Pulling NO Punches
British comedian Ricky Gervais served as host of the 2011 Golden Globe Awards here in Hollywood, CA last night and during his opening monologue to kick off the show he expertly, brilliantly and unapologetically skewered as many celebs in the audience as possible with joke after joke after joke. He managed to get a few uncomfortable laughs from the audience but it was his Scientology joke that garnered the most groans. For me, Gervais made the Golden Globe Awards worth watching … and he had me in stitches the entire night. His opening monologue is an absolute must see. More »

In the wake of the stunning success of Britney Spears‘s just-released new single Hold It Against Me this week, a new rumor started to go around yesterday that claims that our dear Britney will be performing during the 2011 Grammy Awards next month. According to People magazine, Britney will NOT be performing at the show and her own people have issued a statement saying that any news not officially released by them is merely “rumor”.

No Senses of Humor
Rumor has it that Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes, collectively referred to as TomKat, are planning NOT to attend the 2011 Academy Awards this year because the show is being co-hosted by Anne Hathaway. As you may recall, back in November, Anne hosted Saturday Night Live and she hilariously lampooned Katie Holmes in one of the skits. According to rumors going around this week, TomKat are pissed at Anne and, therefore, are boycotting Oscars this year. More »
