Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner
Think Twilight influences pop culture? Check out the 2010 list of the most popular baby names.
The Social Security Administration revealed on the Today show Isabella was the top name for girls last year, while Jacob was the most popular name among boys. Isabella, called Bella for short, is the lead character in the Twilight book series and is portrayed by Kristen Stewart on-screen. While Bella's vampire boyfriend Edward, played by Robert Pattinson, didn't make the cut, Bella's best friend-werewolf Jacob (Taylor Lautner) did. The series' fans are either in the Team Edward or Team Jacob camp, but clearly Team Jacob won in the baby-naming arena.
Pack your bags, kid.

The Academy of Television Arts and Sciences reached a $66 million deal with ABC, CBS, Fox and NBC that extends their TV contract through 2018.
Under the agreement, the four networks will continue to air the awards ceremony in a rotation, with Fox kicking off the cycle this year. The academy will get an increase in the license fee from the networks totaling about $8.25 million per ceremony. The previous deal, which expired this year, entitled the academy to $7.5 million.
The new eight-year deal also allows that, beginning in 2012, each year's designated network, along with the academy, can review the number of awards given and how they're presented. The move is an effort to shorten the telecast because of a recent decline in ratings.
