Sandra Bullock, Kate Winslet Victims Of 'Best Actress' Oscar Curse? (Video)

March 19th, 2010 12:20am EDT
Oscar Curse
The latest news about Sandra Bullock's husband, Jesse James, allegedly cheating on her and the recent revelation that Kate Winslet is splitting from her husband, director Sam Mendes, leads us to believe that perhaps their recent Best Actress Oscar wins have something to do with it.

The curse appears to have begun in 2001, when Julia Roberts won the award for her performance in "Erin Brockovich". Shortly after her win (although not married to each other) she dumped boyfriend Benjamin Bratt.

It was a nail-biter for weeks as a Hollywood writers strike threatened to decimate Sunday's Oscars, with stars and filmmakers indicating they would not cross picket lines if the labor quarrel remained unsettled.

In the wake of the Golden Globes, whose celebrity bash was stripped down to a pitiful mid-January news conference because of the strike, Oscar organizers insisted their ceremony would go on as planned.

The 100-day strike ended less than t...

Oscar heavyweight No Country For Old Men
It's going to happen after all. For months Hollywood was left to wonder whether or not its crown jewel, the Oscars, would even go on. But with the strike resolved and plenty of time left to plan, tinsletown is certain to be completely alight once again this Sunday for yet another four or five or maybe even six hours in heaven.

But what should we expect from the first real movie awards show of the season? Probably some lame jokes, great performances and many upsets since the out-of-work voters actually had a chance to see all the nominees.

'So Real: Songs From Jeff Buckley' Is The First Anthology Of The Late Singer

May 7th, 2007 6:00pm EDT
Jeff Buckley
One of rock's hardest lessons is that the impact of an artist's career is often not measured by the time he spends among us, but rather by the intensity with which his music reverberates after he is gone. Jeff Buckley yielded one original studio album on Columbia Records during his lifetime, the impossibly glorious Grace, released in the summer of 1994. It made its way onto many a fan and critic's list as one of the most important recordings of the '90s.

Buckley's "lamentably brief career," as it has been characterized by his mother, Mary Guibert, came to a tragic and untimely end on...
