I, For One, Am Hoping For A 'We Saw Your Boobs' Sequel
This year the Academy Awards show was hosted by Seth MacFarlane, and it ended being kind of a big deal. I was one of a few feminists (it seemed) who was totally fine with the work he did, and totally entertained by much of his schtick, including– but not limited to– the now infamous We Saw Your Boobs song. Of all the acts of misogyny in the world and in the media, I thought Seth‘s hosting gig would have been the least of our concerns (and again, I didn’t find it misogynistic at all, though many people did). And bottom line for me, he was funny. He was entertaining! And lots of people got through the long-ass ceremony that is the Oscars because of him. Thus, I happily rejoice over the news that he’s being asked to come back and host again next year. Click inside for more!
Will Ferrell Wins Best Dressed.
Earlier today we checked out the winners and nominees from last night’s MTV Movie Awards. As I said, I wasn’t that impressed with the actual show, but the fashion is always fun so I was psyched to see what everyone rocked on the red carpet. Kerry Washington had one of my favorite looks of the night (I know– surprise, surprise), and Selena Gomez, Karlie Kloss and Emma Watson also looked pretty fab. Peep the gallery for more! Oh, Will Ferrell also looked awesome… lol.

'The Avengers' And 'Silver Linings Playbook' Win Big
Last night the 2013 MTV Movie Awards aired and the show was… fun. Not crazy-fun, not mind-blowingly fun, just fun. Rebel Wilson hosted and she was… fun… but got a little predictable at a certain point (PITNBr Sam, you called it). And while I did enjoy the show, I wasn’t especially excited to be there… watching from my couch, lol. Still, I’m glad I tuned in. Emma Watson, Will Ferrell, and Jamie Foxx were all honored with special awards for their contribution to the world of cinema, and it was really cool to see their bodies of work receive some recognition. As far as winners were concerned, it was all about The Avengers and Silver Linings Playbook. Click inside to see the full list of winners and nominees!
"I am here to give an award to someone that I admire"
Earlier this month we learned that Madonna would be appearing at the 2013 GLAAD Media Awards in NYC to present Anderson Cooper with an achievement award. Today, those of us who were not able to attend the GLAAD Media Awards are able to watch Maddy deliver her speech in full. Over the course of her 12-minute speech, Madonna railed against the homophobic practices of the Boy Scouts of America (while wearing a Cub Scouts uniform), spoke out against bullying, spoke out in defense of Pussy Riot and, at the very end, said some nice things about Anderson Cooper. Click above to watch video of Madonna‘s entire speech and/or click below to read a recap of what was said. More »
Alongside her BFF Anderson Cooper
Journalist Anderson Cooper will be honored with the Vito Russo Award at the 24th annual GLAAD Media Awards later this month and he will appear at the award ceremony alongside none other than Madonna herself. Maddy will be on hand to honor Coop with his award and will, by her very presence at the event, elevate the GLAAD Media Awards to the level of attention it deserves. Click below to read the full text of the press release announcement and mark your calendars for March 16! Madonna + the gays = Woot! More »
Well this is interesting. Recently, an anonymous voter for the Academy Awards gave a no-holds-barred interview to The Hollywood Reporter, explaining how and why he voted for this year’s nominees. Some of his commentary is clearly meant to be a little ridiculous, but there’s one comment that some folks are not taking lightly. Click inside to read his comments about the youngest Oscar nominee ever, Quvenzhané Wallis.
'What Happened?! I Tried To Walk Upstairs In THIS Dress!'
We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: Jennifer Lawrence saves all. I nearly died for and with her last night when she fell on the steps on her way to accepting the Academy Award for Best Actress. I’m sorry, but the whole thing was kind of awesome, lol. And in typical J-Law fashion, she made it even awesomer. “You guys are just standing up ’cause you feel bad that I fell and that’s really embarrassing but thank you,” she said when she finally got to the podium, Oscar in hand. But Miss Dior also addressed the issue in the press room after she won. You can tell the reporters were sooo trying to make this a bigger issue than it really was, and I loved hearing Jennifer‘s response. Peep the video for more!
Jessica, Le Sigh.
I never thought I’d be one of those people watching red carpet arrivals 3 hours before an awards show, but last night, there I was. Staring intently at the TV (mainly waiting for Kerry Washington to arrive), watching the red carpet arrivals for the 85th annual Academy Awards. And it was a blast! One of my fave moments (other than when Kerry arrived) was this tiny interaction between Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Dustin Hoffman. JGL actually hit the red carpet with his Lincoln co-star Sally Field and they ran into Hoffman… and JGL kinda lost it. It was so cute! I mean, he totally kept it together, but when Ryan Seacrest asked him if he knew of Dustin Hoffman, JGL said something like I don’t think any one actor has influenced me more. I’ve seen every one of his movies. And then he went on to say that he’d never met him before, and you could just see the little stan in him when they shook hands. It was awesome! I loved little moments like that, and I loved the big moments… like Jennifer Lawrence‘s Dior Haute Couture gown. Let’s discuss further, inside!
Big Wins For 'Argo,' 'Life Of Pi,' And 'Lincoln'
It’s 6:45 am and I’m still watching the Oscars. Why? Because I’m old, and by the time I started watching my recording of the Academy Awards at 9 pm I was already exhausted. So yeah, I made it about 3/4 of the way through, and I’m watching the last bit now– and I’m loving it, btw! Seth MacFarlane can pretty much do no wrong in my book (the boob song? C’mon that was classic), and I think the show is really fun. As far as the winners… well… I’m reminded of something my cousin told me many years ago. His theory about the Oscars was a theory of ‘make-ups.’ Actors who didn’t get the Oscar, for whatever reason, for a role that they should have gotten it for, would eventually get a make-up Oscar of sorts. For example, Halle Berry‘s Oscar was really for Dorothy Dandridge, but that was an HBO movie, so they went ahead and gave it to her for Monster’s Ball. I don’t know that this theory applies across the board, but as soon as I saw the 2013 Best Picture winner, I thought Oh that’s nice. They’re making up for his Best Director snub. But hey!It’s the Oscars, and they’re fun, and even if these aren’t my picks (I already told y’all Rust & Bone would win every award in my Oscar ceremony), congratulations are in order to the big winners!

7 of 11 Wins
Last month we learned that the final Twilight film, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2, managed to secure 11 nominations for the 2013 Golden Raspberry Awards … a nomination for every single available category. As you may know, the Razzies honor the worst of the worst in film and are handed out the night before the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences honors the best of the best in film on Oscar night. Last night, the Razzies were handed out here in LA (at the Holiday Inn Express on Hollywood Blvd.) and unsurprisingly, Breaking Dawn – Part 2 walked away with multiple awards … from Worst Actress (Kristen Stewart) to Worst Director (Bill Condon) to the big one, Worst Film. Breaking Dawn – Part 2 won 7 of their 11 nominations, proving once and for all that it was truly the worst film of the year … so, congrats? More »
