Michelle Rodriguez: No Oscar nod for Nicole Kidman

“Avatar” star Michelle Rodriguez may have stepped in the proverbial hornet’s nest with some eyebrow-raising comments she made in France recently.

The outspoken actress was speaking to New York magazine's Vulture last week at an amfAR event when she offered her take on Lee Daniels’ new film “The Paperboy.”

To the question of whether one of the film’s stars, Nicole Kidman, could potentially earn an Oscar for her controversial turn in the flick (she "pees" on co-star Zac Efron in one scene) Rodriguez promptly shot the possibility down. Her reason? Kidman's neither “black” nor “trashy.”

'True Blood' couple ready for 'bundle of fun'

Baby will soon make three for “True Blood” on-and-off-screen couple Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer, and Paquin showed off her growing bump recently in Los Angeles.

The pair attended the red carpet premiere for season 5 of HBO’s epic vampire saga, and though the 29-year-old Oscar winner stayed mum about the couple’s first child together, Moyer was a bit more vocal.

It probably helps that the 42-year-old has been to this rodeo before, having already had two other children from a previous relationship.

Deadline reported on Walsh’s rumored potential exit Thursday as well as the abbreviated season, hinting that things aren’t looking too rosy for Shonda Rhimes' "Grey's Anatomy" spin-off.
