American Idol finale Jena Irene Caleb Johnson entertainment news

"American Idol" pundits breathlessly proclaim that the matchup is thisclose between blushing thrush Jena Irene and howling headbanger Caleb Johnson, but is that really true?

Check out the result of the "American Idol" poll we ran yesterday before the dueling songmasters faced off on stage: 64% of respondents say Jena Irene will triumph, leaving Caleb banging his bruised noggin against a wall, saying, "Hey, where are all the supporters people say I have?"

--

Good question, Caleb. We think there's a difference between the raging pundits of the blogosphere (young males who rock out on air guitars) and the sweet 16 girls who do the actual voting. Yes, often those lasses pick guys with real guitars on stage, but those tend to be trim males of chiseled jaw and heartthrob swagger.

But we – and our poll – could be wrong, of course. Now it is time for you to make your prediction and compete against other Gold Derby users in our contest. Prize: $100 Amazon Gift Certificate. Click through the photo box in this article.

Click here to check out our latest racetrack odds: Jena at 1/3, Caleb at 3/1. Now peek through our leaderboards to see how our users have scored week to week.

Whoopi Goldberg EGOT A Day Late and a Dollar Short The View Entertainment News

Whoopi Goldberg once told talk show host Larry King that she was giving up acting. She took the moderator's position on ABC daytimer "The View" soon after in 2007 and didn't think she would look back.

"I just wanted to back off some of the things I felt I was going to have to start doing because I just didn't think they were right for me," she tells Gold Derby in an exclusive webchat (watch video below). "I said I needed to take a break, so that's what I did."

"Da Vinci's Demons" is a tempting choice for Emmy voters deciding best production design for TV drama series. The Starz show is not only rich in the kind of period detail that often gets rewarded (ornate Italian palaces and churches of 15th-century Florence), but it's full of wildly imaginative elements too (flying machines, Inca enchantings).

"Da Vinci's Demons" production designer Ed Thomas calls the combo "Renaissance punk," adding, "We're not making a documentary. It's a historical drama fantasy."

To create those scenes, he builds 22 sets at a six-acre studio in Swansea, Wales, in the U.K. His team includes 350 people who work on fabrication, props, set dressing and more. The operations are so vast that it takes him two hours just to walk around the studio and check in with everybody on shooting days.
