Two months ago, an Imgur user named IHasAnOscar posted a photo of him or herself holding an Academy Award statuette in front of an image of the notoriously Oscarless Leonardo DiCaprio. “Yes, it’s real,” the winner captioned it.
Remember four years ago, when everyone got baked and went to see Avatar? Today everyone got a reminder that James Cameron isn't done with us yet. Variety reports he just locked down a deal to make three sequels in New Zealand. Mark your calendars for December 2016, December 2017 and December 2018.
In a new episode of Mythbusters, Adam and Jamie decide to re-enact the end of Titanic. Sort of: They're not in the North Atlantic, and they're not dressed in 1912 garb. But they do figure out a way to share the board, and increase its buoyancy by tying Rose's life vest underneath. Still, as James Cameron points out:…

- Hayden Panettiere has been barred from meeting Amanda Knox.
- Evan Rachel Wood and Marilyn Manson have reportedly broken off their engagement, eight months after he proposed on stage in Paris.
The director adds, of the movie made by his ex-wife: "It wouldn't have been hugely better in 3D, but I'm talking about a future when you don't have to put 'in 3D' on the movie poster anymore."
- Ugh. 90s weight-loss spitfire Susan Powter has a video message for Gabourey Sidibe:
