4So How About Those SAG Awards?

And hey, how about Anne Hathaway‘s dress? We’ll get into the fashion in a little bit, but if you thought I could wait one more minute to talk about Anne Hathaway’s dress, you’re dead wrong. Seriously, just look at that thing. A friend texted me last night and asked if I was watching the show (I wasn’t, I was playing with my cats), and then told me that I absolutely needed to check out Anne’s dress, because my love of tulle is widely known in my circle of friends. I got excited, but I should have known better. Anne Hathaway can rarely dress herself, and last night was no exception. Hot. Ass. Mess.

Oh, but the awards! Yes, let’s talk about the actual awards! Here’s a list of winners:

MOVIES

Actor: Daniel Day-Lewis, “Lincoln”

Actress: Jennifer Lawrence, “Silver Linings Playbook”

Supporting actor: Tommy Lee Jones, “Lincoln”

Supporting actress: Anne Hathaway, “Les Miserables”

Stunt ensemble: “Skyfall”

TELEVISION:

Actor in a movie or miniseries: Kevin Costner “Hatfields & McCoys”

Actress in a movie or miniseries: Julianne Moore, “Game Change”

Actor in a drama series: Bryan Cranston, “Breaking Bad”

Actor in a comedy series: Alec Baldwin, “30 Rock”

Actress in a comedy series: Tina Fey, “30 Rock”

Drama series cast: “Downton Abbey”

Comedy series cast: “Modern Family”

Stunt ensemble: “Game of Thrones”

Life Achievement: Dick Van Dyke

Thoughts?  Here are some of mine: Anne Hathaway is definitely winning that Oscar, and while she definitely deserves it, I just wish she’d give her ego a minute to chill. Lincoln is going to do super well, obviously, and I think Daniel Day-Lewis has that Best Actor Oscar on lock. I also think Jennifer Lawrence actually has a pretty good shot too, which would be amazing. I don’t know, guys, I’m just super psyched for the Oscars.

Oh, and one more thing. I want to show you Dick Van Dyke accepting his Lifetime Achievement award:

Dick Van Dyke is just the best, isn’t he?

2Chris Brown Assaulted Frank Ocean Last Night

From TMZ:

Chris Brown was involved in an all-out brawl with Frank Ocean Sunday night, and sources connected with Chris insist Ocean started it.

Chris was at Westlake Studio in the L.A. area listening to one of the artists he represents.  The sources say as Chris went to leave, Frank Ocean and his crew blocked Chris from leaving. The sources say Frank said, “This is my studio, this is my parking spot.”

We’re told Chris went to shake Frank’s hand … and that’s when one of Frank’s people attacked Chris.  Sources connected with Chris say one of Chris’ friends jumped in front and hit Frank’s friend.

Sources connected with Chris say Frank then came at Chris … Chris pushed him away and they started brawling.

Later, they added this update:

Police have cleared the scene. We’re told Chris Brown was not there when officers arrived — but they did speak to Frank Ocean. At this point … we’re told no one wants to press charges, and no arrests have been made.

And then this one:

Cops say they will continue to investigate and want to speak with Chris Brown.  They refer to Ocean as “the victim” because he’s the one who stuck around and spoke with police.  Ocean said the fight started over a parking space (how L.A.) and Brown punched him.  There were 6 people involved in the fight.

Yeah, no. This whole story is bogus. Not the updates, after the police became involved, but the original story. Note that it all comes from “sources connected to Chris,” and those details about how Frank Ocean started it and Chris just wanted to shake his hand. There is absolutely no way that that’s how this went down, and no one can make me believe otherwise.

But hey, do you think this could get this probation revoked? Because, you know, he’s on probation for assaulting Rihanna. Probably not, but I can still dream of justice, right?

16Love It or Leave It: Rihanna Doesn’t Even Care Anymore

Note: that picture up there is not the photo I want you to love or leave. That’s just my current favorite picture of Rihanna, and I thought it went nicely with the idea that she doesn’t even care anymore.

But honestly, she hasn’t cared for a long, long time. We all know that. It’s just that now she’s wearing sheer dresses that show off her thong and nipple rings.

It’s NSFW, you guys. Lady nipples always are.

18The REAL Reason Why Haylor Is No More

That caught your attention, didn’t it? Otherwise I’m sure you would have been like “another Taylor Swift story, are you serious?” But because this is the REAL reason why Taylor and Harry Styles broke up, you can’t resist, right?

WAIT. Don’t go yet! Even if you’re sick of hearing about Taylor Swift, you’ll want to hear this. I promise.

Ok, here’s the reason: Harry Styles is not circumcised. That’s it. He’s uncircumcised, and Taylor didn’t like it. She kept talking about his foreskin, and even after he “made it clear he had no intention of changing anything,” she “never missed the chance to poke fun or make a comment.” She even told him that he should get a circumcision. He ignored her at first, but then she brought it up one too many times, and he was out.

(By the way, this story is from the National Enquirer. There’s a solid chance this isn’t true. But don’t crush my dreams.)

This bitch. She would make fun of a dude’s junk right to his face, wouldn’t she? And she would also tell her boyfriend of two weeks that he needed to get circumcised. Just think about that. Just think about the gall that would take. Seriously, think about it. Maybe if you have a new boyfriend who happens to be in the same way, maybe just drop that line during your next date. Poke fun at it in the bedroom. See how it goes over!

But hey: this, this right here, is why I can’t quit Taylor Swift. If I didn’t obsessively read every single thing I can about her, then I would miss out on gems like this. And then where would we be?

5Jennifer Lawrence Rubbed Her Butt Against Some Rocks And Offended Everyone

A photo of Jennifer Lawrence

Sorry, but I think that might be the best headline that’s ever been written. Except I’m not sorry, because the magic has nothing to do with me and everything to do with Jennifer Lawrence, the wonderful creature who rubbed her butt against some rocks in the first place.

Ok, let’s set the scene. Jennifer is in Hawaii – Oahu, specifically – shooting Catching Fire. She has to wear a wet suit. Her ass starts to get itchy. She scratches it, but the itching persists. She rubs her ass against one of the rocks to relieve the itching.

The problem? Those rocks are considered sacred. Jennifer Lawrence scratched herself on a sacred rock, and now she could be cursed.

Here, let’s just let her tell the story in her own words:

“We got to shoot in the most amazing places. There was one place that was sacred rocks, so there was a meeting in the morning before I got there, (that) I didn’t know about, but apparently there were certain ways that you were supposed to sit on the rocks because they were sacred. And we had these horrible wet suits on and my butt started itching and just nothing could really get it, so I started rubbing my butt on one the rocks.

“You know when (it’s) like nothing can satisfy that itch? I was trying everything and I started doing it and all the camera guys started (gasping). And then this huge stone starts tumbling down the hill and they were like, ‘That’s her fault, it’s sacred rocks!’ And I didn’t want to go ask one of the (local) people there,… ‘How bad is that?’ So I might still be cursed.”

If that’s not the best story you’ve ever heard, then you need to tell me what is the best story you’ve ever heard. Immediately. Bonus points if the story includes animal pictures or hilarious GIFs.

5Anne Hathaway Is Already Writing Her Oscars Speech

A photo of Anne Hathaway

Let me kick this off by mentioning that this story is from Star magazine. If you didn’t know, a lot of things that Star prints are not true. But some of them are! And I think that this story is one of the true things. At least a little.

Anne Hathaway really, really wants that Oscar for Les Miserables. We already know that. And even though she did a phenomenal job in the movie, and even though she definitely deserves it, I think she’s going a little far with her campaigning.

The story is that she is working with a team of writers so that her acceptance speech will be perfect. Oh, and that she’s turned her New York apartment into her “rehearsal stage,” where she runs through her speech, tries on a variety of dresses, and practices her red carpet interviews. And while that does seem a little crazy, is it too crazy for Anne?

According to Anne’s rep, yes, yes it is:

“It’s all rubbish. She has not practiced a speech nor is she working with a team of writers. It’s all 100 percent fabricated. Also, she hasn’t been back to New York for the past two weeks and probably won’t be there before Oscars, so it’s beyond ridiculous to suggest she turned her NY apartment into a rehearsal space.”

I don’t know, I think part of this story is true. I think she’s definitely started working on her speech already, and I wouldn’t be surprised if she hired writers to help. Even rehearsing the speech sounds plausible, and it certainly wouldn’t be crazy if she’s already started looking for the right dress. But something about her rehearsing interviews just crosses the line for me. Something about that just takes the whole thing to the next level.

But what do you think Anne Hathaway is doing right now?
