Did You Borrow Lupita Nyong'o's $150,000 Oscars Dress? Be Honest

Allie Jones · 02/26/15 12:35PM

TMZ reports that somebody—and right now, nobody knows who—stole 12 Years a Slave actress Lupita Nyong'o's Oscars dress from her hotel room after the ceremony. The gown, covered in "6,000 white Akoya pearls," is valued at $150,000. Now's the time to come clean: Did you borrow it?

Watch Michael Keaton Scramble to Hide His Oscar Speech

Aleksander Chan · 02/24/15 02:40PM

Oh my God, Michael Keaton thought he was going to win Best Actor. Oscar prognosticators had Redmayne and Birdman's Michael Keaton nearly neck-and-neck for the prize. Keaton was ready to win. He wanted to win. Oh my God, he wanted to win so bad and then he didn't and then he had to stuff his acceptance speech back in his jacket pocket and it was so, so, so sad Jesus.

John Travolta's Oscars 2015 Message: I Love Women Sexually

Jordan Sargent · 02/23/15 11:53AM

After staying completely silent for a torturously long period of one year, John Travolta finally broke his legendary silence on his gaffe from last year's Oscars. It turns out that he didn't call Idina Menzel "Adel Dazeem" because he just figured it couldn't be that hard to introduce an award show performance, but because he was distracted by a "charismatic, sexy, beautiful" woman (Goldie Hawn).

Watch Jimmy Kimmel Catch Dumb Fans Lying About Oscar Nominated Films

Taylor Berman · 02/23/15 09:58AM

As part of his recurring Lie Witness News gag, professional prank guy Jimmy Kimmel sent a producer to the Oscars to ask fans ridiculous and obviously untrue questions about some of the more obscure Best Picture nominations. Sample question: "How do you think Angelina Jolie did as Rosa Parks in Selma?… Do you think she brought a sexiness to that scene on the bus?" Unsurprisingly, the perhaps-coached fans fell for the fake questions and responded with predictably stupid and funny answers.

Report: Winning an Oscar Does Not Make You Beyoncé 

Allie Jones · 02/23/15 09:14AM

Ever imagine what it would be like to win an Oscar? Like, what would you wear? Whom would you thank? And what would the after parties be like with that little gold guy under your arm? Last night's Best Actress and Actor winners Julianne Moore and Eddie Redmayne probably thought: something nice, my mom, and freakin' sick, respectively, but they forgot to factor in one all-important variable:

Sean Penn Announced Best Picture With a Weird Green Card Joke

Jordan Sargent · 02/23/15 01:30AM

Sean Penn drew this year's Best Picture announcement, and he revealed Birdman as the winner with a bizarre and racist joke about Mexican director Alejandro González Iñárritu: "Who gave this son of a bitch his green card?" What a way to end the show!

The Performance of "Glory" is Tonight's Highlight So Play It On Repeat

Dayna Evans · 02/22/15 11:35PM

John Legend and Common came together tonight for a stirring performance of "Glory," the song they wrote for civil rights film Selma. Because the Oscars have thus far been lackluster, uncomfortable, and flat (as they tend to be), watching the two perform "Glory" on an Edmund Pettus Bridge was tonight's standout and the night ain't even over.

Not-Oscar-Nominated Actress Jennifer Aniston Is Here  

Allie Jones · 02/22/15 11:25PM

Host Neil Patrick Harris welcomed Selma star David Oyelowo and Cake star Jennifer Aniston to the stage this evening with these words: "It's my pleasure to welcome two people who absolutely deserve to be here tonight: Jennifer Aniston and David Oyelowo!"

Terrence Howard Is Fucked Up

Rich Juzwiak · 02/22/15 10:59PM

While doing that thing where people come out and talk about nominees for Best Picture (in this case: Whiplash, The Imitation Game, and Selma), Terrence Howard almost started crying. When he did this, I thought he was leading into an introduction of the notoriously snubbed Civil Rights drama Selma. He was not leading into that, but into The Imitation Game, the Alan Turing biopic. OK, then. I guess he really likes Alan Turing?

Why Is It Snowing in Heaven? 

Allie Jones · 02/22/15 10:53PM

The "In Memoriam" montage at the Oscars this year looked beautiful, but brrr—chilly!

Where the Hell Was Joan Rivers in the Oscars' Remembrance Slog?

Leah Finnegan · 02/22/15 10:53PM

The Oscars never forgets to honor its dead with an outsize, syrupy montage embedded somewhere in the last half of the broadcast when most of the audience is drunk or sleeping. This year there were many personalities to be remembered: Robin Williams, Mike Nichols, a few marketing directors that were likely important in some way, and for some reason Gabriel Garcia Marquez.

Patricia Arquette Demands Women Get PAID and Meryl Streep Loves It

Rich Juzwiak · 02/22/15 10:07PM

Patricia Arquette's acceptance speech is the one to beat, and no one believes this more than her fellow nominee Meryl Streep. Accepting the trophy for her supporting role in Boyhood, Arquette made things political in the most plainspoken way possible:

Miles Teller, For Christ's Sake, Just Ask Margot Robbie Out

Dayna Evans · 02/22/15 09:55PM

Miles Teller, a drummer, and Margot Robbie, a babe, presented the award for best Sound Editing in a feature film. Miles Teller needs to distance himself from major nerd status, so why not ask this lady out? You see the incredibly sexual tension between these two?

Is This a Skull or What?

Rich Juzwiak · 02/22/15 09:52PM

Theory: Neil Patrick Harris stuffed his underwear for his Birdman bit at the Oscars.

Poland Finally Wins a War

Taylor Berman · 02/22/15 09:31PM

After the very beautiful and very boring Polish movie Ida won the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film, director Pawel Pawlikowski spoke for about 30 seconds before the orchestra began playing him off, just as he was thanking his late wife. As the music swelled so did Pawlikowski's voice, until the show's producers finally admitted defeat and cut off the orchestra. His steadfastness inspires us all.
