This weekend, Jason Bateman and Ryan Reynolds will add their names to the long and distinguished list of actors who have tackled the “body swap” movie. In “The Change-Up,” Bateman and Reynolds play friends with drastically different lifestyles: Bateman is the devoted husband and father, Reynolds is the philandering playboy. After a night of drinking, the two wake up in each other’s bodies, something neither of them really wanted.

Body swap movies have been around for a long time and are usually quite entertaining, if formulaic and predictable. Here’s our list of the Top Ten Body Swap Movi...

Secrets From the Red Carpet at the 2011 Oscars

Anne Hathaway
When you watch the Academy Awards red carpet on TV, you see only snippets of what is really going on. The noise, the lights, and all of the people are in one short stretch of space along Hollywood Boulevard.

The fan bleachers that line the right hand side of the carpet are one of the hottest tickets in town and they aren’t easy to get a ticket to. Years ago, the fans were allowed to camp out and wait for a place along the red carpet. These days, it is done by lottery in the early fall the year before. The bleacher seats are also a great litmus test to how popular a celebrity is these da...

That said, here are my predictions for who will take home the gold at this Sunday’s Academy Awards in the major categories. I’ve devised my own odds system, which is completely made up; but, it does give a sense of how strongly I view the chances of each nominee.

What do you think? Am I way off base anywhere? Which categories are easiest to pred...

Yesterday, I had the opportunity to sit with approximately fifty other journalists to interview the 83rd Annual Academy Award nominees at the annual Nominees Luncheon at the Beverly Hilton.

The luncheon is a very private and supportive event where nominees individually receive a certificate honoring their nomination. The interview room is pretty...
