Oprah Winfrey to Host the Oscars?

Originally posted 07/08/2011 04:15PM

She bid her talk show farewell in May, and ever since, Oprah Winfrey's loyal fans and followers have kept their eyes on their idol, waiting for her next move.

But, despite reports Friday, one thing seems for sure: Although Winfrey, 57, who now calls the OWN network home, is known for going big, she won't be honoring the biggest stars from the big screen this year.

Sources at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences say that Winfrey is not in talks to host the 84th annual Oscar ceremony in February.

"The camera loves Oprah. Oprah's a genius," Academy president Tom Sherak tells The Hollywood Reporter. "But it's not true, and I don't know where that story even came from."

Jake Gyllenhaal & Taylor Swift's Oscar Party Run-In

Originally posted 02/28/2011 03:35PM

When exes Taylor Swift and Jake Gyllenhaal bumped into each other at one of the Oscars's most exclusive afterparties, it didn't look like they were engaging in idle party chatter.

"They were outside near the restroom having a discussion," a guest at the Vanity Fair bash tells PEOPLE. "It seemed a bit more serious – it certainly wasn't a 'Hi, how are you?' talk."

The musician, 21, and the actor, 30, started dating last fall but broke up in December.

Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez Step Out Together on Oscar Night

They've used every cliché in the book, describing each other as "family", "best friends" and "great" people – anything to avoid confirming a relationship. But Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber let actions speak louder than words (again) Sunday night when they turned up together at Vanity Fair's post-Oscars bash.

Gomez, in a red Grecian gown by Dolce & Gabbana, and Bieber, in a black tux – with a red pocket square to match his date – looked every bit the comfortable couple as they posed with their arms around each other before the party, held at the Sunset Tower Hotel in West Hollywood.

Originally posted 02/28/2011 12:25PM

They may not have walked away with an Oscar, but these actors aren't leaving the Academy Awards completely empty-handed. And we're not just talking about the honor of being nominated.

According to the New York Post, Distinctive Assets has created a consolation gift bag, which will be distributed on Monday morning to the nominees who didn't win.

Its contents? Some pretty fantastic – and exotic – loot worth, in total, more than $23,000.



Virgin Galatic has provided an orbital space flight, according to the report, while the Huvafen Fushi resort has included a vacation at an underwater spa in the Maldives (furnished by Premier Tours) valued at $16,000.

Also in the gift bag: a pack of Swarovski-bedazzled electronic cigarettes ($100), a fitness retreat from Live in Fitness ($4,800), and some black caviar eye and neck cream from J. Holly International ($200), as well as the use of a private island for five days, complete with a private "houseman," from APrivateIsland.com ($12,000).

Should Corey Haim Have Been Included in Oscar Tribute?

Originally posted 02/27/2011 11:45PM

Once again, Corey Haim's death went unnoticed by his peers.

In the montage of actors who died over the last year during the Oscars, the Academy did not include the Lost Boys star, who succumbed to pneumonia and a heart condition on March 10, 2010, just days after last year's awards ceremony.

Haim, who was 38, also wasn't mentioned in the Screen Actors Guild montage. SAG Awards officials said the show was running too long and the "In Memoriam" had to be shortened.



Tell us if you think Haim was snubbed.

Hollywood babysitters must've been in hot demand Sunday as new moms Céline Dion, Amy Adams and Penélope Cruz stepped out at the Academy Awards.

Dion, who welcomed twin sons Eddy and Nelson four months ago, joined husband René Angélil as she hit the red carpet in a curve-hugging Giorgio Armani Privé gown. Later, she pulled a quick-change, donning another stunning look while singing "Smile" during the show's in memoriam segment.

Meanwhile, Best Supporting Actress nominee Adams, who's said losing the pregnancy pounds was never a priority, looked gorgeous in her sparkling L'Wren Scott dress. However the first-time mom, who was joined by fiancé Darren Le Gallo, wasn't totally immune to baby talk on the red carpet. While chatting with E!'s Ryan Seacrest, she gave a special shout-out to 9-month-old daughter Aviana, who was watching at home.
