The Making of a SAG Award Get 'Em While They're Hot!!!

1/21/2018 12:50 AM PST

Next time you see a celebrity in a fancy suit or dress holding a SAG Award, think of this ... it took at least 3 guys in hazmat suits to make it!

We got pics of the entire casting process that goes into making the award and let's just say, it AIN'T as easy as 1-2-3 because it involves a lot of dangerously hot molten bronze ... hence the suits.

It's incredible and the process is art itself. The trophy -- a naked man holding both a comedy and tragedy mask -- gets fired up several times and dusted with layers of chemicals to get its green color.

If you thought the engraving of Leo's Oscar was cool, this takes things to a whole new level ...

Gloria Allred SAGs, Oscars Shouldn't Go To Alleged Sexual Predators

1/21/2018 12:30 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Voting members for award shows should factor in sexual harassment accusations in determining whether an actor wins an Oscar, SAG Award, Golden Globe, etc. ... according to attorney Gloria Allred.

There's a fierce argument about bestowing actors accused of sexual misdeeds with an award, even if they're the best in their category. Allred thinks it's not just about acting.

James Franco is up for a SAG this weekend for his role in "The Disaster Artist" after several women came forward and accused him of sexual misconduct. He skipped out on the Critics' Choice Awards after winning a Golden Globe, but he's planning on being at Sunday's SAGs.

Allred doesn't name names, but it's not hard to guess the elephants in the room.

Greta Gerwig It's 'Lady Bird' Mania At Her Old High School!!!

1/20/2018 12:25 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Greta Gerwig's critically-acclaimed "Lady Bird" -- which she wrote and directed -- figures to be an Oscar darling, but it's already a huge winner at her alma mater.

Greta's former high school, St. Francis Catholic High School in Sacramento, CA -- where the movie is based -- is totally stoked about Gerwig's success and not afraid to show it.

Sources close to the situation tell us Greta's parents heard the school was buzzing about "Lady Bird," so they delivered movie posters to the school and pins for the students to wear.

We're told if Greta or her movie get nominated for the Academy Awards -- which is more than likely -- the school plans to have an Oscars watch party for the big night and cheer her on.

The Oscars air Sunday, March 4.

'OITNB' Star Lea DeLaria F*** Casey Affleck I Care About the Women He Harassed ... Allegedly

1/17/2018 12:50 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Casey Affleck should be banned from presenting the Best Actress Oscar this year because he's been accused of sexual harassment ... so says "Orange Is the New Black" star Lea DeLaria.

We got Lea at LAX Tuesday and asked her if Casey -- who last year won an Oscar for Best Actor in "Manchester by the Sea" -- should be allowed to present this year, given his sexual misconduct history and the #MeToo movement in full effect.

Casey, of course, was sued by 2 women in 2010 for sexual harassment and the cases were settled out of court for an undisclosed amount. And with that in mind ... Lea says Casey shouldn't be presenting Oscars this year.

Btw, in the clip, she uses the word "rape," but Casey's never been accused of that.

Halle Berry Reporting for Duty At NAACP Image Awards

1/16/2018 6:37 AM PST

Halle Berry wasn't getting her panties in a bunch over her wardrobe at the NAACP Image Awards this week ... which is easy when you're not wearing any.

Halle glowed on the red carpet Monday in Pasadena in a sheer dress that showed off what appeared to be the actress going commando. That's our angle, anyway.

Can't say we're complaining either -- she looks absolutely stunning at 51 ... with or without her undies. 

Coming for you 2018

A post shared by Halle Berry (@halleberry) on

Halle's been taking a less-is-more approach to 2018 so far. Keep it up, girl!

NAACP Image Awards Celebs Stunt At the After-Party

1/16/2018 7:11 AM PST

The NAACP Image Awards brought out a ton of stars for the main show ... and just as many to the after-party.

Celebs like Anthony Anderson, Danny Glover, Issa Rae, Keegan-Michael Key, Jordan PeeleCaleb McLaughlin, Chadwick Boseman, Deon Cole and lots more showed up and showed out after the show ... all of whom were dressed to the nines.

As we reported ... Anthony roasted Tyrese during the opening monologue, making fun of his breakdown. And, of course, Halle Berry went commando earlier in the night, too.

Definitely a night of images to remember. 

Anthony Anderson Mocks Tyrese At NAACP Image Awards

1/16/2018 6:39 AM PST

Anthony Anderson was hilarious at the NAACP Image Awards Monday night, taking unmerciful jabs at Tyrese for his crying fits during his recent custody battle.

Anderson started out solemn ... making it seem like he had sympathy for Tyrese, and then he shifted gears and unleashed some wicked jokes.

The "Black-ish" star, who MC'd the event, honed in on Tyrese's bogus claim Will and Jada Smith gave him millions of dollars to keep him afloat. Anderson says Tyrese didn't need the cash 'cause he's loaded. 

James Franco Accuser 'I Still Have Love for Him' But He Must Apologize!!!

1/12/2018 1:30 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

One of James Franco's accusers is willing to forgive him if he publicly owns up to the sexual misconduct she says she experienced on a movie set.

Sarah Tither-Kaplan tells TMZ, "I don't hate James. I still have love for him." She's reacting to Franco's Critics' Choice Awards victory Thursday night ... a ceremony he skipped because, as we first reported ... he's despondent over multiple allegations against him.

Sarah says she doesn't begrudge Franco's success, and, in fact, says she would've been shocked if he didn't win -- but adds he still needs to accept responsibility and apologize. In fact, she believes he'll be totally forgiven if he does. 

You'll recall, she accused Franco of exploiting her for nude scenes in a movie, and also of removing genital guards off other actresses -- not her -- during an orgy scene in the film.

Sarah does think Franco's benefiting from "the privilege of being young, white and pretty" -- meaning the public believes him more than say, Harvey Weinstein, because James is good looking.

James Franco No-Show at Critics' Choice Upset, Frustrated

1/12/2018 6:34 AM PST
Exclusive Details

James Franco was nowhere to be seen Thursday night at the Critics' Choice awards because he was extremely upset over sexual misconduct allegations against him ... sources connected to Franco tell TMZ.

Franco won Best Actor in a Comedy Film but was not in the hangar at the Santa Monica Airport to claim the trophy.

Our sources say the actor is in a bad place ... upset and frustrated over allegations he says are untrue.  Franco endured several grillings on talk shows in the last few days, saying he'd rather take a bullet than cast aspersions on the #MeToo movement.

One source said on a scale of 1 to 10, 10 being inconsolable, Franco's a 6.

He flew to L.A. Thursday to attend the awards, but obviously had a change of heart. 

'GotG 2' Star Sean Gunn Superhero Films Don't Need Awards ... They Win At Box Office

1/9/2018 9:19 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

The best movies are often never nominated for awards ... according to Sean Gunn, who plays Kraglin in the 'Guardians of the Galaxy' films.

We got Gunn on Rodeo drive Monday after Globes and asked him about awards shows always dissing superhero films like "GotG 2," which his brother, James, wrote and directed. 

'GotG 2', "Wonder Woman" and "Spider-man: Homecoming" were some of the top grossing films in 2017 but didn't get Best Picture nods, something the Internet has been sounding off on lately.

Doesn't seem Sean thinks there's a correlation between good films and awards. In fact, he shoots down awards shows altogether.

1/9/2018 12:30 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Wiz KhalifaT.I. and Josh Smith have some shiny new hardware after an award ceremony where the nominees have way more impact on the public than your average Golden Globe winner.

The rappers and former NBA star attended the Developing Options Awards Banquet ... a Southern California event rolled out by its foundation's CEO, Eugene "Big U" Henley.

Wiz took home the "Epic Man of the Year Award" for his multiple donations -- totaling up to $100k -- to drive the foundation. T.I. scored the "University Iron Man" award for donating to Crenshaw High School's new football field.

Smith got the "Baller-Shot Caller" award for hooking up Snoop Dogg's youth football league and Crenshaw High's football team with new uniforms.

Nipsey Hussle ("Business Cluster Leadership") spearheaded educational classes and, along with rapper Trinidad James ("First Class"), spent thousands of dollars on clothes and shoes to outfit more than 400 inner city kids.

Congrats!!!  

Frances McDormand Speech Bleeps a Mistake Globes Didn't Wanna Piss Off FCC!

1/8/2018 5:03 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Frances McDormand's Golden Globes speech was mistakenly bleeped because staff working the show thought for sure she was about to curse ... TMZ has learned. 

Sources close to the Globes tell TMZ ... McDormand was bleeped three times during the live broadcast because the production team was on "high-alert" and anticipating swear words that would violate FCC rules. We're told the show errs on the conservative side when it comes to bleeping live award shows because of the family audience. 

So, what did you miss? The show ended up censoring words like "Fox Searchlight" and "tectonic shift" ... however you clearly heard Frances say "shite" on the live East coast feed.

When the show was rebroadcast for the West coast, "shite" was bleeped and the 3 other censors were removed.

Drake & Zoe Kravitz Get Cozy & Jam Out At Golden Globes Party

1/8/2018 1:44 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Drake and Zoë Kravitz partied like it's 2013, getting all handsy and rekindling an old flame ... or so it seems.

OVO and Zoë were together at Netflix's Golden Globes party Sunday night, and it wasn't hard to tell they have some history. They had their arms around each other at one point. When they weren't chatting ... Drake was doing his thing behind the turntables as Zoë danced along to Wizkid's "Show You The Money."

Drake and Zoë were rumored to be an item back in 2013 and you'll recall she posted this pic in 2014 wishing him happy birthday. Zoë told Andy Cohen last year she used to hang out with Drake, and we all know what that means. 

We're told they remain longtime friends, but where there's smoke ...
