Emmys 2020 In Memoriam: Diahann Carroll, Regis Philbin, Carl Reiner among dozens to be honored



For Sunday’s Primetime Emmy Awards ceremony on ABC, producers will have the always difficult task of assembling a memoriam segment. Even though the event hosted by Jimmy Kimmel will be virtual, it’s a certainty they will include the popular “In Memoriam” on the show.

With over 100 television veterans having died since last year’s mid-September ceremony, those expected to be honored would include such TV legends and TV Academy Hall of Fame members:

Diahann Carroll (actress in “Julia,” “Dynasty”)

Leonard Goldberg (executive at 20th Century Fox and ABC; producer of “Charlie’s Angels” and more)

Jim Lehrer (anchor/reporter of “MacNeil/Lehrer NewsHour)

Regis Philbin (host of “Live with Regis and Kathie Lee,” “Live with Regis and Kelly”)

Carl Reiner (producer/writer/actor for “Your Show of Shows,” “The Dick Van Dyke Show”)

Fred Silverman (executive at CBS, ABC, NBC; producer of “Matlock” and more)

Even though they weren’t known for their TV work, it’s very likely NBA Hall of Famer Kobe Bryant and blockbuster film actor Chadwick Boseman will be honored. Also among the dozens most likely included since they are familiar Emmy winners or nominees:

Rene Auberjonois (actor)
Olivia de Havilland (actor)
Brian Dennehy (actor)

NYFW: Rebecca Minkoff’s Rocker-Meets-Boho Collection and Nicole Miller’s ‘Totally ’70s’ Line




Designer Rebecca Minkoff launched her rocker-meets-boho Fall 2020 collection at New York Fashion Week, and told “Extra’s” Cheslie Kryst all about it. She debuted the looks on an NYC rooftop, describing the vibe as “Mick Jagger’s house or his after-party spot.”

She also detailed the fabrics she used to create the pieces, saying, “There is leather, there is vegan leather, there is a lot of great florals, some velvet. Some of our longer jackets are more menswear-inspired.”

Meanwhile, “Extra’s” Adam Glassman spoke with Nicole Miller about her “totally ’70s” Spring 2021 collection, describing it as “more Laurel Canyon than Woodstock.” She used tie-dye, dip dye, and recycled pieces, and used a more muted palette than usual.

Chase Stokes and Madelyn Cline Return to the Outer Banks in Steamy Kygo ‘Hot Stuff’ Music Video




Gotta have some love tonight! Chase Stokes and Madelyn Cline star in the music video for Kygo’s new remix of Donna Summer’s 1979 hit “Hot Stuff.”

The retro-inspired visual, which premiered on Friday, September 18, follows the Outer Banks costars and real-life couple as they return to the barrier islands off the coast of North Carolina. After climbing on the back of Stokes’ bicycle, Cline, 22, and the actor, 28, sneak into the local bar The Fat Pelican, pick up a few drinks and head out back, where they continue to flirt.

At one point, the actress strips off her beau’s white T-shirt and tosses a patterned button-down at him to change into. She then removes her cardigan, revealing a low-cut sequined top as she dances seductively for a googly-eyed Stokes. The video ends with the pair dancing together and making out.

“Hot Stuff” is the third dance classic that Kygo, 29, has reworked in recent years. He previously released remixes of Whitney Houston’s “Higher Love” and Tina Turner’s “What’s Love Got to Do With It.”

“Donna Summer is one of my favorite artists of all time. Her catalogue of music is brilliant, and her vocals are unmatched,” the DJ said in a statement on Friday. “I am honored and humbled to get to work on an iconic track like ‘Hot Stuff.’ This has always been one of those songs that instantly puts me in a good mood, and I hope that this version can continue to bring joy and happiness to people who want to celebrate the legendary Donna Summer.”

Stokes and Cline, for their part, sparked dating rumors in April after playing onscreen couple John B. and Sarah Cameron in the Netflix teen drama. Two months later, they confirmed their relationship by sharing photos from a beach date. “Cats outta the bag,” the Maryland native wrote via Instagram at the time.

Days later, the duo went live on the social media app to talk to fans about their decision to go public.

“I was like, ‘I think I’m gonna post it.’ [My mom] was like, ‘Really? You understand what happens when you do that?’ And I’m like, ‘Yeah. I do, Mom. Sure do,’” Stokes said. “Then I texted Maddie and I said, ‘What do you think?’ And she said, ‘I don’t care.’”

Cline then chimed in: “I thought he meant posting it at some point in the future. He didn’t clarify what time. … And there it was. Modern romance.”

David Oyelowo Will Open The 24th Annual Urbanworld Film Festival




For the past two decades, The Urbanworld Film Festival has been one of the largest international competitive festivals in the world. Founded in 1997 by Stacy Spikes, the legendary festival is a unique space that connects Black directors, writers, producers and actors from across the diaspora to showcase their work in front of a captive audience. 

This year’s festival will be no different — except in one way. 

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the festival will be virtual, going from September 23 to 27.

David Oyelowo’s feature directorial debut, The Water Man, in which he also stars, will open the festival on Wednesday, September 23, 2020 at 7:30 P.M. The fantasy-adventure film follows a boy who sets out on a quest to save his ill mother by searching for a mythic figure said to have magical healing powers. 

A conversation with Oyelowo, Rosario Dawson, Lonnie Chavis and Amiah Miller moderated by Ava DuVernay will immediately follow the screening, as well as a special performance by singer Alice Smith.

The horror satire Bad Hair will screen on Thursday, September 24, 2020 at 8:00 P.M.. A conversation about the making of the film with writer/director Justin Simien, Lena Waithe, Elle Lorraine and Kelly Rowland will be moderated by entrepreneur Tahira Joy.

On Friday, September 25, 2020 at 8:00 P.M., Candyman director/co-writer Nia DaCosta, Teyonah Parris and Vanessa Williams will have an intimate conversation around the contemporary incarnation of the cult classic. 

The festival will close with Come Away, which stars David Oyelowo and Angelina Jolie, on Sunday, September 27, 2020 at 3:00 P.M. The film imagines a world before Peter became Pan and Alice visited Wonderland. The screening will be followed by a conversation, moderated by Urbanworld Film Festival Founder Stacy Spikes, with Oyelowo and Alice herself, actress Kiera Chansa.

Urbanworld’s Founding partner HBO is joined by key supporters including WarnerMedia as Prestige partner and Amazon Studios, BET Networks and 150 as Premiere partners.
