South Park Predicted the Mel Gibson Meltdown

Who knew the folks over at South Park were so ahead of their time?  Actually, I think everyone knew that.  Back in 2004, shortly after Passion of the Christ, South Park dedicated an episode to Mel Gibson’s insanity.  With Radar Online’s release of the Mel Gibson tapes, it’s only fitting to play a clip from South Park so that they get a little credit.  Watch below.

People Magazine v. Us Magazine: Who Ripped Who Off?

I’m not sure which magazine you will buy this weekend, considering they are exactly the same!  I realize that all of the tabloids are covering Sandra Bullock, but Us Magazine and People Magazine pretty much have the exact same cover, right down to the picture of Sandra Bullock.  How is it possible that out of all the Sandra Bullock pictures out there, the two leading magazines picked the same one?  Someone is guilty, and I want to know who it is.  Even the color choices are the same!  Click on the links below and judge for yourself.  As an aside, this issue was addressed in the film ’13 Going on 30′ once, and the magazine names were changed for the film.  Fast forward to the 3:30 mark in the clip below to see what I am talking about.

Oscar Ambush: Elinor Burkett Crashes the Stage

If you watched the Oscars, you might have noticed a very odd woman’s acceptance speech for Best Documentary Short. Here’s the story: ‘Music By Prudence’ is a documentary directed by Roger Ross Williams. Elinor Burkett was originally a producer on the film, but she was sacked due to “creative differences.” Because she had already done some work on the film prior to being sacked, the Academy had to give her a producer credit. At the time of the Oscars, she and Roger Ross Williams were no longer speaking. Technically, only one person was supposed to give an acceptance speech for the film. It’s not clear if it was decided in advance by the Academy that Williams would give the speech. However, Williams sprinted to the stage first and began his speech. He was then ambushed by Burkett. Burkett claims that Williams’ mother tried to trip her with a cane so that she could not reach the stage. Insane. Watch the moment ensue below.
