Here's what's happening in the world of entertainment today:
Oscar buzz continues to build around "Precious," and movie studio Lionsgate plans to expand it to 1,200 theaters over Thanksgiving, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The studio's president told the paper that the word of mouth for the movie is higher than that of most "prestige films" this early on.
Speaking of Oscar buzz, the chances for this past summer's "Up" to be nominated for Best Picture continue to look good. The Hollywood Reporter says that if that happened, it would be the first time a movie has been nominated for both Best Picture and Best Animated Feature. "Beauty and the Beast" was the last animated movie nominated for Best Picture in 1991.
Donald Trump and first season "Apprentice" contestant Omarosa are getting back together, Variety reports. The pair are working on a reality dating show called "Omarosa's Ultimate Merger." Omarosa also appeared on the first season of "Celebrity Apprentice."
Another one bites the dust: ABC has decided not to renew new series "Eastwick," EW.com reports. However, another new series, "The Forgotten," just got an additional five episodes ordered.
On DVD today: the aforementioned "Up," "The Ugly Truth," starring Katherine Heigl and Gerard Butler, Ashton Kutcher in "Spread," "Andy Barker, P.I.: The Complete Series" and "Sesame Street: 40 Years of Sunny Days."
