Thankfully, for our eyes, no one showed up to the People’s Choice Awards in anything downright hideous. But there were a handful of ladies whose dresses (and pantsuits) missed the mark in such disappointing ways. Olivia Munn looked like she was going to work in a bank; Monica Potter’s otherwise cute dress was attacked by a pair of doilies; Ashley Rickards, Morena Baccarin and Naomi Watts were done in by unflattering tailoring. We hate putting the likes of Shay Mitchell and Molly Quinn on this list, so maybe we’re too quick to judge Shay’s random beading or Molly’s ’90s goth looks? Take a look at our least favorite looks of the night and let us know if you agree.
Please help us decide about this Elie Saab dress Lea Michele wore to the People’s Choice Awards. Part of us thinks it’s super cute and were we blessed with Lea’s legs, we’d want it right now. Part of us is weirded out by the rectangular cluster of extra sequins strategically placed to hide her private bits. There’s the fact that her body looks slamming in it, but then there’s the fact that it shows a disturbing amount of underboob and would maybe look classier if it were just an inch longer. But the color is so fun! And it is the PCAs we’re talking here, not the Oscars. But she’s making those cheesy poses and faces! But she just won for Favorite Comedic TV Actress!
Seriously, we can’t decide. Will you please do this for us?
We always feel a little uneasy speculating about the ongoing Rihanna/Chris Brown/Karrueche Tran drama. So it’s nice when one of them gives a nice, long, introspective Vibe interview revealing their inner most feelings about the situation. Though we have to admit, a few of Karreuche Tran’s statements have us raising our collective eyebrow. “I’ve been on a rollercoaster for the past year,” model Tran admits to the magazine. Oh honey…like we don’t know that? Like we haven’t all been right behind you, screaming, on that exact same coaster?
It looks like Tina Fey has heard our fervent prayers and decided to bring back Salma Hayek for the series finale of 30 Rockon January 31. She already answered our prayers that both Nancy Pelosi and Ice-T be somehow included in the episode, which makes us realize we have a lot of extremely weird, hyper-specific prayers. Hayek will be returning as Jack Donaghy’s ex-girlfriend Elisa, the love interest we all known Alec Baldwin should have been with all along. So since we’re bringing back the show’s greatest guest stars, can we please request that Matt Damon return as Liz Lemon’s ex Carol? Because he is obviously who she should have ended up with all along. Please?
It’s not that we don’t like James Marsden‘s character Criss. He and Liz had a lovely, weirdo court house wedding this past November. It’s just that we don’t like James Marsden’s Criss as much as Matt Damon’s weepy, stubborn Carol. Carol and Liz were the perfect match! It’s only because Matt Damon had a bustling film career that his character couldn’t stick around. (No offense, Marsden.) We would be peeved to see Jack end up with his soulmate and Liz stuck with a partner that was not quite as perfect. Then again, apparently Julianne Moore‘s Nancy will also be popping back up in the finale episode. If Tina Fey decides to pair her with Jack and neglects to invite Damon back…well, we wash our hands of this finale entirely! You might as well forget to invite Rachel Dratch while you’re at it!
Back in September, Nina Dobrev told us that she plans on playing a teenager for as long as she can, and we think the Vampire Diaries star, who turns 24 today, can do that for at least a couple more years. On the other hand, now that we’ve seen her play not one but two undead vixens on TVD, she’s going to have a hard time convincing anyone she’s an innocent young thing. Especially not after all those smoldering onscreen looks between her and real-life boyfriend Ian Somerhalder. Not that this should be a loss — after all, she must be having so much more fun now than as a weak human cheerleader. And not that we’re jealous of her or anything.
Let’s all wish Nina a happy birthday as we browse through her 24 most seductive looks.
We’re starting to get a little jealous that Mark Wahlberg wants to say hi to our mothers all the time. In case we’d somehow forgotten that Marky Mark is adorable and hilarious in addition to being ripped (please watch the Pain And Gain trailer for more information regarding Mark Wahlberg’s gun show), the actor and his Broken City director Allen Hughes popped up on Fox 29′s Good Day Philadelphia to deliver the weather report today, i.e. charm the khakis off all the moms in the viewing area.
“We’re expecting 40- to 45-minute delays if you’re coming east bound on the 676 here,” Wahlberg explained in what can only be described as Chris Farley‘s “Da Bears” accent while flailing his arms in front of a green screen. “You’re going to have some serious problems. Why don’t you stop and get yourself a hoagie?” Did you know Mark Wahlberg has been with his wife since 2001 and they have four beautiful children together? He was basically engineered in a lab for moms to love him. On a related note, we’re assuming director Allen Hughes unleashed Mark Wahlberg onto the Philly airways because his staggering charm is the only way anyone will be seeing Broken City. Have any of you even heard of it until right this second? It’s coming out next Friday! Tell your mother to go see it. Also? Please tell her hello.
Forget the Golden Globes; put aside your hopes and wishes for tonight’s People’s Choice Awards; sleep in and skip tomorrow’s Oscar nominations announcement, because we here at VH1 Celebrity have a much more important title to hand out this awards season: Best Facial Hair Performance in a Motion Picture. You know we’re not alone in pointing out how important beards, mutton chops, mustaches and scruff have been to 2012′s most critically acclaimed films: Can you even imagine Lincoln, Django Unchained, Argo, Les Miserables, Bernie or (god forbid) The Hobbit with clean-shaven stars?

VH1 News polled the heavy hitters at the National Board of Review Awards on Tuesday night to see who the stars would nominate and the answers were predictably enthusiastic.
“I’m not worried about awards season, but I have been going for best beard,” Ben Affleck told us. “[Leonardo DiCaprio’s] got the best, probably, and Bradley [Cooper’s] got, like, the scruff, which doesn’t look like a beard-beard but you can’t discredit because it’s carefully calibrated.” Read more…
Alabama quarterback A.J. McCarron’s girlfriend Katherine Webb blew up the internet yesterday for (1.) being incredibly hot, and (2.) getting pretty aggressively crushed on by ESPN commentator Brent Musberger during Monday night’s BSC Title game. The veteran broadcaster came under fire for singling the lovely Ms. Webb out, and has generally been made out to be a bit of a dirty old man. But now Katherine is coming to Brent’s aid, defending him during an appearance on NBC’s Today Show this morning.
“I think the media’s been unfair to him,” she said during an interview with Matt Lauer. “If he would have said something along the lines of we were hot or sexy or made any derogatory statements like that, I think it would have been a little bit different. The fact he said we were both beautiful and gorgeous, I don’t see why any woman wouldn’t be flattered by that. So, I think that they’ve been unfair to him.” Beautiful and gracious: A.J. is a lucky man.
Things are getting even better for the former Miss Tennessee. Miss America baron Donald Trump is apparently going to ask her to get involved with the iconic Atlantic City event this year. “We are going to ask Katherine Webb to be a judge at the Miss USA Pageant coming up in Las Vegas,” he tweeted today. But it probably got lost in the shuffle of her Twitter feed. Her followers jumped from just over 2000 to over 234,000 in two days!
Well, we see everyone remembered to take their crazy pills this morning. What other explanation can there be for the rampant debate on Twitter and Tumblr over whether Sam Claflin is hot enough to be Hunger Games contender Finnick Odair, following the release of Entertainment Weekly‘s new Catching Firecover. First of all, you can’t base a character or performer’s hotness on one photo. You have to look at all the evidence. Was Sam Claflin hot on the Catching Fire set in September? Yes. Was he hot leaping into the water while wearing a skin-tight wetsuit? Double yes. And if you have to base someone’s hotness on one photo, why not base it on EW’s inside photo of Katniss and Finnick? Are you looking at it now? Alright, alright.
So why are people doubting Claflin’s ability to pull off a character who is supposed to be hotness incarnate? If you ask us, it’s because both stars are clearly suffering from a case of Heinous Wig Syndrome (HWS), a terrible disease that also befell the Twilight casts during the last four movies of their franchise. Admit it: even Jennifer Lawrence looks less than amazing on this cover. Maybe those are special cinematic wigs that just don’t take to the close shots and heavy Photoshop of magazine photography. We don’t know; we never finished our Masters in Wig Studies. But keep the faith, everybody. We suspect Sam Claflin will have you furiously shipping Katniss/Finnick in no time. Seriously, did you look at that second photo? Humina.
