PopWatch PSA: You really need to watch Judith Light snort cocaine on 'Dallas' -- VIDEO

TNT’s Dallas is gunning for more watercooler moments in its third season, and scene-stealer Judith Light, who recurs as sharp-tongued matriarch Judith Ryland, certainly provided one in Monday’s episode (read our full recap). You’re going to want to watch it below.

The backstory for those who haven’t been tuning in: Judith Ryland made her triumphant return in the hour after her son, Harris (Mitch Pileggi) — the bastard ex-husband of Bobby Ewing’s wife Ann, with whom Harris shares a conniving daughter — pushed her down the stairs and locked her away in a “rehab” facility in season 2. She insisted upon taking back control of the family transport company, which she’d just learned was muling cocaine for a Mexican cartel. She also wanted to renegotiate the terms of that arrangement: “I made my bones dealing with psychopaths and criminals while you were still playing with your Easy Bake Oven,” she hissed to Harris. Together they went to Nuevo Laredo, where mama not only liked the idea of the cartel honcho frisking her for a wire but also the concept of product-testing.  READ FULL STORY

Aaron Paul hosts 'WWE Monday Night Raw,' and it is as glorious as you'd expect -- VIDEO

Breaking Bad‘s Aaron Paul, who is now promoting the March 14 big-screen release of his movie Need for Speed, guest-hosted WWE Monday Night Raw last night in Chicago. And honestly, he looked as happy as he did at his wedding — which is why we love him.

Watch the video below to see Paul make his entrance behind the wheel of his Need for Speed Mustang with WWE superstar Dolph Ziggler, stand on the ropes to hype the crowd, and then stand on the commentators’ table to taunt Ziggler’s opponent, Alberto Del Rio. (We assume if he’d called him “bitch!” it would have made the highlight reel.) READ FULL STORY

Idina Menzel sings 'Let It Go' with Jimmy Fallon and classroom instruments -- VIDEO

Go ahead and hit pause on Adela Dazeem — sorry, Idina Menzel’s — performance of “Let It Go” at the Oscars, because now there’s an even better version of Menzel singing the Frozen megahit.

On Monday’s Tonight Show, Menzel stopped by to debut the latest holdover sketch from Jimmy Fallon’s Late Night days: “[Song] with Classroom Instruments.” Accompanied, as always, by Fallon and The Roots, Menzel sang the catchy tune and looked like she was having a total blast. (This is what happens when John Travolta butchers your name, and now everyone knows who you are.)

Watch the fun below. Come for the tune, stay for the thrilled audience cheers throughout. And don’t worry: Idina totally crushes that glory note this time around. READ FULL STORY

Jennifer Lawrence jokingly tries to steal Oscar from Lupita Nyong'o -- PHOTO

Jennifer Lawrence can’t stop. Jennifer Lawrence won’t stop. And I, for one, wouldn’t want her to.

At last year’s Oscars, Lawrence took home the award for Best Actress, but only after she tripped her way up the stairs. And after she had the award in hand? She flipped off the entire press room. This year, she did not get a chance to trip up the stairs as she lost the Best Supporting Actress race to Twelve years A Slave‘s Lupita Nyong’o. However, J Law did not disappoint. She made sure to get her clumsiness out of the way early when she fell on the red carpet — stupid traffic cones! — and then, after she lost the Oscar race, she tried to get her hands on Nyong’o’s Oscar. Of course, she was joking, and the whole thing only makes us love her more.

The real question is, which fake fight was the night’s best — Lawrence’s struggle with Nyong’o, OR Kelly Osbourne “choking” Lady Gaga? (Osbourne and Gaga have apparently decided to bury the hatchet, after feuding for several years.) You decide:

John Travolta's favorite actress, Adela Dazeem, has joined Twitter

The only thing worse than John Travolta’s hair at the Oscars was John Travolta’s horrible mispronunciation of Idina Menzel’s name. When Travolta took the stage to introduce Menzel’s performance of the Oscar-nominated song, “Let It Go,” from her movie Frozen, he asked the audience to “please welcome the wickedly talented, one and only, Adela Dazeem.” At least, that’s what we thought he said; it’s pretty tough to understand that quick mumble.

Jimmy Fallon takes on office games with LeBron James -- VIDEO

Is this what we have to look forward to in Space Jam 2?

Probably not. Still, Jimmy Fallon added another notch to his viral video belt on Thursday’s Tonight Show when he joined guest LeBron James for “Wastepaper Basketball” — a perfectly ’80s ode to the wonderful office time waster, set to the music of Kurtis Blow.

The intentionally dorky video deserves special mention for rhyming “super fly” with “IT guy,” as well as for the uber-dated graphics interspersed with the duo shooting hoops (a.k.a throwing paper into a trash can). Somewhere, the Jim Halperts of the world are getting inspired.

Do tattoos make celebs cooler? This artist thinks so, and uses Photoshop to prove it

Dazed-and-Confused.jpg

With popular movies and shows like Divergent and Star-Crossed featuring characters with prominent tattoos, it begs the question: Does the mere presence of a tattoo make a character (or celeb) cooler? Well, if you asked Seattle-based artist Cheyenne Randall, the answer would probably be yes.

In fact, Randall has an entire Tumblr, Shopped Tattoos, dedicated to taking iconic images of celebs, movie characters and the like, and using Photoshop to add tattoos to their bodies. We’re talking everyone from Saved by the Bell‘s A.C. Slater to Audrey Hepburn.

Watch how Randall’s work unfolds by comparing the main image of Matthew McConaughey from Dazed and Confused above and Randall’s photoshopped photo below: READ FULL STORY

'Scandal' Behind the Scenes: Josh Malina introduces fans to 'Jazzy Snaps' -- VIDEO

Josh Cam, like Scandal, is back!

After a winter break that left us all having to cope without Pope, ABC’s crowned king of OMG TV is back. And to celebrate, we present you an all-new edition of EW’s ongoing behind-the-scenes video series in which cast member Josh Malina gives us a sneak peek at the action on set.

In this week’s edition, Malina introduces us to Mitchell Haddad, the man behind Scandal‘s signature “jazzy snaps.” (You’ll know exactly what we’re talking about when you click below.) READ FULL STORY

'Toy Story' theory: Are Andy's mother and Emily the same person?

Jon Negroni is about to expand your Toy Story-lovin’ minds with one simple question: Is Andy’s mom Emily?

For a little background, Emily was Jessie’s previous owner that we only briefly saw in flashbacks. When she grew up, Emily gave the toy away, which is when Jessie went to storage. But thanks to a few specific clues, it seems highly possible that Jessie magically found her way into the hands of Emily’s son years later.

The first clue is Andy’s hat. It doesn’t quite match Woody’s, and when you watch the flashback with Jessie and Emily, you see a nearly identical hat on Emily’s bed. And thanks to the size of Emily’s donation box, it’s clear that the young Emily didn’t give away the hat when she got rid of Jessie. Therefore, did Emily keep the hat and eventually pass it on to her son? READ FULL STORY

'Ghostbusters' firehouse, President Obama pay tribute to Harold Ramis

When you need a fitting tribute to Harold Ramis, who you gonna call? Try the Hook & Ladder 8 Firehouse in New York City.

After word broke yesterday that Ramis had passed away at the age of 69, the firehouse — home base of the Ghostbusters themselves — hung up a replica of the film’s iconic sign. In addition to co-starring as Dr. Egon Spengler, Ramis also co-wrote the 1984 classic and its 1989 sequel.

But it wasn’t just the sign that paid tribute to Ramis’s work. Elsewhere, many on Twitter documented a growing memorial outside the building that contained flowers, candles, and — of course — packages of Twinkies.
