(For a list of nominees in the major categories, go here.)

The First Trailer for Dumb and Dumber To Is Exactly What You'd Expect

Some things really never change.

The first trailer for Dumb and Dumber To is every bit as crass, absurd and distasteful as the original. But isn't that what we want?

Surprising celebrity roommates

Taking nostalgia to the extreme, Harry and Lloyd haven't changed one bit since we last saw them 20 years ago. Except for the fact that Harry discovers he has a long-lost daughter, which is really just an excuse for Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels to take their gross-out antics on the road again.

Aaron Sorkin Apologizes for The Newsroom: "I'd Like to Start Over"

Aaron Sorkin says he'd like to apologize to people who may have misinterpreted his intentions with his HBO series The Newsroom.

"I think you and I got off on the wrong foot with The Newsroom and I apologize and I'd like to start over," Sorkin told the audience at a Tribeca Film Festival event Monday, referencing the criticism over his choice to set the show in the recent past.
