If you followed the 2012 presidential election in any capacity, you've most likely heard of Nate Silver and his FiveThirtyEight blog. Even if you didn't specifically read his columns, you definitely heard about how he successfully predicted the outcome of the election in every single state using math and statistics. That's wildly impressive and Mr. Silver deserved all the acclaim that came his way. But now he has a much more difficult and demanding task ahead of him: predicting the 2013 Oscars!

As we rush headlong toward the Oscars, every award from every organization and critic group gives us a taste of what may be taking home the gold next month.

Was there ever any doubt that 'The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey' was going to dominate this weekend? Heck, it's probably going to dominate next weekend, too. If audiences embrace it like they did 'Lord of the Rings,' it may even dominate the week after that. The big question now is whether or not Peter Jackson's return to Middle Earth will make a bunch of money, but exactly how many bunches.

Trying to keep up with whatever the heck the Oscars are doing every year is a full time job for many entertainment journalists, mainly because of the organization's labyrinthine rules and often bizarre nomination process. In the case of some categories, all of the potential nominees are whittled down to a shorter list of potential nominees and then, from that list, the final nominations are decided. This is the case with the Best Make-Up Academy Award and the list of seven finalists has been revealed.

The 2013 Golden Globes nominations were announced this morning when Jessica Alba, Megan Fox and Ed Helms took the press stage. Predictably, Steven Spielberg's 'Lincoln,' Kathryn Bigelow's 'Zero Dark Thirty' and Tom Hooper's 'Les Miserables' all went home happy with their respective noms, but an unexpected surprise was the inclusion of 'Django Unchained' in a total of five categories, including one for Best Picture! But who are the film's main competitors?

There's no use beating around the bush here -- this was a pretty dull weekend at the box office. There was only one new release, but it was a dump that bombed rather spectacularly and the rest of the line-up is essentially the same as last week, with only a few titles shuffling around. It's the the quiet before the storm...the storm being 'The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey,' which opens in a few days.

Many Americans found themselves with four days off last week, ostensibly so they could go see their family and eat turkey and celebrate Thanksgiving from the comfort of their homes. Instead, they went to the movies. In fact, this was the biggest Thanksgiving box office of all time. Congratulations, America!
