Meet the BEGOTs: These Actors Are Going for Gold at the BAFTAs

Originally posted 02/13/2014 06:00PM

If an EGOT – the elusive combination of Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony that only 11 individuals have ever claimed – is one of Hollywood's highest honors, then it stands to reason that a BEGOT (that's an EGOT plus a BAFTA, and yes we did just make it up) is an even more impressive accomplishment. It's one better, is it not?

By our count, a mere four people have ever completed a BEGOT, and shockingly, only two of them were Brits: Audrey Hepburn, John Gielgud, Mike Nichols and Whoopi Goldberg. Still, nearly every artist in Hollywood should aspire towards a BEGOT (once they hear about it, that is), and Sunday night's BAFTA Film Awards offer a number of artists the chance to check off the next box in the BEGOT checklist.

Below, see the five stars working on their BEGOTs at the 2014 BAFTAs. Only one of them is British, which just goes to show you that the BEGOTs belong to us all, guv'nah.

Originally posted 01/16/2014 01:00PM

Whether it was the role of a heel-kicking news boy or an overenthusiastic camp counselor, all of this year's Oscar nominees got their start somewhere.

Their lucky breaks came long before the celebrated roles that Leonardo DiCaprio, Sandra Bullock and the rest of the nominated actors are known for today. These big and small screen gigs pushed 2014's Oscar contenders forward from random headshot to household name.

After, "Who are you wearing?," the most important question on the Oscars' red carpet is "Who are you here with?"

Celebrity couples are always alluring. Drench them in tulle, tuxes and accolades, and they become nearly irresistible. But it's a shame that today's biggest stars can't hob knob with the glamorous old guard of Tinseltown ... or can they?

Christian Bale could be back in the Winners' Circle at this year's Golden Globes, and if so, it will be with a whole new look.

The actor took the Globe in 2011 for his role as a frail former boxer in The Fighter. But for his 2014 nomination Bale super-sized it, gaining 40 lbs. of flab to play the shady Irving Rosenfeld in American Hustle.

Amy Adams on Kissing Jennifer Lawrence: She Has Very Soft Lips

We already know she can dance (thanks to Silver Linings Playbook) and kick ass (as seen in The Hunger Games). But apparently, there's something else Jennifer Lawrence is good at: kissing.

The Oscar winner's lip-locking abilities got high praise from Amy Adams, her costar in the Golden Globe-nominated film American Hustle. The pair share a kiss in the crime drama, set in the 1970s.

"She does a great job at it," Adams, 39, said of Lawrence, 23, during an interview with Extra. "She has very soft lips."

Guess Who Teased Christian Bale for His American Hustle Weight Gain?

Christian Bale's American Hustle Weight Gain: Guess Who Teased Him?

Originally posted 12/08/2013 01:30PM

Christian Bale, once again, is unrecognizable.

The Oscar winner lost (gulp!) 60 lbs. for 2004's The Machinist, then bulked up and got ripped for Batman Begins before going back to being boney-thin for The Fighter, which netted him an Oscar in 2011 for Best Supporting Actor.

Now, he's gained 43 lbs. to play a '70s con artist in the Abscam-inspired crime drama American Hustle.

To fatten up, "I ate lots of doughnuts, a whole lot of cheeseburgers and whatever I could get my hands on. I literally ate anything that came my way," Bale, 39, told PEOPLE at Friday's Peggy Siegel and OPI screening of the buzzy film in New York City. "I was about 185 and went up to 228. I'm still working it off."
