Jimmy Fallon became a talk show host in 2009 , when he replaced Conan O’Brien as the face of Late Night . Fallon had never done anything like it before. So as he prepared to take over, he turned to the man who knew the job better than anyone. “Any advice?” Fallon asked O’Brien. “I can’t give you any advice,” O’Brien replied. “You just have to do it.” “I didn’t love that — I mean, that’s not great advice,” Fallon says now. “But I was talking about it with someone and they said, well, he’s right — because he found who his character is and who he is. Who are you ? Who is Jimmy Fallon as a show?” Image Credit: Brian Bowen Smith | NBC In that moment, Fallon realized he did not have a good answer. Sure, he had ideas for what would be in his show — the silly games and unbridled joy that would come to define his brand. But why should someone care about him ? Who is Jimmy Fallon? “When you actually get that question, you’re like, uh, um, uh, well, I have brown … [Read more...] about Jimmy Fallon Spent Years Chasing A Dream That Wasn’t Really His.

The first season of ABC’s new historical anthology series Women of the Movement , premiering on Jan. 6, sets out to tell the compelling story of educator and activist Mamie Till-Mobley, whose son Emmett Till was brutally murdered at the age of 14 by two white men after being accused of whistling at a white woman in 1955. Folks already familiar with this political flashpoint know of her decision to have Till’s corpse shipped from Mississippi, where he was murdered, to her home in Chicago and hold an open-casket funeral so the world could see his mutilated body. After an all-white jury acquitted both of Till’s assailants in a trial in Mississippi, Till-Mobley embarked on a nationwide speaking tour with the NAACP, sharing her son’s story and advocating for civil rights and, later on, the abolishment of the death penalty, a mission she continued until she died in 2003. With an elite ensemble of Black, female directors and “women” in its title, the limited series wants to correct … [Read more...] about Jay-Z and Will Smith’s ‘Women of the Movement’ Fails to Do Emmett Till’s Mother Mamie Justice

There’s no telling how many times Kent Bazemore actually watched the video overnight. The Warriors’ reserve wing guessed he would review the team’s 114-93 loss at Phoenix three or four times between the flight home late Thursday night and the wee hours of Friday morning. No matter how many times he hit rewind, Bazemore probably returned to the same conclusion he did in the immediate aftermath of the loss. “I think the world of this team. I think we have a shot,” he said after a seven-point, five-rebound night. “I’ve been around for a very long time, and I think we have pretty much everything we need. It’s just a matter of putting it together on a consistent basis.” That’s the thing: The Warriors haven’t found any consistency. They’ve neither won more than two games in a row, nor lost more than two games in a row on their way to a 10-9 record. The topsy-turvy season continued Thursday, when the Warriors failed to extend their winning streak to three after beating Minnesota … [Read more...] about Warriors’ Steve Kerr: ‘We can’t really trust anything that we’re doing consistently’
First, the Golden Globes were going to go toe-to-toe with the Critic’s Choice Awards on Sunday night. Now, after the critics’ ceremony was postponed amid the Omicron surge, the Globes will have Sunday night all to themselves for a big, splashy … … audience-less, glorified PowerPoint presentation. Which may or may not be livestreamed. After NBC bowed out as the broadcaster for this year’s event over ethical missteps and a lack of diversity at the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, the group of journalists that puts on the Golden Globes, the ceremony on Sunday will be decidedly low-key. A small number of vaccinated, boosted, masked, socially distanced H.F.P.A. members and other guests will attend the 90-minute event, kicking off at 9 p.m. Eastern time (6 p.m. Pacific) in the ballroom of the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills. There will be no red carpet or outside media covering the night in person. It seems the event will be more like a graduation ceremony than the … [Read more...] about What Is Happening With the 2022 Golden Globes?
SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — A Utah tech company founder and onetime prominent figure in state Republican politics resigned from the board of the company he started Tuesday after sending an email outlining an antisemitic vaccination conspiracy theory. David Bateman, founder and board chair of the company Entrata, claimed the COVID-19 vaccine is part of a plot by “the Jews” to exterminate people, Fox13 reported. The email attacks the efficacy of the COVID-19 vaccine and urges people not to get it. It claims the pandemic and “systematic extermination of billions of people” will lead to an effort to “consolidate all the countries in the world under a single flag with totalitarian rule.” The recipients included the owner of NBA’s Utah Jazz, Ryan Smith, GOP Gov. Spencer Cox and Utah Senate Minority Whip Luz Escamilla, a Democrat. “These irresponsible comments are hurtfully antisemitic, blatantly false, and we completely reject them,” Cox tweeted. Bateman confirmed he sent the email in … [Read more...] about Tech founder out after antisemitic, anti-vaccine screed
