The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences decided to shelve its plan to introduce a new category of award – for outstanding achievement in popular film. “There has been a wide range of reactions to the introduction of a new award, and we recognize the need for further discussion with our members,” Dawn Hudson, the CEO of the Academy, said in a statement regarding the rethinking.

A sequel to Girls Trip is reportedly in the works, and Tiffany Haddish had better win an Oscar this time


A sequel to <em>Girls Trip</em> is reportedly in the works, and Tiffany Haddish had better win an Oscar this time

Sometimes, a movie is so fun to watch that you feel like you’re part of it. Every time you watch Girls Trip, it’s hard not to imagine yourself as the fifth member of the Flossy Posse. The four best friends inspire us to take our own girls trips and make us so, so thankful for our gal pals.

Girls Trip was a female friendship movie that came along at exactly the right time. The fact that the film was so successful was incredibly important as well. It made history as the first all-black team to hit $ 100,000 million at the box office.

The success of Girls Trip blasted Tiffany Haddish straight into the spotlight. And deservedly so. Though each of the actresses in Girls Trip is hilarious, Haddish was the true scene stealer. After the film did so well, Haddish started popping up everywhere, from hilarious Groupon commercials to an epic episode of SNL. And now? The girls are reportedly back at it.

On Friday, August 17th, Regina Hall was a guest on BuzzFeed News’ AM to DM. And as Entertainment Weekly reports, she said that a Girls Trip sequel is in the works.

Nothing is finalized yet, but it’s all in motion.

“We’re trying to make that happen,” Hall said. “We’re trying to get everything together with the schedule. I think they’re working on something. I don’t know where we’re going. I don’t know where the girls are going, but—we’re going somewhere.”

A Girls Trip sequel can’t happen soon enough. Our abs already hurt from laughing.

Here’s everything you need to know about the star…

Splash News

Who is Keala Settle?

What is The Greatest Showman about and who does Keala play?

The Greatest Showman tells the story of P.T. Barnhum (played by Hugh Jackman) as he launches a bid to start a circus.

Played out as a musical, the film follows the effects of his drive for success on his family, friends and the cast of the circus.

In the film, Keala plays Lettie Lutz – the iconic Bearded Lady of the show and Barnhum’s first recruit.

She also leads the vocals in several of the main cast songs, including the Oscar-Nominated This is Me.

Was James Franco’s Oscar Snub Due to His Sexual-Misconduct Allegations?

Steve Granitz/Getty

Less than two weeks ago, the Los Angeles Times published an investigation in which five women accused James Franco of “inappropriate or sexually exploitative behavior,” leading many to believe that the prolific actor would be the next powerful Hollywood player in the #MeToo movement whose career would fall in atonement for his actions.

Was Franco’s Oscar snub this morning the first punishment?

The Times investigation coincided with the prime of Franco’s campaign for what had seemed to be a sure-thing Best Actor nomination for The Disaster Artist, in which he stars as Tommy Wiseau, the notorious director and star of The Room, widely believed to be the worst film ever made. (In a meta twist, Franco also directs the film.)

Star Wars’ Oscar Isaac Just Said the Sweetest Thing About Princess Leia

Warning: This story contains spoilers for Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

While Carrie Fisher may have passed away, she lives on in Princess Leia, especially thanks to her role in Star Wars: The Last Jedi —and in her protégé, Poe Dameron.

“Poe is in some ways a surrogate son for Leia,” actor Oscar Isaac, who plays the Resistance’s hotshot pilot Poe, tells EW. “But also I think she sees in him the potential for a truly great leader of the Resistance and beyond.”

Poe is helping fill the void in Leia’s life as she mourns the death of Han Solo, who was murdered by their son, Ben Solo (Adam Driver). Ben turned to the Dark Side of the Force, changing his name to Kylo Ren, taking charge of the ominous First Order, and following in the footsteps of his grandfather, Darth Vader.

In The Last Jedi, General-Senator-Scholar-Princess Leia mentors Poe, according to EW, “encouraging him to look beyond the crosshairs in his cockpit.”

“Poe’s arc is one of evolving from a heroic soldier to a seasoned leader, to see beyond the single-mindedness of winning the battle to the larger picture of the future of the galaxy,” Isaac says. “I think Leia knows she won’t be around forever and she, with tough love, wants to push Poe to be more than the badass pilot, to temper his heroic impulses with wisdom and clarity.”

Chrissy Teigen Already Gave Out The Cutest Award Of Oscar Night

In Chrissy Teigen’s mind, the Oscar for cutest baby was no contest. Before heading to the 89th annual Academy Awards, the model and mom decided to have some award show fun on social media.

“And the award for Baby of the Year goes to … baby Luna!” Teigen says in a video posted to Twitter Sunday. We’re guessing the statue in the video is the one Teigen’s husband John Legend won for his song “Glory,” created with Common for the film “Selma.” (Luna’s will probably come in the mail.)

Clearly, this is a major upset for all other babies hoping to snag the win this year, but let’s be honest: Baby Luna put out some outstanding work in the last year.

Ryan Reynolds Named Harvard’s Hasty Pudding Man of the Year, Posts Hilarious Oscar Campaign Video for Deadpool

Ryan Reynolds is not letting his latest accolade distract him from his Oscar hopes.

The Deadpool star was named Man of the Year by Harvard University student theater group the Hasty Pudding Theatricals on Friday, meaning he will be roasted, as per tradition, by the student group on Feb. 3 in Cambridge, Mass.

While the honor, given by the nation’s oldest collegiate theatrical organization, puts Reynolds in a league with previous winners like Chris Pratt, Neil Patrick Harris and Robin Williams, there’s another special club the actor wants to be a part of above all else.

Undeterred by his recent Golden Globe loss, Reynolds took to Twitter on Friday to post a hilarious Oscar campaign video for his film Deadpool. The post, which comes just under a week after Reynolds lost the Golden Globe race for best actor to Ryan Gosling, gives some insight into how difficult it was for him to get his passion project to the big screen.

The video is a rundown of Deadpool by the numbers, explaining that the film required, “600 lbs. of chimichangas, four pairs of a**less chaps … 117 script pages,” and so on. It also mentions Reynolds received “42 rejection letters from Fox,” the studio that ultimately produced the movie, in reference to the 11 years he spent trying to get it made.

Oscar Winners Thank God A Lot In Acceptance Speeches, But Not As Often As You’d Think

Oscar winners always thank God, right?

Wrong.

The stars who win big at the Oscars aren’t looking to heaven during their acceptance speeches — they’re looking at Steven Spielberg.

The renowned American film director is thanked more often during Oscars acceptance speeches than the Good Lord Almighty himself, Vocativ reports.

With the 87th Academy Awards slated to air on Sunday, Vocativ mined through 1,396 acceptance speeches currently archived on Academy’s website to measure who got the most “Thank Yous” from winners.

Spielberg came in at number one, with 42 mentions, followed by Harvey Weinstein, James Cameron, George Lucas, Peter Jackson. God came in at number six, with just 19 mentions.

It should be noted that a number of acceptance speeches from the earliest years of the awards haven’t yet been added to the Academy’s acceptance speech database. As a result, Vocativ’s survey isn’t conclusive.

Still, it seems the dream-come-true moment inspires many winners to give thanks to forces greater than themselves. Here are a few of the celebrities who gave God a thumbs up during their time in the spotlight.

Winner: Haing S. Ngor
Year: 1984 (57th) Academy Awards
Category: Actor in a Supporting Role
Film Title: The Killing Fields
Presenter: Linda Hunt
Date & Venue: March 25, 1985; Dorothy Chandler Pavilion

This unbelievable, but so is my entire life. . . And I thank God Buddah that tonight I’m even here. Thank you very much. Thank you.

Winner: Prince
Year: 1984 (57th) Academy Awards
Category: Music (Original Song Score)
Film Title: Purple Rain
Presenter: Michael Douglas, Kathleen Turner
Date & Venue: March 25, 1985; Dorothy Chandler Pavilion

This is very unbelievable. I could’ve never imagined this in my wildest dreams. And I would like to thank the Academy . . . and most of all, God. Thank you very much.

Winner: To Richard Williams for the animation direction of “Who Framed Roger Rabbit.”
Year: 1988 (61st) Academy Awards
Category: Special Achievement Award
Film Title: Who Framed Roger Rabbit
Presenter: Robin Williams, Charles Fleischer
Date & Venue: March 29, 1989; Shrine Civic Auditorium

Thank you very much, members of the Academy and Carl Bell. I have to thank, first, Steven Spielberg for having the enormous prestige to mid-wife the whole thing and get all those different, competing cartoons in the same movie. Then to Jeffrey Katzenberg, who kept his cool under tremendous duress, and thank God or I wouldn’t be here tonight.

Winner: Tom Hanks
Year: 1993 (66th) Academy Awards
Category: Actor in a Leading Role
Film Title: Philadelphia
Presenter: Emma Thompson
Date & Venue: March 21, 1994; Dorothy Chandler Pavilion

I know that my work in this case is magnified by the fact that the streets of heaven are too crowded with angels. We know their names. They number a thousand for each one of the red ribbons that we wear here tonight. They finally rest in the warm embrace of the gracious creator of us all. A healing embrace that cools their fevers, that clears their skin, and allows their eyes to see the simple, self-evident, common sense truth that is made manifest by the benevolent creator of us all and was written down on paper by wise men, tolerant men, in the city of Philadelphia two hundred years ago. God bless you all. God have mercy on us all. And God bless America.

Winner: Mel Gibson
Year: 1995 (68th) Academy Awards
Category: Directing
Film Title: Braveheart

Date & Venue: March 25, 1996; Dorothy Chandler Pavilion

This is, you know, it fills me with great joy, but I am also filled with a lot of sadness tonight because I’m accepting an award at such a strange time. And, you know, my experiences in making this film made me very aware of the sadness and the dehumanization of people at times of war, and the repercussions of war. And whomever you believe in, if it’s God or Allah, may He watch over you. And let’s pray for a peaceful and swift resolution.

Film Title: Milk
Presenter: Steve Martin, Tina Fey
Date & Venue: February 22, 2009; Kodak Theatre

When I was thirteen years old, my beautiful mother and my father moved me from a conservative Mormon home in San Antonio, Texas, to California, and I heard the story of Harvey Milk. And it gave me hope. It gave me the hope to live my life. It gave me the hope one day I could live my life openly as who I am and that maybe even I could even fall in love and one day get married. I wanna, I wanna thank my mom, who has always loved me for who I am even when there was pressure not to. But most of all, if Harvey had not been taken from us thirty years ago, I think he’d want me to say to all of the gay and lesbian kids out there tonight who have been told that they are less than by their churches or by the government or by their families, that you are beautiful, wonderful creatures of value and that no matter what anyone tells you God does love you, and that very soon, I promise you, you will have equal rights, federally, across this great nation of ours. Thank you. Thank you. And thank you,God, for giving us Harvey Milk.

The first line of the book [The Color Purple] is, “Dear God, I’m fourteen years old…” And I had lived that life and couldn’t imagine that someone was able to put into words what I had already experienced. And so began this journey that I was able to really understand that God’s hand, or power greater than myself, “the forces,” as Sidney Poitier calls them, were engaged in leading my life to a plane and a level that I had not even imagined. But I released myself to those forces, and literally said inside myself, “Thy will be done.”

First off, I want to thank God, ’cause that’s who I look up to. He has graced my life with opportunities that I know are not of my hand or any other human hand.

Oscar Plan to Give All Awards to Beyoncé to Prevent Kanye ProtWests

The Oscar awards committee today announced controversial new plans to give all future awards to singer Beyoncé Knowles in an attempt to stop rapper Kanye West from storming the stage.

The sight of Kanye, producer of such international hits as “Jesus Walks” and “Gold Digger”, helping himself to the podium steps has become a common sight in recent years and has been dubbed ProtWests or ProtWesting by satirists with too much time on their hands.

A spokesperson for the committee told us, “I think it’s become obvious that Kanye knows best; I mean take the Grammys. Awarding the prize to a genial newcomer like Beck who barely has thirty years in the music industry instead of Beyoncé was just unforgivable and, frankly the totally impartial committee should have known better. As should E! News for branding the microphones that they paid for with their own money.”

“Originally we thought that awarding statues to recipients based on a consensus from a large and diverse group of industry professionals was pretty fair, but then Kanye brought to our attention that this just didn’t sit well with him.”

Despite Ms. Knowles, 34, not actually doing anything to qualify for the movie industry’s highest award this year, a source close to Mr. West made it clear that “they shouldn’t let that stop them, or buddy, Kanye will.”

Other organizations said to be considering similar moves are the SAG Awards, The Producers Guild and the Nobel Peace Prize Committee. A spokesperson for the latter told us, “We considered other moves to prevent Kanye protWesting us, such as large fences around the stage with really big spikes, armed guards or just not inviting him to anything with a statue, but we think that in the long run just giving all the awards to Beyoncé will work out better.”

Jared Leto Is Stressed About His Potential Oscar Speech

Despite a torrential downpour and flash flood warnings in L.A. on Friday evening, Jared Leto hit the ground running, in fancy black-and-white shiny shoes with a red sole. The Oscar-favorite spoke to The Huffington Post at LA Confidential’s annual Oscar event, which this year honored Leto, who graces the magazine’s Spring Issue with wide-open eyes and his signature silky long locks.

Dressed like the rock star that he is in all black, Leto laughed when he saw the giant blow-up of his magazine cover. “I’ve never seen my head so big. Only on the inside,” he joked.

Leto first heard the announcement of his “Dallas Buyers Club” Best Supporting Actor nomination at 5 in the morning but didn’t share the news right away. “Oh I didn’t call anybody. Didn’t want to wake anyone up,” he said.

He’s might be a man of few words, but his performance as Rayon in “Dallas Buyers Club” is nothing short of brilliant. And playing a transgender woman has certainly brought a spotlight to the community. “It’s been wonderful and supportive and generous — from the very beginning when I started research and preparation for the role,” Leto told HuffPost.

He described being nominated for the film as “truly mind-blowing” and “a thrill,” but clarified that there’s some anxiety involved. “It’s a great time to stress out about what you’re going to say for 45 seconds,” Leto said, musing about his potential acceptance speech. Luckily, Leto will have more than enough support at the awards Sunday — he’s bringing his mother and brother as his dates. “It’s the whole family. And that’s just a dream. I couldn’t think of a better way to do it.” Leto said.

Staring directly into the actor’s electric blue eyes causes one to consider to a certain theory that Leto does not age (Google images of Leto in 1994 and 2014). Unfortunately, HuffPost could not confirm with the 42-year-old the validity of whether or not he is in fact the real life Dorian Gray. “I don’t know. I have no idea,” said Leto. “But I’m sure happy to be alive.”

There might not be an aging painting of Jared Leto locked away in his house, but based on reputable Oscar predictions, there likely will soon be a little gold man in its place.

“Dallas Buyers Club” is nominated for six Academy Awards including Best Picture, Best Actor for Matthew McConaughey and Best Original Screenplay. This is Leto’s first Academy Award nomination.

Sandra Bullock’s Reaction To An Oscar Nod Is One That All Moms Will Definitely Understand

Being nominated for an Academy Award is, obviously, a huge honor that puts actors and actresses on a whole new level professionally. But, when you’re also a parent, Oscar doesn’t change much.

Sandra Bullock told the New York Times, in reference to her Best Actress nomination for “Gravity”:

“I don’t think it ever stops being an absolute thrill, but I do have an immediate leveler… I still have to get up and make lunch for a little person, and pray — please, dear God — that he eats something I put in his lunchbox today.”

Bullock adopted Louis Bardo Bullock in January, 2010 — just two months before winning her first Oscar for Best Actress in “The Blind Side.” Soon after, she told People about life as a mom: “You wake up, you feed, you burp, you play, you do laundry … I’m still in that stage where I’m just amazed with him and at life.”

All together now. Stars, they really are just like us.
