Rock n’ Roll, CK Skivvies & Robert Downey Jr’s Best

Jump to Comments

It’s Wednesday, and  yesterday a number of big music & awards announcements came out that are definitely worth mentioning. First up, we have the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame’s new inductees: ABBA joins the bands Genesis, the Hollies, The Stooges, and reggae icon Jimmy Cliff in making the  cut — they’ll be inducted this winter.  In non-musical, non-awards show Skivvies News, we have reports that Twilight & New Moon hunk Kellan Lutz has signed on to become the brand new face (and body) of  Calvin Klein Underwear. The undiemaker’s hoping to capitalize on Lutz’s popularity & the intense Twi-mania sweeping the globe. They hope he’ll do for their brand what a once not-as-well known Marky Mark did years ago (before his transformation to Mark Wahlberg, actor). Speaking of actors, the Golden Globe nominees were announced, and that’s very big news indeed as they often share nominees with both the People’s Choice Awards (which are just a few weeks away!) and the upcoming Oscars.  In movies, Up In The Air got a whopping six nominations, and in the TV category, two new shows Glee and Modern Family both received nods. This is in striking contrast to last year when zero brand new shows got recognized (maybe they’re taking a page from the PCA book).  And Sandra Bullock was nominated not once  but twice — for The Proposal and The Blind Side.  Another big movie, Sherlock Holmes, got noticed for itself and for it’s star, Robert Downey Jr.  This film opens on Christmas Day, and if the trailers are any indication, it’s not your mother’s Sherlock Holmes!  Nor is it’s star Robert Downey Jr. a stranger to awards, nominations, or praise (although he’s also had his fair share of troubles). With this in mind, let’s take a look at some of his roles.  Voice your choice in today’s featured poll and let us know which of these Robert Downey Jr. movies is your favorite.

1) Chaplin

2) Iron Man

3) Tropic Thunder

4) The Soloist
