Watching the Watchmen

Kate Winslet at the OscarsIt's been a busy weekend, and here's our round up of the hottest searches.

Rising steadily through the search ranks is Watchmen - the new superhero movie based on the DC Comics graphic novel of the the same name. Today it is premiering in London's Leicester Square, so if you can get down there you'll be able to do plenty of celeb-spotting, since this film has been hotly anticipated.

Perhaps the hottest search of the past couple of weeks is Jade Goody. Her heartbreaking tale has captured the nation as we watch her highs and lows, especially this weekend when she had her fairytale wedding to fiance Jack Tweed and was allowed to spend her wedding night with her new husband despite his curfew.

Another popular story in the news over the last week was 13-year-old Alfie Patten, who became the father of a baby girl with his 15-year-old girlfriend. Alfie bravely promised to be a good dad and has discounted claims that he is not the baby's father by submitting to DNA paternity tests.

It's week 7 of Dancing on Ice and the celebrities remaining are Donal MacIntyre, Coleen Nolan, Roxanne Pallett, Ray Quinn, Zoe Salmon and Jessica Taylor. The celebrities are turning out better performance with every show and it'll soon be time for the exicting final in March!

The Academy Awards - also known as the Oscars - were a huge success for British talent this Sunday with Slumdog Millionaire winning eight trophys and Kate Winslet won the gong for Best Actress, which she has several times previously been nominated for. Check out the movie The Reader for which she was nominated.

With pancake day taking place tomorrow, recipes and toppings are popular searches at the moment. As are searches for Mardi Gras which is the same festival but generally involves less pancakes around the world!

The Carling Cup Final is fast approaching - will Manchester United retain their undefeated title or will Spurs snatch it away from them next Sunday? Have you bought your tickets to the match at Wembley Stadium? If you haven't, you can always catch the game on TV - preferably down the pub with your fellow supporters!
