Best & Worst of the Oscars: Hugh Jackmania!

Posted by 104Inc.com on February 23, 2009

Oh, man, did you see that moment when that guy did that thing? Don’t worry, we did. Read on and get the full story of Oscar’s best, worst and otherest. Best Performance: Even with the slightly forced “recession Oscars” conceit, host Hugh Jackman delivered a completely winning song and dance to open the show that totally made us forget they didn’t hire a comedian. Showing off both talent and a sly sense of humor, Jackman nailed it.

Best Lyric From the Opening Song: “I would swim a sea of human excrement.” — Jackman crooning sweet(?)ly to Kate Winslet Worst Transition: From the goofily good opener—the techno Reader representation was more entertaining than the movie—the show bogged down with that somber bunch of Best Supporting Actresses intoning like they were going to banish the winner to the Forbidden Zone with General Zod. Best Brangelina Quip: Jackman drew our attention to Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie before saying, “I don’t actually have a joke for them, I’m just contractually required to mention them five times during the show.” (Not bad; it’s 25 times for us.)

Best Present: Copresenters Steve Martin and Tina Fey, who’ve been funny together on TV and film, delivered a hilarious tribute to writers that made us want to see them make another movie together. Or, you know, read something. Best Reaction: Jolie looking totally charmed by her Kung Fu Panda costar Jack Black, who was onstage presenting with that actress from Friends.

Best Twilight Crossover: Rob Pattinson brought that undead charm of his to the Oscars, where it was familiar to Twihards and everyone who’s ever had lunch with a Hollywood agent. Best On-Air Design: Whoever thought to put Daniel Craig and Sarah Jessica Parker on stage together. Best Reaction: Seth Rogen and James Franco’s half-baked response to the comedies of 2008. Dude, cinematographer Jadocs Kaminsky was so high! Joke Least Likely to Reach the Billion People Around the World: Ben Stiller’s crazy, bearded Joaquin Phoenix impersonation was funny, but a little inside considering how few people recognize Stiller anyway. Assault With a Medley Weapon: The top-hat-and-tails number with Beyoncé, Zac Efron and the rest totally summed up the year in movies. And that year was 1936.

Most Likely to Spawn a “Who’s in Your Five?” Commercial: The Best Supporting actor nomination five-way was like a presidential debate without all the humor. Most Heartbreaking: Heath Ledger’s family accepting his award. Biggest Showstopper: Wirewalker Philippe Petit, the absolutely entertaining subject of documentary Man on Wire, balancing an Oscar on his chin while a billion people watched and wondered if it would fall. But for a man who once spent 45 minutes walking between the Twin Towers, well, that’s probably no big deal.

Best Commercial: Coming in just ahead of the one for the website that helps you earn $5K a month working at home, the Tom Cruise-Jimmy Kimmel bit was funny like a house on fire. Best Make-Good Decision: The loud and fast medley crammed full of action and comic book movies, because let’s be honest: These were the best things that Hollywood had to offer last year, and The Dark Knight (not to mention Iron Man) got robbed. Take that, Reader. Worst Make-Good Decision: After that whole medley thing, the movie about the wrinkly old baby beat Dark Knight and Iron Man. Obviously, there is no justice…except that meted out by costumed heroes.

See beaten Up Rihanna Photo!

Posted by 104Inc.com on February 20, 2009

A photo that appears to be Rihanna’s face with bruises, scratches and swelling from an attack allegedly at the hands of boyfriend Chris Brown was posted Thursday night by the celebrity Web site TMZ.

The close-up image shows a welt above each of the woman’s eyebrows, marks on her cheek and around her lips, and general swelling. TMZ did not say how it obtained the photo, when it was taken or by whom.

Hours after the photo was posted, the Los Angeles Police Department launched an internal investigation and asked for the public’s help in finding the person who leaked it. A police news release said the image “has the appearance” of one taken during a domestic violence investigation, and classified its release as a case of serious misconduct that could result in termination.

Asked earlier Thursday whether he could confirm the photo’s origin, LAPD Officer Jason Lee said only that the department had not released images of the woman who accused Brown, and would not release evidence photos. A spokeswoman for the district attorney said all evidence related to the case was still with police.

Brown was arrested Feb. 8 and booked on suspicion of making felony criminal threats to a woman that authorities have not publicly identified. A person familiar with the situation, who was not authorized to speak publicly on the matter and requested anonymity, confirmed that the woman was Rihanna, whose real name is Robyn Fenty.

The person said some of the injuries shown in the photo — specifically the marks on the woman’s forehead — were consistent with the injuries Rihanna sustained.

Prosecutors have asked police to provide more information before deciding what charges, if any, to pursue against Brown. Police have said the 19-year-old singer could face domestic violence charges if prosecutors think they are appropriate.

An Associated Press photo of Rihanna, taken before the party on the night of the incident, shows her with a tattoo of Roman numerals on her left shoulder; the TMZ photo shows the same numerals on the same shoulder. TMZ had previously used its site to debunk a manipulated image that depicted Rihanna with a black eye.

No public statement has been issued on behalf of Rihanna, who turns 21 on Friday. Email and telephone messages left late Thursday with representatives for both Brown and Rihanna were not immediately returned.

Brown released a statement on Sunday, which read in part, “Words cannot begin to express how sorry and saddened I am over what transpired.” The statement, which did not mention Rihanna, said Brown was consulting with loved ones, his mother and pastor.

Brown’s arrest came roughly 18 hours after he and Rihanna left a pre-Grammy party honoring music mogul Clive Davis. According to police, Brown and a woman were involved in an altercation in a car traveling through the upscale Hancock Park neighborhood shortly after midnight. Police have said the woman had visible injuries, and that Brown was gone from the scene when they arrived.
