Jennifer Lawrence jokingly tries to steal Oscar from Lupita Nyong'o -- PHOTO

Jennifer Lawrence can’t stop. Jennifer Lawrence won’t stop. And I, for one, wouldn’t want her to.

At last year’s Oscars, Lawrence took home the award for Best Actress, but only after she tripped her way up the stairs. And after she had the award in hand? She flipped off the entire press room. This year, she did not get a chance to trip up the stairs as she lost the Best Supporting Actress race to Twelve years A Slave‘s Lupita Nyong’o. However, J Law did not disappoint. She made sure to get her clumsiness out of the way early when she fell on the red carpet — stupid traffic cones! — and then, after she lost the Oscar race, she tried to get her hands on Nyong’o’s Oscar. Of course, she was joking, and the whole thing only makes us love her more.

The real question is, which fake fight was the night’s best — Lawrence’s struggle with Nyong’o, OR Kelly Osbourne “choking” Lady Gaga? (Osbourne and Gaga have apparently decided to bury the hatchet, after feuding for several years.) You decide:

John Travolta's favorite actress, Adela Dazeem, has joined Twitter

The only thing worse than John Travolta’s hair at the Oscars was John Travolta’s horrible mispronunciation of Idina Menzel’s name. When Travolta took the stage to introduce Menzel’s performance of the Oscar-nominated song, “Let It Go,” from her movie Frozen, he asked the audience to “please welcome the wickedly talented, one and only, Adela Dazeem.” At least, that’s what we thought he said; it’s pretty tough to understand that quick mumble.

Jimmy Fallon takes on office games with LeBron James -- VIDEO

Is this what we have to look forward to in Space Jam 2?

Probably not. Still, Jimmy Fallon added another notch to his viral video belt on Thursday’s Tonight Show when he joined guest LeBron James for “Wastepaper Basketball” — a perfectly ’80s ode to the wonderful office time waster, set to the music of Kurtis Blow.

The intentionally dorky video deserves special mention for rhyming “super fly” with “IT guy,” as well as for the uber-dated graphics interspersed with the duo shooting hoops (a.k.a throwing paper into a trash can). Somewhere, the Jim Halperts of the world are getting inspired.

Do tattoos make celebs cooler? This artist thinks so, and uses Photoshop to prove it

Dazed-and-Confused.jpg

With popular movies and shows like Divergent and Star-Crossed featuring characters with prominent tattoos, it begs the question: Does the mere presence of a tattoo make a character (or celeb) cooler? Well, if you asked Seattle-based artist Cheyenne Randall, the answer would probably be yes.

In fact, Randall has an entire Tumblr, Shopped Tattoos, dedicated to taking iconic images of celebs, movie characters and the like, and using Photoshop to add tattoos to their bodies. We’re talking everyone from Saved by the Bell‘s A.C. Slater to Audrey Hepburn.

Watch how Randall’s work unfolds by comparing the main image of Matthew McConaughey from Dazed and Confused above and Randall’s photoshopped photo below: READ FULL STORY

'Scandal' Behind the Scenes: Josh Malina introduces fans to 'Jazzy Snaps' -- VIDEO

Josh Cam, like Scandal, is back!

After a winter break that left us all having to cope without Pope, ABC’s crowned king of OMG TV is back. And to celebrate, we present you an all-new edition of EW’s ongoing behind-the-scenes video series in which cast member Josh Malina gives us a sneak peek at the action on set.

In this week’s edition, Malina introduces us to Mitchell Haddad, the man behind Scandal‘s signature “jazzy snaps.” (You’ll know exactly what we’re talking about when you click below.) READ FULL STORY

'Toy Story' theory: Are Andy's mother and Emily the same person?

Jon Negroni is about to expand your Toy Story-lovin’ minds with one simple question: Is Andy’s mom Emily?

For a little background, Emily was Jessie’s previous owner that we only briefly saw in flashbacks. When she grew up, Emily gave the toy away, which is when Jessie went to storage. But thanks to a few specific clues, it seems highly possible that Jessie magically found her way into the hands of Emily’s son years later.

The first clue is Andy’s hat. It doesn’t quite match Woody’s, and when you watch the flashback with Jessie and Emily, you see a nearly identical hat on Emily’s bed. And thanks to the size of Emily’s donation box, it’s clear that the young Emily didn’t give away the hat when she got rid of Jessie. Therefore, did Emily keep the hat and eventually pass it on to her son? READ FULL STORY

'Ghostbusters' firehouse, President Obama pay tribute to Harold Ramis

When you need a fitting tribute to Harold Ramis, who you gonna call? Try the Hook & Ladder 8 Firehouse in New York City.

After word broke yesterday that Ramis had passed away at the age of 69, the firehouse — home base of the Ghostbusters themselves — hung up a replica of the film’s iconic sign. In addition to co-starring as Dr. Egon Spengler, Ramis also co-wrote the 1984 classic and its 1989 sequel.

But it wasn’t just the sign that paid tribute to Ramis’s work. Elsewhere, many on Twitter documented a growing memorial outside the building that contained flowers, candles, and — of course — packages of Twinkies.

Jimmy Fallon introduces The Beatles to social media (and selfie Sunday!) -- VIDEO

There are two things we know for sure in this world: We’re in the golden age of social media, and Beatlemania was the height of rabid fandom. So can you imagine if John, Paul, Ringo, and George had participated in #selfiesunday?!

Jimmy Fallon can. On The Tonight Show, Fallon recruited Late Night bandleader Fred Armisen to help him show what 1964 would’ve looked like if Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and even Vine had existed.

In his sketch, we travel back to the band’s first performance on The Ed Sullivan Show, just after they finish singing “I Want to Hold Your Hand.” Paul immediately thanks the crowd… and asks everyone to like the band on Facebook. If you want to see more of their bowl cuts, they’re also on Instagram — THE_BEATLES1 — but you’ll have to ignore all the photos of Ringo’s brunch. (Ringo jokes: still funny!) More importantly, be sure to catch their live-tweet of the MTV Video Music Awards.

The best part of all of this? The band’s Twitter handle: @THEREALBEATLESUK. If this is 1964, what jerk stole @TheBeatles?!

'How I Met Your Mother' recap: Never again

Ten hours before Robin and Barney were set to get hitched, the gang found themselves making vows of a different kind — to never drink to the point of Hangover Hell ever again.

The declarations were brought on by the aftermath of Barney’s drinking bender that, as we saw in the last new episode of How I Met Your Mother, left him befriending lost bros while wandering the streets.

In this week’s episode, Barney’s adventures in drunkenness were very much over, and what was left was a pile of useless suit-covered flesh. Any other day, this wouldn’t have been too much of an issue, but as I mentioned, we have now arrived at Barney and Robin’s actual wedding day. There were things to do. Specifically, Barney and Robin were set to take their wedding pictures, but since he couldn’t hold himself upright, that was going to be tricky to pull off. Again, this would usually not be a problem because Robin’s a cool bride, but in this case, Robin father was paying for everything and his reaction should Barney show up in a less-than-desirable condition was going to be a big problem.

Local reporter turns 'Frozen' song into traffic warning -- VIDEO

WEATHERMAN-FROZEN.jpg

Since most of the country is still experiencing Frozen-like conditions, WKRC traffic reporter Bob Herzog from Cincinnati took out his frustrations over commuters not taking his advice to just stay home during the dangerous and icy conditions by channeling Queen Elsa and changing the lyrics of “Let It Go” to “Just Don’t Go.” Like many, Herzog has taken his daughter to see the Oscar-nominated Frozen multiple times in movie theaters and seems very comfortable letting it all go.
