This Sunday is the 86th annual Oscars, a magical night where the Hollywood elite get together to celebrate themselves and be excruciatingly boring for three-plus hours. There’s one thing*, though, that Hollywood might not want to pat itself on the back for too much: This year’s lead actor nominees got, on average, 150% of the screentime of their female counterparts. Lead actresses: Getting screwed over for screentime in their own dang films.
*Plus many, many others.READ MORE

The take away I’m getting from this is that there were a lot of significant moustaches in this year’s Oscar-worthy films.

Last night’s State of the Union was very much like the Academy Awards. People were honored, people were bored, camera operators got a workout trying to find the right people in the audience. Just swap the political and pop-culture references (one or two political mentions at the Oscars vs. one or two pop-culture items at SOTU).

While last year’s Oscars certainly held its share of Geeky Moments, overall, we were pretty annoyed by it. But we’ve got Ellen DeGeneres hosting this year! And for that we’re thankful. Though she’s gonna have to pull out the stops to beat the tag-team that was Tina Fey and Amy Poehler at the Golden Globes. Without further ado, here are the nominations for the 2014 Academy Awards.READ MORE

Maybe it seems a little too early to be thinking about who’s hosting the Oscars this year, but apparently somebody is, because Ellen DeGeneres just announced that she’ll be returning (she last hosted in 2007) to the Academy Awards as host.

Maybe we can get a hologram of Bob Hope to do it. That’s totally a thing that science can do, right? I could swear I saw it on CNN.READ MORE
