Stay-At-Home Barista

I love coffee, and probably spend around 10 percent of my income on buying espresso-heavy coffee treats. But not anymore! The at-home DeLonghi EC155 Espresso Maker produces the perfect shot of espresso, and contains a steam wand to froth up creamy steamed milk. I’m saving tons of money by making my fancy coffee drinks at home, and I feel like I’ve really stepped up my kitchen accoutrement game. Isn’t it so much nicer to say, “would you like a latte” than a cup of coffee, anyway?

“[My boyfriend]‘s definitely not a gorilla juicehead. But, you know, he’s a guido. … I would consider Regis a hot ape. A grown-up gorilla.”

—Surprise! Snooki‘s latest hookup on “Jersey Shore,” the one the guys busted in on her with in the smush room, is now her boyfriend. She tells Regis Philbin and Kelly Ripa about him, and throws Regis some love at the same time. Let’s just hope we don’t see Regis get progressively tanner over the next few weeks.

Cheapskate: The ModCloth Sale

Attention, hipsters! Put down McSweeney’s and turn off “Portlandia” because it’s time for ModCloth’s Cabin Fever sale. Some of the goodies are up to 70 percent off, which will give you plenty of money left over to invest in that cupcake food truck you’ve been trying to start.

I poked around the ModCloth sale and tried to keep in mind Amelia’s Style 911 advice on how to dress feminine without veering into “young Blair Waldorf” territory. Did I do a good job or do I need further tutoring?

Gwyneth Paltrow Returning To “Glee”


Woo-hoo! It looks like our favorite substitute teacher, Holly Holiday (played by Gwyneth Paltrow), is returning to McKinley High, and this time she’ll be teaching sex-ed. As predicted, it looks like Holly and Will Schuester will be hooking up this time around, much to Emma’s chagrin. “Maybe it’s time I learned a little bit about romance,” said Holly. “I happen to be an excellent educator,” he says before dipping her, as the two ballroom dance to Prince’s “Kiss.” Yes, please!

Oscar Theory #11: Whoever Wins The BAFTA Gets The Oscar

When it comes to the acting awards at the year’s Oscars, it looks things could get very British. No, not because the world has gone mad over Prince William and Kate Middleton’s wedding. Because Brit Colin Firth looks like an almost shoe-in to win Best Actor for his performance in “The King’s Speech,” while his fellow countryman Christian Bale—who in all honesty, I didn’t realize was British until just a few weeks ago—is the favorite to win Best Supporting Actor. While we were too busy with the Super Bowl to watch the BAFTA Awards—that’s the British Academy of Film and Television Arts—maybe we should have been paying more attention. Back in 2000, the British award show moved to February so that it would it would precede the Oscars. Ever since, it has become like looking in a crystal ball. Last year, 12 of the 18 major BAFTA winners went on to win Oscars. [EW]

The predictive powers of the BAFTAs get even more impressive when you limit it to the top six categories—Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Supporting Actor, and Best Supporting Actress. I crunched the numbers and, over the past few years, 80 percent of the winners have overlapped. After the jump, take a look at the BAFTA effect played out in the past few years, and what it could mean for this year’s Oscar hopefuls. Keep reading »
