DID CNN SPOIL THE OSCARS?

Social media users got into a tizzy on Monday night (February 10th) after CNN aired a segment on the Academy Awards that appeared to reveal Leonardo DiCaprio as the winner of the Best Performance By An Actor in a Leading Role category. Ted Rowlands' story that took viewers on a tour of the Chicago factory where the Oscar statues are made ended with an image of a gold plate that had Leo's name inscribed on it which led many to believe they had seen it by mistake but E! Online has confirmed that nothing has actually been spoiled.

The website points out that voting for the ceremony doesn't actually begin until February 14th. The nameplates are created for every nominee prior to the show and then get attached to the trophy once the winner has been announced. The plates that get created for nominees who don't win are later recycled.

IPHONES LOADED WITH FLAPPY BIRD LISTED FOR $20,000 ON EBAY

Phones preloaded with the hit game Flappy Bird are being listed for as much as $20,000 on eBay after the app was deleted. The developer of Flappy Bird, which was the most popular free mobile game on Apple App Store and Google's Android Play store, removed the game from the online stores over the weekend. Yesterday, it was revealed he had received a barrage of death threats on Twitter, as players who missed their chance appear to be willing to pay a huge premium on eBay for the game. There were over 4500 iPhones with the game loaded on them listed on eBay yesterday morning, with prices up to $20,300. Nguyen Ha Dong, a Vietnamese, Hanoi-based game developer, announced the grounding of the addictive game in a Tweet on Saturday in which he also apologized to Flappy Bird players. “22 hours from now, I will take Flappy Bird down,” Dong said adding: “It is not anything related to legal issues.” “I cannot take this anymore,” he wrote. The move led to a barrage of abuse, including one tweeter who messaged: “YOU BEST NOT BE DELETING FLAPPY BIRD BECAUSE I WILL MURDER YOU IF U DO.”

SHIA LABEOUF STORMS OUT OF NYMPHOMANIAC PRESS CONFERENCE AFTER QUOTING ERIC CANTONA...THEN ARRIVES AT PREMIERE UNDER A PAPER BAG

He claims he's retiring from public life after a series of bizarre outbursts. And Shia LaBeouf doesn't appear to have changed his mind - if his behavior yesterday is any indication. After arriving at the Nymphomaniac Volume I photocall Grand Hyatt Hotel in Berlin, Germany looking grubby and unkempt - and even missing a bottom tooth - Shia then left the press conference after answering just one question. Then, less than an hour later, he cleaned up for the film's premiere in a smart suit, but donned a paper bag over his head reading “I am not famous anymore.”

RUSSIAN OLYMPIC SNOWBOARDER RECEIVES THOUSANDS OF TEXTS AFTER WRITING HIS CELL PHONE NUMBER ON HIS HELMET

Here's hoping Russian snowboarder Alexey Sobolev has unlimited texting on his phone. Sobolev competed in slopestyle qualifying on Thursday with his cellphone number written on his helmet. It was his idea of trying to get through what he called the boredom of the athletes' village on the mountain. Sobolev says he has received more than 2,000 texts since then. “Most of the messages are good luck messages and messages from the girls,” Sobolev said.  “Some of the messages are not appropriate to read aloud.” Olympic rules prevent Sobolev from competing with his number on his helmet in the finals on Saturday. As far as he's concerned, his mission is already accomplished: “Everyone already knows my number.” His number is: +79250222285

CLINT EASTWOOD SAVES THE LIFE OF CHOKING GOLF DIRECTOR BY PERFORMING THE HEIMLICH

Clint Eastwood came to the rescue of a man that was choking while at a golf tournament in Pebble Beach, California on Wednesday. Eastwood was attending a volunteer party on the eve of the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am when he noticed tournament director Steve John, 50, choking on a piece of cheese.  Eastwood quickly performed the Heimlich Manoeuver while at the Monterey Conference Center. The tournament director acknowledges that it was Clint's fast action that saved his life. “I was drinking water and eating these little appetizers, threw down a piece of cheese and it just didn't work,” Steve said Friday.  “I was looking at him and couldn't breathe. He recognized it immediately and saved my life.”

FURNITURE STORE OWNER GLAD TO LOSE $7 MILLION SUPER BOWL BET

A Super Bowl bet has cost a Houston furniture store owner $7 million after the Seahawks defeated the Broncos. Jim “Mattress Mack” McIngvale said that he would give a full refund to customers who spent $6,000 or more at Gallery Furniture in the two weeks leading up to the game and had their orders delivered by 5 p.m. on Sunday. When the Seahawks delivered a victory on Sunday, McIngvale confirmed he would deliver on his promise with an announcement on the company’s website declaring “Customers Win $7,000,000.” “The accountant is pulling his hair out this morning, but the customers are happy and that’s what’s most important,” McIngvale said. McIngvale says while the accountant initially told him he was “crazy” for making the bet, he is confident it will pay in the long run for his business. “It worked for making the customer say ‘This guy does what he says he’s going to do,’” McIngvale said. He said over 1,000 customers will receive on average $7,000 in refunds from the promotion. He plans to deliver the refunds during a celebratory party at the store on Feb. 17.

BRUNO MARS SUPER BOWL HALFTIME SHOW DRAWS LARGEST AUDIENCE EVER

Sorry, Madonna, but Bruno Mars has smashed your record. The Queen of Pop's 2011 Super Bowl halftime show had previously set an all-time viewing record of 114 million, but Bruno's show on Sunday, which also featured the Red Hot Chili Peppers, has bested it.  115.3 million viewers -- more than turned into the actual game itself -- caught the halftime show. By comparison, Beyonce's halftime show last year drew only 110.8 million viewers.

JENNIFER ANISTON VOTED OUR GLASSES STYLE ICON

Jennifer Aniston may be known for favoring the Little Black Dress on the red carpet, but it seems that her glasses come out top in the style stakes. The actress has been voted the top role model for wearing glasses as we move from the nerdy stereotypes to something a whole lot sexier. Eva Mendes came in close second in the poll, and if she can bag a man as hot as Ryan Gosling it's easy to see why she was voted. For men in specs, Michael Caine and Johnny Depp are the icons they most want to look like.
