"Girls" writer/director/star Lena Dunham knows a thing or two about taking artistic risks, so it should come as no surprise that the 26-year-old had plenty of praise for the Harmony Korine-directed vacation fever dream "Spring Breakers."
Lena took to Twitter to offer her accolades, and in the process, made one happy girl out of star Selena Gomez.
It's nice to see two of our favorite leading ladies making nice, isn't it?
In case you were too busy staring at Channing Tatum to get the message, the 2013 MTV Movie Awards are fast approaching, which means it's pretty much all movies, all the time until April 14. And we're not the only ones excited about our annual handing-out of Golden Popcorns.
Our friends over at Seventeen are hosting a poll in which you (yes, YOU!) will pick the Biggest Teen Badass of the year. Is it Chloe Grace Moretz in "Kick-Ass 2"? Logan Lerman in "Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters"? Lily Collins in "The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones"? Or Jaden Smith in "After Earth"?
Cast your vote after the jump, and find out who wins during our Movie Awards celebration!
We know you could never forget, BUT JUST IN CASE, here's a Public Service Announcement courtesy of "Pretty Little Liars" actress Troian Bellisario. She wants you to tune into tonight's season three finale!
But there's even more good news for Troian today. The actress' film "Consent" (about a Manhattan family struggling with the suicide of their eldest daughter), is out digitally.
Tech support, apparently. The "Pitch Perfect" star took to Twitter today to share her love for computer-savvy studs—and we can't disagree. (Excuse us while we update our OkCupid profile...)
It's good Anna has someone looking at her computer, because how else would she cast her vote for MTV Movie Awards nominee "Pitch Perfect"? The musical flick, starring Anna, Rebel Wilson and Anna Camp, is up for four Golden Popcorns!
FROM MTV NEWS: If we had the ability to rename this blog Ryan Gosling Crush And Other Things That Are Almost As Important, we'd consider it. Seriously. But since we don't, we'll continue to provide any and all Ryan Gosling-related materials as often as we can without shirking our other responsibilities.
Which brings us to this nifty exclusive that debuted earlier on MTV News. It's a look at some brand-new snaps of both Ryan and his "The Place Beyond the Pines" co-stars Eva Mendes and Bradley Cooper in their new film out March 29. Plus an interview with director Derek Cianfrance. So get your Gosling fill until release day with these hot pics.

Following this week's super-successful fundraising effort for the "Veronica Mars" movie, star Kristen Bell took to Twitter today to thank her loyal fans.
How high will the dollar amount go? I guess that's all up to you!

"Glee" went a shade darker this week, taking a (only somewhat shiny) look at sex work and dabbling in a storyline that’s got "internet predator" written all over it. Not to say that there weren’t mash-ups!
Last week, Finn came clean to Mr. Schue about his kiss with Emma. Schue responds to this epic betrayal by making Finn into his flunky, treating him like Anna Wintour treats a 22-year-old fashion intern.
Finally, Artie calls a summit to discuss. Shocker, everyone: Finn and Schue must work out their tensions through song, playing into this week’s glee club theme: epic musical feuds! Because according to Schue, “sorry won’t cut it.” That's right—an inconsequential singing contest is the only apology he’ll accept.

Sometimes when "The Vampire Diaries" goes on hiatus for two weeks, so many exciting things happen upon its return that I don't even know how to start a recap! For instance, I could start by talking about the fact that humanity-less Elena wants all of us to know that she simply doesn't care. And I believe her, except: Isn’t it a sign that you care if you keep telling people you don’t?
I was also thinking I’d write about Silas, because even though he hardly figured into this episode, they made a big deal about this whole multi-hospital-blood-bag-thievery thing, and Damon’s convinced that Silas is the culprit, because he’s been frozen for however many thousands of years and needs to feed.
Oh, and there’s the obvious title choice: "Bring it On" is an ode to the classic cheerleader movie about spunky girls and spunky attitudes, and since Elena rejoined cheerleading, you could say it was a reference. But there’s also the fact that she’s fighting with everyone, especially Caroline, who she tries to stake, and she’s all tough girl to everyone, like, bring it on, bitches!
But what I’m really going to go with is my new favorite subject: Elena. Yes, folks, you read that right. I freaking love Elena. Now, I’m guessing it won’t last for long (she’s usually such a bore), but tonight, she was fun, sharp, logical and, of course, pretty bad. I’m going to elaborate.
Even though the "Veronica Mars" movie reached its $2 million goal on Kickstarter yesterday (and in record time), the internet hasn't hushed about the highly anticipated adaptation. And we know at least one Girl (and her dad) who's enthused about it: Lena Dunham.
The "Girls" creator took to Twitter today to let her followers know that she's planning to secure primo placement for this film's screening. We hope to be right there with you, Lena!
If you weren't tweeting about the Pope or "Veronica Mars" today, it's likely few paid much mind to what you had to say, because those two topics were BLOWING UP the Twittersphere.
After news broke on EW.com that a "Veronica Mars" movie could happen if fans donated to a $2 million Kickstarter campaign, the internet rallied. As of this writing, more than $1 million has been raised towards that goal—and in mere hours!
Among the celebs tweeting their support was actress Krysten Ritter, who had a role on the series as Gia Goodman.
