Ricky Gervais and Will ArnettDunder Mifflin's Scranton branch is about to lose its fearless leader, and the men who would replace Michael Scott are lining up in droves.

Steve Carell's departure from "The Office" is just a few weeks away, and while we wait to see if he's replaced by a pre-existing colleague or a newcomer, we can at least add a couple of new names to the speculation pile: according to Entertainment Weekly, original "Office" star Ricky Gervais and "Arrested Development" favorite Will Arnett are coming to Scranton.

Gervais and Arnett are slated to appear in the one-hour season finale this May, arriving a few weeks after Carell makes his exit. There's no word on whether or not Gervais and Arnett might cross over with the previously announced Will Ferrell, but a blogger can certainly dream.

In a field of ten nominees, it's seemingly once again down to two familiar competitors. Just as "The Hurt Locker" and "Avatar" raced neck-and-neck throughout the 2009 Academy Awards, tonight's show appears to be a similar throwdown between the popular favorite and the critical darling: "The Social Network" versus "The King's Speech."

But is the race really down to two? What of the other eight contenders? We've got some analysis after the jump, and make sure to cast YOUR vote for the Best Picture winner in our poll!

When it comes to the Best Actor race, no one is stammering about who's going to win.

All signs point to a decisive victory for Colin Firth, who delivered a masterful turn as a stuttering king-in-the-making in Tom Hooper's "The King's Speech," on Sunday night (February 27) at the 2011 Oscars. As a veritable king himself lording over awards season, Firth's virtual sweep is likely to end this Sunday with an exclamation mark, not a stutter.

That's not to say there aren't other deserving candidates in the Best Actor category — candidates that could pull an upset and overcome the seemingly insurmountable Firth, in fact. After the jump, read our analysis and weigh in yourself by voting on YOUR pick for Best Actor!

The Oscars are just three days away now, and as the race draws to a close, it feels like it's getting tighter than ever.

In the Best Supporting categories, "The Fighter" co-stars Christian Bale and Melissa Leo were long considered the frontrunners for their categories.

But is she really a shoe-in for the top prize? Can someone stand in Portman's way? We're fielding that question past the jump, and asking you to join us by voting on YOUR pick for Best Actress!

TerminatorSo, not only is Arnold Schwarzenegger returning to Hollywood, he's also reportedly considering a long-awaited comeback to the "Terminator" franchise.

A report dropped yesterday that Universal is mulling over a "Terminator 5" spearheaded by "Fast Five" director Justin Lin and his "Fast & Furious" collaborator Chris Morgan, with Schwarzenegger back behind the wheel of the series as well.

Potentially big news to be sure, but if you can cut through that initial excitement, perhaps you'll see the question I'm currently wrestling with: is this a good move for both the "Terminator" brand and for Schwarzenegger's career?

G.I. JoeWith Cobra already on the rise, it's time to start looking towards "G.I. Joe 2." There's just one problem: the sequel lacks a director, following the official departure of Stephen Sommers earlier this year.
