The skies may have been clear, but it was raining men on the red carpet outside Regal Cinemas L.A. Live on Sunday night as the eye-candy stars of Steven Soderbergh's new highly anticipated male-stripper extravaganza, Magic Mike — Channing Tatum, Matthew McConaughey, Alex Pettyfer, Joe Manganiello, Matt Bomer and Adam Rodriguez — showed up wearing suits and tuxes that unfortunately didn't snap off.
It was one of the nail-biters of the 2012 Oscars: would the already legendary actress Meryl Streep, 62, take away the Best Actress Academy Award for her transformation into Margaret Thatcher in The Iron Lady, or would she be beaten out by contenders Glenn Close (Albert Nobbs), Viola Davis (The Help), Rooney Mara (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo), and Michelle Williams (My Week with Marilyn)? When last year's Best Actor winner Colin Firth announced Streep as the winner, there was a mixed bag of reactions about the victory — Streep's first since her Sophie's Choice win in 1982, three decades ago.
Leading up the highlight of awards season, the Academy Awards nominees for 2012 have been announced, and there aren't too many surprises this time around. The Martin Scorsese adventure flick, Hugo, led the pack, nabbing 11 nominations, including Best Director and Best Picture.

In the run-up to the announcement of the Academy Award nominees on January 24, a new list of the best movies of the year — this time by the Producers Guild of America — has shaken up the list of frontrunners for Best Picture.
Though David Fincher's The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, starring Daniel Craig and Rooney Mara has been one of the most talked-about films of the holiday season, its box office release was a real downer, as it was blown away by Brad Bird's Mission: Impossible — Ghost Protocol, starring Tom Cruise and Jeremy Renner, which topped the four-day holiday weekend figures (Friday - Monday) with $46.
Two films that are being released this week — David Fincher's The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and Steven Spielberg's The Adventures of Tintin — have gotten largely positive reviews all around, but they are both notable for another reason: they boast stellar opening credit sequences.
With a leading role in David Fincher's upcoming The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (and a Best Actress Golden Globe nomination), Rooney Mara is a name on everyone's lips. But issuing from Mara's own lips are a few words of negativity about where the actress, 26, got her start.
Daniel Craig, 43, and Rooney Mara, 26, stood out on the red carpet in their respective black and white formal wear for the world debut of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo in London's Odeon Leicester Square on Monday night.
If you're one of the many Stieg Larsson crime novel fans who has been looking forward to the American theatrical version of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, your wait is almost over.
