There’s no doubt we all like to let our freak flag fly on occasion. Sometimes it’s from a sugar rush, sometimes it’s from lack of sleep, and sometimes its from being born with a genetic piece of pure nuttiness (myself included). Fortunately, celebrities are just like us and have moments of extreme weirdness. Yeah, I’m talking photobombing. Whether they’re at the Emmy Awards or the Grammys, nothing will stop a determined celeb from committing the ultimate prank: jumping in on someone else’s serious photo op!
Nepotism is alive and well in Hollywood, folks. There are so many second-generation celebs running around Tinseltown, you’d think it was a family reunion. Actors with a movie star parent are a dime a dozen (hi, Kate Hudson and Michael Douglas) — but some of our biggest stars have parents who were more lowkey showbiz players, in an under-the-radar kind of way. From Lenny Kravtiz’s producer dad to Kristen Stewart’s script supervisor mom, these celebs aren’t the only bold face names in their families.
We have mixed feelings about Sunday night’s Emmys — we’re generally happy about the winners, there were a few funny moments, and yeah, we cried a little too. But from a fashion perspective, our overall reaction was, “Meh.” Except when it came to the bold earrings, necklaces and boulder-size rings on some of the attendees. We imagine the carpet was crowded with bodyguards trailing million-dollar baubles on loan to the stars (we love imagining the heist in which someone pries a ring off Giuliana Rancic’s hand on live TV!). How well did you pay attention to the rocks and sparkles on your favorite celebs on Sunday night? Now’s your chance to test your knowledge, and get a closer look at these new jewelry trends.
First, who wore this tourmaline ring?
The 2013 Emmy Award nominations will be announced bright and early tomorrow morning, which means we’ll soon have the pleasure of knowing who to root for come September and what to immediately start complaining about on Twitter. Assuming some of the performances we’ve been most fond of won’t be recognized by the Academy, here are a few of our favorite moments from the past year on the tube worthy of both industry hardware and your undying love.
Big Morning Buzz Live is celebrating the week in celebrity fashion with style expert, Jackie Miranne. In today’s Fashion Fridays feature, Jackie breaks down eight celebrity outfits, including looks worn by Rihanna, Leonardo DiCaprio and Zooey Deschanel, and determines who passed this week’s style test.
Why does Zooey Deschanel like being called an “alien?” Is Wes Craven going to help MTV Scream? And why are Johnny Depp and Meryl Streep joining forces?
We’ve been on our death bed all day, trying to recover from Nick and Jess’s first kiss on New Girl last night. Could that kiss have been any better? On one hand, dear God, no. The heavy breathing? The two small kisses at the end? We aren’t made of stone here, people! On the other hand, there is nothing more gratifying than a long-awaited TV kiss, and there have been a number of shows who absolutely killed it. How do Nick and Jess compare to, say, a Sam and Diane? A Damon and Elena? A Pam and Jim? Using our totally objective (read: highly personal) opinions, let’s see how their first smooch stacked up to the epic TV first kisses that came before:
Sorry if you haven’t watched this week’s New Girl yet, but Fox has been promoting this thing all week long, so get out of your cave already! Just halfway into season two of the Fox comedy, Zooey Deschanel’s Jess and Jake Johnson’s Nick shared a super-steamy lip lock at the end of the episode, deceptively called “Cooler.” At first, I screamed, “Noooooo!” — worried that it meant an early resolution to the will-they-or-won’t they tension between the roommates, which can sometimes be the kiss of death for a show. But after reading executive producer Liz Meriweather’s interview with the Hollywood Reporter, my fears are mostly allayed. She felt like a drawn-out tease wouldn’t work in this situation. “I just think it doesn’t correspond to real-life relationships, especially for people the ages of the characters on New Girl, because they are so complicated these days,” she explained. “And I don’t think a kiss means a relationship is going to happen. I don’t think bringing two characters together takes away story possibility; I think it adds a lot of story possibility. Keeping them apart, at this point, felt more fake then bringing them together for me.”
Zooey Deschanel turns the big three three today, and what better way to celebrate the birth of our favorite be-banged sitcom star then to pay homage to the 33 most twee Zooey D. moments? Just so we’re clear, we are all about tweeness, particularly Zooey’s. Like the woman herself told Glamour, “We can’t be feminine and be feminists and be successful? I want to be a f—ing feminist and wear a f—ing Peter Pan collar. So f—ing what?” Never change for anyone, lady! Never change.
