Nicki Minaj, Tyler Perry earn NAACP Image nominations; Ricky Gervais lines up targets for Golden Globes

By Jen Chaney

Some pop culture stories on our radar this morning...

Nicki Minaj, Willow Smith and Tyler Perry all earn nominations for this year's NAACP's Image Awards. Perry earns a whopping 19 nods, yet somehow "Tyler Perry's Row 11" is completely ignored. (

Ricky Gervais says he may target Charlie Sheen or Mel Gibson in his jokes as host of Sunday's Golden Globe Awards. Kind of assumed that, but nice to have confirmation. (The Hollywood Reporter)

Kanye West apparently owns a watch with his own image on the face, allowing him to say "Stop -- Kanye time!" roughly every two minutes. (Popeater)

Keep reading for Spider-Man movie news and a peek at the new "Battle: Los Angeles" trailer...

"The Rockford Files" TV reboot isn't happening. So much for the possibility of watching Josh Holloway play a sarcastic cop every week. (Deadline)

C. Thomas Howell to appear in new "Spider-Man" movie in the role of ... Ray? (Slash Film)

Programming note: As a way to promote "The Green Hornet," Michel Gondry directs tonight's episode of "Jimmy Kimmel Live." So expect some stop-motion animation and, at the end of the show, for everyone's memories to be erased.

Video: The new trailer for "Battle: Los Angeles."

"Ricky Gervais says he may target Charlie Sheen or Mel Gibson in his jokes as host of Sunday's Golden Globe Awards."

For practice, he bought a Glock, a barrel, and 30 koi.

Although I will bitterly miss the opportunity to drool over Josh Holloway on a weekly basis, he would have been playing a sarcastic P.I., not a cop.

My thoughts exactly, byoo. Although you said it funnier, as always.
