The Real Reason Lupita Nyong'o Didn't Want to Pull a Jennifer Lawrence at the Oscars

Posted By Katie Roberts on June 06, 2014
Jennifer Lawrence probably isn't thrilled that her now-infamous fall at the 2013 Oscars is a cautionary tale, though she can probably forgive her former Best Supporting Actress rival, Lupita Nyong'o, for worrying about repeating that gaffe. Nyong'o, who graces the July cover of Vogue magazine, revealed in the accompanying interview that in the surreality surrounding the moment she won the statu...

Oscars Pizza Delivery Guy Gets a Jaw-Dropping Tip From Ellen (VIDEO)

Posted By Jenni Miller on March 03, 2014
Kevin Winter/Getty Images And that tip was, "Don't go into showbiz!" We'll be here all week. Be sure to try the veal! Actually, that would have been the tip if Alec Baldwin had been hosting, but luckily for Edgar Martirosyan, Ellen DeGeneres is a little more de-generous. Besides giving him the sort of pizza delivery story that would only make it into the pages of Playboy and its ilk, DeGenere...

Posted By Katie Roberts on March 03, 2014
Kevin Winter/Getty Images For whatever reason, awards show presenters often have a difficult time reading their lines off a teleprompter, but John Travolta may have just earned himself the superlative of Worst Introduction Ever thanks to his ridiculous, confusing mangling of performer Idina Menzel's name during the Oscars telecast Sunday night. Travolta was onstage to introduce Menzel, who wa...

When Leonardo DiCaprio Loses an Oscar, the Internet Gets Very Sad

Posted By Katie Roberts on March 03, 2014
Frazer Harrison/Getty Images Sure, it must be kind of a bummer to be nominated for an Oscar multiple times and walk away from the ceremony empty-handed each year. But Leonardo DiCaprio, who lost his fourth chance at an acting Oscar Sunday night -- and fifth nomination overall -- didn't seem too disappointed, probably because he's a famous movie star with tons of money who often gets to work wit...

Are the director and writer of newly-minted Best Picture winner "12 Years a Slave" feuding?

Liza Minnelli Tried Really Hard to Be in Ellen's Twitter-Crashing Oscars Selfie (PHOTO)

Posted By Katie Roberts on March 03, 2014

Why Was Liza Minnelli at the Oscars?

Posted By Drew Taylor on March 03, 2014
Jason Merritt/Getty Images While Lupita Nyong'o was last night's definitive fashion icon, with her flowing, low-cut powder-blue gown that seemed to be a part of her skin, there was another star in blue that received almost as much attention, but not for the best reasons. We are, of course, referring to Liza Minnelli, whose mere presence seemed to be a mystery to almost everyone in attendance (an...

Bill Murray Photobombs Selena Gomez at the Vanity Fair Oscar Party (PHOTO)

Posted By Jonny Black on March 03, 2014
Getty Wait... did Bill Murray just photobomb Selena Gomez? First, take some time to digest the fact that the pop starlet and the comedy legend were even in the same room together. Then, imagine Selena Gomez posing for photos when you see a much older man sneak into the picture... Don't worry, it's not some "old dude" with a thing for the young star (ahem, Jack Nicholson) -- it's just Bill ...

She said she had a plan for calmin...

Oscars 2014: Ellen DeGeneres's 10 Best Jokes, Gags, and Zingers (PHOTOS + VIDEO)

Posted By Drew Taylor on March 03, 2014
Kevin Winter/Getty Images Last year's Oscar telecast set the bar pretty low. Seth MacFarlane's turn as an emcee was a horrible miscalculation. The energy and occasional charm that be brought to his cartoons and his unfathomably popular film "Ted" seemed to curdle while on stage, and the night dragged on in a series of unfunny songs and jokes that were tired, sexist, and bigoted. So all that Elle...
