On Sunday night, Patricia Arquette called for equal pay during her acceptance speech at the 2015 Academy Awards ceremony. It was just one of the powerful political points made that night — a welcome change to the one-dimensional world of celebrity that, in many instances, fails to make good use of such a visible platform.

This year’s Academy Awards were memorable at best, as many stars used the platform to talk about civil rights, ALS, and equal rights for women, but one moment between old friends Sean Penn and director Alejandro González Iñárritu almost ruined the show. During Sunday’s telecast, Penn presented the Birdman filmmaker with the Best Picture Award. Before giving […]

The hot mama arrived matching the red carpet in a long flowing look and […]

The biggest night in showbiz is here: the 2015 Academy Awards. All the biggest stars in the world waltzed down the red carpet in their finery to find out who will take home the trophies. Leading the nominees this year are films like Birdman and The Grand Budapest Hotel with nine nominations each, while huge movies like […]

She may not be taking home a trophy tonight, but she’s still pulling out all the stops. After charming us in a Cinderella-esque blue Prada gown and taking home the Best Supporting Actress trophy, Lupita Nyong’o became the star of last year’s Academy Awards. So, how is she topping 2014? In 6,000 pearls. A glamorous custom gown […]

The 87th Annual Academy Awards are finally upon us, and while there was a major stir when Ava DuVernay and the cast of Selma were snubbed, every once in a while, the Academy gives African-American artists their dues. There are actors whose talents were too grand to ignore, such as Hattie McDaniel and Sidney Poitier, […]
