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

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

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

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!

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

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.
