  Meryl Streep completely bombs a quiz about her own Oscar nominations Meryl Streep is a woman of many talents — see also her 20 Oscar nominations, and counting — but handling a quiz, even when it’s about said nominations, isn’t one of them. During Streep’s appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live Monday night to promote her latest film, The Post (for which she’s likely to earn a 21st nomination come Jan. 23), host Jimmy Kimmel, who’s also emceeing the Academy Awards on March 4, challenged her: “In 60 seconds, how many of those 20 movies for which you were nominated for an Academy Award are you able to name? And if you name them, I’ll give you this bonus Oscar.” © Provided by TIME Inc.

E! defends Catt Sadler's pay gap: 'A lot of misinformation' .
E! is defending the pay gap that led to the departure of E! News host Catt Sadler. E! chief Frances Berwick (president of Lifestyle Networks at NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment) told reporters at the Television Critics Association’s press tour in Pasadena, California, on Tuesday that slams of the network were not deserved — and that outsiders were operating from a lack of information. “There is a lot of misinformation out there,” Berwick said. “Catt Sadler and Jason Kennedy had different roles and therefore different salaries. Catt was focused on daytime. Jason Kennedy is on primetime evening news, plus red carpet. Our employee’s salaries are based on their roles and their expertise regardless of gender. We wish Catt well, but I hope that sets the record straight on that.” Sadler left the network after reportedly discovering a “massive” disparity between her and colleague Jason Kennedy’s salary. During Sunday’s Golden Globes red carpet pre-show, E! was called out by actresses Debra Messing, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Eva Longoria live on the network. “I was so shocked to hear that E! doesn’t believe in paying their female cohost the same as their male cohost,” Messing said Sunday. “I miss Catt Sadler. So we stand with her. And that’s something that can change tomorrow. We want people to start having this conversation that women are just as valuable as men.” On social media, Julianne Moore, Brie Larson, and Amy Schumer also lent their support.
