Stanley Tucci and Felicity Blunt got married in London on Saturday. The couple officially tied the knot back in August, but they celebrated once again with a ceremony at Middle Temple Hall and a party this weekend. Felicity's sister, Emily, was a bridesmaid, while Steve Buscemi served as best man. John Krasinski, Tony Shalhoub, Meryl Streep, Julianne Moore, and Colin Firth were among the celebrity guests that attended the special occasion. Felicity and Stanley's wedding was just one of many this weekend, including Anne Hathaway and Adam Shulman's Big Sur, CA, affair and Kings of Leon member Jared Followill's nuptials.
This year, you're helping me break down the Emmy nominations and predicting who you want — and think — will win. Today I'm showing you what you guys think of the best actor in a comedy category. Take a look, and don't forget to also vote on who you think will win on my ballot — you could win an iPad!
For this year's Emmy nominations, I've been having you guys tell me why you think a certain actor deserves to take home the gold this year. You're doing an amazing job — and your arguments are figuring prominently in my Emmy breakdowns. For this round, I want you to tell me who deserves the statute for best lead actor in a comedy.
Interestingly, only one of the nominees is a newbie: Glee's Matthew Morrison. He joins veterans Larry David of Curb Your Enthusiasm, Steve Carell of The Office, Alec Baldwin of 30 Rock, Jim Parsons of The Big Bang Theory, and Tony Shalhoub of Monk, who have a whopping 23 nominations between them. It'll be Shalhoub's last chance since Monk is no longer on the air. Who do you think deserves to win?
Broadway's best gathered in NYC last night for the Tony Awards. Both Scarlett Johansson and Liev Schreiber were nominated for their work in A View From the Bridge, and they brought along their significant others for support. Liev posed with an RM by Roland Mouret-wearing Naomi Watts on the red carpet, but, as usual, Scarlett and her husband, Ryan Reynolds, kept their distance in front of the photographers. Lea Michele wore Zac Posen to join Matthew Morrison in representing Glee, as their costars wrapped up their European travels promoting their show at the Monte Carlo TV Festival. Scarlett, in Elie Saab, was one of the ceremony's early winners, taking home an award for Best Featured Actress in a Play. She thanked Ryan from the podium, calling him, "My Canadian, who I live with, Ryan."
Jay-Z and Beyonce Knowles were seated in the audience after a busy weekend — they started off with his performance at the Isle of Wight Festival in the UK, before heading to Bonnaroo and onto the Big Apple. Lea and Matthew, meanwhile, went from the arrivals area to the stage to perform a show tunes medley. Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith celebrated their son Jaden's taking the number one spot at the weekend box office with The Karate Kid by handing out an award together. Katie Holmes was decked out in gray to present alongside Daniel Radcliffe, and Denzel Washington was another of the night's honorees for his performance in Fences — make sure to check out the full list of winners.

There weren't a whole lot of bright colors for the men on the red carpet at last night's Golden Globes but if it ain't broke, there's no use in fixing it. Even without taking any chances, the boys looked great on a sunny LA day that allowed for some of them to sport their sunglasses. Tom Cruise looked fantastic as his wife was performing her last show on Broadway before immediately heading to LA to meet up with her husband for the after parties. Brad Pitt didn't leave Angelina's side while Leonardo had Kate Winslet on his arm for the photos. Some of our favorite TV stars like Jon Hamm, David Duchovny, and Kiefer Sutherland got to mingle with the big screen elite and everyone cleaned up well for the big show. Be sure to check out all the ladies on the red carpet and see the list of winners here. Now, back to looking at these handsome men.
In this season's second "Hey, we're out of shows, so let's repurpose something from our cable sister!" move, USA's Monk and Psych get a bigtime airing tonight on NBC. The shows are airing in repeats on Sundays for the next several weeks to fill the void left by the writers' strike, a la Dexter on CBS. But hey, as they used to say all the time, if you haven't seen it, it's new to you — right?
It's possible there are a lot of people who have never seen Monk despite its six years on the air and multiple Emmy and Golden Globe wins for its star, Tony Shalhoub. If you've always wondered who that curly-haired guy is accepting the Best Comedic Actor awards at practically every major ceremony, this is your chance to find out. For the uninitiated, Shalhoub plays Adrian Monk, an obsessive-compulsive detective who solves crimes even the most skilled San Francisco police detectives cannot. While I don't love every episode of Monk, I always get a kick out of the way Shalhoub embodies his character's many tics. I actually wish NBC were showing Monk from the beginning, so longtime fans could reminisce alongside new viewers seeing the show for the first time. Instead, they're just kind of jumping in with a random episode from the show's fifth season — but on the positive side, it guest-stars Andy Richter.
Psych, meanwhile, also jumps in with an episode from the middle of its run — the third installment of its second season, which finds the guys going head to head with the FBI and has its own very special guest star in Lou Diamond Phillips. Will you be checking out either show? To watch a clip of Shalhoub talking about his favorite Monk mysteries, just read more
First up is "Mr. Monk and the Man Who Shot Santa," which finds Monk looking like the enemy of holiday cheer after he shoots a man dressed as a mall Santa who was throwing toys off a roof. Monk just wants to figure out what the man was really doing there, but being painted as a Santa-shooting bad guy in the press interferes with his mission.
The plot of "Gus' Dad May Have Killed an Old Guy," meanwhile, is about what you'd expect from a title like that. The episode finds the Psych boys settling in for a good, old-fashioned Christmas . . . until a neighbor turns up murdered and the evidence points to Gus' dad.
Hey, nothing says "happy holidays!" like murder and mayhem, right? To check out previews for the two episodes, just read more
USA is making quite a name for itself this summer, between the success of "The Starter Wife" and the strong premiere of "Burn Notice." Tonight, two of its more established shows — "Monk" and "Psych" — return to start their new seasons, with a special appearance by Sarah Silverman on "Monk" as Monk's biggest fan.
This is the sixth season of "Monk," a consistent if not always spectacular drama that has delivered a boatload of well-deserved award nominations for star Tony Shalhoub. But now, Shalhoub has started to wonder if it's time to move on; his contract is up in November, and if he doesn't sign a new one, this season could be the show's last. "Psych," meanwhile, gained itself a strong following in its first season, mostly thanks to the silly interplay between stars James Roday and Dule Hill; it's even gotten some Emmy buzz, though it wasn't on the leaked list of comedy series finalists. To watch previews for both shows — the "Monk" one, in particular, perfectly showcases Shalhoub's charms while making me crave a Monk bobblehead — if you read more
USA really seems to like its screwed-up detectives. Two of the network's original series, "Monk" and "Psych," focus on crime-solvers who are unconventional at best — and total frauds at worst. New episodes of both shows start airing tonight, Jan. 19.
I'm not a huge fan of "Monk," but I do like watching Tony Shalhoub bumble his way through crime scenes as the everything-phobic Mr. Monk. And while I haven't seen "Psych," which focuses on a police consultant who pretends he's psychic, the presence of "The West Wing" alum Dule Hill as the sidekick might be enough to make me check it out.
