    Daniel Day-Lewis's Third Oscar?

    If the protean Daniel Day-Lewis wins his third Oscar for Lincoln--which there's a much better chance of happening than Liz & Dick nabbing an Emmy--he'll be the first three-time Best Actor winner in the Academy's history.

    Streisand's Directing Her First Movie In 16 Years

    If she can raise the money, that is. And it's pretty shocking that she's having trouble doing so considering that Oscar winners Cate Blanchett and Colin Firth are attached to star in the film, which is called Skinny and Cat. Is it about Kate Hepburn and a very thin stutterer?
