Eddie Storms Out After Sore Loss

2/27/2007 10:42 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Eddie Murphy was so steamed after losing his Oscar race to Alan Arkin, that he stormed off – and out of the Kodak Theater altogether.

Several sources report that Murphy was a real sore loser after the Best Supporting Actor was awarded – in an admittedly huge upset – to Arkin. The funnyman was decidedly not smiling as he left his seat, and didn't stick around to see co-star Jennifer Hudson win Best Supporting Actress, or watch the ladies of "Dreamgirls" sing their lungs out.

Meanwhile, Brad Pitt's absence from the show, even though he starred in one film that was nominated for Best Picture ("Babel"), and co-produced the eventual Best Picture winner ("The Departed"), was chalked up, as Page Six reports, to his shooting in New Orleans ... and that he wasn't nominated for anything.

"Idol" Vixen's Friends Say Sex Pics are Low Blow


Antonella Barba – the "American Idol" contestant who stirred up plenty of controversy last week with some racy photos – might be something of a sexpot, but she's not a porn star, at least according to her best friend.

In an interview with the Star-Ledger of Newark, Amanda Coluccio, who auditioned with the 20-year-old Barba in Hollywood, says that although some of the salacious snaps – like of Barba in various states of undress – are real, the ones of her engaged in a certain sex act are not. And the proof? Acrylic nail tips. "She's never had tips in her life. She's the least slutty person I know," affirms Coluccio.

One local resident, 17-year-old Mark Dillon, shares an interesting New Jersey-ite custom with the AP: "At least half the people in this town have pictures of their friends on the toilet. I've personally seen at least 20," referring to a pic of Barba mid-micturition.

Does Tom Have Katie in a Trance?


But seriously – what the Xenu is up with Katie Holmes? TMZ noted yesterday that girlfriend seemed a bit, shall we say, "scripted" walking the red carpet at an event on Saturday night, and then Us observes today that Holmes refused to take a picture at the Vanity Fair after-party without her master husband, even though Tom Cruise was urging lensmen to snap her solo. What's more, Holmes appeared to be led around by the hand by Cruise, says Us, "while he mingled and she remained silent." She would dutifully wait while Tom gabbed away, then follow him.

Party Favors: So Did Babwa Really Diss Rosie to Trump After All? ... Mirren Having Tea with Real Queen ... Van Halen Reunion Blows Up


When she was caught in the middle of the Rosie-Trump fracas, Barbara Walters says she didn't say all those nasty things about Ro to the Donald, as he so famously claimed. But, according to a profile of Babwa in New York magazine, Trump might not have been totally full of hot air. "She thinks she's saying something in private, and she doesn't expect it to be repeated. That's Barbara," says a producer. ...
Oscar winner Helen Mirren, after all her sweet-talking of Queen Elizabeth II at awards shows, may finally get an audience with the monarch herself, reports People. "We are looking at a number of options," says a Buckingham Palace spokesperson, adding frostily, "We are sure that the Queen will be pleased with Dame Helen's success." ... That Van Halen reunion we were all so stoked about? It's been "shut down," says a top official at Live Nation, the concert promoter, to the Los Angeles Times, because of what David Lee Roth calls "fragile politics."

Let's get this party started:

What's happened about Ryan O'Neal and his crazy children?

I'm outraged that Paul McCartney's wife is on Dancing with the Stars.... we're for Paul all the way.

What's that crazy astronaut doing?

Let Rosie leave The View then the ones who want to can watch her. The View will be fine without her.

Is it me or was this year the most lack-luster Academy Awards ever? Except for Boomers Meryl Streep, Jack Nicholson, Diane Keaton.... not much star power.

Who does TMZ think are the up and coming stars who were there? Who excites TMZ? Is it just me?????

Eddie Murphy is a sore loser. Maybe if he wasn't such a man whore, fathering a bunch of babies with different women, he would be given something worth while in his life.

As far as the sex pictures are concerned, DON'T TAKE THEM. I'm so sick of listening to girls and their friends defend themselves saying how, "she's not a slut" and "they were so long ago!" If you don't want those things to surface, DON'T DO IT. I've never taken slutty pictures in my life, and even if I did, I wouldn't put them into the hands of anyone I couldn't trust. If you're going to take those pictures, be prepared for someone to get ahold of them and publish them for their own pleasure. Yes, it's wrong; but if you don't want it to happen, don't do it. Especially if you plan on trying out for a national tv show later on.

Ah, yet ANOTHER primadonna from the set of DREAMGIRLS.....Shocker!

I saw the picks of Antonella, and I wouldn't want to see the same pics of my daughter....but, they were MUCH better then a lot of other pics circulating the internet.....look at Miss Teen USA, and Miss America......aren't they supposed to be American Idols too?

Tom TOTALLY had Katie in some sort of trance/cult thing.....she's a ROBOT......

I'm sure Barbara dissed Rosie in private....it's the way of the world, smile at both sides......

Barba? Not a porn star? Not quite yet, but give her time. It won't take long after she gets booted from Idol to start capitalizing on her booty, body and blowabilty. I just pisses me off that they let anyone who has professional ability in any form of sho biz or blow biz to be on "Idol". It was supposed to be the ordinary amature making good the old fashioned way with actual talent. "Looks" took over and now it nothing but a competion of " Pro Girls & Guys Gone Wild."

Eddie Murphy should have learned the Oscar rule: NO COMICS RECEIVE OSCARS.

Is David Lee Roth gay? Not that there's anything wrong with that.

American Idol is so boring this year. The winner already seems obvious and I don't see much originality in any of the contestants. Hey, Antonella Barba can't sing; she might as well show her tits.

Why were there so many lesbians at the Oscars? Did Ellen choose the presenters too?

She may not be a slut, but she was sure acting like one when she had those pictures taken on a NATIONAL MONUMENT! She isn't an American Idol either!

Eddie is a arrogant jerk. Everyone in the biz knows it. Why be surprised that he threw a hissy fit when he didn't win. He probably went out and picked up a few transvestites to cool off.

We, are not amused.    

Hey Eddie:
Time to get a new agent, you need to FIRE whomever it was that told you to release that movie with you playing yet another fat black woman before you got the prize! Every DUMBASS from here to Timbuktu knows the Academy does not give awards for comics, especially if you have a dramatic film out at the same time!
Moron!

Eddie Murphy is a sore loser with a capital L. He should be happy to have been nominated. Eddie if you are reading this, "don't be a sore losing pussy".
What are you going to tell your kids when they lose at something? Are you going to tell them to act like a big baby like you? lol

I knew that Van Halen tour was doomed. Given the fact that Eddie and Alex Van Halen can't stand David Lee Roth because he's an asshole. When they presented an award a few years ago, Roth was excited that they were back on stage together after 10 years, but afterward, Ed said that he now remembered why they got rid of DLR in the first place. They were better with Sammy Hagar anyway.

And, Kristen, Eddie Murphy doesn't have children by different women. He has 5 kids with his first wife, and the possible one that Scary Spice is carrying. It's not like he's Bobby Brown or anything.

Every nominee in every category wants to win, and thinks they might. Peter O'Toole has been nominated and lost eight times, and he sits there, with class. Eddie Murphy--you are a sore loser, and have no class, by storming out. You should be ashamed of yourself. And you should quit seeing yourself as so special---you are not.
