Topics that caught my eye on Twitter and elsewhere: The King's Speech, Sherlock Holmes 2, Water for Elephants, Marilyn, Royal Weddings, "Two Sirs with Love", Upstairs, Downstairs and a video for Downton Abbey...
I loved reading about the close friendship that developed between Colin Firth and Geoffrey Rush while filming A King' Speech: "Apparently, their closeness continued after the cameras stopped. Firth, 50, confesses to being in mourning after Rush, 59, whose scenes were shot first so he could run off to another commitment, left him in the lurch. "Yes, Geoffrey had to go do some meaningless play, which is his true calling," he says. Even Bonham Carter could not console him. "Helena, who I adore, was constantly going, 'Well, I'm not Geoffrey.'

I'm a fan of fashion which features black and white so...
had to stop and admire these dresses on Kate Middleton.

Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber and Sir Tom Jones when questioned, have both said
they would be honoured to provide music for the impending royal nuptials.
And last but not least, I loved this great tribute video
