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…
I know it’s going to be a good day when there are brand new Nicholas Hoult photos on the internet, ripe for me to get pervy about! Here he is, looking all godly and stuff alongside his “Jack The Giant Slayer” costars Eleanor Tomlinson and Ewan McGregor. I have to be honest with you, though: I might have a bone to pick with my beloved. His recent ex Jennifer Lawrence was in London over the weekend for the BAFTAs, which Nicholas also attended. We were hoping Jen was headed for a secret Hoult tryst when she arrived at Heathrow Airport incognito, but instead she was photographed crying as she left a restaurant alone Friday night. You see, I just cannot get behind anyone making lovely Jennifer Lawrence cry for any reason, and if Nicholas here had something to do with it, well… I might just have to hunt him down. God, that would be awful, wouldn’t it? Just terrible. Truly. He’s so ugly.
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]
The BAFTAs are like the British version of the Academy Awards, which is to say, they’re the more refined and with better accents. Here’s what they wore to the festivities. Tell us what you like — and loathe — in the comments!
Jennifer Lawrence was spotted at Heathrow Airport yesterday, in an very incognito trench coat, brimmed hat and sunglasses. Maybe she’s doing promotion for “Silver Linings Playbook,” but I prefer to think she’s in London for a secret rendezvous with zombie ex-boyfriend (and native Brit) Nicholas Hoult. Normally, I would be super annoyed with another lady landing my celebrity crush, but J.Law just seems super cool and down to earth, and me, Anonymous Regular Citizen Person, feels strangely invested in her happiness. Maybe I’m a stalker? In any case, my love for Lawrence is not blind — I’m not crazy about this stupid purple fedora. But what do you think?
Whoever is in charge of Jennifer Lawrence’s skin color (is it you?) went a little/a lot spray tan-happy on the poor girl before the Academy Awards Nominations Luncheon, which left the Jen we know and love looking less like her peachy self and more like the Oscar statuette we hope she wins. She looks terribly uncomfortable, almost as if she’s trying to tell us, “You and I both know that I am not actually this brown.” And then! Jen showed up later in the evening at the Hollywood Reporter Nominees’ Night (on the right), looking wayyyy closer to her natural shade. I am left with the impression that she ran home after the first event and scrubbed herself silly to fade the color, to which I say: been there, done that. You never know what you’re gonna get with those spray tans, and there is a painstakingly fine line between bronzed and luminous and old baseball glove.
“I just went to the doctor today, I got a chest X-ray of my lungs and discovered that my breasts are uneven … I was like standing there with these doctors and they’re like looking at my lungs and I just couldn’t—it felt like an elephant in the room—and I was like, ‘Are my breasts uneven?’ And they were just kind of, like, stifled and uncomfortable, obviously. So I kept thinking, ‘Well, I’m gonna dig myself out of this hole by bringing it up again’ … So he was like, ‘All right, our radiologist will get back to you about your lungs.’ And I was like, ‘And my breasts.’”
– Jennifer Lawrence laments her uneven boobs on “Jimmy Kimmel Live.” My unprofessional opinion is that her boobs are going to be just fine. Nothing an Oscar can’t fix. [ONTD]

Nicholas Hoult’s screen career began when he played the wee moppet that Hugh Grant befriends in “About A Boy.” We filed him away in our Adorable Children File and forgot about him. And then several years later, Hoult reappeared, as scummy-sexy Tony in the UK version of “Skins” and we were smitten with his Legally-Actually-An-Adult Hotness (he’s 23!). Since then, he’s appeared in films like “A Single Man” and “X-Men: First Class,” and snagged a hot girlfriend you may have heard of … Jennifer Lawrence (though the pair just recently split up).

Jennifer Lawrence played a bratty teenager named Lisa in a commercial for the reality series “My Super Sweet 16,” which she made when she was 14.
“I want to thank MTV. I’ll explain that. I earned my SAG card when I was 14, I did an MTV promo for ‘My Super Sweet 16.’ And I remember getting it in the mail and it being the best day in my entire life, because it officially made me a professional actor,” the 22-year-old actress said while accepting her SAG Award on Sunday.
Jennifer is featured in two different ads where things go terribly wrong for the birthday girl. Check them out here!
When I sat down to watch “Silver Linings Playbook,” I had high hopes. Friends whose opinions I respect loved the film and praise for her performance has made Jennifer Lawrence a front-runner for Best Actress in this year’s Oscar race. I’ve loved Lawrence since “Winter’s Bone” and I’m constantly amazed by her ability to play incredibly tough, independent, strong-willed protagonists.
But “Silver Linings Playbook” left me with an uneasy feeling, and it wasn’t because of the film’s flawed grasp of mental illness or its contrived and formulaic plot. It had everything to do with the treatment of Lawrence’s character. My first reaction to the film when it ended was: “What was with all the slut shaming?” [Spoilers after the jump!] Keep reading »
