Oh, you little Oscar, you! In celebration of this pretty lil’ shiny figurine named O-S-C-A-R, we’re looking back at our favorite Oscars in popular culture.

So come on and sift through our collection of hilarious, accomplished and sometimes downright silly Oscars. You don’t want to miss this one. It’s Oscarrific.
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’.
Last week Stephanie Seymour, once again, pushed the boundaries of what is appropriate behavior for a mother and her sons by posing seductively with them for a Harper’s Bazaar shoot. While we’re sure their relationships are probably innocent, there’s something about the photos that’s just a little disconcerting. You know, the part where a mother is being sexualized by her sons while wearing bondage style lingerie. Then again questionable familial relations in celebrity families is nothing new.
Has the last “Von Trapp Family Singer” from The Sound of Music passed away? What is Jessica Chastain‘s Instagram handle? And SPOILER ALERT! What did Kate Mara think about “THAT SCENE” on House of Cards?
Some child stars turn out great; many of them don’t. It’s a well-known trope in show business. If you become wildly famous and successful at an early age, the chances of failure as an adult increase dramatically, probably due to that whole “formative years” thing being completely screwed up thanks to the consistently outrageous dynamics of Hollywood. Right now, we’re seeing signs of trouble from Justin Bieber, who’s been arrested for DUI, had his house raided, been at war with his neighbors, and developed an affinity for shirtlessness and marijuana.
Once upon a time in Hollywood, actresses and pop divas arrived at award shows in prim and proper dresses that covered up their décolletage. Then, came the 1990s and celebrities discovered that showing some skin could get them some serious press. Since then collars have been cut lower and cleavage has been raised higher. Starlets have dared to bare not only skin, but also their actual breasts.
Is Jennifer Lopez switching from movies to television? Is Jake Gyllenhaal hooking up with an ex-girlfriend? Did Kate Mara learn she got the part of Sue Storm in Fantastic Four on twitter?
Kendall and Kylie Jenner are taking Mexico by storm, Mila Kunis reveals how she and Ashton Kutcher keep their love life interesting, and Anchorman 2 is going back to the big screen.
Joe La Puma already has accolades and trophies and sneakers… lots of sneakers… lots of sneakers you can’t get, in fact. But offering laurels is an exercise in redundancy. Everyone already knows about his cover stories on Cudi, Bieber, A$AP, Jeremy Scott, Rozay, and Katy Perry. And how he helped turn Complex Media into a big-time digital content player. And everyone already knows, we don’t f-ck with you musically.
This past week, London held the world’s attention with a bevy of high-profile events. And with that abundance of red carpet appearances, there was no way every celeb could completely steer clear of bad stylists. So who made our list of the week’s worst dressed stars?
