In an interview, Revenge's showrunner Sunil Nayyar talked about whether or not Emily would survive the show's conclusion. "Regardless of how the story ends, there has to be something bittersweet to it, because of all the losses that have come along the way and because of everything that’s happened. Her appearance in the Hamptons at the beginning of the show has caused a ripple effect that has led to victories and losses that are so epic that I think it will be hard – however it is we choose to end her story – for her to just walk away feeling perfect about everything."
Pointing to Confucius's proverb “Before you embark on a journey of revenge, dig two graves,” he added "Whether she lives or die, honestly we don’t know yet. That is such a moving thesis for the show, because there is such loss that comes with this journey. What’s interesting to me about how she would finish this journey is what sense of victory does she take and who does she get to walk away with, if she walks away at all?"

- Talks to Shape magazine about her fitness, marriage, spirituality
- How her routine has changed over the years: 'My trainer and I are into reps instead of heavy weights because the goal is now about sculpting,'
- Her secret routine is walking up 34 flights of stairs at her apartment building.
- Intellectual discussions with Will are a turn on: 'Will and I were just reading The Tao of Physics by Fritjof Capra together and having long discussions about it. We love books about religion and spiritual expression.
'It's a big turn on for me to be spiritually and intellectually challenged by Will. To me, it's like foreplay.
'Of course, I enjoy that I have sex in my relationship, but I think this other intellectual aspect is quite unique and something that strongly connects us.'
Rita Ora teased her legions of fans by posting a new teaser for her character Mia Grey in 'Fifty Shades of Grey'. The first promo for her character was hugely criticized after rabid fans of the highly sexual and addictive book series have trashed her look in the movie. That tragic look has been compared to Alice Cullen from the Twilight Saga.
Earlier this year, Rita Ora has disappointed fans when she said she won't be "the most sexual in this movie...I mean, it's to save your own eyes, really!"
'Fifty Shades of Grey' will open 45 days from now, on Valentine's Day 2015.

Are you ready for this movie, ONTD?
5. The Babadook
Directed by: Jennifer Kent
Over the past several weeks, The Babadook has earned extensive critical acclaim and become one of the most buzzed-about horror films of the year. It’s also one of two movies on this list that also made it onto BuzzFeed film critic Alison Wilmore’s list of the best films of 2014. And with good reason! The Babadook is a simple but truly frightening horror film, and the creepy boogeyman at its center isn’t even the scariest thing about it. Amelia (Essie Davis) is a widow who can barely keep control of her hyperactive son Samuel (Noah Wiseman), whose rich imagination begins to get the better of her. While the Babadook itself is scary, Amelia’s insomnia-inspired descent into madness, which manifests in the form of rage and ambiguous delusions, is worse. How much of the threat is real and how much is in the heads of Amelia and her son? It’s terrifying either way.
Directed by: Stewart Thorndike
Lyle has been described as a “lesbian Rosemary’s Baby,” which is both entirely accurate and limiting. Yes, the plot — about a pregnant woman named Leah (Gaby Hoffmann) who is convinced there’s a conspiracy around her unborn child — owes a lot to Rosemary’s Baby, with a distinctly queer flavor. But Lyle is also a very different movie, exploring the loss Leah feels after the death of her first child (the titular Lyle) and her growing distance from her wife June (Ingrid Jungermann). Hoffmann is tremendous as always: Within the confines of a 65-minute micro-budget film, she manages to display varying degrees of grief, madness, and horror that — along with Stewart Thorndike’s tight script and direction — elevate Lyle past its already intriguing logline.
3. Under the Skin
Directed by: Jonathan Glazer
Jonathan Glazer’s bizarre arthouse film might not be considered horror by many, but its aims are deeply rooted in the genre. Under the Skin is a movie about the male gaze. As my colleague Alison Willmore puts it, “It confronts the very idea of what we do at the movies: watch.” Scarlett Johansson’s nameless alien creature lets the men she encounters look at her, but only so she can kill them — without touching them at all, it’s worth noting. Horror is often criticized as misogynistic, but so many horror films traffic in the same subversion and turn a knowing eye back on the viewer. Under the Skin isn’t a traditional horror or sci-fi film — but there’s really nothing traditional about it. Thematically, however, it’s about confronting the realities of the way men look at women and the destructiveness of sexual desire. What could be more horrifying than that?
2. The Guest
Directed by: Adam Wingard
Like Under the Skin, The Guest’s designation as a horror film might furrow some brows, even if it is Adam Wingard and Simon Barrett’s follow-up feature to You’re Next, my pick for the best horror film of 2013. Yes, The Guest is an action thriller, but the setup is pure horror: David Collins (Dan Stevens) claims to be a vet returning home to visit the family of his fallen fellow soldier, but turns out to be not what he seems. While the false identity narrative is familiar, Barrett’s predictably sharp script takes the film to unexpected places. At the helm, Wingard has an eye for tense action set pieces, of which there are many. The Guest is a full-speed, anxiety-inducing ride that all comes down to the brilliant final sequence, set in an otherwise unremarkable high school haunted house.
1. A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night
Directed by: Ana Lily Amirpour
Another genre-bender, A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night is a stunning feature-length debut from Ana Lily Amirpour. Promoted as “the first Iranian vampire Western,” the film doesn’t falsely advertise. But beyond its inventive premise, it’s gorgeously shot and scored, making it one of the most stylish and memorable films of the year. Sheila Vand stars as the Girl, a vampire who preys on the residents of Bad City and makes time for a romance with Arash (Arash Marandi). As one of several female-driven horror films on this list, A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night is searingly feminist. The Girl’s righteous revenge against the evil men who rule Bad City is exceptional wish fulfillment, but she also demands a love story on her own terms, leaving Arash to accept her as she is. It’s all so satisfying to watch, and even more so when you realize Amirpour has, one hopes, a long career of daring and effortlessly hip films ahead.

The first actor to win back-to-back Oscars (The Great Ziegfeld, 1937 / The Good Earth, 1938) before leaving Hollywood for decades, died at her home in London after a bout with pneumonia. She was 104.
Rainer disappeared from screens in the 1940's, citing sub-par scripts and Hollywood materialism as the downfall of the industry. She returned to the European stage where she began, periodically returning to US television to appear on an episode of The Love Boat in 1984, and as part of "Oscar's Family Album" at the 1997 Academy Awards.
She remains one of three performers (others: Hilary Swank and Vivien Leigh) to maintain a 2-0 record of Best Actress wins in Academy history.
any old-hollywood-queen fans up in here?
One Direction, Adele & Beyonce have reportedly been victims of the same hackers that have been causing havoc for Sony Pictures. Sony is shitting bricks over the situation because the hackers might have gotten their hands on music files that are to be released at a later date.

Sam Raimi: "Each and every one of those Spider-Man movies were pretty damn challenging."
"I messed up plenty with the third Spider-Man, so people hated me for years — they still hate me for it. It's a movie that just didn't work very well."
Raimi now feels it was "wrong" of him to make the trilogy's final film because he "didn't really believe in all the characters."
Gwyneth Paltrow covers the February issue of Harper's Bazaar UK. In the accompanying interview, she talks about her "conscious uncoupling", her film roles, and sisterhood.
on sisterhood and criticism from other women:“Women really need to examine why they’re so vitriolic to other women; why they want to twist words, why they want to read about someone else in a negative light and why that feels good to them… But I also know a huge tribe of women who are loving and supportive of other women, in ways that are completely transformative.”
on women's right to define themselves:“I think we are a generation of women who are different in a lot of respects, and some of us want to be ambitious, and for it not to be a dirty word. We want to be feminine and soft, we want to be maternal, we want to be sexual, we want to be explorers – and we can be a combination of all of these archetypes. You can be powerful, but you can also be vulnerable… [I have] learnt the power of kindness and the importance of non-judgemental ways of looking at others.”
a bit part about Pepper Potts:“I don’t know. I’d like to do it. But they might swap me out for an 18-year-old Pepper Potts or something.”

Kanye West backs Idris Elba to take on James Bond role http://t.co/zk5fjuKzdh— Daily Mail Celebrity (@DailyMailCeleb) December 30, 2014
-Kanye tells The Sun'I know Idris a little bit and he is a big talent. The movies he has been making are special, and when the role for James Bond comes up it needs to be his.'
-He also says: 'James Bond is a role made for British actors and you won't find a British actor who has the talent of Idris. To be honest you won't find many anywhere who have his talent.

ONTD, do you think Madonna is just really bad at fractions?
Bowie you say...
-Although Caesars Entertainment would love for Jenny to perform a 30-show per year residency, the good sis JLo is simply asking for too much money, making it "impossible" for a Vegas residency to become reality at this point. One exec had this to say: “There’s no way the numbers can work out for a residency with just 4,000 seats. She’s an arena act now, but hopefully one day she’ll see the advantages of staying put in one place for less money than touring,”.
-Thus as of now there are no official plans to bring JLo to the Vegas strip for any extended period of time. There are plans however to bring her once-rival diva, Mariah Carey to town.
-The latest rumor is that in two weeks, Caesars will announce the five-time Grammy winner as the new headliner of the iconic Colosseum venue. No confirmation yet as to whether Mariah will act as a substitute for Celine Dion, the previous headliner of the Colosseum, who has taken a break from performing choosing to be with her ailing husband instead.
-Chronicles his relationship as he came out of the closet.
-At first he didn't like his current boyfriend Vito, and didn't talk to him at all for the first two years that the two knew each other.
-They started dating after Sam became close to the university swim team, which Vito was apart of.
-When Sam was closeted Vito would sneak in and out of his apartment through the window.
ONTD have you ever been in a closeted relationship? Did it work?
