Jared Leto Has Liza Minnelli’s Vote For Best Supporting Actor And That’s Really All That Matters

Jared Leto Has Liza Minnelli's Vote For Best Supporting Actor And That's Really All That Matters

“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 »

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 »

Jennifer Lawrence Blames Cake For Her Fall At The Oscars

“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]
