James Franco and Michelle Williams
Oz The Great and Powerful set a record for 2013 in its opening weekend, netting $80.2 million and soaring to a No. 1 position by a landslide. It's the strongest debut for a movie since The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey opened with $84 million back in December, Box Office Mojo reports.
Actor. Author. Artist. Director. Oscars host. James Franco has many impressive titles to his name and now he's adding another — activitist.

His fans are thrilled, except for the ones who are totally pissed. Emmy winner Steve Burton made big news — and crushed a lot of hearts — last fall when he left his role as General Hospital mob man Jason Morgan and moved to Nashville. So how come he's back in L.A. and working at The Young and the Restless a mere three months later? Burton hits the CBS soap Jan. 29 as war vet Dylan McAvoy, the supposedly-dead ex of Avery Clark (Jessica Collins). TV Guide Magazine caught up with Burton to get the deets on this head-scratching career move. This star has some 'splainin' to do!
Tina Fey and Amy Poehler
"You can smell the pills from here." Live, from the Beverly Hilton Ballroom, it's ... Sunday with Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, together again and keeping things as lively as possible as hosts of the 70th Golden Globes. Encore, please. (For a list of winners, go here.)
This week, Jimmy Kimmel made an impressive debut in his new 11:35 p.m. timeslot (despite the fact that Jennifer Aniston destroyed his set), James Franco lips-ynced to Justin Bieber and filmed it, celebrities read mean tweets about themselves, and Al Roker admitted to pooping his pants. In non-celebrity news, a soldier dressed up like Spider-man to surprise his son, an amateur duo performed a rap medley in their underwear, and a bunch of fast food workers were scared out of their wits by what appeared to be an in invisible driver. Check out these clips and more in this week's Top Videos.
In one of the most bizarre collaborations, Lindsay Lohan and James Franco have joined forces for R.E.M's latest music video.
Directed by Franco, "Blue" features images of controversial photographer Terry Richardson photographing the actress in her best sexy hipster gear, which are intercut with shots of Los Angeles that are so erratic they make your head spin.
If you haven't heard the news yet, Seth MacFarlane is hosting the Oscars.
It's a bold, surprising selection, especially since the Family Guy, American Dad and Cleveland Show creator has little to do with films, has no hosting experience and is literally not a famous face. But after you get through the initial shock, MacFarlane is almost an inspired choice by the Academy.
Don't believe us? Here are six reasons why MacFarlane is a good choice to emcee Hollywood's biggest night.
Stone Cold is outta here! Emmy Award winner and über-fan fave Steve Burton has decided to end his run as heartthrob hit man Jason Morgan on the ABC soap General Hospital, a role he has played since 1991. TV Guide Magazine got the exclusive scoop.
Jill Farren Phelps
In a long overdue shakeup at daytime's No. 1 soap, The Young and the Restless, Maria Bell is out as executive producer-head writer and former General Hospital chief Jill Farren Phelps is in the house! Phelps takes the EP gig while Josh Griffith, who stepped in and kept Y&R afloat during the 2007-2008 Writers Guild strike, is back as head writer. Their first official episode will air Oct. 12. No exec on the suds scene is more credentialed and trophied than Phelps, a seven-time Emmy winner who has helmed a record six daytime dramas. And no one is more polarizing. TV Guide Magazine had an exclusive chat with the controversial lady, who addressed the firestorm of rumors and reports currently circulating on the Web.
