Sandra Bullock swept the 40th People's Choice awards with four wins, cementing her status as a favorite among the fan-selected winners. The actress picked up awards for favorite movie actress, dramatic movie actress for "Gravity," and comedic movie actress for "The Heat." She also won favorite movie duo alongside her "Gravity" co-star George Clooney.
Speaking of Clooney, want to go on a date with him? The actor has launched a project, promising to go on a dream date with a winner randomly selected among those who donate at least 10 dollars to his Satellite Sentinel Project - an organization that monitors Sudan to help identify potential threats to civilians. The winner will join Clooney in New York City for the premiere of his film "Monuments Men" in early February - walking the red carpet with him and joining him for the VIP screening.
Chris Brown has rejected a plea deal for one count of simple assault during a hearing in Washington D.C. The singer is accused of hitting a man outside a hotel in October. One of Brown's attorneys said the singer did not accept the deal simply because he is not guilty. Brown faces up to 180 days in jail and a 1,000 dollar fine if convicted.
Finally, OutKast will reunite at this April's Coachella music festival. Big Boi and Andre 3000 will team up for the first time since 2007. Other acts slated to perform include Arcade Fire and Muse.
