The American Film Institute has released its list of the 10 best movies of 2011, with buzzed-about spring/summer releases "Bridesmaids" and "The Help" among them.
George Clooney's latest release, "The Descendants," also made the top 10, along with "Midnight In Paris"; "War Horse" (which comes out this month); "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" (another December release); "Hugo"; and "J. Edgar."
Brad Pitt appears in the other two films rounding out the AFI's list: "Moneyball" and "The Tree of Life," which coincidentally was also named the best film of the year by the African-American Film Critics Association today.
It looks like Coldplay frontman Chris Martin is something of a Little Monster.
According to U.K. paper The Sun, Martin gushed about Gaga before his band's “X Factor” final performance at Wembley Arena Sunday night, and raved about her ability to pen a catchy chorus.
"She's very sweet,” Martin said of Gaga. “I think what undercuts it all, though, is that she's talented and she writes everything.”
The 34-year-old musician continued with his compliments, saying, "I just admire all of the hats and the dresses and the madness and everything because I know that underneath it all she can beat me at writing choruses."
Retailer Lowe's is facing backlash from players in politics and entertainment after deciding to pull its advertisements from TLC's "All-American Muslim."
The Learning Channel's series follows five Muslim families living in Dearborn, Michigan, and Lowe's told CNN over the weekend that it has received "a significant amount of communication from every perspective possible" regarding the show.
"Individuals and groups have strong political and social views on this topic, and this program became a lightning rod for many of those views. As a result we did pull our advertising on this program. We believe it best to defer to communities, individuals and groups to discuss and consider such issues of importance."
Knowing that Steven Spielberg is an executive producer on this winter's behind-the-Broadway-scenes drama "Smash," the filmmaker's dream of working on a musical movie makes sense.
In fact, Spielberg tells CNN, he's been wanting to craft a musical for years.
“I’d love to do an old-fashioned musical, where the characters talk to each other and then they sing to each other. I’m such a fan of the Hollywood musical, but I haven't found the right subject matter or the right book or the right music to throw myself into one of them. But someday I will."
