Bret Michaels Sues The Tony Awards For His Head Injury

Blame Game

In June of 2009, Bret Michaels and Poison performed at the 63rd Annual Tony Awards and during that performance, he inadvertently walked into a moving part of the set and banged up his face pretty bad. At the time, Michaels complained publicly that the folks at the Tony Awards didn’t show him much sympathy for his injury going so far as to issue a public statement on the incident. Over a year later, in August of 2010, Michaels suffered a brain hemorrhage that almost killed him … and now he is suing the Tony Awards, blaming his on stage accident on his health problems. More »

When Trent Reznor Met Christian Bale

Oscar Bros

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 »

Watch: James Franco & Anne Hathaway In An Unused Oscar Parody Of ‘Grease’

"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 2011 Academy Awards Have Been Handed Out

'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 »
