Jennifer Lawrence’s Oscar win and general flawlessness has pretty much solidified that she is the woman of the internet’s dreams. She’s funny, smart and doesn’t mind making a fool out of herself. While she was meant to play the role of The Hunger Games‘ Katniss Everdeen, we also think she had another major role only meant for her in the stars: The MGM Lion.
Because you know it’s going to be a good movie when the first thing you see is Jennifer Lawrence.
In the world of celebrity news, there’s no shortage of hits and misses. This week, Jennifer Lawrence is flawless after snagging an Oscar, One Directioner Harry Styles gets hit with a shoe and diva Mariah Carey gives us an eyeful.
HIT: Jennifer lawrence jokes around with the press.
We were all on the edge of our seats when the gorgeous Jennifer Lawrence had a little tumble on her way to accept her Oscar for best Actress for her role in Silver Linings Playbook. But instead of breaking down and having a total biotch-fit, the actress commented on her slip. When she was later asked what was going through her head when she tripped, the actress said, “a bad word that I can’t say that starts with ‘F.’” Well Jennifer, you made that fall look so good and who could blame you? That dress you were wearing was pretty redonkulous.
MISS: Harry Styles gets hit with a shoe.
On Tuesday our favourite Brits performed in Glasgow, Scotland when Styles got hit in the crotch with a flying shoe. Ouch! Fans have expressed their condolences in the twitterverse by hashtgging, #Pray4HarryBalls. We’ll be sure to keep them in our prayers. Hmm… Maybe someone should check if T-Swift has any missing shoes in her closest. LOL.
HIT: FLOTUS presents Best Picture
While the Oscars try their very best at keeping us entertained and guessing, nothing was more unexpected and surprising than the First Lady of the United States’ Oscar appearance. Via satellite, The FLOTUS helped present Best Picture to Argo. According to Deadline, Michelle’s involvement was so top secret that she wasn’t even included on the production schedule.

Last night was like watching the Tony Awards as the 2013 Oscars were jam packed with performances ranging from Seth Mcfarlane all the way to Shirley Bassey. The best part of last nights festivities were no doubt the performances. Um, hello? THE Barbra Streisand performing? Yes, please.
My personal favourite performances was Les Mis for the sole reason that experienced and talented broadway actors like Aaron Tveit got to perform on the Oscar stage for the very first time — they now have it made. Also, I can watch Hugh Jackman perform any day, all day. He can really do ANYTHING. He and Anne Hathaway look and sound so great together on screen and on stage (think back to when she performed with him when he was hosting a few years ago).
For your viewing pleasure, may we present all the night’s performances in one place!
We Saw Your Boobs (Seth Mcfarlane)
I wonder if this song was offensive or not…I have yet to decide. I just enjoyed Jennifer Lawrence being really happy we haven’t seen her boobs.

Sing it Aaron Tveit, werk that Oscar stage girl (thanks patrick-dempsey for his gif-able catwalk)

The Oscars only happen once a year but 364 days of that year, the people of tumblr rant and cry over how the Academy continues to unjustly snub Leonardo DiCaprio. Has The Academy never seen Inception? Shutter Island? Revolutionary Road? Blood Diamond? TITANIC?
Yes, if you were wondering, I am that person on tumblr who cries about this brilliant man’s lack of awards and don’t even get me started on the fact Johnny Depp has never won one either. My fingers are crossed for Leo to finally win all the awards for his role in The Great Gatsby — well all know he will own the part. Go check out the trailers, I promise you will not regret it.
Anyways, check out some of tumblr’s hysterical reactions last night to the lack of Leonardo Dicaprio at the festivities.
BEST: Anne Hathaway’s speech
So touching. People say it was too long, but I thought it was humbling and heartwarming. We all knew she would win, she was so brilliant in Les Mis.
WORST: Twitter handle for Anna Hathaway’s Nipple
People, the seam on the side of the dress created an allusion that Anne was bearing her nipples. Leave her alone okay? Although…she just won an Oscar, I’m not sure she cares all that much about what you have to say about her dress last night.
BEST: Envelopes are hard to open
Sandra Bullock’s facial reactions for best supporting actress please? Kind of looks like someone we know (*cough* Photoshopped Beyonce *cough*)
WORST: Wizards at the Oscars
Y’all need to get a hair cut
BEST: J-Law is really happy we haven’t seen her boobs Read more…
During his annual post-Academy Awards late night show, Jimmy Kimmel debuted the sequel to last year’s wildly popular Movie: The Movie spoof trailer.
Movie: The Movie: V2 jammed-packed a lot of sexy creatures (vampires, mummies, zombies and leprechauns: “taste the rainbow”) destroying the world. The late night show has to call on a group of not-so-super hero pals to save the day. The trailer is brimming with Kimmel’s celebrity pals, including:
Also featured is a gigantic Channing Tatum who’s ultimate power resides from his glowing crotch. With that in mind, the trailer is yet another parody of all of our favourite movie tropes.
Watch below and see if you can catch them all (it’s just like pokémon!)
A friend of mine recently commented on one of the many Oscar links I’ve shared on Facebook and said reading the story I just posted made him care less about the Oscars (blasphemy!). He also added the following:
“My Oscar nominations are based on: Number of aliens slain by Iron Man, quality of wizard/hobbit relations, and whether or not the lead character would survive in the Hunger Games.”
Touché, friend. Touché. But I have to wonder: who would win based on his criteria?
Considering Academy’s best picture nominees do not include Iron Man, aliens, wizards or hobbits, we’re going to pick our Oscar favourites based on the lead character’s ability to survive The Hunger Games. Here we go!

I’ll have to find out if he was right during tomorrow’s Oscar broadcast!
The Oscars are this weekend and we’re placing our bets on Anne Hathaway to win Best Supporting Actress. Her rendition of “I Dream A Dream” in Les Misérables had us crying like little babies in the theatre. Except unlike babies who are adorable even when they’re crying (minus the wailing. That’s never fun), it was a full blown ugly cry session (Think Lauren Conrad with the single mascara tear running down her face).
This video of YouTuber Ijameswalters singing “I Dream A Dream” has us crying for other reasons. He had the brilliant idea to sing the iconic song as Gollum from Lord of the Rings. His facial impressions are pretty priceless. If the studios ever re-make the series (please don’t) and Andy Serkis, the actor who plays Gollum via CGI technology, isn’t available, we hope that Ijameswaters get the role.

When Anne Hathaway won her Golden Globe for her role of Fantine in Les Miserables, she said “anyone can bounce back.” She explains how she went from being a Disney princess to where she is now, and reminded us of that time when Sally Field played a flying nun. After we finished bowing down to the royalty that is Anne Hathaway, ANDPOP started to look at some of this years Oscar nominee’s and the embarrassing movies they did way back when. Like Hathaway said, you can bounce back from anything, and in some actors cases we see how true that statement really is.
I just hope Les Miserables just wins all of the awards, because in my opinion, it was the movie of the year. The actors nominated this year are a great bunch. From Anne Hathaway to Sally Field and from Hugh Jackman to Daniel Day Lewis, it is most definitely a talented bunch. Personally, I can’t wait. I can’t even guess who will win because this year was a great year for films and actor performances. However, why wasn’t Leonardo DiCaprio nominated for Django? The man is a genius actor who has done genius films, the Academy clearly has something against the poor guy. Thats okay Leo. You can cry on my shoulder.
ANDPOP Is very excited to watch the Oscars. After all, Barbara Streisand and the cast of Les Miserables are both performing. We have the date saved on our calendar, do you?
See the nominees worthy and non oscar-worthy performances below
1) Anne Hathaway
Anne Hathaway has been a Disney princess in The Princess Diaries, drug addict in Rachel Getting Married and of course, Catwoman in The Dark Knight Rises. Most recently, she was Fantine in Les Miserables. With every movie she does, she outdoes her last performance. She already won the Globe, and I have my fingers crossed for her to win the Oscar. If she loses, I can’t be held accountable for my actions. Anna Hathaway has proven you can bounce back from anything. She went from Mia Thermopolis, Princess of Genovia with frizzy and curly hair, to Fantine, a character that she had to cut her hair and diet intensely for. Anne Hathaway is truly royalty.
P.S. Being a disney princess is NOT something to necessarily “bounce back from,” when you’re starring beside Julie Andrews. I would take that gig ANYDAY.

2) Jennifer Lawrence
Jennifer Lawrence got her break in X-Men: First Class and worldwide attention for her role as Katniss. Lawrence has only had great roles, right? Wrong. While Jennifer Lawrence might be nominated for her spectacular performance in Silver Linings Playbook (and she was previously nominated for Winter’s Bone), she hasn’t always been in movies that got such critical acclaim. Lawrence was in a horror film called House At The End Of The Street. We still love her. It’s not like she was in Jennifer’s Body.

Seth Mcfarlane is our Oscar’s host this year on February 24. During last nights Super Bowl, he released a new promo for the awards show in which he parodied James Bond. Now, people take James Bond very seriously but I promise it was not offensive. Funny enough, Pierce Brosnan showed in the promo instead of Daniel Craig. Not complaining. Few people are as dapper as Brosnan. Oh Pierce Brosnan… Oh wait. The promo wasnt about Pierce Brosnans unfair good looks, it was about the Oscars. Right.
Mcfarlane released another promo beforehand where he parodied Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho. What iconic movie do you think Seth Mcfarlane should parody in his next Oscar’s promo?

Anne Hathaway’s Oscar campaigning for her role in Les Miserables may be getting on some people’s nerves having won a string of awards including the SAG, a Critic’s Choice Award and a Golden Globe. Performing awkward and super chipper awards’ speeches, it has become a little too obvious that Hathaway wants the Oscar REALLY, REALLY BADLY.
While I can’t deny how brilliant she was in Fantine (I mean she cut her hair and sang live in one take, bitches!!), this parody really knocks the ball out of the park. Reminding the Academy one last time why she MUST win at the 85th Academy Awards, I present to you…The Anne Hathaway “For Your Consideration” video.
Fresh off a Golden Globe-nominated performance in Django Unchained, Leonardo DiCaprio is now thinking about taking a break.
“I am a bit drained,” DiCaprio told German publication Bild. ”I’m now going to take a long, long break. I’ve done three films in two years and I’m just worn out.”
But rather than spending his time in the Caribbean basking in the sunlight, the actor plans to put his efforts into changing the quality of our planet.
“I would like to improve the world a bit,” he said. “I will fly around the world doing good for the environment.”
I respect pretty much every role Leonardo’s been given, but this is a well-deserved break. After countless snubbings by the Academy who failed to nominate him in J. Edgar, Titanic and Django Unchained, I can’t really blame him at all!!
He will win his Oscar one day. And when that day comes, I just know that I’ll be saying this:
If any of you have watched any of the Best Picture nominees for the Oscars this year, then you will definitely giggle at these slightly-modified movie posters.
Changing the titles of films such as Life of Pi, Beasts of the Southern Wild and Silver Linings Playbook these posters certainly display a lot of truth. Because honestly, we will never forget Ben Affleck for his roles in Daredevil AND Gigli. (via collegehumor)
While the Academy Awards may be old news by now, this guy certainly deserves an Oscar.
Paying tribute to all of the Academy’s 75 Best Supporting Acress winners in the span of five minutes, YouTube user The Doomsday Diaries does his best to reenact all the Oscar-winning performances in the acting category he favours the most.
“Some of you may know that Best Supporting Actress is my favorite category,” he says in the video. “If I could, I would make love to every single one of those women!”
From Gale Sondergaard, who won in 1936 for “Anthony Adverse”, to 2011′s winner Melissa Leo for her performance in “The Fighter”, this guy is dead-on with the impressions.
Angelina Jolie’s right leg was one of the most interesting things at the Oscars on Sunday night. Well, that and J Lo’s nipple. Both of them now have their own Twitter feeds, though @AngiesRightLeg has over 33,000 followers to @JLosNipple’s weak 4900. Not that it’s a competition or anything.
And if you haven’t heard already, the new thing is legbombing. It’s all the rage.
Legbombing reminds me of Portlandia’s Put a Bird on It but this time with the provocative leg lamp from A Christmas Story. And you can really put Angie’s leg on anything to spiff it up: postcards, album covers, Tom Cruise. It doesn’t even have to be artistic at all. You can just plop it in, but you get bonus points for a cleverly crafted legbomb.
These album covers have all sneakily been legbombed by PopHunter.

Miley Cyrus doesn’t want
a tweeter TheCyrusSlut to get away with posting death threats on her wall and nor should she. Sure, Twitter is supposed to be a forum for open exchange but that doesn’t give someone the right to threaten a life as easily as they would wish a friend happy birthday.
The 19-year-old singer and actress received the threats as she was headed to the 20th annual Elton John AIDS Foundation Academy Awards viewing party on Sunday. The hateful tweets have since been deleted but Miley’s backlash is still posted: “U have nothing better 2 do than hate? That saddens me. Im surrounded by love Im sorry 4 whatever happened 2 make u so bitter,” Miley wrote. “I won’t tolerate someone telling me 2 die. I think Twitter needs to take some responsibility and make it a safe environment!”
Loving or hating Miley is your thing but online bullying — especially threatening a life — is something else completely. Celebrities reluctantly accept a lot of criticism from haters but defending their life is not part of their qualifications.
Where do you draw the line with celebrities? Do you think accepting hateful comments is just “part of the job?”
Wes Anderson’s new creative (and probably lucrative) outlet is to direct Hyundai car commercials. And they’re actually pretty good. Not that we would expect anything less from the indie filmmaker, but generally I find commercials are interchangeable with “bathroom breaks.” These are more than watchable.
The two ads, for Hyundai Azera SUV, premiered at the Oscars and have a recognizable Anderson feel. Little did I know that Anderson has directed commercials in the past, including one for Stella Artois beer, AT&T and American Express.
Anderson’s new movie Moonrise Kingdom, with Bruce Willis, Bill Murray and Jason Schwartzman will be out in late May.
Talk to My Car
At the “California casual” Independent Spirit Awards — or as it’s better known, the cheap award show before the Oscars — Seth Rogen poked fun at Chris Brown.
Among jokes about Martha Marcy May Marlene and Drive, he burned Brett Ratner for being fired as producer of the Oscars. Ratner was recently fired for using the word “fag” during a Q&A session for his film Tower Heist. “You say a few hateful things, they don’t let you within a few hundred yards of the Oscars,” said Rogen. Then he recommended Ratner look to the Grammys because you can “beat the shit out of a nominee and they ask you to perform twice at the Grammys.”
Ouch! You know the world isn’t ready to forgive you when the entire entertainment industry is making fun of you — not just musically minded shows but movie award shows too. Although one nameless woman isn’t too happy about the joke, most of the audience erupted in laughter.
Brown continues to make headlines — whether it’s for award disses or his remix with Rihanna — but I’m sick of hearing about him. It kind of seems like we’re just validating his behaviour at this point by giving him more attention. But still, you have to admit Seth Rogen was funny! Oh, and if you want to fast-forward to the joke, it’s around 5:22.
Not sure if you caught the
sn ooze-fest Oscars last night but the best parts of the opening monologue included a romantic kiss between a suave George Clooney and an unconscious Billy Crystal, and later an appearance from Justin Bieber. The pop star’s presence was apparently Crystal’s way of drawing in the 18 to 24-year-old demographic.
The sketch, which parodies Woody Allen’s Midnight In Paris, had Bieber chumming with
Billy Crystal Sammy Davis Junior on their way to kill Hitler. The tux-wearing singer said to Crystal: “What’s up? I’m here to get you the 18-24 demographic. So how long do you want me to sit here for?” Then he gazed in the distance for a grand total of 15 seconds.
The Oscars are finally trying to do something to draw in a younger audience.
Did it work for you or did it turn you away?
If swear words are your favourite part of any movie, then this “profanity reel” will pretty much bring you up to speed with all the angst in this year’s Best Picture Oscar nominees.
“You selfish butthead,” “shithouse crazy” and “sourpus” are the most PG words (mostly from the Help) and they just get worse from there.
It makes me think that someone has a little bit too much time on their hands. I mean, they had to keep track of all the swear words in every nominated film, go back, cut it and make it flow together.
