The Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) announced the 70th Golden Globe Awards nominees this morning. The nominations were revealed at an event in Los Angeles at 5:15 a.m. local time.

In film, Lincoln led the 2013 Golden Globe nominations with seven nominations, followed by Django Unchained and Argo with five apiece.

The surprises here come in the form of Richard Gere for Best Actor in a Drama, who has been on the outskirts of the awards race up until now, finally getting recognition for his great performance as a troubled hedge fund manager. The HFPA seemed to adore Salmon Fishing in the Yemen, as it walked away with three nominations for Best Picture Musical or Comedy, and Best Actor and Actress Musical or Comedy for Ewan McGregor and Emily Blunt.

Nicole Kidman continued to surge in the Oscar race, picking up another nomination for Best Supporting Actress in The Paperboy after yesterday’s SAG nomination. Having not been able to screen the film for SAG guild members, Django Unchained enjoyed a nice turnout for the Golden Globes, as both Leonardo Dicaprio and Christoph Waltz made it into Best Supporting Actor, along with Best Director, Screenplay, and Picture noms.

In terms of notable snubs, indie darling Beasts of the Southern Wild was completely shut out of the Golden Globes nominations list. Despite getting four nominations apiece, Les Miserables failed to garner a Best Director nod for Tom Hooper, while Robert De Niro was shut out of Best Supporting Actor for Silver Linings Playbook.

Despite a serious awards season push, Matthew McConaughey failed to pick up a nomination for his terrific turn in Magic Mike.

Fox has moved the third and final Maze Runner movie to 2018.

The cast and crew were only a few days into filming The Death Cure in March when Dylan O’Brien suffered serious injuries on set, prompting the production to be put on a break so he could recover. When his recovery ended up taking longer than expected, the production was put on an indefinite hold.

Now, a plan to resume the shoot seems to be in place. Fox announced Friday The Death Cure will be hitting theaters January 12, 2018, which is nearly a year later than the original February 2017 date. The last Maze Runner movie, The Scorch Trials, opened last September.

Production on The Maze Runner: The Death Cure likely won’t resume until late this year or early next. Dylan O’Brien has already committed to another movie which is expected to shoot this summer.

Getting the rest of the cast and crew back together to shoot The Maze Runner finale may be a bit of a challenge since they may’ve committed to other projects that were supposed to be shooting after they finished The Maze Runner. However, the new Death Cure release date suggests Fox has found a time that’ll work for everyone.

Tom Cavanagh will return to The Flash in season 3 as a series regular, though which character he’ll be playing remains to be seen.

Cavanagh has had a unique acting challenge on The Flash, playing a different version of his character in each of the first two seasons — and now it looks like he’ll be doing it for a third season in a row, as EW confirms that he will be a series regular in season 3.

In season 1, Cavanagh played Eobard Thawne, aka the Reverse Flash, in Harrison Wells’ body. Thawne, after traveling back in time, killed the original Wells and took his form to expedite the development of the particle accelerator so he could return to his own time. Thawne was written out of existence in the season 1 finale, though, leaving fans curious about who Cavanagh would be playing in season 2.

This past season, Cavanagh played the Earth-2 version of Harrison Wells, nicknamed Harry, who was a significantly different character from the man we thought was Wells in season 1. However, in the season 2 finale, Harry and his daughter, Jesse, returned to Earth-2.

The Flash season 2, episode 6 recap Wells

So, who does that leave for Cavanagh to play in the third season?

My guess would be the Earth-1 version of Harrison Wells, who we only briefly met in a flashback in season 1. Why the original Wells? Because in the final moments of the season 2 finale, Barry traveled back in time and stopped Thawne from killing his mother. This means the timeline in which Thawne killed Wells and took his form no longer exists, so Earth-1 Wells would be the version left alive.

Assuming he does play the original version of the character, the one who was killed and had his identity stolen, it will be interesting to see Cavanagh inhabit yet another version of the character. While we already met Wells briefly in the flashback to his death, that was a small sample size. I look forward to seeing him differentiate another Wells from those he’s already played for entire seasons.

Are you excited to see more Tom Cavanagh on ‘The Flash’?

‘Glee’ alum Mark Salling indicted on child pornography charges

The actor is facing a lot of jail time.

4:55 pm EDT, May 27, 2016

Following an arrest in December, Glee star Mark Salling (who played Puck on the Fox series) is now facing child pornography charges.

A federal grand jury has charged the 33-year-old actor with two counts of child pornography after a search of his home turned up “thousands” of images and videos involving children, TMZ reports. He will be arraigned in early June.

Salling’s charges potentially come with big sentences: 5 to 20 years in prison for receiving child porn, and another 20 years for possessing it.

After Glee went off air last year, Salling has worked on only one project: The action movie Adi Shankar’s Gods and Secrets which is slated to hit theaters later this year.

The actor has been in trouble with the law before — he was sued for sexual battery in 2013.
