[New York Post] Which rich recovering dr*g add*ct sparked a panic after briefly disappearing in LA over Oscar weekend?
[Blind Gossip] During a recent weekend, this multiple Oscar nominee and this one-time Oscar nominee spent some time together. They watched some sports game together, had a few meals together, and participated in a few leisure-time activities together. All very innocent, right?
Multiple has a jealous male friend. He is an actor who » Continued
[Lainey Gossip] At a pre-Oscar party this weekend…
He’s young, super hot, and engaged. To someone also young, also hot, and arguably more famous, for now. But she wasn’t with him. Which is why he could focus all his attention on someone else — a beautiful girl made famous by a franchise who is growing out her hair while his fiancée currently prefers it the opposite way.
They were flirting for a long, long time. All » Continued
[Blind Gossip] This pair of esteemed actors didn’t show up to the Oscars this year.
They privately said that they weren’t attending because they weren’t nominated. But we know the real story! As former Oscar winners and Hollywood big shots, they were definitely invited to The Academy Awards. But they talked before the event and mutually decided not to go. Here’s why:

[Blind Gossip] During a post-show interview, one of last night’s Oscar winners was rambling on about fate and attitude and winning.
The philosophical mumbo jumbo was a bit too much for some onlookers. Several were rolling their eyes, and one said “What the f*ck is s/he talking about?” just loudly enough for » Continued
Did you watch the Oscars last night? Man, that was one tough gig for Seth McFarlane.
Blind Gossip readers went 3 for 4 in predicting the big winners! You correctly picked Jennifer Lawrence, Daniel Day Lewis, and Argo! Your only miss was for Best Director, which was given to Ang Lee. Overall, though, good job!
We have a BG12345 for you today… if we can get 100 of you to tell us what you loved or hated or what thrilled or annoyed or surprised you most about the 85th Oscars!
Let’s hear it, people!
UPDATE: Lots of interesting comments! Let’s start!
[Blind Gossip] The 85th Academy Awards will be broadcast this Sunday, February 24 at 4:00 pm PST on ABC.
For those of you who are not familiar with the Academy Awards voting process, here is a very brief description of how it works:
Each member of the Academy (The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences) belongs to one of 15 “branches” (e.g. the Directors branch). The members of each “branch” make nominations only within their branch (e.g. Directors nominate other Directors for “Best Director”). Then, once the nominees are selected by each branch, the entire membership votes for the winner.
You might think that if an Academy Member votes for a film, that they have actually seen the film. You might think that they select a Best Actress based on who they think gave the best performance that year. You might think that they can only vote for one film for Best Picture.
If you think those things, you would be wrong. This is Hollywood, people! Things don’t work in such a straightforward way.
With that in mind, here is an interesting » Continued
[NationalEnquirer] This A-list star was having a boys-only gay bash in the late ’90s at his Hollywood Hills home when his then-wife (she’s now his ex) unexpectedly showed up at the front door. The actor’s bodyguard turned the Oscar-winning actress away because her hubby was busy hosting a slew of sexy young men!
[NationalEnquirer] Which former ’90’s sitcom star-turned-Oscar winner has cut off her mom and refuses to let her see her granddaughter? The actress is crazy about her dad and recently researched his family roots, but didn’t even bother looking into her mom’s ancestry!
[NationalEnquirer] Which star has let all the Oscar buzz she received go straight to her head? The once-humble actress now has an out-of-control ego and her old friends are shocked at the special treatment she now demands – from them!
[CDAN] #1 – When this Academy Award winning actor who rarely does television was single everyone used to love to go to his house to party. It turns out that our actor always feared getting recognized » Continued
[CDAN] As has been the case throughout the past week or so, many of these blind items interact with some of the same players appearing in more than one. Actor #1 is your puzzle piece this week to be joined with another blind. It seems to be Academy Award week this week in the blind items and today is no exception. This actress has not only been in this spot before, but has also won an Academy Award. This actress who is still very much an A list actress has not worked much in the past two years but still maintains that status. Much like The Backstabber, this actress also has tried to hold the title of the world’s sweetheart. Everyday though, our actress lives with a secret. A big secret. One that she thinks if revealed would cause her to lose any future roles and would also make the public at large feel like they could never trust her. Lets call her Secret Keeper.
For the past 20+ years our actress has been in the closet. » Continued
[CDAN] Let me start off by saying that this actress is A list. Huge star. Academy Award winner. Quite possibly also the coldest person on the planet. The only emotion you will ever see from this actress is on the set. Even when she has something truly awful happen to her, she shows nothing on the outside. Rage on the inside and she will make you pay, but solid calm on the outside.
Anyway, our actress has been married before. She is also currently married. Our actress has had a plan from day 1. Not day 1 of her career, but day 1 of meeting another individual who became a central part of her life and changed her » Continued
[CDAN] Let me tell you about this man who is an Academy Award winner. No fussing or messing about determining whether he is a nominee or winner. He is a winner. He is also alive and not that old. I would say that most of you would have dated him until you read about him right here. A bo*zer of epic proportions, he is apparently generally a nice guy until he gets some bo*ze in him. Over the years he has destroyed not only his share of marriages, but also put dates into the hospital and paid off hundreds of thousands of dollars to keep himself out of the spotlight. » Continued
