“What do the 2019 Film Independent Spirit Awards have that the other award show doesn’t? An actual f–ing host!” the actress says in the promo. “Watch an awards show with a host. Hosted by me, host Aubrey Plaza. I will host,” she added. You can watch the expletive-filled promo above.

Everything You Need to Know About M. Night Shyamalan's Unbreakable Before Watching Glass
The hour is nearly upon us: M. Night Shyamalan's Glass is about to hit theaters, effectively closing the book on a trilogy that's been open for nearly two decades. But in order to really make sense of the film, you might be wondering whether you need to watch the ones that came before it. After all, Unbreakable was released in 2000; can Shyamalan really expect us to remember everything that happened as we go in to watch Glass? Does he expect us to watch or rewatch Unbreakable as preparation for the film?

Well, dear friends, I have a few pieces of good news to tell you. One, I went in to Glass having only seen Split and having never seen Unbreakable, and I was still able to mostly follow along. So, if you wanted to skip the watch/rewatch, you have full license to. More good news: after I saw Glass,

Yes, They Got the Same Actor From Unbreakable to Return as David's Son in Glass!
With Glass in theaters on Jan. 18, M. Night Shyamalan has officially closed the book on an epic trilogy nearly two decades in the making. That's a pretty incredible scope, when you think about it. It's even more incredible to think that the director managed to secure two leads to reprise their roles 19 years after they originated them; Bruce Willis and Samuel L. Jackson are back in full force as our respective hero and villain, David Dunn and Elijah "Mr. Glass" Price. But as it turns out, these aren't the only two actors to make a miraculous return for the big finale.

In addition to the aforementioned two, Charlayne Woodard is also back as Elijah's mother. Not only that, but, Spencer Treat Clark is back as David Dunn's son, Joseph Dunn! Yep, it's unmistakable: that really is the same bright-eyed little boy who appeared on screen way back in 2000. Clark's return

Mark Your Calendars For The Big Bang Theory's Last Bazinga! It'll Most Likely End In . . .

  • Popsugar
This Spring, one of the longest-running staples of network TV will finally come to an end. We're talking, of course, about the CBS sitcom The Big Bang Theory, which is scheduled to end its run this year after a whopping 12 seasons. As the finale draws nearer and storylines begin to head toward their endpoints, the question on everyone's mind is when to expect that final episode.

As with most networks, CBS has not yet released its May finale schedule, so we don't have an exact date for the final installment. In fact, as of early December 2018, the final episode had not even been written yet, as executive producer Steve Holland told USA Today. "We know what we want," said Holland, citing discussions with fellow executive producers Chuck Lorre and Steven Molaro. "We know the ending we're driving for, and we're excited about it."

11 Lighthearted Shows I Stream When I’m Feeling Stressed
As someone who experiences anxiety, the inside of my brain is pretty much run by the frenetic anthropomorphized Fear character from Inside Out. Sure, I do deep breathing exercises and read a lot, but what gets me through a really rough day is good old TV. I think of it as allowing my brain to decompress with the best of what the small screen has to offer (while sneaking in a workout every now and then). Who can resist documentaries with beautiful cinematography, sitcoms with warmhearted jokes, or reality TV about self-improvement and following your dreams? If you're feeling anxious, read on for a list of shows that have melted away my worries, from Friends to Planet Earth.

The Cambridges Are Probably Done Having Kids - Here's Why

The Cambridges Are Probably Done Having Kids - Here's Why
There's no doubt that Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge have an incredibly adorable family. Between future heir Prince George, scene-stealing Princess Charlotte, and sweet baby Prince Louis, the royal couple certainly have their hands full with their young family. With a royal baby on the way for Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan, some are wondering whether or not William and Kate will have any more children.

As most members of the royal family tend to do when it comes to personal matters, the couple have remained private as to whether or not they plan to grow their family any further. However, it seems pretty unlikely for a few different reasons. From a simple health perspective, it seems like it would probably be a very frustrating experience for the duchess. During all three of her pregnancies, Kate suffered from hyperemesis gravidarium, a severe and debilitating side effect of pregnancy

It's Basically Impossible to Spot This Inside Joke Lurking in M. Night Shyamalan's Glass

It's Basically Impossible to Spot This Inside Joke Lurking in M. Night Shyamalan's Glass
Director M. Night Shyamalan has finally finished his Eastrail 177 Trilogy - which consists of Unbreakable, Split, and, now, Glass - wrapping up the stories of superhumans David Dunn (Bruce Willis), Mr. Glass (Samuel L. Jackson), and Kevin Wendell Crumb (James McAvoy). The latter suffers from dissociative identity disorder, with 24 individual personalities living within his psyche, making McAvoy's performance nothing short of astounding.

While sitting down with Fandango, the director explained how one of Kevin's many personalities, a Southern man identified as "Luke," is actually a nod to the film's real-life editor, Luke Ciarrocchi. Apparently Ciarrocchi has a notorious habit of spoiling the ends of films for his friends, which is why Shyamalan has McAvoy-as-Luke say in Glass, "Everybody knows the priest dies at the end of The Exorcist."

Ray Romano and Mark Duplass Form an Unlikely Friendship in Netflix's Paddleton

In between all the big-budget sci-fi thrillers on Netflix's roster, like Bird Box and Io, is Mark Duplass's quiet Sundance drama about two misfit neighbors who end up forming an unlikely, but nevertheless heartwarming, bond.

The film, Paddleton, sees Ray Romano and writer-director Mark Duplass playing said neighbors, who find themselves leaning on each other when the younger of the two, Michael (Duplass), is diagnosed with terminal cancer. Because of the brutal chemo process, Michael decides he's going to end things on his own terms, enlisting the help of his best friend, played by Romano, to join him on a road trip to procure medication that will . . . well, you know.

Mixed into the conversations about life, death, and everything in between is plenty of footage of the pair playing a game called "paddleton," which apparently involves tennis rackets, a giant trash can, and a big wall. There's also

This Photo of Amanda Seyfried Sitting With Her 2 Movie Dads at the Airport Just Made My Day

This Photo of Amanda Seyfried Sitting With Her 2 Movie Dads at the Airport Just Made My Day
Pierce Brosnan was lounging at the Geneva Airport in Switzerland when he very casually bumped into Amanda Seyfried and Hugh Jackman. The actor shared a sweet photo from the chance encounter and wrote, "Love you both and all the work that you do." Hugh also shared the same photo and wrote, "Our daughter," while Amanda did the same and added, "Lucky daughter."

Between the three of them, they share four movies in common: Amanda and Pierce both appeared in Mamma Mia! and Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again, and Amanda and Hugh costarred in Les Misérables and Pan. What's crazier, however, is that Amanda played both Pierce and Hugh's daughters in various films - hence Hugh's caption. In the Mamma Mia! franchise, Pierce's character Sam is the stepfather and potential biological father to Amanda's character Sophie. In Les Misérables, Hugh's Jean Valjean looks after Amanda's Cosette like a father after her biological mother dies.

Ted Danson's Floss Dance Has Improved Astronomically Since He First Learned It

Ted Danson's Floss Dance Has Improved Astronomically Since He First Learned It
Few things in this world are as precious as the sight of Ted Danson doing the floss. In case you missed it, the 71-year-old actor was filmed back in November trying to learn how to "floss" - which is basically a dance where you move your hips side to side while swinging your arms in the opposite direction. Ted's costars on NBC's The Good Place were giving him a thorough tutorial on how to master the jig. And after a couple of months of practice, he took his skill from the 'gram to late-night television.

During his Tuesday appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live, the host showed the clip of Ted first learning how to floss. Ted then excitedly got up and showed the world that he's now fine-tuned his technique and can still get down with the best of them - sort of. Although his floss has improved, there's
