roger ebert ebertfest film festival posthumus 15th annual

As the fearless film critic would likely say were he still alive, "the show must go on!"

Roger Ebert died yesterday, succumbing to complications from cancer, but his rich legacy lives on.

For the 15th year in a row, cinephiles and superstars alike will flock to Illinois to share their love of great movies at Ebertfest. The April 17-21 film festival won't be the same, obviously, without the presence of the legendary critic, but he will be there in spirit!

Plenty of celebz will be there, too!

Bradley Cooper Is Comedy's Best Man At The Critics' Choice Awards!

It seems like it's going to be a sweep for Silver Linings Playbook!

And rightfully so!

Just moments after his co-star Jennifer Lawrence won her SECOND Critics' Choice Award, Bradley Cooper won for Best Actor In A Comedy.

He beat out Jack Black for Bernie, Paul Rudd for This is 40, Channing Tatum in 21 Jump Street, and Mark Wahlberg for Ted, so that was some pretty stiff competition!

But, Brad walked away with the big surprise! Let's toast to your talent and hawtness, Mr. Cooper!

Eddie Murphy Tops List Of Most Overpaid Actors

Eddie Murphy Tops List Of Most Overpaid Actors

Is Eddie Murphy the most overpaid actor in Hollywood working today?

Forbes says yes! They've compiled a short list of the movie stars that just aren't worth their weight in gold.

Ch-ch-check out the pics (below) to see who else made the top five!

Of course, this is no judgment on the quality of the acting or the entertainment potential of these stars. It's purely a financial metric.

Forbes developed the list by comparing the gross of movies the actors starred in with their paychecks. According to their calculations, Eddie Murphy movies bring in only $2.30 for every dollar he is paid.

But is he really overpaid? Sure, Eddie gets millions per movie, but think of how much money you save on other actors when he plays five roles per film! They totally haven't thought this one through!

Only the millions of fans who listen to Tenacious D religiously and anyone who remembers his rocking Marvin Gaye cover in High Fidelity, that's who! LOLz!!

Still, no one predicted Jack Black taking the stage mic at Thursday's Neil Diamond concert!!

Ch-ch-check out Neil & Jack's unexpectedly mindblowing rendition of one of the greatest pop songs ever recorded (above), Sweet Caroline!
