That Andrew Garfield / Batkid snub story was false

Andrew Garfield and Batkid

So remember how the internet (including myself) exploded over the story that Andrew Garfield 'snubbed' Batkid at this past Sunday's Oscars? Well, turns out someone must have had a huge grudge against Spider-Man, because the story was apparently a lie, as E! Online reports that both a rep for the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and Batkid's mother are denying any sort of snub. "Due to the nature of a live show, hard decisions MORE

Andrew Garfield snubbed Batkid at the Oscars!

Andrew Garfield and Batkid

UPDATE: "Due to the nature of a live show, hard decisions sometimes must be made which require the Academy to cut segments due to the logistics of production Andrew Garfield understood that his segment had to be omitted, and he drove to Disneyland on Monday to spend time with 5-year-old Miles Scott (Batkid) and his family." - Spokesperson for the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences Remember Batkid?

Ellen's Star-Studded Oscar Selfie

All right, I think this is it. This is the pinnacle of selfies.

So let's all just agree right now: This is the best we're going to do. You can still take selfies, but we all have to agree that this was the best we could do, and MORE

John Travolta butchered Idina Menzel’s name during the Oscars

Idina Menzel

Despite the fact that Idina Menzel is a Broadway legend, and the fact that "Let It Go" (from Frozen) has been playing EVERYWHERE for the past three months, or that she was performing at the Oscars, John Travolta somehow still found a way to completely f*ck up the pronunciation of her name. Apparently, he thought her name was Adele Dazim, WHICH ISN'T EVEN CLOSE YOU DAFFY BITCH. Not exactly an Oscar-worthy introduction, John Travolta. The Grease MORE

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?

“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

Ellen DeGeneres is hosting the Oscars again!

Ellen DeGeneres

After last year's Oscars host, Seth MacFarlane, managed to piss off nearly everyone in Hollywood by making jokes you thirteen-year-old brother/23-year-old stoner cousin loves, it makes sense that they'd go for a host who would be a little nicer. So naturally, they picked the most pleasant, beloved, PG-rated comedian to do the honors: Ellen DeGeneres. Via HuffPo ... Ellen DeGeneres will host the Oscars. The comedian and talk show host made the MORE

Seth MacFarlane won’t be hosting the Oscars again!

Seth MacFarlane

I think we can mostly agree that the 2013 Oscars weren't exactly the best they've ever been. They were a decent try and there were some good bits, but it just never came together.

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
