Entertainment ACM Awards 2021: All the couples, duos and groups who attended
Trade-deadline primer: St. Louis Blues
Veteran defensemen are always in demand at this time of year, and while he’s not a rental, Robert Bortuzzo could generate some interest. He’s a third-pairing or seventh option at this stage of his career but he can still play with physicality and kill penalties, elements that are often coveted at this time of year. He has another year left at $1.375 million, a rate that isn’t all that high for someone in that role, but the Blues would ideally likely to fill that spot with someone making a bit less to try to give themselves some more cap flexibility for next year.Others to Watch For: Ivan Barbashev ($1.

The first "Downton Abbey" film followed a Royal Visit to the Crawley family and Downton staff from the King and Queen of England and ended with a ball fitting for the Royal Family.
"After a very challenging year with so many of us separated from family and friends, it is a huge comfort to think that better times are ahead and that next Christmas we will be re-united with the much beloved characters of Downton Abbey," Neame, film's producer and executive chairman of Carnival Films, said.
Focus Features chairman Peter Kujawski added: "There's no place like home for the holidays, and we can't imagine a better gift than getting to reunite with Julian, Gareth, and the entire Downton family in 2021 to bring the Crawley's back home for their fans."
