    If you had peeked into my home at 8 pm last Sunday night, you would have found my family and me sprawled out on our designated sides of the couch, eagerly anticipating what has developed into our favorite award show - the Tonys. Unlike the Oscars or the Grammies, which I usually glance at haphazardly while eating dinner to indulge my shameless fascination with Hollywood couture, the Tony Awards always require my full attention. The 3 hour long ... Read More
This week, the Internet seems really mad at Anne Hathaway, mostly for not being Jennifer Lawrence. A Salon article on Tuesday begged the question “Is it a gender double-standard—or is it her face?” The article concludes that, while all women in the public eye face a ridiculous amount of scrutiny, Hathaway seems to have it particularly bad. People hate when she seems too polished, and think her attempts at relatability are awkward and forced. Her ... Read More
Though some viewers thought that Michelle Obama’s moment on the Oscars was exciting, show-stopping, or (at the very least) innocent enough, there were many others who expressed outrage at her appearance. In Iran, the network Fars News photoshopped the First Lady into a more modest ensemble, adding sleeves and a higher neckline to her Naeem Khan gown.  An Iranian woman appearing on state TV must wear a hijab that covers her arms, legs, and hair. Men must ... Read More
There are three major things we’ve been talking about at BUST re: The Oscars—Anne Hathaway’s nipples, Jennifer Lawrence’s wonderfully goofy presser, and “that tweet”. You know, the one that satirical news purveyor The Onion sent out the night of the awards, regarding Quvenzhané Wallis. I’ll refrain from repeating it because one, you’ve probably already seen it and two, it makes me feel icky. But check it ... Read More
Jennifer Lawrence (AKA everyone’s fantasy BFF) spoke with the press after her Best Actress Oscar win and was, obviously, wonderful. Lawrence’s perpetual goofy sarcasm and flat refusal to engage in any media nonsense make her a favorite not just of the Academy, but of us all. Who else could trip up the stairs on the way to retrieve an Oscar and, by doing so, make us love her even more? Since her first Oscar nomination for Winter’s Bone, Lawrence's ... Read More
OK. We get it. Seth MacFarlane is super audacious and doesn't give a crap who's offended by his comedy. A lot of the time, we love him for it. But seriously, what was with all the sexist nonsense at last night's Academy Awards? It seemed like every other punchline out of his mouth was engineered to be as smugly degrading toward women as possible. And it wasn't just sexism—for good measure, he sprinkled in some racism and homophobia, as well.  Before the ... Read More
Today the Oscars producers released the final list of presenters and performers for the February 24th broadcast. Apparently there’s going to be a celebration of movie musicals featuring Jennifer Hudson from Dreamgirls, Catherine Zeta-Jones representing Chicago, and basically the entire cast of Les Misérables. As long as Anne Hathaway doesn’t debut her own tearful rendition of “And I Am Telling You I’m Not Going,” this should be ... Read More
It’s officially time to get excited for the Oscars! With the list of 2011 Nominations announced yesterday, many of the incredibly talented individuals on the list are expressing their gratitude, excitement, and renewed/and/or/reaffirmed faith in their career path. Of course there are the nominees we all called, such as Natalie Portman and Nicole Kidman, both for Best Leading Actress in Black Swan and Rabbit Hole, respectively, but we were otherwise ...

Not only have the holidays arrived, but the equally glittery awards-show season lurks just around the corner. Say goodbye to the classic comedian host, though, because word on the street's (meaning, of course, the internet) that Anne Hathaway and James Franco will be MCing instead. Both are potential 2010 Oscar nominees- James Franco for that movie where he has to cut off his own arm, and Hathaway for Love and Other Drugs, the movie which she promoted on this ... Read More

Women Make Movies

BY Claire Hamilton in Artsy

  There’s already a buzz around this year’s Academy Awards. Not only is there a woman’s name in the boys club category of Best Director (only the fourth time a female director has featured in that list – go Kathryn!).. but there’s a nomination in the Documentary Feature category which is definitely one to watch. Which Way Home was made by Rebecca Cammisa with help from the organization Women Make Movies. The film follows ... Read More
