Charlie Sheen’s Sad Situation

Charlie Sheen should be on the top of the world. He is currently the highest paid actor on television, and his show is the top rated comedy series on the air.  However, his own personal demons seem constantly bring the talented star down.  Last week he was rushed to the hospital for abdominal pain after his neighbor, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Adrienne Maloof called 911 on his behalf.  He was released after being treated for a hernia, but then checked into rehab.  Now, TMZ is reporting that before the 911 call, Sheen was partying for over a full day with porn stars, drugs, and alcohol.  CBS has placed Sheen’s series, Two and a Half Men on hiatus.

Academy Award Nominations: Who Did Oscar Snub?

It’s inevitable. Every year after the Oscar nominations are announced, people scratch their heads over how some people got nominated while others were left out – and this year is no exception.  Below are five people that I think should have been nominated, but were not (even if I didn’t predict they would in the first place!)

Christopher Nolan

Inception was one of the best movies of the year and, while it got a nod for Best Picture, it’s director Christopher Nolan was left without a nomination. Did this movie direct itself?

 

Mark Wahlberg

Mark Wahlberg lived and breathed The Fighter during his years-long effort to get the film made.  Regardless of the fact that practically everyone in the cast is nominated for Academy Awards, lead actor Wahlberg wasn’t recognized with a nomination for himself.

 

Mila Kunis

Natalie Portman did an exceptional job in The Black Swan, but Mila Kunis, as her nemesis in the film, went toe to toe with Portman in scene after scene and never missed a beat.  How the Academy forgot about her is obvious – she’s known primarily as a television actress – but that doesn’t make it right.

 

Ryan Gosling

The always dependable Ryan Gosling is no stranger to the Oscars, and that’s why his absence on the Best Actor list for his role in Blue Valentine is particularly odd.

 

The Town

The Town is on just about every movie critic’s list of top ten films of 2010. And that is why is it so amazing that it didn’t get a Best Picture nod from the Academy – especially now that there are ten films nominated.

East Coast Pounded With More Snow

EarthCam.com's view of Broadway this morning

Another storm blew through through the Northeast last night, blanketing the region with even more snow.  19 inches fell in New York City’s Central Park, 14.9 inches accumulated in Philadelphia, and about a foot of the white stuff wound up in the Boston area. And this was the winter that we were supposed to catch a break…

 

British Soldier Proposes to Girlfriend Over Voicemail – But Dials WRONG Number

A British soldier stationed in Afghanistan left an emotional ninety-second voicemail to his pregnant girlfriend back home – but he dialed the wrong number.  Now, the search is on to find him as well as  “Amanda” – the woman he refers to in his message.

The full transcript of the message is below:

“Hi baby, it’s me. I’m sorry I couldn’t call you last month but you know what it’s like out here. I should be back in three months so we can be together then.

“One of my guys has just been blown up so I feel sad. I really feed sad.

“I feel so sad that I didn’t get to speak to you just now, but I’ll speak to you next month.

“Don’t ever forget I love you. I love you so much, I love you with all my heart and I was going to ask you… don’t answer… obviously you can’t answer. But, will you marry me?

“I love you and I’m really sad I didn’t get chance to speak to you today but you know I love you, don’t you? I love you with all my heart.

“I don’t know what to say babes. I can’t wait till you give birth to my baby, my little soldier. I’ll do everything in my heart and I’ll try my hardest to fight to protect you.

“I love you with all my heart. Don’t ever forget that. I love you alright Samantha? I love you. Bye bye.”
