If it ain't broke, don't fix it. With "Bridesmaids" arriving in theaters on May 13th last year and becoming one of the biggest comedies of 2011, and suprisingly, an awards season player, Universal isn't rocking the boat with the next big Melissa McCarthy comedy.

With Paul Weitz's "Being Flynn" beginning its limited rollout in theaters this weekend, the helmer isn't wasting any time getting to this next pic. The project, titled "Admission," has been brewing for over a year now, with Tina Fey attached to star, and it was just over a week ago that the director said he still intends to make it his next film. And it seems the wheels are starting to turn.

Let the record show, Werner Herzog is the best when it comes to choosing music--after all, he said so last night. Talking to a completely full room at the Brooklyn Academy of Music's Rose Theater after a screening of "The White Diamond," Herzog mulled over opera and working with musicians, and briefly entertained a Nicholas Cage question over an hour-and-a-half dialogue with moderator Paul Holdengräber, director of LIVE of the New York Public Library.

Well, the cameras are now rolling on Kathryn Bigelow's upcoming film in India, and the picture is already gaining controversy. Of course, there is still that ongoing (and pointless) Pentagon investigation about whether or not Bigelow and screenwriter Mark Boal were leaked classified documents, but now a different kind of concern has hit the production.

When it came to our super-early Oscar predictions last year, we weren't too far off when it came to Best Picture, or even the lead acting categories. But Supporting Actor & Actress? That was something of a disaster. Ok, so we called Christopher Plummer's victory, but aside from that, we were way off.

Remember That Paul Potts Biopic? Harvey Weinstein Wants Katy Perry Or Adele To Play His Wife

Does anyone still listen to Paul Potts? In case you forgot, he made a brief cultural splash a few years ago when he showed up on "Britain's Got Talent" and wowed audiences Susan Boyle-style, leading to a brief run of concerts and fame, before everyone moved to something else. But a movie about his life was in the works anyway, and the last we heard about it was all the way back in the fall of 2010, when "The Devil Wears Prada" director David Frankel was attached to direct. Well, belive it or not, this thing is still happening.

At the Academy Awards, Best Picture might be the big prize, but the ones that both the winners and the audience have the most emotional connection to tend to be the acting prizes. Seeing a beloved star, or a fresh-faced newcomer, finally pick up a statue more often than not ends up leading the mainstream media coverage; it's always more moving than some producer's acceptance speech.

Watch: Hilarity Ensues In The First Trailer For 'In The Loop' Writer-Director Armando Ianucci's HBO Series 'Veep'

Anyone remember the 2009 political-satire "In The Loop"? The film was a festival hit and featured a side-splitting performance from Peter Capaldi as political hot-shot Malcolm Tucker. That film was, in fact, a spin off original BBC show "The Thick Of It" -- both of which are the brainchild of Armando Ianucci. Attempts had been to remake the show for HBO and while there was a pilot shot, it was one Ianucci wasn't a fan of and was never picked up.
