Ellen Degeneres Portia De Rossi

Ellen Degeneres has become the most popular and loved television host in the States, cemented by her flawless performance hosting the Academy Awards on Sunday night. Ellen had the celebrities roaring with laughter as well as, at one stage, gathered together for a selfie. Ellen’s superstar selfie was retweeted over 2,000,000 times, crashing the server and making it the most retweeted pic of all time.

Ellen had previously hosted the Oscars back in 2007, but even by then she had been in the business for over 20 years. Ellen started in the stand up biz back in the early 1980’s, before getting her own sitcom Ellen in 1994. 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.

The fourth season of Arrested Development was such a huge success that Netflix is reportedly in talks for another one.

Speaking to Bloomberg Television, Grazer explained: “We are in conversations with them to do another. They are interested in doing that.”

The show’s fourth season of the show was part of a large-scale experiment for Netflix, the first phase of the company’s transition from a pure rental service into a producer of online content. Chief Executive Officer Reed Hastings has called “Arrested Development” and other “Netflix originals” integral to his strategy of transforming the company from a purveyor of rerun programming into a Web-based television network offering a mix of Hollywood movies and new shows, comparable to Time Warner Inc.’s HBO.

Arrested Development Creator As Suprised As Fans By The Show's Return

Will Arnett Jason Bateman Michael Cera Portia De Rossi

Hurrah, Arrested Development returns this Sunday. Fans of the original series could not be more excited, while everyone else is just kind of looking around being really confused. The Emmy-award winning show will come back with 15 brand new episodes, to Netflix of all places and in a lot of ways, it will be pretty similar to the Arrested Development we know and love – it will be divided into roughly half-hour episodes, with the entire main cast reprising their roles - Jason Bateman, Will Arnett, Jeffrey Tambor, Michael Cera, Alia Shawkat, Jessica Walter and Portia De Rossi.

Jason Bateman returns as Michael Bluth this Sunday.

But creator Mitch Hurwitz warns viewers not to expect a perfect replica of the earlier seasons. Besides the obvious changes, necessitated by the fact that this season comes seven years later, the story will be structured slightly differently. Instead of all the characters appearing most of the time, like we’ve been used to, every episode from season four will be centered around a single character, with the rest of the Bluth family making only occasional appearances. Longtime fans, however, will be rewarded for their dedication, with story arcs that continue over several episodes. Much like his audience, Hurwitz himself could not be more excited by the show’s return. Or more surprised.

The World's Favorite F.R.I.E.N.D.S Reunite On Ellen

Jennifer Aniston Matthew Perry Courteney Cox Ellen Degeneres Portia De Rossi

Jennifer Aniston got to co-host The Ellen Degeneres Show this week and gave us all a mini Friends reunion in the process. In the slightly awkward, slightly confusing bit, Aniston was nervous about the gig and she naturally went to her former co-star Matthew Perry for some sage advice. Except Perry wasn’t exactly thrilled to see her at the door, at 8AM no less. And when Aniston objected that they “used to do walk into each other’s apartments all the time”, Perry made a valid point (which went straight to the hearts of Friends fans).

Anniston was apparently the brains behind the reunion.

"That was a TV show," he counters. "We haven't actually seen each other in a really long time. Like eight years."

Jennifer Aniston Co-Hosting "Ellen" Turns Into A Mini Friends Reunion

Matthew Perry Ellen Degeneres Portia De Rossi

Well, the long awaited Friends reunion finally happened, though probably not in the way fans of the show had hoped. It might have been a three-minute sketch with just three of the show’s stars, but hey, we take what we can get. The occasion was Jennifer Aniston’s gig co-hosting The Ellen Degeneres Show.

The premise was pretty simple – Jen is nervous and so she goes to seek hosting advice from a veteran – her longtime pal and Friends co-star, Matthew Perry. Except Perry is not really in the mood to talk (“Maybe you shouldn’t show up at somebody’s house at 8AM and you should call first”) To Jen’s dismay, things have changed between the Friends, or maybe, as Perry hints, they were never really all that friendly and it was all just an act for the cameras. Except that’s when Courteney Cox (aka Monica) comes out of his house and the, ahem, stuff hits the fan.

“Court!” Aniston exclaims.

Katy Perry Ignores Grammys Dress Code In Flesh Baring Dress (Pictures)

Katy Perry, Grammys Dress 2013Katy Perry's Grammys Dress Caused Quite A Stir

It's safe to say Katy Perry stole the entire show at the Grammy awards on Sunday evening (February 10, 2013) in a mint green Gucci dress that featured a rather revealing keyhole cut-out. It quickly caused excitement on Twitter, with fans of the star lauding her daring choice of dress. It wasn't just her followers who noticed either, with various amusing photographs of celebrities in awe of Perry's, ugh, assets, circulating online today.

Elton John, of all people, was caught out cheekily eyeing up Perry's dress, while television star Ellen Degeneres made a joke of the elephant in the room, staring intently at Perry's chest as her girlfriend Portia De Rossi looked on. "I was inspired by Priscilla Presley in the Seventies... Married to Elvis Presley, of course," Perry told Ryan Seacrest of her Grammys dress. Seacrest himself joked that he had luckily had plenty of practice at staying focused when at eye level. One man who did manage to keep his eyes on the ball was Perry's boyfriend John Mayer, who was photographed staring straight into Katy's eyes when the pair were snapped taking their seats. The 35-year-old blues guitarist admitted that he's been thinking about marrying Perry, 28, sometime in the future. When asked whether a wedding would be a possibility, Mayer said, "Of course. I mean, I'm still the kid from Connecticut. That's what you do," according to the Daily Mail.

Kelly Clarkson Photobomb Lights Up The Grammys

Kelly Clarkson Ellen Degeneres Portia De Rossi

Kelly Clarkson won Best Pop Vocal Album last night at The Grammys, but she also won the hearts of many with a delightfully silly photobomb and eloquent, modest speech.

Ellen Degeneres and Portia De Rossi posed for a picture in their slick, glamerous attire, and were unknowingly trumped by a spritely Kelly Clarkson who drew a wide smile and pointed at them in the background. Lovely stuff. "I didn't know I was going to win 'cause I literally, I was so excited to be in a category with Fun," beamed Kelly from the stage upon receiving her award. "I have been covering you all summer. I'm sorry, I love that song. I think it's so awesome. I love Pink. Everyone - Adele - that I was in a category with. Anyway, thank you so much, friends, family, label, my manager, Narvel [Blackstock, Brandon's father and Kelly's manager], my fiancé, who is sexy tonight. I did not think I was going to win. Thank you!" she continued in her adorable speech. And, presumably still high on that buzz, she belted out her tribute to Carol King and Patti Page with gusto.

Cursed Review

Although Arrested Development's Portia De Rossi and Judy Greer co-star in the werewolf mishmash Cursed, fellow Arrested cast member and erstwhile Teen Wolf Jason Bateman is nowhere to be found. Too bad; this horror-comedy could use a little more deadpan in its comedy, and a little more anything in its horror.

Really, both should've been covered when Miramax reunited Scream's writer and director, Kevin Williamson and Wes Craven. In the Scream trilogy, these uneven artists brought out the best in each other: Williamson's overwritten self-referential dialogue felt smarter braced against Craven-directed tension, which flourished with funny and likable characters. Cursed starts with the likable characters, and then jams on the brakes.

All The Way Review

Dennis Hopper as Frank Sinatra? It's a crazy idea, but not as wild as you might think. From a distance, Hopper bears a striking resemblance to the older, chunkier Frank. And whoever's doing the singing for him reasonably approximates a blend of Hopper's voice with Sinatra's.

Of course, there's a plot you need to suffer through to marvel at the stunt casting, and it involves a presumably true story about Sinatra being wooed to visit Australia in 1974 by a two-bit promoter. Getting him Down Under is only half the fun. Once he arrives, Frank -- in his inimitable way -- insults a reporter (Portia de Rossi) by calling her a whore. Aussie's native sons rise to defend her, and over 100 unions go on strike to ensure Frank won't be able to eat, drink, travel, or take a shower -- much less perform on stage. Hilarity ensues as our promoter friend (Joel Edgerton) tries to patch things back together, dealing with his own love life along the way.
