At the Golden Globes last weekend, host Ricky Gervais kept talking about how this was the last time he would be on stage for the awards ceremony, and he didn’t care about it at all. The Hollywood Foreign Press Association has taken him at his word, and next year they’ll bring back two talents who have proven to be much more beloved in their hosting duties.
The Saturday Night Live dynamic duo of Amy Poehler and Tina Fey will be returning to host the 78th Golden Globes for the 2021 ceremony. The two previously hosted together in 2013, 2014 and 2015, and they were praised across the board for bringing some life to the awards and tag-teaming the show with some big laughs. Read More »

When the soul of jazz musician Joe Gardner ends up being separated from his body (he’s apparently not dead, at least according to the official synopsis), he finds himself transported to the place where our souls originate before finding their ways into our bodies.

Next year, Pixar Animation will be bringing two original movies to theaters. It’ll be the first time they haven’t released a sequel in a calendar year since 2015. Onward arrives first in March, but then summer brings a new movie that was announced earlier this year, and we’ve got a new look at it.
Soul, directed by Inside Out and Up helmer Pete Docter, follows Joe Gardner (voiced by Jamie Foxx), an aging middle school music teacher who has long dreamed of performing jazz music on stage. Gardner gets his chance when he’s booked as the opening act at the Half Note Club, a real jazz club in New York City. But his jazz debut is put in jeopardy when an accident causes his soul to be separated from his body, sending him to the “You Seminar,” a place where souls develop and gain passions before being placed in a newborn child. Check out the first official Pixar Soul photo below. Read More »
What the world needs now is another ensemble romantic-comedy that looks like it could get dangerously cheesy. But in all seriousness, Modern Love looks like a promising Amazon anthology series, despite the familiar trappings of every other star-powered ensemble comedy that tried to replicate the success of Love, Actually.
