Some of us just yawned and obsessed over the ticking of the clock during our far-too-long commencement speeches. Whatever maniac decided that so-and-so's wife's something or other who didn’t even graduate is equipped to send students off with a 30-minute diatribe on themselves is sorely mistaken. Just dole out the degrees already and call a day a day, right, kids? Unless ...
You know, every so often schools are able to wrangle in someone actually interesting to deliver a few notes of wisdom — some more often than others (cough Harvard cough). Even better, once in a while they're our very shiniest movie stars who make lots of funnies and deliver all the feels and suddenly the speeches don't seem so bad. Get More »
Will Ferrell's "Anchorman" sequel's subtitle might be "The Legend Continues" but it should probably be re-dubbed "A Series Of Potentially Distracting Cameo Appearances" (although that would be really hard to fit on the marquee). Kanye West, Tina Fey, Kristin Wiig, Nicole Kidman, Sacha Baron Cohen, Amy Poehler (whom "Anchorman" die hards will remember had a sizable role in the first film, only to see her entire subplot deleted from the final product), Liam Neeson, John C. Reilly, Jim Carrey and Harrison Ford have all shot cameos for the hotly anticipated sequel (also: an animatronic shark).
The latest celebrity to be roped into this cameo feeding frenzy? None other than Canadian rapper Drake.

The cast members of "Parks and Recreation" are practically superheroes to us already. The way they work together to bring justice to the town of Pawnee, Indiana is just remarkable. So why not make it official and slap a Batman mask over Ron Swanson's head? (Completed with a cutout for his mustache, of course.) Get More »
Not all movie stars are created equal. Some are tall. Some are short. Some spend their free time on philanthropy. Some spend their free time in jail. And some secretly gave children up for adoption. Wait; that's actually Tina Fey's character in "Admission" — not to be confused with the real Tina Fey, who (at the time of this posting) has not put any of her offspring up for adoption. Get More »
Anything that Nick Offerman has done or will ever do is funny in some fashion. Pretty much everyone agrees with this, including, apparently, Nick Offerman.
As if specifically putting that theory to the test, the promo for Offerman's latest film, "Somebody Up There Likes Me," first presented by our fraternal twins at Cinemablend, is bizarre on a level that makes a David Lynch movie seem like the gag reel of Adam Sandler's "Grown Ups" by comparison.
Graced with more celebrities per capita than your everyday disaster relief telethon, the promo starts with Offerman's "Parks & Recreation" co-star Adam Scott confronting Offerman in his wood shop about not showing up to the P&R set for work that day.
Things get decidedly NSFW from there. Get More »
Seth MacFarlane is currently experiencing some rather serious backlash for the ups and downs of his turn as host of this year's Academy Awards, so it's hardly a surprise there's "no way" he'll take that job again. And while it's been less than a week since the Oscars, people are already starting to look forward to next year's big show with Tina Fey and Amy Poehler among the most wanted hosts for 2014, natch.
Unfortunately, that will not happen. Get More »

1. Anne Hathaway is visited by the Ghost of Oscars Past
The Hollywood Foreign Press announced their nominations for the 2013 Golden Globe Awards earlier today, but that announcement may have been overshadowed by some even bigger Golden Globes news, as new hosts Amy Poehler and Tina Fey released their first teaser ad for the ceremony.
All we can say is, Ricky who? Get More »
Well, we just got about a thousand times more excited about next year's Golden Globes.
The producers of the awards ceremony have apparently decided the show needs a woman's touch as Amy Poehler and Tina Fey are set to co-host the 70th Annual Golden Globes, according to Deadline.
The lady comedians will be taking over the gig from Ricky Gervais, who hosted the awards show the past three years (often to much morning-after controversy due to his particularly unpredictable and confrontational style of comedy). Get More »
