Written by Duana Late last night, long after it was too late to do anything about it, (and really, what was I going to do? Call up Annie H on her cellphone, because of how tight we are? ) I realized there was an untapped connection at the Academy Awards last night. Full Story

Written by DuanaHow damned hot is this woman? One month post birth. About 36 days. You know what the plan was for her? ‘Let me POUR MY ASS into this dress that I probably had from before I was pregnant. I know that I will look amazing, but that’s not entirely the point. Full Story

Oscar Make-a-Couple: ScarJo & Jeremy Renner

Many of you emailed me about this. Black Widow and Hawkeye posed together on the red carpet. And they could totally make sense, right? It’s a bit of a stretch though. Scarlett’s taste runs a lot prettier than Renner. I’m not saying he’s not a sexy dude, but she likes the ones who are empirically goodlooking. Full Story

Annette Bening

Written by Duana What do you suppose Annette Bening does on Oscar night? It must be a routine now, do you think? Does she have a private rant and a cry in the car and then get over herself? Does she not talk about losing the Oscar at all, and then spirit herself off for a week in the Caribbean to think about what her prodigious skill as an actress is missing in terms of being Oscar bait? Like, maybe she makes it too easy? Me, I think Warren waits for her outside the ladies room, tells her to pick up her socks, and that they’re going to put a smile on the faces of everyone in the Governor’s ball in one hour or less, they sweep through and everyone comments on what a handsome couple they are. Full Story

Oscar Pippy and his Ex

Lainey Posted by Lainey

Duana seemed to think Pipsqueak was on his “best behaviour” while presenting last night at the Oscars. Best Behaviour where Justin Timberlake is concerned, to me at least, would be to read the f-cking monitor and get the hell on with it. Could he resist? Could he resist the urge to make the moment all about himself? Has he ever resisted? Please. Full Story

Oscar Photo Assumption: Justin vs Justin

Lainey Posted by Lainey

I just saw this photo and it made my life. Both Justin Timberlake and Justin Bieber were at the Vanity Fair party last night. So they met? Have they met before? I have no idea. And please don’t waste your time being know-it all-y about it either. The point is, in Photo Assuming this photo, Justin the Timberlake isn’t feeling it. Full Story

Oscar Baywatch: Jennifer Lawrence

I’m not saying she didn’t look good. She looked great. Gorgeous. Hot. Super sexy. But you can’t deny that’s exacly the same shade of red. And it’s cut exactly like an elongated swimsuit. She could be running in slow motion down the beach…which…well… it’s not exactly the spirit of the Oscars, you know? I’m not sure we should be invoking the names David Hasselhoff and Pamela Anderson at the Oscars, you know? Photos from Wenn.com Full Story

Sandra Bullock – Worst One Year Later

Lainey Posted by Lainey

Written by Duana Oh Sandra. Honey, what was going on tonight? Everyone knows tonight was a moment for you – that even though you were talking about what a great experience it is to win, that all you could think about was the beginning of the end that was last year. Full Story

Oscar Rude & Orange: Matthew McConaughey

Lainey Posted by Lainey

First of all, what colour is he exactly? Did you see the telecast? To borrow from Bridget Jones, next to Scarlett Johansson, McConaughey was practically purple. Was it like that on your tv too? You know, I promise you in real life, his lady is spectacular. I wasn’t into her big ass dress mainly because it looks taffeta to me, but my friend Laura, this is a Laura dress. Full Story

Best Contract Fulfilment: Celine Dion

Written by Duana This woman. This – woman. She is so fantastic. She is not here because these are all her lovely celebrity friends – she is here because she was invited, requested to do a job. You know what her job is? Her job is “to sing the ‘Smile’ song to commemorate those who have died”. Full Story

Oscar Fringe & Tail: Emma Stone

Lainey Posted by Lainey

Duana saw these photos before I did. I was heading back from the press room when my Blackberry went off with a note from her that read “you’re not going to like Emma Stone”. She was right. Very, very disappointed. This is Emma Stone at the Vanity Fair party. The fringe ages her. A lot. Full Story

Worst Biscuit Dress: Florence Welch

Lainey Posted by Lainey

Written by Duana Florence of Florence and the Machine – who’s informally Florence Welch - obviously has a lot to be happy about. Not the least of which is being invited to perform at the Academy Awards. But did she look like she was enjoying herself? Or – let me rephrase – did she look, even marginally, like she was able to raise her energy level above ‘barely conscious and watching reruns on the couch’? If you’re tired or ill or something, fake it. Full Story

Oscar Bro-down: RDJ & Jude Law

February 28, 2011 09:00:33 Posted at February 28, 2011 09:00:33
Lainey Posted by Lainey

RDJ should host the Oscars. Some of you suggested he should host with Sandra Bullock. Yeah I could get down with that. Neither of them needs it though. And they might be too big for it anyway. But sometimes it’s too short, you know? Watching him for 3 minutes, how he always hits the right note – funny, a little acerbic, but also self-deprecating – it’s much too short. Full Story
