Making the most of a fabulous evening, a bevy of beautiful models showed up at the Vanity Fair Oscar Party hosted by Graydon Carter last night (February 24).
Alessandra Ambrosio showed off her killer figure while hamming it up with legendary Italian designer Valentino Garavani inside the Sunset Tower in West Hollywood.
Furthermore, Rosie Huntington Whiteley, Karolina Kurkova, and Irina Shayk all stopped by to chat with fellow celebrities and enjoy the top-notch spread.
It’s the undisputed biggest night of the year for the entertainment industry, and the 85th Academy Awards will definitely be an epic event on Sunday (February 24).
Highlighting the biggest and brightest stars in film, this year’s Oscars judges had a wealth of options from which to choose, including Best Picture nominees “Amour,” “Argo,” “Beasts of the Souther Wild,” “Django Unchained,” “Les Miserables,” “Life of Pi,” “Lincoln,” “Silver Linings Playbook,” and “Zero Dark Thirty.”
Meanwhile, the Best Actor category is up for grabs for gents like Bradley Cooper, Daniel Day-Lewis, Hugh Jackman, Joaquin Phoenix, and Denzel Washington, and the Best Actress hopefuls include Jessica Chastain, Jennifer Lawrence, Emmanuelle Riva, Quvenzhane Wallis, and Naomi Watts.
In addition to all the glitz and glamour of the actual awards, there’s always plenty of memorable moments, quick-witted quotes, and charming banter, and this year will be no different thanks to host Seth MacFarlane.
Here’s a look at some past Oscar greatness, and be sure to stay linked to the GossipCenter for full coverage of this weekend’s 85th Academy Awards festivities.
Well, you can throw out all your dumb, stupid posters for this year’s Oscar nominees, because here come some better ones. Like Gallery1988 did earlier in the month, Mondo is releasing some designer prints based on the latest crop of Academy Award contenders, and they’ll be available for sale here starting Sunday. Right now, they’ve only revealed designs for ParaNorman, Les Misérables, and The Master (latter two below), but more will reportedly show up for order during the Oscar telecast, and as you can tell from the current batch, Mondo is thankfully taking cues from more than just the Best Picture category. So there’s still a chance for a poster inspired by Naomi Watts in The Impossible. Hope lives.
No more accusing the Oscars of just copying off the Golden Globes to figure out what the good movies were. This awards season, the always-exciting elderly white men at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences are shaking things up a bit by announcing nominees three days before the Golden Globes, on January 10–an earlier date than usual to accomodate said old white dudes getting confused with the new electronic voting, which is also making its debut this year. What a historic year in awards, you guys! And Lincoln is still probably going to win them all.

Will Sandra Bullock win the Best Actress Oscar in the same year as she won the Worst Actress Razzie?
Question by genuine_jon: Will Sandra Bullock win the Best Actress Oscar in the same year as she won the Worst Actress Razzie?
What are the odds of this down-to-earth Hollywood stalwart pulling off the double? In-spite of her sometimes reckless acceptance of put-bread-on-the-table parts, Bullock has more than once demonstrated talent to raise her to the top of the acting pile. Let’s hope that Members of the Academy make amends for previously overlooking her outstanding contribution to Crash, by this time doing the right thing.
Answer by BritneyBitch
Really, It won’t be the right thing if she wins. Her performance was good, but any other decent actor could have portrayed that character. Theywill probably give it to her though because she has been self promoting, and often they base it on who has won before, if they have ever recieved an oscar and the self promo they do although that should not be the case at all. Meryl Should win as her
performance was fantastic but she might lose to Bullock because she has won 2. She is long overdue though, having not won in 27 years. The race is between those two really.

A rare Bill Murray-heavy film to not be driven by an auteur’s distinct voice or Garfield’s love of lasagna, Hyde Park on Hudson is an adaptation of a BBC radio play about a weekend of monarch-meeting and wild, wild cousin love for noted cousin-lover/president Franklin Delano Roosevelt, played by Murray. The film comes from Notting Hill director Roger Michell, and dramatizes the true story of the weekend King George VI and Queen Elizabeth (the main characters from The King’s Speech, for those whose history is mostly informed by Colin Firth) visiting FDR’s upstate New York cottage. It was also, notably, the weekend FDR supposedly decided his relative (Laura Linney) was lookin’ all-right, and got a little something going on the side with her.
Hyde Park‘s end-of-year release date, inclusion of a beloved actor doing a historical impression, and underlying resonance of King’s Speech stuttering have already made the film a presumptive competitor in the next Oscar race, but this first trailer almost seems to shrug that off, playing like a light-hearted, trifling romantic-comedy-of-manners. Regardless, Murray seems as likable as always, even when doing an FDR voice, and it’s a joy to see him once again alongside Olivia Williams and channeling his frustrations into scotch and cannonballs. Your brain’s Rushmore center will be extremely stimulated.
