Emma Thompson Forgives Helena Bonham Carter for Affair with Kenneth Branagh

Emma Thompson, Helena Bonham Carter

Nearly 20 years after their split, Emma Thompson says she forgives Helena Bonham Carter for having an affair with her husband Kenneth Branagh.

"[It's] all blood under the bridge," Thompson told theU.K.'s SundayTimes. "You can't hold on to anything like that. I just think . . . pfft. It's pointless. I haven't got the energy for it. Helena and I made our peace years and years ago."

Dominic West and Helena Bonham Carter Bring Burton and Taylor Back to Life

Dominic West and Helena Bonham Carter

People who actually knew Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton never called them Liz and Dick. The late actors abhorred the tabloid shorthand. They nicknamed each other Lumpy (referring to her body) and Pockmark (referring to his face). Acquaintances addressed them as Richard and Elizabeth. Otherwise, it was Mr. Burton and Ms. Taylor, thank you.

Wednesday Playlist: A Toy Story Special, Burton and Taylor, EPIX Gets Schooled

Toy Story of Terror

It's Scream with playthings. A scream and a hoot, to be precise. And the first real event of the Halloween season, deserving to become an annual family tradition right up there with It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown — which ABC is holding until Halloween night itself. Disney Pixar's first made-for-TV special, ABC's Toy Story of TERROR! (Wednesday, 8/7c), is a delightful half-hour vignette of gags, action and self-empowerment, couching its never-give-up message in terrific non-stop entertainment. Tom Hanks and Tim Allen are back as Woody and Buzz, along with such other iconic fan faves as Don Rickles' Mr. Potato Head and Wallace Shawn's anxious dinosaur Rex, but the focus is on cowgirl Jessie (Joan Cusack), who has to face her abandonment issues and fear of being boxed up alone when one by one, her pals keep disappearing from a shady roadside motel where their owner Bonnie (and her mom) are staying overnight.

Burton and Taylor vs. Liz & Dick: A Serious Scientific Comparison

Dominic West and Helena Bonham Carter

It's the battle of the biopics!

Last fall, Lifetimes premiered Lindsay Lohan's "comeback" film Liz & Dick, chronicling Elizabeth Taylor's romance with Richard Burton. Now BBC has responded with its own version of the couple's tumultuous relationship, Burton and Taylor. So is the latest take on the infamous couple actually any better than the Lifetime bomb? Let's take a look:

The Scoop on Dark Shadows From Tim Burton, Helena Bonham-Carter and The Original Cast

Johnny Depp

More than 40 years before True Blood and Twilight made angst-ridden vampires the hot new thing, there was a wicked little afternoon soap called Dark Shadows. At its center was Barnabas Collins, a brooding bloodsucker played with equal parts torment and relish by Jonathan Frid, and if you were an offbeat kid in the late 1960s there's a good chance you raced home from school to watch it. Tim Burton, the acclaimed director, was one of those eager young fans. And now he's put his own spin on things. His movie version of Dark Shadows opens May 11 with a starry cast headed by Johnny Depp — yet another boyhood buff of the soap — as the reluctant, guilt-ridden and immortally sexy Barnabas.

Weekend TV Reviews: Simpsons' 500th, Downton Finale, a New Race and More

Art Velez and JJ Carrell

Where would TV be without The Simpsons? Thankfully, it will still be a while before we'll ever have to find out. With no end in sight, Fox's landmark animated hit celebrates "the most meaningless milestone of all!" — their words — with Sunday's 500th episode (8/7c), a remarkable run by anyone's measure. Even if you've been taking this show for granted the last few years, or possibly decade, you don't want to miss — though you might want to record — the dazzling opening sequence, a kaleidoscopic montage showing the Simpsons' evolution from no-def to Hi-Def, with more couch gags than the eye and brain can process.

Alan Cumming Returns to Host the Britannia Awards: "It Keeps Me on My Toes"

Alan Cumming

Alan Cumming is a perfect choice to host the 2011 Britannia Awards (Sunday at 8/7c on TV Guide Network). I mean, the man won a Tony Award for playing an emcee (for Cabaret in 1998)! Plus, the Scottish actor has other skills relevant to the gig — just ask him. "I'm a little bit cheeky and a little bit mischievous," he says. "I'm quite good on my feet."

It's a good thing too, because Cumming's packed schedule — including his ongoing gig on The Good Wife, which shoots in New York — made it difficult to find time to fly to Los Angeles to host the show, let alone prepare what he will say. "It kind of keeps me on my toes and kind of feels like doing theater without having to do a play for six months," he says. "I have no script yet, but I enjoy the last minute-ness of it."

Cumming promises that he won't be nearly as controversial as that other biting awards show host from across the pond. "I think it's a Scottish thing to... read more
