Celebritology 2.0: December 2, 2007 - December 8, 2007

Creative Captioning: Two for the Road

What would Elvis do if he happened upon these two in a dark alley? Well, he'd of course embrace them as his two main women -- wife Priscilla and daughter Lisa Marie. Even though Halloween was over a month ago, the two spackled on the face paint and donned matching black ensembles for Thursday evening's Lunchbox Hunger Relief benefit in New York. But, which is which? A hint: Priscilla (most of her) is 62 and Lisa Marie is, like, a musician. So it's obvious, right? You know the drill. Submit your fantastical captions below and Monday we'll pick the top five entries to elevate to a place of prominence here in the blog. Just one rule: Don't be cruel. (Getty Images) Top Captions: 1.

Celebrity Jailbird: Injustice Averted?

Celebrity Jailbird (In)Justice? As of this writing, Kiefer Sutherland -- who started serving his jail sentence late yesterday afternoon -- has already served (approximately) Lindsay Lohan's 84 minute jail stint nine times over. And, at first glance, Sutherland appears to be getting a rough deal compared to some other celebrity offenders (see below) to see the inside of a jail for only minutes this year. But looking a little bit closer, Sutherland -- who was convicted of drunk driving while on probation for a previous DUI offense -- may be yet another example of the special rules governing celebrity justice. Sure, the "24" star agreed to serve 48 days, but initially had an agreement in place to serve 18 days, then return to complete filming the remainder of "24's" season before finishing out his sentence. While it isn't exactly 84 minutes, it's difficult to imagine myself getting a dispensation to,...

Highbrow: Weighing the Oprah Effect on Politics

Barack Obama and wife Michelle (left) with Oprah at an August Fundraiser. (Reuters) "My money isn't going to make any difference," Oprah Winfrey told Larry King prior to an August fundraising party where the daytime talk show queen helped to raise $3 million for Democratic presidential hopeful Barack Obama. "My value to him, my support of him is probably worth more than any other check that I could write." Last week, Winfrey formally declared her intention to hit the campaign trail in support of Obama. First in Iowa, then New Hampshire and South Carolina -- all key states early in the election run-up. Mused The Post's own Gene Robinson: "Now we're about to see whether the "Oprah effect" can do for Barack Obama what it did for Leo Tolstoy." If Yahoo stats are any indicator, the Oprah factor may already be moving the needle for Obama. Searches on the...

List-a-licious: The -est of 2007

It isn't only Santa who gets listy in December. Lazy observers of culture (present company sheepishly included) also turn to the list -- a convenient way to create splashy content with minimal reportage. Here at Celebritology central, we've been accumulating an uber-list of this year's smartest, dumbest, couply-est, searchy-est, buzziest, etc., crafted in an attempt to put a period at the end of the long, bloated, over-wrought sentence that I am writing was 2007. Grab some Earl Grey, pop in the ear buds and spend a little time with the bumper crop of lists below. And if you know of one not yet listed (duh), please add to the comments section. The 20 Most Talked About Celebs of 2007 How Paris Hilton beat out Britney Spears to top this list, I'll never understand. Oh, and if you're not Australian, stop reading after no. 13. Top 10 Smoking Hot Couples of...

Top TV Crushes of 2007

I'm a more knowledgeable person after spending the last couple of hours tabulating your TV crushes. I'm not sure all this knowledge is worth having, but just in case, I pass it along to you anyway: -- There are a lot of TV characters. -- For every TV character there is some shmo (or shmo-ette) somewhere on a couch crushing on that character. We nominated over 130 different characters. -- You think I kid? There are at least two more of you out there (in addition to me) thinking dirty thoughts about "Flight of the Conchords's" Jemaine and, then, of course the anonymous poster who copped to crushing on Brian, the animated dog from "Family Guy." Yes, animated. Yes, dog. -- You are very serious about your TV crushes. Even typically sarcastic commenters (you know who you are) adopted a serious, get-down-to-business tone to talk about their attraction to Kristin...
