Jamie Lee Curtis will be honored with the Lifetime Achievement Award at the 56th-annual International Cinematographers Guild (ICG) Publicists Awards, set for February 22nd at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, California.
The renowned actress has starred in over 55 films, winning multiple awards for her roles in “true Lies,” “Trading Places,” “A Fish Called Wanda,” “Freaky Friday” and more. She’s perhaps best known for her iconic starring role in “Halloween,” and starred in the 2018 reboot that earned one of the best opening weekends for the horror genre. She’s also a New York Times best-selling children’s book author, penning 13 books so far.
We previously reported rumors that a reboot of “Beverly Hills, 90210” was in the works… but it turns out that’s not true. Apparently, the cast has only been seen reuniting because they’re starring in an upcoming mockumentary-style show inspired by the 90s drama. So fans can at least be psyched about the cast’s reunion, but not as their “90210” characters.

The holidays have come and gone, but “Dr. Seuss’ The Grinch” is still hitting milestones. Although the film didn’t make enough in the box office to keep its spot on the top 10 this week, the movie has raked in more than $500 million worldwide.
That means “The Grinch” is now the highest-grossing holiday movie ever, beating the hit “Home Alone’s” $476 million. It’s also Illumination’s sixth film to cross the half-billion mark, along with “Despicable Me 2,” “Despicable Me 3,” “Minions,” “The Secret Life of Pets” and “Sing.”
That’s not all, the film is the third-biggest animated film of 2018 worldwide, behind Disney’s “Incredibles 2,” which made $1-point-two billion and “Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation,” which raked in $527 million. The fact that the studio produced “The Grinch” with $75 million of those earnings is just another reason to celebrate.
A Los Angeles federal judge has tossed Ashley Judd’s sexual harassment claim against Harvey Weinstein for a second time. To review, she filed a lawsuit against him in April, claiming he’d ruined her career because she refused to sleep with him. Judge Philip Gutierrez ruled that she couldn’t claim sexual harassment because she wasn’t actually working for him at the time. However, she could go forward on her claims of defamation and retaliation.
Meanwhile, Harvey’s criminal sexual assault case in New York City has a tentative court date of May 6th. His lawyer wants Ashley’s lawsuit put on hold until the criminal case is resolved. A pretrial hearing is set for March 7th.
Halsey’s latest single “Without Me” tops the “Billboard” Hot 100 this week, and now she’s released a new version of the track.
