On Sunday night, Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy won an Academy Award for Best Documentary Short for A Girl in the River: The Price of Forgiveness. This was notable for several reasons: Obaid-Chinoy already won in 2012 for her movie Saving Face, about Pakistani women who are the victims of acid attacks, becoming the first…
Hey Hollywood, your obsession with breast-y dresses have creeped their way into Nobel Prize winning author Toni Morrison’s purview.
Here's a story straight from a heist film: our heroine Lupita Nyong'o, whose gorgeous pearl-encrusted Calvin Klein gown swept the Oscars, is now no longer in possession of said gown because she has been ROBBED!
Last week in the days leading up to the Academy Awards, Mo'Nique flipped a hypothetical table when she addressed being blackballed in Hollywood after her 2010 Oscar win. Sheryl Lee Ralph, who's my TV mom from Moesha and also Tony-nominated, put in a couple cents about the matter.
Not a single person of color was nominated in any of the acting categories of 2015 Oscars. There also wasn't a single female director, screenwriter or cinematographer nominated. It seems that the response to this—and a few other mishaps—made the Academy finally recognize that they're not hiding their diversity…
Last night's Oscars were a study in not preemptively falling asleep and/or not throwing crap at the TV screen for all the cheap-shot jokes, but at least we had the spectacle of gowns and tuxes, sparkles and luxe fabrics, to distract us from the absolute shitshow. Providing some small consolation for having spent…
Fox News' Stacey Dash thinks Patricia Arquette, winner of the Best Supporting Actress Oscar, should "do her history" before demanding equal rights. Dash will never be in Arquette's position as an award winner so her weighing in is like a mermaid telling me how to walk to work.
Neil Patrick Harris, host of the 2015 Oscars, explained the, er, shapeliness of his peen during last night's show on Live with Kelly and Michael Monday morning and it's all about doubling up. Unfortunately, it was one of the most interesting parts of the 17,000 hour show, which tells you something.
Jimmy Kimmel is back with an Oscars edition of "Lie Witness News," in which innocent passerby are forever memorialized as lying idiots.
Every year, the Oscars "In Memoriam" tribute manages to leave out a few notable names—last year's snubs included Cory Monteith—but it's pretty unbelievable that Elaine Stritch and Joan Rivers, two of the funniest women in show business, weren't given their due last night.
The running joke at Sunday night's Oscars may've been how Selma was snubbed, but John Legend and Common took home the Best Song award for "Glory," the film's theme song.
The music performances at tonight's Oscars have run the gamut from underwhelming (Rita Ora) to frenetic ("Everything Is Awesome") to moving and gorgeous ("Glory"). And now, thanks to Lady Gaga's beautiful Sound of Music medley, we add gut-wrenchingly nostalgic and beautiful to the list.
This is a picture of Anna Wintour sitting inside the Dolby Theatre during the 2015 Academy Awards.
Patricia Arquette sobered up real quick and won the Oscar tonight for Best Supporting Actress for her performance in Boyhood. Here's Arquette accepting her award and making a powerful plea for equal pay.
During the 2015 Oscar's, Tegan and Sara accosted us—is that the right word for a performance that seemed like it trounced its way into my living room without my permission?—with "Everything Is Awesome," alongside the Lonely Island bros. And while The Lego Movie theme song is very cute in context, between the gymnasts…
"Please, don't make me show off my body!" pleaded Neil Patrick Harris to Oscars producers, a twinkle in his eye.
Here's a disheveled and already drunk Patricia Arquette doing an interview with ABC's Lara Spencer right before the start of the 87th Annual Academy Awards. Arquette is nominated for Best Supporting Actress for her role in Boyhood. "That's me!" she says. "I'm one of them. Look at this place. And here I am."
Everybody knows that play-at-home award show games are kind of like winning, anyway. And unlike winning an Oscar, you can go right ahead and do this in sweatpants without being made into a Fashion Police laughingstock.
The most magical night of every year is here! And I'm sure you're just like us here at Jezebel, fresh-faced and not at all hungover from last night but ready to make the most of it. So let's liveblog this.
