Today's news you might've missed:

  • Britney Spears has quietly emerged as the top-earning female musician of the year, with her estimated $58 million haul placing her ahead of scene-stealers Taylor Swift and Rihanna. Headlines don't make dollars, kids. [Forbes]
  • Seth Cohen Adam Brody is going to join Golden Globe nominee Don Cheadle and our other favorite teen TV alum, Kristen Bell, on Showtime's "House of Lies" in a guest role for two episodes.  Season 2 will premiere on January 13 at 10 p.m. ET.
  • We guess this means Jon Stewart doesn't dig "Bridget Jones" movie marathons nearly as much as we do. [E! News]
  • "Private Practice" will officially close its doors on January 22, which, yes, is kind of an odd time to do a series finale. But, on the plus side, Audra McDonald's returning for it! [TV Guide]
  • The Parents Television Council, perhaps having run out of shows to take a stance against, has turned their attention to AMC's "The Walking Dead" to question its TV-14 rating. We're all for having an opinion, we're just curious why the PTC is just now hearing about the gore-fest that is "TWD." [EW]
  • Because we love Olivia Wilde and Jason Sudeikis - hearted all the more when Wilde revealed that they have the bedroom stamina of marathon runners - we hope that the rumor of their supposed secret engagement and wedding plans are true. [Radar]

The nominees are in for the Globes - check out their reactions

Any planned weekend fetes are getting started early for some of Hollywood's major players as we cap off a week of nominations.

Over the past two days, films like "Lincoln," "Silver Linings Playbook," "Argo" and "Les Misérables" have reveled in nods while TV shows like "Homeland," "Downton Abbey," "Modern Family" and "Breaking Bad" have reaffirmed their status as critical favorites.

All of the recognition has left Jennifer Lawrence, a darling of critics and everyday fans alike, a little stunned. The 22-year-old actress has earned both a SAG and a Golden Globe nod for her work in David O. Russell's "Silver Linings Playbook," which is also up for the best comedic motion picture Golden Globe.
