We Predict This Year's Oscar Meme & Look Back at Past Meme-orable Moments

Originally posted 02/27/2014 08:30AM

If you were looking for information that could actually help you win your Oscars pool, this isn't the place. (Here, this will get you started.)

Sure, we're anxious to see who will come out on top in the battle of Lupita Nyong'o vs. Jennifer Lawrence (or, as well call it, Most Charming Category Ever). We're just as curious to see which film will take home Best Picture honors. But, more importantly, which meme will win the night?

It's already been a hairy, heel-tossing and sing-songy awards show season that's produced no shortage of meme-orable moments.

Borat star Sacha Baron Cohen took the A-list audience at Saturday's Brittania awards through a variety of emotions when he took the stage at the Beverly Hilton to accept the Charlie Chaplin award.

There to present him with his award from BAFTA-LA was a wheelchair-bound woman identified as 87-year-old Grace Collington, Charlie Chaplin's oldest living co-star. The crowd applauded warmly as she presented the actor with one of the silent film legend's canes. And then they laughed as Cohen imitated Chaplin's funny walk.

But seconds later there were gasps of horror as he tripped and knocked the elderly actress off the stage and onto the ground.

Following a Sunday night screening of Les Miserables, the cast and crew dined at Porter House New York.

Hugh Jackman, Anne Hathaway, Amanda Seyfried, Eddie Redmayne, Russell Crowe and Sacha Baron Cohen were all on hand to celebrate the film.

Anna Wintour, Michael Kors, Joan Collins and Tony Danza were also there to enjoy passed items from Chef Michael Lomonaco including roasted sliced filet mignon with cabernet and shallot sauce, porcini mushroom ravioli with white truffle cream and bite-sized desserts including New York state apple pie, cream puffs and mini ice cream sandwiches.

But the most delicious part of the evening was when Jackman – accompanied by a pianist – serenaded Seyfried with "Happy Birthday" while she stood on top of the grand piano bench in the center of the dining room.

Isla Fisher's Stay-Fit Secrets: Breastfeeding and Spanx

Originally posted 11/06/2012 05:00PM

As a mom to two little ones, daughters Olive, 5, and Elula, 2, Isla Fisher has her hands full. Lucky for her, staying fit and beautiful – job requirements for the Bachelorette star – isn't a challenge.

"Breastfeeding – that's my big slimming secret!" Fisher, 36, says in the winter issue of Women's Health U.K., on stands Wednesday and available digitally. "That and Spanx. Anytime anyone compliments me on my figure, I'm wearing my Spanx undies."

Fisher, who shares parenting duties with husband Sacha Baron Cohen, says she does watch what she eats but adds, "I've been blessed in that I never had any body issues during pregnancy. I loved being able to eat whatever I wanted and the whole experience of giving life. And I never worried about losing the weight afterwards, because breastfeeding burns all the calories up so fast."

Saddle Up! The Dictator Rides Into Cannes on a Camel | Sacha Baron Cohen

The Dictator Rides Into Cannes on a Camel

Originally posted 05/16/2012 02:45PM

Sacha Baron Cohen has brought an entourage of beautiful women to many of his promotional appearances for The Dictator, but his date for the Cannes Film Festival might be his most mesmerizing yet.

Before making his way down the Croisette promenade Wednesday, Cohen, in character as Admiral General Aladeen, comically mounted a camel named Osama to mark his entrance.

The actor and his ride attended a photo call for the comedy, which hits theaters today, then later went to relax with a stop at a nearby cafe and some browsing at a local Ralph Lauren store.

Three Reasons to See The Dictator

The Dictator: Why It's Worth Seeing

Originally posted 05/16/2012 01:45PM

There's nothing like low expectations to take a movie from, "Oh, this is going to be bad," to, "Whoa! That was not bad!"

Without the everyday people for Sacha Baron Cohen to interact with in his new movie The Dictator – plus that lackluster preview – I was fully prepared to write a review about why Cohen had been better as his previous alter-egos Borat and Brüno.

Boy, was I wrong.

There is still something missing without the unintentionally funny folks who interact with Cohen in character as part of a ruse – a staple of his earlier films. But Cohen's Dictator, full name: General Admiral Haffaz Aladeen, exists on the big screen only, surrounded by other (very funny) actors.

Cannes Film Festival Welcomes a Slew of Celebrities

Sacha Baron Cohen kicked off the tradition of Cannes publicity stunts Wednesday when he appeared as his latest alter ego to promote his new comedy, The Dictator. Cohen arrived atop his camel, Osama, bringing the iconic Croisette promenade to a standstill in the process.

Four-legged arrivals aside, this year's Cannes Film Festival promises to be one of the most star-studded in years with some of Hollywood's biggest names scheduled to appear. Bruce Willis and Bill Murray were also photographed Wednesday on the red carpet for Wes Anderson's Moonrise Kingdom, which opens the festival.

Others on the list of expected VIP attendees: The reigning king and queen of Cannes, Angelina Jolie and fiancé Brad Pitt (his new crime drama, Killing Them Softly premieres at the festival), though they may have some competition in the supercouple category this year.

Ryan Seacrest: I Didn't Know What Sacha Baron Cohen Had Planned

Ryan Seacrest: I Didn't Know What Sacha Baron Cohen Had Planned

Originally posted 02/27/2012 11:20AM

It was the question of the night on the Oscars red carpet: Did Ryan Seacrest have any idea what was coming when he interviewed Sacha Baron Cohen's alter-ego, The Dictator?

"I was surprised, but not surprised," Seacrest said during his radio show Monday morning. And while he wasn't expecting the interview to be without drama or incident, "I definitely did not know he was going to do that."

"That," of course, would be The Dictator dumping the contents of an urn – that supposedly contained the ashes of the late North Korean leader Kim Jong-il – all over the tuxedo-clad E! host.

After agreeing to do the interview, "in the back of my head I'm thinking, this guy isn't coming as The Dictator to not do something. To what extent, I don't know." But as their chat progressed, Seacrest began to feel a sense of unease.

Sacha Baron Cohen's Dictator Dumps Ashes on Ryan Seacrest

Well, that's one way to turn heads on the red carpet.

When Sacha Baron Cohen made his much-anticipated arrival on the red carpet Sunday night outside Los Angeles's Hollywood and Highland Center for the 84th annual Academy Awards, the Dictator star carried an unexpected accessory: a prop urn filled, tongue-in-cheek, with what he said were the ashes of late North Korean leader Kim Jong-il, who died last December.

Always up for antics, Cohen, fully costumed in a militia coat as Admiral General Aladeen, dumped the urn on E! host Ryan Seacrest, who later described the powder inside as pancake batter.
