OPRAH SCREAMS CELEBRITY NAMES
We're all broken up over the Big O's decision to hang up her daytime-talk-show mic in 2011.

We especially love ''Pahhnelope Cruuuuuuuuuuuuz!!!!''

STANLEY TUCCI in Julie & Julia, now on DVD
We knew that he had good chemistry with Meryl Streep in The Devil Wears Prada, but he really rises like a soufflé in this culinary dramedy as the charming, sophisticated, empathetic husband of Julia Child (perfectly played by Streep). And we love that he loves that she loves to eat.

''BRICK BY BORING BRICK'' video, Paramore
Boring? Hardly. The Tennessee pop-punk titans' latest video conjures a dark fairy-tale fantasia (Malice in Wonderland?) that is not meant for children. Even the butterflies are foreboding.

STAR WARS STATUS UPDATES
What if characters like Han Solo and Luke Skywalker took time out from saving a galaxy far, far away to post inane status updates on Facebook? The impressive — most impressive — answer can now be found. Our favorite? This post from General Veers: ''My boss's breathing is so annoying, it's all like 'HOOO PAAAA HOOOO PAAA' whats up with that?'' Vader's response: ''I am going to force choke the piss out of you at work tomorrow.''

SANDRA BULLOCK in The Blind Side
The trailers looked like hokey inspirational schlock, but thanks to Bullock's restrained but subtly powerful performance, the movie is a (well-deserving) hit. —Clayton
