Mike Huckabee criticizes Natalie Portman for being pregnant and unwed

One person not cheering recent Oscar winner Natalie Portman? Mike Huckabee.

The Fox News Channel host has criticized the "Black Swan" star for being pregnant and unmarried.

"One of the things that's troubling is that people see a Natalie Portman or some other Hollywood starlet who boasts of, 'Hey look, you know, we're having children, we're not married, but we're having these children,' and they're doing just fine,'" Huckabee told radio host Michael Medved on Monday. "But there aren't really a lot of single moms out there who are making millions of dollars every year for being in a movie."

How to win a breakup on 'Jersey Shore'

I think it’s safe to say Sammi is winning her breakup with Ron. How does one win a breakup, you ask? By not following the other party around like a sad puppy dog, for starters.

With the exception of Ron, everyone seemed genuinely excited to welcome Sammi back. Especially Deena, who said she was just “histatic” about it. For those of you who don’t speak “Shore,” “histatic” is when you’re, “like, really happy.” Kind of like ecstatic, but different.

'Star Wars' 3-D arriving in theaters February 2012

George Lucas is taking the "Star Wars" movies into a whole new galaxy, re-releasing each of the fantasy films as a 3-D spectacular.

The first of the films, "Star Wars: Episode 1 - The Phantom Menace," is expected to arrive in theaters on February 10, 2012, reports the L.A. Times. The plan is to roll out additional 3-D conversions of the remaining five flicks each year after that.

"Phantom Menace" isn't the only big 3-D blockbuster hitting screens in 2012. According to the L.A. Times, a 3-D conversion of James Cameron's "Titanic" will sail into theaters next April, with "Conan the Barbarian," "Fright Night" and "Adventures of Tintin" arriving later in the year.

Are you excited to see "Star Wars," and all those other movies, in 3-D?

'American Idol' has its Top 13 for the season

While the Top 13 was announced on "American Idol" Thursday night, the evening really belonged to Stefano Langone.

Although the 21-year-old, who battled back from a debilitating accident to be able to walk again, didn't make the initial Top 10 cut, he poured his heart out in the wild card round and snagged a spot.

His version of the gospel hit "I Need You Now" by Smokie Norful brought the audience to their feet and visibly moved the judges. A performance became a prayer as Stefano crooned "Lord I need you, right away."
