I’m sure you’ve seen the above photo about 800 times by now. Ellen DeGeneres decided to take her hosting duties at last night’s ceremony to the next level by getting together some of the biggest names in Hollywood to take the ultimate selfie! We’ve got a little Jennifer Lawrence, some Meryl Streep, Bradley Cooper holding the camera, Lupita Nyong’o and Angelina Jolie, Jared Leto struggling to fit in the frame, a little Kevin Spacey, Brad Pitt, Lupita’s brother, Peter… it’s classic.
There’s not really much to say about this, other than that I really like this and everyone is so handsome/beautiful and that the Oscars seem like a nightmare that I would never attend because getting dressed up to that level is like, my worst nightmare. The end.

Anyway, check out these looks and make your picks for BEST, WORST, and WTF look of the night. Mine are at the bottom. Personally, I felt everyone played it a little on the boring side.

If you’re like most of the world, you saw and loved the second installment of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire and you’re looking forward to the third (and fourth!) film. Well, you’ve got less than a year to wait and now we’ve got a teaser poster to keep us going!
As you can see, the Mockingjay poster reveals… absolutely nothing and is in no way exciting, but it’s the official start of promotion for the film, which is pretty exciting. I know, I know, we’re all getting a little disillusioned with having Jennifer Lawrence shoved down our throats nonstop, but come on – she’s brilliant as Katniss. This is gonna be great!

The SAG Awards is probably the most “meh” of all awards shows, am I right? Still, that’s no reason to ignore the fashion. Why? Because it’s fun. Here are some looks from the 20th Annual SAG Awards. Let’s go through and pick the looks for BEST, WORST, and WTF.
For more awards show fashion, check out the Golden Globes Awards post.
I don’t think Amanda Peet knows how to dress anymore. This is something I’d expect from Chloë Sevigny, and I don’t even know if she could pull this off. It’s just so…fug. I’m sorry, I know “fug” is played-out, but I cannot summon any other words to accurately describe this dour mess.

David O. Russell is a fantastic director and has worked on so many great films, so it’s a shame to see that he’s such a mindless fucking idiot in his day-to-day life. You see, our pal David worked with Jennifer Lawrence on The Silver Linings Playbook (great film) and American Hustle (haven’t watched yet, but also probably great) and knows how hectic her life is, especially since the Hunger Games franchise is still going. She’s literally always working, you see – almost like slaves!
Here’s what he said last week:
“I personally think they should give her a bit of breathing room over there because they’re printing money.
“But she’s a very alive person. I’ll tell you what it is about that girl – talk about 12 years of slavery, that’s what the franchise is. I’m going to get in so much trouble for saying that.”
I literally have so few words for that, that I’m not going to say any. I think it speaks for itself. A movie star’s hectic life of making millions of dollars is not IN ANY WAY, SHAPE OR FORM anything like slaves being beaten, forced to work in insane conditions, raped, separated from their families and SO MANY OTHER HORRORS. He also clearly knew he shouldn’t have been saying it, and yet he did it anyway. Ah, the privilege of being a rich white man. What a wonderful world!
In any case, I guess all the shit he’s getting finally got to him, because Russell has decided to issue an apology that doesn’t sound at all heartfelt and really kinda means nothing:
“Clearly, I used a stupid analogy in a poor attempt at humor. I realized it the minute I said it and I’m truly sorry.”
Ah yes, it’s always hilarious when white people joke about slavery. What a knee-slapper! Christ, what’s wrong with people’s brains? Let’s just take a scene from your own movie:
