Thank You, Elle, for Protecting Our Eyes From *Gasp* Mindy Kaling's Body
I rather liked Jennifer Lawrence’s on-the-fly answer to why she fell down when sprinting up the stairs to receive her first Oscar. It was something along the lines of “have you seen my dress?” Here she gives a longer, more thorough explanation of what was going through her head. I’ve included a dramatic reenactment photo just below the link. (Vulture)
On the opposite end of the “how do you charmingly handle an awkward on-stage incident” spectrum we have Michael Bay who literally fled the stage at the CES conference yesterday when his teleprompter broke down. The statement he released is actually (dammit) kind of winning, but the CES video cannot be missed if you need a little Baydenfreude to kick your morning into high gear. (FilmDrunk)
Kaley Cuoco, she who puts the bang in The Big Bang Theory, released her wedding video and I’m going to rank her slightly above Janice from Friends and just below Sofia Vergara on the disappointingly grating scale. So pretty. So, so loud. (DListed)
My favorite post of the year, The Millions annual “Most Anticipated Books” list, is out! Let’s wax pretentious about the new Karen Russell, Emma Donaghue and Murakami, shall we!? (The Millions)
And while we’re on the subject of great YA, here’s a pretty little chart of all the best lines and jokes and references from The Fault In Our Stars. (TCB)
I have an unlikely partner in my one-woman quest to get McConaughey and Leto Oscars for Dallas Buyers Club. Only this advocate is a WEE bit more famous than I am, looks better in tights and has offered up her Oscar to Matt if he doesn’t win one on his own.
Previously on “Cameron Diaz Spouting Off A Lot Of Opinions About Her Body” we were treated to some ideas on a lady’s downstairs. Today, Diaz is talking about fully embracing whatever the hell is happening to her face. It’s called time and we should all be down with it lest we be subjected to world of Anna Faris not being able to move her upper lip in I Give It A Year. (Celebitchy)
Unreality has a list of The Five Most Disappointing Movies of 2013 and accidentally misspelled Man Of Steel as “F-R-O-Z-E-N.” How embarrassing for them. (Unreality)
You can call it coincidence if you like, but it’s a little suspect that the one plus-sized (if she even qualifies for that adjective) actress of color is shot in close-up and black and white. Then again, maybe they’re intentionally stirring the hornet’s nest of our outrage with that crop to make us forget about whatever it is Allison Williams is wearing. It didn’t work. (Yahoo)
On the plus side, they did shoot (skinny, blonde) 42 year-old mother of two Amy Poehler like this. Yow-f*cking-za. Is this what a regular Kroll-ing will do to you? Yes please.
For your hibernating Snowpocalypse pleasure, Dustin has ranked the 25 best series currently available on Netflix Instant. Get a-bingeing. (Uproxx)
FSR has a little more information on Saturday Night Live’s newest cast member, Sasheer Zamata. Get excited, y’all. (FSR)
Finally, this is what we like to see in a man in the 21st century. You can have it all, fellas, if you lean in.
