Awkward run-ins with your ex—yet another reason for celebrities to date someone outside the entertainment industry. Taylor Swift and Jake Gyllenhaal learned that lesson Sunday at the Vanity Fair Oscar's after-party. And according to People.com, the former couple looked like they were having more than just a friendly chat.
At last night's Oscars, Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis presented the awards for Best Animated Feature and Best Animated Short. Not such an odd presenter pairing, considering the two are co-staring in the soon-to-be-released Rom-Com Friends With Benefits, but these two have also been dodging rumors of alleged flirting. And to add more fuel to the fire, Justin Timberlake arrived at the Oscars without his long-time beau Jessica Biel (the singer/actor brought his mother with him instead). Justin and Jessica have been thought to be calling it quits for some time now, as the two are rarely seen out in public together anymore, and it's been suggested that Justin has been hooking up with many ladies—from The Daily Show's Olivia Munn to a few back-up dancers. And Mila (who seemingly arrived alone) recently broke off her seven-year relationship with former child-star Macaulay Culkin.
Last night's Academy Awards were funny and glamorous and, sure, a little bit boring and cheesy—but that's the Oscars, right? A list of the official winners of the 2011 Oscars is at the end of this post. But first, we're giving a few awards of our own.
"I'd like to be a mom within 5 years." Anne Hathaway told James Franco in a recent interview on Good Morning America, making inquiring minds wonder what kind of man will be hers when she is ready for motherhood. While the undeniable chemistry Hathaway enjoys with Franco is delicious and will make for a great Oscar Show, can Anne attract someone in real life with that kind of intoxicating chemistry and a good guy too? The collapse of her relationship with Italian real estate developer Raffaello Follieri in 2008 and the
Over the years, thanking your significant other has become commonplace at award ceremonies. Now, we just expect to hear some spouse-gratitude in pretty much every acceptance speech. But luckily, scattered between all the average shout-outs, are some super-sweet moments laced with a touch of romantic sentiment. With this list, we count down our top ten favorites.
We cannot wait for Oscar night, can you? The Academy Awards ceremony is Hollywood's premier event, and we sort of have a weakness for star-studded gatherings. Do you blame us? The designer gowns, the gold statuettes, the hot guys in tuxes... Sigh. But while the actors are getting dressed up to go out with their dates, we think you should stay in with yours. There are plenty of ways to have a fun Oscar-themed date night with your man before, during and after the telecast, so use this as a little guide for a the big evening. If you can't win an Oscar yourself, watching a few stars win one while getting closer to your S.O. really is the next best thing.
2011 Oscars here we come! We've watched the movies, studied the 83rd Academy Award nominations and created two lists. First predictions for who will win the Academy Award in each of eight categories, and who would win the 2011 Oscar if YourTango stuffed the envelopes. Our criteria? The most realistic, relatable, helpful and smartest portrayals of romantic relationships. Let us know if you agree with us and who YOU would choose to win the 2011 Academy Awards.
Relationships are an integral part of our real lives, so it's only fitting that they take center stage onscreen as well. Love-themed story lines were woven throughout this year's Oscar-nominated films, making for gripping, tragic, thrilling and wonderful entertainment. For better of for worse, some of the strongest cinematic moments focused on relationship dynamics, and we gleaned a few helpful lessons from the characters' struggles and triumphs. Take a look at the best onscreen pairings of the year, and then tune into the Academy Award telecast on February 27 to see which of them will score precious Oscar gold.
Every actress dreams of bagging that gorgeous golden Oscar statuette, but if the Best Actress Curse is to be believed, scoring an Academy Award means tanking a relationship (think Sandra Bullock, Kate Winslet and Reese Witherspoon, whose relationships fell apart within a year of their Best Actress wins). If the curse is real, can we then predict who will win the 2011 Best Actress by looking at whose love life is least stable? We hope not!
Which Oscar-Nominated Best Picture Film Is The Best Date Movie? : "Black Swan." Psycho-sexual-horror thriller = major adreneline jolt = perfect date-movie material. ''The Fighter." Inspirational films are great for gals, boxing is great for guys. 'Nuff said. ''Inception." This crowd-pleasing mind twister gives plenty to talk about afterwards. ''The Kids Are All Right." This indie drama is all about family and values—topics that make for a heart-warming date. ''The King's Speech." The inspiring marriage at the heart of this drama makes it totally date-worthy. ''127 Hours." The carnage is a great excuse to grab his arm—and to make us thankful that he still has them. ''The Social Network." Facebook has universal appeal, so this is a win-win for almost any couple.
The Golden Globes are fast approaching, which means awards season is now in full swing—and we're ecstatic. We love a glam gown, a great performance and a heartfelt acceptance speech (which we may have emulated in front of our bathroom mirrors, you know, once or twice). But we'll admit it—we also like to watch the telecasts for the few unpredictable acts that inevitably occur—especially the surprising, sometimes scandalous celebrity kisses. Here we take a look back at the shocking, hilarious, most talked-about lip-locking in award-show history.
I used to set couples up on blind dates, interview them afterward and then report it all to readers. Between studying the applications and conducting the interviews, I learned how to discern facts from what people said about themselves.
