Ellen and Neil Patrick Harris Recreate Scenes From Oscar-Nominated MoviesIn order to show that "acting really isn't that hard," Ellen DeGeneres and Neil Patrick Harris recreate dramatic moments from some of this year's Oscar nominees on 'The Ellen DeGeneres Show' (weekdays, syndicated).

Harris rattles off a line from 'Inception,' and DeGeneres, who's wearing a brown wig that nearly covers her eyes, pauses for a few moments and says, "I have no idea what you're talking about."

On 'Today' (weekdays, 7AM ET on NBC), Meredith Vieira promises to "polish" Colin Firth's Oscar should he win Best Actor for his role in 'The King's Speech.' But James Franco, who's competing against Firth in the same category for his role in '127 Hours,' seems to take exception to Vieira's obvious bias.

James Franco Hopes Hosting The Oscars Will Reduce His Chances of Winning for '127 Hours' (VIDEO)

James Franco talks Oscars on 'Live with Regis and Kelly'James Franco will be co-hosting the Academy Awards with Anne Hathaway in February. He also could very well be nominated for an Oscar for his work in '127 Hours,' the story of a mountain climber who gets trapped between boulders, and has to take gruesome measures to survive. Could he actually end up taking home a golden statue on the same night he hosts the show? Franco discussed his chances and rationale for hosting on 'Live with Regis and Kelly' (Weekdays, Syndicated).

Franco finds the talk of a possible Oscar nomination to be flattering, but somewhat bewildering. With his work on the film over and done with, there's nothing left for him to do now except worry about it. "It'll drive you crazy!" the actor explained. In fact, part of the reason he accepted the hosting gig was so that he could stop thinking about the possibility of his own nomination.

Franco noted that no host has won an Oscar since David Niven in the 50s (Niven hosted the 31st Academy Awards in 1958 and won Best Actor that year for 'Separate Tables'). "I thought, all right, if I am the host, I'll really cut down my chances," said Franco, "and I won't have to worry about it anyway."

James Franco Races (and Screams) for Oscar Glory on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' (VIDEO)

James Franco Races (and Screams) for Oscar Glory on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live'It's been announced that James Franco will be hosting this year's Oscars, along with Anne Hathaway. This is a little unexpected, but the two of them aren't the most unusual hosting picks. Plus, Mr. Franco has been doing a lot of unexpected stuff lately, from appearing on a soap opera, to writing a book of short stories, to starring in a movie where he's trapped under a rock for a very, very long time.

In addition, James seems really excited about this whole thing! So excited, in fact, that he can't contain his enthusiasm on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' (weeknights, 12AM ET on ABC). While talking with Jimmy Kimmel, James requests a favor. Jimmy's studio is right across the street from the Kodak Theatre, where the Oscars will be held. So Franco asks if he can just step away from the interview desk for a second.

Then, James suddenly breaks into a jog. But wait -- what's this? He's headed the wrong way! The theatre is in the other direction! Still, he is showing a lot of ... enthusiasm. We can't find fault with him there.

Maria Bello to Star in HBO's 'Emergency Sex'

by Mike Scalise, posted Jan 29th 2010 11:45AM
Maybe Maria Bello is taking this 'History of Violence' thing a little too seriously.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the former E.R. co-star will headline the HBO series 'Emergency Sex,' based on the book 'Emergency Sex and Other Desperate Measures: A True Story From Hell on Earth'.

The series is inspired by the gritty tales of beleaguered U.N. peacekeepers Kenneth Cain, Heidi Postlewait and Andrew Thomson, who were all stationed in war-torn countries like Cambodia, Somalia and Haiti throughout the early '90s.
