Social media has become an added medium of coverage to all news genres, including sports, politics and entertainment. We’re bringing you a social media round-up of interesting and entertaining items making film headlines in the social sphere.

The Black List revealed its annual ranking on Twitter this past week, emphasizing the best unproduced screenplays. The list not  only "celebrates" the top 10 scripts that should be given the green light, but also shows the potential of the upcoming year in film.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, the list is based on the opinions of over 290 Hollywood executives. Past Black List scripts include Oscar winners Slumdog Millionaire, The King’s Speech and The Social Network.
Black List organizers tweeted out the top 10 scripts one-by-one, and this year’s batch boasts topics like the NFL draft (Draft Day), Dr. Seuss (Seuss) and Hillary Rodham Clinton (Rodham). "I think this is the year of the biopic," said creator Franklin Leonard to THR, referencing Ted Geisel (Dr. Seuss) and Clinton. Click here to see a full description synopsis of each film.



With the holidays underway, Alison Pill and Jay Baruchel decided to bring their own "interpretation" of the festivities with “Santa Baby.” Tony-nominated Pill sings a cover of the song, while Baruchel eats sunflower seeds, glued to a hockey game. We'd like to say that Pill takes the majority of the spotlight, but gosh darnit, that Baruchel sure puts a spot-on performance as a hockey fan.


Another holiday video's circulating the web, this time with a bit less cheer. Samuel L. Jackson and Anne Hathaway took part in a "Sad Off" on Funny or Die, where the two argue over who has the most depressing film coming out on Christmas Day; Django Unchained or Les Miserables. Warning: Anticipate some offensive language, ugly Christmas sweaters and...humor.
