The Great British Bake Off 2017, episode six – as it happened

Pastry week. Who was puffed with success and who was too flaky to make it?

9.17pm BST

Another unexpectedly emotional climax, at least for me. Boy wonder takes the crown, but we lose wonderful, adorable Julia. She was too good. Like a mad pony no one can ride, but can’t bear to get rid of. But get rid they have.

Thanks very much for your vigorous activity below the line, and your tips on the best bakeries in town. (Nandos, apparently.) I’ll be back next week and hope you will too? In the meantime come say hello on twitter, facebook and Instagram. Or release a trio of winged monkeys to hunt me down. It’s just nice to be thought of.

9.13pm BST

She’s only 21, as well! How are these people so talented? It’s actually making me angry and confused.

Oh Julia, we will miss you.

Fleetwood Mac at 50: Mick Fleetwood Shares Tales of Blues and Friendship from the Iconic Band’s Early Days

Fleetwood Mac at 50: Mick Fleetwood Shares Tales of Blues and Friendship from the Iconic Band’s Early Days
For many, the story of Fleetwood Mac begins with the 1974 arrival of Lindsay Buckingham and Stevie Nicks, the talented yet combustible American duo who ignited an explosive string of hits that continue to define the band. But Mick Fleetwood wants to move past those rumors. Fans of the group’s pop jewels would hardly recognize their original incarnation as one of the most respected British blues bands of the ’60s. Now the founding drummer is telling the tale of those formative years in Love That Burns: A Chronicle of Fleetwood Mac, Volume One 1967–1974, a lavish new book by Genesis Publications due out Sept.

Synch This!: Ralph, ‘Cold to the Touch’

Synch This!: Ralph, ‘Cold to the Touch’
As Canadians like Justin Bieber, Drake, Alessia Cara, Shawn Mendes and The Weeknd tighten their grip on the U.S. pop charts, it’s easy to understand how a few fringe favorites might slip through the cracks without an Ovo, Xo or Sb Projects co-sign.

Standing tall among that pack is Ralph, a 26-year-old Toronto native who released her self-titled Ep earlier this year on the same Canadian label that first launched Carly Rae Jepsen in the pre-“Call Me Maybe” era. Working with pop producer Mike Wise, Ralph has cultivated a synth-y sound that positions her firmly in the same hyper-melodic realm as “Tango in the Night”-era Fleetwood Mac devotees like Haim, Shura and Bleachers, but with a street-wise sass that presents a different pop perspective from the constantly-crushing material found on latter-day Jepsen records.

'Time Traveling Bong': Welcome to Stoner Comedy, 'Broad City' Style

'Time Traveling Bong': Welcome to Stoner Comedy, 'Broad City' Style
The time machine has taken many forms over the centuries: Dr. Who, Bill and Ted all ventured through the fourth dimension in a phone booth; Doc Brown used a Delorean; Homer Simpson a toaster; and an illegal Russian energy drink was all it took to send a certain hot tub hopping through the spacetime continuum. When Broad City stars Ilana Glazer and Paul W. Downs, and writer/director Lucia Aniello, decided to put a stoner spin on the genre, they centered their time travel pipe dream around the only logical choice: A bong.

A Short History of the Oscars and Cross-Gender Performances
On Sunday, movie fans will find out if Eddie Redmayne wins Best Actor for his performance as trans woman Lili Elbe in The Danish Girl. Should Redmayne be victorious, he'd not only score back-to-back Oscars but he would also become the latest in a long line of actors who have courted Oscar attention by playing the opposite sex, playing a trans person or in some other way playing a character whose gender differs than the one of which the actors themselves identify. Not that it comes without some criticism, of course. Also up for an Oscar this year is the

Nashville Season 3 Finale Recap: Whose Flatline Is It Anyway?

Nashville Season 3 Finale Recap: Whose Flatline Is It Anyway?
The following contains spoilers from Nashville‘s Season 3 finale. (Because it would be a terrible recap if it didn’t.)

Nashville‘s fourth season needs to get here, Stat.

While I do not actually believe that a series built on the promise of Rayna Jaymes reuniting with soulmate Deacon Claybourne would eliminate one half of that equation at this point, I’d feel a lot better knowing for certain that the Ekg flatline we see at the end of the Season 3 finale isn’t hooked up to his strapping, just-the-right-amount-of-furred chest.

Sometimes They Come Back: In Defense of the TV Revival

Admit it. A little part of your soul died when you heard Netflix greenlit a 13-episode revival of Full House. Sure, it was all fun, flannel, and Doc Martens when Showtime announced they were bringing back Twin Peaks and Fox agreed to re-open The X-Files. But then Coach got inexplicably thrown back in the game, and Full House was resuscitated as Fuller House, and suddenly you were side-eyeing your television, afraid it was about to morph from a sleek wide-screen into a clunky 1990s Crt.

But don’t despair. Fuller House isn’t a sign TV’s current “golden age” has ended; it’s actually a sign that it’s still thriving. There is such a surplus of good, original television content available from so many sources that it’s nearly impossible for productions to get noticed. It’s understandable that networks are tempted by known commodities that can generate instant buzz.

Watch: Bradley Cooper & Rachel McAdams Face Off In The First Clip From Cameron Crowe’s ‘Aloha’

If Bradley Cooper played a very damaged and spiritually heavy military figure in “American Sniper,” his outfit is decidedly lighter in Cameron Crowe’s latest romantic dramedy, “Aloha.” In the picture, Cooper plays a defense contractor who falls for an Air Force pilot (Emma Stone) in Hawaii who is really his polar opposite. But before that romance can bloom, he has to contend with his still-conflicted feelings for his ex girlfriend, played by Rachel McAdams. Hawaii is also the setting for one of Cooper’s character’s biggest professional humiliations. He’s a workaholic who screwed up royally a few years back. So the backdrop of the movie is a chance for redemption, which makes sense since the picture feels like another “second chance at happiness” comedy from Crowe.

The Americans, Ep. 3.13: “March 8, 1983″ ends the season with appropriate hopelessness

The Americans, Season 3, Episode 13: “March 8, 1983”

Written by Joel Fields & Joe Weisberg

Directed by Daniel Sackheim

Airs Wednesdays at 10pm (Et) on FX

If “The Chain” was the perfect Fleetwood Mac song to accompany the closing montage of “Walter Taffet,” the shocker of a midseason episode which introduced, among other things, Gaad’s discovery of the bug in his office, “March 8, 1983” could’ve ended with “Little Lies.” Although there have been many impressive aspects in the third season of The Americans, one aspect that has been pointed out repeatedly in this space has been the thematic cohesion of its episodes. This season has been remarkably broad in scope, and Joel Fields and Joe Weisberg have consistently used the wide frame, in conjunction with a tight thematic focus, to contrast how characters in different locations react to similar scenarios (i.e. love, death, etc.). Appropriately enough for a show about spying and deception,

Cameron Crowe Reveals Aloha Soundtrack List and New Poster

Though initially scheduled for last December, we finally have a new Cameron Crowe movie coming our way in just over a month. And as with every new film from the writer/director, we’re also highly anticipating a new soundtrack. Today, Crowe revealed the full track listing for his romantic comedy Aloha, which stars Bradley Cooper as a defense contractor overseeing a weapons satellite launch from Hawaii who teams up with (and falls for) an Air Force pilot (Emma Stone) to scuttle a launch. Crowe is an excellent mix tape creator, and he looks to have imbued Aloha with plenty of island-centric tracks as well as some other unexpected treasures, like Hall & Oates’ “I Can’t Go For That (No Can Do)” and Fleetwood Mac’s “I Know I’m Not Wrong.” In addition to the soundtrack, Sony Pictures also unveiled the first poster for the film.

Soundtrack For Cameron Crowe's 'Aloha' Features Beck, Fleetwood Mac, Kurt Vile, Jónsi & Alex, And More

Cameron Crowe's "Aloha" arrives in cinemas next month, which means we'll be getting another curated soundtrack from the writer/director. Music has always played a vital role in his films, from setting the mood to adding dimension to the characters on screen, and tunes selected for "Aloha" certainly promise another textured playlist. Leading things off are a half dozen tunes from a variety of Hawaiian music legends. Clearly, the state isn't just a pretty backdrop to the movie, but an important setting. After that are more familiar names, mixing current indie acts and bonafide classic acts including Beck, David Crosby, Fleetwood Mac, Kurt Vile, The Blue Nile, Radical Face, and The Tallest Man On Earth. Meanwhile, Jónsi & Alex have contributed two new songs to the soundtrack as well. "Aloha" arrives in cinemas on May 29th, with the soundtrack streeting on May 26th. Full tracklist below.

Anne Hathaway Comes Close to Flashing New York While Experiencing a Marilyn Monroe Moment With Her Skirt

Anne Hathaway Comes Close to Flashing New York While Experiencing a Marilyn Monroe Moment With Her Skirt
Today's forecast calls for unusual weather and unpredictable wardrobe malfunctions. Anne Hathaway was just trying to enjoy a spring day in Manhattan Wednesday afternoon with husband Adam Shulman. Wearing a floral skirt with a white button-down and black flats, the Brooklyn native was dressed perfectly for a city that experienced temperatures in the 70s. Bet you don't miss that snow, right New Yorkers? Her husband looked just as spiffy in a retro Fleetwood Mac T-shirt, denim jeans and black sneakers. But while strolling hand-in-hand, a sudden burst of wind surfaced in the air that forced Hathaway's skirt to fly up.  Based on her face, the Les Misérables and Devil Wears Prada star was...
