Zergnet: Simply Irresistible
Starting tonight at 7:30 pm EST, some very Fetching ladies, Jessica, Robyn, and Sasha will be live blogging the Academy Awards’ Red Carpet pre-show on ABC. Let’s face it — aside from the initial few big awards given away at the beginning, and the big awards handed out at the end, don’t we all tune in for this nonsense to see what the ladies are wearing? Oh, and remember, if you decide to stick it out for the entire Oscars, you can play Frisky Oscar Bingo when you get bored… Anyway, check back with this post at 7:30 to get the lowdown on the red carpet happenings as they occur. — Editor Keep reading »

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.

Above, a video of Jackman hosting the Tonys to give you a taste of what to expect. Keep reading »
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.
