The Bachelor is becoming...A VIDEOGAME!!! Um Hmmm, this summer, you can buy it for Wii and DS – K, let’s say you want to go after Jason Mesnick- done. You can play alone (creepy) OR you can battle your BFF’s – try to sabotage them for one on one time to see who gets the final rose.


There have been 81 other Oscar ceremonies – that’s 14,850 hrs of TV.

Sunday, Steve Martin and Alec Baldwin will host. Front runners are Avatar and The Hurt Locker. Do you think the 6000 snooty snoot voting members will give it to Avatar because it’s changed the creative landscape of movies forever?

The front runners for the best-picture Oscar remain JAMES CAMERON's Avatar and the war drama The Hurt Locker, which was directed by Cameron's ex-wife, KATHRYN BIGELOW. Both films have plenty of competition in that category, since it has been expanded to 10 nominees.

The other best-picture nominees are The Blind Side, District 9, An Education, Inglourious Basterds, Precious: Based on the Novel "Push" by Sapphire, A Serious Man, Up, and Up in the Air.

Crazy Heart star JEFF BRIDGES is a popular pick for best actor. The category also includes Up in the Air actor GEORGE CLOONEY, Invictus star MORGAN FREEMAN, The Hurt Locker's JEREMY RENNER, and A Single Man's COLIN FIRTH.

SANDRA BULLOCK is the clear favorite to collect the best-actress Oscar for The Blind Side, though awards show expert TOM O'NEIL believes she's "vulnerable" because of what he describes as her "lightweight" performance. She'll contend with heavyweight competition from Julie & Julia star MERYL STREEP, Precious actress GABOUREY SIDIBE, The Last Station actress HELEN MIRREN, and An Education's CAREY MULLIGAN.

Kathryn Bigelow and Precious director LEE DANIELS both stand to make history in the best-director category. If Bigelow's name is called, she'd become the first woman to win the honor. Similarly, Daniels has a chance to become the first African-American to claim the prize. James Cameron, who won in 1998 for Titanic, is also a nominee for best director.


Tonight there’s a new show starting called Who Do You Think You Are? It’s not about people trying to pick fights, it’s actually a show that’s been on in the UK for 7 years, and now in the US. Stars like Sarah Jessica Parker, NFL legend Emmitt Smith and Lisa Kudrow find out all about their family trees. Secrets, skeletons in the closet – Ok- let’s try one episode…


Alice in Wonderland -- Director TIM BURTON's 3-D fantasy is essentially a follow-up to the classic LEWIS CARROLL story. Here's the story- Alice is now 19 years old and is reunited with the Mad Hatter, the Cheshire Cat, and the other characters she first met when she fell down the rabbit hole as a kid.

The film is Burton's seventh collaboration with JOHNNY DEPP, who plays the Mad Hatter. ANNE HATHAWAY, HELENA BONHAM CARTER and CRISPIN GLOVER also star. Rated PG.
