    The Golden Globes are Hollywood's most intimate awards show.

  • MGM is waiting for a buyer to swoop in and save it from bankruptcy. Bids were technically due today at 2 pm eastern, and they're starting to trickle in. The historied studio has struggled with declining DVD sales and its attempt to re-start production with its latest movie "Fame" was a bomb. A dozen studios and private equity players signed non-disclosure agreements to evaluate the deal and now about six bids are expected.

  • Fairgoers wear special '3D' glasses as they watch a movie on a 3D TV screen.

    If you’ve ever seen a movie in 3-D — “Avatar,” “Up,” “Polar Express” and so on — then you’ve already seen the effect. You wear plastic glasses, and you get a sensation of depth in the movie image. Sometimes the filmmaker pulls cheesy stunts like having a character shove a pole “out of the screen,” nearly into your face; at other times, as in “Avatar,” the 3-D effect lends a subtler depth and realism to a scene.

    I grabbed Comcast CEO Brian Roberts for an interview at CES. After walking the show floor he says it seems that the *consumer* is king, as all these technologies on display give increasing flexibility for how, when, where and what consumers can watch.
