I’m totally digging that DiC’s favorite, Pharrell Williams was nominated for Best Original Song for “Happy”.  Lord knows, the pretentious, “we discovered Nelson Mandela before YOU PEOPLE did” U2 will more than likely win. That’s ALL Bono needs,  another reason for sunglasses and pomposity. At least Pharrell and his cute no-socks-wearin’ ways will be on the red carpet.

We’ll beat this dead horse discuss our thoughts on who we think will take home Oscar Gold for several weeks. Get your notepads out, y’all, and tell us what you think of this year’s nominees!

(It’s probably Leo’s year. I’ll just throw that one out there.)

Celebrity Halloween Costumes: Best and Worst

Clearly there is no better costume photo from Hollywoodland than Neil Patrick Harris and his fiancé David Burtka, and their two children, Gideon Scott and Harper Grace dressed in their finest Wizard of Oz get-ups.  Seriously. Stinkin’. Cute. Obviously, this is the winner, right?

And, no.  I’m not going to post pictures of the gotdamn Kardashian fame-whores with Kanye all dressed as characters from the Batman films.  No, and hell no.  But fuck me if those idiots were outdone for Worst Costume by none other than everyone’s favorite asshole, Chris Brown.

Yep–it’s exactly what you think it is…

via TMZ:

“For a guy with a history of violence against women … a penchant for destruction … and an explosive temper … it’s no surprise Chris Brown decided to be a Taliban fighter for Halloween.

Brown — sporting a string of fake bullets across his chest — rolled over to Greystone Manor last night … to attend West Hollywood’s biggest Hollywood party … hosted by Rihanna.

Other famous in attendance … Flo Rida, Paris Hilton and U.S. Olympic team superstar Lindsey Vonn … but they all had better costumes.”

We were also treated to this dumb-shit of a Tweet by this dumb shit.

Comments? Leave ’em HERE. I can’t believe I’m the only one grinding her teeth over this…please tell me I’m not.

Forbes Magazine List 10 Highest Paid Actresses in Hollywood. Derrrrp.

"Eff YOU, Theron...I mean, Number FIVE." - Kristen Stewart


This LIST.   I actually get why Sourpuss Stewart is the Number One Highest Paid Actress in Hollywood,  (that’s what is tattooed on her middle finger, obviously).  Twihards seeing that movie over and over and over, PLUS merch? Did Sourpuss pull a Jack Nicholson (as The Joker in Tim Burton’s Batman) and get a crap-load of a percentage in lunchbox sales? I’ll bet she did.

Here’s the full list:

10. Jennifer (Only Good in “Horrible Bosses”) Aniston – $12 million

9. Kristen (Good for Her!) Wiig – $12 million

8. Meryl (We’re ALL So OVER) Streep – $12 million

7. The Sarah Jessica Parker Stables $15 million

The Stables

6. Julia (Also in The Stables) Roberts – $16 million

5. Charlize (“J’Adaaaaaaaaaah”) Theron – $18 million

4. Angelina Bloody Jolie – $20 million

3. Sandra (Did She Even Make a Film Lately?) Bullock – $25 million

2. Cameron (Spinster) Diaz – $34 million

1. KStew (aka “Sourpuss”) – $34.5 million

Congratulations…to some of you.
