The last three months of 2010 have one common trait which is getting stronger as the year inched closer to holiday season. Despite reasons to gather with family at Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year, a lot of celebrity couples chose to split. Meanwhile, the awards season were shaping up with the announcement of nominees and lots of artists were given "the most" and "-est" titles.

Through this Kaleidoscope, AceShowbiz presents the important events happening in the entertainment world in the last 12 months. Divided into quarters, the annual Kaleidoscope is published between December 28 and 31.


Having been praised for her performance in "Easy A", Emma Stone emerged as a strong contender for a female lead in untitled Spider-Man reboot among other rising stars such as Mia Wasikowska and Dianna Agron. Her red locks subsequently linked her to the role of Mary Jane. But when the studios published an official press release on October 5, it was surprisingly unveiled that she was tapped to portray another love interest of Peter Parker, a blonde girl called Gwen Stacy who once was played by Bryce Dallas Howard in Sam Raimi's "Spider-Man 3". An interesting fact which was revealed along with the announcement is that Stone actually has a natural blonde hair.
