Worst Oscar Dresses of All Time

The Oscars are almost upon us. As Hollywood movie industry award shows go this is the high holiday. So it’s easy to get carried away. That’s why it’s important to keep it in proportion. It doesn’t really matter who wins what for some movie most of the viewers either never saw or have long forgotten about. What really matters is who wears what!


John Galliano did get a kind of dishonorable mention last time around. That was when Natalie Portman took time out of her Black Swan acceptance speech to castigate JG for certain drunken comments that he’d carelessly allowed to be recorded while he was living it up on the streets of Paris! If you’ll recall John took some time to explain that Adolph Hilter just might have been a wee little bit misunderstood. Some how his point got lost qand he got charged. convicted and fined $50 000 under France’s hate speech laws.

Former sex kitten Bridget Bardot got herself in similar hot water through her many nuisance letters to the french papers in which she repeatedly questioned why Muslims were allowed to live in France. Eventually the law caught up with her and she had even more opportunity to explain her views in a french court room. Not that BB should be accused of fanning the flames of global unrest by picking on Muslims. For one thing her ideas are probably just something that she picked up off of her National Front hubby. For another she’s used to a certain amount of attention which is harder to get as you get older and start looking like an ice cream Sunday that was left out on the dash board of a car over the course of a hot summer afternoon. BB has shown that an old broad can still turn heads and raise eyebrows, she just has to try harder and learn to be way more inventive over time!


The upshot is that fashion is as important to the event as a lot of prestige films. A really good designer gown can get an actress talked about, even if no one knows what the hell she starred in to get her an Oscar invite (pay attention Katherine Heigl!). ON the other hand wrapping yourself in an eyesore only makes a spectacle of yourself and get’s you in the WTF section of the National Enquirer – regardless of whatever sterling performance you put in that year. So if you don’t want your good wrok overshadowed by a wardrobe fuck up, or if you want you lackluster work overshadowed by a fashion win, you’d better be mindful to dress for success! Now here’s a brief and informative video on fashion and the Oscars!

Halle Berry’s Ex Investigated for Child Endangerment

Beautiful people get pretty ugly

Once upon a time in Hollywood

Once upon a time in an enchanted kingdom called Hollywood a beautiful movie queen met a handsome prince and swept him off his feet. Everyone carried on like the pair were the king and queen of the prom. Then they had a kid together. Then things went sour and they went their separate ways. That’s the part where the storyline diverges from Brangelina.

the couple in question

The couple in question were Halle Berry and Gabriel Aubry. When they split up people were shocked but not too shocked. It’s kind of the way people felt when Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher busted up. Halle and Gabby seemed to be handling the bust up well and even agreed on joint custody. Then Halle got a film job down in South Africa.

where’s King Solomon when you need him?

Halle had to go away for 3 to 6 months and planned to take baby Nahla with her. Now Gabby wasn’t having any of that. So he suggested that Halle leave the tot with him while she clued up her movie making. Halle wasn’t any more pleased about leaving her daughter for 3 to 6 months than he was. So there was a stalemate.

father go farther

Now being mature reasonable people they managed to hit upon an ad hoc arrangement. Halle would take Nahla to South Africa and Gabby would come along for the ride. She’d pay him to be the child’s care giver – kind of like a nanny – and they’d live under the same roof. In the event that living under the same roof became unbearable then Halle would rent a near by villa for Gabby. Nahla could stay there with her father during the day while Halle did her close ups. Perfectly sensible arrangement that only required large sums of money to pull off (It might have been even more reasonable if she’d rented the villa from the start, instead of waiting to see if things became unreasonable)!

this is gonna take a while, and Katherine Heigl, so you know it’s getting nasty

So it seemed like our estranged super couple were working it out. Then some where along the way they fell out again. Just recently stories started surfacing about Halle and Gabby heading off to court for a flat out knock down drag out custody show down! Like I said, this has been building up for awhile.

On Jan 31 2011 – that’s about 1 year ago if you’re following the Halle Gabby timeline – People Mag reported that Halle was headed to court. Her objective was full custody of daughter Nahla. She was so serious that she dropped out of the lead in New Years Eve. That was good news for Katherine Heigl, who got to replace her. Halle was determined because in the words of her reps and lawyers –

“Halle has serious concerns for her daughter’s well-being while in the care of her father for any extended period of time and is prepared to take all necessary steps to protect her. She has attempted to resolve these custody issues amicably with her daughter’s father, Gabriel Aubry, directly, but given his lack of cooperation, Halle has no choice but to seek swift judicial intervention. Halle has always made the needs and safety of her daughter her first priority and, both while Halle and Gabriel were a couple and since their break-up, Halle has only acted in her daughter’s best interest.”

the cruelest month & Kim Kardashian included!

Now to you or I that might sound like the kind of half baked statement that comes out of the usual PR cookie cutter. However it preceded and interesting back and forth between Halle & Gabby. At 1st Gabby, by way of People Mag, claimed that the allegations were untrue & irresponsible. He claimed that he was being maigned, and tat he didn’t wanted to be dragged into some dispute over one of Halle’s films. Then D Listed & TMZ got in on the act. Basically the story that came out through those outlets was that Halle had issues. While she was dating Olivier Martinez, to whom she is now engaged, Aubry claimed that she was not over him. She was possessive & objected to him dating other people, and would even phone him up in a rage. Halle responded that Gabby was crazy and jealous. Needless to say Gabby was disappointed by Halle’s response. Feb 2011 was a rough month for them. There was even a Kim Kardashian angle. Here’s brief recap:

From People: Team Berry says that Halle got mad when Gabriel started dating amateur porn star and role model to our youth Kim Kardashian, because she didn’t want a reality star in her daughter’s life. Meaning Halle was afraid that the cameras that constantly follow Kim would catch her daughter and she’d end up on TV. Yes, because Nahla can sign her own releases. However, Team Aubry says that Nahla never laid eyes on the twin warthogs clinging to Kim’s ass.
1 point for Team Aubry

From TMZ: One of Gabriel’s ex-girlfriends has put a white cone on his head by saying that he’s bi-racist and always used racial slurs against black people. Gabriel’s ex, who dated him for 2 years, says he never beat her ass, but he treated women like shit.
2 points for Team Berry

From TMZ: Team Berry is going hard on this one. Sources close to Halle have added possible “child abuse allegations” to Gabriel’s rap sheet by saying that Nahla always hysterically cries when he picks her up for visits. Halle constantly has a “something in the milk ain’t clean” moment whenever she sees Nahla with Gabriel. Nahla seems scared of her own father and Halle thinks something wrong is going down. The child touching and/or child whoopin’ seed has been planted.

From Radar: Because this whole disaster is the second coming of OctoSana & Mad Mel, Team Gabriel says he has recorded tapes of Halle RAGING at him in her crazy bitch voice. Team Gabriel says that since he’s an upstanding moral man of integrity (served on a bed of lukewarm sarcasm noodles), he’s not going to release the tapes to the media. Gabriel is saving them just in case shit gets really real REAL in their custody fight.
1 point for Team Aubry

From Radar: So much for that “no leaking” rule. Radar magically got a hold of an e-mail Halle allegedly sent to Gabriel during one of her jealous meltdowns. Halle’s e-mail reads, “You were only good for one thing…Thanks for the donation.” Hey, that’s the same thank you note I get in the mail whenever I put a dollar in the tithing basket at my mom’s Catholic church. Team Gabriel also adds that he did call Halle a “fucking bitch” when she “provoked” him, but he’s never thrown a racial slur at her. In fact, Team Gabriel swears that he kept calm and quiet whenever she screamed at him on the phone.

history repeats it’s self in current events ‘here we go again’ agony

Luckily they got through Feb and the rest of the year. There were a few minor court skirmishes but things carried on as if they were normal. That brings us to current events. 3 year old Nahla was visiting her father when things took an odd turn. Seems Nahla didn’t want to go to school that day and Aubry let her off the hook. When nanny Alliance Kamdem showed up she wanted to know what the deal was and things got heated. Nanny claims that Aubry pushed, while she was holding Nahla. So naturally that lead to child endangerment charges.

Nanny Alliance

It lead Halle, with her nanny, back to court. She’s asked a judge for a restraining order. The order is to prohibit Aubry from any contact with Nanny Kamden until the child endangerment issue is resolved. That could be tough to resolve since nanny Kamden is making allegations about Aubry yelling and screaming and Nahla, which causes her to cower in fear. Kamden also claims Aubry makes young Nahla sit in a corner in his condo. To that end the L.A. County Dept. of Children and Family Services is also conducting a child endangerment investigation. Kamden claims she fears retaliation from Aubry.

“insufficient and speculative” – just like a blog!

As of now the restraining order is out. The judge called the petition “insufficient and speculative.” One further development, Kamden has quit her hi profile nanny job with Berry.
