So, Natalie Portman took home Best Actress at the Golden Globes last night but her most lasting impression may be the cringeworthy acceptance speech capped off the dorkiest laugh ever. Sorry, Brendan Fraser, your amazing clap has been dethroned. But onwards and upwards -- the actress has a new movie opening Friday, the friends with benefits comedy "No Strings Attached" with Ashton Kutcher.

So, Natalie Portman took home Best Actress at the Golden Globes last night but her most lasting impression may be the cringeworthy acceptance speech capped off the dorkiest laugh ever. Sorry, Brendan Fraser, your amazing clap has been dethroned. But onwards and upwards -- the actress has a new movie opening Friday, the friends with benefits comedy "No Strings Attached" with Ashton Kutcher.

Details on the soundtrack for the film have arrived and they're....interesting. Hipster faves like Bishop Allen and Mark Ronson are found alongside the smoothest man alive D'Angelo, and constant soundtrack contributor Leona Lewis. The Plain White T's deliver a song that thankfully isn't "Hey There Delilah" while some dude named Hugo serves up an unbelievably awful cover of Jay-Z's "99 Problems." But perhaps the most headscratching inclusion is "I Wanna Sex You Up" by Color Me Badd. We presume it's being used over some ironic opening montage. We're not laughing already!

The soundtrack hits iTunes tomorrow, January 18th while the film will arrive in theaters on January 21st. Full tracklisting below. [Facebook]
