Kevin Spacey Competes With Gordon Ramsay At Cursing, And Surprisingly Wins

British chef Gordon Ramsay isn’t known to mince his words.

But even he seemed slightly shocked by “House of Cards” star Kevin Spacey’s liberal use of curse words in a promo clip for his new show.

In a video that’s fast going viral, Spacey begins by talking about his upcoming one-man play “Clarence Darrow.” But the interview soon descends into an amusing swearing contest, with Spacey eventually gaining the upper hand.

“Damn, I’ve been out fucked,” jokes Ramsay at the end.

Check out the clip above, and see the full interview when “The F Word” premieres on Fox on May 31.

Damien Chazelle Wins DGA Award for La La Land

This article originally appeared on Entertainment Weekly.

La La Land continued its charmed run through awards season, this time at the Directors Guild of America Awards. There, Damien Chazelle claimed the top prize, winning Outstanding Directorial Achievement in Feature Film for the modern-day musical about two aspiring artists falling in love.

The recognition comes hot off of star Emma Stone picking up the SAG Award for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Leading Role and the film’s top honors at the PGA Awards and record-breaking seven Golden Globe wins, among other awards season accolades. Not to mention, La La Land also received a record-tying 14 Oscar nominations and impressive 11 BAFTA Award nominations.

“This was a movie that was truly a team effort,” Chazelle said while accepting the DGA award, before thanking his cast, crew, and others. “I want to thank my fellow nominees and thank all the filmmakers who are in for being the reason I’m here today, for inspiring me since I can remember.” Garth Davis (Lion), Barry Jenkins (Moonlight), Kenneth Lonergan (Manchester by the Sea), and Denis Villeneuve (Arrival) were also nominated in the feature film category. All but Davis are nominated in the Oscars’ Best Director category.

Nine of the last 10 DGA Award winners have gone on to take home an Academy Award for their work, with the lone exception being Ben Affleck for Argo. (Affleck was famously snubbed in the Best Director category that year.)

Love Wins In Singer Dyllan Murray’s Heartfelt New Music Video

Singer Dyllan Murray wants his new video, “No Wrong Way,” to offer some comfort to members of the LGBTQ community who are concerned about their future under President Donald Trump

Directed by Guy Shalem, “No Wrong Way” explores both a mixed race, young gay couple’s relationship, as well as a budding romance between a transgender girl and a cisgender boy. Both couples appear to navigate some rough waters early on, but fortunately, love wins by the conclusion of the video, which can be viewed above. 

In 2015, Murray, 18, teamed up with Meghan Trainor and producer Jason “Poo Bear” Boyd with the idea of creating a musical “Christmas gift” to his gay dads. During the collaboration, he decided that the inclusive message of “No Wrong Way,” which features vocals by Kira Kosarin, should resound beyond his own experiences. 

“I never really thought about having a social rights song ― I never saw myself ever doing anything like that,” Murray told The Huffington Post. Still, he added, “I was always bullied because [having two dads] was not the ‘normal’ of everyone else. It made me different.” 

Working with Trainor, who has been an outspoken advocate for the LGBTQ community in her own right, inspired Murray to channel his own feelings about queer issues into his music. “It was great to have her in the studio and collaborate, because [equality] is something that she really supports as well,” he said.

Citing Justin Timberlake, Maroon 5 and Justin Bieber as influences, the Los Angeles-based singer now “wants to start speaking out, and helping other people talk about themselves in general and be open with others.” To start, he’s decided to donate proceeds from the sales of “No Wrong Way” to GLAAD and The Trevor Project, an LGBTQ youth advocacy organization. 

“It’s a scary time right now, and people are really worried about what’s going to happen next. There should be some sort of comfort,” he said. “People should still be able to open and not afraid to show who they really are.” 

As painful as the next four years may be for the LGBTQ community, America’s young, up-and-coming artists certainly know what’s good.

Federico Marchetti Wins Entrepreneur of the Year Award in Italy

MILAN – Federico Marchetti, chief executive officer of Yoox Net-a-porter Group, is the winner of the annual Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award.
The award, which Marchetti received on Thursday evening at the Italian Stock Exchange, recognizes his “original intuition” about the future possibilities of the Web and his creation of Italy’s biggest tech firm, with a market capitalization of more than 3 billion euros, or $ 3.18 billion, at current exchange.
“Anything is possible,” said Marchetti. “I started from scratch and as an outsider in 1999, so I would like to dedicate this award to the younger generation. Italy is a country of innovators and talents, which has given us a great competitive advantage. It’s not a question of capitals, but rather of execution. People are more important than capitals, they are the ones that turn ideas into reality,” said the entrepreneur, who also credited his team for growing the group.
Marchetti spearheaded the merger between Yoox and Net-a-porter in 2015, listing it on the Italian Bourse as YNAP. As reported, a strong performance in all channels and global markets helped YNAP close the first nine months of the year with sales of 1.33 billion million euros, or $ 1.47 billion, up 12.8 percent compared with pro-forma revenues of 1.18

Love Wins For You And Me

The United State Supreme Court ruled today for same sex marriage to be legal nationwide, and as I read the various articles telling this wonderful truth, I told my son to come into the living room. The sun was shining through our window and his gray eyes glistened and grew bigger as I sat him down and told him that I had something very important to tell him. As he stared at me, wondering what was going on, I told him that, as an almost-6-year old, he would remember today. Today is the day that history was made in the United States. I explained to him that now, men could marry men and women could marry women. His response was telling and simple: “That’s great, Mama. People who love one another can now spend their lives together.” He summed it up perfectly and went back to play. It IS great. People can spend their lives together. It’s that simple truth, echoed in his response to me. Love really did win today. It won for us all.

I was allowed to marry because I’m a woman and I married a man. My husband and I celebrated our 13 year wedding anniversary this week, and with every year that passed, I often thought about the many people who wanted to marry but could not. When we were out to dinner, my husband reached for my hand — my hand with my wedding rings and his hand with his tattooed band crossed across the table and we sat and connected, celebrating our marriage. This sanctity of marriage, this connection despite the difficulties, is what has sustained me and our lives together. We reminisced about our past, talked about the kids, and dreamed about our future. But this hand holding really sat with me all week — this connection and our commitment to one another, symbolized by our wedding bands crossing together.

When he reached for my hand that night, I flashed back over the past 20 years in that one gesture. As we drove back home with the top down, the wind blowing in my hair and the setting sun’s rays hitting my back, I remembered our past — the 13 years married and the seven years before that. I remembered how I left my high school prom with a wild, blonde-haired boy driving his cousin’s Mustang convertible and how that started a 20 year love affair. How we named our daughter on a dark country road, driving with the windows down, 18 years before she was even born. How he traveled the world and so did I, but how we ended up back together, somehow. How I walked down a long pier to a submarine hatch to deliver him dinner pre-9/11. How we finally were married (after what seemed like an eternity but wasn’t) and how amazing it felt to be connected to someone in that way.

All of that has turned into a legacy that we have created, together. We traveled together, married. We moved together, married. We built a life together, married. We have had two beautiful children together, married. My marriage is a gift and sometimes, it is work, hard work. But all the best things are. Marriage isn’t always perfect and it certainly isn’t a decision everyone should make or that everyone even wants to make. It’s a choice, and one that I’m so happy everyone is now free to make. Love wins today for all.

Star Wars Tech vs. Star Trek Tech: Who Wins?

Which is the more technologically advanced civilization–the Federation of Star Trek or the Galactic Republic of Star Wars?: originally appeared on Quora: The best answer to any question. Ask a question, get a great answer. Learn from experts and access insider knowledge. You can follow Quora on Twitter, Facebook, and Google+.

2015-06-10-1433966292-6075391-1.jpg

Answer by Todd Gardiner

Let’s compare the two, side-by-side.

Transportation

We have hyper engines that go through hyperspace compared to warp drives that travel through normal space at FTL speeds. Technical data books indicate that the speeds and range of hyper drives are greater, however.

We have also repulsor craft that hover over the ground in the Empire, but not much is shown of Federation ground transport, although anti-grav units are used to move heavy objects. But the Federation has one edge: teleportation.

I’m going to consider them even here, based on having different advantages.

Energy Generation

Both empires seem to be able to produce unlimited power for their needs. The amount directed to any one use might be limited, but fuel seems to be endless. While the exact fuel for the Empire is unclear, it seems to be on-par with the Federation’s antimatter engines (although often at much larger scales, e.g. The Death Star). Another tie.

Communication

Both spacefaring civilizations have FTL communication that is not instantaneous at long distances. There are language translators that work in real time in the Federation, but these might just be for explorers. Citizens of the Empire seem to prefer being polyglot, but protocol droids are available for translation. Slight edge to the Federation here. (+1/2)

Manufacturing

The Federation is able to use replicators to nearly instantly produce food, durable goods and tools. Apparently it cannot produce all elements and molecules, perhaps needed a “base supply” of matter to convert into finished items, rather than just converting energy into matter directly. But holodecks have shown that it can instantly produce and break down the matter it works with.

The Empire, especially on the frontier, depends on trade. The movement of rare resources and finished goods is the center of their economy, indicating that they have no similar manufacturing capability. Plus one for the Federation.

Construction

Both civilizations build large spaceships in orbit. While the Federation can produce starbases which are large cities, the Empire makes Star Destroyers and was able to produce two Death Stars (one in secret). It seems that Empire construction methods are superior. Plus one for the Empire.

Military

Ground troops for both civilizations make use of hand-held energy weapons, some of which are powerful enough to vaporize their target, although the later are not commonly used (too few shots?) Neither seem to use personal energy shields.

Vehicles similarly use weapons the scale-up with the size of the vehicle, although vehicles are large enough that they can supply the energy needed to maintain shields that defend against energy weapons. The extremely large size of Empire ships mean large shields, thus fighters are more heavily used to penetrate the shields physically and then deliver weapons attacks. But the two seem to be on-par technologically here and I don’t see one side having an advantage over the other, should they fight each other with the same mass of ships or number of ground troops with air support.

Medical Technology

Severe injuries that do not result in brain death seem to be reparable. For some reason the Federation seems to be plagued with hundreds of rare and hard to identify diseases on its border (more often across it, perhaps). But they are able to treat them with a minimum of fatalities.

The Empire has a greater use of cybernetics (Repli-Limb Prosthetic Replacements), although it is unclear if this is cultural or if they lack some sort of limb regeneration technology that the Federation might be using off camera. On the other hand, Gordi did have cybernetic sight…

Both are also known to use cloning technology (in secret) and to genetically modify members for specialty purposes (again, rarely).

Lack of firm details here results in another tie.

Robotics and Computing

The Empire has a love of creating seemingly sentient robots to function as servants. The Federation has produced many robots, but does not tend to use them alongside human crews. Use in construction and other off-camera activities seems to be the primary use.

But then, the two sentient robots (Data and Lore) are afforded full human rights (and criminal responsibility for their actions), possibly unlike in the Empire. Certainly the difficulty in production is not rewarded by an economic return of gaining a specialized servant.

The Federation does seem to prefer using semi-sentient computers for their starships, however. There is no sign that The Empire does this with their ships. In fact, you often need a droid to interface with the ship computer.

In the end, a small advantage to the Empire (+1/2)

[Update: the new Star Trek movie has an apparently robotic crewman on the bridge of the Enterprise. Perhaps they are ret-conning to incorporate “droids”.]

Field Manipulation

Both empires have mastered the control of projected fields, artificial gravity, ship integrity fields and so on. Shield generators are standard gear for starships and can be placed in ground installations. Some cloaking technology exists for both, as does projecting holograms.

Another tie.

“Social” Technology

Although this is not being considered here, I would like to point out that the smaller Federation has made use of social institutions which are more “advanced” than the Empire. The Federation is a non-discriminating, post-scarcity economy which no longer uses money and is interested in the betterment of all of its citizens equally. The Empire exists as a feudal state (or Republic, before and after the rise of the Empire) with slavery common, an unequal sharing of resources, and a culture that accepts bounty hunters and smugglers, at least on the fringes of civilization.

Final Result: A tie.

The Federation has transporters, personal translators, holodecks and replicators.

The Empire has droids, faster/further warp drive travel, massive construction projects, energy generation that scales linearly with its construction projects, and cybernetics.

Also keep in mind that the Empire is much, much larger. It spans the entire galaxy. There are civilizations in the Federation’s galaxy whose technology dwarfs both the Federation and the Empire.

Humble Plumber Wins $136 Million Lottery, Still Wants To Continue Working

NEW YORK (AP) — A Staten Island plumber who won a $ 136 million Powerball jackpot said Thursday he wants to keep working — but also plans to “relax a little more.”

Anthony Perosi, 56, left his March 14 ticket pinned to the wall behind a basement pipe for six weeks.

The winner, Anthony Perosi, on right, and his son, Anthony Perosi III.

A friend had told him where the winning ticket had been purchased, but she thought a teacher had won. So he took his time checking the numbers, which he’d chosen randomly.

“When I saw all the numbers matched up, I panicked,” Perosi said. “I immediately called my son and asked him to come over right away!”

Anthony Perosi III did what he was told.

“I couldn’t believe what I was seeing,” said the 27-year-old. “I checked the numbers on my phone and it has been surreal ever since.”

The cash value of the ticket came to $ 88.5 million. The father decided to share his winnings with his son, split 70-30. So dad gets a net lump sum of $ 38.6 million after required withholdings, and son pockets $ 16.5 million.

“I honestly don’t know what my plans are right now,” said the elder Perosi. “I want to continue to work, but will be able to relax a little more and not have any worries financially.”

“I don’t have words for it,” said the son. “It’s just unbelievable and a big relief; like a big weight is off my shoulders. I’ll probably pay some bills, take a vacation, and then really take some time to think and plan for the future.”

Sweden Wins 2015 Eurovision Song Contest

VIENNA (AP) — Sweden won the 60th Eurovision Song Contest on Saturday, finishing ahead of Russia, whose contestant received some boos as the Ukraine conflict spilled over into the continent’s largest songfest.

Italy came in third. Australia, which was given a wild-card entry for this year due to its enthusiastic fan base and took part for the first time, was a dark horse, with many hoping candidate Guy Sebastian would triumph and secure a place for the country next year.

His failure to do so, placing fifth, means Australia will probably not be back next year.

The race between Russia and Sweden went back and forth for most of the evening as jurors from 40 countries cast their ballots, along a worldwide audience voting by phone and app.

The win by Mans Zelmerlow and his song “Heroes” marks a record seventh time that Sweden has taken top honors in the contest.

His win comes 41 years after that of Swedish group Abba, whose triumph in 1974 with “Waterloo” launched their world career.

About 200 million people watched on TV Saturday as the 27 finalists battled it out musically. Approximately 10,000 people followed the contest live in Vienna’s mammoth Stadthalle.

Last year’s win by bearded cross-dresser Conchita Wurst vaulted the contest into even greater worldwide popularity.

Wurst, who co-hosted the show, was critical of the scattered boos that met Russian contestant Polina Gagarina and her pacifist-themed song “A Million Voices,” calling the reaction “incomprehensible.”

‘The Bachelorette’ Season 11 Episode 2 Recap: Kaitlyn Bristowe Wins — And Gives Roses To A Few Losers

It’s 2015. By now, reality TV is a young adult, but it hasn’t grown out of “The Bachelor” franchise. Despite its bizarre dating rituals, low success rate, and questionable racial and gender politics, the stable of shows is, if anything, more popular than ever. Do people love “The Bachelor” and “The Bachelorette,” or do they love to hate it? It’s unclear. But here at Here To Make Friends, we both love and love to hate them — and we love to snarkily dissect each episode in vivid detail.

In this week’s second Here To Make Friends podcast (it is a two-part premiere … thanks, ABC), hosts Claire Fallon, HuffPost culture writer, and Emma Gray, senior editor of HuffPost Women, recap the May 19 episode of “The Bachelorette,” Season 11. We’ll break down the conclusion of the two-Bachelorette thing, Kaitlyn’s taste in men and the slut-shamey, sex talk season highlights. (Also… the return of Nick Viall?!)

You can check out our past and future episodes of Here To Make Friends and other HuffPost Podcasts on The Huffington Post’s Sound Cloud page. Thanks to our producer, Katelyn Bogucki and our editor Jorge Corona.

Azealia Banks Calls BET Awards ‘Bogus,’ Says Nicki Minaj Wins ‘Every Year’

Azealia Banks is never one to hide her feelings, and it’s safe to say she’s really not feeling her BET Award nomination for Best Female Hip-Hop Artist.

Iggy Azalea, Nicki Minaj, Trina, Tink and Dej Loaf are up for the honor along with Banks, who took to Twitter on Monday to express her thoughts on the “bogus” award show:

Minaj certainly has been a favorite at the BET Awards and has taken home the Best Female Hip-Hop Artist for the last five consecutive years. She has yet to respond to Banks’ comments, but she’s likely basking in the afterglow of dropping the video for “Feeling Myself” with Beyonce.

Besides, Banks claims her comments weren’t supposed to be taken as jabs at Minaj anyway:

A Taekwondo Match Unexpectedly Turns Into a Dance Battle; Everyone Wins The Round

A Taekwondo match can sometimes look like a beautiful, choreographed fight, almost like a dance. But sometimes, it can be an actual choreographed dance.

Watch the fighters above get down to the “We No Speak Americano” song as they put the combat aside, and battle with their dance moves instead.

Kevin Bacon would be proud.

Though the video made rounds on the Internet in 2013, we are thankful America’s Funniest Home Videos reposted the clip this week to remind us that combining dancing and fighting never gets old.
