There's no doubt about it—Kelly Ripa looked absolutely stunning at the Academy Awards. The daytime talk-show host hit the red carpet Sunday night in a long, form-fitting gown, and she really worked it. You know why? Aside from just being a beauty, the blue-eyed blond was just so comfortable, because this dress wasn't a loaner. Ripa revealed during her show Live With Kelly and Michael today that she actually bought the beautiful dress online, and shared that her impulse purchase paid off. "So when you do these award shows, designers will loan you dresses and you try them on, and it's like very dramatic all the time. It's just fraught with all kinds of, 'This needs to be »

Ellen DeGeneres may have pulled in boffo ratings by hosting the Academy Awards on Sunday night, but she was not the top dog come Monday. The latest syndicated ratings have DeGeneres' daytime talk show's live Oscar special narrowly losing to Live With Kelly and Michael's Oscar outing. Live-plus-same-day ratings among metered markets give Kelly Ripa and Michael Strahan's show a 4.9 rating among households on Monday. That makes it the No. 1 syndicated talk show of the day, narrowly besting Ellen's 4.8 rating, and places it as the highest-rated telecast since Regis Philbin co-

Gold, who played volleyball at the University of Kentucky and was a cheerleader in high school, wanted the makeover to help her achieve her goal of being a Bengals’ cheerleader.

Apparently still running on the adrenaline from the Academy Awards the night before, Nyong'o had shed her blue dress by the time of her interview. She instead has an equally stunning, lemon-yellow outfit, because she is a fashion goddess. In Nyong'o's arms, of course, is her "golden man, Oscar."
To say Nyong'o is pleased with her award might be an understatement. As it turns out, the actress has basically held tight to Oscar ever since she won him at the awards ceremony on Sunday.
"For the first half of the night, I was being very, very selfish," Nyong'o says. "I wouldn't even let anyone take a picture with it!"
It was only the considerable weight of the Oscar that »

The 31-year-old beauty joked she needs to build herself a trophy room for all the hardware she's won this awards season. "I think I have to," she laughed. "I really have to get a two-bedroom apartment and then have this on the mantle right in the middle or something." As for her Oscar win, Nyong'o says she still can't believe it. »
She nabbed the Best Supporting Actress Oscar Sunday for 12 Years a Slave - which also earned the night's biggest prize - but Lupita Nyong'o also deserves some unofficial honors: Most Charming New Star. On Live with Kelly and Michael Monday morning, Kelly Ripa asked Nyong'o, 31, whether she'd build a trophy room for all her awards season wares. "I think I have to," replied the actress, before reconsidering. "I really have to get a two-bedroom apartment!" But first, she has to digest her win. "It hasn't set in," she said.

Ben Affleck knows the Oscars. The winner of two Academy Awards himself (writing for "Good Will Hunting" and Best Picture for "Argo"), the actor-director-writer-producer knows the system. So who does he think should win best picture in 2014?
Of course, Affleck is a little biased toward this film -- his wife, Jennifer Garner, co-stars. He also points out that the rest of the film helps too though, especially the social issues and emotionalism. "My heart is with 'Dallas Buyers Club,'" Affleck explains. "To me that's my personal, emotional favorite."
That said, Affleck isn't counting anyone out. In rapid succession he mentions other nominees: "Gravity," "12 Years a Slave," "American Hustle," "Wolf of Wall Street." Affleck really doesn't want to choose.
"It's a shame, because there really isn't a best," he says. "It's not like »

With a rock like that, we'd never remove our ring, but then again, Amber Heard has proven time and time again how much she tries to protect her privacy.
