When a dress fails at the Oscars, it's usually not just a mere misstep, but a major miscalculation.
Even the most fashionable celeb can fall victim to a faux pas on Hollywood's biggest night. Often, it's because they were just trying to stand out, but the Academy Awards red carpet is a tough place to pull off a big risk.

Take, for instance, Heidi Klum, who joined the all-time worst dressed list last year, when she hit the red carpet in a lilac Marchesa confection. While the hue was stunning, there was too much tulle, competing oversized flowers and, sadly, not enough sleeves.
Plenty of fans had a field day trying to turn the sartorial slip-up into Easter puns, but the frilly frock pales in comparison to some of the most memorable looks of all time -- for all the wrong reasons.

With the Oscars coming up on Sunday, Et is looking back at some of the proud mamas who have rocked baby bumps at Hollywood's biggest awards show.
Portman was pregnant with her first child, son Aleph, when she won the Best Actress award for Black Swan in 2011. This year, she could win her second Oscar while pregnant with baby No. 2.
The Scandal star glowed as she made her way down the red carpet at the 2014 Oscars, cradling the baby bump from her first child, Isabelle.
"Beware of the pregnant woman about to give birth," the actress quipped to Et from the 2008 Oscars red carpet, as she was expecting baby No. 3.
Streep was nominated for her fourth Academy Award and expecting her second »
There's a new (and super fast) way to elevate your look. Braid hoops, ribbons, golden pins, etc.—hair accessories are a simple solution to elegant styles. Stars stride the red carpet with hair fit for royalty (Think: Jessica Biel's golden, braided updo and Janelle Monae's decorated bouffants), appearing to be beyond the skills of an amateur. But, surprisingly, these styles are easy to recreate and completely relatable for the lazy girl that needs a quick and beautiful hairstyle for that upcoming event or hot date. One of Hollywood's most sought after celeb hairstylists Adir Abergel (whose clients include Reese Witherspoon, Anne Hathaway and Kristen Stewart) is helping to »
La La Land garnered a record-tying 14 Academy Award nominations this year — it’s now neck-and-neck with Titanic and All About Eve for receiving the most Oscar nominations in a given year. Among those nods is a first-ever Best Actress nom for Emma Stone, who’s been racking up rave reviews for her performance in the film.
While we’ve got musicals on the mind, let’s take a look back at some other actresses who’ve received acclaim for their musical turns.
Hathaway’s turn as Fantine was the only non-technical award the 2012 adaptation of the smash musical picked up. »

Oscar statuettes have been far from the only stunners dripping in gold.
While stars like Mila Kunis and Jennifer Lawrence put their names on the fashion map with their stunning lilac and red dresses in 2011, over the years, it's been shades of yellow that have dominated the Oscars red carpet.

While white dresses made a major mark on the red carpet last year, Alicia Vikander made sure everyone knew she was a fashion force to be reckoned with when she turned up at last year's awards show in a custom-made strapless Louis Vuitton number that made her look like a real-life princess -- Belle, specifically -- even she saw the uncanny resemblance.
"That was my thought!" she told Et on the red carpet, after being told she was inspiring comparisons already.
Not that she was upset about it... "I think if you would've asked 5-year-old Alicia what her biggest dream was »
Being nominated for an Oscar is no easy feat, and winning one is even harder (*cough* Leonardo DiCaprio *cough*). Still, there have been a select few actors who have managed to nab Oscar nominations for movies where they were on screen for less than the time it takes you to pump gas or grab a coffee. Totally casual, right? From Anne Hathaway to Anthony Hopkins, keep reading to see the members of Hollywood who were nominated or won an award for their incredibly short, but incredibly powerful, roles.

Being asked to host the Oscars isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. Last December when Jimmy Kimmel was at the airport, coming home from a relaxing family vacation in Hawaii, he took a phone call from his agent with the offer. After he hung up — “my response was not one of enthusiasm,” he confesses — he dreaded facing his wife, TV writer- producer Molly McNearney, who had lived through his hosting the Emmys just three months earlier.
“As I approached her, I felt like I was going to tell her I wrecked her car or something,” Kimmel says. “Then we got home, and I had a vicious migraine all night. It wasn’t your typical celebration.”
This Sunday, Kimmel faces off in front of millions of viewers for the most thankless job in show business. The track record of many past Oscar hosts has been jinxed, with reviews »

Actually Anne Hathaway’s character is the one somehow controlling the Kaiju, as you will see in the following trailer for sci-fi comedy Colossal. “After losing her job and boyfriend in New York, Gloria moves back to her hometown only to discover how strangely connected she is to an enormous Kaiju attacking Seoul.” Imagine you’re having the worst […]
By now, you’ve no doubt heard that the latest property in Hollywood to get the female-led treatment is Ocean’s 11. Coming to us from director Gary Ross in the form of Ocean’s Eight, the new spin on the heist story will star an enviable cast made up of Hollywood’s hottest actresses, including Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, Sarah Paulson and more. But it won’t only be the ladies who appear on screen.
We’ve head that Matt Damon, who starred in the Ocean’s 11 remake and its two sequels, will show up in some capacity as well. However, if you’re expecting him to have a substantial role in the film, you might be disappointed. That’s because the actor has revealed that it’s really just more of a quick cameo. While speaking to Collider about his new film The Great Wall, which is a bit of a disappointment, »

"Legion M’s mission is to unite passionate fans together to bring refreshing new ideas to the screen” said Paul Scanlan, co-founder of Legion M. "We are thrilled to be partnering with Neon, a company who embodies this same refrain, to introduce this wildly imaginative film as a first »

The untitled comedy centers around Vince — played by Holm — a charismatic gym owner with no ambition who lives with his younger brother Michael, a gorgeous idiot. Their simple life of women and working out is put on hold when the teenage son of Vince is dropped off on their doorstep by Priya (Kaling), one of his high school flings.
Kaling and Grandy co-created the pilot and will serve as writers and executive producers together. Howard Klein is also an exec producer. Universal Television is the studio, along with 3 Arts Entertainment and Kaling’s production company, which is set up at Universal TV under a multi-year deal, which Kaling inked this past summer for acting, writing, and producing.

As far as movie premises go, having a story about a past-her-prime party girl with an inexplicable psychic connection to a giant kaiju terrorizing South Korea is pretty out there. Still, after seeing the first two trailers for Colossal (which features the movie premise in question), we're kind of into it. Anne Hathaway stars as Gloria, a woman spiraling through a mental breakdown who discovers that all of her movements (especially dancing) are mirrored by the massive, Godzilla-like creature stomping its way through Seoul. There's not much else to go off of, but we presume costars Jason Sudeikis, Tim Blake Nelson, and Dan Stevens will be able to help Gloria figure it all out.

"Not to be missed!" Neon has unveiled a new official Us trailer for the wacky sci-fi thriller from eccentric Spanish filmmaker Nacho Vigalondo, of the cult hit Timecrimes previously. It's a film titled Colossal, a metaphorical action thriller starring Anne Hathaway as a young woman struggling with a few big personal problems. The concept is odd in that she basically becomes a giant monster that terrorizes Seoul, South Korea. You just need to see the trailer to get an idea of how it works, or you just need to go see the film and have a blast. The cast includes Dan Stevens, Jason Sudeikis, Tim Blake Nelson, Austin Stowell, Rukiya Bernard & Agam Darshi. This looks like it's totally awesome, I really can't wait to see it. Enjoy. Here's the official Us trailer (+ poster) for Nacho Vigalondo's Colossal, direct from YouTube: Gloria (Hathaway) is a hard partying New York scene »

Anne Hathaway’s Gloria (inadvertently) levels entire cities in a new full-length trailer for Nacho Vigalondo’s comedy monster movie, Colossal. Take a look at the hilarious trailer below, along with the official poster…

Colossal made the rounds both late last year and earlier this year at a number of festivals, including Fantastic Fest and Sundance, where it scored mostly positive reviews from critics. Reactions made it clear that Hathaway’s layered performance and the bizarre central premise were clear highlights and made up for the film’s more frustrating aspects. General audiences will be able to judge for themselves when the film comes to theaters on April 7th.

“You don’t remember anything last night, huh?” Face it — no good conversation ever started with those words. And the more Anne Hathaway’s Gloria learns, the less she wants to know. But that’s the least of her problems in this first trailer for Colossal, a comedy that bowed at Toronto last year before heading to Sundance and next month to SXSW. Things aren’t going great for Gloria. The unemployed party girl has been given das boot from her boyfriend’s NYC apartment — “You… »

The film takes viewers on a trip through three different countries and continents: Argentina’s capital city of Buenos Aires, Mozambique and the Philippines. The story focuses on the three main characters’ relationship with technology and how it has caused a lack of interaction with the real world around them. Cast members include Sergio Morosini, Chai Fonacier, Domingos Marengula, Rixel Manimtim, Manuel Asucan, Irene Doliente Paña, and Shine Marx. The film contains Spanish, Portuguese and Filipino dialogue. »

Following its buzzworthy run on last year’s festival circuit (more on that later), Vigalondo’s latest creative venture is barreling down on its theatrical release, and the promo above simultaneously offers up our best look at Colossal to date, all the while keeping the film’s big reveals in the shadows. Also starring Jason Sudeikis as Oscar, Colossal looks set to be Hathaway’s vehicle through and through, who headlines the picture as the damaged Gloria.
Teetering on the brink of a personal crisis after losing both her job and her long-time boyfriend, Hathaway’s lead succumbs to her old habits, and spends the day drinking like a fish until she slowly begins to realize that the sky-scraping kaiju currently terrorizing Seoul, South Korea, somehow holds a deep, seemingly telepathic connection to her. »

I seriously can't wait to see Colossal, starring Anne Hathaway and Jason Sudeikis. I know a "mumblecore-kaiju" film sounds weird, but I think it's a good weird, like being tickled with a GI Joe during sex. What I'm saying is, don't knock it 'till you try it. And this film, especially with the glowing reviews, looks like it's at least worth a... Read More »
