Oscar Breasts: Jennifer Hudson

I am predisposed to not like this material. I don’t like taffeta. Ever. Taffeta often comes in offensive colours. Always loud. Always really mall prom. It doesn’t scream style to me. It certainly isn’t fresh. And on Jennifer Hudson, with her new Weight Watchers body that gets shoved down our throats all the time, I feel like it was a total disservice. Full Story

Written by Duana Now look, now. If anyone other than Halle Berry had paid tribute to Lena Horne, would it mean that we were less aware of the struggles she had had and the triumphs she had made over the then-totally-biased industry in Hollywood? If I started to talk about this, I might not stop, so let me temper what I’m trying to say. Full Story

Oscar Failed Vintage: Marisa Tomei

Jessi Cruickshank reported on our etalk red carpet show that Marisa Tomei’s dress was some kind of 1950s gown that is so rare and so precious, they wouldn’t loan it to her so she had to buy it and it was tens of thousands of dollars, probably the only celebrity who had to do so last night. Full Story

Worst Hathaway Imitation: Mandy Moore

Written by Duana The first reaction everyone had to Mandy Moore tonight was that she looked severe and kind of angry. This is factual, and though the part in her hair and the weird eyebrow (that a lot of people had going) didn’t help, there was something else at hand, and it took me a minute to realize what. Full Story

Oscar Undecided: Melissa Leo

I can’t decide about Melissa Leo on Oscar night. With anything. Like, I don’t know if I like this dress. I know I don’t mind the high collar. I know I don’t mind the beading. But there’s also something decidedly low rent about it. Or that may be because the taste of her embarrassing ads is still lingering in my mouth. Full Story

Worst Oscar Host: James Franco

It was a promising start. The montage was good. Alec Baldwin was good. Morgan Freeman was good. Their Billy Crystal-esque movie insertions were good. Kirk Douglas was good! More than good! So good he should have stayed! Because goddamn as the night went on, the good disappeared, only to be replaced by a spaced out James Franco who could not seem to look at the camera (do they not teach that at film school?) and a Hathaway who overcompensated for her partner’s indifference by trying way too hard. Full Story

Have you seen the new Oscar promo with Anne Hathaway and James Franco? I rather like it. A lot. I like their expressions at the beginning when they bump fists, especially his, like all Jersey Shore grease roid douche and sh-t. The sweatbands around the wrists are killing me. And she looks so cute when she’s screaming to camera as he tackles her. Full Story

Oscar Nominations 2011

Roger Ebert offered this yesterday: "I suspect Justin Timberlake has an excellent chance for “The Social Network,” not only because he was wonderful, which he was, but because in some sense Academy voters consider themselves as the default casting directors for the Oscarcast and would like to add a hot young pop star. Full Story

Keep your mind off it…and predictions

Tomorrow morning. You know. We all get up at the ass of morning and wait for the announcement – Oscar nominations. There will be a lot of white-knuckling tonight. But not from Melissa Leo. Love her. When I talked to her on the carpet last night at the Red State premiere, she was like – it’s an honour, but just like an audition, you have to put that away, you have to know there’s more to this than that kind of recognition. Full Story
