Have plans for New Year's Eve yet? Anderson Cooper and Kathy Griffin do. The dynamic duo will be together again to ring in 2011 live from Times Square in NYC.

Hollywood reacts to the Golden Globe noms

"The King's Speech" received the king's ransom of Golden Globes nods Tuesday, nabbing nominations in seven categories.

Best supporting actor nominee Geoffrey Rush, who plays Lionel Logue in the film, thinks today's nominations show just how much this story, about Britain's King George VI and his attempts to overcome his speech impediment as he reluctantly takes the throne, resonates around the world.

“Playing an Australian commoner called upon to teach a reluctant English King some life lessons for me was fascinating in itself," Rush told CNN in a statement. "To have it embraced by American audiences and to be so honored by the HFPA only endorses how global this story has become. Seeing a small scale project play into an international arena makes this all the more worthwhile."

Michael Jackson fans petition to stop autopsy re-enactment

Michael Jackson fans are fuming over an upcoming Discovery Channel special that features a re-enactment of the late King of Pop's autopsy. Now, they've launched an online petition to try to stop the documentary from airing.

"Based on the autopsy’s report and court documents, the film will show a reproduction of the body of the star in every detail," the petition says of "Michael Jackson's Autopsy: What Really Killed Michael Jackson," set to air in the U.K. on January 13.

The group is urging fans of Jackson – who died of a drug overdose at age 50 in 2009 - to voice their complaints to the Discovery Channel, claiming that "[t]he documentary aims to follow a doctor who will dissect the body and reveal the true reasons for his death by spreading rumors about his addiction or his skin condition."

Leighton Meester may be known for playing Upper East Side schemer Blair Waldorf on the CW’s “Gossip Girl,” but the 24-year-old actress had to rustle up some country charm for her role in the upcoming movie, “Country Strong.”

Meester stars alongside Gwyneth Paltrow in the film about a rehabilitating country singer (Paltrow) who’s trying to make a comeback amidst the competition: Meester’s Chiles Stanton.

In order to get a little bit country, Meester - who has showcased her vocal talents on songs like "Somebody to Love" – turned to some of the genre's top sellers.
