It's safe to say the National Movie Awards, which took place in London last night, are not the Oscars.

Need proof? New Moon took home the Best Fantasy Movie, while Eclipse actually garnered a victory despite the fact that it won't be released for a month. It won Most Anticipated Movie.

Star Robert Pattinson was also honored, receiving the trophy for Best Male Performance. Unable to attend, due to work on Water for Elephants, he recorded the following message for fans:

Meanwhile, Tom Cruise ended the show by winning the Screen Icon award.

Gwyneth Paltrow presented it to him and said: “For over two decades he has shown a bold eagerness to take risks, engaging and enthralling audiences."

He's also jumped on a lot of couches and may have inducted Katie Holmes into a cult. But, hey, how cool was the actor in Jerry Maguire?!?

Below, we've posted a number of photos from the event, highlighted by TomKat looking its cutest/creepiest:

Prince William has not officially proposed yet to Kate Middleton.

Still, reports indicate that we may need to prepare ourself for the Wedding of the Century, a title that might be a lot more dramatic if this century weren't just a decade old.

Wedding of the Century

Author Nicholas Davies, who penned William: King for the 21st Century, told Star Magazine this week:

“William has always said he will be ready for marriage after his 28th birthday - that’s next month. The timing is perfect for a wedding this year.”

What might such a ceremony include? Expensive gowns, lavish bouquets and more jewelry than you'd find in the closet of Joan Rivers. It would be highlighted by the 18-karat sapphire and diamond engagement ring William inherited from his late mother, Diana.

Insiders estimate that three billion people would tune in the the wedding. That's almost as many as have purchased the Kendra Wilkinson sex tape.

Glee paid tribute to Lady Gaga Tuesday. Perhaps you heard.

Critics and fans loved the Fox show's episode, which drew praise from the often-imitated, never duplicated (sorry, Christina Aguilera) star as well.

“I love Glee,” the singer told EW. “I went to a musical theatre school, and used to dream that someday the students would be singing my songs.”

Gaga also posted on Twitter about the Glee episode, called "Theatricality," summing her feelings up simply: "GLEE WAS SO AMAZING! AHHH!!!!"

Pretty much the exact reaction of our critic's Glee review.

This week’s episode saw New Directions do just that, when the club’s female vocalists, and Kurt, donned some of Gaga’s most memorable looks.

They proceeded to rock the house with “Bad Romance.” But it was Rachel’s duet with Shelby of “Poker Face” what stole the show a little later on.

“I don’t channel Lady Gaga,” cast member and Broadway veteran Idina Menzel said of tackling the showstopper. “I’m just in awe of Lady Gaga.”

That's high praise, but well-earned. Here's hoping that Gaga's health problems improve and she returns to the stage in short, awesome order.

Lee DeWyze may have won American Idol last night, but Bret Michaels stole the show.

The recovering rocker appeared on stage with Casey James and sang a duet of his classic, "Every Rose Has Its Thorn." Despite recent health problems, Bret looked right at home in front of the thousands in attendance.

Watch and give the man a hand now...

Other artists on the season nine finale included: Christina Aguilera; every past American Idol champion (except David Cook), who sang together in honor of Simon Cowell; and Janet Jackson.

Check out their performances below. Which was your favorite?

As The Bachelorette spoilers accurately predicted, Rhode Islander Jay was not among Ali Fedotowsky's chosen rose recipients on the season premiere Monday.

But he knows which guy who did get a rose he'd like to see win.

"Well, it was a good time," Jay told Us Weekly following his ouster. "You're just not used to a situation where there are about 50 cameras and 24 other guys."

Now that Jay's out of the running, who should be Ali's final pick?

"Chris from Cape Cod was a really good guy," he said of Chris Lambton, a landscaper, hunk and former high school teacher in New York. "They kind of hit it off really well... He was really funny and she seemed to really like him initially."

A-Fed

Will Ali follow Jay's advice and pick Chris?

One personal detail that Chris Lambton shared with the cameras but not with Ali Fedotowsky, at least not yet: he left New York City to care for his dying mother.

"I was happy he didn't get into the whole story about his mom passing away which is terrible," Jay said. "He could've used that card maybe to play that up."

"He's a really good guy and I really hope it works out for them."

Jay has no hard feelings himself: "Ali's gorgeous - and so nice!"

Jesse James' father denounced his son yesterday for saying he was abused as a kid. But James' sister is standing by him and his allegations against their dad.

While blaming his cheating on child abuse is suspect and may be seen as a cheap cop out, Julie James England tells E! News that if nothing else, it took place.

The beleaguered star's revelations on Nightline are "completely true. I saw it," she says. "I lived there with my dad, he was very aggressive with Jesse and I."

"He did abuse Jesse."

This is not how their father remembers things, however. Larry James and his ex-wife, Janina, have denied Jesse's version of events. Not the case, Julie swears.

Julie says Janina wasn't even married to their father at the time and, in her opinion, they're speaking out now to cash in to make celebrity gossip news.

"I think they are giving stories to make money," says Julie. "Janina was married to my dad when we were teenagers. She doesn't know how angry my dad used to get."

"My [birth] mom had to be my mother and my father," England adds, dismissing her father. "She would back us up. She would do anything for her kids."

They're both estranged from their dad, Julie says, and Larry, who also said Jesse is obsessed with Nazis, has no relationship with either of their children.

Julie also tells E! News that her brother is a changed man since emerging from a 30-day sex addiction rehab program, which Jesse sought out voluntarily.

"He is breaking the mold from what he learned from my dad," Julie says. "He is owning up to the mistakes he made and is trying to move forward in life."

Do you forgive Jesse James?

The Price of Beauty was more than a reality show to Jessica Simpson.

It was a calling.

"I'm not saying I'm changing the world," a teary-eyed Simpson said, accepting an award at the Gracies (which honor women in radio and TV) in Beverly Hills.

"But... to be able to sit down with my Dad and [create] The Price of Beauty, it's similar to missionary work. It was what I was called to do and called to be."

Yes. Her calling was to create a VH1 show in which she, Ken Paves and CaCee Cobb traveled the world to explore definitions of beauty in various cultures.

The Price of Beauty in Jess' case is thousands of dollars a day.

On the series, the always-astute one visited a "fattening hut" in Uganda, munched on some fried cockroaches in Thailand, and walked a couture runway in Paris, etc.

Despite lackluster ratings and bad reviews, "it's changing my life ... women are strong and there is always a life to change, and you are powerful enough to do it!"

The Gracies honored Jessica Simpson for strength and entrepreneurial endeavors in the face of adversity and public scrutiny. Seriously. She got a real award for this.

Earlier in her speech, Simpson quipped, "I'm not used to people talking so nice about me," and explained that she felt "called to the ministry" at church camp at 13.

This is pretty much the exact same thing.

Ever since a judge stuck it to her Monday and ordered her to stay clean until July 6, Lindsay Lohan's ankle bracelet has become the subject of great debate.

Is there a way of getting around it? Will she try to? Can she stay clean despite ferocious cravings for alcohol and drugs? What will happen if she fails a test?

Nice Lips Girlfriend

Well, while Lindsay Lohan's ankle bracelet is pretty much tamper-proof, that doesn't mean she won't try to work around it - after all, she's done so before!

A source says the star, who wore one in '07 under similar circumstances, says she tried to jam the signal with a paper clip and "put tea tree oil on to fool it."

This is something of a red herring, as addicts like Linds "use anything with alcohol to set it off, so they can say, 'Oh, I wasn't drinking. It's my perfume!'"

SEXINESS PERSONIFIED: Who doesn't love high heels, a bikini and a SCRAM device?

On Monday, a judge sentenced Lohan to wear the bracelet and undergo random drug tests until her hearing to determine if she violated her probation.

She is free on $100,000 bail, and could be jailed if she messes up. That's serious incentive not to mess with the thing (and to destroy that cocaine pic).

Lindsay may not need to bother, though. There's a legal loophole she can exploit: Getting crunked off Ambien and water. She's got a prescription! Holla!

Who will prevail in the battle of Lindsay vs. the Ankle Monitor?

It was a slow, but steady rise to the top for Lee DeWyze.

But it all paid off tonight, as the laid back rocker with the sexy, scratchy voice was crowned season nine champion on American Idol!

DeWyze peaked at the ideal time, bringing the crowd and judges to their feet with his recent rendition of "Hallelujah" last week. He then carried that momentum into the finale and defeated a worthy competitor, Crystal Bowersox.

On the Finale

A choked-up DeWyze accepted Ryan Seacrest's congratulations after the announcement and proceeded to sing his cover of "Beautiful Day," which will soon hit radio stations around the country.

There is nothing really controversial about Harper's Bazaar's new feature on Bristol Palin, but she does address sensitive, obvious issues such as teen pregnancy.

She admits "it was kind of humiliating" to get pregnant as a teen. "[I was thinking], 'Great, I'm 17 years old, I'm 40 pounds overweight with a big belly on me.'"

"All my friends are at school watching on the news. This kind of sucks. I thought I would be somewhere warm at college with my friends," the 19-year-old adds.

"But that was definitely not possible with having Tripp"

Bristol Palin, who is raising now 17-month-old Tripp as a single mom after ending her fake engagement from Levi Johnston, says life is not what she envisioned.

But that's also okay. Look what she got in return ...

Bristol Palin and Tripp Johnston

Bristol Palin and Tripp Johnston looking adorable.

"I love my baby more than anything. He's like a Gerber baby. He's the cutest baby in the whole world," she says. "I just want Tripp to be happy and healthy."

Bristol works as a medical assistant and serves as an ambassador to the Candie's Foundation - as an abstinence advocate, no less - to support her little son:

"I'm on my own. I'm really proud of it. I'm a hard worker. I don't have time for friends or anything. It's just like, crap, there is a hockey game tonight that I want to go to but I can't. Or, I do have to go to work today, because I've got bills to pay."

Sarah Palin says she's "very proud of her [daughter] for taking responsibility. It's not an easy road, but it's the right road. Decisions were made, and we can't unwind those decisions. Consequences are being dealt with. I'm sincerely proud of her."

Bristol says her parents had no idea she was sexually active with Levi Johnston, who says Sarah let them share a bedroom when he lived with the family.

"It's not like we sat down and were like, 'Alright, here's the birds and the bees,'" Bristol says. "Truly, my parents just assumed that I wasn't doing anything."
