Stars like Idris Elba, Oscar Isaac, Michael B. Jordan, and more have been invited to join the elite group, following the Oscars' #OscarsSoWhite controversy earlier this year.

For the 2016 ceremony, all 20 of the acting nominees were white, sparking outrage across the country.

But now, Academy President Cheryl Boone Isaacs is following through on her plan to include more female faces and diverse members in the mix, by also inviting stars like America Ferrera, Eva Mendes, John Boyega, Regina King, Anthony Anderson, and more.

Plus, transgender filmmakers and sisters Lana and Lilly Wachowski were also asked to become members!

Blake Lively Gives Hope For Sisterhood Of The Traveling Pants 3 — But Says It Would NOT Be For Teenage Girls!

no title

It seems like we've been waiting FOREVER for another sequel to Blake Lively's Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants — and though it's not a whole lot of promise, the blonde beauty just gave us a glimmer of hope!

Over 11 years ago, before Gossip Girl and Ryan Reynolds and motherhood, Lively starred in the instant classic flick alongside Amber Tamblyn, America Ferrera, and Alexis Bledel.

Three years later we even got a sequel.

Well now that it's been eight years since the followup and we're still waiting for a third flick after being teased, Blake told SiriusXM's Entertainment Weekly Radio on Tuesday that "it would have to be something that really made sense", adding:

"We wouldn't be making a movie for 16-year-olds again. We would be making a movie trusting that our audience grew up with us. I think that would be really interesting to explore."

Ch-ch-check out a snippet from Lively's full interview (below) to hear her talk about making another SotTP sequel!

The Sitcom Slaughter Continues! NBC Cancels Eva Longoria's Telenovela & Undateable!

| Filed under: TV NewsEva LongoriaJennifer LopezAmerica FerreraSad Sad

no title

It's that time of year where networks decide which shows to keep and which to take to the backyard and shoot.

ABC, The CW, and FOX have already axed several shows in their spring cleaning effort — including hit series like Nashville, Castle, and Agent Carter!

But NBC had it's own set of casualties — announcing that Eva Longoria's comedy Telenovela and improv-inclined sitcom Undateable would not live to make the Fall 2016 schedule!

Back in January 2015, Telenovela was ordered straight-to-series as part of NBC's larger push for diversity.

But unlike the Jennifer Lopez drama Shades of Blue, or the America Ferrera workplace comedy Superstore — which were both already renewed — Telenovela's lukewarm ratings were the proverbial kiss of death.

Despite little network marketing and a horrible Friday time slot, Undateable gave an impressive three season run — largely thanks to the cast of stand-up veterans like Chris D'Elia and Ron Funches.

The Bill Lawrence sitcom has been on the bubble of cancellation throughout its entire run, but even NBC's last ditch stunt to transform the show into Undateable Live! — featuring all live telecasts — couldn't stop this scrappy sitcom from its inevitable TV death.

The peacock network also gave the axe to freshman thriller Game Of Silence and medical drama Heartbeat — both of which totally flatlined in the ratings department.

Did your favorite shows survive the massacre so far?

Literal Whitewashing! America Ferrera Had To Paint Her Face White For An Audition That Wasn't Accepting Latinas!

This hurts us on so many levels.

As we previously reported, The New York Times interviewed 27 people in the entertainment industry who don't identify as straight, white males on their experiences in their fields.

We thought we heard the worst horror story America Ferrera ever had to endure when she talked about being told to "sound more Latina" while speaking English during an audition as a 16-year-old…

But we were wrong.

That's because she had an even more unsettling brush with racism when she had no choice but to literally whitewash herself to try to get a part, telling NYT:
