The 1946 drama, starring James Stewart and Donna Reed, picked up 18 per cent of the 3,000 votes cast in the survey by Britain's Radio Times.
The Muppet Christmas Carol came second with 10 per cent, while Love Actually, starring Colin Firth and Hugh Grant, placed in third.
A surprising entry on the list was Die Hard, which came in eighth place with four per cent of the vote.
Radio Times film editor Andrew Collins says, "As it is the season to be jolly, I won't disguise my rosy-cheeked joy that the poll named Die Hard one of the top 10 Christmas movies of all time.
"It's just as capable of producing festive tingles as the more traditional, December-released Muppet Christmas Carol or the cockle-warming Love Actually, which was literally gift wrapped in 2003 with a lovely red ribbon tied around its twinkling poster image."
The Meet The Fockers star established The Stiller Foundation following the earthquake which devastated the poverty-stricken nation in January 2010, and he has been hosting benefits and auctions to boost donations for his school building mission to help rebuild the country.
He returned to Haiti this weekend (10Dec11) and reveals he's signed off on a joint venture with local telecoms bosses to construct the new education facilities.
In a Twitter.com post on Saturday, Stiller writes, "Great day in Haiti. Signed an agreement with Digicel Foundation to build 8 schools."
Stiller isn't the only celebrity in Haiti - actress Patricia Arquette, designer Donna Karan and reality TV stars Kim Kardashian and her mother Kris Jenner have also jetted to the impoverished nation to lend a hand to relief efforts. The famous females are working with We Advance, the charity organisation co-founded by actress Maria Bello.
Kanter passed away at California's Encino Hospital on Sunday (06Nov11) after suffering complications from pneumonia, his daughter Donna tells the Los Angeles Times.
Kanter shared an Emmy in 1955 for Best Written Comedy Material for his work on The George Gobel Show, but he is perhaps best known for creating the 1960s series Julia.
The show made history for featuring an African-American actress, Diahann Carroll, playing a professional employee rather than a domestic worker, and ran for three seasons.
Kanter also worked on Academy Awards broadcasts for more than 30 years, and his screenwriting credits include Bob Hope & Bing Crosby's Road to Bali, and Pocketful of Miracles, which starred Glenn Ford and Bette Davis. He also wrote and directed Loving You, starring Elvis Presley.
Actor Carl Reiner has paid tribute to his pal, saying, "What a dear man. He was considered one of the wits of the industry; there's no question about it. Any time he was called upon, he always could make the audience laugh. He was a funny elder statesman, and there's nothing better than having a witty elder statesman."
The Ghostbusters star will feature in upcoming U.S. TV show Born to Explore to scour for fossils in Alberta and help excavate a new species of dinosaur, the hadrosaur, which was discovered in September (11).
Programme host Richard Wiese says, "The natural beauty of Alberta took our crew's breath away. Filming in the dinosaur bone bed was a rare opportunity and to discover a new dinosaur species was sensational."
Wayne's World actress Donna Dixon and Criminal Minds star Matthew Gray Gubler will also join Aykroyd at the site.
The celebrity dig, which will air on 5 November (11), will also help raise funds for the creation of the Phillip J. Currie Dinosaur Museum.
The young actress will serve as a brand ambassador for the fashion house and its subsidiary jeans line and she'll also front the company's 2012 ad campaigns.
She says, "I've always loved Donna Karan's creations. To be a part of the brand's message is incredibly exciting because it feels like such an organic fit. It's easy to talk about how these clothes work for my lifestyle, whether I'm in New York, L.A. or traveling for work."
Trustees of St. John's Health Center Foundation in California handed the Irish actor the Caritas Award and praised him as an individual who "demonstrates compassion and concern for others through exceptional service to the community".
Foundation Chair Donna Tuttle explains, "The extraordinary passion Pierce Brosnan brings to his family, his profession and his community reflects the true spirit of Caritas.
"It is for this and his great friendship to St. John's that he is being honoured with the award."
Previous recipients of the Caritas Award include Sound of Music legend Dame Julie Andrews and action man-turned-politician Arnold Schwarzenegger.
After garnering widespread praise (and an Oscar nomination for screenwriting) for his 2000 directorial debut You Can Count on Me Kenneth Lonergan was in-demand. In September 2005 the writer/director began production on a follow-up feature: Margaret which touted Anna Paquin Matt Damon Mark Ruffalo Matthew Broderick Allison Janney as well as legendary filmmakers Sydney Pollack and Anthony Minghella (The English Patient) as producers. The movie wrapped production in a few months time. The buzz was already growing.
Now six years later the movie is finally hitting theaters. So…what took so long?
The journey to this point hasn't been an easy one and it shows. If a film's shot footage is a block of granite and the editing process is the careful carving that turns it into a statuesque work of art Margaret feels like it was attacked by a blind man with a jackhammer. The film is a cinematic disaster a mishmash of shallow characters overwrought politics and sporadic tones. The story follows Lisa Coen (Paquin) a New York teenager who finds herself drowning in chaos after distracting a bus driver (Ruffalo) causing him to hit and kill a pedestrian (Janney). Initially Lisa tells the police it was all an accident but as time passes regret takes hold and the girl embarks on a mission to take down the man she now regards as a culprit. That's just the tip of the iceberg–along the way Lisa deals with everyday teen stuff: falling for her geometry teacher (Damon) combating her anxiety-ridden actress mother losing her virginity dabbling in drugs debating 9/11 and the Iraq War cultivating a relationship with her father in LA and more. There are about eight seasons of television stuffed into Margaret but even a two and a half hour run time can't make it all click.

The actor plays a sex addict in the racy film, which sees his character involved in numerous saucy encounters all over New York City.
One sex scene was shot with two burlesque stars, Chang and DeeDee Luxe, and director Steve McQueen made sure all the actors were put at ease during filming.
Chang tells the New York Post's gossip column Page Six, "Steve and Michael both made the situation very comfortable and not awkward. Having two bottles of hard liquor helped too... It was full-on nudity, all three of us. And we asked Steve to play mood music so it wasn't just three people in a room moaning and heavily making out. So Steve put on (Donna Summer song) Love to Love You Baby, the extended remix."
S4E3: Last week on Sons of Anarchy, the Sons took revenge against the Russians and discussed drug-running for the Gallindo Cartel. Jax agreed to go along with Clay’s plan, so long as he’s allowed out of the club and the gavel goes to Opie when Jax and Clay exit. The engines are revved; it’s time for the Sons!
“That woman there, she makes Gemma look like Donna Reed”–Tig
The episode begins with Clay and Jax talking about the impending vote for the club to decide if they’re going to run drugs for the Gallindo Cartel or not. Jax thinks Tig, Happy, and Chibbs are in. Clay will try to and convince Bobby while Jax will continue to work on Opie. Tara comes into the room and Clay welcomes her to the family, now that she and Jax are engaged. Stepfather and stepson head to the warehouse that the club is building to house their wares, which is being built by Bobby, Tig, Juice, Opie, and Chibbs. Clay wants Bobby to run with him on an errand, and the President and club’s account head off.
Kozik, who is still in need of a first name (unless Kozik is some sort of nickname), is goaded into playing street basketball with some local thugs, but it’s all a ruse when they steal his car and the club’s gun suuply. Of course, this doesn’t sit well with Jax at all, and he, Kozik, Chibbs, Tig, and Happy set off to find the thieves, which they do fairly quickly. The pursuit becomes a motorcycle-versus-car chase through Charming streets and the Sons are able to catch the boys with minimal effort. The hoodrats confess that they sold the guns to Vivica, a local trafficker of all kinds of stolen goods, who already told the club that she didn’t have the guns. Unfortunately for Vivica, her sons Luther and Vandross started up business on the side and they did buy the guns. Momma immediately demands that they give the guns back to the club.
“Let him know that you’re aware of his family tree and you’ll be in touch.”–Linc
Lincoln Potter briefs Sheriff Roosevelt on Romero “Romeo” Parada and that he’s now in business with the Sons. Roosevelt suggests that he picks up Juice on a parole violation, since he’s part owner of a Weed Shop. The cops bring Juice in a phony trumped up charge. Roosevelt explains that he can arrange for Juice to see his father, Michael Howard Cole, who he’s never met before. Interestingly enough, daddy’s black, which in Roosevelt’s opinion would be bad for Juice if the MC found out. “Probably make you scrape the tats and take off the patch.”
“It ain’t about getting rich, it’s about getting old”–Clay
Clay and Bobby have a heart-to-heart about why Clay needs his vote. Bobby has always been able to see through the B.S. and this situation is no different; he tells Clay flat-out that he knows running drugs is about Clay leaving and stuffing his pockets on his way out. What he doesn’t know is what Jax got out of the deal, which Clay then explains to him. Clay states that he’ll give Bobby the gavel on his way out of the club. These are dangerous duplicitous times for the club.
When they meet with Charlie, Clay assures him that they’re not making any more money with the cartel than they were with the Russians. Charlie says okay and heads off to start prepping the club’s order.
Gemma, at her wits end trying to find Maureen Ashby’s letters, finally just confronts her future daughter–in–law about them. Gemma confides in Tara about Maureen and her former husband, John, falling in love and how it “ripped me apart, spent months at a time in Belfast with her, and left me alone here with his sons.” Gemma says that wherever the letters lead (see: showing them to Jax) can only be bad for the family.
“You don’t tell me what we do.”–Clay
Piney, one of the club’s founders and dissenters of the cartel deal, lets Gemma know what her man is up to and pleads with her to talk some sense into him. Unfortunately for her, she is just an Old Lady and does not have as much say as she thinks. Clay emphatically tells her that she doesn’t get to tell him what they do. The club convenes to vote and the motion passes with Kozik’s vote, who Jax previously thought wouldn’t go along with it, due to former addictions. The naysayers were Happy, Bobby, Chibs, Juice, and Piney. As the club exits the office, Clay is left alone with Piney and flatly states, “if you ever try to go behind me through my wife again, I’ll kill you.”
What an hour. There wasn’t a lot of physical action, but instead we saw a whole lot of tension mounting within the club. They’ve voted on running drugs, but almost half of the club members are against the idea, and while they’ll help their brothers out, they’re not going to do it with smiles on their faces. How soon before everyone knows that Jax wants out of the club and wants Opie at the head of the table? How long will it before the club finds out Clay wants out and wants Bobby at the head of the table? Next week is the club’s first drug run, so it’s time to saddle up and ride!
The actor has been married three times in the past, to Donna Peele in the 1990s, to Denise Richards, the mother of his two daughters, and to Brooke Mueller, who gave birth to twin boys with the star before their relationship crumbled and they divorced earlier this year (11).
Sheen and Mueller were seen on holiday together in Mexico recently, sparking rumours of a reconciliation, and although the actor admits he is living with his ex-wife "on and off", he is adamant their marriage is definitely over.
He tells U.S. TV host Wendy Wiliams, "We're friends and we're just trying to stay that way and be good parents and just set a good example. We're not back together or anything... (We are living together) off and on, we're not sure what the plan is going to be but we're working all that stuff out."
The Wall Street star also reveals he will never wed again because he has lost his faith in marriage.
He adds, "A couple of things I don't do well - marriage and drinking. So I've quit both... Why would I (get married again). That's not to say I couldn't have a substantial relationship one day, but to ordain it with a piece of paper just feels like it makes things worse, just for me personally. Because those relationships, I want to say they were pretty good before the marriage and then something happens..."
