Lisa Kudrow Talks 'Web Therapy' on 'Late Late Show'Of Meryl Streep, Lisa Kudrow says, "There's nothing she can't do." Many people share the sentiment about the multi-Oscar winner, who plays sexual orientation therapist Camilla Bowner on Kudrow's online improv series 'Web Therapy.'

"Oh, I don't know about that," protests Craig Ferguson on 'The Late Late Show' (weeknights, 12:37AM ET on CBS). "What about... microsurgery?"

Kudrow has no doubt. "She's a smartypants, too," she says, then reconsiders the description and adds, "That was a little disrespectful!" Kudrow apologizes to Streep, but the host assures her the film star isn't watching the program.

Jack Nicholson Makes a Weird Speech at 'The AFI Life Achievement Award' (VIDEO)

Jack Nicholson Makes a Weird Speech at 'The AFI Life Achievement Award'The stars came out to honor a great director at 'The AFI Life Achievement Award 2010: Mike Nichols' (Sat., 9PM ET on TV Land). Famed director Mike Nichols has been making films for more than five decades now, and during that time, he's made a lot of friends in the industry. Among the celebs in attendance were Tom Hanks, Dustin Hoffman, Harrison Ford, Julia Roberts, Jack Nicholson and Meryl Streep.

It was a night of praise for the creator of such classic films as 'The Graduate,' 'Working Girl' and 'Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?' "You're more than a great director," Dustin Hoffman said to his friend. "You're a real artist down to your toes."

The one puzzling speech of the night came from Jack Nicholson -- who arrived late to the ceremony to begin with. "This is so wonderful what everyone is saying about you," Jack told the director. But the actor then continued with this head-scratching comment: "I have to say, remember, Mike: even oysters have enemies."

Huh? Say what now? "Even oysters have enemies?" If anyone figures out exactly what that means, please do let us know.

Sandra Bullock and Meryl Streep Kiss, Letterman Wants Answers (VIDEO)

by Jane Boursaw, posted Feb 9th 2010 6:26AM
David Letterman: Sandra Bullock and Meryl Streep KissIt's one thing for actresses to peck each other on the lips in friendly greeting, another thing entirely when one lunges at the other with an open mouth. That's what happened with Sandra Bullock and Meryl Streep, and David Letterman had the photos to prove it on 'Late Show with David Letterman' (weeknights, 11:35PM on CBS).

"I guess that's the kind of thing you people do out in Hollywood," said Letterman. Ever quick on her feet, Bullock shot back, "And I suppose you've never kissed a woman before, Dave, right?"

Meryl Streep, Michael Douglas Join History Documentary

by Leonard Jacobs, posted Dec 10th 2009 12:50PM
Though the U.S. is a young nation -- just 233 years old if you trace it back to the Declaration of Independence in 1776 -- the settling of the continent goes back four centuries or more.

With that in mind, the History Channel will premiere 'America: The Story of Us' in 2010, an epic 12-part series examining how this nation of average citizens, not royalty, have determined its course from the very beginning.

According to Variety, Meryl Streep and Michael Douglas are among a starry list of narrators confirmed for the series, which draws talent from Hollywood and politics. Other narrators will include former Secretary of StateColin Powell and NBC anchor Brian Williams.

NBC to adapt UK's Prime Suspect

by Allison Waldman, posted Sep 3rd 2009 2:08PM
Helen_Mirren_Prime_SuspectIs it cynical of me to question the wisdom of NBC trying to adapt the British detective series Prime Suspect for American TV? It probably is, but after the disappointment of Life on Mars (I know, some of you liked the ABC version, but I was not in that camp), I have worries about the way American writers and producers rework excellent British TV shows and suck the life out of them in the process.

What makes Prime Suspect particularly of concern is that the British show had a great actress starring in it. Helen Mirren has deserved every award -- Oscar, Tony, Golden Globe -- that she's received. As the tough-as-nails detective chief inspector Jane Tennison, she was simply amazing.

How Dan Aykroyd stole Julie & Julia from Meryl Streep

by Allison Waldman, posted Aug 13th 2009 3:00PM

Two-time Oscar winner Meryl Streep does an amazing job of bringing Julia Child to life in the new movie Julie & Julia. Watch the clips that Bob posted recently and you'll understand why I'm sure this film will earn Ms. Meryl another Oscar nomination. That will be number 16, breaking her record of 15 nominations thus far.

But did you know that Dan Aykroyd steals the movie right out from under Meryl Streep's nose ... not to mention Amy Adams, too? It's true. Director Nora Ephron wisely included the famous Saturday Night Live sketch called The French Chef, in which Dan masterfully skewered Julia's TV show. The cry, "Save the liver" is still one of the funniest lines I've ever heard -- and still use when the occasion calls for it!

Julia and Meryl's Julia

by Bob Sassone, posted Aug 7th 2009 1:23PM
Julie and Julia opens today, so I thought it would be fun to compare the real Julia Child with Meryl Streep's movie version. Below are two videos. The first is the real Julia Child making an omelet on her show The French Chef, and the second is a clip from the movie.

Child had a deeper voice than most impersonators would have you believe, but it looks like Streep does a good job.

Oscars 2009: What worked vs. what didn't

by Allison Waldman, posted Feb 23rd 2009 12:02PM
It was the best of Oscar it was the worst of Oscar. It wasn't the best show I've ever seen, but was it the worst Oscars ever as one friend emailed me? I think there were features that worked and features that tanked. There could have been more star power -- where were Tom Hanks, George Clooney, Jim Carrey, Sandra Bullock, Christian Bale, Tyler Perry (he had the biggest box office opening last week!), etc.? Forget about stars from the '70s...

Anyway, I had predicted that the Oscars would stink. Well, I was wrong, or half-wrong. Separate from whether you agreed with the winners -- I did by and large -- or you didn't, what about the broadcast? I think if you had seen all the nominees (or at least the Best Picture noms), you probably had a rooting interest and were amused by most of the show. However, the other half was pretty bad. After the jump, what worked versus what did not.

Christina Applegate suffering from breast cancer

by Kona Gallagher, posted Aug 3rd 2008 4:02PM
christina applegateChristina Applegate, star of ABC's Samantha Who?, is battling breast cancer. According to a statement released by her rep, the cancer was detected early and is not life-threatening. "Christina is following the recommended treatment of her doctors and will have a full recovery," Ame Van Iden said.

The news comes just weeks after Applegate earned an Emmy nomination for her work as an amnesiac trying to undo her past misdeeds on Samantha Who?. In addition to continuing to work on her series, Applegate is also scheduled to appear on the Stand Up To Cancer telethon on September 5th. The telethon, which will be simultaneously aired on CBS, NBC and ABC, will also feature Meryl Streep, Sally Field and Jennifer Aniston, among others.

Since the cancer was detected early through a doctor-ordered MRI and Applegate is continuing her work schedule, hopefully the cancer will be easily beat. Here's to a full and speedy recovery.

The Daily Show: October 16, 2007

by Annie Wu, posted Oct 17th 2007 9:02AM
Meryl Streep"Clusterf@#k to the White House": Fred Thompson is Frankenberry and Barack Obama is Batman. FACT. Another good fact to note is that Rudy Giuliani's 9/11 sex dreams are absolutely terrifying. I was surprisingly grossed out by the cartoon image of the 9 giving it to the 11. Maybe it was because the 11 looked like it was enjoying it too much. Yeah.

Okay, so who gives a darn about the real candidates (or number sex)?! Let's move on. Super-special announcement! Stephen Colbert rolled in to the studio and attacked the Daily Show crowd. God, I'm so jealous of that audience. Screw you, October 16th Daily Show audience, screw you. Oh, sorry, that wasn't the announcement. The announcement was what Stephen said once he sat down and cracked open a beer. He's definitely going to consider running for President!... in the South Carolina primaries. He elaborated later on the Colbert Report that he's doing it as a "favorite son". NoFactZone.net has got this business covered, transcript and all. Also, I must commend the show for their use of the waving flag on the screen behind Stephen. Nice touch.

Why we worship Joss Whedon -- VIDEO!

by Anna Johns, posted Jul 13th 2006 3:50PM
joss whedonFans of Joss Whedon know he is very active in the charity organization called Equality Now, which "works to end violence and discrimination against women and girls around the world." He recently was honored by the organization for his work and for the awesome female characters he has created in all of his television shows and movies. After being introduced by Meryl Streep, Joss gives a great speech explaining why he writes women characters so well. It's clever, funny, and so very Joss Whedon. It's also inspirational as it takes a stab at Hollywood and stupid reporters. I think he gives the whole speech without any notes. (You may have already seen this since it's been on YouTube since June, but it was new to me)

king kong turnerTurner Broadcasting just inked a deal with NBC Universal that puts a bunch of movies, including this winter's King Kong, on its networks in 2008. Not sure if the NBC network had the first right of refusal on that movie, but you would think so.

Along with King Kong, Turner also bought the rights to air these movies in 2008:

  • The Ice Harvest, starring Billy Bob Thornton and John Cusack;
  • Doom, starring The Rock;
  • Two for the Money, starring Al Pacino and Matthew McConaughey;
  • Prime, starring Meryl Streep and Uma Thurman.
