Check out the full list – limited to creative types (stars, directors, and producers) and the money they earned from movies — and tell us what you find interesting. It’s not really a surprise — we all know Oscar noms don’t typically align with blockbusters — but none of this year’s Oscar acting nominees make the cut.James Cameron tops Vanity Fair‘s carefully calculated list of Hollywood’s Top 40 earners in 2010, with an estimated $257 million (all but $4 million of it tied to Avatar, and that does not include $50 million of Avatar money from 2009). Johnny Depp comes in at No. 2 with an estimated $100 million comprised primarily of his paychecks for Alice in Wonderland, the fourth Pirates of the Caribbean film, and The Tourist.

Barbara Walters has revealed eight of the 10 people on her Most Fascinating list, and as usual, it’s a puzzling mix. The list includes:
Justin Bieber: I really hope he sings a version of “Baby” in which he replaces the word “baby” with “Barbara.” Barbara, Barbara, Barbara, oooooh! That would indeed fascinate me.
Sandra Bullock: Agree! The whole first half of 2010 was Sandra Bullock time. Also, everyone loves her.
LeBron James: Was that ESPN special “fascinating” to you?
Jennifer Lopez: Hm.
Kate Middleton: Agree. A new, real-life princess. How fascinating.
Sarah Palin: This is her third year in a row on the list. For someone who despises the “mainstream media,” she sure gets a lot of coverage.
Betty White: It might seem like ages ago that Betty White hosted Saturday Night Live, but that was technically this year!
The cast of The Jersey Shore: Oy.
Usually ABC reveals nine people before the show airs, leaving just the numero uno most fascinating person a mystery, but I guess this year they want to build extra intrigue into the Dec. 9 airing.

Charmed! Today came the announcement via Universal that Sandra Bullock, Meryl Streep, and Oprah Winfrey would all co-star in Michael Patrick King’s untitled project about a home-shopping channel. Wait a tick — you’re telling me I can get Hollywood’s three wisest women for one easy payment of $12?! (Or, $17, if King decides to go the 3-D route.) Can they come with a bonus Slap Chop too?

Deadline.com first reported the story.) Currently in negotiations for the part after Natalie Portman dropped out due to scheduling issues, Bullock would star opposite Robert Downey, Jr. as an astronaut on a remote space station who survives a disaster and must fight to return home to her daughter. (Cuarón also wrote the screenplay with his grown son Jonas.)EW has confirmed that Sandra Bullock is within reach of snagging the lead in director Alfonso Cuarón’s sci-fi thriller Gravity, her first film since winning an Oscar for The Blind Side. (
The role is reportedly a massive one, with Bullock the only actor on screen for long stretches of the film. It’s a curious choice; Bullock hasn’t done straight-forward science fiction since 1993′s Demolition Man. She had been reputedly circling the action comedy Most Wanted with Ryan Reynolds, and the 9/11 drama Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close with Tom Hanks, two movies that seem more obviously in her wheelhouse. With this film, however, she appears to be heeding the advice of Paul Haggis, her director in 2005′s Crash, from EW’s recent cover story on Bullock’s career: “I think she should do whatever scares her, whatever makes her really uncomfortable.”
What do you make of this choice, PopWatchers? Would you rather Bullock stick to more familiar territory? Or are you intrigued by her attempt to branch out into a new genre?

Forbes, we can now add another gold star to the happy column: The finance mag has named Bullock the highest-paid actress in Hollywood, estimating her income from June 2009-June 2010 to be $56 million. It’s all thanks to the back-end haul she raked in from both The Proposal (worldwide gross: $320 million) and The Blind Side ($310 million). She’s rich, biatch!What a year it’s been for Sandra Bullock. Professionally, tops. Personally, pits. But thanks to
But of course, as one of the industry’s most successful earners of the past decade, Bullock’s been rolling in dough for a long time now. Since she doesn’t exactly need this latest wad of cash (I doubt her mattresses are thin), let’s spend it for her, shall we? She could buy a) a year’s supply of sparkly, Oscar-y formal wear for herself and Betty White; b) a lifetime, paid-in-full account at Pizza.net; or c) a presidential pardon for All About Steve.

Sandra Bullock made a surprise appearance at Tuesday’s Nashville Rising: A Benefit Concert for Flood Recovery. When her Blind Side co-star Tim McGraw and his wife, Faith Hill, invited her to introduce Faith, she thought she’d come and do some funny bits, have a wardrobe malfunction. But after hearing how generous the community had been when it came time to take care of one another, she wanted to give them something more: a song. She strapped on a guitar, asked the audience to be quiet, and launched into “Smoke on the Water.” Watch the clip below. (Yes, this is a comedy bit, and Bullock’s streak of charming public appearances at a time when most celebrities would be asking for complete privacy continues to keep fans firmly in her corner.)
P.S. If you were wondering, Miley Cyrus, who was among the artists delivering real performances, did tame her wardrobe for the event. She wore pants.
shocking the very easily shockable. The next day, Dustin Hoffman and Jason Bateman got carried away by the romantic mood lighting at a Lakers-Celtics game and wound up K-I-S-S-I-N-G on the Jumbotron. Last night’s MTV Movie Awards yielded a twofer: Sandra Bullock and Scarlett Johansson exchanged a quick peck during Sandy’s MTV Generation Award acceptance speech, and Get Him to the Greek guys Jonah Hill and Russell Brand made out in the audience.
