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, »
It’s a well-known fact that everyone wants to be Jennifer Lawrence’s best friend. Who among us hasn’t imagined scarfing down pizza with the American Hustle star while laughing at fart jokes and oh, yeah — hanging with Bradley Cooper like it ain’t no thang? But we never knew what it was actually like to be J. Law’s best friend — until now.
Lawrence’s real-life Bff, model Laura Simpson, was the actress’ date to last week’s Oscars, which led Simpson to write a pretty epic MySpace post about the night. Truly, it may go down as »

Admit it - at one time or another you might have fantasized about what it would be like if you were Jennifer Lawrence's bestie. Well, Laura Simpson is, and in a post on MySpace, she reveals that it is everything we could have imagined and then some. Simpson was the American Hustle nominee's date to the Oscars on Sunday (along with JLaw's on-again boyfriend Nicholas Hoult). But you might know her as the girl in the black dress who Lawrence grabbed as she almost face-planted on the red carpet. She uses "my freshly done Lauren Conrad up do to break her fall, »

It’s no secret that Scandal is a big hit in the United States — but Jimmy Kimmel would like everyone to know that there’s also a Spanish-speaking version of the Shonda Rhimes drama, and it’s kind of a big deal in Mexico.
Welcome to … Escandalo! For Kimmel’s version of the show, he enlisted actual Scandal actors to create a telenovela that’s just a smidgeon crazier than Shonda Rhimes’s actual show. Whatever you’re picturing, it’s even better. Plus, it has Guillermo in the role of El Presidente. Let’s just say, Kimmel has this handled. »

We open on Fitz (Tony Goldwyn) and Olivia (Kerry Washington) doing what they do best … bitterly arguing in between bouts of boinking. The sheets aren’t even dry following some hotel room romp and they’re already making with the bickering. The gist … she’s still upset he made Jake Command, and he’s all jealous about her making Jake her beard.
And it doesn’t help matters that everything out of Fitz’s mouth is some offensively derogatory term, as he calls Liv a “Hen” and “Prize” (not to mention “Sweetie,” “Honey,” “Doll,” “Tootsie,” and “Toots”). Hey, Liv, don’t be so upset! He also uses those terms of endearment with waitresses, lap dancers, and the Israeli Prime Minister.

Loved the style on Scandal's March 6 episode, "We Do Not Touch the First Ladies?" Lucky for you, Us Weekly has tracked down the episode's best looks. For the opening scene, Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington) wears a Marni jacket with a black and white pattern that retails for a cool $1900 on Marni.com. However, thanks to Washington's real-life pregnancy and some strategic camera shooting, we never got a full shot of the jacket. In fact, the blazer's criss-crossing pattern screams out conflict, making it perfect for the [...] »

From philandering president to criminal polygamist -- What would Olivia Pope think?
"Scandal" star Tony Goldwyn -- President Fitzgerald Grant himself -- is set to play the infamous Warren Jeffs in Lifetime's upcoming movie "Outlaw Prophet," THR reports. The film tells the true story of Jeffs, the leader of a Fundamentalist Mormon polygamist sect who ranked on the FBI's 10 Most Wanted List for more than a year. After eluding authorities, he was ultimately apprehended by a Nevada Highway Patrol trooper.
"Outlaw Prophet" is based on Stephen Singular's best-selling book "When Men Become Gods," which tracks Jeffs' rise to power following the death of his father, Rulon Jeffs. Academy Awards executive producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron ("Bonnie & Clyde") will serve as EPs on the film alongside Judith Verno ("Lizzie Borden Took an Ax"). Lifetime has yet to set a premiere date.

Kristen Bell brought a burrito to the Oscars. Kerry Washington packed snacks in her purse. Since the annual ceremony doesn't serve food, many stars in the audience were forced to fend off their hunger during the long show with their own travel-sized treats, and Jennifer Lawrence was no exception.
The lover of Doritos and junk food in general brought a bag of Pop Rocks into the Dolby Theatre with her for the awards show. Surprisingly, though, she wasn't the one who had packed them. Instead, it was the folks on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" who gave her the Pop Rocks she took into the Oscars.
"When I'm presenting, I'm going to pour them into my mouth," she told Us Weekly on the red carpet before the show. As we now know, she didn't follow through on that claim.
But since she is Jennifer Lawrence, the Oscar winner also came with protein-filled snacks of her own. »
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 »

This story first appeared in the March 14 issue of The Hollywood Reporter magazine. Facing a huge NBC marketing blitz behind Jimmy Fallon's shift to 11:35 p.m., the other men of broadcast TV's late-night landscape are fighting back with what they know best. As Fallon's Tonight Show averaged a big 6.9 million viewers its first two weeks, ABC's Jimmy Kimmel Live! countered with a mix of aggressive guest booking (Toronto Mayor Rob Ford, faux nemesis Matt Damon), corporate synergy (Scandal star Kerry Washington, the debut of Disney's Guardians of the Galaxy trailer) and another viral prank (Live!

After low ratings for its second airing, “Mind Games” could become the third Tuesday ABC drama to get a quick hook this season.
The network has done Ok with “Marvel’s Agents of Shield” and has high hopes for “Resurrection,” which debuts this Sunday, but otherwise has struggled mightily with its high volume of new dramas this season. Even some shows that finished their runs, like “Betrayal” and “Once Upon a Time in Wonderland,” have been ratings lightweights.
The drama failures have dragged down a net that still has pockets of bright spots like “Scandal” and “Shark Tank.” For the season, ABC is in fourth place in key demos as well as total viewers, down nearly 10% from last year.
Tuesday at 10 p.m. alone has seen lottery drama “Lucky 7″ get the ax after two low-rated outings in the fall (including a 0.7 rating in adults 18-49 in its second week), and »

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:

It Girl Lupita Nyong'o didn't just meet fellow It Girl Rihanna--she took a selfie with her! The Oscar winner crossed paths with Rihanna during Paris Fashion Week at Miu Miu's show Tuesday. Naturally, they needed to capture this moment. Lupita Instagrammed the shot of the smiling twosome, calling her newfound Bff "sensational."

The 31-year-old star has snapped selfies with everyone from Cate Blanchett (who nabbed the Best Actress Oscar for Blue Jasmine) to Scandal's Kerry Washington to the one and only Oprah »
I am no more.
But the glorious finale of my life, too brief though watched by millions, was sensual mastication in the mouths of the world's greatest beauties. My only regret, days later whether unnaturally purged or properly digested, is that I never reached the pillowy lips of the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award Winner.
To Angelina... my unrequited love!
10 Ellen DeGeneres for ordering me
06 Jared Leto who had for too long forsaken my brothers and sisters.
05 Julia Roberts you have worshipped her megawatt smile but I have known it intimately.
03 Brad Pitt who so lovingly passed out the paper plates which did cradle me in those final moments and who held me so gently as his perfect teeth pulled desperately at my cheesy surfaces. I »

On March 8, Lena Dunham can be added to that mix when she hosts the sketch comedy show (with musical guest The National). It seems like a given that this would've happened eventually, considering both the popularity and controversy surrounding Girls, the HBO comedy she created and stars in.
Get ready for some big laughs! Conan O'Brien will host the 2014 MTV Movie Awards for the first time, he announced on his show, Conan, Tuesday night. The funny man, 50, joins other comedians, including Rebel Wilson, Russell Brand and Jason Sudeikis, who have helmed the show in years past. And though nominees won't be revealed until Thursday, the late night talk show host is sure to be in good company at the reliably amusing event, which drew A-listers Zac Efron, Kerry Washington and Brad Pitt (to name a few!) last year. The awards show will be airing live from the Nokia »
