RCA NashvilleWe already knew that Maren Morris, Little Big Town, and Kacey Musgraves would be performing on Sunday’s Grammys, but now we have a better idea of what exactly they’ll be doing: Maren, LBT and Kacey will all take part in a tribute to Dolly Parton, who’s being honored as this year’s MusiCares Person of the Year.

Katy Perry — who previously sang with Dolly on the 2016 Academy of Country Music Awards — will do one of the icon’s classic hits as well.

Dolly herself will also perform a new song from her latest album: the soundtrack for the Netflix movie Dumplin’.

You can tune in for the 61st Annual Grammy Awards Sunday at 8 p.m. ET on CBS. Dan + Shay and Kacey will have their own performance slots on the show as well.

Watch what happens at diaper time: Andy Cohen welcomes baby boy via surrogate

Bravo/Charles Sykes(NEW YORK) — The host of Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live, Andy Cohen, announced Monday night via Instagram that he welcomed a son named Benjamin, via a surrogate.

“He is named after my grandfather, Ben Allen,” Cohen posted of the nine-pound, two-ounce bundle of joy. “I’m in love. And speechless. And eternally grateful to an incredible surrogate. And I’m a dad. Wow.”

Cohen announced that he was expecting his first child in December, and revealed the child’s gender on New Year’s Eve, when he was hosting CNN’s New Year’s Eve coverage opposite Anderson Cooper.

His baby shower last month was a who’s who of Bravo’s The Real Housewives series, but Sarah Jessica Parker and John Mayer were also among the friends in attendance.

Another was Cohen’s good friend Kelly Ripa. On Live with Kelly and Ryan, she mentioned she was “in” the delivery room via Facetime, and she got choked up about the birth.

“He’s obviously over the moon…He looks like he’s been born to do this his whole life…He’s been, at times, a surrogate dad to my own kids,” she gushed.

Then, getting emotional, Ripa said, “He is a great, great family man. I am so happy for you both, because this baby is the luckiest baby, and Andy is the luckiest dad.”

For his part, Cohen tweeted back, “Awwwwww @KellyRipa you made me cry,” followed by heart emoji.

Oscars appetizer: Nominees gather for the Academy Awards luncheon

By Stephen Iervolino

Regina King – Tatum Mangus / Annapurna Pictures (LOS ANGELES) — Every year, ahead of the Academy Awards, that year’s crop of new nominees gather for a luncheon that culminates in a star-studded group photo. This year’s event took place on Monday, and ABC’s Chris Connelly caught up with some of this year’s hopefuls.

Melissa McCarthy, nominated for Can You Ever Forgive Me?, brought her mom as her date, and told Connelly that mom had a specific question before she accepted the invitation.

“She’s like, ‘Well, do we really get lunch?'” McCarthey laughed. “And I said, ‘We do. The luncheon will provide a lunch!'” And I was like, “Is…the deal off if they don’t give lunch?”

In a career that’s spanned more than 50 years, Sam Elliott earned his first-ever Oscar nomination, for his role as Bradley Cooper’s character’s brother in A Star Is Born. But as Elliott told Connelly, he’s always seen his career as a marathon, not a sprint.

“I wanted to do this when I was a young kid and on same level,” the laid-back actor drawled. “I felt it was against all odds, it was like a pipe dream, but it was my pipe dream. And, y’know, I was prepared to spend a lifetime pursuing it.”

For Emmy and Golden Globe-winner Regina King, her Oscar nomination for If Beale Street Could Talk means giving a hand up to others.

“I hope that it allows me to be in a position to create more opportunities, to be a part of the inclusion happening on a bigger level,” she says of her newfound showbiz status as a nominee. “You don’t want to receive these accolades and not do what you’re supposed to do as a human being.”

The 91st annual Academy Awards air February 24 on ABC.

By Stephen Iervolino

ABC/Richard Cartwright(LOS ANGELES) — ABC announced today that its Emmy Award-winning series Modern Family is coming back — for an 11th and final season.

“For 10 years, our characters have bravely faced turning points in life and moved through them to great personal enrichment; we have chosen a different path by doing one more season of Modern Family,” quipped co-creator and executive producer Christopher Lloyd.

The show’s other co-creator and executive producer, Steve Levitan, joked, “Even after 10 years together, we realized there are still some things our writers don’t yet know about each other’s sex lives.”

Striking a more serious tone, ABC Entertainment president Karey Burke said of Lloyd and co-creator Steve Levitan, “Chris and Steve have created one of the most seminal and iconic comedies in television history…In its final season, there will be more milestone events that anyone who has been a fan of the series won’t want to miss.”

A five-time Emmy winner for Outstanding Comedy Series, Modern Family, which focuses on an extended and blended family, is one of the most awarded comedy series on television.

In addition to Emmys, over the past ten years, its accolades include a Golden Globe win, four SAG Award wins, two GLAAD Media Awards, and a host of others.
