    I think the same can be true of a few other winners, but are for some reason beloved by the masses (for now).

    Personally, I thought Cate Blanchett deserved Gwyneth's Oscar that year ... by a lot (and I really did like Gwyneth's performance in SIL).

    So did anyone else notice that the Academy managed to omit several people from the In Memoriam segment?

    The left out Andy Griffith, Larry Hagman, Lupe Ontiveros, Robin Sachs, Sherman Hemsley, and Ann Rutherford (who portrayed Carren O'Hara in GWTW), just to name a few.

    They do omit every year, no? And usually say there are so many deserving names blah blah but we only have so much time blah blah...Although I think they could have easily cut out that Chicago number and added in all the recently deceased.

    I thought Fernanda Montenegro was better than the both of them. I also thought Elizabeth was a horrible movie and Queen Elizabeth has been played much better by other actresses. I thought what Paltrow did in SIL was way more enjoyable and more of a challenge then being dramatic in an over-the-top soapy mess, and I like Blanchett.

    ITA. I thought Cate Blanchett was dynamite in Elizabeth.

    I agree. But, then, I can't stand Paltrow. So, I don't see anything she does as being much good.

    With Gwyneth though, talent isn't what is going to get her roles. And I don't think it's her charming personality either, although she seems to always have one A-lister besty to brag about. I think her connections will always give her enough clout that she can lobby hard for a role that really wants.

    I think Hollywood is pretty forgiving for people they like. Angelina Jolie can go crazy after an Oscar win, steal another woman's husband, and have a few bombs along the way, and she's still gold as far as producers and directors are concerned. Contrast that with some would be it girls. Kate Bosworth basically has to call the paps on herself to get any attention since she pissed off a lot of people (being a huge b*tch on the set of some of her movies, trying to steal other people's husbands/boyfriends, including Gwyneths). And has anyone seen Megan Fox's career since being dropped from Transformers?

    Megan Fox seems to be on the verge of small comeback. She did some lame Judd Apatow film earlier. Now, I guess apologized to Michael Bay and he cast her in his upcoming Teenaged-Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot.

    If you're hot and young enough, I think Hollywood forgives you as long as you still have potential to bring in the big bucks. That's all they really care about it.

    The people that don't care about the "steal another woman's husband" business with Jolie are those that are smart enough to know that Brad Pitt wasn't kidnapped by her against his will. Every Hollywood A-lister has a few bombs in their resume; That's nothing new and not unexpected. Jolie is a respected actress and has demonstrated the ability to lead certain type of films to commercial and sometimes critical successes. It's no surprise that she's still in high demand.

    That would seem to be the thing, but probably, there are so many super hawt babes in Hollywood, unless you are also CRAZY THICK with charisma and talent, you really can’t risk pissing too many of the “right” people off. To paraphrase Bill Cosby, we’ll kick you out and make another one who looks just like you. Infamy might get you a TV movie of the week, but that is different than Oscar contending roles.

    This sure helps them now that both their careers is tanking right ? :lol: Pitt and Jolie are a laughing stock for all Hollyweird :)
    She's done, her directing flick is a mess, she has an upcoming trial for stealing that script, and the Coen's deal isn't gonna help her one bit. He has looked bad for two years, looked bored too.
    Jolie is unwelcome in France, she's blacklisted in all places that would be "cool" for her, Chanel for example. She was supposed to land the Chanel commercial but Brad was chosen for it instead.
    I don't care about her, but I'd rather have a good actress than her. She bombs all the movies she's in because she's not a good actress. WeeWee Pitt ... what shall I say ? It was cool when he was 30, but at 50, he looks ... sad ;)

    Really, Pitt was just nominated for an Oscar for Moneyball and has the epic 'World War Z' coming out in June which he also produced. Not sure where you are getting your info from.

    People like Andy Griffith although they have done some film are mostly known for television and are understandably left off the list and shown on the Emmys. You can't have everybody and some mistakes with omissions are bound to happen.

    I'm a straight woman. I think Megan Fox is super hot. I would cast her ... despite her Bay tirade ... maybe even because of it. I mean, Michael Bay? Really?! He's such an a$$. I applaud Megan Fox for going up against such a powerful weenie.

    Is that really how it went, though? His replacement Meghan didn't really catch on. I think he missed her as much as she misses him.

    Yes, maybe he is the one who went crawling back and she shrugged and said, oh okay, I'll be in your dumb ass turtle movie if you pay me enough.

    So, in today’s “Googling JLaw news,” :saint: what pops up now are invasive paparazzi pics of her chilling on a hotel balcony with a friend. Sans makeup and holding what’s described as a “suspiciously” rolled ciggie. Welcome to your new life, girl. This is why, as poor a starving artist as I am, I would never want THAT level of fame.

    And as for smarmy Seth M. I’ve said elsewhere that I want to like him. We have a mutual interest in old pop music and the space program. I know someone who’s worked for him. And he’s not unattractive. But his humor is not just stuck at 12 y.o. boy level. Seeing him the other night, I thought, it’s like he’s channeling the Rat Pack, and not in a good way. (“Broads, amirite? And Jews. And Mexicans. And fat broads. Now here’s a Jerome Kern song.”)

    There seemed to be more of a focus on behind-the-scenes people this year...

    I know 2-time Academy Award winner Ang Lee is seriously contemplating doing Cleopatra with Angelina Jolie on top of working with the Coen Brothers. I don't know how anyone who says an actress working with the Coens and Ang Lee isn't considered well-liked or respected. You know how many people would KILL to work with them? I think anyone who thinks Jolie and Pitt's career is dead is fooling themselves.

    Also, if Jolie was truly blacklisted from Chanel, then why would she lose out a commercial to her significant other, Brad Pitt? Wouldn't he have refused?

    Good video. Gotta agree with anderson Cooper, why all of the hate? I mean, there are probably people who don't like her for what ever reason, that's fine. But, all of this nastiness over the dress? And Valentino screwed up. They should never have put Amanda Seyfreid in almost the same dress that they sent Hathaway. As to her acceptance speech, she was in a no win situation. Yes, the "it came true" seemed a bit phony. But, had she gone up there and acted like it was expected, she'd have been hated on for being arrogant.

    I personally like Anne Hathaway and think she is a solid actress. She won everything this year, but at the same time, she just couldn't win. Both she and Jennifer Lawrence are beautiful and talented, yet both can come across a bit awkward and geeky. The problem is that with Jennifer it comes across and is interpreted as genuine, spontaneous, and endearing, whereas Anne's same qualities come across to many and are interpreted as phony, calculated, and perhaps arrogant (which I don't think they are, and I don't think she is actually any of those things). I really don't think Jennifer worries too much about what people think of her and she just acts like herself, whereas Anne seems to worry way too much about the impression she's making and then overthinks and tries to act the way she thinks people want her too off-screen. She didn't help herself with the admissions of practicing her acceptance speech (hell, probably everyone does this, they just don't usually say so). People interpreted that as self-absorbed and then decided it made her speech even more phony. And why did she apologize to Valentino???? He should apologize to her, his biggest cheerleader, for not making a truly unique dress for her. And her stylist and the team who came up with that pink nightmare should be fired. That wasn't a "nipplegate;" darts in satin can be incredibly difficult to do well, and it frankly wasn't helped by the dress being worn by someone who's more than a bit flat-chested (and skinny post her Les Miz role). She didn't fill out the top well, and the whole dress looked off from the waist up.

    Anne basically got run over by the spontaneous charm train that was JLaw, who unintentionally probably brought more focus to the supposed "flaws" the Hathahaters see in Anne. In the long run, it's a brief storm and it shouldn't affect Anne too much. She has a ton of talent, I just wish she could relax a bit more with her image.

    I agree; the designer should be more aware of what actress goes in what dress. Anne Hathaway has been criticized all season about her blathering acceptance speeches which I can sort of agree with. She is a very beautiful girl with a great body so it should be very easy to dress her but Prada really dropped the ball with that hideous dress that looked unfinished. I think the hatred should be directed at them and not her in particular.

    As far as her expecting to win-I thought so to but upsets do happen. She probably was the winner and she knew it but it still has to be a shock to hear your name.

    Good for Anderson Cooper (and many others) to stick up for her.

    ....People hate Anne Hathaway? And yeah, it's not like she MADE the dress herself.

    I like her and JLaw both. Apparently I'm supposed to pick a team?

    I agree that Valentino brought the situation on themselves by sending out two very similar dresses for consideration.
    As for the rest of the Jennifer Lawrence/Anne Hathaway "situation"; it's the difference between a 22 yr. old and a 30 yr. old.
    As one gets older you tend to "consider" what you say and do a bit more - and you should.

    In most cases, it would be called "maturing".
    I'm not sure that's understood - or desired - in Hollywood.

    No, no. You are supposed to day WHHHHHHHHHHHHHYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY all the HHHHAAAAAAAAATTTTTTEEEEEE?

    ;)

    As for Anne's dress, it was hideous. Are people who are snarking on the dresses and other things people wear to awards show not supposed to say so? You wear something horrible to an awards show that is of interest world-wide and people are going to give you a hard time.

    A semi-related side-note: lots of actresses were flaunting flat chests this year. I applaud this as a fellow flat chester.

    I have no issue with people saying the dress was ill fitting and rather awful. But, the criticism she is getting is from changing from the Valentino (who she absolutely has championed) to the Prada, the night before the Oscars. Well, Valentino sent almost the same dress to Seyfreid and Hathaway was not going to look like they were matching outfits. She had every right to switch from the Valentino, whoever picked the Prada was either drunk or blind.

    This is exactly what I think is happening too. I actually have a friend who possess a lot of Anne's mannerisms (gestures and way of speaking), and she's a genuinely sweet person, which is probably why I take Anne at face value. But it can come across as too try-hard. Still doesn't explain why some people think of her as if she ran over their dog...
