[YOUTUBE "imW392e6XR0"] Jimmy Kimmel brought back his fantastic Celebrities Read Mean Tweets About Themselves segment Wednesday night, with a shocking twist. This time, a surprising number of the mean Tweets were actually ... good?

Sure, there were the requisite amounts of unfathomable abuse – why does Andy Garcia, of all people, have haters? – and impenetrable obscenities (particularly the ones aimed at Matthew McConaughey). But other Tweets showed a heretofore-unobserved level of wit that made their targets suppress a chuckle. Even David Blaine thought that David Blaine joke was pretty solid!

Oscars 2012: Who Should Win Best Actor?

Originally posted 02/26/2012 04:20PM

In this year's Best Actor category, the snubs may have gotten more attention than the actual nominees.

Many Oscar-watchers thought Michael Fassbender would be nominated for Shame, Leonardo DiCaprio for J. Edgar and Ryan Gosling for The Ides of March. But none of those heartthrobs made the cut.

Instead, George Clooney (The Descendants) is pitted against is his good pal Brad Pitt (Moneyball), The Artist's breakout star Jean Dujardin, character actor Gary Oldman and Demián Bichir for A Better Life.

Pop quiz: What annual awards show airs this Sunday night? If you're as into the Oscars as we are, you likely just yawned and said, "Easiest. Question. Ever." And you'd be right.

Now, let's try a few more challenging questions. Which of the current crop of Best Actress hopefuls honeymooned at George Clooney's Italian villa? The Help's Jessica Chastain earned a scholarship to Julliard funded by which Oscar-winning comedian? War Horse composer John Williams's son sang for which classic rock band?

Snubs, What Snubs? PEOPLE Critic Takes on the Oscar Nods

Oscar Nominations: PEOPLE Critic's Take

Originally posted 01/24/2012 02:00PM

Nominations are out for the 84th Academy Awards. Here is PEOPLE Magazine critic Alynda Wheat's take on what went down at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.

Hugo?! Fine, Hugo.
Leading the pack with 11 nominations is Martin Scorsese's kids movie that's not actually for kids. I confess that I still don't get it. Technically, Hugo is a triumph (you'll notice that the vast majority of its nominations are for technical awards), and Scorsese's nod for Best Director is certainly justified. But as a movie-going experience I still think it's remarkably cold (lectures about film history don't really move me). For my money, it's still a race between the French silent film The Artist and The Descendants, starring George Clooney, who did get nominated and Shailene Woodley, who missed the cut. Which brings me to my next point:

Snubs? What snubs?
Okay, sure, Golden Globe nominee Woodley might be a tad disappointed, as might Albert Brooks (Drive), Michael Fassbender (Shame), Tilda Swinton (We Need to Talk About Kevin) and even Steven Spielberg, whose amazing animated The Adventures of Tintin didn't rate a Best Animated Film nod, and who wasn't on the Best Directors list, in spite of the fact that his War Horse is a Best Picture nominee. But are these omissions actually snubs? Not really.

Daughter Matilda Was Heath's Focus on Dark Knight Set

Heath Ledger's maniacal twist on the Joker in The Dark Knight in no way resembled his true character off set – that of a proud father to his 2-year-old daughter, Matilda, his costars say.

"Because he died people want a dark story [that] he was so obsessed with the character, he was so contaminated by the Joker and he couldn't sleep and all of that stuff," said costar Gary Oldman, who plays Lt. Jim Gordon in the film, adding that wasn't the case.

"In between takes he would sit on the curbside and smoke a cigarette and laugh and talk about his daughter Matilda," added Oldman Sunday at the press day for the film. "I thought he was just a beautiful kid. I thought he was just wonderful. I had a real affection for him.
