No New Evidence Found in Natalie Wood Case

Originally posted 01/11/2012 10:25AM

The official cause of Natalie Wood's 1981 death remains accidental drowning, as investigators say they have found nothing to dispute that in the two months since they re-opened the case.

"At this point, it is an accidental death," William McSweeney, chief of detectives for the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department, tells the Los Angeles Times. "Nothing has been discovered to suggest changing that at this time."

The case has not been closed, but McSweeney said it is unlikely anything new will be uncovered about death of the actress, who was 43 when she died.

Joke's on whom? Christopher Walken kept his table entertained at Chateau Marmont in West Hollywood, playing to a group that included Colin Farrell, Sam Rockwell and Tom Waits. A few of the guys split several bottles of red wine and a few cups of coffee, holding court on the patio from 8:30 p.m. until midnight. As the party wound down, Rockwell and Walken left the venue together, and made plans to hang out again soon. – Jennifer Garcia

Christopher Walken Honored at Harvard: What a Drag

Originally posted 02/15/2008 11:00PM

Charlize Theron got hers on Feb. 7 – and shook to show her appreciation – while on Friday, Christopher Walken got his: a Hasty Pudding pot.

The annual Harvard trophies, awarded to those who've made a "lasting and impressive contribution to the world of entertainment," are dispensed by the university's Hasty Pudding Theatricals, the nation's oldest undergraduate drama troupe.

Walken, 64, an Oscar winner for 1978's The Deer Hunter, said he was "amazed and thrilled" by the Man of the Year accolade, even if a bit embarrassed by the student in drag who sang to him before the pot was handed over, reports the Associated Press.

Oscars are one thing, but Charlize Theron and Christopher Walken will soon have something equally golden for their mantles: Hasty Pudding pots.

The annual Harvard trophies, awarded to those who've made a "lasting and impressive contribution to the world of entertainment," are dispensed by the university's Hasty Pudding Theatricals, the nation's oldest undergraduate drama troupe.

The ceremony traditionally involves a parade and male students dressed as women. The recipients last year were Ben Stiller and Scarlett Johansson, preceded in 2006 by Halle Berrry and Richard Gere.

This year, Monster Oscar winner Theron, 32, gets her Pudding pot (as the prize is called) Feb. 7; Walken, 64, whose Oscar was for The Deer Hunter and who last year was married to John Travolta (in Hairspray), gets his Feb. 15.

Not to be outdone, Harvard Lampoon's "Hastiest Pudding of the Lampoon Award" is being given out on Feb. 6, to Paris Hilton, reports the Associated Press.
