Jennifer Lawrence The Bridesmaid
Lawrence, 23, was one of 11 bridesmaids for her brother Blaine Lawrence’s wedding to Carson Massler. The Lawrence-Massler nuptials took place at the Hermitage Farm in Kentucky in October 2013.
In the cover photo, Massler, in her white lace Monique Luhillier wedding dress is the main focus, while the American Hustle and Hunger Games star stuns to the right of the photo in a peach gown with a heart-shaped neckline. In photos within the magazine, Lawrence’s brother looks dapper posing in a Jos A. Bank suit that he paired with cowboy boots.
Despite the rainy day for the wedding, the 325 guests had a ball. There was even a patch of sunshine that came through just as the couple was exchanging their vows. »
This week on The Collision, we're joined by TV editor Allison Keene to discuss HBO's True Detective. We talk about the show's instant-hit status, the way it subverts the buddy-cop drama and other unique aspects, viewer expectations, positive and negative reactions to the series, and much more. We also look ahead to other quality TV shows that have recently returned (like Hannibal and Bates Motel) or are about to return (like Game of Thrones and Veep). As always, we finish up with our recommendations.

The 86th Academy Awards have come and gone but the tweets, well, those will endure forever.
Case in point: Ellen’s Twitter-breaking selfie (embedded above), which was crammed with more Hollywood A-Listers than the court side seats at a Los Angeles Lakers game. Rocketing around the Internets at breakneck speed, the snap, seemingly born of a spontaneous creativity but in fact carefully scripted, has racked up more than 3.3 million retweets since Sunday, making it the most popular 140-character status update of all time. As in, like, ever.
Naturally, the Internet has responded in kind (because Internet) and collected below are 9 of the wittiest spoofs, parodies, and retorts to surface thus far…
9. Lego Misunderstanding
Because plastic, interlocking bricks are the artistic medium of our times. Bonus points for fidelity to the source material.

I, for one, will welcome our new celebrity overlords. »

There's something new at this year's Oscars. Most people won't notice it, even though it'll be on-camera numerous times. It'll be so well-hidden in plain sight, it'll be practically invisible. But without it, the Academy Awards could not function at all. Yup, the briefcase. This year's Oscars will mark the debut of a brand-new, black leather Bally case. It won't have retina-scan locks or motion-detecting alarms, but it will be embossed with the Oscar and PricewaterhouseCoopers logos."They're just super-nice-

With the Oscar nominations announced, speculation is running wild on who got subbed and who is undeservedly praised. Most notable on everybody’s snub list is Oprah Winfrey, who was considered a shoe-in for a Best Supporting Actress nomination for her work in Lee Daniels’ The Butler.
Winfrey, who had not appeared in a feature film since 1998’s Beloved, received a Screen Actor’s Guild (SAG) Award nomination as well as a BAFTA nomination for her role, but was left out by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) when they failed to nominate her for a Golden Globe.
Despite the Golden Globe snub, many still considered Winfrey a top Oscar contender. If nominated, this would have been Winfrey’s second nomination. She was nominated for Best Supporting Actress in 1986 for her work in The Color Purple. Winfrey was passed over in favor of nominees Luita Nyong’o (12 Years A Slave »
Over 6,000 members of the film industry, including actors, directors, composers, etc, have voted to narrow down the contenders for this year’s Academy Awards and the nominees have finally been announced.
No surprise, 12 Years A Slave earned nominees in most of the major categories – Best Actor Chiwetel Ejiofor, Best Supporting Actor Michael Fassbender, Best Supporting Actress Lupita Nyong’o, Best Director Steve McQueen and Best Picture. David O. Russell continued his Oscar nomination streak, earning a Best Director nod and also going four for four in the Acting categories for his film American Hustle – Amy Adams, Jennifer Lawrence, Christian Bale and Bradley Cooper were all nominated.
The list of nominees is hardly surprising, but there is one surprising potential Oscar winner – Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa »
