10 Notorious Oscar Acceptance Speeches

speech slide 1 jpg
The 2011 Academy Awards are going down on Sunday night, which means that, as we speak, the frontrunners in every category are busy crafting their acceptance speeches and delivering them in the mirror, aiming for that perfect dose of “Who me? I never thought I’d win.” If Natalie Portman wins for Best Actress, as many people assume she is going to, will she continue her trend of drizzling vaguely inappropriate lines into her speeches? (“He totally wants to sleep with me!”) And if another favorite, Christian Bale, takes home Best Supporting Actor in “The Fighter,” will he unleash an expletive-filled tirade on par with his one from the set of “Terminator: Salvation?” Let’s hope not.

After the jump, 10 notorious Oscar speeches that we hope this year’s winners do not try to emulate.

Today’s Lady News: John Wayne Bobbitt And His Severed Penis Visit “The View”

  • John Wayne Bobbitt, the man who notoriously had his penis cut off by his then-wife, Lorena Bobbitt, because he allegedly raped her and had allegedly been physically abusing her, told “The View” that she has never apologized. But rest assured, ladies, his “thingy” now works fine. [Radar Online]
  • President Obama has told the Department of Justice to stop defending the anti-gay marriage Defense of Marriage Act in court. Woo-hoo! [Queerty, BuzzFeed]
  • Jacksonville, Florida, mayoral candidate Mike Hogan made a joke in public about bombing an abortion clinic. Ha … ha? [WJXT]
  • Did you know there is a Muslim feminist punk movement? [Alternet]

Kelly Osbourne Is A Material Girl

Taylor Momsen is a Material Girl no longer. Kelly Osbourne is now the face of Madonna and daughter Lourdes’ teen line and the ad campaign has hit the web. I think she looks amazing and her whole vibe really matches the brand’s aesthetic. It makes sense she would collab with Madge in some way — she did record her own version of “Papa Don’t Preach” way back when she was a pop star. Check out one more ad after the jump!

What’s The Most Ridiculous Post-Sex Request You’ve Ever Received?

This week’s standout caller on Dan Savage’s “Savage Love” podcast was the kind of guy you hope you never encounter, the kind of dude you hope your son never becomes. This gentleman had recently had sexual relations with a girl in his bed and when she left, he noticed that she had gotten some period blood on his white sheets. He wanted Dan’s opinion on whether it was her responsibility to replace them. The kicker? They were flannel sheets. Not 800-thread count Egyptian cotton. Flannel. Sigh. Keep reading »

Rosie O’Donnell Vs. “Glee”‘s Ashley Fink

Have you been watching “Glee”? Popular bad boy, Puck (played by Mark Salling), admitted he has the hots for bad ass big girl, Lauren (played by Ashley Fink). They aren’t officially a couple, but Puck is courting Lauren at her request while she plays hard to get. I was thinking it was just a matter of time before someone voiced an unkind opinion about the romance, but I didn’t expect it to come from Rosie O’Donnell. Find out what she said after the jump.

Oprah Talks To Transgender Model Lea T


Lea T has modeled for Givenchy and smooched Kate Moss on the cover of LOVE magazine: now the world’s most famous male-to-female transgender model is dishing the dirt on Oprah‘s couch. Er, armchair. I didn’t know this before, but Lea T was born Leandro Cerezo in Italy to a soccer star father and Catholic mother. I’m sure they are swelling with pride … at least until Oprah asked, “How do you, if I may ask, how do you hide your penis? You must have to strap that thing down in there?” Aaaaand scene.
