Andy Samberg Sandra Oh

The most recent Golden Globes presenters thought so

Superstars of Golden Globes night - presenters Andy Samberg and Sandra Oh - dubbed themselves the 'nicest people in showbusiness': and reaction to their turn hosting the big award gig was not far off. Oh said she wanted to make this award show - the 76th - lighter than last year's and the duo were careful to avoid politics, or even the Time's Up movement.

Sandra Oh also took home a Best Actress gong at the awards she hosted

During the last awards season, Hollywood was reeling from allegations against several powerful men in media, including Harvey Weinstein, Louis CK, and Matt Lauer.

Fan Outrage After Fox Cancels 'Brooklyn Nine-Nine'

However, many reports are suggesting that Netflix or Hulu could step in to rescue it.

Massive fan outrage at the cancellation of sitcom ‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine’ by Fox last night might yet see it get revived on a different network, with streaming services like Netflix and Hulu reported to be interested in snapping it up.

Social media lit up in protest on Thursday night (May 10th) after Fox announced the outcome of its annual axe-wielding when it comes to its schedules. As well as ‘The Mick’ and ‘The Last Man On Earth’ getting the chop, Andy Samberg’s regularly popular police sitcom ‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine’ was a surprise inclusion in the list of shows that were getting decommissioned by the network.

Co-creator Dan Goor acknowledged the decision on Twitter, expressing his regret and thanking people for an “incredible outpouring of support” and calling them “the best fans in the world”.

Brigsby Bear Review


Director Dave McCary makes a superb feature debut with this offbeat black comedy, which explores the experiences of a young man rescued after years in captivity. The darker emotions are here, but that's not the focus of this film, which instead playfully keeps the audience laughing as it cleverly weaves a tale that will resonate in unexpected ways. And the fanboy-style premise makes it wonderfully timely.

This is the story of 25-year-old James (played by cowriter Kyle Mooney), who was kidnapped as an infant and raised in a bunker by Ted and April (Mark Hamill and Jane Adams), who claimed to be his parents and told him the air outside was unbreathable. Over the years, he gets his education from weekly videotape episodes of the children's show Brigsby Bear, made by Ted specifically for him. Then when he's rescued and reunited with his real parents (Matt Walsh and Michaela Watkins), they're strangers to him. As is his spiky little sister Aubrey (Ryan Simpkins). To make sense of this big new world, he gets help from a cop (Greg Kinnear) and a therapist (Claire Danes). But he longs to revisit Brigsby's world. So when Aubrey's friend Spencer (Jorge Lendeborg) shows interest in the furry character, James launches an epic plan to make a movie to bring the TV series to a conclusion.

Obviously, all of this is working as a kind of rehabilitation for James, and the film is smartly assembled to bring the audience into his quirky perspective. We've seen an episode of Brigsby, so we understand how it has charmed him with its nutty sci-fi superhero action. And it's hilarious to see James thrown into our world when his only cultural references relate to Brigsby. Meanwhile, Mooney underscores James' obsession with a bright sense of curiosity that's infectious both for the other characters in the story and for us watching it.

Brigsby Bear Trailer

When James Pope was just a baby, he was kidnapped from the hospital in which he was born. His new parents took him to live in the middle of an isolated expanse of wilderness, and refused to teach him anything about the world outside of their home and only let him watch a children's TV show called 'Brigsby Bear'. The only problem is, it has never been a real show and is merely a creation by his parents. One day, as an adult in his early 30s, he is rescued from his captors and taken out into the real world for the first time. Naturally, he is overwhelmed and confused about the nature of his new life, but nothing compares to finding out that 'Brigsby Bear' has never been a real show. However, it's the only thing he knows, so he sets out to bring the character out into the open and embarks on a filming project to create a movie of the character that shaped his entire life.

Kelsey Grammer And Andy Samberg Think Storks Celebrates Family

The animated comedy Storks centres on the birds' legendary function as delivers of babies.

And for the voice cast, this made creating the characters a lot of fun. "For me," says Kelsey Grammer, father of six children, "it's about just celebrating babies, celebrating life, celebrating the gift that every child is."

Grammer enjoyed taking on a darker role as the intimidating boss Hunter in the movie. "Well, you just have to know what play you're in," he laughs. "You have to know you are in a comedy. You have to know that you are actually allowing the audience to participate on some level. In this, when you go dark, you know that there is something funny going on."

With just a few days to go before he hosts the Primetime Emmy Awards, comedian and actor Andy Samberg is promising to “keep it light, silly and fun” when he takes to the stage on Sunday for the biggest night in TV.

The 37 year old ‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine’ star told E! News at Wednesday’s preview night (September 16th) that preparations were almost complete for the ceremony, and that he wasn’t feeling too nervous. “I'm feeling really good, man, it's going well,” he said. “We're writing up a storm and we have shot a couple of pre-tapes, so we're editing and I feel good about it all.”

When asked what he thought he could get away with in terms of button-pushing and jokes, he replied: “Less than on ‘Saturday Night Live’ and probably about the same as on ‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine’.”
