• The combined might of Avatar and Sherlock Holmes gave Hollywood the biggest Christmas weekend box office gross of all time with $278 million in receipts. Avatar took in $75 million over the weekend, while Sherlock pulled in a close $65.3. Even Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel took in $50 million. It’s safe to say that no one was talking to their relatives this holiday season.

• Word has it Mr. T will not cameo in the A-Team remake. Well, that ends the year on a

A private funeral was held for Brittany Murphy on Christmas Eve. A larger memorial will take place in the new year.
