Oscar Gets All Handsy

Oscar's Best Handjob Award - watch more funny videos

If there was one trend in the movies of 2012, it was the ever-present handjob. Yup, the only HJ had more screen time in 2012 than Jessica Chastain, and that's saying something.

Funny or Die didn't let the trend die quietly, editing last night's Oscars to make it look like Sandra Bullock gave out an award that would make even Seth MacFarlane blush: Best Handjob in a Leading Role. And, oh, there were many! Between "The Master," "On the Road," and "Hyde Park on Hudson" (wait, how did we miss that?), 2012 was the year Oscar got, er, "hands on." (More like "The Master-bater," eh?)

It's good to know Kristen Stewart's got options, though, now that the "Twilight" franchise has come to a close. Give the gal a hand! (Or, actually, vice versa.)

Before They Were Famous: Kristen Stewart in a Car Commercial

Porsche

2012 has been quite a year for Kristen Stewart: the epic "Twilight Saga" came to an end, she's showing her boobs in another film, and she's dealt with tabloid dramz in her relationship  with R.Pattz. Still, it seems nothing brings this girl down.

It's hard to believe the 22-year-old actress really did anything before she signed on as Bella Swan just a few years ago. But we know better than that. Her breakout role came at 12-years-old as Jodie Foster's daughter in "Panic Room," and that was only the beginning.

In "On the Road," out this weekend, Stewart takes the passenger seat for a cross-country trip with Garrett Hedlund and Sam Riley in a film based on Jack Kerouac's novel of the same name. The story follows young writer Sal Paradise (Riley) as he travels through the States with his free-spirited buddy Dean Moriarty (Hedlund) and Moriarty's teen bride (Stewart) during the 1950s. The threesome (uh, yeah, there's that scene too) ditch life in New York in search of new experiences.

Funny, though, how one of Stewart's childhood gigs would come into play for her role in "On the Road." Long before she was a credited actress, K.Stew was featured in a Porsche commercial where she enjoys a daily road trip with the wind blowing in her hair. In the TV spot, Stewart realizes there's no way she's hopping on a boring yellow school bus when she can hitch a ride in a fancy sports car. Who can blame her?

Here she is back in the day, cute pigtails and all:

PHOTOS: Kristen Stewart Is Queen of Stankface

Dear Kristen Stewart, would it kill you to crack a smile?

Stewart, erstwhile star of the "Twilight" franchise, has 50-plus shades of stankface, and she's displayed each and every one of them on red carpets over the last several years. We understand that some people just have kind of a mean resting face, but this seems a little excessive. Do you really have reason to be so glum? We'd like to point out that Robert Pattinson took you back. And it's worth noting that you were named the highest-paid Hollywood actress last year.

Whatever the opposite of smizing is, that's what you do. Tyra Banks would be ashamed.

We hate to belabor the point, but really: Just try cheerfulness! It might do you some good.

Click through to the gallery to check out some of Kristen's stankiest stankfaces (some with bonus Robert Pattinson).

Q&A: Garrett Hedlund 'On the Road,' on Illegal Drugs, Getting Naked and Twihards

IFC Films

Garrett Hedlund is many things: the leading man in the rebooted sci-fi franchise "TRON", a honky-tonk love interest in "Country Strong" and "Georgia Rule," and now an indie wild child, playing Dean in the long-awaited film adaptation of "On the Road."

Hedlund's path to "On the Road" wasn't an easy one: He's been attached to the project for five years, and the movie has been in Hollywood purgatory for even longer, with a paper trail leading back to the 1950s, when author Jack Kerouac first floated the idea of an adaptation of his novel. This Friday, U.S. audiences will finally get the chance to see this new side of him (and, as a bonus, they'll get to see his naked side).

Hedlund caught up with NextMovie in New York ahead of the film's release, and talked "Twilight," getting intimate with Steve Buscemi, and how, exactly, to crack open a Benzadrine inhaler. Get More »

GALLERY: Kristen Stewart Is Fairy Tale Gorgeous

There's really not much room for debate here — Kristen Stewart is beautiful.

And she doesn't just have any kind of run-of-the-mill beauty. The "Snow White and the Huntsman" and "Twilight Saga" heroine has that, I-just-rolled-outta-bed and I-never-wear-makeup thing down pat. Mix that with her adorably awkward personality, a major movie franchise and that super-hot boyfriend of hers and you have the recipe for Hollywood starlet perfection.

Well, that and a Hot People Looking Hot gallery of gorgeous photos courtesy of yours truly.

Best of the Fest: The 2012 Toronto International Film Festival

Looper TriStar Pictures

We've bid farewell to the Great White North for another year — yup, the 2012 Toronto International Film Festival is officially over. In years past, Oscar winners like "Slumdog Millionaire" and "The King's Speech" made their international debuts at TIFF. With that in mind, we took in every screening our schedules allowed, looking for the Next Big Thing of this year.

We narrowed the Best of Fest list to 15; They may not be the Oscar nominees of 2013 — though we'd bet cash money some of them are — but they'll be among the best movies you'll see for yourself this year. -- By Kevin Polowy and Brooke Tarnoff Get More »

Kristen Stewart Digs the New Cut of 'On the Road'

And that means that we're going to probably dig it, too.

K.Stew is at the 2012 Toronto International Film Festival in promotion of "On the Road," director Walter Salles' highly anticipated adaptation of Jack Kerouac's classic novel that, for many, captured the spirit of the Beat Generation like no other. Toronto is showing a different cut than the one that was screened at Cannes earlier this year, and while Stewart likes both versions, she thinks this new one will appeal to the true Kerouac fans out there.

Check out Kristen's interview with MTV's own Josh Horowitz and go see "On the Road" when it hits theaters on Dec. 21, daddy-o.
