Ace takes the win on 'Luck'

While Nick Nolte was attending the Oscars last night, in which he was nominated for best supporting actor, his character on the fifth episode of HBO’s “Luck” was noticeably absent.

Walter Smith and his successful horse Gettin’ Up Morning had the episode off, which left the spotlight for Dustin Hoffman’s Ace Bernstein – as well as a meatier role to his companion/bodyguard, Gus Demitriou (played by Dennis Farina).

Gus and Ace head down to the track to visit with the trainer, Turo Escalante, of Gus's horse.

'Eastbound & Down': ‘APOCALYPTO!’

After last week’s premiere, I was hit with the same question by my fellow viewers: “Where is Stevie?”

If the previews were any indication, our beloved sidekick was set to return sooner than later, and much to our delight he came back this week. Oh, and he brought Will Ferrell back with him.

But before we get to the hilarity of the “Apocalypto”-themed cannon ball runs at Ashley Schaeffer’s (Ferrell) house, there’s that whole baby thing.

The festivities don't stop with the Oscars ceremony - once the awards are handed out, the stars let loose with the Governor's Ball and Vanity Fair's post-Oscars bash.

We spoke with a number of celebs at the latter gathering, and Sean "P. Diddy" Combs for one was planning on having a good time.

"['Undefeated' filmmaker] TJ [Martin] happens to be the first African American to win an Oscar [for best documentary], and I'm happy to be a part of it," Combs told us as he arrived. Pointing towards the party,  he added, "I plan on having more memories, so if you catch me in a few more hours I'll have some more stories for you!”

Actress Sean Young arrested for battery, released

It sounds like things might've gotten a little testy for actress Sean Young Sunday at a post-Oscars event.

CNN has confirmed that the 52-year-old "Blade Runner" actress was arrested for battery of an unnamed individual on Sunday, and was later released.

According to the Hollywood Police Department, Young "was arrested on a private citizen's arrest," but that's all the information the officials are able to provide at the moment.

TMZ is reporting that the altercation happened at the Governor's Ball, and that the incident Young's been accused of allegedly occurred with a security guard.

Rick and Shane brawl on 'The Walking Dead'

The fight we all knew was coming finally happened on Sunday night's episode of "The Walking Dead."

After Rick confronted Shane with the fact that he knew what happened to Otis, and Shane remarked that Rick couldn't keep the group safe, the two literally came to blows in the midst of leaving Randall to fend for himself.

When a wrench Shane threw at Rick went into a window, it attracted a swarm of walkers (the moment when Shane realized what he did, reflected in the glass, was one of the most amazing images in the series' short history – in fact, this entire episode had some extraordinary camera work).
