Oscars 2010: Live tweeting the Razzie Awards

Jen Chaney continues her Oscar pre-coverage-o-rama with live Tweets from the Razzie Awards, the annual celebration of all things horrendous in Hollywood filmmaking. The tweeting kicks off at 10 p.m. ET. Update: A transcript of last night's tweet fest (in reverse chronological order, of course) follows. -- 8:10 a.m. ET, Sunday, March 7 Transformers 2 just won worst picture. And that's our show folks. She also offered to take alternate line readings from the audience. I shot video for the site, so keep an eye out. Bullock just won worst actress and indeed showed up with a crate of All About Steve DVDs for everyone....

Oscars 2010: My five favorite moments from the Independent Spirits

Matt Dillon makes nice with the press scrum at Friday night's Spirit Awards. (Getty Images) I've logged more hours watching awards shows in my lifetime than I care to count. But I had never been inside one of the major ceremonies until I scored a ticket to last night's Independent Spirit Awards. After doing some interviews on the red -- well, technically, blue -- carpet, I went inside the venue, watched the action unfold from a table tucked in the back corner (yes, the Spirits put Chaney in a corner, and she's totally fine with that) and hit the after-party at the L.A. Live complex's Club Nokia. Here are my five favorite moments in no particular order: Chatting with Matt Dillon on the red carpet. The veteran actor, who presented a special award to Roger Ebert, doesn't appear to have aged a day since "The Flamingo Kid" era. And...

Oscars 2010: Live tweeting the Independent Spirit Awards

Jen Chaney continues her mad barrage of Oscar weekend coverage at tonight's Independent Spirit Awards, where she'll hit the red carpet, the ceremony and -- if she's still breathing and awake -- the after-party. Jen kicks off the tweeting around 7:30 p.m. ET. Update: A transcript of last night's tweet fest follows. -- 7:32 a.m. ET, Saturday, March 6 Girlfriend has to file early tomorrow a.m. So she's heading back to the hotel ... to amputate her feet. http://twitpic.com/16weei - The Spirits after-party The after-party is at Nokia Live -- two levels of space where my feet can hurt.

Oscars 2010: Meet Oscar nominee Gregg Helvey

The Washington and Baltimore region has plenty to be proud of this Oscar season. Two of the odds-on favorites in the acting categories -- Arlington native Sandra Bullock and Baltimorean Mo'Nique -- are from these parts. And so is another nominee: Gregg Helvey, an L.A. resident formerly from Loudon County, Va., who has received his first nomination in the live-action short film category. "Kavi" -- the story of an Indian boy forced into modern-day slavery by working in a brick kiln -- was Helvey's thesis project, one he had to complete before earning his degree at University of Southern California's film school. After completing the film less than a year ago, in April 2009, the 31-year-old now finds himself in the swirl of life as an Oscar nominee, an existence that involves hopscotching from film screenings to luncheons to parties. On nomination day, Helvey says, "I got so many phone...

Oscars 2010: The least win-worthy best pictures

No matter which film wins best picture at this year's Academy Awards -- even if it turns out to be "Avatar" -- it's unlikely to go down in history as one of the worst best pictures ever. Say what you will about having 10 nominees, but this field, for the most part, is pretty solid. That said, several past recipients of Oscar's highest honor have been perceived as less-than-stellar works of cinema, especially when compared with the Oscar competition they faced that particular year. The Huffington Post recently shared this look at undeserving best pictures. Meanwhile, I offer this list of five of the least win-worthy best pictures in modern times....

Oscars 2010: Partying with the Irish and Tom Cruise

Tom Cruise's mission? Pay tribute to J.J. Abrams (left). (Alberto E. Rodriguez/Getty Images) Where did Tom Cruise come from? Unless I missed him, he didn't walk the "green" carpet at the fifth annual "Oscar Wilde" pre-Academy Awards bash, thrown by the Arlington, Va.-based U.S.-Ireland Alliance. But when it came time to pay tribute to his friend and "Mission: Impossible" director J.J. Abrams -- one of three movie makers, and easily the least Irish of the bunch, honored during the event -- suddenly there was Cruise at a podium at Los Angeles's Ebell Club, as if he had sprung from the Earth like some gift from the "Top Gun" gods. Cruise spoke briefly, poking fun at Abrams's lack of Emerald Isle creds and likening him to a previously not-so-Irish honoree at this annual event by noting that Abrams was "following in the footsteps of James L. O'Brooks." Then Cruise, dressed...

Oscars 2010: Your dream Academy Awards host?

Is this man (Simon Cowell) the ideal Oscar host? (Reuters) Dispatching the tried and true emcees of yesteryear (Billy Crystal, Bob Hope), for the past few years Oscar organizers have been zigging and zagging all over the entertainment map in an attempt to snag higher ratings with buzzy hosts. But even Chris Rock (2004), Jon Stewart (2005, 2007) and Ellen DeGeneres (2006) didn't do enough to keep us from tuning out on what is really essentially just another industry convention awards ceremony. Last year Hugh Jackman did succeed in stifling some of our Oscar yawns with a rousing opening number and seemingly limitless energy. And he managed to help boost Oscar to its highest ratings -- 36.3 million viewers -- in years. But despite the bump, even Jackman got mixed reviews from critics and fans. This year, the Academy is shaking up the formula again with co-hosts Alec Baldwin...

Our own Jen Chaney is on the ground in Los Angeles to cover this weekend's Oscar events. First stop, tonight's U.S./Ireland Alliance Oscar Wilde: Honoring The Irish in Film pre-Academy Awards party. The highlight of tonight's fest: Tom Cruise presents a special award to writer/producer/director J.J.

'Jersey Shore's' big brains take on Jay Leno

Not even the cast of "Jersey Shore" can make Jay Leno funny. Last night, the re-vivified "Tonight Show with Jay Leno" spent six long minutes trying to wring laughs from MTV's Guidos and Guidettes in a Jeopardy-like "Battle of the Celebrity All-Stars" segment: Can't watch at work? Here's what you're missing. -- Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi (the one with the big hair bump) is unable to complete this book title: "Catcher in the _____." (Her reply: "closet.") -- Muscle-bound brawler Ronnie Ortiz-Magro names Puerto Rico as the country's 50th state. -- Sammi "Sweetheart" Giancola isn't able to answer any questions, but damn if her hair extensions don't look perfect. -- Ronnie incorrectly identifies Massachusetts Senator Scott Brown's nude Cosmo spread as a young Jay Leno. Only Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino appears to possess a brain not fake-tanned into catatonia, correctly identifying a photo of Fed chairman Ben Bernanke. And after spoofing...

Jessica Simpson, aka 'Sexual Napalm,' speaks out

Jessica Simpson (left) and Oprah Winfrey pose during a taping at Harpo Studios in Chicago. (AP) Jessica Simpson is not the forgiving kind. At least when it comes to ex-boyfriend John Mayer. You may recall that Mayer, in a recent Playboy article, went into explicit detail about his sex life with Simpson -- whom he dated for 10 months back in 2006-2007 -- in which he called her "sexual napalm" and compared her to crack cocaine. Aside from resenting the comments, Simpson tells Oprah Winfrey on today's show that she feels sorry for Mayer: "I tried to read the article, and I was so disappointed in him. It made me so sad, and it was really discouraging because that's not the John that I knew... I hope he gets his life together." Simpson also says Mayer did apologize for the comments, but that she didn't accept the apology. "I'm...

'Lost' Dueling Analysis: 'Sundown'

In which Jen and Liz register their complete dissatisfaction with Tuesday night's episode. Agree? Disagree? Add your opinion to the comments section below, then join J & L for the 2 p.m. "Lost" Hour live chat. And, in the meantime, check out the exhaustive "Lost" Central. MIB (Terry O'Quinn) removes a pesky dagger from his heart. (ABC) Jen: Liz, maybe I'm just fatigued, overworked, distracted or all of the above. But I wasn't particularly thrilled by tonight's episode. As a matter of fact, when Sayid -- evil incarnate model? -- killed Dogen after that random story about picking up his son from baseball practice, I was kind of glad. I'm sick of Dogen, sick of Lennon (who I guess also bit it) and sick of the temple. Me? Ready to move on. Liz: I know we're supposed to be "dueling" here, as per the headline, but Jen -- I...

'Hurt Locker' producer banned from Oscars

Breaking news from Oscar-land: The Academy has issued a press release this afternoon confirming that "Hurt Locker" producer Nicolas Chartier has been denied attendance to this Sunday's Academy Awards. Chartier is the man responsible for sending a frowned-upon e-mail to Academy voters, urging them to campaign for a "Hurt Locker" victory in the best picture category instead of a win for a "$500 M film," a blatant reference to sci-fi juggernaut "Avatar." According to the press release, "Academy rules prohibit 'casting a negative or derogatory light on a competing film.' The executive committee of the Academy’s Producers Branch, at a special session late Monday, ruled that the ethical lapse merited the revocation of Chartier’s invitation to the Awards." Chartier -- who has apologized for his electronically disseminated error -- has not been stripped of his nominee status. If "Hurt Locker" wins the Big Trophy, he will receive his Oscar statuette...

The 'Lost' Five: Things to ponder before tonight's episode

(ABC) Another Tuesday means another episode of "Lost." (And for me and Liz, it means another late Tuesday night trying to coherently analyze what just happened while we scour the Web for screen shots and Wikipedia entries that succinctly summarize important sections of the Bible.) Before we plunge once again into Los Angeles, the temple or any other random lighthouses that may suddenly get thrown into the mix, I offer this list of five things to ponder before tonight's episode, entitled "Sundown." 1. The Jack baby mama drama: Last week we learned that in our current, refreshed L.A. timeline, Jack has a son named David. But we still don't know who David's mommy is, other than a. she's a woman and, b. she's estranged from Dr. Shephard. During last week's "Lost" Hour discussion, some of you speculated it could be Juliet. Others suggested Kate, although that seems unlikely since...

Hollywood's most influential celebs?

Queen of influence Oprah Winfrey. (AP Photo/Harpo Productions, Inc., George Burns) On Monday, Forbes released its annual list of Hollywood's most influential celebrities. In shocking (shocking, I tell you) news, Oprah Winfrey tops the list (again?) thanks to her "diversified portfolio of media businesses and work in television, film, radio, magazine, Web and on stage, [that] has kept her highly visible for more than two decades." Plus: "She's spawned a secondary industry of people who give advice, and if she wasn't as influential as she is these people wouldn't have the credibility that they do." So, spawning Dr. Phil was a pro? Okay, fair enough. But what's the deal with the rest of the list? The complete top 10: 1. Oprah Winfrey 2. Steven Spielberg 3. Dr. Mehmet Oz 4. Bono 5. Clint Eastwood 6. Martin Scorsese 7. Ron Howard 8. Rush Limbaugh 9. Russell Simmons 10. James Cameron...

Winner's Circle: Randy Quaid

(AP) Tuck your John Candy jokes firmly back into your cheek. That isn't Candy -- it's erstwhile acclaimed actor Randy Quaid, all smiles as he exits a downtown Santa Barbara courthouse on Monday following a preliminary hearing -- along with wife Evi -- on felony charges of defrauding an innkeeper. And what's that in Quaid's hand? Why it's his Golden Globe award, won for his role in the 1987 miniseries "LBJ: The Early Years." Why bring it to a court hearing? Could it be to intimidate the plaintiff, who likely doesn't have a Globe of his own? Or perhaps to dazzle the authorities into dismissing the charges? Or is it to remind us that Mr. and Mrs. Quaid are on the fast track to out whackadoodling Gary Busey? You be the judge. I'm sure the actual judge overseeing this crazy train would be happy to step aside. P.S. Quaid's...

Comment Box: Andrew Koenig; Miss Golden Globes; Mickey Rourke

A missing persons poster for actor Andrew Koenig is seen on a light pole in front of the Olympic Cauldron on February 24, 2010 in Vancouver, Canada. (Getty Images) When I heard that Boner from "Growing Pains" was missing, my first thought was "hasn't he been missing for the past 15 years?" Does that make me a bad person? Nope, not one bit. In fact, it pretty much puts you in line with the rest of us who had vague memories of Koenig as a minor character on one of the least memorable sitcoms of the '80s. Frankly, I wouldn't have been surprised to learn Koenig was a peripheral player on "Gimme a Break" or "Small Wonder." And despite such an auspicious start in acting, Koenig's career -- at least as far as we couch potatoes were concerned -- trailed off into obscurity once he left "Growing Pains" in...
