Critics’ Choice Awards Live Blog Party

Critics-Choice-Awards-Lineup

The media is going gaga over Sunday’s Golden Globes, but let’s not get ahead of ourselves, people. Do the Globes have Nick Jonas & The Administration as its house band? Do the Globes have Adam Lambert and Sarah Silverman presenting an award together? Are John Krasinski, Amy Poehler and Death Cab for Cutie paying tribute to John Hughes at the Golden Globes? True, the Globes have funnyman Ricky Gervais as its host, but is he as easy on the eyes as funny girl and Critics’ Choice host Kristin Chenoweth? Of course not!

That’s why you’ll want to watch VH1 tonight (Fri., Jan. 16) and join our Critics’ Choice Movie Awards Live Blog Party right here or via mobile by texting PARTY to 22422. Blogging along with us are our pals Moviefone, The Envelope, The Huffington Post, TheFABlife and fashion experts Refinery29.

Expect to see most actors nominated for a Critics’ Choice Award at the show (we’re talking A-listers at the George Clooney/Meryl Streep/Matt Damon level), plus a lineup of presenters that includes Kristen Bell, Emily Blunt, Bradley Cooper, Josh Duhamel, Zac Efron, Vera Farmiga, Heather Graham, Samuel L. Jackson, Tobey Maguire, Amy Poehler, Zoe Saldana and Susan Sarandon. Critics’ Choice is known as the best barometer for who will win at the Academy Awards. So use tonight to start filling out your Oscar ballots.

Get Fixed on NBC’s “Mercy”, Tonight at 8 PM!

NBC MERCY

Tonight, NBC debuts its latest in a long history of exciting medical dramas — only now, with more ladies! — called Mercy (“Like ER, But With a Lot More Ms, Cs and Ys.”) The show was born from the mind of Liz Heldens, who has already won your heart as the creator of Friday Night Lights. Mercy chronicles the daily lives of those hospital employees you actually see and talk to and manage to deal with: The nurses.

The star of the show, Nurse Veronica Flanagan Callahan (played by Taylor Schilling in her most Irish, multi-named role ever) has just returned to Mercy Hospital following a tour in Iraq. And wouldn’t you know it? Turns out she’s smarter than most of the doctors. Ain’t it always that way?

Together with fellow nurses Sonia “Spicy Hispanic” Jimenez (Jaime Lee Kirchner from FX’s Rescue Me), and Chloe Payne “In Everyone’s Ass (Probably)” (Gossip Girl’s Michelle Trachtenberg), they manage the daily aspects of such an often traumatic job with the finer points of their own personal lives. In other words, they’ll each probably sleep with one of the doctors at some point and maybe even each other (also known as “The 4th Season Switcheroo”). And don’t even front, you know you love that.

Watch the premiere of “Mercy“, tonight at 8 PM ET, only on NBC!

15 Mad Men Cameos We’d Like to See

by Michael Cyril Creighton

IntroMCCmadmenpicPostVOTE HERE: http://madmencastingcall.amctv.com/photos/view/1287/sort:Photo.score

Well, Hello. Remember me? Michael Cyril Creighton AKA MCC, , your ol’ pal from the  Best Night Ever podcast.

I’ve missed you.

It’s no secret Mad Men is fantastic and I am dripping with excitement about it’s third season starting on August 16.  Oh, to be part of that booze ridden, adultery filled, nicotine drenched world. I dream about it.  And in comes the Banana Republic Mad Men Casting Call Contest, which offers the opportunity to win a walk on role on Mad Men by submitting a photo of yourself online.

See, when auditioning for roles in person, I often inadvertently drool on myself, twitch, and get a shaky voice that sounds somewhat like a seal in heat. So, I have resorted to trying to win roles the good old fashioned way… on The Internet. I’ll own it.  I figure I should put that very expensive BFA in Acting to good use, and let myself be judged solely on the way I look.

This walk on role on Mad Men could lead to so many other things. Perhaps I could play a dead victim of arson and/or sodomy on any of The Law & Orders. A sad frumpy orderly gnawing on a severed foot in the background of Nurse Jackie. Become the 6th Housewife on The Real Housewives of NJ. Perhaps I could learn to smile again. Anything.

I did not realize how stiff the competition would be. I look through the other contestants daily. While it is hard to pick out the best ones, and there are certainly many fantastic photographs, I have come up with 15 of my favorite competitors.

I also have taken it up on myself (you are welcome Matthew Weiner, very welcome) to give them names,  create story lines for them, and give them a line.

Enjoy….and be warned. Some spoilers may ensue.

1. BETTY’s  UNCLE SHERMAN comes to visit the Draper’s.

HIS LINE: “No, go out. I’ll watch the kids.”

2. SALVATORE ROMANO makes a new friend, TREY

HIS LINE: “Nice loafers.”

BWE Writers Room: As If Cupcakes Weren’t Already Depressing Enough…

BWE Writers Room: I’ll Take Alex Trebek’s Wardrobe For $400

Alex Trebek is a man who knows how to wear a suit and wear it right! Little did we know, the man likes to dress it down for a casual weekend. During a recent episode of Jeopardy, Alex showed off his wheels, but really it was excuse to model his ultra-hip Levi’s 501s he got back in ’84.

Bonus points if you spot the typo in this clip.

BWE Writers Room: Real Housewife Is Really Scared Of Sending Daughter To Europe

Dina from The Real Housewives of New Jersey is afraid to send her daughter to Europe because her grandma apparently got Lyme disease from Germany. The joke is on Dina, though. Most people in Germany refuse to send their kids to the U.S. for fear of what they’ll catch in Jersey. They consider big hair syndrome a medical condition over there.

BWE Writers Room: Spencer Pratt Messed With The Wrong Frangela

It may not look like it, but NBC’s mini series I’m a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here is actually a deeply layered made-for-TV adaptation of Joseph Conrad’s The Heart of Darkness starring Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag. If you’ve never read it, it’s really just a book about what happens when someone removes all your shampoo bottle labels deep in the jungle. High school students, don’t bother reading the novel and just write your book report based on this clip, starring Best Week Ever alums Frangela:

You can’t blame Heidi for getting upset. Those shampoo bottles were in her family for centuries. For more on this momentous television event, watch Best Week Ever with Paul F. Tompkins this Friday at 11pm on VH1.

BWE Writers Room: Two Year Old Pool Ace Stars In The Color of Boogers

Remember that scene in The Color of Money where Paul Newman tells Tom Cruise to stop picking his nose in the pool hall? Neither do we. But don’t tell that to Keith O’Dell Jr., the two year old pool ace who didn’t hesitate to mine for a few nose goblins on BOTH Good Morning America and the Today Show this morning. It’s an intimidating move by Keith. No matter how good you are at billiards, no one is going to want to move to cue ball after he’s done with it. This kid is a natural born hustler.
