The busy award season weekend kicked off with the annual AFI Awards in LA this afternoon. The event honors its top 10 movies and TV shows of 2010, which include The Town, Inception, Black Swan, 30 Rock, Glee, and others. Ben Affleck joined Jeremy Renner to support their project after bouncing around the country from the Palm Springs International Film Festival to the National Board of Review Gala in NYC to celebrate the film this week. Natalie Portman covered her baby bump in a bright blue dress and walked the carpet ahead of director Darren Aronofsky, while her costar Mila Kunis went with white. Jon Hamm made an appearance for Mad Men and got playful with his young castmate Kiernan Shipka. Amy Adams, who represented The Fighter, took a minute to pose with Jeff Bridges and Josh Brolin, and The Kids Are All Right star Mark Ruffalo made a solo entrance. The honors continue at tonight's Critics' Choice Awards, where we'll be broadcasting live from the red carpet — tune in here starting at 4:30 p.m. PST!
Ben Affleck says he had to skip happy hour with Blake Lively and the cast of The Town while working on the film in Boston while out accepting an award for it Tuesday with wife Jennifer Garner.
Ben Affleck and Jon Hamm snuggled up at a lunch celebrating The Town in NYC this afternoon. Blake Lively dressed up despite the snow to join her costars, just like she did for last night's National Board of Review Gala after returning from LA. Jennifer Garner also made the trip east to support her husband at the award show, though it looks like she skipped today's event. Jon will wrap up the celebrations and head back to the West Coast in time to present at Friday's Critics' Choice Awards and to attend Sunday's Golden Globes, where he's a nominee — make sure to fill out BuzzSugar's ballot for a chance to win cash!

But forget the statues for now; I want to know what you guys think. What's the best dramatic movie of the year?

Isn't it amazing how an onscreen couple can set our hearts aflutter? We escape through them, perhaps swoon a little as they experience their first kiss, and maybe even shed a few tears when they break up. In 2010, all eyes were on these couples as they showcased their chemistry on the silver screen. Which gets your vote as the best romance of the year?

No surprises here: moviegoers headed to theaters this weekend to see firsthand whether or not The Social Network is all its cracked up to be. The film took the top spot at the box office, pulling in $23 million in its opening weekend. Behind it was Legend of the Guardians, which actually climbed one spot since last week with $10.8 million, knocking previous champ Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps down to third with $10.1 million.
Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps lived up to its title at the box office this weekend, taking first place with $19 million. Another newcomer took second place, as animated flick Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole finished with $16.3 million. It narrowly edged out last week's champ, The Town, which took in $16 million in its sophomore weekend.
Emma Stone's Easy A fell to fourth with $10.7 million, while Kristen Bell's You Again debuted in fifth with $8.3 million. Now, the real question is how things will shake up next week with the release of the much buzzed about The Social Network.
