Sly’s kids join A-list offspring from Laura Dern to Dakota Johnson as alums dish on the gig their parents love: “He was so honored,” says Gia Mantegna of father Joe’s reaction to her selection in 2011. “It was the fact that your parents had a career in Hollywood that was respected.”

Scarlet, Sistine and Sophia Stallone were lounging in the living room of their family’s Beverly Hills estate when their father — that would be Sylvester — announced that he’d just been on the phone with Lorenzo Soria, president of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. The trio, ages 14, 18 and 20 (more about them here), had been chosen to share the honor of being 2017’s Miss Golden Globe.
“We all started screaming and jumping up and down, music blasting, dogs barking,” recalls eldest sib Sophia. “We didn’t think we would get it.” Perhaps they did not, but just about anyone else could have scanned the checklist — stunning, personable, fruit of the loins of a genuine Hollywood legend (and 2016 Golden Globe winner for Creed) — and seen the Stallone girls as shoo-ins.

“You get your start in comedy by looking in the mirror and thinking what you see is unusual,” says Bruce Vilanch. “So you start making funny faces and perform for yourself.”

Sixty-six years — and six Emmys — after first catching a glimpse of himself in the mirror, Vilanch is still screwing up his face and cracking wise. His signature heft, charmingly raspy voice, and unstoppable wit marked him for a career in comedy from the get go. It helped that he had a “deep-seated need to express [myself],” Vilanch says. “Also, to be funny.” Read More

Who To Blame If Anne and James Aren’t Funny At Tonight’s Oscars
Feb 27, 2011


And we know who you’re thinking of. But it’s not Ricky Gervais.

Bruce Vilanch is the portly jokesmith who usually hangs behind the scenes – though NewsFeed does fondly remember his laugh-out-loud Hollywood Squares run. Vilanch is the man who crafts the funnies that emerge from the celebs’ mouths. And this year marks the 22nd Oscars he’s helped write.

Though this year’s hosts were a curveball for Vilanch and his writing team. Anne Hathaway and James Franco are, first and foremost, actors. Each has done a comedic stint on SNL, and NewsFeed would consider both quite funny indeed. But for those behind the scenes, it’s a departure from past years, when Vilanch and Co. have curated jokes for David Letterman, Chris Rock, and Jon Stewart, to name a few – all of whom are strong stand-up comedians.
