Anne Hathaway And Amanda Seyfried Reportedly Fought Before The Oscars

AnneHathawayAmandaSeyfriedFeud

Talk of the 2013 Academy Awards would be incomplete without mentioning the buzz that surrounded Best Supporting Actress winner Anne Hathaway’s dress, amplified once word hit she decided against her Valentino gown just hours before the show. We chalked it up to nerves–and the second-guessing that comes when you’re about to be put on display before millions of grouches who probably aren’t going to like anything you say–but apparently there was a little bit of a Les Miz rivalry going on behind the scenes.

VH1 Style Points: Jessica Chastain, Eddie Redmayne Outshone Everyone At The Oscars

VH1 Style Points - Oscar Edition

Awards season fashion-judging is almost more fun than watching the awards themselves (definitely the case with Sunday’s flat, terribly un-PC Oscars ceremony). For your armchair fashion policing pleasure, we created a Style Points race to track how the fashions of the following high wattage stars stacked up during Awards Season: Anne Hathaway, Jennifer Lawrence, Eddie RedmayneAmanda Seyfried, Bradley Cooper, Jessica Chastain and Kerry Washington.

oscars_main

Like most of us, I’ve often fantasized about attending the grand glittering spectacle known as the Academy Awards. But tragically I’ve been held back by my total lack of acting skills, directing skills, or any film-related talent whatsoever. Yet one day out of the clear blue sky I was given the once in a lifetime opportunity to gain access Hollywood’s ground zero. I was lucky, but getting the green-light was just the beginning. There were many many unexpected steps on the journey to the golden bald man. So if you ever find yourself married to Sandra Bullock and have to be her date to the Oscars, these are some logistics you will have to consider when turning your Oscar fantasy into a reality.

5 People Who Attended The Oscars That I Had To Google

oscarswho

Even if you’re not a blogger, it might’ve been a good idea to watch the Oscars with your trusty laptop (or even your smartphone!) by your side. Not to entertain you while the show goes on for THREE LONG BORING HOURS, but so you can quickly Google any mysterious faces you see along the red carpet. Even if you didn’t, I did, because god forbid I don’t know who is who and what’s going on during Hollywood’s Biggest Night. And thanks to Google, now I know the Wikipedia history of anyone who came within a 50 foot radius of that golden statue.

Carrie Keagan’s 2013 Oscar Picks: So How’d She Do?

With so much talk of puppy purses and douche geniuses, it’s easy to forget Sunday’s Academy Awards was all about recognizing great achievements in film over the last calendar year (or supposed to be, at least). Last week, VH1′s Big Morning Buzz Live host Carrie Keagan bravely unveiled her own Oscar predictions, positioning herself to either be potentially humiliated by her peers or referred to as “The Next Nate Silver” until the end of time. Now that the parties are over and the champagne has been sipped, let’s see how her picks stack up against the real winners. Read more…

Jennifer Lawrence Left Starstruck By Jack Nicholson And More Oscar Introductions

Oscars Jennifer Lawrence Meets Jack Nicholson

With such heavy pre-show coverage before the Academy Awards, media outlets typically bank on a few disastrous gowns and at least one or two “OMG” moments–à la The Dictator’s baby powder bomb–to keep things interesting while sweating it out on live television.  But sometimes, allowing the stars to act naturally (what a concept!), along with a few well-timed introductions, is all the magic one red carpet telecast needs. That and Jennifer Lawrence‘s vivacious personality and knack for making awesome faces.

Celebrities Defend Oscars Nominee Quvenzhané Wallis Against The Onion’s “C*nt” Tweet

celebs-vs-the-onion

If another person tries to explain satire to me as if I didn’t learn that in middle school, I will scream. We get it: The Onion is a satirical website, a funny one that this writer used to visit frequently. No one and no topic is off limits in their brand of satirical comedy. None of that excuses the site or the tweet’s author for calling nine-year-old Oscar nominee Quvenzhané Wallis the c-word. There’s no satire or comedy in degrading a child who, by the way, was making history at last night’s Oscars as the youngest nominee ever.

Oscars 2013: When Bad Ties Happen To Good People

BadOscarTies

Frills, lengthy trains, and visible nipples might get the most attention during major award shows, but that’s not to say that men are off the hook when it comes to red carpet expectations. With an array of choices–bow tie or straight neck? Cumberbund or vest?–male attendees, and the females who dare don a tux themselves, are just as capable of making a fashion faux pas. Even those showered in praise from the Academy! They’ve had weeks to prepare for this moment, and yet…

No One Was Safe From Oscar Host Seth MacFarlane’s Jabs, Not Even Quvenzhane Wallis [VIDEO]

Oscar host Seth MacFarlane did not, as he predicted during his opening monologue last night, wake up to any headlines this morning proclaiming him the Worst Oscar Host Ever. The creator of Family Guy and Ted DID earn himself a bit of backlash from Buzzfeed for his sorta sexist song “We Saw Your Boobs,” but many people who voted in our poll about his performance liked that he showed no fear in taking Hollywood’s A-List to task.
