Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchette, and Jennifer Lawrence are among the leading ladies expected to attend the Oscar nominees luncheon today. Leonardo Dicaprio, Matthew McConaughey, and Christian Bale are also expected to take part in the pre-Oscar event. The Academy Awards will be handed out on March 2nd.

It looks like the love birds, Alex and Sierra, who became America's favorite last season on the X Factor will be the last U.S. winner to take the title. From American Idol to the X Factor, Simon Cowell helped to discover many successful artists. He's now returning to the UK version of the X Factor. That means the U.S. Version is a wrap after three seasons. The X factor is an international hit singing competition that's been produced in 45 countries since its launch in 2004. The UK version of the show is responsible for launching the music careers of Leona Lewis and One Direction.

After public outcry, the celebrity boxing match with George Zimmerman has been called off. Promoter Damon Feldman says he was threatened.
There were reports that the former neighborhood watchman who was acquitted of fatally shooting Trayvon Martin, could have faced off with rapper DMX. Since the announcement, thousands took to social media to cancel the match. The fight was set for next month. Feldman said on Twitter "It was my decision to cancel the George Zimmerman fight. It was worth a lot of money to me, but people's feelings meant more to me."
