Look at the picture below. If it looks familiar, it’s because it was used yesterday in the open. There’s Steve McQueen jumping in joy at the front.  Now look all the way to the back... yeah.   See that guy back there, giving kind of a laconic peace sign? That’s the screenwriter,   John Ridley. Full Story

It’s been a drought for over a year. So this weekend they made up for it. I don’t want to follow the chronological timeline for the Spirit Awards and then the Oscars. Let’s start with what happened on Sunday when they arrived on the carpet. As always, he insisted on getting out and opening the car door for her, declining the offer from the Academy staff who were waiting to greet celebrities. Full Story

Before you start yelling, please click here to remember. Remember what Charlize Theron wore to the Oscars last year when she was named Best Dressed on this blog. I want you to remember this for comparison. Because when we consider the Worst Dressed at the Oscars, it’s always about positioning and potential. Full Story

This is gonna hurt me more than it hurts you. Because I love Anna Kendrick, and she is already awesome and poised on the tip of so much more: Pitch Perfect 2. Boom. Into The Woods. Boom. The Last Five Years – it’s going to be huge. There is every reason to believe Anna Kendrick is going to be a serious contender in at least the musical if not acting categories next year – so she has 364 days to get it going. Full Story

I know that’s saying a lot, especially given Lupita Nyong’o’s acceptance and how oft-repeated that phrase is going to be. But the speech was fresh and original from the second sentence: “You’re too old to be standing” and proceeds from there. She says the honour is exacerbated given that it comes from Daniel Day Lewis, then humbly admits that the award is subjective. Full Story

Like I said at the top of the blog today – no dress punched me in the face with the real and true “best” at this year’s Oscars. Everything felt so … safe. So… subdued. Maybe it was the weather. Maybe it was a general lack of imagination. I mean, Amy Adams and Sandra Bullock were practically wearing the same thing. Full Story

Here we go. Is this the one that’s gonna be a fight?  This was my favourite dress of all of them last night. It felt new and different and fresh. It felt like it was trying something. It’s a really neat and forward-looking dress, and if it’s a little bit extra, well, that’s what the Oscars are FOR: Extra. Full Story

During out etalk Ultimate Oscars Guide, I posited that Michael B Jordan should have been nominated for Best Actor for his work in Fruitvale. You remember that scene when Oscar’s in the grocery store and he pretty much assaults his ex-manager to get his job back? Right after charming the girl into buying the right fish and calling his moms about crab on her birthday? That’s real to me. Full Story

So here we are. Jared Leto won, and he is my Best Man.   My 15-year-old self is looking at me askance. See, I was as big a fan of My So-Called Life as anyone, but Jordan Catalano did not make me squee. He scared me. He seemed angry and sad. It wasn’t like I was into Brian Krakow, but for years, Leto was a shorthand for most girls, but not for me. Full Story

Now that he’s actually a proper Oscar winner – what’s up Sarah Nostradamus! – you think people could properly pronounce Matthew McConaughey’s name? It’s not Mick-con-ah-KAY. It’s not Mick-con-ah-HEE. It’s Mick-con-ah-HAY. Anyway, that was a good kiss when his name was called. Full Story

I put a question mark at the end here because, well, as an Anne Hathaway apologist, it's kind of become a habit, a habit to keep asking -- if she did it differently would she still find a way to annoy you? But what a difference in a year, non? Last year the smile was obsequious and grateful. Full Story

Let’s review the facts about Sandra Bullock. She’s absolute box office gold. She’s kind of fun and funny and, even more than my beloved Julia, she’s one of the boys about the whole "we’re chill about the fact that we’re super rich making movies" thing, and everyone loves her. Full Story

Is this, like, three years in a row now that Channing Tatum has presented at the Oscars? I remember him being paired with Jennifer Aniston. Then last year he danced with Charlize Theron. This time he graduated to a solo appearance. But you already know that Tatum is a power player in Hollywood now. Full Story
