Chris Rock To Host The 2015 Oscars? Comedian 'In Talks' To Helm
After a ten year absence from the Oscars stage, Chris Rock is poised to helm Hollywood's Biggest Night, but is the Academy ready for him?

According to a report by Variety, the actor and comedian is in talks to host the 88th Annual show.

Rock last hosted the event in 2005.

People reported that Rock may have a better shot than most due to his connections from his hit series "Everybody Hates Chris."

Reginald Hudlin, who directed the pilot of Rock's comedy, is now co-producing the Oscars.

On Sept. 1, the Academy named Hudlin and David Hill as producers of the 2016 ceremony.

Sean Penn 'Surprised At Stupidity' After Oscar Green Card Joke,
Sean Penn has finally spoken openly about the green card remark he made at the 87th annual Academy Awards while on a promotional tour for his new film "The Gunman."

Penn remarked he has "absolutely no apologies" for his comment.

While presenting the Best Picture Award at the ceremony, Penn deadpanned upon opening the envelope to announce the winner, "Who gave this son of a bitch his green card?" before announcing the winner as "Birdman."

"Birdman's" director Alejandro Iñárritu was born in Mexico and the comment left many to wonder if the joke was made in poor taste by Penn.

Lupita Nyong's 150K Oscar Dress Covered With 6,000 Pearls Stolen!

Lupita Nyong's $150,000 Oscar Dress Covered With 6,000 Pearls St
Lupita Nyong turned heads with her sexy Calvin Klein gown at last Sunday's Academy Awards, but now it seems the pearl-covered outfit attracted the wrong kind of attention.

TMZ first reported that last year's Best Supporting Actress had her dress stolen right out of her hotel room. Law enforcement stated that the gown, valued at $150,000, was taken out of Nyong's room at The London West Hollywood between 8 a.m. and 9 p.m. Tuesday while she was elsewhere.

It's unclear if someone broke into the room specifically to steal the dress, but a gown covered in 6,000 white Akoya pearls would likely ...

Giuliana Rancic Apologizes (For Real This Time)

Giuliana Rancic Apologizes To Zendaya, For Real This Time (Watch
Giuliana Rancic already apologized once for insinuating that Disney star Zendaya "smells like pachouli oil or weed. Maybe weed."

But it wasn't that great of an apology- or an apology at all, really. Once the backlash hit, Rancic sent a quick apology Tweet to Zendaya, saying:

"I'm sorry I offended you and others. I was referring to a bohemian chic look. Had NOTHING to do with race and NEVER would!!!"

But "I'm sorry I offended you" is a little backhanded, so now Rancic's making a full, impassioned plea for mercy.

On camera at E!, Rancic said she was "so, so sincerely sorry" for the statem...

Joan Rivers Snubbed By The Oscars, Left Out Of Tribute To Stars Lost In 2014

Joan and Melissa Rivers
Joan Rivers may not have been in very many movies, but when it comes to the Oscars she's been one of the biggest authorities on red carpet fashion, so it only made sense for the biggest movie awards ceremony to pay tribute to the late comedian during its 'In Memoriam' segment.

Wait, what? She wasn't in the tribute?

Sadly, Rivers, who passed away on September 4, 2014, after a botched outpatient procedure at a New York City clinic, was skipped over during the tribute to the dozens of movie stars, filmmakers, editors, casting directors, et al, who passed away in 2014.

Sure, her biggest film...

The Real Reasons Why Eddie Redmayne Won An Oscar For Best Actor
Eddie Redmayne seemed to walk away with the 2015 Oscar for Best Actor in a Motion Picture for his stellar performance as Stephen Hawking in "The Theory of Everything."

Still, Redmayne was up against some stiff competition in Michael Keaton ("Birdman"), Steve Carell ("Foxcatcher"), Bradley Cooper ("American Sniper") and Benedict Cumberbatch ("The Imitation Game"). So what were the key reasons why he won?

He Played A Real Person, Not A Character

Most Oscar winners who take home the gold in this category play a version of a real-life story. Just last year, Matthew McConaughey won for his po...

Rita Ora, Irina Shayk, Gigi Hadid and Heidi Klum all bared plenty of skin at the Vanity Fair Oscars afterparty on Sunday night, flashing lots of flesh in sheer, see-through dresses for the magazine's 20th annual event.

All four star appeared to go commando at the event, causing quite a stir as they posed for photos before hitting the party.

Supermodel Irina, who appears topless in a sizzling spread in this year's Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, wore an Atelier Versace gown, which was more like a mesh bodysuit with half a dress sewn onto it.

Gigi, one of the hottest and most sought-aft...

Why Is Zendaya So Upset With 'Fashion Police' Host Giuliana Rancic?

Zendaya Coleman
Zendaya Coleman was shocked when "Fashion Police" host Giuliana Rancic accused her of smelling like marijuana because she wore dreadlocks at the Oscars on Sunday night. Coleman walked the red carpet in a floor-length white gown with long dreadlock extensions.

During an Academy Awards special episode of "Fashion Police" that aired on E! on Monday, Rancic said of Coleman's look, "I feel like she smells of patchouli oil... maybe weed."

Coleman was very offended by the description. In response to the dig, the "K.C. Undercover" and "Shake It Up!" star wrote on Instagram:
