VH1 News correspondent Janell Snowden had the enviable job of talking to Zac Efron at the Oscars Red Carpet on Sunday and she brought up our favorite Efron-related topic: his thick tresses. (Sorry if you were expecting us to say High School Musical or Vanessa Hudgens.) In our mind, Zac, who presented the award for Best Sound Editing, is single-handedly responsible for an entire generation of tween boy hairstyles and he dished on his (literally) dirty secret about caring for it — he’s not a big fan of shampooing.
Ugly Betty may be coming to an end, but America Ferrera isn’t going away. The actress was at the premiere of her new film Our Family Wedding in NYC last night, along with co-stars Regina King, Forest Whitaker, Lance Gross, Charlie Murphy and Carlos Mencia. It shouldn’t be too long before she hits the carpet again—her How To Train Your Dragon comes out later this month.

It’s heeeere! Summit Entertainment has just released a sneak peek of the official Eclipse teaser trailer to be released tomorrow morning. In just 10 seconds, they appease both Twi-hard teams, with Jacob’s bulging abs and a pillow-talkin’ Edward.
Check back early tomorrow for an extended glimpse of the third installment of The Twilight Saga.
We jest! Sort of. Sifting through our 2010 Oscars coverage, we came across this video clip of Janell Snowden, our friend from VH1 News, walking up to Mariah Carey and telling her straight up that she’s always had a thing for her hubby Nick Cannon. Mariah looks peeved at first, but then rolls with the joke. But what neither Mimi nor Janell know is that we’ve been waiting for just the right moment to unearth a clip of an on-camera flirtation between Nick and Janell that’s been buried deep within our archives.
Below is a mashup of Janell interviewing Nick at two different Sundance Film Festivals — before and after he was married. The clip involves hugs, pecks on the cheek, declarations of love, and talk about condoms and what could have been. Don’t worry Mariah, it’s clearly all in good fun! Maybe.
Precious: Based on the Novel “Push” By Sapphire
Hands up who wants to watch an overweight girl being abused by her father, being abused by her mother, and balancing raising a developmentally challenged baby in ’80s Harlem with learning to read. A fun night’s in store, right? Fortunately, this stirring adaptation of Sapphire’s bestseller is much, much more. The story of the put-upon Precious is harrowing, but not without its lighter moments. Most importantly, Gabourney Sidibe‘s amazing performance provides a revealing look at the kind of spirit required to overcome what look like insurmountable challenges. In addition, there’s also an Oscar-winning Mo’nique–stuffed into a catsuit and scraped free of makeup–playing one of the movie’s most memorable monsters. Check it out: Precious is a feel-bad movie that will actually leave you feeling like there’s some hope still left out there.
Extras: Commentary from Oscar-nominated director Lee Daniels, making of featurettes, a deleted scene, Sidibe’s audition reel, and more.

Considering it took thirty-eight years after his first nomination for Jeff Bridges to pick up an Oscar, we shouldn’t give the guy too much grief for not letting it go. The Crazy Heart star—who also won Coolest Best Actor Nominee by a landslide in our Oscar Poll Sunday—was spotted clutching his golden boy as he left Oprah’s post-Oscar show at the Kodak theatre yesterday. Maybe he should take a tip from Kate Winslet and wrap the guy up—you don’t want constant pawing to take the finish off.

Common folk eat up comparisons to their famous look-a-like, but what about celebrities themselves? Via makeup, plastic surgery, and sheer coincidence, duplicates of our beloved stars are running rampant all over Hollywood, or in Lady Gaga‘s case, gracing our currency. Here are 20 of our favorite, unrelated, doppelgangin’ celebs. [Photos: Getty Images]
Thanks to dramatic displays of decolletage, Christina Hendricks and Hilary Swank made big impressions at the Elton John AIDS Foundation and Vanity Fair after parties, respectively. Both bashes were booming with celebs, with some surprise revelers—folks like Heidi Klum, Apolo Ohno and The Jonas Brothers—hopping between the two. See shots from the shindigs below and let us know which woman looked more striking in our TheFABLife poll.
While Inglourious Basterds director Quentin Tarantino may not have taken home any hardware last night, he surely got his foot fetish fix. Toes were out by the tens on the Oscars‘ red carpet, and there was something for all tastes. Burgandy, nude, lavender, and pink piggies were on the prowl. While you’re scrutinizing pedicures, don’t forget to take note of the actresses’ sky-high fabulous heels - Zoe Saldana‘s violet t-straps were our fave. Take a look at 10 actresses with excellent sub-ankle style. [Photos: Getty Images]

What’s an award show without silly trivia the morning after? Here are some obscure tidbits about last night’s Oscar winners. And remember, everyone nominated is a winner.
- Having finally snagged an Oscar after forty years in the industry, Jeff Bridges can now focus on getting a Grammy. The Crazy Heart crooner actually released a reggae-flavored album, Be Here Soon, in 2000. Click here to enjoy “Movin’”—”soon I’ll be touching you…touching the dream!”
- The majority of Best Supporting Actor Christoph Waltz‘s film career has been over in Germany, but fans hungry to see him sans subtitles can rent the 2000 straight-to-DVD flop, Ordinary Decent Criminal, an Irish crime drama starring Kevin Spacey and Colin Farrell. Waltz plays Dutch art dealer Peter: judging from this clip, we’re not surprised Oscar didn’t notice.
- Sandra Bullock may have never been near an Oscar before, but she gave her first televised acceptance speech in 1995, when she won Best Female Performance, Most Desirable Female and Best On-Screen Duo with Keanu Reeves for Speed at the MTV Movie Awards. Those guys are always ahead of the curve!
