Director Richard Linklater's Boyhood was the toast of Hollywood at the Golden Globes on Sunday (11Jan15) after picking up three of the night's biggest honors.
Linklater claimed the Best Director prize, while the film was named Best Motion Picture, Drama and Patricia Arquette landed the Best Supporting Actress award for her portrayal of a single mother looking for love.
Boyhood has now become a clear favorite to pick up the Best Picture Oscar after taking home a string of top gongs this awards season.
The Theory of Everything and Birdman were double winners at the Globes, while The Affair, Transparent and Fargo led the TV categories with two awards apiece.
It was also a very good night for newlyweds Eddie Redmayne, George Clooney and John Legend - Brit Redmayne picked up a Best Actor honour for his portrayal of Stephen Hawking in The Theory of Everything, John Legend was a winner for his song Glory from the movie Selma, and George Clooney took home the 2015 Cecil B. DeMille Award. Both Clooney and Redmayne paid tribute to their new brides in their acceptance speeches, with Redmayne revealing he and his wife "of about a couple of weeks" had to cut their honeymoon short to attend the prizegiving. He added, "I thank the HFPA (Hollywood Foreign Press Association) for giving us a night at the end of our honeymoon we will remember."

The beloved sitcom, The Office, was a hit not only because of the very funny Michael Scott (Steve Carell), but because the show had so much truth to it. Its characters weren't doing anything very exciting. They simply sold paper. But they mirrored the things everyone has to deal with in a workspace and made them funny.
1. Your desire to leave mandatory "parties" early.
2. Taking an unscheduled break in order to get away from doing something.
3. Watching the clock in order to leave.
4. Having to work with people you can't stand!
5. When a co-worker proposes to get crappy food for the party.
6. Awkwardly getting locked out the office, or being the last one to leave and not have a key to lock up.
7. Needing other co-workers to back you up.
8. Having to continue to work with someone you hooked up with.
9. When you're ready to head out and you have to try and blow off any more work that might come your way.
10. Getting unsolicited dating advice from co-workers.
11. Basically falling asleep during a meeting.
12. Having a little too match at the office party
13. Having one of those days where you just can't!
14. When someone says something offensive in a "tolerance" meeting held by HR.
15. When you get a not-so-highly-regarded award from work and you have to pretend you're flattered.
Greattttttt, so can I get a raise?
16. Having to deal with your co-worker's disgusting perfume or cologne.
17. You have been forced to resort to looking for professional help to deal with your difficult co-workers.
18. Getting hand-me-down items from co-workers because management is cheap.
19. Using office supplies to cut cost in your personal life.
20. Having an unpredictable boss.

In a world where celebrities are constantly bombarded with paparazzi and where every detail of their life is public information, it seems very difficult for many to keep a long-term relationship. These twelve couples are among some of the most stable and enduring celebrity pairs of our time. They defy the odds by sticking through it and often, by keeping their lives as private as they possibly can.
1. Meryl Streep and Don Gummer: 36 years
Meryl Streep opted out of marrying someone famous and married this friend of her brother. Because Meryl wanted to keep her marriage out of the spotlight, it is still very impressive how little the world knows about him. The couple have four children together, and when Meryl finally did mention him in her 2012 Oscars' acceptance speech it was adorable. "“I’m going to thank Don because when you thank your husband at the end of the speech they play him out with the music and I want him to know that everything I value most in our lives you’ve given me," she said.
2. Ozzy Osbourne and Sharon Osbourne: 32 years

This couple has had their fair share of ups and downs, but have remained together nonetheless. They met in England when Sharon's father, a music manager and concert producer, managed Black Sabbath, the band Ozzy was the lead singer of. Ozzy was kicked out of the band because of drug abuse and Sharon ended up taking him on as a client. Ozzy continued to struggle with substance abuse and was even arrested for attempting to strangle Sharon while under the influence.
3. Denzel Washington and Pauletta Washington: 31 years

According to HelloBeautiful, this couple met while co-starring in the film Wilma in 1977. Five years later, they were married and now have four children together. According to the site, Pauletta told Oprah that she fell in love with his personality first. “I thought he was cute, but I fell in love with his spirit. And then I thought, ‘Hmm, not a bad package,'" she said.
4. Jamie Lee Curtis and Christopher Guest: 29 years

According to People, Jamie first saw Christopher in a magazine when he was an actor in the spoof The is Spinal Tap. She felt an immediate connection to him. "That's why I developed my smirk—which is why, when I looked at Chris's smirk in the picture, I basically saw myself. I saw a kindred spirit," she says of seeing his photo. Jamie gave him her number through an agent and the two became bicoastal lovers soon after. They married in 1984 and have adopted two kids, Annie and Thomas.
5. Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson: 26 years

The pair originally met while Tom was still married to his college sweetheart on the set of ABC sitcom, Blossoming Buddies, when Rita guest starred for an episode. They didn't get together despite the chemistry they both felt, until after Tom's divorce in 1987. In 1988, they married and have since had two children together. "Literally, a wave of — if love is a feeling, or a cellular thing that happens to your body, it went through me, and that’s pretty much who he is, and how he’s been," Rita said of their relationship to Piers Morgan in 2012.
6. Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick: 26 years

Interestingly enough, the couple first met when Kyra was 12, at a viewing of a matinee play Kevin starred in. He was 19 at the time and nothing came of the meeting, except Kyra's brother urging her to tell him how much she enjoyed the play. Their relationship started several years later when they worked on the set of Lemon Sky together.
7. Michael J. Fox and Tracy Pollan: 26 years

This pair is especially inspirational as they have continually supported each other through a chronic illness. They met while working on Family Ties in 1985, but didn't start dating until two years later. Early on in their marriage, Michael was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease, but the couple have remained stable. "When we married, we married--and that was it. We were in love then, as we are now, and we planned to stay married," Michael told O Magazine in 2002.
8. John Travolta and Kelly Preston: 23 years

Despite losing their 16-year-old son, Jett, in 2009, the pair have stayed strong. They first met while filming The Experts, but nothing formed except for a friendship, because Kelly was married at the time. John told Redbook what he thought of her initially: "I had interest in her because even in spite of the trouble that she was having in her marriage, she was willing to stick through tough times with him, which really showed character. I just remember thinking, God, if we're ever single at the same time, I think this is really the one."
9. David Bowie and Iman: 22 years
According to Huffington Post, the rockstar and supermodel fell in love on a blind date in 1990 and were married two years later. The couple are very quiet about their life and their love story, but do have two children, Zulekha (Iman's child from a previous marriage) and Alexandria. Iman told The Independent that though David knew it was love at first sight, she was a little overwhelmed at first. “I was not ready for a relationship. Definitely, I didn't want to get into a relationship with somebody like him," she said.
10. Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos: 18 years

This beautiful couple met on the set of All My Children where they were onscreen lovers. According to People, they dated secretly for a year and then eloped in Las Vegas. In fact this photo is from their onscreen marriage, because much of their offscreen romance has been kept secret. "It just happened. The next thing you know, we're married, and then four months later we were pregnant," Consuelos told Redbook. The couple have three children.
11. Hugh Jackman and Deborra-Lee Furness: 18 years

The couple first met in 1995 in Melbourne, Australia on the set of the TV drama Correlli. They both felt initial attraction and though Hugh hesitated to propose, he overcame it and they were married a year later. "I decided, I won't ask her to marry me for six months," Jackman told Town and Country magazine. "Then after four months I thought, that's the most ridiculous rule!" The couple have two children, Oscar and Ava. "It gets better every year," Furness said.
12. Sarah Jessica Parker and Mathew Broderick: 17 years

Another couple that have successfully kept their relationship under wraps, Sarah and Matthew refuse to say much about the secrets to their success. In last year's Harper's Bazaar, Sarah did gush about him shorthly. “There’s also the reality of your life,” she said. “I love Matthew Broderick. Call me crazy, but I love him. We can only be in the marriage we are. We’re very devoted to our family and our lives. I love our life. I love that he’s the father of my children, and it’s because of him that there’s this whole other world that I love.”
Sometimes, you get stuck with a bad boss. Someone who makes you work weekends…or who, like, clips their nails at their desk. Maybe you’ve thought about quitting, but you’ve probably (we hope) never gone to extremes like the guys from Horrible Bosses 2. In honor of them – and anyone who’s ever dealt with a bad boss – here are some of the most cringeworthy bosses in movies and television.
1. Miranda Priestly (Meryl Streep) in The Devil Wears Prada
Miranda Priestly is probably the scariest kind of boss because she’s so calm about it all, even when she’s saying something completely soul-crushing.
2. Bobby Pellitt (Colin Farrell) in Horrible Bosses
Ok so there are several awful bosses in this movie, hence the title, but we're singling out Bobby because he represents nepotism, incompetence and really bad combovers. He's also a raging cocaine addict. Bad, bad, bad.
3. Bill Lumbergh (Gary Cole) in Office Space
Lumbergh is the epitome of the annoying boss. He makes his employees work weekends, he's a stickler for pointless TPS reports, and he says things like "I'm gonna need you to..." right before assigning you a mundane task.
4. Michael Scott (Steve Carell) in The Office
We love Michael Scott, but man did he make us cringe. Whether he was telling an inappropriate joke or running down one of his employees with his car, he was simply not meant to be a boss.
5. David Brent (Ricky Gervais) in The Office (UK)
David Brent had even less of a clue than Michael Scott, if that's possible. He thinks his workers look up to him as a mentor, but they really don't respect him at all.
6. Miranda Bailey (Chandra Wilson) in Grey’s Anatomy
We’ve seen Bailey’s softer side, but remember when she was known only as “The Nazi”? She kept those interns in line!
7. Margaret Tate (Sandra Bullock) in The Proposal
This Canadian boss lady forces her assistant to pretend he’s her fiancé in order to avoid deportation. Not only is that totally awkward, it’s an HR nightmare! Thankfully Ryan Reynolds was very accommodating.
8. Don Draper (Jon Hamm) in Mad Men
Granted Don Draper is good at what he does, but he’s kind of the worst boss. Just ask Peggy – she’s seen his bad side on more than one occasion. He sleeps with his secretaries, drinks during the day and takes frequent naps on the couch in his office.
9. President Snow (Donald Sutherland) in The Hunger Games
He’s the boss of an entire country and he’s completely evil. Definitely not a person you want in charge. He sends children to fight to the death basically for his own amusement.
10. Walter White (Bryan Cranston) in Breaking Bad
He wasn’t so much a boss as he was a, well, kingpin, but he still had complete control over his “employee” Jesse Pinkman. All that manipulation really made us cringe!
11. Maria Laguerta (Lauren Velez) in Dexter
Over the course of Dexter, the fiercely ambitious Laguerta went from Lieutenant to Captain of the Miami Metro Police Department and never failed to make Debra Morgan’s life a living hell.
12. Carter Duryea (Topher Grace) in In Good Company
At 26, he became the boss at an established sports magazine and was forced to manage people with way more experience than him – namely Dennis Quaid’s Dan Foreman. He was all about promoting “synergy,” despite having little to no clue what that actually meant.
13. Ron Swanson (Nick Offerman) in Parks and Recreation
Don’t get us wrong, we love everything about Ron Swanson - from his mustache to his deep and abiding love of red meat. But he works in city government and actively tries to make it less effective. Not exactly someone you want running things.
14. Jordan Belfort (Leonardo DiCaprio) in The Wolf of Wall Street
Belfort represented Wall Street corruption at its worst. He ran his firm with no ethical standards, and when he was caught, he barely got any jail time! Most cringeworthy thing about this guy is that he actually existed!

Rappers Macklemore and Q-Tip joined peaceful protests taking place across the U.S. on Monday night (24Nov14) to condemn the decision not to prosecute a police officer who killed unarmed black teenager Michael Brown.
Brown was shot and killed by police officer Darren Wilson in Ferguson, Missouri in August (14) and a jury decided on Monday that no charges should be brought against the cop. The ruling sparked outrage across the U.S. and a protest in Ferguson descended into violence and chaos.
A number of civil demonstrations took place in major cities across the country and the rappers decided to get involved.
Macklemore, real name Ben Haggerty, joined campaigners in his hometown Seattle, Washington and TV footage from local station King5 News shows the demonstrators chanting "Don't shoot" with their hands raised. When asked why he got involved, Haggerty replies, "Solidarity - it's about Mike Brown, it's not about me."
A Tribe Called Quest frontman Q-Tip used Twitter.com to discover the location of New York protesters and was later caught on camera leading chants of "Hands up don't shoot" and "Whose streets? Our streets" with campaigners.
Many celebrities took to their Twitter.com accounts on Monday night to condemn the ruling and to implore Ferguson residents to protest peacefully.
Celebrities including Katy Perry, Pharrell Williams and Cher have taken to social media to express their disappointment after a grand jury ruled against charging the police officer who killed black teenager Michael Brown.
Police officer Darren Wilson shot and killed the unarmed 18 year old in August (14) in Ferguson, Missouri, sparking a spate of protests through city.
On Monday (24Nov14), a jury decided against prosecuting Wilson over the incident and a peaceful protest encouraged by Brown's family quickly descended into violence and chaos.
Celebrities took to Twitter.com to condemn the ruling, including Katy Perry, who wrote, "Sending my prayers to Ferguson & praying for an equal America," while Happy singer Pharrell Williams, adds, "I'm heartbroken over the news of no indictment in Ferguson. Let's all pray for peace." Girls actress Lena Dunham writes, "All my love is with the family of Michael Brown. I applaud their strength and courage, mourn their loss, pray they see justice and change," and will.i.am adds, "I just found about the verdict... I feel sick to my stomach... I'm angry & confused...I feel betrayed... My heart goes out to the family of Mike Brown, the people of Ferguson and America as a whole..."
Other stars reacted to the footage of protests, looting and buildings being set on fire, and they implored campaigners to act peacefully, including pop icon Cher, who wrote, "Violence is not the answer! Vote 2 (to) change state laws... It's not (a) protest, it's crime."
Country singer Blake Shelton adds, "Breaks my heart to see all the destruction. Praying for the community," while Josh Groban states, "My thoughts are with the Ferguson community. I hope the frustration, as well as the love for the Brown family, shows itself through peace."
Fall Out Boy rocker Pete Wentz adds, "Dang just now seeing whats happening in Ferguson (sic)... As a father I can't imagine losing either of my sons. Not in this way. I cannot imagine what it would feel like, the sadness and the rage. As a country we have to do better. This is not OK," and Fast and Furious actress Michelle Rodriguez writes, "Protesters please remember that you can't act like animals and expect to be treated like civilised citizens (sic)..."
Chris Hemsworth was chosen as People’s Sexiest Man Alive this year, and we can’t really argue with that. He’s tall, blonde and handsome. He’s Australian and he plays a freakin’ god in the Marvel universe. So yes, we are very satisfied. But that doesn’t mean we can’t get a head start on next year’s choice, and boy do we have suggestions!
1. Joe Manganiello
Um. That body. Sofia Vergara knows what we’re talking about.
2. Chris Pratt
Many believed he’d take the title this year, given the success of Guardians of the Galaxy (and his workout routine), but maybe next year is his year.
3. Ryan Gosling
Even though he’s reportedly turned down the title before, we still think he’d make a great choice. He’s been making women swoon since The Notebook.
4. Michael Fassbender
Have you seen Shame? ‘Nuff said.
5. Idris Elba
We’ve yet to find one person who doesn’t find Idris Elba attractive. He needs more magazine covers, stat.
6. Jamie Dornan
He’s about to play one of the sexiest book characters – Christian Grey. Depending on how well the movie is received (and we’re betting very well), he could definitely be a contender for the title.
7. Justin Timberlake
It’s weird that Adam Levine has gotten the title, but not Justin. People should probably fix that.
8. Benedict Cumberbatch
He’s already been dubbed the “Internet’s boyfriend,” so why not make the Cumberb*tches happy?
9. Kit Harrington
Despite what’s been said on Game of Thrones, Jon Snow does know a thing or two. Like how to be all brooding and sexy.
10. Alexander Skarsgard
We miss getting our fair share of Skarsgard nudity on True Blood, but we’d gladly settle for a nice Sexiest Man Alive photo spread of this Swedish hottie.
11. Jon Hamm
Next year marks the last season of Mad Men, so it would be a fitting send-off to reward our favorite ad man with the honor of Sexiest Man Alive.
12. Michael B. Jordan
We loved him in Friday Night Lights, he was fantastic in Fruitvale Station, and next year he'll be granted superhero status in The Fantastic Four reboot. Mark our words: He's gonna be huge.
13. Leonardo DiCaprio
Much like the elusive Oscar, the title of Sexiest Man Alive has missed DiCaprio. If he’s not getting an Academy Award, at least give him this. He's not getting any younger!
14. Colin Farrell
He's one of the sexiest, most underrated actors out there. He deserves some love.
15. Liam Hemsworth
We’d be cool if People decided to keep it in the family next year.
Who would YOU choose? Tell us on Twitter!
Country star Hunter Hayes has cancelled an upcoming concert in St. Louis, Missouri after the state's governor announced a state of emergency in anticipation of the grand jury decision in the case against police officer Darren Wilson, who shot and killed an unarmed black teenager in August (14).
Governor Jay Nixon activated the U.S. National Guard on Monday (17Nov14), fearing a repeat of the race riots and hostilities that ripped through the state following Michael Brown's death in in the St. Louis suburb of Ferguson. And, with the jury's decision expected this week (ends21Nov14), Nixon has put all local police departments on alert in the event the verdict incites more violence. As a result, Hayes, who was scheduled to perform at St. Louis University on Thursday night (20Nov14), is taking precautions. A statement from his representative reads: "Out of respect for Missouri Governor Jay Nixon's declaration declaring a state of emergency in Missouri, Hunter Hayes' Thursday, November 20 show at Chaifetz Arena in St. Louis has been cancelled." Hayes plans to reschedule the concert for 2015.
Rapper Iggy Azalea proved her sense of humour was fully intact on Friday (31Oct14) by dressing up as Shawn Wayans' drag character from his 2004 comedy White Chicks for Halloween.
Cruel critics have long compared the Fancy hitmaker's looks to those of brothers Shawn and Marlon Wayans in drag, and Snoop Dogg recently hit headlines for mocking Azalea by posting one of the Internet memes on his Instagram.com page. In the caption for the side-by-side snap, he wrote, "so we just gonna ignore that fact that iggy look like marlon from white chicks (sic)".
Un vídeo publicado por Iggy Azalea (@thenewclassic) el Nov 11, 2014 at 1:43 PDT
The Australian star took issue with Snoop's post, which followed another featuring her with no make-up, and accused him of cyber bullying, but the rappers subsequently put the feud behind them with the help of Azalea's mentor, T.I. The 24 year old can now see the funny side of the fall out and on Friday, she embraced the comparisons in the spirit of Halloween.
Azalea covered her face in pale powder and donned a pink shirt, denim jacket and skirt, white gloves and a bad blonde wig to play Tiffany Wilson, the rich socialite Wayans' cop character Kevin Copeland transforms into for an undercover job with his brother, Marcus, portrayed by Marlon Wayans.
She recruited a pal to dress up as Marcus and together, the pair headed to Jennifer Lopez's Halloween bash in Los Angeles, where stars including Demi Lovato partied the night away.
The spook-tacular event also featured a flashmob dance to Michael Jackson's Thriller, led my a man dressed as the King of Pop in his iconic red leather jacket. Taking to Twitter.com on Saturday (01Nov14), Azalea wrote, "@JLo Your party was awesome last night! The dancers!"
The Office ended May 16, 2013. That might only be a year and a half ago, but with fall TV in full swing, The Office fans can feel the show's presence missing from our lives. Can't they just reunite and make new episodes already? Every other show/movie is getting redone or sequels or put on Netflix, why not skip the waiting period and do it now?
1. This show taught us amazing life lessons, like that you can be both feared and loved.
2. We also learned this very useful bit of advice about mistletoe.
3. The show gave us aspirations that we could do more than just sit in an office.
4. Kelly Kapoor is the reason we know what to say to sound smart.
5. And Michael broke the very important news over who loves pizza.
6. Kevin taught us all what dreams really are.
7. Our inner child smiled when Dwight used this insult we've been throwing at our friends since we could read.
8. This show introduced u s to a new National holiday.
9. They gave us hope to one day create such an amazing holiday card with our own co-workers.
10. Characters like Jim created places no one ever knew they wanted, but once we heard of them, we needed them.
11. But speaking of Jim, The Office also showed us that office romances can bloom into the most powerful and amazing things in the world.
12. The show gave us the perfect insult for Negative Nancys.
13. It also reminded us there are too many people on this planet.
14. Prison Mike let everyone know why we should never wind up in prison.
15. Stanley gave everyone a new life motto.
16. Jim and Dwight gave us very tough decisions. Did we love Jim as Dwight?
17. Or Dwight as Jim, more?
18. And honestly, is TV really even funny anymore if people aren't force-feeding Kevin vegetables?
