The 70th Annual Peabody Award winners were announced today with a few surprise victories thrown into the mix. On the television side,”Men Of A Certain Age,” “The Good Wife,” Justified,” and The Pacific“ took home prizes. I guess the surprise here is that “Degrassi – ‘My Body Is A Cage’” walked away with honors. Which is a shock. If the ‘I’m So Excited’ episode of “Saved by the Bell” got the snub, then this should too.

Warner Bros Engages In ‘The Battle Of Midway’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/warner-bros-engages-in-the-battle-of-midway/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/warner-bros-engages-in-the-battle-of-midway/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 Now imagine this in color. And 3D. Much like Godzilla, "The Pacific" producer Bruce C. McKenna is drawing upon his love of killing Japanese people again for his next project. McKenna has sold a pitch to Warner Bros. to develop The Battle Of Midway into a big-budget 3D war epic. Reported to have a budget somewhere in the $200 million range, expect this recount of the historic air and sea battle to be a big one. There's no word on casting or director as of yet, but we'll let you know when Clint Eastwood casts Channing Tatum as a maverick fighter pilot who is constantly at odds with by-the-book squad leader Jon Hamm.
