When you're talking about "The Hunger Games," it all comes down to Katniss. Like other strong-minded women who have driven book sales into the stratosphere - think Lisbeth Salander of the "Dragon Tattoo" triology and even Bella Swan of the "Twilight" series - ace archer Katniss Everdeen is an indomitable heroine whom nothing fazes or flusters for long. Making a successful "Hunger Games" movie out of Suzanne Collins' novel required casting the best possible performer as Katniss, and in Jennifer Lawrence director Gary Ross and company have hit the bull's-eye, so to speak.

Nigella Lawson judges cooking on ABC's reality competition "The Taste," but lately the British lifestyle expert's private life is cooking up serious trouble that may threaten her role on the show. Lawson's ex-husband Charles Saatchi accused her in a letter made public during a British court case this week of being "off her head" due to habitual abuse of cocaine and prescription drugs.

Lionsgate is sticking with "Catching Fire" director Frances Lawrence for "Mockingjay Part 1" and "Mockingjay Part 2," choosing consistency over directorial variety for its flagship "Hunger Games" franchise. Lawrence, who is currently shooting the second movie in the Jennifer Lawrence series, will finish out with the third and fourth films, Lionsgate confirmed in a news release Thursday. The news was first reported by the movie website Collider. In making that choice, Lionsgate is opting to give the series a consistent look and feel with Lawrence -- best known for directing the Will Smith zombie pic "I Am Legend" -- instead of switching up directors in the manner of the "Harry Potter" and "Twilight" franchises.

This post has been corrected. Please see note at bottom for details. Though the White House Correspondents Dinner has for 98 years been a congregation of political media and the president, it's also found many a way to cram in celebrities from Hollywood, reality television and beyond. This year is no exception: invitees include Kim Kardashian and Lindsay Lohan for the Saturday fete, hosted by Jimmy Kimmel. Kanye West's love interest will attend as a guest of Fox, as will Lohan.

Movies like "Benji" and "Lassie" with their uber-pooches have set a high standard for the heroic dog genre, so the makers of "Firehouse Dog" have taken a slightly different tack: Let the human actors take center stage. It's an odd concept by doggie family film standards, but if anybody is suited to try new tricks with an old genre, it's director Todd Holland, one of the guiding hands behind the hit TV series "Malcolm in the Middle."
