The Five Funniest Oscar Moments

The movie business holds the Academy Awards in such high regard it can make or break a distribution deal. Luckily, actors don’t (always) take themselves so seriously. Aside from the over-the-top gushing that came when past winners introduced the nominees for the acting awards, there were plenty of LOL moments from last night’s Oscars (not including the moment when the camera caught Angelina Jolie laughing at Jennifer Aniston['s joke], above). From Styx lyrics in speeches to Steve Martin’s ego mania, here are our five favorite funnies…

I know there are a few of you dedicated “Bachelor” fans out there, so for your sake, I’m going to put this juicy tidbit about the show’s season finale after the jump.

Runway DJ: New York Fashion Week Music

Fashion Week isn’t just an event for seeing next season’s clothes and spotting celebs sitting front row. It’s also one of the best places to hear new music (and remember songs that you’d long forgotten). While live music was a huge trend for Fall 2009 — Zac Posen had the 5 Browns playing five Steinway pianos on his runway, and Lissy Trullie and her band rocked Phillip Lim’s show — there were still awesome tunes blaring as models stomped down the runways last week. After the jump, listen to 15 of our favorite songs playing during New York Fashion Week. Keep reading »

Will Hugh Jackman Be A Successful Oscar Host?

When we first heard that Hugh Jackman was hosting tonight’s Academy Awards, we were confused. Don’t they always have comedians host? In the past 20 years, the hosts have all been well-known funny people, i.e., Billy Crystal, David Letterman, Steve Martin, Ellen DeGeneres, Chris Rock, and Jon Stewart. But even if Jackman isn’t a stand-up comedian, he does have credentials that seem to make him qualified. He’s hosted the Tony Awards three times, even winning an Emmy for the 2004 Tonys, and he can sing and dance better than Billy Crystal. And he has one more thing going for him: He’s lovely to look at. Not to put down Crystal, our favorite Oscar host, but Jackman is what we’d call “dashing.” We shall see if good looks, charm, and musical theater experience are enough to make our Sunday night enjoyable. Above, a video of Jackman hosting the Tonys to give you a taste of what to expect. Keep reading »

Book Smart: Oscar Reads “Frost/Nixon”

Oscar time and Hollywood goes all highbrow on us, taking cues for Tony Award nominated, dramatic the-a-ter. Sure, you saw the movie, but what do you know about the play?

In “Frost/Nixon,” Richard Nixon and David Frost (British satirist-slash-serious-news-guy who used to be huge in the ’70s) face-off on national TV after Dirty Dick’s fall from grace. Adapted by Peter Morgan from his own play, the flick is up for five Oscars including Best Pic and Best Actor for Frank Langella, who actually makes you feel sorry for the former crook/prez in a weepy Shakespearean tragedy sort of way.
