Brad Pitt Says 12 Years A Slave Made Him Grasp The Horror Of Slavery!

Filed under: TV NewsBrad PittFilm FlickersGIFs

You know a film is going to be good if Brad Pitt himself says that it's a prime example of why he got into the movie making business!

In an interview on the Today show, Brad talked with Ann Curry about what the making of 12 Years a Slave taught him, and what kind of lasting impact he thinks the film will leave:

"It wasn't until I saw the story that I fully fully grasped the utter horror of losing your freedom or denying another one their freedom, taking their freedom, splitting their family apart. It's abhorrent…I know what this film is. I've been around film long enough. I know the impact, and this one will have a continuing impact."

Whoa, sounds unbelievably powerful!

We reported earlier how Brad mentioned that this movie is why he got into film in the first place, and we sincerely hope this film comes in first place in Oscar nominations as well!

Brad also talked about how he'd let his oldest child Maddox watch the film, due to its cultural importance, and we could not agree more.

This film looks like it's going to tell an inspiring story about redemption and freedom, as well as an important history lesson about our nation's not so glamorous past!

We cannot wait for this film to make its impact on the big screen, and we could not be more excited to see it based on how excited Brad is!

Ch-ch-check out the interview…AFTER THE JUMP!!!

Good Morning America Reigns Supreme In Ratings; Today's Margin Of Defeat Worst In Twenty Years

Filed under: TV NewsBusiness Blitz

good morning america trumps today ratings historic rate 21 years

It's official — there's a new king in morning news!!!

For only the second time in nearly two decades, Good Morning America tallied higher viewership numbers this quarter than NBC's flailing competitor, Today.

Even more impressive? The ABC program's margin of victory!!!

Robin Roberts and George Stephanopoulos helped GMA secure outstanding ratings in the 25-54 news demographic, and their show posted the biggest advantage over Today in total-viewership numbers in 21 years!!!

While this is great news for all the fine folks at ABC, the suits over at NBC must be going ballistic because

Matt Lauer Flexes Meanie Muscle On Today AGAIN!? This Time Targeting Low-Level Staffers!

Filed under: Icky Icky PooTV NewsSad SadBusiness Blitz

matt lauer accused meanness today staffers demeaning dismissive

If these latest allegations are true, they're so totally disappointing!

NBC's Matt Lauer is apparently a big ole' "D" to his underlings at Today!

Three big D's, actually — he stands accused of being derogatory, demeaning, and dismissive to the hard-working members of his staff!

Good Morning America PUMMELED The Today Show during May sweeps, so we imagine the ratings decline is at least part of why Matt became such a meanie!

One source close to the situation reveals

Ann Curry Asked By NBC Execs To Secure First TV Interview With Angelina Jolie!

Filed under: TV NewsAngelina JolieHealthCancer

angelina jolie ann curry interview

Ann Curry and Angelina Jolie have built quite the rapport throughout their years in the industry. But that doesn’t mean Ann will be the first to interview the actress since the reveal of her double mastectomy…

A source has revealed that the former TODAY Show co-host has been asked by NBC to “convince [Angelina] to give her first television interview about the procedure.” Apparently, NBC wants to schedule a two-hour, primetime special for the interview in addition to a spot on TODAY.

The source added:

“Ann would be prominently featured in all of the promotions and publicity if Angelina agreed to do it… Angelina made it known after Ann was demoted from TODAY that the only journalist to interview her from the Peacock network would be Curry.”

Despite the fact that Angelina’s interview would garner HUGE ratings for the network that gets it, it seems Ann doesn’t feel right taking advantage of her friendship with the star.

Barbara Walters Was NOT Ann Curry-ed By ABC, She's Retiring From The View On Her Own Terms!

barbara walters the view retirement her own terms abc ann curry nbc

After hearing official word on her imminent departure, we're not at all ashamed to admit we spent much of Monday wiping away dried, salty tears from our face!!

Barbara Walters is retiring from The View in 2014 and the world sure will miss her charm, experience, and thoughtful insight!

We're elated she's beginning a new phase of her life, though, and THRILLED she has the clout to dictate her own terms!

Unlike the times NBC unceremoniously pushed out Jay Leno, Conan O'Brien, Ann Curry, and now Jay Leno again, ABC let their golden gal call all the shots!

Jay Leno's Tonight Show Ratings BOOM Confuses The Hell Out Of NBC Execs Trying To Can Him!

Filed under: TV NewsJay LenoJimmy FallonBusiness Blitz

jay leno ratings spike nbc tonight show jimmy fallon jimmy kimmel sweeps

Like Charlie Brown trying to kick a football, NBC just whiffed again!

In the past year, the flailing network needlessly torpedoed Ann Curry's career, completely bumbled the coverage of the Olympics, and even announced the premature death of astronaut rock legend Neil Young!

Replacing Jay Leno on The Tonight Show with the younger Jimmy Fallon is just about the only thing they did right!!

…Or did they?!
