There was a time in the 90s and early 2000s when you couldn’t hear a cover of “You Can’t Hurry Love” without thinking of Julia Roberts and her smile that never ends (I’m positive it never ends, the jaw unhinges and the teeth just keep going). But it’s been a while since we’ve seen Julia Roberts twirl around falling autumn leaves with an actor possibly named Richard. There’s a reason for that.
Known terror to the food service industry, Julia Roberts is having a busy year both personally and professionally with a new flick out, a TV show in the pipeline, and a recent wedding anniversary with Danny Moder, but don’t you dare try and get her opinion on what it feels like about turning 50`.

Don’t let that smile and Georgia guffaw fool you. Even before she played a character everyone had to hide the sweet tea from in Steel Magnolias, Julia Roberts has wandered Hollywood spritzed with the scent of Chanel No. 5 and DIVA JUICE. But now she says marriage has made her a reformed diva. Mmhmm. Continue reading
For the fifth – yes fifth – time, Julia Roberts has been chosen by People magazine (aka People with Aggressive Publicists magazine) for their annual World’s Most Beautiful issue. I honestly didn’t think People could get more predictable with their pick than when they threw Jennifer Aniston on the cover last year, but here we are.
Before Stepmom came out in December of 1998, there was a rumor that Susan Sarandon and Julia Roberts hated working with each other. Both Susan and Julia denied that they were feuding to Entertainment Weekly about a month before the film’s release. Julia called the rumor “boring” and a “yawn” and said she was actually hoping people would have started a better rumor, like that she and Susan were fucking each other. Almost twenty years later, the rumor can finally be throw out along with that a VHS copy of Stepmom that every basement seems to have.
Tomorrow we find out if all the hard work and hand jobs Ryan Reynolds has been giving have paid off when the Oscar nominations are announced. But today we find out whose lazy hand job of a performance was rewarded with a 2017 Razzie nomination
There was a nominations sweep at this year’s Razzies. Zoolander 2 got 9 nominations, followed closely behind by Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice with 8. Sorry, 1997’s Batman and Robin, it looks like you’re still the Batman movie with the most Razzie nominations. But don’t worry, there’s a chance that Batman movie written and directed by Ben Affleck could happen.
Jared Leto’s award dreams came true in the most Twilight Zone-y of ways. He’s not going to get the Oscar nomination he was no doubt sure he was going to get, but he did get a Worst Supporting Actor Razzie for Suicide Squad. And Julia Roberts’ performance as Lady Wearing a Bad Wig in Mother’s Day earned her a Worst Actress nomination. That wig didn’t get a Worst Supporting Actor nomination, because of course it didn’t; that wig worked its ass off and supported her like a load-bearing beam.
And Ben Affleck received his 10th Razzie nomination today. The big one-zero! He should go out and celebrate tonight for reaching a career milestone. Maybe his BFF Tom Brady will treat Ben to a steamed green bean and unseasoned fish dinner at his house.
The list of nominees is after the cut.
