On Day 3 of SXSW, Sunday, director Barry Jenkins recited to an audience in his capacity as keynote speaker the speech he would have read at the Academy Awards, where his film Moonlight won Best Picture in 2017, had that senseless snafu with the envelope, and several esteemed actors being not the quickest on their…
If you watched this year’s Oscars all the way until best actress was announced, you may have come away scratching your head. “I have two words to leave you with tonight,” Frances McDormand, who won the category for her role in Two Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, said in her speech: “Inclusion. Rider.”
Something happened at the Oscars on Sunday night that I have not been able to get out of my head, although I have tried very, very hard. When I close my eyes? All I see is Ansel Elgort, AKA Ansolo, AKA DJ Ansolo, shooting a hot dog out of a much larger hot dog.
For Women’s History Month, Jezebel and The Root are partnering for JezeRoot, a series that focuses on women of color, domestic workers, and sex workers.
Jay-Z and Beyoncé hosted a huge bash for Mary J. Blige after the 2018 Oscars, and apparently, my invitation was lost in the mail ... or maybe it was the huge snowstorm that hit the East Coast this weekend that caused the delay. It was a balmy 69 degrees where I live, but there must be a reason I didn’t get an invite.…
TMZ reported on Monday that Rick Ross returned home, where he will continue to receive care, after spending four days at two hospitals.
The Oscars are always a little political, but it’s not often that the awards shine a literal spotlight on an activist in anti-pipeline movement.
The Oscars afterparties are better than the ceremony itself, both fashionally and candid-photo-wise, because everyone gets to take off their stiff gowns and replace them with... slightly less stiff gowns.
Both Get Out and The Shape of Water are great films about outsiders, made by people from non-white backgrounds. But, Get Out is a lot less comforting, which is probably why it didn’t win Best Picture last night.
This piece of Oscars journalism, reported by the New York Times’s Cara Buckley, took me on a ride so exhilarating, surprising, and relieving that you’d think it was a long, 3,500-word story in the Arts section. But no, it was captured in a single, perfectly detailed tweet.
“I have two words to leave you with tonight,” Frances McDormand said while accepting her Academy Award for Best Actress last night. “Inclusion. Rider.”
After husband-and-wife team Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez picked up their best original song Oscars for Coco’s “Remember Me,” he is now a freaking double EGOT. Congrats also to whomever will build the beautiful custom cabinets to hold this family’s absurd collection of awards!
The Oscars are trying to be woke AF this year, and it almost feels sincere.
Jordan Peele, James Ivory, and Allison Janney all took home Oscars from their night at the 90th Annual Academy Awards—unfortunately, though, not the Jet Ski. Here is your complete list of winners.
Tonight is the night we’ve been dreaming of, when Hollywood gets to grab a metaphorical peach and engage in a little self-love. The Academy has decided to play itself all over again this year by reportedly having Faye Dunaway and Warren Beatty present despite you-know-what. Haha so funny! What could go wrong!
As the stars descend on the red carpet and some even have pointedly delayed conversations with alleged abuser Ryan Seacrest, The Rally Against Rape Culture/#OscarsSoComplicit protest is going down on Hollywood and LaBrea. If we have learned one thing this awards season, it’s that it’s difficult to turn an…
Make no mistake: Just because you don’t see a sea of diaphanous black gowns and sharp, black tuxes at the Oscars red carpet this Sunday doesn’t mean the Time’s Up movement didn’t show up.
Ryan Seacrest will cling to tonight’s red carpet despite recent allegations that he serially harassed and then assaulted a former stylist, which an investigation by E! deemed inconclusive and Seacrest denied. Kelly Ripa supported him in a roundabout on-air proclamation that he is a “privilege to work with.”
