"The King's Speech" sits on the throne this morning, earning 12 Oscar nominations and looking like the film to beat at the 83rd Academy Awards, while "True Grit" follows with 10 nods and "The Social Network" with 8. Not much in the way of shockers this year, but some pleasant surprises in the mix as well as few snubs.

Michael Fassbender & Kevin Bacon Talk Shop; Also, Jennifer Lawrence Is All Kinds Of AwesomeTalk about dominating the news cycle: after months of relative inactivity, the 20th Century Fox promotional machine went into full gear yesterday -- perhaps a bit before was originally intended -- in support of the still-filming "X-Men: First Class," with set visits, official stills and a poster all hitting the net, hot on the heels of the underwhelming first look at the cast in full costume/make-up. Now, some of the members of the cast have been talking about the film as well, with Michael Fassbender (Magneto), Kevin Bacon (villain Sebastian Shaw) and Jennifer Lawrence (Mystique) all discussing the film with various outlets.

Director Matthew Vaughn Says He's Never Felt This Much "Pressure" On Making A MovieOK, this is muuuuuch better. Recent photos of Matthew Vaughn's "X-Men: First Class" leaked on the Internet with the cast in costume and well, they essentially looked like cast off test images from Brett Ratner's "X-Men: The Last Stand" -- definitely not anyone's favorite of the "X-Men" franchise. Heralded as a back-to-basics prequel set in the '60s, the leaked image -- apparently it wasn't ready for public consumption, but once it's out it's out -- seemed to be antithetical to the idea of a group of mutants first finding one another and eventually becoming part of a school of mutants and then a super hero team.

Lautner Also Attached To 'Bourne'-Esque Spy Vehicle With filming now underway on the final "Twilight" movie, the two-part werewolf-falls-in-love-with-a-baby extravaganza that is "Breaking Dawn," the franchise's three leads are starting to look to their careers beyond the confines of Forks, Washington. Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart are, to their credit, trying to work with top talent on high-class projects, with the former signing last week to star in David Cronenberg's "Cosmopolis," while the latter will appear, most likely looking bored and sleepy, in Walter Salles' adaptation of Jack Kerouac's "On The Road" later in the year.

New Production Photo & Official Synopsis ReleasedCall it the car crash factor, but despite Mel Gibson's misogynistic, racist, sexist and violent ramblings, the curiosity surrounding his role in Jodie Foster's "The Beaver" is huge. And while the status of the film was unknown in the wake of tapes of his psychotic outbursts, it looks like enough distance has been settled that Summit Entertainment is confident enough to put the film into theatres.
