Entire Board of French Film Awards Resigns After Giving Roman Polanski Film 12 Nominations

Entire Board of French Film Awards Resigns After Giving Roman Polanski Film 12 Nominations

On Thursday, the board that is responsible for overseeing the César Awards (the French equivalent to the Oscars) announced that every single one of the 21 board members would be jointly resigning after the upcoming awards. While this decision might seem shocking, it comes after significant controversy surrounding the César Academy board’s practices—and the decision to give Roman Polanski’s...

Natalie Portman Admits She Hasn't Worked With Enough Women Directors

Natalie Portman Admits She Hasn't Worked With Enough Women Directors

At the 2020 Academy Awards, Natalie Portman rolled up in a cape embroidered with the names of all the women directors who weren’t nominated that night and really should have been: Lorene Scafaria, Lulu Wang, Greta Gerwig, etc. I personally thought it was a cute, benign gesture, certainly not as powerful as actually just working with more women directors in the future which, as Rose McGowan...

Don't Worry, Eminem Is Also Not Really Sure Why He Was at the Oscars

Don't Worry, Eminem Is Also Not Really Sure Why He Was at the Oscars

Arguably the most unexpected moment of the 2020 Academy Awards—next to Parasite winning Best Picture and becoming the first non-English language film to do so—was Eminem hopping on stage to perform his hit “Lose Yourself,” an 18-year-old song for which he won an Oscar 17 years ago. It was confounding and embarrassing, and, as I assumed, the result of some really clever and generous...

The Stars Wore Gold and Silver at Vanity Fair's Annual Oscars Party

No one dresses better than Tracee Ellis Ross—that is a general rule of thumb in Hollywood. So it makes sense that her gorgeous gilded gown set the tone for Vanity Fair’s annual fancy-as-shit Oscars party, with the best looks dripped up in precious metals. Let’s check in on a few of the best!

Alicia Silverstone is a willing chandelier, and Diane Kruger is a platinum record; Miguel is joining...

Greta Gerwig and Her Green-Clad Coven Stormed the Oscars Afterparties

Greta Gerwig and Her Green-Clad Coven Stormed the Oscars Afterparties

In her hit song “Best Friends,” former kid pop star Sophia Grace announced: “I’m your number one girl, I’m your best friend/And I’ll always be there, right ‘til the end/Sophia Grace got your back, just know that/And that’s the reason why I’m rappin’ on this hot track.” And while I cannot verify if this is true or not, I’m almost positive that Greta Gerwig and her own best friends listened to...

Cast Kristen Wiig and Maya Rudolph in Some Dramas!

Cast Kristen Wiig and Maya Rudolph in Some Dramas!

Actors Maya Rudolph and Kristen Wiig love acting. They’re actors! Of course, they love acting and being in movies that allow them to act and be actors. At the Oscars tonight, the two treated us to some of their non-comedic acting abilities, because again—acting is super fun! (Did I make it clear enough how much these two really love acting?)

ABC, Motion Picture Academy Spiked a Postpartum Pain Ad From the Oscars Telecast, Calling It 'Too Graphic'

ABC, Motion Picture Academy Spiked a Postpartum Pain Ad From the Oscars Telecast, Calling It 'Too Graphic'

Bodies do not bounce back instantly after giving birth, despite what the movies and cheerful postpartum Instagram posts might lead you to believe. And yet, first-time mothers are often unprepared for the six to 8 weeks it typically takes to recover from vaginal birth, probably in part because major networks think it’s “too graphic” to talk about.

Deadline reports that the above ad,...

We Are Jokers, Not Little Women! It's Your Oscars 2020 Liveblog

Three years ago, Moonlight won Best Picture at the Oscars over La La Land, and it was the best thing in awards-show history. Everything before it and after it has been boring! Anyway, we’re here for the 92nd Annual Academy Awards. The show is once again without a host, and the nominees are once again repetitive: Joker! (It’s a joke!) Once Upon a Time in Hollywood! (It wasn’t a good time!)...

Finally, It Is Every Beautiful and Terrible Look From the Oscars Red Carpet

Finally, It Is Every Beautiful and Terrible Look From the Oscars Red Carpet

In year that has barely begun and is already tragically disappointing at best, harrowing at worst, the Oscars carpet fashion desperately needs to come through: It’s barely February and I’m desperate for the kind of escapism everyone’s most luxurious gowns and glam provides (and the kind of escapism wrought by colossal fuck-ups—PLEASE someone arrive dressed in something ridiculous, we deserve a...
