The Blemish » oscars Better than a slap to the face Fri, 10 Oct 2014 19:56:18 +0000 en-US hourly 1 Andrew Garfield May Not be the Monster We Thought He Was Fri, 07 Mar 2014 00:33:24 +0000 A report from Page Six said that a Batkid segment was cut from the Oscars because Andrew Garfield, who was supposed to take the stage with 5-year-old Miles Scott and introduce him as a superhero, never showed up.

“The academy was going to make him an official superhero during the Oscar ceremony. Andrew Garfield was going to appoint him ‘Batkid.’ But, in the middle of the dress rehearsal, Garfield decided he didn’t like his lines,” said a well-placed source.

“Garfield refused to go by the script. He came up with his own lines. The producers felt that Garfield’s [rewrites] were not appropriate. Garfield had a tantrum. He stormed off. Miles and his family, who were at the rehearsal, were devastated.”

Producers decided to cut the segment and sent Miles to Disneyland as a way of saying sorry.

However, Garfield said he didn’t bail and that the Academy decided to nix the idea at the last minute. Sources say Garfield did the dress rehearsal Saturday but was told via email later in the day that it didn’t fit with the tone of the show and had to be cut.

In return, Garfield actually spent the day at Disneyland with Miles on Monday and even did a mini Oscars ceremony in Scott’s hotel room. Turns out he isn’t that bad.

So either the Academy cut the segment, Andrew Garfield’s publicist told him to do this or, a third option, Marvel really didn’t want to promote DC.

The Oscars Pizza Delivery Guy Got a $1,000 Tip Tue, 04 Mar 2014 18:29:37 +0000 Ellen Degeneres had the guy who delivered the pizzas at the Oscars on her show so she could finally give him the tip that she collected inside Pharrell Williams’ dorky hat. The guy, who co-owns Big Mama’s & Papa’s with his brother, ended up with a $1,000 tip and probably a lot of publicity for his pizza place. $600 of the tip was from the hat and another $400 was from Ellen’s pocket.

Edgar Martirosyan, the delivery guy, said he thought he was going to be delivering it to a bunch of writers and was shocked when they brought him into the Oscars.

The guy said he’s a big fan of Julia Roberts so it’s a good thing he didn’t try to shake her hand or anything because she seems like the person that would scream, “Don’t touch me!,” and then kick him in the nuts.

Jennifer Lawrence Wasn’t Wearing Underwear Mon, 03 Mar 2014 18:11:25 +0000 Last night, Jennifer Lawrence showed up at the Vanity Fair Oscars Party wearing a Tom Ford dress without underwear. When I read that, I tried staring at the dress for a good 5 minutes to try and see through it but those stupid pieces of metallic shattered-glass kept reflecting light and blinding me. What’s up with that? It’s like Jennifer Lawrence doesn’t even want us to see her naked.

If you haven’t gotten enough of Jennifer Lawrence already, here’s a best of video for you.

Notes From the Oscars Mon, 03 Mar 2014 17:57:43 +0000 So you watched the Oscars and you were left bored and wondering why Jessica Biel was even presenting (she just wanted to know what one smelled like). Well, some other stuff happened last night. Like Benedict Cumberbatch photobombing U2.

Then there was Ellen DeGeneres buying everyone pizza which made Kerry Washington real happy.

Especially since Brad Pitt was serving it.


Brad also ate a slice while Angelina Jolie sat next to him looking hungry.


Kristen Bell probably didn’t eat any of it though because she hid a burrito in her clutch.

Of course there was that selfie everyone talked about where Jared Leto was cut off.


And Ellen collected donations in Pharrell Williams’ stupid hat.


More importantly, Amy Adams started playing with her chest.


I could watch that all day. In fact, you know what? I will. Right now. Just going to close my door and stare at this for the next 8 hours.

Jennifer Lawrence Might Have a Problem, She Fell Again at the Oscars Mon, 03 Mar 2014 08:39:08 +0000 Remember last year at the Oscars when Jennifer Lawrence tripped and fell while going up to accept her award? It was adorable and awkward and the world fell in love with Jennifer Lawrence. Well, it happened again this year on the red carpet when she tripped over a cone.


People say the second time is a charm (I’m going to use it as charming in this case) but now I’m wondering if she’s not half-retarded or something and people are just mistaking it for adorable awkwardness.

Now’s Your Chance to Decide Who Looked Better at the Oscars Mon, 03 Mar 2014 07:17:43 +0000 The Oscars took place Sunday night and as expected, 12 Years a Slave took home Best Picture while Leonardo DiCaprio still didn’t win anything. Meanwhile, Gravity took home 7 awards, new star Lupita Nyongo’o won Best Actress in a Supporting Role, Jared Leto actually won Best Actor in Supporting Role for Dallas Buyers Club and Cate Blanchett and Matthew McConaughey rounded out the rest with Best Actress/Actor.

But what’s obviously the most important thing is what everyone was wearing on the red carpet. Clothes. They were wearing clothes. Some of them from famous designers probably. Sure, the Academy gets to decide who won Best Picture but it’s us who decide which celebrity gets the most ridicule. This year that honor belongs not to a woman, but a man. Pharrell Williams up top. He looked like a German schoolboy.

Ellen DeGeneres’ Selfie Broke the Record for Most Retweeted Tweet Mon, 03 Mar 2014 05:27:48 +0000 Samsung was probably banking on getting maximum exposure after buying out the Oscars and, lucky for them, they did and then some. Ellen Degeneres took a selfie of her and a bunch of other stars at the Oscars with a Note 3 and tweeted it. In only a few hours, it became the most retweeted tweet on Twitter and now sits at almost 2 million retweets.

The last tweet to have so many retweets was President Obama’s 2012 election win tweet which is sitting at 780k. Clearly, this one smashed that record. Obama should be ashamed of himself.

Jennifer Lawrence Wins Best Actress, My Heart Mon, 25 Feb 2013 18:13:16 +0000 After winning Best Actress at the Oscars last night, Jennifer Lawrence took a shot and hit up that room where a bunch of numbers in seats ask her questions about her win. She handled the questions pretty well even though some of them were awful like, “What was the process of getting ready. How many people helped you. What was the process today to get to the big moment.”

Christ, you get to ask Jennifer Lawrence a question and you ask her what it was like to put on a dress? What do you think it was like? She took a shower and put on a dress. Which is exactly what Jennifer told the guy. Sure, she padded it with some details saying the house was chaotic and she felt like Steve Martin in Father of the Bride but that was just for his benefit.

That guy probably jerks it listening to girls describe how they get dressed and gets off when they mention “Armani” and “cap sleeves” in the same sentence. What a perv.

Bonus: Jennifer Lawrence gets starstruck meeting Jack Nicholson.

Kristen Stewart Was Disheveled and Limping Last Night Mon, 25 Feb 2013 17:34:47 +0000 Last night at the Oscars, Kristen Stewart was walking the red carpet on crutches and looking pretty disheveled. Turns out it wasn’t date night with Chris Brown.

According to her makeup artist, Beau Nelson, Kristen “cut the ball of her foot, quite severely, on glass two days ago.” Adding that she’s in “a little bit of pain.”

Translation: Kristen Stewart got really high the other day, dropped her glass bong and accidentally stepped on shards of broken glass.

No explanation as to why she looked like she just rolled out of bed but looking like the dirtiest hippie in the room is sort of her calling card now.
