Trump Administration’s ‘Alternative Facts’ Inspires Baseball Team’s Pig Mascot Name

Kellyanne Conway’s comment on “alternative facts” has already gone down in political folklore.

It’s now being further preserved in the shape of Minnesota baseball team The St. Paul Saints’ new pig mascot — which it has named Alternative Fats, the Star Tribune reports.

The porker follows previous pigs Little Red Porkette, Stephen Colboar, Boarack Ohama, Kim Lardashian, Kevin Bacon, and Mackleboar as the side’s lucky charm.

Club officials revealed its new mascot’s name via a statement online Wednesday, which itself was packed with what are undoubtedly also alternative facts.

Alternative Fats will enter the field each game like no other pig before him, with a white ground covering draped from his mansion-style pigpen to home plate for the billions of Saints fans to shower him with love and admiration,” it read.

“Alternative Fats will be so HUUUUGE it will make all other pigs jealous,” the press release continued, before claiming the swine would “go down in the pantheon of the greatest mascot names in the history of sports.”

Other suggestions not to make the cut included Boar’d of Trump, Ham Jong Un and Pigimir Putin.

Conway, one of President Donald Trump’s advisers, initially made the comment in January while defending White House press secretary Sean Spicer to NBC’s Chuck Todd on “Meet The Press.”

The Saints have also spoofed that encounter with this YouTube video:

Melissa McCarthy Spins The Facts As Sean Spicer On ‘Saturday Night Live’

Melissa McCarthy paid a surprise visit to studio 8H last night to take on the role of White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer for “Saturday Night Live.” To put it plainly, she nailed it.

The actress channeled an angry Spicer, spewing “alternative facts” and firing insults at the journalists in the room. 

“Before we begin, I know that myself and the press have gotten off to a rocky start,” McCarthy as Spicer shouted. “When I say ‘rocky start,’ I mean it in the sense of ‘Rocky’ the movie, because I came out here to punch you! In the face!” 

McCarthy was spot-on throughout the whole sketch, never missing a cue and never breaking character. How she managed to remain serious, we have no idea. Surely, though, President Donald Trump and/or Spicer will have something to say about it. 

Watch the whole sketch above. Trust us, it’s worth it.

David Beckham and UNICEF Fight Back Over Alleged Hacked Emails: ‘Let the Facts Speak for Themselves’

David Beckham is responding to reports he allegedly used his UNICEF charity work to campaign for a knighthood.

“This story is based on outdated material taken out of context from hacked and doctored private emails from a third party server and gives a deliberately inaccurate picture,” a spokesperson for Beckham tells PEOPLE in a statement. 

“David and UNICEF have had a powerful partnership in support of children for over 15 years. The David Beckham 7 Fund specifically has raised millions of pounds and helped millions of vulnerable children around the world,” the statement continued.

Beckham has been a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador since 2005.

On Friday, British newspaper The Sun published reportedly leaked emails between Beckham and his publicist from 2013 where they discussed the soccer star working on securing a knighthood in 2013. (Beckham was awarded an OBE, or Order of the British Empire, in 2003.) After Beckham allegedly complained that British singer Katherine Jenkins was awarded an OBE and calling it “a f—— joke,” Beckham’s rep urged him to focus his energy on his charitable efforts.

Beckham also allegedly railed against the committee who decides who get the honors, calling them “a bunch of c—-” and saying he “expected nothing less.”

“It’s a disgrace to be honest and if I was American I would of got something like this ten years ago,” Beckham allegedly said.

In February 2015, Beckham launched the 7 Fund to raise funds and awareness for vulnerable children by focusing on seven different countries and seven different initiatives.

“David has given significant time and energy and has made personal financial donations to the 7 Fund and this commitment will continue long term,” the statement added. “Before establishing the 7 Fund, David had supported UNICEF and a number of other charities over many years, including donating his entire earnings from PSG during his time playing there.”

Concluding, “David and UNICEF are rightly proud of what they have and will continue to achieve together and are happy to let the facts speak for themselves.”

RELATED VIDEO: A David Beckham Underwear Ad with a Twist!

On Friday, UNICEF released a statement, defending their partnership with Beckham.

“Some reports relate to alleged private correspondence between our ambassador and other parties, which we have not seen and cannot comment upon,” the statement read. “David Beckham has been a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador since 2005, and as well as generously giving his time, energy and support to help raise awareness and funds for UNICEF’s work for children, David has given significant funds personally.”

The organization also noted Beckham’s last UNICEF trip in June 2016 when he traveled to Africa to visit children living with HIV, who are receiving support from his charity 7 and UNICEF.

In addition to his reported complaints about not getting a knighthood, the alleged emails also included Beckham’s supposed reluctance to donate his own money to charity and his rep urging the soccer star not to post a photo of his gold-plated laptop on social media so as not to ruin his “man of the people” reputation.

‘Sinister 2’ and Eerie Twin Facts

Sinister 2, the sequel to the 2012 sleeper hit horror film, hits theaters this week. The films stars (Shannyn Sossamon of Wayward Pines) and picks up in the aftermath of the shocking events of Sinister. Sossamon plays a protective mother of 9-year-old twin sons (real-life brothers Robert and Dartanian Sloan). The small family finds themselves in a rural house marked for death as the evil spirit of Bughuul continues to spread with frightening intensity.

The twins are used as pawns in an evil plot drummed up by the spirit of Bughuul, to wreak havoc and terror.

So I thought I’d take this opportunity to share some spooky twin facts:

• Some cultures used to believe that twins share one soul

• Other cultures viewed twins as a bad omen sent by the Gods

• Ancient societies believed that one twin is always good and the other is evil

• Dogs can tell twins apart when people can’t

• A pair of conjoined twins share a neural bridge making it

• Possible for them to literally read each other’s minds

• 40 percent of twins invent their own language

• twins are multiplying up 76 percent since 1980

For more twin facts, click here.

I sat down with stars Shannon Sossamon and James Ransone below, to discuss their take on horror films and what makes them so enticing. I also wanted to know what their favorite horror films were growing up and shared a few of my own.

Take a look.

Sinister 2 is out in theaters August 21, 2015

4 Fun (And Semi-Depressing) Facts About Midlife

When I was 20, I didn’t spend much time thinking about what it would be like to be…well…old. My forties and fifties seemed like they were a helluva long way off…mostly because they were. If I’d have stopped to think about what midlife would look like, I’d probably imagine myself wearing polyester stretch pants, pantyhose with reinforced toes and that thing you wear around your neck where you push a button that alerts 911 if you “fall and can’t get up.” And sensible shoes. Lots of sensible shoes.

I’m happy to report most of my trousers still zip (they have zippers, anyway). I haven’t needed the emergency buzzer, the clapper or the grabber, although I do appreciate the value of a good pair of support hose. Even though my actual midlife experience isn’t what twenty year old me might have envisioned, I still have some fun, semi-depressing facts about midlife I’d like to share with young women everywhere.

Pay attention, bitches…I’m trying to scare the snot out of you. Why? Do I really need a reason, beyond that it’s fun?

Comfort: your underwear’s most important feature.

I’m not saying there’s no place in your life and lingerie drawer for sassy, sexy bloomers but comfort is the front runner. Support is a close second. I might still let my freak flag fly on occasion but I’m past the point where I’ll worry if hubs sees me in sensible undies. It is what it is. Thong on for now, but your time is coming. Trust me.

Dark hair sprouts randomly on your face and body.

I don’t care if your God-given hair color is platinum blonde. Stray hairs are black and crinkly (kind of like pubes.) Always. It’s a rule or something. Most often sighted on chins, these little suckers can sneak up in other regions.

I have one that appears out of freaking nowhere on my neck. One day it’s not there, the next it’s gently blowing in the breeze. A male coworker once mistook it for string. Joke was on him, it was attached. And yes, he was a hottie because the laws of the universe say that if a male must point out something unflattering, embarrassing or gross about your appearance, he must be attractive so that you can be as mortified as humanly possible.

PSA: rearview mirrors in natural light are optimum for spotting rogue hairs, so tuck a pair of tweezers in your glove box. Obviously, hair reconnaissance missions should happen when the car is not moving. Safety first, ladies. And, plucking while stopped at a light is trashy. Just don’t.

And…I could continue with a detailed description of boob hair, but I’ll just leave it there and smile, imagining the panic that little teaser may cause.

Ever-present fear of sneeze-pee fusion.

If you’ve given birth, you might remember this one fondly. If you’ve never experienced pregnancy, you’re in for a treat, my sisters. Allow me to spell it out: a sneeze, cough or even a good laugh will make you pee your pants. You never know when your bladder will fail you. You’ll remember all the times you snickered at old ladies trying to discreetly toss Poise pads in their shopping cart. You’ll wonder if the sneeze-pee fusion is karmic ass-biting payback. The answer is yes.

Your high school anthem is a classic.

There is something depressing about hearing the tunes you took your bra off to in the backseat is now considered classic rock. I’m bracing myself for the day some punk-ass fourteen year old deejay refers to anything sung by Pat Benatar as an oldie. It’ll happen. And, part of me will die a little bit.

While I might need comfier underwear and more alone time with my tweezers, life at midlife is no pity party. I (usually) have enough energy to run after my kids, run a 5K and on a good day, run circles around my younger friends. Sometimes guys still check me out. They might be trying to decide if I need help crossing the street, but hey, let me have my fantasies, m’kay?

Most of my girlfriends in their forties and fifties list sexier sex and more wisdom as perks of being this age. I think it’s down to more confidence and just no longer giving a crap what other people think.

It will happen to you, too. Katy Perry or maybe even Justin Beiber will be on the classic rock station. You will pick up that multi-pack of cotton undies and say “hmmm, these look nice and comfy.” Wait and see. For now, better stock up on those Poise pads…and be careful when you sneeze. You just never know…

8 Facts That’ll Change How You View ‘How I Met Your Mother,’ According To Alyson Hannigan

For everyone who thinks they know everything about “How I Met Your Mother,” prepare to be lawyered.

Alyson Hannigan, otherwise known as Lily Aldrin, has been busy since the show ended a little more than a year ago. She’s had her hands full with being a mom, has a role in a new film called “Modern Love” and she’s even working with Ball Park’s Finest hot dogs, which she did admit, though she “usually” doesn’t try to brag, looked so good after she cooked them over a campfire that they wouldn’t even need a filter on Instagram.

During a short reprieve from her busy schedule, Hannigan took some time to chat with The Huffington Post about some behind-the-scenes stories from “HIMYM.” Prepare yourself: they might change the whole way you look at the show.

1. The cast talked about having an intervention for all of their puns.

Image: Netflix

When asked if the cast had any interventions that didn’t make the show, Hannigan said, “We talked about needing an intervention for ourselves to stop making so many puns. We would just pun for hours and hours and hours. It was great, but we were like, ‘We might have a problem,’ but we enjoyed it.”

The puns all started when a guest star mentioned the magazine Cat Fancy, Hannigan added: “We started having cat puns, and we had an afternoon of punning anything about cats. Fancy that!”

2. Alyson Hannigan’s real kid was fired from the show.



One of Hannigan’s kids was slated to play Lily and Marshall’s second child, but then she got some disappointing news. “They fired my kid from that role. She was gonna be the baby, but [producer] Carter Bays was like, ‘Nope. She’s too old,’ and she got replaced,” Hannigan said.

“I was like, ‘You fired my child. First of all that’s ageism. I don’t think you’re allowed to fire her because she’s too old,'” she joked.

3. The Cockamouse was real.

Image: PopSugar

The Cockamouse was the mysterious hybrid creature that Marshall and Lily found in their apartment, and though it seems like something someone made up, like the “South Park” monster ManBearPig, it turns out this was based on a real story.

“Yes, that is based on a story that happened to [producer] Kourtney Kang in New York in an apartment she lived in,” says Hannigan. She continued, “They were not sure if it was a cockroach or a mouse. And they’re pretty convinced it must’ve been both and it did fly away.”

To that, HuffPost responded, “Are you freaking kidding me?” Hannigan said, “I don’t think it flew out of the window, but it flew.”

4. The cast originally wanted Victoria to be the mom.

“Early on, I wanted Victoria to be the mom,” Hannigan said. “I guess Carter later said had we got canceled she would’ve been the mom. But, you know, somebody great would come on [the show] and we would be like, ‘Yeah, we want her to be the mom,’ so it was sort of just like whoever was on for a long period of time. We’re like, ‘Let her be the mom. Let her.’ We just loved everybody.”

5. Some of the cast knew early on that the mom would die.

Image: Giphy

Actor Josh Radnor was told about the major “HIMYM” finale twist during Season 1 of the show and Hannigan actually found out early as well. They had to film a lot of reactions for Ted Mosby’s kids early in the series that would then air in later seasons, the actress said, and after that some “whisperings” started getting out that the series would end with the mom’s death.

“I knew that was the case,” said Hannigan. “I didn’t know who the mom was going to be, but I did know that the reason he was telling all these stories is because she passed away, which was very sweet.”

6. Producers were worried Alyson Hannigan and Cristin Milioti looked too similar.
180792549

Hannigan says the whole process of finding the right actress to play the mom was “very secretive” and caused some suspicion around set when trailers that would “never be locked” suddenly were. Hannigan says she first met the mother, Cristin Milioti, in a makeup trailer because producers wanted to see how the pair looked side by side.

“They wanted to look at us next to each other to see if they were going change her hair or something because they were a little worried that we looked similar, so I had to go stand next to her and we had some people look at us together,” she said.

7. Alyson Hannigan was the reason Lily never had a musical number.

Image: Giphy

Each of the main cast members on “HIMYM” had a musical number except for Lily — and it turns out there was a good reason for that.

“I begged them not to make me,” said Hannigan. “Yeah, singing has never been something that I wanted to do publicly. It’s actually like a phobia. I know it sounds weird, but it has always been that way. And then I find myself in these shows that want to do musicals, and I’m like, ‘Noooooo!'”

Hannigan says she has gotten better when it comes to singing, but she’s “not gonna be dropping an album anytime soon.”

8. If it was up to Jason Segel, “HIMYM” would have a Hanukkah reunion show.

The actress told HuffPost she’d definitely be into a “HIMYM” reunion and that Jason Segel was actually coming up with some ideas during the finale.

“Jason was pitching some really funny specials, like a Hanukkah special and all these things with Carter. It was quite funny… Carter said we could do eight Hanukkah specials. One for each night. I’d be up for it,” she said.

In the words of Barney Stinson, that sounds pretty legen …

· 9 percent more likely to report the highest level of happiness
· 12 percent more likely to report being “extremely” or “very” confident
· More likely to live outside of a large city

Your Water Footprint: The Shocking Facts About How Much Water We Use to Make Everyday Products

Your Water Footprint: The Shocking Facts About How Much Water We Use to Make Everyday Products


The average American lifestyle is kept afloat by about 2,000 gallons of H2O a day. The numbers are shocking. Your Water Footprint reveals the true cost of our lifestyle. A water footprint is the amount of fresh water used to produce the goods and services we consume, including growing, harvesting, packaging, and shipping. From the foods we eat to the clothes we wear to the books we read and the music we listen to, all of it costs more than what we pay at the check-out. The 125 footprint facts in this book show the true cost of our lifestyle and what it is doing to Earth, including draining it dry. The Virtual Water Concept shows the amount of water used in human activities. Presented in clever, understandable graphics, Your Water Footprint raises readers'' awareness of how much water is used to make the things we use, consume and grow.
What we put on our dinner table has a very high cost. Nearly 95 percent of our water footprint is hidden in the food we eat: One pound of lettuce costs 15 gallons of freshwater; mango 190 gallons; avocado 220 gallons; tofu 244 gallons; rice 403 gallons; olives 522 gallons; pork 1,630 gallons; butter 2,044 gallons; chocolate 2,847 gallons; and beef 2,500 to 5,000 gallons. A slice of bread costs 10 gallons but if you eat it with a slice of cheese, it takes another 13 gallons. One glass of beer takes 20 gallons of water, and just one standard cup of tea costs 120 same-sized cups of water. A cotton t-shirt takes almost as much water as beef, a pair of jeans even more. In fact, all aspects of our daily lives require water in some way, shape or form. The saying that nothing is free applies more to water than anything else we consume,
considering just three percent of the world''s water is drinkable and that we are using more of it than ever before. Factor in climate change, population growth and pollution and we have an unsustainable situation. Many experts predict dire water shortages if we continue on our current path. Your Water Footprint is riveting. Consumers of all ages will be stunned by what it reveals. It is an excellent reference and an exciting way to introduce the resource-consumption equation to students.

15 Fascinating Facts That Power Shoppers Will Love About the World’s Largest H&M Store

HM-worlds-largest-store-nyc-Infograph

Power-shoppers have a new spot to add to the list of pilgramage sites: H&M has opened its largest outpost in the world in NYC’s Herald Square today. The 63,000-square-foot store has four stories and is one of the few in the U.S. to have a physical presence for its home line. But as far as numbers go, there’s so much more to know. As of today’s opening, you can count on:

—313,000 hangers
—236,500 shopping bags waiting at the registers (made of recycled material, natch)
—700 feet of retractable stanchions waiting to keep people in line*
—246 feet of rolling racks that will be used on a daily basis
—200 employees
—104 mannequins
—62 songs on the current store playlist
—35 feet of glass used for the mega-store’s front facade
—34 cash registers
—30 feet from floor to ceiling on the second floor atrium
—6 escalators
—4 floors
—2 elevators
—1 bed, on display in the home section
—countless mirrors (we were told there are so many mirrored surfaces at every turn that it’s impossible to point at a certain number)

*All that line-enforcing nylon will likely be needed when H&M’s next designer collaboration with Balmain hits.

The store isn’t the only recent big thing for the brand; it just announced it’s revamping its beauty section to include over 700 products and new lines (including eco and luxury offerings).

Your Water Footprint: The Shocking Facts About How Much Water We Use to Make Everyday Products

Your Water Footprint: The Shocking Facts About How Much Water We Use to Make Everyday Products


The average American lifestyle is kept afloat by about 2,000 gallons of H2O a day. The numbers are shocking. Your Water Footprint reveals the true cost of our lifestyle. A water footprint is the amount of fresh water used to produce the goods and services we consume, including growing, harvesting, packaging, and shipping. From the foods we eat to the clothes we wear to the books we read and the music we listen to, all of it costs more than what we pay at the check-out. The 125 footprint facts in this book show the true cost of our lifestyle and what it is doing to Earth, including draining it dry. The Virtual Water Concept shows the amount of water used in human activities. Presented in clever, understandable graphics, Your Water Footprint raises readers'' awareness of how much water is used to make the things we use, consume and grow.
What we put on our dinner table has a very high cost. Nearly 95 percent of our water footprint is hidden in the food we eat: One pound of lettuce costs 15 gallons of freshwater; mango 190 gallons; avocado 220 gallons; tofu 244 gallons; rice 403 gallons; olives 522 gallons; pork 1,630 gallons; butter 2,044 gallons; chocolate 2,847 gallons; and beef 2,500 to 5,000 gallons. A slice of bread costs 10 gallons but if you eat it with a slice of cheese, it takes another 13 gallons. One glass of beer takes 20 gallons of water, and just one standard cup of tea costs 120 same-sized cups of water. A cotton t-shirt takes almost as much water as beef, a pair of jeans even more. In fact, all aspects of our daily lives require water in some way, shape or form. The saying that nothing is free applies more to water than anything else we consume,
considering just three percent of the world''s water is drinkable and that we are using more of it than ever before. Factor in climate change, population growth and pollution and we have an unsustainable situation. Many experts predict dire water shortages if we continue on our current path. Your Water Footprint is riveting. Consumers of all ages will be stunned by what it reveals. It is an excellent reference and an exciting way to introduce the resource-consumption equation to students.

Golden Globes Facts: A Look Back At Hollywood’s Most Unpredictable Award Show

As we gear up for Sunday’s Golden Globes ceremony, which is guaranteed to provide more of the awards’ usual zaniness, let’s take a look back at some Globes trivia.

The Globes used to hand out two New Star of the Year accolades, one male and one female. They were discontinued in 1983. Winners included Robert Redford, Dustin Hoffman, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Mia Farrow, Diana Ross and Bette Midler.
bette midler golden globes

Unsurprisingly, Meryl Streep holds the record for the most nominations. She has 28 nods and eight wins, for “Kramer vs. Kramer,” “The French Lieutenant’s Woman,” “Sophie’s Choice,” “Adaptation.,” “Angels in America,” “The Devil Wears Prada,” “Julie & Julia” and “The Iron Lady.”
meryl streep golden globes 2003
(Streep and Nicole Kidman celebrate their 2003 wins for “Adaptation.” and “The Hours,” respectively. Streep co-starred in “The Hours” and was nominated opposite Kidman for Best Actress – Drama.)

For many years, the Globes had no host and awards were handed out by journalists in attendance. That changed in 1958 when the Rat Pack stormed the stage and took over unofficial hosting duties. Ricky Gervais was the show’s first hosts since John Larroquette and Janine Turner emceed in 1995.
ricky gervais golden globes

Four actors have gone home with two awards in the same year: Sigourney Weaver (1989, for “Gorillas in the Mist: The Story of Dian Fossey” and “Working Girl”), Joan Plowright (1993, for “Enchanted April” and “Stalin”), Helen Mirren (2007, for “The Queen” and “Elizabeth I”) and Kate Winslet (2010, for “Revolutionary Road” and “The Reader”). Julia-Louis Dreyfus, Chiwetel Ejiofor and Idris Elba are among the stars who have a chance to join that list this year.
kate winslet golden globes 2009

The Globes’ first trophy originated in 1945, one year after the inaugural awards. Members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association held a contest to design a statuette that would reflect their aim to honor the best in film. The group’s president, Marina Cisternas, crafted a golden globe with a filmstip wrapped around it and mounted on a pedestal.

(Lois Maxwell is seen with her 1948 trophy for New Actress of the Year, which she won for “That Hagen Girl.”)

Miss Golden Globe was instated in 1963. This year, Sosie Bacon (below) will take over the duties. Previous Miss Golden Globes who’ve gone on to see fame include Melanie Griffith, Laura Dern, Joely Fisher, Tara Reid and Freddie Prinze Jr., who is one of only a few Mr. Golden Globes.

The television prizes were added in 1956. Since then, only one other category — Best Animated Feature, which was introduced in 2007 — has joined the roster of awards. “Cars,” “Ratatouille,” “WALL-E,” “Up,” “Toy Story 3,” “The Adventures of Tintin” and “Brave” have since won.

(“Cars” director John Lasseter accepts in 2007.)

Robert Redford is this year’s nominee whose first win was the longest ago. (He took home 1966’s Most Promising Newcomer honor, for “Inside Daisy Clover.”)

Lupita Nyong’o’s (“12 Years a Slave”) and Barkhad Abdi’s (“Captain Phillips”) nominations are in honor of their first film roles ever.

The Cecil B. DeMille Award has been handed out 60 times. Only a dozen women have been the recipients. Judy Garland remains both the first female and youngest winner in the award’s history. The oldest was 90-year-old studio mogul Samuel Goldwyn. Only two African-Americans have won: Sidney Poitier and Morgan Freeman. This year’s honoree, the notoriously awards-adverse Woody Allen, has said he will not attend the ceremony. Diane Keaton will accept in his stead.
morgan freeman cecil b demille

Allen is taking a note out of Marlon Brando’s playbook. Brando refused the Golden Globe he won in 1973 for “The Godfather,” using it as opportunity to protest U.S. “imperialism and racism.”

Kerry Washington is the first black female to crack a leading-actress TV category (comedy or drama) since Regina Young was up for “I’ll Fly Away” in 1992.
kerry washington golden globes

Six of 2014’s TV actor nominees received film nods in previous years.: Kevin Spacey, Robin Wright, Don Cheadle, Michael J. Fox, Jon Voight, Janet McTeer. Julia-Louis Dreyfus joins that list thanks to her dual nominations this year, for HBO’s “Veep” and the movie “Enough Said.”
julia louisdreyfus golden globes

Critics were so shocked when “The Tourist” and “Burlesque” racked up multiple high-profile nominations in 2011 that reports accused Sony, the movies’ distributor, of bribing HFPA voters with an all-expenses-paid trip to Las Vegas and a meet-and-greet with Cher.
johnny depp golden globes

The Globes’ reputation for filling nomination slots with critically panned movies didn’t begin with “The Tourist” and “Burlesque.” The most infamous example came in 1982 when Pia Zadora, star of the lambasted movie “Butterfly,” took home New Star of the Year the same year she garnered Worst Actress and Worst New Star at the Golden Raspberry Awards. Reports then surfaced that Zadora’s husband, Israeli multimillionaire Meshulam Riklis, had flown HFPA members to Vegas — sound familiar? — to watch Zadora perform.
pia zadora 1983

Other surprising nods in recent years include Kevin Spacey for “Casino Jack,” Sarah Jessica Parker for “The Family Stone,” “Patch Adams” for Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy and Jim Carrey for “Liar Liar.”

If either “American Hustle” or “12 Years a Slave” — this year’s most-nominated movies — sweeps up all of its categories, it would be the first movie to do so since 1975’s “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest.”
american hustle amy adams image

Christine Lahti had to be summoned out of the bathroom when she won in 1998 for Best Actress in a Television Series – Drama.

“Nashville” (1975) is the most-nominated movie in Globes history, with nine nods. (It only took home one trophy, for Best Original Song.) “Cabaret,” “Bugsy” and “Titanic” each received eight nominations.
