• Documentary filmmaker Les Blank has died at the age of 77. Blank was known for idiosyncratic films like "Garlic Is As Good as 10 Mothers" and "Gap-Toothed Women," and for two movies involving Werner Herzog: "Burden of Dreams" (which chronicled Herzog's quixotic efforts to make the movie "Fitzcarraldo") and the short "Werner Herzog Eats His Shoe" (in which Herzog fulfills a bet made with Errol Morris.) [San Francisco Chronicle]

• At the Academy of Country Music awards last night, Luke Bryan was named Entertainer of the Year -- but Miranda Lambert won Female Artist of the Year, and her hit "Over You" took Record of the Year and Song of the Year. [Entertainment Weekly]
