felt pressure to perform as one of Conan‘s first week guests, and we think it’s safe to say she produced. Watch their chat below. Conan starts by thanking her for not wearing pants. “It’s so great to be on television again,” he said. Then, Bowen insults fellow guest Michael Cera a couple times before admitting that she met him at an event when he was 14, walked up to him and said “I love you” in what she thought was a cool way, and he looked at her like she was old and decrepit. She saved the best story, about her twin 18-month-old boys, for last: She was doing laundry one day, turned her back, and, “The smart one had gotten the fat cute one in the dryer.” Naturally, Conan gives her grief for not having learned her children’s names and for her first instinct being to run to get her camera and take a photo. “You get fatty out!” Hilarious. This is how a talk show appearance is done.
P.S. The way she told that story, there is no one who could play Claire better than her. And it’s a shame Fatty (Gustav) and Smarty (John) aren’t a little older. They could’ve wreaked havoc as Lily’s preschool classmates. READ FULL STORY »
