Seven days in entertainment
The biggest events from last week including the Kid's Choice Awards, the premiere of ''Smart People,'' and more
A slew of Hollywood’s biggest stars embraced their inner child this week by concocting illegal science experiments, creating MySpace pages, and…sliming each other with green goo. Yes, things got sticky over at Nickelodeon’s annual Kids’ Choice Awards, where Harrison Ford, Orlando Bloom, and host Jack Black oozed with excitement.
In an exclusive peek at the sci-fi thriller Splice, Sarah Polley and Adrien Brody reach for God-knows-what in a tub. The two star as scientists whose unethical DNA experiment creates a human/animal hybrid.
Costars Thomas Haden Church, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Dennis Quaid were spotted talking about the Sex and the City movie — that, or they’re sharing a laugh at the March 31 Cinema Society screening of their dramedy Smart People in New York City.
WEB OBSESSION OF THE WEEK
