Selma Blair announced in October of last year that she had been diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, and she made her very first appearance at Vanity Fair’s Oscars after-party and she came to slay and not play in an Endora at an Easter party look.
Well, it’s official (in my Julie Chen-Moonves voice). The Oscars gave the people another reason to watch reruns of America’s Funniest Home Videos instead. I was looking forward to the moment during that stuffy evening of stiff faces when Kendrick Lamar and SZA interrupted the energy while performing the Oscar nominated song “All The Stars” from the also nominated film Black Panther. However, since that’s no longer happening, some might choose to do something more fun like prepare their taxes.
The Oscars, this year’s front runner in the category of Worse Planned Awards Show of 2019, has been steadily declining in ratings over the years yet interest has been building up because of constant issues arising ahead of the broadcast. And by “interest” I mean people waiting to see how terrible the show will be since this is the first time in 30 years that the Oscars will have no host. Meanwhile, over on Twitter, one user stated that the best person for the job would be Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and he quickly let them know that the Academy reached out to him first for the hosting gig, so Kevin Hart was their second, or third, or fourth, or last choice.
Last Year’s Best Supporting Actress Oscar Winner Allison Janney Will Not Present At This Year’s Ceremony
I hope you’ve been keeping track of all the losses this year’s Academy Awards have taken but just in case you’ve forgotten; No host. Confusion with the song nominees. And now, according to one of last year’s winners, Allison Janney, she has not been asked to present the Best Supporting Actor Oscar and she’s disappointed about it. Just cancel this shit and go back to bed, Academy.
We’re only a little over two weeks away from the clusterfuck that will be the 91st Academy Awards and I can honestly say this is the first time in years that the buildup to the ceremony has almost generated more buzz than all of the nominees. After debating whether or not all of the songs will be performed to shave some time off of the broadcast, it was announced that all five nominated tunes from the Best Original Song category will be performed. The Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper duet “Shallow” from A Star is Born is definitely one of the biggest songs in the category and the two of them are going to perform it during the show. However, according to Extra, B. Coop is absolutely terrified.
Last week, as a way of keeping the 91st Academy Awards broadcast under three hours, the decision was made to only include performances from two out of the five Best Original Song nominees. Well, the Academy changed their minds and are going to allow all five songs to perform. But the performers better sprinkle some Red Bull on their vocal cords, because they only have 90 seconds to deliver their song.
