"Lincoln" leads the list of films nominated for this year's BAFTAs - the British version of the Oscars. The biopic was shortlisted in categories including best film, best actor for Daniel Day Lewis, supporting actor for Tommy Lee Jones and supporting actress for Sally Field. In a surprise twist, however, director Steven Spielberg was not nominated. The awards will be handed out in London on February 10.

From top honors, to the bottom ones - "Breaking Dawn - Part 2" leads the Razzies, which celebrates the year's worst films. The final installment in the "Twilight" series leads the pack of nominees with nods in all 10 categories, including worst picture. For that award, "Breaking Dawn - Part 2" will have to edge out other poorly received films like "Battleship," "The Oogieloves," "A Thousand Words," and "That's My Boy."

Oprah has secured an interview with Lance Armstrong - it's being pegged as a tell-all conversation, his first since being banned from cycling for life following charges for doping. The interview will be broadcast on Oprah's channel, OWN, on January 17.

Finally, Beyonce will again perform for U.S. President Barack Obama - this time at his swearing-in ceremony on January 21. Beyonce will sing the Star Spangled Banner. Others scheduled to perform include James Taylor and Kelly Clarkson.
