Fandom collide!

As great as this is, I wish they'd managed to get more of the cast in there. I miss Dominic Monaghan! Still, it's pretty great.

You've got to be kidding me.

Lee Pace needs to have a movie career. He's gorgeous, tall, talented, gorgeous. This isn't the type of movie career he needs. William H. Macy is waaaay too good for this crap. And what the fuck is going on with the Wilson brothers? Between Owen doing this and Luke doing the AT&T commercials, their careers are edging closer to has-been.

New Who preview

I've tried to resist, but I knew deep down I wasn't really resisting. Doctor Who is far too fun to give up just because I loved David Tennant so much as The Doctor.

The Switch trailer

I'm a big fan of Jennifer Aniston - I mean, seriously, I'm a fan of all six of the former Friends, no matter what - but I really wish she'd make a decent movie. I don't know what the problem is. She's funny, she's pretty, she's basically perfect for rom-coms, so why is it that every one that she picks seems...terrible? Though, I have to hold out hope that maybe the trailer is the problem on this one (and maybe the title, though it's better than "The Baster", which was its original title) because the rest of the cast is stellar. Jason Bateman makes very good choices most of the time, Juliette Lewis has been great in supporting roles lately, Jeff Goldblum is forever awesome, and Patrick Wilson is wonderful.

Maybe what it is is that Jennifer Aniston is better on TV than in the movies.

Eat Pray Love trailer

Oh, James Franco...may you never stop surprising me. I don't like Julia Roberts, but I'll probably see this on DVD.

Ugh. What a shame.

Nicholas Brendon, who played Xander on Buffy the Vampire Slayer (and who recently dated a good friend of mine for a second) was arrested last night in Venice, California. He was drunkenly causing a commotion, took a swing at the cops and then was tasered!

Unfortunately, I think this is Nicky hitting rock bottom. Based on what I've been told about him, this is an ongoing problem, so I hope this leads to him actually getting the help he clearly needs. I wish him the best of luck, and hopefully an upswing in his career once he's better!

Welcome back, Shia

Once again Shia LaBeouf looks smokin' on the cover of GQ.

James Franco continues to amaze

This year, James Franco has made some interesting choices with his career, all of which seem to have worked to his benefit. There was the General Hospital gig, twice hosting SNL, guest starring on 30 Rock as himself (and in love with a pillow) and filming the biopic Howl, which looks like it'll be fantastic.

And now I find out he also shot a documentary about SNL, which is getting great reviews from SXSW. It seems that you can be unorthodox with your career choices if you're a good enough actor to pull it all off. Kudos, James.

That dress

WHOA. Hilary Swank not only looks super hot, she looks like Tricia Helfer! Which is something I never would've thought before, but maybe they should be cast as sisters in something.

Super cute!

Did you notice that the beading on Carey Mulligan's dress are little scissors and knives and forks and stuff? That's awesome.

And the bad. Oh boy.

To be fair, there weren't really any fashion disasters. These dresses mostly made me go "huh?"

Diane Kruger is known for being a brave fashionista, and last night was no exception. This Chanel was definitely brave. I actually really liked it until I saw the full dress.

I don't know what Nicole Richie's deal is with these muumuu, 70's inspired clothes, but she should cut it out. I've never seen any one of them make her look attractive.

I'm sure I'm in the minority on this one, but I hate this dress. Or, well, I hate the bottom half. The top is pretty and fits her well, but the poofy thing on her hip? I just think it ruins the whole thing.

Oh, Sarah Jessica. As with Diane's dress, I don't care that this is Chanel. Yes, I like the optical illusion of the sash around her neck/strapless-how-is-it-staying-up thing, but the bottom looks like a silk sack. I think we all expected better from her.

Cameron Diaz deserves this one.

Usually Cameron Diaz shows up on red carpets looking a mess. Either the dresses she chooses are ugly, or they don't fit her, or they're wrinkled, or her hair is a disaster. I wish she'd taken better care of her skin, but that's something for another post. This post is about how pretty this Oscar de la Renta dress is on her. Well played, Rachel Zoe. She finally looks glamorous.

Oscars Fashion: The Good

Ok, so the dresses weren't all bad. Underwhelming, yes, but not terrible. I would have liked to see more color out there, but at least it wasn't a sea of black.

My favorite of the night was Amanda Seyfried's Armani Preve, which in this picture actually looks sea foam green rather than just plain white. I love the sculpting, and it fits her like it was made with her in mind. Also, people in the media? Her last name isn't that hard to pronounce. It's SAY-FREED.

Marchesa did it again with Vera Farmiga's gorgeous dress in that gorgeous...what is that - fuchsia? Magenta? Whatever, it's fantastic, and goes so well with her skin color. She's just so pretty anyway - and looks so much like an older version of my friend Jenni, which just makes me like her more, to be honest.

While I do think that Demi Moore looks a bit too skinny now, this Versace dress looks lovely on her. Wish it was a little brighter rather than pale pink, but that seemed to be the trend last night.

I haven't seen Precious (based on the blah blah blah), nor do I plan to, but I adore Gabourey Sidibe based on the interviews I've seen her do, and I love that she's clearly having such a great time being famous. Her interview with Ryan Seacrest on the red carpet yesterday was hilarious. I think this Marchesa, especially the color, looks wonderful on her. I can't wait to see The Big C, which she'll be starring in along side Laura Linney. Hopefully it'll be less depressing than the movie she's famous for.

In Style (dot com) says this Versace that Elizabeth Banks wore is lavender in color, but I'm not convinced. It looked gray on TV, and in this picture. I do think it's a pretty dress, but again, in a different color it would have been stunning.

I really love Rachel McAdams' Elie Saab's watercolor-y print dress and she looks just beautiful in it.

And finally, Sandra Bullock's metallic Marchesa, which we debated every time she was on screen over the color. Is it silver? Is it gold? We all knew it would look amazing next to the little gold statue, which is what mattered most.

Oscar fashion was pretty disappointing this year.

I was most excited to see Zoe Saldana's dress based on her choices at every other event, but I was sadly disappointed. The one she wore to the ceremony was a clusterfuck of ideas that individually might've worked, but all together is a mess.

And then this one, that she wore to the 20th Century Fox party is better, but the fade from light to dark/dipped in paint thing is totally out. It's too bad she couldn't have just worn the gorgeous dress she wore at the Golden Globes again.

The Runaways trailer

I dated this guy a long time ago who introduced me to The Runaways, and it was like love at first note. They're just so raw and dirty and 70's punk awesomeness, and were over so quickly. I was nervous when I heard this movie was being made, especially since Dakota Fanning was cast as Cherie Currie and Kristen Stewart - who I hate - was cast as Joan Jett, but with each new thing I see for it, I'm convinced the casting was perfect. I can't wait to see this movie.

Senses of humor are hotter than sparkling

How happy am I that RPATTZ still has a sense of humor about himself? So happy. Back in the Goblet of Fire days when we all loved his absurdity and opium den of pirate sex, just got laid in the limo way about him, what was really awesome was how he just didn't care about his image, and was humble. It's hard to remember that when you see him being attacked by crazy fans and constantly surrounded by security guards. Here's hoping after the Twilight shit ends, that he gets to amuse us again with his don't give a shit attitude.

ALL NEW Southland, Tonight!

It's so good, you guys. One of the smartest, highest quality shows I've ever watched, and I'm generally not a fan of cop shows. It deserves better than NBC gave it, and so much more than we're getting on TNT. PLEASE WATCH, and hopefully TNT will keep it for a third season, if not even more.
