The Oscars are this Sunday, which means it’s time for snotty people who think they know better — i.e. moi – to complain about who should win but can’t because the Academy was stupid to nominate them. Here are 10 people who were completely screwed out of an Oscar nod this year, which blows because if I had my way, they would all win too. (Yeah, some of them overlap in categories, but in a world where I have a say in such things, there are tons of awards to go around.) Think I missed someone? Share who you wish was nominated in the comments!
Looks like Matthew McConaughey is the latest in a long line of celebs to drop a pretty shocking amount of weight for a role. In recent days McConaughey has been spotted around Austin looking downright frail after losing at least 30 pounds on a liquids-only diet to prep for a movie called “The Dallas Buyers Club.” As the actor recently explained to Larry King: “It takes a while for your body to understand that it has to feed off of itself and that you’re not going to give it something else from the outside.” Damn. Suddenly we really want a donut.
So, what other celebs have gone to dieting extremes for the sake of their craft? Who lost the most? How did they do it? Check out our gallery to find out! [Huffington Post]
I think this is the first good look I’ve gotten at little Vida Alves McConaughey, the two-year-old daughter of Matthew McConaughey and Camila Alves. She’s so cute! Look at those shades. Werk. [Fame/Flynet]
These two! They’re at Cannes (of course) at the premiere of “The Paperboy,” starring Kidman, McConaughey and a delicate little flower known as Zac Efron. I like to imagine they’re having an “attractive-off” and Kidman is chiding McConaughey for wearing a shirt. Or maybe she’s asking him why he left his bongos at home. What do you think?
Six weeks! Six weeks until the world gets to see Channing Tatum (and Joe Manganiello and Matthew McConaughey and Matt Bomer) bumping and grinding in nothin’ but a pair of tight skivvies on the big screen. I really hope “Magic Mike” — opening June 29 — is playing at the IMAX theater. I need to see this hotness on as large a screen as possible. Entertainment Weekly just released a whole mess of photos from their current issue’s cover shoot with the cast and, I swear, I almost started tossing dollar bills at my screen and whooping.
