the First Time They Were Nominated..

Many of the nominees at today's Academy Awards have been down this road before! Meryl Streep, for instance, has been nominated a whopping 17 times. And if you think that's impressive, Woody Allen has received 23 nods. Here are some of the honorees who have a past relationship with Oscar--along with photos of them their first time around...

Glenn Close:
Up for her role in Albert Nobbs, this is Glenn's sixth Oscar nomination. Her first was back in 1983 for The World According to Garp, but she lost to Jessica Lange. At that year's ceremony, she had a Princess Diana look going on, which makes sense for the time. 


Brad Pitt:
The nomination for Moneyball brings his total to three. He has not yet won--(Poor Brad! Too many talented guys in his category.) The first time Brad was nominated was in 1996 for his supporting role in Twelve Monkeys. On his arm that night was his then-fiancee Gwyneth Paltrow. See more vintage photos of Brad (and partner Angelina Jolie!) at the Oscars over the years.


Michelle Willams:
This is the third Academy Award nomination for the My Week with Marilyn star, who has not yet won the big prize. (No worries there--she's only 31.) Her first nomination came in 2006 for Brokeback Mountain--and here she is on the red carpet with Heath Ledger that year. It's funny--whenever I picture the actress in my mind, this is the photo I always think of. She looked so beautiful--that canary yellow dress was amazing--and happy. 


Nick Nolte:
His role in Warrior earned the actor a nod this year--that makes his total three nominations overall. His first came back in 1992 for his part in Prince of Tides. So basically his first time was 20 years (and one Santa beard) ago.


Woody Allen:
Although the Midnight in Paris director has so been nominated so many times, and has won three awards (the first two in 1978 for Annie Hall), he never actually attends the ceremony. I shouldn't say never--the one exception was following 9/11 when he showed up at the ceremony in 2002 (pictured) unannounced and made a plea for filmmakers to continue shooting in New York City.


Meryl Streep:
The Iron Lady star has won two Oscars in the 17 times that she's been nominated over the years. The first was in 1979 for The Deer Hunter--and she looked stunning at the ceremony. She really hasn't changed that much, has she?


Kenneth Branagh:
A four-time nominee. The My Week with Marilyn star was nominated for the first time back in 1990 for his work in Henry V.


Viola Davis:This is the second time The Help star has been invited to the big dance. In 2009, she was nominated for Doubt and looked amazing coordinated with Oscar in gold.


George Clooney:
Since George made the jump from TV to movies in 1999, his career exploded. He's received six nominations in total and won in 2006--the first year he was ever nominated--for his supporting role in Syriana. This year's nod comes from his part in The Descendants. This is old hat to George by now!


Christopher Plummer:
He's been entertaining the world since the 1950s--with The Sound of Music hitting theaters in 1965--but he didn't get his first Oscar nomination until 2010 for The Last Station. Now, just two years later, he is up for his role in Beginners and is considered the sentimental favorite. Since 2010 is like a minute ago, here's a pic of the actor back in his Sound of Music days...and then now.


Oscars 2012 Red Carpet Best Dressed

Let's talk Oscars 2012 fashion, shall we, gals? The awards season has been building to this moment, where one-shoulder shapes and glittering gowns ruled the red carpet. Check out our favorites, then cast your vote for best dressed! 


Most Unexpected: After an awards season full of pastel dresses, it was such a refreshing change to see Jessica Chastain in a regal embroidered gown by Alexander McQueen. She was leading ABC's best dressed poll when the show started! 


Chicest import: The Artist star Berenice Bejo is half Argentine, half French, all utterly chic. We haven't seen sleeves look this good since Kate Middleton's wedding gown! Her mint green Elie Saab number was demure and exquisitely detailed. 


Supermodel work: Milla Jovovich also wore Elie Saab. Her embellished one shoulder gown was pure Hollywood glamour and let her natural beauty shine through. 


Most Un-boring Use of Black: Rose Byrne made a major style statement in a one-shoulder sequin gown by Vivienne Westwood. Check out that rear view! A blunt bob and Chanel fine jewelry completed the look.


Blushing Beauty: Can we just take a moment to gush over how incredible Bridesmaids star and nominee Melissa McCarthy looks in this goddess gown by Marina Rinaldi? The lighter color is a chic departure for her, and her Brian Atwood shoes have a special message in the bottom just for her--she revealed that she's been friends with the designer since high school! 


Best Accessory to George Clooney: It takes a pretty special gown to draw our eye away from a professional hunk like nominee George Clooney, but Stacy Keibler's gold Marchesa number did the trick. She looks like a human Oscar! 


Juuust Enough Skin: Viola Davis did decolletage exactly right in this emerald gown by Vera Wang--the fit is impeccable and her skin is positively glowing. 


Pretty in Pleats: The exact color of Michelle Williams' Louis Vuitton dress is still up for debate--she and Ryan Seacrest were waffling between coral and pomegranate on the red carpet--but the fact that it's fabulous wasn't lost on anyone. It's sweet and on-trend (check out that peplum!) and so incredibly her


Most Gorgeous Gams: Hello, hotness! Angelina Jolie showed off one of her best assets in a strapless Atelier Versace dress with a daring thigh-high slit. 


Brand Ambassador of the Season: We've seen Octavia Spencer on the red carpet wearing Tadashi Shoji over and over again this season--and the gowns get better each time! This figure-flattering platinum starburst dress was worth saving for last. 


Hottest Mama: Is it warm in here, or is it just a super-buff Jennifer Lopez killing it in Zuhair Murad? This is classic J.Lo, from the cutouts to the cleavage to the sleek-and-sexy 'do! 


Best Use of Color: Time to play favorites, ladies: Emma Stone gets my vote, hands down, in Giambattista Valli. 


Biggest Risk Taker: Leave it to Gwyneth Paltrow to totally write her own rules on Oscar night! Her white Tom Ford gown was equal parts minimalist and edgy--who else could pull off a built-in cape? 


One-of-a-Kind Stunner: "If you like the dress, I did nothing," Penelope Cruz said on the pre-Oscar red carpet. She called her off-the-shoulder Armani Privé, made just for her, "one of my favorite dresses that I've ever worn." 

Okay ladies, time to dish! Who had your favorite Oscar dress? Who do you think we left off? Which would you most want to wear?:)

The Dictator Sacha Baron Cohen Spills Kim Jong Il’s Ashes All Over Seacrest

The Dictator ended up appearing on the red carpet of The Oscars despite the Academy doth protesting too much. And what did he do? No big deal. Just spilled a bunch of Kim Jong Il’s ashes all over Ryan Seacrest and the red carpet. 

HE DID IT. OK back to work.

Remixed BBC News Is The Best News

Here’s a pointless but hilarious video of multiple BBC news broadcasts re-cut by user Cassetteboy and stitched together in the most bizarre way possible. Either that, or news overseas is just way more entertaining.
I would joke that “I wish all news were remixed news!”, but that’s gonna be a reality by like 2018, if not sooner. I’ll have too short an attention span by then to notice or complain (language semi-NSFW):

Dermot Mulroney’s Love Of Penguins Is The Perfect Icebreaker

Dermot Mulroney is the Matt LeBlanc of Dylan McDermotts. Now that that impenetrable logic is out of the way, Demot visited Sea World to hang out with some penguins while looking like the finest DILF on the Upper West Soid. (Google Image search Dermot Mulroney + Kids and the result is him running shirtless in a park. I think his kids might be his abs?)

The good news is, if I ever meet Dermot, I’ll have the perfect icebreaker: Penguins. The dude loves penguins. Look at him. Look at his face. Have you ever seen a man so dazzled by a bird? 

It took a lot of restraint for me not to Photoshop my face over that penguins so that I may pretend Dermot was so happy to see my squat little body there. 

Another worthy shot ahead. I hope these penguins realize how lucky they are to be in the presence of Dermot Mulroney’s abs.

The 25 Sexiest Best Actor Winners Ever

The 84th Annual Academy Awards will air this Sunday evening live from Los Angeles. 84th Annual. Do you know what that means? That adds up to 84 years of mostly attractive, wealthy people getting handed awards. And one thing even a blind person with an unusually high sex drive would admit: This year’s Best Actor nominees are some of the sexiest yet. Brad Pitt, George Clooney, Hot French Dude, Gary Oldman, Hot Mexican Dude. If I were a professional writer on the internet and this was 2008, one might even call them the “nom-nom-nominees.” It’s safe to say that Sunday’s Best Actor winner will also simultaneously be hot as sh*t.
