You know, just like how J.J. Abrams said he wouldn't direct the new "Star Wars."
Response was mixed to Seth MacFarlane's hosting of the 85th Annual Academy Awards (personally, we thought he came off best whenever he didn't try so hard), but even if Oscar ends up wanting him back for another go-round, the "Family Guy" creator doesn't want the gig, according to The Live Feed.
Remember when Seth MacFarlane delighted (or offended, or bewildered, or whatever) millions of viewers with "We Saw Your Boobs," the rousing opening ditty at the 85th Annual Academy Awards? It seems like only yesterday but it was actually two days ago.
Some people loved it, some people hated it, some people couldn't care less. Regardless of the wildly divergent response to one of the most unexpected (and subversive) musical numbers in the history of the Oscars, "We Saw Your Boobs" is practically begging for a companion piece, one that focuses on ... well, you know, male nudity, which is certain a growing (HA!) phenomenon in cinema in recent years.
It's fun to describe certain photos of celebrities with what pop culture characters they've played, whether they be from comic books, YA novels or fairy tale re-imaginings. You know, if you see a picture of Hugh Jackman and Anne Hathaway together, you can be all like, "Oh it's Wolverine and Catwoman!" Fun, right? For hours, man.
Well, the 85th Annual Academy Awards brought together two pop culture icons that we never thought would ever cross each other's paths: Katniss Everdeen and the Joker.
Jennifer Lawrence was the toast of the town at the Oscars this year — her awesome dress, her tripping up the steps to accept her award for Best Actress, her all-around Jennifer Lawrence-ness brought some fun and excitement to an otherwise very strange and ultimately kinda mediocre show. It makes complete sense that she would catch the eye of one of the most notorious lotharios in Hollywood, the man who's reportedly bedded hundreds of women — and a lot of 'em much younger than him, at that.
Watch Jack Nicholson interrupt Jennifer Lawrence's interview with ABC's George Stephanopoulos — first without and then with his trademark Jack sunglasses. And watch Jennifer react as any hot young lady star would.
Thanks to Hypable for this bit of behind-the-scenes Oscar gold.
Hot People Looking Hot: Oscars 2013
You're a woman at the Academy Awards. Congratulations! Either you're nominated (the nerves!) or you're there to enjoy the show (the glam!). But this isn't just any other night in the spotlight. This isn't the ****ing Blockbuster Entertainment Awards, ladies.
This is the big leagues. This is the Oscars. You have to wear a dress that stuns. And you have to know who made it, and when, and why, and how, and if the dress's designer had any underlying motivations of resentment or jealousy towards his or her extended family that went into the creation of the dress, and how that made him or her feel about living a life in the 21st century. Because Joan Rivers and Ryan Seacrest want to know, dammit, and so does everyone watching at home.
O you're a guy at the Academy Awards. Congratulations! Either you're nominated (the nerves!) or you're there to enjoy the show (the glam!). It's pretty much just any other fancy night - just rock a nice, dry-cleaned tux and remember to brush your teeth. In fact: Have one of those t-shirt tuxes lying around? Those are fine, too. Just enjoy yourself. Maybe buy a hotel room in advance and ask Jennifer Aniston if she's down for anything later.
It's an unfortunate double standard, and it ends today, folks. This morning at NextMovie, we're evening the playing field. It's time for an honest fashion critique of the gentlemen. Get More »
"Hmm ... I must've taken a wrong turn at Al-bu-quer-que."
Most celebrities smile and wave on the red carpet and during awards ceremonies and parties. Others just look confused and befuddled. Here is a collection of pics featuring relatively well-dressed famous (or at least somewhat famous) people looking like they're wondering just what in the heck they're doing at the 85th Annual Academy Awards and related events (we hear Elton John throws a wicked viewing party).
If you're looking for pics of celebs looking at least slightly less bewildered, be sure to check out our more traditional (and super-duper-sized!) Oscars 2013 gallery.
And with all the hype, the endless amounts of expert prognostications and snarky articles on movie websites, the Oscars are over in only three-and-a-half short hours. Well, not short, exactly.
Certainly longer than some other things with lots of hype (BOOM SEX JOKE) - but still, here we are.
The awards have been handed out, and it's time to review what we all just watched. Get More »
The 85th annual Academy Awards are being held this evening and "Argo" won Best Picture. The award was accepted by producers Grant Heslov, George Clooney and Ben Affleck, who was famously snubbed in the Best Director category.
Heslov was anything but subtle in pointing out the oversight, making a special point to thank Affleck for being a "great director" before turning over the mic.
"I want to thank my wife, who I don't normally associate with Iran," Affleck said in a charming acceptance speech, also thanking everyone up to and including the entire nation of Canada.
Ang Lee, for what it's worth, won Best Director for "Life of Pi." It was the fourth win for the film on the evening, follwing Oscars for Best Visual Effects, Best Cinematography and Best Original Score. Get More »
Want to know where apparently every single person in Hollywood is tonight? Look no further than the Dolby Theatre (or the Theatre Formerly Known as the Kodak Theatre).
The biggest A-listers (and even a few B- and C-listers) and some of the cutest celebrity couples are in attendance at the 85th Annual Academy Awards tonight and we're once again a bit starstruck, not to mention in awe of all the top-notch fashion on display.
As always, everyone (well, almost everyone) looks breathtaking. See for yourself in our jam-packed gallery of red carpet and show pics — and check back often, as we'll be updating all night.
So, you've seen "Argo." You've seen "Lincoln." You've seen "Les Miserables." Notice anything? Probably not. Why would you? The good news is that Vulture has taken on the task of pointing out that this year's crop of Best Picture nominees carry some heft with them, having borrowed elements from some other favorite flicks.
One look at these comprehensive pie charts should, as much as you were blown away by "Life of Pi," it may have been conceptualized by the people behind Fruitopia. And, yes, "Argo" may have very well contained disguised commentary on how air travel sucks now. And, of course, "Les Miz" is totally "Newsies". It just is. Get More »
