The people who ruined the decade

Part 1: From Will.I.am to Mondeo Man

Forget Bush, Brand and Bin Laden, this decade's pop culture produced its own range of baddies from all corners. So who spent the decade buying ugly houses? Who was responsible for a pig being pleasured on TV, and who encouraged us to seek 'thinspiration' from Lindsay Lohan? Here we zero in on The People Who Ruined The Decade (Tpwrtdtm), the folk who caused 10 years of toxic levels of disappointment ...

Will.I.Am The Chump Who Wrote My Humps (My Humps!)For most of the noughties, Will.I.am ripped the limbs off R&B-flecked pop and left her screaming in a basement. Blame him for such aural travesties as Black Eyed Peas' My Humps (is it a joke? Is it serious? Oh, it's just shit), John Legend's Ordinary People (like an extended and much duller episode of Dr Phil »

Oranges And Sunshine For Watson

3 December 2009 9:37 PM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Emily Watson, Hugo Weaving and David Wenham has signed up to star in Oranges and Sunshine, the first feature from director Jim Loach and one that tells the story of a strange chapter in British and Australian history: the deportation of thousands of children in UK foster care to Australia.Watson* will play social worker Margaret Humphreys, who in 1987 blew the whistle on the "Home Children" child migration scheme, which had gone on for well-nigh a century between 1869 and the 1960s, and had moved British foster children to countries around the Commonwealth, in particular Australia, where they could be raised more cheaply. The children with living parents were often told that their parents had died, while the parents were informed that their children had been adopted elsewhere.Watson will play Humphreys, we're guessing, as the Ron Munro screenplay is based on Humphreys' book, with Wenham and Weaving donning their natural Aussie accents most likely. »
