Son of God, the pared-down feature-film version of the History Channel miniseries The Bible, had an impressive debut at the box office this weekend, taking in $26.5 million, Box Office Mojo reports. But it wasn't able to best Liam Neeson's action thriller Non-Stop, which landed at No. 1 with $30 million.
With the Oscars fast approaching, it's time to finalize your bets on which films will take home the night's top prizes.
Ahead of the night's broadcast, ABC enlisted ESPN number-crunchers Nate Silver and Walter Hickey to analyze some trends from past years. Among their findings: New York City is the most popular setting for Oscar nominees, husband-and-wife pairings are the relationships most often depicted in nominated films, and the most common cinema trope among past nominees is a good old-fashioned face slap.
Steve McQueen, Brad Pitt, Angela Bassett
12 Years a Slave was the big winner at Saturday's Independent Spirit Awards.
The front-runner for Best Picture at Sunday's Academy Awards won five awards, including Best Feature, Best Director (Steve McQueen) and Best Supporting Actress (Lupita Nyong'o).
Will Smith, Jaden Smith
Sunday's Academy Awards will recognize the greatest achievements in filmmaking from the past year, but Saturday's Razzie Awards did just the opposite.
Highlighting the worst that cinema had to offer in 2013, the annual Razzies singled out Movie 43 and After Earth, among others.
Saturday Night Live has been on hiatus for a month... and this is the best they could come up with?
The episode that marked the debut of Seth Meyers' replacement Colin Jost at the "Weekend Update" desk was disappointingly low on laughs, featuring one-joke sketches that went on too long (see: Aidy Bryant's hefty Tinkerbell stand-in "Tonkerbell"). Even Kate McKinnon's typically hilarious Ellen impersonation was a bit lackluster. As far as "Weekend Update," there are of course going to be some growing pains in that department but... we miss Seth already.
Jillian Michaels, Rachel Frederickson
Biggest Loser trainer Jillian Michaels admits she was shocked when she saw how much weight Season 15 winner Rachel Frederickson had lost.
"I was stunned," Michaels said on HuffPost Live. "Nobody told me like, 'Oh hey, Rachel is very, very thin.' Bob [Harper] and I had no idea. Nobody had told us. Nobody had said anything to us. So yes, I was stunned. Obviously, I thought she had lost too much weight."
Amanda Bynes resurfaced on Twitter Saturday, sending a short message to her supporters while also deleting some controversial tweets she made in the past.
Life has come full circle for Nick Lachey. The singer often visited MTV's TRL studios 15 years ago to perform or promote his boy band 98 Degrees. Starting Monday, Lachey will return to the studio that launched his career, but this time, he'll be the one asking the questions as the new host of VH1's Big Morning Buzz Live.
