The SAG awards were incredible - please check out the interviews and photographs our correspondents gathered for you this weekend. For the complete list of nominees and winners please check here - we scored 5 out of 8 on our picks, not great but better than the Golden Globes.
Tonight is a huge night for Showtime with season premieres of "Secret Diary of a Call Girl", "Tracey Ullman's State of the Union", and the series premiere of "La La Land" - an ambush comedy project by British comedian Marc Wootton that is somewhat in the style of Sacha Baron Cohen but much more relevant to Los Angeles residents as they are his exclusive targets. "Call Girl" is very good this season, at least the 6 or so episodes we saw; Tracey Ullman fans will be more than satisfied with her offering which includes a couple new hilarious characters; and "La La Land" is entertained us for a lot of reasons, not the least of which was the familiarity of many of the settings.
Multi-Emmy-winning "Damages" also premieres tonight on FX at 10:00pm.
Today the the Planet Green channel is launching a new initiative on their website called "Save Our Slopes" in order to inform people of several sustainable skiing practices. Yes, ski resorts in California got several feet of new snow over the last week but the state is still experiencing drought conditions and the snowpack is 50% of what it needs to be in order to alleviate that. At the website there is footage of extreme skiing, the science behind the problem and possible solutions, as well as a contest to get some cool gear including solar-powered rechargers for electronics.
