The Rundown

Entertainment Express: Oscars, The Fault in Our Stars, George Clooney, Scarlett Johansson, Full House

 

* This one looks like it’s definitely a tearjerker – a trailer has been released for The Fault in Our Stars, starring Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort as two teens who meet and fall in love at a cancer support group. Based upon the number-one bestselling novel by John Green, the film is due out in June.

* We all wondered where this little-heard song came from, and how it managed to earn an Oscar nod. Well, now The Academy has backtracked, and removed the Oscar nomination for best original song from the writer of Alone Yet Not Alone because of “improper lobbying.”

* George Clooney is using the premiere of The Monuments Men to help raise money for an organization that uses satellite imagery to document crimes against humanity. He also considers himself a mighty fine cobbler. These and other facts came out during his recent Reddit AMA.

* After 8 years, Scarlett Johansson has stepped down from her role as Oxfam Ambassador, in the wake of the controversy over her deal with SodaStream, which has been criticized for running a factory in the West Bank.

* For a #ThrowbackThursday of note, the men of Full House reunited on Jimmy Fallon to help ease the host’s Tonight Show move next month.
