Rumor has it, or at least according to Extra, that former child-wonder (She's now 14) Dakota Fanning may have been offered the role of Jane, the Volturi vampire in the "Twilight" sequel, "New Moon."
This is great news if it's true!
I love Dakota Fanning, and I believe her acting prowess will benefit "New Moon' greatly! And I can truly see her as Jane, one of the most powerful vampires and an enemy of the lovebirds, Bella and Edward!
Dakota as an evil villain? Rock On!
Also in "New Moon" news, Vanessa Hudgens is supposed to have auditioned for the role of one of the werewolves!
Huh? Vanessa still auditions even with her "High School Musical" cred? I guess to prove to hiring studios she can act, and not just sing and dance and look pretty...
Reportedly, Ashley Greene, who plays Alice Cullen, told MTV at a Golden Globes afterparty that Hudgens has actually auditioned for the role.
Did Ashley mean to spill the beans? And is this story really true? Stay tuned, we'll go investigate now

First we have FOX's "Alvin & the Chipmunks," now, get ready for "Tom and Jerry."
I used to love this cartoon when I was a kid, and to this day, I'll take a look at it, giggle a little, when it's on.
Warner Bros. is turning the beloved cartoon classic into a CG spectacle with a live-action twist!
Didn't FOX try this with "Garfield" before and failed? Have no fear "Tom and Jerry" fans, the writer behind this project is Eric Gravning who seemed to have a good, creative background.
One of his scrips called "B-Minor" has Ron Howard attached to direct. So, that's a good sign.
Read the full story right here.

"Wall-E" scored 6 Oscar nominations including Best Animated Feature, Best Original Screenplay, Best Achievement in sound editing, Best Achievement in sound mixing, Best Achievement in music, and Best Original Song.
So what does "Wall-E" director have to say about all the love?
"We are ecstatic and grateful for the Academy's generous and humbling recognition of ‘WALL•E.’ It is an honor and privilege to make films at Pixar, where we have grown into a great, big family. This is a tribute to all of us at Pixar and Disney who do our best to make films, not just animated films, but films for everyone that just happen to be animated."
--Andrew Stanton, Director of "WALL•E"

So many snubs, so little time. And yeah, the greatest crime of all was "The Dark Knight" got ignored! Ignored! And Bruce Springsteen's harrowing song for "The Wrestler" snubbed? Que Horror!
Dev Patel for "Slumdog Millionaire," Clint Eastwood's performance for "Gran Torino," "Let the Right One In" for Foreign Language Film, and so on and so forth.
So I did some sleuthing, and found this article from Variety! The headline? Oscar Voting System Deciphered!
Yeah, how do Academy members really vote? And how do PricewaterhouseCoopers really tally the votes?
Well, click here, it's a good read, you'll feel better!
