Win Vs. Fail: The Tony Awards

Tonyaward  So the 2010 Tonys are come and gone, and there were SERIOUS Win/Fail moments. Let's go through the show and see what brought the noise, and what just brought the funk. (That was a terrible joke, I apologize.)

Les Grossman and The MTV Movie Awards

Les-Grossman Remember Les Grossman?  The best part of Tropic Thunder?  He's hawking the MTV Movie Awards.  Brilliantly, I might add.

I See Promises, Promises and Decide the Newsweek Writer is an Idiot

Sean_Hayes Last week newspapers, television, and pop culture at large was all up in arms over Ramin Setoodeh's opinion that openly gay Sean Hayes should not be playing a straight man in the new Broadway musical Promises, Promises. I saw the show this weekend. He's wrong.

Sigourney Weaver, My Breasts And I Have A Bone To Pick With You

Sigourney-weaver  Copy this one down for the WTF files. Sigourney Weaver has not only betrayed the sisterhood of women in film, who have been sorely underrepresented since the medium was invented, but has lauded and sung the praises of one Mr. James "I'm A Douche" Cameron IN PLACE OF standing up for her fellow woman. I cannot believe I am even reporting this.

Oscar Nominated Film "French Roast" *crickets*

French-roastYeah, yeah, so everyone's arguing about what won this year's Best Picture Oscar and it's just "'Avatar' was robbed" and "'Hurt Locker' rules" all over the place. Personally, I'm more upset that "French Roast" was beat out by "Logorama." 

Hey, where's everybody going?

Best... What? Five Dubious Best Picture Winners of Years Past

Shakespeare_in_LoveIn the wake of this week's massively fun MamaPop thread throwdown of this week's massively unfun Academy Awards ceremony, we find ourselves looking at the awards that were... uh... awarded, and wondering if the passage of time and evolution of perspective will justify the choices that were made — or leave us pondering the time-honored question: what the hell were they thinking? As we know, the Academy is fully capable of delivering some lame-ass awards... and while we're making no accusations as such of The Hurt Locker (mostly because I haven't actually seen it yet), let's hope that five or ten years from now we're not wincing when we mention it in the same breath with the following:

Ryan O'Neal Weighs In On Farrah's Oscar Dis

Farrah-fawcett2009 was the year of death, it seems, so I suppose someone was bound to be left out of the annual "Here's Who Died" montage. That said, it seems a glaring oversight that the late Farrah Fawcett was not among the honored dead. Ryan O'Neal seems pretty confused about it, too.

Meet the Woman Who Kanye'd the Oscars

Elinor-burkett-oscars There was precisely one moment of genuine drama during last night's Oscars -- and I know, because I watched the whole thing, down to the bitter overlong end, going down with the ship much like Avatar's hope of avoiding the James Cameron backlash -- and that was during the acceptance speech for (of all things) Best Documentary Short Film winner Music by Prudence. It was weird! And awkward! And awesome!

Rihanna at the Echo Awards

Rihanna-2010-echo-awards_thumbnailSome days celebrity fashion makes me very weary. This is one of those days. The Echo Awards in Berlin happened and, unfortunately, so did this outfit:

Keanu Reeves Is Not A Good Actor And I Can't Stop Watching His Movies

Kea1keanurnu Reeves will be one of many stars presenting on Oscar night. I'm not sure why. My sister has a theory that he sold his soul to the devil and in return, claimed all the roles that Brendan Fraser was supposed to have. I find that a bit far fetched. I'm not sure I believe all this devil deal-making stuff, but I'd bet you ten dollars he's a Jedi Knight.

BRIT-Awards-Lady-Gaga-awards Last night at the BRIT Awards, Lady Gaga decided to moon all of us for a really long time.
