Shame was all over the place at The Oscars: Anne Hathaway trying too hard; James Franco not trying hard enough; dead Bob Hope getting more laughs than...
Co-host with Anne Hathaway at the Academy Awards show in Los Angeles, James Franco picks up his cell phone, a prop for peering into the dreams of the ...
During this year's Oscars, there was so much live blogging it could make you pine for zombies. Not that dead Tweeting would have been an upgrade, ther...
Where were Tom Cruise, Brad Pitt, Angelina, Rob Pattinson and Kristen Stewart when we needed them most?
