What We Missed: Talkin’ Anne Hathaway, Plan B & Music Nostalgia! Plus, A Special Guest!

Oh, And Lucca Show Off Her Humping Skills!

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!

* Well, there are two special guests if you include Lucca, who wanted to show you guys her humping skills before we started the show. (To answer your questions before you ask: 1) she only humps soft toys, 2) yes, I’m sure she’s a girl, and 3) yes, I totally encourage it because I don’t want to shame her for expressing her sexuality/need to dominate.)

10 People Who Deserve To Win An Oscar On Sunday — But They Weren’t Nominated

Oscars Drinking Game!
Play along -- and get plastered -- with us this Sunday! Read More »

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!

Feel Like A Star On Oscar Night With These 9 Luxurious Treatments

I don’t care how cliche it is, I am a girl that loves a good awards show. The bigger the stars (and the more of them), the better. The Oscars have all of my favorite things in one place: glitzy dresses fresh off the runway? Check. Incredible hair and makeup? Check. Acceptance speeches that run the gamut from hilarious to tear-jerking to obnoxious to secondhand embarassment-inducing? Check. A valid reason to drink to excess and yell at the TV screen that doesn’t involve sports? Check! I don’t necessarily wish I was famous (though there are some pretty undeniable perks, i.e. free everything), but I definitely like to approach Oscars night as the ideal opportunity to act like I am. This doesn’t mean I like to get all dressed up and put on loads of borrowed jewelry and have an awkward conversation with Giuliana Rancic — actually, it’s kind of the opposite. Come Sunday night, I will be doing one thing and one thing only, and that is treating myself with some full-fledged pampering, fuzzy bathrobe style. Or shall we say, celeb-style? So please, get your hair masques, face masques, everything masques at the ready. Put your best pajamas on and pop the Moët & Chandon (it’s the official champagne of the Oscars!). Here are the luxurious treatments I’ll be indulging in while I sit back and watch the 85th Academy Awards…

Oscar Night 2013: Dressing The Nominees

2013 Oscar Noms
Here are this year's Academy Award nominees! Read More »

The 85th Academy Awards are this Sunday, and some of our favorite actresses have been nominated to take home the gold. We couldn’t be more proud of their career achievements… but we also want to know, what are they going to wear? Or more accurately, we want them to know what we think they should wear. Got that? We can’t count on Jessica Chastain, Jennifer Lawrence, Naomi Watts, Amy Adams, and Anne Hathaway heeding our attempts at styling, but there’s no harm in trying. If I were dressing these five Oscar nominees, here’s what I would put them in…

"'The Hunger Games' -- isn't that your life story?"

The esteemed celebrity talk show “Between Two Ferns,” hosted by my boyfriend Zach Galifianakis, has at long last returned from an agonizing nine-month hiatus (did Zach have a baby or something?). Better yet, it’s back with a special Oscars edition, featuring interviews with Academy Award nominees Jennifer Lawrence, Naomi Watts, Christoph Waltz, Anne Hathaway, and Amy Adams. Hathaway’s performance is groan-worthy, to say the very least, but if you’ve ever wanted to hear The Impossible Naomi Watts talk about diarrhea, now’s your chance! Also, I don’t know if it’s the pneumonia or what, but Jennifer Lawrence has, like, the sexiest voice of all time. I would like to borrow her vocal cords. Weird! Anyway, get ready to shudder with secondhand awkwardness! [Gawker]

For Your Consideration: The Best Anne Hathaway Parody Ever?

"I play a prostitute who diessssssss..."

Listen, it’s only fair. Anne Hathaway has very capably spoofed fellow actresses Claire Danes and Katie Holmes, so she should feel honored to have someone spoofing her. In the video above, directed by USC graduate student Alberto Belli, actress Emma Fitzpatrick plays Anne as Fantine from “Les Miserables,” pleading for Oscar votes to the tune of her famous solo, “I Dreamed A Dream.” Hathaway is, like, a shoe-in to win the Best Supporting Actress Oscar and has, I think, won every other award she’s been up for this awards season, including the Golden Globe and the SAG Award.

7 Actors Hit By The “Oscar Curse”

Jessica Chastain is quite the “it” girl right now. Not only are her movies doing well at the box office, she recently won a Golden Globe and is nominated for an Oscar. But she should watch out: Award winners often go on to, shall we say, less than award-worthy projects. Celebuzz rounds up seven actors whose careers tanked, at least for a bit, after they won Oscars:

  • After Renee Zellweger won Best Supporting Actress for “Cold Mountain,” she made “one of the worst movies Hollywood made about women in the last two decades,”  ”Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason.” “Cinderella Man,” “New in Town,” and “Case 39″ weren’t much better. Read more…

Fashion Face-Off: Oscar’s Best Actress & Best Supporting Actress Nominees

The Oscar noms are in, and now we’re left to twiddle our thumbs and wait to find out who won all the awards. In the meantime, we figured we could at least take a look at how the lady nominees stack up in the style department.

Feel free to take guesses on what they’ll be wearing, and who’ll come out on top, in the comments!
