Worst Oscar Red: Amanda Seyfried

Lainey Posted by Lainey at February 23, 2009 06:11:23 February 23, 2009 06:11:23

You know I love her. And her hair in Mamma Mia was my hair inspiration last night. Amanda Seyfried is definitely a “next”. Most of Meryl’s girls are: Emily Blunt, Amy Adams, Anne Hathaway, Amanda Seyfriend… only Lindsay Lohan managed to f-ck it up. But Amanda, for her first Oscars, on a night of many red dresses, oh this was not good. Full Story

Oscar Ebola Victim: Mickey Rourke

Loki could not save Mickey. Oh Loki. You saw it coming, didn’t you? Last Monday in New York, Mickey Rourke stumbles into Butter and it happens to be Ebola Paris Hilton’s birthday party. Instead of leaving, he sits down and celebrates with her… and suddenly his beloved dog Loki dies. Full Story

Best Oscar Actors and a Cheese

It’s quite a group isn’t it? Can you picture Mickey sliding in there? No… Mickey is not one of them. Adrien Brody is very much one of them, even though he’s a hypocrite douche. Like, did you hear him during the presentation? While introducing Richard Jenkins, he opened with “not that I’m a fan of google”, like it was beneath him to be a famewhore. Full Story

Best Oscar Try Something New: Tina Fey

Lainey Posted by Lainey at February 23, 2009 05:24:00 February 23, 2009 05:24:00

Just wanted to point out – Seth Meyers and Ricky Gervais were part of the Oscar writing staff last night. I’m sure Tina also had something to do with the fact that Steve Martin was way funnier presenting an Academy Award than he was hosting Saturday Night Live a few weeks ago. Tina not wearing black or grey. Full Story

Worst Oscar Ming Vase: Beyonce

Lainey Posted by Lainey at February 23, 2009 05:04:45 February 23, 2009 05:04:45

She’s killing that song for me. Is she killing it for you? Suddenly At Last has become Beyonce’s signature song. Suddenly At Last is getting removed from my iPod. First though, let’s start with the carpet dress. The carpet dress was the ass. The carpet dress blinded half the bleacher section. Full Story

Oscar Slumdog!

Lainey Posted by Lainey at February 23, 2009 04:46:27 February 23, 2009 04:46:27

Those kids… you had to see those kids! In person those kids made the night. Look at them all dressed up and excited! It was bedtime for them when I was leaving the press room. Ran into the Slumdog child contingent on their way out of the Governor’s Ball. Two of the boys skipped up the escalators. Full Story

Oscar cheap tacky TV: Melissa George

Lainey Posted by Lainey at February 23, 2009 04:30:00 February 23, 2009 04:30:00

Another case of who-invited-you-and-what-is-your-name. I don’t know…apparently she’s on Grey’s Anatomy now? Yes, this is a television show. So how did Melissa George score a ticket? Oh right. Disney. ABC. Grey’s. Ugh. It was embarrassing watching her. Embarrassing looking at her dress. Full Story

Best Oscar Tilda: Tilda Swinton

Lainey Posted by Lainey at February 23, 2009 04:22:58 February 23, 2009 04:22:58

Here’s the thing – you probably hate this. But you’re not Tilda Swinton. Tilda Swinton isn’t a pretty strapless gown kind of girl. Actually, Tilda is not a girl period. Tilda is a woman. Her own woman. And she dresses for herself. And it’s not mainstream, it’s not conventional, it’s sometimes not even attractive… but it’s always, always original. Full Story

Oscar Rerun: Heidi Klum

Lainey Posted by Lainey at February 23, 2009 04:13:35 February 23, 2009 04:13:35

Why does Heidi Klum go to the Oscars? Don’t understand why she’s invited year after year. Nothing against her but there’s just no sense to it. None. And didn’t she wear almost the same thing last time? It was red, and kinda origami-ish, and if not for the hair, could you tell it apart? Not really. Full Story

Oscars 2009 Wrap-Up

Lainey Posted by Lainey at February 23, 2009 04:06:31 February 23, 2009 04:06:31

They said they would shake things up. Well, they shook up some parts, but it still ended up being too long. And, more importantly, FEELING too long. The entire middle section was Benjamin Button. So there is no way Danny Glover stayed awake. None. Hugh Jackman? If I’m honest, there were moments I was a little embarrassed for him. Full Story
