Ke Huy Quan Admits That He’s Worried His Comeback Will Only Be Temporary

March 17, 2023 / Posted by:

At Sunday night’s Oscars, Ke Huy Quan took home the Oscar for Best Supporting Actor for his work in Everything Everywhere All At Once. It was a huge comeback for the 51-year-old, who began his career at age 12. In 1984, Ke starred as Short Round in Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, and the next year he was in The Goonies. As an adult, Ke struggled to find acting work. You can probably guess why. Eventually, he quit acting and found work as a fight choreographer and assistant director. But, after the success of 2018’s Crazy Rich Asians, Ke was inspired to try acting again. Just a few weeks after he snagged a talent agent, Ke scored the role in Everything Everywhere All At Once. And now he’s a fucking Oscar winner! But, as thrilled as he is, Ke tells Variety that he’s worried his recent success is “a one-time thing.” He’s scared history will repeat itself. Totally valid! As much as Hollywood loves a comeback story, they also love being racist.

Tems Explains Why She Wore That View-Blocking Dress To The Oscars

March 15, 2023 / Posted by:

During the Oscars on Sunday night, Nigerian singer and Best Song nominee Tems decided that although Rihanna would be singing their Oscar-nominated song Lift Me Up from the Black Panther: Wakanda Forever soundtrack, she would make sure people would be lifting up their necks to see the stage from behind her. Tems’ Lever Couture dress immediately became the talk of the Oscars because of how her big-ass cloud dress blocked some people’s view of the stage. But now, after folks have had a moment to wonder why she decided to do this, Tems explains she was merely keeping in line with many awards show attendees who wore outfits they believed were fashion-forward but were more like fabric-inspired middle fingers.

Here Are Some Of The Looks From The Dueling Carpets From Last Night’s Oscar Celebrations

March 13, 2023 / Posted by:

Two carpets, both alike in dignity

(In fair Hollywood, where we lay our scene),

From ancient grudge break to new mutiny,

Where civil shoes make civil rugs unclean.

It’s crazy how those words by William Shakespeare are still as true today as they were in 1996 when we finally understood them thanks to Baz Luhrmann‘s Romeo + Juliet. And this morning, as the sun rose over the detritus of last night’s Oscars celebrations, one carpet emerged victorious and unblemished by the unsightly stains of blood and mud and whatever it was that Fine Ass Jonathan Majors had in his tiny silver sipping cup. For reasons we may only understand after Baz makes a movie about it, after weeks of torrential rain, the Academy of Motion Picture Sciences decided this was the year to break with a 64-year tradition and pull the Red Carpet out from under our feet in exchange for a Champagne Industrial Rug. For revenge, Florence Pugh could barely be bothered to dress for the big event so she just brushed her ponytail to the front and grabbed a beige duvet cover out of the dirty laundry for the Oscars, saving her pink comforter for the Blue Carpet at the Vanity Fair after party.

Open Post: Hosted By The FAKE Jenny The Donkey Who Went To The Oscars

March 13, 2023 / Posted by:

Last night’s Oscars was pretty boring, but a few things stirred me from my weed drink-induced stupor: that “Naatu Naatu” song n’ dance number, and Jenny the Donkey, the real star of Banshees of Inisherin. To Colin Farrell’s delight, host Jimmy Kimmel brought Jenny out halfway into the show, joking that, in addition to being an actor, she was also an emotional support donkey⁠ — “Or at least that’s what we told the airline to get her on the plane from Ireland.” This disturbed me, because a wee little donkey like Jenny should never get on a plane, even for the Oscars. Also, as we reported yesterday, Jenny was supposed to be living a quiet life in the Irish midlands! So, what gives? A Vulture source cleared things up, revealing that, actually, the Jenny at the Oscars was “just a random donkey.” BAMBOOZLEMENT! Continue reading

Hugh Grant Brought His Signature Grumpiness To His Oscars Interview With Ashley Graham

March 13, 2023 / Posted by:

Just last week, Emily wrote about how known certified grouchy bitch Hugh Grant admitted to busting out a tantrum on an innocent woman he thought was a studio executive on the set of Dungeons & Dragons. Since Hugh has a reputation as a crank to uphold, he seemed visibly thrilled and excited about all the riveting questions that red champagne carpet Oscars host, Ashley Graham, tossed his way last night. Ashley was doing her job of asking a bunch of canned mundane questions, and Hugh seemed to be trying to be dry and witty, but it became a puddle of awkwardness. It was like a conversation between two people who aren’t even on the same book, let alone the same page. And yes, the book that Hugh was on was called Old-Timey Phrases, and the “book” that Ashley Graham was on was an issue of Vanity Fair magazine.
