Friends win Willis an Emmy
Hollywood star Bruce Willis has been awarded an Emmy for his three charity guest appearances in hit TV comedy series Friends.

The 45-year-old actor won the Emmy for Guest Actor in a Comedy Series to add to the Emmy for Best Actor which he won for TV series Moonlighting in 1987.

The weekend ceremony mainly featured awards for technical achievements. The main Emmys event will take place on September 10.


Bring It On cheers box office

Cheerleader comedy Bring It On has gone straight to the top of the US box office chart.

The film took an estimated 11m in its opening weekend - over 4m more than the Wesley Snipes action thriller The Art Of War, which was in second place.

Bring It On stars Kirsten Dunst as a high school student who wins a place on her school's cheerleading squad. But she finds that she faces tough competition from her squad mates.


Arrests follow festival walk

Three men were arrested after two police officers were allegedly assaulted during a walking tour led by comic and playwright Arthur Smith.

Two officers were called to Edinburgh's Royal Mile in the early hours of Sunday after residents complained of people using a megaphone.

They found a crowd of 200 being led by Smith, who stages waking tours each year at the Fringe Festival. The three men accused of assault were not named.


Wedding bells for Stewart

Patrick Stewart, aka Captain Jean-Luc Picard in the hit TV show Star Trek - The Next Generation, has married 39-year-old Wendy Neuss.

Stewart, who recently played Professor Charles Xavier in X-Men, and Neuss, a former Star Trek production assistant, have been together for four years.

Brent Spiner, who plays Data in Next Generation, was best man at the wedding, which took place at a lakeside mansion in Los Angeles.
