Tag Archives: academy awards
Some of Tinseltown’s hottest racks were out in full force last night at Hollywood’s most important event of the year, the Academy Awards, and we at The Frisky Institute for Boob Analysis—which previously studied the breasts on display at the SAG Awards, the Golden Globe Awards, the Emmy Awards, and the Grammy Awards—have painstakingly poured over the bunch. Behold, the mammaries of brand-new mom, Penelope Cruz. Thank you for your bounty, Mother Nature! We revere you! After the jump, we show you some of the best boobs of the evening—and some of the least boob-flattering dresses on the red carpet.
As this was the “young and hip!” Academy Awards, host James Franco took advantage of that new fangled thingy called the internet and posted photos online as the event was happening. My personal fave of his photos was this one, featuring an insanely baked looking Franco, a deer-in-headlights Oprah, and a so-perky-we-could-slap-her Anne Hathaway. [Who Say] Keep reading »
Maybe it was the fact that I’ve been in an outrageously good mood for the last few days. Perhaps it was the delicious glass of wine I was drinking. Or maybe (almost) all the female celebs who walked the red carpet at last night’s Academy Awards really did look so incredible that I was hard-pressed to find anything I absolutely despised. How could I put together a Good, Bad & Ugly slideshow if the the worst I could find was “meh”? Even the WTF dresses walking the red carpet were WTF in a fun, fascinating way, rather than a “good god, who let her leave the house?!” sort of way. So, I decided to say, “To hell with it!” and dole out mostly love. Keep clicking to see which stars looked stunning, which were sort of strange, and who was simply so-so.
We’ll be posting all about the Oscars tomorrow, but I couldn’t resist giving you a little tease. Helena Bonham Carter swore that she would be a “catastrophe” on the red carpet, but I think her Union Jack garter belt — on her calve?! — is pure insane genius. I love this woman so hard. Keep reading »
Happy Oscar Day! In just a few hours, the stars will start walking the red carpet and hosts James Franco and Anne Hathaway will be double- and triple-checking that they’ve got their lines down. In honor of Hollywood’s biggest award show — and no doubt because they have a raging crush on him like we do — the blog Lovelyish has put together the Definitive Collection of James Franco GIFs. Check out a couple more after the jump and the rest here. Keep reading »
When you’ve been writing about the Oscars as much as I have been this week, an inevitable question pops into your head: why is an Academy Award called an Oscar? Apparently, no one is 100 percent sure. But the most accepted version of the story is that the first time the Academy librarian saw the little statue, she said that it looked like her Uncle Oscar. (Really? Because I think he looks like a golden robot.) The name took hold informally—a columnist used it in print for the first time in 1939, in a piece about Katharine Hepburn. Five years later, the Academy decided to adopt the name for themselves. Just a little trivia for you to bust out at your viewing party. [Oscars.org] Keep reading »
