'Gravity': Astronauts congratulate film on Oscar wins ... from space! -- VIDEO

NASA-Oscar-Award-clip.jpg

Though 12 Years a Slave may have won the top prize, Gravity was the big winner at this year’s Academy Awards, taking home seven gold statuettes, the most of any film, including Best Director and Best Visual Effects.

Now the Gravity team is receiving a congratulatory message from some guys who really do know a lot about the subject. NASA astronauts Michael S. Hopkins and Richard A. Mastracchio, along with JAXA (Japan’s NASA equivalent) astronaut Koichi Wakata, were so impressed by the film’s production team after watching the movie about the International Space Station, that they decided to film themselves out in space to show their enthusiasm for the film and its realistic depiction of their everyday lives – besides the whole stranded in space thing. Sorry, Sandra, you’re on your own with that one.

Late night highlight: Sandra Bullock's teary Leno goodbye

Over the years, a lot (a lot) of famous people have hated on Jay Leno. Sandra Bullock, however, has always been a fan — and she told the Tonight Show staple as much Wednesday, during Leno’s penultimate episode as host.

“You’ve always been so kind,” the Oscar winner told the comedian as tears began to well up. “You were always so welcoming and every single person on your crew was that way consistently, and I just felt special even when I felt very insecure. And everyone, I think, in this room and in this country, has felt that every day that you’ve been in their homes. I’m so grateful that I got to be a part of this.”

Watch the moment in our highlight video below — and keep a box of tissues handy, just in case.

This Week's Cover: Our Entertainers of the Year!

And EW’s Entertainer of the Year is…Sandra Bullock!

She is the gift that keeps on giving. First the 49-year-old Oscar winner teamed up with the uproarious Melissa McCarthy in Paul Feig’s winning buddy cop comedy The Heat. Then, as Dr. Ryan Stone in Alfonso Cuaron’s Gravity, Bullock gives an emotionally naked performance that will likely earn her an Oscar nomination. Bullock’s tremendous talent and range — to say nothing of the woman’s trademark grace and good humor in good times and bad — is what earned her the top spot on our annual list of the most exciting performers in 2013.

Bullock’s one-two punch demanded a fair amount of give and take from the actor. When she signed on to The Heat Bullock didn’t expect to be playing straight man to McCarthy’s firehose-blast of a performance. “Once I realized that that drove the film I had to step back,” she says. “Otherwise I would’ve been fighting for something that would’ve ended up on the cutting room floor. It wasn’t what I was hoping for but the end result was the success of the film and people liking us together.” While Bullock nixes any talk of The Heat 2, she says she’s keen for another project with her fast friend McCarthy.

Neil deGrasse Tyson blasts off on 'Gravity'

Gravity soared out of this world and into box office record books this weekend — but astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson was not impressed.

On Sunday night, Tyson took to Twitter to point out the film’s factual errors. Although he noted that he “enjoyed #Gravity very much,” the director of the American Museum of Natural History’s Hayden Planetarium nitpicked tons of scientific details – from the film’s titles to its catastrophic events.

Check out his Twitter rant  below.  Please note: There are spoilers ahead. READ FULL STORY

Sandra Bullock's likeability meter goes up and up in 'Vogue': 'I am exactly where I want to be now'

Sandra Bullock is Vogue‘s October cover girl, and at 49, she looks just as glam as her first cover in June 1998.

Bullock stars in Gravity with George Clooney (in theaters Oct. 4) and details to writer Jason Gay about her charming life in Austin, Texas, her love for son Louis, how they filmed those heart-stopping space scenes, and casually addresses her post-Jesse James life.

As if we needed more reasons to love her, here are seven things we learned about the unsinkable Sandra:

Lily Collins is the most 'dangerous' celeb search

If you’re curious about Lily Collins and head to the Internet to find out, beware — McAfee has ranked the actress as the most dangerous celeb to search for online.

Collins — who starred in movies such as Mirror, Mirror and The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones — posed the biggest risk of landing on a malicious site, according to the computer security company; last year, Emma Watson topped the list.

Female celebrities were the overwhelming lure to malware; Avril Lavigne, Sandra Bullock, Kathy Griffin, and Zoe Saldana rounded out the top five; Mad Men star Jon Hamm was the only man in the top 10.

A person could be led to malware after doing a general search and clicking on dubious links, but risks increased when searchers added phrases like “free apps” or “nude photos.”
