For anyone looking forward to seeing Seth Rogen and James Franco's new film, "The Interview" on Christmas day, it's time to find new plans. That's right, the action-comedy about a journalist and his producer's attempt to take out Kim Jong-un has been shelved indefinitely amid threats from hackers. Needless to say, this move has many people in an uproar, especially Hollywood's elite. Ben Stiller took to Twitter saying, "Really hard to believe this is the response to a threat to freedom of expression here in America." However, others have put a positive spin on the situation. Director and producer Judd Apatow also took to Twitter, saying, "This only guarantees that this movie will be seen by more people on Earth than it would have before." I would have to agree with Apatow on this one; the fact that the movie isn't going to be released just makes me want to see it even more!

Iggy Azalea has been one of the biggest acts of 2014, with the release of her debut album The New Classic, which launched songs like "Fancy," "Black Widow," and (most recently) "Beg For It. Her guest spot on Ariana Grande's hit, "Problem" also helped solidify the Australian rapper's presence in mainstream music. After headlining several Jingle Ball shows this season, it's no surprise that Iggy is ready to embark on her second headlining U.S. tour.
The Great Escape Tour will visit more than 20 cities, kicking off April 14, 2015, in Fresno, CA. It warps on May 24, 2015, in Austin, TX. On the tour, Iggy will be joined by Nick Jonas, formerly of The Jonas Brothers fame, who recently released his second solo album, led by the single "Jealous," which peaked at No. 5 on the U.S. Billboard Mainstream Top 40.

In recent memory, fans, analysts, coaches, and players have been yearning for a true college football playoff. Rather than seeing just the top two teams compete for a national championship, everyone has been determined to figure out a way to get four, eight, or sixteen teams to meet at the end of the season to determine the champion on the field, rather than through the polls. They got their wish this season and now four teams have a chance to claim a national championship for their school. This is the first ever College Football Playoff and the nation is eagerly awaiting to see how it will play out.
Despite the national fervor for this year’s playoff, ticket data on the secondary market indicates that ticket prices are still highly dependent upon where the game is taking place and who is actually playing. Each fan base is different, in both size, passion, and traveling tendencies, and that greatly affects how tickets are priced.
The nominees for the 2015 Golden Globes were announced this week, which has left many discussing the biggest snubs. First up is Amy Poehler — the host — who was nixed from the Best Actress in a TV Series category. Also missing from the TV nominees were Mindy Kaling for "The Mindy Project" (despite the fact that this year has been the best yet); Kerry Washington from "Scandal"; "Brooklyn Nine-Nine"; and "The Walking Dead" (which seems to be absent from most award shows all together, despite the fact that it pulls some of the highest numbers on television). As for movies, many were surprised by the lack of nominations for "Unbroken," directed by Angelina Jolie; the Christopher Nolan film "Interstellar"; and Ben Affleck's acting in "Gone Girl" (as the director, female lead, and screenplay all received nods).
