It's been one of the most controversial showbiz moments of the year to date. But Cuba Gooding Jr. couldn't resist poking fun at the biggest gaffe to hit Hollywood recently, as he sent-up the epic La La Land mistake from this year's Oscars at the BAFTA TV Awards . Taking to the stage at London's Royal Festival Hall on Sunday night, the 49-year-old Jerry Maguire star couldn't resist making light of the mistake that saw the musical wrongly declared winner of Best Movie at the ceremony in February. Looking every inch the Hollywood leading man in his black tuxedo, Cuba also showed off a micheivous side to his humour. Kicking off with a joke about his not wearing the correct footwear, quipping he'd had to wear his "rain boots" because of the dreary weather, the actor soon had the room in stitches. Pretending to struggle to read the auto-queue, he pretended to censor the pre-penned script, opening with: "I can’t do a transvestite joke I’m a BAFTA winner now!" But it seemed that … [Read more...] about Cuba Gooding Jr. sends-up Oscar’s La La Land gaffe as he gives out gong at BAFTA TV Awards

Traces Rating: Rick Stein's Secret France Rating: After flagging up the forensic crime drama Traces (Alibi) in this column yesterday, I wasn't going to mention it again. It's on an obscure pay-to-view cable channel that mostly airs reruns of Father Brown and Death In Paradise — wholesale repeats, provided as an added extra by the likes of Sky, BT or Virgin, to bulk out their schedules. Since Alibi isn't available on Freeview, you might not be able to receive it . . . and if you can, you probably didn't know. Traces on Alibi stars Molly Windsor (centre) as Emma, a tense, impulsive trainee forensics specialist who returns to Dundee, her home town, to take up her first lab job But Traces is very good. It's the station's first venture into original drama, and for fans of police serials where cold cases dredge up ancient secrets, such as Unforgotten or Dublin Murders, it's a pacy thriller well worth seeking out. Molly Windsor stars as Emma, a tense, impulsive trainee … [Read more...] about CHRISTOPHER STEVENS reviews last night’s TV: A brilliant crime thriller — if you can track it down on your telly
