  2. James Franco looks great in that photo. And I dare one you b.tches to tell me that he doesn't.

    I've always loved Kim Novak, and I always will. Maybe if she'd worn a decent gown last night she would have received a standing ovation.

    She aint Katherine Hepburn--coming to the Academy Awards in a pants suit. Then again, Streisand did it.

    Only Hillary could get a standing ovation in Hollywood in a pants suit.

    Wait a minute...Ellen wore pants almost all last night.

  3. God knows why you felt the need to provide a link to a trashy blog post about Lady Gaga attending the Oscars. She devotes more time and energy to defending the rights of LGBT people then all of her peers combined, and for that you thank her by promoting nasty gossip about how she is no longer relevant?

    Super classy Andy.

  4. I was surprised by Kim Novak's outfit, but then I decided that she probably said to herself, "Good taste and class have been dead in Hollywood for years. So to Hell with it. I'm 81 years old and I'll wear what I usually wear to my doctor's office."

  5. @ "I'm 81 years old and I'll wear what I usually wear to my doctor's office."

    Good point, Martin.

    I didn't realize that Kim Novak was that age. Still beautiful, she is. She was brave enough to date Sammy Davis Jr in the 1950s--which could have cost her her career and Sammy's life. I'll always love Kim Novak.

    You're right. She can wear whatever the hell she wants to wear... anywhere.

  6. I always thought Kim Novak was stunning.

  7. Lupita Nyong'o is stunningly beautiful. Her acceptance speech was my favorite of the night.

  8. Gaga can't even win a Razzie. Enough!

  9. Unfortunately, the SIRT1 pill will never see the light of day. Pharmaceutical companies would see a decrease in profit in a dug that not only extends aging, but lowers cholesterol, wards off diabetes, and increases their general health. Any pill that does more than one of these things is verboten.
