  • Emma Watson's Globes Surprise: Here Come the Hidden Pants!

    Yahoo Movies3 mths ago

    Backless dresses. Been there, done that. But Emma Watson took it one step further and wore a dress with no back at all. Nothing. Nada. Zilch.

    Good thing the Golden Globes presenter accessorized her daring red Dior gown with black pants and navy pointy toe heels. Unsurprisingly, the look got some confused reaction on Twitter.

  • Golden Globes Live From the Wet Carpet?

    Yahoo Movies3 mths ago

    Forget fashion malfunctions: A section of the red carpet for the Golden Globes turned soggy after a fire sprinkler malfunctioned just hours before Hollywood's glitterati, in their swanky gowns and expensive shoes, were due to arrive.

    "I was standing right there when it went off. A light was too close to the sprinkler," an eyewitness told Yahoo.

    "We can confirm that there was a malfunction with a sprinkler near the red carpet," read a joint statement from the show’s brain trust: the Beverly Hilton, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, and Dick Clark Productions.

    Workers scrambled at the scene, using high-powered vacuums to suck up the water.

    They could probably use some air freshener, too — some witnesses told local station KABC that the soaked carpet smelled like sewage.

    Despite the drenching, the parade of celebrities was not impacted.

    Blink and you missed some of the more awkward moments of this year’s Academy awards. Others happened behind-the-scenes. Luckily, they were all caught on camera so we could re-visit them. Again and again.

    Seth MacFarlane: "I Saw Your Boobs" song and dance

    In one of the least classy and possibly most uncomfortable moments of the evening, host Seth McFarlane executed a production number titled "I Saw Your Boobs." On the Oscars. Yes, really.

    Channing Tatum admits he waxes

    The "Magic Mike" actor has the smooth moves on the dance floor, but he also admitted to smooth skin – from waxing. Ouch, and we mean it.

    Shirley Bassey's overly dramatic performance

    The incomparable songstress belted out the classic Bond tune "Goldfinger." But she may have overdone it with her own fingers, clutching at her chest for added – and unnecessary – drama.

  • Jennifer Lawrence’s golden moment becomes Oscar oops

    Claudine Zap at Yahoo! Movies Oscars Blog1 yr ago

    Maybe Jennifer Lawrence didn't get that sandwich in time.

    The actress, who joked on the red carpet that she hadn't eaten all day, wound up tripping on the stairs on her way to accept her Oscar for Best Actress for "Silver Linings Playbook."

    But she managed to go on with the show. As she gripped her Oscar she told the crowd standing in support, "You guys are just standing up because you feel bad that I fell and that’s really embarrassing. But thank you."

    The down-to-earth actress explained back stage what it was like when she hit the ground. "Was that on purpose? Absolutely! What happened? What do you mean what happened — look at my dress! I tried to walk up stairs in this dress, that's what happened. I tried to walk upstairs and stepped on the fabric. They waxed the stairs. What was going through my mind? A bad word that I can't say that starts with F."

  • Anne Hathaway: Oscar winner … and fembot?!

    Claudine Zap at Yahoo! Movies Oscars Blog1 yr ago

    As expected, Anne Hathaway took home the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress for her role in “Les Miserables.” But (yet again) her wardrobe seemed to upstage her.

    The hashtag “les nipperables” quickly erupted on Twitter in a nod to the A-lister’s other two stars that stole the limelight.

    The pink Prada dress, which the actress described on the red carpet as “business in front, party in the back,” had plenty going on in front.

    Let’s just say, the perky star seemed cold on stage as she clutched her gold statuette. Perez Hilton knew who to blame, tweeting, “Anne Hathaway's stylist should be fired for not forcing her to wear pasties!”

    Even Jimmy Kimmel took a swing at Hathaway’s dress. In his show following the ceremony, Kimmel joked that her nipples almost poked through her dress.

    Hmm… We've seen this somewhere before.

  • Shirley Bassey’s license to kill at the Oscars

    Claudine Zap at Yahoo! Movies Oscars Blog1 yr ago

    The 85th Academy Awards marked the 50th anniversary of the James Bond movies. To celebrate 007's big occasion, Shirley Bassey took the stage for a musical tribute.

    Wait, who? That would be the 76-year-old Welsh songstress who was never on screen for the spy films, but whose songs are instantly recognizable for her classic soundtrack: "Goldfinger" and "Diamonds Are Forever."

    Dressed in - what else? - a sequined gold dress, Bassey belted out "Goldfinger" for the Oscars.

    While there was a mixed reaction to the whole Bond segment, Bassey received a standing ovation from the audience at the Dolby Theatre.

    And on Twitter, Bassey’s fans sent her the love.

    Patton Oswalt ‏gave the the singer this shout-out:

    “I 1000% love Adele. But she should be genuflecting next to Shirley Bassey right now. “

    Shira Lazar ‏ agreed, “Watch out Adele- Shirley Bassey is in da house!” #
