December is here, and with that comes Award Season. With the Spirit Awards and Grammy Awards both announcing nominations earlier this week, we’re definitely in full swing of this jam-packed season. One of the early Oscar predictors is the National Board of Review Awards. The winners are chosen by film enthusiasts, academics, film professionals and students. The NBR is typically the first to announce its annual film honors.

Though the ceremony recognizing the winners won’t be held til January 11, 2011 in New York City at a gala hosted by Meredith Viera, the winners were announced Thursday. Winning top honors at this year’s awards is “the social network” as Best Film of 2010. It also picked up three major awards with Jesse Eisenberg earning Best Actor honors, Aaron Sorkin for Best Adapted Screenplay and David Fincher as Best Director. By winning so many awards, the Facebook movie is sending a strong message they’re a clear front-runner at this year’s upcoming Golden Globes and Academy Awards ceremony.

If you read my recaps of So You Think You Can Dance Canada this season, you’ll recognize these two dancers. Nathalie Heath and Mackenzie Green made it all the way to the Top 8 this season but were cut in a shocking four dancer elimination before the Top 4 Finale show. After working with Nathalie on an episode of Hellcats, I asked if her and Mackenzie would like to come over and chat a bit about their experience on the show and their future endeavours and they did.

Before an evening of working with a local dance company called Source, the two took time to sit on our couch and discuss the entire experience that is So You Think You Can Dance. Both had auditioned for the show previously. Mackenzie was on his second round and Nathalie was making her third time a charm. After a gruelling week at Toronto Finals, Mackenzie was in right away but Nathalie had to face the judges most shocking moment of the season when Nathalie wasn’t chosen for the Top 20 but was one of the dancers (along with Jonathan) to be a part of the show’s first ever Top 22.

Okay, so here we go on the usual dragged on two part season finale of The Apprentice. Last week, Steuart was fired and Clint, Brandy and Liza remain. It’s not even a question that Liza is going home when they go in to face Mr. Trump at the beginning of the episode. Brandy makes a very compelling speech, outlining her education, drive, and track record. Then Clint says that essentially says he’s a “CEO in a box”, while Liza feels like she should be in the finals because of what it would do for her career. Sorry, Liza…Mr. Trump doesn’t give sympathy votes. Liza…You’re fired. Either Clint or Brandy will now be The Apprentice.

Meeting on a golf course, Trump gives Brandy the option to either choose the team or choose the task. In a no brainer, she chooses the team consisting of Liza (third wheel), Anand (cheater), and Stephanie (bossy biatch). With that, Clint gets Steuart (giggly guy), Mahsa (nightmare!) and Poppy (lest we forget).

Clint’s task is to organize a Liza Minnelli concert and Tournament Dinner, while Brandy must organize a VIP Golf Tournament featuring Kathy Griffin. There’s always a golf tournament at the finale LOL. Apparently it’s a deal breaker! LOL. Sidenote: Is Trump trying to cater to the gays with Kathy Griffin and Liza Minnelli in his finale?

I guess Drake never read the Golden Rule book when it came to his friendship with Lil’ Wayne. Media Takeout is reporting exclusively that shortly after Lil’ Wayne was released from prison, he found himself giving Drake a Knockout. Drama has occurred between these two Young Money stars before but this is the icing on the cake.

New details are being uncovered as to what caused the altercation in the first place. Apparently, Lil’ Wayne feels that Drake is disrespectful to him and doesn’t pay homage to him for all the things he has done for Drake. I also found out that while Lil’ Wayne was in lockdown, Drake was Up All Night, sleeping with Shannell… Lil’ Wayne’s girlfriend. I guess Drake made her Bedrock more than Lil’ Wayne did. Apparently, Weezy isn’t jealous, but still thinks its disrespectful.

Obviously. What Drake, did you not think he’d find out? You’re so dumb. I can’t wait for this to heat up. Who’s team are you on? Team Drake or Team Weezy?

New Bacteria Changes Everything

In: Patrick, Random Reads

Whoa – super interesting! Scientists reported today that they have discovered a new bacteria (Halomonadaceae) that can thrive on arsenic, which as you know is generally considered toxic to humans. All life on earth is made of six components: carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen, oxygen, phosphorus, and sulphur…but this new bacteria uses arsenic instead of phosphorus, substituting one element for the other. Now the whole outlook on life and how it is sustained and might be found in the rest of the universe has totally changed accorded to the NASA funded-researchers.

“Life as we know it requires particular chemical elements and excludes others. But are those the only options? How different could life be? The microbes and bacterium strain we have found named GFAJ-1 are now pointing to new life and expand what could be living out there.”

The country singing sensation joins James Franco, Jon Hamm, Katy Perry, The Smith Kids (Jaden & Willow), Kanye West and Ben Affleck on Entertainment Weekly’s Entertainers 2010 list. However, the magazine singled out Taylor Swift by crowning her “Entertainer of the Year” and putting her on the cover. She is the youngest person to win this prestigious honor. In fact, Swift was only two-years-old when the magazine launched in 1990.

Swift started out 2010 with a hit movie (Valentine’s Day), a hit single (Today Was A Fairytale) and winning four Grammy awards including “Album of the Year”. Then during the middle of the year, she performed to sold-out crowds on her headlining tour. In the Fall, she released her third album, “Speak Now” that sold a jaw-dropping 1,047,000 copies during its first week. With that total, she broke numerous records. The CD has continued to perform well due to strong reviews and radio airplay.

Channing Tatum Goes Back To High School

In: Donovan, Movies

Channing Tatum is heading back to homeroom class for a little undercover work. The 30-year-old stud just signed on to co-star with Jonah Hill in a movie adaptation of “21 Jump Street“. The popular series was one of the first shows Fox aired when it debuted in 1987. The show is responsible for launching the careers of Johnny Depp and Holly Robinson-Peete.

The original series focused on a squad of youthful-looking undercover police officers investigating crimes in high schools and colleges. Hill who developed the story with screenwriter Michael Bacall will take a contemporary take on the show’s premise. At 30 years, Tatum is still one fine-looking hottie, but I don’t think he can realistically pass a high school student. Maybe with the Oprah lens he can pull it off.

With Hill on board and Phil Lord and Christopher Miller directing (Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs), it sounds like the movie might take a more comedic approach. I loved the original series and can’t wait for the remake to hit theaters. Shooting is scheduled to start in the spring.
