With The Dark Knight Rises premiering around the globe, we're being treated to an onslaught of Anne Hathaway's feminine brand of red-carpet glamour. The actress is working with her Les Misérables-induced pixie cut by countering with the most flirtatious and feminine of gowns, showing off a peplum-trimmed Givenchy sheath for one appearance, a fringed Stella McCartney the next. Yesterday, Anne took a turn for the ethereal in a white, draped, and peplum-adorned Prabal Gurung Resort '13 confection for the film's NYC premiere; today, she stepped out in London in a floral-collared, gold-beaded Gucci halter dress. Click on to see Anne light up the premiere circuit in her latest looks.

As we come to the close of another year, I've been counting down the best in entertainment from over the past 12 months. But let's not forget that we're also celebrating the end of the decade, so you know what that means — a recap of the top music, movies, and TV from 2000-2009! There have been so many creative, smart, and fun choices to keep me busy that it's hard to decide which ones deserve top honors. So beginning with films, here are my favorites, in no particular order. (If you don't agree — or if you'd like to submit your own top five, 10, or 20 — you can do so in the Buzz Best of the Decade Group)!
It's that time of year again! The Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Horror Films handed out the Saturn Awards last night to honor the best actors, movies, and TV shows in these genres. It's a lot for one awards show to cover, but these awards honored some great entertainment that doesn't always get mainstream attention.
Of course, some blockbusters got recognized, too: The Dark Knight took home lots of awards, including another honor for the late Heath Ledger. Iron Man also did very well, with Robert Downey Jr. nabbing the award for best actor and Jon Favreau for director. I love that even the little vampire movie Let the Right One In scored an award. Battlestar Galactica made a splash in the television categories, winning three awards.

Now that Christian Bale has lit up the big screen for another Summer blockbuster in Terminator Salvation, tell me: How do you like your Bale? As the gravel-voiced Bruce Wayne of the Batman movies? Or as the intense leader, John Connor, in a futuristic Terminator world?

One of my favorite films of last year, The Dark Knight unquestionably shines with the performance of Heath Ledger as the Joker, nominated for Best Supporting Actor. The film's up for a slew of other nominations that I'm really interested in because of their technical slants, like Best Cinematography, Film Editing, Sound, Sound Editing, and Visual Effects.
That's not just why the Batman sequel was a geek's dream; it featured the Nokia Tube as Lucius Fox's cell, and a couple pivotal scenes centered around cell phone communication as a plot device.
A cell phone being inside one of the thugs was particularity gruesome, while the scene with Rachel Dawes' and Harvey Dent's last cell conversation was heartbreaking. But not even their intensity can beat the staggering image of the city's 3D view of the cell phone network that would finally lead Bruce Wayne to his mark.

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
In the months leading up to today's announcement, there was talk that The Dark Knight might actually nab a Best Picture nomination. Do you agree with the five movies selected for this category? Do you think The Dark Knight is deserving of a nod from the Academy? If so, which of the above movies would you bump in order to include it?

Slumdog Millionaire was the big winner Thursday at the Critics' Choice Awards, taking home the trophy for Best Picture as well as several other awards. The film won five awards in all, including trophies for its director, star, and composer.

The film will be up for more honors tonight at the Critics' Choice Awards and again on Sunday at the Golden Globes. We'll have to wait a few more weeks to hear about Oscar nods, but tell us — do you think The Dark Knight will sweep the awards it's nominated for?
The Dark Knight's crazy box office success translated into a whole bundle of People's Choice Awards on Wednesday night. The film took home the trophies for Favorite Movie, Favorite Action Movie, and Favorite Cast, and Christian Bale also won Favorite Superhero and part of the Favorite On-Screen Matchup award (shared with the late Heath Ledger).
Carrie Underwood was another big winner of the night, taking home three awards — including the Favorite Star Under 35 trophy. She also won the awards for Favorite Female Singer and Favorite Country Song.
