Michael Shannon watched ‘The Shape of Water’ win Best Picture from a dive bar

TwitterFacebook

Sure, attending the Oscars is a dream come true for many people.

Except perhaps in Hollywood, where it’s just another event that you have to get dressed up and look nice for. 

Michael Shannon, who plays the terrifying colonel Richard Strickland in The Shape of Water, surely would’ve been invited to the Oscars on Sunday, given how many nominations the film received. 

Instead, Shannon decided to spend it at a dive bar. Specifically Chicago’s legendary Old Town Ale House, where he watched the Best Picture win on the TV with no sound, but with the subtitles on. Read more…

Google spruiks Assistant with Chrissy Teigen and John Legend

TwitterFacebook

Just like you, celebrities find the small things in life difficult.

It’s something that’s highlighted in a series of ads for Google Assistant, released during the Oscars on Monday.

The first of the ads features John Legend and Chrissy Teigen, trying to deal with the annoying task of searching for a show on TV, convincing that you should “make Google do it,” the ad’s tagline.

Legend actually sings in one of the ads too, albeit about the time it takes for Teigen to find a TV show.

Then here’s NBA star Kevin Durant forgetting to remember his grocery list. Read more…

Jennifer Lawrence, Jodie Foster will reportedly replace Casey Affleck to present Best Actress

TwitterFacebook

Jennifer Lawrence and Jodie Foster will present the Best Actress category at the Academy Awards Sunday in lieu of Casey Affleck, Variety reports. 

The news comes after nearly a month of speculation as to who would replace Affleck. The Best Actor winner decided not to present at the end of January because he feared he’d become a distraction. 

The Manchester by the Sea star was accused of sexual harassment in two 2010 lawsuits, which mostly went under the radar, until the #MeToo movement shined a spotlight on men with histories of sexual misconduct allegations. Affleck’s publicists have characterized the lawsuits as extortion attempts. The producer and cinematographer of I’m Not Here, Affleck’s 2010 film, are the accusers. Their cases were settled out of court, with no monetary figure disclosed. Read more…

American paparazzi confuse Deepika Padukone with Priyanka Chopra and she isn't amused

TwitterFacebook

They’re both bonafide Bollywood stars. They’re both pursuing Hollywood. They’ve both appeared on the same talk shows. They’ve both attended the Oscars. 

But dear paparazzi, they are NOT the same! 

For the second time, the American media has mistaken Deepika Padukone of xXx: Return of Xander Cage fame with Priyanka Chopra of Quantico fame. 

First, when promoting xXx, which also starred Vin Diesel, and now, at Los Angeles International Airport where shutterbugs lined up to welcome Padukone with chants of “Hi, Priyanka” and “Priyanka, welcome back!” Read more…

Rogue None: Why the Force isn't with Star Wars at the Oscars

TwitterFacebook

As Yoda might put it: awards make not one great. 

That’s about the only consolation for the Rogue One crew in the wake of the 2017 Academy Awards. The movie was nominated in two categories, visual effects and sound mixing. It lost in both — continuing a 33-year streak in which no Star Wars movie has won a single Oscar. 

If you’re a farm boy just in from Tatooine, you might look at the list of winners and conclude that Suicide Squad was a greater success than Rogue One — a billion-dollar international box office hit that has garnered more critical acclaim than almost any other in the Star Wars franchise.  Read more…

Adele is pretty stoked that Emma Stone and Moonlight won big at Oscars

TwitterFacebook

Adele and Emma Stone are BFFs since at least 2015, when they were pictured having dinner together with Jennifer Lawrence in New York.

So when the star of La La Land won a Best Actress Oscar last night, Adele posted a heartwarming homage on Twitter.

It shows Adele in black and white giving a thumbs up to the TV while Stone was doing her acceptance speech.

Adele, fresh from her Album of the Year Grammy, also praised Moonlight, winner of Best Picture after a stunning mix-up:

Ah Emma ❤️
And Moonlight, congratulations so so wonderful ⭐️ pic.twitter.com/u84R9Lwqce

TwitterFacebook

Talk about an upset. Science fiction and fantasy movies haven’t always fared well at the Academy Awards, but within minutes of each other, Suicide Squad and Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them won Oscars for makeup and costume design, respectively.

These are big — and confusing — wins for Warner Bros. and fans of both DC’s comic books and Harry Potter.
