With over 70 years of television to consider, we had to provide ourselves with a few rules to help simplify things. One of those was that every woman in our gallery must have been an ongoing leading lady at some point, preferably more often than not.

Couple goals: Angela Bassett and Courtney B. Vance could become the latest Emmy-winning spouses

Couple goals: Angela Bassett and Courtney B. Vance could become the latest Emmy-winning spouses
It might be hard to believe, but Angela Bassett has never won an Emmy before. She’s now her fifth nomination after making the Best Narrator lineup for her work on Nat Geo’s “The Flood.” If she prevails, not only will she get her first statuette, but she and husband Courtney B. Vance will join the club of Emmy-winning married couples.

Vance has a perfect record at the Emmys, converting his first nomination into a win in 2016 in Best Limited Series/TV Movie Actor for his performance as Johnnie Cochran on “The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story.” He gave a brief but memorable speech in which he dedicated the award to his wife of now nearly 22 years — or “the woman that rocks my chain.” #truelove

Bassett’s previous nominations were for “The Rosa Parks Story”, “American Horror Story: Coven”, “American Horror Story: Freak Show” and “Master of None”. In “The Flood,

Anna Chlumsky (‘Veep’) will become one of the 10 biggest Supporting Actress Emmy nominees, but can she finally win?
Based on the combined Emmy predictions of thousands of Gold Derby users, we’re pretty confident Anna Chlumsky will be nominated again for Best Comedy Supporting Actress for her role as political adviser Amy Brookheimer in HBO’s “Veep.” It would be her sixth nomination, which would place her among the top 10 nominees in the history of the category, but can she finally win the darn thing?

As of this writing, we rank Chlumsky third in the race with odds of 5/1. She trails the front-runner Alex Borstein (“The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel”), who won last year, and previous two-time champ Kate McKinnon (“Saturday Night Live”), who is also aiming for her sixth nomination in the category. But since this was the last season of “Veep” and Chlumsky hasn’t won yet, voters may decide it’s finally time to reward her, especially since almost everyone who has been nominated in this

New Trailer for Elephant Rescue Film 'Saving Flora' with Jenna Ortega

"Aren't you going to ask me why I'm traveling with an elephant?" Synkronized has debuted the trailer for an indie drama titled Saving Flora, which premiered at a few small film festivals last year. Saving Flora is a family film about a circus elephant named Flora who can no longer perform her tricks. But before she's put down, the circus owner's daughter runs away with the elephant and goes on an adventure trying to save her. Starring Jenna Ortega along with David Arquette, Martin Martinez, Tom Arnold, Rhea Perlman, Leonor Varela, and Galen Howard. This has an unexpected intensely vibrant look to it, which thankfully softens up once they leave the circus. It might be charming? Take a look.

Can Kate McKinnon reclaim her Emmy crown from Alex Borstein? 2 Experts think so

Can Kate McKinnon reclaim her Emmy crown from Alex Borstein? 2 Experts think so
Last year, Kate McKinnon‘s Emmy three-peat was derailed by Alex Borstein (“The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel”), who took home the Best Comedy Supporting Actress statuette. After “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” made killing at the guilds earlier this year, including sweeping the comedy prizes at the Screen Actors Guild Awards, Borstein looks solid to repeat and in fact tops our odds. But two of our Experts feel she is entirely beatable — by none other than McKinnon herself.

Thelma Adams (Gold Derby) and Anne Thompson (IndieWire) are picking the “Saturday Night Live” star to reclaim her crown. McKinnon is in second place in our odds, at 9/2 to Borstein’s 71/20.

This would be a minor upset — as minor as you can get with a two-time winner. “SNL” is no longer riding the heat of the lead-up and immediate aftermath of the presidential election, which no doubt carried McKinnon to her victories in 2016 and ’17. And McKinnon,

Bo Report: Keanu Reeves kicks butt in third ‘John Wick’ edition

‘John Wick: Chapter 3: Parabellum.

Defying the law of diminishing returns for sequels, the latest iteration of Lionsgate’s John Wick franchise made more money in its first weekend in Australia than the lifetime total of the previous edition.

Meanwhile Disney/Marvel’s Avengers: Endgame set new milestones in the Us and internationally and Wayne Blair’s Top End Wedding maintained momentum in its third weekend.

Bollywood romantic comedy De De Pyaar De had a respectable debut while Mike Leigh’s Peterloo and Spanish thriller The Realm tanked.

The top 20 titles generated $14.4 million, 13 per cent down on the previous weekend, according to Numero.

Released by Studiocanal, John Wick: Chapter 3 — Parabellum grabbed $4.1 million on 260 locations and $4.3 million including previews. That eclipsed the predecessor which opened with $1.8 million in 2017 and ended up with $4.25 million.

Film Review: ‘Poms’ Stumbles and Fumbles Through a Stale Routine

Chicago – There is an undeniable amount of skill and talent that goes into cheerleading. I happen to be rhythmically challenged so I am in awe of anyone, regardless of age, who can keep a beat while doing any sort of choreography. “Poms” promised to keep in step with a fresh premise, an all-star cast, and a new perspective on this tried-and-true genre but it tumbles along the way.

Rating: 1.0/5.0

There is a temerity in the film that is rarely broken by the few hilarious, outrageous moments throughout. These moments are what the film was starved for because they were the only parts of the film that actually subverted the genre. The rest took the predictable route of joints aches and back pain. Co-writers Shane Atkinson and Zara Hayes both make their feature film screenplay debut, which is a major detriment to a film that could have used not only a

'Avengers: Endgame' holds off 'Pokémon Detective Pikachu in North America to surge past $700m

Four new releases break into top 10.

Avengers: Endgame delivered the fourth best third weekend at the North American box office to cross $700m and held off Warner Bros’ new arrival Pokémon Detective Pikachu in second place.

Warner Bros’ family animation opened on $58m in 4,202 sites as part of an impressive global debut that raised the early running total to $170.4m.

Neon scored the highest per-site average of the year-to-date as the documentary The Biggest Little Farm arrived at number 24 on $101,012 in five venues for a $10,202 average.

Bo Report: ‘Avengers’ beats ‘Pokémon’ movie, ‘Top End Wedding’ holds strong

‘Top End Wedding.’

Pokémon fans flocked to the franchise’s second movie in 20 years last weekend but even more people were keen to see Disney/Marvel’s Avengers: Endgame, which reigned again in its third frame.

Meanwhile word-of-mouth is paying off for Universal’s Top End Wedding, which eased by just 22 per cent in its second weekend.

Universal’s comedy The Hustle, a female reboot of Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, over-indexed its Us opening, probably due to co-star Rebel Wilson.

Roadshow’s Poms, an ensemble comedy about seniors in a retirement home who form a cheer-leading squad, had little to cheer about, unwisely scheduled against The Hustle.

A passion project for Kenneth Branagh, Sony’s Shakespearean drama All is True had a respectable debut on limited screens. Of the two new Indian releases, Maharshi proved far more appealing than Student Of The Year 2.

The top 20 titles generated $16.5 million, down 9 per cent

Poms Director Zara Hayes: 'This Isn’t Bring It On Senior Style'

  • CineMovie
Screen icons Diane Keaton, Pam Grier, Jacki Weaver and Rhea Perlman form a cheerleading squad for their senior living facility in Poms. The story may be far-fetched, but British filmmaker Zara Hayes came across photographs of a real-life senior citizen cheerleading team. She was inspired to make a movie about these women but she resisted the urge to make it a Bring It On version. Luckily for the actors, backflips and high jumps were not part of their routine but cheering in unison still had its challenges.

‘Avengers: Endgame’ Looks to Fend Off ‘Detective Pikachu’ With $68 Million
When it comes to the box office, the Avengers’ moves are still super effective.

“Avengers: Endgame” is heading for around $68 million in its third weekend in North America, fending off the opening of “Pokémon Detective Pikachu” with about $55 million, early estimates showed Friday.

The opening of revenge comedy “The Hustle,” starring Rebel Wilson and Anne Hathaway, is performing at the top of expectations with about $14 million while the launch of Diane Keaton’s cheerleader comedy “Poms” is headed for the low end of forecasts with about $7 million to $8 million. Fox Searchlight’s “Tolkien” is showing little traction in its launch with about $3 million.

“Endgame” is heading into the weekend with $660.4 million in its first two weeks in North America and should wind up the frame with a total of around $725 million. The would leave it behind only two titles on the all-time domestic chart: “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” at

Rhea Perlman Says She'll Never Divorce Ex Danny DeVito Despite Their Separation: 'What For?'
Rhea Perlman isn’t interested in cementing her single status.

The Poms actress, 71, opened up about why she would never divorce her ex Danny DeVito on Thursday while on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen. She got candid when a fan called in and asked her why it was easy for her and the actor to remain friends.

She continued, “You know, we were together for 40 years.
