Topping the Worst Dressed is almost an art. It’s too easy to name Jessica Biel the worst dressed. You expect it. What’s the challenge? But Reese Witherspoon… You don’t expect it from Reese Witherspoon. You don’t go into the Oscars thinking Reese Witherspoon will suck it the hardest with all she has to choose from. Full Story

Oscar Best Dressed: Marion Cotillard

Two for two. It was hers last year when she was named the Queen. It’s also hers this year as she took an appropriate step back but still killed it anyway. Like SJP, Marion chose Christian Dior. Unlike SJP, she totally made it work. It’s not a dress for everyone. The tiers, the tulle, the belt…Sarah Jessica Parker was completely overwhelmed, like an eager beaver who wants it too badly. Full Story

Granny Freeze Nicole Kidman was freshly frozen for the Oscars and presented alongside The Women to Kate Winslet. I do love how they held hands and welcomed her to the community. And though I rag on her often, Gran is one of the few who can almost always pull off feathers. Her dress was magnificent. Especially from the back. Full Story

Oscar napkin or towel?

I say napkin. Like a napkin tucked in during a meal. But some of you are saying towel, a towel hanging on a bar in your bathroom. Whatever the case… It’s balls! And it’s f-cking amazing! When we saw this on the pool feed, I almost twisted my ankle jumping up and down with excitement on my 6 inches. Full Story

While they may have lost the latest battle in an interminable war, the Brange last night did not give ground. Because when they arrived, as you’d expect, the place went batsh-ts. He, as usual, was the most handsome son of a bitch in town. She… was a little waxy. But with an elegance last night that was missing from the SAGs and the rest. Full Story

Oscar True Love Declaration: Jen & John

They truly are a match made in famewhore heaven. I love them. I really, really truly love them. If you live for gossip, how can you not? She spends all her days plotting against the Brange, he spends all of his days writing and filming press releases to promote his deep thoughts, the coming together of Jennifer Aniston and John Mayer makes so much sense on so many levels. Full Story

Oscar Snub: Sean Penn

You've been emailing about this today: Sean Penn having no time for his wife Robin Wright despite the fact that she seemed overcome by his win. At one point the Academy featured a really sweet camera angle of him in profile with her face in the background...only he seemed like he could care less. Full Story

So now she has one. How 'bout that whistle from her dad? She was asked in the press room about the criticism she's received from stoic Brits about the emotion she's gushed throughout the course of the season. Her response? I don't give a sh-t. If they can't be happy for one of their own then f-ck 'em. Full Story

Oscar Inseparable: Daniel & Satsuki

Word is he’s extremely uncomfortable at these events. Which is why he seems to cling to her for support. It’s very sweet. Not like a limp dick or anything. Just… one person needing another. This isn’t weakness is it? F-ck me. Sleeplessness = Oprahliness. Ugh. Anyway, they made their way down the carpet, reluctant to detach even for a moment, and then as soon as they moved away from the final photo wall towards the steps leading up to the Kodak, he looked at her and they hugged. Full Story

Posh! We get it! We’ll never ever question whether or not some yo yo crack whore dieter like Lindsay Lohan is thinner than you…never again. You keep it consistent. You maintain the Skinny. You relentlessly pursue the brink point of emaciation vs survival. You are the Boniest Queen of Them All. Full Story

Oscar ratings look to be up between 6 – 10% this year over last, considered a modest success. Twihards are probably taking credit for this. Anyway, I have a flight out of LA this afternoon. And I have to check out soon. Full Story

Let’s start with eating. Squirrels should eat more because otherwise their eyes go buggy. I’m a bitch, I’ll say it for you. I’ve already said it over and over again anyway. Sometimes she looks like a squirrel. But Duana was all like – oh she’s so lovely, I like her so much, so when her boyfriend when to jail, I was swayed by my friend. Full Story

Loved it. Finally not a prom dress. Maybe not the hair but the blue and the detail and the way it moved – in person this was magnificent. In person she popped. In person it took away the headache of Beyonce and replaced it with a calm serenity. In person this girl… This girl makes you feel good about the world. Full Story
