It was a big night for former All My Children star Michael B. Jordan (Ex-Reggie), as well as the cast of Fox’s Empire, at the 47th annual NAACP Image Awards broadcast on Friday night on TV One.

The motion picture Creed was the big winner of the night in the film category, winning every category it was in!  Jordan received not only Outstanding Actor in a Motion Picture for his work in the film, but also the evening’s highest honor of Entertainer of the Year. This year’s ceremonies were notable especially for taking place in the midst of an important debate about diversity, or the lack thereof, in Hollywood after many in the African-American film community felt snubbed at this year’s Academy Award nominations, especially because of critically-acclaimed films such as Straight Outta Compton being dissed.

In the television categories, it was Fox’s sudsy drama Empire that took home the prize for Outstanding Drama Series with its leading stars winning, too! Taraji P. Henson took home the award for her performance as Cookie Lyon in the Outstanding Actress in a Drama Series category.  Her counterpart, Terrence Howard (Lucious Lyon) won the prize in the Outstanding Actor in a Drama Series field.

The 47th Annual NAACP Awards were handed out at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium in Pasadena California.  For the complete list of winners click here.

I loved him as Reggie. I loved the whole Jack/Reggie story. When he was on AMC I could just tell he was going to be a star.

The Chew Cancelled After 7 Seasons; A Slice Of Justice For All My Children Fans?

Karma is a bitch! ABC announced yesterday that the foodie series The Chew has been axed after seven seasons. 

The Chew lost significant viewers when ABC fired main co-host chef, Mario Batali after reports of alleged sexual harassment over many years. Clinton Kelly, Carla Hall, and Michael Symon have remained the regular series hosts.

In addition, The Chew dropped 17% with women in the 18-49 demo and this has been its least watched season since its debut in 2011.  As ABC Daytime fans know, The Chew replaced iconic soap opera All My Children, when ABC made the decision to cancel the beloved soap and replace it with the food show.

So, let’s take a look at the numbers: All My Children lasted 41 years, while The Chew lasted 7 seasons. Hmm …

ABC noted that The Chew will cease production at the end of this season, but will continue to air until September with all-new episodes in June.  In addition, ABC announced that Good Morning America will expand to three hours.  Thus, switching up the ABC morning line-up.

So, are you glad that The Chew got fried?  Is this justice for All My Children fans who miss their beloved Pine Valley?  Comment below.

Pine Valley’s Jenny Gardner, who is all grown up and had a successful career in primetime television and films, has landed a primo role on NBC’s hit drama, Chicago Fire!

Casting news has revealed that Kim Delaney is joining the show in Season 6 where she will play the role of Jennifer Sheridan, the mother of Kelly Severide (Taylor Kinney).

According to Deadline, Kim’s new role as Jennifer Sheridan is described as “warm, scripture-quoting and church-going. At one point she may have partied like it was 1979, but now it looks like she’s on the path of the straight and narrow. If you ask her, she’s moved on from the past, namely her messy divorce from her ex-husband Benny (Treat Williams), but old habits die very hard.”

Chicago Fire is currently on hiatus until after the Winter Olympics, when it begins again on March 1st.  As viewers know, in the last episode prior to the break, Kelly and Casey (Jesse Spenver) were seen jumping off a roof of a building while it was in flames in an exciting cliffhanger. (more…)
