Oscar Nominations

Poop Just Got Nominated for an Oscar!

... Wait, WHO?

1/15/2015 6:21 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
breaking news
011515_cheryl_boone_isaacs_launchCheryl Boone Isaacs is the president of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences ... so you would think she'd know there is no cinematographer by the name of Dick Poop, but you'd be wrong. 

Isaacs had an embarrassing gaffe during Thursday morning's announcement of this year's Oscar nominees. She was reading off the names of the nominees for Best Cinematography when she mistakenly referred to Dick Pope as ... well, you know.   

Poor Dick Pope ... this must be like high school all over again for him.

Bill Cosby Accuser

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler

Know The Truth

EXCLUSIVE
Bill Cosby Jokes
One of Bill Cosby's famous accusers was cheering when Tina Fey and Amy Poehler skewered the comedian during the Golden Globes.

Law & Order actress Michelle Hurd thinks it's ironic ... 2 female comedians who were cracking jokes about Cosby's alleged antics could be more powerful in swaying the public than the accusers themselves.

Hurd tells us ... Fey and Poehler give the allegations credibility given the profile of the Globes.

She thinks Cosby has been impervious to the criticism and hostility aimed at him, but she's hoping the cumulative impact of hecklers at his concerts, women speaking out and now 2 famous women taking an international stage and blasting Cosby will finally get to him.

Hurd came forward back in November, alleging Cosby groped her in a dressing room while they worked on "The Cosby Show" together.

Jennifer Aniston Leaving Golden Globes
Jennifer Aniston is awesome ... dropping the F-bomb during the endless limo line following the Golden Globes Sunday night.

Aniston got a little impatient waiting for her SUV outside the Beverly Hilton with fiancé Justin Theroux ... joking she'd ditch her own ride if a friend got them the hell outta there.

She's pretty famous for being down to earth and just plain fun ... and she was true to form.

One thing ... it's pretty clear who's calling the shots. Watch.

011215_monica_lewinsky_launch_v3Monica Lewinsky hobnobbed with Hollywood elite after the Golden Globes continuing a reemergence ... which some call NOT coincidentally timed to match Hillary Clinton running for prez. 

We got Monica leaving a Globes after party at the Chateau Marmont ... and posed the question she will most likely have to deal with next year -- will she cast a vote for Hillary?

Also interesting ... who she partied with at the event. Monica was photographed hanging with her longtime Hollywood BFF, Alan Cumming

Gotta say, he looks good on her.

Cosby Jokes Kill at Golden Globes

1/11/2015 5:50 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
011115_gg_open_cosby_launch_v2Tina Fey and Amy Poehler did what they said they would do ... take shots at Bill Cosby during their opening monologue at the Golden Globe Awards -- and they went in HARD!

Tina and Amy turned their opening into a full roast of Cosby's rape allegations -- each doing impressions of the Cos talking about slipping pills to unsuspecting women.

Perhaps surprisingly, the Hollywood crowd ate it up. There were a few shocked faces, but only a few.

Of course, Cosby has never been convicted and vehemently denies the allegations ... so we're guessing he wasn't laughing.

The Game and YG

The Grammys Hate Gangster Rappers

12/17/2014 12:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE
YG The Game Grammy Nominations
The Game and YG think the Grammys are rigged ... because gangster rappers are getting screwed over.

Game tells TMZ ... people at the Grammys "don't respect our culture or our music. Unless we cross over, we ain't winning s**t."

YG is incredulous ... his album, "My Krazy Life," debuted at #1 on Billboard yet he didn't get a single nomination. He told Big Boy Tuesday his music was way better than most, but he wouldn't be specific.

The irony ... both YG and Game think the Grammys shut out any rapper who is not mainstream, which is ironic given that YG sold more albums than just about anyone in the rap category in 2014.

Game's parting shot ... "We can’t even get police convicted of coldblooded murder, so we definitely ain't winning no f**king Grammy."

Best Lawsuit of the Year

Sell an Oscar

Go Directly to Court

1216-robert-surtees-mptvimages
And the Oscar goes to ... some dude on eBay, and now the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences is going after the relative of an actual winner.

A guy named Robert Surtees won an Oscar in 1953 for cinematography for the "The Bad and the Beautiful." Robert is now dead, and his daughter-in-law, Carol, apparently needs some cash, because she put the statue up on eBay and there was indeed a market ... she sold it for $40,500.

Here's the problem ... there are strings attached to winning an Oscar, one of them being that if the winner wants to sell it the Academy can step in and buy it for the very reasonable price of $10.

So the Academy is pissed, and they've filed a lawsuit, not only asking for the sale price but they want a judge to give them the statue ... of course, after the Academy ponies up the $10.

Lorde

Porn Awards Want to See

What Dat Mouth Do

12/9/2014 12:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE
Lorde AVN Awards
Lorde's innocent flirting with porn star, James Deen, could land her deep in the sex-on-cam biz -- the porn industry wants her for a gig at their award show.

Porn sources tell TMZ ... Adult Video News (AVN) sent an enticing email to the singer inviting her to open wide ... and sing for the AVNs (the porn Oscars) in Vegas next month. 

Back in November, Deen and Lorde safely exchanged mutual love -- on Twitter -- which AVN believes is a strong enough connection for her to perform at the show.

No word on whether she'll accept the invite, but AVN is convinced her “passion for a good story” makes her a perfect fit.

Barely legal bonus: Lorde just turned 18.

Jennifer Lopez

Enjoy the View

11/24/2014 2:43 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Jennifer Lopez AssJennifer Lopez showed off her gymnast-level flexibility as she performed on stage at Sunday night's American Music Awards ... sending a message to other pop stars -- bow down to this booty. 

The 45 year-old singer performed Sunday with Iggy Azalea ... and even though Beyonce and Nicki Minaj have reached for the ass queen throne -- this ankle-grabbing move solidifies J.Lo's position.

She's still Jenny from the block ... from all angles.

Iggy & J.Lo

Scare the Crap out of ABC's AMAs

With Their Booty

EXCLUSIVE
111914_jlo_iggy_ass2assIggy Azalea and Jennifer Lopez have created excruciating stress on several ABC staffers -- the censors who will have their hot little fingers on the button during Sunday's American Music Awards.

Our spies tell us ... Iggy and J.Lo will perform "Booty" ... and network honchos are nervous ... real nervous. The execs have set the ground rules ... no cracks, no rubbing. There will be a 3-4 second delay, but these shows have a rich history of raunchy performances slipping through ... the cracks.

It's interesting ... we're told ABC has not put the kibosh on spanking ... something fairly prominent in the music video. But that's as sexual as execs will allow.

The question ... will Iggy and/or J.Lo cross the line?

Pray God.

Johnny Depp

BOMBED at Awards Show

In More Ways Than One

11/15/2014 12:35 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
111514_johnny_depp_hollywood_awards_launchJohnny Depp was either really drunk Friday night at the Hollywood Film Awards, or ... who are we kidding, he was really drunk. 

Depp was presenting the best documentary award to “Supermensch: The Legend of Shep Gordon” ... but it took about 3 seconds to realize the actor had partaken at the table.

CBS eventually cut to a commercial after Depp rambled on, dropping a few cuss words ... and guess who was still there when they came back from break, ready to hand off the award?

Mike Myers, one of the film's directors, told Variety the whole thing was very rock and roll.

Yeah, in a Joplin-y sort of way.

Paris Hilton

Take That Deadmau5

... I Won a DJ Award

11/13/2014 8:07 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
1113-paris-hilton-dj-awards-SplashDeadmau5 may have won the battle, but it looks like Paris Hilton won the war -- because the heiress scored an award in Monte Carlo for spinning ... and it was presented by a legendary DJ.

Paris won "Women's Newcomer of the Year" Wednesday at the NRJ DJ Awards ... and Bob Sinclar handed her the honorary statue.

It may not be the Grammy's ... but with winners like Avicii, David Guetta and Steve Aoki -- it's pretty impressive. Especially since it was voted on by the fans.

Deadmau5 was not impressed ... he just tweeted, "Congrats on the NRJ award.  What the f*** is an nrj award?"

Carrie Underwood

Suck It, Mr. President!!!

11/6/2014 6:17 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
110614_cma_monologue_launch_v3Carrie Underwood may not be your classic country s**t-kicker, but she's definitely a s**t-stirrer ... because she got the CMA crowd all riled up Wednesday night by taking a shot at the Prez.

Carrie and Brad Paisley got all political with a reference to Taylor Swift, whom they suggested has abandoned country music.

There's a tiny bit of room for interpretation ... whether the audience is going wild over the fact that the Democrats lost the Senate, or whether Obama is so unpopular he derailed his own party.

It's the second time in 2 years Obama's been skewered at the Country Music Awards.

Oh, and Brad took a shot at TMZ, too. We'll take that as a challenge.
