Graceann Rumer is a hero!!
She got her drivers license just two-weeks ago, and already used her skill to save a bus-load of her fellow students. (What did you do Tuesday?)
When her bus driver collapsed from a heart attack the 17-year-old senior at Calvary Christian Academy in Northeast Philadelphia garbed the wheel, maneuvered through a busy intersection and moved the bus to the side of the road.
Watch the video (above) to see how she pulled it off!

What a great end to these girls' journey!
Before the Golden Globes on Sunday, the girls from Oprah's school in South Africa gradauted on Saturday.
The Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy for Girls graduated its first class and out of the 75 girls who enrolled in 2007, already 72 will be walking the aisle.
What's even better? Every graduate is going to college!!!
The girls will be headed to South African and American universities.
Oprah commented on the girls' special day, saying:
Every single girl is going to leave here with soothing greater to offer the world than her body.
I know what it's like to be a poor girl with your heart's desire to do well in the world. I chose to use my philanthropy to do what I know.
Way to go, gurls!!!!!

They are literally DYING for it!
Even more For Your Consideration ads have come out for the last Harry Potter film, as Warner Bros. tries desperately to nab some recognition for the franchise.
Here are their latest attempts in the form of two new promo ads. (above)
Personally, considering the impact it has on the film world, the Academy would be downright daft not to recognize it in someway. 750 categories … there must be a place for it in there somewhere! LOL!

Does that mean other people will start putting up Oscars for sale? How much would it cost for Daniel Day-Lewis' There Will Be Blood Oscar? That one seems like it'd be worth having! LOLz!
Today, El Lay's Nate D. Sanders Auctions announced that they'd be putting Orson Welles' Citizen Kane Oscar for sale online this month.
Welles' Kane Oscar was "assumed to be lost" for decades, but it was actually in the possession of a cinematographer who was given the trophy by Welles himself.
The seller's name hasn't been identified, but
