Emma Stone had a huge night at the Oscars on Sunday, taking home her first Academy Award for best actress and sharing a handful of adorable moments with her friend and La La Land costar Ryan Gosling. In addition to thanking Ryan during her acceptance speech and meeting up with him backstage, Emma also had a cute encounter with Leonardo DiCaprio, who presented her with her Oscar on stage.

How Accounting Firm PwC May Have Caused the Oscars Best Picture Blunder

15 hours ago | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

After meticulous counting, calculations and planning, the unthinkable happened: La La Land was mistakenly named as the 2017 Academy Awards’ Best Picture winner, only for frantic producers to run out on stage and crown Moonlight.

For a few short moments, only two people knew that the wrong victor was announced: Brian Cullinan and Martha Ruiz, the two representatives from accounting firm PricewaterhouseCoopers tasked with figuring out the Oscar winners and bringing the sealed envelopes containing the well-guarded secrets to the awards show. For the past 83 years, PwC has been responsible for counting the votes from members of Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, »

Stars: Dane DeHaan, Jason Isaacs, Mia Goth, Celia Imrie, Ivo Nandi, Adrian Schiller, Harry Groener | Written by Justin Haythe |  Directed by Gore Verbinski

Lockhart (Dane DeHaan) is a cocky young executive working for a New York financial services firm. The board summons him and explains that there are unsavoury business shenanigans afoot. The source is an ex-board member, Pembroke (Harry Groener), who recently went Awol at a “wellness” retreat in the Swiss Alps. Lockhart is tasked with going there and bringing Pembroke home, so the board can pin the illegal activity on him.

But when Lockhart reaches the retreat, he struggles to find answers – or, indeed, Pembroke. He tries to depart, but a car accident leaves him with a broken leg. He’s stuck in the old castle, with its secret history, its “vitamin”-quaffing patients, and its menacing overlord, Dr. Volmer (Jason Isaacs). Lockhart meets Hannah (Mia Goth), a »

Peter Travers on Bill Paxton: A Modest Actor of Immodest Gifts

17 hours ago | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

I met Bill Paxton in 1995. On a visit to the Rolling Stone offices in midtown Manhattan, he looked in awe at our cover wall, featuring iconic images of rock royalty. An intern, passing by, stopped to stare at him. "Your face looks familiar," she said.

"I've been in a couple of movies," Paxton said, good-naturedly.

The intern wasn't buying it. "Which ones?"

"Apollo 13 ... it just came out, I'm an astronaut in that one."

"Which astronaut?" the youngster prodded, skeptical to the last.

The Leonardo DiCaprio Cycle of Life: Film, Beach, Beard, Travel the World, Shave, Haircut, Award Season, Repeat

23 hours ago | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

It's a fairly universally recognized fact that Leonardo DiCaprio is having a better time than you. Wherever he is, and in whatever state, he's winning at the life he's been lucky enough to leave. Even eating that bison liver and burrowing in a horse carcass probably wasn't too terrible, the actor warmed by the prospect of long-awaited Oscar glory at the end of his arduous journey. DiCaprio, who at 42 is a nearly 30-year veteran of showbiz, was nominated for four acting Oscars before finally winning for The Revenant, as well as 11 Golden Globes, giving us many opportunities to catch on to the particular pattern that the movie star has adopted.

PricewaterhouseCoopers Takes Fall for Oscar Gaffe

27 February 2017 1:05 AM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

We all know the Academy accountants, so precise, so reliable: PricewaterhouseCoopers.

Well, not this year. Somehow, their carefully guarded dual sets of envelopes backfired as Warren Beatty on one side of the stage and Leonardo DiCaprio on the other both wound up with Emma StoneLa La Land” cards in their red envelopes.

What unfolded after a smooth, engaged and entertaining Oscar show hosted by Jimmy Kimmel was the biggest gaffe in Oscar history. Warren Beatty frowned over the card he pulled out of the envelope, and passed it to his old “Bonnie and Clyde” star Faye Dunaway, who read the name she saw: “La La Land.”

It took over two minutes for the PricewaterhouseCoopers people to figure out that the wrong winner had been announced (the card had read Emma Stone, “La La Land”) and find the right Best Picture envelope with “Moonlight” on it.

Oscars Accountants Pose with Two Briefcases with Top-Secret Results — Just Hours Before Best Picture Fiasco

27 February 2017 12:20 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Stepping on the red carpet at the Dolby Theater in Los Angeles on Sunday, PricewaterhouseCoopers accounts Martha Ruiz and Brian Cullinan were armed with suitcases containing the top-secret Oscar results.

They followed in the footsteps of former colleagues: Every year at the Academy Awards, two accountants from PwC pose for photos before the ceremony.

But this year —for the first time in the Academy’s 89-year history — the great lengths the firm goes to ensure the night goes smoothly were overshadowed by La La Land‘s naming as Best Picture winner, only for frantic producers to run out on stage and crown Moonlight. »

At the Oscars, Leonardo DiCaprio Was Like That Senior Coming Back to Campus After Graduation

26 February 2017 10:20 PM, PST | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Leonardo DiCaprio won the coveted best actor award at the Oscars in 2016, and the actor was clearly feeling himself when he returned to the scene of the crime a year later. First of all, he was late; Leo skipped the red carpet and was Mia during most of the show, popping up just in time to present the best actress award to Emma Stone. He was basically that senior who comes back to campus after graduation - confident and unbothered, with a little bit of extra swagger. We'll likely get a glimpse of him posted up at the afterparty, vaping in the corner like a boss. Related:Leonardo DiCaprio Is Just a Regular Guy, and Here Is Solid Proof »

Emma Stone has shared some key information about the Oscars’ shocking Best Picture mistake.

The actress revealed the moment she knew something was amiss during the jaw-dropping moment in which Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway erroneously deemed La La Land the winner of Best Picture instead of Moonlight.

Just How Many Black Actors Have Won an Oscar? The Number Is Disturbingly Low

26 February 2017 10:15 PM, PST | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Image Source: Getty / Lee Celano The Oscars have been plagued by obvious race issues since they began in 1929, and things seemingly came to a head with the #OscarsSoWhite discussion a couple of years ago; the overwhelming lack of diversity in nominees in both 2015 and 2016 resulted in Academy president Cheryl Boone Isaacs taking bigger, more noticeable steps to double the number of diverse members in its voting body by 2020. Nevertheless, a black actor (the incomparable Sidney Poitier) wasn't awarded until 1964, and it was only in 2002 that Halle Berry became the first black woman to win a best actress trophy. At this year's ceremony, Mahershala Ali and Viola Davis won for their supporting roles, adding to a pretty short list. So, just how many black actors have won Oscars over the years? Sixteen. A whopping sixteen distinguished, talented people in 89 years. Scroll through to see who they are and learn about the records they've broken. »
