Julia Louis-Dreyfus with her award for Outstanding Female Actor in a Comedy Series award for 'Veep' at the 23rd Screen Actors Guild Awards (SAG) held at The Shrine Auditorium Media Complex - Los Angeles, California, United States - Sunday 29th January 2017
It was also a good night for ‘Mad Men’s’ Jon Hamm and comedy ‘Veep’.
Last night’s Primetime Emmy Awards saw history being made as HBO drama ‘Game Of Thrones’ took home an unprecedented 12 awards and ‘How To Get Away With Murder's' Viola Davis became the first black actress to win the outstanding lead actress in a drama series award.
Viola Davis was named outstanding lead actress in a drama series.
‘Game of Throne’s’ 12 gongs is more than any other series has won in a single year at the awards show. Among the trophies picked up by the fantasy series were, outstanding supporting actor in a drama series for Peter Dinklage and outstanding directing for a drama series going to David Nutter. The show also beat ‘Mad Men’ to scoop the outstanding drama series award.
Jim Carrey was rocking his beard - which is looking incerasingly bushier - as he arrived at the Ed Sullivan Theater in New York for the last episode of 'The Late Show with David Letterman'. He was also sporting a T-shirt with the slogan 'Spank You'; a catchphrase of his from the 'Ace Ventura' movies.
The classic 90s series is reportedly close to been sold to an online streaming service for a hefty price tag.
We could all soon be enjoying the luxury of watching our favourite episodes of ‘Seinfeld’ whenever we wish, as the series is reportedly close to inking a deal with an online streaming service. According to the Wall Street Journal, Sony Pictures Television is in advanced talks to sell reruns of the series to an online video service, with a deal possibly being reached within a matter of weeks.
Seinfeld could soon be availble to stream at your pleasure
Hulu, Amazon and Yahoo are said to be among the bidders for the sitcom, while Netflix has apparently passed after taking a “hard look at the series last year”. But whoever decides to purchase 'the show about nothing’ wont be getting a bargain, as sources report the deal could fetch a price well north of half a million dollars per episode.

Cranston, Paul and Louis-Dreyfus combine in this hilarious video
Julia Louis-Dreyfus attempted to sell her Primetime Emmy Award to Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul, who now work as owners of a seedy pawnshop called Barley Legal. You have no idea how much we want that whole sentence to be true, but it’s not.

It is, in fact, a spot sponsored by Audi of America for the Emmys. It sees Dreyfus try and drum up some quick cash to pay for a regrettable purchase. "I read somewhere that Celine Dion has her own island, and last night I had a little bit too much rosé, did some online shopping, so now I have to pay for my own island," she explains in the video.

How hard would it have been to have used the right constitution signature?
Julia Louis-Dreyfus is this month's Rolling Stone cover star and can currently be seen posing nude on the cover of the entertainment magazine. Well, not completely nude: the Veep actress' back in the shots is adorned with a tattoo print of U.S. Constitution signed by John Hancock across her back. The problem is Hancock signed the Declaration of Independence, not the Constitution. Doh!
Julia Louis-Dreyfus Has Posed Nude For The Cover And Feature Interview For Rolling Stone.
It's unclear who made this rather embarrassing error but it certainly didn't slip by eagle-eyed Rolling Stone readers. The goof circulated online until the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia joined in the mockery by tweeting the cover alongside Founding Fathers George Washington and Benjamin Franklin in Signers' Hall with the words, "Thanks for the shoutout but no Hancock here."
The critics agree, Enough Said is a poignant goodbye to the legendary actor
For a man who rarely spoke; kept his business private and was always described as a warm, caring man, starring in a poignant, romantic comedy called Enough Said was the perfect way to end an enigmatic, brilliant career.
James Gandolfini's sudden passing happened in Italy due to a heart attack
The critics have warmed to the romantic comedy, praising its fresh take on the tired genre. It sees two fifty-somethings attempting to date, while ex-wives, weight problems and self-confidence all put up staunch barriers.
With a strikingly against-type performance from the late Gandolfini, this film gives the romantic-comedy formula a welcome adult spin. Writer-director Holofcener keeps the characters authentic even as she indulges in some rather farcical plotting. And her astutely observational dialog lets the cast members create characters who are funny, flawed and thoroughly engaging.
At a party, massage therapist Eva (Louis-Dreyfus) meets two people who become important in her life. First is Marianne (Keener), whose snappy wit and honesty make her much more than just a new client. And then there's Albert (Gandolfini), an unlikely suitor who charms Eva with his dry wit and warm camaraderie as they share common emotions about daughters (Fairaway and Hewson) who are leaving home for university. But as Marianne moans about her miserable ex-husband, Eva realises that she's talking about Albert. And she knows that if she tells them that she's made this connection, she'll lose both a friend and a boyfriend.
Holofcener takes this simple idea and stretches it nearly to the breaking point. Fortunately, the film's real strength lies in the interaction between these people, and it's easy to identify with their hesitance as they endure a series of awkward moments that feel bracingly realistic. All of the dialog bristles with humour that feels improvised, and Louis-Dreyfus has always been an expert at combining comedy with both underlying strength and fragility (see Veep). Gandolfini seems like a strange match for her, but he plays the role so beautifully that we root for them as a couple.

With a tear, fans can wave goodbye to the late actor in this sweet and funny rom-com.
It's perhaps fitting that James Gandolfini eschewed his gangster typecast in favour of a warm, good-humoured teddy bear of a man in his last ever film, Enough Said: it marks the end of an era.
James Gandolfini's Last Film Has Premiered In New York.
Known for his role as mob boss Tony Soprano in the long-running HBO drama The Sopranos, Gandolfini died this June of a heart attack whilst holidaying with his family in Rome, aged 51 which came as a massive, heart-breaking shock for his fans. The just-released Enough Said marks the actor's last ever filming.
