Brendan Fraser couldn't hide his emotion when he accepted the award for Best Actor on stage at the Critics Choice Awards. The actor, who has been enjoying a career renaissance in recent months, picked up the award for his portrayal in new movie The Whale, which has had rave reviews from Critics. The Mummy actor beat out many big names in the same category including Austin Butler for Elvis and Tom Cruise for Top Gun: Maverick.

It looks like Lana Del Rey is going to keep her fans waiting a little longer for her upcoming record. The singer, who announced her ninth studio album at the end of 2022, has pushed back the release date for Did You Know That There's a Tunnel Under Ocean Blvd by two weeks. Lana took to Instagram to share the news with her fans, stating that it would now arrive on 24 March, a fortnight later than originally planned. Stars set to appear on the new record include Father John Misty, Jack Antonoff and Jon Batiste.
