As the Oscars are nearly upon us, this Sunday is sure to be the biggest event of the year. And lucky Brit actress Carey Mulligan who has been nominated for the  Best Actress award is happy for another reason at the moment… her Transformers star boyfriend Shia LaBeouf.

“An Education” starlet Mulligan met the action hero on the set of their new film “Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps” last August and it seems the couple have been well and truly loved up ever since.

LaBeouf has been linked to co star Megan Fox and singer Rihanna but it seems he may have now found himself a talented English rose to call his girlfriend. Lets hope he escorts her down the red carpet on Sunday as to make their first public appearance together.

Michael Douglas who also stars in the follow up to the 1987 Wall Street classic, warned the both of them about the dangers of off screen relationships but also made  it clear that they are perfect for each other. He said: “I warned them, “Don’t ever do that”, but they are an item and they are having a great time.”

Well we have our fingers crossed for the sensational actress and after winning the BAFTA for the same award, we hope it’s in the bag!

Twilight stars FINALLY admit they’re an item…

After months of speculation, rumours and trying to keep their unconfirmed relationship secret….Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart tell the world they are a couple at long last!

The stars of the Twilight films who play the ‘irrevocably in love’ vampire Edward Cullen and mortal Bella Swan have come clean about their relationship which they have both denied for some time. The attention surrounding the lovebirds started when filming began for the second film in the saga ‘New Moon’. Since late 2008, they have tried to avoid all public appearances together as to not rouse suspicions…but we all secretly knew right?! They have constantly reiterated they were ‘just good friends’ but heart throb Pattinson revealed all on the red carpet at this years BAFTA’s.

The former Harry Potter star said: “It is extremely difficult but we are together, yes.

‘We can’t arrive at the same time because of the fans. It goes crazy. This was supposed to be a public appearance as a couple but it’s impossible. We are here together and it’s a public event but it’s not easy.”

Wow! How long has he been itching to say that?! He must’ve also been very proud of his American girlfriend as she won the Rising Star award at the BAFTA ceremony. Despite not mentioning Pattinson in her acceptance speech, she did thank all the hardcore Twilight fans who voted for her as this specific award was voted for by the public. It was no surprise to see her take home the accolade as the Twilight saga is most definitely the phenomenon of the moment. However, I’m sure there are many a broken hearted teen (and a few adults…ahem) who will shed a tear over the recent announcement… but there’s always Taylor Lautner I suppose!

Do you know your Cullens from your Blacks? Alice’s secret power to Jane’s? Who said what in which book?! We’ve got SO many Twilight quizzes for you to play you won’t know where to start… so I’ll give you a head start! Find them all right here.

Enjoy!

2010 set be the gloomiest year ever?

2009 was the year of unemployment, busting banks and a wet summer that didn’t see the sun put his hat for long at all.

But as Britain continues to face the ‘big freeze’ and the coldest spell recorded for 20 years, it’s looking like a gloomy start to 2010. Over 1000 people from the UK and Ireland took part in a survey conducted by Triviala.com revealing that over the last decade, 30% asked were not looking forward to 2010 and cannot see the current economy taking a positive turn or recovering from the country’s state of recession.

Around a third of people said that they were basing their New Years resolutions around saving money with the usual promises of eating less chocolate, going to the gym more and curbing our bad habits taking a back seat.

Scott O Donnell, spokesman for Triviala.com said: “its not surprising the survey suggests 75% of people will be using more online discount vouchers in the coming year. We are all looking to the web for entertainment and ways to save.”

The survey also revealed that while more than half of the adults asked were looking to be taking less holidays this year, they were also expecting another rainy summer in the UK.

big freeze

However, we aren’t expecting 2010 to be completely full of doom and gloom as it seems the British public are feeling positive about our sporting stars and events this year. Still riding high on England’s 2009 Ashes win, Jenson Button with his F1 victory and the medal winning rising stars of the 2008’s Beijing Olympics, a staggering 70% of people are feeling positive and holding out for more sporting success this year. As we all know, nothing beats watching Wimbledon on ‘Murray Mount’ and cheering on England at the pub during the World Cup. The stresses of work and financial worries are put aside for those 90 minutes.

So whilst we have come to the end of the noughties and started the year knee deep in snow, all is still not lost! 2010 could be the year for change- let’s hope for more sporting celebrations with gold medals to boot and fingers crossed we are brought a hot, hot summer after surviving a icy cold winter.

Years we were not looking forward to

1. 2010

2. 2000

3. 2009

4. 2008

5. 2001

6. 2007

7. 2002

8. 2005

9. 2006

10. 2004

Simon Cowell has confirmed this year will be his last as a judge on American Idol but will be launching a US version of The X Factor.

The music mogul signed a contract with Fox network and the search for a new Leona Lewis, Joe McElderry or Alexandra Burke will begin Autumn 2011. The new venture also marks the first project Cowell is teaming up with Sir Phillip Green for, the business tycoon behind Topshop.  With the success of the UK version behind them, the multi miliionaires look to become even richer!

simon cowell x factor

Syco, the  joint production company betweeen Cowell and Sony Music own and produce the X Factor format, meaning Simon will accumulate a more substantial amount of money via The X Factor as on American Idol he was paid only as a judge. Simon’s excitement was shown last night when he said: “‘I’m thrilled that we have put a date on the launch of the U.S. version of The X Factor, and delighted to be continuing to work with Fox”.

The X Factor is shown in more than 17 countries globally and is the most popular entertainment show in the  world. The UK entertainment TV formats are fast becoming the worlds leaders. There was ‘Pop Idol’, across the pond becoming American Idol, ‘Britains Got Talent’ was so successful we now have ‘America’s Got Talent’ with old X Factor judge Sharon Osbourne holding the fort and the BBC’s ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ has been transformed into ‘Dancing with the Stars’ in the USA. Simon Cowell knows a good thing when he sees one!

Do you think stateside X Factor will be as successful as the UK’s? Will you miss Cowell on the American Idol panel?

To get you prepped and ready for a star spangled American X Factor in 2011, why not play one of our many X Factor quizzes? Test your contestants, judges and songs knowledge to the max!

10 years after Oscar winning director James Cameron made one of the biggest films of all time ‘Titanic’, he now brings to the screen the ultiamte 3D sci- fi epic:  ‘Avatar’.

Set in the future, the story revolves around Jake a paraplegic war veteran, who is brought to another planet, Pandora. He is transformed into an Avatar, like the inhabitants of Pandora called the Na’vi, a  race with their own language and culture (cue the 12 foot blue quasi- humanoid creatures with pointy ears, flat noses and ethnic dreadlocks!)  Theres also the usual Hollywood love story so all us girls don’t  have to feel left out while all the action/ fighting/ alien stuff is going on!

Avatar

The 3D spectacular reportedly cost over $300 million to make and is set to smash all box ofiice sales through the roof! The London premiere in Leicester went down a storn on thw 10th December and all the star cast turned up- Sigourney Weaver, Zoe Saldana, Michelle Rodriguez and Sam Worthington.

James Cameron himself made an appearence and said: “Finally everyone can see what this amazing cast have managed to pull off. I want to welcome everyone to the planet of Pandora”.  Cameron does mention the serious undertones concerning the film and the messages he wanted to convey about climate change and the environment. He says: ” We are causing a global climate change that’s going to be absolutely devastating to the coral reefs. Science is unable to keep up with our industrial society. We are destroying species faster than we can classify them.”

So will you be going to see the Avatar extravaganza? If its that little too cold to venture out, stay in and play some of movie quizzes on Triviala.
