Robert Pattinson & Brad Pitt
It seems as though the celestial stars are not the only ones shifting these days. Hollywood's biggest stars seem to be morphing into new and younger ones. Changes in Hollywood, however, are not uncommon - we have seen many older celebrities either die or simply fade away.

From Bette Davis, Joan Crawford, Clark Gable, John Wayne and countless others, superstars of the screen are after all, human. As they age, so do their fan bases. In the last several years Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have risen to superstardom, and they have managed to remain there unscathed. Brangelina are ever...

2009 Oscar Predictions: Who Should Win & Who Will Win

After months of speculation, it's finally time to man up and throw down with some hardcore Oscar predictions. But before we tell you who will and should win the Oscar on Sunday night, let's address the whole secrecy notion surrounding this year's event.

You may not have heard (which is probably part of the point) but the Academy has decided to surround this year's ceremony in mystery. Mainly, they've refused to reveal who will be presenting Oscars this year and have gone so far as to forbid its presenters from appearing on the red carpet. Why? Because they think fashionistas will b...

There's nothing better than a good surprise on Oscar morning, and this year we had one in almost every category. Before we get to the snubs, the surprises and who shouldn't be nominated, let's take a look at what type of a morning this was:

This was the morning that The Academy once again showed how out-of-touch it is. By not dominating "The Dark Knight", the Oscars continued to show that it doesn't care about nominating movies people actually like. There was absolutely no reason this film shouldn't get nominated: It has a 94% percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes, it got an A from audi...

The Fanning family is lucky. They have two pretty young girls, both are established or establishing themselves as respected actresses in an age when tween sexpots sell, and have managed to stay out of the unflattering light of Hollywood - thus far. Two talented daughters, bound to make large amounts of money due to their talent, must deal with the downfalls of normal child stardom. For those who are only familiar with Dakota Fanning, she has a younger sister, Elle, who is fast becoming just as well known as her sister.
