10 Reasons Why Jeff Bridges Is Awesome

We couldn’t have been happier when Jeff Bridges won Best Actor for his role as Bad Blake in “Crazy Heart.” [The Dude abides! — Editor Amelia, President of the Jeff Bridges Rocks My Panties Club] He’s one of the most unpretentious actors out there who’s been under-appreciated for far too long. He comes across as… More »


Academy Snubs Farrah Fawcett And Bea Arthur In Memorial Montage

If you made it through the entirety of the Oscars last night, you probably noticed something missing. Well, two things missing. During the annual memorial montage, two bold-faced names who passed away this year were conspicuously absent—Farrah Fawcett and Bea Arthur. Friends and admirers of Fawcett’s have been taking to Twitter to protest the decision. More »


10 Reasons We Love Sandra Bullock

I will admit it. I am one of the 10 people in America who has not traditionally been a Sandra Bullock fan. Why? Because she got herself pigeonholed as the romantic comedy queen—playing the quirky, irreverent, clutzy girl over and over again, and making me want to gag in the process. But last night, Sandra… More »


Did Our Oscar Theories Hold Any Water?

Fine, so you didn’t exactly need a functioning crystal ball to predict last night’s big Oscar winners. Christoph Waltz won for Best Supporting Actor for “Inglourious Basterds,” Mo’Nique won Best Supporting Actress for “Precious,” Jeff Bridges won Best Actor for “Crazy Heart,” and Sandra Bullock won Best Actress for “The Blind Side.” They were the… More »


Quotable: SJP’s Druggy Oscars Dress

“An orange Sarah Jessica Parker looked as if she were dressed by Barbara Streisand’s coke dealer.”– Literary agent and blogger Erin Hosier’s take on the supposed fashion icon’s outfit [The Forest for the Trees] … More »


11 Things George Clooney Might’ve Been Pissed About At The Oscars

Was is just me, or did George Clooney seem totally pissed off at the Oscars last night? His sour puss act in the front row almost made me miss Jack Nicholson smirking in his dark sunglasses. And George’s lady, Elisabetta Canalis, wasn’t looking too chipper either—those two had “Debbie Downer” written all over their faces. More »


Kathryn Bigelow Wore Jeweled Bands, But Not On Her Ring Finger

I’m not usually a fan of rings worn on fingers other than the fourth unless it’s a chunky cocktail ring, but there’s an exception to every rule, and this time it’s Academy Award winner Kathryn Bigelow. At last night’s Oscars, where she won Best Director, Kathryn had two sparkly bands on her index finger –… More »


Quotable: Jake And Rachel, Sittin’ In A Tree

“This is Rachel McAdams. She’s the mother of my child!”
Jake Gyllenhaal, overheard introducing Rachel to a friend outside the Oscars. Please, please, please let these two get together for real. They were so adorable sitting next to each other and presenting together last night, we almost couldn’t take it. [People] … More »


10 Reasons We Love Kathryn Bigelow, The First Woman To Win Best Director

Last night, in perhaps the highlight of a very loooooong evening, Kathryn Bigelow won the award for Best Director, making her the first woman to win in the category, ever. (Lina Wertmuller, Jane Campion, and Sofia Coppola were nominated, but didn’t come out victorious. Sigh.) Shockingly, only 17 percent of directors are female, which explains… More »

Oscar Theory #6: A Great Name Will Win Ya Best Picture

Guessing who will win the major awards at Sunday night’s Oscars is hardly like picking winning lottery numbers. The Academy tends to be pretty predictable: Best Actress generally goes to America’s Sweetheart (who later gets divorced); Best Actor goes to the guy with the most previous nominations; Best Supporting Actress goes to a breakout star;… More »


“Jersey Shore” Brings More Guido Flair To The Best Picture Nominees

As you may have heard through The Frisky grapevine, the cast of “Jersey Shore” is doing a series of Best Picture nominee spoofs in the days leading up to the Oscars. Well, now we have three more videos—let us consider it a gift from the guido gods. Check out Snooki doing her best… More »


Oscar Theory #5: Win Best Actress, Get Divorced

Over the past nine years, a slightly disturbing trend has emerged for whoever ascends the stage, teary-eyed, to collect the Best Actress statue. Almost all the winners in this time period have gotten divorced, or called off super long-term relationships that seemed to have no expiration date. And none of these breakups were exactly amicable.

The “Jersey Shore” Goes To The Oscars, Kind Of

In anticipation for this Sunday’s Academy Awards, “Lopez Tonight” had the “Jersey Shore” cast perform guido versions of scenes from some of the Best Picture nominees, including “The Hurt Locker” (above) and “Inglourious Basterds.” Hy-sterical. I can’t wait to see Snooki go blue in “Avatar.” [TBS] … More »


Oscar Theory #4: Best Supporting Actor Goes To … The Creepy Guy

The way I see it, this year’s Best Supporting Actor race is between two actors—Christoph Waltz, who won both the SAG and Golden Globe for his role in “Inglourious Basterds,” and Stanley Tucci, who was the one good part of the fairly universally panned “The Lovely Bones.” Why these two? Because the characters on screen… More »


10 Reasons We’re Excited For The Oscars

Holla! The Oscars are this Sunday! I get a little bit giddy each year imaging who will win, who will have the most ridiculous acceptance speech, and who will offend us all with their poor choice of attire. This year, we should expect more fun than ever before with hosts Alec Baldwin and Steve Martin. More »


Oscar Theory #3: The Out-Of-Nowhere Star Gets Best Supporting Actress

Let’s play Oscar psychic for a minute, OK? I have a pretty good idea of who is going to win this year’s Best Supporting Actress Award. My crystal ball says Mo’Nique—and not just because she won both the Golden Globe and SAG awards. See, the Academy is pretty darn predictable on who they decide to… More »


Carey Mulligan Ignores Anna Wintour’s Oscar Advice

While not everyone was crazy about the black and white Vionnet dress Carey Mulligan wore to the BAFTA Awards last weekend, the 24-year-old actress thinks she has everything under control in the wardrobe department. Carey told People StyleWatch she’s not going to follow Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour’s advice when she’s picking her dress for the… More »
