Plenty of Oscar snubs yesterday, but perhaps most egregious is the Academy’s woefully unenlightened cold shoulder toward Best Supporting Actor Lumière. Don’t they realize that the farther they walk away from his eternal flame, the less they will be able to see? What’s it like, Oscar voters, to live inside a great big gilded castle of DARKNESS?

Tonight at 10 p.m., enjoy an all-new episode of The Soup. No, seriously, enjoy it. Because after tonight, E!’s beloved TV clip show moves to Wednesday nights.
This is not okay. I know here at PopWatch, we take television way too seriously. And I know that what I’m about to say automatically reserves me a spot in the Saddest People On Earth Club. But it was always nice to know that if I couldn’t find anyone to hang out with on Friday nights, I could always hang out with Joel McHale. READ FULL STORY
I was expecting the worst heading into the theaters to see Adam Sandler’s latest comedy, Jack and Jill. With its half-baked cross-dressing premise and trailer that seemed like an outtake from the opening of Tropic Thunder, Jack and Jill appeared to be a big-screen assault on all moviegoers’ senses, a film that would even drive a Happy Gilmore-era Sandler to clock his future self right in the kisser. In fact, stepping into my 7:30 p.m. screening, I wasn’t counting out the possibility that Jack and Jill was a giant prank, that the theater lights would go down and a screen would show up laughing at moviegoers, “You actually thought this movie existed?!”
But Jack and Jill actually does exist. And, as I sat watching the 90-minute film, I realized Jack and Jill wasn’t bad. It was terrible. READ FULL STORY
There are so many reasons not to buy a replica of one of Kim Kardashian’s wedding dresses. First off, why in heaven’s name would you want to be compared to Kim Kardashian? Secondly, and most obviously, the dresses were as horrible as Kate Middleton’s was classy. But, apparently, there’s a third reason to avoid wearing a mass-market version of the Vera Wang dresses, which may still be sold at David’s Bridal: They’re cursed. READ FULL STORY
Back in 2009, the Internet decided former reality show darling Jessica Simpson would be its target. Spotting an unflattering photo of the singer wearing a pair of ill-fitting jeans, Internet surfers and blogs unleashed upon Simpson, deriding her for supposedly daring to gain a smidge of weight. And though the singer still struggles with the taunts — and even used them as inspiration for her short-lived Vh1 series examining appearance, The Price of Beauty — our impatient, tabloid-hungry nation has shifted its focus. Now, the Internet is spending its time slamming pop star and The Voice mentor Christina Aguilera.
The body inspection of Aguilera is nothing new — in the early 2000s, chatter spread about a possible breast enhancement surgery. But now, eyes have moved to her thighs, with bloggers calling her every synonym for “fat,” even slapping her with nicknames comparing her to Jersey Shore‘s Snooki. (Who, by the way, looks perfectly fine too, despite some unwise clothing choices.) But the labels don’t stop on the Web. On Friday’s Fashion Police, Kelly Osbourne unloaded on the singer after some harsh photos from the Michael Jackson Tribute Concert began making the rounds. Said Osbourne, “She called me fat for years. I was never that fat.” READ FULL STORY
Prepare yourselves: Next week on the fourth hour of Today, Khloe Kardashian will co-host with Hoda Kotb on Funday, Bruce Jenner on Boozeday, Kris Jenner on Winesday, Kourtney Kardashian on Thirstday, and Kim Kardashian on Dryday. But who will join me when I marathon the shows on KillMyselfday?
You gotta hand it to the Kardashians. If they’re not appearing in the news, they’ll literally make themselves appear on the news. First person to convince me there’s still hope for this world wins permission to destroy my television on Oct. 10.
Kim Kardashian — recently named 2011’s Most Annoying Celebrity — is definitely a doll, right?

Has 'Millionaire Matchmaker' Patti Stanger reached her tipping point with her comments about gay men?
Anyone who’s ever seen an episode of The Millionaire Matchmaker knows self-proclaimed love guru Patti Stanger is an acquired taste akin to wasabi peas. She comes on strong and leaves your insides feelings raw. But Stanger’s frank, loud-mouthed, know-it-all persona has become her signature, the reason people watch her show in the first place. Who doesn’t want to see a paunchy, balding, middle-aged entrepreneur get put in his place for insisting that he will settle for nothing less than a Perfect 10? This past Sunday, however, Stanger crossed a line. Dishing out dating advice on Bravos’ Watch What Happens Live, she effectively characterized all gays as “queeny,” oral-sex-obsessed Grindr disciples incapable of monogamy, and even laughed in beloved host Andy Cohen’s face when he dared disagree with her perspective. Despite apologizing late yesterday, Stanger is still facing serious backlash. Is it possible she has gone from someone we love to hate to someone we just hate? READ FULL STORY
