An unflinching look at slavery in America and a story about 1970s con men dominated the Golden Globes nominations Thursday morning, with "12 Years a Slave" and "American Hustle" earning seven nods apiece, including best picture, best director and a slew of acting nominations. The nominations help catapult both films to solid front-runner status on the road to the coveted best picture Oscar, as well as Academy Awards for filmmakers Steve McQueen and David O. Russell, and actors Chiwetel Ejiofor, Michael Fassbender, Lupita Nyong'o, Amy Adams, Jennifer Lawrence, Christian Bale and Bradley Cooper.

With SAG and Golden Globe nominations now behind us and Oscar voters starting to mark their nominating ballots, Hollywood's awards season is kicking into high gear. Prognosticating about the winners is a high art in this town, but in an attempt to add a little science to score-keeping, the L.A. Times' HeatMeter is back. Developed last season, the system seeks to quantify the status of the race at various moments and tracks the relative heat of talent, movies, even studios, through the period that culminates with the Academy Awards on Feb. 24. Our movie team has assigned values to the top awards according to our assessment of their relative importance.

If someone from the Ducks is going to answer the Kings' physical ways Tuesday night as the teams renew their rivalry at Honda Center, recent acquisition Tim Jackman is the most likely. Jackman has 53 penalty minutes in 14 games, 12 in the four he's played since joining the Ducks before their Nov. 22 game. “You can tell just from the morning skate, there's more energy and guys are excited to play,” said Jackman, who has previously dealt with the New York Islanders' grudge with the New York Rangers and in Calgary's Canadian feud with Edmonton.

Sitting here in Best Picture Limbo, thumbing through the year-old magazines (Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively? No way that works!) and waiting for the bell to ring on the remaining Oscar candidates - "Zero Dark Thirty," "Django Unchained," "Les Miserables," the "Hobbit" movie - we can at least report on one sure-fire contender that's arriving in theaters ... not next month but tomorrow. Consider the movie's pedigree: Its acting ensemble features two Oscar winners and two other actors who have been nominated seven times through the years.

Halfway through Season 23 of “Dancing With the Stars” and we've got our first shocker. After a feel-good night of dances commemorating the remaining couples' most memorable Years, it seemed especially harsh to send a couple home. Even worse was the actual couple the glitterverse sent packing: Christina Milian and Mark Ballas. This landed like a big "Forget You" to the high-scoring couple. Not only did this elimination come right after Christina had her best, most memorable dance, but it came after she scored the season's first 10. This also happened to be the night Paris Hilton came out in support of her multi-hyphenate friend.

WASHINGTON - The White House said for the first time that there was evidence Syria had used chemical weapons in its civil war, but administration officials called for a broader United Nations investigation and edged away from declaring Damascus had crossed a "red line" that might trigger U.S. intervention. According to a White House letter to Congress, U.S. intelligence agencies assessed "with varying degrees of confidence" that President Bashar Assad's forces had used small amounts of sarin gas, a deadly nerve agent banned by international treaty.

Paula Deen, the Southern celebrity chef, has been dumped from the Food Network like a stale beignet. Her Georgia roots are what made her a unique talent in the foodie world, and the darker ends of those roots are what got her in trouble. When her use of the N-word and her less-than-PC racial humor came to light in a court deposition, Deen suddenly found herself swept up in the kind of bad publicity that offers no upside. (There's Charlie Sheen bad -- so bad that it becomes entertainment; and there's Mel Gibson bad -- just plain toxic.)

Harvey Weinstein loves a good fight -- especially if it helps him promote one of his company's movies. So when the MPAA's title registration bureau decided this week that the Weinstein Co. couldn't use the title "The Butler" on Lee Daniels' upcoming biopic about the life of a longtime White House butler because it's also the title of a 1916 short film owned by Warner Bros., Weinstein immediately went into outrage mode. Today, he announced the hiring of prominent attorney David Boies, who represented Al Gore in the 2000 recount fight and gay marriage advocates in the recent Supreme Court challenge to California's same-sex marriage ban, as well as filmmaker Michael Moore when he ran afoul of the Treasury Department after visiting Cuba for the Weinstein Co. film "Sicko.

It's one debate with two faces: Sporadic demonstrations over George Zimmerman's acquittal continued all over the country Tuesday, but two states, on opposite ends of the U.S., have made themselves the focus of the protests, and they've done so by taking divergent paths. In Florida, it's high-wattage activism. Orlando has arguably become the nation's capital of racial discussion and new political pressure, with an NAACP convention bringing big names to discuss the aftermath of Trayvon Martin's death and the prospect of formal political action.

The federal government shutdown has lasted nearly two weeks, but the Washington blame game is still open for business. Hundreds of demonstrators pushed past barricades at the sealed-off World War II Memorial Sunday as part of a " Million Vet March " to protest the closing of war memorials, a demonstration that extended to the White House. In a shutdown that has touched hundreds of thousands of federal workers, working parents, young students and home buyers, the closing of national monuments has proved to be a particular point of grievance for conservatives in the battle to leverage political blame for the impasse.

Jimmy Kimmel, I feel your pain -- and your gain. In 2010, I found myself engulfed in a “rap feud” with Kanye West much like the one in which Kimmel, the L.A.-based talk show host, found himself Thursday, with the erstwhile Louis Vuitton don going on a gonzo Twitter offensive against me and the media universe craning in to gawk and skewer the commotion. In Kimmel's case, West became enraged courtesy of the “ Kid Re-Kreation ” video he commissioned to lampoon a recent, typically magniloquent interview that Yeezus gave the BBC (in which he refers to himself as “a god” and muses at high volume and great length about leather jogging pants)

The Emmys are so predictable … so boring … so uninspired … unless, of course, voters are rewarding your favorite show yet again, and then it's wildly on-target, a well-deserved honor bestowed by perceptive and discriminating industry authorities. FOR THE RECORD: Julia Louis-Dreyfus: The Gold Standard column in the Aug. 9 edition of The Envelope said that Julia Louis-Dreyfus was a 12-time Emmy nominee. The actress has 13 nominations. - Expect a great many predictable (and well-deserved)

Imagine if the diggers really do find Jimmy Hoffa. That's a mental leap some Michigan residents are not quite ready to make, as the Federal Bureau of Investigation goes back to digging on the second day of its search for former Teamsters boss Hoffa, who became labor's version of Amelia Earhart when he disappeared in 1975. "You're not finding him," one resident tweeted a video of himself saying, as the latest dig site at an Oakland Township field north of Detroit has attracted an array of onlookers and TV crews checking out the search.
