She Also Accepted the 'Billboard Millennium' Award
While Britney Spears made a couple of cameo performances with both Rihanna (at the start of the show) and Nicki Minaj (at the close of the show), Beyoncé performed all by herself last night at the 2011 Billboard Music Awards. Well, technically that’s not true … she actually had about 100 kickass back-up dancers performing with her as well :) Bey performed her new single Run the World (Girls) after she was paid tribute to by a host of people … including her parents Tina & Matthew Knowles, U2 frontman Bono, First Lady Michelle Obama and more! Beyoncé also collected the Billboard Millennium Award so, yeah, it was a pretty sweet night for Miss B. Check out below photos and video from Beyoncé‘s performance last night. More »
A Little 'S&M', A Little 'World Ends'
After reports that Britney Spears would not be appearing at all at the 2011 Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas, NV last night, we heard a rumor Saturday that our dear Britney would be a last-minute addition to the performance schedule of the show. Yesterday afternoon, we got a sneak peek of her performance when a rehearsal photo of Britney and Rihanna made it’s way to the Internets. Last night, Britney did appear on stage — not once but twice — with Rihanna (to open the show) and with upcoming tourmate Nicki Minaj (to close the show) in a pair of performance cameos for the songs S&M (Remix) and ‘Till the World Ends (… the Femme Fatale Remix). Check out photos and video of the performances below. More »

Last weekend the principal cast of The Facts of Life reunited on stage at the 2011 TV Land Awards to collect this year’s Pop Culture Award.

The Facts of Life ladies gave an interview to Good Morning America today and, well, it’s prolly easier if you just watch the clip instead of my explaining it to you. More »
Awards shows tend to make for strange bedfellows … celebs that you’d never imagine hanging out together get thrown into the same room and are, well, kinda forced to hang out together. At the 83rd annual Academy Awards last weekend, Oscar winners Trent Reznor (Best Original Score) and Christian Bale (Best Supporting Actor) were spotted chatting together in a backstage, VIP area. I’m not sure what the full context of the photo is but the accompanying commentary on the Tumblr from whence this photo comes is all kinds of awesome. More »
"You Better Shape Up, Cuz It's Time to Host"
Remember that weird, soundless, dreamy video that James Franco posted on his Twitter profile that seemed to show him and Anne Hathaway in a parody of Grease? Well, if you watched the Academy Awards telecast on Sunday night you did NOT see that skit in the opening of the show. But, right now we get to see the parody in full … and based on the lyrics alone, I can see why it was cut from the Oscars telecast. More »

'The King's Speech' & 'Inception' Win 4 Oscars, 'The Social Network' Take 3
And so … the 83rd annual Academy Awards have been handed out, bringing to a close another long awards season. Despite efforts to make the Oscars telecast a “young and hip” affair, this year’s show — IMHO — ended up feeling “old and boring” as usual. BUT, there were some very well-deserved awards handed out last night, tho not many surprises. The biggest award went to The King’s Speech, a British film that ended up with 4 Oscars in total. Inception, which really hasn’t won any major awards all awards season long, tied The King’s Speech with 4 Oscars. The Social Network, once considered a front-runner for Best Picture, ended up with only 3 awards — but one of those Oscars went to my boy Trent Reznor and his collaborator Atticus Ross for Best Original Score. For me, this was an Oscars to remember … but only for Reznor‘s win and not much else. More »
