…people like Michael Cera and Seth Rogan are invited to join the ranks of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences alongside people like Jeffrey Wright.

“These filmmakers have, over the course of their careers, captured the imagination of audiences around the world,” said Academy president Sid Ganis, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

Jeffrey Wright=Oscar nominee. Cera and Rogan=eyeroll.



I’ve always felt Terrence Howard was a jackass, but this one takes the cake:

About the Chris Brown/Rhianna matter: “It’s just life man,” Howard said of the situation. “Chris is a great guy. He’ll be all right. Rihanna knows he loves her. They’ll be alright. Everyone has just got to get out of their way.”

Go choke on a pile of used baby wipes, asshole.

Why?  WhyWHY?

Yes, there will be a Friends movie.  No, I will not be watching that train wreck.  I already got my fill of upper middle-class, white New Yorkers and their cutesy racist attitudes on the last go round, thankyouverymuch.

And honestly, what’s the point?  Do people really need to see what Ross and Rachael are doing ten billion years after the show ended?  Does Jennifer Aniston really need another shitty movie on her resume?  The woman attracts bad scripts like flies on poo.

“I didn’t know they were going to strip her down and wrap her in a blanket,” Cyrus, appearing to promote his NBC show Nashville Star, told show anchor Meredith Vieira. Of the seemingly topless shot of his daughter, he said, “I was surprised when I saw it … but, hey, that’s life. Stuff happens.”

After posing nude to recreate a Marilyn Monroe photo shoot, Lindsay Lohan recently spoke out and blamed The Industry on Heath Ledger’s death, saying “[Marilyn Monroe and Ledger] are both prime examples of what this industry can do to someone.”  Then she got pissy with the interviewer, saying, “I’m not them … I sure as hell wouldn’t let it happen to me.”

Dear Academy Award winner Cuba Gooding Jr.:

While I can’t say that you were ever one of my favorite actors to begin with, I really must say: you have a few qualities that’ve endeared me to you (your dad being in The Main Ingredient and your breakdancing abilities among them).

I was one of those people who thought the over-the-top elements of your Jerry Maguire performance were more Cameron Crowe’s fault than yours. I didn’t mind that you couldn’t pull off the words, “You are my ambassador of quan.” Because that was just bad writing. In fact, I didn’t mind you back-flipping at the Oscars when you won that dubious Best Supporting Actor statuette.
