Dear Gossips,

So… remember in the weeks leading up to the Oscars we kept talking about how this was the tightest race in years, across several major categories? Well, it happened in the most unexpected f-cking way. And yes, of course, we will get to the Best Picture clusterf-ck, of course we will.  Read Full Intro

Most people seem to have a problem with Halle Berry's hair. I like her hair. I like big hair. Red carpet hair is so often so boring, so the same. And there's rarely any volume. So Halle's hair, to me, is way better than whatever it is that Alicia Vikander Full Story

It’s hard to remember now, but back in the day, before Hey Girl and then the intense desire to not be Hey Girl, Ryan Gosling kind of sometimes had a sense of humour. An offbeat one for sure, and it didn’t always come out to play, but it was there. Full Story

Casey Affleck Best Actor over Denzel Washington. Or do you prefer Jezebel's headline "F-cking Creep Wins Oscar"? For the last 13 years, the actor who wins the SAG goes on to win the Oscar. Denzel took the SAG. And Casey broke the trend, killed the streak. Full Story

Good sweet LORD, Taraji P. Henson, you looked like something else last night. The dress and the hair and the sleepy-smoky eye makeup. Obviously she’s fantastic looking and has had other great looks this awards season, but this one, even though it wasn’t the most revealing or creative or whatever, was drop dead stunning-sexy. Full Story

Every year, I watch the Oscars with my friend Liz. Every year, she makes fun of me for getting too emotional. This year, she decided to keep a running tally of how many times I cried. The first tears shed were for Mahershala Ali Full Story

Hi you! I don’t have to tell you this, but you’re getting pretty popular. People who didn’t know you last year call you ‘Lin’ now. I’m pretty sure your mom charmed everyone so much she’s about to get movie offers. Full Story

Sorry about the not-very-creative title but there really is no way to say it. Dev Patel was the cutest last night. No, Lainey, Sunny Pawar was the cutest. Sunny was cute but one-dimensionally, like cute little kid cute. Full Story

Ava Duvernay did not win her first Oscar last night. Her documentary 13th lost to Ezra Edelman’s 6-hour “film” OJ: Made in America. I loved both docs but considering Edelman’s OJ was more of a docu-miniseries that maybe should have won some Emmys instead of an Oscar, I was pulling for Duvernay. Full Story
