Did the “SNL” writers leave the Golden Globes winner and Oscar nominee Jennifer Lawrence hanging in the wind last night during her monologue? It was no Oscar-worthy performance. Stand-up takes another skill set and J. Law came across as a little stilted and high-school speechy, but also genuine and game.Read More »from Oscar-nominee Jennifer Lawrence stumbles on ‘SNL’

“Argo,” “Life of Pi,” “The Hobbit,” “Lincoln,” and “Skyfall” headline this year's Golden Reel nominations, scoring multiple nods each.

Sound being one of the most important (and overlooked) aspects of cinema, it's always a good idea to pay attention to what the experts say about their own field. That they choose to recognize “Beasts of the Southern Wild,” “Moonrise Kingdom,” and especially “Silver Linings Playbook” is interesting, as none of these, however essential sound is in all three are the kind of movies that get nominated for sound Oscars.
The kind of movies that do get nominated for sound Oscars are movies that get multiple nominations, like “Django Unchained” and “Zero Dark Thirty.”

Big-name designers spend millions on ad campaigns — but it turns out they can pay an additional price to make sure their styles are seen on A-list celebrities for events like the Oscars and Grammys. The fees for actresses like Jennifer Lawrence and Anne Hathaway to wear a fabulous gown or diamond jewelry can be as high as $750,000. Some call it the industry's "dirty little secret" because it's "really aggressive" and "there are hundreds of thousands of dollars spent." But other top stylists say there is nothing wrong with the practice.

"Of course it happens. I'm an advocate for it," says stylist Jessica Paster, who has worked with award show favorites including Cate Blanchett and Dakota Fanning, and says it is similar to advertising for a company. "If a celebrity wants to endorse a certain line, why shouldn't they? If they love the line, why not?"

When Jennifer Lawrence won her Best Actress Golden Globe for "Silver Linings Playbook" Sunday night, her typically candid acceptance contained the statement "I beat Meryl!" Many interpreted this as a slight against Meryl Streep, who was also nominated in the category but not present at the ceremony.
