02/15/2016 AT 09:35 AM EST No matter what you think about the current president, it’s hard to throw shade at these fictional commanders-in-chief on their big day (TV and movie presidents totally count, right?). Morgan Freeman’s first term was in 1998’s Deep Impact, in which he played President Beck, the man tasked with seeing the nation through a comet impact that reduced most of the world to rubble. Michael Douglas swept Annette Bening off her feet (and audiences along with her) as President Andrew Shepherd in The...

As they begin life as no longer part of an A-list couple but just two separate A-listers, Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner each have a busy year of making and releasing movies ahead of them.

His mother (Gugino) tries to keep the family afloat but has done so only with great emotional and financial...

Christopher Walken is known for many things — his prolific film résumé, Oscar-winning role in 1978’s The Deer Hunter and seven hosting gigs on Saturday Night Live — but what arguably may be the most notable thing about the actor is his distinctive talking style.

“House of Cards” on Netflix The Bottom Line The lack of believability and realism in the second season is at least being addressed early on, but the worry about the series is that Frank and Claire Underwood have no real challengers in their quest for power. And if that remains the case, all the soapy bubbles will start bursting for this series. Air...

Kicking off the Writers Guild of America, East ceremony on Saturday at the Edison Ballroom in a snowy New York City was The Nightly Show host Larry Wilmore, who emceed the evening. Wilmore, in a nod to NBC News’ recent anchor controversy, was excited to “honor the great creators of fiction: Wes Anderson … Brian Williams …” and joked of the Ballroom ceremony’s scheduling: “What are the odds a bunch of writers would be free on Valentine’s Day?!” After poking fun at the nominated films,...

FOX The Screen Actors Guild Awards are like the Gettysburg Address of award shows—they’re a show of the actors, by the actors, for the actors. So unless Jennifer Lawrence‘s dress looks like it’s ripping, that often doesn’t make for the most scintillating of entertainments for the non-voters watching at home. But there were a handful...

The backstage farce “Birdman” topped the 21st annual Screen Actors Guild Award, winning best ensemble cast, even though its star, Micheal Keaton, was upset by Eddie Redmayne in the most outstanding actor category.

Sunday’s Golden Globes ceremony was a happy day for the many deserving victors, including House of Cards‘ Kevin Spacey, his first time winning a trophy in eight tries.

“You want to know what takes real courage? Holding it all together when the stakes are this high.” House of Cards‘ anti-hero Francis Underwood (Kevin Spacey) may have snaked his way to the highest office in the land, but that doesn’t mean the methods he used to get there won’t incur a little madness. In tandem with Spacey’s Golden Globe award win on Sunday, Netflix released the trailer for the series’s third season. The tense promo shows flashes of Frank in the wake of his scheme-filled rise to...

What a night! The Golden Globes are one of the best award shows all season, and tonight was no different. Once again Tina Fey and Amy Poehler slayed their hosting gig.

A version of this story appears in the Jan. 16 issue of The Hollywood Reporter magazine. Every January, the Golden Globes afterparties are completely different — and totally the same.

Below, a list to help you Globe-trot...

One of the better performances that I saw on last year’s awards circuit is only now reaching theaters. It is the one given by Benicio Del Toro, the 48-year-old Oscar winner, as Colombian drug lord Pablo Escobar in Andrea Di Stefano‘s directorial debut Escobar: Paradise Lost. For a variety of reasons, Radius, the film’s distributor, elected to push back the film’s release to this summer, something that is very fortunate for people seeking an alternative to the mindless sequels, remakes and adaptations of pre-existing...
