It’s July 2014, and is there anyone with a higher public approval rating than Pharrell Williams? Over the last 12 months the singer-rapper-producer has gone from being one of the most inventive and respected artists in music circles to a beloved international sensation even your mother can’t resist.
La Toya Jackson tells us the three things she can’t live without, Matthew McConaughey might reprise a celebrated role, and we get ready to celebrate 30 years of Ghostbusters.
Lost’s Terry O’Quinn sure knows how to work a knife, Ashley Tisdale hits Miami for a bachelorette bonanza, and why did Steve Carell slap Channing Tatum?
Remember the days Jake Gyllenhaal and former girlfriend Kirsten Dunst would walk their dog Atticus together in Los Angeles? Yes, and it was perfect. The Manic Pixie Dream Couple of the early ’00s may be long gone, but Gyllenhaal’s career only intensified after that relationship. As did his gossip potential and attempts at leading man status, giving us maple latte dates with Taylor Swift and the forgettable Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time.
2014 seems to be the year of Matthew McConaughey, so what better time to take a moment to look back at the man’s career and judge the sh*t out of it? That’s where Best Week Ever and Doug Benson come in. Our dear pal Doug is visiting us this week to give us the low down on the highs and lows of Mr. McConaughey’s varied career. The twist?

How’s John Travolta dealing after his big flub of Idina Menzel‘s name at the Oscars? Angelina Jolie stuns fans on the cover of Entertainment Weekly, and Jared Leto might be taking his career in a new direction.
The 2014 Oscars have come and gone, but lucky for us we have Instagram snapshots to last a lifetime. 12 Years a Slave‘s Lupita Nyong’o has been living a Cinderella-like fairy tale over the last few weeks, charming award show audiences with her poise and stealing the spotlight on red carpets with her stunning style choices. The whirlwind continued over Oscar weekend, where she schmoozed with some of Hollywood’s elite and even made a new friend. Hint: he’s gold and his name is Oscar.

Each year, the awards season means certain stars get an opportunity to shine as they make the rounds on red carpets, picking up trophies and working their way toward that Oscar.

Meanwhile, Anne Hathaway couldn’t muster the same spirit. Speech after speech, fans felt she was phoning it in. Luckily, the stars on this list, including Lupita Nyong’o, Matthew McConaughey and Emma Thompson, fall in line J-Law.
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’.
