Julia Roberts looked like she had her face rearranged during a new game with Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show.

In a simple contest titled "Face Balls," Julia and Jimmy threw beach balls at one another's faces in order to produce the funniest slow-motion replay.

In the first round, the two threw smaller balls and laughs as they watched the hilarious recap on a big screen behind them. Jimmy's face was practically flattened by the inflatable, while Julia looked funnier bracing for the hit than actually taking it.

The director picks American Hustle as Best Picture and says making 12 Years a Slave would require courage, "if you made it in Mississippi in 1930." The director then snubs Gravity's Alfonso Cuaron for Best Director, writing, "I have seen things at the pl...

It's Fashion Fail Time! That means we take a break from letting you know how good all of your favorite stars look to show the other side of fashion: the fails!

As awards season heats up, so do the chances of people failing spectacularly on the red carpet. We Love Meryl Streep, but we hate the black, shapeless gown she wore to the SAG Awards.

Rachel Wilde must have known that having a waist-high split in the middle of her gown would lead to shots like this. Even if that was fixed, we're not fans of the color or the too-big sleeves.

It seems Juliette Lewis is rubbing it in that it'...

August: Osage County
Julia Roberts felt "terrible" knocking over Meryl Streep in the film 'August: Osage County'.
The 46-year-old actress, who plays Streep's on-screen daughter Barbara in the gritty comedy drama, was forced to push the 64-year-old star- who plays Violet Weston - to the ground in one scene, which she admits left her feeling guilt-ridden.

SAG Award Nominees Named: '12 Years A Slave' Tops Nods (Full List)

12 Years a Slave
Some people were surprised by The Butler’s presence here, but I don’t see any surprises from them. Movies like Gravity and Her (which are frontrunners for a Best Picture nomination) aren’t large cast films, and wouldn’t get the Ensemble nomination over The Butler. The big surprise is Dallas Buyers Club, which is a relatively small cast, and did manage an Ensemble nomination. That could go a long way in getting DBC to a Best Picture nomination. Also, Daniel Bruhl is back in the race with a Supporting Actor nomination for Rush.

Kudos to the SAG members for nominating James Gandolfini for E...
