We are dying at what an adorable little fancy man Katy Perry makes in drag. The singer stopped by Ellen today to celebrate Ellen DeGeneres‘ 55th birthday (did Ellen make some kind of deal with an evil wizard to look that good?), and to channel her inner dude in an amazing three-piece suit, toupee and mustache. We could honestly watch Katy dance her silly gentleman dance all day, but we had to take a break to round up the other female celebs from Lady Gaga to Gwyneth Paltrow to Amanda Bynes who look amazing in drag. And by “amazing,” we mean “like Daniel Radcliffe with a weird, sparse goatee.” Seriously, take a look.
The nominees for the 2013 Golden Globes were announced bright and early this morning, and the list didn’t feature a ton of surprises. Perhaps the most surprising part is that these men and women have all kept truckin’ with their acting careers despite having made some hilariously bad role choices in the past. Congrats guys, you’re an illustration of the enduring human spirit! Or maybe you all just got better agents…
To be fair, folks like Leonardo DiCaprio, Helen Hunt and Joaquin Phoenix when they made their turkeys, so they didn’t know any better. But not everyone in this list has that excuse! Ben Affleck might have a GG nod for best director with Argo, but it still doesn’t excuse the fact that he helped bring Gigli to life. And why have we all forgotten that The Good Wife’s Julianna Margulies was in Snakes On A Plane, or that Alec Baldwin appeared as Mr. Conductor in the children’s train movie Thomas And The Magic Track? It’s pretty priceless!
Let’s dive deep into the IMDB page of these acclaimed thespians and pull out some truly amazing forgotten films. It’s like cinematic naked baby photos! And always remember: You too can still rise to the top, even if you’ve made a movie as bad as She-Devil.

We have a feeling that unlike the buttoned up and glamorous stars at the Oscars — who continue quite properly to the Vanity Fair afterparty — the TV actors who attend the Emmys can’t freaking wait until after the telecast is over, so they can let loose and act more like themselves. And for proof, we need look no further than the hilarious photos taken last night. From the presenters’ gifting suite, where Glenn Close killed us with the above bikini cut-out, to the winners step-and-repeat, where Louis C.K. turned his Emmys into action figures, to the various afterparties, stars could not stop hamming it up. We had to be judicious and not make half of this gallery pictures of Julie Bowen having the time of her life, but trust us, the two you’ll see below are perfect representations. And you know how actors and musicians laugh at regular people’s notions that all famous people know each other? They’re lying. They really are all the best of friends. We can just tell.

We’re Obsessed With Kat Dennings’ Emmys Red Carpet Dress (Not To Mention. The. Girls.)
Think of a color. Think of an obscure shade, or even a nondescript one. It was probably represented on the Oscars 2012 red carpet. Paler, more interesting shades like Sarah Hyland‘s rhubarb colored Alberta Feretti dress or Berenice Bejo‘s lovely mint green gown by Elie Saab. There will definitely be some debates about Penelope Cruz’s iceberg custom Giorgio Armani organza gown which in itself was old-school Hollywood glamor, but the color on her wasn’t the best choice.
The ones we’ve really fallen in love with are Viola Davis‘ and Michelle Williams’ emerald Vera Wang and tangerine Louis Vuitton, respectively. Best dressed all the way. Natalie Portman made us sit up and cheer for her red Dior Haute Couture dress from Rare Vintage, which is a 1954 collection. Emma Stone also never disappoints. She wore one of her favorite red carpet designers, Giambattista Valli, choosing a a stunning raspberry-colored number this time. If you’re in the mood to look at the rest of the rainbow — including Missi Pyle‘s blue Valentina Delfino made from “cruely-free silkworms” — then feel free to flip through our gallery below. Don’t forget to tell us what you think.

Classic black never goes out of style. There may have been a fair amount of neutrals and grays and bold colors on the 2012 Sag Awards red carpet last night, but black actually outnumbered them all. None of the gowns veered towards goth territory, either, as all the styles went the romantic or slightly edgy route.
We saw drapes on the likes of Melissa McCarthy’s Badgley Mischka, Archie Panjabi’s one-shouldered Carolina Herrera and Angelina Jolie’s Jenny Packham halter-necked gown. The latter was a little too safe for our liking. Wearing the same designer was Ashlee Simpson, whose dress was similar to the number Vanessa Hudgens wore to the People’s Choice Awards. No contest here: Ashlee wore the better version.
Amber Heard killed it in a Zac Posen cut-out dress and guess who wore the same designer? Glenn Close! She rocked that gown and her compatriot Jessica Lange did the same in a slinky sequined David Meister number. Both the ladies are still so sexy in their 60s! Joining the sequin brigade was Jayma Mays‘ beautiful Reem Acra gown with a dramatic demi-train. We saw a lot of lace overlay as well, whether it was in Amber Riley’s Badgley Mischka, Stacy Keibler’s Marchesa or Emma Stone’s custom Alexander McQueen. We’d also like to hand out top marks to our favourite 30 Rock ladies for bringing on the fabulous. Tina Fey looked very sexy in her vintage Versace gown as did Jane Krakowski in Antonio Berardi. Everyone did really good here, and black was anything but boring. The only celebrity we wish had upped the stakes was Glee’s Heather Morris. Her half-sheer Masai Payan dress just didn’t work.
We’d love to hear your opinions so click through our gallery and sound off in the comments section.

Oscar nominations are pretty much the be-all and end-all when it comes to determining whether actors and actresses have “made it.” Still, it’s good to remember that all those potential Academy Award winners had to start off at the same place: the bottom (and many of them take trips back down there, for nostalgic reasons, we assume). The truth is, whether you’re Jonah Hill or Melissa McCarthy or especially Gary Oldman, you’re bound to have a few embarrassing movie skeletons in your closet. Check out the 2012 Oscar nominees’ least award-winning roles and remember: if Octavia Spencer could go from Halloween II to Academy Award nominee in two years, then maybe you can too! Well, not you specifically. But definitely somebody.
As soon as the 69th annual Golden Globe nominations were announced this morning, industry folks like Variety began noting how many movie stars (as opposed to fancy ahctorrrs, we guess) are nominated: George Clooney, Brad Pitt and Ryan Gosling aren’t exactly slouches in the acting department, but they don’t turn their noses down at a good romantic comedy heist film either. On the other hand, the more we think about it, the more we think maybe they should have turned down a few gigs. Well, no regrets, Meryl and Glenn and Leo. You turned out OK. Just forgive us for laughing with you at some of the skeletons in your closet/IMDb page!
The Descendants, The Artist and The Help seem to be three of the biggest films so far in the 2012 awards season race. But the Screen Actors Guild Awards nominations were announced this morning, and The Help and The Artist were leading the nods with three apiece, while the George Clooney flick picked up only two. In the hottest contest, for Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture, The Artist and The Descendants are up against Bridesmaids and Midnight in Paris. The actor category recognized Clooney, The Artist’s Jean Dujardin, Brad Pitt for Moneyball, Leonardo DiCaprio for J. Edgar and A Better Life star Demian Bichir. The lead actress contenders are Glenn Close for Albert Nobbs, as well as the same four ladies that have been nominated all season long already: Viola Davis for The Help, Meryl Streep for The Iron Lady, Tilda Swinton for We Need to Talk About Kevin and Michelle Williams for My Week With Marylin. The supporting actor and actress categories also closely resemble every other kudosfest so far (though, sorry, Drive fans, Albert Brooks was left out of this one).
There are plenty of familiar faces in the TV categories too — Boardwalk Empire, Breaking Bad, Dexter and The Good Wife are up against newcomer Game of Thrones. (Good thing there’s no “you win or you die” rule here.)
The most exciting nominations to us? The stunt ensembles! The Adjustment Bureau, Cowboys & Aliens, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2, Transformers: Dark of the Moon and X-Men: First Class are the movie casts up for the prize. And the Dexter, Game of Thrones, Southland, Spartacus: Gods of the Arena and True Blood ensembles compete in the TV category. Wait, can that one be an arena battle, instead of a vote? Pretty please?
Head here for the complete SAG Awards list. The 18th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards will air live on Sunday, January 29, on TNT and TBS at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT.

Let’s first put this event into context. It wasn’t a party held in Sherwood Forest, clearly. The 11th Annual Robin Hood Foundation gala took place yesterday at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York. The foundation benefits people dealing with poverty and lately, National Reservists and veterans of the Afghanistan and Iraq wars. This year $400,000 will also assist veterans to fly to L.A and record a song Will.I.Am. And to stir things up, Lady Gaga performed at the benefit as well!
As for the celebrity guests, lets focus on two incredibly famous ones — Sarah Jesscia Parker and Gisele Bundchen. We don’t mean to rag on them because they were helping with a great cause, but what were you thinking ladies! We don’t have much issue with what SJP was wearing because everything that was blah about the outfit was eclipsed by that hair! Who did that to you, Parker? It looks like a cobra rearing its head! You should have used your Carrie cred and told (threatened, even) your hairstylist to put that teaser comb down. As for Gisele, we get she’s a supermodel and God blessed her with genetics far beyond our comprehension, but what is that outfit? We get you’re sex on a stick, Gisele. We don’t need to see your sternum, inside-boob and inner thighs to know that. Dominatrix-meets-sexy librarian may be a little too much for a benefit.
Luckily, others stars fared better. Kelly Ripa and her husband Mark Consuelos get our vote for best dressed couple. Mariska Hargitay looked pretty fine too and a preggers Thalia is just adorable! Take a look at our gallery for the rest of the celebrity guests.

Rain be damned! Hollywood’s elite came out for the Golden Globes in their finest, and man did they do it up right! Emily Blunt continued her streak as a red carpet princess in a pink frilly number, Marion Cotillard‘s sexy slit revealed some black lace, Tina Fey channeled Marilyn Monroe in a 50s-inspired frock, Sandra Bullock was bold in bright purple, and Olivia Wilde sizzled in a shimmery Gucci gown. Check out our top 30 best dressed A-list ladies below. [Photos: Getty Images]
