Lady Gaga Says She and Bradley Cooper Are Artists, Not Lovers 

Lady Gaga Says She and Bradley Cooper Are Artists, Not Lovers 

Lady Gaga paid Jimmy Kimmel Live a visit Wednesday night to confirm that she and Bradley Cooper are not in love, despite the horny energy of their Oscars performance Sunday night. “First of all, quite frankly, social media is the toilet of the internet. What it has done to pop culture is abysmal. Yes, people saw love and and guess what? That’s what we wanted you to see,” she told Kimmel....

Kevin Hart Might Host the Oscars After All, Thanks to Ellen DeGeneres

Kevin Hart Might Host the Oscars After All, Thanks to Ellen DeGeneres

Well, that was fast. On Friday, in what Variety describes as an in-depth forthcoming interview on Ellen, Kevin Hart sat down with Ellen DeGeneres to reveal that he’s still considering hosting the 2019 Oscars, after a few of his homophobic tweets resurfaced . Hart was offered the hosting gig on December 5, 2018. Within hours, his tweets made the rounds online, resulting in his stepping down...

The Oscars Did a Little Bit of Good

The Oscars Did a Little Bit of Good

The Oscars ditched having a host this year and instead decided to have a little bit of taste. Despite some disappointing choices (Green Book?!?) the night did contain some unexpected victories, recognizing some of the nominees making the most compelling art, if not just the splashiest. Maybe things are changing a little; in some categories, it seemed like the Academy challenged its white-guy...

Mahershala Ali Should Always Wear Glasses, Even If He Doesn't Need Them

Mahershala Ali Should Always Wear Glasses, Even If He Doesn't Need Them

As I watched Mahershala Ali accept the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for his role in your parent’s favorite movie, Green Book, it occurred to me that Mahershala Ali is the only man alive for whom the rule about wearing glasses if you do not need them to see does not apply.

Mahershala Ali is an objectively handsome man, but there is something about this silver aviator frame that...

Oh Wow, It's Every Gown and Tux On the Oscars Red Carpet!

Oh Wow, It's Every Gown and Tux On the Oscars Red Carpet!

It’s the second-most exciting red carpet of the year, after the Met extravaganze: The night when a dazzling coterie of extreme A-Listers walk the plank of glory or defeat; into the room that will elevate their careers (and salaries) for the rest of time (or at least a respectable couple of years), or the room that will blow apart their dreams to smithereens like that fucken watermelon with...

Dirtcast Would Love to Host the Oscars!

Awards season is nearly over, there is no host for the Academy Awards, and we would love to volunteer our skills, time, and energy to host said awards, thanks so much for asking!

Hollywood Is Pissed the Oscars Will Hand Out Awards During Commercials 

Hollywood Is Pissed the Oscars Will Hand Out Awards During Commercials 

The 2019 Oscars is shaping up to be a truly spectacular train wreck. In addition to the fact that there’s no official host , it was reported that former major category winners would not be presenting to the new winners in favor of “bigger talent,” a move that was quickly fixed after actors like Allison Janney spoke out. And now Hollywood is pissed after the Academy announced that certain...

Sandra Bullock's Terrifying Oscar Host Idea Is My Favorite Yet

Sandra Bullock's Terrifying Oscar Host Idea Is My Favorite Yet

The Academy is understandably scrambling to find a host for the 2019 Oscar Awards, and Sandra Bullock has one terrifying idea. It’s so sick, I’m not even sure I can print it here. I’m getting full-body chills just thinking about what the show would be like if this were the strategy the Academy went with, and it’s also the best idea I’ve heard yet.

In an interview with the Associated Press,...

Looks Like Nobody Might Be Hosting the Oscars Ceremony

Looks Like Nobody Might Be Hosting the Oscars Ceremony

Hosting the Oscars is a hard job. You need a) squeaky clean tweets, b) a boring, PG-13 sense of humor that won’t offend any advertisers, nominees, guests, etc. and c) skin as thick as rubber, considering almost everyone will think you’re doing an awful job. At least you get paid a lot of money, right? Wrong! Jimmy Kimmel only got paid $15,000 for the gig as of 2016, which is far too low for a...
