Today's News: Our Take


ON THE MOVE

Is Monday the new Sunday? HBO certainly hopes so. In an effort to jump-start a new night of original programming, the pay cabler will shift the fifth and final season of Six Feet Under to Monday nights when the show returns in June, Variety reports. The move comes as HBO's hold on Sunday night is slipping. Airing opposite Desperate Housewives, Carniv&#224le has been averaging just 1.7 million viewers this season. So that explains why "Management" was in such a foul mood last week. (That's a little inside joke for us Carniv&#224le buffs.) read more

PURRFECT DISASTER

And the award for Good Sport of the Year goes to... Halle Berry! The Oscar champ was dishonored as the worst actress of 2004 at Saturday's Golden Raspberry Award Foundation for her performance in Catwoman — and she actually showed up to accept her trophy! "I want to thank Warner Bros. for casting me in this piece of s---," she cracked, clutching her Razzie in one hand and her 2002 Oscar for Monster's Ball in the other. Catwoman also "won" worst picture, worst directing and worst screenplay. The Razzies elected President Bush worst actor for his career-defining turn in Michael Moore's Fahrenheit 9/11, one of four awards the doc earned. Congratulations to all the losers! read more

NO, REALLY?

Nine months after her "hush-hush" nups, Jennifer Lopez is finally confirming that she and Marc Anthony are indeed husband and wife. "Yes, we're married," she tells People. "I mean, come on, everyone knows. It's not a secret." In a wacky coincidence, Lopez's on-the-record acknowledgment comes just days before her new album, Rebirth, hits stores. What are the odds? read more

SPOILER ALERT

Fox's MADtv is exposing the big mystery behind ABC's Lost the only way it knows how — with a dead-on parody. On Saturday's show, the plane-crash survivors — as channeled by the MADtv troupe — will learn that they've been stranded on Survivor island when they run into special guest star Jeff Probst. In true Lost tradition, the skit will probe Jeff's back story via flashback. Keep your eyes peeled for a cameo by one Colby Donaldson. read more

NO TWO WAYS ABOUT IT

Sideways was the toast of Hollywood's indie community Saturday, winning six Independent Spirit Awards, including best picture, best director for Alexander Payne and best lead actor for Paul Giamatti (take that Oscar.)

IT'S A KNOCKOUT!

Clint Eastwood's boxing saga Million Dollar Baby KO'd an Aviator sweep at Sunday's Academy Awards, winning best picture, best actress for Hilary Swank, best supporting actor for Morgan Freeman and best director for Eastwood. Martin Scorsese's Howard Hughes epic flew off with a field-best five Oscars, including best supporting actress for Cate Blanchett. (Try again next year, Marty.)
