The Wow, The Meh, and The Cringey

The MTV Movie Awards has never been one to take itself too seriously. It’s for sure no Academy Awards or Golden Globes, especially with its emphasis on flashy effects, big-budget blockbusters, and younger audience appeal. To kick it off this year, MTV decided to host the awards outdoors on the Warner Bros. studio lot in Burbank, CA as opposed to the traditional theater venue, a risky move that was ultimately fun and innovative. Nevertheless, sometimes it outdoes itself in jaw-droppers and head-scratchers. Here are few of the most exciting moments of the night, whether spectacular or not.

MEH: Cursing Up a Storm and D*ck Jokes

The hosts never shied away from throwing in a swear every now and then, dropping F-bombs left and right. One of them being in reference to Leonardo diCaprio and his character’s encounter with a bear in The Revenant. Don’t watch with youngsters if you want to keep them pure.

CRINGEY: Teen Moms Joke

Zac Efron, Adam DeVine, and Anna Kendrick participated in a bit that at best falls flat and at worst makes fun of teen moms and MTV’s show 16 and Pregnant. In an effort to promote the three actors’ upcoming movie, Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates, the involves Anna setting up a dating audition for the two guys, but instead of the girls she picked out coming on stage, actors pretending to be pregnant teens come up instead. Like DeVine’s expression throughout the bit indicated, this joke was just distasteful.

Lots of other fun things like Alexander Skarsgård presenting an award pantsless, Rebel Wilson and Adam DeVine’s kiss, and The Lonely Island’s jiggy Will Smith Tribute happened too, but we’ll forever be scarred by that awful song about Leo and the bear.

Celebrity Tweets of the Week

Screen Shot 2015-04-12 at 5.19.15 PM

Sunday night marked the long anticipated season five premiere of HBO’s Game of Thrones. Joe Dempsie plays Gendry, friend of Arya and illegitimate child of former king, Robert Baratheon. Joe, always the jokester, pretended not to know what was on TV Sunday night, and asked fans for suggestions on what to watch. Hopefully we’ll see more of Gendry this season!

Another Game of Thrones cast member made headlines on Twitter this week. Fan favorite Nikolaj Coster-Waldau finally jumped on the bandwagon and joined Twitter. Nikolaj plays the morally ambiguous but extremely handsome Jaime Lannister. Surely there will be some great tweets to come from him.

TV host and comedian Billy Eichner decided to comment on the issue that was definitely the most talked about of the week: Madonna and Drake’s on-stage kiss at Coachella. While everyone was freaking out, trying to figure out if Drake really was that disgusted by Madonna, Billy wrote a snappy tweet that made fun of the whole incident. You go, Billy.

Saying, “Can’t wait for you to be our guest,” Josh Gad tweeted out the first picture of the Beauty and the Beast cast. Everyone was already very excited for this movie, but after seeing this picture, fans can hardly contain their excitement.

This week on Lip Sync Battle it’s Anna Kendrick versus John Krasinski. These two actors are hilarious so it should be a great show. There’s a clip circulating of one of Anna’s performances. While singing One Direction’s “Steal My Girl,” Anna reveals she is wearing a t-shirt with a picture of her and Emily Blunt in a heart; Emily is John’s wife. The clip is absolutely hysterical and it looks like it will be an episode you can’t miss.

Finally, while promoting the new Avengers movie, coming out May 1, Chris Hemsworth paid a visit to his wax figure that doesn’t really look anything like him. Buzzfeed circulated this hilarious picture. In other Avengers news, the cast had a guest appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live where they were put in teams and competed in Avengers Family Feud.

2015 Oscars Fashion Rundown

Now that all the awards are given out, it’s time to talk fashion. Who stunned on the red carpet? And who’s going to have everyone talking… but for the wrong reasons? Glamorous Paper is here to show you the best and worst looks of Hollywood’s biggest night.

Best Dressed

Lupita
Lupita Nyong’o in Calvin Klein.

An Oscar winner last year and a presenter this year, Lupita Nyong’o is no stranger to red carpet fashion, and she definitely did not disappoint. Lupita looked stunning in this Calvin Klein creation, which has 6,000 pearls embroidered on it. The gown flattered her amazing body and was unique enough to really stand out on the red carpet. As usual, Lupita is an effortless, classic beauty.

Anna Kendrick
Anna Kendrick in Thakoon.

Anna Kendrick looked absolutely beautiful in her pale coral Thakoon gown. The color goes perfectly with her skin tone, and the halter top is extremely flattering. Anna performed in the Oscars’s opening number with host Neil Patrick Harris and presented an award as well; she looked completely elegant while doing so.

Cate Blanchett
Cate Blanchett in John Galliano.

Like Lupita, Cate Blanchett was a winner last year and returned this year to present. As usual, Cate looked absolutely gorgeous. In a classic, black dress, Cate took a simpler route. However, she chose an outstanding Tiffany statement necklace that really made the look. From head to toe, this look is perfect.

Zoe Saldana
Zoe Saldana in Versace.

Zoe Saldana looked stunning in this pale pink Versace gown. It perfectly showcases her curves and really gives her that hourglass shape. The draping is in all the right places; Zoe looked great presenting on that Oscars stage.

Jennifer Lopez
Jennifer Lopez in Elie Saab.

Rounding out the best dressed list is presenter Jennifer Lopez in Elie Saab. While the dress has a plunging neckline, you can’t deny how beautiful and intricate the beading and sparkle is. Jennifer looked stunning in this nude gown.

Worst Dressed

Keira Knightley
Keira Knightley in Valentino.

While Keira Knightley is very beautiful, unfortunately her dress was not. A nominee for Best Supporting Actress, Keira wore this flowy Valentino gown to the Oscars, but it was not a winner. All the embellishments are a bit tacky, as well as the writing on the dress. The tan color does not make it stand out either.

Rosamund Pike
Rosamund Pike in Givenchy.

Rosamund Pike’s hair and makeup were lovely, but this dress simply did not work. The harsh red color clashes with the carpet, and the lace and cut just look trashy. The matching strappy shoes do not help the look either.

Nicole Kidman
Nicole Kidman in strapless, sequin gown.

Nicole Kidman’s strapless gown was pretty bad. The sequined dress is a strange, yellowed color and the red belt just looks like an afterthought. The big slit does nothing to liven up the look.

Jessica Chastain
Jessica Chastain in Givenchy.

While the navy color is nice, Jessica Chastain’s Givenchy gown is just not working. There are multiple straps that just look confusing, and the strange draping detail on the top doesn’t seem to have a purpose. Overall, the dress isn’t very flattering to her figure, either.

Naomi Watts
Naomi Watts in Armani.

While Naomi did not look terrible, this gown just seemed very strange. The bandeau top cheapened the look, and the pattern was a little confusing. The proportions of the top half seemed very off. However, the star’s hair and makeup did look very nice.

What do you think? Did you favorite look make the Best Dressed list? Let us know in the comments.

Harris reenacts a scene from Birdman on the Oscars stage.

Hollywood’s most glamorous night took place on Sunday and did not disappoint; the 87th Academy Awards, hosted by Neil Patrick Harris, was a wonderful, star-studded event. The red carpet was fabulous as usual, with so many stand out looks. The show started off with a bang when Harris and Anna Kendrick performed an extravagant musical number together. Harris’s easy humor shined right away when he joked about the lack of diversity among the nominees. He really livened up the show by doing one segment in his underwear (!), as well. Legend Meryl Streep introduced the In Memoriam segment, which was as moving as ever; it was followed by an emotional performance by Jennifer Hudson. Missed the show and need to know the winners? We’ve got the rundown of everyone who went home with an Oscar.

Patricia Arquette
Patricia Arquette delivers a feminist themed acceptance speech.

The first award of the night was Best Supporting Actor, presented by the fabulous Lupita Nyong’o, who was decked out in a gown with over 6,000 pearls. J.K. Simmons won the Oscar for his intense performance as a ruthless music teacher in Whiplash. Jared Leto (clad in a light blue tux, long hair flowing in the wind)  presented Best Supporting Actress, which went to Patricia Arquette for Boyhood, in which she played a mother over the course of 12 years. Her acceptance speech became one of the most memorable of the evening when she called for equal pay for women in the workforce. Cate Blanchett presented the award for Best Actor, which went to Eddie Redmayne for his portrayal of Stephen Hawking in The Theory of Everything. Finally, Matthew McConaughey presented the Oscar for Best Actress. The award went to Julianne Moore for Still Alice, in which she plays an Alzheimer’s patient. The biggest award of the evening was presented by Sean Penn; the winner of the Oscar for Best Picture was Birdman.

TGBH
The Grand Budapest Hotel and Birdman won the most awards for the evening.

The Oscars went to a wide variety of films, but there were clear leaders. The Grand Budapest Hotel had four wins: Best Costume Design, Best Makeup and Hairstyling, Best Original Score, and Best Production Design. Along with best picture, Birdman scored three more Oscars: Best Original Screenplay, Best Cinematography, and Best Director. Best Foreign Language Film went to Poland’s IdaWhiplash won the Oscar for Best Sound Mixing as well as the award for Best Film Editing, while Best Sound Editing went to Clint Eastwood’s American Sniper. The Visual Effects Oscar went to Christopher Nolan’s extravagant space epic, InterstellarBig Hero 6 won the award for Best Animated Feature. The story of Edward Snowden, CitizenFour, won Best Documentary Feature. The Imitation Game secured one Oscar for Best Adapted Screenplay. The screenwriter, Graham Moore, gave an emotional speech about embracing your uniqueness and working hard to achieve your dreams.

Legend and Common
John Legend and Common perform “Glory.”

There were many musical performances throughout the evening. Adam Levine did a beautiful rendition of Maroon 5’s  song, “Lost Stars,” from the film Begin Again. From The Lego Movie, Tegan and Sara performed “Everything is Awesome” along with The Lonely Island. Complete with a singing Batman and some dancing construction workers, it was certainly an unconventional Oscars performance to say the least. Tim McGraw paired his tux with a cowboy hat to perform the country hit “I’m Not Gonna Miss You.” Lady Gaga did a musical tribute to The Sound of Music. John Legend and Common’s performance of “Glory” (Selma) was incredibly powerful, and that went on to win Best Original Song.

All in all, it was a great night with a few surprises and plenty of stars. How close were your predictions? Let us know in the comments, and we’ll see you next year!
