Julianne Moore ("Still Alice") still enjoys a commanding lead in the Best Actress race for her portrayal of an academic suffering from early-onset Alzheimer's. However, Jennifer Aniston is coming on strong for her dramatic turn in "Cake" as a grieving mother coming to terms with the death of her son in a car crash that has left her both emotionally and physically scarred. Both women reaped bids for three key precursor prizes -- the Golden Globes, Critics' Choice and SAG Awards -- and both have been working the circuit touting their indie films. -Break- They have faced off once before, back in 2002 at the Independent Spirit Awards. Moore won for her leading role in the period picture "Far From Heaven" over, among others, Aniston for her low-key work in the comedy-drama "The Good Girl." Moore then contended at the Oscars but lost to Nicole Kidman, her co-star from "..." »

The sixth edition of the Les Arcs European Film Festival turned its focus on Ireland with an aim to celebrate its cinematic beauty and history, and in turn, its filmic opportunities.
While the festival’s co-founders Guillaume Calop and Pierre-Emmanuel Fleurantin mentioned in an opening statement that this year had seen a persistent crisis within the European Union (EU) and a loss of confidence in its benefits, Geraldine Byrne Nason (Ambassador of Ireland to France) commented that “things were looking up for Ireland, and that the festival had clearly captured the essence of arts and culture that is very important for the EU.”
The festival’s ‘Irish Focus’ programming included 14 films, including older favourites such as John Crowley’s Intermission, Jim Sheridan’s In the Name of the Father and Neil Jordan’s Michael Collins to more recent movies like John Carney’s Once, Alicia Duffy’s [link »
What a difference a week makes. Once considered a long shot for an Oscar nom, Jennifer Aniston has now received the holy trifecta — nominations for best actress from SAG, Golden Globe and the Critics’ Choice Awards. An Oscar nomination seems more and more likely.
It’s all the more impressive that Aniston has received such attention for a small independent film. In “Cake,” written by first-time screenwriter Patrick Tobin and directed by Daniel Barnz, she plays Claire Simmons, a woman who suffers from chronic pain and becomes obsessed with learning more about a member of her support group who committed suicide. Aniston has never been given such a meaty role on the bigscreen before, and she rewards the filmmakers’ gamble with a beautiful, heartfelt performance.
Aniston has made a lot of progress in a short time in the race and will likely continue. There are so many factors that go »

Just call her Santa Claus. Queen Latifah is making sure that the laid-off staff of her cancelled talk show is being taken care of for Christmas. I just got word that Latifah is using her own money to pay the show's crew through the holidays even though production has officially shut down. (While original episodes of the show will run through March, the production crew is no longer necessary.) It was announced about a month ago that The Queen Latifah Show had been cancelled after two seasons. Produced by Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith, the show included a roster of high-profile guests, including Bill Clinton and Nicole Kidman. "Your dedication and sacrifice was crucial to the entire team, »
Last week's episode of the Fox hit had Mindy's character -- the celebrity-obsessed Dr. Mindy Lahiri -- hanging a wreath plastered with pictures of Reese Witherspoon on it, which she cleverly called a "Wreath Witherspoon." When Kaling asked fans to share their photos of their own homemade Wreath Witherspoons on Instagram, the response was overwhelming.
And now Reese herself is aware of the trend -- and she loves it!
The Oscar winner recently re-posted Mindy's Instagram pic showing off her fans' Wreath Witherspoons, and showed her own appreciation.
"The many variations of a #WreathWitherspoon," Reese wrote on Monday. "Hahah....Love it!!!"
Here's hoping that Mindy's "Rihanna Christmas tree topper" -- which her Catholic boyfriend Danny (Chris Messina) made her take off of the tree -- will also inspire a lot of homemade fan creations.

In 2014, country artists got even closer to their fans.
These five artists went above and beyond and personally serenaded their songs and made even us watching on YouTube tear up. ETonline brings you the cutest moments in country this year.

Nicole Kidman is baby crazy! Kidman, 47, just couldn't help gushing over her interviewer's baby bump in Elle's January issue, on newsstands Dec. 16. "Oh my gosh, you are so lucky.

Nicole Kidman is daring, to say the least.
In a new interview for Elle magazine's January issue, the Oscar-winning actress explains the reasoning behind marrying country superstar Keith Urban after only a month of dating.
"I'm spontaneous. I jump in," she tells the magazine about the bold decision. "I kind of like getting married and then getting to know each other; I know that it sounds incredibly strange, but to me, it's a more natural process."
Incredibly strange, indeed, but seems to have worked out just fine. Nicole and Keith tied the knot in June 2006, and are still going strong eight years later.
The 47-year-old actress, who has four kids -- Isabella, 22, and Connor, 19, with ex-husband Tom Cruise, and daughters Sunday Rose, 6, and Faith, 4, with Keith -- reveals she's still hoping to have another child with the American Idol judge.
