At the 80th annual Academy Awards last night, there were a few upsets: Marion Cotillard (La Vie En Rose) was named Best Actress, taking the honor from the heavily favored Julie Christie (Away From Her); similarly, Tilda Swinton (Michael Clayton) took home Best Supporting Actress, despite conventional wisdom holding that the award belonged to Amy Ryan (Gone Baby Gone). Kudos to Swinton, it must be said, for managing to reference George Clooney’s hugely embarrassing, be-nippled turn as Batman in her acceptance speech.
Elsewhere, as expected, the Coen brothers took home Best Picture, Best Director and Best Adapted Screenplay for No Country For Old Men. Daniel Day-Lewis won Best Actor for his portrayal of Daniel Plainview in There Will Be Blood. Javier Bardem took Best Supporting Actor for his role as Anton Chigurh in No Country For Old Men. Overnight success-story Diablo Cody won Best Original Screenplay for Juno. And Daily Show host Jon Stewart kept the evening’s proceedings running smoothly, gently cracking wise at the audience’s expense.
There were very few stand-out moments, but our favorite had to be Stewart’s dissection of Democratic Party presidential candidate Barack Hussein Obama’s name (Hussein recalling Saddam Hussein; Obama recalling Osama). When he referenced the ill-fated 1944 presidential campaign of Gaydolph Titler, we laughed. A lot.
Jimmy Kimmel has finally sought revenge on girlfriend Sarah Silverman, after she announced via video that she was f*cking Matt Damon (with the help of none other than her Bourne Identity-starring lover). Jimmy’s got a new video too, and well, you’ll have to watch it to see which hunky actor he’s f*cking. Let’s just say his name could rhyme with Zen Zaffleck, but you didn’t hear it from us. The vid is jam-packed with celebrity cameos – if you don’t want to try to name them all yourself, here’s who we spotted: Brad Pitt, Harrison Ford, Cameron Diaz, Joan Jett, Macy Gray, Robin Williams, Don Cheadle, Pete Wentz, Perry Farrell, Benji and Joel Madden, Lance Bass, Huey Lewis, Josh Groban, McLovin from Superbad, Christina Applegate, Rebecca Romijn, Dominic Monaghan, and Meatloaf.
Celebrities love to come out for a good cause – especially one that involves f*cking Ben Affleck.
Saturday Night Live is finally back after a months-long break due to the writers’ strike, and holy crap, did they deliver. Host Tina Fey and the cast (including new member Casey Wilson) had us laughing for the full 90 minutes (Annuale? Oh hell yes) but the highlight for us at the VH1 Blog was this amazing Rock of Love parody featuring Amber, the girl with one leg. Check it out above – think it bears any resemblance to the real thing?

VH1’s newest show features Lance Krall as a dimwitted radio host who has some infuriating opinions and isn’t shy about expressing them. He also has a weekly blog here where he discusses his innermost thoughts. In this episode, Lance discusses his dream jobs — what he’d be doing if he wasn’t a radio DJ. These include sky-writing and becoming a clam-chowder-soup judge. So you know, stay away from clam chowder.

Flavor of Love World
MySpace has nothing on FlavorofLoveWorld.com! The site allows fans to rant about cast members, predict who’ll be eliminated next — and, um, upload their hotness in the form of naughty pics and vids. Maybe we’re showing off, but VH1 has the sexiest users on the Internet and we are proving it by highlighting three Flavor of Love World users every day. Prepare to blush.
