Common dropped by Jimmy Kimmel Live on Thursday with his shiny new Oscar to talk about his big night at the Academy Awards last weekend. The rapper, along with singer John Legend, won the best original song award for "Glory," which was featured in the movie Selma; the duo also took the stage to perform the hit, resulting in one of the most moving moments of the night. During his chat with Jimmy, Common revealed the inspiring message Jay Z gave him at the Vanity Fair afterparty and touched on a hilarious encounter he had with Oprah after his and John Legend's "real names" were announced - in a moment that was caught on camera, it seemed as though Oprah held up her hand to high-five Common and the rapper rejected her, moving on to hug Selma's David Oyelowo instead. Common insisted that it was an accident and »
Kristen Wiig leads a solid cast, including Tim Robbins, Joan Cusack, Wes Bentley, and James Marsden, in Welcome to Me as Alice Kleig, a young woman with Borderline Personality Disorder who wins the lottery. Off her meds and inspired by Oprah, she buys a talk show with her winnings, using it as a platform to broadcast her unique views on life to the rest of the world. Welcome to Me certainly has an interesting hook, and the trailer does have a nice line in gentle, slightly zany humour, but it all feels a little one-note, and I have to wonder if it can hold itself together for it's full runtime. Released: 1st May »

The story of a woman with a personality disorder, who obviously is off her meds, winning the lottery and spending the money to air her own talk show, Welcome to Me is indie gold, and Wiig is the person to deliver. Plus, the supporting cast is amazing, and if the trailer is a legitimate picture of the film, it should be brilliant.
Take a look below, and let me know what you think of this one. It hits May 1st.

What happens when a young woman with Borderline Personality Disorder wins the lottery?
In the case of Alice Klieg (Kristen Wiig), she quits her psychiatric meds and buys her own talk show. Inspired by the immortal Oprah, she broadcasts her dirty laundry as both a form of exhibitionism and a platform to share her peculiar views on everything from nutrition to relationships to neutering pets.
Wiig was intrigued by how real the bizarre and darkly-‐funny script felt, which she says made the “comedic parts even more funny and the dramatic parts more amazing.”
She hopes that the audience will have the same love-‐hate relationship with the character that she does. “You feel sorry for Alice and at the same time, you totally get why people are frustrated with her, and »

In an interview on Alison Rosen's podcast, Alison Rosen Is Your New Best Friend, Lee goes off on the 77-year-old comedian in light of the numerous sexual assault allegations against him. Lee served as a manager for Pryor, and wasn't shy about sharing her insight.
"It was a well-kept secret that Bill f*cked everything that moved," she claimed. "This kind of s**t that we're finding out about is beyond. I wasn't aware of this kind of business. There are people in the business who were aware of it and they're coming out now too."
"The condescension that was going on and the holier than thou. It got so over-the-top," she said about his attitude.

Documentary filmmaker and actress Jennifer Siebel Newsom is ready to declare a victory at Sunday's Oscars -- even without winning an award.
After a groundswell on social media brought attention to the #AskHerMore campaign, started by Newsom's The Representation Project and boosted by tweets from Amy Poehler, Reese Witherspoon, Lena Dunham and others, there was more attention than ever before on how top stars are often asked more questions about fashion than acting, especially compared to male celebrities.

Newsom is the founder and CEO of The Representation Project, a media advocacy group that calls out gender stereotypes, and the writer-director of 2011's Miss Representation, a critically acclaimed documentary about how women are under-represented in media.
"I'm thrilled," Newsom told Et of how #AskHerMore changed the conversation at the Oscars. "We had over 25 million impressions last night alone. That's incredible. We're changing the dialogue. We're changing »

Selma may have been snubbed from some major categories at the 2015 Academy Awards, but the historical drama, which chronicles Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s 1965 march for voting rights, made its mark on the awards ceremony with a Best Original Song win for "Glory." Not to mention that emotional musical performance that made everyone -- including Chris Pine -- break down in tears.

Well, it's that time of year again when pundits everywhere weigh in on the merits (or lack thereof) of the previous evening's Oscar telecast.
Here are my random observations:
Host Neil Patrick Harris was affable and likable and worked like hell to put on a good show. But there lies the rub. Traditionally, Oscar hosts never had to be chosen for their ability to carry Busby Berkeley-like song and dance extravaganzas. Dear old Jerry Lewis, Bob Hope and Johnny Carson were simply there to keep the traffic flowing to the podium in between rattling off some memorable one-liners. Billy Crystal quashed that tradition with his ever-outrageous opening production numbers that razzed the Academy and some of the nominees. The idea should have been retired with him when he announced he would no longer host the event. Last evening's opening act was certainly opulent and contained some »

While the Academy wants us to believe we should all be watching the stage on Oscars night, veteran award show viewers know the audience is where the action really goes down. From Meryl Streep jumping to her feet during Patricia Arquette's moving Best Supporting Actress acceptance speech to Chris Pine's flawless single man-tear during Common and John Legend's powerful performance of the Selma anthem "Glory," there were a number of memorable audience moments, which still have the Internet buzzing. So, in no particular order, here are the 18 best audience reactions (looking at you, Oprah!). Special shout-out to whoever decided to give out those Lego statues. Those fake »
While the 87th Academy Awards was televised in over 225 countries around the world on Sunday, there was plenty that fans didn't see on TV. ETonline was inside Hollywood's biggest night and has the inside scoop into what really happens at the Oscars.
While stars enjoy the cries of fans and the flashing bulbs of photographers when they first arrive at the Dolby Theatre, it's not the same for non A-listers. If you're not an invited celebrity guest, you are ushered in and told to "move along" until you get inside. The never-ending line is slow moving as everyone tries to soak it all in, but you definitely feel the pressure to just keep walking. The experience is very much like cattle being herded.
Once you're inside the theatre, the pressure is on to get to your seat as the show counts down the minutes until the host is set to take the stage. And just like »
If you didn't watch the 87th Academy Awards last night, you should at least watch the live performance of "Everything is Awesome" from The Lego Movie. The musical duo Tegan & Sara and the comedic hip-hop trio The Lonely Island took to the stage with an energetic and colorful performance that even had Will Arnett as Lego Batman and Questlove as Robin on the drums. And during that number, a whole bunch of dancers handed out Lego Oscar statues to some of Hollywood's biggest names in the audience, such as Oprah Winfrey, Emma Stone, Steve Carell and more. And you may be able to get your own. Look! First of all, here's some great moments captured of the building block Oscar in the crowd: .@Oprah was very excited about her Lego Oscar! #Oscars2015 pic.twitter.com/kSioNKd05Z— Variety (@Variety) February 23, 2015 Watch Emma Stone gracefully accept her Lego #Oscar: http://t. »

The energetic performance of Best Original Song nominee "Everything Is Awesome!!" from "The Lego Movie" at last night's Academy Awards was one of the highlights of the show, and the distribution of Lego-crafted Oscars during the segment was a creative, whimsical touch. Now, the man who created the statuettes has explained how he got involved in making them, and how much he loves their warm reception from Hollywood's A-list.
Nathan Sawaya, an artist known for his work with LEGOs (he's recreated classic pieces including the Mona Lisa and Venus de Milo using only the toy blocks), had crafted an earlier version of the statuette seen on Sunday night, an image that quickly went viral when "Lego Movie" co-director Philip Lord tweeted it out after being snubbed in the Best Animated Feature category. But when filmmakers found out that "Awesome" was a nominee, Sawaya said they had some more fun up their sleeves. »

Last year I had quite a bit to say about the Oscar show itself. This yearc Eh, not so much. The show wasn't very good in my opinion, but at the same time I don't really blame that on Neil Patrick Harris, most anyone would have suffered with the material he was given. Granted, the overall night made it seem like Harris contributed far less to the show than Ellen DeGeneres did last year, or perhaps he just can't deliver comedy as well as DeGeneres. Many of Harris's jokes fell dreadfully flat. His opening monologue played more like a eulogy to the Oscars and the industry as a whole rather than the comedic roasting it was meant to deliver, and it wasn't only Harris. Jack Black's addition to the opening musical number was not only great, it was spot on. Liam Neeson even continued the trend as he introduced »
