sag best actor eddie redmayne michael keaton benedict cumberbatch

Less than half of the Best Ensemble winners at the SAG Awards have gone on to win Best Picture at the Oscars, but SAG has much greater predictive power in the acting races. Consider Best Actor: 81% of nominees (81 out of 100) line up with the Oscars, as do 80% of winners (16 out of 20). That makes SAG a crucial stop on the campaign trail for leading men.

Fey cast Hooks as the mother of Jenna Maroney (Jane Krakowski) a few years ago. She says, "Jan was so funny and the crew was so mesmerized. It made me sad when she passed and it made me mad at the time that how available she was. Jan should have had a bigger career. Jan deserved a big movie career, certainly as big as Rob Schneider. E!

survivor san juan del sur blood is blood jon misch tribe switch entertainment story

"Drop your buffs," exclaims Jeff Probst in CBS's new preview for Episode 5 of "Survivor: San Juan del Sur," titled "Blood is Blood." The tribe switch we wondered about last week is finally here, but presumably not everyone in the game will benefit from this shake-up.

Also in the trailer (which you can watch below), Jon Misch appears to go crazy after the switch, threatening, "If you're not with me, you don't know what's going on." Meanwhile, Dale Wentworth gets in a fight over his bowl of rice and Natalie Anderson worries that the singles will all be voted out. Let the games begin.

Psst: Here's how to predict reality TV shows and win bragging rights AND prizes!

top chef season 12 boston mei lin adam harvey doug adams entertainment story

It's no secret that Contributing Editor Ralph Galvan and myself are sworn enemies here at Gold Derby. In fact, we disagreed so much when predicting the Emmys that we ended up writing competing articles over who'd win the various acting races. (Here's one, and here's another.)

When Ralph and I sat down to discuss our new obsession -- "Top Chef" Season 12 -- you could cut the tension with a butcher's knife. Below, read our feisty Q&A about the current season and see why we're both predicting Mei Lin as this year's winner.
