'Forrest Gump,' 'Bambi' added to National Film Registry

Tom Hanks' "Forrest Gump" will live on as a cultural treasure in the National Film Registry of the Library of Congress.

The 1994 film is among the 25 movies that have been selected for 2011, bringing the grand total of movies preserved there to 575. This year's list includes movies made between 1912 and 1994, and runs the gamut from documentaries and home movies to animation and avant-garde shorts, the National Film Registry says in a statement.

The Registry goes on to explain that the features selected made the cut because they've been deemed as "culturally, historically or aesthetically significant."

Janet Jackson is PETA's 'Grinch of the Year'

Janet Jackson has landed on PETA's "naughty" list this holiday, and Kim Kardashian isn't far behind.

The animal rights organization has named Jackson "Grinch of the Year" for launching a collection with fur company Blackglama, according to GossipCop.

"When Janet Jackson had her infamous 'wardrobe malfunction' during the Super Bowl, at least the flesh that popped into view was her own - unlike the stolen animal skins that she drapes herself with, which are as dead as her taste in fashion (not to mention her career)," the organization says in a press release.

As Entertainment Weekly reports, musician Jeffrey Goho says in an interview with New Jersey's Asbury Park Press that it was a tweet he sent from his friend's account that launched the widespread Web concern that Bon Jovi had passed on.

(The interview doesn't mention the blog item, which appears to have since been removed, that asserted details for the purported death of the 49-year-old rocker.)
