Diva v. Diva
The much-ballyhooed 12th season of American Idol premiered on Fox last night and by pretty much all accounts, it was all about new judges Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj. New judge Keith Urban chimed in a few times, veteran judge Randy Jackson was loud and annoying but … for me (and many others, I’m sure) I was only watching for Mimi and Nicki. To be honest, I was surprised how much I loved Nicki on the show … she took charge more than any other judge, Mimi included, and I thought makes a great addition to the show. I enjoyed watching American Idol for the first time in many, many years. More »
A Big Night For Claire Danes, 'Argo,' and 'Les Misérables'
As many of you know, last night Hollywood was abuzz as the 70th annual Golden Globe Awards were held and hosted by Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. Some of last night’s big winners include Claire Danes and her series Homeland, as well as the movie Argo. Ben Affleck walked away with the award for Best Director, after getting snubbed by the Oscar nominations last week. Jennifer Lawrence also beat out some heavy hitters (including Meryl Streep) for her win for an actress in a Comedy or Musical. Oh, and Les Miz was also a pretty big deal– no surprise there!

'Lincoln' Gets 12 Noms, And Quvenzhané Wallis FTW!!!
Aghhh! So excited! So pumped! Soooo getting a t-shirt that says ‘F-ck Yeah Quvenzhané Wallis!‘ This morning Emma Stone and Seth MacFarlane announced the nominations for the 2013 Academy Awards and I’m quite pleased by what I’m seeing… although, I’m also HUGELY disappointed by one glaring snub. But still, it’s gonna be a good show. Lincoln, Argo, Django, Zero Dark Thirty, and Silver Linings Playbook are all getting lots of love (Lincoln leads the way with 12 nominations).

How Duchess of her
It’s been a few weeks since we’ve heard a peep of new information about Kate Middleton and her baby bump but today we are hearing that the Duchess of Cambridge is indulging in a curious pregnancy craving. According to reports, Kate has been craving lavender shortbread. While normal, non-royal women tend to crave things like ice cream and/or pickles, Katie has been feeding her baby bump lavender shortbread … which sounds just about fancy enough for the gestating heir to the British royal throne, don’t it?

Earlier today we learned of a report that claims that Lindsay Lohan is planning to “stay home” and not party this New Year’s Eve and right now we learn that at least one of those things is incorrect. Lindsay made her way to London, England yesterday ahead of New Year’s Eve to presumably ring in 2013 with friends … perhaps friends with benefits. As you may recall, Lindsay has recently been spending a lot of time with Max George of The Wanted … and by “spending a lot of time with”, I mean stalking the band on tour in an attempt to be as close to Max as possible while he’s still interested. Apparently, Lindsay is hoping that Max is at this point still interested in seeing her because she flew all the way to London to see him. Hmmm. More »
'Jewel in the Night'
While we Earthlings went about our business and celebrated Xmas here on planet Earth, the astronauts aboard the International Space Station in orbit enjoyed their own brand of Xmas celebrating. ISS commander Colonel Chris Hadfield is more than an astronaut, it turns out that he is also a musician as well. While in space, Hadfield composed and recorded a song titled Jewel in the Night … which was shared with those of us here on Earth as an extra special Xmas gift. Click below to learn more about this song, the first recorded in space, and give it a listen. More »
Rumor Has It ...
Stephen Amell, the hottie actor who plays Green Arrow on the CW series Arrow, is reportedly getting married on Xmas day tomorrow. Boy Culture is reporting that Amell and his ladylove are planning a surprise wedding in Puerto Rico, which altho not yet confirmed, sounds like a fantastic idea. Now, at this point, there aren’t many deets about the rumored nuptials but if true, it would mean that one of TV’s hottest actors is about to go off the market … which is both happy and sad news all at the same time ;) This post is an excuse to look at hot photos of Stephen Amell, so won’t you join me below?

I'm so serious, SO not ready
Last week I received a box that was covered in quotes by Edgar Allen Poe and I assumed it was a promo item sent to me by one of the movie/TV studios. I found out that I was correct when I opened it up and found a DVD screener and a creepy-ass mask (of Poe) inside. The promo items are for the new Fox series The Following, starring Kevin Bacon and James Purefoy. Yesterday afternoon, I spent some time watching the first 4 episodes of The Following and OMG, are y’all in for a jolt when the show debuts next month. Click below to see a poster and an extended trailer for the series and read what I think about what I saw. I have a feeling that The Following is going to make a big splash when it premieres in a few weeks. More »

PITNBRS Get Political-- And Rightly So
It’s been a couple of weeks since I’ve been able to share some of the best in our weekly reader comments, something I started doing every Sunday. Last weekend I was out of town celebrating the life and times of my mother’s twin sister, so this is the first round-up of comments I’ve been able to do in a minute. But because of the tragic events of the week, I’m inspired to do things a little differently this time around. Click inside for more!
