Jennifer Lawrence is the best friend everyone wants (and pretends) to have, so can you imagine what it would be like tagging along as her date to the Oscars?
Now you don't have to imagine, because her date to the 86th Academy Awards was her actual, real-life Bff Laura Simpson, and she wrote a hilarious tell-all essay about her star-studded, surreal night at the ceremony and after-parties. Originally published on MySpace, Simpson's essay spans the entire day of prep, all the way to when she arrived home at 3:30 a.m.
Lawrence and Simpson met exactly how you'd expect them to: bonding over pizza. "How did I get invited to the 86th Academy Awards, you ask? Well, my best friend took me as her date," Simpson writes. "I met her seven years ago at an event where we both didn't know a single person. We hit it off over a mutual respect for Chandler Bing, »

We all saw that Jennifer Lawrence brought her boyfriend, Nicholas Hoult, to the Oscars on Sunday, but he wasn't her only date. Jennifer's best friend, Laura Simpson, was along for the big night as well, and she shared an honest - and hilarious - account of what it was like to attend Hollywood's biggest event as a non-celebrity. We learned a few things while reading the article: You Don't See the Real Red Carpet on TV Highland (between Sunset and Hollywood) is filled with barricades with different entry points so no crazy person can plow their car through, killing everyone on the red carpet. Guarding each entry point through the barricades are men in head-to-toe camouflage with gigantic automatic weapons (rifles? I don't know guns). I try to take a photo of one, and I'm stopped immediately. Completely lining the sidewalks of Highland are the Jesus freaks. I am not »

Madonna's annual post-Oscars party was the place to be after Sunday night's show. The bash, held at her pal Guy Oseary's Los Angeles home, went on until 4 a.m. Celebrities were "wall to wall," a guest tells People. "Everyone was dancing, mingling and eating." Academy Award winners past and present let loose and dined on dishes such as Caesar salad, penne pasta with red sauce, rice and chicken in a curry sauce and potato knishes, served buffet style. Best Actor winner Matthew McConaughey and his wife Camila were inseparable. Julia Roberts and husband Danny Moder "were lovey dovey together, »

The Academy shared a pic on the photo-sharing site of Robert De Niro with the Hispanic actress, and captioned it "Hayek and De Niro prepping backstage", the Daily Express reported.
Hayek, who was nominated in 2006 for her eponymous role in the Frida Kahlo biopic, was absent at the 2014's award ceremony. (Ani) »

Oscar 2014 TV ratings: 10-year high in overall viewership in U.S. (image: Twitter hit ‘Ellen selfie Oscars,’ featuring Ellen DeGeneres, Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence, Meryl Streep, Brad Pitt, Julia Roberts, and Oscar 2014 company) Hosted by Ellen DeGeneres, whose "Oscars selfie" became a record-breaking Twitter hit, and featuring the likes of Angelina Jolie, Will Smith, and John Travolta as presenters — in addition to a pizza delivery man as part of an extended DeGeneres joke — the 2014 Oscar ceremony hit a 10-year high in overall viewership. In the coveted 18-49 age bracket, this year’s Oscar show drew a 12.9 rating vs. 13.0 last year; overall, in the United States an estimated 43 million people watched at least some segments of the Oscar telecast held on Sunday, March 2, 2014 — up 6% compared to last year’s show hosted by Seth MacFarlane, and featuring Ben Affleck’s Argo, Jennifer Lawrence, Daniel Day-Lewis, Christoph Waltz, and Anne Hathaway among the winners. »

We wonder what Samuel L. Jackson has to say about this… Penélope Cruz was mistaken for Salma Hayek during a backstage Oscars Instagram pic from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences. Cruz presented with Robert De Niro but the Academy wrote, "Hayek and De Niro prepping backstage" under the snapshot. Epic fail! Users immediately began commenting, slamming the account for wrongfully identifying the brunette actress for her famous gal pal, shortly after the picture was posted. And it didn't take long for the Academy to notice…the picture was subsequently taken down mere moments after it was originally published. Hayek did not attend the 86th Annual »
John Travolta’s butchering of Idina Menzel’s name (Adele Dazeem) wasn’t the only flub of the 86th Academy Awards, though it seems that the Internet will never forget Travolta’s faux pas, as it has spurred a new Twitter profile, @AdeleDazeem.
But he wasn’t the only person to make such a mistake on Hollywood’s big night.

Even the Academy found itself in a flub. They posted a photo on their official Instagram account in which they mistook Penelope Cruz for Salma Hayek. The embarrassing mess-up has since been taken down, but not before screenshots hit the web.
The public caught the media in several mistakes too. The Guardian originally reported that Bradley Manning took Ellen DeGeneres’ now-infamous selfie, but a March 3 amendment to the article corrected the error — Oscar nominee Bradley Cooper actually took the picture, »

Many of the races at Sunday (March 2) night's Academy Awards seem pre-determined as the ceremony is about to begin. Those guys from "My So-Called Life" and "True Detective" seem like locks. Etc. However, Best Picture is wide open. So let's hope that adds drama, while Ellen DeGeneres adds comedy. Click through and join my 2014 Oscars Live-Blogging. And comment below! 8:25 p.m. Et. So how many times do we figure Jennifer Lawrence is going fall down on tonight's Oscars telecast. Five? 10? Twice that many if she wins? Actually, if she wins, Lupita Nyong'o fans are going to be tripping her. Not Lupita, though. She's too classy for that. 8:27 p.m. There are dozens of people in the HitFix office right now, but I'm hiding out in my office, because I'm dedicated to you, the readers. Because I'd just keep eating lasagna if I were with the main group. Also, »

Penélope Cruz gave birth to her second child just seven months ago, and on Sunday night, she stepped out on the Oscars red carpet looking more glamorous than ever. She isn't nominated for an award, but she'll be taking the stage to present an award. Penélope was a little more covered up than during her recent beach getaway, wearing a pink gown. What do you think of her look? Make sure to place your votes in our Oscars red carpet fashion and beauty polls! View Slideshow › »

'Some beauty looks get an Academy nod every year, like dark, arched Hollywood brows'
Since my love of film matches my passion for beauty, the Oscars are not to be missed. I binge on sweets and caffeine and stay up to watch the whole interminable shebang, trying to guess simultaneously which nominee will triumph and which nail polish they're wearing.
Some beauty looks get an Academy nod every year, like dark, arched Hollywood brows. Sleek's new Brow Stylist (£5.99), is the ideal tool. There's a wand to groom brows into place, and a strong but natural-looking slanted crayon at the other end. I'm hooked.
Makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury, who's rumoured to be in La to make up Penelope Cruz and Naomi Watts, is bound to use her Film Star Bronze & Glow powder duo (£49, but huge), which I'm using here. The idea is to brush the matte brown into the hollows of »

• Sali Hughes's Bafta night makeover: hair, makeup and £2m+ of diamonds
"I'm known for making women look beautiful – that's my Usp," Charlotte Tilbury declares when we meet in her north-west London studio. All around her, chic young women dash about, toting bags of cosmetics and giant photos of female celebrities whom Tilbury, a celebrity makeup artist, has helped to look beautiful, including Kristen Stewart, Penélope Cruz, Naomi Watts and – who else, Charlotte?
"Oh everybody, everybody. I'm a lot of people's favourite go-to. Jennifer Lawrence, Jennifer Lopez, Anne Hathaway, lovely – oh, what's her name? – Rachel Weiss, Gwyneth Paltrow, um, Rebecca, Rebecca, what's her name? Victoria Beckham! Oh, and Et, you know …"
Er, Elizabeth Taylor?
"No, no, no! Et!"

The 86th annual Academy Awards take place this weekend (March 2), with Ellen DeGeneres hosting the star-studded ceremony at the Kodak Theatre.
So as we anticipate all the glitz and glamorous gowns to grace the red carpet, we take a look at 20 of the best Oscar dresses over the decades below:
Angelina Jolie smouldered in a plunging ivory halter-neck gown complete with train by Marc Bouwer in 2004. And the actress looked demure in black Elie Saab gown teamed with a pair of emerald green statement earrings at the Oscars in 2009.
Marion Cotillard looked stunning in a silver-scallop-detail, ivory Jean Paul Gaultier gown as she accepted the Best Actress Oscar for her role in La Vie en Rose in 2008. And Jessica Chastain shimmers in a silver embroidered strapless Armani Privé gown in »
In Sergio Castellitto's drama "Twice Born," Penelope Cruz adds the Italian language to a resume full of English and Spanish speaking roles. The film, which had it' theatrical release earlier last year, arrived on DVD yesterday. In this five minute clip, we're introduced to Gemma, a nervous and aged woman who flies to Sarajevo with her son--marking the first time they've been back since escaping the Bosnian War 16 years earlier. It's a tense arrival, one that foreshadows the struggles Gemma must face as she relives her past. Emilie Hirsch also stars. Check out the clip below: »
