RELATIONSHIP ADVICE

IT'S CALLED COMMON SENSE

I know the holidays are over, but Valentine's Day is fast approaching, and I have some free advice to all the boyfriends, girlfriends, husbands and wives out there. When it comes to your significant other, DO NOT re-gift.

MOVIES

HERE COME THE OSCARS (WE HOPE)

The Golden Globes are over (well, the "press conference" anyway), and that means it's time to gear up for the Oscars.

With the writers still on strike, who knows how the ceremony will play out (or if there will even be one), but that doesn't mean you can't enjoy awards season.

Entertainment Weekly has compiled a list of the top movies you need to see before Oscar night.

They're ranked in order of their "likelihood to be nominated."

1. No Country for Old Men

2. Atonement

3. Juno

4. Michael Clayton

5. There Will Be Blood

6. Into the Wild

7. American Gangster

8. The Diving Bell and the Butterfly

9. Sweeney Todd

10. Charlie Wilson's War
