Olmos: "It's the final season [of Battlestar Galactica]"

Sci Fi Channel's Battlestar Galactica may have been a big winner at the 33rd Saturn Awards last night, but it wasn't all good news for fans. Speaking with the press, Battlestar actor Edward James Olmos said that the fourth season of the show would be its last.

Olmos told movie site IESB.net "[Season four] will probably be the most extraordinary season of Battlestar; it's the final season so it's definitely going to be the most vicious."

IESB later asked costar Katee Sackhoff about the final season, to which she replied, "Yeah, this may be our last year. If Eddie is saying it, I guess I can repeat it."

Season four of Battlestar Galactica is due to begin airing in 2008.

Aquafresh insures Ugly Betty smile for $10M

Ugly Betty's grill has always been full of metal, but now it's got some serious bling behind it. Toothpaste-maker Aquafresh has insured the smile of America Ferrera, the actress who plays Betty Suarez in Ugly Betty, for $10 million dollars through Lloyd's of London.

The move was part of a charity event for Smiles for Success, an initiative that aims to provide dental care for women who can't afford it. The company is also donating $1 for every box of its Aquafresh White Trays sold between now and the end of August.

Several celebrities have body parts insured, including Jamie Lee Curtis (legs), rocker Keith Richards (hands), and even old-timers like Betty Grable.

Scotty's remains go to space, get lost

Attention Star Trek memorabilia collectors: Get your pale butts out to the deserts of New Mexico. It appears that the remains of James Doohan, the actor who played Scotty on Star Trek, may be lost some where in the Southwest.

Doohan's ashes were shot into space in late April by Space Services Inc. along with the remains of other departed, including astronaut Gordon Cooper. The rocket carrying the ashes was supposed to orbit the Earth then return. However, the spacecraft has gone missing and is somewhere in the rugged terrain of New Mexico.

"They know the general location, and we have the utmost confidence that they will recover it," a Space Services rep told Reuters.

Tracy Morgan has happy hands, cops on his tail

30 Rock star and SNL alum is currently being sought by the police, reports the Associated Press. The actor allegedly got too friendly with Miami radio DJ Yuleika DeCastro, who goes by the name Sandy Domingo.

DeCastro claims that Morgan "illegally touched her" in the studio this morning. Morgan reportedly reeked of alcohol, kissed the back of her head, and made inappropriate comments...all this at 8:00 in the morning.

Police are currently searching for Morgan for questioning.

Theres an article on scifi channels website that says this isnt the case, from the producer or director i think, and that apparently Olmos has a habit of doing this, they have said that if the show is ending the news would come from them not a cast memeber, and i think they add so dont panic. So panic over! hehe

I think Olmos is jumping the gun, unless he has some inside information we don't know about. If the rating start to improve for next season I doubt sci-fi channel will cancel it. First thing they should do is take it out of that awful Sunday night 10 p.m. time slot and put it on a better night where more people will watch.

The Sci-Fi channel has lost their minds the last couple of years. First, they're removing SG-1 and now Battlestar Galactica. Who ever is now in control does not know what great sci-fi shows are. Who ever is at the top needs to pay attention to what the viewers want and not what they think sci-fi should be.

I applaude the decision to terminate Battlestar Galactica. I thought it made less sense than the original.

Yeah, David Eick (co-executive producer) said that no decision has been made about whether to end BSG after Season 4. This was reported on Sci Fi Wire, the official news service of the Sci Fi Channel. So there's hope after all. I think the show can last 5 seasons without a drop-off in quality.

Who cares about the Satrun Awards, all I care is that BSG keeps flying, for a time longer than only 4 seasons

BSG deserves all it's accolades. The series is brilliant. It's one of those programs that will live on long after it's done.

It's amazing how many of us share the same rare sentiment: we know BSG is just about the best thing on TV, period. At the same time, we've all been pummelled with so many shows going past their prime. Well, it'll be the blaze of glory for BSG - without cast changes, without long overdrawn plots; just one more kick-ass season - and the rest is damn good history!

It's one of my favorite shows, period, but I think it's good if they end BSG on a high note instead of dragging it out needlessly. Season 3 had some filler which bugged me, but it looks like season 4 will be all plot and resolution which is pretty cool.

Galactica might not be done, according to David Eick:

I'm happy about Battlestar, Go out while it's still good! Don't jump the shark. As for Star Trek, I just prey whoever finds it does the right thing and returns it, and doesn't go all sicko and try to keep it.
