Celebrate Hot Breakfast Month with these 20 slow-cooker recipes

We’ll admit it: a bowl of cereal or a granola bar is our default breakfast when time is short or laziness levels are high... and sometimes the default becomes the norm. I mean, who wants to put together a whole hot breakfast and then go to work for eight hours?

Who are the Oscar nominees outside of their nominated character?

The problem with an Oscar-caliber role is that for the rest of your career, people tend to think of you only as that character; not as a human person who laughs at how poorly they play boardgames like Catchphrase, possessing good dance moves and a surprisingly solid basketball shot. While we never truly get to see behind a performer's mask, it's fun when we get to catch glimpses...

Why Jimmy Kimmel isn't the perfect Oscars host for 2018 in Hollywood

When the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced last May that Jimmy Kimmel would return to host the 2018 Oscars, the entertainment world was not, as it is now, on fire.
