(Hint: It's not the intimate scenes he shares with Michael Douglas in “Behind the Candelabra.”)

W magazine names the year's best performances

Awards season is ready to launch – the Golden Globes will air this Sunday – and in W magazine’s February issue, on newsstands January 25, some of the most talked about performances are highlighted.

We’re willing to bet you can guess the stars included in the round-up off the top of your head: Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis in “Black Swan”; Nicole Kidman in “Rabbit Hole”; Colin Firth in “The King’s Speech”; and all three of “The Social Network’s” stars, Jesse Eisenberg, Justin Timberlake and Andrew Garfield, to name a few.

See the entire "Best Performances" portfolio at W

The portfolio, W says, is an attempt to recognize actors whose performances stood head and shoulders above the rest, to “acknowledge and salute the work, to acknowledge and thank the actors for telling the truth—even when the truth was fiction.”

Above you’ll see a few of the famous faces that offered what W considers to be the top performances of the past year, along with statements on their own relationship to and understanding of great cinema. For more, visit WMagazine.com.

Michael Douglas and family hang with Mickey Mouse

Now if this doesn’t put you in the holiday spirit, we’re not quite sure what will.

On the day before Thanksgiving, “Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps” star Michael Douglas was all smiles as he stopped for a photo op in front of the Epcot theme park Christmas tree in Lake Buena Vista, Florida, with two other Hollywood greats: Mickey and Minnie Mouse.

The actor, who has been recovering from eight weeks of chemotherapy and radiation to treat throat cancer, was joined by his wife, actress Catherine Zeta Jones, and their two children, Dylan (left), 10, and Carys (right), 7.

Douglas announced that doctors had found a tumor in his throat in August, and finished up treatment for the illness in October.
