Amanda Seyfried Dives Deep At Dear John Premiere


Amanda Seyfried

While other photos reveal some see-through support, Amanda Seyfried appeared to risk a mammoth wardrobe malfunction at the Dear John premiere in Hollywood last night. That Seyfried and co-star Channing Tatum shot a new ending for the Nicholas Sparks adaptation just last month doesn’t bode well, but the pair’s giggly antics on the promotional circuit suggests Seyfried and Tatum have some serious chemistry—though hopefully not as much as they had with their respective former co-stars/current lovers Dominic Cooper (Mamma Mia!) and Jenna Dewan (Step Up). Could these be the young stars’ dramatic breakthrough? See who joined the stars on the red carpet in the gallery below.

Your Full List Of 2010 Oscar Nominees


Best Picture

The Blind Side
District 9
An Education
The Hurt Locker
Inglourious Basterds
A Serious Man
Up In The Air

— We went 7-for-10 in our Best Picture predictions yesterday, erroneously including Invictus and Nine, two semi-flop dramas that I underestimatedly expected the Academy to just toss in there, and also mistakenly included Crazy Heart, which apparently only exists so Jeff Bridges can finally get his Acting Oscar.

In their places, the Academy, in a stunning display of open-mindedness and competency, actually included Up and District 9, two awesome and universally well-reviewed movies that I was rooting for, but which are precisely the type of films that never would’ve had a shot to crack the 5 nominees under the old system (maybe this 10 nominee thing is only slightly completely ridiculous?) They also threw in The Blind Side — a film that voters would’ve forgotten if it came out earlier in the year or didn’t perform as well at the box office — which I definitely didn’t see coming. Get it? Blind Side? Didn’t see it coming? Whoa, I just got nominated for an Oscar for COMEDY.

Best Actress

Sandra Bullock, The Blind Side
Helen Mirren, The Last Station
Carey Mulligan, An Education
Gabourey Sidibe, Precious
Meryl Streep, Julia And Julia

— Probably a toss-up between Mulligan and Bullock, depending on whether Hollywood wants to pull the “Make Younger Actress More Known To Boost Future Box Offices” or the “Reward Veteran Actress For Doing A Bunch Of Movies”. I think they’ll go with Bullock.

Best Actor

Jeff Bridges, Crazy Heart
George Clooney, Up In The Air
Colin Firth, A Single Man
Morgan Freeman, Invictus
Jeremy Renner, The Hurt Locker

— Much as I’d love to see Renner snag this, it’s clearly Jeff Bridges’ to lose. Clooney will get some votes too, but ultimately his position will be weakened because he already has a Supporting Actor Award, whereas it’s probably a now-or-never year for the well-liked Bridges.

After the jump, the rest of your 2010 Academy Award Nominees — feel free to leave your own reactions / predictions in the comments:

Pop Stars Update “We Are The World” For Haiti


We Are The World

Though noticably short on rock stars (Rob Thomas may pass for Steve Perry, but Joel Madden does not pass for Bruce Springsteen), Quincy Jones and Lionel Richie assembled an impressive array of talent for their 25th anniversary re-recording of “We Are The World” Monday night. Among those appearing on the single to benefit Haitian relief efforts are Akon, Will.I.Am, Beach Boys Brian Wilson and Al Jardine, Tony Bennett, Justin Bieber, Toni Braxton, Miley Cyrus, Celine Dion, Jamie Foxx, Tyrese Gibson, Josh Groban, Heart’s Ann and Nancy Wilson, Keri Hilson, Jennifer Hudson, Enriquie Iglesias, Wyclef Jean, the Jonas Brothers, Kid Cudi, Gladys Knight, LL Cool J, Katharine McPhee, Jason Mraz, Pink, Carlos Santana, Nicole Scherzinger, Snoop Dogg, Jordin Sparks, Barbra Streisand, Usher and Kanye West, who was undoubtedly on his best behavior after that Hope For Haiti snub.

While Lil Wayne has revealed he covered Bob Dylan’s vocal, the full singing order has yet to be revealed (we’re pretty sure Vince Vaughn redid Dan Ackroyd‘s part, though). Check out photos from the recording, which was shot in 3-D for release later this month, in the gallery below.

RuPaul’s First Music Video Show Glimmers of Future Fabulosity


Last night, we liveblogged the premiere of RuPaul’s Drag Race on Logo, which proved to be both entertaining and informative (as an example, they call sleeping with women “fishing,” something that is both horrifying and proof that they don’t sleep with women). And watching that bejewelled gazelle RuPaul glide across our small screens in various flowy frocks got us wondering: How exactly did America’s most famous tucker (Brazil has a different winner) get her start?

Oh internet, you answerer of all inane questions, once again you have come to the rescue. We learned that Ru’s first single was a mind blender of beats called “Ping Ting Ting,” and for what it lacks in catchiness, it makes for up for in horrifying images. Enjoy!

AD WIZARDS: Punxsutawney Polamalu Sees His Shadow, Is Also Probably Rabid


The real Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow this morning, meaning we’re in for six more weeks of winter (or possibly not, as it’s a groundhog), but far more disturbing is this commercial for TruTV, featuring a feral, miniaturized version of the Steelers’ Troy Polamalu, who projects we’re in for six more weeks of football.

I personally don’t believe him, both because the Super Bowl is this coming Sunday, and because I don’t trust anyone that so closely resembles Little Man:

FABlife’s DVD Pick Of The Week



Zombies go with anything. Read Pride and Prejudice and Zombies lately? So this horror comedy will be remembered less for its rotting undead than the funny misadventures of a quartet of misfits in post-apocalyptic America. Jesse Eisenberg fills in as the poor man’s Michael Cera, Woody Harrelson does his funny redneck routine, Abigail Breslin is not annoying and Superbad‘s Emma Stone comes into her own as a sexy loner. They pick off the flesh-eaters on the way to the Pacific Palisades theme park like National Lampoon’s Vacation with a thirty-ought-six. There’s also a surprise appearance by … well, that would be telling. Load up on the popcorn and see for yourself.

Extras: Deleted scenes, FX documentary, making of featurette and commentary from cast and crew.

Jim Carrey And Ewan McGregor Make Out, Possibly To Promote Their Movie


Here’s Jim Carrey and Ewan McGregor, the co-stars of the I guess this is a comedy based on the trailer but I thought it was a drama based on everything I read about it I Love You Phillip Morris, making out in front of cameras at a press gathering today:

Consider this the start of a publicity blitz in which Jim Carrey gets asked by Oprah, the View ladies, Letterman, Ellen, and everyone else on tv “What was it like kissing a man?” and Carrey going “Honestly, it turned me on a little” and the audience going “wooooo!!!!”

It’ll be like the Chuck and Larry publicity carousel, but with a chance of being watchable.

Katy Perry: Google Alerts Ruined Russell’s Proposal


Katy Perry & Russell Brand

Looks like we weren’t the only people who saw Katy Perry‘s engagement coming. The singer has confessed that online reports preceding Russell Brand‘s New Year’s eve wedding proposal kind of spoiled the surprise for her. “Unfortunately, I still Google myself sometimes, I saw it on Google alerts,” she said at Clive Davis‘ pre-Grammy party. “I’m going to be honest.” It sounds like the British comedian still found a way to sweep her off her feet, though. “There was an elephant involved. We were on an elephant just before it. We were in India, It was at midnight, and it is not a good idea to be on the back of an elephant during a fireworks display.” It also might not be a good idea for two sex-crazed stars to plan marriage less than six months after they started dating, but why spoil the fun?

Any disappointment about us squealers appeared long gone this weekend, with Katy and Russell living it up at Grammy pre and and post parties as Perry filled her Twitter with praise of Pink, photos of pals Adam Lambert and Rihanna, and even a shot with to Jersey Shore‘s own Snooki…who may or may not have known what was happening. See their brief encounter in the gallery below.
