By Jake Coyle   LOS ANGELES (AP)—An Academy Awards that sparkled with more women and African-American winners than ever before came to a screeching halt with the night's final honor.

By Mark Kennedy   NEW YORK (AP)—Rita Moreno plays one of TV's best villains. Or is she one of its snidest heroines? Either way, her sassy grandmother on the Netflix reboot of “One Day at a Time” is truly a funny concoction. Her Lydia wears makeup to bed, has a gun on hand and still is seductive in her 80s. “I came out of the womb wearing stilettos,” she purrs in a Cuban accent. The show has retooled Norman Lear's old sitcom for a Latin family. Moreno, one of the rare EGOT winners, is enjoying a purple creative patch lately with the...
