CRAZY RICH ASIAN GEMMA CHAN IS BEST DRESSED AND PAIN-FREE!

Crazy Rich Asians star Gemma Chan is our pick for Best Dressed at the Oscars for SO many reasons! Start with the hot pink color – and we love the fluttery collar framing her face. The pleating and detailing of the layers of fabric is luscious and it goes on forever. This modern gown has NO restrictions! It’s not tight anywhere, just graceful and feminine. No need for industrial strength spanx or other compressive underwear or tape – Gemma actually looks comfortable – a look you rarely see at the Oscars! We would give anything to see a photo of Gemma (and other actresses in bouffant gowns) as they are SITTING in the theater. Where do they put all that skirt – do they roll it up on their laps – stuff half on their date’s lap? Inquiring minds want to know…

JASON MOMOA AND LISA BONET: CUTEST COUPLE IN WORST OSCAR OUTFITS

It goes without saying that we love Jason Momoa and Lisa Bonet – they are adorable and one of our FAVORITE Hollywood couples. But this year’s Oscars didn’t bring out the best in them. They really TRIED with color coordination – pink would have been hot – dreary mauve, not so much. Actually their outfits both look homemade in terms of fit and design – Jason’s ill-fitting velvet suit is STRAINING and too tight for that big frame of his. Lisa’s dress is a little too thrift shop looking. A for effort, but F for result.

KEVIN HART: THE REAL REASON HE QUIT THE OSCARS

We were flabbergasted when we first heard that Kevin Hart was chosen to host the Oscars – because his humor has always been rather rough and macho compared to previous hosts. When he said he had DREAMED of hosting, we warmed to the idea and decided the Oscars would be a lot more exciting with a controversial host – and maybe attract the younger viewers they want. HOW could the Academy invite Hart to host without researching his work? Kevin’s comments from years ago came back to haunt him and rather than apologize, he refused the job. We think he REALLY quit because it finally dawned on him how complex (in many ways) hosting the Oscars could be, and it was simply OVERWHELMING!

THANK YOU, EMMA STONE

Emma Stone didn’t let a few late Oscar parties keep her from missing her LAX flight out of town this morning. She was last year’s Oscar winning Best Actress and created quite a stir when she presented the Best Director award at the Oscars last night. She said “It is the vision of a director that turns a movie into a work of art – these four men and Greta Gerwig created their own masterpieces this year.” It was a subtle but effective reminder of the constant absence of women the category. Men NEED to be reminded of this as often as possible until changes are made. People on Twitter later criticized Emma for being “dismissive” of the male nominees, but haven’t women in Hollywood (and other places) been dismissed for far too long? Nice work, Emma!

OSCAR NOMINATIONS: THE ACADEMY DOESN’T ALWAYS GET IT RIGHT

Let’s talk about the Oscar nominations that were announced today. We have a bone to pick with the Academy regarding Best Picture. It’s a GOOD thing that up to 10 films can be nominated – but some of the best movies were left OUT! The Big Sick, The Florida Project, I, Tonya, and yes, The Disaster Artist, were snubbed in favor of the less entertaining and far more PRETENTIOUS all-male Dunkirk, Darkest Hour, and Phantom Thread. (And nobody loves Daniel Day-Lewis more than we do!) We think (and hope) that Three Billboards and The Shape of Water will win most of the awards, but we’re also rooting for the swoon-worthy Call Me By Your Name, Lady Bird, and Get Out. Allison Williams deserved a Best Supporting nomination for Get Out, but there were just too many great female performances this year. Best Actor nominations are disappointing, except for Timothee Chalamet – women really have an advantage this year and none too soon.

MEET FAYE DUNAWAY’S “COMEDY COACH”

After insisting on being the one to name the Best Picture winner while paired as a presenter with Warren Beatty at the Oscars, Faye Dunaway ignored his hints and blurted the wrong name. During the melee that followed, Warren actively tried to examine and explain the mistake while Faye made a hasty retreat and refused to talk – leaving him holding the bag. Not very supportive. This reminded our friend Beth Lapides, who runs an alternative comedy show called Uncabaret on Sundays, of a story one of her comics told. His name is Mike McDonald, and he was Faye Dunaway’s “comedy coach” for a short time. You MUST listen to this – click below!

WHAT POSSESSED HALLE BERRY TO WEAR THIS AWFUL WIG TO THE OSCARS?

Halle Berry is lucky that the Best Picture mistaken identity episode occurred at the conclusion of the award show – otherwise everybody would be talking about her wig! She wins WORST HAIR at the event – hands down – and we pity everyone who had to sit behind her at the show! This wig was stiff as a board- didn’t move when she did, and sat on her head like a hat. Halle’s dress onstage was lovely but she changed before she and her WIG went to the Vanity Fair party (above.) Why she didn’t take the WIG off when she had the chance, is a mystery.

ASHLEY GRAHAM: MAYBE THE WORST-DRESSED IN OSCAR HISTORY!

We went into SHOCK when we turned to the E! channel on Oscar night and found their panel of three women discussing Oscar fashion. Dead center was plus size Sports Illustrated model Ashley Graham looking like a cheezy stripper. Her tiny expository dress bordered on the obscene and it was ironic that she was observing and criticizing OTHER women’s red carpet fashion! Kris Jenner sat right NEXT to her on the panel and tried very hard NOT to look at her glaring exposure. We hoped she would make some sort of crack but she probably was afraid of offending plus size women! Ashley’s lapse in taste has NOTHING to do with her size, but her appearance was a huge step BACK for larger women.

OSCAR WINNER SPOTLIGHT IS A TRIBUTE TO JOURNALISTS AND FREEDOM OF THE PRESS

What fun it was on the red carpet at the Academy Awards this afternoon! We appeared again this year gossiping about the Oscars for ZDF German TV. The adorable Florian Weiss hosted the segment and conducted the interview while handsome cameraman Thomas Jacobi filmed the proceedings. We were surrounded by interviews being done in every language imaginable. One thing for sure – German people love Hollywood and gossip! We were disappointed that Brooklyn didn’t win Best Picture but we love the winner, Spotlight, because journalists are the heroes for a change.

ALICIA VIKANDER: THE CENTER OF FASHION SHENANIGANS

Every year, as the Oscars approach, it becomes evident that there is ONE actress that all the major designers are DYING to dress. This year, Swedish actress and star of The Danish Girl, Alicia Vikander is THAT girl. The biggest names in Paris have been competing to dress Alicia on Oscar night – and money is no object. Alicia was invited to all the major collections during Paris Fashion week and she and her companions had multiple offers of lavish round trip paid vacations. Some designers offer their entire collection as a thank-you for selecting their dress. Competitive design houses been flying fabulous gowns and fitting people to wherever Alicia is, hoping she will select one of their gowns. These aren’t loans – she can keep whatever she is simply THINKING of wearing. Money changes hands – bribes – maybe. Being this year’s IT girl is certainly fun!

NEW UPDATE CHECK IT OUT - HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT!

  • HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT
    |

    Love him or hate him, this guy is a loudmouth who doesn’t hesitate to tell it like he sees it- but there’s one thing he NEVER talks about: his prostate problem. Long story short: he LEAKS! He likes to project an image of macho virility, but under his custom made suits are custom made “diapers.” He’s VERY self-conscious and has absorbent but undetectable “panty liners” sewn into all his underwear, to avoid wet spots. Thanks to his arrogant behavior, he has more than a few enemies and he’s terrified his secret will be exposed and he’ll be forever ridiculed!
