My Academy Awards predictions — and honestly, why not start now, a month before the nominations are announced? — carry an odor akin to Paul Rudd's cologne in "Anchorman": 60 percent of the time, they're right every time. This week the awards...

With a conspicuous diss of Kathryn Bigelow, the un-nominated director of “Zero Dark Thirty,” the Academy Awards nominations were announced Thursday morning. “Zero Dark Thirty” was one of nine films given the best picture...
The nominees for the 70th annual Golden Globe Awards were announced Thursday by Jessica Alba, Megan Fox and Ed Helms. Steven Spielberg's epic on the 16th president, "Lincoln," stood out in the film categories with seven Golden Globe nominations, followed...
