Justice Anthony M. Kennedy revealed the majority opinion was 5 to 4, before sharing his own thoughts on the verdict for those who would be affected. 'Their plea is that they do respect it, respect it so deeply that they seek to find its fulfillment for themselves', he said. 'Their hope is not to be condemned to live in loneliness, excluded from one of civilization's oldest institutions. They ask for equal dignity in the eyes of the law. The Constitution grants them that right.'

Jodie Foster has married her girlfriend of a year, Alexandra Hedison. But who is the Los Angeles photographer?
Jodie Foster has married her girlfriend of a year, Alexandra Hedison. The nuptials have been confirmed by Foster’s publicist, after celebrity network E! began circulating rumors over the weekend. The pair wed at an undisclosed location, although Foster resides in California, which is one of the 17 US states in which gay marriage is legal.

Oscar-winning actress Jodie Foster publicly came out at last year’s Golden Globes, announcing “I already did my coming out about a thousand years ago, back in the stone age.

The pair are back; will they get it right this time?
Okay, ready for another awards season? The dust has barely settled on 2014’s selfie-centric Oscars, but the Academy are already looking ahead to another winter of speculation by confirming Neil Meron and Craig Zadan are returning as producers for a third ceremony in a row.
Zadan and Meron will work on The Oscars again
It’s not as if the pair have gleaned critical acclaim for their last two efforts; Seth Macfarlane’s ceremony was considered to be too focussed on musicals, while DeGeneres’ was criticised for being too boring. Perhaps the producer pair can find some middle ground considering they’re taking on the middle of the decade in 2015.
Zadan and Meron have been invited back, which means we can once again expect a digitally active Oscars ceremony.
The directorial duo Craig Zadan and Neil Meron have become favorites around Hollywood come awards season and now they’ve been called on again to produce the 2015 Oscars ceremony. This will be Zadan and Meron’s third consecutive year running the live broadcast after this year’s ceremony brought in the best ratings in 14 years. Almost 44 million viewers in the United States tuned into the ABC live telecast of Hollywood's biggest night, hosted by comedian, talk show host and potential demigod Ellen Degeneres, 8 percent more than the previous year and the highest number since 2000, according to Nielsen ratings data, via Reuters.
Zadan and Meron's last turn at the Oscars was nothing short of a rousing success.
Whatever Zadan and Meron are doing – so far they have been banking on broad social media appeal – has been working.
Piers Morgan has criticised the US government for quailing under pressure from the gun lobby. Morgan delivered an impassioned speech on the last episode of his CNN show 'Piers Morgan Live'.
Piers Morgan ended his three year run on his CNN talk show Piers Morgan Live on Friday (28th March) with a plea to the US government to change "the absurd gun laws".Morgan's show was cancelled following low ratings and possibly his involvement in the phone hacking scandal, nevertheless he left the show on a somewhat controversial note.
Morgan, ever controversial, used his final show as an opportunity to comment on the social and political implications of gun laws in the US. He referenced recent tragedies in which guns were used to kill large numbers of people which prompted criticism of gun laws in the US and worldwide.
Morgan has spent a number of years in the states over the past decade and described gun violence, such as that displayed in the Connecticut Sandy Hook massacre and the Colorado Aurora Cinema, as "a disease that infects every aspect of American life". Referencing these attacks Morgan said, as The Independent reports: "I assumed that after 70 people were shot in a movie theatre and then just a few months later 20 first-graders were murdered with an assault rifle in an elementary school, that the absurd gun laws in this country would change, but nothing has happened".

During the fourth season of the sitcom, Ellen publicly announced that she was a lesbian during an appearance on The Oprah Winfrey Show. Her character in the sitcom shortly followed suit and, in an episode called “The Puppy Episode”, which received some of the highest-ratings that Ellen had had so far, also came out. The show then went on to tackle some issues faced by the LGBT community, but after another season the show was axed due to falling ratings.

"Adele Dazeem" - the words that will haunt John Travolta, forever more.
There’s a fine line between the ignominy of Internet mockery and online hysteria. Jennifer Lawrence, for instance, enjoys the latter, while John Travolta calling Idina Menzel "Adele Dazeem" at the Oscars on Sunday night really secures you a place in the former camp.
There's something ridiculous about John Travolta - we just can't work out what it is
But this mockery isn’t all bad; after all, he only got someone’s name wrong. He did embellish the introduction with things like “wickedly talented” etc., but he only got Menzel’s name wrong.
