Comic Book: Next Stop on the Betty White World Domination Tour

Bettywhite

Betty White is getting her own comic book, according to The Hollywood Reporter:

"The 88-year-old actress, who has experienced a career comeback on the heels of a Snickers Super Bowl commercial and much-lauded Saturday Night Live hosting job, will be drawn as a cartoon for "Female Force: Betty White," to be produced by Bluewater Productions. The 32-page book will hit stores in November and will retail for $3.99...Added the book's writer, Patrick McCray, 'Working on the Betty book was an honor and a blast. While covering a new entertainer is always fun, there is something special about profiling an icon. Not only did it allow me to savor nostalgia, it also let me catch up on areas of pop culture that had passed me by.'"


Modern Family, Glee, Betty White - All Win At The Emmys

Eric
Some pretty big wins at the Emmys tonight. Modern Family picked up three big awards, including the trophy for Outstanding Comedy and Supporting Actor for Eric Stonestreet, who plays one half of the gay couple on the show. Jane Lynch, Neil Patrick Harris and Ryan Murphy all picked up awards for Glee, which inspired a pretty cool opening number. Betty White won her 7th Emmy for her Facebook-initiated gig on Saturday Night Live earlier this year.

Take a peek at the complete list of winners, as well as the aforementioned energetic opening skit, AFTER THE JUMP.

Movies: Fall Film Preview

FALLFILMPREVIEW
Carey Mulligan and Keira Knightley look ahead to awards season

GuestbloggerNATHANIEL ROGERS
...watches trailers through fingers (too many spoilers) and waits impatiently for the feature presentation. He blogs daily at the Film Experience.


With summer winding down and nothing thrilling opening in theaters (despite marquees suggesting otherwise), it's the perfect time to look both backwards and forwards. Now's the time to catch up with some of 2010's best in case you missed any. Some of them like I Am Love, Joan Rivers: A Piece of Work, The Kids Are All Right, Winter's Bone and Toy Story 3 are still in theaters. Other acclaimed first quarter releases like Fish Tank and South Korea's Mother have hit DVD. So get caught up before the Fall films hit.

As with the summer preview, we're dividing the intriguing offerings up into categories using handy film titles because You Gotta Have A Gimmick. For each month we'll look at THE CHAMP (a possible blockbuster), DIVA (fierce women),  THE PRESTIGE (Oscar hopefuls), WHERE THE BOYS ARE (for the hotness) and TRUE STORIES (documentaries or fact-based fiction). Obviously what follows is but a small sampling of what's to come. All in good time...

Have you seen Betty White and Sigourney Weaver's catfight with Kristen Bell? The ladies of You Again get their claws out AFTER THE JUMP...

Here's the First Hoodie from Betty White's New Clothing Line

Bettywhite

WWD reports that the last living Golden Girl is now branching into fashion:

"For an 88-year-old, Betty White has more street cred than people a quarter of her age. After appearing on “Saturday Night Live” with Jay-Z (and earning the TV show its best ratings in 18 months) and landing a new comedy series called 'Hot in Cleveland,' White is launching her own line of T-shirts and hoodies that will hit stores in August. Through an exclusive licensing deal with Jerry Leigh Apparel, a Van Nuys, Calif.-based clothing manufacturer, White’s smiling face was recast as a striking black-and-white mug with her first name outlined in red. Targeting the digital generation, the hoodies feature washable earbuds and a jack to plug into iPods and MP3 players. Portions of sales for the $28 Ts and $48 hoodies will go to the Morris Animal Foundation, an animal health organization, for which White serves as a trustee."

I wonder if Barbara Kruger (sorry, closer to Shepard Fairey "OBEY", as Matt points out to me) is getting royalties?
