The Los Angeles County Medical Examiner has released the official report on the death of Paul Walker. The report doesn't shed any real new information, as it had been previously reported that the actor died from "the combined effects of traumatic and thermal injuries." The report does indicate that Walker was burned severely, had multiple fractures, and that his body was found in a defensive position, as if he were bracing for impact. The Writers Guild of America has announced the nominations for their annual award and "American Hustle" is one of the five films up for best original screenplay. It will go up against "Blue Jasmine," "Dallas Buyers Club," "Her," and "Nebraska." On the adapted screenplay side, "August: Osage County" got a nod. It will compete against "Before Midnight," "Captain Phillips," "Lone Survivor," and "The Wolf of Wall Street." Finally, Jennifer Hudson gave her assistant a really extravagant Christmas gift. The Oscar-winning actress and singer bought her personal assistant a house for the holidays. Hudson has been close friends with her assistant since elementary school.
