Gravity And 12 Years A Slave Win Big At The 2014 Oscars

Mar 2, 2014 08:59 PM

Ellen DeGeneres hosted the 86th Annual Academy Awards tonight, and while it wasn't nearly as interesting as it has been in years past, she did manage to take the most epic group selfie of all time!

It was actually Bradley Cooper who snapped the shot, but clearly Ellen organized this photo op with Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt, Meryl Streep, Lupita Nyong'o, Channing Tatum, Jennifer Lawrence, Julia Roberts and Kevin Spacey. "If only Bradley's arm was longer," Ellen tweeted. "Best photo ever. #oscars."

While Ellen made everyone feel like a winner, there were quite a few upsets at the show this year, most notably the fact that American Hustle, which was nominated for ten awards, got completely shut out. As soon as Lupita Nyong'o nabbed the prize for Best Supporting Actress and beat out Jennifer Lawrence, we began to wonder how the evening would go...

Like Hustle, Gravity was also nominated for ten awards, and it ended up going home with seven, including Best Editing, Cinematography, Visual Effects and Directing. We weren't surprised when 12 Years A Slave won Best Picture and Cate Blanchett won Best Lead Actress, but we were a little bit bummed when Leonardo DiCaprio lost the Best Actor Oscar to Matthew McConaughey. Sure, Matty deserved it, but we loved Leo in Wolf of Wall Street, and you gotta remember, this was his fourth nomination...

Leonardo DiCaprio Suits Up For The 2014 Academy Awards

Mar 2, 2014 07:25 PM

Will this FINALLY be his year?! We hope so...

Leonardo DiCaprio posed for pictures on the red carpet at the 2014 Academy Awards on Sunday evening, and though we want him to win Best Lead Actor, keep in mind this is the fourth time he's been nominated ... and so far he has zero Oscars sitting on his mantel at home. Sad face...

The 39-year-old actor is nominated for his role in The Wolf of Wall Street, which also snagged a nom for Best Picture. Think the Academy will give Leo the gold this time? Or will the excessive drug and sex scenes in the film hurt his chances of winning? We'll see...




Lupita Nyong'o Is Pretty In Pastel Blue Prada At The 2014 Academy Awards

Another awards show, another winning look for Lupita Nyong'o!

On Sunday evening the 31-year-old actress posed for photos on the red carpet at the 2014 Academy Awards at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, and she looked picture perfect in a baby blue Prada gown, which was apparently custom made ... lucky her!

Lupita celebrated her birthday yesterday, and while she'd have to beat out Julia Roberts and Jennifer Lawrence for Best Supporting Actress tonight, there's still a chance she could win. (Other ladies in the category include Nebraska's June Squibb and Blue Jasmine's Sally Hawkins.) She lost out at the Globes earlier this year, but she did bring home a SAG Award for her role in 12 Years A Slave...

UPDATE:
Lupita won! Congrats to the starlet on her achievement, and stay tuned to X17online.com for the complete winners list from the 2014 Oscars...




Matthew McConaughey And Wife Camila Alves Wow At The 2014 Academy Awards

Matthew McConaughey and Camila Alves struck a pose on the red carpet at the 2014 Academy Awards, and the 44-year-old actor looked dapper in a D&G suit while his gorgeous wife wowed in a pastel Gabriela Cadena gown.

As you know, Matthew is nominated for Best Actor for his work in Dallas Buyers Club, and he'll be competing against Leonardo DiCaprio, Christian Bale, Bruce Dern and Chiwetel Ejiofor for the prize.

Last week Matty appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live, and he was very humble about his chances of winning. Jimmy joked, "We gotta prepare you to win an Academy Award because you know you're going to win, right?" Matty shook his head, and when Jimmy brought it up again, Matty noted that losing 40 pounds wasn't just to look like the character he was playing, but to understand him. "Doing that for five months put me in a place where I was able to study and surround myself with everything Ron Woodruff, everything about HIV and AIDs at that time -- it was perfect tool -- I didn't even know it would be until I was doing it," he said.

If he does beat Leo, we can't wait to hear his speech! The one he gave at the Golden Globes earlier this year was pretty epic...




X17 Poll

Who do you think should win the Oscar for Best Actor?

Leonardo DiCaprio (The Wolf of Wall Street)
Chiwetel Ejiofor (12 Years a Slave)
Matthew McConaughey (Dallas Buyers Club)

Can you believe she's 49?!

Sandra Bullock hit the red carpet at the 2014 Academy Awards in a gorgeous navy Alexander McQueen dress, and we're not sure if she's going to win Best Lead Actress, but she'll certainly be on everyone's best dressed list!

Sandra is up against Amy Adams, Meryl Streep, Cate Blanchett, and Judi Dench ... that's a pretty tough crowd!




Jared Leto Wins The Oscar For Best Supporting Actor At 2014 Academy Awards

We knew he was going to win for his role in Dallas Buyers Club! Well, us and everyone else in the entertainment industry, but still! Just the other day, Jared Leto insisted that there was no way he would take home the prize for Best Supporting Actor at the 2014 Academy Awards...

Before accepting the prize, Jared posed for photos on the red carpet, and the 42-year-old actor, who was wearing a white Saint Laurent tux with a red bowtie, was joined by his mom and brother at the show.

Jared beat out Barkhad Abdi (Captain Phillips), Bradley Cooper (American Hustle), Michael Fassbender (12 Years a Slave), and Jonah Hill (12 Years a Slave). "This is a crazy time in my life, but it’s a focused time," he told Flaunt magazine last month. 'You only get to do this once and in this case once may be the only time you get to do it. It’s a funny way to say it, but it’s kind of true. I’m acutely aware of that and very respectful of the path I’m walking down. I’m glad that this happened to me now and not when I first started. It’s a really good thing."

Congrats on the award ... and looking this hot in his 40s!




Brad Pitt And Angelina Jolie Are Picture Perfect At The 2014 Academy Awards

Mar 2, 2014 05:44 PM

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie struck a pose at the 2014 Academy Awards, and as always, Hollywood's golden couple pretty much stole the show.

Brad suited up in a Tom Ford tux while Angelina ditched her usual black gown for a sparkly neutral-toned Ellie Saab dress, and she accessorized with a Ferragamo clutch and Robert Procop Jewels.

The couple presented at the show, but we'll have a wait a while to see if Brad will take the stage again to accept the prize for Best Picture. The 50-year-old star is nominated as a producer for 12 Years a Slave, which is up against American Hustle, Captain Phillips, Dallas Buyers Club, Gravity, Her, Nebraska, Philomena and The Wolf of Wall Street.

Which flick do YOU think will take home the top prize?

Jennifer Lawrence hit the red carpet at the 2014 Academy Awards at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood on Sunday, and the 23-year-old actress looked incredible in a strapless red Dior gown.

Lawrence lost to Lupita Nyong'o for Best Supporting Actress, but she still managed to have a blast at the show. And in typical J. Law fashion, she made headlines for tripping and falling on her dress before she even hit the press line to chat with reporters:
