The Muppets take Tinsel Town
The stars of Muppets Most Wanted made their way to the El Capitan Theater for the Hollywood premiere of their new film. Real life actors Tina Fey, Ricky Gervais and Ty Burell were joined by their Muppet co-stars Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy and more for last night’s gala affair. As you can see in the gallery presented here, the Muppets made their red carpet arrival in a 2014 Toyota Highlander which was all decked out for their exclusive use. It looks like everyone in attendance had the best time ever. I’m hoping to see Muppets Most Wanted this weekend at an early screening but if not, I’ll be sure to check it out when it hits theaters next Friday March 21.
"You know, I'm starting to wonder"
After she famously fell during the Academy Awards telecast last year and then again on the Oscars red carpet this year, some people are starting to believe that Jennifer Lawrence‘s clumsy/stumbly behavior is not genuine. Chief among the folks who believe J. Law‘s behavior to be an act is Jared Leto, who has gotten to spend a lot of time around Jennifer during awards season this year. In new comments made by Leto, he makes clear that he is suspicious of Jennifer‘s clumsy behavior. More »
And the winner is, Lucky!
Our dear Britney Spears was not in attendance at the Academy Awards last night but she and her boyfriend David Lucado did make an appearance at Elton John‘s annual AIDS Foundation Oscar Party. As you can see in the gallery presented here, red-headed Britney brought the GLAM as only she can to Elton‘s soirée. Truth be told, I’m not really crazy about the neckline cut of Britney‘s dress but I think she did look fabulous last night. Check out the photos and let me know what you think of Britney‘s Oscar night look. Are you a fan?

Highs and Low
The biggest names in Tinseltown made an appearance at the Dolby Theater in Hollywood, CA last night to attend the 2014 Academy Awards. While the main reason to attend the Academy Awards is to honor achievement in film, the second biggest reason to attend the Oscars is to show off the hottest fashion looks of the awards season. There were a lot of great looks on the red carpet this year … and while there were some misses (Pharrell, I love you but I’m talking to you and those ill-chosen shorts), for the most part everyone looked great. I did have some issues with Kerry Washington‘s dress (which looked more like a wrinkled satin bed sheet than a flattering Oscar dress) but since she’s only milliseconds from giving birth, I’m willing to let her slide ;) Lupita Nyong’o, of course, was my fave look of the night … but Charlize Theron and Sandra Bullock looked amazing as well. Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie nailed it again, but they always look great so they were no big surprise. Click thru the gallery presented here to see some of the Oscar looks from last night’s show. Who was your fave? Who was your least fave?

She Brings Home her First NAACP Image Award
Earlier today we got to see a few photos of the pregnant and lovely Scandal star Kerry Washington at the 2014 NAACP Image Awards, which were handed out in Pasadena, CA last night. Right now we get to see photos of the non-pregnant but just-as-lovely 12 Years A Slave actress Lupita Nyong’o at the Image Awards last night. Like Kerry, Lupita walked home last night with an award after she won the Best Supporting Actress in a Motion Picture award for her work in 12 years. Naturally, Nyong’o looked amazing on the red carpet, as the photos in this gallery can attest. I just cannot get over the ease with which Lupita makes looking perfect seem so, well, easy. She is constantly without flaw. Her styling choices, her make-up, her hair, her poise … it’s almost superhuman. I am dying to see what she will wear to the Academy Awards next weekend. She is going to slay us all, you just wait and see.

And she brought home an award trophy
Kerry Washington, lookin’ radiantly pregs, made an appearance at the 45th annual NAACP Image Awards at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium in Pasadena, CA last night to attend the awards … and walk home with the award for Outstanding Actress in a Drama Series for her work on the ABC series Scandal. As you can see in the photos presented in this gallery, Kerry looked utterly amazing in a custom dress that was designed for her by Thakoon. As you may recall, Shannon reminded us a few days ago that Scandal is returning from its winter hiatus with new episodes this coming week (we saw the first new promo video for the new eps HERE) … but before the return of Scandal, Kerry had a make a stop at the Image Awards last night to collect her trophy, lookin’ fine as can be. Enjoy the photos, she looks amazing.

She says it's ...
WAY back in September we got to see concept art that alleges to show us the look of the new Batman suit that will be worn by new Batman Ben Affleck in the upcoming sequel to Man Of Steel (aka Superman vs. Batman) and, as you may recall, we heard from Affleck‘s BFF Kevin Smith that he has seen the new Batman suit with his own eyes and, as a Batman fan, he approves. Today we are hearing from Ben‘s wife Jennifer Garner and she, too, says that she has seen the new Batman suit (dang, at this point, who hasn’t seen the new suit?!) and she says it’s “unbelievably cool”. Ben and Jen, as you may recall we learned last month, will be living in Detroit, MI this summer as the Man of Steel sequel moves into filming production. Click the embed above to hear what Jen has to say about the new Batsuit. Honestly, I’ll believe the “unbelievable coolness” of this suit when I see it for myself. I’m curious, tho. Aren’t you?
At last, the movie is OUT
It has been many years since we first learned that RoboCop was being remade as a new film … waaaaay back in 2008 we first heard that plans were in the works to bring RoboCop back to the big screen but it took a long time for casting to get done and for filming to begin. THEN, the movie release date was pushed back from last summer to this winter … and last night, at long last, RoboCop finally premiered in Hollywood. The movie opens in theaters tomorrow and I’m hearing really good things about it. I’m very much looking forward to seeing this new RoboCop film in large part because it is set in the Detroit, MI of the future. Sigh. Click thru the gallery presented here and see some of the film’s stars, including Joel Kinnaman, Michael Keaton, Abbie Cornish, Gary Oldman and more, on the red carpet last night. I can’t decide if I’m going to see the movie at midnight tonight or wait until tomorrow. My anxious thirst is real so … we’ll see ;D
"I Am Not Famous Anymore", he says
Shia LaBeouf is doing everything he can, in the wackiest way possible, to generate as much attention to his attempt to inform the world that he is “not famous anymore”. While promoting his new film Nymphomaniac, he delivered one odd line to the assembled journalists at a press conference and then walked out and left the room. Then, later in the day, he walked the red carpet of his movie premiere in Berlin with a paper bag over his entire head with the phrase “I Am Not Famous Anymore” written on it … thereby ensuring that the incident would get more coverage then if he just walked the red carpet without a paper bag over his head. Some people find his behavior “crazy” or “odd” but I, personally, find it calculated and contrived. More »
