The cast of the 1970s crime caper "American Hustle" grooved its way to the top prize from the Screen Actors Guild on Saturday in a key test of the film's Oscar mettle six weeks ahead of a likely competitive race for Academy Awards. "American Hustle" from director David O. Russell has been hailed for its performances, although it won no individual acting awards on Saturday and only Jennifer Lawrence was nominated for her supporting role. It prevailed over another presumed Oscar front-runner, "12 Years a Slave," which only took home a best supporting actress trophy. Australian Cate Blanchett won best actress for her role as a socialite who suffers a breakdown in Woody Allen's "Blue Jasmine," while best actor went to Matthew McConaughey for his turn as an unlikely AIDS activist in "Dallas Buyers Club. Both actors are the clear front-runners for best acting Oscars after winning Golden Globes last Sunday. Screen Actors Guild (SAG) awards are honors that actors relish, however, because they come from their peers. In what is widely considered one of the best years for quality film in recent memory, SAG and other guild awards to be handed out in the next two weeks could collectively steer the race in favor of one film for the industry's highest honor, the best picture Oscar, on March 2.

"The Square," a film that follows activists in Cairo's Tahrir Square following the 2011 overthrow of Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak, won the award for best feature documentary for 2013 on Friday from the International Documentary Association. The IDA award for Egyptian-American filmmaker Jehane Noujaim's work comes after honors at the Toronto and Sundance film festivals, setting it up as a favorite for an Oscar, for which it is short-listed. "The Square" also made history last month as the first documentary acquired by Netflix Inc, the online streaming and DVD company that is hoping to lure more subscribers with its own original programming. "The Square" follows a handful of activists as they battle leaders and regimes, and risk their lives to try to build a new democratic society. The IDA's best limited series award went to CNN original series "Inside Man," hosted by filmmaker Morgan Spurlock. The series investigates diverse sectors of American life, from medical marijuana to migrant farmworkers. The IDA, a 30-year-old non-profit that aims to support the documentary culture, recognized Oscar-winner Alex Gibney with the 2013 Career Achievement Award. Gibney's most recent film, "The Armstrong Lie," about disgraced cyclist Lance Armstrong, is also on the shortlist of 15 documentaries vying for one of the five nominations for an Academy Award. Laura Poitras, the filmmaker who helped former U.S. National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden reveal vast amounts of information on government surveillance, was honored with the IDA's Courage Under Fire Award. She was recognized by the IDA for "conspicuous bravery in the pursuit of truth." The awards were presented in a ceremony Friday night in Los Angeles, but Poitras accepted hers via link-up from Berlin, where she is currently editing the third film in her post-9/11 trilogy, this one about NSA surveillance, the IDA said.

Prominent Egyptian poet Ahmed Fouad Negm, renowned for his witty criticism of authorities in Egypt, passed away on Tuesday at age 84, state media reported. Negm, who was born in the Sharqiya province in 1929, was imprisoned several times for his criticism of Egyptian leaders Gamal Abdel Nasser, his successor Anwar Sadat, and Hosni Mubarak, who was ousted by a popular uprising in 2011. Negm, who wrote in colloquial Arabic, was also critical of the country's first elected leader Mohamed Morsi, who was overthrown by the army in July after mass protests against his rule. More»

Actor Paul Walker, best known for his roles in the "Fast and the Furious" action movies, died on Saturday in a car crash in Southern California, his publicist said. Walker, 40, who was in five of the six films about illegal street racing and heists, was a passenger in a friend's car and was attending a charity event, according to a message linked to his Twitter account. "Sadly, I must confirm that Paul did pass away this afternoon in a car accident," Ame Van Iden, Walker's publicist, said in an email. The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department said in a statement that two people were killed in a car accident in Valencia, a community in the city of Santa Clarita, at about 3:30 p.m. (6:30 p.m. ET). Deputies arriving at the scene found the vehicle engulfed in flames. The victims were pronounced dead at the scene, the statement said. The office did not provide the identities of the dead, and said the cause was under investigation. More»

Actors Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore have finalized their divorce two years after separating, bringing official closure for one of Hollywood's most prominent couples. The end to the eight-year marriage was made final on Tuesday in Los Angeles Superior Court, with both actors agreeing not to pay spousal support. In March, Moore, 51, had asked the court to grant her financial support from Kutcher, an unusual move for one of the top-earning women in Hollywood during the 1990s. Kutcher, the star of CBS television comedy "Two and a Half Men," filed for divorce from Moore in December 2012 after more than a year of separation. He cited irreconcilable differences with the "G.I. Jane" star. The 35-year-old film and TV star has been the highest-paid actor on television for the last two years, earning an estimated $24 million annually, according to Forbes magazine. More»

Prosecutors on Monday accused "Real Housewives of New Jersey" stars Teresa and Joe Giudice of lying eight years ago when they claimed on loan applications that Teresa was a realtor, not a housewife. A federal grand jury in Newark, New Jersey, added two new counts to the long list of fraud charges against the husband and wife, prosecutors said. The Giudices, who have appeared in five seasons of the TV reality show on the Bravo channel, were charged with new counts of bank fraud and loan application fraud, bringing the number of counts against them to 41. Prosecutors first accused the Giudices on July 29 of submitting fraudulent applications to obtain mortgages and other loans, concealing income and failing to pay taxes. The charges alleged that from 2001 to 2008, the couple submitted fraudulent loan applications and then, after filing for bankruptcy in 2009, concealed income that Teresa, 41, earned from the TV show. The Giudices were accused of hiding rental income and concealing various businesses they controlled, according to the indictment. More»

Qsoft, the production company for satirist Bassem's Youssef's 'El-Bernameg' TV show, announced on Sunday that they have decided to terminate their contract with the program's host channel, CBC. According to the Sunday statement, Qsoft will take all legal procedures against CBC to receive "compensation for intellectual and financial harm" due to the show's suspension without warning after one episode, Al-Ahram's Arabic website reported. CBC announced in early November that it had decided to suspend 'El-Bernameg' following review of the third season's second episode, which had yet to be screened. The channel stated that Youssef and his producer "violated what has been agreed upon" with CBC, as well as CBC's "editorial policies," and announced the show's suspension until editorial and commercial disputes with Youssef were resolved. Qsoft's statement asserted that the company has been subject to "an unjust campaign" over the past weeks by CBC, which is pressuring Youssef and the production team to agree to restrictions on 'El-Bernameg's content.

British actor Orlando Bloom and Australian model Miranda Kerr have separated after three years of marriage, the couple said on Friday. Bloom, 36, who is starring in a modern-day version of "Romeo and Juliet" on Broadway, and Kerr, 30, said they have been amicably separated for the past few months. The couple began dating in 2007, married in July 2010 and has a 2-year-old son, Flynn. "After six years together, they have recently decided to formalize their separation," their representative said in a statement. "Despite this being the end of their marriage, they love, support and respect each other as both parents of their son and as family," the statement added. The announcement ended almost a year of speculation that Bloom, the star of Hollywood blockbusters "Lord of the Rings" and "Pirates of the Caribbean," and Kerr, one of the highest-earning models, were parting.The couple have not appeared in public together since Bloom's Broadway debut on September 19 in "Romeo and Juliet" opposite actress Condola Rashad.

Pop singer Miley Cyrus twerked her way to the top spot of the weekly Billboard 200 album chart on Wednesday, notching her fourth chart-topping record. "Bangerz," which features Cyrus experimenting with hip hop, dance and R&B influences, sold 270,000 copies in its first week, according to figures from Nielsen SoundScan. Former Disney star Cyrus, 20, has captured headlines with a series of scantily clad, raunchy performances that began with the MTV Video Music Awards last month, where she showed off some provocative dance moves, known as "twerking." In the video for her latest song "Wrecking Ball," the second single from "Bangerz," Cyrus is seen naked and swinging from a giant wrecking ball and provocatively licking a sledgehammer. "Bangerz" leads seven new debut records in the top 10 of this week's Billboard 200 chart. Alt-pop group Panic! At the Disco landed at No. 2 with its latest album "Too Weird to Live, Too Rare to Die!" selling 84,000 copies. Rapper Pusha T entered the chart at No. 4 with his latest set "My Name is My Name."

"Gravity," a new 3D thriller about two stranded astronauts floating through space, soared to the top of weekend movie charts, setting a box office record for the month of October by pulling in $55.6 million at U.S. and Canadian theaters. The film, which stars Oscar winners Sandra Bullock and George Clooney and wowed critics with its special effects, added $27.4 million from sales in international markets, for a combined debut of $83 million, distributor Warner Bros. said on Sunday. Last week's box office winner, animated "Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2," dropped to second place with $21.5 million from Friday through Sunday. "Runner Runner," a new drama about the dark and murky world of online gambling, finished third after earning $7.6 million. "Gravity" defied the most optimistic pre-weekend forecasts from box office analysts, who saw the film starting off with up to $42 million at U.S. and Canadian theaters. It beat the previous October record, the $52.5 million opening for "Paranormal Activity 3" in 2011. More»
