FILE - In this Jan. 14, 2007 file photo, actress Kim Novak poses for photographers upon arriving at a special screening of Alfred Hitchcock's 1958 film "Vertigo," in which she starred, at the Egyptian Theater in the Hollywood section of Los Angeles. Novak says she feels violated because music from the Alfred Hitchcock film is used in "The Artist." The 78-year-old actress said in a statement released Monday, Jan. 9, 2012 that the filmmakers of the French black-and-white homage to silent film had no reason "to depend on Bernard Herrmann's score from 'Vertigo' to provide more drama."

The Cricket's Daily 3: You don't want to make Kim Novak angry

Here's what's happening in pop culture:

• Kim Novak compares the use of Bernard Herrmann's score from "Vertigo" in Michel Hazanavicius' silent comedy "The Artist" to rape. Hazanavicius responds that using the score came from his "admiration and respect for movies throughout history." [The Hollywood Reporter]

• Meanwhile, Hazanavicius has received a nomination from the Directors Guild of America. Other DGA nominees: Woody Allen ("Midnight in Paris"), David Fincher ("The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo"), Alexander Payne ("The Descendants") and Martin Scorsese ("Hugo"). Notably absent from the list: Steven Spielberg ("War Horse"). [Movie City News]

• Does "The Devil Inside" feature the worst ending in movie history? Mllions of moviegoers, who gave it an "F" on CinemaScore, can't be wrong. [Slate]
