Oscar Diction: Armie Hammer

Lainey Posted by Lainey at February 28, 2011 13:34:14 February 28, 2011 13:34:14

My colleague Ben Mulroney, the host of etalk, is pretty tall. Probably 6 ft 2. I can’t remember Ben ever interviewing someone and having to hold the mic UP to the subject. Until I watched it on the monitor during the live red carpet show yesterday as he spoke to Armie Hammer. Armie Hammer looked to be at least a couple of inches taller than Ben. Full Story

Best Recovering Alcoholic: Russell Brand

Written by Duana I know it sounds like a really strange thing to call someone, but after the weekend we’ve had, with the Charlie Sheens and the John Gallianos and all the rest of the poorly-behaved who feel entitled to spray their bullsh-t wherever they go, Russell Brand is both entertaining and a model of restraint. Full Story

Oscar Tense: Colin Firth

He looked tight last night. The most tense I’ve ever seen him. Because he knew he was going to win. And I suppose it’s a lot worse knowing you’re SUPPOSED to win and anything else would be a huge upset and wondering about the possibility of the huge upset and having to wait for several hours before finding out – that would suck. Full Story

Oscar non-Anne: Jesse Eisenberg

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

Best Undersize Dress: Penelope Cruz

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 at February 28, 2011 11:53:18 February 28, 2011 11:53:18

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 at February 28, 2011 11:19:34 February 28, 2011 11:19:34

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
