And the SAG Award winners are …

Birdman / Michael Keaton

We're in the home stretch of awards season, which means it's time for the guild awards to start handing out pudding amongst their peers. This weekend gave us the double-header of the Producers Guild of America and the Screen Actors Guild, who both saw fit to give top honors to Birdman, which now puts it neck and neck with Boyhood for the top pudding at the Oscars. Anyway, let's take a look at all the actors who were rewarded for their work this MORE

Trailer: ‘Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt’ w/ Ellie Kemper!

Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt

A little while ago, we talked about how NBC passed on Tina Fey's new show, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, because ... I dunno. Maybe one of the executives' parents died of laughter and this is their revenge. Who knows? Anyway, the series made its way to Netflix, and here's our first official look at it. Initial impressions: The writing is sharp, especially when it hits the throwaway gags ("WHITE WOMEN FOUND! Hispanic woman also found." Nicely done.) MORE

All Tied Up: FKA Twigs’ “Pendulum”

FKA Twigs / "Pendulum"

A quick aside here: At my dayjob (Northbound Leather), there's a TV behind the cash register that runs footage from our past fashion shows. One of my favorite bits to watch comes from Bento, which features a rope bondage suspension that creates, as I put it, a human chandelier. Super cool stuff. Anyway, I bring this up because FKA Twigs' new music video for "Pendulum" features tons of amazing rope work, including some seriously impressive MORE

Lana Del Rey wants to take us all on a ‘Honeymoon’

Lana Del Rey | Hollywood Forever Cemetery | October 18, 2014

Lana Del Rey's career has been running pretty hot and cold from the start: Lana's first single, 2011's "Video Games" still remains a glorious fantasy, residing in a vague fog between earnest co-dependence  and winking irony. On the other hand, her 2012 debut album Born To Die was incredibly uneven as a whole, and mainstream success (thanks in large part to "Summertime Sadness"–the remix by Cedric Gervais) brought with it people who took MORE

The Oscar nominees are here!


Oh, you know what time it is: It's time to play our favorite Oscar nominations game, "Wait, what's that movie? How did that one get nominated? Why did they leave out ... HUH?!?!?!" You know how it works. Just read through the list of Academy Award nominees with an air of confusion because you didn't actually see any of these movies, even though you told yourself you were going to hit up the critical darlings this year but instead went to go see MORE

Winners: 72nd Annual Golden Globe Awards!

Tina Fey, Margaret Cho and Amy Poehler

The best run award shows are the ones where nothing major happens. If the biggest thing you remember is that the hosts knocked it out of the park with their opening monologues, then job well done by the producers! You nailed it. Anyway, let's see who won the Golden Globes and went home with the pudding, shall we? Best Drama Motion Picture Boyhood Best Actress in a Motion Picture, Drama Julianne Moore, Still Alice Best Actor In a Motion MORE

If you're as big a fan of the hit Showtime Original Series Shameless as PopBytes is–you’re frantically counting down the days until the season five premiere–this coming Sunday–January 11th at 9PM ET/PT–and dying to find out what's in store for our favorite (and totally cute) couple, Ian Gallagher (Cameron Monaghan) and Mickey Milkovich (Noel Fisher) ... #Gallavich!

Music Video / Sia / “Elastic Heart”

Sia / "Elastic Heart"

Hey everyone–happy new year! I wanted to drop in and quickly let you all know that PopBytes is currently undergoing a massive overhaul behind the scenes–the main content of the site will be shifting to something I love more than anything–music! There has been tons of music-related content over the years–however after almost twelve years of operation–music is now going to be the primary focus of PopBytes–mixed with dashes of TV, film MORE

First Look: The return of Fashion Police–without Joan Rivers :(

Fashion Police

After months of wondering what was happening with E!'s Fashion Police without the late Joan Rivers (may she rest in peace–that was a really tough loss for Team PopBytes this past September), it looks like we're finally getting a concrete answer–the show returns January 12th right after the Golden Globes are passed out, with a few changes. First, Kathy Griffin is stepping in to take the reigns, but I think we all already knew that. Second, MORE

The biggest box office flop of 2014 is …

Legends of Oz: Dorothy's Return

This was kind of a weird year at the box office. The highest-grossing film of the year involved Burt Macklin saving the universe alongside a talking tree and an angry raccoon while a sequel to a gritty box office smash ended up tanking and tanking hard. Well, IGN has compiled a list of the biggest flops of the year, and with a little math, I've put them together in order of which ones lost the most money. So without further ado, let's see the MORE

Adam Sandler tops Forbes’ list of overpaid actors!


Every year, after the holidays are over and the presents are unwrapped and we're eating leftover turkey and stuffing sandwiches for an entire week, Forbes likes to release their list of Hollywood's most overpaid actors. The concept is simple: You compare how much a star is paid versus how much they bring in and then math math math results. Anyway, it looks like Adam Sandler is topping the list for the second year in a row. I know, right? Who MORE

Box Office: Interviewing the unbroken hobbit in the woods!

Into The Woods

The Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies took the final box office of the year with a $41.4 Million weekend according to BoxOfficeMojo, which isn't half bad for a Tolkien movie in holiday months. I mean, it's no Return of the King, but at least they didn't go full Jar Jar Binks with this one. That being said, I'll be the first to admit that the CGI wasn't terribly great for the past three movies. A few prosthetics here and there would have done MORE

Catch Nicki Minaj’s ‘The Pinkprint Movie’

Nicki Minaj / The Pinkprint Movie

Nicki Minaj has come a long way, hasn't she? When she started off, she played up a cartoonish look and personality ala Lady Gaga / Katy Perry, and after a solid debut with 2010's Pink Friday and then 2012's (mediocre) Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded, Nicki has settled into a pretty nice and successful groove of demure sexiness with ties to pop, dance, rap, and R&B. Anyway, for her third studio release, The Pinkprint (one of 2014's most solid and MORE

Box Office: ‘The Hobbit’ takes one final journey

The Hobbit

All right, my partner and I pretty split on The Hobbit: The Battle of The Five Armies. He, claiming The Silmarillion as his favorite book of all time, thinks that The Hobbit movies are overly bloated to the point of watering down the content of the actual book. I, having never read any of the books, can recognize the faults in the movie (the CGI is serving Final Fantasy Cut Scene realness) but am otherwise entertained enough to give it a pass. I MORE
