    "45 Jokes About My Dead Dad": This Week in Comedy

    This week in Cheap Laughs, we have grind-core rawness, hyperdermic madness, kitschy gladness, marital slackness, trophy wackness, gateway drugs, and Andy Kaufman's jacket. Also, special mention for The PIT's four-day sketch comedy festival, which is taking over their 24th Street theater from Thursda ... More >>

    21 Movie Romances That We Loved in 2013

    In 2013, love came in many forms: girl on zombie, boy on smartphone, and James Franco on -- count 'em -- two hot bikini babes at the same damn time. Sure, romantic comedies are as extinct as Oprah Winfrey's chances of winning Best Supporting Actress at the Golden Globes, but audiences had plenty of ... More >>

    Lena Dunham Nominated For a Webby Because Lena Dunham is Everywhere

    The past year has been a big one for Lena Dunham, to say the least. Her HBO series became the most talked about show on television, and the 26 year-old renaissance woman (or girl) quickly became a "voice of her generation," as her alterego Hannah Horvath would phrase it. She won two Golden Globes. S ... More >>

    The Anne Hathaway Hate Is Dwindling

    There was a growing anti-Anne Hathaway sentiment on the part of the bitchy (and often accurate) people who populate the gossip boards in the last several months. They felt her Les Miz performance was a little too conscious of its own power, and started resenting the tour-de-force of a cute person s ... More >>

    Could Argo Win Just One Oscar?

    Meaning the Big One. Argo has been picking up so much steam lately--it copped the PGA, the Golden Globe, and the SAG--that it's looking like a much healthier Best Picture Oscar candidate than it did when they snubbed Ben Affleck for a Best Director nomination. As has been pointed out, Hollywood li ... More >>

    Will Jennifer Lawrence Be The Youngest Best Actress Oscar Winner, If She Wins?

    Quvenchane Wallis will be the youngest anything if she wins. But let's talk about Jennifer Lawrence. She was nominated before, for Winter's Bone, when she was even younger. She's in the huge franchise The Hunger Games, which will surely pay for her old age. And in the meantime, she's nominated for ... More >>

    New Hope For Ben Affleck and Argo?

    Ben Affleck was surprisingly shut out of an Oscar nomination for Best Director last week, but he's not down yet. He stunned all the experts by copping Best Picture and Best Director at last night's Golden Globes as Lincoln looked distinctly un-Presidential. (As I just noted on CNN, the only award t ... More >>

    Will Seth MacFarlane Be A Good Oscar Host?

    Tina Fey and Amy Poehler were a scream as hosts of the Golden Globes last night. They were wicked, witty, and spontaneous, and added some lovely tones of mirthful mockery to the proceedings, which could otherwise bog down in self congratulation. If Seth MacFarlane can do even half as well at the Os ... More >>
