Dick Van Dyke's Illness Causes Him To Cancel NYC Appearance

Filed under: Sad SadHealthSick

Aww man, this is sad.

Dick Van Dyke was set to make an appearance at Manhattan's 92nd Street Y, where he was gonna be presented with the organization's first Lifetime Achievement Award for Bettering Humanity through Comedy, but after his rep told Entertainment Tonight that he can't go due to an illness, we became worried!!

Van Dyke's rep said:

"[Dick has] fatigue and lack of sleep resulting from symptoms of a yet-to-be diagnosed neurological disorder."

The 87-year-old comedian is currently staying in his Malibu home with his wife Arlene, and all we can hope is that he gets better.

Stay strong, Dick!

Spanish Horror Director Jess Franco Dies At 82 After Suffering A Stroke

Filed under: Film FlickersR.I.P.Sad Sad

spanish horror director jesus franco dies at 82 after suffering stroke

The horror movie genre lost a big name today as spanish director Jesus "Jess" Franco died at the age of 82 after suffering a stroke.

Jess' film career spans over 50 years, starting in the mid 1950's and continuing up until his death. In that time, he has written and directed nearly 200 films.

You might not be familiar with too much of his work, as none of his films received any mainstream success. But his 1962 breakthrough film The Awful Dr. Orlof earned him a cult following and cemented his place in the exploitation horror genre.

In addition to dealing with horror, many of Jess' films also earned X-ratings for their erotic nature, which can be seen in classics such as Venus in Furs and Vampyros Lesbos.

In 2009, he was given the lifetime achievement award at the annual Goya Film Awards in Madrid, Spain.

Rest in peace, Jess.

Angelina Jolie Is An Understated Beauty At The American Society of Cinematographers Awards

Angelina Jolie wears Atelier Versace to the American Society of Cinematographers Awards

Hey, Angie, it's been a while!

Too long, if you ask us!

Angelina Jolie has been a no-show at all of the recent awards shows, so imagine our surprise when she was spotted attending the American Society of Cinematographers Awards where she presented the Lifetime Achievement Award to Dean Semler.

We have to ask: why did she attend this awards show and not the Globes or SAGs??? We've missed her!

The gorgeous actress wore a simple, gray Atelier Versace dress with a surplice neckline and three-quarter sleeves, pairing it with silver Christian Louboutin peep-toe pumps.

It was a very understated outfit, but Angie looked lovely nonetheless.

A simple, low ponytail and barely-there makeup completed her look.

Fingers crossed we see more of Miz Jolie soon! At the Oscars, perhaps?

Hey, we can dream, can't we?! Ha!
