Oscar favorite has staying power

Some surprises in this weekend's Top 10 movies. "Gnomeo & Juliet" moved up from last week's No. 3 spot to No. 1. After a week out of the top 10, "True Grit" returns at No. 10.

What's not a surprise with this week's list is the staying power of the Biebs (he must have those 'tween girls returning for fourth and fifth viewings of "Never Say Never"), and of course "The King's Speech," which might nearly sweep the top awards at tonight's Oscars. Preview the show here, and read Entertainment Editor Mark Meszoros' commentary here.
