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."

Here comes a slew of foolish posts.

Envy mad, because someone didntlike a movie....PUHLEEZE
Pretty please go back to whatever school of thought you belong to.

Havent seen the movie, but I like Beyonce song at the two award shoes, stellar performace, she defintley got somthing Hudson doesnt have
Hudsons Oscar is a flash in the pan, its nto goign to happen again adn she might she have inherit the oscar curse, because I dont see her in any more roles unless she hooks up with the Queen Latifah, however ungrateful as JH is I dont see much good coming her way....................seriously without IDOL I wouldnt even know her...its comforting for folks to think Idol is nothing but there are zillions of people with talent out there and it takes a show like idol to bring you to the public attention, no matter what a horrid show is...JH is in Hellywierd and must remember that its such a shallow place that thrives on kissing ass wether you like em or not you blow them air kisses, quite effotrless, however she seems she wants to dig a hole for herself...there are very few roles for fat black women , Oprah and Latifiah produce theirr own , so till Jennifer opens up her own production companty she might just learn to sit her fat black ass down..........its a onetime thing, nothing to compare to ANGELA BASSET, who desrerved an oscar years back but the timing was wrong for a black woman, so a less desserving Halle Berry took it home when the Academy decided to go diverse.............OUCH...ANGELA BASSET, ALFRE WOODARD are some of the best black women out there who are desserving of an oscar not this flash in th pan performance that we should be thankful to Beyonce for,.... Jennifers jealousy of the resident Diva made her want to out perform the Booty Diva.....Did you see Beyonce was moved to tears when Jennifer won...

Beyonce sounds so much better singing, she was great compared to the others and I totally saw her star quality,however her talk is pure GHETTO..stick to singing puhleeeeeeeze.

Ciao for the day

Tom Cruise has landed    

Does it surprise anyone that Eddie Murphy was a sore loser? Not me. Most celebrities are like children. He got nominated for the one time he did a good job in a movie. He should be thankful for that! He plays the same character in all of his movies. I am glad that Arkin won. While Little Miss Sunshine was one of the most overrated movies of the year, he is a respected actor that was due for an award, and he was good in his part.

Van Halen once again you are a bunch of idiots. I am sure that they have played this game so many times that the few fans they had left are over it. Eddy Van Halen needs to get over himself. Hello, you haven't been cool since 1984!!!

Barbara Walters needs to kiss Rosie's butt. Love Rosie or not, the fact is that the ratings are higher than the show has ever had. And is not because of Elizabeth Fullacrap or Barb herself. Everyone wants to hear what Rosie has to say whether they agree or not!

Tom cruise marrries Nicole Kidman. An aspiring actress trying to break into Hollywood. She ends up with an incredible career and just shy of 10 years, he divorces her. She got what she wanted from him. He starts dating Penelope Cruz, she was an aspiring actrees trying to break into Hollywood. She ends up with a great career. How, I don't know cause she makes the worst choices and is a terrible actress. Then he meets Katie (after Scarlett Johansen refuses). She needed a huge career boost. Instead she just becomes Tom's puppy. But she is the one laughing. She would have never been able to buy $5,000 perfume and go on huge shopping sprees if it weren't for her "interview." Who cares if she was second choice?

lol,,jolie wouldn't let the pitt go, although I can see why she is jealous,,she is starting to look like skeletor. you can say what you want about cruise, he is a excellent actor. Cruise and his wife help the needy, they just don't brag about it. They also have a very beautiful daughter together. Katie loved her daughter from day 1,,didn't call her names during an interveiw.

#26, the people you list were not in a movie nominated this year. If your movie is nominated or if your cast mates or nominates, especailly if you are up for best picture, you damn well better show up to support the movie, especially if you intend to make more movies in the future, its also an opportunity to campaign for your next nomination.

Brad Pitt like Tom Cruise and Richard Gere will not take home a statue...dont knwo why but yep...I think they are considered more eye candy than actual actors, they can draw fans into the theatre but compared to other, they just dont measure up or they get beat due to a favourite being nominated.,..same with Leo D..but I think he will win a few in years to come and break some records because of his choice of projects and also the company he keeps. He is well liked by some top Brass in the Academy. I think Jack Nicholson was the lucky charm for the departed as well as a serious power broker in getting the Oscars to them!!

See Jennifer, you better learn to kiss the right assed in Hollywood, look at the list of movie industry folks that have been ignored over the years...

HA, HA. Both Eddie's are egotistical losers. I knew that Eddie Murphy wasn't going to win because his performance in Dreamgirls was his only decent movie in 10 years. I also knew that the VAN HALEN reuinion wasn't going to work out because Eddie still has issues with DLR 20 years later. Betcha Sammy Hagar and Michael Anthony are laughing their asses off about the cancelled reunion.

Eddie, you will make other movies; can't you be content with the millions you make. Most of us average people will never live in the lap of luxury you and your fellow celebs do . I, for one, am happy for Alan Arkin. He's been making movies since Eddie was born. Check out "The Russians are Coming, The Russians are coming". Alan was in that. It's hilarious. I am dating myself, but I was only 12 when that came out. Isn't that the year Eddie was born. I didn't see "Dreamgirls" yet, but I am sure Eddie gave a wonderful performance. This is off the subject, but Peter O Toole didn't win either. And he may not get another chance to be nominated for another Oscar, like you maybe could, Eddie.

It seems to me, Tom is doing what Prince Charles did, as far as marry a young gir, she becomes his own person Baby Maker. I am not saying Katie's life will turn out like Diana's... To think there are such wealth gullible people like Tom, John and Kelly Preston and even Priscilla and Lisa Marie Presley giving so much money to that cult... Maybe Katie's mom and dad need to do an intervention.I lived in a group similar to scientology many years ago, and I am thankful I am not involved with the group. I lost nearly eleven years of my life to it.

GHOST    

Eddie, did you really think you were going to win? Your nomination was done to add hype to the Oscars. The Academy decided to nominate a Black comic to add suspense to this year's award show. However, Eddie, you should know by now that comics, especially Black comics, don't win at the Oscars. Just ask Richard Pryor's ghost. Releasing Norbit before the Oscars was also a dumb move Eddie. Go back to smelling and examining men's feet.

OPEN LETTER TO EDDIE
Eddie, you won all of the other awards, be HAPPY and thankful people still enjoy watching you on the big screen! People may not come out and see you next time knowing you act like a child when things aren't going your way. Guess what....that next picture might be your "OSCAR" You knew from the start this was a long shot. You've been in that business long enough to know. Yes, it was a shocker and yes you were hurt. Nevertheless, have some class and dignity. Honestly, you need to put up a billboard in Hollywood thanking everyone and congratulating Jeniffer. COME ON NOW GET A GRIP!

I really get tired of hearing about the race issue. When Beyonce didn't win against Meryl Streep at the Golden Globes, Beyonce's father said it was racism. Ignoring the fact that Jennifer Hudson and Forest Whitaker did win.

Give me a break. Meryl Streep is BRILLIANT. Beyonce is just so-so as an actress. If it were a singing competition, I would expect Beyonce to win over Meryl Streep. You can't excuse lack of ability by calling it racism.

In da Biz!    

To Comment # 14 made by Leah C:
Eddie does indeed have another child that is older than the 5 he had with his ex-wife. This child is never talked about so it just goes to show you that no one really has all the facts. I heard that Eddie was still upset long after the Oscars and had to be consoled by friends. Can't win em' all mannnn!

But will Barba be bounced like Frenchie? Sex pictures aside, the ones she cops to are legit and on a par with those of Frenchie. If she isn't bounced, would it be because Barba looked good and Frenchie did not? It wouldn't be the first time Idol showed favoritism and badly rationalized their actions.
