Entertainment Link-Off: Back To Normal

G’day everyone! After a two month hiatus, I am back! I hope Steve didn’t scare anyone off while I was gone. Wait!!! Come back!!! Nooo!!! Dammit. Oh well, let’s kick off this Entertainment Link-Off with Kristin Kreuk. The former Smallville leading lady is now appearing on Chuck as a fellow Nerd Herder Hannah. Since she was recently cast in another Josh Schwartz pilot Hitched, don’t expect her to stick around Chuck for much longer. Let’s just enjoy her presence on the show while we can.

After the jump, a few tidbits on the Oscars, a look at some upcoming TV pilots and a behind the scenes look at ChatRoulette, the latest fad in social networking. Continue reading

Entertainment Link-Off: And The Nominees Are…

It has nothing to do with movies but I think Katy Perry had to have been nominated for a Grammy.

The Oscar nominations were announced this week. To no one’s surprise, it was Avatar that led the way. (New York Times)

But the Oscars bore more than paint drying. No, the real money is at the Razzies. Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, which is Jackie’s favourite movie of all time, led the way there. (Daily Telegraph)

And it’s the best of the worst movies of all-time. Despite the love for Up in the Air, George Clooney’s turn as Batman is hated worse than Ben Mulroney. (CBC)

After the jump, something, something else, and it’s John Cleese Idol with Ben Mulroney. Continue reading

Entertainment Link-Off: Be A Nerd, Join the Herd

This weekend marks the return of one of the best shows on network TV right now. Chuck premieres tomorrow night with 2 back to back new episodes followed by another new episode in its regular timeslot on Monday at 8 pm on NBC (CityTV in Canada). To celebrate this special occasion, here’s Yvonne Strahovski.

This post also marks my last Entertainment Link-Off before going on a 2 month hiatus. I can only assume that Steve is taking over, so he’ll keep you company for a little while.

After the jump Jay Leno’s in trouble at NBC, some more Avatar links, my own list of top 10 films of 2009 and Michael Cera shows some ‘range’ in his acting. Continue reading

The Lowdown Liveblogs The Oscars!

Tonight is the big night in the world of entertainment but we all know how the Oscars is going to be a huge snorefest. To liven things up, I’ll be posting some random tidbits during this uber long award show.

Let’s kick things off with the Razzie winners! Looks like Mike Myers is the big winner this year! The Love Guru was a piece of crap movie. Sorry Mike, you’re no longer a comic genius. Another big winner is Paris Hilton for worst actress! Wait a second. Have the critics not seen One Night in Paris???

Speaking of Razzies, it seems like the new Street Fighter movie will be a contender next year. Poor Michael Clarke Duncan… why is he being casted in crapfests like these? He deserves better. Variety

8:30 pm: Hugh Jackman off to a decent start. I guess the guy can be funny. The dude has earned his fees. He did manage to make a plug for the big budget flop ‘Australia’… even though it was in a self-depreciating way. Continue reading
