Quentin Tarantino to receive Music + Film Award; Jim Carrey does 'Black Swan' on SNL

Some of the pop-culture-oriented stories making the rounds on the Web ...

Quentin Tarantino will be the first recipient of the Critics' Choice Music+Film Award at Friday's Critics' Choice Awards. Which is pretty cool. Maroon 5 will pay musical tribute to one of the director's more memorable scenes during the ceremony. Which is slightly less cool. (Critics' Choice Awards)

Elijah Wood will return as Frodo Baggins in "The Hobbit," even though Frodo Baggins is not technically in "The Hobbit." This late-breaking Friday news led to intense discussion and meditation on the part of Tolkien fans, who understandably are still processing the news. (Deadline)

F. Scott Fitzgerald in 3-D? Courtesy of Baz Luhrmann, this could actually become reality. (Vulture)

"Ghostbusters 3" might happen. Or possibly not. Still hard to say, really, according to Ivan Reitman. (The Playlist)

Emma Stone, Gemma Arterton, Andrew Garfield, Tom Hardy and Aaron Johnson were all nominated for the British Academy of Film and Television Awards' Orange Wednesdays Rising Star Award. Members of the public vote for the up-and-comer most deserving of the honor; the winner will be announced Feb. 13, when the BAFTAs are held. (The Hollywood Reporter)

Natalie Portman, Colin Firth, David O. Russell and Robert Duvall were all honored at the Palm Springs Film Awards on Sunday. (Pop 2 It)

And speaking of our "Black Swan," here's Jim Carrey doing his version on "Saturday Night Live," in case you missed it. This goes without saying, but prepare for over-the-top physicality of Fire Marshal Bill proportions.
