The 24th annual American Cinematheque Award presentation to Matt Damon on Saturday night was far more Friars Club Roast than earnest tribute to the 39-year-old actor-humanitarian. The only thing missing onstage at the Beverly Hilton International Ballroom was Dean Martin, who used to host those old celebrity roasts on NBC way back when. Instead of Dino dishing out the zingers, there was talk-show host Jimmy Kimmel, who opened the breezy, bawdy ceremony by ticking off the films of another actor named Matt.

Worried about making a great impression on the first day of school? Even Miss Teen USA, Logan West, admits to feeling nervous on first days. "I was like petrified," the 18-year-old says. "I think it's just because it's a new year, it's new people, it's everything. " Often it's tempting to want to start a new school year - or any new chapter - with a totally new look as well. Just last weekend Miley Cyrus chopped her long locks into an edgy pixie crop and tweeted it for all the world to see. "Miley's cut is a bold move, and I have to say it's flattering on her," says Yesenia Almonte, beauty director for Seventeen magazine.

"High School Musical 3: Senior Year" is the third installment of Walt Disney Co.'s franchise in the last three years, a surprise cash cow that ran on cable TV and now springs to the big screen. "Saw V," its potential rival for No. 1 this weekend at the box office, is the fifth movie in Twisted Pictures and Lionsgate's lucrative horror series in the last five years. If other industries recycled their material as regularly as Hollywood, global warming would be a distant memory.

TORONTO -- The manic crowd for Kristen Stewart on Thursday night was nothing compared to the turnout Friday for “Spring Breakers.” Was this young, smartly dressed crowd there for the latest film by notorious provocateur Harmony Korine, whose last film was the divisive “Trash Humpers”? Well, yes, but really they were there for the combined youth demo drawing power of James Franco, Selena Gomez, Vanessa Hudgens and Ashley Benson, with the added rumor that Gomez's boyfriend Justin Bieber may be there.

Vanessa Hudgens, the star of the Disney "High School Musical" films, is tackling more adult roles in the upcoming "Machete Kills" and "The Frozen Ground. " But the 23-year-old has retained her youthful, slightly punk edge when it comes to her personal style -- she's more likely to don a pair of combat boots on the red carpet than a pair of sparkly stilettos. When she participated in "The 24 Hour Plays," Montblanc's creative fundraiser for the Urban Arts Project, in New York City on Monday, the actress opted for a sleeveless white top, simple black pants and lace-up boots.

Vanessa Hudgens, Julianne Hough, Emma Roberts and Clint Eastwood were just a few of the celebrities who took a break from the Coachella Music and Arts Festival to visit the Armani Exchange Neon Carnival on Saturday night. For the last four years, the brand has hosted a giant carnival in the middle of the desert at the Tradition Aviation Airport Hangar just 15 minutes from the Empire Polo Club. It's arguably one of the biggest events surrounding the festival and this year was no different.

When a 15-year-old girl flashes a hint of her green bra in a playfully naughty photo on the Internet, hardly anyone -- aside from perhaps her parents -- blinks. But when the teen is Miley Cyrus, the face of the billion-dollar "Hannah Montana" Disney Channel franchise, everyone stares. The provocative images risk tainting the squeaky-clean image that's made her a hero for young girls. Disney Channel has emerged as a powerful creative engine for the Walt Disney Co.

Jennifer Aniston wasn't there to accept her MTV Movie Award for best kiss, but her "We're the Millers" costar Will Poulter did a fine job invoking her presence with a presumably fake text message from the actress who played his fake mom. Aniston, Poulter and Emma Roberts won the best kiss award Sunday night for their awkward smooching scene in "Millers," which revolves around a fake family assembled by Jason Sudeikis' character to help him bring...

"Sucker Punch," Zack Snyder's violent mash-up of Dickensian dark morality with Moulin Rouge couture is stun-gun gorgeous, psychosexually unnerving, fantasy action-riffic and most definitely not for the faint of heart. Starring the pretty pout of Emily Browning's Babydoll ? sporting machine guns, Mary Janes, black stockings and little else ? the film is, existentially speaking, a Freudian nightmare gunning for debate as much as entertainment. Some will see the worst sort of objectification in its Victoria's Secret-esque femme front line that also includes the scantily clad corps of Abbie Cornish, Jena Malone, Vanessa Hudgens and Jamie Chung.

"High School Musical" has been a hit, Emmy-winning movie on cable television's Disney Channel, and its soundtrack album was the biggest-selling CD of 2006, at 3.8 million and still counting. So what's next? Think "High School Musical: The Concert."
