'American Idol' in Denver: Jack Black Clone, Pretty Hair and Bikini Boy

February 03, 2010 04:48:18 GMT


"American Idol" visited Denver as the last stop in the audition round, coming up with 26 hopefuls. The first auditioner of the day was Mark Labriola who claimed at least once a day people tell him he looks like Jack Black. Before he got to sing, Simon Cowell asked him to mention one interesting thing about him. Mark said his mother took him away from his father when he was 4, making them kind of fugitive. Simon then irritated Kara DioGuardi with his questions to Mark about the family. Nevertheless, Mark got 4 votes of yes.

Two more people earned the golden tickets through unanimous votes but it was not the case with Casey James. Victoria Adams, who is back in the judging seat, wanted him to let his hair down while Kara wanted him to unbutton his shirt. Simon said he has no charisma but the girls disagreed. It was up to Randy Jackson, who later sided on the girls.

James Cameron is convinced his sci-fi epic "Avatar" will lose out at the upcoming Academy Awards, but hopes his ex-wife Kathryn Bigelow takes home the Best Picture Oscar instead. Cameron's blockbuster will go up against Bigelow's gritty war drama "The Hurt Locker" for the coveted prize at the upcoming ceremony in March, along with eight other films including "Up in the Air", "The Blind Side" and "Precious: Based on the Novel PUSH by Sapphire".

The moviemaker will also compete with his former spouse for the Best Director Oscar, but he's convinced Academy bosses will overlook "Avatar" because of his previous behavior at the famous event. Cameron is adamant Oscar bosses weren't impressed with his speech when he picked up the Best Director trophy for "Titanic" in 1998, in which he quoted one of the film's famous lines, telling the crowd, "I'm king of the world!"

Richards was reportedly spurred on to quit after watching his bandmate Ronnie Wood, who is said to have checked into rehab for the eighth time last month, struggle with his addiction to booze.

February 03, 2010 03:19:48 GMT


Colin Firth is ignoring the Oscar buzz surrounding his performance in new film "A Single Man" - because he's "too old" to get carried away with the hype. The Brit is one of the favorites to land a Best Actor nod when the Academy Awards nominations are announced in Hollywood on Tuesday, February 2, 2010, for his role as gay professor George Falconer, a man struggling to cope with the death of his lover.

But despite the acclaim he has already received for the film, Firth insists he doesn't dream about taking home a golden statuette, because he was once left "shattered" when he failed to win at an awards ceremony. He tells London's Metro newspaper, "God knows (if I'll win). I'm trying not to think about it. You don't know how much you've vested in something until you have a disappointment."
