Oprah for Senator?

Say what you want about Rod Blagojevich, but the man knows how to cause a public ruckus. After hitting the airwaves with various startling pronouncements, like his self-comparisons to Martin Luther King Jr. and Gandhi, the beleaguered Illinois governor revealed on “Good Morning America” on Monday that he had considered offering Oprah Winfrey the U.S. Senate seat vacated by President Barack Obama.

Yo-Yo Ma Cello-Synced at Inauguration

In their defense, it was almost impossible for Yo-Yo Ma and Itzhak Perlman to actually play their instruments at Barack Obama’s inauguration ceremony, because of the frigid weather, but it turns out that Ma, Perlman and the other two musicians who accompanied them at Tuesday’s event were performing in sync with a recording of John Williams’ commemorative arrangement.

What’s a former secretary of state to do once her time in the White House runs out? In Condoleezza Rice’s case, the next step in the “reinvention and evolution” of her professional life involves signing on at the William Morris Agency, according to Variety.

Yet Another Oscar Snoozer?

Well, the Academy has spoken, picking this year’s Oscar nominees, and they couldn’t be safer or more boring ... except for those categories in which “Milk” figures in somewhere. At least that’s what the San Francisco Chronicle’s completely unimpressed critic Mick LaSalle thinks.

Celeb-Fest 2009 Continues in Washington

If Sunday’s concert extravaganza, featuring such boldfaced musical acts as U2 (channeling U2 from 25 years ago), Stevie Wonder and Mary J. Blige, didn’t provide enough glitz for one inaugural bash, several dozen of their celebrity peers are following the spotlight to Washington, D.C., to join in the festivities.

Moore May Face Lawsuit Over Iraq Photo

A photograph of an American soldier cradling a mortally wounded Iraqi girl in his arms has become the source of potential trouble for Michael Moore. Apparently without photographer Michael Yon’s permission to use the picture, the filmmaker featured the image on his Web site in a way that Yon found objectionable.

Stars to Come Out in Force for Obama

Barack Obama has been known to roll with the celebrity set (paging Oprah Winfrey), so perhaps it’s only fitting that his inaugural festivities will begin on Sunday with a show at the Lincoln Memorial replete with boldfaced names and HBO at the ready to showcase the event.

Marvel Makes Obama’s Nerdy Dreams Come True

Marvel Comics enjoyed quite a moment of free publicity last year when the Barack Obama camp released a list of previously little-known factoids about the candidate mentioning that he collected “Spider-Man” comics in his youth, and now the comic company is giving the president-elect a creative show of gratitude.

Bollywood Does Bush

“The President Is Coming,” an Indian mockumentary opening this weekend in the subcontinent, tells the story of six contestants fighting for “the greatest prize”—a chance to shake the hand of George W. Bush. Needless to say, it’s a comedy.

It’s ‘Laura’—‘Mrs. Bush’ if You’re Nasty

Americans have always preferred Laura Bush to her husband, and now Scribner, an imprint of a division of a subsidiary of Sumner Redstone’s National Amusements, is hoping to capitalize on that appeal with an “intimate” new memoir set for 2010 release. There’s no telling how much the better Bush is getting paid, but “millions” is a safe bet. Update after the jump.
