Random Photos Part Two - Oscar Lunch

Anne Hathaway is looking like her usual smug self. No bandanna yesterday. Oh, and if you have not seen "Anne" beg for an award, you must stop what you are doing and watch here.

Naomi Watts guards her back against Nicole Kidman knives.
Jennifer Lawrence has that frosted J-Lo look. I hope it is not permanent.
Jessica Chastain
Amy Adams
Quvenzhane Wallis
Hello Helen Hunt.
Sally Field
Ben Affleck
Hugh Jackman
Bradley Cooper (looks wax)
Joaquin Phoenix and his sister Rain which is interesting because it does not rain in Phoenix much.

VIPblonde said...

Oh good, he put up the pic of Joaquin and his sister/date. Remind anyone else of the brother/sister dating blind from last year?

mynerva said...

Those Phoenixes both look like they need delousing. Jesus, Hugh Jackman looks good!!

Sarah said...

That's what I was thinking, VIP. I think the popular guess was Colon Farrell, but this feels believable. Barf.

Krab said...

Totally reminded me of the brother/sister relationship from last year. you know it's really them.

NapAssasin said...

JLaw & Lena need some red carpet coaching like STAT.

Sarah said...

Jennifer Lawrence's dress and lip color are terrible , but this look with her hair, while bad, may still be the best I've seen on her in a while. She needs a new stylist for clothing and hair, stat.

Bellasmom said...

Just spent 3 days in Phoenix and yes it did rain. A lot!

skimpymist said...

Jlaw's dress is terrible. She should show off her curves not hide them.

dragon said...

Jessica <3

any one seen the pictures of Bradly and Leo dicatchoe shirts on vacation together? in the Balcony. I smell chemistry.

NapAssasin said...

And the Anne parody is pretty fuckin' funny. Good singer in the video. Do actors really make those videos!?

Tuxedo Cat said...

I'm glad Quvenzhane is confident enough to wear her puppy-purse. Time is running out for that sort of thing. I don't know what Suri would think of that.

Maja With a J said...

Glad to see I wasn't the only one who felt there was a blind item answer in this set of pictures! :)

Dagny said...

Damn, Helen Hunt looks goooood.

EmEyeKay said...

"And I did it all in one take, bitches..."

I thought Rain was gay?

Cute pic @Maja!

LottaColada said...

Jennifer Lawrence just got over the flu and pneumonia, I think the fake tan was to restore a "healthy" glow more so than a vanity thing.

I just know the Anne defenders will be here any second....

Violet E said...

I actually think jennifer looks lovely, that dress is all sorts of wrong though. Looks likes towel.

What is up with Anne wearing all black lately? It reminds me of Rooney Mara during her GWTDT days.

Sarah said...

That video was great

seaward said...

I love that every picture I see of Quvenzhane Wallis, she is holding one of those little cutesy animal purses. Adorable.

Gayeld said...

Is it just me or is Joaquin starting to look like he could be Judd Hirsch's long lost son?

I do not get the Bradley Cooper thing. Even before I started reading gossip blogs he looked unpleasant and smary to me.

J Sara said...

First thing I thought of too! Gag

Jessi said...

I am so skeeved out by the Phoenix siblings. Please take a shower both of you, but um NOT together! Yick.

jax said...

wasn't that blind mega old and about Heath and Michelle?

the Phoenix kids have had a tough life. their parents are batshit.

i miss River.

MISCH said...

Who's defending Anne...I haven't read anything but negative things about Anne...she is not well liked.

Lisa said...

There is a story on Perez about Leonardo DiCaprio, Bradley Cooper, Jonah Hill, Gerard Butler & Mel Gibson going into a Miami nightclub Story Friday night.
Then on Sat all of them meeting up with Halle Berry and her fiance at a VIP hotspot called Liv.

prolixe said...

OMG - that video was amazing! The lady singing blows Anne out of the water. (And I'm one who likes AnnE!)

Aw, poor JLaw, she doesn't look very good here. Hope she's feeling better and get into a dress that doesn't look like a broken lightbulb.

I have never gotten the nude shoes with a black skirt thing. Black is perfect.

That little Quve - great dress, adorable young lady.

Helen looks good!

There were some guesses for Sally Field for the blind about an actor with cancer. She looks pretty healthy here.

OK, Ben, we got it.

Brother & sister Phoenix look a bit skeevy.


Del Riser said...

I'm not at all impressed with Anne.

I am thrilled to see eight full length pictures of ladies and not a pee-pee crossed leg in the bunch!

When Quvenzhane was on Leno he asked if she knew what she was going to wear to the Awards, she told him the doggy purse for sure and she didn't know what dress yet. She is a doll!

Even if Joaquin took his tie off they wouldn't let him in the guys club. Hugh just stands like a man doesn't he?!

Sherry said...

I forget, is it tears or something else when she accepts the award? I listened to AnnE's version and honestly it wasn't bad. I simply cannot sing when I am crying. Impossible. I have to throw credit at her for that. Honestly it looks like she threw her heart into the role. I cannot say as I blame her for wanting to win the awards. Sorry Lotta!!

LOVE Amy Adams dress as well as how Jessica Chastain looks. But the dress on JLaw..Heard that Zoe was her stylist. Okay, Jennifer, sweetie, please fire her now before she does something mean and hideous to you on Oscar night. The dress is all kinda fug.

Can someone phonetically spell the little Wallis actress so I can pronounce her name please? I am usually good at that but I cannot figure this one out.

Sally Fields: Lovely as always. As is Helen Hunt. Her bod is still rocking although she is a bit thin.

auntliddy said...

They are like clones!!! Spooky!

msgirl said...

She said she has a collection of doggie purses!

Jessica needs a stylist stat!

Joaquim and his sister were the majority of guesses.

Green Wave Gal said...

I saw Beasts of the Southern Wild on Saturday. Holy Shitballs! It's amazing! The guy who.played her dad should have been nominated also (I don't think he was). I SOBBED! Don't judge. :)

auntliddy said...

Yeah, i dont get the anne hate.

Supermom said...

I can smell Joaquin from here.

I love Amy A but that dress is hideous. Helen Hunt looks fabulous. I used to like Anne but not as much anymore. She does look extremely smug in that picture.

Sunny said...

I think you would have to be a 6 ft leggy model to pull off the purple dress Amy Adams is wearing. Not loving it on her small stature

I love Jennifer Lawrence's nude makeup in this photo! And I totally want her hair here, and in a few weeks time it will be mine. Bwua ha ha ha ha!!!!!! (Only because I'm bringing her photo to my colorist. I'm not going to chop off a lock of her hair like some psycho stalker. Yet)

Does anyone think Jessica Chastain got a nose job after she filmed Zero Dark Thirty? It looks more defined to me now

Lola said...

@auntliddy, I don't get the Anne hate either and fail to see how she looks any more (or less) smug than anyone else does.

@Sarah, huh. I think JLaw usually looks stunning. That red dress from her Winter's Bone nomination...

dragon said...

Lmao supermom

Lola said...

@Gayeld. Bradley Cooper was unsettlingly good looking in SLP (which, btw, was an AMAZEBALLS picture). Kind of like in the Hangover. I think part of it is his eyes. Also, it seems like he doesn't photograph well (he always looks kind of pinched). I suspect he is amazingly handsome in person.

hotchacha said...

@Sherry: I think it's pronounced Qua-VEN-za-nay.

LottaColada said...

@Lola, that red dress got me all "who is that girl?" when she was posing on the red carpet. Absolutely stunning.

Patricia said...

I love me some Joaquin, I really do. But he's trying my patience with this whole "weird phase". It's got to stop. I need more Inventing the Abbotts, and less whatever this is.

MadLyb said...

Hugh Jackman looks positively dashing, and Helen Hunt looks beautiful. Some of Bradley Cooper's hotness rubbed off or something.

That blind definitely popped in my head when I saw Phoenix and Rain.

After seeing all those pics, I've decided that I need to see SLP, Argo, The Master, and The Sessions before the Oscars.

Tania said...

Lol I love the comment about the Nicole Kidman knives!

GatorGirl said...

I wish I was skinnyrexic as Helen Hunt looks! Jealous...

Mango said...

AnnE has no self-awareness at all. None. Nada. Zip.

Where's Shelly? said...

Oh yeah VIP Blonde, you know it, it's the brother sister live in lover blind, come back to smack us in the face with their family lovin. Hey whatever makes those crazy kids happy, just don't reproduce, don't rub it in our faces. I really want Naomi Watts to win it. Or Chastain. Chastain, Hathway and all the youngies have time, Watts... wellllll let's just say there's not too many parts for forty something women in the day to day, and it's not like Liev Schreiber is on that forbes hollywood dollar return listy thingy. Although, there's nothing wrong with Liev Schriebr, oh i give up. I want Naomi to win now. Since Nic Kidman is such a backstabbing c word.

curlyhairslacker said...

Dibs on Naomi's dress!!!

Gayeld said...

@ Lola. He must be better looking in person, because every picture I see is that pinched/skeevy look. I remember looking at his picture when he was cast in The A-Team and thinking "Faceman? I don't think so."

JSierra said...

Green Wave I looooved that film! My friends and I also cried like babies, in fact we were all cursing Little Q for making us sob with her performance.

That blind made me want to vomit then and it makes me want to vomit now. IRC it did mention that the brother would bring the sister as his date for red carpet events all the time. Seems like we have a winner here.

All about Eve said...

That video about Anne was great!

Jennifer Lawrence doesn't look too good here, she looks gray to me. Other than her I think all the ladies look great.

Hugh Jackman is so hot!!

Joaquin and his sister look creepy.

lzahart said...

Can someone explain the Nicole Kidman/knives comment?? I thought she and Naomi were BFF.

Love Quvenzhane, sorry, I totally think she should win, I have seen all the films the best actress nominees are in and she blows them all away. She carried an unbelievable film entirely on her back under the age of 10. I cried too (and also thought the dad should have gotten a nom). However the cynical part of me thinks that Weinstein Production Jennifer Lawrence will be picking up the award instead.

Hoping Zero Dark Thirty does not get any awards... not into the glamourization of torture a la 24 especially when the CIA admits it was not useful or neccesary in this particular instance.

And finally ew- it totally is Joaquim and Rain- gross. The Lannisters do it better!

B. Profane said...

lzahart, via proxies the CIA does a lot of things worse than waterboarding.

katydid said...

If I remember correctly it was between him and Colin Farrell. Gross.

Chicky said...

It looks like Amy A. raided grandma's closet for that dress - not very Alba of her...

Robin the Mad Photographer said...

Perhaps the best thing about Zero Dark Thirty is the fact that it's dragging torture into the light--it could be argued that Kathryn Bigelow is actually performing a public service by making people see that yes, this did happen, and now what are we going to do? At least people are talking about it, which is better than keeping it hidden & pretending it didn't exist...

I don't think Jennifer looks that bad; I had pneumonia when I was just a few years older than her, and I looked and felt a whole lot worse than she does. A colored dress might have helped perk her up a bit more, though, which you always need when you've been sick. Love the colors in Amy's dress, and think most of the nominees look decent, especially the little girl, who's such a cutie pie I just want to give her a big hug. :-)

Yes, I remembered the sibling blind, too; as warped as it would be if it's (a) true, and (b) the Phoenix sibs, I can almost understand how it could happen--when you've been through the kind of childhood they had together, not only might it screw up your perspective on relationships, but it might well be oddly comforting to be with someone who understands all too well what you went through, because they did as well. On the fashion front, they don't look dirty to me as much as scruffy & rumpled, although I think a dress in a shade that isn't so close to her skin tone might be more flattering on her coloring. JMHO...

Alma said...

I love your new pic!

hairydawg said...

Joaquin totally has that "I'm fucking my sister" look on his face. I don't get the Anne hate. She's been doing solid work for thirteen years or so. Let the girl have her time in the sun.

B. Profane said...

Anne Hathaway is probably extremely ambitious. So were Katherine Hepburn and Elizabeth Taylor. All three are/were excellent actresses.

How do you think Liz won an Oscar for Butterfield 8? It wasn't a very good film and neither was her performance. She got it for overall merit and likely by working the system. Can't blame Anne for doing the same thing.

Lola said...

@Madlyb...SLP is seriously one of the best pictures I have seen in years (and I see a lot of movies), the person I was with said the same thing. I am not at all surprised, after seeing it, by JLaw's wins so far and seriously think that had DDL not nailed Lincoln so perfectly, that BC would have swept his category. He was just that good.

Sunny said...

I agree with Lola, Madlyb. Silver Linings Playbook was fantastic, and all the actors in it were perfect in their roles. I also Zero Dark Thirty a couple weeks ago. I can't really see why Jessica Chastain was nominated for that movie - nothing about her performance really stood out to me (although I did develop a crush on that tall drink of water who played Dan (Jason Clark)

lzahart said...

@bprofane I do understand that but don't think torture should be so glamourized as it is today, btwn Homeland and ZDT and all the various other spy shows. I do believe that torture is not a ethical way to obtain credible information, and showing it as such only perpetuates the myth and puts the public perception further away from the principles we claim to espouse a la the Geneva Convention. Perhaps it is good to be bringing it to light in such a way... but the way it is portrayed in ZDT or Homeland or 24, etc, it makes it seem like there is no other way to gather certain intelligence, so its a necessary evil/privilege of the United States. I do not accept that and many in the intelligence community do not either (despite the fact that their organizations may engage in it).

And yes AnnE's father is a big shot M&A lawyer I imagine she is Type A all the way. And I can't hate on her, she has talent, she's ambitious... in my job, that's a good thing! Why shouldn't it be in hers?

Sarah said...

Yeah, part of the blind was that the family was cool with it. Their family is so strange, I could see them being fine with it

Sarah said...

The red dress was her red carpet high point for sure. She's had a lot of misses since then, for having a killer body and cheekbones. Her stylist doesn't seem to get her hair right, IMO.
I'm not saying she never looks good, just that her stylists aren't killing it considering what they're working with.

Sarah said...

God, that's extra

Sarah said...

Zoe makes sense, OF COURSE Rachel Zoe doesn't know how to dress curves!

Sarah said...

Joaquin and Rain were both with River when he overdosed. They have remained very close, and I'm sure that gave them a bond beyond their other family members from the shared experience. Combine that with their hippie dippy, free love upbringing, and moving around often, I guess I can see it.

NoraRose said...

An article about Rain below. She lives around the block from Joaquin

http://m.guardiannews.com/lifeandstyle/2011/jul/09/rain-phoenix-river-joaquin-family

Agent**It said...

Joaquin and River were brought up in the religious cult the Children of God. It was a horrific cult. It really wasn't hippie, free loving, it was about having sex with children.

MrWolf said...

I also loved Beasts of the Southern Wilds. Of course I didn't cry during it, being to busy forging metal, but I liked it nonetheless.

It's hard to root against my crush on Jennifer Lawrence but I definitely think Q Wallis had the best over all performance. (Don't worry J Law, I had your back for winter's bone.)

Anne's gorgeous, smart, rich and successful. I think she's entitled to a little smugness. She doesn't have as much of it as Kim Kardashian and it she deserves it more.

I think to two biggest snubs of the season - The dad in Beasts of the Southern Wilds and the son in The Impossible. Unforgiveable that they didn't receive more accolades then they did.

High Heels said...

Yeah, my immeadiate thought about the Phoenix pic too!That icky blind! The dress on Rain is just all kinds of wrong, the colour, the shape, the material, the cheap clutch. A little more "done" hair would've also helped a bit!

Lately when ever I see a picture of Jennifer Lawrence, I want to like her look, but I just never do. Clueless stylist. Her dresses are too boring for her personality and her make up is often too strong. So frustrating, cause I style people for living myself and I totally wanna save her! Call me Jen!

Jane Doe said...

Poor Rain, she looks like Beavis. :(

Sarah said...

Ben looks so puffed up

Leisa said...

Rachel Zoe is indeed JLaw's stylist and hasn't been hitting it out of the park very often.

greenmountaingal said...

If AnnE were to disappear in the Bermuda Triangle, I wouldn't be upset.

Joaquin has been my celebrity boyfriend since forever. I love him. His sister is fug, however.

I'm over JLaw.

I like Jessica Chastain's dress. It's different and looks good on her.

Amy Adams looks terrible.

Bradley Cooper looks delish. I hate myself for saying that.

Whenever I see Sally Field, all I can think of is Not Without My Daughter.

Alexis makeme said...

I read that Rachel Zoe has been hired since Nov/Dec 2012. That explains the disastrous outfit lately.

megan00m said...

Can find blind on sib love..please link...gross but I have to read!

Sherry said...

Thanks Hot
ChaChaCha..

MrWolf..Forging metal? Are you a blacksmith? My husband is so that pricked up me ears.

Kloie said...

The Phoenix siblings look like they should have played the Innkeeper & his wife in Les Mis (the Thedeniers).

Worstcompanytoworkfor said...

Why is it River looks NOTHING like the 2 of them?

OSCARS= you pray, you play, you pay or you get lucky...that is all.

PugsterMom said...

Lola, thank you for using the word "amazeballs" in a sentence. My teenage daughter freaks when I use it; she thinks it's awful. I think it's adorbs. ;)

Helen, you're amazing. Please win Oscar. I loved "The Sessions" -- did any of you see it?

K Dub said...

I disagree completely about torture being glamorized in ZDT. I felt it was portrayed very straightforwardly and without being melodramatic. And the fact that it didn't lead to usable info would suggest that the film is not "pro-torture". I think Homeland is far guiltier.

JSierra said...

MrWolf ITA about Tom Holland, he was incredible in The Impossible. I was really impressed with that movie in general, but his performance really stood out and was beyond moving.

SLP was a great movie but Quvenzhane was Beasts of the Southern Wild. She made the movie the great film that it is and IMO with any other actress, it would not have been the same. I can't choose between Little Q and Jen, why can't they both win!


GMG I second that Anne sentiment.

NL said...

Did JLaw get her lips done?

DontRainOnMyPrada said...

I think helen hunt has gone way too far w the Botox and she looks like a freak in the scene they showed from her nominated movie. I'm not seeing what y'all are seeing.

MissInfo said...

Thanks VIPBlonde (couldn't find it) - and I totally believe the blind is about them. I think the insinuation about the family being ok with this is due to them being ex-members of The Children of God (damn cult now known as Family International). Sick!

Lelaina Pierce said...

I haven't seen all the nominated films yet. Does AnnE really deserve the Oscar if she's only in 10min of the film?

Quvenzhane was on Ellen last week. So cute! Since she was plucked from obscurity, I'm interested to see her performance.

megan00m said...

Thanks VIP!

AuntJess said...

I think she got it right after mike Todd died in the plane crash too
