Simon is Team Tweedy

Simon Cowell has been introducing Cheryl Cole by her maiden name at X Factor auditions - fuelling speculation that she may dump her married name.

The 26-year-old Girls Aloud star filed for divorce from England player Ashley Cole last month following allegations of cheating.

And at Monday's London auditions for The X Factor, Cowell told the audience: "And this is Cheryl... Tweedy."

A spokeswoman for the show added that it was a "joking" reference.

She said: "Simon did jokingly introduce her to the audience as Cheryl Tweedy, but that is not part of the show."
And a spokesman for the singer said the matter had not been resolved, dismissing Cowell's reference as "banter".

He said: "No decision has been made on Cheryl's name. There was no confirmation at The X Factor. Banter is not confirmation."

It was the first time Cole had been officially introduced in public by her maiden name since her split from the Chelsea star.

The Fight For This Love star has a tattoo on the back of her neck with the words "Mrs C".

GLAAD calls on ABC's "The View" to Retract Hosts' Damaging Myths About African American Gay Men

On the June 22 broadcast of ABC's daytime talk show "The View," host Sherri Shepherd and guest host D.L. Hughley perpetuated dangerous myths about African American gay and bisexual men.

While discussing the FDA's ban that prevents gay and bisexual men from donating blood, Shepherd and Hughley communicated misinformation about the causes of increased HIV rates among African American women and used the phrase "down low" to describe men who have sex with men but publicly identify as heterosexual.

Lindsay Lohan's new role: rape, abuse and beastiality

Does there come a point in reenacting exploitation, humiliation, and sexual degradation where the reenactment essentially becomes real life for the performer forced to endure it? It’s a tough question about whether in its making, art can perpetuate or exploit the very moment it purports to condemn, and I guess we’ll have to ask Lindsay Lohan about it after she tries to get a dog to have sex with her in her new film, Inferno.

The Matthew Wilder film is just a script and a pair of promotional posters for now, but that script is one hot potato. Jezebel got their hands on it and according to them, the litany of abuses Lohan will suffer while portraying the porn star Linda Lovelace is… intense. Here’s a fun sampling of what Lohan as Lovelace goes through:

· Young Linda is walloped in the face by her mother and burned on her palm

· While being fingered by her husband Chuck, a humiliated Linda is forced to say, “I’m stupid and ugly,” “I’m a fat fatass,” and “I’m a piece of dogs**t stinkin’ up the sidewalk”

· Later, Chuck brutally kicks Linda with his sharp-toed Frey boots, then alternately kisses the bruises and presses down on them as part of sexual foreplay

· Linda’s breast is fondled by a strange businessman who sings a tune from Mary Poppins

· After a foursome that includes Sammy Davis Jr, Linda is coerced into coming on to a German Shepherd, who is really not that into it

There are also immortal lines for Lohan to utter like, “I was put on this earth for one thing and one thing only — sucking a footlong cock!” We’ve come a long way from her never-nude stripper in I Know Who Killed Me, haven’t we?

Missing out: The roles they should have taken

It's hard to predict which movies will hit the big time, as the actors who declined roles in The Godfather, The Matrix and Star Wars will tell you. Through gritted teeth. These movies could have made them bigger stars, and bigger bucks: but they turned 'em down.

So: who was the first choice for James Bond? Who turned down Pretty Woman because it was demeaning to women? Collapse )

HBIC talks about her engagement and possible Reno 911! Movie Sequel

Niecy Nash is ready to take 'Reno 911!' to a whole new level. The actress wants to bring her bootylicious character, Deputy Raineesha Williams, back to the big screen to engage in further misadventures with her counterpart, Deputy Trudy Wiegel (played by actress Kerri Kenney).

Although nothing is confirmed, Nash is fully prepared to "put her booty and baby hair back on," and tells PopEater at the "Flushing for a Cause" campaign in New York, adding that making another 'Reno' movie would be a "blessing" if it came to fruition.

Nash also opened up about her "delicious" love life, revealing, "I am a happy girl." But could there be wedding bells for the comedienne and boyfriend Jay Tucker? "I'm enjoying the journey and if at the end, I end up in a veil of sorts, it wouldn't be bad," she says.

Fans around the world honor Michael Jackson

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
A year after Michael Jackson's death caused a worldwide outpouring of shock, tears and tributes, the anniversary of his passing was being marked Friday on a quieter scale, as fans remembered their fallen King of Pop with vigils, prayer and, of course, music.

Some radio stations woke up listeners to Jackson's music; on U.S. television, all the major networks devoted a portion of their morning news programs to Jackson and more coverage was expected during prime-time hours. Events were planned across the globe, from Tokyo to New York.

Remembrances began even before the official anniversary. On Thursday night, Julia Thomas clutched her "Thriller" liner notes and stood outside the Forest Lawn cemetery in Glendale, Calif., Jackson's final resting place, with about two dozen fans.

"Michael has just always been a part of my life," said the 40-year-old Thomas, who has a tattoo of Jackson's dancing feet on her left wrist. "I'm just hoping to embrace the fans from everywhere."

M.I.A. Denies Calling Rihanna A Copycat

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
After Rihanna dropped her color video for her blazing single “Rude Boy,” observant music fans immediately noticed the similarities the clip shared with alternative hip-hop star M.I.A.’s video for “Boyz.”

As fans began to slap the “swagger jacker” label on the Bajan pop star, M.I.A. did nothing to smooth things over when she seemingly agreed with a vicious tweet by one mouthy fan who suggested Rihanna was not only a copycat, but also a part of the devil worshiping Illuminati.

Despite retweeting the jab for all to see, M.I.A. says those words were not hers and should not be taken as a co-sign. “It was way taken out of context because I like Rihanna,” M.I.A. said during an interview with New York City DJ Angie Martinez. “[I think] this particular girl that tweeted this thing is really funny. Like I find her sense of humor really funny.”

“The tweet said if Rihanna was in the Illuminati and she was down with Satan worshiping then couldn’t Satan have given her a better video than M.I.A.’s ‘Boyz’ video. It was actually a diss to me!”

In the same interview, M.I.A. also cleared up remarks she made about preferring Jay-Z over Nas, calling Justin Bieber’s video “offensive,” and having a showdown with Pharrell Williams.

Rihanna in 'Barbados land controversy'

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Politicans in Barbados have been criticised for giving Rihanna a free plot of land.

Minister of Housing and Lands Michael Lashley gave the singer the piece of real estate, located in Apes Hill, in appreciation for her work in boosting tourism to the nation, reports the Daily Star.

However, Government Minister Gline Clarke slammed Lashley's decision, saying that the land should have gone to poorer citizens in the area.

"Why is the government paying millions of dollars for land for someone who's already making millions?"
he said.

Rihanna has not commented on the matter.


Isaacs Training Hard For Lautner Fight Scene

JASON ISAACS has thrown himself into training ahead of a fight scene with TAYLOR LAUTNER in upcoming movie ABDUCTION - because he doesn't want the young actor to make him "look like an idiot".

The Harry Potter star begins filming the new thriller with the Twilight hunk later this month (Jun10) and he's worried because one scene will see him tackle the 18 year old in a boxing sequence.

And 47-year-old Isaacs admits he is working hard to get fit before he takes on the youngster onscreen.

Speaking at the Edinburgh International Film Festival, ahead of the screening of Skeletons, he tells WENN, "Next week I'm doing Abduction with Taylor Lautner... and I've been kickboxing every day... from seven o'clock in the morning... because I have to have a long boxing sequence and I don't want to look like an idiot.

"He (Lautner) has the most famous abs in the world and he's a fabulous actor but he's also got the body of almost every woman between 14 and 100's dreams. He's turned overnight as the object of lust for over half the planet. I'm very conscious of the fact because we have this extended fight sequence and it is one of the main things I do in the film and he will probably be really good at it.

"He's young and supple and electric in his body and I will be struggling."

Vogue Renounces Ke$ha and Katy Perry

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Vogue's July issue contains a fall fashion preview heralding the season's return to womanly, mature, minimalist clothes. The spread opens with this passage under the headline "I AM WOMAN":

Hear me roar. Hear me issue stock-purchase orders from the Wall Street trading floor. I am woman; I am not girl. I do not emulate the pop-burlesque fashion stylings of Ke$ha or Katy Perry. I do not aspire to PASSÉ MORNING-AFTER CHIC, with bird’s-nest hair and shredded leather leggings. No. Of Lana Turner and Barbara Stanwyck — and Lena Horne — I sing.

(Have you felt the smooth, snug tug of fine leather gloves being pulled on? Have you considered the REBELLION, the nonconformity, inherent today in a Marnie Eisenhower knit suit? Have you worn a crinoline lately?)

Reader, if you’re older than fourteen, fashion for fall 2010 offers more WEARABLE OPTIONS than it has in eons. Skirts fall below mid-thigh. Designers are giving us dead-cool-but-still-practical STREETWEAR UNIFORMS for work or school. Black-with-black is totally back.

Can we get an “Amen” up in here?

Might this be in response to Katy Perry getting the most attention for her outfit of anyone at the Met gala this year only because her dress lit up, and not because it was fashionable? Whatever the motivation, these are great reasons to be excited about dressing next season. Although Vogue using the phrase "up in here" is kind of a Ke$ha thing to do.

Lady Gaga's dad buys her bubbly at strip club

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Lady Gaga's dad bought her a $700 bottle of bubbly - at a strip club.

Joseph Germanotta phoned New York nightspot HeadQuarters and paid for the magnum of Laurent Perrier champagne by credit card for the Poker Face singer, real name Stefani Germanotta.

An insider told a US newspaper: 'The staff didn't believe at first it was Gaga's dad.

'They asked for his credit card number three times and Googled him before they took his order.'

A rep for Gaga, 24, was unavailable for comment.

She was partying at the club on Monday night - in a see-through jumpsuit, with strategically placed sequins covering her nipples and private parts.

'As The World Turns' Stops Production After 54 Years

The final cast photo.

You can view the clip on YouTube: Dr. Bob Hughes lunching with a fellow doctor in a scene aired live on "As the World Turns" the afternoon of Nov. 22, 1963.

"Shall we get a menu?" Hughes says to his dining companion. "Waiter! I'd like to order. I'm kind of hungry."

That scene was the last the TV audience would see of "As the World Turns" that day as CBS News seized the schedule for continuous coverage of President John Kennedy's assassination.

The young, dark-headed actor who played Dr. Bob, as well as the rest of the cast, completed the show shielded from both the fact of its pre-emption and the terrible reason why.

Only after the episode's final fade-out did they learn of the tragedy, as the actor portraying Dr. Bob, Don Hastings, recalled one day last week.

Now 76 and handsomely silver-haired, Hastings was in his dressing room between scenes at the Brooklyn studio the series has called home the past decade. He was still playing Dr. Bob – lately the head of Oakdale Memorial Hospital and, as always, endowed with a perfect bedside manner – just a few months shy of 50 years after landing the part.

But Hastings won't get to reach his half-century milestone in October. On Sept. 17, TV's oldest daytime drama (airing weekdays at 2 p.m. EDT until then) will fold.

On Wednesday, "ATWT" wrapped production forever.

Is Coming Out as a Bisexual in Hollywood Safer Than Just Saying You're Gay?

Singer Vanessa Carlton made headlines over the weekend by declaring to the crowd at the Nashville Pride concert that she is a proud bisexual woman. Carlton’s admission follows “True Blood” star Anna Paquin’s claim in a PSA that ran in April that she, too, is bisexual.

Is a bisexual confession simply a safe way for women to inch out of the closet? Is it a boon for the gay community? Or is it all a publicity stunt?

“Coming out as bisexual is a safe thing for a woman to do. For a woman to say she is bisexual today brings about as much stigma as saying she had braces as a child. Society has changed,” explains Michael Levine, Hollywood publicist and media expert. “In fact saying she is bisexual might even gain her some attention which will correlate to visibility for whatever she is working on.”

Bisexuality in Hollywood is a careful hedging of bets between appealing to a gay audience without alienating the heterosexual audience, say experts. Coming out as bisexual rather than gay may also be more palatable to an American male audience that finds something alluring about female bisexuality.

The-Dream Confirms Working on The Queen & Rihanna's Upcoming Albums

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Waiting for news on Beyonce’s new album came to a halt yesterday when super producer The Dream confirmed in a new interview that he’ll be going into the studio with Beyonce this year. With the phenomenal success of ‘Single Ladies’, he is hoping to recreate that same magic.

So what else are you working on and who else are you working with for the rest of the year?

The Dream:
“I’m working on a reality show, I’m working with this girl name Kasha who’s here today. We’ll probably get her album done within the week. Ciara’s already started on her project. You know, Rihanna, Beyonce, the same beautiful people every year. It’s a cycle. We’ve gotta get that money”.


I get you'd want to recreate the "magic" and have another guaranteed hit but The-Dream has been real hit and miss lately but I hope they experiment with other producers. But I'm sure whatever he makes will be good...at least for them.

Who would you like to see them work with?

Lake Bell Drops Out of Scream 4

Just four days before Wes Craven's upcoming Scream 4 was going to start shooting in Ann Arbor, Michigan, actress Lake Bell has had to drop out of the movie due to scheduling conflicts. Bell was going to play Deputy Judy Hicks, a police officer who knew Neve Campbell's Sidney from high school, a character described as "decidedly sexy but a bit off." (Shouldn't be hard to find another actress who fits that bill in Hollywood.)

As Bell posted on her Twitter feed last night:

Sucks: Scheduling conflicts with my current gig means I cant do #Scream4! (Hey horror bloggers, I know who the killer is...) #i'llnevertell

With shooting set to begin on Monday, expect another name to be attached to the role very quickly.


Megan Fox knows she hasn't proven acting skills

Megan Fox, the 'Jonah Hex' actress - who is engaged to actor Brian Austin Green - insists she would never complain about receiving more attention for her looks than her work as she has not yet given "any reason" to win praise for her movies.
She said:
"I'm totally aware that I've never given anyone a reason to praise me for my acting talents.
"So to sit here and complain, 'Why don't people recognise me as an actress?' would be outrageous.

She added to Sky Movies magazine:
"I could never be one of those actors who reads everything that is ever written about them.

"That doesn't work with my personality. I'd be a complete lunatic, probably drug-addled and out of my mind. Instead, I stay in and ignore it."


Mad Men creator not happy with how people watch his show

During Bing's Creative Panel at SoHo House, Matt Weiner, creator of Mad Men, ruefully brought up the fact that people were consuming his show on their phones:
I didn't design my work to be seen on a phone... that's three years of my life, and you watch it sort of disappear in ten seconds while you're sweating [on the treadmill].

Matt Weiner also ruffled a few feathers when he blasted multi-screen viewing with a rant about fans tweeting during his show:

The idea that you would want to write your own version of things while it's going on, or talk about it while it's going on, and have your iChat on this side [of the screen] and your porn on this side [of the screen] and the Mad Men in the middle, it's just like, 'don't watch it!' I'm going to come to your house and take away your TV!

He should be grateful people watch and like his show instead of bitching about how they watch it.

Fans Can Expect Lots of Skin – and Sex! – in Breaking Dawn

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Twilight films have been fairly tame when it comes to sex. But it sounds like Breaking Dawn will stay true to Stephenie Meyer's book, with especially racy scenes between leading lovers Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart.

"You will see sex – Yes!" Breaking Dawn and Twilight screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg told PEOPLE at the Eclipse premiere in L.A. Thursday night. "The relationship [between Pattinson's Edward and Stewart's Bella] does go all the way in the book, so in the movie, it will as well. You are going to see more skin in Breaking Dawn than you did in the other films."

But don't expect any XXX antics. "Will it be pornographic? – That, I do not know," Rosenberg said with a laugh. "I don't know if it has to be R-rated, but it has to be what the book is, which means more skin. ... I will definitely be writing more skin."

“I want Snooki to actually come onboard,” said Farley of her new fashion line, Filthy Couture, at the N.Y.C. premiere of Grown Ups on Wednesday. “I want to do sunglasses with her.” What will Snooki add to J-Woww’s new line? “Spunk,” said Farley, who donned a cleavage-friendly, sand-colored dress from the collection. “I’m a good designer, but she’s great with ideas. She tells me…and I can put them on paper.”

As for Snooki? “I’m very impressed with Jenni,” she said. “Her style is amazing. It’s very sexy, very sleek. I’m definitely going to wear her stuff.” And if Farley has her way, Snooki won’t be the only celeb donning Filthy Couture. “I would love to see Lady Gaga in one of my bathing suits,” she revealed. “I’d love to open PEOPLE magazine and see her in one of my bathing suits on the beach. That would be…like, it.”

The budding designer also had some style ideas for A-lister elites Jennifer Aniston and Angelina Jolie: “I’d put them in more like an evening gown…strapless, no rhinestones or crystals. They’re like glam…glam classic… you want to keep it like that.”

Peter Jackson Negotiating To Direct 'The Hobbit' Films

In what amounts to a dream come true for fans of Middle Earth, Peter Jackson has decided to direct two installments of The Hobbit, trusted sources are telling me. His deal is being negotiated right now with Warner Bros , New Line and MGM.

He will shortly take the reins over from Guillermo del Toro, after extricating himself from other project obligations that caused Jackson and manager Ken Kamins to initially deny he would be the director. While Jackson’s camp has been tight-lipped, I’m told that the case is being made to MGM's owners to loosen the purse strings and make the movies happen. The impetus for this talks is that Jackson will be the director of both of The Hobbit films, which will be shot back-to-back.

Ron Burkle buys 6% stake in American Apparel

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Cash-strapped clothing maker and retailer American Apparel Inc. got a boost from Los Angeles billionaire investor Ron Burkle, who disclosed Thursday that he had acquired a 6% stake in the company saddled by debt and weak sales over the last year.

According to a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission, Burkle reported he had purchased 4.3 million shares in the open market for $5.9 million between June 10 and Monday. The filing said Burkle made the purchase "because, in his opinion, such shares were undervalued."

Burkle is now the second-largest individual stakeholder in American Apparel, behind the company's flamboyant founder and chief executive, Dov Charney. Both Burkle and Charney declined to comment.

Known for its colorful T-shirts, leggings and racy advertisements, the company has seen its sales drop and its earnings plummet over the last year as competitors were seeing gains. It also grappled with a series of run-ins with authorities. U.S. immigration authorities last fall forced it to lay off about 1,500 employees from its downtown L.A. factory because they could not be legally documented.

The Queen of Rap Endorses Three Olives Vodka and New Single this Summer!!

YRB was invited to tag along on the set of a Three Olives vodka photo shoot this afternoon, where rapstress Lil' Kim posed with the new “Purple” line – the latest addition to the liquor's 18 signature flavors. Though we've got some nifty behind-the-scenes footage on the way, we got the opportunity to talk with the Queen Bee as she got primped and pampered, kicking back in a studio located in NYC's Meatpacking District.
In our exclusive interview, Kim chose not to speak on her recently publicized spar with a newcomer, but instead opted to talk about her love of all things Three Olives, her upcoming autobiography and why the Queen is about to reclaim her throne this summer with a new single on the way.

Five Reasons to Watch The IT Crowd Right Now

You best put seat belts on your ears, because I’m about to take them for the ride of their lives: British sitcom The IT Crowd has a fourth season hitting airwaves (and, presumably, Internet waves) today after a lengthy wait, and it’s going to be amazing. Not too long ago, we gave you six reasons to watch Starz’ Party Down, and another addition to your summer must-watch list is this deadpan geek-centric comedy. It takes place in the fictional Reynholm Industries, which does we-don’t-know-what and makes billions doing it. It revolves around the lives of the company’s three most down-trodden employees: the folks of the basement IT Department.

Jane Lynch Acts Happy Again

Jane Lynch returns to 'Party Down'

Viewers tuning in to tonight's season finale of "Party Down" on Starz will see something quite unusual: Jane Lynch playing an extremely happy character.

Through the first several episodes of last season, Lynch played Constance Carmell, a down-on-her-luck actress (much like the rest of the "Party Down" catering crew), who always saw the bright side of things, possibly to the point of self-delusion. Then, as the season was wrapping up, Lynch left to do a pilot for a little show called "Glee" - playing a very different character - and the rest is TV history.

Now Lynch is back as Constance, who has hired "Party Down" to cater her wedding to a 9-times-divorced, aging, ailing producer. Despite her former co-workers' concern about this marriage, she believes that the power of their love will triumph over all.


Since she's found a way to get out of the catering business, it gets Henry to thinking about going back to acting, and Ron to try to make things work with Danielle, his boss's daughter whom he met at the company picnic.

For anyone thinking that "Party Down" might have abandoned its dark comedy roots in what could end up being the series' final episode, don't worry - there's still plenty of misery to go around as the plot unfolds.

Regardless of what happens with "Party Down," this is not only a wrap-up of Constance's story arc, but it also marks Adam Scott's final episode as a series regular (you'll be able to see more of him on the equally-brilliant "Parks and Recreation" next season), and we get a little hint of what becomes of his character in the final moments. Ryan Hansen will also be in the NBC series "Friends with Benefits," so if the show does return, it will likely be down two regulars, but Scott has already said that he will return for a handful of episodes next season.

This show ends its second season as one of the most consistently funny on television, so I hope somehow it can find its way back on the air next year. "Glee" fans who haven't watched will certainly want to tune in to see a different side of Lynch.

Another round of pics taken around the set as season three of Merlin continues to be filmed. Again, nothing truly spoilery as such but will put these pics under the cut to make sure those who do not want anything known about season three will not get hurt feelings. Again, looks to be shaping up to be a better season than season two but then again they were hyping up season two as being awesome and it ended up imo being a jumbled mess.

Disney Party Post!

The Beauty and the Beast features have already been posted, but Fantasia hasn't.

At a press gathering in New York City earlier this week, Disney unveiled plans for some key upcoming Blu-ray titles, including their first Blu-ray 3D Disc, A Christmas Carol. But the news in 2D-land was just as exciting including with first ever high definition releases of two animated classics: Fantasia and Beauty and the Beast.

The Fantasia four-disc boxed set will contain a beautifully restored version of the 1940 classic--scanned at 4K and remixed for 7.1 channels--as well as Fantasia 2000, plus a platter of Blu-ray extras and a DVD copy of the film. Among the many special features will be an interactive edition of the fabled Shultheis Notebook, a priceless animators "bible" compiled over the career of one of Fantasia's key creators, and the first-ever home video release of Destino, Walt Disney's collaboration with Salvador Dali. Destino is backed by its own 70-minute documentary.

Kristen Stewart & Rob Pattinson "All Over Each Other", I care even less than I thought I would

Kristen Stewart and Rob Pattinson may have had separate tables at the official Eclipse afterparty downtown, but they couldn't keep their hands off each other a private bash later.

A source tells E! News that the undercover couple was "all over each other" while attending a rooftop party at the Thompson Hotel.

And we're talking full on PDA here, Twi-hards, not just hand-holding. "They were kissing, nuzzling, holding hands and embracing," the source tells us.

"He's so into her," says the insider. "The way he looks at her is so passionate."

As for K.Stew? She seemed to be loving the attention from Rob. "She was so smiley," says our source.

More platonic partygoers included Taylor Lautner and the rest of the cast, who entered the bash through the back entrance. This is the second year in a row they've celebrated at the hotel.

Bad Girls Club Miami marks the fifth season of the hit show. The 4th season gave Oxygen some of its highest ratings ever in the network’s history all thanks to Miss Natalie Nunn, pictured above.

Mo'Nique, Mulligan among Academy invitees

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has invited 135 filmmakers and executives -- including such recent Oscar nominees and winners as Vera Farmiga, Anna Kendrick, Mo'Nique, Carey Mulligan, Jeremy Renner, Gabourey Sidibe and Christoph Waltz -- to join its ranks.

The Academy issued its annual invitation list Thursday.

The actor's portion of the list ranged from genre favorites like "Saw's" Tobin Bell to "Avatar's" Zoe Saldana, from "Sopranos" star James Gandolfini, whose film credits include "In the Loop" and "Get Shorty" to rising leading man Ryan Reynolds, who's appeared in "The Proposal" and "X-Men Origins: Wolverine."

An international sampling of directors made the cut: Among them France's Jacques Audiard, Argentina's Juan Jose Campanella, Denmark's Lone Scherfig and, from the U.S., Lee Daniels and Adam Shankman, the latter of whom co-produced the last Oscar show.

Oscar nominee "District 9" was well represented: Matt Aitken and Dan Kaufman were invited to join the visual effects branch; Neill Blomkamp (who also directed the film) and Terri Tatchell were invited to join the writers branch.

Under its rules, the Academy could have invited as a maximum of 180 new members in 2010, but several branch committees endorsed fewer candidates than were proposed to them. Voting membership in the organization has now held steady at just under 6,000 members since 2003.

New members will be welcomed into the Academy at an invitation-only reception at the Academy's Fairbanks Center for Motion Picture Study in Beverly Hills in September.

The 2010 invitees follow:

Tobin Bell -- "Saw," "The Firm"
Vera Farmiga -- "Up in the Air," "The Departed"
Miguel Ferrer -- "Traffic," "RoboCop"
James Gandolfini -- "In the Loop," "Get Shorty"
Anna Kendrick -- "Up in the Air," "Twilight"
Mo'Nique -- "Precious: Based on the Novel 'Push' by Sapphire," "Phat Girlz"
Carey Mulligan -- "An Education," "Public Enemies"
Jeremy Renner -- "The Hurt Locker," "28 Weeks Later"
Ryan Reynolds -- "The Proposal," "X-Men Origins: Wolverine"
LaTanya Richardson Jackson -- "Mother and Child," "Losing Isaiah"
Peter Riegert -- "Traffic," "Crossing Delancey"
Sam Robards -- "A.I. Artificial Intelligence," "American Beauty"
Saoirse Ronan -- "The Lovely Bones," "Atonement"
Zoe Saldana -- "Avatar," "Star Trek"
Adam Sandler -- "Funny People," "Punch-Drunk Love"
Peter Sarsgaard -- "An Education," "Boys Don't Cry"
Gabourey Sidibe -- "Precious: Based on the Novel 'Push' by Sapphire"
Shaun Toub -- "Iron Man," "The Kite Runner"
Christoph Waltz -- "Inglourious Basterds"
George Wyner -- "A Serious Man," "American Pie 2"

'Eclipse' Star Anna Kendrick Wants Role In 'The Hobbit'

'I was and still am obsessed with 'Lord of the Rings,' actress reveals.

Anna Kendrick can completely relate to the throngs of "Twilight" fans who spent the last few days camped out outside the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles for the "Eclipse" premiere. In fact, there was a time in Kendrick's life when she did the same exact thing, except her object of devotion was a rock band. And then there's her whole "Lord of the Rings" obsession, too.

"I camped out to see the Strokes. I was obsessed with Julian Casablancas. I had a huge crush," the Oscar nominee revealed to MTV News about her fandom at the "Eclipse" premiere. "And I was and still am obsessed with 'Lord of the Rings.' I do an annual marathon of the extended editions. It's hard-core."

While plans for a Strokes biopic have yet to be announced, it seems that Kendrick can at least live out her "Lord of the Rings" fantasies in the soon-to-be-made "Hobbit" flick. "Believe me! I spend many nights wondering that!" she explained. "This is officially my feeler."

So would she be up for playing Bilbo Baggins, originally played by Ian Holm? "Cate Blanchett did it!" she laughed, referring to the actress' role in "I'm Not There." "She was Bob Dylan!"

Of course the night's big topic was "Eclipse" and its killer music. "I'm blown away by the soundtrack. And Metric's one of my favorites," she said of the band, which has a song on the soundtrack. Luckily Kendrick will have more than one chance to hear them. "Metric does tracks for 'Scott Pilgrim' too, so I'm feeling awesome about summer movies."

Scarlett is pissed!

Scarlett Johansson slams Tony award critics

Hollywood star Scarlett Johansson has shot back at critics who have argued that the actress is undeserving of a Tony Award for her role in Broadway's A View From the Bridge.

"I pounded the pavement for years and I know what it's like to struggle as an actor. A lot of it is luck and, certainly, a lot of it is opportunity - and the lack of that. So, I totally understand the frustration there," said Johansson.

The 25-year-old actress' win last week prompted fellow Broadway star Hunter Foster to start a Facebook campaign, 'Give The Tonys Back To Broadway', reported Us magazine.

Foster believes Johansson's Hollywood status was the main reason behind her victory earlier this month, preventing Broadway veterans from taking home a trophy.

"The actors we've seen this season that we recognise from film - Denzel Washington, Viola Davis, Liev Schreiber and Catherine Zeta-Jones - have not only made a huge impact on ticket sales but have given tour de force performances and all started their careers as stage actors, dedicating themselves to making an impression in the theatre," Johansson argued.

"This goes to show that actors are actors, whatever the outlet, and with perseverance and drive, can cross the boundaries of the medium," she added.

Why This Summer's Movies Are A Bust And How To Fix It Next Time

It's no secret that, up until the release of Toy Story 3 last weekend, the summer of 2010 had been a massive disappointment. Box office totals are down and suddenly, spending time in the summer sunshine seems far more appealing that lining up to sit inside a crowded movie theater. People aren't showing up for what Hollywood has to offer and critics seem to loathe this summer mess even more than usual.

This summer's been a mess and we think we know why. There are lessons to be learned here. More importantly we want to keep it from happening again. Summer's movie going is supposed to be fun, and before we have to sit through another one like this one, we're hoping Hollywood will take our advice on how to do it right. We know why this summer's movies are a bust, and here's how to fix it next time.

Bill Clinton Wants a Vuvuzela, Decides To See Team USA Once More, Remains a PIMP

Touting a future U.S. World Cup, it's Bill Clinton's excellent adventure
JOHANNESBURG -- He marveled at the way the U.S. soccer team never got discouraged but only redoubled its efforts after shot upon shot was denied by bad luck and Algeria's formidable goalkeeper.

He screamed so loud when Landon Donovan scored the late goal that kept the United States' World Cup dream alive that he had to drink hot tea with honey for an hour just to get his voice back.

And Thursday morning, he asked where he could buy a vuvuzela. The incessant buzz annoyed him when he watched the U.S. team's opener against England on TV. But after hearing the horns in person at Pretoria's Loftus Versfeld Stadium, he was intrigued by the rhythmic riffs that seem to spring up organically from the crowd -- as anyone who has ever played a saxophone would be.

Former president Bill Clinton had such an excellent outing at Wednesday's U.S-Algeria match that he rearranged his schedule so he'll be able to get to Rustenburg for Saturday's round-of-16 showdown against Ghana.

Basically Bill is crushing on the team like everyone else is and he can't get enough of them.

Prince Albert of Monaco is Finally Engaged!

It's been a really busy week in royal wedding news. First, Princess Victoria of Sweden wed her commoner love, Daniel Westling, in a lavish $2.5 million dollar ceremony. And, now, perpetual bachelor Prince Albert of Monaco, 52, has announced that he's engaged for the first time to a pretty, 32-year-old blonde from South Africa named Charlene Wittstock. Prince Albert and Charlene, who looks a little like Albert's mother Grace Kelly, even attended Princess Victoria's wedding together.

According to Celebitchy.com, the Prince, who is the royal head of Monaco, a tiny principality in the south of France, was thought by many that he would never get married or produce a legitimate heir. (He has produced several illegtimate children, however: a toddler son whose mother is an African flight attendant and an 18-year-old daughter who lives in California.)

However, now that he's finally getting married, it's likely that there will soon be an official little Prince or Princess of Monaco running around the pink palace, and that his 26-year-old nephew, Princess Caroline's son Andrea Casiraghi, will not inherit the throne, as many expected.

Albert and Charlene have reportedly been dating since 2006. The prince told French newspaper Nice-Matin that "the marriage will take place next summer."

Sources told People magazine Thursday that the couple will tie the knot in two ceremonies: an intimate civil service inside the Prince's 235-room palace, and a larger, religious one, in Monaco's Notre Dame of the Immaculate Conception Cathedral, which will be televised.

Charlene has been given the thumbs-up by both of Albert's sisters, Priness Caroline and Princess Stephanie, who have been tutoring her in royal protocol.

It looks like we will soon be treated to another European royal wedding. Now, if only Prince William and Kate Middleton would step up to the plate.

Elin Nordegren set to pocket $750 million in divorce settlement

Tiger Woods’ estranged wife is set to pocket a staggering $750 million in a divorce settlement that is about to become official, according to US reports.

Elin Nordegren will bag the massive sum but the mother of Tiger’s two children will be banned from signing book deals or giving interviews about the breakdown of their five-year marriage.

Lawyers for the pair, whose marriage was shattered by Woods’ adulterous behaviour, are making last-minute adjustments to the agreement before each party signs on the dotted line.

“They’ve agreed on all the major points,” a source told Radaronline.com. “It’s all been worked out privately. Both Tiger and Elin are now very close to finishing the negotiations and filing and signing all the paperwork.”

It is not known how the estranged couple’s many assets will be divided up - or what custody arrangements will be put in place for their children, three-year-old Sam and Charlie, 18 months.

However, it is understood that Elin, a swimwear model, is seeking full custody of the toddlers.

“When they first started negotiating the divorce, it was all very acrimonious,” the source added. “Elin had a lawyer in California, who was very, very aggressive.”

Tensions reportedly calmed down after blonde Elin switched attorneys, according to the website.

“Things are now very civil between Tiger and Elin – at least in terms of getting the divorce taken care of,” added the source.

Sorry Twitards+ SMeyer, Guess You Can't Ride TheForbidden Forest

Harry Potter Fans Deemed Too Heavy for 'Wizarding World' Ride
Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Most people remember the feeling of not being tall enough to ride an amusement park ride, but some would-be riders of the signature attraction at Universal Studios' new "Wizarding World of Harry Potter" theme park in Orlando are being turned away because of their girth. The ride, "Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey," employs individual restraints to keep each guest tucked in to his or her seat, but the restraints aren't large enough to accommodate heavier riders.

Universal seems to have anticipated this issue, stationing staff "wizards" and test-seats along the line and at the entrance to Forbidden Journey. Riders test their ability to fit in the seats, as well as the restraint (which must click three times to be deemed safe and for the potential rider to be allowed into the attraction).

One Harry Potter fan, Jeff Guillaume of Lansing, Michigan, expressed disappointment on his "Harry Potter" fan site after he failed the test. Guillaume is 5'8" and weighs 265 pounds, and says the restraint wouldn't fit over his torso, though he reports that other rides at the park have special cars reserved for bigger riders.

Kim Zolciak's take on Danielle Staub's new song

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
The Real Housewife of New Jersey Danielle Staub performed her first single Real Close on Bravo's Watch What Happen Next with lesbian musician Lori Michaels and In Touch is the first to have Kim Zolciak's reaction.

The Real Housewife of Atlanta beauty reveals to In Touch: "I was quite surprised that she could sing and she sang great live. More power to her, I hope it does well." The Tardy For The Party hit maker isn't about to give up her spotlight though, "I am working on the rest of my album and I feel blessed to have another cast member/friend helping me. Kandi Burruss is truly talented and I'm glad to have been the first housewife to start this trend of becoming a singer. I think they should have a new show called "Housewife Idol".

When asked about her reaction to Danielle getting cozy with her rumored girlfriend, Lori Michaels, during her performance, Zolciak says, "I hope that what they have, if they have anything is real, and that she isn't playing gay to get attention."

According to multiple sources, Brown -- who is not billed to appear -- will perform at least one song ... it's unclear if it's an original or if he'll cover an MJ classic.

As we first reported, the unauthorized "Forever Michael" memorial -- scheduled to go down at the Beverly Hilton -- was never approved by the Jackson estate ... yet for some strange reason, Katherine Jackson has given promoters her blessing.

more on the epic event:

The Jackson Family Foundation is scheduled to commemorate the one-year anniversary of Michael Jackson's passing with "Forever Michael," a red carpet event that will unite "family members, celebrities, fans, supporters and the community to celebrate and honor his legacy,"
according to Michael's official site. The event will take place on June 26th, one day after the year anniversary of the King of Pop's death, at Los Angeles' Beverly Hills Hilton</b>. Tickets for the Forever Michael celebration are currently on sale at the website of Voiceplate productions, who are organizing the event along with the Jackson Family Foundation.

EDIT: I should clarify that by "censored," I mean that a lyric has been changed for this performance. I don't know why it was changed, so I just call it a censor because that's the only reason that makes sense. She didn't really say anything "bad" in the original.

Mad Irrelevant Admirer: "no comment" on Gaga's new album

If Lady Gaga isn't stumbling, literally, she's landing in more than a few predicaments these days. Her clashes with Katy Perry and Jerry Seinfeld are all pretty nasty developments for the über-popular pop star.

And one of the spicier feuds the feisty Lady is having is with none other than controversial singer-rapper M.I.A. The "Paper Planes" singer took the first shot when she spoke out against Gaga, saying she was "not progressive" and "a good mimic." So now that Gaga's announced her new album will be all about gays in the military, is that progressive enough? We asked M.I.A., who wore orange lipstick and double denim to Tuesday's Nylon party, and she gave an interesting answer...

"No comment."

Now, there are all sorts of things to read into this, but M.I.A. definitely had to know she'd be asked about it when she attended the bash at Skybar in L.A. Why so hush-hush? She isn't one to shy away from controversial comments. Is she backing off? Either that or she's changing her tune... Still, before we mentioned the Lady's name, M.I.A. was clearly about pushing her renegade campaign: "You've got to be relevant to what's going on today, and not all thought-out like that, you know? As long you keep it reflective and honest about what's really going on. It's cool."

So is M.I.A. not digging Gaga's new album, or deep down, is she? Since, you know, an album devoted to don't-ask, don't-tell is pretty damn reflective, isn't it?
