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?

My Oscar Sunday was a really nice, really relaxing one. My friend Tamar let me crash out on her couch so that we could watch the Academy Awards together but that was only part of the reason why I wanted to hang out with her. You see, I’ve started a new relationship and the only way that I would be able to spend my Oscar night with the date of my choosing was to met up with her, yes her, at Tam’s place. You see, me and Tam’s dog Lola have got a thing going on and, well … I think it might be turning serious. More »
Shortly after Matthew McConaughey won the Academy Award for Best Actor last night, his high school prom picture was uploaded and shared on Twitter by his prom date’s niece, Leah Pickett. Pickett is a contributor to the Chicago Tribune and she felt Matthew‘s Oscar moment was the perfect time to share his prom picture with the world … and she was right. The photo immediately started making the rounds on Twitter, for obvious reasons, and you can click below to see the full-size image for yourselves. More »
A little over a week ago, we learned that Pharrell Williams put his famous Vivienne Westwood hat — the one that caused such a sensation at the 2014 Grammy Awards last month — up for auction on eBay in an attempt to raise funds for charity. Today we learn that the auction ended last night and the hat sold for $44,100.00 to the Arby’s corporation. LOL! As you may recall, many folks commented publicly (me included) that Pharrell‘s hat looks very much like the hat used in the Arby’s logo … clearly, the company felt the same and decided that they needed to own the hat. Again, I say, LOL! More »

OH MAN … here we go again … Justin Bieber appears to be making a play to get back into ex-girlfriend Selena Gomez‘s good graces with a photo collage he posted on his official Instagram profile. Just a short time ago, Bieber posted a photo collage of Selena at an Oscars afterparty last night with a caption that refers to her as an “elegant princess”. It seems pretty evident to me that homie is trying to woo her back with this post on Instagram that has generated so much traffic that the entire social network crashed for about 50 minutes (even now, Instagram is still a big laggy). Click below to see Justin‘s tribute to Selena and see if YOU think it’ll be enough for him to win back her lurve. More »
Earlier today we saw some photos from the red carpet arrivals from the 2014 Academy Awards last night but right now, let’s take another look at which movies and actors walked home with Oscars last night night. This morning I posted video of Lupita Nyong’o delivering her emotionally powerful acceptance speech when she won the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress for her work in 12 Years a Slave — so she was definitely my fave win of the night — but the gallery presented here features some of the other folks who won Oscars last night. I was very happy that Cate Blanchett won for Best Actress, Matthew McConaughey won for Best Actor and Jared Leto won for Best Supporting Actor … but other than Lupita‘s win, my favorite win of the night was 12 Years a Slave‘s win for Best Picture.

Oscar host Ellen DeGeneres, in an attempt at “keeping it real” during the Academy Awards, did a few comedy bits last night where she took selfie photos on her Samsung Galaxy smartphone that she immediately shared with her legion of followers on Twitter. Near the start of the show, Ellen took a selfie of herself looking out over the assembled Oscars audience. Then, in an attempt to set a world record for the most retweeted image ever, she gathered together a group of actors (and Luptia Nyong’o‘s non-actor brother Peter) for the greatest selfie of all time, and shared it with the world. Finally, she snapped a very unflattering selfie photo with Liza Minneli (who always looks drunk) lookin’ drunk. It was the Selfie Oscars, y’all! Click below to see the selfie photos that Ellen snapped last night. More »

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?

Actress Lupita Nyong’o, who has become a personal favorite to a great many people the world over this awards season, was awarded the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress at the 2014 Academy Awards last night. Altho I don’t have a personal stake in Oscar winners, I couldn’t help but hold very strong feelings about Lupita‘s nomination because from the first moment I saw her performance in 12 Years a Slave last year, I knew that she was the ONLY actor who 100% deserved to win an Academy Award this year. Yes, there are many other very deserving actors out there but Lupita, for me, was the only actor that mattered this year. I held my breath as her category was announced and I literally jumped out of my seat when she was announced as the winner. Click the video embedded above to watch Lupita Nyong’o deliver her acceptance speech at the Academy Awards last night (in case you missed it, her speech was utterly flawless) and then click below to see a few photos of a very happy Lupita posing with her Oscar last night.
