Sesame Street is now in the midst of its 45th season. By this point, the venerable program has had a positive influence on more children’s lives than breakfast. EW was lucky enough to have two of the Street’s kingpins—Cookie Monster and Elmo—drop by our studio and, just for fun, enact their own versions of shows like Sherlock, True Detective, Scandal, and House of Cards.
And they couldn’t have been nicer. (That is, once we made sure the dressing room had the requisite number of fresh-baked cookies specified in a certain someone’s contract rider.)
Elmo’s Frank Underwood voice is something we deeply needed to hear in order to complete our personal sense of self but just didn’t know it. Watch the video below. READ FULL STORY
Olivia Pope knows how to handle just about any situation in the White House, and the same rules apply to the world of fashion. If there’s a problem, Liv will fix it.
And now, Kerry Washington has teamed up with Scandal‘s costume designer, Lyn Paolo, and the head of design for The Limited, Elliot Staples, to create The Limited Collection Inspired by Scandal. Fans of the show will know what to expect: Lots of white, lots of jackets, and more than one pair of gloves. But the question remains: Will there be a fashionable (though slightly oversized) white hat in the mix?
This fall, Scandal fans can come one step closer to becoming Olivia Pope. On September 22, a Scandal-inspired fall fashion line that “embodies the elegance and power of the Scandal aesthetic,” will debut in The Limited clothing stores. Kerry Washington, who portrays D.C. political fixer Olivia Pope, developed the collection with Scandal‘s costume designer Lyn Paolo, and the debut will mark the first time a national retailer has collaborated with the star and costume designer of a top-rated television show on a fashion line.
“The collection is a nod to our devoted fans, to fans of fashion and to women everywhere who are inspired to boldly pursue their passions and look good while doing it,” Washington said in a statement. Paolo added, “We believe the collection tells a story of confidence and professional sophistication as well as maintaining a strong feminine point of view.” READ FULL STORY
Score one for Drunk Mellie.
Scandal actress Bellamy Young, who portrays First Lady Mellie Grant on ABC’s crazy hit drama, was scheduled to appear on Los Angeles’ KTLA earlier today. Because the Critics’ Choice nominations had just been announced, the anchors asked Young to help them out with reading the names on air — briefly hiding from her that she herself had been nominated as well.
When they reveal that she also scored a nod, she’s obviously overwhelmed and thrilled. And this reaction is way better than the “Oh, I even forgot nominations were happening today!” response that celebs are so fond of. Watch below: READ FULL STORY
Shonda Rhimes is known for a lot of things. She’s the woman behind some of television’s most shocking twists. She’s an expert at season finales. And perhaps more than anything, she — and her writers — knows what it takes to make a speech go from good to great. Specifically, nobody knows how to say “I love you” like she does. This is the woman who invented McDreamy, after all.
And with last week’s Cristina-Burke reunion on Grey’s Anatomy, we were reminded of just how great those love confessions could be. So in honor of that moment and all the ones we’ve yet to experience, we’ve ranked ShondaLand’s 20 most romantic speeches from Grey’s Anatomy and Scandal. (Sorry, Private Practice fans. This list is current shows only.) Enjoy: READ FULL STORY
If that desk could talk, well, it would have some very scandalous — for lack of a better word — stories. But what about this other desk: READ FULL STORY
An Academy Award can mean many things, but it’s never the solution to a problem. That reminder landed brutally in late April, when Lupita Nyong’o, the actress whose Oscar for 12 Years a Slave was the Cinderella story of this year’s ceremony, entered final talks for her first major post-prize gig. She’ll be playing the mother wolf in a remake of The Jungle Book.
You read that right. Hollywood is handed a beautiful, talented, Yale School of Drama-trained actress of color, and what does it come up with? Well, let’s see…she could be an animal. In the Third World. READ FULL STORY
Bryan Singer, director of the X-Men franchise, was recently accused of sexual abuse. American Psycho writer Bret Easton Ellis has something to say about the claims — and he’s not quite making a case for Singer’s innocence.
In a podcast with Alan Ball, Ellis brought up the allegations against Singer, saying that it’s common to find underage boys at Hollywood parties. “There is the notion that Hollywood, by its very nature, kind of encourages this behavior in a way,” Ellis says, before recalling a time he was invited to what he calls one of Singer’s “underage parties.”
