Question of the Day
Amanda Bynes had another run-in with the law when she was pulled over for driving on a suspended license by a Southern California airport.
Burbank’s Bob Hope Airport spokesman Victor Gill says airport police cited the actress and impounded her car Sunday.
He said in a statement that “police did cite Amanda Bynes for driving a vehicle with a suspended drivers license this morning.”
Miss Bynes’ driving privileges had been suspended after she was charged with hit-and-run in connection with two traffic crashes.
Los Angeles prosecutors accused Miss Bynes of leaving the scene of two accidents, one April 10 and another Aug. 4, without providing proper information. The first incident occurred just days after Miss Bynes was arrested on suspicion of drunken driving. She has pleaded not guilty in that case.
The 26-year-old is best known for her role in the WB’s “What I Like About You” and the film “Easy A.”
Emmy nominees share their favorite TV shows
Long before Kevin Costner, Bryan Cranston, Christina Hendricks and Nicole Kidman were Emmy nominees, they were children who loved watching TV.
“I liked ‘Man From U.N.C.L.E.’ and ‘High Chaparral,’” Mr. Costner said. “I really, really liked that when I was a kid.”
“I remember the transition from black-and-white to color,” continued Mr. Costner, who is nominated as both star and producer of the TV movie “Hatfields & McCoys.” “It was like one by one the televisions in my neighborhood became color TVs, and we would all go look at each other’s color TVs and ooh and aah at ‘Bonanza.’ I’m kind of glad I saw it all, in a way. I remember the TV would shut off at 11 and just play the national anthem all night long.”
Mr. Cranston, who is nominated for his role on “Breaking Bad” — which won him the Emmy Award three years in a row, grew up on “The Andy Griffith Show.”
“I love the character of Barney: Classic comic character of the absolute confident man with no ability whatsoever. Always funny. The calm and comforting tones of Andy Griffith, who we lost recently,” the actor said. “I think there was just something very sweet and comforting about watching that show, and the simplicity of the lifestyle and a days-gone-by kind of thing.”
Miss Hendricks, nominated for the third consecutive time for her supporting role in “Mad Men,” said her all-time favorites were “M*A*S*H” and “Northern Exposure.”
“Both of them had a sense of real community and camaraderie among the cast, a sense of friendship in this world that I remember responding to,” she said.
Miss Kidman, a first-time Emmy nominee for her lead role in the TV movie “Hemingway & Gellhorn,” said she was raised on “The Brady Bunch” and “Bewitched.”
