Jennifer Lawrence is destroying everyone in her path. She got a taste for success when she won the Golden Globe for her role in ‘Silver Linings Playbook’. Yeah, she was a little dirty then when she wickedly laughed in Meryl Streep’s face for snagging the GG from her hands but that’s nothing compared to how she’s handling her Oscar competition.
When Jennifer won the GG, she said in her acceptance speech that she ‘beat Meryl!’. Everyone thought that she was being rude to a legend but really, that was just a quote from ‘The First Wives Club’.
But while she played it nice for the GG, the Oscars are a different story.
Jennifer hosted SNL and she trashed the fellow Oscar competitors. She laughed in their face and explained why they won’t be taking home the Oscar.
Here’s what she said- Jessica Chastain (Zero Dark Thirty): “Jessica Chastain? More like Jessica ain’t winning an Oscar on my watch.”
Naomi Watts: “You were in ‘The Impossible.’ You know what else is impossible? You beating me on Oscar night.”
Quvenzhane Wallis (Beasts of the Southern Wild): “What you talkin’ about Wallace? The alphabet called. They want their letters back.”
Emmanuelle Riva (Amour): “An 85-year-old French lady. Yeah. I think I can take you.”
The monologue wasn’t that funny but I liked the premise behind it. And I can’t help but love Jennifer.
Check out some SNL highlights below. What did you think of her performance?
Actually she already has… Shortly after Taylor’s army of tweens unleashed Twitter-war on poor clueless Michael J. Fox, Swifty issued the following cease and desist tweet:
“Hey everybody, Michael J. Fox got in touch with me today and we are good. Thank you for having my back.”
Of course, Michael J. Fox just simply said to reporters, what we all say behind Taylor’s back or on message boards–that her career-building strategy of writing songs about every guy she dates, is immature and bound to bite her in the butt.
Michael apparently regretted making that comment publicly though, so he gave Taylor a call to clear the air and offer her a formal apology.
But, that wasn’t Taylor’s only uncomfortable phone call this week. She also received one from Harry Styles… He too wanted to clear the air. However, this was NOT his idea. If it were up to him, he’d have just blown her off (like probably all the others). But, One Direction’s founder and manager, Simon Cowell, forced Harry to reach out to Swifty! I wish it was to teach the lads how to be stand-up kind of guys, but sadly Simon was just worried the band would lose some of its popularity in the U.S. The call seemed to go about as awkwardly as you’d expect…
An inside source said, “Harry spoke to Taylor on the phone while on a trip to Ghana with the One Direction boys this week… Taylor was keen to meet face to face and talk things through but Harry felt there was nothing left to be said…Harry told Taylor he didn’t hold grudges and hoped things wouldn’t be awkward when they saw each other. Taylor seemed to listen, but insisted there were still things they needed to discuss. The air has been cleared between them… and they’re due to see each other at next month’s Brit Awards, although friends think Taylor may pull out.”
The Golden Globes, the only place where television and motion picture film awards mix, were a huge success.
Tina Fey and Amy Poehler kept the audience laughing the entire show.. They even mocked Taylor Swift for her break-up with Harry Styles and warned her to stay away from Michael J. Fox’s son, who was this year’s Mr. Golden Globe.
Kristen Wiig and Will Ferrell brought the funny too. They purposely botched the plot lines for the movies nominated for Best Lead Actress in a Comedy or Musical and made up a story line based off of their titles.
Bill Clinton also made an appearance and received a standing ovation. Clinton gave an inspirational speech directed towards the movie Lincoln and even told Steven Spielberg that the movie was extraordinary.
And of course, we can’t forget Jodie Foster’s heart-wrenching speech where she came out of the closet after being presented the Cecil B. DeMille Award. It came as a surprise to many (What?? Jodie is gay???), but not her family and close friends. Jodie admitted that she gently broke the shocking news to them first.
Check out some of our fav Golden Globe moments below, along with a list of all the winners.
Anything we’re missing? What was your fav moment?
Even before Zero Dark Thirty won BIG at the Golden Globes, it was on pace to be the #1 grossing film of the weekend—the warm, fuzzy waterboarding flick earned $24 million. Its hot red head lead—Jessica Chastain—won Best Actress last night, which hopefully was in recognition of her amazing performance and not because those loony folks from the Hollywood Foreign Press think she really found Bin Laden.
In other weekend movie news, A Haunted House, the latest scary movie-esque spoof by Wayans’ world took second place over the much more expensive Gangster Squad, which came in third.
Other big winners last night were Argo and Les Miserables, which won Best Drama and Best Comedy/Musical, respectively. Ben Affleck showed the Oscars what’s up by winning the Golden Globe for Best Director. Another upset was Hugh Jackman receiving Best Actor in a Comedy/Musical over the crazy yet still sexy Bradley Cooper, in Silver Linings Playbook. Jennifer Lawrence however did win Best Actress in the oddly combined Comedy/Musical category. Django Unchained took home a bit of gold—Quentin Tarantino won best Screenplay and the über-talented and hilarious Christoph Waltz won Best Supporting Actor. Anne Hathaway won Best Supporting Actress for Les Miserables, which made her buzz cut totally worth it.
Below are the Top 5 box office performers this weekend:
1- Zero Dark Thirty brings home $24 million.
2- A Haunted House* debuted with $18 million.
3- Gangster Squad* premiere with $16 million.
4- Django Unchained unshackled another $11 million ($125 million total for 3-weeks).
5- Les Miserables (2012) sang and danced its way to another $10 million ($119 million total for 3-weeks).
Elton and Madonna were competing in the same category, Best Original Song in a Motion Picture. Madonna’s was for ‘Masterpiece’ in her movie W.E., and Elton’s song was ‘Hello Hello’ from Gnomeo and Juliet.
Carson Daily talked to Elton on the red carpet and was just mentioning who else was nominated in his category when Madonna’s name came up. Elton said, ‘Madonna doesn’t have a (effin) chance. When Carson called him out for those fighting words, Elton just replied, ‘No, those are actual words.’ (See vid below)
Later Elton’s husband, David Furnish, started getting in on the Madonna bashing too. After she won the statue for Best Original Song, he started going off on his facebook page. David wrote, “Madonna. Best song??? (Eff) off! Madonna winning Best Original Song truly shows how these awards have nothing to do with merit. Her acceptance speech was embarrassing in its narcissism. And her criticism of Gaga shows how desperate she really is.”
What do you think about this couple’s hatred for Madonna? Justified or jealousy?
