    John Goodman Takes 'Flight' With Denzel Washington

    While lately we've been giving it up for Bryan Cranston, who has filled his post-"Malcolm In The Middle" career with a staggering number of diverse projects and left his sitcom Dad persona far, far behind him, let's also give some due praise to John Goodman. The former "Roseanne" star has become one of the most respected thesps going today, and while we could sit here all day running down his resume, let's just take a look at the most recent entries. He took a part in Kevin Smith's horror flick "Red State," features in the silent movie sensation "The Artist," has a role in another Oscar contender this year "Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close," made a guest appearance on "Community" and recently lined up Ben Affleck's "Argo." Not too bad, right? And it looks like he's not stopping anytime soon.

    YOU decide - What Are The WORST Black TV Shows Of All Time?

    Since EVERYBODY steals from us (such as Monique's Michael K. Williams and Django Unchained scoop from last week, which was reported on film and news blogs practically around the world), why not steal from someone else this time? So with that I came across this amusing recent item on Bossip.com (That's right Bossip. I makes no bones about it. I love it) in which they list, in their opinion, the WORST black TV shows ever.

    Of course, this new upcoming remake of Sparkle has been getting a lot of comments from our readers, especially those who love the original 1976 film.

    Watch: The Couple From 'Once' Deal With Fame & Love In Trailer For 'The Swell Season'

    One of the truly amazing stories of the 2006 awards season belonged to the little indie film that could, "Once." Directed by John Carney and starring The Frames member Glen Hansard and his The Swell Season collaborator Markéta Irglová, the musical story centered on an Irish busker (Hansard) who strikes up a relationship with a Czech immigrant (Irglová). "Once" became an arthouse sensation, taking in over $20 million worldwide, on a microscopic budget of $150,000. And the Academy sat up and took notice as well, with the film winning a statue for Best Original Song for "Falling Slowly," leading to one of the most touching Oscar speeches in recent memory. Well, the story didn't end there for either Hansard or Irglová.
