New York Observer Rex Reed recently said quite a few unpleasant things about Melissa McCarthy when reviewing Identity Thief, her recent comedy with Jason Bateman. More specifically, he called her “tractor-sized” and refers to the starring pair as “Mr. Bateman and his female hippo.” … More

Did anyone else grow up playing The Sims? Sure you did. Did anyone else go real far down the rabbit hole of internet downloading (at TheSimsResource, perhaps?) so you could customize your Sim families with characters from television, comics and assorted pop culture ephemera? We used to download hundreds of skins–you know, so we could finally make Buffy and Spike happy together. By which we mean, Melissa McCarthy looks exactly like a shitty version of that–the incompetent mapping of human features across a digital canvas. More
Earlier today, we told a friend we couldn’t hang out later because we’d be covering the 2013 MTV Movie Awards ceremony. “MTV Movie Awards?” she said, flabbergasted. “That’s still a thing?” And so it is, friends. So it is.
And so, this evening, we’re liveblogging the MTV Movie Awards red carpet. We’ll be updating with our wisecracks as fast as we can keep up with the photo databases, so: check back, refresh often and laugh with us.
Welcome to the world’s only awards ceremony with worse fashion than the Grammys. More
Last night’s Oscars ceremony was perhaps the longest in history. Lucky for us, though, the red carpet was surprisingly interesting–with clear winners, obvious losers and a lot of unusual looks and light risks in between.

Six men! I know women aren’t good at math, but here are the pictures and we can count them together (you’re allowed to use your fingers). More
Much has been made of the Academy’s bizarre nominations this year–and their many glaring omissions. Although everyone in the Best Supporting Actress and Best Actress camps is obviously a talented lady, we’re still left with an extremely conservative group, sartorially speaking. We tried to figure out a dress or two for every woman in question, but of the ten, only four are known for ever taking anything resembling a risk: Rooney Mara, Michelle Williams, Jessica Chastain and Bérénice Bejo. Here are our hopes and predictions for Sunday. More
Each time I think it’s not possible for me to like this lady any more than I already do, she goes on television and says yet more awesome things. More
It involves a sweater, some construction workers, and a whole lot of embarrassment. More
I hope it’s better than her Emmys dress! Just kidding, I liked her Emmys dress. More
