“Who do you hate more – Justin Timberlake or Leonardo DiCaprio?” – what I just asked Duana a few minutes ago that resulted in a really fun discussion about who, really, is the worst. For her it’s Leo. And the difference is Saturday Night Live. In Duana’s mind, JT’s willingness to at least try it makes him more tolerable than Leo who, as we know, refuses to put himself out there. Full Story

First a brief moment to say that, though her outfit did not fit well (and see earlier where I don’t understand why we commit crimes against breasts), I would always rather see an interesting choice that’s not quite right than a boring column. Full Story

“It came true.” Word spoken by another Best Supporting Actress a couple of years ago. But in Annie Hathaway’s case, it took a LOT longer. For Alicia Vikander? Seems like it was just 12 months, when she told W Magazine that she’d have three films in contention at the Oscars. Full Story

Rooney Mara is a Well-Dressed Oscars Suck

I love, love, love the word ‘suck’. Not like ‘that sucks’, although I do frequently employ that terminology— but like, ‘you’re being a suck’. Remember when we were kids and someone was always being a sucky baby? Now when we talk about it, we use kids’ language and say someone is ‘taking their toys and going home’, but at least there’s a bit of flounce and drama to doing that. Full Story

Rachel McAdams presented last night with Michael B Jordan. MBJ did not walk the carpet. So there are very few shots of him, which is disappointing because, hello, he’s Michael B Jordan. Anyway, after they presented all kinds of people tweeted at me about Gossip Genie’ing the two of them together because, indeed, they did look really cute together. Full Story

Ryan & Russell: Oscar red carpet skippers

Ryan Gosling didn't walk the carpet at the Golden Globes. It was predictable the moment they announced he would be presenting at the Oscars that it would be unlikely he'd walk the carpet. At this point probably not unless he's nominated. But he did look good up there, with Russell Crowe, promoting their movie The Nice Guys. Full Story

I think a few times before I’ve been not so down with Naomi’s red carpet style. I think it’s totally fair that we just don’t necessarily jive, style-wise. I bet she’s really upset about it too.  But in all seriousness, that’s cool. Something isn’t unattractive just because I don’t like it, especially if everyone else does. Full Story

The Weeknd: Purest Oscar Pitch

Remember when we didn’t know anything about The Weeknd? When he was this anonymous shadowy persona, and we didn’t have any knowledge of him or his hair or his romances, and hadn’t read any dark and twisty Rolling Stone pieces on him yet? There were just those songs, hard to come across at first, and the haunting voice? I feel like that was The Weeknd who was performing last night, or maybe the Abel—that’s how he introduces himself. Full Story

Sam Smith: Oscar gay boy sh-t!

Can we start with how that song won for Best Song? How f-cking uncomfortable too that it happened right after Gaga performed and had everyone sobbing in the aisles. It was AWKWARD in that theatre. Because, um, that was a sh-t Bond theme, wasn't it? Like there's no other way to say it! The song sucks! That was one of the most obvious moments of Academy disconnect and the influence of the old white male on the Oscars. Full Story

Charlize Theron, Oscars Princess

Not a princess dress, of course. That dress is a perfect example of what people mean when they say a piece of clothing is ‘art’. Lainey touched on it a little, but the outfits are a big deal that take a lot of effort and preparation—we can still acknowledge that, especially since they take a lot of people’s very hard work. Full Story

Matt Damon's Oscar date night

I should say "Oscar date weekend". Matt Damon had two dates all weekend: his wife, Luciana, and his best friend, Ben. On Friday there was a big WME party - Ben goes often. Three years ago I heard he was pretty drunk there and flirting hard with a tall blonde the entire time. This time he hung out with Matt and Lucy all night. Full Story
