And the winner of this year’s edition of the Golden Globe Awards is… Robert Downey Junior!
The title of best performance of an actor in a motion picture for his part in Sherlock Holmes went, not very surprisingly, in his collection of trophies.
Even before the ceremony, the well known actor and singer had very high expectations and thought he was going to win (he always does so, as he declared for the reporters of USA Today). There was one thing Robert, 44, feared during his official speech: not to make a mistake when quoting Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.
The long term plans regarding Sherlock Holmes are, obviously, to continue it (especially after winning a Golden Globe) and eventually making a whole series, which will certainly thrill the numerous fans of the legendary character.
A series of sneaking in and out of their apartments – this is how one could classify the largely disputed relationship between pop idol Madonna and Alex Rodriguez, a baseball player for the NY Yankees.
Although none of them has admitted to having more than a close friendship, A-Rod’s ex-girlfriend, actress Kate Hudson declared that their story can not go on for “his heart belongs to Madonna”; more than that, the 34 years old baseball player has always bragged with having a special bond with the singer, who actually turned to him repeatedly, including after the split with her ex-husband, director Guy Ritchie and apparently now as well, after the break-up with Brazilian model Jesus Luz.
Common friends of Madonna and Alex say they are still being sweet on each other, although the baseball player has always been concerned about the damage that admitting to a relationship with her would cause him, especially after the long divorce he has been through a great part of 2008 (with Cynthia Rodriguez).
The news that Michael C. Hall, who played the main part in the series of drama “Six Feet Under” (on HBO) and Dexter in the homonym series (Showtime series) has to fight Hodgkin’s lymphoma (a form of cancer) before coming back on the set shook the media worldwide these last days.
Although he has recently declared that he finds himself in a much better state, that he is under treatment and that his condition is curable, fans seem to be overwhelmed with care (and concern, one might add, since the fifth season of Dexter is yet to come).
The 38 year old actor was suffering from Hodgkin’s lymphoma, a treatable condition, which is now in complete remission, and he publicly gave thanks to the doctors and nurses that got him through the expertise.

The Twilight star who has recently been declared the world’s sexiest man alive (by the British “Glamour” magazine), is wanted for the new Spider man series.
It might be that Tobey Maguire is simply too old for the part or that Rob’s charm and acting skills have already convinced the producers, either way, the discussions are ongoing. Spider Man 4 will be about Peter Parker in his high school years and Robert Pattinson is thought to be one of the best actors to picture that; the producers still have Michael Cera and Chace Crawford in mind.
Pattinson is as busy as he can be shooting Bel Ami, alongside Uma Thurman.Until a new blockbuster, Twilight is still scoring and to be continued.

According to sources these 3 years have been an emotionally tough period for Jude Law. Sienna too was tired of her single life and wishes to remain with Jude forever. The two have sorted out their differences and are back together with a bang.
“The Jay Leno Show will no longer air at 10 p.m.” declared Jeff Gaspin, the network chairman of NBC, because although the show was reaching audience within the networks, the affiliates did not get the same feedback and the change became necessary.
Therefore, starting February 12, Jay Leno will be part of NBC’s late-night lineup, along with Conan O’Brien and Jimmy Fallon. The Jay Leno Show will probably move to 11:35, The Tonight Show to 12:05 and Late Night with Jimmy Fallon would then start at 1:05 but details are yet to be settled.
Although all three have treated the decision graciously and with professionalism, during one of his shows last week Leno joked that he might be considering signing a contract with Fox and there are chances that O’Brien also turned to the rival TV station.
All great things come to an end. Miley Cyrus has decided she wants to be more than a Disney character.

Even though Hollywood’s Party girls seem to have taken a vacation recently, some say because the economic mess making Americans less likely to think their over-indulgence entertaining anymore, they are still active.
Here is the Top 10.
1. Paris Hilton
Paris Hilton can easily be the queen of the Hollywood party scene but even she doesn’t seem to like the headlines anymore.
Ever since her disastrous and humiliating stay in the Los Angles County jail Paris has maintained not only a low profile but is actually cleaning up her image.
She has moved in with her steady boyfriend and spends a great deal of her time working on selling her cosmetics and clothing, and then she is in partying. Maybe Paris has hung up her spurs, maybe not.
There have been reports of her disturbing neighbors with loud parties. The best indicator might be seeing how she does once the economy lifts.
