Lainey Posted by Lainey

She’s a two time Oscar winner, and you already know my thoughts on that. And she won both awards playing androgynous characters. And she most recently played Amelia Earhart. And now all of a sudden she shows up at the Vanity Fair party pretty much forcing her tits down our throats. What’s up Hilary Swank? You trying to tell us something? Many of you have emailed for commentary on her appearance. Full Story

RDJ, Oscars, Iron Man 2

Yesterday’s RDJ Oscar post was mostly re: his presenting duties with Tina Fey. Forgot to mention how it was with Robert Downey Jr and his wife Susan on the carpet. They are ADORABLE. He’s totally all over her, he can’t stop touching her, and talking to her, or to himself, and they laugh a lot together, and he’s so obviously delighted by her, and it’s not gross or tacky or inappropriate, just really sweet and genuine and fun. Full Story

Oscar Overtry: Lea Michele

Lainey Posted by Lainey

Post By Duana IMDB says Lea Michele's birthday is August 29, 1986. I have a friend who shares this exact birthday, and based on hangouts with her, that means getting settled into 23, not leaving anytime soon. 24 is awhile away. When you're 23-not-24, the point of fashion is fun or ridiculous or 'I can't believe I get to wear this'. Full Story

Worst in Show: George & the Italian Queen

Let’s start with Ely. Elisabetta Canalis made it to the Super Bowl. She’s been workin’ it for months. Months. So you’d think, you’d think she’d bring it home hard, non? Um. Non. Totally predictable that she wore red. She didn’t bother washing her hair. And it’s a sateen disaster. Full Story

Best in Show: Sandra Bullock

Lainey Posted by Lainey

Post By Duana There are three reasons that guys I know love Sandra Bullock. 1) If you ran your hands through her hair she wouldn't scream "Don't, I just did it!" 2) Get the impression she's not going to be an uptight "lights out before we get naked" kind of girl. 3) So endlessly relaxed when she's being interviewed on these carpets - even tonight when she's poised to win and is trying really hard to pretend like she hasn't heard all the rumours that call her a lock - she is so easy and fun and f-cking real that she manages to not only have a good interview with a guy who got this job out of absolutely nowhere (seriously, who was that EW guy in the post-red carpet pre-show show?) but also create a catchphrase. Full Story

Oscar Good Dress, Bad Dress: Maggie & Charlize

March 8, 2010 11:33:03 Posted at March 8, 2010 11:33:03
Lainey Posted by Lainey

A lot of people call Maggie Gyllenhaal ugly because she doesn’t look like Reese Witherspoon. Having met Maggie at the Spirit Awards on Friday, I can tell you her sex appeal is through the roof. It’s the way she holds herself. And the slight condescension when she speaks to you. She’s tall, so she looks down on most people, literally and figuratively, and you know I like bitches, and oh Maggie, she can be a bitch, and so of course I’m properly in love with her. Full Story

Best Imaginary New Couple: Rachel & Jake

Lainey Posted by Lainey

Post By Duana & Lainey So tonight Lara says "Everything is right in the world when Rachel McAdams is around" which is so true. But the other half of it is that I just want everything to be OK for Rachel. She's a hometown girl, and I don't think anyone worried about her until post-Gosling. Full Story

Oscar Side-Lean + Awkward: Taylor Lautner/KStew

March 8, 2010 11:11:35 Posted at March 8, 2010 11:11:35
Lainey Posted by Lainey

Oscar, he stands straight up. He stands straight up all over the carpet. So when someone’s workin’ a side lean, well, it’s even more obvious than usual. I guess if you have to side lean then, you better bring it hard and extra to the Academy Awards. And Taylor Lautner definitely delivered on that. Full Story

Oscar Bitchface: Diane Kruger

March 8, 2010 10:58:41 Posted at March 8, 2010 10:58:41
Lainey Posted by Lainey

She was sitting with Quentin Tarantino. And they shared bitchfaces as Basterds continued to lose. The amazing part is that the camera kept cutting away to them for almost every category. And Diane looked almost more choked than he did. Indeed, she’s been the most visible cast member for this movie. Full Story

Best Oscar black: Carey Mulligan

Lainey Posted by Lainey

It was Prada and it was perfect. And the styling, the earrings, the clutch, her hair, it was perfect. Truth: am not feeling the shoes. The dress was so ornate, something simpler on the bottom seemed more appropriate. Having said that, they’re not totally objectionable upon closer inspection. And the thing about Carey, as Duana noted earlier, is that she was genuinely thrilled to be there. Full Story

Oscar Entitlement: Miley Cyrus

March 8, 2010 10:27:19 Posted at March 8, 2010 10:27:19
Lainey Posted by Lainey

It’s the lack of humility that we’ve addressed so many times before. And on grand occasions like this it’s even more pronounced. They’ve raised her with such an alarming sense of entitlement. And of course, in this town, that sense of entitlement is oftentimes unearned. In front of a room full of people she should be aspiring to BE, she’s already fronting like she IS. Full Story

Worst Hair: Zac Efron

March 8, 2010 10:03:14 Posted at March 8, 2010 10:03:14
Lainey Posted by Lainey

Did you see it from the back? There was a piece sticking up. And every woman on the carpet except for his handler wanted to smack him there and flatten that sh-t out. This is the problem with Zac Efron. The vanity. On the one hand he’s sweet and obliging and eager on the carpet. You know this is a kid who wants to work hard, is willing to walk that line without turning into a complete robot (oh hi Taylor Lautner), and who is smart enough to take good advice from good people. Full Story

Best Face in spite of Bad Dress: Penelope Cruz

March 8, 2010 09:19:17 Posted at March 8, 2010 09:19:17
Lainey Posted by Lainey

Post by Duana I can accept that Penelope Cruz' dress is not great. And that she sticks to silhouettes that are saaaafe. She has a crazy body, but you'll never see her doing a Gyllenhaal. That's fine. Not everyone is to be loved for their avant-garde-ness or excellent choice in stylists. Full Story

Best White: Meryl Streep

Lainey Posted by Lainey

Ms Streep killed it in a Balenciaga at the SAGs. Someone must be working with a stylist now? And the stylist delivered again for the Oscars. Meryl Streep in white – perfection. The hair – perfection. Her face – perfection. And virtually untouched. As you know however, when it comes to Meryl, it doesn’t matter what she wears. Full Story
