The 2014 MTV Movie Awards were announced today and once again it's a grab bag of nominees, but this year is even more curious than most as the one film thought to be the most populist film of the lot, Gravity, comes away with only one nomination and that being for Sandra Bullock for Best Actress. Then you have the Movie of the Year category, which pits The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug and The Hunger Games: Catching Fire against American Hustle, The Wolf of Wall Street and 12 Years a Slave. I don't know how the nominees are decided at the MTV Movie Awards, but I know the winners are supposedly determined by MTV viewers, which means, looking at this list, the Hunger Games crowd is likely to make a huge mark.... or, it could be the Leonardo DiCaprio crowd that became ever-so-vocal after he, predictably, lost Best Actor at the Oscars. »

Award season came to a close this week, but that isn't all bad news - it meant even more celebrities than usual were out and about, snapping adorable selfies and sharing great photos on social media. Some of the cutest action took place before, during, and after the Academy Awards, including Channing Tatum and his wife, Jenna Dewan, eating pizza with Jamie Foxx and his daughter Corinne; Lupita Nyong'o wearing a hat from Ellen DeGeneres with her winning pose on it; and Lupita's brother posing for a great photo with Benedict Cumberbatch. It wasn't all about the big show this week, though. Ian Somerhalder pretended to be a police officer at Mardi Gras; Dwayne Johnson feasted on pancakes; Oprah hung out with Snoop Lion; Selena Gomez and Taylor Swift got cuddly separately with other gal pals; Reese Witherspoon and Drew Barrymore cooked together; and much more.

A lifelong dancer, Jenna Dewan Tatum wasn't stressed in the least about losing the 33 pounds she gained before giving birth to daughter Everly in May 2013. In fact, Channing Tatum's actress wife of three years rarely gave it a second thought. "I didn't think much about losing weight," the 5-foot-3, size-0 Dewan Tatum -- who was in her skinny jeans and back on the set of Lifetime's Witches of East End six weeks after giving birth -- tells Us Weekly. "I was overwhelmed and in [...] »
Ellen DeGeneres took the most epic selfie of all time on Sunday night, and since then, the famous snapshot has served as a creative muse for a couple of amazing recreations. The Twitpic, which was retweeted over three million times (!), got The Simpsons and Lego treatment! Jared Leto, who was cut-off in the original picture (how rude!), tweeted the hilarious photo of the stars animated as characters from the iconic series and wrote, "I've officially joined @TheSimpsons! #oscars." The animated version of the picture included all of the original celebs—Ellen, Leto, Jennifer Lawrence, Bradley Cooper, Channing Tatum, Meryl Streep, Julia Roberts, Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie, Kevin Spacey, Lupita »

Lupita Nyong’o may have won the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress, but it was her brother, Peter Nyong’o, Jr., who was the life of the party.
Peter attended the Oscars as his big sister’s date and has been a regular at award shows along with his stunning sister. He is currently a freshman at Stetson University, College of Arts and Sciences, where, according to Instagram, he completed his first semester with a 4.0 Gpa. Other information gathered from his Instagram page: Peter is a Drake fan and even saw him in concert, he plays soccer and is a soccer fan – he likes Arsenal – and likes to play video games.
Peter earned a shoutout from his sister during her beautiful acceptance speech Sunday night.
“My brother, Junior, sitting by my side. Thank you so much, you are my best friend,” an emotional Nyong’o said.

The big winners at last night's 16-hour Oscar ceremony: Dreams. Inspiration. Heroes. So live the impossible, because that’s what Jared Leto's mom would want. Just keep livin', because no matter where you’re from, your dreams are valid and your magic is real. Hey, movie stars, we get it — nobody’s against dreams, right? We are all, as Fred Durst would put it, in agreeance here? But like Matthew McConaughey says, "We all need somebody to look up to, somebody to look down on, somebody to chase, somebody to love, »
It's the selfie that set a new standard: Thanks to the sheer wattage of its star power, Ellen DeGeneres' in-show Oscar snap — which featured front-row fixtures like Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, Jennifer Lawrence, Meryl Streep, Channing Tatum and roughly half of Jared Leto's face — quickly became the most re-tweeted pic of all time on Sunday night, shattering a record previously held by Barack Obama (sorry Chief). If only Bradley's arm was longer. ...

Liza Minnelli couldn't win at the 2014 Academy Awards. After Ellen DeGeneres joked that the iconic star was a drag queen, poor Minnelli didn't even make it into the host's star-studded selfie which then broke records and Twitter.
How did Minnelli miss out? Based on a photo that quickly made the Twitter rounds, the actress and singer just wasn't tall enough. Standing behind Julia Roberts, Kevin Spacey, Brad Pitt, Channing Tatum, Jennifer Lawrence and more, Minnelli didn't have a chance to be seen.
When seen from Liza Minnelli's perspective, Ellen's "super selfie" is a little less super: pic.twitter.com/blD7WOuLtF

Even in DeGeneres' follow-up selfie with hot actors like Pitt and Benedict Cumberbatch missed Minnelli. Maybe next year?
Arguably the most well-attended and sought-after Oscar party belongs to Conde Nast’s Vanity Fair. Gaining admittance suggests both clout and perseverance. I was granted 30 minutes to take a look around the most powerful room in Hollywood. No notebook, tape recorder or interviews. I was provided a window placard for my car which declared the time of my admittance, I was issued a badge-like plastic contraption that included my name, which was announced – equal parts social graces and security measures – during the approach to party’s new location at 8680 Sunset Blvd.
11:15 p.m. The line of black SUV’s snaking east on Sunset Boulevard were filled with starlets and producers, some clasping golden statues, others looking to drown their sorrows.
