Sharon Osbourne leaving ‘America’s Got Talent’ because of son’s firing from NBC

HollywoodNews.com: It came as a surprise to many when Sharon Osbourne abruptly announced that she would be leaving her judging role on ‘America’s Got Talent,’ but it seems the decision was easy for her.
Sharon recently announced that she decided to quit after NBC fired her son, Jack Osbourne, from a project after he was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, states RadarOnline. “I just can’t be fake … it’s discrimination, and it was badly handled … it’s time to move on,” Sharon commented.
However, NBC producer David Hurwitz claims there was never a done deal with Jack to appear on ‘Stars Earn Stripes’: “He was somebody we were in talks with.”
NBC also issued a statement about the whole situation: “Sharon has been a valuable part of the NBC family. We regret any misunderstanding and wish Jack well.”

Ryan Seacrest defends slams against him being at Olympics

HollywoodNews.com: When Ryan Seacrest popped up on TV doing coverage of this year’s Olympics, fans of the event were not pleased to see him covering these major sporting events.
However, the ‘American Idol’ and ‘E! News’ host is defending his work with NBC and the Olympics, states RadarOnline. “As I’ve learned from all my years in television, you can’t please everyone. I believe the huge ratings NBC has drawn for the Olympics speak for themselves,” Seacrest commented.
And Seacrest doesn’t think interviewing these athletes is all that different than his specialty of interviewing celebrities: “Olympic athletes are celebrities too, so there are similarities, though athletes are typically a lot taller.”
He also slammed criticism that he wasn’t prepared to do the interviews since it isn’t his normal gig as he reports that he has been prepping for some time now like he would for any job.
What do you think about his job so far?

Tony Awards on CBS tonight… and the winners are…

HollywoodNews.com: Tonight’s Tony Awards on CBS may turn out to be a big ratings winner. For once, the Tonys have clear sailing all night with very little real competition on the regular broadcast networks. Almost everything else on the tube tonight is a repeat–from “American’s Got Talent” to “The Simpsons.”
Everything on Fox is a repeat. ABC has two first run reality shows–”Secret Millionaire” and “Exteme Makeover.” NBC has just “Dateline” that’s new and then the “Talent” repeat. The only real competition, off network, on cable, will be “True Blood” on HBO and “Mad Men” on AMC. So it’s up to Neil Patrick Harris and the Tony producers–the ball is in their court. They’ll have a slew of stars presenting and performing, and hopefully enough to keep viewers who dip in to see “Once” go up against “Newsies” for Best Musical among the many unknowns of the night. Some of the stars expected include Jessica Chastain, Hugh Jackman, Nick Jonas, Amanda Seyfried, Jim Parsons, Paul Rudd, Ellen Barkin, Angela Lansbury, Candice Bergen, Christopher Plummer, James Marsden, Mandy Patinkin and Sheryl Crow. Bernadette Peters should be there, too, although last night she failed to show up for her Lifetime Achievement Award at the pre-Tony cocktail party.

Golden Globes loses lawsuit against Dick Clark Productions

HollywoodNews.com: The Hollywood Foreign Press has lost its lawsuit against Dick Clark Productions. The HFPA–paid over $6 million a year to license its name by NBC–had contended that Dick Clark had no right to negotiate with NBC without them. Today senior US District Judge A. Howard Matz ruled that he disagreed with them. The ruling follows. This is a blow to the HFPA, a greedy group that has suffered numerous scandals over the years. The ruling means The Golden Globes are now in the backseat. Dick Clark Productions can produce the show through 2018, and continue to make deals with NBC as long as the network wants the show. The HFPA will have to accept their deals.
In the end, it was just a story of greed. The HFPA consists of about 80 people, many of whom have no credentials and don’t see all the movies every year. In past decades, they were broadcast on cable, then moved to CBS. CBS kicked them off the air during a scandal involving “actress” Pia Zadora, and NBC picked them up. I’ve written over the years about the group’s many crazy stunts, their domineering attitude, and the questionable credits of certain of their members. In the meantime, they’ve used the annual fee they receive from NBC to bankroll their arrogance. The movies they’re supposed to see, and the choices they make, are no different in the end than dozens of other critics’ groups. There’s nothing special about the HFPA. But they’ve managed to turn it into a tax free business.
