The meeting of the sci-fi franchises in this morning's Daily TwitPic is mind-boggling. There's something here for everyone. Provided you like "Heroes," "Dr. Who" and/or "Star Wars," that is. "Willy Wonka" too, as one perceptive commenter points out.

In the image after the jump you'll see "Heroes" star James Kyson Lee (Hiro's supercharged buddy Ando) chilling at (we presume) WonderCon with a villainous Dalek from the "Dr. Who" universe (think of them as space Nazis) and an orange-complected, short-statured Wookiee, which one commenter refers to as an interspecies pairing between Chewbacca's people and an Oompa Loompa, the unnatural result of a Dalek breeding program.

When Jodelle Ferland isn't driving "Twilight" fans into fits of jealousy with her reading of "The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner" on the set of "Eclipse," she's sharing all sorts of wacky things with her community of followers on Twitter. She loves that social network and engaging directly with her fans. It also gives her the opportunity as a "Twilight" fan to share her excitement over being involved with the series, often in entertaining and unusual ways.

Yesterday, she linked to the picture of a little project she's been working on. A "Twilight"-themed tribute to Easter, which was this past Sunday. She did nice work too; the egg Ferland painted is a capable reproduction of what you see on the cover of the third book, which we'll get to see the young actress in an adaptation of starting June 30. For now, enjoy her eggs-cellent work. Read More...

You might have noticed that we've been a bit more selective with our Daily TwitPics lately. It's all because when you see it pop up in a headline, we want you to associate with something awesome as opposed to just another random celebrity group shot.

Today's pic is undeniably awesome. You all know who Bruce Campbell is, right? You'd better-- this isn't a guy you want to get angry. He's the star of Sam Raimi's "Evil Dead" series and a frequent Raimi collaborator, with bit appearances in all three "Spider-Man" movies. He's also the undisputed king of the one-liner (sorry, David Caruso). I know what you're thinking... who could possibly be crazy enough to hold up Campbell at gunpoint. How about Campbell himself?

It's looking like Chloe Moretz is going to have a good year. Whether or not you think it's unnecessary, people -- including myself -- are excited to see her star in Matt Reeves' vampire flick "Let Me In," a remake of the incredibly popular Swedish original from 2008, "Let the Right One In."

First though, there's "Kick-Ass," the upcoming unlikely superhero action/comedy which hits theaters next month. Moretz plays Hit-Girl, one of the story's costumed vigilantes. She was down at South By Southwest last weekend to promote the movie, along with co-star Christopher Mintz-Plasse, who plays Red Mist, another of the movie's crimefighters. In today's Daily TwitPic, you can see the duo chilling out in the midst of what was undoubtedly a busy press schedule. Read More...

This morning's Daily TwitPic has something for everyone. Twilighters can take pleasure in the fact that their favorite franchise gets a pop culture shout. Lovers of comedy can appreciate the look of raw excitement on Aziz Ansari's face at the sight of a "New Moon" werewolf. And let's face it: everyone can enjoy Ansari. The dude is hilarious, even when he's ranting about IMAX injustices.

That pretty much sums up your twitpic for this morning. Ansari can't believe what he's seeing in "New Moon," that "those kids are wolves!" He apparently missed the trailers. And TV spots. And bajillion stills scattered across the Internet. Or maybe he's just playing up his excitement, for the sake of comedy. Yeah, more likely that. Read More...

And here I thought nothing in this world could be more disturbing than the Robert Pattinson body pillow. One day I'll learn life's most important truth: there's always something more disturbing.

This time, I blame "New Moon" actor and Wolf Pack-er Alex Meraz for finding it. There was a TwiCon over the weekend that he attended, and he snapped a pic while he was there of a Robert Pattinson/Edward Cullen blow-up doll. Reading the twitpic's comments, it seems that blow-up RPattz is something of a regular at "Twilight" gatherings, and a popular one too. That's cool... but the doll still sort of creeps me out. Decide for yourself after the jump. Read More...

One of the most-deserved awards given on Sunday night at the 82nd Annual Academy Awards was the Best Supporting Actor statue to Christoph Waltz, for his incredible performance as "Jew Hunter" Hans Landa in Quentin Tarantino's World War II fairy tale, "Inglourious Basterds." In another year, Tarantino could have walked away from the evening with more than just the one Oscar for Waltz. "Basterds" is easily one of the filmmaker's best efforts, and that's thanks in no small part to Waltz.

For whatever could have been, the Tarantino's colleagues and friends were plenty excited on Oscar night. They went out to celebrate after the show, as you can see in today's Daily TwitPic. After the jump you can see Tarantino and Waltz joined by Omar Doom, the Basterd with the best real-life name ever, and Zoe Bell, who starred in "Death Proof" (Tarantino's half of "Grindhouse").

Even though "The Hurt Locker" ended up being the evening's big winner at Sunday's 82nd Annual Academy Awards show, it was James Cameron's sprawling 3-D sci-fi epic "Avatar" that was on everybody's lips. And in Ben Stiller's case it was more of a full body thing.

Stiller did more with his night than paint himself blue and speak in native Na'vi (which sounded pretty authentic to my ears). He was also busy backstage with his camera, documenting the goings-on there for posterity. He even shares a look behind the Oscars in today's Daily TwitPic, which you can find after the jump.

The 82nd Annual Academy Awards happened last night. Let's not make a big thing of it. Wait... you want to? Oh all right. GO "THE HURT LOCKER"!!!! YOU RAWK, KATHRYN BIGELOW!!!!

Better? In all seriousness, it was a solid awards show. There were relatively few surprises, and those few were all welcome (like "Hurt Locker" taking Best Picture AND Director over "Avatar"). The new format mostly worked. Canning the musical numbers left a lot more time for lengthy clips and classy presentations, like the previous collaborator-presenting-nominee format for the Best Actor/Actress categories.

Of course, the real bummer about watching a show like this on TV is not actually being there. It's great to see the winners in hi-def closeups as they deliver their acceptance speeches, but actually feeling the energy in the room takes things to a whole new level. Luckily, "Toy Story 3" director and Twitter-lover Lee Unkrich came prepared with a camera. And he snapped a pic of his seated view of the stage, which wasn't half-bad considering he wasn't actually nominated for anything. You can see for yourself after the jump. Read More...

Warmoth had completely different picks for yesterday's Twitter Pic of the Day shouts. I kaiboshed them all after I saw the image you'll find after the jump.

Whatever you want to call him -- P. Diddy, Puffy, Sean John... hell, even Sean Combs -- Diddy is a cultural icon. The rapper/producer/clothing designer/sometime-actor is constantly busy with something. Even if it's just vacation. Which is what appears to be the case right now, as today's Daily TwitPic shows him posing for a photo op with one of the art world's most well-known figures, the Mona Lisa. I have to ask though: which one is the more priceless work of art? Weigh the possibilities for yourself after the jump. Read More...
