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. Sure, George played nice for two seconds on the red carpet, but once he got inside … forget it. What the heck does he have to be so pissed about? Our best guesses after the jump. Keep reading »
It’s T-minus two weeks until the Oscars, and we here in The Frisky office are already getting our Oscar pool organized—which means that you probably are, too. Luckily, the Academy is pretty predictable. And since we want you to win your co-workers’ money, we are looking at each of the major awards and dissecting some theories about who generally wins. Last week, we showed you that to win the Best Actress award, it’s best to be a card-carrying America’s Sweetheart getting her first nomination for a meaty role. To win Best Actor, it’s exactly the opposite—the Academy tends to vote on consistency in this category. In other words, the Oscar generally goes to the dude who has the most Best Actor and Best Supporting nominations under his belt already.

The nominations for the 82nd Academy Awards were announced this morning and some of the nominees include: George Clooney for best actor in “Up in the Air,” Mo’Nique for best supporting actress in “Precious,” Maggie Gyllenhaal for best supporting actress in “Crazy Heart,” Gabourey Sidibe for best actress in “Precious,” and a little movie called “Avatar” was nominated in a whole bunch of categories, tying “Hurt Locker” for a total of nine nominations. One difference in the awards this year is that 10 movies have been nominated for best picture rather than the usual five. For a full list, check out the official website of the Oscars. Keep reading »
While some women hate how facial hair chafes their chin, others find the grizzly mountain man look super sexy. I’m definitely in the latter category. Outside of soul patches (which I think are stoopid), facial hair can add character to a man’s face or cover up an otherwise weird-looking upper lip or chin. It can also make a really good-looking man even better looking. This is arguably the case with the newly bearded men of Hollywood: Jon Hamm, Brad Pitt, and George Clooney. This is why we’ve decided to take on the impossibly huge task of deciding which hunk should be shunned, shagged, or married. Keep reading »
Enough with photos in tabloid magazines of celebrity women in matching dresses with captions asking, “Who wore it better?” Do we really care which starlet-of-the-hour looks more bangin’ in the Dior cocktail dress? Or, which accessories complement the Armani gown better? No! Bring on the men, we say. With three of our favorite hotties sporting new beards, this is a “Who wears it better?” situation we actually care to ponder. So who gets your vote? Jon, Jason, or George? Keep reading »
