  2. In Which President Obama Name-Checked Mad Men While Talking About Equal Pay For U.S. Women

    Firsts

    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). Check out this relevant clip from President Obama's SOTU last night then hit the jump to look at a depressing image of how many Congressmen stood up for this part of the speech.

    All this has happened before...

    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.

    i'll just leave this here

    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.

  8. Tina Fey Says “No Way” to Hosting the Oscars

    I'm In A Glass Case of Emotion

    "I just feel like that gig is so hard. Especially for, like, a woman—the amount of months that would be spent trying on dresses alone ... no way." Tina Fey, asked whether her Golden Globes hosting gig and an endorsement by William Shatner might lead to her and Amy Poehler hosting the Oscars next year. Told that the interviewer "was hoping for at least 'a one in a million chance,'" Fey responded "I wish I could tell you there was." Welp. There you go. 2015, maybe?

    Did you see Paperman, the black and white Disney short that preceded Wreck-It Ralph in the theaters and which snagged the Oscar for Best Animated Short Film last night? Yeah, it was great.

  10. As Life of Pi Wins Best Visual Effects Oscar, The Effects Community Rallies in Protest

    At last night's Oscars ceremony, Life of Pi took home "Best Visual Effects" and rightfully so, Rhythm & Hues, the company that did the visual effects on the film, did beautiful work that really created the world of the movie. The same can be said of Snow White & The Huntsman, another CGI-laden film Rhythm & Hues did the effects for. Together, those films grossed over a billion dollars. Meanwhile, Rhythm & Hues had to file for bankruptcy and close up shop, so the visual effects community came out to protest what they see as an imbalance at the Oscars last night. The ceremony itself only made things worse.
