Like so many of us, the New Girl writers love bad old pop music and college flashbacks. So of course when Nick and his freshman crush Amelia finally wound up in bed last night, the song playing softly in the background was Sheryl Crow’s 1995 hit “Strong Enough.” You know: “Lie to me, I promise I’ll believe.” Sure, it could have been a throwaway period detail, a bit of scene-setting not unlike Nick’s ratty Baja hoodie. But hear me out, folks: I think it was something more. I think that song contains the key to last night’s episode. Because here’s the thing: Last night, all of our principle characters were lying—not to other people, but to themselves. Nick, Jess, Winston, Schmidt, and Cece are each as knowingly self-deluded as Sheryl in that song. Listen, I know it sounds dubious, but the lady dated Lance Armstrong for years, »

Actors are calling up hair and makeup to make videos in support of the president – while Romney cancels on The View. Oops
In today's political celebrity news: while Mitt Romney cancelled a planned appearance on The View, a show he previously described as "high-risk because of the five women on it, only one is conservative, and four are sharp-tongued and not conservative", the ladies of Hollywood have been busy making endorsement videos for Barack Obama.
It's good for us to remember that actors are people too. And if they care about our country enough to call hair and makeup and recite a few lines in front of a camera, we say go for it, good citizens of Los Angeles.
The videos, most of which can be seen on the Barack Obama YouTube channel, range in quality from the sappy, highly produced and musically scored to a couple that I could »

Well lookie here! Lookie here! It’s that time of year again! San Diego Comic Con is just a couple weeks away and the schedules for each day is steadily rolling out.

The identity of Rosie Larsen's killer(s) wasn't the only revelation on the finale of AMC's critically maligned detective series.
By Josh Wigler
On June 17, 2012, the unthinkable happened: After two seasons filled with enough whodunit headaches to scare away even the most patient of viewers, "The Killing" finally unmasked its killer — or killers, rather.The AMC detective series' season-two finale finally resolved the mystery that plagued committed fans for 26 long episodes. I was not one of those fans. I, like many of you, bailed on "The Killing" very early on in season one. Also like many of you, I was stunned to learn that the season-one finale didn't answer the question of who killed Rosie Larsen; viewers would have to wait until the end of season two for that particular case to close, extending the longest episode of "Law & Order: Svu" by an additional marathon. »

As you may have gleaned, I really like great judges on reality TV. While it takes a primed pro like Ryan Seacrest or Cat Deeley to make sure the entire operation runs smoothly, the judges can elevate the quality of a reality competition from vapidly entertaining to thoroughly compelling. Since the always-dubious Britney Spears is poised to super-officially announce her gig as the new panelist on X Factor, it's time to step up and declare who should really be filling Paula Abdul's shaky shoes. I've got 25 better candidates, ranked and ready for Simon Cowell's consideration.
25. Katy Perry
Sure, she's kitschy and a little shallow, but she's entertainingly goofy and even earnest in interviews. Katy Perry would also be likely to grade the energy and stage presence of contestants, which is always a sorely under-discussed component on these shows.
I worry he'd be even less critical than Adam Levine, »
If there's one rule governing the animal kingdom, it's this: You do not mess with Mom. Ever. If you come between a mama and her cub, you will lose. They're the most terrifying force in the animal kingdom, and they'll do anything to protect their babies.
Of course, you don't need science to tell you that. You know Mom can always be counted on to swoop in like a cookie-baking Batman, knock out a bully, and take you home for story time. (That reminds us, have you bought her a present yet?)
Movies may not get a lot right (physics, romance, book adaptations), but for the most part, they do right by moms. Especially tough moms. Cinema is packed with gun-toting, take-no-prisoners, willing-to-die mothers, and they're all so inspiring that we hated cutting it off at 9. But we did, and here are the Baddest Muthas in Movies.

American Idol ‘s Top 13 performers haven’t even set foot on stage to sing as finalists, but the Las Vegas oddsmakers have already picked a winner — and the unfortunate contestant they believe is likely to go home Thursday night.

Currently in the lead to take it all is strummer Phillip Phillips, whose acoustic takes on pop classics have made him a favorite. This morning, sports site Bovada has him favored to win with 7/2 odds. »

Didn't get an invite to this year's Oscars? Neither did Xan Brooks, but he stoically blogged the red carpet and then the ceremony anyway
10.57pm: And so it begins ....
11.25pm: Roll carpet, roll cameras: it's the 84th annual Academy Awards, live and lurid from Hollywood. The Guardian film team will be covering the event throughout the night, weeping with the winners and wailing with the losers as this season's awards circus clatters exhaustedly towards the finish line. This is where it ends, inside the Hollywood and Highland Centre (reputedly the winner of the 2007 "Ugliest Building in La" award). Inside, the victors shall be encased in gold, the vanquished shown the door and all manner of movies laid tenderly to rest.
But wait, kick back, and keep the war horses tethered: the actual ceremony does not officially commence until 5pm (Pacific time). Time enough to cast an eye back over some late-breaking Oscar news. »

Denzel Washington is a fine, fine actor. But his movie titles? They lie to us. They lie to us a lot...
I fully appreciate that it’s not an easy job to come up with a sellable title for a film. In an ideal world, it has to convey the subject of what the movie is about, and also be catchy enough, for good reasons, for us to remember.
However, I sat down to watch the new Denzel Washington/Ryan Reynolds flick Safe House last week, and it immediately became clear – and this is only telling you something that’s in the trailer – that the house in question didn’t appear to be very safe at all. Truthfully, it wouldn't be much of a movie if it was.
I then started considering some of the more recent Denzel Washington movies I’d seen of late, and, well, here’s my scientific research. »
