Sandra Bullock told the media that she "didn't feel worthy" when she got her Oscar for Best Actress for her role in "The Blind Side." Bullock made the statement at the Toronto International Film Festival, where's she currently promoting her new film, "Gravity." Despite the modest comment, Bullock said she going to "spend the rest of my life hopefully earning it."
Bruno Mars is headed to the Super Bowl. The singer has been announced as the headliner for the game's half-time show. The event - the biggest and most watched event in U.S. sports - will be held in New Jersey on February 02. Mars will join a long list of A-list singers who rocked the half-time show, including Madonna, Bruce Springsteen and last year's performer, Beyonce.
Elton John is set to perform at the Emmy awards. The legendary singer will sing a tribute to Liberace. An HBO film based on Liberace's life, "Behind the Candelabra," is up for 15 awards at the Emmys, which will be handed out on September 24.
"Riddick" took the top spot at the weekend box office. The Vin Diesel film took in 18.7 million dollars at North American theaters, knocking "Lee Daniels' The Butler" down to number two. "Riddick's" take was an impressive haul, but fell far short of most industry predictions, which had estimated that the film would earn upwards of 20 million dollars.
