Still not sure who you think is going to win Best Picture tonight? Why not try a strictly mathematical approach. That is, our buddy Jesse David Fox’s vigorously researched Oscar Movie Pie Charts, which detail all the uh, details of each Best Picture nominee. For instance, did you know that “Argo” is basically 25 percent about “that week in college you pretended to be from Canada,” and another five percent “the child-hugging end of ‘Mrs. Doubtfire’”? I’m going to go ahead and pretty much guarantee you had no idea that’s what “Argo” was about. For that and more incredible filmic revelations, please enjoy a few more pie charts after the jump. For the whole slate, click the link. And don’t forget to follow @TheFrisky@xoamelia@havethehabit and the hashtag #OscarBuzz for all livetweeting action tonight starting at 6 p.m. [NYMag.com]

What We Missed: Talkin’ Anne Hathaway, Plan B & Music Nostalgia! Plus, A Special Guest!

Oh, And Lucca Show Off Her Humping Skills!

Our special guest* in this week’s episode is our friend Andy Scott from Celebuzz, who dropped by our office (down the hall from his) to talk about his recent revelation that he’s not so fond of Anne Hathaway. Then he stuck around to listen to us prattle on about the importance of having access to Plan B, and get nostalgic about the music of our youths. Check out the episode above and share your thoughts — do you dislike Anne Hathaway? have you ever taken Plan B? do you frown upon the music of today? — in the comments!

* Well, there are two special guests if you include Lucca, who wanted to show you guys her humping skills before we started the show. (To answer your questions before you ask: 1) she only humps soft toys, 2) yes, I’m sure she’s a girl, and 3) yes, I totally encourage it because I don’t want to shame her for expressing her sexuality/need to dominate.)

10 People Who Deserve To Win An Oscar On Sunday — But They Weren’t Nominated

The Oscars are this Sunday, which means it’s time for snotty people who think they know better — i.e. moi – to complain about who should win but can’t because the Academy was stupid to nominate them. Here are 10 people who were completely screwed out of an Oscar nod this year, which blows because if I had my way, they would all win too. (Yeah, some of them overlap in categories, but in a world where I have a say in such things, there are tons of awards to go around.) Think I missed someone? Share who you wish was nominated in the comments!

Feel Like A Star On Oscar Night With These 9 Luxurious Treatments

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…

Oscar Night 2013: Dressing The Nominees

2013 Oscar Noms
Here are this year's Academy Award nominees! Read More »

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…
