Awards season is picking up steam!

The 24th annual Screen Actors Guild Awards are just around the corner, and all the major players will once again be competing for a coveted Actor statuette. The awards will be simulcast live on TNT and TBS at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT on Sunday, Jan. 21.

The winners of the statuettes (commonly called “the Actor”) are chosen by card-carrying members of the Screen Actors Guild — meaning that recognition comes from the winners’ peers in the industry.

And this year the SAG Awards are making history by having their first-ever host — none other than Kristen Bell.

During an interview with PEOPLE Now, Bell revealed how husband Dax Shepard had been helping her prepare for the big night. “He doesn’t really give out pointers or advice so much as he gives out unending support, which is very nice,” the 37-year-old explained.

She also added that living with a writer is “very helpful” because “you can sort of whisper things in their ear as they’re falling asleep.”

“I’m like, ‘Is this funny?’ ”

The two films will vie for the award for outstanding ensemble, along with The Big Sick, Get Out and Netflix’s Mudbound.

The 13 children found malnourished and shackled in their Perris, California home were allegedly deprived of many things by their parents including regular meals, access to lavatories, and daily showers. But there’s one thing investigators have found they were given: journals to write their stories.

In an interview with ABC News, Riverside County District Attorney Mike Hestrin said that “hundreds of journals” have been recovered from the children’s home — material he thinks will likely be able to document what was happening inside the “house of horrors” in real time.

“My guess is that’s going to be powerful evidence about what was happening from the perspective of the victims,” he said. “We have a lot of evidence to go through. We’ve got the journals to go through, more interviews to do.”

Parents David Allen Turpin, 57, and Louis Anna Turpin, 49, were arrested after their 17-year-old daughter — who had been planning her escape for two years, according to Hestrin — climbed through one of the windows of their home early on Sunday and called 911 using a disconnected cell phone she had found.

Police allege that the 13 Turpin children, ranging in ages from 2 to 29, were found living in squalor with some “shackled” to furniture.

David and Louis were charged with 12 counts of torture, seven counts of abuse of a dependent adult, six counts of child abuse or neglect and 12 counts of false imprisonment for crimes dating back to 2010, Hestrin said in a press release. David was also charged with one count of lewd act on a child under the age of 14 by force, fear, or duress.

Both plead not guilty to all charges and remain in custody. If convicted, each faces up to 94 years to life in prison.

At a news conference Thursday, authorities alleged that the children were allowed to shower no more than once a year and were regularly fed very little. They alleged the kids were restrained by ropes and later chains as a form of punishment.

Malnutrition apparently stunted their growth, Hestrin said. One of the victims, 12, has the weight of an average 7-year-old, police said. The 29-year-old victim weighed just 82 lbs. when found. The toddler, 2, was the only one who appeared to have been regularly fed.

Medical officials treating the siblings say they face a long recovery.

“In more than 20 years as a prosecutor in Riverside County, this is one of the most disturbing cases I’ve seen,” Hestrin said in his press release Thursday. “We are fully prepared to seek justice in this case and to do so in a way that protects all of these victims from further harm.”

Among other behaviors, Hestrin alleged in his press conference that the Turpins, including parents and children, slept all day and were “up all through the night,” going to bed about 4 or 5 a.m.

The children were allowed to shower no more than once a year and none had “ever” seen a dentist, he said. They last saw a doctor more than four years ago, he said, and were fed very little.

Hestrin said the children suffered “severe caloric malnourishment.” Supposedly home-schooled, he said the kids “lacked a basic knowledge of life” when they were recovered from the Turpin residence, with some of the younger children not even knowing what a police officer is.

Bizarrely, however, he said David and Louise allegedly purchased enough food for themselves and would leave some of it, including pies, out on the counter where their children could see — but could not eat it.

“A lot” of toys, all unopened, were also found inside the home, Hestrin said.

Speaking to reporters after their court hearing on Thursday, attorneys for David and Louise declined to comment beyond broad reactions about the allegations against them.

“It doesn’t get much more serious in terms of severity of the conduct being alleged and also the exposure in prison,” said Jeff Moore, Louise’s attorney.

He tells PEOPLE, “The allegations carry life in state prison. In terms of possible sentences this is about as serious as it gets.”

Echoing that, David’s attorney, David Macher, says, “It is a very serious case. Anytime you are talking about a century of imprisonment is a very serious case.”

Prosecutor Kevin Beecham says, “It is a horrible case. It is unfortunate for everyone involved. Thank goodness they are out now.”

Anyone with information about the Turpin family is urged to call Riverside County Senior District Attorney Investigator Wade D. Walsvick at 951-955-5400.

Following the news that Tom Petty died of an accidental drug overdose, his daughter Annakim shared a social media message insisting her father hadn’t been a drug addict.

“Thomas Earl Petty lived a million lifetimes in one. He over came much psychic pain from an abusive childhood by transforming his anger into the greatest rock n roll band ever. My dad in the past openly overcame a crippling drug problem with no shame,” daughter Annakim, 35, shared on Instagram Friday, shortly after news of her father’s autopsy was made public.

“His recent death is tragic yet he died from doing what he loved and what will continue to keep his spirit alive. Touring with a broken hip because he would have it no other way. He loved performing. There are no hypothetical questions I love my dad and feel he is an immortal badass,” she wrote.

“The amount of pain his hip caused was beyond a normal surgery. He is at peace out of pain I thank you for respecting my family’s privacy and inviting love during this shocking new chapter. My dad loved his life and left behind so much love in his music for us to share. Invite love listen to Tom Petty. He passed away with his family in a room filled with love. I feel very connected to him,” Annakim concluded her message.

In a statement posted on the late singer’s website Friday evening, his family said the 66-year-old had been using a number of medications, including opioid pain medication fentanyl.

Petty died of “multi-system organ failure” caused by “mixed drug toxicity,” according to the autopsy report, released on Friday by the Los Angeles County Coroner. During an examination on Oct. 3, the medical examiner found fentanyl, oxycodone, temazepam, alprazolam, citalopram, acetylfentanyl and despropionyl fentanyl. Petty was also suffering from coronary artery atherosclerosis and emphysema.

“Our family sat together this morning with the Medical Examiner – Coroner’s office and we were informed of their final analysis that Tom Petty passed away due to an accidental drug overdose as a result of taking a variety of medications,” Petty’s family said in a statement, signed by widow Dana and daughter Adria, 42.

Petty’s longtime manager previously released a statement at the time of the musician’s death explaining that Petty suffered cardiac arrest at his home in Malibu, California, on Oct. 2 and was taken to UCLA Medical Center but could not be revived.

“Unfortunately Tom’s body suffered from many serious ailments including emphysema, knee problems and most significantly a fractured hip. On the day he died he was informed his hip had graduated to a full-on break and it is our feeling that the pain was simply unbearable and was the cause for his overuse of medication,” the family said in their statement.

The Los Angeles County coroner’s office completed an autopsy on Petty in October, but the official cause of death required further examination at the time.

“We knew before the report was shared with us that he was prescribed various pain medications for a multitude of issues including fentanyl patches and we feel confident that this was, as the coroner found, an unfortunate accident,” the family said on Friday.

Fentanyl is the same opiate that killed Prince in 2016. The Centers for Disease Control estimates that fentanyl is 80 times as potent as morphine and hundreds of times more potent than heroin. Classified as a Schedule II drug by the federal government, its medical uses are typically pain management following surgery or for chronic pain.

“As a family we recognize this report may spark a further discussion on the opioid crisis and we feel that it is a healthy and necessary discussion and we hope in some way this report can save lives. Many people who overdose begin with a legitimate injury or simply do not understand the potency and deadly nature of these medications,” the Petty family continued.

“On a positive note we now know for certain he went painlessly and beautifully exhausted after doing what he loved the most, for one last time, performing live with his unmatchable rock band for his loyal fans on the biggest tour of his 40 plus year career,” they said. “He was extremely proud of that achievement in the days before he passed.”

The Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers frontman is survived by his wife, Dana, his daughters Adria, Annakim, 35, and his stepson Dylan, 24.
