Get Ready For The Oscars!

January 11, 2016

Now that the Golden Globes are over it’s on to the Oscars! Guillermo (ge-air-mo) del Toro, John Krasinski and Ang Lee will join Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences president Cheryl Boone Isaacs to announce the 88th Academy Awards nominations Thursday! All 24 Oscar categories will be announced at a special two-part live news conference. The 88th Oscars will be held February 28th at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood and will be televised live by ABC!
How does Tom Brady live? He confirmed a ridiculous-sounding rumor that his chef started earlier this month that he doesn’t touch caffeine. According to Tom Brady, he has never had a cup of coffee! He said, “I never had any coffee or anything like that. I just never tried it.” If you missed the story, Tom Brady also doesn’t eat tomatoes, sugar, soda and cereal. How does he live? More importantly, how does he live without Starbucks?!
Everyone is still talking about Sean Penn and how he interviewed El Chapo months ago. Let’s be honest, it’s odd! Well, he has no regrets! Sean Penn told the Associated Press that he's "got nothin' to hide" from Mexican officials when he was asked about surveillance photos that surfaced in Mexico. Sean Penn has said he took precautions, including using burner mobile phones to make sure that the feds weren't tracking him before the interview. Ok then!
They want an even BIGGER family! The word on the street is that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are secretly adopting a seventh child! Angelina Jolie has taken a baby boy from Cambodia under her wing and has fallen in love with him! It was all Angelina Jolie’s idea and she made a spur of the moment decision to throw the idea out there. Hey, Brad Pitt has always said that he wants a big enough family to have a soccer team! He definitely has that now! If it’s true, good for them and congratulations!
Do we have a new couple alert? After the Golden Globes, Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom were spotted hanging out together at several after parties and they were flirting all night with each other! Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom spent a majority of the evening talking in the VIP section. They were both smiling and laughing and then he took her phone and started typing something in it. It could have been a “can I have your number situation!” I thought Katy Perry was dating John Mayer! I can’t keep up!
Get excited little monsters! It’s no secret that Lady Gaga has been taking a break from music to work on her acting. Well she has just announced that she’ll be releasing a new album this year! Those are all the details we are going to get for now though. Lady Gaga said, “I am putting out an album this year. I won’t tell you when, but it is coming out this year.” This will be Lady Gaga’s first album since her 2014 collaboration with Tony Bennett, Cheek to Cheek. It’s long overdue!
Is Queen B pregnant? That’s what everyone is thinking because Beyonce looked like she was hiding something underneath her jacket when she was leaving dinner over the weekend with her husband Jay Z. It was a pretty big jacket! They did go to some Golden Globe parties after dinner but no one saw if Beyonce was drinking or not. I guess we’ll find out at the Super Bowl!
