28 Oscar-Worthy Gowns That Walked The Runway At Paris Couture Week

With the Academy Awards just around the corner, many of the female celebs who will be attending this year’s ceremony — Jennifer Lawrence, Lupita N’yongo, Cate Blanchett, Amy Adams, etc. — will be looking to the runways this week in Paris, where the Spring 2014 Couture shows are in full swing, for some little ol’ thing to wear. Here are 28 gloriously gorgeous gowns from designers like Christian Dior, Armani Prive, Atelier Versace and Giambattista Valli, that we can imagine catching their eyes.

Female Oscar Nominees In 2014 Remains Dismally Low Yet Again

  • Zero female directors, zero cinematographers, zero female editors, and only two screenwriters. A grand total of seven categories don’t even have one woman nominated! That’s the female nominees at the Academy Awards in 2014. Yes, I said 2014. [Womens Media Center]
  • Amelia had a good take on Jezebel’s recent Lena Dunham/Vogue untouched images stunt and so did Michelle Dean at Flavorwire, who wishes we would stop talking about how creative women look entirely. [Flavorwire]
  • Rolling Stone has not written about abortion rights in a long time, so it’s good this article by esteemed journalist Janet Reitman is a meaty one. [Rolling Stone]
  • On economics, obesity and why fat people might be fat and sick because our culture treats them like garbage. [xoJane] Keep reading »

Here Are The Nominees For The 2014 Academy Awards!

Here Are The Nominees For The 2014 Academy Awards!

This morning, the nominees for the 2014 Academy Awards were announced. For the most part, the nominees were expected, and there were few noticeable snubs — though I am still steaming that James Franco in “Spring Breakers” has been all but overlooked this awards season. Check out the full list of nominees after the jump! (And, because I HAVE AN OPINION, DAMMIT, my picks for who I think should win in the top categories are in bold.) Keep reading »

“I was at the Oscars, waiting to hear
 if my name was called, and I kept thinking, Cakewalk, cakewalk, cakewalk. I thought, Why is ‘cakewalk’ stuck in my head? And then, as I started to walk up the stairs and the fabric from my dress tucked under my feet, I realized my stylist had told me, ‘Kick, walk, kick, walk.’ You are supposed to kick the dress out while you walk, and I totally forgot because I was thinking about cake! And that’s why I fell.”

Jennifer Lawrence has a typically Jennifer Lawrence explanation (i.e. food-related) for her stumble at last year’s Academy Awards. As I’m sure you recall, when J. Law started up the stairs to accept her award for Best Actress (in “Silver Linings Playbook”), she tripped on the hem of her voluminous Dior gown. Given her very vocal enthusiasm for food, I guess we shouldn’t be surprised that dessert was front of mind on the biggest night of her career. [W Magazine]

  • Seth MacFarlane’s “We Saw Your Boobs” song was a fail in countless ways. But especially because many of the pairs of boobs he referenced were “seen” in rape scenes. [Newser]
  • And on that note, MacFarlane has promised never to host the Oscars again. A promise I plan to hold him to. [Just Jared]

  • Speaking of the Oscars, here are the best reaction shocks from the night. [Next Movie]
  • And here are the seven geekiest moments. I know I’m not the only one who noticed that they played the wrong “Star Trek” music when Chris Pine and Zoe Saldana came on stage. That was the “Star Trek: The Next Generation” theme, not “Star Trek: The Original Series.” I realize that the music also appeared in “Star Trek: The Motion Picture,” but the “Star Trek” reboot takes place before that so… <END RANT> [The Mary Sue] Keep reading »

…And Now Here’s Every Other Star Who Attended Vanity Fair’s Oscar Party

I’m gonna give it to your straight: if you didn’t get invited to Vanity Fair‘s infamous Oscar party, you’re probably a sad, pathetic commoner like me. Practically everyone in Hollywood was there, though I chose to only feature those who didn’t attend the awards or who changed into a pretty new frock for the party. And by the way, as much as we loved so many of the dresses on the Oscar red carpet, the dresses at Vanity Fair party put those to shame. Ah-mazing.

Seth MacFarlane’s Most Offensive Oscar Jokes

Academy bosses must have known Seth MacFarlane would come to the Oscars armed with a few bad-taste jokes—and the “Family Guy” creator did not disappoint. Some of the rookie host’s more controversial moments, as per Entertainment Weekly and the Huffington Post:

  • “Django Unchained” ”is the story of a man fighting to get back his woman, who’s been subjected to unthinkable violence—or as Chris Brown and Rihanna call it, ‘a date movie,’” MacFarlane said. Boos were heard when he added, “A lot of controversies over the use of the n-word in the film. I’m told apparently the screenplay is loosely based on Mel Gibson’s voicemails.” Read more…

"I'll be waiting!"

Yup, this is just about how I’d imagine such an encounter would go. Oscar winner Jennifer Lawrence was doing an interview with ABC last night when the vaguely lecherous (but in a cute-ish way?) Jack Nicholson interrupted to compliment her on her performance in “Silver Linings Playbook.” Jennifer is naturally a bit starstruck at having Jack introduce himself to her, but that didn’t stop her from remarking, “Do I look like your new girlfriend?” Oh yeah, he’ll be waiting. PRICELESS.
