I’m starting to get very, very concerned that “American Hustle,” the most boring overrated movie of the year (“The Wolf of Wall Street” is the most entertaining over-rated movie of the year, by comparison), has the momentum to beat “12 Years a Slave” as the Best Picture at Sunday’s Academy Awards. I will weep if that happens. Steve McQueen’s masterpiece is not only impeccable, but it’s important – and about such serious subject matter that NYMag.com couldn’t bring themselves to poke fun at the movie in one of their annual Oscar pie charts. Check out the chart for my second favorite movie of the year, “Her,” after the jump and the rest of the pie charts at the link! (The pie chart for “American Hustle” is more interesting than the actual movie, if you ask me.) [NYMag.com] Keep reading »
The Oscars are this Sunday, and I don’t know about you, but I have been positively, absolutely salivating from the anticipation of finally finding out — no, not which film will win “Best Picture” — how Jared Leto will style his gorgeous head of cascading ombre man locks for the occasion. Having seen those strands in person, having touched them however briefly, I can confirm that his hair is as great as photos suggest. It’s glossy and has the perfect copper-y ends, but is also limp in that way that only man hair can be limp and sexy. SO ANNOYING. Basically, it’s perfect, down or up, though you know I ride hard for man buns.
Which is why I am positively verklempt to read what his ombre expert (duh, of course he has one) has planned for Academy Awards night. Given that Jared is practically a lock to take home the Best Supporting Actor trophy for his role in “Dallas Buyers Club,” the man formerly-but-forever-known-as Jordan Catalano has got to look like a winner.

I haven’t put much stock in the Academy Awards since Michael Fassbender didn’t even get nominated for “Shame.” (Yes, I’m still mad about it.) But some people live and die by the Oscars and all the behind-the-scenes jockeying for awards that goes with it. Fearless reporter Michael Musto scrounged up one of the nearly 6,000 Oscar voters and interrogated him (or her) about what to expect for the 2014 nominees. Here’s what we learned: Keep reading »
With the Academy Awards just around the corner, many of the female celebs who will be attending this year’s ceremony — Jennifer Lawrence, Lupita N’yongo, Cate Blanchett, Amy Adams, etc. — will be looking to the runways this week in Paris, where the Spring 2014 Couture shows are in full swing, for some little ol’ thing to wear. Here are 28 gloriously gorgeous gowns from designers like Christian Dior, Armani Prive, Atelier Versace and Giambattista Valli, that we can imagine catching their eyes.
