Hollywood’s months-long celebration of itself comes to a close this Sunday with the Academy Awards, and we’ll be tweeting and drinking through the whole thing, as per usual. Starting at 6 p.m. EST, The Frisky (@TheFrisky on Twitter) will be tweeting the red carpet arrivals along with our fellow Buzz sites Celebuzz and Socialite Life using the hashtag #OscarBuzz and all you have to do is follow along to get all of our thoughts on what the stars are wearing. But for extra fun, have our Oscars Drinking Game rules handy — Julie (@havethehabit) and I (@xoamelia) will also be tweeting and drinking throughout the whole awards show. A grand time is sure to be had by all! See you Sunday!
I don’t care how cliche it is, I am a girl that loves a good awards show. The bigger the stars (and the more of them), the better. The Oscars have all of my favorite things in one place: glitzy dresses fresh off the runway? Check. Incredible hair and makeup? Check. Acceptance speeches that run the gamut from hilarious to tear-jerking to obnoxious to secondhand embarassment-inducing? Check. A valid reason to drink to excess and yell at the TV screen that doesn’t involve sports? Check! I don’t necessarily wish I was famous (though there are some pretty undeniable perks, i.e. free everything), but I definitely like to approach Oscars night as the ideal opportunity to act like I am. This doesn’t mean I like to get all dressed up and put on loads of borrowed jewelry and have an awkward conversation with Giuliana Rancic — actually, it’s kind of the opposite. Come Sunday night, I will be doing one thing and one thing only, and that is treating myself with some full-fledged pampering, fuzzy bathrobe style. Or shall we say, celeb-style? So please, get your hair masques, face masques, everything masques at the ready. Put your best pajamas on and pop the Moët & Chandon (it’s the official champagne of the Oscars!). Here are the luxurious treatments I’ll be indulging in while I sit back and watch the 85th Academy Awards…
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…
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 Oscar noms are in, and now we’re left to twiddle our thumbs and wait to find out who won all the awards. In the meantime, we figured we could at least take a look at how the lady nominees stack up in the style department.
Feel free to take guesses on what they’ll be wearing, and who’ll come out on top, in the comments!
The nominees for the Academy Awards were announced this morning and I thought they were all sorts of WTF. While there were some awesome surprises (Quvenzhané Wallis is the youngest nominee ever for “Beasts of the Southern Wild” and there was a lot of love shown for the foreign language film “Amour”), there were many snubs that left me scratching my head. For starters, Kathryn Bigelow (“Zero Dark Thirty”), Ben Affleck (“Argo”) and Quentin Tarantino (“Django Unchained”) were all snubbed in the Best Director category, despite being considered shoe-ins. Hugh Jackman and Bradley Cooper landed Best Actor nominations but John Hawkes, who was beyond brilliant in “The Sessions,” was overlooked. At least my beloved Joaquin Phoenix was nominated for “The Master.” I’m sure he’s surly about it.
And, I mean, where were the nominations for “Magic Mike”?! I kid. Sort of. Other observations: the Academy clearly has a major boner for “Silver Linings Playbook,” “The Master” received a lot of recognition in the acting categories but won’t win anything, and no matter what, Anne Hathaway is walking away with Best Supporting Actress, as much as I wish Amy Adams’ handjob had a shot. Check out the list of nominees for the acting, directing and picture categories after the jump, and the full list of nominees at the link. [Oscars] Keep reading »
Is it just me, or was the beauty for this year’s Oscars kind of a bore? The ladies looked lovely as always, but for the life of me I couldn’t pick out a makeup look that really wowed. Maybe it’s because some of the real stunners, the young actresses who can afford to dare to stand out from the pack, skipped the ceremony entirely and made their way over to the Vanity Fair party a few hours early instead. Basically every time Elizabeth Olsen, who’s quickly becoming my favorite Olsen, leaves the house and is photographed, I subsequently covet to death whatever makeup she’s wearing — she always looks fresh-faced and pretty, never overdone. Predictably the Vanity Fair fête was no exception, but it was her appearance the night before at the Independent Spirit Awards that really stuck with me: the rose gold eyeshadow she sported is well on its way to becoming a major trend. The girls in Glamour‘s beauty department were one step ahead of me in identifying the frequency with which the gorgeously gilded shade has been worn. Let me tell you, I’ll take anything rose gold without question, but I’m really in love with it when swiped on lids. Here are the products you can use to get this celeb-approved look.
Actress Sean Young, who appeared inBlade Runner and Ace Ventura: Pet Detective, was placed under citizen’s arrest by security at Sunday night’s Governors Ball after the Oscars. She allegedly got into a fight with a security guard.
Sources told TMZ that Young allegedly got into a fight with a security guard at the ball, which is hosted by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences itself. She was put under citizen’s arrest by security until LAPD arrived to take her to the local police station. The actress was then booked for misdemeanor battery. Read more…
