Where do Oscar winners keep their Oscars? Kate Winslet put hers in the bathroom, so guests can play pretend in the mirror without shame. I love that, except I hope people are washing their hands before they handle Oscar. Before. TooFab reports that a week after her Best Supporting Actress win, Jamie Lee Curtis has already found her Oscar a happy home; beside her Everything Everywhere All At Once character’s fictional butt plug-shaped award for “Auditor of the Month” and her recent Screen Actors Guild Award. Looking at all three awards lined up in a row, it’s clear that the SAG is the only one not ideal for sticking up your ass. Continue reading
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.
It’s Oscar-winner Michelle Yeoh, now, bitches! Back in 2001, Halle Berry became the first woman of color to win Best Actress for Monster Ball, and last night, she took a trip down memory lane and presented 60-year-old Michelle as the second woman of color to win the award. Luckily for all of us, Halle has more restraint than Adrien Brody had with her, and she didn’t make out with Michelle against her will after the win.
After laying down numerous jokes about Will Smith’s glorified roommate Jada Pinkett Smith, Chris Rock got slapped by Will so hard it took him a whole year to retaliate. The New York Post says that now Chris is back and ready to live out his Carrie revenge fantasy with his new live and unedited Netflix special called Selective Outrage, which comes out this weekend. After all the countless commentaries, apologies, memes, and Red Table Talks, Chris is ready to use the slap for jokes for his Netflix special. Well, he did tell us that he wouldn’t talk about the slap unless he got paid.
Since He’s Done Talking About His Accent, Austin Butler Is Back To Talking About Being Hospitalized After “Elvis” Wrapped
Since you all made fun of that Elvis boy’s accent so much, Austin Butler has had to pivot his entire Oscars campaign back to focusing on the toll playing Elvis Presley took on the rest of his body. At least he can finally give his vocal chords a rest; right after they stop singing Hallelujah! At the very beginning of his Oscar campaign way back in May, Austin talked about how his body “just started shutting down the day after I finished Elvis” and he had to be rushed to the hospital. Now, with only a week to go before his big night, Austin dropped a bucket down into his well of anecdotes, only to have it come back up filled with dust.
It’s officially Oscar time. Only 45 days until the day after the Academy Awards when we’re treated to a million think pieces angrily wondering why the youth won’t willingly watch a 15-hour broadcast. It’s probably because of all that TikTok-ing! In the meantime, we’ll have to get our Oscar fill by reading up on think pieces about the current crop of nominees and who is more deserving of having the coveted gold paperweight. While Ke Huy Quan and Michelle Yeoh should sweep EVERYTHING (yes, even Best Animated Short Film, I don’t care), some nominees are getting the side-eye (cough Andrea Riseborough cough). The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has begun an investigation into Andrea’s unusual grassroots campaign to get that OSCUH. Academy members are probably thrilled that this year’s scandal doesn’t involve a slap!
