Love of a good stunningly gorgeous woman convinced Sean Penn to give up his 65 guns. Never mind the guns; who is this persuasive woman, you might ask? Oh just his new girlfriend, Charlize Theron. (Celebitchy)

Lookout JLaw, Kristin Stewart is coming after your man. Drake Doremus (Like Crazy) just hired Stewart to star opposite Nicholas Hoult in Equals, an updated version of Orwell’s 1984. Since Lawrence turned down the role first, she has no one to blame but herself. (Huffpo)

Which is better, Seinfeld or Curb Your Enthusiasm? I mean, I love Seinfeld, but once I saw Curb, Jerry and Co. paled. Okay, I can’t pick! (Unreality)

Out with the old, in with the new, and Showtime’s Penny Dreadful is the new (spring) show I’m most excited over; “A sychosexual thriller featuring literary characters,” and starring Timothy Dalton, Billie Piper, Rory Kinnear, Helen McCrory, Simon Russell Beale, Josh Hartnett, Eva Green, Danny Sapani, Reeve Carney and Harry Treadaway. Here’s the first little tease (Film School Rejects):

I guess since Tina and Amy refuse to host the Academy Awards, producers had to settle for the next best thing: Superheroes. A mental Marvel connection probably isn’t a bad last ditch effort to get people watching. The 86th Oscars will also celebrate movie, real life and animated heroes, and producers promise “there will be no shortage of comedy” with host Ellen DeGeneres. (via Slashfilm)

Speaking of superheroes and the Oscars, Chris Hemsworth and Academy president,Cheryl Boone Isaacs will announce nominations this Thursday, January 16th. (Oscars)

Would you rather fight 100 duck-sized horses, or 1 horse-sized duck? Bruce Springsteen really thinks about, and gives a great answer. (Uproxx)

Alan Becker has been recreating Hayao Miyazaki’s Spirited Away in Minecraft, and the results are simply gorgeous. (Alan Becker via Laughing Squid)

The American Horror Story ladies gathered to bewitch the Golden Globes (holy shit, Angela Bassett), and I just love this photo. (Go Fug Yourself)


As if Gillian Anderson wasn’t already squashing all the competition (is there any?), what with hit shows here and abroad (Hannibal, The Fall), she’s shooting a new series as well (Crisis), and now she’s announced she’ll author a science fiction series. EarthEnd Saga is a collaboration between Anderson and Jeff Rovin (Tom Clancy’s Op-Center series, Back to the Batcave) featuring a child psychiatrist heroine. (EW)

Is Beyonce now the world’s biggest feminist? (Dlisted)

If you’ve already watched the 25 Best Series on Netflix, Dustin has the next 25 you should tackle. (Warming Glow)

How much better might things have gone if only Jesse and Walt had made these? (Boing Boing)

Do we really need a Doctor Who/Friends intro mash-up? Yes, yes we do. (via The Mary Sue)

Cindy Davis, (Twitter) is impatiently awaiting Mr. Capaldi’s arrival (via mechanical horse, of course).
