Why was Brock Lesnar, the heel, being portrayed as the underdog? Why was Undertaker, the aging veteran clutching to the glory of his streak, getting the weekly upperhand over the “beast incarnate?” What was going on with WWE’s booking?

As far as the Lesnar-Undertaker match went, the “Road to WrestleMania” had been a perplexing one. Instead of pursuing the easiest storyline imaginable–let Lesnar look like a monster beforeUndertaker edges out a victory at WrestleMania 30–WWE booked everything in reverse. Of course Undertaker’s undefeated streak was going to remain intact, but why not give fans somereason to believe Lesnar would win? Why make it so clear that Lesnar did not stand a chance?

The answer: he did stand a chance. In the epitome of a shock finish, Brock Lesnar defeated The Undertaker via an F5 to end The Deadman’s WrestleMania streak.
Undertaker would not become 22-0 at Sunday’s WrestleMania 30. He instead becomes 21-1 and could be done wrestling at the annual “showcase of the immortals.”
The crowd gave Undertaker a gracious ovation as he worked his way to the back.

Double the tuxedoes, double the hotness. Angelina Jolie (in Saint Laurent) and Brad Pitt (in Valentino) classed up the BAFTAs red carpet Sunday evening at the Royal Opera House in London, where they were on hand to support 10-times nominee "12 Years a Salve," which Pitt stars in and produced. Angelina Jolie hasn't done many of red carpets lately- the last time was in November when she was honored at the Academy's Board of Governors event but this sleek look was certainly worth the wait. Let's be honest, she completely OWNS the sexy menswear-inspired style and it's one a ton of other actresses who have been attempting this awards season, as it is to vary he degrees of success(ahem, Amy Adams).

Tennis superstar Venus Williams may be a champ, but that doesn't mean she's too proud to concede a loss.
Or is it only a wily strategy that she's just listed her sun-splashed Hollywood Hills pad at $101,000 less than she paid for it eight years ago? Real estate blog Curbed calls the $1,799,000 asking price a "meager play" for a three-bedroom midcentury post-and-beam home with panoramic canyon views. We can't help but wonder whether she's hoping to incite a bidding war.
Her home at 2521 Astral Drive in Los Angeles is just one of "numerous properties" that she and sister Serena own. As listing agent Christine Taylor told Zillow Blog: "They can't live in all of them, so she decided it was time to sell, especially now that the market is stronger again. This property was close to all the Hollywood activities, but she was not using it very much."
Anyway, Williams' website makes clear that her heart isn't really in L.A. the way it is in Florida -- where her interior design business, V Starr, is based, and where she owns an enormous estate with Serena ("They each have their own identical wings and share common areas," Trulia Luxe Living blog reports. In the "My Favs" section of her site, Venus writes: "Some cities speak to my heart more than others. For instance, I have a house in L.A. but I don’t really go out when I am there. But other places have something – some kind of energy – that makes me want to explore them."
Still, the athlete-cum-designer clearly put a lot into the L.A. house. "She really took her time and redecorated the entire thing in 2007 and 2008," Taylor told Zillow. "She put in a new deck, redid all the floors, added the fireplace and all the hardware is new."

Sunday night was big for Kerry Washington.
The "Scandal" actress not only debuted her adorable baby bump on the red carpet of the Golden Globe Awards, but she and her husband, former NFL player Nnamdi Asomugha, also made their public debut as a married couple. Kerry's man did not accompany her on the red carpet, but he did escort her to the Weinstein Company and Netflix's official afterparty. According to sources, the duo were holding hands and smiling and were even captured on camera, marking their first public photo since getting married in a secret ceremony in Idaho back in June.
The press-shy lovebirds are rarely photographed together, and they managed to keep their relationship under the radar while they dated. The announcement of their nuptials surprised the media. And while most celebs are quick to show off their wedding-day photos, the 36-year-old and her hubby have still kept their bride-and-groom pics to themselves.
In fact, Kerry and Nnamdi are so tightlipped about their love that while her pregnancy was first speculated in October, she didn't confirm the news until Sunday's red carpet, telling Ryan Seacrest, "I feel like I have the best date of the night, my little accessory here."

Check out the vid to see Kerry and Nnamdi's first public photo as man and wife, and be sure to tune in to "The Insider" on TV tonight for the latest in entertainment news.

In Hollywood, you win some and you lose some … and then you really lose some — just ask everyone involved with "Storage 24." The British sci-fi/horror flick grossed a less than whopping $72 at the U.S. box office.
No, we didn't forget any zeroes there.

Granted, "Storage 24" only played at one theater and only for one week, but something tells us there was a probably a reason for that.

The story revolves around a group of people trapped inside a London storage facility with "an unwelcome guest." Dun dun dun. Meanwhile, outside of the unit, the entire city is on lockdown because a military plane crashed and scattered classified documents all over the streets … or something.

The independently produced movie received a 22 percent audience rating on Rotten Tomatoes — as rated by people who most likely saw it on DVD rather than the lonely few who trekked to the theater — not the worst rating ever received. But earning less in theaters than the cost of a new pair of sneakers is significant failure for any film.
So how did this ill-fated movie get started in the first place?

Like all movies start: with an idea. More specifically, "Star Trek Into Darkness" alum Noel Clarke was struck with inspiration.

"I was literally at a storage facility with a family member walking around the corridors thinking, 'This place is crazy,'" he explained to Movie Web. "There's no windows. There are the same lights — and if you walk too far and try to find your way back, you find yourself looking down a corridor and going, 'Where is everyone?' I thought, 'Wouldn't it be crazy if there was a serial killer that was killing people in one of these places?' One day I woke up and I was like, 'Don't be ridiculous. A serial killer is ridiculous. An alien would be better.'"
Clarke then co-wrote the script, gave himself the starring role, and got Johannes Roberts to direct. According to Clarke, it was Roberts who hired the rest of the cast, which included Colin O'Donaoghue ("The Rite"), Antonia Campbell-Hughes ("Bright Star"), Laura Haddock ("Captain America" and "The Inbetweeners Movie"), and a few others who are slightly more obscure.
But it seemed that even before the film's theatrical release in the United States, Clarke had some sense that it might not be a hit.

"You take the film for what it is. We had no money," Clarke told IndieWire before adding, "Even if it doesn't do great in the U.S. ... we'll plot and plan for the next one."

"A Perfect Man" starring Liev Schreiber and Jean Tripplehorn was the second-lowest-grossing film of the year, tallying a paltry $445, but since the budget for that project was undoubtedly much larger than "Storage 24"'s, the biggest box-office failure probably fared better (financially, at least) than the runner-up.

Still, it would be nice if Clarke's next effort can break sales into — at least — the triple digits.

On Dec. 27, as Britney Spears kicked off her much-hyped "Piece of Me" residency at Las Vegas's Planet Hollywood resort, descending from the vaulted ceiling in a futuristic gilded cage while wearing what appeared to be her rhinestoned nude bodysuit from the 2000 VMAs, the burning question inside the 4,600-seat theater was: Was she singing live?
The answer: Eh, probably not. Not most of the time, anyway. The relatively intimate setting made that pretty obvious. But then, there was another, almost equally valid question: Did it even matter? And once again, the answer was, well, no. Not really.

Real-time reactions inside the theater to Britney's 90-minute Vegas revue — which included her flying through the air dressed as a snowy Christmas angel for "Everytime"; a reenactment of the Cardio Barre choreo from her "3" video; a totally-'90s, ravey "Scream & Shout" duet with a virtual, Max Headroom-like; a rainforest performance of "Toxic" (toxic rain?) during which Britney scaled a giant plastic tree; and several dance routines seemingly inspired by Paula Abdul's "Cold-Hearted" video — were mixed. Some spectators seemed peeved by Britney's apparent lack of actual singing, tweeting their snarky disdain:
