By this time next week Matthew McConaughey might have an Oscar. That’ll likely sound strange if you still think of him as David Wooderson, the ambiguously aged keg party enthusiast from Dazed and Confused, or as a naked conga drummer. (Let the record state that MM still plays, he’s just more careful about closing his windows these days.) Over the last 18 months, McConaughey has delivered the best work of his career, earning a Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild Award and proving that it’s never too late to expect the unexpected–even from a guy whose personal mantra is just to keep on livin’.

The Coen brothers’ Inside Llewyn Davis and Tom Hanks were two of the most glaring omissions from this year’s list of Academy Award nominees. It was shocking not to hear Inside among the list of Best Picture nominees considering the plethora of praise it’s received, and disappointing to see Hanks boxed out after he delivered not one but two strong performances (in Captain Phillips and Saving Mr. Banks, respectively). Then again, there are plenty of Hollywood legends who don’t have a tiny gold man engraved with their name despite owning box office records or topping critics’ lists. When it comes to doling out the coveted Oscar, the Academy doesn’t always go with the popular opinion.
There’s a reason why Scandal‘s Harrison Wright (Columbus Short) stays so calm during a crisis: suspenders. The paid problem-solver has many positive traits–that smile, those lips, those arms, we could go on–and his impeccable wardrobe helps him look cool during any sticky situation Olivia Pope and Associates take on.

Nicholas Sparks has created an empire from the hopeful yet tragic loves stories you read on vacation or watch after too many bottles of wine. Like Nancy Meyers, whose films always incorporate droolworthy decor, location is key. And Sparks’ films are almost exclusively set on the coasts of North or South Carolina–a nod to his adopted home of New Bern, NC. Over the years numerous titles have been adapted from breezy beach reads into sugar-coated love stories with a male and female lead much too beautiful to be of this Earth.
Workaholics is a show about friendship and partying, so what better way to get its stars to spill their deepest secrets than a friendly game of Jenga? While assessing the skills of their fellow wizard rappers and gushing about Game of Thrones (again) during a recent stop at the VH1 offices, it was clear the faces of Comedy Central’s rowdiest series are still the best of buds. Even if Anders Holm doesn’t trust any of his pals with his newborn son nor do the guys trust Blake Anderson with his own bowel movements.
Was it nearly two years ago that Ryan Lochte swam into our hearts, wearing a grill on the Olympic podium and making a valid case for why “jeah” should be added to the dictionary?
