While 'Lincoln' might not have taken home the Oscar for Best Picture, it was considered one of the best films of the year by many a critic, mainly for Daniel Day-Lewis' exceptional performance as Honest Abe.

During Saturday's White House Correspondents' Dinner, President Barack Obama revealed the first behind-the-scenes footage from Spielberg's next project, 'Obama,' which re-teams him with...Day-Lewis in the title role? Take a look...

Controversy alert! The History Channel's new 10-part miniseries 'The Bible' has already become a hit. It's apparently so good that even conservative political personality Glenn Beck can't seem to find anything to pick apart, calling it "one of the most important shows in decades." Oh wait! He did mention a striking similarity between Satan and President Barack Obama.

To 'Star Wars' fans' dismay, the White House decided to pass on a petition (an actual petition, mind you) to build a real-life Death Star, citing, among other things, the $850,000,000,000,000,000 budget needed to construct such a thing and the government's strict stance against blowing up planets. And the Galactic Empire couldn't be happier! In response to the official response, the Galactic Empire spoke out against President Obama in a spoof press release. View the full response after the break.

The moment Alaska governor Sarah Palin first came to the world stage as John McCain's running mate in the 2008 presidential elections, we knew that her larger-than-life personality would become the stuff of parody and portrayal from years to come. Once we finished laughing at Tina Fey's dead-on impression, the tone turned serious as HBO's 'Game Change' garnered multiple Emmys with Julianne Moore in the lead role.
Now, the original 'Game Change' writers have begun work on a sequel covering the 2012 elections between Mitt Romney and Barack Obama, titled 'Double Down: Game Change 2012,' and guess what HBO wants to do with it?

If nothing else, 'South Park' will always be known for its lightning quick turn-around when it comes to production, often parodying topical events mere days after they occur.  This was never more clear than 2008's "About Last Night...," which parodied the election results the night before, but has 'South Park' gotten even faster in recent years?  Given that the next episode will be titled "Obama Wins!," 'South Park' seems to have predicted the decision for us!  So what does the first clip reveal?

Earlier today we were ecstatic to confirm the news that longtime 'Saturday Night Live' star Jason Sudeikis would stick with the NBC sketch-comedy series through another season, rather than depart with Andy Samberg, Kristen Wiig and Abby Elliott.  Now, as 'Saturday Night Live' prepares to launch season 38 this Saturday night, we have even more turnover to report, though this time internally.  Fred Armisen will be stepping down from the role of President Barack Obama, but who will take his place?
