While you were working ...

Today's news you might've missed:

  • No Oscar nod, no problem - Ben Affleck still won over critics with his direction of best picture nominee "Argo," and the proof is in the Critics Choice Movie Award he picked up Thursday night. "I'd like to thank the Academy," Affleck cracked during his acceptance speech. "I'm kidding. I'm kidding! This is the one that counts." [People]

  • There seems to be no stopping the growth of "The Big Bang Theory." The CBS sitcom has set yet another ratings record, pulling in 19.8 million viewers on Thursday night. [EW]
  • Destiny's Child reportedly isn't keeping their reunion in the studio - the group is set to reform for Beyonce's Super Bowl Halftime Show. We'd like to hear "Soldier," please - minus a fall from Michelle. [Us Weekly]
  • Speaking of Beyonce - Blue Ivy photos alert! [Beyonce.com/Life + Times.com]
  • We've wondered if graduation day was looming for our "Pretty Little Liars," but it looks like they're going to be in high school for as long as we're still guessing who the chief "A" is. Executive producer Oliver Goldstick said at TCAs, "Time moves very slowly in this town, so their senior year is going to last a long time…They’re going to (ultimately) be Golden Girls Liars.” [Deadline]
  • Word has it Jennifer Lawrence has split from her beau Nick Hoult. We're only allowing ourselves to get semi-depressed, in case this is just a false alarm. [In Touch Weekly]
