    Just when you thought awards season was over, three more shows come along in one weekend: The ACMAs, the Kid's Choice Awards… and of course, the almighty Razzie Awards. With all of the pomp and circumstance surrounding most show biz awards ceremonies, it's nice to have something to remind us that at times, show biz is RIDICULOUS and that not everything that comes out of Hollywood is all rainbows and kittens and wonderfulness. And lucky us, the results of the 32nd Annual Golden Raspberry Awards are in!

    At the end of February, Adam Sandler made Razzie Awards history when he and his movies were nominated for a whopping 11 awards. This is especially impressive when you consider that there are only 10 Razzie Award categories. You know what that means, right? Yep: He was nominated not once, but TWICE in one category. For the curious,

  • Ashton Kutcher to Play Steve Jobs in Indie Biopic (Wait, What?)

    It's true: Ashton Kutcher is attached to play Steve Jobs in an indie biopic. Good idea? Or terrible one?

    Ashton KutcherAshton Kutcher

    Well, this is interesting: According to Variety, Ashton Kutcher is currently attached to play Apple genius Steve Jobs in the upcoming indie biopic Jobs.

    Did your brain just explode a little bit? Because mine sure did.

    Anytime a major game changer or innovator passes away, everyone immediately jumps on the biopic bandwagon, and Steve Jobs' passing in October is no exception. Jobs, which will be directed by Swing Vote's Joshua Michael Stern and written by Matt Whiteley, will track Jobs from his beginnings as a "wayward hippie" (says Variety, at least) all the through his time as co-founder of Apple. It's scheduled to start production in May while Ashton is on hiatus from Two and a Half Men.

    My take on it? I often feel rather conflicted about Ashton (which is probably why I'm not wild about the idea of sending him to space). He

  • 6 Tips on How to Find a Plastic Surgeon

    If you're considering plastic surgery, do your homework before you get a procedure done.

    Maybe you've decided to get liposuction for your thighs, or maybe you've decided to correct a deviated septum, or fix something else that's been on your mind for a while. Of course if you're going to have any work done, as the cool kids say, you're going to have it done by a plastic surgeon. Every once in awhile there's a horror story or three in the news about people pretending to be plastic surgeons or doctors who claim they're a plastic surgeon and it turns out they're really a dentist. They get jail time and their patients have to endure painful reconstructive surgery. How do make sure you've got someone who's competent and good at their job? Research! Do lots of research before you even meet the doctor.

    Dr. Adam D. Schaffner is a New York City based plastic surgeon who's been interviewed by CBS's Good Morning America, The CBS Evening News and is one

    Are Michelle Williams and Jason Segel an item? Maybe-and we think that's terrific!

    Do these pictures make anyone else go "Awwwwww!"? Because I'm "Awwwwww!"-ing like crazy right now. Awwwwww!

    Yesterday, Us Weekly published three adorable photos of Michelle Williams, Jason Segel, and Michelle's 6-year-old daughter Matilda Rose hanging out recently-and since Michelle and Jason look oh so very cozy together, the accompanying article naturally declared that the two are now a couple. Apparently they've been friends for years, having first been introduced through Michelle's "BFF" and Segel's Freaks and Geeks costar Busy Philipps; the relationship, however, only recently turned tomantic. "They are smitten and very serious," a source told the mag.

Here, check it out.

    Genius? Genius. Anchorman 2 has been a long time coming; though it was announced in 2008 that a sequel was in the works , by 2010, it had apparently been scrapped .

    Have you ever wondered what the casts of shows like Mad Men and Downton Abbey would be-if they were dogs? I can't say that I have, but now that I've found out, it seems impossible that I would ever NOT want to know. Because it's HILARIOUS.

    According to Dogster, Vizslas are attractive, active, and cunning; they have a strong survival instinct, but they get bored with repetitive exercises and they ignore commands if they find something they think is more interesting. Hello, Don Draper!
