For the most part, last night’s Academy Awards were painfully unfunny — Seth MacFarlane, NEVER AGAIN — and way, way, way too long. But there were some great acceptance speeches, unplanned gaffes, and plenty of moments ripe for GIFing. Because I love you, allow me to recap everything worth recapping from last night’s Oscars, in pics, GIFs, and video clips… Keep reading »

Hollywood’s biggest stars absolutely looked their best at last night’s Academy Awards — so much so that we had a difficult time finding much we didn’t like. So for the most part, we’re going to focus on what we loved. We already showed you those wearing stunning sequins — and here are seven women who decided to go for the princess effect for their big night.

Last night’s Oscars draggggggged on and on, but if you managed to stay up for the full exhausting affair, and were fooling around on Twitter at the same time, then you probably saw controversy erupt over a tweet posted to The Onion’s account.
Everyone seems afraid to say it, but that Quvenzhane Wallis is kind of a cunt right?
Quvenzhane Wallis is nine years old, you guys. Not okay, The Onion. But they weren’t alone. Seth MacFarlane crossed the line big time too. Keep reading »
For the first time maybe ever, there were not a lot of fashion missteps on last night’s Academy Awards red carpet. Nearly every single Hollywood star brought it and we were hard pressed to find anything we didn’t like. So we decided to break down a couple of the trends that stood out, starting with the lovely ladies who got their sparkle on…

Still not sure who you think is going to win Best Picture tonight? Why not try a strictly mathematical approach. That is, our buddy Jesse David Fox’s vigorously researched Oscar Movie Pie Charts, which detail all the uh, details of each Best Picture nominee. For instance, did you know that “Argo” is basically 25 percent about “that week in college you pretended to be from Canada,” and another five percent “the child-hugging end of ‘Mrs. Doubtfire’”? I’m going to go ahead and pretty much guarantee you had no idea that’s what “Argo” was about. For that and more incredible filmic revelations, please enjoy a few more pie charts after the jump. For the whole slate, click the link. And don’t forget to follow @TheFrisky, @xoamelia, @havethehabit and the hashtag #OscarBuzz for all livetweeting action tonight starting at 6 p.m. [NYMag.com]

Our special guest* in this week’s episode is our friend Andy Scott from Celebuzz, who dropped by our office (down the hall from his) to talk about his recent revelation that he’s not so fond of Anne Hathaway. Then he stuck around to listen to us prattle on about the importance of having access to Plan B, and get nostalgic about the music of our youths. Check out the episode above and share your thoughts — do you dislike Anne Hathaway? have you ever taken Plan B? do you frown upon the music of today? — in the comments!
