NEW YORK - John Gallagher Jr. was at a media screening of his new movie "Short Term 12" a few weeks ago when a man came up to him with a critique of his series TV character, journalist Jim Harper of "The Newsroom. " "You know, you're a terrible embed," the man told him, going on to list the ways Harper bungled his job as a reporter traveling with the Mitt Romney campaign in the second season of the HBO show. It was hardly a comment from some idle observer: the naysayer was NBC News anchor Brian Williams.

Bianca was born in San Marcos, a prosperous, well-scrubbed bedroom community near San Diego. She was always very quiet, often spending hours--actually, 24 hours a day--staring out the window. Her hobbies included staring, posing seductively and falling over. She had dreams, I'm sure. What girl doesn't dream of her Prince Charming on a white horse who orders her off the Internet? But she could have scarcely imagined that one day she would star in a major motion picture, one of the art house hits of the season.

THERE'S no membership card, but there is a statue. There's no clubhouse, but there is an annual meeting at the Kodak Theatre. Welcome to the Oscar Club. It's no secret that Oscar voters seem to favor certain performers over others, nominating people such as Judi Dench, Kate Winslet and Jack Nicholson time and again. But all that may be changing given the broadband speed with which Oscar odds now rise and fall.

METAIRIE, La. - In the summer of 1992, an aspiring filmmaker named Craig Borten drove from Los Angeles to Dallas to see a man named Ron Woodroof. Borten was just a few years out of Syracuse University and didn't know what kind of movies he wanted to make, or if he wanted to make them at all. But he'd read about Woodroof, a fast-living - and, as it happened, deeply homophobic - straight electrician and rodeo habitue who had been diagnosed with AIDS in 1986. First out of self-preservation and then as a grudging crusade, Woodroof began smuggling unapproved drugs from Mexico and other countries, prolonging his life and the lives of thousands of others.

Ryan Gosling, creepy? He says he definitely was this one time not so long ago - and it involved Girl Scouts. First, let's set some background, as told to Jimmy Kimmel by Gosling on Kimmel's show Thursday night. As a boy, the "Crazy, Stupid, Love" actor was slightly traumatized, it turns out, when he had to sell a bunch of plastic wrap his dad had come by unexpectedly. After trying unsuccessfully to hawk it to friends and even teachers, he found himself stationed outside of the supermarket, targeting shoppers and wishing someone would simply come by and make his day. "I had a fantasy that one day someone would buy all of it," Gosling said.
