A surprised Luke Bryan was named entertainer of the year at the Academy of Country Music Awards.

In a major upset, he beat two-time winner Taylor Swift - as well as Blake Shelton, Jason Aldean and Miranda Lambert - for the academy's top honor.

Lambert was the night's big winner, getting her fourth straight female vocalist award as well as three trophies for her hit song "Over You."

Ex-porn star Jenna Jameson has been arrested after a report she attacked someone at an Orange County home.

Police say the alleged victim put Jameson under citizen's arrest until they arrived to the scene.

Jameson was given a court date to face a misdemeanor battery charge and then released.

"Evil Dead" has risen again at the U. S. box office.

The horror remake debuted at number one with twenty six million dollars, according to studio estimates.

"The Croods" and "G. I. Joe: Retaliation" are in a fight for second spot, both with an estimated twenty one point one million dollars.

This is Sid Dixon with AP ShowBiz Minute.
