Liven up your Oscar night with EW's Academy Awards Bingo

How many winners will get played off during tonight’s Oscars ceremony? How many times will we see unnecessary montages, musical numbers, or George Clooney reaction shots? How likely is it that Jennifer Lawrence will win — and make another reference in her acceptance speech that nobody in the theater understands?

There’s no way to know, of course, until this year’s Academy Awards begin at 8:30 p.m. ET. But know this: The minute any of these things happen, you may be on your way to total Bingo dominance — provided you and yours are playing EW’s extra-classy Oscar Bingo game. We’ve provided three distinct boards; simply print and enjoy. (You do remember paper, don’t you?) High-res versions of the cards can be found here, here, and here.

'Les Miserables' is returning to Broadway. Let's dream cast it!

Did you hear the people singing yesterday? To be fair, it was mostly the screams of excited Les Misérables fans when they heard the show was coming back to Broadway, set for a new opening in March 2014. Details right now are scarce – although we do know that the new production will be based on the current West End revival of the piece, which contains slightly different staging and other adjustments.

As for casting, it’s too early in the game for official announcements – which is where the fun comes in. Below, see some dream picks for all the big roles when the show hits Broadway next year. Because this production is obviously happening in part because of renewed interest because of the Oscar-nominated movie, the film cast (and the publicity they would bring) seem obvious choices. But for this (day)dream I dreamed,  let’s assume that the stars of the film are all Les Mis’d out (no matter how much Anne Hathaway may want a Tony), and it is other performers’ moment. See some of our picks below, and then add your own. READ FULL STORY

Michelle Obama hosts 'Beasts of the Southern Wild' Q&A

Beasts of the Southern Wild may be a small movie, but it’s got a big fan in the White House.

On Wednesday, First Lady Michelle Obama spoke about the film to about 80 middle- and high-school students from the District of Columbia and New Orleans in town for a Black History Month workshop.

At the White House, the students got to see the film, and then have a Q&A with director Benh Zeitlin and actors Dwight Henry and nine-year-old Quvenzhane Wallis. The chat was moderated by Michelle Obama, according to The Washington Post.

The First Lady spoke personally about her love of the film: “It’s rare these days to find a movie that can so completely and utterly captivate such a broad audience and that was one of the things that struck me about this movie,” she said. “It managed to be beautiful, joyful and devastatingly honest.” READ FULL STORY

Grammys: J. Lo saves Adele from hydrangea huckster with a quick disco jerk of the thumb

Adele-Grammy-Crasher

Crisis averted! As if oozing Angelina Leg in a stunning Hefty Sack wasn’t heroic enough, Jennifer Lopez ended up saving Adele from a sure-to-be-obnoxious encounter with Grammys crasher Vitalii Seduik — the same Ukranian TV personality who tried to make out with Will Smith on the red carpet of Men in Black III‘s Moscow premiere and gifted Madonna those absolutely loathsome hydrangeas! Seduik somehow got onstage as Adele came up to accept the Grammy for Best Solo Pop Performance, but luckily J. Lo was there to throw him a scathing “Set Fire to This Pain in the Ass” glare and then shoo him away with a quick jerk of her thumb. Behold an international hero at work in the short clip below.

LOL and OMG: The five funniest quotes from Vanity Fair's YOLO oral history

Surprisingly, Vanity Fair’s terrific Oral History of YOLO, is NOT exclusively a bunch of bros yelling “YOLO” before jumping into a coffee table at a frat party (full disclosure: I’ve never been to a frat party).

Using the Lonely Island’s Digital Short as a jumping-off point, the magazine detailed the rise (and death?) of the phrase (word?) that has populated so many hashtagging sprees and been the cause of so many minor injuries.

The biggest revelations from the piece were 1. basically everyone started saying YOLO accidentally 2. it’s still pretty fun to hear academics try to define the zeitgeist using terrible trends. Here are some of our favorite quotes: READ FULL STORY

Jimmy Fallon presents episode 4 of 'Downton Sixbey' -- VIDEO

Two episodes in one week? Why, it’s almost as good as discovering you’re heir to yet another massive fortune.

Fans of Downton Sixbey, Jimmy Fallon’s Downton Abbey spoof, were in for a treat. The third episode ended in a bit of a cliffhanger: Questlove had fallen in love with one of the Downton girls! And last night, viewers learned that Questlove wanted to marry not Lord James’ “loveliest daughter Lady Catherine” or “smoking hot daughter Lady Amber,” but instead, perennial bridesmaid Lady Hedith (Fred Armisen). Because of the tie-in to the real Downton — money troubles! — James wanted to join the two families as soon as possible. (“This family is f—ed up,” Lady Whoopi Goldberg declared.)

Watch below for all the romance of a Questlove/Fred Armisen wedding, and to discover what accused wife murderer Higgins’ true crime was. With apologies to Al Roker, let’s just say the Dowager Countess wouldn’t approve. READ FULL STORY
