The end of August is supposed to be the dog days of summer, a time when things go quiet and everyone is off on vacation relaxing. But it seems no one told Los Angeles that! Perhaps it is because we have summer weather most of the year, but no matter what the reason, the weekend of August 22 to 24 was so jam-packed with parties, concerts and fancy food events that there was no possible way to do it all.   Read More...

The reason episodes are listed in some places below is that Emmy voters do not have to watch an entire season of a show, only the episodes submitted for consideration. As it turned out, in 15 of the 24 categories my predicted winners were who I preferred. However, as I stated in my article, there were quite a few additional actors and shows I would have had on my list.   Read More...

Snakes and stage slips: There's drama and the MTV Video Music Awards haven't even begun yet. Days before the big show, Iggy Azalea slipped offstage while performing "Fancy" at a MTV benefit concert, later posting the video on Instagram and making fun of herself. More seriously, a 6-foot-long boa constrictor bit a background dancer during a rehearsal for Nicki Minaj's performance of "Anaconda"   Read More...

It's a sure sign that something big is happening when the Audi A8 L TDI sedans start to roll into West Hollywood, each one branded with the Television Academy's Emmy Awards logo. As main sponsors of the big show (and key transport to the stars that night) for the last four years, Audi loves to put on a pre-show celebration of their own, as they take over Cecconi's restaurant in West Hollywood and pull out all the stops.   Read More...

A giant yellow duck - which, hands down, was the show stopper when it sailed in Wednesday for San Pedro's Tall Ships Festival - turned out to be just a little too popular. On Thursday, the six-story, 11-ton floating bath toy was towed north to the World Cruise Center - closer to where the visiting ships and vendors were set up for the five-day festival - to ensure that the duck wouldn't steal all the festival business.   Read More...

'Tis clearly the season for exceedingly attractive young adults in mortal peril. Just two months ago, we had the charming Shailene Woodley as a teen cancer patient, fighting for time while learning about life and love in "The Fault in Our Stars." Last week, we had Aussie heartthrob Brenton Thwaites in "The Giver," risking his life for the sake of truth and memory.   Read More...

The black-and-white of "Sin City: A Dame to Kill For" is a clue -- or, maybe, an announcement -- not to expect much in the way of subtlety. A bold and stylish serving of ultraviolence, "Dame" is in the same graphic novel-inspired boat as the first "Sin City" and, like it, features semi-big names playing tough guys and pretty ladies who kiss and, more often, kill each other.   Read More...
