44 minutes ago | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

The four-day Free Speech Week organized by Milo Yiannopoulos at the University of California at Berkeley is in chaos just days before it is scheduled to begin, as headliner Ann Coulter canceled and student organizers dropped their reservations for campus buildings. Coulter told the Associated Press on Friday that she decided to back out of the Sept. 24-27 conservative speakers forum because she heard “the administration was dead set on blocking this event” — an assertion university administrators flatly denied. “I also don’t think Berkeley deserves to hear a brilliant and entertaining Ann Coulter speech,” Coulter told the AP via email. »

1 hour ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

USA Network and Oxygen have cut a deal for the rerun rights to NBC’s “Chicago P.D.

The drama series hails from producer Dick Wolf’s prolific Wolf Entertainment banner based at Universal Television. The series is heading into its fifth season its NBC.

Many Republicans freaked out that President Trump reached across the political aisle to cut a Daca deal with Democrats earlier this month, but Bill Maher says it’s really not that complicated — all you have to do is read the children’s book “The City Mouse and the Country Mouse.” “Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi, they’re city mice, and that’s who a consummate New Yorker like Donald Trump relates to,” Maher said on Friday night’s “Real Time.” “It’s not political. It’s just that for the first 70 years of his life he would never be caught »

3 hours ago | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

As promised, new Academy president John Bailey, a long-time and passionate voter on the foreign language committee, has pushed through some long-awaited changes in the voting rules. It’s meant to be simpler; here’s how the new system works.

By the October 2 deadline, the Academy expects some 90 foreign entries. These will be divided into multiple lists (the number is Tbd; last year, there were four); committee participants (volunteers from all 17 Academy branches) are each assigned a list. They are required to watch all of the films on their assigned list at one of two screening rooms in L.A. They can see as many films on other lists as they like, and will receive full credit for each movie they screen. (Previously, a committee member had to watch a given percentage of films to qualify for voting.)

The Academy acknowledges that many questions about the actual breakdown of lists »

If advisors were hoping Donald Trump would tone down his rhetoric about North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Un, they were likely disappointed tonight by the President’s appearance at a rally in Alabama Friday night. During his speech at a rally for Gop Senate candidate Luther Strange, Trump repeated his “Rocket Man” jab at Kim, and blamed former Democratic presidents Barack Obama and Bill Clinton for rising tensions between the U.S. and North Korea. “Rocket Man should’ve been handled a long time ago by Clinton,” Trump said, adding that “I’m not gonna mention the Republicans,” apparently letting George W. Bush off the hook. »
