Morgan Freeman at SAG Awards Calls Out Front Row Chatterbox In Lifetime Achievement Speech

1/21/2018 6:42 PM PST

Morgan Freeman awkwardly called someone out during his Lifetime Achievement award speech at the SAG Awards Sunday ... but the person's identity remains a mystery. 

Freeman was just about to launch into his acceptance speech when he stopped and zeroed in on someone in the front row, who appeared to be talking and distracting him.

The legendary actor didn't let it go -- if anything, he dragged it out by saying ... "Hey ... I'm talking to you. Yeah, hey." He finally finished with ... "Okay, well you just stand out to me. That's all" before continuing with the rest of his speech.

We're digging to identify the culprit, but lesson learned to whomever that was ... don't interrupt Morgan Freeman!!

'The Dark Tower' Young Star Will Make Big Bucks IF He's in Sequels

1/22/2018 12:30 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Tom Taylor -- the young actor who plays Jake in "The Dark Tower" -- got a nice payday for his work in the film, but the big bucks are (hopefully) yet to come ... TMZ has learned.

According to the 16-year-old's contract ... Tom banked $125k for his role in the movie alongside Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey -- which is nice -- but will make double if he makes it into a sequel ... and $500k if there's a third installment. He'll also haul in $30k per episode if he lands the Jake role in a TV adaptation of Stephen King's story.

Here's the problem -- the movie massively disappointed critics after its summer release and reportedly barely broke even at the box office, taking in $111 million worldwide.

Since then, talk of a sequel's been muted, and even King has expressed concern about a TV project ... saying it would probably need to be a complete reboot.

Guess that's just show business, kid.

Yung Berg Wanted Man Again!! ... For Missing Court Date

1/22/2018 12:25 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Yung Berg apparently loves to learn the hard way -- not showing up to court is asking for trouble.

The 'Love & Hip Hop' star is a wanted man in Miami after missing ANOTHER court date following a weed bust. TMZ broke the story ... cops were called following an altercation in his hotel room back in October and they found 2 blunts on him. Normally, not a big deal but Berg had a 9-year-old warrant, so they arrested his ass.

He was later released, but was supposed to appear in court for his arraignment in the weed case on January 11 but -- you know how Berg's favorite game goes -- he never showed.

It's called Google Calendar, Berg.

SAG Awards 2018 1st Ever Host, Lots O' Color & Franco ... Go Behind the Scenes

1/21/2018 7:04 PM PST

The 24th annual SAG Awards was a mixed bag -- with the Time's Up movement as a backdrop ... there were some things (and people) we didn't expect to see. 

For starters ... Kristen Bell served as the award show's first-ever host -- and she kicked off an all-female ensemble of presenters for the night ... most of whom spoke out in support of Time's Up.

James Franco was also in attendance, despite recently being accused of sexual misconduct. Aziz Ansari, on the other hand, skipped the show amid his own allegations.

Morgan Freeman called out a would-be talker during his Lifetime Achievement award speech ... and women appeared to abandon the wardrobe blackout they adopted at the Globes.

Like we said ... tons of surprises. Go behind the scenes to check out the rest. 

Aziz Ansari Bails on SAG Awards 2018 ... Despite Best Actor Nom

1/21/2018 5:36 PM PST

Aziz Ansari bailed on the Screen Actors Guild Awards Sunday amid an allegation of sexual misconduct ... this despite the fact he was nominated and the tide of public opinion seemed to be swinging his way.

Aziz was nominated for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Comedy Series along with Larry David, Anthony Anderson, Sean Hayes, Marc Maron and William H. Macy. Aziz was not in the crowd as the camera panned to the nominees. Macy won the award.

As we reported ... Aziz was accused of sexual assault by an anonymous woman who said he pressured her into sex acts during a date last year.

His case has been interesting -- lots of women have come out against his accuser and the publication that first reported the accusation, including HLN's host Ashleigh Banfield.

Looks like the situation was just too much for Aziz. The same can't be said for James Franco -- who's also been accused of sexual misconduct ... he's there tonight.

Alison Brie Defends Bro-in-Law James Franco ... At SAG Awards 2018

1/21/2018 4:35 PM PST

James Franco has his sister-in-law squarely in his corner at the SAG Awards ... 'cause she just defended him amid allegations of sexual misconduct.

Alison Brie -- who's married to James' younger brother, Dave Franco -- was talking to Giuliana Rancic Sunday at the Shrine Auditorium when she was asked about Time's Up and the accusations against her brother-in-law. 

She had a diplomatic response at first, saying the Francos supported anyone who felt victimized coming forward and speaking -- but then made it clear ... she supports her family, adding that not all of the info being reported about James was accurate. 

As we reported ... Franco stands accused of sexual misconduct by at least 5 women. He's denied the allegations against him, and has since avoided most public events.

SAG Awards 2018 Ladies Ditch the Black Outfits ... Still Boast 'Time's Up'

1/21/2018 3:19 PM PST

Early arrivals for the 24th annual SAG Awards were quite telling ... 'cause a lot of the women appear to have abandoned the blackout for "Time's Up."

It was obvious Sunday as celebs made their way to the Shrine Auditorium that many of the ladies decided against wearing black in support of the movement -- unlike the Golden Globes a few weeks ago, when the blackout was practically unanimous.

Some of the stars who avoided black wardrobe so far include Alison Brie, Erin Lim, Renee Bargh, Giuliana Rancic, Lilliana Vazquez, and Keltie Knight

What's interesting ... a lot of red carpet personalities are talking "Time's Up" and speculating it'll be a major conversation piece throughout the night. 

No major speeches on the subject just yet ... but it's probably only a matter of time. 

Bill Cosby Fans Out in Philly Goes Public On a Wing And a Prayer

1/21/2018 1:33 PM PST

Bill Cosby must really like the Eagles' chances against the Vikings, 'cause he mustered up enough courage to show his face in public rockin' their gear.

The disgraced comedian resurfaced Sunday in Philly wearing an Eagles windbreaker and hat as he stopped off at a coffee shop ahead of the team's NFC Championship game.

We haven't seen much of him since his mistrial last summer, when the jury couldn't reach a verdict on charges of sexual assault. His retrial begins in April.

Prosecutors in the Cosby case asked a judge last week to allow 19 additional women to testify against him, in the hopes of establishing a pattern of sexual assault. The judge, Steven T. O'Neill, has yet to rule on the request.

Looks like Cosby's liking his chances, too, at this point ... we're sensing no shame here.

Dolores O'Riordan Mourned by Hundreds In Open Coffin Public Reposal

1/21/2018 12:46 PM PST

Dolores O'Riordan was mourned by hundreds this weekend in her native Ireland during an open coffin public reposal -- where bystanders said goodbye to the Cranberries singer.

Dolores' body was on display Sunday at St. Joseph's Church, where mourners flocked to pay their respects to the Irish rock star. The casket remained open, and some fans reportedly said she looked "at peace" ... according to the Irish Times

Her mother and six siblings were in attendance, and her Cranberries bandmates left a floral tribute beside her coffin which read ... "The song has ended, but the memories linger on."

As we reported ... Dolores died this past week while recording in London. Her rep said she died "suddenly" and cops are treating the death as "unexplained" for now ... no further details have been released. Friends of hers told us she'd been "dreadfully depressed" as of late, and was also suffering from back pain.

Dolores will be laid to rest next to her father Tuesday at Caherelly Cemetery in County Limerick, Ireland. 

RIP

Cristiano Ronaldo No, Not the Face ... Not the Face!!!!

1/21/2018 12:13 PM PST

Cristiano Ronaldo faced off with a cleat and won a goal, but lost some skin in the process -- which seemed to piss him off after a quick mirror check on the nearest phone possible.

The Real Madrid striker suffered a nasty injury Sunday in the final few minutes of his team's match against Deportivo -- going in for a header, scoring ... but walking away with a bloody face from a cut near his eye.

As he left the pitch, Ronaldo used a team medic's phone to check out the damage to his second crown jewel (feet first, of course) -- and couldn't help but look annoyed AF. 

He certainly paid the price for Real Madrid's 6-1 lead in the 84th minute. But hey, the goal itself looked pretty sick from our POV ... for whatever that's worth.

Halsey has a message for Donald Trump ... "Watch my F***ing speech!"

The singer delivered a rousing, emotional, profound poem Saturday at the Women's March in New York City ... a very personal speech about sexual assault.  We got her at LAX Saturday night and she was more than satisfied with the poem and the reaction.
