Mike Leigh, Angelina Jolie, Richard Linklater, Bennett Miller, Christopher Nolan, and Morten Tyldum are gathered around the table talking about their work and their inspiration. Full Story

Between the Sony hack and the Golden Globes nominations (and snubs), it’s been a great week for gossip. So why are we talking about Ashton Kutcher? Oh, right, because he had a baby. Ashton was on Ellen (what was he promoting – the end of his sh-tty ass sexist stupid sitcom?) and the focus of the interview was the baby and how he and Mila take care of the baby. Full Story

Reese Witherspoon stepped out yesterday, Golden Globe nomination day. And she was named in the Best Drama Actress category. This outfit… But this is SUCH an LA Wife outfit, non?

I had high hopes for Netflix’s new period drama Marco Polo. With a $90 million dollar budget—making it the second-most expensive show on TV behind only Game of Thrones—and being co-produced by The Weinstein Company, the table was set for something interesting, maybe even special. Full Story

Beyonce has just posted a short film to her website in celebration of the one year anniversary of her album BEYONCE.
