Harry Shum Jr. Named Ambassador for the 2019 SAG Awards
Make way for the 2019 SAG Awards' new ambassador! Harry Shum Jr. has claimed the coveted spot this year—and deservedly so, as he's appeared on both the big and small screens. Most notably, perhaps, is his role as Magnus Bane on Freeform's Shadowhunters: The Mortal Instruments, which earned him the Male TV Star of 2018 award at the E! People's Choice Awards last month. Shum, of course, also starred as Charlie Wu in Warner Bros.' Crazy Rich Asians. And let's not forget he is a former SAG Award winner (Outstanding Ensemble in a Comedy Series) for his work on Glee. The actor, who last month announced that he and wife Shelby Robara are having a baby girl, can add this new title to...

Why a Scripted Selena Quintanilla Series Is Netflix's Best Decision

Netflix is no stranger to taking on the stories of real-life people. There are hit docuseries like Making a Murderer about Steven Avery and the upcoming Conversation with a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes, and historical scripted dramas like The Crown about Queen Elizabeth II and Narcos, which tells the story drug kingpin Pablo Escobar. The streaming platform is doing it again with Tejano music legend Selena Quintanilla. The just-announced Selena: The Series will be scripted—and that's the best decision Netflix could make.

Amy Poehler Is Ready For a Parks and Rec Reunion, and Um, Same!

Amy Poehler Is Ready For a Parks and Rec Reunion, and Um, Same!
It's been three years since we tearfully bid adieu to Parks and Recreation, and we've pretty much been pining for a reboot ever since the emotional series finale aired. As it turns out, dedicated fans aren't the only ones on board with the idea of reuniting Pawnee's finest - leading lady Amy Poehler is, too. "I'm technically available," Poehler said at the 10th anniversary celebration dinner of Smart Girls, the organization she founded. "I have like six of Leslie's blazers in my closet, so anytime."

From 2009 to 2015, Poehler played the role of Leslie Knope, the competitive deputy director of the Pawnee Parks and Recreation Department, a proud waffle-lover, and an even prouder feminist. When the NBC sitcom ended, there were hints that Leslie would go on to become president. While addressing the possibility of a reunion, Poehler said she hadn't given much thought to Leslie's storyline, adding that maybe she'd be "president of the moon.

Camilla Posing With a Tiny Pony Called Harry Is the Holiday Gift You Didn't Know You Needed
If you thought the cutest royal photos of 2018 would feature one of the young royals, you were sorely mistaken. Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis played a good game, but they've just been pipped to the post by a cute redhead called Harry. No, not that one. This Harry is a mini Shetland pony, and he totally stole the spotlight as he made the acquaintance of the Duchess of Cornwall when she attended a Christmas Carol Service for the animal welfare charity Brooke Action for Working Horses and Donkeys in London on Wednesday.

The pair, who I like to think are now best friends, were also joined by Ollie the donkey, who has definitely been perfecting his photo face for some time. The three were photographed at the Guards chapel in Westminster, and from the look on Camilla's face, we think she was pretty overwhelmed by the adorable little pony.
