83rd Annual Academy Awards
I was on the edge of the sofa until the end of the ceremony but – as expected – The King’s Speech won almost all the major Academy Awards. The film took Best Original Screenplay, Best Actor, Best Director and – the biggest prize – Best Picture.
Colin Firth won Best Actor and Natalie Portman won Best Actress for her role in Black Swan. The Social Network and Inception also scooped plenty of awards overnight.
Most Played Film Track
Rule The World by Take That from the film Stardust is the most played track from a film according to new research from PPL. The research includes plays on the radio, in shops and pubs & clubs.
Second place went to Dirty Dancing track Bill Medley & Jennifer Warnes with The Time Of My Life and Pure Shores by All Saints from The Beach came third.

In the least desirable next door neighbour leagues Katie Price (Jordan), Jedward and Gillian McKeith came out on top.

The Oscars 2011
The Oscar nominations are announced this afternoon and I look forward to hearing the top movies up for Oscars from 2010. I went to see Colin Firth in the King’s Speech last night – a superb film – fully deserving of a few nominations this afternoon. If you’d like an alternative to the Hollywood backslapping check out the Razzies (awards for the worst films, actors and actresses).
How Much Coffee is Too Much?
Starbucks in the US have announced the invention of a Trenta cup. It comes in at 916ml of pure coffee in one serving. The drink contains 447 calories (that’s almost a Sunday Roast in a cup!) How much coffee do you drink a day and how much is too much?
