I didn’t even recognize that was Quvenzhané Wallis at first! She’s grown up so much since “Beasts Of The Southern Wild”; she was practically a baby then. But now, in addition to “12 Years A Slave” and the “Annie” remake, the 10-year-old actress is the first-ever face of Armani Junior. Here she is modeling both… READ MORE »
Quvenzhane Wallis has scored the part to end all parts — the lead in the movie remake of the musical “Annie.” But at only 10 years old, there are laws about how often she can work, so it makes sense that her stunt/body double for the movie would be an adult, who can work as often as necessary.

Who says a 10-year-old doesn’t know how to liven up an after party? Check out Oscar nominee Quvenzhane Wallis challenging another youngster to a dance-off at a post-MTV Movie Awards party last night.

For the most part, last night’s Academy Awards were painfully unfunny — Seth MacFarlane, NEVER AGAIN — and way, way, way too long. But there were some great acceptance speeches, unplanned gaffes, and plenty of moments ripe for GIFing. Because I love you, allow me to recap everything worth recapping from last night’s Oscars, in… READ MORE »
UPDATE: The Onion has posted an apology on their Facebook page. Read it here.
Last night’s Oscars draggggggged on and on, but if you managed to stay up for the full exhausting affair, and were fooling around on Twitter at the same time, then you probably saw controversy erupt over a tweet posted to The… READ MORE »
