President Bush will propose a dramatic increase to $250,000 in government payments to families of U.S. troops killed in the Iraq and Afghanistan wars and in future combat zones. That is about 20 times the current amount.

Best Picture Oscar Collection (18-Pack) This is the start of a good idea. I would like to see them do more of these sets. All the nominated films of 1999, let's say, with the full Oscar show as a bonus.

The teaser trailer for Nanny McPhee
  • Emma Thompson, whose first screenplay won the 1995 Oscar for 'Sense and Sensibility,' returns to screenwriting with 'Nanny McPhee,' a motion picture adaptation of the 'Nurse Matilda' books by Christianna Brand. Thompson, the only person to have won Oscars for both acting and writing, also plays the title role in 'Nanny McPhee,' opposite Colin Firth, Kelly Macdonald and-in her first role for the big screen in two decades-Angela Lansbury. In this dark and witty fable, Thompson portrays a person of unsettling appearance and magical powers who enters the household of the recently widowed Mr. Brown (Firth) and attempts to tame his seven exceedingly ill-behaved children.

In an announcement which is stunning the world, France has decided to change its name permanently to Stinkland. According to Council spokesperson Jacques Mouffette, "Our country is so well known for its pungent aromas -- our runny cheeses, spoiled meats, overflowing sewage systems, and citizens who don't bathe or use deodorant -- that we decided to capitalize upon it with the name change."

Film producers threatened legal action against Kelly Brook and Billy Zane unless he backed down over demands that nude shots of Kelly should be cut from Three."
  • "At first Kelly and Billy were fine with everything, she was happily getting naked, but then they started dating. After that he kicked up a huge fuss about the nudity and started trying to block those scenes. It got really ugly. The producers had to call in lawyers and threaten him and Kelly."

'The Incredibles', a box office smash and possibly the best-reviewed film of the year, was virtually ignored by the Academy - but kicked ass at the Annies. (The Incredibles was nominated for Best Animated Film, but might have been nominated as Best Picture in a fairer world which does not equate automatically quality with genocide, insanity, and courageously dyin' people)

Jennifer Capriati is apparently dating a porn star named Dale DeBone. True cinema aficionados will remember him from such triumphs as Fluffy Cumsalot, Anal Drillers 4, and the timeless screen romance I Cream on Genie. Damn, I didn't know there was an Anal Drillers 4. I gotta rent it, because that cliffhanger ending in Anal Drillers 3 was maddening!

The bad news: Eva Mendes hates sex scenes. The good news: no problem with frontal nudity. OK by me. Those guys just get in the way anyway.
