Here Are The Nominees For The 2014 Academy Awards!

Here Are The Nominees For The 2014 Academy Awards!

This morning, the nominees for the 2014 Academy Awards were announced. For the most part, the nominees were expected, and there were few noticeable snubs — though I am still steaming that James Franco in “Spring Breakers” has been all but overlooked this awards season. Check out the full list of nominees after the jump! (And, because I HAVE AN OPINION, DAMMIT, my picks for who I think should win in the top categories are in bold.) Keep reading »

Jennifer Lawrence Blames Cake For Her Fall At The Oscars

“I was at the Oscars, waiting to hear
 if my name was called, and I kept thinking, Cakewalk, cakewalk, cakewalk. I thought, Why is ‘cakewalk’ stuck in my head? And then, as I started to walk up the stairs and the fabric from my dress tucked under my feet, I realized my stylist had told me, ‘Kick, walk, kick, walk.’ You are supposed to kick the dress out while you walk, and I totally forgot because I was thinking about cake! And that’s why I fell.”

Jennifer Lawrence has a typically Jennifer Lawrence explanation (i.e. food-related) for her stumble at last year’s Academy Awards. As I’m sure you recall, when J. Law started up the stairs to accept her award for Best Actress (in “Silver Linings Playbook”), she tripped on the hem of her voluminous Dior gown. Given her very vocal enthusiasm for food, I guess we shouldn’t be surprised that dessert was front of mind on the biggest night of her career. [W Magazine]

Jennifer Lawrence Falls Into An Imaginary Ad

Jennifer Lawrence cemented her status as an adorable klutz when she fell up the stairs on the way to accept her Oscar for Best Actress. But her televised tumble was somehow also kind of graceful and gorgeous, wasn’t it? Tumblr user i-nsan proved that point by re-envisioning J.Law’s embarrassing moment as a striking ad for Christan Dior, designer of beautiful, if easy-to-trip-on gowns. Don’t be surprised if you see this in next month’s Vogue. [Tumblr]

Ben Affleck’s Dreamy Oscar Beard Is No More

Ben Affleck reportedly grew his stately beard as a good luck charm for the awards season, and while it didn’t secure him a Best Director nomination, it did get his movie an Oscar for Best Picture. All in all, not bad for a good luck beard, right? But now it seems Ben’s famous facial hair is no more: apparently Jennifer Garner brought clippers to an Oscars after party at a Hollywood restaurant, and, bolstered by tequila shots and cheered on by George Clooney, shaved it off in the hallway (a bit unsanitary, yes, but hell hath no fury like a woman who’s tired of her husband’s beard).

Ami was delighted to hear Ben’s beard is gone, while I’m in a bit of a mourning period myself. I thought it looked great, mostly because it made him more closely resemble Commander Riker from “Star Trek: The Next Generation,” and that is always a good thing. [Truth. -- Amelia] What do you think? Weigh in below! [Us Weekly]

Nicki Minaj & Rihanna Got Frisky? Plus, More Oscar Gossip!

  • And here are the seven geekiest moments. I know I’m not the only one who noticed that they played the wrong “Star Trek” music when Chris Pine and Zoe Saldana came on stage. That was the “Star Trek: The Next Generation” theme, not “Star Trek: The Original Series.” I realize that the music also appeared in “Star Trek: The Motion Picture,” but the “Star Trek” reboot takes place before that so… <END RANT> [The Mary Sue] Keep reading »

…And Now Here’s Every Other Star Who Attended Vanity Fair’s Oscar Party

I’m gonna give it to your straight: if you didn’t get invited to Vanity Fair‘s infamous Oscar party, you’re probably a sad, pathetic commoner like me. Practically everyone in Hollywood was there, though I chose to only feature those who didn’t attend the awards or who changed into a pretty new frock for the party. And by the way, as much as we loved so many of the dresses on the Oscar red carpet, the dresses at Vanity Fair party put those to shame. Ah-mazing.

Seth MacFarlane’s Most Offensive Oscar Jokes

Academy bosses must have known Seth MacFarlane would come to the Oscars armed with a few bad-taste jokes—and the “Family Guy” creator did not disappoint. Some of the rookie host’s more controversial moments, as per Entertainment Weekly and the Huffington Post:

  • “Django Unchained” ”is the story of a man fighting to get back his woman, who’s been subjected to unthinkable violence—or as Chris Brown and Rihanna call it, ‘a date movie,’” MacFarlane said. Boos were heard when he added, “A lot of controversies over the use of the n-word in the film. I’m told apparently the screenplay is loosely based on Mel Gibson’s voicemails.” Read more…

"I'll be waiting!"

Yup, this is just about how I’d imagine such an encounter would go. Oscar winner Jennifer Lawrence was doing an interview with ABC last night when the vaguely lecherous (but in a cute-ish way?) Jack Nicholson interrupted to compliment her on her performance in “Silver Linings Playbook.” Jennifer is naturally a bit starstruck at having Jack introduce himself to her, but that didn’t stop her from remarking, “Do I look like your new girlfriend?” Oh yeah, he’ll be waiting. PRICELESS.

The Worst Dressed At The 2013 Academy Awards

This year’s Academy Awards were rather exceptional — no, not because of Anne Hathaway’s annoyingly breathless acceptance speech — but because there were relatively few fashion missteps on the red carpet. Even Helena Bonham-Carter, a reliable style weirdo, managed to reign in her batcrackers look just a tad. So while these looks technically fall in the “worst dressed” category, we’d probably take any of these gowns over some of the crappy looks you might catch at the Grammys or the MTV Awards.
