The four hour long lullaby known as The Academy Awards will be airing this Sunday, and if you're not pumped to see Billy Crystal try and save this sinking ship for the ninth time, then you agree with most Americans who view the whole thing as a yawn-inducing, if obligatory, formal event. But despite the Academy's ongoing effort to ensure that the show is as bland and inoffensive as a bowl of tapioca, things happen on live TV. Here's a list of the 11 wildest moments, from cross dressers to streakers, F-bombs to on-stage kisses, from Oscars past. More»

"This is why they invented TiVo," said my dad as he fast-forwarded and repeatedly groaned "this is brain damage" throughout the entire broadcast of the Oscars. I think he was right. Last night we learned there's at least one thing James Franco can't do, and that is save the Oscars from being horribly, painfully boring. More»

It would be a sick joke to sit here and remind you that it's Oscar weekend since the biggest Hollywood circle jerk of the year has probably had a direct effect on your life in one aspect or another if you live in L.A. We already know the ceremony will be deathly boring but I'm concerned it will do to James Franco for me what it did to Hugh Jackman when it turned into a VH1 Divas Live show that year. Sad... But let's get to the parties with open bar, and there are lots of them this weekend so you might as well take advantage. All of the weekend festivities can be found on our calendar, but we've selected the best Oscar-related events of the weekend for you here in our 2011 Oscar Weekend Party Guide! More»

As we all know, this Sunday marks the 83rd Annual Academy Awards, or as it's known to advertising executives, the Gay Superbowl. Ostensibly the crown jewel of the Hollywood awards season, the Oscars honor excellence in film, bestowing accolades on only the most important, revered and timeless movies, and Shakespeare In Love. And while the laundry list of Oscar mistakes is already a sizable one (hey, Al Pacino, can I get a "HOO-AH?"), there's no reason why the incestuous, petulant, self-important Academy can't etch a few more clunkers for us to mock for all time.

So we were reading something the other day about 'the Oscar curse'. Supposedly, once an actress reaches their career peak of winning an Academy Award, their personal life all falls to shit. The silly superstition got us wondering: is it the Oscar or the husband?
