J Lo’s Oscars Afterparty Dress Is Extremely Sexy – Excuse Me as I Catch My Breath
After wearing a mirror-mosaic gown by Tom Ford on the Oscars red carpet, Jennifer Lopez switched into her second look of the night for the Vanity Fair afterparty that was equally as sexy.
J Lo wore a strapless Zuhair Murad gown that kind of reminded me of a sparkly peacock. It featured black, purple, blue, and green sequins, and even had a feathered accent across the bodice. The singer also showed off plenty of leg thanks to a thigh-high slit. She completed her outfit with matching heels and a clutch. Read on to see all angles of her outfit ahead.
Rami Malek Lived His Best Life at the Oscars
One might say Rami Malek is living his best life. During award season he swept the board, winning an Oscar, a SAG award, a BAFTA, a Golden Globe . . . the list goes on. But it’s not just the wins that represent Rami’s best. He’s also had plenty of funny award season moments. May we remind you of his gloriously awkward moment with Nicole Kidman, or the adorably pure moment when he introduced himself to Lady Gaga?
It turns out, he was just getting started with cute tidbits. The Oscars was when the Bohemian Rhapsody actor really shone. He went full Champagne Rami while waiting for his award to be engraved, fell off the stage and had paramedics tend to him (he was OK), and kissed every Oscars attendee he could find.
Ahead, see every single photo from Rami’s big night. He should honestly win an extra award for being the most entertaining guest.
Did Olivia Colman Give the Most Endearing Oscars Speech Since Sally Field’s?
If Olivia Colman hasn’t already won your heart with her incredible talent and earnest wit, her adorable speech at the Academy Awards is sure to do the trick. On Sunday, the 45-year-old actress was visibly stunned as she took home the Oscar for best actress for her role as Queen Anne in The Favourite. “It’s genuinely quite stressful,” she laughingly admitted. “This is hilarious . . . I got an Oscar!”
Colman went on to thank the film’s director, Yorgos Lanthimos, along with her castmates and her agent. Possibly the most endearing moment of her speech came when Colman mentioned fellow nominees – Lady Gaga, Melissa McCarthy, Yalitza Aparicio, and Glenn Close – and couldn’t help but fangirl over Close (which is completely understandable). “And to be in this category with these extraordinary women . . . ,” the Oscar winner began, before getting distracted by Close. “Glenn Close, you’ve been my idol for so long and this is not how I wanted it to be. I think you’re amazing and I love you very much!”
Again, definitely an understandable reaction to any proximity to Close. The actress then thanked her parents and her “best friend” and husband, Ed (“25 years and you’ve been my best supporter”), and she shouted out her children, who she said she hoped were still up watching at home because “this is not going to happen again.” Colman also dedicated her Oscar win to aspiring actresses, saying, “Any little girl that’s practicing her speech on the telly, you never know.”
Watch the truly delightful speech ahead – including Colman ending her speech by just exclaiming, “Lady Gaga!”
A Star Is Born Is Returning to Theaters With 12 Minutes of New Footage and a Brand-New Song
You might have naively assumed that because Lady Gaga won an Oscar for A Star Is Born and also gave a performance at the award show with costar Bradley Cooper that left the world collectively swooning, that the buzz for the musical drama was officially over. But according to The Hollywood Reporter, we’re still very much in the midst of the Born-aissance.
Cooper’s Oscar-nominated film will be rereleased in over 1,150 theaters with 12 minutes of new footage included, starting on Friday. The special edition of the film is apparently being shared to celebrate Gaga’s Oscar win for best original song for the film’s hit, “Shallow.” (A Star Is Born was also nominated for best picture.)
So, what will these 12 never-before-seen minutes of footage entail? If it were up to me, it would just be an extralong montage of Cooper’s Jackson Maine playing with his dog, Charlie, in the yard. But since it’s not, the new footage will contain extended performances of the songs “Black Eyes” and “Alibi,” as well as of Gaga’s character, Ally, singing an a cappella performance of “Shallow” in the grocery store parking lot at the start of the film. Audiences will also be treated to longer looks at Ally singing “Is That Alright?” to Jack at their wedding, as well as Jack recording “Too Far Gone” in the studio.
If Friday feels like it’s too far away for you to wait, you can check out one of the special “encore” scenes right now over at THR, which features Jack and Ally writing a brand-new song, “Clover,” which never made it to the film’s soundtrack.
