We’ve been shitting up post after post from last night’s Adele Appreciation Ceremony (Featuring Adele Appreciating Beyonce), but another awards show happened yesterday. Two weeks before Hollywood gets dressed up in $15,000 gowns to lick each other’s taints and jack one another off at the Oscars, they got into $15,000 gowns to lick each other’s taints and jack one another off at the BAFTAs last night.
Another day, another baby! Yep! Another baby! I fucking told you this would happen and it’s worse than I thought it would be! Yesterday, Chelsea Clinton and her truck stop killer-looking husband, Marc Mezvinsky, said “hi” to their new son, Aidan. And today, on Father’s Day, English grand thespian, Eddie Redmayne, has upped the stakes in this game of improv we call life by saying “yes” to a baby. His wife, Hannah Bagshawe, gave birth to their daughter, Iris May Redmayne, earlier this week but they released a statement about it today.
They made the statement through the The Times UK, reports E!. There were reports that Hannah was carrying a wee one inside her baby making parts back in December and the couple confirmed in January. Speaking to the Daily Mail, the couple’s rep said, “I can confirm that Eddie and Hannah Redmayne have welcomed their first child.” Eddie and Hannah have been together since 2012 and got hitched in December 2014. Celebitchy got a scan of the announcement:

God, it’s all so proper. A normal dating and engagement period, baby after a year and a half of marriage. Very polite. Very British. Don’t they know that nowadays to be a real Hollywood couple you’ve got to cross promote and synergise and have possible questionable work done? Like, Blake and Gwen! And to wait a little while to announce the birth? Come on! Where was the live stream?! Where was the part where you enter your card details?! These two clearly have a lot to learn… In the meantime, I’m sure they’ll be getting very close with a baby’s two best friends – shit and throw up. Congrats!
When I saw Alicia Vikander (now Academy Award Winner Alicia Vikander) stroll down the red carpet last night, it gave me a massive nostalgia high. A lot of people probably did, thanks to Alicia’s Beauty and the Beast realness. But gazing upon that pale yellow poofy Louis Vuitton dress instantly whooshed me back to memories of playing a game called Beautiful Lady in my childhood bedroom. The rules of Beautiful Lady were simple: look like a beautiful lady. Usually I would play it safe and throw on a Dress n’ Dazzle 3-in-1 Glamour Gown and my exquisite Burger King ThunderCats ring. But if I wanted to look extra beautiful, I’d pull the fitted sheet off my bed and make a stunning ballgown.
I liked to use the fitted sheet because it was far more glamorous and show-stopping than the flat sheet. It puffed out at the bottom, and as everyone knew in the 80s, puffy = instant sophistication. It was dead easy – I’d just wrap it around my waist and fasten it with a banana clip. Then I’d throw on my “wig” (a pair of black nylons) and wait for the flattery to roll in. Alicia clearly knows that Beautiful Lady is always the look, because she made sure to pair her bedsheet dress with flat-on-top/long-in-the-back hair too. Although I don’t think her jewelry came from Burger King. If I had to guess, it’s probably some cheap crap from Harry Winston or something.
Alicia wasn’t the only one who was giving me flashbacks to my homemade fashion years. Kate Winslet also took me for a walk down memory lane.
Any way to make a little extra cash, I guess. I’m joking, of course; as fas as I know, Kanye West hasn’t released a line of formal pantyhose refugee rags. I do, however, know that Rooney Mara’s Mad Max-meets-washing your dirty lace panties in the sink look from the BAFTAs last night is courtesy of Kanye’s best boo Riccardo Tisci and Givenchy, which actually makes a lot of sense.
I bet this dress started out as a sketch for a normal red carpet gown, but then Riccardo made the mistake of showing it to Kanye during one of their Friday night No Kims Allowed sleepovers in France. That’s when Kanye whipped out his favorite beige marker and book of funeral home curtain samples and turned it into the decomposing hobo bride couture you see above. And of course Rooney loved it, because she loves looking like a haunted vintage doll on prom night.
Rooney Mara wasn’t the only one who showed up to the British Oscars looking like a damp mess. Her Carol co-star Cate Blanchett, who usually gives ten tons of WTF excellence, showed up in some kind of tapestry on the top/goth Christmas Tree garland on the bottom thing. Although it does look like her tapestry is spreading down her body like an expensive rash, and Rich Lady Rash is a look I can get behind.
Here’s more fancy-dressed famous types from last night, including Kate Winslet looking like a chick whose goal is to bang Gordon Gekko and Kate Capshaw giving you “I cut my bangs in the limo on the ride over!” realness.
Who Cares About Their Oscars? Julianne Moore And Eddie Redmayne Were Finally Nominated For A Real Award
Both Julianne Moore and Eddie Redmayne are probably putting their Oscar in a boot box and storing that who cares award under a guest bed, because they need to make room on their mantel for an award they can really be proud of: A Razzie!
As they do every year, the Razzies butt squirted out their nominations the day before the Oscar nominations, which will be announced at the hour of the ungodly tomorrow morning. Adam Sandler is continuing his reign as the King of the Razzies. His movie Pixels got the most Razzie nominations along with Jupiter Ascending, Fifty Shades of Shit and Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2. They each got 6 nominations. Julianne Moore and Eddie Redmayne both won their first Oscar last year and this year they’re both nominated for their first Razzie. Julianne got nominated for the Seventh Son and Eddie Redmayne was nominated for Jupiter Ascending. I’m sure Julianne and Eddie both got calls from their past acting teachers who said, “And now I can finally say that I’m really proud of you!”
But really, these Razzie nominations are completely invalid and I cannot take them seriously at all. How can you even respect the Razzie voters ability to dishonor the best in suck when they didn’t give one nomination to the cinematic crime of the century that was the Jem and the Holograms movie? Jem should be the only turd nominated and it should fill every single category, but it didn’t get one nomination. Something in the milk ain’t clean…
Maybe the Golden Raspberry people are in cahoots with the government and the Academy Awards people. Maybe Jem didn’t get a nomination, because it’s going to be nominated for a Best Picture Oscar tomorrow and only because the feds want the producers to show up to the ceremony so that they can arrest them on the spot and charge them with butchery. Yeah, I’m going with that.
All the nominations are after the cut.
A long time ago I sort of entertained the idea of moving to London. So I checked rent prices over there and after I found out that I’d have to sell my ass to afford anything in London, I checked to see how much a skinny fat gay could get for his ass in England (answer: a 16-week-old water damaged copy of The Daily Star and a half full jar of Marmite, which I’d have to use as butt lube with my john). Moving to London isn’t going to happen anytime soon. The rent is too damn high almost everywhere and it’s really damn high in London. Eddie Redmayne knows this, which is why he takes pity on poor drama students and sometimes picks up their rent bill. The Patron Saint of Drama Students, who is currently working the stroll for his second Oscar nomination, said this to British GQ:
“The greatest privilege that I had was that my parents lived in London, so when I was out of university and out of work for a year, working in a pub, I didn’t pay rent. And I get letters from people trying to go to drama school and needing to pay their rent. And so that’s something I occasionally do. It’s impossibly expensive to live in London.”
Now everybody and their cousin is going to write Eddie Redmayne pretending to be a poor theater student so he can pay their rent. But really, Leonardo DiCaprio better not let Eddie Redmayne get away with this. The Academy voters may eat up the fact that Eddie Redmayne is helping needy actors. I full expect Leonardo to show that bitch up and help struggling drama students by buying them their own drama school, their own penthouse and their own Victoria’s Secret model.
