The Oscar Nominations Are So White Yet Again As “Selma” Is Basically Snubbed

  • The Academy Award nominations were announced today and lemme just tell you something, I am underwhelmed. Snubbing the actors AND the director, Ava DuVernay, of “Selma,” but nominating Bradley Cooper and Keira Knightley? UGHHHHHH x 1000. Other snubs include Jake Gyllenhaal in “Nightcrawler,” Jennifer Aniston in “Cake,” and Amy Adams in “Big Eyes.” “Selma” did score a best picture nom, as did “Birdman” and “Boyhood.” [People]
  • Last week, Jennifer Aniston talked about her “first love” from 20 years was the one, but they broke up and then he died and he sent her Justin Theroux instead. I remember thinking that was an awfully self-absorbed way of reflecting on the passing of someone from your past, and turns out, his widow didn’t appreciate it either. [Redbook/Facebook]
  • Plus-size model Ashley Graham is slamming Hollywood for glorifying Jennifer Lawrence’s “tiny” curves. [Us Weekly]
  • Gwyneth Paltrow is dishing on her exes, saying that Brad Pitt was “too good” for her and Ben Affleck “wasn’t ready.” [Us Weekly]
  • Naya Rivera is backtracking on her comments that showering excessively is a “white people thing,” probably because she read my essay on the topic. [US Weekly]
  • Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield are not getting married (yet anyway). [Gossip Cop]
  • Usher is engaged to Grace Miguel. Meanwhile Chili had to go on “Millionaire Matchmaker” to find a date. SAD FACE. [DListed]
