Oscar Men: Pharrell, Uggie And Other Guys Who Stepped It Up

“She’s so gorgeous!” “She’s too thin!” “I love her hair! “Is she pregnant?” “What was her stylist thinking?” Yes, most of our commentary about Oscar fashion revolves around the women in attendance. The lovely ladies of Hollywood always steal the show on the red carpet, but we want to give the men a chance to shine. While some guys just slap on a penguin suit and call it a day, a few put a little extra thought into their attire, and for that, we applaud them.

Keeping the swag level high, P.Diddy told us he went for a custom-made suit from London. Interior designer/talk-show host Nate Berkus has impeccable taste that clearly translates to his sense of fashion. And Nate was kind enough to let us in on the reasoning behind his fashion splurge: “When you’re 5-8″, you don’t go for a tuxedo from a store ’cause then you look 5’8″ … Don’t I look 5’9″?” Pharrell Williams served as the night’s musical director, so he knew his sartorial choice would be on the screen a whole lot. He was looking fresh to death in a Lanvin tuxedo, complete with waistcoat. “I’m clean baby! This what it’s all about right here!”

From the Oscar veterans like the velvet-loving Christopher Plummer to the newcomers like Jonah Hill, there were plenty of other men rocking a suit like a GQ photo shoot. Check out our gallery below and tell us who your faves were.

20 Oscar Nominees’ Least Award-Winning Roles: From Halloween II To Hannibal

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.

Brawley Nolte Arrested For DUI After Accident

brawley & nick nolte

Brawley Nolte, former child actor (he was Mel Gibson‘s son—remember “GIVE ME BACK MY SON!!!“?—in Ransom) and son of two-time Oscar nominee Nick Nolte, was arrested for suspicion of driving under the influence in Santa Monica Tuesday afternoon. Nolte reportedly hit a car while making a lane change, failing multiple sobriety tests at the scene. He is currently free on $5,000 bail.

Ironically (or not), his father was found guilty of the same charge in 2002. Check out photos of the pair in the gallery below.
