NICOLE KIDMAN SAYS BUH-BYE TO "THE READER" 


Miss Nicole Kidman quits "The Reader," a film to be directed by Stephen Daldry and co-starring Ralph Fiennes.

Her reason?

Pregnancy! Miss Nicole has been busy with husband, Keith Urban.

At least she hasn't shot any scenes yet.

But Kidman fans can still see their idol at the end of the year, when she reunites with her "Moulin Rouge" director, Baz Luhrmann, for the big-budget epic "Australia" with fellow Australian, Hugh Jackman.

NEW FILM FOR "JUNO" WRITER -- AND IT'S CREEPY!!!! 


Miss Diablo Cody (left) is teaming up with "Transformers'" hottie, Megan Fox (right) for Cody's new slasher flick she wrote called, "Jennifer's Body."

The film is going to be financed by Fox Atomic, and Karyn Kusama is set to direct this quirky comedic thriller about a cheerleader (Fox) who becomes possessed and begins killing the young men who lust after her!

SOUNDS DEVILICIOUSLY FUN!!!!

Now, have no fear, "Juno's" helmer, Jason Reitman, is one of the producers! He should be able to help Kusama, who did good in "Girlfight" and sucked bad in "Aeon Flux."

But it's a comedy, it's a thriller, I'M THERE!!!

THE CRITICS' CHOICE AWARDS WILL GO ON -- NO PICKET SIGNS IN SIGHT!!! 


Alright y'all, get your TIVO ready, the Critics' Choice Awards will go as planned!

As you may know, I'm a proud member of the Broadcast Film Critics Association, the mother hen of the Critics' Choice Awards.

So take this down:

VH1, 9/8 CENTRAL, TONIGHT!!!


The awards show will be broadcast live from the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium, hosted by D.L. Hughley.

The outdoor adventure film "Into the Wild," written and directed by Sean Penn, came into the contest with a leading seven nominations.

The teen pregnancy tale "Juno" followed with six, while "Atonement,""Michael Clayton,""No Country for Old Men,""Sweeney Todd" and "Hairspray" had five nominations each.

Awards were to be presented in 18 categories, including best young actor and actress, acting ensemble, song, composer, comedy and family film.

The Broadcast Film Critics Association, which represents 199 TV, radio and online critics from the United States and Canada, founded the Critics' Choice Awards in 1995.

For Oscar junkies, the Critics' Choice Awards is a strong barometer for the Academy Awards, so better watch it tonight!!!
