Terrence Malick's non-linear existential meditation on family, "The Tree of Life," earned another accolade yesterday as the African-American Film Critics Association named it their selection for Best Picture of 2011.
In other major categories, "The Help" and the independent film "Pariah" led the way with two wins each, with "The Help"'s Viola Davis and Octavia Spencer winning Best Actress and Best Supporting Actress respectively. "Pariah" took home the award for Best Independent Film, while star Adepero Oduye won for breakout Performance.
Meanwhile, Albert Brooks continued to build Oscar momentum, winning the award for Best Supporting Actor for his villainous turn in "Drive." Woody Harrelson took top honors in the Best Actor category for an even more villainous performance as a corrupt L.A. cop in "Rampart," while Malick was surprisingly stoned in the Best Director category; despite the singular vision of "Tree of Life," the Aafca bestowed the award »

There's nothing like appearing on the same bill as Twilight's Robert Pattionson to generate a little bit of buzz! Australian singer/songwriter Lenka has been hard at work promoting her new album "Two" and on Wednesday's episode of "Jimmy Kimmel Live," she had us eating out of the palm of her hand.
Lenka performed her songs "Heart Skips a Beat" and "Everything at Once," going for an odd "medical chic" theme.
Originally from Sydney, Lenka worked as an actress during her teenage years and fronted the indie band December Ring before breaking out on her own. She moved to Los Angeles, but quickly abandoned L.A. for the Brooklyn music scene, where she found success with her song "The Show."
"Two" was released April 19. Watch the performance below.
Last night's episode of Grey's Anatomy, "P.Y.T. (Pretty Young Thing)," answered some questions while introducing some new ones in a terrific hour at Seattle Grace.
The soundtrack helped set the tone, as always. Below is a list of the Grey's Anatomy music from Thursday. If we missed any, leave a comment and let us know!
Communist Daughter - "Soundtrack To The End" Communist Daughter - "Speed Of Sound" Lenka - "Everything At Once" Twin Sister - "I Want A House"
