In another world, John Krasinski would have hosted Saturday Night Live for the first time over the weekend, fulfilling a childhood dream. Instead, he posted his first Some Good News broadcast to YouTube from a Weekend Update-like desk late on Sunday, in front of a logo created by his daughters, and gave the people what they want: a reunion with his "best boss ever" from The Office, Steve Carell. Full Story

Julia Louis-Dreyfus is presenting at the Oscars this weekend – for this first time. Sunday night will mark her Oscars debut, as a guest or presenter.

When you give Jamie Foxx a microphone at the Governors Awards, and let him know he has three to four minutes to adlib remarks while in a room with this year's Oscar contenders like Tom Hanks, Leonardo DiCaprio and Scarlett Johansson, you have to know the hype-man is going to dole out the shout-outs. Full Story

Celebrity endorsements and honours will soon start flowing at an accelerated pace and we see that speed firsthand with news Renee Zellweger will receive the American Riviera Award from the Santa Barbara International Film Festival in January. Full Story
