Sophie Okonedo went into promotional blitz mode thanks in part of her latest film project, "The Secret Life of Bees."

The UK-based actress was seen at the Toronto Int'l Film Festival with her "Bees" castmates for the premiere and a press conference. According to several media sources, "Bees" jumpstarted the Oscar buzz. So does this mean a possible nomination for Sophie?!?!

Hopefully by the time "Bees" gets release, I've seen The Women and Tyler Perry's "The Family That Preys." The last film I saw was "The Dark Knight"...and I cannot wait until it gets release on DVD.

Anyone saw the "Just Stand Up" performance at Fashion Rocks? If not, press play...

Did the performance leave you with "WOW" or "Damn"?

Speaking of "Damn", Akon either enjoys hitting folks at random or someone seriously got on his bad side...again. Check it out...

Moving right along...

Alicia Keys (Sophie's "Bees" co-star) knock out a three-song medley that included "Superwoman", "Like You'll Never See Me Again" and "No One" on BET's "106 & Park."

You've see The Women and the family that preys... can you please tell me how they were?

I am definitely going to see Secret Life of the Bees but since both the women and the tyler perry movie come out this weekend I have been kind of torn. I am leaning towards The Women but would love to get your opinion.
