Lindsay Lohan was very engaged in her BlackBerry on Thursday, as she chatted away while walking down the street and got busy texting in the car. As one of your favorite celebrity bloggers of 2008, looks like she should check out mobile blogging — may we suggest OnSugar? With what's sure to be a fun-filled few weeks ahead, hopefully we'll hear more from Lindsay as she parties her way into 2009.

Celeb Style: Eva Longoria Eva Longoria was all ruffles and smiles at the opening of the Conga Room in Los Angeles. Her black top was gorgeous, but try to avert your attention from those oversized hoop earrings, which were in opposition with her more masculine watch. The skinny jeans up the feminine factor, though. Shop it all now.
Will Smith was in Charlotte, NC, yesterday for the latest screening of Seven Pounds. His film isn't out until next Friday, but there will still be some Smith family action at the box office this weekend with the release of his son Jaden's The Day the Earth Stood Still. Even without the company of his costar Rosario Dawson, there was plenty of Will's goodwill to go around. Like his other recent premieres, Will organized a food drive to go along with his appearance keeping up his charitable holiday spirit.

Jon Hamm is very sexy suited up as Don Draper in Mad Men, but dressed down, he's still handsome as seen here making his way through LAX on Wednesday with Jennifer Westfeldt. The couple brought their good looks to a red carpet earlier this week for the premiere of The Day the Earth Stood Still, and they can pencil in another event now that Jon's scored a Golden Globe nomination. Jon didn't get a chance to make his acceptance speech at last year's awards thanks to the writers' strike, but maybe this year we'll get to see him take the stage for his second win in a row. While the show is coming back next yer, the show's creator has yet to sign on another season, but a few awards could be just what he needs to get back to work on one of our favorite shows.
We've been counting down the most shocking headlines of 2008, and we'll be revealing more throughout the month of December. We hope you enjoy this look back at some of the posts and stories that created the most buzz throughout the year.
Shia LaBeouf hit the ground running in 2008, quickly scoring his second Vanity Fair cover and shooting Eagle Eye. He hit a snag when a warrant for his arrest went out after he was a no-show in court for a smoking violation, but all was forgiven and forgotten in the huge success of Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. Unfortunately, things got crazier for Shia as he headed into the Summer months. In late July, he was involved in a scary car accident and arrested under suspicion of DUI.
The charges were eventually dropped, but Shia was left with a very serious hand injury and had to step off the set of Transformers 2 for a few weeks. More recently the hand injury also made him drop out of another movie, though he's still picking up high-profile projects. On the more personal side of things, the media implicated him as part of Adrian Grenier's breakup with Isabel Lucas, since Isabel was the only other passenger in Shia's truck at the time of the crash. Eventually Shia got back to work and helped Eagle Eye score big at the box office, though he found himself injured yet again after a mishap on set left him with stitches on his eye. Luckily, Shia made it all the way through 2008 without another mugshot and in one piece, but hopefully he's learned a few lessons to take with him into 2009.
Christina Aguilera held on tight to Max shopping around LA with Jordan yesterday. Max's first Hanukkah is around the corner and birthday just a few weeks after that, so it sounds like there's a lot of gifts coming his way. In his bright green sweater, Max already has a flare for fashion and color just like his mama though it's pretty adorable how much he's the spitting image of Jordan.
