Let’s head over to the Vanity Fair Oscar party for a moment and check in on My Obsession. That jacket. That print. All of it together. THEM! As you know, Sam Taylor-Johnson directed Fifty Shades Of Grey. Fifty Shades Of Grey was nominated for an Oscar. For Best Song. Earned It, by The Weeknd. Full Story

Do you think that Louis CK asked to present the award for best documentary short? Or do you think he was assigned? I’m willing to bet the latter, and that he wandered around for days trying to find the right ‘in’ to the category. Or maybe it came to him right away. Because Louis CK lives in this weird space, where he has to be everyman. Full Story

It’s not such a surprise to have someone wear a gold column dress. Someone wears one every couple of awards shows—at the Golden Globes or SAG awards as well as the Oscars—and they have their place. They’re beautiful and they’re of course evocative of the statues that we’re spending the whole night obsessing over. Full Story

Mark Rylance is a well-respected actor and he was the only part of Bridge Of Spies that was remotely interesting because let’s face it, the film was boring and the only reason why it even got invited was SPIELBERG. Without taking anything away from Mark’s talent though, he won because the Academy didn’t want Sylvester Stallone to win. Full Story

Why yes, I did like that dress. I’m not sure it would work if she weren’t pregnant, and I guess it’s also pretty literal in the sense that yeah, she’s in bloom. But if the worst criticism of an outfit is that it’s literal, well, then by all accounts she’s doing well. Full Story

I don’t want to talk about this. But where Olivia Munn is concerned, everyone is talking about this. SHE is talking about this. About her face. And why it looks different. Apparently people started commenting about her looking different and then she went on Instagram and listed four reasons why she’s looking different. Full Story

You know when you’re out with your friends and you’re having a great time and someone takes a picture and you lean in, beaming, and in your head the soundtrack is one of the songs from tonight that you forgot you loved (hands up if your Oscar party broke into Man in Motion like we did), and you think ‘we’re the best group of friends ever!’ …And then when you see the picture you’re like “WHO REPLACED ME WITH A BUILDING?” This is what happened to Kate Winslet tonight. Full Story

Sacha Baron Cohen arrived in LA the other day in Brothers Grimsby costume. So a lot of people assumed he’d be at the Oscars in Brothers Grimsby costume. And that it’d turn into something ridiculous like the time he went to the Oscars as The Dictator and ashed all over Ryan Seacrest. Full Story

I love riding the elevators in the hotel on Oscar day. They are very fast and constantly packed and never boring. You see the early risers who want to work out, and then later the influx of Makeup and Hair artists troop in, and you can tell what their clients are like by how rigid and set their faces are. Full Story

Fine. I’ll be the dick doesn’t like what the pregnant celebrity is wearing. I just don’t think women who are pregnant need to dress like the babies they’re growing. It’s not just the colour either. It’s the embellishment. ON THE STRAPS. And the bust line cut straight across. Full Story

Where was Phyllis? I loved Inside Out AND felt that it abused my trust, which is the way that I think you’re supposed to feel about Inside Out (also please note that someone pointed out that Bing Bong was missing from the In Memoriam montage, so HAVE FUN SOBBING ALL DAY), but one of the things that killed me was how shockingly perfect Phyllis Smith was as Sadness. Full Story
