Minnie Driver, Ellen DeGeneres
This week, kids got together to film their own versions of the Best Picture Oscar nominees, with hilariously adorable results. Also adorable in a non-hilarious way: a paralyzed French bulldog learned to walk with the help of some prosthetic feet. In celebrity news, Ellen DeGeneres and Minnie Driver auditioned for Downton Abbey, Josh Groban saluted Jimmy Kimmel's 2,000th episode, and Fred Armisen and Jimmy Fallon paid tribute to The Beatles. And Netflix got in a few jabs at its competitor Amazon with a parody advertisement of its new "Drone to Home" DVD delivery service.
