Social media has become an added medium of coverage to all news genres, including sports, politics and entertainment. We’re bringing you a social media round-up of interesting and entertaining items making film headlines in the social sphere.
With some of the industry’s most celebrated professionals sitting together in one room, Sunday night’s Golden Globe Awards never failed to look like one giant A-list hangout. But the energy was just as rowdy and impressive on Twitter too.
Hashtags like #GoldenGlobes and #ShowUsYourGlobes held the Twitter Trend fort down, while tons of actors and actresses logged on to share their thoughts about the evening. Whether it was Jodie Foster’s speech reactions, Ben Affleck’s double-win tweets or Hugh Jackman’s Golden Globe statue shot, the social media feed was flowing with entertainment. (Kudos to Ian McKellen for his X-Men reference, and to Bryan Singer for watching the award show on a drop down TV screen...in his bedroom).

Was it a proud revelation, or an impassioned case for privacy? A coming-out speech, or a why-SHOULD-I-come-out speech? Too little and too late, or just enough?
Jodie Foster's rambling, fascinating and intensely personal remarks at the Golden Globes were not merely the watercooler moment of the ceremony. They were a big moment for the gay community, and many advocates - though not all - were cheering her on Monday for finally referring publicly to her sexual orientation, albeit in her own particular way.
While some were criticizing the actress for not uttering the words "gay" or "lesbian," and for waiting decades to come out at all, others were saying she deserved to come out in any way she chose, and with any words she happened to favor.
"No doubt, she was partly speaking in code, and she may never have wrapped her words around the fact that she is a lesbian," said Fred Sainz of the Human Rights Campaign, a national gay rights group. "But everyone watching clearly understood that she was communicating to people that she is gay. She is to be congratulated, no matter how awkward or inarticulate it may have seemed to some. It took an awful lot of courage."
Hollywood’s top stars in film and television walked the red carpet at last night’s 70th Annual Golden Globe Awards. From fabulous gowns and Bill Murray’s questionable facial hair to dashing men in tuxes and multiple leading ladies choosing shades of red for the occasion, the night’s nominees and presenters showed off their best duds and jewels. Cute couples ruled the red carpet including Emily Blunt and John Krasinski and hilarious hosts (who were also nominated for their TV work) Tina Fey and Amy Poehler.

The best way to describe the 2013 Golden Globes? Ladies Night. Estrogen was queen in so many ways.
First off, co-hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler brought it big time with their distinct brand of super smarty-pants humour and left us wanting more in just the first few minutes. Then, 26-year-old phenom and star of HBO's "Girls," Lena Dunham walked away a major winner with both best TV actress and best TV series accolades, for which she also writes and directs. And to wrap it up, Jodie Foster was recognized with a lifetime achievement award and gave a thought-provoking, moving speech that brought several stars to tears. And, of course, the icing on that fabulous cake was the many highs and lows on the red carpet.
Here are our picks for best and worst fashion of the night.
Zero Dark Thirty hunted down the top spot at the box office - and easily won it.
Sony Pictures' controversial Osama bin Laden raid drama nabbed first place with $24 million in its first weekend in wide release, according to studio estimates Sunday.
The film, which opened in a limited run last month, earned five Oscar nominations last week, including best picture, original screenplay and actress for Jessica Chastain as a dogged CIA operative.
Open Road Films' horror parody A Haunted House starring Marlon Wayans debuted in second place with a solid $18.8 million. The Warner Bros. mobster drama Gangster Squad, starring Josh Brolin and Ryan Gosling as off-the-books police officers battling a mob boss played by Sean Penn, opened below expectations in third place with $16.7 million.
From our charming hosts, who dared to go there (as in James Cameron jokes and warning Taylor Swift to stay away from Michael J. Fox's son), Jodie Foster's eloquent, if slightly confusing, speech and Lena Dunham's debut series "Girls" beating out heavyweights like "Modern Family," "Big Bang Theory" and "Smash, "it was indeed ladies night at the Golden Globes and the results were mostly good, often great.
We'll admit that we wished there was more time for Tina Fey and Amy Poehler to do their schtick and can barely handle Anne Hathaway's desperate smile but the 2013 Golden Globes still had more genuine laughs than last year's Ricky Gervais-hosted party, and while his MO is going for the jugular, Fey and Poehler set the tone for the evening, straddling the line between risky and clever, even dressing up as fake nominees, and who doesn't like a good wig gag?
There was even at least one surprise win - Quentin! - and the Hollywood Foreign Press Association is now going steady with Ben Affleck, who enlisted his wife Jennifer Garner to help thank people he forgot in his acceptance speech while she was onstage as a presenter. Yeah, tacky.
Join us as we review the big show, determine what killed and what made us cringe and take a closer look at the 2013 Golden Globes. Dig in!
Growing concern that problems with the new electronic Oscar voting system could lead to record-low turnout has prompted the motion picture academy to extend the deadline for members to vote for Oscar nominations.
But with next week's highly anticipated announcements looming, the extension is only for a day, until Friday. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences said Monday any votes received after the new deadline will not be counted.
"By extending the voting deadline we are providing every opportunity available to make the transition to online balloting as smooth as possible," said the academy's chief operating officer, Ric Robertson, in a statement. "We're grateful to our global membership for joining us in this process."
