Steve Martin, Angelina Jolie and Angela Lansbury were awarded honorary Oscars at the Governors Awards Saturday night.
Carol Burnett was awarded the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor, the country's top humor honor, over the weekend.
"This is very encouraging," Burnett said in her acceptance speech, The Associated Press reports. "It was a long time in coming, but I understand because there are so many people funnier than I am, especially here in Washington. With any luck, they'll soon get voted out, and I'll still have the Mark Twain prize."
Fox has given a series order to Mulaney, a new ensemble comedy from comedian John Mulaney and Saturday Night Live showrunner Lorne Michaels.
Orange is the New Black
Remakes (House of Cards) and reboots (Arrested Development) are one way to go when establishing a brand — let's just forget about the atrocious Hemlock Grove for now — but with Orange Is the New Black, Netflix finally achieves its eureka moment with a terrifically entertaining piece of original programming that's truly and bracingly original.
The setting, an upstate New York women's prison, isn't all that new, but Orange — adapted by Weeds' Jenji Kohan from a memoir by Piper Kerman — makes it fresh by mining a deep vein of absurdist humor with an unexpectedly generous empathy for the outrageous characters its overwhelmed heroine encounters in her nightmare odyssey behind bars. When anxious Piper Chapman (a wryly understated and immediately sympathetic Taylor Schilling) is being processed to start her 15-month sentence, she's assured this isn't OZ — and it also isn't Chained (or Caged) Heat. This show is much cooler than that.
Justin Timberlake returned to Saturday Night Live this week, but he wasn't the only familiar face making a comeback. The show also featured cameos from Alec Baldwin, Steve Martin, Tom Hanks, Dan Aykroyd, Paul Simon, Chevy Chase, Martin Short, recently departed cast member Andy Samberg, and Bill Hader's "Weekend Update" character, Stefon. Here are some of the best moments from the show:
Evil casts a long shadow over BBC America's promising new thriller Ripper Street (Saturday, 9/8c). Set amid the grimy slums of London's Whitechapel district in the immediate wake of Jack the Ripper's reign of slaughter, this absorbing 19th-century procedural depicts police work complicated by widespread public panic that each new murder might herald the return of the phantom fiend.
Paul McCartney and Martin Short
For once, Saturday Night Live's cold opening was no laughing matter. A day after the Sandy Hook Elementary massacre — which killed 20 children and six adults — the show opened with the New York City Children's Chorus performing a moving version of "Silent Night"...
