The Oscars are just a few weeks away and, to our pleasure, Hollywood is buzzing with celebs congregating at luncheons, dinners, photo-ops and then some more luncheons and dinners. While browsing through some of the images from these star-studded events, I stumbled upon Amy Adams in a purple dress that made me cringe and disapprovingly shake my head.
Tsk-tsk, Amy… This is not how you strike a pose, unless you are someone’s unmarried aunt in the privacy of your own home on a Sunday afternoon, and you want to throw a last cursory look in the mirror to make sure you haven’t tucked your skirt into the back of your panties (I have done that) before you go downstairs to bake a banana bread. I mean, this dress is so unflattering! Amy has always given me the pleasant vibe of a homely, sweet-natured woman, and I think she’s a brilliant actress, but the dress… no.
Adams did a little better in a lace LBD at the dinner for the Hollywood Reporter 2013 Oscar nominees last night, yet again, something is amiss. Is it the tan platform shoes? I don’t know. Enlighten me.

There have been a handful of entertainment experiences I’ve had in my life that have made me cry out of sheer joy. The first one I can remember happened when I was 15 and my dad took me to see a touring production of Cats: there was an issue with the seating, so a big group of people had to stand off to the side during the opening number before we were seated, and I was just sobbing, I was so happy to be there. The second one happened last year when The Lion King was re-released in theaters. It was during “Circle of Life,” and all the animals just looked so happy, and I could remember when my mom brought home the VHS and my sister and I watched it over and over and over, and I just burst into tears. Then, inexplicably, I was so overjoyed that I cried once again when I saw The Muppets.
It was weird, because watching The Muppet Christmas Carol every Christmas and watching Muppet Babies at my grandma’s house sometimes are the only memories I have of these lovable guys. It wasn’t like they were all that close to my heart or anything, but it was just such an incredibly happy, fun movie that I got overwhelmed with emotion. And that might be lame, but that’s just me, you guys.
I had the same reaction when I rented the movie a couple of months ago, and yes, I cried again when I saw this blooper reel. Come on, look at Jason Segel‘s face! And Amy Adams is so adorable! And Fozzie Bear and Gonzo and oh god, you guys, it’s happening again.
Did anyone else react this way to The Muppets? Please don’t tell me I’m alone in this.

Oh, I don’t care which former pop star shaves her head in a drug riddled frenzy or who starts cutting herself and has to go to rehab today. This is the news of the freakin’ week and it’s only Monday! You guys! The trailer for The Muppets AKA Green with Envy is out!
I’m pretty psyched because it doesn’t look like they’ve completely butchered the spirit of the original movies and it’s, you know, probably one of the greatest franchises of all time.

I first remember noticing Amy in Enchanted. The movie itself was atrocious, but my daughter loved it and it was at least marginally entertaining. It was either watch that, or do dishes. Just for future reference? Dishes? Will always come in last place. Dishes will always lose.
Anyway, I remember thinking that the entire movie was sort of off-kilter, what with Amy’s oddball acting techniques and the movie exec’s seemingly-strange choice for Amy in the lead role, but then I realized I was looking much too deeply into it – it was supposed to be kind of goofy and unconventional, and those two reasons are the reasons I’ve grown to love Adams as I do. That and Night at the Museum 2. That bitch right there was a classic.
Amy is the cover model for the latest issue of Marie Claire, and she sat down with the mag for a pretty hot photo shoot in addition to her interview as well.
Amy on, yes, having sex:
“I did one interview when I was pregnant, and the writer said he thought people would be surprised to know that I had sex. I didn’t know what to say. I was like, ‘Excuse me if it takes a minute to process the fact that you think I’m asexual.’
On choosing pole dancing lessons as her method of losing that extra baby weight:
“Some mom friends said it’s a good way to lose the baby weight. And I’ll do anything to get off of that treadmill.”
On playing a ‘tough bitch’ for her role in The Fighter:
“[People are saying] ‘Amy, you’re finally playing yourself!’ It’s not that she’s like me. It’s just that she’s less naive. My other characters haven’t been tested. She has been through it.”
Check out the photos from the shoot – this is one girl that cleans up pretty well.

The actress got engaged to her boyfriend of six years, actor Darren Legallo.
The couple met in an acting class in 2001.
“He’s really special. I’m really lucky because he’s not competitive with me. He supports and embraces my success as mine. And he has his own goals for himself, but he never makes my success his failure.”
Maybe I need to start taking acting classes!!!
