Daily News Cate Blanchett & Amy Adams went to a tattoo parlor together with their men in tow after the Oscars! I would never have predicted that for a double date between them, would you? The bandages indicate that at least Cate and Amy's man got tattooed.

Ellen DeGeneres wasn’t the only Oscar photographer this past Sunday.
DeGeneres’ famous Oscar selfie — which included Brad Pitt, Meryl Streep, Jennifer Lawrence, and many others — became the most retweeted message of all-time (3.1 million) after Ellen posted it during the Academy Awards.
But Ellen was not alone on Instagram and Twitter. Here are some of our favorite social-media pics from the 86th annual Academy Awards:

At long last, Iranian-born director Marjane Satrapi's buzzy Sundance 2014 title "The Voices" has a Us distributor. Lionsgate will handle the genre-bending film about Jerry (Ryan Reynolds), a lovable but disturbed factory worker who yearns for the attention of a female coworker. When their relationship takes a sudden turn, Jerry's talking pets, a sinister cat and benevolent dog, lead him down a fantastical, murderous path. The film costars Anna Kendrick, Jacki Weaver and Gemma Arterton Sound quirky? You bet. Satrapi directed her much-loved tragicomic autobiography "Persepolis," Oscar-nominated for Best Animated Feature, in 2007. "The Voices" looks to be just as darkly funny and tonally outrageous -- Film.com called it "A loopy, ghastly, funny, morbid and unforgettable 100 minutes." »

One of my favorite films I saw at this year’s Sundance Film Festival took me completely by surprise in the best way possible, and now you too will be able to enjoy the delightful wickedness of director Marjane Satrapi’s (Persepolis) dark comedy The Voices. Lionsgate has acquired Us distribution for the pic, which stars Ryan Reynolds as a loveable psychopath who converses with his dog, cat, and other disembodied parts in his droll apartment. As I said in my review, Reynolds is positively stellar in the lead role and Satrapi mesmerizes as she takes us inside the mind of one twisted individual, basking in all of the colorful eccentricities of his point of view. No details are given as to when Lionsgate will release The Voices, but the studio feels like a smart fit for the genre-bending pic. The film also stars Gemma Arterton, Anna Kendrick, and Jacki Weaver in supporting roles. »

"The 'Wickedly' Talented Adele Dazeem"
Travolta’s completely off base introduction made him an instant punch line of the night, and John Travolta, Idina Menzel, Adele Dazeem and Adele Dazim were all trending on Twitter during Sunday’s ceremony.
Menzel, who performed the Oscar-winning song “Let It Go” from Frozen, did not let the introduction bother her, as she went on stage and delivered a brilliant performance of the massive hit song. She has not commented on the flub.
John Travolta Releases Statement
After a days of ridicule, Travolta released a statement on the now infamous introduction, saying, “I’ve been beating myself up all day. Then I thought…What would Idina Menzel say? She’d say, ‘Let it go, »
Ever since John Travolta butchered Idina Menzel’s name while introducing her at the Oscars on Sunday, people who watched the epic fail have been clamoring to find out how the “Grease” star would mangle their name, as well. As it turns out, a number of celebrities don’t have anything better to do, either. Anna Kendrick, Zachary Quinto, Jessica Biel, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, and Kat Dennings are among the famous faces that have used Slate’s “Adele Dazeem Name Generator.” Also read: Idina Menzel Broadway Musical Capitalizes On Travolta’s Oscar Mess-Up “I can’t get enough of this, »

Though he certainly didn't mean to, John Travolta started a meme during his very short appearance at the 86th Academy Awards. Even reading off a teleprompter, he just couldn't figure out how to say Idina Menzel ... while introducing Idina Menzel. That was pretty awkward.
It took no time at all for a Travoltified name generator to hit the internet so anyone and everyone can find out what he would call them, thanks for the good people at Slate. Even a few celebrities have gotten in on the fun, generating their own Travoltified names.

The 2014 Oscars have come and gone, but lucky for us we have Instagram snapshots to last a lifetime. 12 Years a Slave‘s Lupita Nyong’o has been living a Cinderella-like fairy tale over the last few weeks, charming award show audiences with her poise and stealing the spotlight on red carpets with her stunning style choices. The whirlwind continued over Oscar weekend, where she schmoozed with some of Hollywood’s elite and even made a new friend. Hint: he’s gold and his name is Oscar.
The 86th annual Academy Awards was full of wonderful and weird moments, including Ellen DeGeneres‘ massive celebrity selfie and gigantic mid-show pizza order. If you were one of the concerned Oscar viewers worried that Ellen had missed Kerry Washington‘s request for a slice (it’s hard when Harrison Ford cuts the line), rest assured that Olivia Pope handled her hunger with some gluten-free ‘za backstage. »
