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!

Hollywood’s months-long celebration of itself comes to a close this Sunday with the Academy Awards, and we’ll be tweeting and drinking through the whole thing, as per usual. Starting at 6 p.m. EST, The Frisky (@TheFrisky on Twitter) will be tweeting the red carpet arrivals along with our fellow Buzz sites Celebuzz and Socialite Life using the hashtag #OscarBuzz and all you have to do is follow along to get all of our thoughts on what the stars are wearing. But for extra fun, have our Oscars Drinking Game rules handy — Julie (@havethehabit) and I (@xoamelia) will also be tweeting and drinking throughout the whole awards show. A grand time is sure to be had by all! See you Sunday!

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.
