Jennifer Lawrence is like the foul-mouthed, self-deprecating class clown who has unwittingly found herself voted prom queen. No, the "American Hustle" Oscar nominee hasn't exactly had the easiest time in the fashion spotlight. When she gets it right, she gets it really right. But when she gets it wrong, well, hold on to the glassware. At last year's Screen Actors Guild Awards, an apparent wardrobe malfunction exposed her upper thighs as she climbed onstage. Then, there was the Oscar stairs stumble seen round the world.

Cameras installed inside Los Angeles County jails have been a powerful tool in vetting allegations of deputies abusing inmates, according to a watchdog report released Thursday. For years, critics of the Sheriff's Department's jails pushed the department to install cameras in the lockups since independent witnesses are rarely present when deputies use force. In 2011, following an onslaught of inmate abuse allegations, the department began installing hundreds of cameras. The report released by the agency's civilian monitor Thursday found that the footage has helped to exonerate deputies who were falsely accused and build cases against those who break the rules.

Alligators do their best hunting in the early morning hours, say scientists who tramped out into muddy Florida wetlands and strapped cameras onto the giant reptiles' backs. The findings, published in the journal PLOS One, reveals once-obscure aspects of the lives of the animals by taking the alligator's-eye view. Alligators and crocodiles, known together as crocodilians, are found throughout the southeastern United States. Scientists have studied their hunting and eating habits for years (a recent study even found that these cunning predators may actually use sticks to lure birds to their doom )

A group of Los Angeles police officers Wednesday began wearing on-body cameras, the first step toward the LAPD's plan to outfit hundreds of officers with the recording devices. Over the next several months, 30 officers assigned to the downtown skid row area will test different camera models. At the end of the testing period, officials expect to purchase about 600 cameras for use throughout the LAPD. The push for the cameras has been led by the president of the Police Commission, Steve Soboroff.

Twenty thousand North Koreans flee Kim Jong Un's Communist regime every year. The possibility that a few of the defectors who settle in the South might be sleeper agents was the premise of 1999's "Shiri," South Korea's first Hollywood-style action movie. The spy thriller "The Suspect" exploits that same anxiety about welcoming North Korean refugees but displays much grander ambitions than its predecessor. The murder of an aging corporate executive sets in motion the hunt for Ji Dong-cheol (Gong Yoo)

What does it mean for the coming year when New Year's Eve starts out strangely? First, I walked up the middle of Broadway in downtown Los Angeles. At rush hour. They had closed off the road for the Grand Park party, and everyone else seemed to be sticking to the sidewalks - out of habit, I suppose. But I wasn't going to lose my chance to own the street itself. Then, at my empty bus stop, a man walked up making a lot of noise. The sound was out of context, so it took a bit to realize that he was crying, and not just the odd-tear-wiped-away kind.

After making his feature directorial debut in 2011 with his fierce, unsparing adaptation of Shakespeare's "Coriolanus," Ralph Fiennes is in the director's chair once again for "The Invisible Woman," which opens Christmas Day. Based on the book by Claire Tomalin, the romantic drama chronicles the relationship between Charles Dickens and actress Nelly Ternan (Felicity Jones). The writer of such literary masterpieces as "Great Expectations," "A Tale of Two Cities" and "A Christmas Carol" was married with 10 children when he met the teenager, who toiled on stage with her mother and two older sisters.
