On this week’s episode of “Saturday Night Live”, the cast took aim at a nervous Trump family, complete with a looming Robert Mueller, played again by Robert DeNiro. In the cold open, President Donald Trump’s sons, Eric and Don Jr., comforted each other at bedtime over the scary thought of Mueller's potential indictments.

The real Russia investigation gained steam this week when prosecutors filed new documents saying former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen and former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort continually lied to investigators.

Jason Momoa, who plays Aquaman in the new film by the same name, hosted the show, admitting in his monologue that he is something of an “SNL” nerd after watching it for years. He was joined by Leslie Jones, Kenan Thompson and Chris Redd, who claimed they had a great idea for Aquaman’s theme song.

On the "Weekend Update," hosts Colin Jost and Michael Che once again touched on Robert Mueller and his Russia investigation. Michael Che spoke about Trump’s somewhat invalid attempts to call off the Mueller investigation, joking that he would try that too if he were in Trump’s position.

The musical guests on the show were English rockers Mumford and Sons. The band performed two songs, "Guiding Light" and "Delta," from their 2018 album, "Delta."

<![CDATA[Bella Hadid Body Shamed for Appearance in New Video]]> Fri, 07 Dec 2018 11:50:43 -0800 https://media.nbcbayarea.com/images/214*120/GettyImages-1059471556-thumb.jpg

Model Bella Hadid is once again the target of online criticism because of her physical appearance.

Love Magazine posted a Youtube video of Hadid posing in two black bathing suits as part of its 50-video “moving image issue.” In one gem-studded bathing suit, her pointy hip bones are clearly visible as she describes her experience accepting her own appearance.

[[502188941, C]]

“When I felt most beautiful was very recently in the past two years when my health was at its best,” Hadid says in the video. “I just felt very comfortable in my own being, instead of looking for the person who I should be through others.”

But despite Hadid’s assertion that she feels healthy and beautiful, some social media users criticized her for her appearance, with some going so far as to accuse her of possibly having an eating disorder.

“This is disgusting, as a worldwide magazine you have a responsibility to young girls,” one Instagram user commented on Love Magazine’s video. “You’re here giving a platform to a malnourished woman.”

Other users noted that Hadid had lost a lot of weight and looked “skinnier” and “too thin.”

Some users appeared to agree with the observation, but they also said that calling Hadid “unhealthy” and “skeletal” was a form of body-shaming.

“This is body-shaming,” another user wrote. “And not affecting only her but lots of girls like me that can’t change their bodies and get bullied everyday for being that skinny.”

This isn’t the first time Hadid has been criticized because of her body shape.

In November, Hadid posted a photo on Instagram of her in a black lingeries set in preparation for the Victoria's Secret fashion show, which she recently walked in. 

[[502189031, C]]

Social media users said she looked “too skinny” and was “all bones,” possibly in response to the faint visibility of Hadid’s ribs in the photo.

In the photo caption, Hadid assured she was “feeling happier and healthier than ever.”

Hadid was also diagnosed with Lyme disease, a flea-borne illness, three years ago, a fact which one Instagram user pointed out.

Although some people infected with the disease have reported experiencing rapid weight gain or weight loss, Hadid seemed to imply in her November Instagram post about her Victoria Secret fitting that her new look is the result of exercise.

“All body types are different and react differently to a great workout routine and a healthy diet,” Hadid wrote in the post.

<![CDATA[Cosby Blamed for Recent Ban on 'Baby, It's Cold Outside' ]]> Fri, 07 Dec 2018 11:09:43 -0800 https://media.nbcbayarea.com/images/213*120/loesser-cosby.jpg

Baby, it’s really, really cold outside for Frank Loesser’s Oscar-winning song this Christmas season.

Under fire amid the #MeToo movement from critics who say "Baby, It's Cold Outside" is sexist and hints at date rape, radio stations in Cleveland and San Francisco have dropped the holiday staple from their Christmas playlists and others in the U.S. and Canada are following suit.

This is not sitting well with the daughter of Broadway legend Frank Loesser, who said she has heard complaints in the past about her dad’s ditty but blames Bill Cosby for turning it into something fiendish.

"Bill Cosby ruined it for everybody," Susan Loesser told NBC News on Thursday. “Way before #Me Too, I would hear from time to time people call it a date rape song. I would get annoyed because it’s a song my father wrote for him and my mother to sing at parties. But ever since Cosby was accused of drugging women, I hear the date rape thing all the time.”

Cosby was convicted earlier this year of drugging and sexually assaulting one woman and has been accused of doing the same to dozens more. And the link between the song and disgraced actor was even reinforced in a memorable SNL skit — from 2015.

<![CDATA[Ella Hunt Is Having a Hollywood Beginning]]> Fri, 07 Dec 2018 11:37:52 -0800 https://media.nbcbayarea.com/images/213*120/AP_18289729280003.jpg

Ella Hunt doesn't think she'd survive the Zombie apocalypse.

"I'm extremely clumsy and would probably trip over, and, probably, be eaten by zombies," the star of the new film "Anna and the Apocalypse," told NBC. If she did survive, though, she said, it'd be with a garden shovel. She's from "middle of nowhere" in Devon, the southwest of England, and her mom is an "amazing" gardener. So she'd use her mother's spade with its long handle and pointy head: "That would be a good zombie killing tool."

But in the Christmas-zombie-high-school-musical Hunt's character uses another tool in her fight for survival against the zombies: a massive candy cane.

And she does it dressed practically, a rarity in the world of female action stars; Anna wears a winter coat and biker boots. "I felt super empowered by getting to wear a big winter coat," Hunt said. "I just felt like that's what she'd wear."

Hunt performed all of the stunts in the action-packed film, which hit theaters last week. To get into character, Hunt used playlists; she does this with many of her roles. Anna's playlist had the songs from the film, of course, but also some classical music, and for preparation for fight scenes, AWOLNATION's "Sail."

In the film, Hunt plays Anna, a teenager who is dealing with zombies, but also the very normal woes of high school life, how there's "no such thing as a Hollywood ending" (something the characters sing about in an electric musical number: Yes, this zombie movie is really, epically, a musical.) And that's important to Hunt. 

"I think it's an exciting time for women in film, because more and more we are seeing characters that aren't defined by one dimension of their personality," Hunt reflected. "I'm excited to play characters that are flawed and unlikable or characters that are likable but tricky and difficult and all the things that women can be." That is, moving past only having roles for women who are the "damsel in distress" or "the bitch."

Hunt was especially excited with Anna, the character Ryan McHenry and Alan McDonald had written. Anna, Hunt said, is a character who "is so well rounded, who is vulnerable, unsure and unsteady in her decisions, but also sassy and badass and cool and likable." She also feels young people deserve a more three dimensional portrayal. Anna gives her hope and inspires her to do more of that.

These exciting times for women are also exciting for Hunt, who considers herself a storyteller rather than an actress. After spending 10 years acting, beginning by dancing around her house in a tutu, Hunt has in the past few weeks entered the public limelight.

The 20-year-old actress was named Screen FrightFest Genre Rising Star 2018; she tweeted in response "So happy!! Big things to come." What are those big things?

Well, she'll be playing the very different character of Sue Gilbert opposite Hailee Steinfeld in the upcoming comedy Apple TV show "Dickenson," on the renowned American poet. She'll also star in "Kat and the Band," coming out later this year, and in the 2018 coming of age rom-com "Summer Night."

Characters in the film sing about the fallacy of the Hollywood ending, and Hunt agreed: "I don't think life has a beginning, middle and end. Obviously with storytelling it's important to give the audience the satisfaction of some kind of ending."

"The film is actually not about saving the world, it's just about survival," Hunt concluded. "That, to me, felt honest."

Life might not have a Hollywood ending, but Hunt is having her Hollywood beginning.

<![CDATA[Judge Grants NYC Ice Bucket Sisters Protection From Cardi B]]> Fri, 07 Dec 2018 15:54:46 -0800 https://media.nbcbayarea.com/images/172*120/cardi+newer.jpg

Cardi B showed up for her postponed New York City arraignment Friday, avoiding a bench warrant for her arrest that a judge had threatened to issue after a no-show earlier in the week.

The "Bodak Yellow" singer headed into court, escorted by police and her entourage, as throngs of photographers and reporters fought to get close. The court appearance, scheduled for late Friday morning, stems from charges from an August fight at a Queens strip club

Cardi B faces a misdemeanor summons in connection with that fight. Surveillance video shows her picking up an ice bucket and throwing it at two sisters who were bartending, sources have told News 4.

At Friday's hearing, the judge ordered Cardi B to have no contact whatsoever with the two sisters and issued an order of protection for them. He also warned Cardi B to "please be very careful" with social media.

When he asked if all that was clear, the rapper nodded. 

Prosecutors had asked for bail to be set at $2,500 but the judge said he felt she was not a flight risk and released her on her own recognizance. She's due back in court at the end of January. 

Her attorney, Jeff Kern, said in court that his client has no criminal record. In the past, he has said he was "aware of no evidence that she caused anybody any harm." Neither he nor Cardi B spoke after they left court Friday. 

Born Belcalis Almanzar, and a former stripper herself, Cardi B was at the club in College Point because her husband Offset was performing with his hip-hop trio Migos, according to police. She and her entourage got into an argument around 3 a.m. that Saturday with the two sisters, according to a source directly connected to the two alleged victims.

Cardi B apparently suspected one of the sisters was having an affair with Offset and had confronted the women, ages 21 and 23, in Atlanta on June 29, the sources said. The rapper announced this week she and Offset had split up.

Cardi B's "Invasion of Privacy" is among the nominees announced Friday for the 2019 Grammy Awards' album of the year. She scored a total of five nominations and found out about them at court. The rapper was pleased.

<![CDATA[Endgame: 'Avengers 4' Trailer Revealed]]> Fri, 07 Dec 2018 15:35:36 -0800 https://media.nbcbayarea.com/images/213*120/avengersendgame.jpg

It's here.

Marvel Studios revealed the much anticipated trailer to "Avengers 4: Endgame" Friday, and it looks like fans of the series better prepare for an emotional rollercoaster.

Without giving away too many plot points, the trailer picks up with the few surviving heroes from "Avengers: Infinity War" picking up the pieces after Thanos has eliminated half the population of the universe, with many Avengers among the dead. Tony Stark is still adrift in space far from home, running low on food and air. Back on Earth, Captain America and the Black Widow are struggling to regroup, while Thor and Bruce Banner are busy looking lost and despondent. 

One Avenger absent from the last film does make a surprise return in the trailer (Hey there Hawkeye), as does the diminutive Ant-man, who, much to the surprise of Captain America and the Black Widow, is still very much alive.

"Avengers: Endgame" arrives in theaters April 26.

<![CDATA[Film Rights to 'The Watcher' Tale Are Sold]]> Fri, 07 Dec 2018 04:37:19 -0800 https://media.nbcbayarea.com/images/213*120/watcher+house.jpg

The story behind New Jersey’s creepiest house to live in is coming to Netflix.

The entertainment site Deadline reports the online-streaming company won a bidding battle for the film rights to the tale of “The Watcher.”

A New Jersey couple had bought their dream house in Westfield only to quickly move out after it turned into a nightmare when they started receiving creepy and sometimes threatening letters from an anonymous stalker.

The stalker, known as “The Watcher,” claims his family owns the property and has been watching the home for nearly a century.

Derek and Maria Broaddus had filed a lawsuit against the former owners of the Westfield home, saying they knew about the "The Watcher" before they sold them the home in 2014. A judge threw out the remaining counts of the civil lawsuit.

The family ultimately decided they couldn’t live in the house after receiving the letters, which contained threats toward their children. They recently spoke out about the terrifying ordeal in an interview with New York Magazine.

“Why are you here?” one letter read. “I will find out.” The same letter also asked, "Do you need to fill the house with the young blood I requested?"

The Broadduses were eventually able to find renters who didn’t mind living at the property. Last year, the house landed on Thrillist’s List of creepiest urban legends.

<![CDATA[Golden Globes Diversity Takes 2 Steps Forward, 1 Back]]> Thu, 06 Dec 2018 14:47:44 -0800 https://media.nbcbayarea.com/images/213*120/wuAP_18316137625271.jpg

While it would be going too far to say the upcoming Golden Globes ceremony could be branded #GlobesSoDiverse, the nominations for the annual award ceremony announced Thursday are at least a step in the right direction.

Still, many are criticizing the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) for their lack of nominations of females in the motion picture directing category.

The annual award season, which includes the Academy Awards and the Golden Globes, has been accused of a lack of diversity for years, with criticism reaching its peak in 2016 when #OscarsSoWhite became common usage across social media platforms.

Of this year’s nominees in the best picture categories, four of the 10 films were helmed by non-white directors, a first for the Globes. John M. Chu’s “Crazy Rich Asians” earned its place in the comedy/musical category, while Barry Jenkins’ “If Beale Street Could Talk,” Spike Lee’s “BlacKkKlansman” and Ryan Coogler’s “Black Panther” were all named in the drama category.

But when it came to nominating film directors, not a single female made the list.

The all-male line-up is Bradley Cooper for “A Star Is Born,” “BlacKkKlansman’s” Spike Lee (his second Globe directing nomination since “Do the Right Thing” in 1990), Alfonso Cuaron for “Roma,” “Green Book’s” Peter Farrelly, and Adam McKay for “Vice.”

Sure, the HFPA only nominates five directors here, eschewing the drama/comedy split reserved for most other categories, but with Natalie Portman highlighting the same shutout during the 2017 ceremony when she introduced the award category with “And here are all the male nominees…,” it’s a glaring repeat of what has come before.

Only five women have ever been nominated to the film directing category in the history of the Globes: Sofia Coppola (“Lost in Translation”), Jane Campion (“The Piano”), Kathryn Bigelow (“The Hurt Locker” and “Zero Dark Thirty”), Ava DuVernay (“Selma”) and Barbra Streisand (“Yentl” and “The Prince of Tides”). Streisand is the only one to win, for 1984’s “Yentl.”

On the flip side it’s good to be Golden Globes’ host Sandra Oh. Not only will she be the first performer of Asian descent to host a major awards show (alongside “Brooklyn Nine-Nine’s” Andy Samberg), but she’s also nominated to the lead TV drama actress race for her role in “Killing Eve.” A win here would make Korean-Canadian Oh the first Asian performer ever to win multiple Golden Globes, following her previous award for her work on “Grey’s Anatomy.”

Constance Wu has already made history with her nomination to the lead actress comedy or musical category for “Crazy Rich Asians.” She’s the first person of Asian descent nominated to the category in almost half a century.

Prior to Wu, it was Yvonne Elliman for her work in 1974’s “Jesus Christ Superstar.” Following the announcement of her nomination, Wu tweeted, “I’m ecstatic but also in shock!”

Later Thursday she told The Hollywood Reporter that “for so long Asian-Americans have been in film and TV, but we've always been supporting another culture's story. We've never been leading our culture's story.”

Thanks to the inclusions and exclusions above, it’s probably a safe bet many acceptance speeches on the night will be politically charged. Best picture nominees “Black Panther,” “If Beale Street Could Talk” and “BlacKkKlansman” all deal with black themes, while multiple-category nominees “Green Book” and “Vice” address social and political issues from America’s past. All speak to the current state of the nation.

NBC will broadcast the 76th Annual Golden Globe Awards live starting at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT on Jan. 6, 2019.

<![CDATA[Diane Keaton's Lost Wallet Found in NY 50 Years Later]]> Thu, 06 Dec 2018 15:46:18 -0800 https://media.nbcbayarea.com/images/213*120/AP_17160124237972_film_awards1.jpg

A wallet that Diane Keaton misplaced decades ago has turned up in a New York storage unit.

The Oscar-winning actress lost the wallet 50 years ago, she said on Instagram this week.

This past May, “treasure hunter” Anton Lulgjuraj bought the contents of a deserted storage unit in Putnam County at an auction and discovered the wallet as he was perusing a dusty box, the Daily News reported.

Inside the wallet were Keaton’s 1966 driver’s license and “Actors’ Equity Association” card, along with a stack of personal and family photos.

“I opened it up and thought, ‘Is this Diane Keaton the actress? It couldn’t be. Or maybe it could,'” Lulgjuraj told the outlet.

Lulgjuraj reached out to Keaton on Twitter in an effort to return her wallet and photographs, but wasn’t able to make contact, he said.

After the Daily News wrote about his storage unit find, however, Keaton caught wind of the story and took to social media to voice her disbelief.

“SOMEONE FOUND A WALLET I LOST 50 YEARS AGO! THANK YOU, MR. LULGJURAJ! PLEASE DM ME!” Keaton wrote in an Instagram post, attaching a childhood photo she said had been inside the wallet.

“This is the craziest story! I don’t remember losing this, but I’m not surprised because I’ve lost my wallet many times!” she added on Twitter.

Lulgjuraj told the outlet he was “thrilled” by Keaton’s messages and said he’d mailed the wallet and its contents to Keaton’s attorney.

It's official: Actors Sandra Oh and Andy Samberg will co-host the 2019 Golden Globes.

Oh, star of the critically acclaimed BBC America drama series "Killing Eve," and Samberg, "Saturday Night Live" alum and star of the NBC comedy "Brooklyn Nine-Nine," are both Golden Globe winners.

The Globes serve as the official kickoff to the 2019 awards season. Winners in 25 categories — 14 in film and 11 in television — are voted on by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA).

Meher Tatna, president of the HFPA, said the organization is "excited to welcome" the new co-hosts to the annual event stage.

"Both Golden Globe Award recipients have continually showcased their talents in film and television, and we can’t wait see what their undeniable chemistry will bring to the Golden Globes stage," Tatna said.

The 75th Golden Globes were hosted last year by Seth Meyers, host of NBC's "Late Night" and another former "Saturday Night Live" writer and cast member.

The 76th Annual Golden Globes will broadcast from The Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles and air live on NBC on Sunday, Jan. 6, at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT.
