Here’s who won big at The Academy Awards last night …

The Oscars

The bad news is that there really isn't that much to talk about in regards to the Oscars. The good news is that that means everyone did their job; remember how newsworthy last year's Oscars were? Well, that was because everyone hated Seth MacFarlane afterwards. A well done Academy Awards is one that doesn't throw us easy stories. So let's just jump straight into the winners then, shall we? Best Picture 12 Years A Slave Best MORE

Take a look inside the Oscars ‘losers’ gift bags!

The Oscars

The Oscar gift bags are notorious for being extravagant, lavish prizes whose overall cost could by a nice house in a small town. This year is no different, and the gift bags for the nominees who don't win reportedly cost around $80,000 a pop. So behold the many contents, via HuffPo ... Wine-infused chocolates from Chicago-based Chocolatines 10,000 Halo natural pet food meal donations made to the loser's pet charity of choice Hydroxycut MORE

“Alone Yet Not Alone” lost its Oscar nomination

Alone Yet Not Alone

When the Oscar nominations were first announced, there was a bit of a kerfuffle over one of the nominees in the Best Original Song category. Turns out, the self-titled song from Alone Yet Not Alone was written by Bruce Broughton, who as it turns out is a former governor for the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences and is currently on the executive committee. In layman's terms, he's one of the people who runs the Oscars. Seeing as that's MORE

Anyway, the complete list of nominees via HuffPo (I'm sticking my initials next to my picks. If MK is so inclined, he MORE

So the Oscars were last night …

Daniel Day-Lewis, Jennifer Lawrence, Anne Hathaway, and Christoph Waltz

Look, I'll be blunt with you: At this point, we've gone through so many awards show that the thrill of recapping them is kinda ... gone. It's like when you first move out of your parent's place and realize that nothing is stopping you from eating ice cream all day: Eventually, the thrill diminishes and you get bloaty and your voiding starts coming out frozen. That's what this has become. So instead of spreading this out over an entire day, we're MORE

The 2013 Oscar Swag Bag: Windex and hair ties?!

Oscar 2013 Swag Bag

As we've already demonstrated today, not only are the Academy Awards an opportunity to honor some of the best and brightest that Hollywood has to offer, it's also an opportunity for terrible people to bilk them out of thousands of dollars of free crap. Except this year, the annual Oscar swag bag has ... ummm, gone off in a different and bizarre direction. Via The Daily Beast: Take 2: Your Guide to Happy Endings and New Beginnings by Leeza MORE

The 85th Annual Academy Awards

It's that time of the year again: the 85th Annual Academy Awards are a-coming, and once again we all have to pretend like we don't know exactly who will win. (Beasts of the Southern Wild has no chance, but I hope it picks up a few wins.) Anyway, here's the list of the big awards, via HuffPo, because these are really the only ones I can make informed bets on when it comes time to make my Oscar pool. Best Picture Amour Argo Beasts of the MORE

The 84th Annual Academy Awards

Now that the Golden Globe Awards have more or less spoiled the results for us, here are the Oscar nominations for the 84th annual Academy Awards (set to take place on February 26th), which really shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone who can remember the Globes from a week ago.

Eddie Murphy hosting the Oscars! A Bad idea?

Eddie Murphy

News is forthcoming about the 84th Annual Academy Awards ceremony to be held on February 26th, 2012, and some of it isn’t pleasing the masses. The latest news on the big event has Eddie Murphy confirmed as the host for the festivities ... leaving many confused and at least a few questioning the choice of emcee. I guess (stoner) James Franco and Anne Hathaway haven't been invited back after last year's debacle. In recent years Murphy’s been MORE

Oprah, Darth Vader to receive Oscars!

Oprah Winfrey

Somehow, neither Oprah nor James Earl Jones have ever won an Oscar, which is really weird because one is known to the world as an enigmatic overlord known for their ability to control things with their mind and an army at their beck and call, and the other played Darth Vader. Anyway, the Academy Awards are going to be acknowledging their contributions by awarding the two of them as well as make-up artist Dick Smith with lifetime achievement MORE

Anne and James hate each other now!

James Franco and Anne Hathaway

So if you all remember how the Oscars turned out, and honestly how could I forget at this point, you'll remember that James Franco basically just mumbled a couple lines while maintaining the exact same stance throughout the entire show while Anne Hathaway pretty much had to carry the entire show by herself. Well, it turns out she might not be too pleased. By which I mean they hate each other. A lot. "She had to provide all the energy -- he was MORE
