The 2011 MTV VMAs: The Best And Worst Moments

Last night, as the East Coast was coming out of our hurricane cocoons, the music-eratti descended on Los Angeles for the 26th annual MTV Video Music Awards. Now, this awards show is always confusing, mainly because MTV hardly plays music videos anymore, so it seems strange to have an awards show for them. But it’s always a night for over-the-top performances, and where stars can wear their most insane ensembles, no questions asked.

After the jump, the moments from the show that got us cheering and jeering. Keep reading »

Neil Patrick Harris Rocks The 2011 Tony Awards

I would like to make a case for Neil Patrick Harris hosting, well, every awards show ever. Last night, he helmed the 2011 Tony Awards. Trey Parker and Matt Stone’s “Book Of Mormon” cleaned up, taking home nine awards over the course of the night—but that wasn’t the spectacular part. No, the highlight was Neil’s awesome musical numbers. Above, catch the opening song, in which Neil hilariously welcomes straight people to the theater. “Because Broadway has never been broader/ It’s not just for gays anymore,” he sings before busting out the best line ever, “We’re asking every hetero to get to know us better-o.” The whole number turned out awesome aside from Brooke Shields‘ strange flub.

Oh, and if you didn’t watch the full show, no worries—at the end, Neil did an awesome rap re-capping all the winners and events of the night. Watch it after the jump. Keep reading »

A “Fast Times At Ridgemont High” Reunion

MTV wasn’t the only cable network to hold an award show this weekend. On Saturday night, Spike TV threw its annual Guys Choice Awards with heavy hitters like Justin Timberlake, Scarlett Johansson, Jason Bateman, Jennifer Aniston, and Mark Wahlberg in attendance. We, the viewing public, won’t get to see the show until Friday night at 10 p.m. But there is one moment I am really excited about. Apparently, the show boasts a “Fast Times at Ridgemont High” reunion. Even Sean Penn agreed to be part of the festivities, joining director Amy Heckerling and castmates Judge Reinhold, Robert Romanus, Brian Backer, and Forest Whitaker as Robert DeNiro inducted the iconic high school tale into the Guy Movie Hall of Fame.

The 10 Best Emmy Award Moments

Here’s how I generally feel about awards shows: they’re exciting for the first 15 minutes and then things get sloooooow from there and I just want it to end so I can go to sleep. I was prepared to be totally bored during last night’s Emmy Awards. But the show turned out to be both adorable and entertaining. Besides the “Glee”-tastic, Jon Hamm rump-shakin’ opening number, here are my 10 favorite Emmy moments. With videos included! Keep reading »

Star Couplings: Angelina And Brad’s PDA

  • Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt showed up to the Critics Choice Awards and nuzzled the entire ceremony. There’s no real news here, just our raging envy. [Perez Hilton]
  • Nicole Kidman is expecting a baby with hubby Keith Urban. She has two other children, both adopted, with ex-husband Tom Cruise. Apparently they call her “Nicole” and call Katie Holmes “Mom”. Hopefully this new little brat knows better. [People]
  • Just in case you’ve been asleep for the last week, Britney had a crazy mega breakdown, held her kids hostage, had to be strapped down on gurney and taken to the emergency room where she was under suicide watch, and then demanded to be released so she could go on a mimosa-drinking date with that paparazzo she boned. And that was just the first 36 hours! [DListed]
