The 2010 awards season officially kicks off this weekend with Sunday's 67th annual Golden Globes ceremony airing live from L.A.'s Beverly Hilton Hotel.
Brad and Angie may be skipping this year's soiree, but there is still plenty to look forward to on the Ricky Gervais-hosted telcast. Jennifer Aniston, Cameron Diaz, and Nicole Kidman are among the stars set to present statuettes to honor Hollywood's best film and TV efforts.
Up for Best Picture honors? James Cameron's $1.3 billion-grossing blockbuster Avatar, The Hurt Locker, Inglourious Basterds, Precious and Up in the Air, which also scored lead star George Clooney a Best Actor nod.
Once the red carpet has been rolled away and the trophies handed out, the winter TV season premieres continue, with Fox's 24, airing Sunday at 9 p.m.
Freddie Prinze Jr. joins Keifer Sutherland and this season's CTU agents for another round of tense political intrigue and nail-biting action. First up? Jack Bauer agrees to help stop the assassination of a Middle East leader (Slumdog Millionaire's Anil Kapoor, whom Us' John Griffiths says is "excellent" in his role) who wants peace with the U.S.
New in theaters this weekend is the Denzel Washington adventure drama The Book of Eli.
In the flick, which Us' movie critic Thelma Adams gives three stars out of four, a buff Washington fights his way through the post-apocalyptic Western as a man who wanders across the country with a dog-eared book that a tyrant (Gary Oldman) desperately wants. While the flick echoes 2009's The Road, Adams has high praise for Eli directors Albert and Allen Hughes, who offer "vigorous action, a strong story and an actual point" to make a more entertaining film.
