I gotta say, with the exception of Whoopi Goldberg’s weird interpretation of Julia Roberts’ Golden Globes ensemble, there was not one person at last night’s Academy Awards who made a major fashion faux pas. (See all the red carpet arrival photos here!) I could not assemble a worst dressed list if I tried. Instead, I’ll just tell you which stars left me totally slack-jawed, from Kate Hudson’s drapey, capey situation and Lupita’s powder blue Cinderella moment, to Jared Leto’s red bow tie and Angelina Jolie’s, well, everything. Click on to see my favorites from the Oscars red carpet and share yours in the comments!
I just came across this photo and couldn’t not share. Lupita Nyong’o is so poised one moment and so hilarious the next. Flawless! Just date already, you two. [Photo: Getty Images]
Missed last night’s Academy Awards? No worries, I’ve got you covered. Here are the very best moments from the Oscars, including Lupita Nyong’o's intense moment with Liza Minnelli, that much-tweeted selfie, and John Travolta’s amazing inability to pronounce a Broadway star’s name. Keep reading »
WOOHOO! It’s Oscar time! I’ll be updating this gallery ALL NIGHT with photos of the celebs as they walk the red carpet. What will Lupita Nyong’o wear? Exactly how will Jared Leto’s mane of luscious ombre locks be styled? Will anyone dare to ask Cate Blanchett about Woody Allen? Keep checking back for photos! And follow Katie at @TheFrisky and me at @xoamelia for all of our Twitter commentary.
Let’s face it: sometimes the Academy Awards suck. At last year’s Oscars, we were lucky enough to have some solid entertainment in the form of Seth MacFarlane’s terrible “We Saw Your Boobs” song, Jennifer Lawrence‘s fall up the stage (which she later blamed on cake), Catherine Zeta-Jones’ “All That Jazz” dance number and Ben Affleck’s mighty redemption by winning Best Picture for “Argo.” We can only hope this year provides us with as much material for water cooler chit-chat the following morning.
Join @TheFrisky on Twitter as we live tweet throughout the red carpet pre-show and (hopefully eventful) awards. Tune in to ABC this Sunday, March 2, starting at 7 p.m. EST, to follow along and be sure to head over to Twitter for the REAL entertainment. See you then!
I’m starting to get very, very concerned that “American Hustle,” the most boring overrated movie of the year (“The Wolf of Wall Street” is the most entertaining over-rated movie of the year, by comparison), has the momentum to beat “12 Years a Slave” as the Best Picture at Sunday’s Academy Awards. I will weep if that happens. Steve McQueen’s masterpiece is not only impeccable, but it’s important – and about such serious subject matter that NYMag.com couldn’t bring themselves to poke fun at the movie in one of their annual Oscar pie charts. Check out the chart for my second favorite movie of the year, “Her,” after the jump and the rest of the pie charts at the link! (The pie chart for “American Hustle” is more interesting than the actual movie, if you ask me.) [NYMag.com] Keep reading »
The Oscars are this Sunday, and I don’t know about you, but I have been positively, absolutely salivating from the anticipation of finally finding out — no, not which film will win “Best Picture” — how Jared Leto will style his gorgeous head of cascading ombre man locks for the occasion. Having seen those strands in person, having touched them however briefly, I can confirm that his hair is as great as photos suggest. It’s glossy and has the perfect copper-y ends, but is also limp in that way that only man hair can be limp and sexy. SO ANNOYING. Basically, it’s perfect, down or up, though you know I ride hard for man buns.
Which is why I am positively verklempt to read what his ombre expert (duh, of course he has one) has planned for Academy Awards night. Given that Jared is practically a lock to take home the Best Supporting Actor trophy for his role in “Dallas Buyers Club,” the man formerly-but-forever-known-as Jordan Catalano has got to look like a winner. Chase Kusero told fashion and beauty blog Into The Gloss: Keep reading »
“There was a luncheon today for the film, and Liza Minnelli hosted it. You know what she said to me? She said, ‘I haven’t felt this way since I saw “On the Waterfront.”’ And she stood up in front of everybody and said, ‘Jared, when I was watching your performance, I felt the way that I do when a friend is going through the hardest time of their life. I felt like I knew you and that I cared for you in the way I would a dear friend.’”
–Jared Leto talks about Liza Minnelli’s response to his performance in “Dallas Buyers Club” with LA Confidential Magazine. I mean, it’s not every day that Liza Minnelli compares you to Marlon Brando circa 1954. That must count as an endorsement for him to win the Oscar, right? [LA Confidential]
I haven’t put much stock in the Academy Awards since Michael Fassbender didn’t even get nominated for “Shame.” (Yes, I’m still mad about it.) But some people live and die by the Oscars and all the behind-the-scenes jockeying for awards that goes with it. Fearless reporter Michael Musto scrounged up one of the nearly 6,000 Oscar voters and interrogated him (or her) about what to expect for the 2014 nominees. Here’s what we learned: Keep reading »
