Harry Shum Jr. Named Ambassador for the 2019 SAG Awards
Make way for the 2019 SAG Awards' new ambassador! Harry Shum Jr. has claimed the coveted spot this year—and deservedly so, as he's appeared on both the big and small screens. Most notably, perhaps, is his role as Magnus Bane on Freeform's Shadowhunters: The Mortal Instruments, which earned him the Male TV Star of 2018 award at the E! People's Choice Awards last month. Shum, of course, also starred as Charlie Wu in Warner Bros.' Crazy Rich Asians. And let's not forget he is a former SAG Award winner (Outstanding Ensemble in a Comedy Series) for his work on Glee. The actor, who last month announced that he and wife Shelby Robara are having a baby girl, can add this new title to...

Whoopi Goldberg Offers to Host Oscars — But Admits She's a 'Problematic' Pick
Whoopi Goldberg is speaking out against the idea that the Academy Awards forgo a host at the 2019 ceremony — and is offering to do the job herself.

Sources told Variety that skipping a host is one of the plans that the Academy is considering after Kevin Hart dropped out of hosting the Oscars. Hart initially did not apologize for his resurfaced homophobic tweets but did so as he stepped down.

“A bunch of huge celebs, something SNL style, and buzzy people” could replace the post that Hart was going to fill, sources told the publication.

True Detective Season 3: Mahershala Ali Is on the Case in the Ominous Official Trailer
Yes, True Detective is finally returning for season three, and yes, Mahershala Ali looks damn good in the trailer. The third installment of HBO's gritty detective series, an anthology from Nic Pizzolatto, stars the Moonlight Oscar winner as Wayne Hays, a state police detective from Northwest Arkansas. He sets out to solve the mystery of two missing children in 1980, eventually crossing paths with Amelia Reardon (Selma's Carmen Ejogo), an Arkansas schoolteacher with a connection to the kids. From the looks of the trailer, things go horribly awry and we can't wait to figure out why!

The new season will premiere on Sunday, Jan. 13, 2019. After a dry, painfully slow second season, the drama unsurprisingly lost a good number fans who couldn't get enough of Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson in season one. Fortunately, it seems the twisted new story - which will unfold over the course of three decades -

Nick Cannon is sticking by Kevin Hart.  The former Nickelodeon star appeared on Wednesday's episode of The Wendy Williams Show and defended his friend.  Last week, Hart stepped down from hosting the 2019 Oscars after fans called him out for attempting to discretely delete past homophobic tweets. Less than 24 hours later, Cannon called out Amy Schumer, Sarah Silverman and Chelsea Handler for also posting homophobic comments on social media. "Honestly, I know how much it meant to him, and I had to stand up for my best friend and just to show the selective outrage and hypocrisy that's out there," Cannon said.

Why Jennifer Garner Is Keeping Her New Romance as Private as Possible

Why Jennifer Garner Is Keeping Her New Romance as Private as Possible
Jennifer Garner already knows what it's like to date in public. She also knows about being in a very public couple, getting married in public and divorcing in public. Why would she ever want to go through all that again? While ex-husband Ben Affleck has already acquired at least one ex-girlfriend since he and Garner split up in 2015, Jen was much slower in dipping her toe back into the dating pool. She had work to do, kids to take care of, Affleck to give her endless moral support to, and, when she had a few extra moments, a private life to lead with friends, exercise and food—some of which we've seen on Instagram, another new thing she tried last year. "Brad and I are dating," she...

I'm Begging of You, Please Watch This Drag Queen "Jolene" Music Video

Netflix is doing the absolute most to promote its new movie, Dumplin'. If you're not familiar, it follows the story of an spunky, curvy, Dolly Parton-obsessed teenager named Willowdean as she tries to figure out who she is in a small Texas town. The clear Dolly Parton connection has yielded a treasure trove of exciting additions to the film: even during press rounds, Parton roasted her husband on national television and casually sipped tequila with Jennifer Aniston and Sandra Bullock. When it comes to the actual film, she wrote new music for the soundtrack and released a gorgeous, stripped-down version of "Jolene" that will absolutely give you chills.

Speaking of the phenomenon that is "Jolene," Netflix has done us one better: a new music video featuring tons of popular RuPaul's Drag Race alumni. The video, which features a slightly more uptempo version of Jolene, stars Ginger Minj, Alaska Thunderf*ck,

A Venom Sequel Is Happening, So Start Stocking Up on Snacks

Venom arrived in theaters back in October to middling reviews, but that didn't stop talk of all the potential sequels and spinoffs it might spawn.

In an August interview with Total Film, Tom Hardy revealed that Marvel could make up to three Venom movies, saying, "We've signed up for three of them. So it's very much an open case. We'll see what people's responses are to it." Variety also predicted that if the film delivered at the box office, then Sony would move fast to introduce a number of heroes and villains from the Spider-Man universe in the form of sequels to the Hardy outing, as well as stand-alone films. At the moment, Sony's licensing pact with Marvel affords it the rights to around 900 characters, so the possibilities are pretty much endless.
