RANDALL KING: MOVIES

It's Travolta-fying!

Given Ellen DeGeneres's lacklustre hosting of last weekend's Oscars, the funniest, most enduring moment of the ceremonies was also the most mortifying: John Travolta's mispronunciation of singer Idina Menzel's name as "Adele Dazeem." Go to Slate.com to see how your own name would translate in their Adele Dazeem name generator. This message has been brought to you by Rachael Kzing.

Billions and billions of reasons to sample new space-exploration series

More than 30 years after the launch of Carl Sagan's groundbreaking science series Cosmos: A Personal Voyage, Fox and National Geographic Channel team up to produce Cosmos: A Spacetime Adventure, a new 13-part exploration produced by science buff Seth MacFarlane (Family Guy, Ted) and narrated by noted astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, right (who will be speaking at U of M's Investors Group Athletic Centre on March 13 at 4 p.m.). The series, which premières Sunday, March 9, at 8 p.m. on Fox and Global, will also air on National Geographic and NatGeo WILD.

BEN MACPHEE-SIGURDSON: WINE

Thin White Duke serves up big, rich red

No, David Bowie didn't roll up his pants and stomp the grapes at Spain's Bodegas Vicente Ganda, but the 67-year-old did do a little doodling for the winery -- for a good cause. Bowie is one of four celebs who donated artwork for the labels of Ganda's wines, available for $15.99 each (plus taxes) on Manitoba shelves. In addition to the David Bowie Shiraz, Ganda has also created the Penélope Cruz Verdejo Sauvignon Blanc (a white blend), the Pierce Brosnan Tempranillo (a red), and the Charlize Theron Cava (a sparkling wine). Proceeds go to 21st Century Leaders, which "uses its net proceeds to support charitable projects in the developing world," via a group called Whatever It Takes.
