The 67th annual Tony Awards rolled into Radio City Music Hall in NYC on Sunday to recognize achievements on Broadway. Host Neil Patrick Harris, who ran the show for the fourth time, walked the red carpet with David Burtka and kicked things off with a big musical number that included performers from almost a dozen Broadway musicals — as well as Mike Tyson dancing on stage. Best actor nominee Tom Hanks had wife Rita Wilson by his side, while Jake Gyllenhaal looked handsome in a crisp suit and bow tie after popping up at Spike TV's Guys Choice Awards on Saturday in LA. Annie's Jane Lynch took the stage to perform during the show but posed solo on the red carpet, where Modern Family's Jesse Tyler Ferguson, in a custom bow tie from his Tie the Knot organization, stuck by fiancé Justin Mikita's side. Presenter Anna Kendrick chose a Donna Karan Atelier gown, and past Tony winner Scarlett Johansson wore an all-black Saint Laurent ensemble for her onstage appearance with Alan Cummings.

The ladies stayed neutral on the Spike Scream Awards red carpet in LA on Saturday night. Nina Dobrev arrived black while Nikki Reed chose a fun one shoulder Alice and Olivia LBD. Neve Campbell represented the Scream franchise in a short, sparkly number and Anna Paquin stopped for a picture without her carpet companion Stephen Moyer to show off her sexy dress and Brian Atwood pumps. Presenter Blake Lively broke up all the black with a gray Lanvin gown on her way into the event. Check out PopUS's red carpet video for interviews with Nikki, Jackson Rathbone, Emma Roberts and more!
Things were a little more colorful inside with Megan Fox presenting in a peach mini and Kristen Stewart wearing bright white as she accepted two awards for Twilight. It was the vampires from True Blood that ruled the stage, though, as Alexander Skarsgard beat out Stephen Moyer for Best Horror Actor and their HBO hit took home the Best TV Show win. His girlfriend Kate Bosworth supported him from backstage and celebrated with his costars. The gang from Vampire Diaries, Nina, Ian Somerhalder, and Paul Wesley, presented Anna Paquin with Best Horror Actress. Halle Berry turned up the heat in a gold sequin dress and things got even hotter as Neve, David Arquette, Emma Roberts, and director Wes Craven introduced a scary clip from Scream 4. Ryan Reynolds rounded out the night's hottest men as his Green Lantern won Most Anticipated Movie. The show also paid tribute to past hits with a 25th anniversary celebration of Back to the Future and funny look at Bill Murray reprising his role in Ghost Busters.

The leading ladies of You Again, Kristen Bell and Odette Yustman, walked the red carpet together this week in Hollywood. Their respective fiancés, Dax Shepard and Dave Annable, were on hand for the big premiere, but both skipped the press line and let their ladies enjoy their time in the spotlight. Kristen, who looked stunning in a yellow Valentino dress and Brian Atwood pumps, spoke with PopUS about her Twitter campaign to make Veronica Mars into a movie. She said there's been no word from the studio yet, but is holding out hope that it happens "before I'm 40." Kristen's on-screen mum, Jamie Lee Curtis, turned heads as she and Sigourney Weaver showed up in the same David Meister dress. Jamie Lee and Sigourney play enemies in the film, as do Kristen and Odette, who revealed to us that she'll appear on Brothers & Sisters this season as Dave's on-screen love interest. Betty White, though, was the evening's most celebrated guest — 100 of her biggest fans, sporting Betty masks, turned up to show their support.

First things first, Baby Mama ain't rocket science. And why should it be? It's a likeable, smile-inducing comedy with a couple of super-talented ladies at the helm: Tina Fey and Amy Poehler.
Tina plays Kate Holbrook, a woman at the top of her game professionally, but slightly less so personally. Babies haunt her: everywhere she turns, there's a baby... it's kinda scary. But "I just don't like your uterus" says her doctor, and she's told she's unable to have a child herself. Enter hard up Angie (Poehler), who rents out her womb to Kate in return for a dollop of cash for her and on-again off-again man Carl (Dax Shepard). After their relationship flips to off again, Angie moves in with Kate and the fun begins!
Angie has many many less social graces than control-freak Kate, causing all kinds of awkwardness and a couple of gross-out moments, but despite all that they gradually become genuinely believable friends. The friendship between the two of them is one of the main draws of the movie for me.
