Say what you will about her "American Idol" issues, but Nicki Minaj is poised to be a potential big winner at this year's American Music Awards.
Minaj and Rihanna lead the 2012 group of nominees with four nods a piece.
Today's news you might've missed:
Anne Hathaway and Mindy Kaling working on the same project? That's like a gift from the romantic comedy gods - or so we hope it will be.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, Kaling's co-written a film called "The Low Self-Esteem of Lizzie Gillespie" which, while it sounds rather depressing, is a comedic take on how a woman's poor sense of self-worth has meant a dating life filled with no-good guys. But that all starts to change once "the hottest guy ever" starts wooing her.
Hathaway is attached to star in the rom-com, and Kaling would possibly have a supporting role. The "Mindy Project" actress is also one of the executive producers on the project, as is her co-screenwriter, "The Office" producer Brent Forrester.
"The Low Self-Esteem of Lizzie Gillespie" is still in development, and has yet to find a director.
Cue the music! The "Peanuts" gang will soon arrive on the big screen, the Los Angeles Times reports.
Charlie Brown, Linus, Lucy, Snoopy and the rest are set to star in an animated movie due out November 25, 2015.
When it arrives, the currently untitled "Peanuts" movie will mark the 65th anniversary of the debut of Charles M. Schulz's beloved comic strip, as well as the 50th anniversary of "A Charlie Brown Christmas," the Times notes (and no, not in an attempt to make us all feel old).
All was quiet on the "Fifty Shades of Grey" movie front for months, aside from the occasional actor offering to do full-frontal, but we finally got an update on Monday.
The film, based on the erotic novel/Twilight fanfiction by E.L. James, will be written by Kelly Marcel, whose credits include the forthcoming Tom Hanks vehicle "Saving Mr. Banks" ... and "Terra Nova," leaving some curious how she'll handle the saucier aspects of James' story.
Let's travel back to the year 2008, when the idea of watching TV on the Internet was still a relatively new concept and online "Webisodes" were in their infancy. (And when "Iron Man" was in one of the biggest movies of the year - by himself.)
That was the year "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" and "Firefly" creator Joss Whedon unleashed on the public a free three-part mini-series called "Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog." The fact that it starred Neil Patrick Harris was an added bonus.
