Haha! This was funny. Oprah was such a good sport to do this... after last night's Oscars ceremony. Wait until you get to the "Oprah After Dark" segment. Absolutely hilarious. And "Book Club Fight Club;" Oprah... I hardly knew you :)

I'm sure everyone's heard the news by now, so I won't offer much commentary. Viola Davis lost, Octavia Spencer won. And that just about wraps it up for last year's most polarizing film, The Help.

Riri? Really? So, according to this DailyMail.co.uk article, R&B/Pop songstress Rihanna and Jennifer Hudson are on the shortlist to portray Whitney Houston on the film biopic we've been talking about here a lot lately. We last posted about Meagan Good expressing her desire to play the late icon. Good's name however was nowhere among the actresses/singers being considered. Apparently Clive Davis wants to get the ball rolling and begin filming soon; he wants the script finalized pronto.

Well they had to eventually discover it sooner or later; but now that they have, all is right with the world. I'm referring to the Sunday New York Times article today about the Nigerian film industry and the Times' surprise that they've gone movie crazy over there.

Well another Tyler Perry movie is out and and there will be, of course,  his usual supporters and naysayers arguing over the merits or lack thereof of his movies (And for the record let me say that I think he's a bad filmmaker.
