This Just In: Marie Osmond's son dies, Oprah gives Art Smith a big check, "Hurt Locker" producer in trouble with Academy Awards

Marie Osmond's 18-year-old son committed suicide Friday night, Los Angeles police confirmed Sunday. Michael Blosil, a student at the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising, died after jumping from his L.A. apartment building. "My family and I are devastated and in deep shock by the tragic loss of our dear Michael," Osmond said in a statement.
When Oprah asked former personal chef Art Smith what he wanted for his 50th birthday, he thought a treadmill might be nice. The talk show icon had bigger plans, and gave Smith a $250,000 check for his Common Threads nonprofit, which supports healthy eating programs for children -- the kind Michelle Obama asked for, reports the Associated Press.
A producer for the Academy Award-nominated "The Hurt Locker" has apologized for sending e-mails asking for last-minute votes for his picture instead of "a $500 million film" like . . .oh, "Avatar"? Nicolas Chartier broke academy rules by dissing a competitor and now faces sanctions, but the movie is still in contention for Best Picture on Sunday's show.
