Oscars Round-Up

Oscars Round-Up

The 86th annual Academy Awards were Sunday night, and in some ways, they weren’t surprising at all: “12 Years a Slave” won in the best picture category, which most people saw coming; Matthew McConaughey snagged the award for best actor for his work in “Dallas Buyers Club,” which, despite die-hard DiCaprio fans’ “#PoorLeo” wails on Twitter, was the obvious (and I maintain correct) choice; the luminous and stunning breakout star Lupita Nyong’o won for the category of best actress in a supporting role for her part in “12 Years a Slave”; and the delightful film “Frozen” won for animated feature film.

All this is well and good. But let’s get to the juicy gossip.

Amid rumors of a divorce, Oscars host Ellen DeGeneres appeared to be as in love as ever with her wife Portia de Rossi at the Vanity Fair after-party. As reported by the Huffington Post, Ellen addressed the rumors by claiming that “the only thing we ever argue about is who loves who more. That is all.” Well, that’s settled.

Scarlett Johansson is pregnant. Very pregnant. With fiancé Romain Dauriac’s child. That’s right: the woman who less than two years ago said that she may never get married again and, according to EOnline, that she’s “not having kids any time soon” and the idea of starting a family right now is “not important to me.” I guess things changed?

The actress was the voice of the operating system in the film “Her,” which was nominated for best picture. In it, she (as the operating system) arranges for her boyfriend, Theodore, played by Joaquin Phoenix, to have sex with a “sex surrogate” since she herself does not have a body. It was a strange scene, but in some ways it represents the ways in which people (or machines) are getting creative these days (or, in the case of “Her,” in the future) with sex. More and more couples are thinking outside the box. I’m not suggesting a sex surrogate or anything… maybe just a game, which according to one reviewer at Adam & Eve, “is a nice way to bring a little variation into the bedroom.” The variation we saw Scarlett Johansson provide in “Her” might be a few years off yet…

Jennifer Lawrence fell. Again. Might she reconsider the ball gown next time? Perhaps sneakers and running shorts suit her better. As the Washington Post points out, the Oscar-winning (last year) and -nominated actress “didn’t waste any time doing something screengrab-worthy at an awards show, promptly tripping on a traffic cone almost immediately as she arrived at the red carpet.” Last year after winning for best actress, she fell on her way up the stairs to receive her trophy. Yikes. The Twitter-verse was alive with people suggesting she might fall on purpose, either to keep up the tradition, or to get attention.

After being nominated in 1986 for her work in “The Color Purple,” Oprah Winfrey was snubbed for a nomination this year for “The Butler.” So instead of taking home a trophy, Winfrey put her longtime feud with rapper Snoop to rest. Years ago, Winfrey called out Snoop’s music for being misogynistic, but at the after-party on Sunday, they posed together making peace signs in a photo. Peace, indeed.

Well, that’s a wrap. Here’s to next year, Leo.

Richard Lugner Did Not Like Kim Kardashian

Richard Lugner Did Not Like Kim Kardashian

Like most people on this planet, billionaire Richard Lugner did not take a liking to reality star Kim Kardashian! He invited her to be his arm candy for the Vienna Opera Ball and paid her a cool $500,000 for the privilege, but things didn’t turn out the way he wanted them to.

Apparently, he was expecting her to be his date for the entire evening and actually spend time with him. It looks like $500,000 doesn’t stretch that far when it comes to Kim — as she was too busy filming her crappy reality show “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” to notice him.

From RadarOnline via Popbytes:

She’s already in bed,” Lugner complained when approached by reporters near the end of the ball. “I’m relieved. She’s a b*tch.” Indeed, he had made no secret of his distaste for Kardashian even before she left him stranded on the dance floor. Soon after her arrival in Austria, he announced, “Kim is annoying me. Because she’s not sticking to the program. She’s filming and so she doesn’t want to have me around.”

It’s about time someone noticed that this broad is a nuisance — and he’s got a ton of money. He should really start an anti-Kardashian campaign….he’s got the money for it and he has already seen her true colors. Someone should’ve told him that a hooker would’ve been cheaper and would’ve paid more attention to him.

Ashton Kutcher Planned Mila Kunis Engagement ‘All Along’

Ashton Kutcher Planned Mila Kunis Engagement 'All Along'

By now you already know that former “That 70′s Show” co-stars Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis are engaged, but what you may not have known is that he has been planning on popping the question all along!

On Thursday, the news broke of their engagement with one another. She was spotted out and about sporting a giant diamond ring, basically confirming the news of their engagement. They are a cute couple and they seem really happy together, so we are glad that he put a lot of effort into the proposal.

A source said, “They are engaged. The ring is tasteful.”

The source said that Kutcher actually proposed about a month ago with a 5 to 6 carat diamond ring. The proposal was “very sincere and simple”, according to the source, adding that the happy couple only shared the news with a few select people close to them.

The spy said, “It won’t be a long engagement. He wants to marry her soon and start their life together. He was planning this all along. This was the plan. Once the divorce was final he got it ready and proposed. He knew through most of the time he was trying to get the divorce over with he would propose as soon as it was over.”

A snitch who was with them at an event at Bill’s Food and Drink in New York City said that Kutcher spent a lot of his time “looking adoringly at her.”

The snitch added, “She mentioned that she and Ashton had been spending every second they could together and that she loved having him there.”

A source close to Kutcher revealed, “I really do think this is forever.”

BRUCE JENNER: Womanly Transformation Complete?

BRUCE JENNER: Womanly Transformation Complete?

Is Bruce Jenner’s transformation into a woman complete? That seems to be the rumor that is floating across the internet these days. Bruce is finally realizing what happens when rumors spin out of control because you refuse to acknowledge them or deny them.

For some reason unknown to us, Bruce recently underwent a laryngeal shave, which made his Adam’s Apple less prominent. Now, people are checking out his rack, hair, nails and other qualities to see if he is actually undergoing gender reassignment surgery. We’re still not sure, but because he has yet to address this nonsense, we are left with nothing but our imaginations on this one.

Bruce also showed off a fuller head of hair which appeared to be in a popular women’s style. We can’t say whether or not Bruce is trying to look womanly or if he just had some hair plugs put in. Either way, his hair is definitely sporting more volume. Since we don’t have access to the newest picture of Bruce post-laryngeal shave, you can check that out at Us Magazine’s website. From their report:

One possible reason for his secrecy: The procedure can be a step toward becoming a woman. The laryngeal shave — which starts at $5,000 — “is, in many cases, a part of gender-reassignment surgeries,” explains NYC-based cosmetic surgeon Michael Jones. “But that’s not the only reason to have it.”

The former decathlete, for instance, says he simply wanted to change a problem spot: “I just didn’t like my trachea.”

Sources close to the former Olympian’s sons have revealed that they have just laughed at the rumors and aren’t taking any stock in them whatsoever. In fact, they have attributed his love for plastic surgery procedures as a direct result of being with Kris Jenner for so long and say that he is super conscious of his outer appearance following their marriage.
