'The King's Speech' & 'True Grit' Lead the Way!
Earlier this morning the nominations for the 83rd annual Academy Awards — which honors achievement in film making, considered THE most prestigious award in Hollywood — were announced LIVE from Hollywood, CA and now we know which films will be vying for film-making’s highest honor. The King’s Speech did very well, pulling in 12 nominations while True Grit pulled in an impressive 10 noms. Toy Story 3, one of the most beloved films of the year, managed to secure a nomination for Best Animated Film as well as a nom for Best Picture … becoming the second film after Up to ever get nominations in both categories. While many of the usual suspects this awards season got noms, there were a few snubs … including NO nominations for Christopher Nolan for his work directing Inception. More »

Like, Really Terrible
First, I must preface this entire post by saying that I LOVE Natalie Portman, she is my pick as the Best Actress at all the awards shows this season and I couldn’t be happier for all the success — both personal and professional — that she is enjoying these days. That being said, dear sweet Natalie (bless her soul) has one of THE most awkward and cringe-worthy laughs that I have had the misfortune to bear witness to on national television. During her acceptance speech last night at the 2011 Golden Globe Awards, Natalie tried to make a joke about how her fiancée wants to have sex with her (which is obvious due to the fact that she is pregs with his baby) and laughed so awkwardly, so terrifyingly at her own joke that it still haunts me today.

"References to individuals [are] certainly not something the [we] condone"
Earlier today I posted amazingly funny video of Ricky Gervais‘s brilliant opening monologue as host of the 2011 Golden Globe Awards last night and mentioned that the comic is taking a bit of heat from the celebs he skewered on live television today. The Hollywood Reporter nabbed an interview with Philip Berk, the president of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (the ones who award the Golden Globes) and he has gone on the record to say that Gervais “definitely crossed the line” with the jokes he delivered last night. Which means, uh oh, Ricky Gervais is in trouble, y’all. More »

'The Social Network', 'Glee' Win Big!
Celebs from film and television made their way out to The Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, CA last night to attend the 2011 Golden Globe Awards. When host Ricky Gervais wasn’t brilliantly and hilariously skewering the folks in the audience, Golden Globe awards were being handed out to some lucky winners. Many of the awards went to the film The Social Network and the TV series Glee … but there were a few other winners as well. More »

Hide Your Eyes, Taylor Swift
Yesterday we saw photos of Jake Gyllenhaal out and about in West Hollywood, CA this weekend enjoying a leisurely breakfast with an older woman on Saturday morning. But by Sunday afternoon, Jake had traded that older woman for a much younger woman picked to be his date to the Golden Globe Awards last night. Jake didn’t bring just any ol’ chick to the fête with him, no siree, he asked his ex-girlfriend (and Rilo Kiley frontwoman) Jenny Lewis to accompany him. Might the ex-lovers be sparking up a new relationship together? More »
