Gwyneth Paltrow Takes On Ice Bucket in a Bikini – & Challenges Chris Martin!

The Ice Bucket Challenge is designed to leave you frigid. But clearly there’s nothing chilly between Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin, judging by this video of the actress taking the plunge.

The Oscar winner, 41, wore a bikini for her dousing, which she posted to Instagram as part of the ongoing campaign benefitting the ALS Association.

And she challenged Martin, her husband of a decade – from whom she uncoupled in March – to do the ice bucket next.

Martin isn’t the only one in Paltrow’s sights. The actress also challenged Cameron Diaz and designer Stella McCartney.

What If MTV Ran the Emmy Awards?

Emmy Nominations 2014: What If MTV Ran the Emmys?

To avoid a conflict with Sunday Night Football, NBC moved the 2014 Emmy Awards telecast up a month, to August 25. But in swerving clear of the football juggernaut, the Emmys steered right into the lane of the landmark cultural occasion of late August: the MTV VMAs, scheduled for one day prior.

It got us thinking: What if we took things to their logical conclusion and handed MTV control of the Emmys, as well?

Using categories from both the VMAs and their summertime counterpart, the MTV Movie Awards, we’ve imagined what would happen if the cable network was in charge of handing out trophies for everything that’s on TV, not just music videos.

Massive spoilers below!

Best Fight: Every fight from American Horror Story: Coven

What’s better than two women talking about something other than a man? Two women fighting about something other than a man – in particular, which one of them will reign Supreme. These witches’ marvelous bitchcraft cast a spell on us all season long, and they inspired one of the best memes of 2013.

Best Kiss: Ted and The Mother, How I Met Your Mother

After years of teasing, HIMYM finally made a full-fledged character out of the Mother in its final season, and all the anticipation built around her arrival paid off (an occurrence that was increasingly rare in the show’s later years). All of her moments with Ted were so good – why’d they have to kill her off?

Best Shirtless Performance: Adam Driver, Girls

This award will be Adam Driver’s until Girls goes off the air, or until he leaves TV entirely to take up a full-time job attending Star Wars conventions. Whichever comes first.

Best Villain: Walter White, Breaking Bad

Showrunner Vince Gilligan pitched Breaking Bad as one man’s transformation “from Mr. Chips to Scarface,” and in the AMC drama’s final season, Walter White’s villainy was finally laid bare. Whether or not the finale gave him his proper comeuppance remains an open question.

Best On-Screen Duo: Rust Cohle and Marty Hart, True Detective

No pair of mismatched partners who learn to begrudgingly accept each other were ever more mismatched than this pair of Louisiana detectives who learned to begrudgingly accept each other. One was a philosophizing nihilist prone to insane flights of rhetorical fancy, the other was a disgraced family man with deep-seated issues towards women. Together, they made an unstoppable team.

Breakthrough Performance: Laverne Cox, Orange Is the New Black

Before her starmaking turn on Orange Is the New Black, Laverne Cox was best known for her desire to work for Diddy in the VH1 reality show I Want to Work for Diddy. After it, she became a world-famous advocate for transgender rights and a pioneering TIME cover star. She’s going to look great on Emmys night.

#WTF Moment: Frank Underwood, Zoe Barnes & the subway, House of Cards

Fans of the original House of Cards knew that Zoe Barnes was likely not long for this world – her British equivalent was tossed off the Houses of Parliament at the end of the BBC miniseries’ first season. But nobody could have predicted the swiftness with which the Netflix drama dispatched its intrepid reporter, who was tossed in front of a DC Metro train in the season two premiere.

Best Series with a Social Message: TIE: Orange Is the New Black and The Normal Heart

Does MTV do ties? We do ties. We couldn’t choose between HBO’s gripping examination of the nature of activism in the early days of the AIDS crisis and Netflix’s commitment to showcasing a diverse group of women’s stories … so we chose them both!

Best Musical Moment: “The Best Things in Life Are Free,” Mad Men

Before Mad Men, actor Robert Morse was most famous for starring in How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying – if any character in the 1960s ad agency was going to burst into song, it was going to be his wise old Bert Cooper. Taking place at the end of an episode that saw Cooper’s death (while watching the moon landing), this ornate musical number was a fitting send-off for both character and actor.

Best On-Screen Transformation: Lady Mary, Downton Abbey

Downton‘s first few seasons saw Lady Mary evolve from haughty heiress to loving wife, and in its fourth season she changed yet again, this time into a hardened, dead-eyed widow. Credit to Michele Dockery for showing Mary’s slow walk back towards the light – on a series that’s not afraid to turn the melodrama up to 11, her subtle transformation stole the show.

Best Cameo: Prince, New Girl

There may not have been more obvious post-Super Bowl ratings stunts, but there have definitely been many worse. The L.A. roommates’ visit to Prince’s house saw the Purple One indulge in a little light self-mockery, while still keeping his legend intact. Did you know he can talk to butterflies?

Best Pop: Oberyn Martell, Game of Thrones

Pierce Brosnan Loses to Jimmy Fallon in ‘GoldenEye 007’ (VIDEO)

Just because you star in a video game, doesn’t mean you’ll be any good at it.

That’s the hard lesson Pierce Brosnan learned during his appearance on The Tonight Show Tuesday – the former Bond, James Bond, was handily defeated by Jimmy Fallon at the classic Nintendo 64 game based on the first film Brosnan appeared in as the iconic British agent.

A generation of kids grew up playing “GoldenEye 007” on the N64 platform – it’s considered one of the most important titles in the first-person shooter genre and is a spiritual successor to millions-selling games like Microsoft’s “Halo” franchise.

But Brosnan apparently had little time to familiarize himself with the game during his tenure as 007 – he’s handily defeated by Fallon, who admits to a long-held desire to play the game with the man who inspired it. (At least they hug and make up at the end.)

Better luck next time, Pierce – maybe keep your fingers crossed for a Remington Steele game?

Meanwhile, Brosnan is back to his old spy tricks in The November Man, in which he plays an ex-CIA operative. The film hits theaters Aug. 27.

Watch the full clip from his appearance below.
